How To Make Money In Affiliate Marketing

How to make money online as an affiliate marketing beginner? Now if you’re reading this article, I’m sure maybe you’ve read some books on how to make money online or you’ve watched some YouTube videos or seen some Facebook posts from some other people or maybe you’ve attended a webinar or something like that but the real question is, how can you earn a living make money online?

This is something that I’ve been researching for years and I’ve been able to make hundreds of thousands of dollars online in the last few years.I don’t have anybody working for me with with no inventory with no clients, I don’t have to hop on calls I don’t have to go to any office or work with anything else other than a computer. Now there’s a real way to make serious money online.

Let me ask you a question, are you going to continue buying things on the internet? Think about it, are people going to continue buying things on the internet?

Of course!

Every day more and more people are not only getting online but people prefer to shop on the Internet rather than going into stores and having to deal with driving and parking and all this other stuff when you can just purchase online.

 
 
The trick is to get in between people’s purchases and the stuff they’re purchasing if you can find a way to be in the middle between purchases that are already happening. You can make a lot of money online, but there’s only a few things that you need to make money and you really just need an audience of people to reach on the internet and you need a product that people will pay money for.

That’s all you need.

And once you have an audience of people on the internet and there’s very easy ways to do this and I’ll talk about this more in a second here but you can insert yourself in the middle and make massive amounts of money like I have online.

And you don’t need to be the person that owns the product you don’t need to be making client calls, you don’t need to be showing up at an office or managing people and all these sorts of old-world ways of doing business.

All you need to do is get in between stuff that people are already buying online and insert yourself in between these and the money will flow. That’s what I’ve been able to do I’ve been able to make hundreds of thousands of dollars online and Before I explain my my system for doing so which is very simple in a second.

I think it’s good to give you some context of how I came into this industry. So, I don’t know how many people here have read the book the 4-hour workweek,but I read this book back in 2009 called the 4-hour workweek and it talks about how you can have freedom and time by starting an Internet business online.

The fact is, as long as you can make money online you can be anywhere you want in the world and you could do it anytime you want because the internet doesn’t care when you work and I said this sounds great because my passion in life has been to have more quality time with my family.

I didn’t figure it out immediately though. I figured it took me four years to the 4-hour workweek took me, you know, four years of just failure and I’ve taken a million courses online trying to figure out what is an easy way to get started.

My goal was the freedom to travel and do things on my own terms and I knew to get that freedom, I had to learn how to make money online to figure out how to use the internet computers and insert myself in the middle here.

The best way to make money online is what I call affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is when you can insert yourself in between what people are already looking for on search engines and through special interests.

People are using Google, Instagram, Facebook,and YouTube and a host of other social media platforms every single day using all of these places to advertise their affiliate product.

This is how people find what they’re looking for Amazon, etc now it’s very easy to get in between them and their purchase and make tons of money purely by working from the internet now.

How I added THOUSANDS to my monthly income by fighting against an accepted marketing law

Is Pareto’s Law putting your business in danger?

You’ve probably heard of Pareto’s law. It states that around 20% of the work you do produces 80% of the results.

So, for example, you may find in your business that 20% of the things you do bring in 80% of the money.

In the past, there’s been a fair old measure of truth in that for my business.

Years ago 20% of the things I did (mainly maintaining my continuity programs) brought in 80% of my income.

Maybe you’re in the same boat?

Do you have a list and find that writing and emailing promos brings in 80% of your income but takes only 20% of your time?

Or perhaps you have 10 AdSense sites but find that just 2 of them bring in 80% of the money?

Either way, it’s an interesting law.

But I’ve changed my mind about the widespread acceptance of Pareto’s Law among internet marketers and I think it should be given a little more thought.

Yes, I know the guy was probably a genius and I’m just some scruffy git living in Yorkshire but everyone can have an opinion right?

It’s CRAZY that most of your income should come from a relatively small percentage of what you do.

Google can wipe out businesses overnight by changing its SEO algorithms and if your pasta is all on one basket (Pareto was Italian) then you can lose it all in one go.

Now hang on because I KNOW that isn’t what Pareto actually meant.

He meant that despite your best efforts you find that only 20% of your hard work yields results.

