Before You Launch Your Product – Learn All You Can About Your Market

Imagine you’re a Harley Davidson owner and lover who’s thinking of using Product Launch Formula to release a range of specialist products targeted to other Harley owners and enthusiasts.

You’ve built a list of people who are Harley Davidson riders and enthusiasts, but prior to your launch, you’d been sending emails with content and offers for anything other than Harley stuff.

You can probably imagine what sort of results you’d end up with…

You might be a chuckling a little and thinking that you’d never make such a stupid mistake. And yet at some level at least, you might be making this mistake right now. That is, you might be sending out content and offers without really understanding who the people in your market are and what they want.

Let’s look at an even more common example, one that I’ve seen on several occasions…

Every so often an email will turn up from an internet marketer that starts out with “Hey, Dude.”

Obviously the marketer who does this is excluding a whole lot of people from reading his message, including:

  • Men over the age of about 30
  • Professionals of any age who don’t like being referred to as “dude.”
  • Women 🙂

Of course “Hey, Dude” might be perfectly fine if the email list is comprised of young men age 15-25 who like to ride surfboards or skateboards. But when you’re email list is full of supposedly professional marketers, you’re just driving down the response rate you’re going to get.

So here’s the point of all of this…

If you want people on your email list who read your messages, click through to your content and offers, and who buy the stuff you recommend, then you better learn as much as you can about those people your.

Some of the demographic and psychographics data you want to find out are:

  • Are they male or female
  • Their age range
  • Where they live
  • Their highest education level
  • The sort of jobs and careers they have
  • How much money they earn
  • What sort of words and jargon they use when they talk to each other
  • What they like to do with their free time
  • When and were they go on vacation
  • How much money they spend on their hobbies
  • What their problems and frustrations are
  • What makes them nervous or afraid
  • What motivates and inspires them
  • What their goals and dreams are
  • What sort of products or services they’ve tried to solve their problems
  • What sort of products and services they are already buying in your market

Once you know these things, you’ll be able to create an accurate Customer Avatar or “profile” of your ideal customers, and send them content that really connects with speaks directly to them. And you’ll be able to send out promotions for products and services that they’re fairly certain to buy.

So how do you figure out all this stuff about your market?

First off, using the Harley Davidson market as an example, you can survey people to learn more about their needs, wants and problems. One great way to to use Ryan Levesque’s Ask Formula and do a Deep Dive Survey.

But even when you use a Deep Dive survey can sometimes give you skewed results. That’s because what people say they want and what they actually DO can be two quite different things.

Secondly, you can learn a lot about your market by rolling up your sleeves and doing some market research. Looking through popular marketplaces like Amazon.com, search for your keywords (such as “Harley accessories” or “Harley touring” or “Harley vacations”), and find out what the people in that market are already buying.

Once you know what they’re already buying, then you can do three things:

1. Send out content based around these topics

2. Send offers promoting the products they’re already buying

3. Source or create your own similar products and promote them too

And finally…

One way to really get inside your prospects’ heads is to spend some time with them (f you were in the Harley market this is a given). Best way to do this (whenever possible) is to become part of the target market for a while.

For example, if you are not into Harley bikes but instead your target market is hydroponic gardeners, then you ought to start your own hydroponic garden so that you fully understand your market’s needs, desires, problems and frustrations.

What’s more, you need to get in to conversations with people in your target market and really spend some time listening to them. That’s right, you can start eavesdropping on your market.

Here are good places to do it:

  • Niche forums
  • Relevant Facebook groups
  • Discussions on niche-relevant Facebook Pages
  • Discussions in the comments sections of blogs
  • Questions and answers on sites like Quora.com
  • Reviews of popular products on sites like Amazon.com
  • Comments on niche-relevant videos on YouTube.com

The more time you spend learning about what the people in your market want and need, the easier it will be for you to connect with your subscribers. You’ll create better content, send better offers, and start making more sales.

How To Grow Your Product Launch List Using Content Upgrades

As you prepare to implement your Product Launch Formula training during your launch, or even as you continue to grow your business after you’ve launched, building your email database is one of the core activities that never ends.

The problem these days is that it’s never been harder to get real email addresses from people, because they are so over-marketed to and they are sick of getting emails pitching them stuff all day every day.

To get somebody’s real email address, you need to offer them something they REALLY want to get their hands on. That’s why offering a Content Upgrade is such a terrific strategy.

So what is a Content Upgrade?

Well as the name suggests, it’s a piece of additional, related content that ‘upgrades’ the users’ experience on your website.

For example, let’s say you’ve written an epic blog post showing people how to set up an automated follow up sequence using an autoresponder.

The perfect Content Upgrade for that post might be:

  • A PDF containing 20 pre-written autoresponder messages that help your reader introduce themselves to their new subscribers, share a series of valuable tips and ideas, and then make it easy to promote a product or services to monetise their list
  • A PDF containing a list of the best 101 email subject lines that have been tested and proven to work
  • A video explaining the content of your post in more detail, along with your personal tips and advice on getting the most value out of the information you’ve shared
  • A PDF copy of THE POST ITSELF (see an example on this page) so people can download a copy of your post to their computer and refer to it later…

All of these ideas can be used to create an awesome Content Upgrade in virtually any market.

