Day 4

Hey friend and fellow marketer; welcome to day 4 of your 5-day affiliate marketing “business and list builder” challenge.

I’m super excited today because today we bring all the pieces together from the previous 3 days and we introduce the “magic sauce” to them; TRAFFIC.

Traffic is the lifeblood of your affiliate and by far THE most challenging component for new affiliate marketers.

You can have the greatest offer in the world but if you can’t drive traffic to it, you might as well be sending people to a blank webpage.

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!

I’ll dig into traffic a bit more below but right now, let’s just very quickly recap the last 3 days to make sure we didn’t miss anything.

On Day 1:

  • We made sure you were fully connected and you were “plugged” into all my communications channels like my private and exclusive Facebook Group where you’ll find a helpful community of aspiring affiliate marketers just like you.
  • We also made sure you got subscribed to my email list because a lot of my email marketing educational content comes directly from modeling the emails and content I send out to my own subscribers.
  • Lastly, and more importantly we set up your primary affiliate offer; which if you followed what I’m doing, you chose to go with Dave Sharpe’s Legendary Marketer. Note* - you’ll need your Legendary Marketer affiliate link today. If you didn’t sign up to Legendary yet; do so now and click below; You’ll need your affiliate link to complete today’s activities.
  • Plus, if you sent me that email I asked for you should have also received your free $100 hotel cash voucher good at over 1M hotel locations across the globe.

On Day 2:

  • Day 2 was all about your autoresponder and getting that set up to deliver your email messages to your prospective subscriber list that we’ll begin building tomorrow.
  • If you haven’t set up your autoresponder yet; Click here to set up GetResponse; the same Autoresponder I use.

On Day 3:

  • On Day 3 we set up your page and funnel builder with a free trial to Power Lead System. If you haven’t signed up for your free trial yet, click here: to sign up.
  • After you completed all your Day 3 activities and set up your free trial to PLS, you should have also emailed me and received ANOTHER free $100 hotel cash voucher good at over 1M hotel locations across the globe.

OK – ready for Day 4; let’s jump right in.

Like I said above, today is all about traffic.

Now normally you would have two choices here:

  1. You buy or essentially pay for guaranteed traffic to your offer or lead capture page.
  2. You use organic or free traffic methods like posting on social media, or creating YouTube videos, or putting links to your offers on your social media pages, or really all the above.

Like I also said, this is where most affiliate marketers fail; they fail to realize the importance of getting a continuous stream of quality traffic to their offers.

Now medium to long-term: I recommend taking the time to build up an organic audience using free traffic.

But short term; as in the period of this 5-Day challenge; that won’t be possible, so I’m going to show you how fast you could begin getting leads into your sales funnel using a very simple paid strategy.

So far, you’ve been able to pick up most of the affiliate tools you’ll need via free trial periods; but today you’ll have to commit to spending a little bit of money depending on how many “clicks” you want to send to your lead capture page.

I recommend at least 100 but honestly, I never order less than 200 because you need a few more clicks to really test a new lead capture page to see if it’s going to convert for you. You should see anywhere from 10%-30% depending on the offer. There are lots of variables; so really it just depends.

This will cost somewhere between $80-$200, but it’s vital you invest this small amount up front to see quick results.

We’ll be using one of my exclusive and trusted solo ad vendors for guaranteed clicks to your page.

This is the same vendor I use for my own business and he knows the affiliate marketing niche.

SIDEBAR - If you don’t know what solo ads are:

With solo ads, you’re essentially paying a vendor for the ability to attach your affiliate offer to their emails that they send out to their subscriber list.

In return, they guarantee a certain number of clicks (or unique visitors) back to your offer. If you use my trusted vendor, these will all be Tier 1 “real” traffic, not some automated bot. This will all be tracked and you can view the clicks in progress via your customer dashboard.

Day 4 Assignments

Step 1 - Order Traffic

Click on the button below to order either 100 or 200 clicks and within the next 24 hours or so (or Day 5) you’ll start seeing leads begin to populate your sales funnel.

Then, we just need to follow up with those leads and slowly begin to convert them to buyers.

Note on Solo Ads: Now you’ll hear some marketers recommend against solo ads; but I could not disagree more with them.

Like every marketing method, each has their own respective purpose.

SIDEBAR - Solo Ads allow us to do a few things VERY QUICKLY:

  1. Solo ads allow us to invest a small amount of money $100-$200, to quickly test new offers, sales pages, lead capture pages, whatever you want to send traffic to.
  2. This gives us an immediate return on investment via opt-ins that we can begin following up with via email to convert subscribers to buyers.
  3. Solo Ads are an inexpensive business investment to budget each month to ensure we continue to fill our pipeline of new subscribers.
  4. Solo ads allow you to tap into an existing base of active email subscribers.

OK, those are the main reasons why I feel solo ads are a necessary investment for new affiliate marketers.

Let’s face it; if you knew how to get a return of $2.00 for every $1.00 of ad spend you placed on FB, or IG, or YT, then you wouldn’t need me or my courses. But we’re not there yet.

So, let’s use Solo Ads as the next best alternative to social ad spend so we can quickly test our offer and conversion metrics.

OK – with that said, do I think you should spend money on solo ads forever and are they the “best” source for targeted traffic?

The simple answer is no and no.

But I do recommend you budget a small monthly amount for solo ads for at least 12 months or until you start to get enough organic free traffic that you no longer need solo ads to fill your lead funnel each month.

Again, this may take anywhere from 6 months to as long as 18 months to build up that organic traffic depending on how active you are.

Just remember; Traffic is your affiliate marketing lifeline – no traffic – no affiliate marketing business, PERIOD. OK, now let’s get you some traffic.

Click on the button below and simply fill out the form; it should look something like my screenshot. Just select the number of clicks of Tier 1 traffic you want and click that image.
Just send all traffic to your new lead capture page at 

You just need to give the solo ad vendor your webpage address or domain name; they will complete their own marketing message in their email. If you really want to use your own message you can, but it’s not necessary. (See screenshots below)

Awesome - You just completed the set-up of 4 of the ONLY 4 things EVERY affiliate marketer needs to succeed online:

  1. Your Primary OfferLegendary Marketer
  2. Your AutoresponderGetResponse
  3. Your page builder or funnel builder: Power Lead System
  4. And TRAFFICSolo Ads

That’s it – those are the 4 fundamental elements you need.

So let’s wrap for today.

It may take 24 hours or so to begin seeing the traffic come through to your lead capture page.

You should start to see email notifications as each new lead subscribers through your Lead Capture Page-LCP.

Congratulations again on another successful day and I will see you on Day 5 to wrap up our 5-Day Affiliate Marketing Business and List Building Challenge here.
