Day 1

Welcome, and thank you for joining me. Together we will take your first step in building your online affiliate marketing business.

Over the next few days, we’re going to lay the foundation of what’s needed, and only what’s needed (no fluff) to be successful in online affiliate marketing today.

Before we jump right into today’s content, let me make a suggestion if you’re brand new to affiliate marketing or not quite sure about this whole internet marketing business:

Over this 5-Day Challenge, we'll be covering things like:

  • Online Affiliate Marketing – Like the Amazon Associates Program.


  • Internet Marketing Methods – like content marketing, email marketing, search engine marketing.

I want to make sure I set you up for success the right way so if you’re new to either of the topics above, or you think a refresher might be a good idea, then take a quick hour for each of the above and jump into my Affiliate Marketing and Internet Marketing Methods Basics courses.

They’re absolutely free and give you a good baseline foundation that we can build upon during our 5 Day Challenge.

OK, now with those out of our way,

Let’s Jump Right In!

Over the next few days we’re going to be building the foundation of your online business together. (go as fast or slow as you’d like – this isn’t a race).

We’ll be leveraging the very same systems and programs I use in my own affiliate marketing business every day so I’m not going to be sending you off on some path I wouldn’t take myself.

If at any point you have questions; just look at what I’m doing in my own affiliate marketing business and do what I do, or you can always reach out to me via email or FB and ask questions. And as always, I am here to help and guide you every step of the way.

I like to think of this Affiliate Marketing Business and List-Building 5 Day Challenge as Affiliate Marketing 101 – the foundational building blocks of a successful online business.

After this “Affiliate Marketing 101 "5-Day Challenge", the doors are wide open to what’s next:

  1. Affiliate Marketing 201 – Content Marketing
  2. Affiliate Marketing 301 – Launch Jacking
  3. Affiliate Marketing 401 – Product Creation
  4. Affiliate Marketing 501 – High Ticket Coaching, Consulting

But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves – Back to our Day 1 tasks:

The Problem:

Why Do Most of New Affiliate Marketers Fail to Consistently Make Money Online?

I get a lot of comments from new affiliate marketers that just seem to continue to struggle to make any "significant" income online. In fact, the reality is that the vast majority of affiliate marketers make less than $100 online per month.

But I'm going to help you to beat those odds in your online affiliate business by getting you set up the right way.

The Solution:

The solution to the problem is simpler than you may think.

It's about staying "focused" and keeping affiliate marketing simple.

We're not going to jump around from one affiliate program to the next and we're NOT going to give up BEFORE we reach our goals!

My YouTube channel will also have key content and live session replays to help you in your affiliate marketing business.

I use the following primary content platforms to deliver my training:

My website -
YouTube -
Email – Please Whitelist [email protected]
Private Facebook Group -

You’ll want to make sure you’re fully connected to all 4 platforms to make sure you receive all my training and content support.

Step 6 - Whoo hoo – let’s select your “Primary Offer”... Now We’re Rollin…

OK – in Day 1 we set you up to make sure you’re fully connected to me and my content so that I can be sure I am able to support you in the best way possible.

Now – let’s move on and wrap up the day with what is probably THE MOST IMPORTANT step of all.

We need to select your “Primary Offer” or “Product” you want to sell.

Now you’ll hear a ton of affiliate marketers say you need to FIRST select a niche, then select an offer, blah blah blah…

Now don’t get me wrong, to a point they’re correct, and truthfully speaking that is what I did.

But I’m here to help you short-cut some things so we can get you up and running in your own online affiliate marketing business in lightning-fast time; while still doing things the “right” way.

So… here’s your first “fork” in the road.

There are 3 primary - large profitable “niches”.

They are:

  1. The Wealth, or Make Money Online (MMO) niche.
  2. Health
  3. Relationships

I chose the wealth and make money online (MMO) niche and that is what I recommend you do for this challenge.


If you absolutely have a passion for one of the others and want to go that route – TOTALLY FINE – we can do that. I can help you set up all the core marketing tools you’ll need to succeed in those niches BUT I can’t help you find a product because I’m not familiar with those niches.

One way to find an alternative product is to simply go to and search for what you might want to sell. Clickbank has 1000's of products you can be an affiliate for. Then just sign up on that site as an affiliate.

What I recommend you do if you want to go the Health or Relationship niche route, or any other niche like “dog training” for that matter, is to find and select your product, THEN return here and we set up the rest of your online business.