But I still think it needs investigating and experimenting with if you want your business to be safe.

So here’s what I’ve done…

A while back I put together a pie chart of where my income comes from.

It’s a very interesting exercise and I suggest you do this just to see how your business makes money even if it’s not much

And I found my income mostly comes from the things below (in no particular order) email marketing, continuity, software, coaching, CPA, offline marketing, middleman ventures, selling my own products, passive income from blog and Adsense sites, apps and PLR

…and bits of other stuff here and there

And when I pie charted it out I could see that Pareto’s Law DIDN’T apply to my business any longer

But that’s only because I implemented the technique I’m about to share with you:

What I did was simple.

It was to concentrate my marketing efforts on the income streams that weren’t performing as well as the main ones, and to bring their level of income into line.

Simple yes?

Before I did this I ended up with three main things bringing in the bulk of my income.

I’ve now increased this to seven ‘main’ income streams by concentrating on the ones that performed not as well.

Obviously I made more money into the  bargain too

How so?

Well, the stupidly simple pie chart showed me where to concentrate my efforts.

It gave me focus.

I didn’t neglect the other streams on the chart – I just keep doing what I always do to keep them working – a little outsourcing, some tracking and tweaking and the usual amount of promotion, traffic driving, and advertising.

But instead of creating new products or ideas I concentrated the rest of my free time focusing on the smaller streams and getting them up to the levels of the best

performers.

Bloody Hell, what a difference!

I’m not just talking about the extra thousands it added to my bottom line (although that was very welcome)

Instead, I was gobsmacked that such a simple exercise could result in such a change.

Best of all, these ‘smaller’ streams (which are now larger)have remained on a par with the bigger ones.

More money coming in.

All because I didn’t look at my pie chart and expect to see 20% of my ventures bringing in 80% of the profit.

It’s not inevitable, and as we all know, rules are there to be broken 🙂

It’s a REALLY interesting exercise, and if you have more than one stream of income you MUST try it.

Yeah, I know the above is all very simplistic and compared to Pareto’s work and the contribution it’s barely a pimple on the arse of accepted knowledge.

But I care not a jot, because it added several grand to my bottom line, and I thought I’d share just in case it can do the same for you 😉

How I Structure The ‘Bread And Butter Part Of My Income…

For quite a while my income was shaky when I first went full-time online.

I’m not talking about the actual amount that came in – I seemed to earn at least the same as the previous month if not a little more each month.

But it felt shaky because I knew that I had to make sales every month to keep it coming, and that’s more stressful than you might think.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not as stressful as being a coal miner or an emergency room nurse, but it did have its moments

And with one baby and another on the way, I knew I needed some stability financially as quickly as possible.

Remember although it had been a while since I quit my job I was still having to make NEW sales each and every month to keep my income at this level.

And that’s hard work whatever level you’re at.

So I took a step back and looked at the whole internet marketing niche from a very common-sense viewpoint

I could see I needed to build a core income, (or ‘bread and butter’ income as I later called it) that would basically pay my bills and leave me with room to breathe and be creative to build my business.

 I had to find a way to get hundreds of people to pay me on the same date every month so I knew when and how much money I had coming in…

 …and all I would have to do was create fresh content for them each month, NOT have to make new sales, be forced to find new customers or worry about driving new traffic.

 The answer was recurring payments, continuity, subscriptions, membership sites or whatever you want to call it.

 The payment processor (I used Clickbank to start with) was already available to me so I just needed to look round to see what type of product was selling well.

 I did a few day’s research and decided I’d go into the PLR creation business!

Within a month or so I’d built a PLR membership site (I outsourced the creation of the PLR packages)…

Within 30 days my original PLR site had sold out so I built a second one, marketed it in the same way and that one sold out too!

I learned quickly that limiting the places in my PLR membership worked very well in terms of scarcity, and limited each site to 100 people initially.

IMPORTANT: I worked my arse off to sell those PLR places, using all sorts of techniques from mailing my list right through to banners, swapping ad placements, offering $1 trials to my partner’s lists and including affiliate programs to attract more JV partners.

