Can You Achieve Freedom with Part Time Affiliate Marketing?

Leveraged Affiliate Marketing

All the gurus said affiliate marketing is so easy…

Really? Now if that was true, almost everyone would be a millionaire by now. But why are there literally millions of affiliate marketers still earning $0 month after month?

The thing is, affiliate marketing is NOT as easy as most gurus make it out to be.

You can’t just pick any product or service from JVZoo, Clickbank, or Amazon and start advertising your affiliate link blindly. It doesn’t matter where you advertise — Bing, Google Adwords, Facebook, blogs or other ad networks.

Do that and you will almost always spend more than you earn in commissions every month. Unless you have very deep pockets to invest, you need to be a lot smarter about your affiliate marketing.

Over the years, I’ve tried many different affiliate marketing strategies. I still make a part-time income — mostly from affiliate marketing, and I’m on track to go full-time soon. 🙂

I have begun mixing in a few other online income strategies as well, such as product creation, but my favorite way to earn online is still mainly from affiliate marketing.

Today I’ll share some of my secrets with you.

This is one of the models of leveraged affiliate marketing that I’m building…

Yes Let Me In!

 

Secret #1: Stick to ONE niche

I see far too many affiliate marketers build a site around “ebooks” and then try to sell their ebooks via Amazon, Kindle, on all topics A-Z.

That’s a big mistake in my opinion. You need to stick to ONE niche at a time, one that you know well and love.

If your passion is woodworking then build a site around woodworking. Share your best projects. Share your worst screw-ups. Show them you’re human just like them. You can write all about it, make videos about it – however you are most comfortable sharing information.

Just don’t stray off the topic of woodworking and try to sell affiliate products in the Internet marketing niche. Your audience will lose interest and see right through your sales pitch. But if you’re showing them how to build a chair then you tell them you downloaded the plans from ABC Woodworking site, that will be really effective.

That’s how you make repeated sales.

 

Secret #2: Know what you are promoting – I mean REALLY know it.

The easiest products to sell are the ones you use yourself. When I go back through all my affiliate promotions I can easily see that the top performers were the ones I really liked and used myself. Not always, but usually.

That’s why it is so important to promote stuff you would buy or have bought yourself. That way you can literally show potential buyers all the good and the bad of the product. That makes your promotions REAL and GENUINE.

 

Secret #3: Promote like you would to your mom or your best friend.

As I mentioned, when you are doing affiliate marketing you are going to need to create some content around the products you promote. I’m talking about emails, blog posts, videos and well… ways to help potential buyers make a decision.

This is where many affiliate marketers go wrong. They go into sales pitches like a bad used car salesman.

Instead of doing that, you need to keep it real. Talk to them like you respect them, truly want to help them and can relate to them.

Talk about real world things. Inject a little humor. Keep it light and don’t pressure them. They’ll appreciate it and want more.

And yes, they might even buy from your link. If not this time, maybe next time.

 

This type of affiliate marketing is not only more fun, it is more effective. More people will pay attention to you when you are not in their face screaming louder than the next guy about why they should buy.

Try this technique and I guarantee you’ll start getting better results with your affiliate marketing.

 

OK, let me wrap this up…

As you can see from today’s issue, if you want to earn serious commissions with affiliate marketing, you need to put in some time and effort.

You need to be creative. And you need to take as many lessons from experienced marketers as you can.

Follow the stuff they do that works. Copy them when you can.

 

If you want to start generating full-time affiliate commissions in your spare time, this is probably the easiest way to do it without doing all the work yourself.
