In today's blog post I'm sharing all about affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing has helped me to increase my income and continue to live the freedom lifestyle. You too, can maximize your income through affiliate marketing!
Network marketing found me 4 years ago and I began making a residual income from home! I’m not talking about a $200 check here and there.
I’m talking 7 figures…
But I knew I wanted more.
In 2016, I found a business that I’m still with called Elite Marketing Pro and they asked me to create a product for their company.
I created a course and started promoting it to my audience in December of that year and YOU GUYS…
All I did was show up!
I started talking to my audience about this course and made $23,000 that month. And the month after that…and the month after that. In a year, I made multiple 6 figures with this company, pretty damn amazing!
Being the middle man is why I love it! You can make exceptional money through a lower price company and choose which mentorship level you want to be at.
Right now you see these influencers and even REGULAR people promoting affiliate products because they enjoy being the person pointing the finger!
Here Are 7 Tips to Look For When Deciding On What Affiliate Program to Jump Into:
👉 1) Choose A Niche:
When deciding which program is best for YOU…make sure you choose something that aligns. Personally, I typically stick with the digital products, but there are SO MANY…from travel, beauty, finance, and clothing…you name it, just make sure to choose something you are interested in and fits in your life.
For me, it makes sense to go with online marketing, branding, sales, etc. because that is the space I am in. I look for offers that make sense for MY audience, pricing, margins, etc. and that’s exactly what you should do too.
👉3) Business Blend:
A lot of bloggers will go the affiliate route, promoting things, inserting links into their posts to drive traffic. Just like I’ve mentioned above, focus on YOUR customers/audience and what would work the best for them. If you have a lucrative blog, affiliate marketing can be an incredible income stream.
👉4) Low vs. High Ticket:
With I first joined Elite Marketing Pro, I would hop on and do a Facebook Live and at the end talk about a $27 e-book, send the link to those that were interested and people would click the link, buy the book and automatically be connected to me through affiliate link. If they wanted to move up into mentorship, that’s where I would see commissions adding up…I didn’t even know who some of these people were. I was making $1500 here and there and all I did was a Facebook Live, post a blog, or send out an email to my list….that was a low ticket item. Now I focus on high ticket where you can scale faster. Would you rather sell 1000 $27 products? Or 20 $1000 products?
TIP: ALWAYS ask when you will get paid your commission.
👉5) No Hidden Agendas:
Ask the people helping you if you are going to be sold something else! Some times you think are you coming in at $3k price point, but you’re not getting the full picture. You may end up having to spend $10-$15k BEFORE you get to that point, so remember to ask this question when looking at affiliate marketing.
Learning and navigating the online digital world can be OVERWHELMING! I have built over 87 funnels and offer this to my audience because they are a pain in the ass and people don’t want to learn how to build them! What I love about affiliate marketing is that some programs already have premade funnels to use! (SCORE!)
👉6) Brand Building:
Building trust with your audience is so important!! You want to offer value, teach, and share what you learn. Even if you weren’t the one who created the course or product, they look at you as the person giving value.
👉7) Look For Premade Systems:
Try to find programs to join that send you a link to premade system so you don’t have to do ALL the things. It’s so much easier when the process has already been set up…unless you want to get into building a full presentation, landing pages, email sequences, etc. then choose that route!!
I don’t like to just jump in…
For the last 6 months, I’ve been doing my own research, trying to find an Affiliate Program that I felt aligned with me and my business and I FINALLY found one that I’m SO excited about!
This program offers an additional income stream without pulling me away from my aligned Network Marketing business and you DO NOT have to create all the stuff like we talked about above…it’s already put together, allowing you to leverage your time wisely.
I hope you found value in today's episode…I'd like to share a way to help you create $1k days in an affiliate program that I recently have had success with!
