Dear Online Friend,
As you know, affiliate marketing is big business…
It’s genius actually…
What better way to get the word out about products and services online than through advertising, right?
The original advertising method was word-of-mouth.
Affiliate marketing is word-of-mouth advertising for the Internet age.
Using a variety of tools, those with an eye for entrepreneurship and an online presence can use their sphere of influence to sell affiliate products using their websites and blogs.
What’s not to like?
You get to promote products that appeal to you.
Most affiliate marketers have either used the products they help to sell or it fits with their interests.
It is easier to write and speak about an item or service that you identify with.
Many products promoted by affiliate marketers would interest their current business customers.
People start businesses in areas where they have previous knowledge.
Choosing affiliate products along those lines means content can do double duty.
And your customers will likely want to hear more about them.
In this way, affiliate programs offer additional streams of income for online business owners.
Promote as many affiliate products as you have time for and interest in.
sites with affiliate programs offer most of the tools that you need to advertise their products.
Best of all, there is no product order fulfillment or customer service questions to answer.
Those who have been using affiliate marketing as a business know all of this already.
This business model is also the key to taking your affiliate marketing career to the next level.
Sure, you can continue to earn commissions for others and make a great living at it.
But what if you could also boost income in your direction?
Maybe you have since developed informational products for your website or an actual product.
What’s to stop you from using your affiliate marketing business to enhance the awareness of your services as well?
Affiliate marketing can be used to build your list as well (we’ll cover this later).
Whether you have a blog or a website..
there is no substitute for a dedicated group of subscribers who are interested in what you have to say.
Increasing that list requires work, research and time.
You can kill two birds with one stone (so to speak)
by using advanced methods through your affiliate marketing methods, to grow your list as you increase business for affiliate owners.
It’s time to raise the roof on your current affiliate marketing projects.
If you’re new to affiliate marketing, the easiest way to get started is to target hungry market, and choose products to promote from www.Clickbank.com.
In Clickbank, you will be promoting digital products.
These are downloadable products like ebooks, memberships to websites, videos, software and similar items.
You may find commission rates as high as 50%, 75% or even more on digital products, since the vendor doesn’t have as high overhead costs for these products!
How big ClickBank is?
Taken from http://www.clickbank.com/corp/our-story :
“ClickBank has grown to be a top 100 internet retailer and leader in digital e-commerce, driving over $3 Billion in sales, improving the lives of over 200 Million customers and working with more than 6 million entrepreneurs in 190 countries around the world. Our multi-lingual customer service team now receives over 2,000 calls each day – no “you’re it!” required. The company has offices in Boise, Idaho and Broomfield, Colorado.”
Target The Market:
You need to target hungry market, and find out what the market is already buying, and you’ll sign up for related affiliate programs.
That way, you earn a nice commission every time someone buys one of these products through your link.
So let’s go through the steps required to find these products and then do your due diligence to make sure they’re suitable.
These steps include:
Step 1: Find out what’s already selling.
Step 2: Research the product.
Step 3: Check for commission “leaks”.
Step 4: Join program and get your affiliate links.
Let’s look at each of these steps in more detail…
Step 1: Find Out What’s Already Selling
Go to www.Clickbank.com. What you want to do is run a search for your niche’s main keywords (like “dog training” or “organic gardening”), and then look for two things:
1. Bestselling and popular products. Clickbank
automatically sorts your results according to bestsellers, meaning the popular products will appear at the top of the results.
Tip: However, take note that occasionally a product might be a
bestseller, at least on the day you’re looking at it, but perhaps that’s a fluke.
That’s why you need to look at this second bit of evidence…
2. Multiple competing products. The second thing you
want to look for is whether there are several similar products being sold.
For example, if you ran a search for “affiliate marketing” in Clickbank, you’d immediately see hundreds of results… and many of these products are nearly identical.
That is a GOOD sign, because it tells you that the product is so popular that there is plenty of room in the market for competitors to sell similar products.
Once you’ve determined the top-selling products in your niche, then make a note of the top five or so.
Your next step is to research them…
Step 2: Research the Product and Vendor
Now you need to make sure that you’re recommending good products to your prospects.
That’s because your reputation is very important, and you’ll be developing a relationship with your newsletter subscribers (we’ll cover this in the later chapters).
If you recommend poor products, you might get your subscribers and other visitors to buy from you once… but never again.
However, if you consistently recommend good solutions, then your subscribers will come to trust you, and they’ll buy your recommendations again and again.
Your first step is to read or otherwise review the product yourself.
In other words, buy the product and use it. If it’s an ebook, read it.
If it’s a software, use it.
