As I type this, I am in the middle of running another massive launch, this time for Michael Hyatt. The upside to these launches is that they are fun, they have massive impact, and well…we make a lot of money. The downside is that it’s really hard to stand out. Today, I’ll share 10 ways you can go the extra mile and really stand out, serve your audience better, and sell a lot more!
If you want to break out of the clutter of large affiliate promotions, you have to go the extra mile.
If you are running an affiliate program, it is your responsibility to make sure your partners have everything they need. And I mean everything. But what are the most important things you can provide your affiliates? Here are seven must-provide resources.
Kelly McCausey from SoloSmarts.com recently emailed me to ask:
What tools do you need to run a great affiliate program? Well, the answer is: It depends. It depends on your current level, your budget, and to some extent personal preferences. Today, I share nine tools for every level and preference. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, have virtually no budget or an unlimited one, this video covers it all.
Running an affiliate program is not as complicated (technologically speaking) as many people make it out to be. Depending on your level, you could get started with just four of the tools I mention in this video. And it would cost you less than $250.
Over the years, I’ve found one of the secrets to affiliate program success. It’s right up there with knowing the right people, having great conversions, and copywriting. It’s the F-word…fun, that is. Get your mind out of the gutter. Affiliate programs should be fun. For your affiliates and for you.
A few weeks ago, during Jeff Goins’ recent Tribe Writers launch, I had an interesting discussion with Jeff’s operations manager, Kyle Young. He said to me, “I want this launch to be so fun for our affiliates that they’ll tell everyone about it and beg to promote again.”
What do you need to know about the tax implications of working with affiliates? At first, the idea of bringing on hundreds or even thousands of people that you have to pay and file paperwork on can be intimidating. But, it’s actually a lot simpler than it appears.
