    Hey all,
    This is Khalid from Passive Journal :( You know, I launched my service two days ago and we didn't get sales as we expected here at BHW which is sad :(

    I can probably say it with confidence that me and my designer team is the best when it comes to Infographic, but it seems like nobody is interested to buy :( I didn't lose all my motivation but yes, it is a bt sad as we were ready to roll.

    Motivate me guys with your tips and strategies :)

    Thanks
    Khalid

    Why don't you have a link/banner to your service in your signature?


    Also maybe dish out a few free review copies to members and post samples in the thread.

    You can't be an established brand in 2 days mate! Plus you will need tons of positive feedback from a lot of customer to build trust.

    You need Patience.
    I saw you jump right in and become a marketplace seller right after you register here.

    Create a website/portfolio with your graphic design work and publish.
    Give review copies to reputed members here and ask them to post review on your BST

    Good luck

    Give out review copies to people (and no I'm not interested specifically in your service), but this is what other people do.
    + what the hell is wrong with your home page, it can be only me, but this yellow color made me cry.

    In addition to free review copies I've seen people offer extra services to clients who post a review.
    Also discounts are a big thing. Nobody wants to pay full price so if you can give some kind of a coupon code that certainly helps.

    All the advice above plus remember it is the holiday season and people may be distracted or not have their usual disposable/investable income. Give it until a couple weeks into the New Year before you get too down on yourself but keep working at it in the meantime.

    I'd happily take a review copy ;)

    Also, you have to think to yourself: why would people buy from us?

    This provider here does the same thing as you for a little over half the price. You need something to justify the price

    Give out some review copies to a few Jr vip's and moderators as well as market your thread in your sig. Will definately help!

    But yes, to mention as everyone else have said, give out review copies! and you mentioned it's been only two days!

    On that note, if you are willing to do review copies, I'll be happy to do one for you.

    Oho. So much this.

    You have 27 posts here. No one knows who you are. You haven't helped anyone or contributed anything to the forum. This is the first time I've seen or heard from you.

    A trusted name around here goes a long way. If all you're interested in is making money off of this forum then people will pick up on that quickly and get turned off.

    This isn't WaFo. You can't just pay a fee and expect to make it big overnight with your product. You need to get to know BHW first and then put up a product that is going to cater to them.

    Also, wtf dude? You've only been open for two days. Seriously?

    Your expectations are unrealistic. Dial them back and mingle on the forum instead of just sitting there expecting people to throw money at you bc you're a seller here.

    2 days is a long time, I understand OP. May be try to advertise on BHW and buy few signatures for advertisement? or try to launch a new service for logo plus other design related work ?

    BTW you don't keep this pet at the entrance of your company do you?

    @alwaysinvisible
    I agree with that. But I would say OP did that on purpose not that he has high expectations rather he wants to use sympathy to get sales. We can see that from over use of sad emojis all over the thread.
    He wanted to use sympathy to get some attention and he somehow made it . Infact some people might have even bought his services by now :p

    @OP Although I totally get your intentions ( which is not to get suggestions but sales :p) .
    I still appreciate your efforts and the spirit that you wanna take the next step asap.
    Mate you actually got noticed ;) .
    Good luck ! Hope you get the sales soon.

    One of the service thread i started is also dead(lost around $1100 offering free review copies and banner design etc) while other has over 1100 posts and is getting sales from past 3 years. Key is to not put all eggs in 1 basket, be persistent and sometimes you gotta be jack of all trades to succeed in online business.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    Other members have given you several fantastic ideas to help get a bit of traction. I was very impressed with the work you did for the review, I think a few more reviews will sort things out. When a new seller joins no one really knows them and they are unsure about giving them money as they have no reputation. That will change if you give out 6 review copies for example.

    The other think you could do is advertise, fill out this form if you are interested in this:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/pages/advertise/

    @Asif WILSON Khans suggestion of adding a signature banner is also a very simple thing that could help. If you do that and then join in discussions (not posting spam...) you will be surprised how much exposure you can get.

    I hope things pick up for you soon.

    Hey OP,

    Some of the things I know that you need to focus on.

    Your service that you provide clear and needy one to the members. So express words exactly what your service do.
    You need to give the review or extremely discount copies to the BHW members who are looking for your service.
    As @Asif WILSON Khan said, place your sales thread link behind the signature.
    Get more reviews from the buyers who buy the thing you sell.

    You can succeed in the future, hope well and do as per BHW rules.
    Best of luck buddy. ;)
