What’s working really well in 2012? 3 Predictions to pay attention too…
#1 – WSO’s (Warrior Special Offers) If you don’t know about the warrior forum, now is the time to really become a member of almost 500,000 members. From beginning marketers to advanced marketers all call this their home. Many people are making serious money using WSO’s. Instead of creating a standalone product, it’s one of the quickest ways to create a product and get it infront of people that will purchase and also promote for you. The best part is the audience is already there browsing the forum. No need to actively go out and seek affiliates.
I’ve noticed the trend becoming bigger than ever. More and more marketers are cashing in on WSO’s. 2012 is the year of the WSO and I personally plan on putting out 1 – 2 WSO’s every month this year. WSO’s have been increasing in popularity because it’s a quick way to generate cash faster than ever. With the Social Media fad fading and becoming less popular, many Social Media marketers are turning to this method and doing very well with it.
#2 – Promoting/Creating Webinars. I’ve been getting some really good results from actually promoting webinars. Webinars are not a new strategy, but it’s more popular than it’s ever been. Webinars convert up to 40% – 50% of people into sales, as opposed to long copy salesletter’s which convert around 1% – 5%. Webinars are simple to setup and get people to actually watch them. Most people prefer to learn through watching than through reading so it set’s the stage for more engagement and the bottom-line, more PROFITS. Not only that, promoting these webinars can earn you anywhere from $10 – $997 paid instantly to your paypal account.
#3 – Email List-Building – If there was ever a time to have your own subscribers list. It’s in 2012. When Social Media first came out it was easier for marketers to get their message seen on Social Networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and many more. However, I’m a BIG fan of Social Media, but when you want to make sales… Your email list is your #1 source of Traffic on tap whenever you need it. Not only that, it converts a HECK of a lot more than using the Social Media Strategy.
This is the year of Attention and Relationship building. Once you have a decent size email list, you can build relationships with your subscribers and even invite them to connect with you on your Social Media Networks because chances are they are using it already. However, when it comes to making sales… As it has always been your email list is the most responsive method. I find using the soft-sell strategy converts way more sales.
