  • Introduction: The following publication includes fifty powerful marketing strategies. Do you really need to know all of these strategies to be successful? Of course not. But if there's at least a few strategies you didn't know before, just imagine how valuable they could be to your business. The most important thing is to study each marketing strategy with an open mind. The more you understand about any strategy, the more useful and beneficial it will be. A careful reading of these strategies could really make a big difference in your profits.

  • 1. The "Money Offering" Strategy The "(no.) people have already offered us money to reserve the product..." strategy tells your prospects that your product must be hot if people are trying to make sure that you hold their spot before it's released. You can mention that you told the people they couldn't do that and they will just have to be present when the product goes live so it's fair for everyone. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own.

  • 2. The "URL Privilege" Strategy The "don't share this link with anyone..." strategy tells your prospects that they should be privileged to be on your list/web site because only they know about the special URL. It could be that the web site has a free product just for them, a discount to a particular product, a sign up form to your affiliate program, etc. You can make the link sound extra special by telling them it's against your terms of service if they share it with anyone or make the sign/click on/agree to a nondisclosure contact before they get to see the web site. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 3. The "Electric Discount" Strategy The "I'll take the amount off the physical version..." strategy tells your prospect that you will be releasing a physical version of your product that is related to the electronic version they already bought. You are also saying that you will take the price they paid for the electric version off the price of your upcoming physical product. So, non buyers of the electric version will have to pay a higher price for the physical version and they won't. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 4. The "Future Warning" Strategy The "this may be my only chance to warn you before..." strategy tells your prospects that they may not face the future without reading your advertisement. When you warn people about something it's usually bad so people take notice. You could warn them about your competition's product, about an upcoming price increase to one of your products, an event in the world or your industry that could affect them from gaining their desired benefit, etc. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 5. The "Controversial Ending" Strategy The "this will help end the controversy in your life..." strategy tells your prospects that your product will relive the tension and frustration they are personal having or with someone else in their life. People want to heal mental and/or physical battles with themselves or arguements/disagreements/bad relationships that they are having with others. Usually people's controversy is related to a product benefit that they aren't getting. You just need to show them how your product can help end their specific controversy Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 6. The "Tragic Story" Strategy The "I'm going to tell you a personal, tragic story, that I've been keeping a secret for awhile now..." strategy tells your prospects that you are going to reveal something personal and bad about your life that you've been hiding. People will want to see what kind of personal problems that you've had and how it relates to your product. It could be a story about past financial problems, relationship problems, health problems, etc. People will see even business owners have problems and see how your product got you through or solved those personal problems. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 7. The "Visual Bonus" Strategy The "Bonus: you'll get the comic book version..." strategy tells your prospects that they will have a little entertainment when reading your information. Your information could be in the form of product instructions, quick start guides, ebooks, follow along guides for audio/video products, etc. Entertaining bonus pictures, drawings, photos and/or graphics can visually attract people to purchase your main product. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 8. The "They Are Watching Me" Strategy The "I can't reveal everything right now because my competition is watching..." strategy tells your prospects that you will tell them more about your new product when it's almost released and you don't want your competition to copy you. You could also give them other reasons such as they will try to rip you off and steal your profits, they will create a cheap generic version that will fail to help them, etc. It shows how evil your competition is or can be and most people won't want to buy from those types of businesses.

  • 11. The "One Link Fits All" Strategy The "sign up once and you'll be able to promote (no.) different (types of products) at once..." strategy tells your prospects that they can use one affiliate or coded link to promote many products all at once for commission or other rewards like list building. You just need to find a group of businesses that want to join and contribute in your effort. Of course, you'll include one of your own products to make money. You could also make it viral and add many tiers of income or rewards. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 12. The "No Moldy Cheese" Strategy The "this isn't the same old One Time Offer..." strategy tells your prospects that your one time offer isn't a bunch of packaged up, out of date resell rights like most of them are out there. Many people don't even sign up to squeeze pages because they think it will be the same type of offer. You need tell or remind them of that on your sign-up page so they will want to opt-in and not assume the worst. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 13. The "I'm Focusing" Strategy The "I've ended all my current projects to concentrate on this one..." strategy tells your prospects that your upcoming product release must be really good to stop your other income streams. Another way to say it is that you are outsourcing all your current projects and tasks so you can personally focus on your new product.