______________________________________________

So why bother going to the trouble of creating these ‘upgrades’ for your business.

Conversions. That’s why…

The typical website optin rate (not counting dedicated landing pages or ‘squeeze’ pages) can be anything from 0 to 10% (and 10% is very rare).

But to give you an idea just how powerful this strategy can be, here’s the conversion rates of just a few of my LeadBoxes (created using LeadPages.net) that offer upgrades for some of my longer blog posts.

PLF Content Upgrade Conversions

As you can see, the optin rate ranges from 39% to 120%!

Why so high?

Because the people opting in are requesting more information on a topic they have just read about on the website.

So for example, the people who requested the The 1-2-3 List Building Cheat Sheet are doing so while reading a post about building an email list.

The people who requested The 24 Hour Product Creation Cheatsheet are reading a post about creating your own products. The others are the same.

The upgrades are closely related to the content people are ALREADY reading so they are (in context), which is why the conversions from clicks to subscribers is so high.

Does everyone who reads the post click on the link? No, only the people who are INTERESTED in learning more.

And some of those people are interested enough to pay for information or services that will help them shortcut the process…

Some Content Upgrade Examples

So now you understand the opportunity, let’s look at a bunch of ideas other people are currently using to grow their email databases…

This an example from the LeadPages.net blog.

Here’s one from another LeadPages post…

This one offers a free affiliate marketing course as a ‘Related Resource’ on a post about, you guessed it, affiliate marketing…

This one offers a Free Infographic on how to use Facebook advertising…

Here’s one from Hubspot offering their ‘Sales Objections Cheatsheet”

Here’s another Hubspot example offering a free guide on How To Use Facebook For Business.

Content Upgrade Hubspot

Here’s one from a great post on the LeadPages blog discussing how to add a personal touch to your high-tech marketing.

Content Upgrade Personal

And here’s an awesome example from Marisa Murgatroyd from a blog post teaching why storytelling is important in business…

Melissa Content Upgrade

So as you can see, there are a lot of ways you can use this technique to increase the number of people joining your product launch list.

I’d love to hear how from you in the comments below on how you are implementing this technique as part of your product launch list building.

Post Product Launch Strategy – 7 Proven Steps That Compel Your Customers To Buy More Stuff More Often

Running a Product Launch Formula based launch is an awesome way to generate a bunch of sales quickly, while building the bond you have with your audience.

But honestly, a launch takes a LOT of work, and you don’t want to be constantly ‘launching’ stuff or your readers will end up with ‘launch fatigue’ and just stop opening your messages.

So what do you do in those times between your launches to keep up the momentum, keep your audience happy, and make more money?

Well in addition to just sending them awesome content that helps them improve their lives, or running regular Flash Sales (as we discuss here), and taking advantage of some of these 17 was to generate more sales with your autoresponder

…one great idea that’s inexpensive and works like magic is to spend some time optimising your order forms for when somebody does buy from you (this will make your affiliates LOVE you too).

When you think about it, by the time somebody gets from somewhere else online to your website, reads your content, decides to buy and arrives at your order form, you have a prospect with a credit card already in their hot little hand, and they are in a buying frame of mind.

That means there’s a good chance if you put another related offer in front of them while they are going through your order process (the proverbial, “would you like fries with that?”), they’ll often be happy to take it.

And when you get the ‘order form bump’ or up-sell offer right, you’ll start making more money with every customer who comes to your website, or walks through your door.

So what’s the secret to creating a backend or upsell offer that gets your prospects clicking the “Yes, Add This To My Order” button on your order page?

You do it like this…

______________________________________________

______________________________________________

1. Make Sure the Up-sell Adds To And Enhances The Main Offer

The very first thing you need to do is make sure any upsell you offer is tightly related to the main offer. The best way to do it is to make it not only closely related, but something that actually enhances the use, utility, or enjoyment of the thing they purchased in your main offer.

A classic example is McDonalds. When you order a Big Mac, any well-trained staff member will ask if you want fries and/or a drink with that. It clearly works because a lot of people say yes to this offer, because if you’re into fast food, fries and a drink enhance the enjoyment of your burger.

Now you can do the same thing regardless of what you’re selling. For example:

  • If you’re selling a weight loss app, you could offer a low-fat cookbook or a collection of smoothie recipes as an up-sell on your order form
  • If your main offer is an email copywriting course, you can offer a number of personal copy critiques on the backend
  • If your main product is all about setting up and running a successful Accountancy Practice, You can offer tools on the backend, such as a course on generating leads, or a package of marketing campaigns that have worked successfully for others
  • Say your main product is a “how to manage your debtors” course. You can offer an upsell that includes resources like a debt management checklist and workbook, and 5 personalised debt-management counselling sessions with you or one of your advisors
  • If you main product is a set of weightlifting training videos, you can offer the weights themselves as an up-sell

So the idea here is not to just toss any old offer in front of your prospects and hope for the best. Make sure your up-sell and main offer go together like… well, like Big Macs and fries.

