This Will Take Affiliate Marketing To The Next Level!

Hi there,

Here’s an interesting blog post for you..

When videos started to grow popular on the Internet in
the past couple of years, the Internet Marketing
landscape started to change.

Affiliate Marketing was not exempted, either.

The most classic mistake people tend to make in
affiliate marketing is not capturing the opt-in leads
first before sending their visitors to the merchant’s
website.

So what smart marketers often do is that they would
have their own Squeeze Page for the visitors to opt
into their list, before sending them to the website
they are an affiliate for.

This is so the affiliate marketer can build his own
opt-in list and do his follow-ups later.

A few but exceptionally smarter marketers, on the other
hand, take this to the next level.

=====> THEY IMPLEMENT VIDEO MARKETING, TOO.

You probably notice most top Internet Marketing experts
are now using videos on their Squeeze Pages. And
smarter affiliates are also doing the same for their
own, for one obvious reason:

=====> VIDEOS CAN SKYROCKET YOUR TRAFFIC AND SALES
CONVERSIONS!

Unfortunately, the problem with video marketing is that
to begin with, you have to know how to make your own
videos.

And even if you could do your own videos, what if you
learn that the affiliate program doesn’t convert well
for you after all?

Affiliate Power Videos remove all these barriers.

=> More info.
At Affiliate Power Videos, you get 10 unique, high
converting Video Squeeze Pages, and 5 new ones every
month.

So all you have to do is:

Step 1: join any or all of the listed affiliate
programs (free)

Step 2: Upload the video and squeeze pages to your web
host

Step 3: Start driving in traffic, build your opt-in
list and rake in affiliate sales!

You might be thinking that this is going to be a costly
monthly membership – maybe $97, $197 or even $297 a
month.

You’re going to be in for a pleasant surprise — this
one’s on the house (read: zero cost)!

Here it is again:

The 7 Critical Steps In Building Your Email List

If you want to cut through the noise, hype and b.s.
and really understand how you get money deposited
into your bank account automatically, and if you
want to avoid screw ups that will cost you an arm
and a leg, I recommend you read this article.

There’s something in it for newbies and ALSO
intermediate and even advanced marketers.

Are your autoresponders in order?

If you’re a newbie, an autoresponder is a way to
send out a sequence of emails automatically.

It is the lifeblood of this business.

If you’ve read the 4-hour work week, you know he talks
about taking “mini-retirements” where you get away
from it all for 1-3 months.

Without autoresponders, that isn’t likely to happen.
But if you have your autoresponder ducks in a row,
absolutely you can walk away and have bank deposits
coming in daily.

The autoresponders do all the work for you, so you
can go hang out on the beach or do whatever it is you
want to do.

Here are the basic steps to make automated bank
deposits:

1. Find your target market

2. Offer freebies to get ’em on your email list

3. Send out emails that offer content and also
promote your own products or affiliate products.

4. Cash the checks

Now, in order to make that happen, your autoresponder
house has to be in order. Here are the 7 steps to
make it happen.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Step one: Split test a wide number of name squeeze
pages.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

We call pages that get people to fork over their name
and email address in exchange for a freebie a name
squeeze page.

Now, the current “in vogue” thing is to ask for an
email only. My friend Ryan Deiss is largely responsible
for starting this trend.

And he’s right. Yet, I know of squeeze pages that get
65% of traffic (that is, visitors) sent by affiliates
to join the email list.

And the page asks for first and last name. And the form
is below the fold of the computer screen, meaning you
have to scroll down the page to find it.

This runs counter to current wisdom.

And it’s EXACTLY why you do what we call split testing.
I’ll have to write another issue on how you do that with
the minimum hassle. I’m right now changing up how I do
it in my business to make it simple enough that my virtual
assistants and outsourcers can do it.

When you split test, you try one thing vs. another and see
which one works best. It’s how you improve your results.

