How To Make Money With Affiliate Marketing

Thanks for visiting my blog. If you like what you see, please, share it on Facebook. Twitter and such by using the buttons below. Also, don't forget to subscribe as I am closely following the possibly dangerous idea of Google using 'truth' as a ranking tool.

How To Make Money With Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

If you are asking the question of how to make money through this channel, odds are you are brand new, don’t have a website and most likely don’t have a list.

Don’t worry about it. Even the biggest names started from square one. We just need to shorten the way with education.

The method for making money is simple in theory, but hairier in execution. The main thing needed for success in affiliate marketing is understanding that getting on top of the search engine results takes time and patience.

It takes a little time and patience to both master the method and to let the work you have put in work.

The saddest part of the affiliate marketer wannabe experience that I see is the number of folks who put in 90% of the effort required to make it and quit, just days or even hours of seeing the success that could carry them through to the other side.

As I have said in other places and will no doubt repeat again somewhere else, the steps to make money with affiliate marketing are as follows:

  1. Pick a product you can in good faith represent.
  2. Pick a marketing channel you like and want to master.
  3. Create a piece of content that fits that channel.
  4. Apply SEO techniques to that content.
  5. Promote that content as widely as possible.
  6. Put the checks in the bank.

What, Exactly, IS Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a performance based marketing channel that let’s independent contractors drive traffic to a company’s capture page, funnel, or corporate website that uses a cookie, modified link or other related methods to track which affiliate directed that traffic.

If the traffic results in a sale, the affiliate (you) gets paid.

How to Become An Affiliate Marketer

Click your heels three times and say, “There’s no place like affiliate marketing! There’s no place like affiliate marketing! There’s no place like affiliate marketing!”

Just kidding. Making the decision to be an affiliate marketing is easy. The work comes in becoming effective as one.

As I said earlier, pick a product you can represent or promote in good faith because you believe in it. Unless you are a sociopath, your passion in creating content related to that product will be influenced by whether or not you really believe in it.

If you are at a loss as to what to sell to make money commission junction, clickbank and a small number of educational companies offer outstanding affiliate marketing opportunities.

How to Make Money With Affiliate Marketing Without A Website

Chances are you are reading this not through a website, but through a document sharing site such as docstoc.com or slideshare.com.

Surprisingly, many folks do not use Google to do their research. They choose to begin at document sharing and article sites.

Document and Article Sites:

  • ezinearticles.com
  • articlebase.com
  • articlesnatch.com
  • GoArticles.com
  • slideshare.com
  • docstoc.com

By creating quality, unique content and posting it to these domains, you can effectively build your brand. Most all of them have free educational resources that can help you tweak your content to most effectively take advantage of their domain, too.

Again, to summarize the method from earlier, you should:

  1. Pick a product.
  2. Pick a marketing channel.
  3. Create a piece of content based on product.
  4. Tweak it so the search engines like it.
  5. Promote that content.
  6. Put the checks in the bank.

If you have trouble deciding what you want to promote to make money Clickbank,Commission Junction and other related sites can inspire you. Spend some time looking through what is for sale there.

If I had to pick ONE to start with it would be Clickbank. You will need to pick a nickname to build your hoplinks with, mine is tigerworks, for instance.

Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

If you are reading this, then yes, yes, it does work.

In 2005, affiliate marketing in the US alone was said by some sources to account for $53 billion in sales, so yes, again, it does indeed work.

While I have not read the report, in my research I found that Forrester is selling a report entitled US Affiliate Marketing Forecast, 2009 to 2014 for $499.00, and people are paying it, so it works.

Closing Thoughts

If you are going to represent something, make sure the commission rate is worth your time. You cannot make your rent as a beginner on $2 commissions on a product that does not have wide appeal.

Consider representing things that have a residual commission on subscriptions. Subscriptions mean you are making money this month and next. A growing number of product subscriptions will make next month much more interesting, I promise.

The single best educational program that I am involved with, use, and represent is My Lead System Pro Mastery. The program is specifically designed to directly address the challenges the new online marketer faces.

As you can see from the graphic below, and this is one of my favorites because it shows the depth and width of what is provided, MLSP Mastery provides educational paths on all the major marketing channels.

Affiliate Marketing Tips, #1

The very first tip is to look at all the marketing channels you have before you, look at your natural tendencies, and decide for which channel you think your natural talents are most suited.

Not even a complete list...
Not even a complete list…

Do you like to write letters, long emails and keep a journal? Then maybe content marketing and blogging are a natural fit for you. Are you a ham and love being in front of the camera? Then YouTube marketing is perhaps where you should start.

