Attention traders or affiliate of trading.

Hey. This is my second posting. I hope you can help me. I would like to do a free giveaway but I'm not sure if this is attractive.

Giveaway A. $1000 USD trading account.

Giveaway B. $297 worth of price action trading course. Mostly text based

Conditions A if make at least 10%. I'll match accordingly. And they will receive or get to withdraw only the profits.

Conditions B. No condition.

I just read Tim Ferriss and Bryan Harris giveaway case studies but after 12 years trading. Nothing beats discretionary trading. Although some EA do look promising. But that's not my direction.

My goal is to sell them the free shipping plus handling book on price action trading. Upsell them to a choice of 3 pricing where they get to the choose between 50pips or 500 pips a week trading strategy or complete trading hand holding 6 week modules course. All comes with a 30 day money back guarantee.

You're pretty shit at communication, particularly writing.

I read your post twice and still know f*ck all what you're talking about.

If you're going to sell a book, then you likely need good writing for the book AND the marketing.

Take a step back. Get better at written communication, or outsource the writing. Then come back and reevaluate/relaunch your idea.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing. What the heck are you giving away? $1000 US dollars?

There are a bunch of periods in the middle of sentences.

Hey. Thank you for replying.

Hmm... True.

OK. My thoughts came to fast.

I'm in the forex niche. I would like to run a Facebook ad and do a free giveaway just like a case study done by Bryan Harris in videofruit.

One of the broker is offering a free US $1000 account. But they have conditions.

So I thought I could use this as a free offer and match the profits so as the account can be withdrawn.

Bryan Harris offer a year's worth of leadpages membership.

I would like to do the same. But I don't have a year's worth of membership to give away which I had used before.

Clickbank does sell niches related but I have yet purchase nor experience the item.

I know a good friend of mine. His name is Lance Beggs.

He is not well known in the industry but his course on price action is the reason I got better.

Would a course be more attractive than a free $1000 trading account (conditions needed to withdraw profits only applies).

I would like to know which is more desirable. I have yet done or written any course.

And yes.

The book will be proofread.

I assume that you are trying to sell Forex trading training and strategies, or just trying to push a book?

Forget the giveaway offer.

Tell me why I should get my training/information/book from you, as opposed to any of the other guys out there doing the same thing?

If you can convince me that you and your training/information/book/system is better than anyone else out there, then you can craft a "giveaway" that makes sense. But I have to believe that you are going to actually make me money, and that I can trust you. Based on your post, I don't think you have thought this completely through.

This was no easier to understand.

My .02 cents (as an analyst at a big investment bank)...no one that is smart and knowledgeable on investing is going to buy your eBook, because we know that someone promising 500bp/week, or even as little as 50bp a week is full of shit. And anyone with that good of a strategy, wouldn't sell it.

Secondly, the people that do fall for it and buy your trading strategy are going to be pissed off and want a refund because they are going to try putting it to the test, and more than likely lose money.