Looking back, one of the other best things I did was to work solidly for two days tracking and collating which selling/traffic method worked the best, and for the following month put all my efforts into THOSE methods alone.

The result was that I had much more than my monthly bills covered by this continuity (around $5400 per month and that increased dramatically as I added more continuity sites) and the stress and pressure of having to make new sales every month lifted like a kid losing his grip on a helium balloon.

$5400 was TWICE the salary I’d dumped to go full-time online BTW 🙂

So that was my method.

Simple and straightforward – just add hard work and mix.

It’s easy to do the same…

Research what content or service people want and make it into a continuity site.

Work your danglies off promoting it in every way you can think of or afford and then spend a solid 48 hours tracking which methods work.

Then work your butt off AGAIN focusing on just those methods.

Finally (and this is a biggie), plug your continuity program into the back end of EVERYTHING you do.

 EVERYTHING!

If you have a sales funnel make sure it’s in there, even if it’s entirely unrelated.

Yes even with unrelated products this does work but track and test it so you know your numbers.

Make sure that every new subscriber who comes onto your list knows about your continuity and are reminded regularly about it.

Create a discount offer and place your ad on your JV partner’s thank you pages in exchange for you promoting their launches

Email your ENTIRE list when you add new content. Tell them about this months’ exciting new content and if they haven’t joined yet tell them that they should.

Make the email appealing enough to pull in new members.

By doing this you’re letting existing members know that there is new content to download but you’re also making the email into a teaser to encourage new members.

If you frame your emails this way it’s really just sales copy 🙂

  1. Q. When is the right time to launch your first continuity site?
  2. A. RIGHT NOW!

As soon as you feel you know even the basics of your internet marketing business, start working on the continuity sites that will make up your bread and butter income.

It’ll take away much of your stress, remove your reliance on having to do launches every six weeks to make money and eventually it will totally remove some of the dependence you have on JV partners and affiliates.

It’s why I don’t need to do launches and why I don’t need affiliates.

It makes you free from needing others

It makes you your own person in a business sense.

Create continuity sites – it makes a HUGE difference.

One Day Money Memberships

There are two reasons that most newbie marketers never try this:

  1. Because they think it’s somehow unethical (it isn’t)
  2. Because they’re scared. (It’s not scary, it’s easy and exhilarating

I’ve done this myself and have earned literally hundreds of thousands of dollars from it with very little initial work

I’ve mentioned it before although perhaps not this exact method.

OK here we go…

So first you get your idea for your continuity product…

Something like:

How to make money from plugins

How to build a mailing list of 100,000 subscribers

How to build your own Amazon Empire

How to start your own event promotion business

How to build a six-figure local SEO business

…or anything like that which tickles your tackle.

And then you get busy and write (or outsource) the sales page.

Then you busy and write (or record or outsource)the first lesson/’module/video or whatever delivery method you choose

The whole thing takes about ONE DAY if you get started early and work your arse off doing what I call a ‘power day’

Power day?

Well, this is when you dump all distractions and let NOTHING take your eye off the ball.

You focus 100% on getting the job done and don’t stop until it IS finished.

It’s knackering absolutely, but at the end of the day when you have the sales page ready and the first lesson in place you feel like the soap after a women’s volleyball championship 🙂

Because when you’ve got these basics in place you can launch.

You don’t need all the lessons/modules to be in place, you just need to be one lesson ahead of your subscribers.

And here’s the biggie…

AFTER you’ve launched lesson one you can gather all your subscribers into a Facebook group or forum or however you want to set it up and ASK them what they want to see next.

Sure you’ll have some kind of loose structure in mind, but by asking your members what they want to see next you’ll never be short of content ideas AND you’ll keep your refunds low and your retention rate high because they’ll never be disappointed in the content……because THEY chose it.

I’ve run continuity sites like this and the feeling of belonging your members get when you listen to them and provide what they’re asking for it totally priceless.

It makes your continuity incredibly STICKY (high retention rate) which in turn makes affiliates want to promote it.

Here’s the best bit – your original members will feedback to you on what they want to see next right?

Your job is then to stack it up into a DRIP FED course that is delivered automatically to all new subscribers.