In the past, I’ve been using Split Test Accelerator. But
honestly, I don’t take the time to do what’s called pure
“Taguchi testing.” So I’m going to simplify and use a
very easy to use program that just rotates pages.

This will make it easier for my outourcers to do the work.
If you’re out of the loop, I used the system at:
http://www.outsourceplan.com to hire a filipina who is
doing a lot of our webmaster work for us.

If you’re a newbie, don’t worry about this stuff. You’ll
learn it from me as you go along. Or join my Ateam and
get a really fast baptism in it!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Step two: Your thank you for opting page is critical.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If you’re intermediate or advanced, this is where you
have room for improvement.

I am split testing several pages to get people to click
the confirmation link in their email.

The balance is you want them to click that link but you
do NOT want to detract from your sales letter page.

One thing I’m going to try is a method innovated by
Eben Pagan originally. You promise them some info
and then take them to a short page that delivers the
info. Then you take them to the sales page.

But to me, that leaves little incentive for them to
click the confirmation link sent by email, since you
just gave them the info you promised.

Still, these are the kinds of things you take 10 min.
to throw up a split test on and see what happens.

Here are things I’m testing:

a. Video where I walk on the thank you page and
TELL them to go check their email.

ADVANCED TIP: You need a good webmaster. But the
video where I walk on the page continues to perform
great for me.

b. A screen capture video where I visually walk them
through hunting down my confirm link and clicking it,
then encouraging them to go back to my sales letter.

c. A pure screen cap showing them what the email link
I sent looks like.

d. A giant red back arrow telling them to click back
to the sales letter.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Step three: Make sure you don’t muck up your
tracking codes
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I’m guilty of this one.

The program I use to track clicks, actions and sales
requires that you put a little snippet of code on the
outcome page so it can track the action.

When the page loads, it tells the program to COUNT
that as a result or outcome.

Well, the code I have there is totally outdated on
some pages. I forgot to update it.

If your tracking codes are messed up, everything is
messed up.

Again, if you’re a newbie, don’t worry about this.
It’s actually NOT hard to set these things up if you
have someone SHOW you with a video or screen cap HOW
to do it, just like I do in my line of Dashboard
products.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Step four: Create a CUSTOM confirmation message
and make sure you try different ones and track the
results
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Most autoresponder programs let you customize the
email you send to get people to confirm their email
address.

Pay attention to this and take time to customize
the subject line and the message.

Maybe in another ezine article or on an Ateam call
I’ll have time to delve into what I’m split testing
and the results.

Do NOT use the default messages.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Step five: Add a post confirmation URL
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After they click the link you send them via email,
you can send them to any page you want.

This needs to be a SALES pitch, one time offer,
special discount, irresistible offer — something
that asks for money.

You KNOW you have their attention and you may
never have it again. So bring out your big guns.
You know, make the best offer you can.

ADVANCED TIP: Use a tracking link for your
confirmation URL, so you can split test different
confirmation pages.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Step six: Watch out for “forbidden words”
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You want to keep a close eye on all your numbers
because these are your lifeblood.

I found out that one of the reasons my confirmation
rate wasn’t as good as I wanted recently is that
the rules about email filters had changed and I was
using a “forbidden” word in my email confirmation.

I can’t even print the word here or you wouldn’t
get this email.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Step seven: Measure everything vs. sales
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Nothing is in isolation.

So if you have 1,000 people join your email list but
only 15 confirm their subscription, that isn’t so
hot.

If you have 1,000 people join your email list but
you do that to the detriment of people reading your
sales letter and buying, that isn’t great either.

The bottom line is sales.

But the number of people you’re adding to your list
and how you cultivate them by email is a leading indicator
of what your future sales WILL be.

Nothing exists in isolation.

NEWBIE TIPS

If you’re brand new, then what you want to do is just
get started with something simple and basic.

Then you follow the rule of cani — constant and never
ending improvement.

But you can’t improve on what you don’t have.

