I'm a new bee and this is my first post(i really hope its in the right section).
I'm in a bit of trouble and a friend of mine mentioned posting on the forum for help and advice i really hope some of you can help.
I have made a cocktail recipe making video (70mins) and a e-recipe book to go with it (30pages) and I'm trying to sell it as a digital download package together. I have also made a free cocktail video and recipe to give out as a taster if people sign up to the newsletter. The main video is great as it offers chapter skip between all the cocktails (20), tips and a into into how to use thing around your house with out having to purchase cocktail equipment, the video also is able to play on all devices iPhone, iPad etc and there is a streaming option too. The book works well to as it helps you if you get stuck through out the video and has menus and quantities.
The problem that i have is that it has not made 1 sale since going live 2 months ago and it is really getting me down after putting so much effort into it. I thought that this would be a great seller for the christmas period but it is just not selling panic is starting to set in as i have nearly spent all my budget and I'm going away to for 3 months after new year and don't want to give up on this project, i thought that i would at least make a few sales on the run up to christmas and then i could re-invest that money to make more videos.
I have $500 left, that is all the money i have in the world at the moment. I have a few ideas on what to spend it on but I feel that If i do this i'm just going to see my money disappear and will be left with nothing.
I was going to spend money on a Elance copywriter to make me a Click Bank sales page at $500 and see if that would start to bring in a sensible revenue.(Also CB and JVZoo look like a mind field to me)
Another avenue was thinking of getting help from Elance with a google ads campaign but i feel that this might just see all the money disappear and the freelancer bill cost the leftover budget and not have any cash for the actual Ad?
I also thought about getting DVD's made up on kunaki.com and sell them on amazon or ebay? This though will take 10days to receive my sample and my worry is that time is running out for christmas.
I have also tried to add to a few deal sites but can't seem to take it on there due to some code generator to sell there end so thats not looking to good either as this was going to be a plan B.
I am running twitter and about to start my blog for the long term stratagy to make a business, but not seeing much of that happening with the way things are going at the moment.
If anyone has any advice or can help i'm all ears as i'm getting to the end of my tether and thinking of giving up on this which i feel would be a real shame as i really do believe in the product.
I look forward to your posts. If you want to have a look at my site to see where I'm going wrong check out popularcocktailrecipes.com
