As I’m writing this, the time is rolling ever onward towards launch time. The launch of my very first product…
It hasn’t been an easy road. I’ve been working my socks off all week. How do people do this stuff in a couple of days? I suspect that they are aliens or at least in possession of some manner of time machine! 🙂
There is sooooo much to do for a launch. Quite apart from the product, which took months of work, there’s the website to design, graphics, download pages, affiliate pages, T&C pages, autoresponders to learn about, affiliates to get on board, the list goes on and on. At one point I felt like my to-do list was growing faster than I could complete the tasks and nothing was going smoothly.
Yesterday, I thought it might not happen. But I’d already delayed from Sunday and I didn’t want to let it beat me. It would have been so easy to just give up, but that’s not the way I roll. So I worked like stink all day and I came out the other side relatively unscathed, although I was so stiff from sitting at the computer all day I considering oiling my joints! It was a great feeling at the end of the day when I knew that I was going to meet the deadline. And I’m proud that I’ve got this far with my sanity intact… well mostly…
There’s no going back now! This is where the Internet Marketing adventure really starts to get interesting. Will people like what I have to offer? Will they hate it. So far feedback has been good and I haven’t even need to blackmail my reviewers… But I know what they did! Mwahahahahahaha! Now what was that I was saying about sanity a moment ago…
I spent a long time yesterday checking and rechecking that I’d done everything and that everything was in it’s place.Then I discovered that the links I’d posted to the affilate pages didn’t work! There followed a mad panic where I went around resposting the correct ones.
I relaxed again, double checked everything, was sure there was nothing more to do untl the morning and went to bed happy… First thing this morning it struck me! I’d been so tired when I’d given details about my launch to the entire world and his dog, that I had in fact given the wrong time! 11am was emblazened on my brain, because launch was at 11am EST (you have to do things in US time – it makes them feel loved 😉 ). I’d been so tired that my timezones had got muddled and I’d moved the whole of the US to the other side of the world and told everyone 11am GMT (4pm EST), which is completely back to front!
Aargh! So another frantic posting and emailing session ensued – correcting my error and feeling like a right numpty. And now I sit here wth less than 2 hours before launch… I think everything is done… I hope everything is done… but I’m strangely calm. How long it will last I don’t know, but for now calm rules 🙂
You’re proabably wondering what a genie has to do with all this? Well it’s the name of my product – Undercover Resource Genie to be precise. It conjures up the best of the free professional quality resources at puts them your fingertips! Some are so good, you may never even have to upgrade to the paid versions. They’ve certainly helped me to get started in Internet Marketing and I hope that they will help other people too….
So, it’s now just over an hour until launch. Time for some last minute checks as the nerves start to show. One way or another life will never be the same again 🙂