The "Net Percentage" Strategy The "have a chance to get a percentage of (no.)% of the net profits..." strategy tells your prospects that if they promote your product through your affiliate program they could get extra money if they are one of the top sellers. For example, 1st place gets 5% of the net profits, 2nd place gets 3% of the net profits, etc. you could do it the first month your product is released or every month to keep your affiliates motivated. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 16. The "Don't Sell Anything" Strategy The "we will pay you $(no.) every time someone (type of action)..." strategy tells your prospects that if they join your affiliate program they won't have to sell anything to make money (which is easier). You could tell them you'll pay them so much every time someone opt-ins to get your free report, downloads your free ebook, registers for your forum, join your membership site, etc. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 17. The "All Over The World" Strategy The "it's been sold all over the world, check out all these countries..." strategy tells your prospects that your business is global and people all over the earth buy it. It really helps if you've listed countries that they never heard of or are less fortunate because people who think they have it better assume they should be able to afford or enjoy your product too. You could also list all the cities, states or other smaller sections of the world and say if they don't see their location listed they could be the first buyer from that area to get it published. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 18. The "Benefit Appraisal" Strategy The " * how to increase your web site traffic (value $(no.))..." strategy tells your prospects that you are putting a financial value on each and every benefit your product offers.

They will see how confident you are about your subscription product and that they will have nothing to lose. Of course, you may get a few people that will take advantage of your generous membership guarantee but the rewards will be worth it Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 21. The "Testimonial Timesaver" Strategy The " 'I lost (no.) pounds in (no.) months!' ..." strategy tells your prospects they save time by just reading the testimonial headline in- stead of the whole testimonial. You can just ask the person who gave you the testimonial if you can use an excerpt of their testimonial as the headline. Many people skip testimonials nowadays because it seems like every sales letter has them. A short testimonial headline will grab their attention because it's bigger text or bolded. You just want to make sure you use an attention grabbing line. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 22. The "Don't Opt-In" Strategy The "you don't even have to opt-in to get our free ebook..." strategy tells your prospects that they won't have to subscribe to your list in order to get your the free ebook, report or course.

The "Personal Discount" Strategy The "you have been offered a (no.)% discount for being referred by (your affiliate's name)..." strategy tells your prospects that you made a deal with one of your J.V. partners or affiliates to just give their subscribers a special offer. They will feel lucky to be on that person's list because they realize that not many people will get this same discount because it was set up specifically for them. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 25. The "Automatic Credit" Strategy The "notice: we've already credited you ($)..." strategy tells your prospects that you will be giving them some cash back or an instant discount on their purchase. If you use it at the top of your sales letter they will want to scroll through it to see the actual price.

  • 30. The "Private Chat" Strategy The "see live (audio/video) recordings of my (no.) (minute/hour) consulting session..." strategy tells your prospects they can see it for free or buy a closed door consulting session that you took to gain a desired benefit.

So if you have a referral program or 2-tier affiliate program attached to the offer, people will want to promote it so they get a larger rebate.

  • 44. The "My Subscriptions" Strategy The "bonus: you'll get my personal list of the free e-mail newsletters I'm subscribed to..." strategy tells your prospects that you will show them a ton of e-zines that will help educate them about gaining their desired benefit for free.

  • 45. The "Non Official Launch" Strategy The "promote it (no.) hour(s)/minutes before the official launch..." strategy tells your prospects that if they become you joint venture partner before the official launch. You could offer this to big marketers with big lists since they are harder to persuade and get overwhelmed with JV offers all the time. If you have a customer only JV program, you could delay it until after your prelaunch partners promote your product for a certain period of time. Another idea would be to offer earlier prelaunch promotions to bonus product contributors. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 46. The "Personal Email" Strategy The "this is a personal e-mail..." strategy tells your prospects that your e-mail may not be to your whole list this time. It will make them feel special and singled out, even if they realize that it is going to your whole list. It would be a good idea to limit those types of e-mails to a carefully selected group of people on your list and tell them that. People might open it quicker if it doesn't sound commercial in nature. Also, if your list system allows it, use their name in the e-mail subject line. For example, John (this is personal). Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 47. The "First, Second, Third" Strategy The "the first order gets ..., the second order gets ..., etc. promoted to one of my lists..." strategy tells your prospects that if they order your high ticket product, they will get promoted to one of your many lists. The first order could get their ad published on your biggest list and the second one to your second biggest list and so on. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 48. The "Don't Buy Until" Strategy The "don't buy (the affiliate product's name) until you read this..." strategy tells your prospects that they should wait to purchase this particular product in case they miss out on something. It could be that you are going to give them a personal bonus, a rebate on your affiliate commissions, or a JV offer to promote their product to order through your affiliate link. Rewrite this strategy in your own words and make it your own

  • 49. The "Whitelist E-mail" Strategy The "please whitelist our e-mail address so you'll get our great offers, important announcements, major updates..." strategy tells your prospects if they really want to be on your list then they should whitelist you or their ISP might block the e-mails.

  • 50. The "Rebate Bet" Strategy The "I'll bet you a (no.)% rebate that you will (your product's benefit)..." strategy tells your prospects that they can indirectly make money if they should happen to not gain their desired benefit. Plus, many people think it's fun to bet or gamble. You can set up a way where they would have to give you indisputable proof they didn't get to reach their goals using your product correctly.
