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.
I’m currently on my way back the way back from Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula LIVE event. This was one of the most uplifting, encouraging, and educational events I’ve ever attended. After it finished, Mark Sieverkropp and I shot a recap and shared our biggest takeaways.
If you have not attended PLF Live or other live events with other internet marketers, you should. There is nothing that can substitute for meeting and learning IRL (in real life).
When you promote a product launch as an affiliate, you know that the last day is the biggest day. On average, 40-60% of sales can come on the last day. I’ve even seen some affiliates at the top of leaderboards with 70%+ in the final 24 hours. Today, I’ll show you how to close with a bang and double or even triple your commissions on the last day.
I was reviewing the stats from the past year of launches that we’ve run for awesome people like Michael Hyatt, Ray Edwards, Jeff Goins, and others and I noticed an interesting trend. It was almost universally true.
The great thing about affiliate launches is that they can bring in a huge amount of money in a short time. I love them for that reason. But…the downside is that you don’t make nearly as much money when you aren’t launching. So, how often can you do an affiliate launch? That’s what today’s video is all about.
If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked this questions, I’d be rich (OK, not rich, but I could get my family into Disney World). Launches are great and we want more of them.
Over the past few years, I’ve had a ton of great questions come my way. Unfortunately, I’m not always able to answer all of them…at least publicly. Well, that’s about to change. For the next 30 days, I’m doing a video each day, answering many of the backlog of questions I’ve had from awesome readers like you. This is day one.
If you’ve ever wondered if it’s OK to promote something as an affiliate if you haven’t used it yourself, this video answers that question.
This is a guest post from Mark Sieverkropp. Mark is the head of Business Operations and the Senior JV Director for Matt McWilliams Consulting, Inc. Mark, his wife Lacie, and their two children make their home in Ephrata, Washington..
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?
Online summits are all the rage these days. I wholeheartedly believe they are one of the single best ways to significantly grow your list, connect with influencers, make a huge splash in the market, and…make a lot of money in the process.
Are Summits Dead?
There is a lot of talk in the online marketing community about summits right now. The big question is: Are summits dead?
The short answer is no. In fact, they keep getting bigger and bigger.
Can you imagine what would happen if copywriting legends like Perry Marshall, Jeff Walker, Daniel Levis, Ben Settle, Ray Edwards and dozens of other experts got together to share their best advice? Well, imagine no more, because it’s happening this September and not only can you attend for free, but you can promote it as an affiliate!
I’m excited about the Copywriting Success Summit for three reasons:
I’m currently in the very early stages of writing a book. Trust me, I know the effort that goes into these things. But the reality is that most books don’t make much money themselves. But they are a great place to include affiliate offers. This post will show you how.
I got a great question from Jonathan Hyde recently:
I am an avid reader. Almost to a fault. I often read way too many books and forget to actually apply what I learn. Not so with five books in particular…and I want to give to you.
Over the past two years I’ve read five books which have transformed or ARE transforming my business.
