I am going to show you a method that can earn you $1000s in a matter of days plus at the same time get you valuable testimonials for your new product. (You are creating your own products, right?) And you don't even need a mailing list to do this.
Let's assume you have written an eBook and the sales page is complete, now all you need are some testimonials. If you don't know what a testimonial is it is simply someone else endorsing your product, this is usually done with a few lines of text explaining how good your product is. If you think testimonials don't work they do, especially if the testimonial is from a recognised name. You will see this all the time on sales pages and the reason you see it all the time is because it works.
Ok, so just how do we get these testimonials and earn money at the same time?
First of all I want you to visit the Warrior Forum at: http://www.warriorforum.com/forum If you have never heard of this forum let me quickly tell you this is probably the biggest and best Internet Marketing forum on the internet and I find myself visiting this forum on a daily basis. If you are new to forums or this forum in particular I would recommend you spend a few days browsing to get a feel for it.
You will notice this forum has many sections but the main section I want you to check out is the Warrior Special Offer section. This is where fellow warriors offer their products and services at a discounted price. This is where you can make a lot of money if you do things right.
What you would do is make a Warrior Special Offer (WSO) for your new eBook. You would explain the eBook is in the pre launch stage and you need testimonials. You would now offer your eBook at a discounted price and ask for a testimonial in return. You would also explain anyone leaving you a testimonial can include a link to their website, this is essential as it is a way of rewarding anyone prepared to do this.
Now you need to understand there are strict rules in the WSO section of the warrior forum and you must obey these rules. The rules are posted at the top of the page and I would recommend you familiarise yourself with these rules. The main rule is the product must be your own. Converted private label material is not allowed so please bear this in mind. If you have created the product yourself you will have no problems. You also have to understand there are many experienced marketers and moderators that can spot a scam a mile off so you have been warned. As long as you are offering a quality product of your own you will have no problems.
As this is a public forum anyone can see your offer and you may get a lot of questions related to your product, you actually want this to happen because if this happens your topic will become a ‘hot topic’ and this will result in even more visitors and in return more sales. You may also get someone trying to put your product down. Whatever you do don't retaliate, just take the info on board and reply in a polite manner. Your reputation is at stake and the last thing you want to do is publicly make enemies. Also offer a 100% no questions asked refund to anyone that is not happy with your product. Make sure you mention this in your post and you will sell a lot more, I guarantee it.
You can even use this section to offer discounts on any of your previous eBooks. As long as you offer a discounted price your offer should be approved. You should also bear in mind many people make a lot of money by offering allsorts of services, this could be anything from copywriting to building a website to writing an eBook and granting private label rights. Just have a look for the hot topics and you will see what is selling right now and this may give you some ideas for future products.
