You are now well on your way to finding out how to supplement your income (or even replace it completely) with Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing is simple where you build an audience or mailing list and then recommend ethical products or services, via a unique link, and earn commissions. You don’t have to pay to join an affiliate programme and you don’t have to pay a recurring membership. They pay YOU when you make a sale.
Sometimes you get paid straight away, depending on the programme, sometimes it’s at the end of the month, 30 days after the sale is made, to allow for possible refunds.
Here’s How I Can Help
I’ll be here to help you by teaching you, in broad brush strokes, how affiliate marketing works. I’m also going to recommend two people with very different methods, who have taught me how to make money with Affiliate Marketing. People that I know will be able to help you too.
Russell Brunson & Clickfunnels
The first person’s name is Russell Brunson. Russell was a very successful independent internet marketer back in the early days then, just in the last five years, he created some software called ClickFunnels, which made it easier to put marketing and sales funnels together.
Funnels are just a fancy word for the whole customer journey we all go on, when we visit a website. It looks like this:
Traffic > Website > Free Gift Offer > Opt In > Follow Up Emails > Sales Offer > Follow Up > Further Sales Offers
Up till this point, we had all been cobbling our funnels together from a mixture of about five different software packages, including WordPress, a mailing list host, Leadpages or Thrive Themes. It was ok if you were very techie or could hire in tech help, but for most of us it was painful.
Russell has three great books, which he’ll send you for free (you just pay the shipping) and he’s also got a GREAT “One Funnel Away – 30 Day Challenge” which I’ve been through myself and I had made nearly $1000 in the first month alone as well as selling more of my own book and back end coaching programme.
The really unique thing about Russell and ClickFunnels is that it’s three things in one! It’s a great training, it’s a useful tool to help you sell more of your own stuff, but it’s also something you can recommend to others to earn commission OR use yourself to become a high paid internet marketing consultant.
Sarah Staar & The Licensed Partner Team
The second person’s name is Sarah Staar and I’ve known her for years. She’s the real deal, she’s British but lives in France most of the time, and I can recommend her. Sarah not only teaches people how to become an affiliate marketer, she’s been around for a while and knows some deeply techie ninja tricks. If you don’t have a product or service yourself, she’ll show you where to find some high commission products or services to promote to your audience and mailing list.
I earn some very nice commission payments every month, using Sarah’s methods.
But Before You Start…
Before we go any further, however, I would like to point out something that should be glaringly obvious, but which isn’t, for some people for some reason.
Your success in this, as well as any other endeavour, will be down to YOU and YOU ALONE. If YOU don’t take action, nothing will happen. You have to learn how to keep going, push through obstacles, how to keep motivated.
And you need to know how to take the RIGHT action or you’ll spin your wheels, getting nowhere.
I’m going to be sending you three emails over the next three days that will get your head straight about what Affiliate Marketing IS, and what it is NOT. Then you’ll be better equipped to make the right decisions about who to work with.
OK, that’s me done, check out the videos, open my next few emails to find out more about Affiliate Marketing in general and I’ll see you at the next big Affiliate Marketing conference!
