Affiliate Marketing Success Tips & Tricks
Hey folks. It's Thomas bringing you another “Daily Fix" - Affiliate Marketing Success Tips and Tricks. I thought I’d “dive a little deeper” and go over another key success factor for really achieving those big affiliate pay days.
Consider this part 2 of 2.
Today, let's talk about another simple way to ensure you’re working to maximize your own affiliate commissions every time you make a sale.
The techniques I’ll suggest below will primarily apply to those types of high-ticket affiliate programs I referenced yesterday like online mastermind programs, affiliate training programs, and high-ticket online and offline coaching programs that offer multi-tier products for sale.
If you’re involved in any of these types of programs this will be super relevant to you.
Want Big Affiliate Paydays?
1 Stop Doing This – joining multiple affiliate programs at the entry level.
Let’s face it… anyone who has tried their hand at affiliate marketing has done this at some point for various reasons. Typically, it’s simply a case of “the shiny object syndrome” where we start one program and then all of a sudden, we come across another hot program that looks promising.
Before you know it, you’re knee deep in 5 different programs and you’re not making money in any of them. And you’re not going to.
This is by far the biggest reason why so many affiliate marketers either fail to make the larger commissions or they simply out right fail in their affiliate business endeavors.
The “big secret” the gurus don’t tell their affiliates is that traffic will make or break their business. It’s like a brick and mortar store in the mall that has no web site and no foot traffic past their store. They have no hope of staying in business.
Affiliate marketing is the same. Without a constant stream of healthy leads running into your sales funnels, you cannot hope to make little or big commissions, or even to survive for that matter.
On top of that, very few beginner affiliates can afford to drive traffic into multiple offers or programs.
If you need to set aside a $500/mo. budget for traffic into one offer, but you happen to be an affiliate for 5 different offers, well now you need to budget $2500 for traffic into all 5 offers.
That just simply isn’t feasible for 99% of beginner affiliates. After all you jumped into this game to make money not go broke or in debt your 1st month right?
I’m sensing maybe a part 3 here – we’ll see where we go…
Anyway… the key is to go deep (all in) into one program not “knee deep” into 5 programs. You’ll never make it that way unless you have $2K-$4K in investment capital per month for traffic.
It’s so simple, yet so many newbie affiliate marketers make the same mistake over and over again.
2 Start Doing This – go deep (all in) into one program
If I could make just one recommendation to a new affiliate marketer who’s just starting out, it would be this:
- Get In
- Get “All In”
- Get Traffic
- Get to every training session they offer.
By Get “All In”, I mean just that. If the program offers a multi-tier product structure, buy in at the absolute highest level you can even if you may have to stretch a bit out of your comfort zone.
I should probably preface the above with this first:
I will “assume” that before someone decides to invest $500 - $2K or more to go “all-in” into an affiliate program, that they have of course researched the program thoroughly and fully believe in and trust the leadership of that particular affiliate program.
That means you:
- Reach out to the program leaders to ensure you actually get a valid response from a live person.
- Check any references online and off if at all possible, affiliate reviews, social proof, Better Business Bureau, ratings etc.
You get the idea – do your due diligence FIRST before you invest.
Now that you’re comfortable with the program you selected and can really stand behind it, go deep and go all in.
You want to ensure that you are positioned to make the highest commissions possible and with most affiliate and network marketing programs that typically means you personally need to be invested at those levels.
You may have heard the phrase;
“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”
But that does not apply here. Heed the advice of one of the richest investors in the world;
Warren Buffett, says,
“Put all your eggs in one basket and watch the basket very carefully.”
And I agree.
Don’t spread yourself so thin that you can’t afford to drive traffic to your offers.
Pick one really good offer that is proven to convert, then go all in on that one offer.
Drive all your traffic into that one offer and do this for an ENTIRE YEAR before you even consider any other affiliate program.
You need to have patience. Focus on one single program for an entire year and eat, sleep, and breathe that offer and nothing else.
I guarantee you will reach a level of success you didn’t previously think possible.
Affiliate marketing is NOT a get rich scheme.
It is a business model that takes:
- Investment of resources both money and time resources
If you can actually do the above for an entire year; I have all the confidence in the world you can succeed.
Simple steps, simple process, but not easy for most affiliate marketers to maintain that kind of focus over the long term.
Below are a few noteworthy programs that may warrant a review.
Pick ONE, and ONLY ONE, and promote just that program for a year and be amazed at where you’ll be a year from now.