MAJOR CAVEAT: Do NOT leave anything critical to getting the results your customer expects out of your core product, and try to offer the ‘missing piece’ as an up-sell.

You’ve probably seen offers like this before. You buy a product that promises X result, and then you are offered an up-sell that basically says “Well the thing you just purchased won’t work properly unless you also buy this other thing…”

Not only will this piss your customer off and stop them buying your up-sell, you’ll probably lose the initial sale, and the customer’s future business as well. Plus they are likely to give you negative reviews and bitch about you to everyone they know.

Not good…

OK, so next up…

2. Offer an Irresistible Deal

Putting a related offer in front of your prospects is a great way to increase your sales. But turning that offer into an irresistible, no-brainer deal is even better.

Let’s look at the fast food example again. If you order a burger with a small fries and drink, the person taking your order will likely ask you if you’d like to “super-size” your order for just a small extra charge. The reason this works so well (to the tune of BILLIONS of dollars every year) is that the deal is irresistible.

You get yourself a LOT more of what you want for just a little bit more money.

And it doesn’t matter what you’re selling, you can do the same thing in your business.

For example:

“I usually charge $997 up front and $397 per month for this sort of coaching. But as a valued member of my new Stock Trading group, you’ll get a special price of just $197 per month for this same high-quality coaching, and I’ll waive the up-front setup fee entirely…”

“And you’re not locked in. Try out the program for a full month, and if you feel it isn’t for you for any reason, let me know and I’ll give you a full refund, no questions asked…”

If you are a trader and you’ve just purchased a Stock Trading product, this sort of offer would be virtually impossible to refuse…

One more example. I know a well top marketer in the supplements market who makes an irresistible offer for his core product, and then offers an up-sell consisting of more of the exact same product for an even lower per-pack price.

So people buy 2 packs of something they know they want (and will likely continue to use) for $49.00 with free shipping, and then because they’ve just made a purchase, they are offered another FOUR packs of the exact same product for just $49.00 as a reward.

And as a result, his sales are BOOMING…

One final thing before we move on. Creating an irresistible offer is so important to the results of your Flash Sale that I’ve put together a Free Cheat Sheet that shows you how to create the perfect offer. To make sure you don’t miss anything as you develop your offer, click here to grab your Free copy of The Perfect Offer Cheatsheet

Ok, next up…

3. Make Use Of Short-Form Copy

So now you’ve got an eager prospect sitting on your order page with their credit card in their hot little hand, it is NOT the time to put another long sales letter or sales video in front of them.

They’re eager and ready to buy. If you put another intimidating wall of text or video in front of your prospects, you might just have them hitting the back button and abandoning the order form, never to be seen again.

SIDEBAR: There are plenty of studies to show that the shopping cart or order page abandonment rate runs as high as 95% for some merchants. That’s why optimising your order page to improve conversions, and minimising friction as much as possible is one way to generate a whole lot of free money.

You’ve already done the hard work of getting them into the kind of emotional state needed for them to buy, so you’ve already built your credibility and established trust to some extent.

You don’t need to do any of that again.

Now all you need to do is simply focus on the benefits and results they can achieve if they take your up-sell offer. The fact is, your up-sell page copy might be nothing more than a results-driven headline, a list of the top benefits, and a action-orientated call to action (such as Yes! I Want This“).

TIP: As with everything you do in your marketing, test to find out for sure what your audience responds to the best. Split test different headlines, your bulleted list of benefits, your call to action and your order button text. You might even test to see if short-form copy beats a short sales video.

You’ll never know until you try.

Next…

4. Frame Your Price (So You Don’t Scare People Away)

You’ve already sold your prospect on purchasing the main offer, and they’ve already agreed to whatever price you’re charging. So when you offer an up-sell, you’ll want to frame the price so that it focuses on the up-sell only.

Let’s look at an example…

Suppose you’re selling a video training course for $97, with an up-sell offer for $27 for an app.

When it comes time to ask for the order, you do NOT want to say this:

“Would you like to add the app to your order, making it a total of $124 for the course and app?”

Suddenly that sounds like it’s going to cost a lot. Your prospect is likely to start second-guessing their purchase “Do I really want this thing after all…”. And in a flash you could lose the whole sale.

Instead, make sure you focus on the price of the up-sell only: “Would you like to add the app to your order for just $27 more?”

Ahhhh… that’s so much better. That sounds like it’s doable. And because the prospect is already planning on spending $97 with you, that extra $27 doesn’t sound like such a big deal, especially when they think about the added enjoyment they will get.

It’s just like when you are buying a car. If you’re like a lot of people, by the time you’ve decided on the make, model, colour and basic accessories, and taken the car for a test drive, it’s a slam dunk for the dealer to up-sell you all sorts of other accessories to ‘personalise’ your car.

And these additional items are always presented in a non-threatening way. Well you can have metallic paint for another $3.00 a month. And a sunroof for just $4.00 a month.

