    Default Results so far with selling the New PLR Manager ESB version

    Hi guys,

    Now, I know a lot of you don't care about selling online to the bottom-feeder Internet marketing crowd. I don't blame you one bit.

    But I think it's a good way to test your software and get some feedback...plus earn a few bucks in the process.

    It's good also I believe to just get something out there and not get too hung up on trying to make everything perfect beforehand. A minimal viable product strategy.

    Personally, I plan to move OUT of the Internet marketing space soon, although sometimes I feel like Michael Corleone in the Godfather 3, when he says, "When I try to get out, they pull me back in!".

    Anyhow, PLR Manager Pro V2 has been available for about a day and a half and sold 31 copies so far (about $401 in sales), and so far there have been ZERO support requests. No peep out of anyone.

    That wasn't the case with the TSB version, because it had some older "components" (I guess that's right, Thomas?), it sometimes worked ok and sometimes didn't for a small percentage of folks...but generally people liked it and most importantly, they needed it.

    So with regard to marketing ideas, I think it's important that you try to find a genuine need that either isn't being met at all or being poorly met.

    The other option is to find needs that are being met, but where there is some way you can meet the needs better or in a specific area better. That helps you compete with the big boys. Not everyone likes huge programs that have a gazillion features.

    I think our advantage with ESB is that people still appreciate ownership. Online apps can't give you that feeling of ownership, and the largest buying crowd with the most money is still the gen-x and baby boomers.

    And that group of people like their laptops and desktops for software rather than mobile apps, and they started using computers when desktop software ruled. So there is the ownership aspect and the nostalgia/familiarity aspect with ESB.

    I have 3 pretty big affiliates who are about ready to promote (probably this weekend) and so I should get some more sales and we'll see how it goes. So far it's going well and ESB is a rock solid software maker and stable.

    This is the sales page if you want to look at how I'm promoting it. Simple sales page really. Not a long page. A few bonuses. That's about it.

    Thanks, guys!

    You're right, Robbie. It does show "Model Editor" on all of the windows instead of "PLR Manager Pro". I checked it on another copy installed on my remote server too to make sure it isn't just on my computer.

    I guess it's a glitch from converting the .tsb file to .esb. Not sure why really.

    ================

    Another cool thing about ESB is the browser. Excellent rendering, so I have the software open up to a "Quick User Guide" with a "Support" button on the page as well. Later I'm going to add a blog and plr store and have those buttons on the page also. Might generate some more sales that way. Gives ESB a hybrid touch.

    My keyword tool is a script on my server that loads in another section of the software inside a browser also. Works great.

    Lots of possibilities for making money with ESB.

    I did that with TSB too but the correct rendering of the pages wasn't always possible.

    Mel, I'll take a look at the title when I dive into the updating.

    Glad to hear the browser is working a lot better than the first version. The old version was based on Internet Explorer... and a older version at that (which I didn't have control over). The new browser is based on Chrome and I have control over what version. It added more to the installation but as worth it, imo.

    The hybrid stuff is cool. Nice way to pad the feature list. There are a lot of scripts on Codecanyon that you can purchase rights that allow you to include scripts into a final paid product.

    Mel, thanks for sending me over that older project.

    As noted in the last release, the updates should be working now. I also tested the old project conversions using your file.

    The project I converted was showing your title correctly.

    Did you change anything in the Model Editor?

    Thanks Thomas! I don't think I changed anything, but everything is fine on my end. I'm going to try a conversion later with a product that I didn't market very well but had some nice features and see if I can sell that better this time as a V2.

    On what we were discussing...that forum idea is good. Have you ever heard of Ning? It's like a social media forum you can run. I'm going to look into that more soon. Costs a little, but at the basic level not too much.

    I never head of Ning. I have plans on upgrading this forum to Xenforo this year. Once I get a little free time. haha

    Or you could set up a community on Facebook and once that is built up roll it over to a forum.

    Xenforo will be good!

    I'm at 110 sales so far with the new PLR Manager. Moving up some every day...and a few hundred dollars made from the buyers promoting other offers to them as an affiliate.

    I guess it's fair to say I got really burnt out on online marketing and had to take a break for a few months. But it feels good to be back into the swing of things.
