Strategy WhitePaper 001 Lazy Leaderboard Strategy
Dear Fellow Affiliate Marketer,
Are you promoting product launch after product launch with only a trickle of commissions coming in...
Tired of reading those big congratulatory emails, talking about the top sellers and the big prizes they won, without ever seeing YOUR name on those leaderboards?
I know what you're going through...
I'm Pat Flanagan, and I've been in Internet Marketing since 1997.
You'd think I'd be knocking out launch leaderboards with 18 years in the biz under my belt, but I'm not.
You see, for the past few years, I've been helping other marketers launch their own products (and thus, build their own lists). During this time, I haven't been releasing products, so my own buyers list has gotten pretty pathetic.
I know tons of marketers who are always hitting me up to promote their new products. And let me tell you, it's pretty embarrassing to mail for your friends and get little results.
Don't get me wrong, I was making good money with affiliate promos... I just knew I was leaving money on the table.
I Knew There Was A Strategy That Would Work... I Just Had To Find It.
I tried every tweak and trick I could think of...
- Sneaky Subject Lines
- Long "Open" Sales Copy (Totally explaining and preselling the product within the email)
- Short "Blind" Sales Copy
- Offering Gigantic Bonuses
- Sending Freebies To Improve Engagement (that actually got me unsubscribes!)
- Sending Fewer Emails
- Sending More Emails
...But nothing really broke the ice. I had small blips here and there, but no big explosion.
After a long time of experimenting, I started exploring a few somewhat wacky ideas I had... tweaks that had produced small gains mixed with a few things I'd seen others do, and a few outside-the-box ideas thrown in for good measure.
That's When Things Started To Catch Fire!
I ended up with a strange strategy I couldn't wait to try. It seemed like it might be the solution to my problem, but it also could've been a massive failure. I waited for the right promotion, one where I knew I'd be up against some heavy hitters.
Then I tried it...
...And Zoomed To The Top Of The Leaderboard!
This was against people who easily had lists 10-30 times bigger than mine. This was really exciting! But I knew I had to carry it through to the end of the launch, because those people I was beating could've just been holding back until the end.
So I stayed the course... and continued to make sales... And make sales... And make even more sales!
This promotion became one of the top affiliate promos I've ever done, and my list was half dead. I made far more money than I'd seen in a long time from a single promo, and finished in the top 3 on the leaderboard.
Then Came The Real Test... Trying It Again!
I bet you can see what's coming, right? Because I wouldn't tell you about this if I didn't hit the top of the leaderboard every single time, right?
Well, you're wrong. The second time, I didn't hit the leaderboard...
But I STILL made more sales than I was making before I implemented this strategy.
And the money is what counts, right?
That's when I knew I was onto something.
I Kept Working My Strategy, Until Something Surprising Happened...
I kept plugging away at my strategy, refining it as I went along, still making more money than before from my promos. A few months later, though, I had an experience that showed me just how powerful this strategy really is.
I had very little advance notice about a graphics launch, plus a lot of other tasks going on, so I wasn't able to fully implement my strategy. I even did what many would call a "half-assed" implementation of it.
Brad Gosse was also promoting the same launch. If you don't know Brad, he runs VectorToons, a huge graphics site, and is a powerhouse in the graphics niche of Internet Marketing.
Brad's a friend of mine, so I know how big his list is. His list is around 12x the size of mine. To the best of my memory, I've never come close to Brad's sales on a launch.
Well... this time, I beat Brad Gosse in the leaderboard by THREE places... and I only really worked about HALF my strategy.
Here's The Best Part Of My Strategy...
Once you've done the initial groundwork (which isn't difficult), this method takes very little time and effort.
This works for me because I'm really busy with my consulting work. I make more money with actually less work than I was doing before in my affiliate promos.
That's Why I Call It... The Lazy Leaderboard Strategy
