Does anyone in the World need landing page copy?

by Alex Durden 7 replies
Hello!
My name is Alex, I am from Russia.

The situation is as follows:
Here in Russia it is very popular to copy someone's Landing Page: change logo, contacts, setup orders to e-mail and use this landing page selling your stuff. Sometimes I make such landing copies for my clients, it is fast and pretty cheap (about 35 usd).

My idea was to offer such service in the English-speaking market. I can copy practically any landing page and sometimes multipage sites and change nearly everything in it.

So I translated my website into English and made several campaigns in Google Adwords. For today I got about 200 clicks, no orders yet.

Of cause there could be plenty of reasons, including ads, geo, keywords, website and so on. And the amount of clicks is too low to draw any conclusions.

But anyway I'd like to ask for your opinions:
Can it be really needed by someone in the US and other English-speaking countries or maybe I am just wasting my time and should focus on something else?

Thanks)

    You are taking someone's work product (their landing page) - changing a few details and selling it to another person.

    Maybe theft doesn't translate well? Seriously - you are scamming people doing this. You are selling products you don't have rights to.

    Why not build NEW pages and sites for those who buy them from you?

      Not exactly.

      It is mostly spread in affiliate marketing. A person wants to sell some goods, for example baellerry purse (I've no idea whether it is known outside Russia and China). He finds some good landing pages in CPA-networks and instead of building new page asks someone (me, for example) to copy it for him.

      Is it ethical? Not really.
      Is selling PU leather purse under the guise of cow leather ethical? Not really.

      Nevermind, it's a Russian style. (I'm sure that I'll have to use this phrase too often)

    Having been to Russia 4 times, I understand where you're coming from.

    There as you drive the police pull you over or wave you over just to pay them or you will have problems.

    Here in America it doesn't work like that. We can't use other peoples intellectual property without their consent.

    We would go to jail here for accepting what you're offering.

    I know that you likely didn't know, because those rules don't apply where you're from.

    But, they do here.

    So, no, no one but an idiot would take your offer because of the legal problems.

      That's what I was thinking about.
      Intellectual property is not protected in Russia, especially in comparison with the US and Germany for example.

      Seems that I need to think out something else.

      P.S. Enfusia, after your description of Russia I will be afraid of driving along these criminal areas with corrupt cops, schoolgirl-hookers and 10-year-old drug dealers...
      Things are not so bad here, trust me) I've been to some places where the situation is much worse.

        Alex, I was in Rostov On Don and the police would point at you with their baton and you pulled over and gave a few rubles.

        I really liked your tradition of a fight at the wedding though (not all weddings I was told. But the one I was at did). That was a good way to ruin a shirt.

          Tss. The first rule of Fight Wedding Club:
          You do not talk about Fight Wedding Club.

          Everything depends on the city you live in. In Moscow and Saint-Petersburg situation is a bit different from the smaller cities.

          As for me, I had to pay the police only once for driving in the contraflow lane. Even being in the US I had to pay more fines (mostly for illegal parking, though).

    Copy a Landing page ISN'T a work. Why someone would pay for you for being a theft?

    Instead of doing this stupid thing, it's better you take Leadpages and use these landing page, tested and build your own.

    Adapt an opt in page from Leadpages AND build your own list around a specific niche.

    Then provide an uniqueness solution for this, free report and nurture leads, then sell.

    You can build a business in the long term and not waste money on adwords, which sooner will ban you for promoting stolen products.
