My Wacky Test Marketing Experiment Succeeded

Written by Jim Green

In a previous article I recounted engaging in a wacky piece of test marketing – and now I’d like to provide you with a progress report.

I set up a temporary website with a sales pitch for a product which I had yet to create - and cheekily signed off with a visitor survey request instead ofrepparttar customary options to purchase.

The questionnaire went like this…

1.Doesrepparttar 142717 sales message tempt you to buy? 2.Would you downloadrepparttar 142718 product for evaluation? 3.Would you pay $... forrepparttar 142719 standard version? 4.Would you pay $... forrepparttar 142720 deluxe version? 5.Will you subscribe to my newsletter?

Simple but loaded questions coupled to a device for capturing opt-ins.

Did it work?

You betcha!