When the course reaches its natural conclusion (as they all do) you’ll have a ready to go drip-fed membership that it 100% HANDS-FREE for you and all you have to do is pour new members in the top.

Lovely model takes about a day (initially) to set up and then you have a drip-fed, fully automated course that you just need to pour new buyers into!

Three Unspoken Reasons You Could Be Failing With Your Online Business

Obviously there are more than just three reasons why some people never quite crack it online of course…

..luck, motivation, background, even family support all play a part

But from the experience of working with numerous clients and customers I can safely say that following are three of the main reasons that can cause normal, intelligent, motivated people to fail with their online businesses:

ONE: Fear of investing money

You can’t set up an online business for free. It can’t be done.

If you’re anything like me you’ll need to find this out for yourself, of course, but if you want to save yourself two years of hard work and anguish then take the following to heart:

You need to invest in your business.

You’ll need resources, software, traffic, outsourcing, and professional help.

You won’t need it all at once of course, and if you do it correctly your business will fund itself as you go on…

…but being afraid, reluctant or unwilling to invest money in your business is most likely to be the thing that kills it off in the long run.

You wouldn’t (and couldn’t) operate without funds if you opened a high street shop or bought a franchise right?

Well there’s no difference

You need to spend money on your business.

Some things you can do for free, ALL things you can’t.

TWO: Failure to acquire the specific knowledge you need.

You don’t need to know everything but you DO need to know the right things.

You need to know the basics of selling, how to use certain bits of software or hardware, and you need to know how to put it all together…

..and if not putting it together physically yourself, then you need to know how it SHOULD fit together.

You can outsource a lot of your business, but you need to know that something exists to be able to outsource it!

You can’t work in a surfboard shop or computer shop successfully without knowing how the kit works.

You don’t have to know everything but you do have to know how to access the information you don’t have.

Likewise, if your business isn’t moving forward because you simply don’t know the technical aspects of how to do something then FIND OUT. Actively seek it out.

The knowledge won’t appear by magic one

Saturday morning when you’re at the gym and eventually it will turn into a roadblock and logjam your whole business.

Yes, you could outsource it but if it’s something you’ll be doing again and again like putting JVZoo button code onto your page or configuring a JVZoo funnel then it’s going to cost you a lot of money and time each time you need it doing.

So find out how to do it yourself.

Ask, Google, check YouTube, forums, networks, FAQ’s, support desks, friends, or whatever you need to FIND OUT the information that you need to know.

You’d be more than amazed at the number of people I hear from who are ‘stuck’ and have been for months because they say they don’t know how to do a certain thing…

..yet it only takes my support people TEN SECONDS to find a link to a YouTube video that walks them through that very information!

It’s crazy.

It’s lazy too.

If you need information find it.

You’ve got the internet. If you’d started a business 50 years ago it’d be a damn sight harder than it is now.

Research is a skill. Learn it.

THREE: Too much focus on the internet and not enough on the marketing

 Internet Marketing IS just that – selling stuff on the net.

It’s not a ‘thing’ in itself. It’s a WAY to selling something.

So it’s not a product – you’ll need one of those.

It’s not a sales letter or video – you’ll need one of those too.

Nor is it traffic. You’ll need to sort that aspect of your business out too.

Once you get that fact sorted out in your head you’ll be fine. But you need to really get it.

Took me a while to realize that pretty much  ALL the aspects of running a ‘normal’ business – from lead management through to making sales – were applicable to an internet business too

Sure, an online biz can be cheaper to set up than a shop or warehouse (all you need is a website) but when it comes to getting eyes on your product and then convincing the buggers to buy it…

…it’s just like any other form of selling.

So while it’s OK to use fancy software and platforms to make your selling easier or more effective, don’t make the mistake of thinking you’ll make money from that platform or software alone.

You won’t.

And then there’s one of MY main faults – tinkering with stuff.

There’s nothing I love more than installing a new plugin, bit of script or subscribing to a new service and spending days messing about with it.

The only problem is I’m a crap techy and I spend far too long doing something that is unproductive when I should be doing something to move my business forward.

I’ve managed to discipline myself only ever to get outsourcers to do stuff like this now, but I know people who spend their entire time online messing about with things like this and it means their business will never progress.