Before you know it, your monthly payment is $100 more than you wanted to pay, but you’ve personalised ‘your’ car to the point where in your mind you already own it, and you just want to get the deal done. You’re excited about driving away in your new vehicle, and there’s no way you’re going to back out of the deal now.

They’ve gotcha 🙂

It’s all in how you frame it for your prospects.

Next…

5. Create a Nagging Sense Of Urgency

Nothing gets people jumping all over your fancy order button like a true sense of urgency. And a great way to create this sense of urgency is by making your upsell offer genuinely scarce.

For example, you might make your up-sell a one-time offer. That means it’s something that’s only available right now while your prospect is on the page.

If she doesn’t grab it now, she won’t be able to get it in the future. Or if the product is available somewhere else, she may be forced to pay full price (yuk!).

An example might be:

“Special one-time offer: add this exercise-planning app to your order right now, and it’s yours for 60% off the normal price. If you leave this page, this special price disappears for good… grab your discount now before it’s gone!”

Next…

6. Use A Compelling Call To Action

Good copywriting rules apply to your up-sell in the same way they do to your main offer. And that means if you just drop the order link in front of your prospects and expect them to click it, you’re going to be disappointed.

Far better instead to create a strong call to action that gets people to act now. You should tell prospects what to do next, and give them a powerful reason to do it.

For example:

Click here now to add this app to your order. And remember, this special 60% off offer disappears when you leave this page, so order now!

Your up-sell page is going to have two options.

  • One option is “Yes, add this to my order.”
  • The option on the other link is, “No thank you, I don’t want this.”

To avoid confusing your prospects, these should be the only two options on the page. People will either add the up-sell to their order and continue with their purchase, or they’ll skip your offer and just stay with their original order.

Now here’s a sneaky but powerful trick you might consider testing…

Phrase your “yes” and “no” options in a way that helps compel people to click on the “yes” option.

For example, say you’re selling some sort of weight-loss information. Your buttons might have these two options:

“Yes, I want to be ready for the beach!”

“No thanks, I don’t want to get rid of my love handles.”

See how that works?

The “yes” option focuses on they outcome they want and provides a benefit. The “no” option asks the prospect to agree with something that they probably don’t want to agree with. That’s going to make them stop and reconsider your offer.

Here’s another example:

“Yes, I want to save money on my electricity bills!”

“No, I’m not ready to save money just yet.”

And one more…

“Yes, I’ ready to find my soulmate.”

“No, I’m ok with being on my own for now.”

And finally…

7. Make It As Easy As Possible

If you followed all the tips above, you should have a prospect who’s as ready as she’ll ever be to complete her order. Now your goal is to make it as easy as possible for her to place that order and grab your up-sell.

The last thing you want at this stage is make your prospects jump through a bunch of hoops. Don’t include unnecessary steps between them and their getting their hands on their order. And don’t put obstacles that create ‘friction’ in the way.

Because if you do, your prospect is likely to lose their enthusiasm and abandon their shopping cart (as I mentioned earlier, up to 95% of people do just that…).

Here are some dos and don’ts to follow:

  • Do make it as easy as one-click. If you’re offering an upsell right after the customer has already filled in the order form, it’s critical that you make it as easy to buy the upsell as clicking one button. In other words, you do NOT want to make your prospect fill out the order form or their credit card all over again. (WARNING: Paypal often makes your customers do this)
  • Don’t make them run through a mind numbing gauntlet of up-sells. You have probably been through sales funnels that three, four, five or even more up-sells (The Warrior Forum and JVZoo are notorious for doing this crap). Quite often people can’t even get to the order form without going through 4 sales videos and accepting or declining every one of these offers.

You know yourself how painful it is to run the gauntlet like this, so don’t do that to your customers! Just put one or at most two well-placed offers in front of them and leave it at that.

  • And if they decline one or both up-sells, send them straight through to the order form. Don’t make them go through a bunch of additional offers. The customer experience sucks and will seriously decrease your conversions (and risk future sales as well).
  • Don’t make people “register” before ordering. If you need your customers to create an account, then have this account automatically created during the purchasing process. Even if the amount of “work” you’re asking the customer to do is the same, framing is the key here. If you suddenly force a customer to “create an account” before they can finish placing an order, they may just dump their cart and disappear.

Ok,so now let’s wrap things up…

Conclusion

You’ve no doubt heard the saying, “Strike while the iron is hot.”

When it comes to making sales, the iron is never going to be as hot as when you have a prospect filling out an order form. That’s why it’s a great time to “strike” by offering an irresistible up-sell offer they simply can’t refuse. So get started on boosting your sales by creating upsells on your order forms today – and increase your conversions using the seven proven ideas you just discovered!

As I mentioned at the start of this post, the list you build during your product launch is going to become your most valuable business asset, and will give you the perfect springboard for creating a profitable, long-term, sustainable business for yourself and your family.

10 Lead Magnets That Are A Perfect Blend Of Information And Promotion

Before you can launch your product successfully, you’re going to need an email list of people to launch to.

