I'm going to be starting a video and ebook tutorial package on using certain features in Adobe After Effects CS5.

I am terrible at sales!

I know there's loads of people out there on the internet who would help sell it, for commissions. I saw a thread about somebody offering to make you millions for your product.

So now I'm asking....

How to go about finding somebody....

How much commissions should the get?

And how do the payments work?

Thanks.

    A lot of the best guys won't do it for you because their payment depends on the value of your product, and on you actually paying them after you get sales.

    You are best off placing an ad in the JV section and hope someone who is just starting but has the skills replies.

      How much money would you say they'd be investing at first to promote it?

    You can try adding your prodcut to clickbank, lots of people there looking to become affiliates for good products. And the higher the commissions the more interested people will become.

    I have heard of some people giving away 100% commissions (on digital products with 0 production cost), and those people make sure to build a list. So they can sell other stuff to the person and still earn money from them, even though they gave away 100%. But i would recommend 50-75% if it is a digital product.

      I thought about Clickbank, but I'd rather stay away I think. Don't you have to pay a fee to list your product on there?

    Why not launch a WSO right here on the Warrior Forum? WSO stands for Warrior Special offer.

    See here

    Warrior Special Offers Forum

    Lots of good courses around to teach you everything you need to know to succeed with one as well (some are themselves WSO). The one by WF user icun is probably the best but thats just my opinion.

      Thanks but I really don't have a lot of money to splash around just now. Unless there's some course under $10, then I'm out. Sound like a cheap-skate but want to make more money before I invest

        Sorry to have to tell you, but that is the complete WRONG mindset.

        Your invest then make money, not the other way around - Thats how it works generally in life.

        By the way just to be clear I am not selling anything here

        I can pretty well guarantee you will fail with that approach -Sorry to be blunt but thats just the way it is - I've seen it far too often with so many people.

        You have to invest in yourself - Doesn't have to be money, time is another in researching and learning.

        Often it's good to spend a little cash to short cut your success but that is not essential - Just be prepared for the learn it yourself method to take a lot longer as you go through all the pitfalls and experience on your road to success.

          Hahaha! I was going to say the same thing, but I held back.

          Anyway, it seems the OP has a long way to go. If he humbles himself he will learn and succeed.

    Just to clarify, you wasn't specific about this. Is it copywriters you are looking for? That's how I read it but I could be wrong.

      I'd make my product, they'd sell it using various methods they know, whether it be a landing page or email marketing, and they get commissions for every sale they make?

      Don't think that's copywriters is it?

      Sorry if I wasn't clear.

    No problem, sound like an affiliate program is best for you but you do need a landing page so you're going to either need to get creative or hire someone for it.

    When you put it on affiliate networks (google it to find the best ones, clickbank included) then affiliates get the chance to look at it and promote it.

    Attracting the big guys is tough and you need a combination of great ad copy, a great product and the potential for big sales.

    The ideal way to do things at the start, when you don't have the big name of the big list to trade off, is to split it into a few offers, give 100% commission on the front end but 0 on the back end. In short, this means that the affiliates bring you the traffic for all your profit, and you benefit in two ways. By capturing the emails of the buyers (proven targeted buyers are worth a lot) and by your upsells, for example, they bought a book off you, but in doing so they can purchase your video course too which you get the profit from.

    Hope this explains it for you but I can always clarify.
