Sell my own product to new vistors or...

by HappyLuke 4 replies
Guys,
I have a new domain name, ranking organically #3 for a natural pill.

Getting decent unique traffic with about 4-5 hours total work.

I was planning to have my own pill manufactured to sell, but my buddy said "NO!".

He told me to write a free report and build the list.

What do you guys think?

As he put it, "One night stand, versus long term relationship." <-- Seriously, my buddy said that...

    One of them is definitely easier than the other. The regulations for pill manufacturing are quite strict at best. To put that into perspective, you would have to find a proper sealant package for the pills; which could be the bottle/tin sealing for the mouth of the lid, with the final plastic seal covering the cap itself. Unless, of course, you were using the single pill casing, wherein each pill was encased individually; even still.... that alone is one issue that can become a nightmare on so many levels.

    I have read many stories of marketers being screwed over just on that basis alone, arguing with the manufacturing companies; arguing with the packaging companies.... all kinds of issues on that level.

    The other one, however, does not require the same kind of care...

    Also, pills have side effects, pills have real dangers; no matter what it is... someone out there may not use it properly, or may expect certain results and whatnot else... which is really just a different area altogether than a list and a digital product.

    I know both would take work anyway; but the pill thing should be very carefully planned out, just because now you are involving the health of someone else, and a bunch of other standards.

    Is there a reason, however that you could not work on both? You said he's telling you to write a free report.... well that doesn't really cost you anything, if you are actually writing it yourself. A list may cost you a bit.

    I would imagine, however, even still; that a list can also be built so that your marketing material is already ready to go for whoever comes on board. If you know what I mean? I am talking about already having your emails written up, that way you don't constantly have to keep on doing it over and over.

    Some maintenance, and tweaking of course.... but I am not seeing how writing a report and working on a list alone could stop your actual desire for another business venture? Especially when that same list, when built, could be used for your own product, when it finally goes through and is approved?

    The two could be so very related; and it would therefore, be important to build that list and maybe heed your friends' recommendations at this time, just because of that fact.

    In America anyone can go straight to the top. And here's what's exciting- It is the bottom that is crowded, not the top.
