Default WOW! A GREAT-NEW WAY to sell PLR Videos!

Excuse me BUT.....I just got off the phone from an "ol'" buddy who bought a bunch of PLR (Private Label Rights) web commercials who was having a hard time trying to sell them so.... he asked me if I had any suggestions.

Well.....he lives in a small town and he really likes Web Videos. He's been trying to Rank Videos for certain KeyWords like....Town + HVAC and Plumber in "Town"...etc.

So....I KNOW that trying to Rank Video for keywords can...and usually does, take some KnowHow and Time.....2 things my buddy doesn't have much of...yet.

He set up a website to display the videos to prospects.

So.....I gave him TWO suggestions:

1) go to your FaceBook Home Page and type in, at the top box...."HVAC in Town".....(up comes a bunch of HVAC biz)
and.....
2) Pick some you think are prospects (NO franchises or Big operationgs) and click on the word "Messages" and send the following message......(sorry, I can't divulge everything)

And....because I KNOW....from experience that....even busy Doctors, Dentists, Chiropractors.....Owners of biznesses ....PAY ATTENTION TO THEIR FACEBOOK MESSAGES!

So......this technique caused some people who could PAY him.....to go to his website.....watch the videos and.....BUY!!!!

So.....whatever you are trying to sell....remember that Biz Owners and Doctors, Dentists, Professionals and Biz Owners.....PAY ATTENTION to their FaceBook MESSAGES! USE IT!

Thanks Don,

Great tip!

It does seem like a great way to get a bunch of businesses who are contactable, and in your area too...

I've never really used Facebook as a "research" and "contact" tool before... But, I just did a few "test searches"... and turned up some very relevant information for one of my side projects. I can see how it could be very useful!

Best wishes,

Dien

Great idea Don, when you mentioned it earlier for other services,
I thought about doing it. In fact I did contact a few, but I went
slowly since I do not want my facebook account banned. But it is
certainly worth looking into.

Would it be banned? Is it "spam"?

I found a web page which says that "spam" is when a message is both unsolicited and sent in bulk...

I think Don's talking about sending individual messages (i.e. not in bulk)... I envisioned he wasn't talking about sending too many messages (after all, you're only wanting to contact local businesses of a certain type)...

Anyway, that's how it looks to me, as a non-expert... I tried to find examples of any mention of Facebook banning people for doing what Don is talking about, and I couldn't find any through a few quick searches (but feel free to correct me)...

Best wishes,

Dien

Default Re: Spam or Not? Who cares

Hi Dien,

I learned the hard way years ago with my ebay account that it doesn't always matter how I interpret the gray areas. I was technically working within the boundaries but I had no power or say in the matter. I was entirely at their mercy and discretion... and honestly not worth their time or attention. I never got that account back.

I would think facebook would be similar situation. If enough people decide to report it as spam and your account gets flagged then you are a small fish and nuisance to a support person at facebook who may not care to hear your interpretation.

I'm not saying that I wouldn't do it... but I would be cautious with my own account and if it looks like a good direction to go then I would personally create another account for this purpose that I wouldn't mind losing.

Thanks,
Rob Yaggie

Dien, I think it is a legitimate method and will work. I am just being ultra cautious.
Maybe, too cautious. I think maybe 10 to 20 contacts in a day
might be fine.
Ron made the point that I was thinking, you don't want any complaints,
after all you only have one facebook account.

Default Re: WOW! A GREAT-NEW WAY to sell PLR Videos!

I have 2 FB accounts and.....because in order to send Messages one must click on the word "Message"......one-at-a-time (No Bulk sending as with Email) I do not think anyone would be "bothered" enough to complain.

Plus.....I prefer to "personalize MY messages to the NAME of the person ("Hello Dr Johnson" rather than "Attn: Person in charge of Marketing")

However......with my PLR Videos I've found that using; "I've created a Video for You!"......gets them to Open the message where I further explain that "I've Created a Video Web Commercial for YOUR business!" This further Personalizes the Message so it's NOT considered "Spammy".

Yes Don, good idea. I have found with emails also if you make them personal
and INTERESTING not formal and uptight that people WILL open them and respond.
I am thinking linkedin might work too but I have not done anything with my linkedin
account.
