I have to apologize ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” this blog post is a little different from my usual informative, motivational postÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦
A few weeks ago, my personal trainer approached me about fitnesscheerleader.com. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â His opinion was that overall it ‘s great, but there ‘s one problem ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” I ‘m not generating any revenue for the amount of time I obviously put into it. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Now at first I was like, who cares? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I don ‘t really want to make money ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” I just want to motivate people and see them do well. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Which is a fine and admirable goal, right?
But of course his comments nagged at me for a few weeks ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” he suggested I sell a product. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I thought long and hard about this, and brainstormed what I could possibly sell. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â A motivational eBook? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â A pre-natal fitness eBook? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Sorry ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” I couldn ‘t see myself spending money on those, so why would anyone else? I don ‘t want to charge people to visit my site ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” that ‘s a quick turn-off in my opinion. (Though I could use eBooks as a way to get people to sign up for my newsletterÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦.). Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Then I got to thinking about my power walks…..
You see, now that running has become tougher for this preggo mama I ‘ve begun doing a walk around the park on my lunch hours with hand weights. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â But I don ‘t just carry the weights ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” I do an upper body strength routine while I carry the weights. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I need to keep my arms in shape for carrying my baby :) Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I also alternate some fast and slow walking ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” adding intervals for additional fat burning. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It ‘s a fantastic workout and keeps my walks fun. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â So I thought ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” maybe people would be interested in downloading a walk and tone mp3? Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â You know, an mp3 that you could download (for a small fee) from my site that will guide you through a great walking workout (set to some fabulous music of course)! Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â So I ‘ve begun the process of recording such an mp3, and building a sales section and affiliate section for my site. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â As an added bonus, I will throw in a free eBook with every mp3 purchased :)
My product idea is great right? But now I need some help actually marketing my mp3 – oh isn ‘t marketing always the fun part?
And this is where you come inÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦
Below is a sign up form to be notified of when my walk and tone mp3 product is launched. If you sign-up, I ‘ll send you the download info for a free trial of it (once I ‘ve finished recording it) so that you can do a review of it on your site ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬ ” if you like it, perhaps you ‘ll do a giveaway? I ‘ll even provide a coupon code for your readers. And because I ‘m a blogger and I hate doing stuff for free without getting anything in return, I will set up anyone who does a review as an affiliate so that you ‘ll earn 25% of any sales you generate! Pretty sweet, eh?
So what are you waiting for? Sign up below so we can BOTH start earning some money!
Thanks everyone for your support on this project :)
All the best,
