While this article was written for writers who are looking to self publish their own book, the technique that Shelley outlines here can be used to promote just about any type of product, even an eBook.
I’ve been trying out the world of Giveaway events lately to build some of my lists. I’ve had some mixed success and I think it’s time to share a bit of what I’ve learned.
Yesterday I wrote about deception in marketing. Today I want to follow up on the example that I talked about.
More and more internet marketers are using deceptive sales to techniques to use and abuse their lists.
* They deceive you with the ad swaps and solo ads that they get others to send.
* They deceive you on the landing pages that you sign up on.
* They deceive you in the products that they give away.
* They deceive you in the emails that they send once you’re on their list.
And they expect you to buy from them?
With the Christmas season approaching, you’ll find a lot of giveaway events that have a Christmas based theme. There are two events that I will be contributing to during this time. But the one that I find the most intriguing is the Christmas Greetings Giveaway. There is an interesting twist to this event and I’m looking forward to seeing how it plays out.
I’ve had an epiphany. A breakthrough realization. I now know what is the problem with internet marketing and list building. It’s me! That’s right, me.
“Well,” I hear you ask “how do you know this?”
Great question. I know this because an internet marketer told me so.
