MYTH: Most of Your Sales Will Come from Only a Few Affiliates [PODCAST]

The Affiliate Guy Episode 292

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.

MYTH: To Get Affiliates You Have to Know People & Do Lots of Reciprocal Promotions [PODCAST]

The Affiliate Guy Episode 291

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!

The First Rule of Affiliate Marketing

How Being Selective Results in More Confidence

I have a confession to make…I actually HATE rules. They feel too confining and restrictive. To me, rules are made to be broken. But there is ONE rule I never break…the FIRST rule of affiliate marketing.

The first rule of affiliate marketing

I’m often asked by people new to the affiliate marketing game:

“How do you promote with confidence when you’re not 100% sure about the product?”

Well, that question is fundamentally flawed. If you aren’t 100% sure about the product, don’t promote it. That’s the first rule of affiliate marketing.
