Are any of you reminded of the scene from the movie FOOTLOOSE where the kids have fought the good fight, gotten permission to have the Senior Prom dance they wanted yet when the time comes we see them all there, standing on the sidelines? Wallflowers, every one of them.
The music is playing, but nobody's dancing.
Let me step onto the dance floor and show you my moves. Maybe a few of you will join me.
Over the past few years, I've toyed with the idea of starting a hotsheets/hot profits business. Bought a short, snappy, highly brandable domain name from which to sell my stuff. Made a logo of sorts. Got an idea for how to "run things." Yesterday, I hired a writer to do a series of products for me.
Each product will focus on a single, specific idea or problem and will provide a solution. Those should be ready soon. When they are, it's time to introduce products to a swarm of potential buyers.
Here's my plan:
Introduce the site and the first product via a special offer over on that "other forum" from whence I came. The price will be low, so getting the product works like an impulse buy. This helps me build a buyers list.
When the second product is released, I will make the first one available for affiliates to sell -- at 100% commission.
Buyers of the first product will get a notice when the second product is released. They get first dibs. Then a special offer will be run for the second product. Then affiliates get to sell...blah, blah, blah.
The cycle will continue with subsequent products with most of the profits going into the creation of additional products.
Sounds boring when you type it out, but I hear it works nicely.
Anyone have thoughts about this? Advice to offer? Comments, or even snarks about how it's too simple (or much more complicated) and will never work?
... let's dance.
