Methods to Increase Profits When Doing a Product Launch

Many IMers create awesome products, but many fail to actually make full profits from it. Why? Simple, they just do not know how to do the right marketing and sales process for their products. To get maximum profits from your product sales, you must understand and implement the correct mechanics of a effective product launch process

How?

The first step to take is to plan on how to market your product. There are numerous ways to do that; start by listing out all the important details and deadlines for your product. This way you would not find yourself delaying the product launch, thus making it bomb.

Second goal is to market the product the right way. You just cannot launch a product and expect your website to do the selling for you. You must find other means to promote your product. Among the few I can name is, Facebook and Twitter. These social media sites provide excellent exposure as you can promote your product to all your contacts. Also, besides exposure you also get free authority and publicity. The next is to find a few Internet marketing forums and you can promote your products there.

The third goal is to gradually build your list size. This can take time, but it is worth it. There are many ways to build your list; among it is to swap ads with other IMers. Also, PPC (Pay Per Click), and Giveaways. It is recommended that you initiate your list building at least 4 weeks prior to your product launch date,. That way you will have a higher chance of increasing your list size and better selling conversions

The last action to take is to go the affiliate route. Using affiliates, you are exposing your products to significantly larger potential customers. Use ClickBank to garner their wide spread affiliate network

After you set up everything, and after you launch your product, if everything goes as planned, you should see success. Good Luck.

Keys to Launching a Successful Viral Video – Part 1

A viral video that takes your niche (and maybe the whole Internet) by a storm doesn’t just happen by accident. To maximize your chances of creating the video that becomes an overnight sensation, you need to execute this two-part plan:

-Part 1: Create a buzz-worthy video
-Part 2: Launch your video

Here’s how to do it…

Step 1: Choose a Topic Worth Sharing

Go to YouTube and see what’s hot. Which videos are popular and get a lot of views, comments and viral action? Chances are, the popular videos tend to be funny, outrageous, controversial, offensive, extremely useful or similar.

Look, if you want to create a video that everyone talks about, then you need to make it WORTH talking about. And that means making it different, engaging, useful, funny, controversial and/or offensive.

Step 2: Create Your Video

You don’t have to buy fancy equipment, but you shouldn’t a camera that films grainy pictures either. Upgrade your equipment to the best you can afford so you can present a quality product.

Second, keep it SHORT – just 30 seconds to two minutes maximum. Videos go viral when they’re short and easy to watch… and easy to pass along.

Step 3: Keep Track of the Important Frames

Your first, last or middle frame should be visually appealing. That’s because YouTube allows you to use one of those frames as a thumbnail pic – and you want to create a thumbnail pic that captures attention (and clicks) from YouTube users.

Step 4: Load and Tag

Finally, you need to load your video up, describe it, and “tag” it using the keywords your niche uses to find related information. Ideally, you should use some long-tail keywords so that your niche can easily find your video both on YouTube as well as in Google.

Once you’ve completed the above four easy steps, you’re halfway done. Your next step is to officially launch your video and get it in front of as many people as possible. You’ll discover exactly how to do that in Part 2 of this article series.