Whatever you decide, do it and do it several times a week. I am not going to beat the drum of do it every day but I do think four to five times a week is a good idea. Sometimes you need to take a break so you can put something good together rather than rushing out something half @$$ed, you know?

Pick on method and do everything you can to master it.

If you find you are getting no results, ask yourself whether you are really focusing on one method or if you are shotgunning it. If you are not shotgunning it, ask yourself if you are consistent in your marketing efforts. Marketing takes time to gain traction.

FOCUS on one strategy to profitability.

-said everybody who ever made any money on the Internet

Affiliate Marketing Tools

You know all those Capital One commercials asking you, “What’s in your wallet?”

Ask yourself what is in your affiliate marketing toolset.

Well? What is in your affiliate marketing toolset? If you are like most folks the question never occurred to you.

Thing is, when you do keyword research and you find a word for which you think you can compete you need to look at the number of searches for that keyword. Under 500 is a good place to start for the new person. When you create a piece of content with the purpose of making a profit, you need to understand that you need to craft it in such a way that it winds up on page one of Google’s search results.

Google’s Keyword Planner is free. I don’t use it. I use Market Samurai because it breaks everything down in terms of what my competition is doing, what their page rank is, how many backlinks they have, and so on.

My personal toolset includes

  1. Posting On Purpose for Profit1
  2. Audience Builder Pro2
  3. Rank and Stick SEO3
  4. My Lead System Pro’s Mastery Program4

Affiliate Marketing and Backlinks

Simply put, if your toolset will not create more backlinks than your competition you will not be on the first page of Google and any traffic you get will be either accidental or from other sources …which is perfectly fine. You just need to know that the majority of people do not look past page one of Google and job one of your SEO toolset needs to be to create backlinks to your page to maximize your chances of being on page one.

You can do this yourself by spending the time or you can invest in tools that do it for you. Either is fine as long as you know how many your competition has so you can set about the business of creating more than they.

Affiliate Marketing Tips for Blogposts and YouTube Videos

Earlier, Google’s Keyword Planner was mentioned as was Market Samurai. YouTube also has a Youtube Keyword Tool you can access by clicking here. It is not as up to date as Google or Market Samurai’s tools as it is new, but it is not a bad idea to cross reference between YouTube’s tool and whichever keyword tool you use.

Here are some quick and dirty blog post and video SEO tricks:

  • Have your keyword in the title
  • Have your keyword in the file name
  • Description should be about 4-5 sentences with your keyword used in them. Don’t over do it; just write a good short paragraph about your chosen keyword.
  • If you are making a video about a particular product and not linking it to a blog post because you are engaging you YouTube affiliate marketing, make sure your capture page link is the first line of the video description, and the last. This really is critical.
  • Post about your video with links to it in your social media accounts.
  • Use timestamps with your keyword in the description. YouTube will automatically create a bookmark at that point in your video as well as take note of another instance of your keyword for search and indexing purposes. This increases keyword depth without ticking off Panda.
  • Google favors YouTube…probably because Google owns YouTube. While you can and should post videos to other video sites, you need to keep posting to YouTube, too.
  • Backlinks. Create backlinks. Say it with me, “Backlinks are good; backlinks are sexy; backlinks will make me rich AND sexy, too.”  Well, rich anyways.

Now, the next thing I want you to do is click here and register for a free webinar that will help you take your affiliate and network marketing business to the next level. Do it now because you want to be in the very next presentation so you can take advantage of this free affiliate marketing training.

MLSP Review

Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.
Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.

Lots of folks entering into one or the other of the thousands of network marketing business opportunities often see the simplicity of the plan, jump in, retire for the evening, sleeping the sleep of those seeing a bright future. Like when going to bed on Christmas Eve as a child, the world is just a little bit brighter and shinier than usual.

This is a good thing; this is as it should be.

Getting up Saturday morning to work your plan, 99 times out of a hundred it centers around making a list of friends and family. For some few folks this is okay, being centers of influence arranging a meeting and speaking with credibility makes signing up folks just a tad easier and more enjoyable. The question is, are you this person?

Your recruiter told you what to do and you are hard after it.

What he may or may not have told you is the odds of success for any given person is less than 1%.

Let’s talk about what we can do about that.

Magic Bullets

I have been in several opportunities in the past, and they all said the same thing from the marketing plan side.

  • Keep a positive mental attitude!
  • You don’t lose unless you quit!
  • Don’t quit while losing!
  • You have to believe in order to achieve!
  • Six times down, seven times up!

