Wacky Test Marketing: Part 3
Once again I used my wacky test marketing strategy to announce a new project and once again it worked - but on this occasion I had another motive about which I will tell you more in a moment.
Downloads and confirmed sales are lower than last time around but this does not dismay me because I am addressing a looser, less well defined niche.
What did please me though was confirmation that my reasoning for engaging in a second wacky test marketing run was justified.
You see both of these projects have an inherent element of website optimization about them; a strategy I have been working on for some considerable time; a strategy I have put to the test in small ways but never tried out before in full measure.
I wasn't so much concerned with consumer reaction to the second project as I was with the reaction of the search engine spiders to the optimization of my website.
Here is how matters have panned out so far with regard to major SE positioning.
More importantly both sets of results were obtained within hours of submitting the URLs.
Yahoo! No.2 out of 4,500,000 competitive pages
As apposed to?
Yahoo! No.1 out of 8,570,000 competitive pages
Clearly Google is not impressed with my website optimization strategy and also you might reasonably remark that it appears to be going backwards on the other SEs listed ? but hey, I would settle for any ranking between 1 and 10 anytime, and let Google go?
Will I try for a hat trick with my wacky marketing?
I might ? but I would be more interested to learn if anyone else is prepared to give it a go.
If so, here is what to do:
1. Set up a temporary website for a product you have yet to develop
