Like many online marketers, I am an avid listener of podcasts. Today, I’m sharing my top 10 podcasts for affiliate marketers. This list is all about helping you be a better affiliate or run your own affiliate program. I also share a big announcement, so read on.
The following is not a comprehensive list of all the podcasts that I personally listen to. Nor is it a comprehensive list of every single podcast that an affiliate marketer should listen to.
This is a guest post from Mark Sieverkropp, our senior affiliate manager and resident summit expert. He has run summits such as the Peak Work Performance Summit, The Work By Design Summit and the World Record-Breaking summit, The Authority Super Summit in addition to dozens of product launches.
Recently Matt and I had a conversation with a friend of ours who was wanting to recruit affiliates for her upcoming virtual summit. As we gave her some suggestions, I realized that, while many recruiting techniques are the same, regardless of whether you’re running a summit or a product launch, there are a few key differences. So Matt asked me to share some of those tips with you.
When we first began running virtual summits, we basically took our playbook for affiliate product launches and applied it to summits.
How are you conditioning your audience? Every post you write. Every podcast episode you air. Every email you send. Everything you do with your online business is conditioning your audience. The only question is: How are you conditioning them?
People are creatures of habit. That can be bad or it can be good for your email marketing.
I truly believe that books can change the world. And the right ones can certainly change your business. The stories, ideas, and strategies in good books can ignite a fire in you and give you the tools to take your business and life to the next level. Today, I’ll share my ten favorite books for affiliate marketers…and show you how you can win the top five!
Charlie “Tremendous” Jones said it best:
“You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.”
Here’s the thing about books though, whether they be marketing or otherwise. The books themselves don’t actually do anything for you.
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.
I hear them all the time…excuses for not getting started with affiliate marketing. Or excuses for why people are giving up on affiliate marketing…before they really even get going. Today, we’ll explore the five most common excuses and why they shouldn’t hold you back.
I call these excuses the “Big Buts.” (Cue childish giggles…)