Makes you wonder whether you are starting a business or embarking on cutting a trail through 2000 miles of virgin forest with only hand tools, does it not?

It would go much better with power tools like bulldozers and road graders, don’t you think?

Human Nature

The reason these companies present and market the way they do is basic human nature. The

When I got married, I realized I needed a plan that worked FOR ME.
When I got married, I realized I needed a plan that worked FOR ME.

majority of folks are going to work a while and fall by the wayside. 16% of those who sign up to become a distributor will remain on as customers with the company once they give up on the business side. This is a plan the company can work with.

The reason 16% stay with the company is because most companies give excellent value in the products they sell. Word of mouth is the best advertising and with the persons advertising paying for the right to advertise the products they use, it is a win win win scenario for the company.

…but you are not in the business of making a customer base for the company, are you? No, you are in the business of creating a customer base for yourself, to build a profitable business with which to support yourself, your family, and your hopes and dreams.

Right?

The Four Pillars of a Successful Networking Business

There are four pillars to any successful networker’s business. They are:

  1. Auto ship/subscription continuity income.
  2. Product revenue, things you can sell at one time costs. .
  3. High ticket revenue…at least $1,000 commission for the product.
  4. Business opportunity. Whatever business in which you are now involved goes here.

Auto ship subscriptions range from monthly orders of consumables to ongoing educational resources. Folks buying from you here are customers. They may or may not be distributors.

Many folks will drop a one time fee of $39.95, $297, $395 or whatever on training courses or tools that teach them specific skills. This is a major source of income for those folks talking about reaching high five figure incomes. They spend a great deal of time developing them. The good thing is, once they are developed they can be sold at 100% profit over and over. This is where you will get your product revenue.

You are probably asking yourself how in the world will you find the time and resources to make it to this point while you are kickstarting your business opportunity.

My Lead System Pro

Used to be that folks talked about spreading faery dust on their distributors by extolling their virtues, their energy, their determination to succeed and for these reasons, you should follow them in their business.

None of these things really translate into knowing what to tell you to do next in your business.

My Lead System Pro fills in the gaps of what you know.

Let’s look at the four pillars under My Lead System Pro helping you build your current business.

Four profit centers:

  1. Auto ship/subscription continuity income. Again, these are your customers buying products from you on a monthly basis.
  2. Product revenue, 100% Mastery, courses, trainings, etc.
    (MLSP bread and butter stuff) substituting for your own products.
    You don’t have these now, right? MLSP supplies you with them. You are in business.
  3. High ticket revenue…at least $1,000 commission for the product. MLSP has several that you can use to build You, Inc. MLSP teaches you how to build your brand.
  4. Business opportunity. (MLSP is a generic solution, helping everyone build whatever business they are in.)

Here is a free training video on MLSP. If you want help with building your business, you need to go here and watch how MLSP is the pain reliever for your pain. Any frustration you have had up to now is not your fault. No one has taught you how to succeed.

MLSP is teaching you how to make progress and profits, now.

Lead Generation Process

Leads Are The Name of the Game

Leads are the name of the game for building any kind of business offline and online; having a good lead generation process is crucial to the eventual success of your business. Even your local supermarket spends effort, time and money generating leads. Those sale papers are not afterthought.

Not all leads are equal and not all lead generation processes are equal, or even effective. A sub-standard lead can cost a lot more than it seems at first impression. Time is a limited, one way investment that you will spend no matter what.

Bad leads are a bad investment.

Lead Generation Means ‘QUALIFIED’ Leads

If leads have not been qualified in the promotional process you are wasting your time. You will spend your time working with folks who are uninterested and most likely cannot remember why you are contacting them.

Lead Generation Requires Work; It Requires Correct Work

Offline it requires you setting up meetings and driving to those folks, calling them, and often wondering why in the heck did they commit to a meeting if they did not want to come.

They may delay you by saying, “Can you send me some information on it?” or that golden oldie I always love, “I will think about it.”

You can but they probably won’t.

If you are in a hurry, you probably don’t have time to do the marketing process many companies engage in such as collecting information from prospects at trade shows, sending them information, pre-qualifying them and so on.

You need a method of generating leads who are looking for what you are offering, for whom you have a solution to their problem, an end to their pain.

Step Back and Understand the Lead Process

If what you are doing is not working, come to grips with the idea that you don’t understand the process. Understand that this is a critical issue that must be resolved in order to move forward.

Online generation is deceptively simple looking. Mainly, because you are struggling to be seen and heard in a web of pages dominated by Google and folks who understand SEO, SAO and how to get backlinks.

