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.
One of the single most frustrating things you can do as an online entrepreneur is to put in the effort to recruit affiliates…only to have them do nothing. Today, I’ll show you how to activate your inactive affiliates.
I received an email recently from a guy who has over 1,000 affiliates for his product. That’s great!
What is the secret to hearing YES more often from potential affiliates? The answer is surprisingly simple and I share it in today’s video:
In this video, I share why you don’t hear YES more often and how to fix that. I also share the formula I follow to hear YES from more potential affiliates.
One of the biggest problems I’ve experienced with affiliates is getting them to fully commit to a promotion. Sure, they say they’ll promote, but when the time comes to send an email, they are nowhere to be found. Today’s video shows you how to get your affiliates to fully commit to promoting your launch.
Getting affiliates to fully commit is all about utilizing the principles of commitment and consistency that Robert Cialdini talks about in his book Influence (a must read for any marketer by the way).

There is more to the fish parable than just giving and teaching.
You know the saying:
Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.
But there is more to it than that.
If you only teach a man to fish, he’ll soon grow tired of fish. Eventually he might grow so sick of it, that he will no longer eat. And he will die of starvation.
Teach a man to sell fish and he’ll feed the world and enjoy a variety of foods with the profit.
Yes, teach a person to sell and they can do nearly anything. And yet, our schools teach nothing of the sort. So it’s on you and me to teach these skills to the ones we care about.
