Newsletter 10th March 2022: The worst promotional strategy ever 😱

by | Newsletters


If you want to sell products, then first of all you need to create them.

Then you need to put them up for sale.

Most vendors seem to get that part.

Then many (especially those selling on marketplaces like Amazon or Etsy) just hope that the products will sell.

But no matter how good you are at hoping, hope is not a great promotional strategy.

Ideally, before you create your purple dancing widget, you know which groups of people will want it, and you have a plan to reach those people.

Otherwise your purple dancing widget is going to get lost in the fray.

And no one will buy it.

And if your potential customers already have a whole pile of purple dancing widgets, you had better know how are you going to make yours seem new and exciting enough for them to want to own it.

Of course, the product and how good it is are important in business.

But products, even good products, don’t sell themselves.

So give yours a fighting chance and have a plan to tell people about it!

In fact, even before you create your product, work on how you’re going to promote it to get maximum sales without going overboard with effort and cost.

In other words, create a strategy for promoting each of your products.

Every single one you want to sell anyway.  💖

Stack of PLR

PLR Stack is a bundle of over 35 products with PLR rights and courses.

I bought this yesterday because it really was too good to pass up!

There are a couple of items in it that swung the deal so I’ll be happy if that’s all I use from it.

Your mileage may vary, but if you think you can make use of this, then it’s a brilliant way to get a lot of content and products for less than a dollar per product.

The product is now on a dime sale so the price is going up with every sale (but just by a few pennies.)

I didn’t know they were going to do that or I’d have told you about this sooner.

The bundle disappears altogether on the 17th.

See everything included here

If you get the bundle but you’re puzzled about what you can do with it all, there’s a whole step by step business model contained in the upsells.

The first upsell, gives you the means to create great graphics for your product sales pages, the second is a comprehensive course on turning your PLR into profit. If you have a  stash of the stuff, seriously consider it.

My bonus: Choose any one of my free reports for the main PLR STACK offer if you buy through my link. If you choose the first upsell, you can also get a $20 coupon for my site, and if you get the second you can get a $50 coupon. You can choose whether to have the coupons as a single $70 or to have two separate ones if you buy both. See the end of the newsletter for details on how to claim.

This may be part of a bigger drive to help later, but time is of the essence with these things, so I’m giving it to you now.

It’s totally free, no guilt trips here, but I’d like you to consider giving to a charity in aid of Ukraine if you have the means to do so (sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine. I hope they will bloom in peace very soon.)

If you are not able to donate, but would like to help, feel free to sell this product in PDF format to raise funds as this comes with a PLR commercial use license, or you can give it away as a token gesture, when you ask others to donate.

Usual PLR terms apply (included in the zip file).

Amanda's emergency cash package

If you stuck wondering which business model to follow or you just want a new step-by-step income stream without having to think too hard, take a look at Amanda’s Emergency Cash Kit, designed to help you out when you just need to get it done and get earning.

I’ve often been critical of ‘push button solutions’ because they don’t work.

What does work are tried and tested, ethical methods like this one…

But all the heavy lifting has been done for you.

Just follow the step by step instructions and follow the templates provided.

At less than $20 (it was just $17 when I bought it earlier today), it’s a total steal but it’s one of those pesky sales where the price jumps a few cents with each sale made so don’t hang around too long to take a look.
