You might have gathered from the amount of posting I’ve been doing here and elsewhere that I’ve put a fair amount of effort into promoting what looks like (on the surface) to be a very small priced item. Alex Jeffreys’ The Money Trigger – a $5 product with a one time offer ($17) and a recurring 2nd offer ($27), doesn’t look like it will be a huge earner but it all depends on who can capture the leads.
I decided to try an experiment – I hadn’t seen it done anywhere else before so I didn’t know how it would go.
As the system stands, if I send a lead to Alex’s sales page and they buy then he gets a ‘known buyer’ lead and I get $5 (100% commission on this item). If they just leave then no one gets anything. So I decided to send them via this squeeze page BEFORE I sent them on to the sales page. That way I’d get a subscriber to my currently scrawny list and then maybe there’d be a sale afterwards. Win-win for me and Alex you’d think. The squeeze page promises nothing that Alex’s sales page doesn’t deliver and there’s no freebie from it (at least not until email 4 from my autoresponder).
This I think was my big mistake.
Because there was no reason to sign up, out of the 2100 clicks that went there, only 12 did and 10 of them were from Lagos, so I don’t expect they’ll be buyers and one of the other sign ups was me testing that it worked. So not a great result.
I’ve learned a few things though (18 hours after my initial launch):
My actual stats from JVZoo weren’t too bad. 51 clicks on the JVZoo link directly resulting in 6 visitors and 3 sales of The Money Trigger and one upsell to MarketingWithAlex Live, so purely on those stats it looks good for Alex’s funnel, but my side definitely needs more work! Picture below:
I have one last chance which is a 125 click solo ad from Safe-Swaps which is due to go on Saturday. Probably should have booked that in advance to catch some launch interest.
We live and learn.
Please comment below – especially where you think I could have done things differently or better, bearing in mind I’m still at the low budget end of spending money although time is something I can spend.
