While my fiance is busy proofreading my first ever info product, I’m busy planning the launch. There are a lot of things you don’t think about when you decide to release a product! I’ve got the ebook written, but there are a lot of other things I’m getting together. I was thinking it would be a good idea to list them, not only so I don’t forget any of them but in case you hadn’t thought of it!
- Graphics for the minisite.
I ordered the minisite already. It was supposed to be ready this week but the designer asked for some extra time. Well, he’s the designer. I’ll give it to him if it means I’ll get a higher quality end result! Really it’s just a header and an ebook cover because I’m using Profits Theme for the sales page. I’ve got a little bit of experience with it since I set up my video game PLR mega pack. That page looks a little boring but you can add a color box around it to make it look more like your standard minisite.
- Prelaunch freebie.
Since I’m waiting on graphics, I figured why not build a targeted list to email when my product is released? Since my product is about writing Amazon review articles, I decided to write a freebie that lists the different ways you can make money writing this type of article. I’m also discussing which are generally more profitable, which take the most work, and all of that stuff. I’ll link to some recommended resources as well but in the end my hope is that people will want to pick up my guide on writing the articles by the time they’re done reading the freebie.
I outlined it today and am writing it. It’ll be some great information if you don’t really know how to make money writing reviews. I’ll be sure to share it when it’s ready!
- Affiliate toolbox.
I’ve never really set up an affiliate toolbox! I’m ordering a vertical banner, a horizontal banner, and two sizes of square banners. I’ll also write a swipe email and a few tweets for affiliates to use. It’s kind of exciting to be setting up affiliate tools!
- Emailing potential affiliates.
I’m getting ready to start emailing potential affiliates about my guide. I’ve got a small list. As soon as the product is proofread I’ll be emailing out with review copies for them.
I’m still going over everything to make sure I don’t forget anything. This is so exciting but I’m still pretty nervous. lol
What progress are you making towards your first info product?
