I believe that you should do an affiliate launch this year. Not next year, not the year after that, but THIS year. I know that’s scary. You don’t think you’re ready…but you absolutely should do an affiliate launch this year. And in this video, I share with you five reasons why.
I was asked recently by my mastermind group (and about 100 other people) what affiliate management system I recommend. For us, we only use InfusionSoft for our clients. But, I also realize that not everyone can afford that starting out. So we also recommend iDev. Listen here to learn why I recommend both and which system is right for YOU.
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.
One of the most commonly asked questions I get is about affiliate management systems. Specifically what software, tool, or plugin are we using to keep track of our affiliates, track their sales, and pay them. That’s what today’s video is all about.
I answer this question in two different ways:
There is a single page on your that, if used properly, can be amazingly profitable. And the best part is that a little effort goes a long way. That page is your resources page and today I’ll show you how to create a killer one…and the awesome results I’ve had from mine.
As someone who has spent more than a decade running affiliate programs and promoting affiliate offers, I get asked almost daily about the tools I use.
We all have to start somewhere. Some first time affiliate launches are big. Some are small. Some are resounding successes, while others are unmitigated disasters. Most, however, fall somewhere in between. That’s exactly what happened to Scott Barlow with his first affiliate launch.
I’ve participated in JV launches for over 2 years for several different courses. Some of them were total failures and others have been very successful.
I recently moved into doing JV Partnerships for my own products as a way to build out my list and be able to reach a greater number of people.
We began by offering a free 8 day course that helps people learn what they should be doing for work or business. Later, this turned into webinars. With each new affiliate partner we would offer the 8 day course to their list — which was an extremely high value optin and led to an opportunity for people to learn more through the webinar. We went through this same sequence one affiliate partner at a time. This allowed us to send a lot of people through the 8 day course and do a lot of webinars so we could really perfect our messaging and sales funnel.
Once I had proven the sales funnel and messaging I knew I wanted to do a full JV launch.
We did our first full-scale affiliate launch in January 2016 with approximately 15 affiliates.
