    Well this is my first post so hello everyone. Im currently working on two products in the health/fitness niche. One is an app, and the other is a physical product. The physical product is going to require molds that are going to cost thousands of dollars of which I dont have, and im going to be running a crowdfunding campaign to get the funding i need.

    The mobile app is going to hopefully be very cheap because my friend is going to be developing it. The app provides good value I believe, and im going to be giving it away for free.

    Now heres the problem. I wont see a dime until I drive traffic to the app, and i wont see a dime from the product unless I drive enough converting traffic to be able to produce the product.

    So my big problem is traffic. Im building up accounts on instagram currently, and im about to get a bot to automate the process. I also have accounts on fitness forums that I have built up an ok reputation over the years. I have very little cash left so im trying to get these going with as little cash as possible. My conversions for my site so far are a little more than 1% and i believe i can get them to around 3-6% even then im still going to need visitors by the hundreds of thousands. So what course of action would you take if you were in this situation? Im also planning on cross promoting the product through the app, and the app through the website, so the app is basically my lead magnet. Advice on what you would do would be much appreciated.

    What this guy said, if you buy BHW membership you can use the sig space to advertise your business.

    Thanks for the offer, I need to get my post count up before i can pm though. This certainly sounds interesting. I also need to get the app developed before i can promote it. Very impressive numbers too btw.

    Just create the brand first - after you can push it slow on well known communities. Ask people who are using it to leave reviews, etc. And you will get traffic. This is a win-win situation. Traffic comes in time if you will do it natural and wise. ;)

    Put your two products on clickbank and have people sell your products for you.

    It probably wouldnt be a good idea to put them into an affiliate program just yet considering the product isnt ready yet, and some of the conversions may fizzle out knowing they cant buy it right away. The app could work but im giving it away for free.

    Are there better ways to build traffic rather than building a brand, and doing it at a snails pace? There has to be quicker more efficient ways.
