We finally started generating revenue with Eat Greens Every Day. We are now selling an "Organic, Non-GMO Green Superfood Supplement". It's called Green Power. People can buy Green Power directly from the website. I am using a really cool tool called Selz.
Give it a try. You can test it out by buying my Green Power product below. :-)
Now, it is safe to say I am nowhere near the $250,000 goal yet, but this is the start of monetization, which was the goal of this challenge.
Is it fair to say I have reached 50% of my goal???
What Are The Keys To Generating More Sales?
The first step is social proof. The more proof I can get, the better off I will be.
Right now I have two reviews, and I would need over 100 to see a real impact. The tricky part is you can’t pay for reviews as that breaks all codes of transparency. I don't have the financial ability to pay for reviews as I am trying to do this whole project on a budget.
So, what I did was I gave away a few jars for free. In return I hope to get a review (you can’t force people to write a review). I gave away 4 bottles for free.
I don't don’t know what percentage of the people who I gave a free jar to will leave a review, but I will know more in the next 30 days or so.
I did receive one, which I will be posting on the website and our facebook page.
- Analyze the competition to figure out what the ideal price point for this product should be. It’s currently too low.
- Focus on acquiring more positive reviews.
- Adjust the copy on the product page in order to maximize sales.
- Create Facebook ads and case studies for the product.
- Looks for local retailers to carry the product.
- Any suggestions?
Overall, it has gone fairly well, however, it has been much slower than I expected, but I have learned a ton and I continue to enjoy the ride.
That is why I illustrated at the start of this challenge, that you must enjoy the business you are getting into or all these ups and downs will frustrate you and you may decide to give up or create a lackluster product.
Content production has slowed down a bit, since I was focusing so much on developing the product, however, I kept sharing posts on Facebook and also sharing my weekly Wisdom4Wednesday newsletter to keep my audience engaged.
I just created a guide to living a healthy life after 40 and I plan to create more content like this in the future.
To date, the total spend so far has been $5,495. Most of the cost has been using an editor for my posts, Facebook advertising and graphic design for images, labels etc.
What do you think—how am I doing so far? Do you like the product? You should order your fist batch now.
