:: Promotion during May - Launch Month
The only promotion that we did during the month of May
(the first month's promotion) was
via a joint venture with the website http://steroid-encyclopaedia.com
where Mick regularly contributes some articles etc.
We joint ventured with Steroid Encyclopaedia on the promotion
of the ebooks and split the profit 50/50 after the payment handler (Clickbank)
had first taken out their part.
The promotion consisted of a "pop under"
window on the index page, to capitalize on
all the site's exit traffic, (people only see this when they leave the site),
therefore not affecting Steroid Encyclopaedia's own membership sales
in anyway whatsoever.
The only other promotion that happened during the month was
via two seperate announcements to the Steroid Encyclopaedia ezine list.
:: Here are the two mails that were sent out:
1) http://steroid-encyclopaedia.com/update-may2002-1.htm sent out 12th May
2) http://steroid-encyclopaedia.com/update-may2002-2.htm sent out one week
later on the 19th May 2002
:: Unique visitors during May
As you can see on the screen shot
(see link below) a total of 6106 unique
visitors landed on
http://mickhart.com/steroidbooks during May, of which almost all came
via the Steroid Encyclopaedia joint venture promotion. (There was a small amount of traffic,
and subsequent sales
which came from Mick's own existing customer base as well).
here to see screen shot of unique visitors for May, figures by WebTrendsLive.com counter. You can see the high increase
in visitors when the emails were sent to their ezine list.
:: Sales for May
The total number of sales made during
May were 372,
which can be verified by the screen shots below. (Please note that we
have "hidden" the customers names to respect their privacy,
but all transactions for the month are clearly shown.)

2002 - 192 sales

:: Conversion rate for May
372 sales from a total of 6106 unique visitors gives a
conversion rate of 6%, or put another way 6 out of every 100 visitors to the
site buys the ebooks, which means approximately 1 sale for every 17 visitors.
This is a very high conversion rate and mainly due to 3 reasons. 1) We had a
professional copy writer and web designer make the sales text and site, 2) the products are
proven sellers 3) the package represents outstanding value for money at only $29
with a no risk guarantee.
:: Commissions earned by Steroid Encyclopaedia
On this joint venture with Steroid Encyclopaedia we split the
profit 50/50 (after Clickbank -- the payment handler -- takes out their
handling charge), which gives a total commission to both ourselves and Steroid
Encyclopaedia of $12.91 per sale from each visitor that they send who buys.
In this case Steroid Encyclopaedia made a total of 322 sales
(from the 372 total sales) which can be indentified on the above screen shots by
their clickbank nickname "steroids" appearing under the "referral" column.
>> In monetary terms
Steroid Encyclopaedia earned a total of (322 x $12.91) $4157.02 just for the month of May
2002 without affecting their own membership sales in any way whatsoever.
Steroid Encyclopaedia sent a total of 5220 unique visitors
(from the 6106 total) to the site during this month, which
means they earned a total of 80 cents per visitor who clicked on their joint
venture link -- which is exceptionally high.
Also remember that we made the
pop under for Steroid Encyclopaedia, and we also made the 2 emails that they
sent to their list. In total the guys at Steroid Encyclopaedia spent less than 1
hours work in the whole month simply adding the necessary pop under code to
their site and sending out 2 emails to their list.
To summarize, Steroid
Encyclopaedia made a total of $4157.02 dollars income for
less than 1 hours work on their part (and that was the first month only) just by
linking to us... and you can do the same, it's all explained below.
:: Were the customers happy?
There were only a total of 7
offered a "no questions asked 180 day money back guarantee") from the 372 sales. This is a refund
percentage of about 2% which is very low for an electronic product.
for an electronic product is between 5 and 10% with almost all refunds always
being requested within the first few days after purchase, so we don't expect
these figures to increase.
You can see the actual refunds by looking at these screen

15th May 2002
>> Click here to see screen shot of refunds on sales from 16th to
31st May 2002
This is an indication that the customer satisfaction level
was exceptionally high, meaning that not only does this product sell very well
but people are delighted with their purchase.
If so many people are happy
with their purchase then they will also be happy with you for having refered
them to the Layman's Guides. It's a win win situation for you and your site's
visitors. They get a great product that represents excellent value for money and
you get a referral commission.
:: Can you earn the same?
It all depends on the size and
responsiveness of your ezine list and also the amount of traffic you
generate at your website. Steroid-Encyclopaedia is ranked 65,897 by
Alexa (at the time of writing this) so that gives you a fair idea of
their traffic -- maybe you can earn much more!
OK, I've seen
enough, I want to get started