So get something simple and easy up and running. Just
get a subscription form of any kind THERE.

Then improve on it.

I suggest you work on these things daily, even if it’s
only for 10 minutes. Just by doing little tweaks every
day, you’ll improve over time.

Make money in 15 minutes!?

Never has there been a time when someone sits down and
shows you step by step blueprints to make real money
on the internet. Furthermore, no one in the right frame
of mind will show you a way to do it WITHOUT spending a
single penny on advertising.

You see, the Internet is huge and millions come online
to have a crack at it. Majority (99.9%) just don’t have
a clue where to start. They attempt some techniques
exposed by well known internet marketing gurus, but
never really make some serious money.

Well the thing is, the owner of Google Snatch is NOT
a guru. Simple down to earth guy who just knows what to
do to make money online! Best of all are the techniques
he uses to dominate not only a niche market but also
markets that have thousands of competitors owned and
run by large corporations.

He implements his own techniques and actually, in one
word, hammers his competition. No Google Adwords to cheat,
as each click costs an expensive $100. As at the end of
the day, the bigger the market, the bigger the competition,
so more spending power!

Now millions are afraid to compete in big markets because
the people (companies) who have the money CAN demolish
their competitors. But what he tells you is, BIG companies
have more money than sense. There is no need to spend
thousands of dollars to make money online. If you have
the right formula, (The FREE Click Formula) then why waste
money on paid clicks.

The problem with paid advertising, whether its Google,
Yahoo or MSN, you can get high placements almost instantly,
but whose clicking on your ads? I mean whose accumulating
a large bill at the end of the month for you?
Your competitors? Happy clickers? Or actual ‘real’ customers?

The work involved is just as much as setting up a Google
Adwords campaign. Since the Google Slap came to the scene,
it was made clear that for each keyword you bid on it
requires a unique page, as a must, to achieve good popularity
ranking.

So the idea is simple, yet thousands think, actually
MILLIONS think, Adwords is quicker? It takes 15 minutes
for the world to see your listing! But in order to get
to those 15 minutes, it takes the same time to find the
keywords, create the landing page and to get the campaign
on its feet. Overall you could say it takes maybe 60 – 90
minutes, maybe more.

Once this is setup, people will actually start seeing your
ads AFTER 90 minutes as the work needs to be done beforehand.

Now for the alternative, inside Google Snatch! It takes 60
minutes for the world to see your ad, PLUS you don’t pay
a single cent on a click. Yet to that matter never will
you ever again pay for a click once you discovered these
techniques. So this you could say is the REAL get your
Google ads for free!

It was suppose to be priced at $997, but at present it’s
next to NOTHING! So go over to the website now before
your competitors use this method on you.

Never pay for Google ads ever again and let the world
see your site within 60 minutes!

To your success,

The REAL SECRET To Consistent Commission Checks

By Jimmy D. Brown of “Affiliatenaire”

…………………….

It’s important that you understand something about affiliate
marketing from the very beginning –

Earning affiliate income isn’t easy
for the average person.

Let’s face it, there are 50 gazillion other people out there
doing the exact same thing you are doing – if you could remember
what it is that you are doing. :)

So, that’s what I want to address. Here’s the mindset that I
want you to remember: there are only so many customers out there.
And each affiliate in the program is doing basically the same
thing to try to reach them.

That’s why you are going to be different. Got it?

Before I jump into what I consider to be the “real secret” to
earning commissions with affiliate programs, let me share with
you a basic concept that is going to be important to what you
are going to learn today.

Here is how the average affiliate approaches promoting their
affiliate link…

A) Send out a mailing. Purchase ezine ads. Get a few
pay-per-click keywords. Post a few links. Make a small
profit. Get discouraged. Move on to the next affiliate
program.

