    Hi there,

    today I want to introduce you my Missspelled Gorilla Method, which is not only about SEO results, but also for Sales/Lead generation ( spelling mistakes in this thread are not corresponding to the title of the method, but are corresponding to type this by iPad while sitting on the toilet).

    I will explain this method on a live example, which has generated my company (e-commerce, beauty niche) about hundred sales of a product with a value of 145€. I made this on 3 different plattforms, and each time it has been 30-40 sales.

    Caution: It is time-sensitive and you are better not to outsource the main steps (guerilla parts). If you keep your attitude real, you can use this again and again ( but not only and not to permanent ), but you have to be good not to get caught. If you are good and keep it natural, this will be a permanent money machine where youan suck many sales in long term. After setup you should use the made accounts at least every few days and post a bit, this way you can drive sales everytime you need a push in your biz - and that without giving discounts.

    Timeframe: Initial setup 2hours. Daily work about 20 minutes.

    1. Target product page.
    I promoted an eyelash serum for growing longer eyelashes. Its name has a number in it and the name is very unique, but much competition on the market as it shall be the only one that works really. Lets call it lashes4ever in this thread. In the product description I changed the number in the product name one time to lashes8ever and ensured that the serps dont have the autocorrection for this keyword. It looks like a clumsy mistake in the product description, but you have to live with that.

    2. I purchased a small backlink package from here, with the missspelled productname as anchor and let the provider do his work.

    While the work was in the doing and the serps started to catch my site for this literally no-competition keyword, i used the time for the following:

    3. I researched the target group for this particular product. My girlfriend is half korean and from her I knew that most asian girls are suffering from short eyelashes. I researched 3 forums with big audiences of asian beauty-affin girls that are active, in the mid-thirties and the most members are from this continent (because shipping costs would lower the conversions), in some niches the site bigboards can help with that. this part took the most time. some forums offer media-information for media buys, on any big forum you can request them by email, so you know if it is the right one. mid twenties to thirties are known to throw the most money out of the window for products like this.

    4. I registered on each of this forums 2 accounts, put in all the profile data, resisted the wish of dropping a backlink in the signature and posted there. I started with introductions, the I got involved in the What- did-you-have-for-breakfast - like threads, later i asked some beauty-related questions (simply took the questions I heard from girlfriend, she was asking herself like "how to use the hair steamer without getting the hair to dry out totally" and gave some hints ( if you live with a woman and are an attentive partner you can always find threads to participate ).
    to keep control of the accounts I posted from one account on the forums only by PC and the other account by smartphone.
    Each girl that participates with me on the forums got a friend request from me (all forums have been vB) and i tried to simulate the Woooo-girl-everything-so-fancy-here-attitude. the most crucial point is that you have a feeling for the ductucs on board and to speak and behave like them. this can be iffy and upset or ultrafriendly and cuddly, read threads to get a feeling for the niche. sometimes they use own word creations for certain things, try to adopt that. If you want to make it peferct, register an fb and link to it in your sig with words like "meet me on facebook!!!!"

    5. The Part Where The Sales Flow In.

    The first account opens up a thread like "i hate my micro - eyelashes - please recommend me something that really works!"
    in the thread you show a picture of an asian with short eyelashes that "is you" (risky and optional- do only with unique pictures) and complain that each and every product you tried just did not work and think that faked eyelashes are hooker-like. ask if anyone experienced one single product that really has helped. for the last step it can be good to mention long tails (examples step 6) in the thread, but only if you are experienced in weaving it in naturally, if not skip it.

    you will get different answers, and you interact with the users, try to get many user subscribed to your thread, but go to a) or b) before the first site of the thread is full and the pagination comes in.
    the most of them are to lazy to make longer reviews, but they will recommend some stuff or say there is nothing that helps. Now it can work out in three directions:

    a) Noone mentions the product you are targeting.
    jump in with your second account from your smartphone, and write a longer review about lashes8ever, the missspelled keyword you used 1. and 2. Write about outstanding results, that you got a second row of lashes and you cant see through them anymore because they are so thick now (jk dont do this!).

    Dont link to your shop, let them search the missspelled keyword and find you on their own. With Guerilla Marketing you can kill your business and cause a shitstorm.

    b) someone mentions the product you targeted.
    Just make it like everyone else in forums, do like you wouldnt have noticed that there are search engines like google and write something like "are you sure it is called lashes4ever??? I am pretty sure you mean lashes8ever, if yes I can confirm what you wrote, it really works pretty good."

    Dont link to your shop, let them search the missspelled keyword and find you on their own. With Guerilla Marketing you can kill your business and cause a shitstorm.

    c) someone mentions the product with a link to a competitor.

    Mention that you made very bad experiences with that shop and you cant recommend to deal with them. Now you use [yourshopname], while they are not the cheapest, they give you more samples with every order and the shipping is much faster. it is better to name a bad side of your shop also.

    Dont link to your shop, let them search your shopname and find you on their own. With Guerilla Marketing you can kill your business and cause a shitstorm.

    the second account should have an image of an asian with long eyelashes on the fb account whichis linked in the sig (not the forum avatar, to obvious)

    6. buy an good, really good backlink package and point it to the thread with the longtail keyword like in this case eyelash serum or longer eyelashes or how to get longer eyelashes or or or...

    I know this sounds pretty much all at all, but you will generate tons of sales and (if in e-commerce) new customers.
    There is no recipe for every case, but I know you can use your brain to adopt it to your case.

    so long

    subster

    P.s: I made my gf this serum as present, but she says it does not work. However she would not consider forums when it comes to search for an alternative.
    P.p.s: I really have to get ot this toilet now...

    I wouldn't have thought of step 6, so I'll add that up when it comes it product promoting. Thanks for the great method, I'll be sure to try this out soon.

    Oh and I'm looking forward to your eCommerce SEO forum, notify me when it's open to the public.

    Thank you OP for the thread , I did this before with a little twist to it .
    For step 6 and in My experience , if lashes8ever doesn t exist naturally , it will show up in the serps without any backlinking .
    Hence , Prodcut names show as BHW pages before sales pages sometimes.
    All in All this method does work . IF you want to trun even more sweet , Think about buying an email blast to all the members from the forum owners or do it in the dark and PM all the members :)

    Quite good tip, especially with a well known & decent PR forum in that market/niche.

    you dont link it with lashes8ever, you would link the thread with longtails as an authority forum will rank for those with more ease. if you get the post ranked and it is not active anymore, personally i would edit OP with something like edit: finally i tried the product that [account2username]'s recommendation and bought it here [yourlink]. so far i am pretty convinced and see the first results.

    another trick to get the right content for asking real-looking questions is to read questions in the targeted niche on yahoo answers and restructure the wording.
    opening threads with real looking questions will gain you trust, if you avoid those one sentence posts.