And building an email list is really all about traffic generation. When you set up an optin form on a landing page, it’s just a matter of getting more people to visit that page so they can subscribe to your list.

In this article, I want to share the “top 10” Lead Magnets you can use to quickly grow your email database….

Let’s start off with:

1. Planner / Schedule

People don’t just want to know the “step-by-step” of how to do something – they also want to know when to take these steps. And that’s exactly what a planner or calendar will provide for your prospects. For example:

  • A Yearly Planner for Info Product Sellers
  • The Bodybuilder’s 30-Day Plan for Preparing for Your First Competition
  • The Weekly Planner for Homeschooling Moms
  • How to Get Your Home Sold In Just 21 Days

2. Cheat Sheets

These sorts of Lead Magnets give your prospects an overview of how to do something, but they don’t tell them how (exactly) to complete each step. That’s why this Lead Magnet is a good choice for when you’re selling in-depth how-to information on the backend.

For example:

  • The Savvy Saver’s Cheat Sheet for Creating a Household Budget
  • The Aspiring Novelist’s Cheat Sheet for Writing a Bestselling Thriller
  • The Entrepreneur’s Business Brainstorming Cheat Sheet
  • The Dieter’s Cheat Sheet for Dining Out

3. Checklists

A good checklist makes an excellent Lead Magnet, simply because it’s something that your prospects will refer to again and again. Every time they use your checklist, they’ll see your call to action for your paid product.

For example:

  • A 27 Point Bodybuilding Workout for Kettlebell Enthusiasts
  • 50 Point Inspection Checklist for Buying a Used ATV
  • 101 Point Checklist for Starting a New Online Business
  • 25 Point Checklist for Writing a Novel

SIDEBAR: Encourage your prospects to print off the checklist. Depending on what type of checklist it is, they could hang it on the wall or keep it in their pocket. For example, they might keep a workout checklist in their pocket at the gym, whereas they may hang a business-related checklist near their computer.

4. Swipe Files

A swipe file is a collection of content pieces that people can use for inspiration to create similar content. The intent isn’t to copy these pieces, but to use them as springboards to creating your own content.

For example:

  • The Copywriter’s Swipe File, which includes good headlines, sales letters, pay per click ads and other sales copy.
  • The Career Builder’s Swipe File, which includes cover letters and resumes.
  • The Aspiring Novelist’s Swipe File, which includes plot lines as well as queries for sending to publishers.
  • The Professional Speaker’s Swipe File, which includes jokes, openers and other content for speeches.

While the swipe file is used for inspiration, this next Lead Magnet is designed to be used and copied…

5. Templates

These are typically “fill in the blank” tools you can offer your prospects so they can create a content piece or form quickly and easily. These are designed for your prospects to copy, so be sure you create these templates yourself and give your prospects permission to use them.

TIP: If you offer legal forms, be sure to get them created by a licensed attorney.

For example:

  • The Copywriter’s Template Kit, which includes fill-in-the-blank headlines, openers, guarantees and other elements of a sales letter.
  • The Landlord’s Rental Contract Template, which is a fill-in-the-blank legal contract.
  • The Car Dealer’s Template Pack, which includes templates for purchase orders, the bill of sale and other forms typically used in the course of a dealer’s business.
  • The Fitness Boot Camp Template Kit, which includes advertising templates and client contracts for a personal trainer who is setting up a boot camp business.

6. Worksheets

Worksheets contain a series of questions or tasks for the reader to work through in order to plan, evaluate, and move forward in progressing towards an objective.

For example:

  • The Content Marketing Strategy Worksheet
  • Your Wedding Activities And Budget Worksheet
  • P90X Workout Worksheet For The Perfect Routine
  • The Eating Well Goal-Setting Worksheet For Weight Loss
  • The 30-Day Dog Obedience Worksheet

7. Resource Guides

Another thing that your prospects will really enjoy getting is a list of the tools and resources you use on a daily basis in your niche. Your list can include the name of the resource, the pros and cons of the tool, who would benefit most from using the tool, and a link (or affiliate link) to the tool.

For example:

  • 12 Parenting Books That Should Be On Every Parent’s Bookshelf
  • The Six Figure Seller’s Most Trusted Tools and Resources
  • The Beginning Mountain Climber’s Gear List
  • 17 Tools You Need to Start Your Yard Care Business

8. Case Studies

A case study is where you provide the exact progress and results you or someone else achieved using a particular product or service.

The reason why this works so well to sell a product is because it naturally provides proof a product works, so it overcomes the prospect’s main objections. Just be sure to present a lot of hard proof such as pictures, videos, screenshots, measurements or similar evidence.

For example:

  • You can present an eight-week case study showing how well a body transformation program works.
  • A one month case study showing how much money a marketer made selling Amazon affiliate products.
  • A three-day case study showing how a golfer lowered his golf score by using a certain set of clubs.
  • A one-day case study showing how an amateur photographer took better photos after taking an online photography class.

