    Hello everyone,
    I am planning on selling a self-help course (It will be PROFESSIONAL)!
    No BS, I am making this product to gain money and also help people. The thing is that I don't know for sure what to use to start making the squeeze page and distributing the product.
    I need your guys help for a few questions:

    1) Where can I get a nice template and graphics to make a convincing squeeze page. I see people write these HUGE sales letters which take like an hour to read. They get boring but they are convincing so you would wanna buy the product. So how can I create these testimonials since this is my first product.

    2) After someone buys the product, what is the process to actually email the product. What do people use to email or send the people the product by email? I don't want to just redirect to a member's page since it is easily hackable (I don't want people to just download for free, I wanna make money as well!)

    3) How do I go about getting affiliates for this product? No doubt I will post a thread in this forum so that the people of BHW, if interested, can start promoting this product but how do you get on the TOP PAGE of the self help with the highest gravity? Where do I go to get affiliates in the same niche of self-help/inspiration as me? Any specific forums, websites?

    Finally, what will be the APPROXIMATE cost of the project? I am not an artist so I won't be able to design graphics. Maybe I can go on fivver and do it but all these others things needed like sending the product to the customer and also getting them in my opt-in list with a site like Aweber.


    Thank you so much to whoever can help! Again, I am not creating this product to just gain money. It will be a product that will actually be life-changing for the customers and I will provide a full course E.g. Daily exercises, motivation, ebooks, video, etc.

    Not sure about the price just yet since I know how affiliates LOVE recurring income BUT at the same time, customers love a one-time $50 purchase.
    What would you guys recommend who have had experience in selling products?


    Once again,
    Thank you

    1. If you are looking for something free, try for nextgenplr easy sales page, which is actually not free, but it can be found shared around here and there, by a simple search on Google. It turns your pages in landing/pitch pages, plus squeeze pages and stuff. For testimonials, go to Fiverr. But, don't chose only the best of them, or popular ones, because in case someone who knows what's going in Fiverr, and then see that guy or chick on your site giving a 'real testimonial', well.. be sure to check in there, and you will find some good ones. I can tell you a girl, for those 5 bucks she can act naturally and even make the vid. at 2-3 minutes long, for the same 5 bucks, and not asking for more like the rest.

    2. Even if you use some paid service to protect your thank you page, your ebook will be shared, so prepare for that. The problem isn't that it can be downloaded from there by those who knows how, the problem is that your ebook can be the result of a group buy, and then shared all over. And even if some small percent will get it for free somehow, it's okay, they weren't going to buy it anyway. So your major sells will be targeted on all those newbies who even didn't heard of bhw, like casual lads. You will understand that once your fuss about your ebook is going low, and you got enough money to be contented of, you won't bother anymore if your product is shared, because you will be working on another project.

    3. lol, well that's the point of being a vendor on clickbank. you get affiliates from there, however this is a subject that needs much more attention, and it will be delivered to you by others in here..I wrote it too many times already :)

    -

    I missed some points you asked, but others will answer. One last advice, as a vendor: Set just, or at least 60% for commissions. Don't go for 40%, 50%...go for 60%. If you want it 65, 75%...ok...you know best. But don't go bellow 60%, because you will lose a lot of affiliates. Not all, but you will lose like a apart of the best.

    Right now I'm waiting for one of my ebooks to get approved on CB. Between 3-5 days I gotta get the answer if it was accepted, so my beers are prepared, waiting in the fridge, shaking their ass and singing "I love you babe~"
    Cheers!

    haha. Thanks man. Really appreciate the resources. From the start I was planning on 75% comission for affiliates since this is gonna be my first course so I gotta get my name out there. Second can be a more piece of cake since the second one will have a more established brand.

    Thanks so much!

    Appreciate it!

    Your welcome man. My first ebook was made out of 0$. Actually, the money invested, were made with 2-3 weeks before, from some other online sources, without investments as well. So I wrote the ebook, got myself time to analyze how to make a great landing page for which you can find a lot of great articles on Google about this, because those who wrote them, are eventually vendors, and also experienced. Then, published it, secured my site to be 1st for it's keyword, and not below the affiliates :) And then, oh well, I remember I had a very beautiful summer on the beach near lots of Russian girls who were speaking English, and I'm going off the topic. :)
    So, my point is that your budget can be as much as you want it to be. If you don't know something now, and thing that money will solve it, regarding your ebook creation, then think again, and you will see that you can also learn new stuff in the process)

    Good luck!

    Hi,

    I will help you... Im had launched a product a week ago...

    1. You can get a nice-looking design with (minisiteshark) 87$ the cheapest package. I recommend if you can afford pay more to get everything (From banners, to Wordpress ready sales letter).

    2. To protect the product (PDF), You can buy the WP-PDF Stamper plugin (for Wordpress), and config it to CB. By this way, the product (PDF) will be send to the buyer email, ONLY when the invoice number, name, and email was confirmed. It's on autopilot.

    With this plugin, you can make a watermark with the name, and email of the buyer....on PDF. If anyone share the PDF, will share his personal information.

    About the price... Check the CB market, and compare... There's a lot of information about right prices (77, 47, 147) that numbers convert better...

    If you wanna get a lot of affiliates, try to make a nice-looking affiliate page, with a lot of help for anyone who want to promote your product, put your email there if anyone want to contact you for help. Contact directly the webmasters in your niche, and try to convince him to promote your product, post the launch here, and anthers IM forums.

    Wish you good luck!

    Just a tip... if you're ebook is going to be shared anyways... why not put some RELATED affiliate links. Remember the old Rich Jerk ebook? It got shared a bazillion times over, but RJ had mad affiliate links in it... I bet he made almost as much money from them, as he did from the product itself!

    Thanks man. Appreciate the help.
    So this WP-PDF Stamper plugin will do everything for you? Meaning keep all the emails and do the functions aweber does, secure book, etc?

    Thanks again


    True I can do that since I know some good products that I would ACTUALLY recommend since they are helpful and I have bought em myself. It's amazing how popular CB is. The leading worldwide gurus in the niche actually promote on Clickbank. NO BS though, they do put helpful and life-changing courses. I wanna make courses like that so the customers who buy actually are satisfied with my product as well.



    P.S. Sorry admins and mods, I forgot to reply in one post. I accidentally took two. Sorry bout that.

    lol, that can be an idea. Just create some wannabe ebook, makeup a story, shit out affiliate links in it, let it spread on all major making money~ forums. Even if the mini ebook, was never published on CB or such. too much fuss though..