Focus on your business. Focus on what brings in the MONEY, NOT the internet side of things.

I know it’s much more fun installing a new blog theme or messing about with that new plugin you bought…

…but that’s NOT internet marketing, that’s just internet 🙂

And it doesn’t bring the money in.

So focus on what DOES.

$4,214 Per Month From Cheat Sheets

I love this and it’s very clever..

It works because it connects the marketer in question with his list and reinforces the ‘I care about my subscribers’ bond.

It also makes him an extra four grand a month on top of his affiliate commissions, although not in the IM niche – he’s in the health, weight loss and running niches but I

can’t see a reason it won’t transfer into any niche nicely.

Here’s how it works.

As well as selling his own products (one core product actually) in each niche he’s also an affiliate marketer.

So he promotes multiple different weight loss products, running products, exercise equipment and similar because he recognizes that just like the make money online niche, people try every method until they find what resonates with them (and even then they often keep buying)

He’s promoted successfully for a number of years and sales were fine, but here’s how he’s managed to add another $4k to his bottom line using cheat sheets in his affiliate marketing:

When he selects a product to promote as an affiliate he buys it himself (or gets a review copy) and takes the time to go through it so he knows it well.

Then (and this is the clever bit) he creates a ‘cheat sheet’ that summarises the whole product into one PDF, sometimes even including a flowchart.

In essence, he creates an ‘at a glance’ guide to the product that simplifies, outlines and gives the buyer a snapshot of what’s involved.

And then when he promotes the product he simply says that he’ll include his own personal cheat sheet in with every purchase.

Now this works on a number of levels..

The buyer knows that our affiliate must have actually read the product in order to product the cheat sheet so he knows it’s a genuine and personal recommendation not just seom throwaway ‘quick promo to his list’

The buyer also knows that the cheat sheet will be a great help in finding the parts that interest him or her, and will allow him to get an overview of what’s involved and so

the main product doesn’t seem quite so overwhelming – this also cuts down refunds.

(How many times have you bought something and then stared in dismay at the 11 videos you need to watch to find out what the product involves? The Cheat Sheet overview is a huge help in situations like this)

And finally, because our affiliate includes an offer of help in with the cheat sheet (email me if you need anything) he builds trust and rapport with his readers.

It’s working really well for him and I can’t see any reason why it wouldn’t transfer to any niche..

$14,500 a month by giving everything away except one thing!

One of my clients is ‘crushing it’ (as they say) with this method.

I have to say I love this approach and it

makes a hell of a lot more sense for this particular person than trying to sell $9 products

So this chap realized very quickly that it’s a lot easier trying to sell one product priced at $1,000 than it is to sell 112 products priced at $9 to make that same $1,000

He’s dead right too – it is.

The only snag is having the reputation and building up the trust of your list to ask for that $1,000 price tag

So here’s how we did it…

I can sum up his business model in just a few words:  

He gives everything away for free  except the high ticket stuff

So all his front-end reports are free, and interestingly, so are his upsells.

If you opt-in into one of his free WSO’s

you’ll put your name into the squeeze page as usual, and also as usual you’ll expect to be presented with an upsell or OTO and you ARE…

But that ‘upsell’ is also free!

His emails to his list aren’t affiliate emails, he only ever recommends his own products and he gives LOADS of content away with his emails.

You might think he was leaving a lot of money on the table but when you hear this next bit you’ll see why he does it.

Giving everything away for free builds trust like you wouldn’t believe …and it’s working because this is what happens next:

Every month he opens a limited number of places to work with him on a one-to-one basis at different levels.

Email coaching, personal coaching (although he actually positions it as ‘personal guidance or help’) and on average he sells $14,500 worth of personal help to his small list each month

He spends about $1500 of this income building his list each month and continues to give everything away for free except his higher ticket services which run from around $300 to $5,000 depending on the package you choose

Here’s the important thing:

He’s a relatively new marketer with no real reputation (except to his list) yet he’s using free offers – giving everything away free except his higher ticket products – to make MORE MONEY per month than marketers who are doing WSO launches every 6 weeks to get themselves started.

I think it’s a lovely model AND you’d sleep well at night knowing you were providing solid info for free.
