Week 3 of Internet Marketing Uber Production

January 23, 2012 · Print This Article

Today marks the start of week 3 of this challenge Susanne Myers and I have going where we’re trying to see how much we can get done before the NAMS conference in Atlanta. While I’ve been getting a lot done and I’m quite happy with that, I’m sure getting tired. I think Susanne feels the same way. But it’s worth it in the long run!

Last week was all about product creation and launching a product. This week will be about marketing the product. I’ve learned that while I’d love to just spend my time creating, it’s all for naught if the finished product isn’t promoted extensively. If you’ve ever put your creation in the marketplace, you know what I mean. ;)

I‘ve got some personal things that will be taking up about 1/3 of my week, but I’m going to work hard when I can.

So here’s this week’s agenda:

1. Finish up the chapter I’m doing for Connie Ragen Green’s next Kindle book.

2. Market my product. The best bang for the buck, by far, is to have my wonderful affiliates spread the word. So I’m going to have an affiliate contest! I’ll be working like a mad woman today creating material they can use and letting them know all the details. I LOVE doing affiliate contests because I get to see new marketers earn their first-ever commissions and I also get to watch how the super affiliates do it with style and craftsmanship. Everything in-between is wonderful too. If you’d like to join my affiliate program, you can sign up and I’ll be mailing out the details for the contest soon. This should be fun! :)

I will also be contacting marketers who might be interested in joining in because the fit is good, i.e. they have readers or a customer base that could benefit from the product.

3. Finish up the details for something the amazing Sheila Atwood is working on for me. When you’re weak in an area, you should surround yourself with people who are strong in that area! So that’s what I’m doing.

Now I’m going to hop over to Susanne’s blog and see what she has planned for the week. Join me?

For that matter, will you join us in this week’s production challenge? Comment below if you’re not afraid to be held publicly accountable!

    Sounds like another busy week for both of us. I love the fact that you’re focusing this week on product promotion.

    Aside from the affiliate contest – which is huge – what are you going to be working on to promote your new article starter pack (which is excellent by the way).

    Good Luck on achieving your goals this week. I bet you are excited to have these things done perfectly. I will share this with my friends to see if some of them are interested to join the affiliate program contest.

    I have no doubt that everything you put on that list to accomplish before that conference, you’ll do Peggy. Come rain or shine my friend.

    I didn’t finish my project I had set for myself to be done my yesterday. No excuses I know but I had a friend that ended up in the hospital so one full day was shot dealing with that. Then Saturday night I pulled something and man oh man was I ever hurting yesterday. To say the least, I had to take a break and just relax. Really glad I did too because I feel so much better today. Now I have to pound the pavement to finish that project, I’m a couple days behind now darn it. Oh well, life does definitely get in the way when you least expect it.

    My project for the week is actually a project that will be ongoing forever, or I hope it will be forever.

    I am creating recipe ebooks for free giveaways and some for
    purchase on my new site. Two of my business partners are
    in the UK and I am the lonely American. With that said, I finished
    a conversion (UK/US) ebook for recipe adjustment for both

    My specific project this week is getting a Valentine’s recipe ebook
    written and 9 more single recipes for our launch. I just finished
    the first recipe an hour ago.

    I realize that the Valentine’s launch might be a tad premature, but
    I want to do it anyway.,,sort of stubborn. New content will be added daily once I get on a roll…just don’t want to loose the Valentine’s market.

    I love to cook and love to eat, so this is a project from my heart. I am not going to let a little roadblock like a short launch date bother me…sleep is highly overrated at times. This might be one of them.

    Hi Susanne,

    Thanks for your kind words at the Easy Article Starters! I value your opinion. :)

    As far as promoting the new Mega pack, the affiliate contest will be the main focus this week. A good affiliate contest needs to be nurtured and babied to make it grow like you want. Note to self – don’t spell the word “affiliate” wrong when creating the link for affiliates. :( Fixed now.

    Otherwise, right now I’ll be posting about it here, over on my AllstarPLR blog, Facebook, Google 1+, and do a little blog hopping and commenting – especially those with ComLuv.

    I’ll also be writing some written interviews for affiliates who request them.

    Good luck on getting all your guest posts written this week! That’s a huge undertaking IMO and I wish you well.

    Hi and thanks Farrell. Actually, I aim for perfection but fall short because perfection takes too much time. I prefer “Fantastically good enough, but not perfect”. :)

    Thank you Adrienne!

    You know, life’s little and big happenings always throw a wrench into our plans, but I think as long as we keep moving forward whenever we can, we’re going to accomplish much. Even though it can be so frustrating!

    Good for you that you listened to your body and took some time away from the computer when that pulled muscle told you to.

    Good luck with your project! I’m sure it’s going to be great, even if it’s done a little later than you would like.

    Hi Pat,

    Valentine recipes sound so… romantic! Good luck with it.

    I always feel like I’m running behind when I enter a seasonal market. Maybe that’s why I tend to stick to evergreen niches. But seasonal markets can really be winners.

    I think you’re right to go for it even though Feb. 14th is looming on the horizon. What have you got to lose? I mean, besides your mind as you rush along? :)

    Good luck!

    Thanks, Amanda. Positive results are what it’s all about!

    I lost my mind a long time ago, Peggy. I just keep it hidden and smile
    mysteriously a lot. It confuses critics.

    Thanks for the good words.
