How to Make Money From Affiliate Marketing

It’s insane, more and more people are starting affiliate marketing. The only problem is that almost all of them will fail. Some will invest some money in pay per click and make a small profit, but since they spend $500 to earn a $27 commission, they will pause their ppc campaign after a few weeks. Others will try one or two free advertising method, but it won’t produce results. They will eventually stop after a few months.

What super affiliates do? And how can they earn several thousands of dollars every single month?

I’m sure you think that they have uncovered a hidden secret on the Internet.

No folks.

There is no secret.

1. Mentoring

Super affiliates know what works because they have a mentor. Every big earner on this planet has a mentor. It’s the same online and offline.

Did you know that Warren Buffet was Bill gate’s mentor?

My affiliate marketing mentor also has his own mentor. He is not trying to figure out everything himself.

Do you have a mentor? Do you have someone who is already successful telling you what you need to do to earn more?

If not, you may think about getting one.

2. Mindset

They have a very strong business mindset. Do not think that all their affiliate campaign make their money at the first try. It’s not like they start an AdWords campaign and they are profitable the very same day. They will test and tweak their campaigns for weeks before they try a new one.

When a campaign doesn’t work, they try to find why. They are not afraid to lose a few hundreds dollars to make it work.

3. Affiliate tools

One of the reasons of their success is that they have the right affiliate tools. Tools that are proven to make their business grow.

Learning How to Build Your Network Marketing Business the Hybrid Way

If you have been in network marketing for a while but haven’t seen the results that you want or aren’t able to live the lifestyle you want, then you may be working harder vs smarter. In this article, I am going to talk with you about learning how to build your network marketing business the hybrid way.

Online Marketing Meets Offline Marketing

There seems to be a debate going on these days between the old-school marketers and the young guns of networking. One believes that you have to do everything offline, get “belly to belly” and look people in the eye. The other believes that you don’t need to market offline and you simply need to do marketing on the internet.

Instead of trashing all of the things that have worked in the past, there is a way to bring online and offline marketing together. This is the most effective way to build a team that isn’t only large but is also strong with a great sense of community. As humans, we all crave a sense of togetherness and belonging and when you can create that with your team while still using the reach of the internet, you are going to experience something very powerful.

What Hybrid Marketing Looks Like

If you want to market with both methods, it may look something like this:

  • Generate Lead Online
  • Lead Goes Through Sales Funnel
  • You Speak to the Lead Live on the Phone
  • Meet the Lead In Person (If Local)

As you can see, the internet did the work of the sifting and sorting. You were simply there for either the close or the confirmation. This will allow you to use your time effectively, build a big team and is good for duplication.

Marketing Your Book Offline

Most authors today recognise the benefits of using social media to raise their profile and promote their books. In fact readers expect you to have a Facebook fan page, tweet regularly, email newsletters, blog, guest blog, have a webpage and, oh yes, write more books.

Whilst having a social media presence is important do not forget the benefits of getting out there and meeting potential readers in person. There are huge opportunities to do this if you are prepared to do a bit of ground work and market your event.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

Run a workshop at your local library – this could be a reading or you might suggest some other type of event related to the content of your book, for example if you book is set in Victorian times you might give a presentation about an aspect of Victorian life. You could choose to do something practical, perhaps making a Victorian styled hat; this will engage potential readers and raise awareness of you and your books.

Run a workshop at the local school – if you have written a children’s book then consider offering to run an activity at a school. Perhaps the children could act out a scene from your book, or maybe you could run a session on writing a short story. You could even collate the stories and self-publish them for the children, or their parents, to purchase.

Do a book signing at your local bookshop – as a local author your bookshop will be only too happy to accommodate you. Do some marketing to ensure the event is a success; also consider offering “something extra” to those who come along and buy a book.

Be interviewed on local radio – local celebrities who are happy to talk about their work, their book and their interests appeal to local listeners.

Be a guest speaker for a local group – if you can talk with enthusiasm about a subject related to your book – perhaps the topic itself, the location, or some character trait then there will be many groups happy to have you as a speaker. You may even get paid! In any case you can take along copies of your book to sell.

Now you will have noticed that these ideas are local (to you), that’s because the very fact you are a local writer makes you interesting. However, run a great event and your new fans will recommend you to other groups, bookshops and schools outside of your local area. Before you know it you will be in demand and, if you are in demand, your book will be in demand.

Get out there, meet your readers, and sell more books.
