Fool Proof Tip to Make Money This Week...

...if you have a list.

Yes, this is why the money is in the list folks. Here's the tip:

Just run a limited time Labor Day Sale.

Lower the price of your product and throw in a few 'act fast' bonuses. Make it a four day sale which ends on Labor Day (or something like that).

Make sure you exclude recent customers from the communication and make sure you give them a valid reason for the sale which they'll understand. It could be a "Labor Day Subscriber Appreciation Sale" - as long as there is a real reason.

Hey, Macy's has a sale like every other week why can't you? People love sales and don't want to miss out.

Even if you don't have a product:

Contact a product owner and tell them you're an affiliate with a list. Tell them you want to run a special and need a coupon code or a link for a discount price to offer your subscribers. If they foolishly say no, contact someone else.

Again, throw in a few bonuses to give them after they get the special offer. Make them a deal that they don't want to miss out on.

You can also ask the product owner for some product reviews and reference them in your emails.

This will work even if you have a small list.

Then come back and post your results after the sale :-).

      Personally, I'm tired of "Labor Day Sales" and all the other promotional crap that "screams" to get my attenion without first even considering WHAT MY INTERESTS MAY BE. That SHIT is simply IN YOUR FACE advertising just like on TV. We don't like it there, we don't like it here either. Surely there is a better way to reach only the one who are interested in our product or service. I'm sure the Internet can provide a way for that.

        I understand how you feel, but these two things come to mind.

        1. Have you ever tried to make extra money in this way? And are you making any money online at all?

        2. If not advertising, what method do you recommend? Instead of bashing it outright, why not offer a solution.

        p.s. Thanks for the tip Ron.

        You sound like a consumer rather than an Internet Marketer.

        If you're offering your subscribers a discount, isn't that to their benefit. Of course the plan is to offer them something they are interested in.

          Exactly. What we hate or don't hate doesn't have much bearing on what actually works. Sales work. Trust me. Even though the poster may hate ads on TV, as a person who's been in business for more than 20 years, I could tell to the minute when our advertising was on TV. People are like sheep. Advertising and sales work.

        Is your list not a targeted market? That sounds like a problem with your internet marketing strategy and how your subscribers are qualified and filtered.

        No offense but,

        You sound like a complete idiot...

        Ron I'm actually going to try this and come back with results.

        It fits in since I'm writing a new report for my niche anyway,
        so that can be a great bonus.

        Self Actualization is one's true purpose. Everything
        else is an illusion.

      Holladay driven sales always work out well for me also. Thanks for the reminder though, because I have not currently set up any promotion for this weekend.

        Excellent idea Ron.

        Product owners and affiliates should try and
        take advantage of most holiday's.

        These types of promotions almost always increase
        profits.
