When you get started in affiliate marketing, just like when you start anything, you have a ton of enthusiasm and excitement — which is a good thing. But it can also lead to mistakes that are easily avoidable if you just know what they are. In today’s video, I share one of the most common mistakes that I see new affiliates make.
Recently I had a subscriber ask me how to determine what price points they should promote as an affiliate. This is a question I get asked fairly frequently, and there isn’t a good one-size-fits-all answer. There are three things to consider when determining what price points you should be promoting to your audience. I share them with you in this video.
Recently I made a decision I NEVER make. Normally my team and I plan out our promotions several months in advance, but this time I made a decision to promote an offer and sent my first email the same day.

How heavy is a 10 lb. weight? 10 lbs., right? Well, that depends… if you picked up a short book beforehand, it feels pretty heavy.

Recently I read a comment from my friend Jim Woods. He mentioned the concern that many people have – affiliate “overlap,” as he called it, or affiliate saturation. Basically, he said he was on several people’s lists who would be promoting Jeff Goins’ Tribe Writers launch at the same time and wondered about subscriber fatigue, lower email open rates, and even unsubscribes. In today’s video, I share two things to remember about the myth of affiliate saturation and one way that IF it happens, it could work to your benefit.
Recently I got a great question from a subscriber about how to choose which niches to promote. I have a very short and simple answer to this question, so watch the video below.

When you run an affiliate launch, the key is to make it ridiculously simple for your affiliates to share your content with their audience. That’s why it’s standard to provide swipe copy, graphics, leaderboard updates and other tools and resources. As a general rule, the easier it is to promote, the more your affiliates will promote.
