I just finished my favorite interview EVER! Seriously. No offense to past guests, but today’s guest ROCKED the house! My friend Dave Gambrill joined me on a live interview and shared all of his best affiliate marketing tips and tricks. SO much value! So buckle up, take good notes, and learn from the master!
PART TWO: Devin Slavin interviewed me for his Online Course Creation Summit and I shared how you can sell more online courses with JV Partners (Affiliates). In the second part of this two-part interview, I share the exact strategies we use to find, recruit, and motivate affiliates for our clients and our own products.
How can you get the most from launching your online course? Devin Slavin interviewed me for his Online Course Creation Summit and I answered the very question. You won’t be surprised by my answer: Joint Venture (JV) Partners (AKA Affiliates). In this two-part interview, I share the exact strategies we use to find, recruit, and motivate affiliates for our clients and our own products.
If you are afraid of losing email subscribers when you promote affiliates offers, that’s normal…but it doesn’t have to be that way. In today’s episode, I share a 180-degree mindset shift that will completely change the way you look at affiliate promotions and possibly completely change the way you do business.

You do NOT need to hire an affiliate manager to run your affiliate program. That is a myth! Now, don’t get me wrong. There will be a day when it makes sense to hire someone. I mean…that’s exactly what people hire us to do…and they pay us a LOT of money. BUT to start with, you need to do this yourself. You can get MOST of the results with none of the expenditures. Today, I share why you don’t need an affiliate manager and how to run your own program (and WHY you should!).
There is a killer myth that says that most of your sales will come from only a few affiliates. This myth is so pervasive that I have literally heard one of the top names. Someone you all know. One of the top names in the internet marketing space claim this as a statement of FACT from stage. In fact, the exact quote they used is this: “90% of your sales will come from your top 3 to 5 affiliates.” Let me be brutally clear here: This is nothing more than a cop out. An excuse to not work with smaller affiliates. An excuse to go out and get your 3 or 4 best buddies and a few other people and call it a day. Today, I share why this myth is flat out WRONG and how to develop an ARMY of loyal, dedicated affiliates of all sizes.
There’s a myth that says that having an affiliate program is only for the cool kids with the right connections. Or to get affiliates, you have to burn your list promoting everyone else’s stuff all year just to get your own affiliates. WRONG! When I started my first affiliate program, I knew absolutely NO ONE. In fact, no one on our team did. We weren’t the cool kids. We didn’t have dads who knew the right people. We started with nothing and in 2 years built a $12.6M affiliate program. In today’s episode, I’ll bust these myths and show you how you can find the right affiliates…even if you don’t know anyone in your niche!
Today, I’m kicking off a new, four-part series, “The 4 Killer Myths About Affiliate Programs.” Over the next four episodes, I’ll tackle four of the most pervasive and destructive myths about having your own affiliate program. In today’s episode, I give an overview of the series, share each of the myths in brief, and take a deep dive into the first myth, “I don’t need an affiliate program.”