Or, if they are slightly more aggressive…

B) Send out a mailing. Purchase ezine ads. Get a few
pay-per-click keywords. Post a few links. Write a few articles.
Create an eBook. Do a joint venture. Swap ads. And they
continue promoting that same affiliate program until they
(along with a few other aggressive affiliates) have found
every potential customer on the face of the earth. Make
a decent profit. Where do I go now? Move on to the next
affiliate program.

While I certainly agree that the “slightly more aggressive”
affiliate is on the right trail with their approach, it still
leaves a common problem that all affiliates have…

Finding NEW customers.

You make an affiliate sale. Great. You make another one.
Great. You keep working and working and working to make
another sale and another sale and another sale. Now, remember,
there are a gazillion others out there trying to do the same
thing. And, even if all of these other affiliates only make
one or two sales each…

..that’s a LOT of customers that you WON’T be selling to!

For example: If there are 10,000 affiliates promoting
Product A and they all, on average, sell just 2 copies
each, that’s 20,000 customers that are immediately
unavailable for you to sell to.

Doesn’t matter how hard you promote and how much you do, you
WILL NOT sell them a second copy of something they have
already bought. Even if they love it. They won’t buy
another copy.

So, here’s the “real secret.” While everyone is promoting
the heck out of all of the same programs you are, you need
to refine who it is that you are promoting.

***Bottom line: Start FOCUSING on those affiliate programs
that offer MONTHLY commissions.

Here’s why. Let’s say you promote an absolutely awesome
product by Mr. Guru that sells for $29.97. And Mr. Guru gives
you 50% commission. By the time all of the processing fees
are out of the way, you earn about $14.00 for a new customer.

And you’re done with that customer — it’s time to move on
and find the next guy.

HOWEVER, if you promote an affiliate program that pays
MONTHLY, let’s say a membership site, then here’s what you
would find happens…

The membership site is $27.00 PER MONTH. You earn $13.50 per
MONTH for every referral you make for as LONG AS THEY REMAIN
ACTIVE!

With the $29.97 product, you earn $14.00 for all of your efforts
in finding a customer. One time commission. That’s it. Time
to find another customer. With the MONTHLY service, you earn
about the same commission for that same customer. Then, next
month you earn that commission over again! Month after that,
you’re still earning that same commission from that same customer.
For each and every month that the customer continues to use
the service you continue to bring in the commission without
finding a new customer.

Do you see the potential here?

It makes much more sense to focus on promoting affiliate
programs that bill monthly and pay commissions monthly. That
way, you continue to earn profits from the…

Same customer base!

If I am going to buy ads and purchase pay-per-click keywords
and create eBooks and bust my behind to get those customers,
I’d sure rather get paid every month (without doing a bit of
extra work, mind you!) that to only earn a one-time commission.

—————-Side Bar ——————-
While this isn’t as good as MONTHLY income, choosing an
affiliate program that offers you LIFETIME customers is the
next best thing. For example: With some programs when you
recruit a customer , they are yours for life. If they
purchase future product releases, then YOU receive the
commission as the original referrer. It’s a good second
option, but it’s not as good as getting paid monthly!
————————————————

So, what should you promote? Your eyes have been opened.
You’ve seen the light. You realize that what you’ve just
read does make sense. And you want to get paid monthly!

So, what should you promote? While you definitely need
to check things out yourself and make that determination
on your own, let me give you a short list of TYPES of offers
that you can promote that bill monthly and award monthly
commission checks.

* PLR AND RESALE RIGHTS CLUBS

* MEMBERSHIP SITES

* WEB HOSTING

* AUTORESPONDERS AND LIST MANAGEMENT TOOLS

* COACHING CLUBS

* PAID NEWSLETTERS

* SERVICES (AD TRACKING, LEGAL DOCS, MANAGEMENT, ETC.)

The important thing is for you to identify at least one
really good affiliate program that offers residual income
possibilities for you.

Once you find the right program to promote, it’s a matter
of getting as many different people to click on your link
as possible. How would you like to have someone teach
you ONE simple way to promote your affiliate links every
week? Read on for details…