Then you should automatically eliminate any poor-quality products from your list.
Now you have a list of solid products. Your next step is to do some research in Google by searching for the product name and the product creator’s name.
You might also do additional searches using words like “review” and “problems” (e.g., [product
name] problems). What you’re looking for are any red flags, such as customers complaining about lack of functionality, lack of support, an inability to get a refund and so on.
Tip: Keep in mind that just about any popular product or vendor will get some complaints from customers—just look up your own favorite products.
Also, there are some fake
negative reviews from unethical affiliate marketers.
They will write fake negative reviews, optimize in the search engines to be found for the product’s keywords, and promote their
own affiliate offers.
For instance, the #1 top product in ClickBank, CB Passive Income at http://www.cbpassiveincome.com. Because it’s so famous, many unethical marketers use it’s brand to get top ranking in Google and write negative review so that they can promote their own products. Truth is, this product have helped thousands of affiliate marketers to get started and making their first sale online. However, what you’re looking for is a pattern of complaints, or a disproportionately high number of complaints. Once you’ve further narrowed down the list by doing your due diligence on the products and vendors, go to the next step.
Step 3: Check for Commission “Leaks”
You need to make sure that there are no commission leaks on the page.
That is, you need to make sure the vendor hasn’t inadvertently (or deliberately) set up the page in a way that hijacks your commission link or decreases the conversion rate.
Here’s what to look for:
Pop up screens with affiliate links.
You can use link shortener link bit.ly, tinyurl.com, etc to hide your affiliate link.
Or if you’re familiar with WordPress, there are many affiliate link plugins that are free to use.
Once you’ve completed this check, then move onto the next
Step 4: Choose the Best Product
Now that you’ve done all the research, you can choose the best products from your list.
You’ll do this based on the overall quality of the product, the commission rate and other relevant factors (such as whether you think the sales materials will produce a high visitor-to-buyer conversion rate).
Go ahead and rank these products, with your top pick at the top of the list.
While you may promote all of these products at some point, you’ll start by focusing on just one product.
Finally, join the affiliate program and get your affiliate link (this is the link you’ll give to your prospects when you promote the product, so that you get credit for the sale).
It’s very simple to get your affiliate link.
Once you decided the product you wish to promote, just click on the “Promote” button beside the product description like the
The Secret of Generating ClickBank Affiliate Commissions With List Marketing
For the rest of the chapters below, I’m going to give you many marketing ideas and strategies to promote affiliate programs so you can make commissions.
But all of them are based on the concept of building a mailing list.
Because the secret to affiliate marketing is NOT to send your visitors directly to the affiliate program’s salespage… Instead, send them to your own lead-captured page first.
Here’s a sample of a lead-captured page:
So even though you’re not pitching any products for them to buy but simply by recommending good resources with your affiliate links, you could be generating commissions.
These are products that have proven to have a good track record for you as far as sales and appeal to your niche audience.
As far as sales go, these products have earned you the best or most consistent commissions.
If you do not have any of your own sales yet, then you can evualate by seeing the Gravity of the product in ClickBank:
Concerning appeal, these products align with the interests of your readership.
Your subscribers and/or customers want to know about goods and services that coincide with the topic of your content.
These links fall naturally within the content and are readily clicked by your traffic.
The best pillar products are those that you trust and believe in.
Where there are trusted brands, people will opt-in because of the reputation.
Those who are your loyal subscribers will read your personal testimonials and use affiliate products on the strength of them.
To begin, select two or three pillar products with which to test your affiliate marketing strategies. Identify the content that you have used to promote these products.
Do something out of the ordinary. Go beyond advertising techniques that you are currently using to promote affiliate products. Here are some of them… Bonus products are really free products that offer some value to the subscriber.
Digital products sell well and can be downloaded in 60 seconds or less.
This includes videos, eBooks, audio content and more.
The appeal is that it will only be available to those who sign up through your affiliate link.
Choose a unique report or digital product.
For instance, if you are promoting CB Passive Income, the “bonus” could consist of an eBook on how to get traffic from social media.
Instruct subscribers to forward their receipt to you and send them the bonus.
Now, they are aware of you and the quality products that you offer as well.
Using your affiliate links in this way also allows you to track your affiliate sales. Through each email sent to you from someone who used your affiliate link, you can verify every sale made through that link.
It helps if there are any discrepancies with payment.
Leave nothing on the table.
You can get bonuses by acquiring resell rights or private label rights of other products available.
If you simply type, “keyword resell rights products” in Google, you’ll likely to find products where you can obtain the rights to add as bonuses.
The Affiliate Products Offer “bonus” products to your subscribers
