No more email, no webinar, no posts.... More sales! WTF!

Recommended Posts

I have one old project which I have not killed for sentimental reasons, but I used it before to make a bunch of tests on it, my first webinars to sell, my first email list (I got almost 35k emails at its peak), I learned SEO with it , I spammed with it etc....... so last year I started to cutting some of the "losses" I canceled my aweber account for that site (so no more email marketing), I stopped making webinars for the site so I canceled that account as well (the free ones did not the cut the amount of people that some times arrived to the webinar)..... those were little steps to little by little "make a business desicion" about the project, because it was not making enough money to keep all that infrastructure, yes there were sales, yes there were visitors ...... but I always felt that I was subsidising the project and justifying it because I was "learning and making tests so the knowledge I got from it was worth the investment".... so fast forward to this year, no more email list, no more promotion, no more link building, no more spamming, no more webinars ...... and.... IS MAKING WAY MORE SELLS THAN IT HAS EVER MADE!!!!!!

 

WTF???

 

Do you have experienced anything like that before?.... I mean no more emails, no more contact, no more answers from me (because people keeps comming, posting questions, etc.....) but know I dont even post anything....... I dont know what should I get as a lesson from this

Is it getting more traffic than in the past? Or did you not really track the traffic?

 No Jill, no traffic peaks, no new sources of traffic, nothing new that I can see of, I can't understand it, have that ever happened to you? I am trying to get a conclusion from this, but I dont know what to get from it, specially now that I was getting ready to close it.

Hi there!

 

You're right, this doesn't make a lot of sense, but, cool! :D

 

I have a sight that I haven't done a thing with, seriously, in years.  It doesn't even have any content, products, or anything, it's a blank site.  It gets a ton of traffic! 

 

The only other thing I can think of, is if you take something away from someone, they want it more! 

 

Obviously I have no idea, but there's couple of ideas/thoughts for you.

Perhaps the product is enticing but your marketing sucked?  LOL - That sounds mean, but it could have been something about the way the product was marketed that turned people off.  Maybe you hype things a little too hard?  Maybe contact people too often? 

 

What I would do is take a good look at your marketing and analyze the reactions you were getting to it.

I was going to say that maybe your email list just didn't like you... lol.

 have that ever happened to you?

I've had sites that I set up, let run rogue, and then a sale out of the blue just appears.

 

Sounds like you've had something else happen.

 I dont know what should I get as a lesson from this

 

I would think there are at least two potential lessons here - or at least something to try and learn more about.

 

If you continue to make the same level of higher sales (it wasn't some one-time fluke thing), I'd say lesson one is you have a good product with a market and a demand.

 

I'd think lesson 2 is that your marketing was driving the customers away rather than help the sale.

 

If you've now got some regular, baseline sales going on, I'd say put some marketing back in, one small step at a time and try to increase the sales. 

 

It's been a week since you first posted. Has anything changed?
