    I decided to promote a new product - software. Price tga between $150 and $500. I started 2 weeks before the actual launch.
    Bought a ProductName+Review.com domain. Wrote about 1000 words myself and bought about 1500 words from a good supplier. Created the WP site and used InstaBuilder to build the main LP.

    Main LP was actually grabbing the emails of all interested people. I WAS NOT sending my traffic to the landing page. I was offering them a SUPER EXCLUSIVE Bonus for signing up my list. So far I got 102 subscribers and still getting 1-2 a day. I also had an auto responder series in place...reconfirming my intention to deliver this amazing bonus...and reminding them NOT TO BUY the product until I SAY SO.

    Also had an YT video that was driving traffic to my LP.

    Promotion
    1. Basic SEO on site.
    2. Backlinks to YT video: bookmarks and wikis,
    3. Backlinks to main site: High PR bookmarks + a few high PR backlinks.
    4. YT PPC - total spent about $25. Got about 500+ views.
    5. FB PPC - spent about $20.
    6. 1 post on a related forum (I think I got about 20 subs only from that). They came immediately as my thread hit Google 1[SUP]st[/SUP] page - 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] spot.
    7. Bribing my list - told them to post my link to FB and twitter for extra gifts.

    So they day of launch in emails first time with my aff links. Unfortunately they product website got DDOS'ed and it was down most of the time. I had 3 people from my list emailing me asking for the bonus as they purchased. Of course I wasn't credited for their purchase so I had to get out of that situation.

    But a few days later sales starter pouring in. Only 10% of my list had purchased. I am emailing them everyday and also sending special branded PDFs with "secret" info related to the product.

    Expenses - abut $65
    Profits to date: $1100 or something like that.

    See the screenshot below!

    So that's about all folks.
    MY little twist was not to send the traffic to official website's optin form but instead collect the leads myself. This would also be called Twisted Launch Jacking!

    PS. My site is still getting attacked by competitors..plus apparently i am getting spam backlinks sent to my main site...85% of them are the keyword...

    PPS. I will answer your questions ...but i wont tell you the product name. Will be back in 2 hours.

    PPPS. Looks like this is my 600th post...what a cliche....LOL

    Thx!

    That's the plan. Except i chose only launches where front end makes me more than $30-50/sale

    jvnotifypro.com
    muncheye.com
    and
    warriorjv.com

    Other times i get invited by email.

    I've always wanted to test this out... however the issue with IM niche is, that you need shittons of bonuses. Did you use just some freely shared ones or you have some of your own?

    That is the MOST important part of any promotion. You can see a ton of people offering $5000 bonuses for a $17 product...that is insulting ANYONE's intelligence...buyers, sellers. People are so used to see this BS....they dont even pay attention to the BS value of those bonuses.

    What i did was different. I promised them an EXCLUSIVE bonus - i am sure 1000% that noone has it...as it was basically implemented by me. There are 2 things i wont disclose about this promotion: Product Name and What i offered as bonus.

    BUt i can suggest you to spend a few days finding the perfect bonus.

    As i told one friend of mine...it has to be like in the Godfather - make them an offer they CANT refuse!

    I took a video from affiliate page and made a video within another video....and on the sides i had Calls to action and domain name for branding. In video manager, i clicked the drop down menu and there is an option to PROMOTE. That's how i did it. So it was a video add.

    Did not even know there is such a product being made...i got an email invitation and decided it is a perfect time to try out good ol' IM basics: Research-Act-Earn

    About the bonus...I had to literally Come up with it myself...you know the old: if there is no market/need - create one!

    Well, coming up with the bonus is definitely the hardest part of this, but congratulations to an awesome launch jack. :)
    I will offer them... my sister if they ever come to central Europe.

    Good stuff mate. Actions speaks louder than words, plus you have the stats to back it up, another reason why I love these kind of threads.

    So you didn't create your own product but rather were promoting some else's as an affiliate. Very misleading title.

    No misleading considering that this type of technique are called "Product Launch Jacking"

    @mkstromin I have a few questions that hopefully you will be able to answer.

    1. In your squeeze page do you talk about the product or just let them know that you are giving them X bonus for signing up on your list?

    2. Which marketplace are you using? I haven't see that earning interface before. Thanks in advance.
