At this point, promote now, or wait ‘til beta ends?
« on: January 12, 2011, 02:35:06 PM »
I signed up to be an affiliate about two weeks ago intending to send a promotional message to my email list; but due to various reasons I was not able to work on this until today.

My understanding is that the beta testing is about to end, so I am wondering:

Would it be better to do the mailing in the next couple of days, or to wait until the beta testing is over?

Let’s say somebody downloads the beta and then it ends a couple of days later: will that somebody still be able to play with the software for some time before deciding to purchase, or will their free trial period end with the end of the beta testing?

Thanks,

Carlos

Carlos,

You need to get your promotional email out as soon as possible.

When the BETA is over, they will have to buy!! And if they have
tried it (at all), they will most likely buy, if it fits their needs..

But, the good news is that Jon's affiliate links for you will still be
attached to their purchase for quite some time, so even if they
don't buy immediately, they will be buying from you.. ::)