Back to Day 1 Assignments – Select and Set up Your Primary “Offer”

This is the 1st of the 4 Core Pillars we’ll need to set up over the next few days:

If you recall from your Quick-Start Guide and Checklist; those 4 Key Pillars were:

  1. Primary Offer (Product)
  2. Email Autoresponder
  3. Webpage (funnel) Builder
  4. TRAFFIC - Leads

OK – I’ll assume you’re still with me and have either chosen your preferred product to sell OR you’re going to copy what I’m doing in the MMO niche.

Congrats – most people don’t even make it this far to select their product. Great Job!

For our primary offer and product, we’re going to choose and set up Dave Sharpe’s Legendary Marketer.

Day 1 Assignment Steps Cont.

Step 7 - Sign Up for Legendary Marketer

Click on the link below and sign up for the Legendary Marketer’s 15 Day Business Builder Challenge.

Note* - to be successful - You MUST understand what you’re selling:

Dave’s 15 Day Business Builder Challenge will give you a deep dive into online affiliate marketing that we simply can’t go into here in just a few days.

Plus, you need to actually “use” and “understand” what you’re going to be selling; should be common sense right?

Once you join his 15 Day Business Builder Challenge, you can go through that at your leisure while you focus here on our challenge.

Step 8 - Join the Legendary Marketer's Monthly Marketer's Club in your LM Back Office

Also, to really maximize Legendary Marketer, you’re going to want to join their Online Marketer’s Club AND sign up as an affiliate of course so you can sell the same awesome training you’ll now have access to.

With Legendary's Monthly Marketer's Club, you get brand new top level affiliate training taught by top industry leaders.

There are new classes each month as well as a live training session every Monday exclusive to the Marketer's Club members.

You'll find a link to sign up to the Marketer's Club in your LM back office under Products.

OK – so now on Day 1 – we’re starting to actually do a little work huh… AND yes, this business requires a small investment to move forward.

This is not a “click the button” “get rich quick” game; online affiliate marketing is a REAL business and requires time, work, energy, and yes, a small investment just like I referenced in my 1st blog article that probably brought you here.

If you’re looking for a zero investment, get rich program; please move on, nothing to see here…..

If you’re still here; that shows me you’re serious about investing a small amount of time and money for the chance to build a substantial; maybe even life-changing online business for you and your family.

Let's keep going....

Step 9 - Sign Up as an Affiliate for Legendary Marketer In Your LM Back Office

Next, you'll want to also sign up as an affiliate of Legendary Marketer so you can sell the same awesome training you’ll now have access to yourself.

You can sign up as an affiliate in your LM back office.

Not everyone is approved; but I have faith in you.

Legendary Marketer is very strict in keeping their online marketing education separate from their affiliate program to ensure they comply with all federal guidelines. That's another reason why I really love promoting and using Legendary Marketer as my primary affiliate offer.


Legendary Marketer

97% Overall

For Anyone Who Wants To Start A Profitable Online Business But Doesn’t Know Where To Begin. Legendary Marketer is by far my highest recommended affiliate program to promote:

Get Your Business Set-Up And Ready For Your First High-Ticket Customer In Just 15 Days!


Background – So why Dave Sharpe and why Legendary Marketer out of the 1000’s of other affiliate programs out there that we could promote as a “primary offer”?

Here are a few reasons why I CHOSE Dave and Legendary Marketer:

  • Dave is a stand-up; “real” person of integrity with a real story and who has built a $200M+ online marketing empire over the past 20 years. When someone who has built a $200M+ online business speaks; I LISTEN; it’s that simple. I learned a long time ago that if I want to do something; find someone who has already done it and do what they do!
  • Legendary Marketer has a broad range of products ranging from low to mid to high ticket products which is EXACTLY what we want.
  • Their online marketing training is Top Notch above everything else I’ve been through.
  • Their company is 100% compliant and they teach affiliate compliance when it comes to online marketing so they’re not some shady pyramid company that will be gone next month. They’re here for the long-term success of their affiliates.
  • Their in-house sales team helps close high ticket sales for YOU.
  • Their Marketer’s Club is second to none and offers some of the best online marketing training around. I love their daily “Wake Up Live” sessions and their weekly and monthly live sessions. Their Legendary Team is here to support you in your businesses.
  • Their online funnels are superb; they convert, the copyrighting is excellent, and their presentation is extremely professional.
  • Legendary Marketer gives you all the marketing assets you’ll need to successfully sell LM as an affiliate including a comprehensive email follow up series which we’ll load into our email autoresponder tomorrow.

Tomorrow is a big day so make sure you’re still following along……
