    i have a friend who is a musician, he is basically a guru in his niche has has tons of followers his youtube videos have over 2 million views on just about all of them, if you put his name in the google keyword tool he has 19,000 searches per month, he doesnt believe in the whole internet marketing thing he thinks its all scams and such and such, i told him we could put out a product and make a million dollars easy, weather its a product launch for $500 and get 2000 customers or just a simple clickbank product for $197 or $97 to get started or a membership site for $19 a month with a 1000 people thats 20k per month easy, he thinks im full of shit, i basically want to create a product and promote it with his name via google adwords and seo anybody have any ideas on how i can approach this since he doesnt want any parts, once i get results then i can show him some numbers and make some big money later...

    I would be VERY interested in being involved in this. I am a product creation expert and I know exactly how to go about this :)

    Wait... do you already make money online? If you do, then just show him
    your current results.

    But if you're not currently producing any results, then how can you expect
    to convince a complete outsider? I have tons of friends who think that IM
    is all scams and fraud.

    Why don't you just setup a squeeze page for some relevant music PLR. Then
    setup a backend with a CB product. Pay your friend to talk about your website.

    If he has as much influence as you say, then people will go to your site to get
    your freebie. Some MIGHT buy your backend offer and then you can leverage those
    results to convince your friend to investing his time into creating a product.

    Just my opinion though...

    Just study the "Jamorama" site. This is a young man who is a decent guitarist and gives away lots of free lessons on Youtube and on his site. Through relationship marketing, list building, and the law of reciprocity he has managed to make himself a few million dollars. And he keeps coming out with more instructional DVD's. So it has the continuity factor.

    I suggest that if you are really serious about pursuing this angle, you should invest in this guy's course and study/model everything he is doing and just do it a bit better or add a new twist to it.

    Best of luck! :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    I come from a land down under..
    Musician = sell CDs, merch, itunes etc.
    You can do special edition releases, release it on vinyl.
    Release a special edition with extra goodies, limited to 1000, signed by the musician and sell them for $xxx or you can sell the special edition for a little less and only the first 1000 are signed.
    Vinyl sales are the only media that has increased in sales since p2p/torrents.
    Leak his album and upload it to hotfile ^_^ aha
    Ok not the last one unless he gets on your nerves.

    Goodluck dude!

    I used to promote this through CB, he's pretty well off from Jamorama and other branches of the software/videos.
    Good suggestion.
