Two things are surprising about the technique I’m about to teach you for selling affiliate products:
First, it’s surprisingly easy. In fact, it’s so simple you might be tempted to dismiss it. Don’t. This method has been proven effective and it’s one you definitely want to put in your marketing arsenal.
Second, while it doesn’t take much time, it can be a real money maker. In fact, if you choose an affiliate product that pays instantly and if you have a traffic source (such as your own list, social media, etc) then you can potentially put money in your pocket in less than 3 hours.
Here’s how it works: Choose an affiliate product you like. It needs to be one that you have, one that you can get from the seller for free, or one you buy. Regardless, you must have a copy of it yourself. Also, it’s better if it’s a product you personally like and use, although that’s not required.
Read the sales letter carefully and choose the biggest benefit. This might be in the headline or it could be in the bullet points.
Write a short report – 5 pages is fine, 10 pages is super and you don’t want to go any longer than that. In the report, detail how to do this one technique that you’ve pulled out of the product that provides this benefit. For example, how to get 10,000 visitors a month to your blog would be a good benefit.
If you don’t want to write the report, outsource it.
Create a squeeze page and use this big benefit as your title. “How To Get 10,000 Visitors a Month To Your Blog.”
Once they enter their email address and press the opt-in button, they are redirected to your affiliate page for the product. Not many will buy at this point, but it’s important that they see the page.
At the end of the report, send them back to that affiliate sales page. You might write something like this:
“I hope you put this into action, but if you’d like to take a massive shortcut and reduce the time it takes to get 10,000 visitors a month to your website, then click here to get the complete fast-track system.”
Use your own wording. Your message is that what you just taught them works, but to do it quickly without the trial and error and mistakes, they can simply get the fast track system because it’s so much easier and faster.
Plus they get tons of other benefits, too. Etc.
So what you’re doing here is building a list, giving them real value and then immediately marketing to that list the exact benefit they’re looking for.
Plus of course you can follow up with those that don’t initially buy, plus you can also market other products to them in the future.
Once you get good at this, it shouldn’t take you more than 3 hours to set up and you can use your system for as long as you like.
Send website visitors to it, tell your lists, offer your free report on social media, buy ads, etc.
Does it sound too easy?
Often times it’s the simple techniques that create the biggest results. Making a couple of thousand dollars on each one of these systems that you set up is not unheard of. And depending on how much traffic you send and the product you choose, it could be even more.
And if you like, you can outsource the entire thing for a reasonable fee.
Imagine if you just set one of these up a week.
It might not be glamorous, but you can’t argue with the results!
