What Happened When I Allowed The Mad Hatter To Take Over My Online Marketing
Returns had been steady since I created www.howtoproducts-xl.com back in December 2004. Steady, but not spectacular, so I decided to conduct a survey.
What I did was to mail those visitors who had taken up my freebie offer but hadn't made a purchase. They were presented with three optional price bands for each of ten products and asked to tick the one that best reflected value for money for each individual creation.
The market spoke up and it was clear that I was in danger of over-pricing.
However, it is wise to exercise caution when playing around with your pricing structure so soon after a launch. Do it overtly and some will accuse you of being a rip-off artist; others will say you don't know your 'a' from your 'e' (which I patently did not).
So I decided to adopt a softly-softly approach and engaged the services of a marketing specialist: the Mad Hatter.
I set him loose in my store and he returned with his alarming verdict;
"Lop 50 percent off the price of all ten products".
Hold up, I thought, but I allowed him to proceed anyway?
The result: Returns graduated from steady to spectacular: sales on the ten products in question tripled and overall returns were up by 300 percent over a 7 day period; just peachy when you are operating on a 100 percent mark up.
That's the beauty of selling your own personally generated intellectual properties. You can react to market forces and adjust pricing without the potentially nasty side-effects you incur when marketing other peoples' produce.
The Mad Hatter's strategy is available for viewing at the website featured in the resource box.

Hype! Has The Internet Gone Too Far?
I remember back in the 1980s (history for many of you reading this), I had a friend working at the University of California who had access to the Internet through the University system. It was new, it was esoteric, it was for academicians, nerds, and professional scientists.
Holiday / Vacation Time But What About Your Online Business?
For many of us, it is time to start thinking about packing our suitcases and jetting off on our summer holidays/vacation. When I had a 'normal' job, this was a time to get out of the office and completely forget about work for a couple of weeks. Things are somewhat different now though as an Internet business never sleeps or takes time off so how do you handle your online business when you are supposed to be soaking up the sun on a far away beach?
Targeted Traffic is More Important than Ever!
In the early days of web development, business owners had learned the very expensive lesson that a Web site with no visitors is of little value. Once the business owner learned that methods could be utilized to increase their visibility through search engine optimization, it then became apparent that the traffic that really benefited them, was "targeted traffic." It only made sense that if you were selling a solution, the person who will buy the solution are the ones experiencing a problem or challenge. It also became obvious that the best products and services to sell online were niche or specialized markets. Large volumes of "general visitors" (general volume traffic) may have looked nice on a statistics report but only the truly "targeted visitors" (target traffic) were usually the visitors making purchases or doing business at the Web site.
Internet: The Darling Of Business

Im Talking, But is Anyone Listening?
