It happens all the time…
You started affiliate marketing with high hopes of striking it rich. But you discover that the journey has its challenges. Sure it does.
If you had the opportunity to complain to a super affiliate, you’ll ultimately lash out your dissatisfaction.
Get this: affiliate marketing is still the easiest way to start an online venture. It doesn’t matter what niche you choose or expertise you have or lack, promoting other people’s products can help you generate extra income. It has been a game changer for hundreds of my students.
In this article, I’ll show you how to triple your affiliate income in as little as 15 days.
Let me give you an idea: If you’re currently making $100 per month, the tricks that I’ll reveal here will multiply that income 3x so that instead of $100, you earn $300 or more.
This is not a guarantee. Because there is work to be done. As long as you’re daring, and will follow the 4 steps below, you’ll most assuredly triple your commission.
Let’s get started:
1. First step: Choose high-paying affiliate offers
There is no better place to start other than your selection of affiliate offers. Truly, affiliate marketing in certain industries (e.g., internet marketing, health, games) tend to be competitive because thousands if not millions of other affiliates want to make money, too.
To find these high paying affiliate programs irrespective of the industry, you can use Offervault.com.
You can increase your chances of making more money by choosing high-paying affiliate offers. Instead of promoting an offer that pays $20, promote an offer that pays out $200 per lead or sale.
That way, your efforts will not be in vain. And you’ll never be frustrated when the odds are against you.
Surprisingly, it doesn’t take much effort or resources to promote a $200 offer. It’s basically the same effort you put into a $10 – $50 offer.
As an affiliate marketer, you want to earn more money with less efforts.
If you want to make $2,000 per month, you’re only required to sell a $200 offer to 10 customers. Sadly, if the commission is a meager $20, you’ll have to sell to 100 customers.
Tell me, which is easier…?
- To attract 10 customers or
- to attract 100 customers?
Honestly, attracting 10 customers per month is easier.
2. Second step: Capture leads early
Don’t wait until everything is perfect. Start building your email list right now.
When I started marketing online, one of the phrases that kept me motivated at all times was, “the money is in the list.”
And it’s true!
Without a list of motivated prospects, your online business will suffer. As an affiliate marketer, I learned from Ewen Chia, a super affiliate the importance of building an email list.
In fact, an exclusive study found that for every $1 invested into your list, you can earn up to $39.40 in return.
Ewen Chia and several other digital marketers recommend that instead of sending potential customers to the sales page, you should offer them a free ebook or software in exchange for their email address.
If you truly want to triple your affiliate income, you can’t afford to take list building lightly. It’s the lifeblood of your sales engine. Capture leads early, and build a relationship with them.
There are so many ways to build an email list. And several tools too, such as:
When you choose any of the popup list builder tool above, you’ll need a lead magnet (a valuable product to give away for free in exchange for a person’s email address).
You can collate your best posts into an ebook, or repurpose user generated content you already have to create your lead magnet or to retain old customers.
3. Third step: Follow up and ask for feedback
I would like to paraphrase…- “the money is in the list.”
In reality, the money is not in the list, but in the relationship you’ve built with your email subscribers.
It’s important to understand that email subscribers are human beings. They have blood gushing through their veins.
Here’s the truth: Email subscribers don’t want to be pitched or sold to. But they want to connect, share, and communicate with you.
When people join your email list, follow up on them. Create series of custom email letters that will be delivered to them at intervals (e.g., every 2 days). Use this as an opportunity to educate, information, and motivate your subscribers.
Then ask for their feedback. Give a listening ear to their questions. Understand them and provide useful and easy-to-implement answers. More important, recommend your affiliate offer as the complete solution to their questions.
Of course, the affiliate product or program has to be relevant to the questions before you can recommend the offer.
When you build good relationship with your email subscribers, they’ll be more than willing to buy from you anytime you show them what works.
As an example, Bryan Harris, founder of VideoFruit.com generated over $2,000 within 24 hours. He sold 64 copies of an ebook with a single email broadcast. This happened because his email subscribers trust him – and would do anything to keep the friendship waxing stronger.
4. Fourth step: Write unbiased reviews
When it comes to affiliate marketing, you have to be careful the perception prospects and customers have about you.
If they see you as someone who cares about money and exploiting people, no matter how genuine you think you’re, you’ll struggle to double, let alone triple your income.
But you can change how they see you by writing unbiased product reviews.
Online reviews are powerful reputation booster. According to Bright Local, “30% of customers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations.”
To these set of people, there is no difference between the news (whether good or bad) they heard about a particular product from their friend, and an honest review they read somewhere online. They’re both the same.
This sounds like a huge relief for affiliate marketers. Because it tells us that instead of using hype and marketing gimmicks to sell people a particular offer, we can increase their confidence and willingness to buy by writing unbiased reviews.
An unbiased review is simple: it showcases the good aspect of an offer as well as the poor aspects. When it appears too-good-to-be-true, then it’s questionable.
When writing such a review, don’t make the mistake of asking people to buy. You should stand on the gap – and pre-sell the product in an honest manner. If they’re persuaded, they’ll buy.
Funny enough, I have found that each time you reveal the poor aspects of an affiliate product during a review, the sales conversion increases. Maybe you should try it.
The first money I ever made as an affiliate marketer came from a product review which I published on my blog.
The moment you crack that code and make the first sale, the engine will be switched on and you can soar higher in your earnings.
Follow this definitive guide to affiliate marketing as outlined on this post and you’ll never struggle to make a living promoting other people’s products. It’s a promise.
It doesn’t matter your niche, there is still enough room at the top to become a super affiliate. It’s a choice.
You can choose to double, triple, or take your affiliate earnings to the roof by working hard and learning along the way. Nobody and nothing is formidable enough to stop you. Not even the competition.
