One question I’ve received quite often is whether or not to pay affiliates on upsells and downsells. I had my own opinion, but I decided to ask some other experts what they thought as well. Today, I share my favorite answer.

According to a recent reader survey, over 70% of my audience worries about emailing their list too often.

We’re wrapping up our series on closing affiliate sales with the 10th and final key. This is the one factor that I can’t measure. It’s just something I noticed as I reviewed all the emails. That’s why I call it the “X Factor.” I have no data to share and no tangible takeaway on this one. But what I noticed is that the top converters were more creative in their approach. They seemed to go outside of the box and do things that no one else (even other top converters) were doing.
Can email length really make a difference in your ability to close sales at the end of an affiliate promotion? The research sure says it does. In fact, the top closers’ emails were nearly half the length of the non-converters. Your goal on cart close day is to get them to the sales page or your bonuses page. That is it. It’s certainly not to write a novel. Remember, short and sweet on cart close day. That is key #9 to closing more affiliate sales.

Today, I share WHY this works, WHO to call, and HOW to get them on the phone.

One of the simplest ways to close more affiliate sales is to engage people using live chat. It works for three reasons: 1. It stands out, 2. It’s personal, and 3. It’s an “Objection Crusher.” This is an easy way to drastically increase your commissions. So go sign up for Live Chat, install it on your site, set it up to engage people, and be available.
In this series of how to close more affiliate sales, today’s secret was the most surprising to me. But it is also one of the most impactful. When I studied the optins for the top converters vs. the average or below average converters, I found that 13% of the top converters sales came DIRECTLY from links to live events such as webinars and AMAs. Only 5% of the below average converters’ sales did. That’s secret #6 and the topic of today’s podcast.