9. Q&A / Interview

This Lead Magnet has a lot of flexibility, as you can offer a text, audio or video interview. Ideally, you should be the person being interviewed (you can ask a colleague or friend to do be the interviewer), and then you can sell your product on the backend.

If you’re promoting affiliate products, then ask the vendor if you can interview him or her to create a Lead Magnet.

For example:

  • An interview with a fishing expert, which reveals three tips for catching trophy trout.
  • An interview with a panel of weight-loss experts, including a nutritionist, a personal trainer, and a doctor.
  • An interview with a professional copywriter to share insider tips and tricks for writing great copy.
  • An interview with a veterinarian to learn to identify common signs of cat illness or pain.

An alternative would be to take the “top 10 most frequently asked questions” on a topic related to your product and answer them yourself. Deliver the answers in either an .mp3 or .pdf.

10. Articles/Blog Posts/Reports

This is a popular Lead Magnet, simply because it’s easy for most people to create an article or report or ebook, convert it to the .pdf format, and offer it for free in exchange for an email address.

TIP: You can take a chapter or two out of an existing paid product to use as your Lead Magnet. Then sell the full product on the backend.

For example:

  • How to Choose Running Shoes That Won’t Break the Bank or Your Body
  • Five Secrets for Lowering Your Golf Score
  • What Dieticians Do When They Want to Lose 10 Pounds
  • How to Quickly and Easily Set Up a Secure WordPress Blog

Great ideas!

How To Increase Your Launch Profits With Passive Recommendations

A simple but very effective way you can increase the long-term profits you make from your Product Launch Formula style launch is to promote products (either your own or affiliate products) inside your product.

It’s particularly easy with products that teach people how to achieve a result using a step-by-step process, because there are going to be additional tools and resources they are going to need to complete the steps involved.

Plus your students are going to run into a hundred technology questions and will be asking about all kinds of other stuff as well.

So what’s the best way to go about this?

I think that would be creating a Rolodex of Resources, and positioning it as a BONUS for your launch, because it will truly save your students wasting tons of time on research, and money if they buy the wrong stuff and have to buy something else.

For example, if your course teaches how to build a website and start selling a product, people need:

  • A domain name
  • Website hosting
  • A website theme
  • Anti-hacking software
  • An autoresponder or CRM
  • SEO training or services
  • Video training or video creation services
  • Content creation tools or services
  • A shopping cart service
  • Product creation training or services
  • Email marketing training or services

And the list goes on…

Your Rolodex can include recommendations for each one of these products or services, and use your affiliate link for each one. You can even negotiate a special deal with each product’s vendor.

This does two valuable things.

It shows your customers you are truly interested in helping them. And many of these people are going to buy those resources through you instead of going elsewhere to purchase and paying full price.

Promoting related, helpful products like this on the backend can lead to huge time and money savings for your customers, and you making significant back-end profits in addition to the money you make during your launch.

And as a big bonus, you don’t have to give ANY of this additional affiliate revenue (which is 100% pure profit) to your Joint Venture partners or affiliates.

Just another big benefit of launching you own product using the Product Launch Formula process.

If you’d like to learn more about using a product launch to grow the sales and profits for your business, you can do that here.

2 Big Product Launch Benefits Many People Forget About

We’ve been looking at many of the major benefits of using the Product Launch Formula process to release a new product or service in recent articles, but there are two big ones that many people don’t realise.

The first one is that you can create a lot of raving fans who become evangelists for you and your company.

And the second is that even those people who don’t become raving fans often feel a much closer relationship with you because the get to see the ‘real’ you, and see (maybe for the first time) that your really are trying to help them.

As you know, the best customers are those who know, like and trust you. They tend to buy more of your stuff, pay higher prices with less resistance, complain less, and bring their friends and family into your business.

A product launch can help you to identify these awesome customers, and single them out for special attention so they feel even more special.

How do you find them?

One way is to watch the comments people leave for you during your launch. Many of your biggest fans will self-select and raise their hands by writing wonderful comments in the Facebook comments area of your launch blog.

They’ll shout your praises and tell everybody else that you are awesome, often share the results they’ve achieved using your stuff, and sometimes even tell people why they should buy your product or service.

Importantly, you’ll also see a few people raising objections to buying in the comments, and this gives you a chance to address those objections in your future launch videos, in your video sales letter when the time comes, and the emails you send people during the week your launch is live.

You just have to look at the comments on Jeff Walker’s PLF Launch Blog (it may no longer be live depending on when you read this, so I’ve included a small screen shot below – note there were 2047 comments when I took this!)

Product Launch Formula Facebook Comments

As you can see, there’s a LOT of interaction and relationship-building going on during Jeff’s launch. Of course you’d have to assume the master of the online product launch is going to have that for his.

But what about you? Honestly, while the numbers will be smaller (especially when you are starting out), you can get the same kind of interaction with your launch when you follow the PLF process.

You can learn more about that process for yourself by watching Jeff’s free video training here.

3 More Powerful Benefits Of Using A Product Launch Instead Of Using Hope Marketing

Over the last few posts, we’ve talked about some of the benefits of using the Product Launch Formula process to launch a product or service with a bank instead of a whimper.

