Spur of the moment thing: released a video from my training as a free WSO, upsell to the membership product.
Email to my list giving direct access to the download page. Could have sent them via the squeeze page but decided not to since they were already on my list – upside is that they’re not added to another list on Aweber, downside is that Warrior Plus doesn’t get as many sales so I don’t attract as many affiliates.
Now 6 signups for the freebie, 4 of which are new to my list, all via the standard Warrior Plus email out to people matched by keywords. No upsells yet.
Thanks – I probably also qualify as a procrastinator but learned a long time ago to start something fast so that I give myself less chance to procrastinate or delay stuff.
Keep at it, set aside some time regularly so that your internet marketing gradually becomes a habit.
And, as Sean has said on quite a few occasions, even relatively small things done regularly build up over time – I just shocked myself with the number of videos and slide shares I’ve done (I don’t normally pay attention to figures like that!)
Thanks for that – might be a bit inconsistent over the next few days as my routine will be changing between now and early next week (am taking a friend’s daughter to school Thursday and Friday amongst other things) so I don’t know how much I’ll be able to do but hopefully I’ll still get some things done.
OK, used some (normally dead) time to write a 15 slide presentation, record it (just over 7 minutes), upload to YouTube & SlideShare and do some quick promo. Tweeted about the video, posted on LinkedIn about the document share (I’ve remembered that SlideShare is owned by LinkedIn so figure they might be biased to people promoting their own sites) and have put up a post on Google+ about the video (same logic about ownership). Plus I’ll tell my list the content is available.
A handful of people who’ve not been on my list before – it’s not taken off as an offer but it was rushed out. Will know next week whether the two $1 trials for the membership pay at least their first full month. It’s my cheaper membership offering at just under $10/month, retention seems to vary anything from just the first 7 days up to a couple of years.
Next offer (which won’t be for at least a week) I need to do a better funnel and will probably re-test either a $1 initial, $3 upsell, $7 upsell or a $3-ish starting price (Barb Ling style) plus a couple of upsells.
Have also just joined Reed Floren’s IM giveaway and paid the $10 upsell to be allowed to give away more offers. Will get those sorted and uploaded over the weekend or early next week.
I don’t launch as many WSOs as I used to – it’s a treadmill if you’re not careful but they still work (albeit almost everyone’s new ones aren’t actually on the Warrior Forum)
This section of the forum is interesting because “going public” with things is a good way of getting further forward. Psychologically we think the whole world is now watching what we’re doing so there’s an added incentive to actually do it.
