If you could walk into erotica knowing what you know now, how quickly would you rise in sales? Quite quickly. Now imagine if you walked into the game and someone said they could help you learn that knowledge? There's no trick, there's no gimmick, there's just simply listening, learning and putting in the hours.
A 60% drop in sales over three months is solid, especially coming from a seasonal high (+50% sales roughly), and into the summer months. That's amazing sustainability.
As far as bundling goes, do you really think I'm going to shoot off my entire catalog? Hell no haha. More like a few stories to help kick them off the ground. I plan on taking advantage of my mailing list as well if kinks line up. If I can get those people signed up to my client's mailing list as well, awesome! There's pure profit right there for them.
I do understand your criticism, I really do. I just wish there was a way I could hand out information to everybody without being the immediate target of scammers. Unfortunately it just doesn't work that way, so I'm going out on a limb. Maybe it won't work out. Really - there's a pretty low chance it'll work out the way I'm thinking right now.
But it sure would be nice to be able to do this. I think it would be awesome. I think it would a damn fine endeavor! Anyways, I always value your input and perhaps I should have shot you a PM and bounced some things off of you before taking this public, but I'm the kind of guy that sees the good in people rather than the bad.
A lot of people, friends and family, (and my wife lol), call me overly-optimistic. It's really hard for me, for some reason, to see the bad in a situation. I always keep my head up and press onward assuming the best.
I do see where you're coming from though and I really appreciate it. I'm not saying that sarcastically or anything. I love ya man, and I think while we do see things differently sometimes, you kinda remind me of my wife. You keep things grounded and rational. But... for there to be extreme success, sometimes you gotta take risks. Sometimes they pay off, sometimes they don't. Maybe this whole thing will fall through, and honestly, worst case scenario, I can go back to doing what I was doing before. Helping people via PM!
