In today’s blog post I am going to reveal a few things most Internet Marketers will never discuss, I’m going to show you some real time stats from a promo I ran on complete autopilot while I was on vacation, including clicks and sales. I am also going to reveal something that I know may make you feel you were ‘tricked’ in some sort of way, especially if you were one of the people who responded to last weeks emails telling me to stop marketing while I was on vacation. However, you have to understand I am revealing this information to educate you.
The problem was Dave Nicholson and Daniel Sumner were re-launching PLR Monthly and had a fantastic offer running while I was away and I knew I had to promote this offer for 2 reasons.
- The offer was unbelievable value
- I knew I’d make a ton of money promoting it (just being honest)
So I knew I had to promote. However, if I had taken my laptop on vacation with me my good lady Tania would not have been very pleased, after all this was our annual vacation to Benidorm in Spain and there is no way she would let me near a computer as she wanted to have me to herself for a week without the usual distractions my online business presents. In fact I was only just allowed to check my stats from time to time on on my iPhone and that was after some heated discussions 🙂
You see, the truth is I didn’t touch a computer while I was away, all the messages were pre-loaded into Aweber and there were 4 messages queued in total. This meant I didn’t have to touch a thing while I was away, so if you thought I was actually writing the emails while I was away I wasn’t, I wrote them all before I left. I’m sorry if this may seem like I cheated as I was discussing a vacation I hadn’t even started but I had this blog post planned and wanted to show you that we can plan our promos and make money on complete autopilot. Plus I did get sunburned, had a few hangovers and spent most of my time by the pool 🙂
And here are the results of this promo. The only dates that really matter are from the 6th to the 14th while I was away.
That’s almost 90 sales and over $2600 in affiliate commissions and most of that is recurring. Not bad considering I was soaking up the sun most of the time.
So never forget that even though things happen in our lives that can prevent us being near a PC we can still market and make money while we are offline.
Aweber can be pre-loaded and you can even schedule blog posts with wordpress as well as set up autoresponder campaigns that can go out at pre-determined times as soon as someone signs up for one of your lists. In fact if you sign up for the free course advertised in the top right corner of this blog you will be put into an autoresponder sequence that promotes my Mentorship Monthly program. Try it, sign up and take a look at how I market the program and remember, it’s all done on autopilot.
I am going to follow up on this post in a few days and go into a lot more detail about this promo but for now I just wanted to let you see how I effectively ran a campaign while I was on vacation. As always your comments are welcome.
SIDENOTE! If you are quick you may still be able to get locked in at the special PLR Monthly price as I managed to get it extended for a further 24 hours for you. Here’s the link you need.
