1. Write a few short reports in the field of mind power/self improvement niche
- to be specific, let's say it is about managing your emotions so that it does not interfere with your daily life.
- the meat of the report would be along the lines of helping one to understand how emotions can take control of oneself and providing a few ideas on how to identify and manage the things which severely affects him/her.
2. take the reports and put them up as a WSO to build a list and also as way to obtain feedback about the report and seed ideas for the next reports.
-lets say you call them the "5 dollar mind bites" and charge them 5 bucks. 5 bucks should be alright. Write that sales copy from your heart and tell them what you are trying to impart in the report. I believe in this sort of thing.
3. Repeat until have a list and start solo ad blasts to gain more subscribers.
use real content, bits of useful stuff which they may not have time to look for/can't be bothered to look for/lazy/dont know where to look for.
4. So, now you just recompile all your hot reports, add in a few more info and package them as a $10 report.
OK now, just let me play with some numbers ok haha
So after a repeating step 3 a few times...ok many times.. you get like 10,000 people on your lists from ad blasts/swaps/forums/anyway you want to tell people about your reports..
I.e. 10,000 people waiting on you to release your next report.
say 10% converts, 1000 x 10 dollars: $10,000.00 instantly.
5. Let's take this one step further.
Create a sales page for each of the hot reports (yeah the 5 dollar reports), allow affiliates to sell them for 100% commissions. and yes, you will still have your main site where all your reports are.
Use those scripts like rapid action profits.
-affiliates will bring other affiliates in.buyers turn into affiliates knowing you make easy 100% commission. these affiliates will bring in more buyers who will turn into affiliates etc...
-when you release a new report, you get to announce it first to your list since whoever who bought your report, via affiliate or not, will have to go thru your opt in. cha ching.
- buyers of the other affiliates will go to your main site and buy your other reports.
So, you now have a method to create your leads and grow your list. tada.
However, this is contingent upon whether your product does indeed provide value. you ever picked up a good book that you just can't put done and just want to finish reading it, as if your livelihood depended on your finishing and turning each page and the longer you read, the more entrenched you become in the world of that little book. yeah? aim to create stuff like that. stuff that makes your mind explode. stuff to inspire works on me.
