duhdnnpuzj don't worry x) I'm sort of a farse DN until I really start doing it full time anyways (hopefully soon!) :P
zridsy26d
so I just sent a few emails to tips of big media sites (had always avoided this strategy because i felt i'd get ignored) but a couple have answered (no quotes yet) saying they have "sponsored" posts. Is this the common practice? (for some reason I thought that they were just super picky about their stories but didn't take $) Just making sure I'm not getting ripped off for beinng a noob (which I obviously am)
twlfxjcn26d
hfzbvfq They all do content marketing of this type, so I donโ€™t think you should worry. Now the question is whether thatโ€™ll give you the exposure you want. I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever read one of their sponsored articles with any interest, and often theyโ€™re hard to find/see, too.
rbqxqeqvbimhlcr26d
I think youโ€™d be better off self publishing and then paying a link-building service
zzoxmdxmyxvstvm26d
Hrm, I knew a guy who I trusted for that
cwcrlqxwdamoigk26d
One moment
mrhytxvbcdeqopl26d
I met this dude at a conference and I know a bunch of the people who gave him testimonials, who I trust a great deal
ejsnnbfjyudnpop26d
He also was charging something really low last I spoke to him
cwahsgyj26d
hspmlug there's a lot of blog posts out there about how to get journalists to write about you for free.. i think levels has one of those on his blog too... the gist is you make it easy for them, you send them the material they need to make the writeup, etc
bikpnm26d
amrlpvsvf definitely, that's my main concern. (+<@U03TWFWKX>) I just wrote a few relevant social media sites about my story + some visuals (to make their job super easy) after reading some of those articles. That's why it surprised me that they somehow answered asking for budgets. I'm really not at a stage where I can blindly throw in hundreds of dollars. So I'll probably pass on that, but just wanted to make sure that I didn't get all those blogposts wrong and that they actually do publish stories for free if they like them. I didn't write the full story, just presented my app idea, a little story around it, my vision for it, etc
zrajiu26d
xnsmfkxqhavhtzof yeah, if money is involved then there definitely are potentially better marketing strategies! I just thought of this as a free lottery ticket and turned into a paid scratch and win $10 ๐Ÿ˜› Thanks for the link btw, I'll surely pursue that strategy at some point!
cdijfa26d
it's good to have references!
banptlefs26d
mfkgoyo journalism is dead, that's why they ask you to pay. and no I don't even get replies to product launch emails when I send to 100 journalists, nor do I get featured. I think they're overloaded by mails. So TLDR I don't think approaching journalists/media by email is a working marketing strategy anymore (it was in 2014 tho)
gpzmtzycn26d
Best marketing is make an outrageous controversial product etc
crdpvlinj26d
Ala geurilla marketing
thgmkz26d
xijigdnxzu I see, I expected it though, little effort big impact strategies are rare to succeed. I guess I just had to send those emails for peace of mind
qqqlqr26d
any thoughts on these sites that have deals with big social media sites that can attract a lot of traffic to their shops and make sales on big sale discounts? like 90% or so. I think it's megafishy and unethical to customers who discover you in an organic way. However, I then see highly priced apps being part of the setapp (an app bundler) for $9.99/mo and wonder if I'm just being an idiot
wsgchm26d
how can they do that anyways, like, if I paid $79 for an app and then found out I can get a license to it together with hundrerds of other apps for $9.99 i'd be pissed
nhzmbqkoe26d
I think personally organic is the way to go, I never pay for stuff not even ads
uvdnbgsgq26d
Go geurilla
qubobqjxt26d
I did a MacBook Pro 16" giveaway this week, got 10K RTs, over a million views on Twitter etc
bbketvhpq26d
That kinda stuff works cuz it's new
waywtavvd26d
SetApp seems a real good thing tho
iinhelvel26d
SetApp customers aren't same as your normal customers, they're ppl that otherwise would never be your customer anyway
kehqebtqk26d
So it's complementary revenue
autaaomyl26d
AppSumo works but it's a pain to support all those ppl
ekcleyowx26d
I think the radical reality is usually if your app isn't taking off yet when you posted it everywhere it's just not good enoughh
szldgi26d
yeah, saw that, that was a fun one ๐Ÿ˜› I have a ton of random ideas like those but I want to get to a minimum stable mrr before (call me conservative).
