This site is actually the fruition of 5 years of brainwork.
Early feedback says the site loads very slowly so I'm going to fix that. Thanks everyone!
I used to do focus groups in New York and sort of did them as a sport/hobby. I wrote it all down and decided to make it a kindle book, which I did, but also to make it a site that could offer a listing of groups to potential participants, and to offer advertising space to the recruiters and market research companies that have deep pockets.
I used to make 500-1000 a month doing the groups, but I knew where to look. People asked me to write it all down, so I did.
So, what I have is a unique selling point-- I wrote the insider's guide. I broke the insiders guide to an online course loaded in an autoresponder, and I created a quick start guide to finding focus groups easily on craigslist.
So, what I am trying to do is get opt ins, and I just launched the site 2 weeks ago.
I've already gotten a bunch of opt ins, and am taking it slowly.
The opt in offer is the QUICK START GUIDE to finding paid focus groups.
That gets you in, and you get the online course, and then get offered the ebook for 7.00.
I've already sold ONE!! so exciting. I was thinking it would be a good affiliate program for the survey folks, etc, and offer the book at 7-10.
Lots of cpa offers for a potential big list.
My goal is to build a lot of traffic, twitter and opt ins. Then start to sell recurring advertising and such to the agencies.
I'm doing this as kind of a labor of love. It's not my million dollar idea. But it might be my 2-5000 a month idea if I do it right.
This niche goes to students, survey people, income, jobs, part time jobs, extra income, stay at home moms, etc.
I really only have one competitor at www.findfocusgroups.com and he's not building a list and has about 6 years ahead of me. But I've corresponded with him and he's just a guy, not a warrior.
So, any ideas and help would be welcome.
