The True Story of a Unemployed College Baseball Player Who Went From Failure to Famous in under 8 Weeks
It was the summer of 2010, early July to be exact.
It had been nearly a year since I started my first site, TrainBaseball.com, where I was trying to sell information products (ebooks, videos, etc) that would teach baseball players how to improve their game.
Even more impressive, I had just graduated, landed a soul-sucking desk job, and was still living in my parent's basement (trying to save up for my upcoming wedding in October).
I had almost decided to stop working on my site, stop wasting time on tactics that were obviously not getting me any results. I had no traffic coming to my site, no email list or subscribers reading my blog posts, and certainly no one had decided to buy any of my products.
And then it happened.
I decided as a last-ditch effort I would start trying to use my fan page in an entirely different way from what I saw most people doing at the time...and that's when the magic happened.
And just under 8 weeks later, here's what happened.
My fan page had gone from 46 to 10,842 fans in those 8 weeks.
The funny thing was, it wasn't that hard.
I had no idea what I was doing when it came to marketing on facebook, and I sure didn't listen to any gurus teaching me what to do. The truth is, no one really knew how to make facebook work before I figured it out.
Like I said, the process was pretty simple...I just needed a way to get people to come to my facebook page, become a fan, subscribe to my email list, and then buy my products.
It seemed like a lot tougher task back then, especially when my grand total in online sales since I had started (which was over 12 months prior) wasn't enough to buy me a cup of coffee.
