    I have a few products that I created and sell online. Currently, I am running a promotion on them.

    Here is what I have done so far to get the word out:


    • Sent email blast to my newsletter subscribers
    • Paid a popular blog in my niche to post my article promoting the deal
    • Paid a popular facebook page to post an image with link to my deal
    • Posting hardcore on my own facebook page about the deal

    Well, that worked for about 2-3 days. I got a ton of orders. However, now the sales have stopped. Even though, the blog post is still on the homepage of the popular blog that let me pay them to feature it.

    I get over 600+ visitors per day to my blog. The first post on the homepage is about my deal and I have a sidebar Ad promoting it.

    I've private messaged a ton of facebook pages in my niche asking if we could work together to promote my deal, none replied. I also email quite a few blogs in my niche, none replied.

    I am at a loss now of how to continue promoting my special offer. It seems once people hear about it, they are excited and buy it. But now, no more eyes are on it.

    Do you have any ideas that will help it get more attention?

    Wow the replies to this thread are a joke so ill give some suggestions.

    Media Buys- Email some websites in your niche, or for that matter, in your target age group and create banner ads for your offer. Make sure to make the ads eye popping since the audience may not be as targeted. Its all about numbers, bargain with the sites. First try 2-3 and cut the ones that you aren't making profit on after the first month or two. This will give you a better picture of the type of sites that convert well.

    Videos- might be kinda desperate depending on what type of product you have but screw it. Make the videos creative. Something people actually want to watch and might show to a friend (again, i don't know your niche/product.) Pick 5 keywords related to your niche and optimize them for rankings. Preferably videos that show on the first page of google.

    This is just a rough overview of some things you haven't done yet. You can get detailed methods on how to use media buys and Youtube ranking better by searching on the forum. Good luck and remember it's all about persistence. If the offer is converting keep going even if its one customer at a time. Slow money is better than no money.

    Did you do PPC?
    Have you joined any affiliate network like Shareasale to promote your product?
    Have you contacted any CPA network?
    Have you considered setting up an independent affiliate program?

    You said "I got a ton of orders", but that's nothing to give a scale, in terms of $$$, nor in terms of actual quantity.

    Think of what's the margin you can pay to a network, perhaps increase the price to reach this margin, if it's reasonable, etc.

    Basically, if your product converts well, but doesn't get enough exposure - don't stop at "free" promotion methods.

    Do you have an Instagram? Instagram is a great way to visually get your product out there. I can get you featured on the popular page which will draw a a lot of attention to wahtever you are selling. If you are interested PM Me your contact info.

    Press Releases are pretty cheap these days in the BST. $20 will get you a couple hundred visitors each day for 4-7 days, longer really.
