    So I'm moving out in exactly 17 day's. I've got most of the money I need stashed away, but I recently found out due to a lack of credit history (I do have one.. just not a long one, im only 19!) I'll be paying first/second/and last month rent as a deposit. That leaves me about $1k short in the end of it all, and I've done what anyone would do in my situation! (well any of you guys)

    I've pieced together a new product, and I've found an INSANE fucking niche. I'm actually in utter shock, it should be completely dominated-and its almost untapped on google.

    But I've always relied on affiliate commissions as the biggest part of my income, I dont have time to wait on those checks! So heres my battle plan-I want to know if anyone sees any flaws in my system


    #1:Find the niche (done) and produce the product (done)
    #2:Write the salescopy (I'm still taking notes to get this thing perfect..)
    #3:Keyword research:Again, done, this is the "hot" niche I spoke of. I've found a keyword with only 200k results-mostly blog posts. The hilarious thing is most people searching for it are looking to BUY a product just like mine.
    #4:pump out fake reviews, and do some article marketing.
    #5:pimping the affiliate program for this product. Im building templates,banners, and so forth already. I'll be using paydotcom.com to handle the affiliate system.
    #6:Ebook/Viral marketing (Rewriting a dozen or so ebooks and promoting my product in them. Then I'll be uploading them to torrents/warez sites/etc.)
    #7:Forum marketing. I wont be doing this here, but I'll be all over digitalpoint with about 5 fake s/ns and some proxys. This parts going to be time consuming as fuck, so if anyone wants to help here I'll pay you! I need some total bullshit testimonials. Also, you could promote my product in your sig. I'd pay for that as well, and youd get affiliate commissions.
    #8:Social network marketing-This is sort of article marketing, but I know how to get some crazy traffic this way.
    #9:Im building a list of 100+ blogs in my specific niche,I'll be pinging them all with PRstorm-And commenting them all occasionally for backlinks.
    #10:pRstorm.. and a custom list of urls. (One time thing I know the dangers here)
    #11:Any other tips guys? I really need this launch to go well.

    Promote the hell out of it on a OPT in list.

    If your list is small, so smack a few videos up on youtube and get OPT ins, highly targeted, offer free stuff. But just a taste of what your product does.

    setup aweber or something and have 5-6 messages loaded in for the last few days before launch, make a special Pre-Launch week party, giving away anything to people visiting your site before launch.


    And make sure that you do a 1 Time offer, no better way to double your sales.


    I am readying myself for my first big product launch these are a few tips I have come across.


    I can feature your product on my webpage, especially if your doing paydotcom, I just joined a few weeks ago. for some reason I rank higher than most sites I publish now a days when I backlink from my blog. Google must think I'm special or something, could be the 7 years my domain has been online, and the less than 3 months all the domains have been around.

    Cash,

    I don't have too many ideas for you, but I would be more than happy to help and promote the product in my sig on all forums. No need to pay, i'd just be glad to help out.

    Maaan, I'm sure you'll make much more than $1k with that much work. Seriously, you could make easily $1k by promoting one or two ebooks at DP (you know, the same "make money guide" type of stuff that everybody sells at DP).

    If you need testimonials on DP just let me know. I was planning on setting up a few sigs with various proxies anyway. Personally I tend to stay away from DP. Also I've been so freakin busy with my day gig, that I haven't had a chance to even post here consistently.

    But for you Cash, I'll put in the work and get you traction on at least 2 accounts.
    Just PM me with the details. I'll start posting on DP tonight and tomorrow.
    I wonder how many "me too" and "thanks" posts I can knock out in a couple of hours. LOL

    The Jeff J0hns0n stuff has some great info. I just wish I had sometime to really dig into it with my own product.

    Allright guys-All you guys who offered to pump out reviews for free-
    Expect a pm tomorrow. I'm developing a course alot like "Cpa domination" but without the hefty pricetag. I was just going to rebrand an older product, but I feel like this is an excellent opportunity to spread my company name as well-Which means I've got a shitload of new material to create. But this give's me time to pimp the prelaunch, I'll be sending those of you who offered free reviews etc. A "demo" probably tomorrow night. (1 method, guaranteed to pump out at least a few $1000 a month) I'll be drafting an NSA for all customers though, and I'll have to fax/scan and email you all a copy. I'm pretty much creating a encylopedia of everything I've learned.

    I did something similar. I went as far as creating an outline of all the chapters (for three different extremely large products/ebooks), a logo, and almost died when I started writing because of the monumental task that it would be for me to complete it. I'm thinking about having chunks ghost written and keeping the project alive. I'm not much for writing big ebooks.

    Sounds like you got your sh*t together..
    If I were you, I'd ping with blogblaster . .. it sounds like its only for blogs, but its for any url. I've got all my urls, affiliate urls, cloaked urls, etc loaded in and run that sucka every day.. Used to use 'All day sucker' but it kept crashing at odd times to I gave up until someone comes with a better one.
    Oh, and really pimp that social marketing and bum marketing.. I get crazy amounts of traffic>sales from bum & social marketing.
    I gave up on prstorm as I got google slapped on one of my urls, and it had to be prstorm as it was the only blackhat technique I was using.. damnit.

    Anyhow, if I can help further, shoot me a pm , if not good luck.

    Eh its a saturated niche-but I've found some highpowered keyword niches.
    Lets see... something like 400k searches a month, and .... 4000 competing sites-None of the first page is selling anything btw, there all blog posts and such really unrelated to the keyword.


    Anyways-The prelaunch page is almost done. I have to upload some videos of my earnings, and I have to set up a optin for a mailing list-then I'll be sending out a legion of affiliates to start promoting the prelaunch.

    Go ahead and grab a look guys, I havent dropped the keywords I plan on ranking with just yet.. that will be the final step.

    Ps:I know I have the words stream and source fucked up. I got a little distracted while I was designing the page. I'll be fixing the banner and background in an hour or so.

    thanks guys =]
    To be honest, I poured about 30 hours into keyword research and writing a salesletter-I sat down to type up the prelaunch, and thats sort of just how it all came out.

    But I still need those keywords of course ;)
