It’s easy to think that you have to have tens or hundreds of thousands of people on your email list to get on the leaderboard of your next affiliate promotion. That is simply not true. Today I share my takeaways from a conversation I had with my friend Matthew Loomis about how he finished SECOND in a recent launch — outperforming people with lists 2 or 3 times bigger than his.
Last year Matthew Loomis surprised everyone (I’ll admit it…including me) when he finished second during the Fall 2016 Tribe Writers launch. For his list size, he GREATLY outperformed his list size — beating out affiliates with much larger lists.
For years, Breanne Dyck believed that she couldn’t sell to her email list. And her results proved her right. That is until she began to practice what she preached. She used the four techniques I’ll share with you today to send her most successful email ever.
Before writing this one email, Breanne was great at teaching others how to send effective emails. Her consulting company was thriving as she taught others how to sell to their lists.
But her own list was a different story. Breanne didn’t believe she could sell to them. So, she did what was easy, not what to was right.

Recently, while Matt was out of the office for a few weeks, I ran a Quick Launch offering several of our swipe files, a case study, and a 2-hour Affiliate Bootcamp in honor of Matt’s birthday. Today I want to do a recap of that launch and share what went well, what didn’t go so well and what you can learn from all of it!
What is a Quick Launch?
Consider this an invitation. An invitation to share your success story. Read more below to learn how your case study could be featured on my blog.
It’s official…and not surprising…case studies are among my most popular posts. Whether they are the case studies I’ve shared from my own experience like:
Is it possible to succeed at affiliate marketing with a small email list? You bet it is! Today, I share an awesome case study with John Meese who made $5,359 in affiliate commissions in just one month with a list of only 1,302 subscribers.
If you haven’t noticed, I am a big believer in affiliate marketing as an income builder. From 2014 to 2015, I made more than $100,000 in just in affiliate commissions. My list was never more than 2,000 people.
If you’ve ever wondered what goes into a massive product launch, this post is for you. Josh Turner’s JV Manager, Ryan Farrell, recently shared their winning playbook…and you get to peak inside.
Josh Turner recently launched his new course, The Appointment Generator. And they launched it big. By the time the dust settled, they’d sold nearly $3,000,000 worth of courses.
The reality is that most of us will never do a mega-launch like that, though I am confident many of you will. Regardless, there are some huge takeaways from Josh’s launch that Ryan shared. I’ll break them down into two sections:
- What You Can Learn for Your Product Launch
- What You Can Learn Promoting Affiliate Offers
This post is merely an overview and has my biggest takeaways, but the FULL interview with Ryan is amazing. Click here to get immediate access.
If you’ve ever wanted to be a fly on the wall when a popular online entrepreneur recaps his six-figure affiliate launch, now is your chance. Ray Edwards, a client of ours, recently did just that with his team (myself included). We held a one-hour team meeting to breakdown his Copywriting Academy launch…and Ray decided to share it all.
Last fall Ray Edwards launched his amazing course, Copywriting Academy. This was his first ever affiliate launch and ended up bringing in almost as much revenue in one week as he did the entire rest of the year. All round, it was a huge success.
BUT…oh, there is always a “but”…we had a lot to improve upon.
