My Wacky Test Marketing Experiment Succeeded
In a previous article I recounted engaging in a wacky piece of test marketing ? and now I'd like to provide you with a progress report.
I set up a temporary website with a sales pitch for a product which I had yet to create - and cheekily signed off with a visitor survey request instead of the customary options to purchase.
The questionnaire went like this?
1. Does the sales message tempt you to buy?
Simple but loaded questions coupled to a device for capturing opt-ins.
Did it work?
1. Within 72 hours of submission the web page zoomed to No.1 on Yahoo!, AltaVista and AllTheWeb with corresponding high positioning on Google, MSN, AOL, Ask Jeeves, etc.
2. Completed questionnaire forms flooded in supplying me with what I needed to know before pressing the button on production.
3. Both versions of my new product were generated in 24 hours and the website doctored to include ordering facilities.
1. 43 pre-paid downloads on 60 days evaluation.
2. 459 new subscriptions to my newsletter.
So what have I learned from my wacky test marketing?
1. Doing what you've always done before doesn't necessarily make it right because rules are there to be broken.
2. Listening to your intuition even when you think it is way off beam sometimes pays off.

The bottom line is that there are plenty of really talented people out there who will never be heard from because they don't understand even the most basic principles of marketing. Marketing isn't often taught in Fine Arts courses because the instructors, by nature, are better at teaching the craft than they are at marketing themselves in the craft. Most marketing experts haven't fine tuned their artistic talents enough to have a product worth marketing.