We’ve looked at the overall strategy, how to create a Crushing Offer to supercharge your sales, and how to put your list building on steroids by having lots of other people build your list for you.

In this post, we’ll look at 3 more benefits of using the process of ‘launching’ your product instead of going the old way and trying to grow organically which can be long, hard and fraught with risk.

The 3 big benefits we’re talking about are:

  • Massive Positioning Power
  • The Product Launch Parachute
  • Launch Stacking

So let’s look at what these 3 benefits are in more detail.

You always get Massive Positioning Power when you launch because even with a Seed Launch, you are showing your prospects and customers the depth of your skill and knowledge on the topic your product or service is based around.

When you get to your JV launch, you get to spread the word about you and your authority by having a bunch of launch partners send your message to THEIR subscribers and social media followers.

As you can imagine, this gives you massive positioning in the eyes of people who are ideal prospects for you.

The Product Launch Parachute is what Jeff calls the ability of a product launch to survive even the most egregious mistakes and still work really well.

Because you are using a proven process that has a bunch of in-built systems working together, if you miss one, two or even more, the others act as an insurance policies for the overall launch.

So you can miss sending an email, or use the wrong subject line, or have a sales video that is less than spectacular, or have some partners who don’t mail on the right days, or whatever.

Even when a heap of things go wrong, the Product Launch Parachute has a great history of rescuing product launches that with any other system could have ended in disaster.

And perhaps the most powerful benefit of using a launch is Launch Stacking. This is where you go from your Seed Launch, to your Internal Launch, to your Joint Venture Launch

And then you take the list you built during that process, and launch either the sale product again with different (or the same) partners, OR you launch a brand new product to that nice big list.

This can give you so much momentum that your business never looks back.

Using Product Launch Formula To Put Your List Building On Steroids

One of the most powerful (and ultimately profitable) things about using Product Launch Formula is the giant list build you are able to do when you run a JV launch.

You could have 5, 10 or even 20 launch partners all mailing your awesome pre-launch content out to their people, and every one of those people joins YOUR email database when that happens so they can participate in the process.

That means you can grow your list exponentially, while only paying affiliate commissions to your JV partners AFTER their people buy your product or service.

You get to KEEP all of those prospects, and you can sell to them later on.

And while it’s a good idea to pay your JV partners for future sales you make of your products (but you don’t have to), you NEVER have to give those JV partners any of the profits you make from any affiliate sales you make for other people in the future.

All of those affiliate commissions are yours…

Just by way of example,  6 of the top 11 people on Jeff’s Joint Venture Partner’s Leaderboard in his most recent launch – people who have used the PLF process to launch their own products – are now using the big, responsive lists they built during those launches to participate in and dominate the top positions in JEFF’S launch.

How freaken cool is that?

Can you imagine doing this for yourself?

If you’d like to learn more about creating a kick-arse launch for your product or service that sells a bunch of stuff while building a big fat list of targeted prospects you can sell more stuff to later on, you can do that here.

Last Chance To Watch The Free Product Launch Formula Training Videos

Jeff’s gone and put all of his free product launch formula training videos on this page, so you might want to check them out if you missed them, or if you’d like to watch them again.

They’ll only be up for a couple of days until the launch ends at midnight on Saturday night.

Then we’re all starting with the new PLF training (I can’t wait, even though it will be the 6th time I’ve gone through the course, it gets better every time 🙂

If you have some time tonight or over the weekend, you can watch them here.

As you watch, look for the strategy behind the way the videos are created and the launch has been done, not just the content itself.

You can certainly model what Jeff has done during this launch for your own business and do quite well.

Something you don’t see though is everything that goes on under the hood.

10 Ways To Grow Your Business Using Private Label Rights Content

If you check your computer hard drive, I bet you have some Private Label Rights (PLR) content hidden away, gathering virtual dust. If you do, then you’re not alone. Plenty of marketers buy loads of PLR content but they never use it.

Why?

For a simple reason: They’ve just never learned HOW to use it to grow their business. If that sounds familiar to you – or if you just want to fully leverage your PLR content to create in-demand products you can launch to your audience in a fraction of the time – then here are 10 ways to make the most out of PLR…

1. Stock your autoresponder with PLR content

If you have PLR content that details a step-by-step process or a series of related tips, then you can easily turn this content into a multi-part ecourse. If you have enough of this content, you can create an email series that runs completely on autopilot for three months, six months, a year or even more! Note: Just tweak the content to make sure it’s evergreen.

2. Use PLR content to create an attractive subscription bonus

You need to give your prospective subscribers a good reason to join your mailing list. One way to do that is by offering a free download in the form of a report or ebook. You can use your PLR content to quickly and easily create this free bonus!

3. Offer PLR content as a bonus to paid products

Some of your prospects are probably sitting on the fence trying to decide whether to purchase your product during your launch or not. Offering bonuses such as free reports, audios or videos is a good way to help them make the buying decision. And using PLR content is a fast and easy way to create these bonuses.

