Can you promote a product you haven’t personally used? I get that question all the time from new affiliates (and seasoned ones as well). You will hear a lot of very successful affiliates say that they only promote products that they use personally, and I totally understand why they say that. But I believe that you can, and in many cases, should promote products that you haven’t used yourself. Today I’ll share with you why – and how to decide when to do so.
Every once in awhile I talk to someone that feels like affiliate marketing is a chore. That it’s hard and not worth the effort. Today I want to flip that on its head. I want you to LOVE affiliate marketing. Watch this video to find out why.

I want you to fall in LOVE with affiliate marketing. Today’s episode shows you WHY and HOW.
A lot of affiliate programs only work with larger affiliates…and I think that’s wrong. I’m not judging people who decide to only work with a select group of needle movers, but I do think it’s a mistake. Below I share seven reasons why you should work with smaller affiliates.

What if you could completely remove failure as an option in your affiliate marketing? What if there was a way to set goals that would guarantee your success as an affiliate? Well, there is. By following the three principles outlined in today’s post you can ensure your success — whether it is your first affiliate promotion or your 100th.
Let’s be honest:
It hurts when you join a launch as an affiliate and don’t make a dime.
When you are first starting out recruiting affiliates, it can be hard to find more than a few people who are good fits and with whom you have a good relationship. That makes recruiting good affiliates a challenge, because most people have a limited network of potential affiliates on hand. So how do you recruit affiliates you don’t even know? Today, I’ll show you how.
Over the years, more than 80% of affiliates we’ve recruited began promoting offers before we had any relationship with them. That means that prior to reaching out to them to ask them to promote something, we didn’t know each other. At all.
As I type this, I am in the middle of running another massive launch, this time for Michael Hyatt. The upside to these launches is that they are fun, they have massive impact, and well…we make a lot of money. The downside is that it’s really hard to stand out. Today, I’ll share 10 ways you can go the extra mile and really stand out, serve your audience better, and sell a lot more!