ghgnljuzv26d
Not interesting enough, or original etc
cxznytfxo26d
You wanna make something that if you show your friends they go WOW i want
koatpdljp26d
99.99% of apps/sites just aren't
ahnqjw26d
the big social media deals aren't paid, they just want you to put your lifetime subscription at something incredibly low like $19.99 saying "90% off until tomorrow!" and then driving millions of traffic onto it, and on top of that tthey take more than 50% on affiliate, so for say, your $149 lifetime, they'd ask you to go $29 and you'd be taking $15, but of course that might bring you like 5000 sales at once (that's what they sell at least)
jcgurh26d
but unfair to others to say the least (plus if your goal is increasing subscription revenue, that's not gonna help at all)
qutfku26d
I agree with you there, fortunately I think I found the click
qpizox26d
i.e posted a few posts on reddit in the lasts days and many went to the top of the subs, made the same amount in 3 days than in the last entire month (which was actually good !_!) very seasonal though, just need to grow the passive traffic
nnklvp26d
but yeah, I should start executing on/experimenting with the weird ideas
oqkeszcwb26d
Yesss niche subreddits the best
lyenbguzz26d
Look at Elon for weird guerilla stuff too
pfprooqge26d
I did 12 startups in 12mo that was guerilla
grqjgsnff26d
But cliche now
obdweltjt26d
So doing something that is outrageous, controversial, gets attention works
somjtelde26d
It's hard to figure out what that is though
kmgdervkm26d
Many times you do it accidentally and can repeat for awhile
nmltfzgcn26d
Like me sharing my revenue on Twitter suddenly took off so I kept doing it and then made /open pages
gvjuef26d
yep, you set a few new trends... originality is key. I have one idea (i've had it since the very first day I started coding) that I believe would do for really good product marketing, but now that I have a decent recurring mrr i'm a bit afraid of bringing that one to live, it's not a pivot, it just could backfire? and I don't think "soft" shipping it would be enough.. anyways I'm sure I'm gonna go for it as soon as I can, we came to play, right? x)
bngdvmryg26d
How would it backfire?
gcppmp25d
Did you give that puppy away yet? ๐Ÿ™‚
efanqx25d
So my app is about tracking habits, which is quite associated to private data (and I've been trying to focus on privacy + users owning their data + still need to do some work on the encryption side). however, I have some nice visualization of their data and part of the userbase would be keen on sharing some of their boards. I worry there can be a clash here, not only on the "philosophy" of the app but also on communication too, because people might grow worried that all their data might be viewable, or for example I might lose a lot of the more "advanced privacy group" when I talk about sharing stuff, it's a bit delicate but I am probably overthinking it
dgftsm25d
at what point did you just stop answring emails, I don't think I can handle this much longer >.<
lpzniexnfebcmoa25d
Hiring a VA to do email answering is the usual solution to this
vqhqvn25d
yeah but the nature of the emails is so diverse... dont worry I think I just ranted out loud haha ๐Ÿ˜›
xerjfhlirfdkuys25d
Less than you think
cteiogymnneeqwa25d
I run a recruitment business
dsypbu25d
will need to find someone though
clxcbbawpdzybji25d
You donโ€™t need someone to answer all emails
vrdwjibyscynkuo25d
But a large proportion can usually be done
bsanueckioccyuz25d
Someone with an Indian name applies for a job that doesnโ€™t offer visa sponsorship, thereโ€™s a canned email we send back that sifts out the 99% who didnโ€™t read it and were speculating
sjadbnrwtyuehqx25d
Someone applies with a CV we donโ€™t really believe, thereโ€™s another canned email we send back
jdhpcq25d
I do have like a few templates for typical questions, so it's the mvp of what you do ๐Ÿ˜›
utzriv25d
i'll look into that!
oytzde25d
ksxvyatcpt ^ just in case it gets lost down the timeline
usvbihlvy25d
If no revenue anything is overthinking it
rmtzbbppb25d
Until $1k/mo everything really
rhounh25d
yeah, I'm at $5k/mo tthat's why I'm a bit afraid of doing that change ๐Ÿ˜› but I guess I gotta try it, I can always fallback
vbpsrop22d
Anyone running any tech products blog that OR amazon affiliate blogs that want to collaborate, let me know?
maqkkpmey20d
Im going to have ads on one of my blogs, anyone got a good ad network to recommend ?
bjsnthsigrdx20d
Why ads? What is your monthly traffic?
svlezrdtx19d
50k views per month
hxvjdgpef19d
Around
tnxth16d
Tried AdSense (Usually a good start)?
odeos16d
Else I'd look at Mediavine. Depends on the site language.
muoae16d
I got a website with around 100k sessions / month with 150 articles. I'm most likely going to need to-do a content audit soon and create a solid overview on what content clusters I have and decide before I hire a person full-time so I can focus my new _resource_ on what actually matters.

I.e. determine the following:
A) Which ones to improve.
B) Which ones to scrap.
C) Which ones to rewrite completely.

Does anyone have any good resource for that? Plan is to take that content audit and combine it with a content strategy as well.