Purchasing Leads

Yes, you can do that, but doesn’t it make more sense to be presenting information and help in such a way that they seek you out for free? When you create content and put it up on a blog it works for you from then on. If you are buying clicks, once those clicks are done, you are done and they are gone. Hopefully, they will buy but if they do not, then you have accomplished nothing.

Obviously, this is the downside. I am not entirely against buying clicks I just know many people who are trying to get started do not have the budget to buy traffic. Once you do get started, buying focused, targeted traffic is a great way to accelerate your business. Doing it when you have to choose one bill to pay over another to get started is maybe not such a good idea. The cool thing is there are ways to get a blog hosted pretty much for free or less than a $10 spot a month and get going now.

A Lead Generation Process That Works

You need a lead generation process that provides you a what to do, when to do it, what to sell, and to whom to sell it kind of set up. Do you have any up front training that is free for your prospective customer or distributor to go so they can get a feel for you and what you offer? Do you have a mechanism whereby you can make money on 90% of the folks who say ‘no’ to your network marketing business?A system that is always updated so as to keep up with changing times and effective strategies?

You do now. Go here now and check out the training we use here at Earthtiger Networking.

Best Attraction Marketing Secret

Attraction Marketing

Early in the spring my sweetie and I took some time at Orange Beach, AL
Early in the spring my sweetie and I took some time at Orange Beach, AL

The attraction marketing system turns marketing on its head. Its record of producing 6 and 7 figure income earners is unequaled.

Before if you wanted to sell you had to go out and find people to sell to, cold calling, door knocking, dialing. Worse, you hung out in bookstores hoping to run into someone to whom to talk.

Generally, this means no sales, no new distributors to make sales, no paycheck.

Attraction Marketing’s Basic Foundation

Attraction Marketing’s basic tenet: People should need what you are selling and search you out.

I will say it again, the attraction system is founded upon the principle that instead of going and finding folks to sell to, people should need what you are selling and search you out.

Attraction Marketing Is Efficient

This is perfect for anyone in the network marketing business; it increases the efficiency of your marketing time and efforts.

Who is more likely to spend money? Your cousin you have not seen in 5 years or someone who saw your blog message and said to themselves you know what I am going through and have solved my problem?

Cutting time you spend chasing new business increases time you are spending promoting your products; attracting folks to you.

Awesomely cool is people you attract will not just buy your products; in many cases they will also be joining your network marketing business.

Old School Strategies Ignore Human Nature

Old school strategies ignore the fact that people love to buy and dearly, coldly hate to be sold.

People buy from people. Attraction marketing is reliant on the idea that the best testimonial for what you are selling is you.

  1. How is your demeanor?
  2. How is your energy level?
  3. What are your expectations for the future?

When making a video for posting on YouTube1, and you should, you surely should, how is your demeanor? Do you look fresh, excited about your business? Happy to be where you are doing what you are doing?

Are you an Energetic Eddie or an Enervating Eeyore? Which is to say are really excited or just excited to get it over with and check it off? Whatever, act like it is the first.

What is your own belief level?

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”
― Henry Ford

Ford said it all.

A Few Bullets On Attraction Marketing

  • You are reading, so I know Attraction Marketing works. So, I am teaching it to you.
  • When you use it and folks start coming to you, you know it works, so teach it to them.

Duplication at its finest.

Attraction Marketing Means People Buy From You

In a very real sense, you want to become your brand. Ideally, people see you as their solution.

Quit Selling

Don’t throw tons of facts. I have been guilty of throwing tons of facts and figures at folks, overwhelming with what I (thought) I knew giving them no where to retreat, a losing plan.

People don’t care about all this stuff. People want to know:

  • What your product can do
  • Even more so, they want to know what your products have done for you.2
  • That you really care whether they succeed…and you do, you surely do.
  • People buy from folks they like; be likeable.

Offer to cure their pain, make them understand their past failures are not their fault. No one gave them more instructions than a green high school coach saying, “Get out there and go for it! You can do it!”

You are a winner even if you have not got your game plan just right. Deciding to cowboy up and step into the arena is what makes you a winner. You want to be successful, respected and a leader…and you are going to be so.

It just requires a mindset change.

What You Need To Do Now

Instead of trying to figure out a solution, you can save time and use an already proven system such as the Mastery Program that Earthtiger Networking uses.

I want you to go here and learn how this system works, now, before you do anything else.

It is time for your hopes and dreams to start happening; it is time for you to succeed.