4. Create complete paid products with PLR content

You can set aside your best PLR content and use it to create paid products such as ebooks, home study courses, teleseminars and more.

Pro Tip: For best results, compile multiple sources of PLR to create your own unique, killer product, and then use a Product Launch to get it out into the market quickly and profitably.

5. Use PLR content to create a viral report

Do you have PLR content that seems particularly useful, engaging, entertaining or even controversial? Then use it to create a viral report that you distribute widely across your niche.

6. Turn text PLR content into a video

Don’t limit yourself to keeping your PLR content in its original text format. One way to expand its use is to turn text content into video content.

7. Compile PLR content to create a “vault” membership site

Do you have a lot of PLR content all in one niche? Then use it to create a vault-style membership site, that’s chock-full of niche articles, reports and ebooks. Other people will pay a good price to save time and energy searching for good content themselves if you can give them a reason to get everything from you.

8. Publish PLR content on your blog

If you don’t have any PLR articles, no worries – you can chop up PLR reports and ebooks to instantly create blog posts!

9. Create a fire sale

Here’s yet another way to turn gobs of related PLR content into piles of cash. Simply run a one-week fire sale where you sell the whole boatload of content for just pennies on the dollar.

10. Make a podcast out of PLR content

Instead of posting regular text articles on your blog or Facebook page, you can read your PLR content to create a podcast. Best of all, you can then submit these podcasts to podcast directories, which allows you to reach even further into your target market!

There you have it – 10 profitable ways to use PLR content to grow your business. Of course, the most profitable idea is to create a cool product based on your PLR content and launch it using a well planned Product Launch…

The #1 Shortcut To Creating Profitable Products

Everybody wants a shortcut. We want to lose weight faster. We want an easier way to improve our golf game.

The list is long and varied. Whatever ultimate end result we are striving for, we want to reduce the time and effort it takes to get there.

Creating products to sell or launch online is no exception. The less time and effort we spend in getting products ready to sell, the better. Using PLR (private label rights) content for some (or even all) of your product’s content is a great shortcut for accomplishing the end result, while minimising the time and energy we spend on getting the product to market.

The Profit-Pulling Power Of Private Label Rights

You hear it about it everywhere: PLR content. And while you may know that PLR stands for private label rights, you may not exactly know what that means.

Here’s the deal…

Private label rights content refers to text, audio or video content that you can modify to suit your needs. In most cases, this also includes putting your name as the author or creator.

You can then use the content in a variety of ways (as long as you stay within the PLR license terms), such as by distributing it as a means of driving traffic to your site, using it as a bonus to get people to buy your products or join your mailing list, or even creating paid products from it.

So what’s the big deal? Why not just create the content yourself or hire someone else to create it for you, and then use a well planned Product Launch to release to to the market quickly and profitably?

Here are five reasons why you should start using PLR to grow your business…

Reason #1: PLR content saves you time

So imagine you get an idea for an ebook. You spend a few days (if not weeks) researching and writing it. But if you use PLR content instead, you can tweak it to suit your needs in a matter of hours, meaning your product is ready to to be sold almost instantly.

This “speed of implementation” aspect is one of the most powerful benefits of using good PLR to create your products. The faster you get your new product to market, the sooner you can see if it’s a success or not, and the faster you can start generating sales.

And if it’s a flop, you haven’t spent a lot of time and money creating something that nobody wanted to buy. It’s a win no matter how you look at it…

Reason #2: PLR content saves you money

Maybe you are considering leaving your content creation to a good ghostwriter. In that case, starting with some good quality PLR content can save you thousands of dollars per year.

Even if you hire a ghostwriter to tweak the content, that’s a huge saving over having this same ghostwriter create your content from scratch.

Reason #3: PLR content is extremely flexible

The first thing you need to do is read the license terms that come with your PLR content, because the amount of flexibility you’ll have is only limited to these terms. In most cases, you’ll find that the terms of use for PLR content are extremely flexible, meaning you can do things such as:

  • Modifying the content by adding to or taking away from the original
  • Putting your name (or your pen name) on the product as the author
  • Giving it away to generate leads for your business
  • Using it as blog or website content to attract visitors from search engines
  • Adding it your autoresponder as followup content for your subscribers
  • Repackaging it, such as turning text content into audio or video
  • Creating paid products out of it
  • And much more…

There are a nearly endless number of ways to use PLR content to grow your business!

Reason #4: PLR content makes you look like an expert

If you’re not already an expert in your niche, then you’ll need to spend a considerable amount of time researching various topics in order to create content that establishes you as an expert.

Alternatively, you can choose to use well-researched and well-written PLR content. Bam, you’re an instant expert!

Reason #5: PLR is easy to obtain

In the old days, it was extremely difficult  to find quality PLR content, especially a good, steady stream of niche-related content. These days PLR providers offer extremely good quality content in most of the major niches.

And better yet, they tend to offer fresh content every month or even every week, meaning you’ll never run out of content.

And there you have it – five reasons why you should starting using PLR content to create your own products so you can continue to grow your business.
