Retirement or Extra Online Income – Maybe For You?

Retirement or Extra Online Income – Maybe For You?

Online Income – No Age Barrier – How About You?

Each week I join a group of people on a weekly masterclass in internet marketing and making online income.   In fact the timing of the online meeting is a nuisance to me because I have to get back from badminton and am always hot and disheveled – we are visible on the screen to other participants – I might not look good but it is great that they can’t smell me.

The participants on the Zoom (great webinar service) masterclass call are a great source of knowledge – and I never want to miss the session.  I will tell you more about David and Jen who run this group, below.

The participants all have different niches products, experience etc.

One lady is a gardener and she is learning how to put out information products about her field.

There is a fundamental issue though with making money online.  You need to know how to do it.  It doesn’t just happen.  When doing anything online – you have to learn certain things to make things happen.  The knowledge you need gets labeled as Internet Marketing;

  • building mailing lists
  • driving traffic
  • social media promotion
  • etc etc and so on – always more to learn

Lots to learn – but great fun when you begin to see the action happening and income coming in.

THAT IS GREAT IF YOU HAVE PRODUCTS – BUT WHAT IF YOU DON’T HAVE YOUR OWN PRODUCTS?

One of the best ways to make money online is to sell other peoples products.  NO that is not strictly TRUE.  It is about pre-selling – but that is part of the training.  Affiliate programmes are what you join.

NOW – PLEASE HEAR ME OUT:-

Earlier this year I set up an affiliate programme for an online Webstore  –  HypnosisForDownload.com.

What we have at Hypnosis for Download are well over 200 evergreen products to promote. They are audios and videos that are downloadable and sell worldwide – with immediate delivery.

Ideal products – great value and we have zero refunds.
Good products, worldwide audience.

Now obviously I can advertise the website and sell the products myself – and we do – but we want to do much more than that

BUT NO – what I REALLY WANT to do is get some affiliates.

Promotion by others is preferable because it adds social proof.

My original idea seemed sensible but in reality I was wrong – we realised we would needed to change the approach.

What was my mistake?

In my imagination I assumed that the best affiliates would be hypnotherapists as they would have the knowledge of the subject and would be able to pre-sell potential purchasers.  That may well be true – BUT what most of them did’t have was the internet marketing training and knowledge.

We had a couple of affiliates who made some money but I began to question whether the the affiliates needed to be hypnotherapists.

Mmmmmmm !! ??

SO WE PULLED THE AFFILIATE PROGRAMME FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS.

  1. The affiliate programme software we had used was not great
  2. The affiliates on board needed more training – and I was not the best person to provide that.
  3. The affiliates do not need to be hypnotherapists – as long as they have some access to the products.
  4. There was no commitment necessary and many potential affiliates that joined took NO ACTION.
So a new strategy was essential.  We have a totally new set up which will be our 2018 focus.  Join us as we start the journey.

AFFILIATE SUPPORT PACKAGE

AFFILIATE REGISTRATION

OK – LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE – 2018 STRATEGY – MY INVITE TO AFFILIATES

So here is my latest strategy. Online Income affiliate strategy

1. Hypnosis For Download Store

We are ready to start out with affiliates now. We are totally revamping the online store – with affiliate marketing in mind.    This will be ongoing for several months ( a list as long as my arm with what I want to do)
For example – we will be setting up offers for affiliates to promote. As an example we are putting together a bundle of products to promote in December and January for New Year.  Also there is a Running a Marathon package for affiliates to promote.

2. Affiliates

If you are young (best affiliate I know is a an 18 year old) or Old (even very old  – no limit)  you are welcome.

If you are an affiliate already and have a mailing list and marketing skills – just great!!

If you are new to all of this or need internet market tuition >> See point 3

If you don’t have any of the products I have put together a massive package worth so that you can check out the products you are promoting.  See point 4

3. Training and Products – For Action Today

Internet Marketing Training

I have never stopped having a mentor and training to develop my business.

Let’s get you started if you are a Newbie

At the side of this blog you will see three reports –

PLEASE DOWNOLAD as they are a great start. >>>

As I mentioned above I am a member of a group run by David and Jen.  You will see more about them in any of those reports.  If you get any of those three reports I will see you have download enquiry and I will be in touch with you – with great information.

I am not suggesting for a moment that you get the internet market training just to promote our products.  The fact is there are countless affilate projects and the training with David will help you acquire the skills.

 Having been around the scene for many years I can tell you that there is an abundance of poor internet training online. In the same way that I can point you to a great hypnotherapist in Adam Eason – I can put my hand on my heart and tell you that David and Jen offer the best training resources I have come across online.

Product Check Out

Now here is my offer to all you affiliates.

It is vital that you familiarise yourself with the products you are promoting.  I have put together a great deal – a package of several different products – including the massive Science Of Self-Hypnosis videos/audios.

4. Commissions – Special

Here is the DEAL – an  Affiliate Support Product.

  • PACKAGE WORTH £220 I have put together an affiliate package worth Affiliate package will be £10 which shows your commitment to the affiliate programme – this is FREE as you will get it back when you have made £100 in commissions.
  • INCREASED COMMISSION TO 60% The basic commission is 40% of your product sales – but if you have downloaded this affiliate package your commissions will be 60% from the word go.

New Hypnosis For Download Online Store

My son Tom has been working hard to set up our new Hypnosis For Download online store.  I am delighted for so many reasons.  I am sure you can feel my smile as you read these words  🙂

We have been using an Big Commerce and Ecommerce service to run our online store till now.  All very good these packaged websites and simple to run – but there are always limitations.  You have to rely on a third party plug in apps to support the core programme.

Now we have control and more importantly we can use software and strategies that we want to work.  It will still take us some time to get the polished product – but so what.

Let’s not dbwell on the weaknesses of the old system and look forward.

Improved Benefits For Our Affiliates.

We are developing an affiliate friendly website and will focus and working closely with those who are bringing us traffic and sales.
More news about this later this month.

50% Discount During October

There are always teething problems when you put together a very large website – so we have a 50% discount on all products at the moment.

Testimonials Please

We are also after new testimonials as we haven’t moved all of the Big Commerce testimonials.   We would have liked to have transferred the testimonials but it was a manual process.  I need more hours in the day – so not a good use of time.  So if you have purchased any of our self-hypnosis audios in the past and would like to send them to us we will be sending you a thank you gift.

EARLY NOTICE

There are two products that I will be almost giving away from the end of this week.  All in celebration of my 70th Birthday.  They are ‘Hypnosis Revealed’ and ‘Science Of Self-Hypnosis’.  They are really great products produced by Adam Eason to teach you how to use self-hypnosis skills effectively – towards a healthy mind and success.  Hypnosis is a clinical therapy that can help so many personal issues.

On The Road To Passive Income

On The Road To Passive Income

Sure Fire Passive Income:

Multiple streams of passive income that reward you every month for work done just once.

What a concept – but that is what drives big business.  Utility companies, mobile phones, tv and video – they are all getting you the customer on board for regular monthly income.  Not just big business – this can be you and me as well – setting up or promoting membership websites.

Now I could go on about this here – but I have better idea.  Why waste my time when I have a report that totally explains the whole thing.  I have it for you to download today.

Passive income really appeals to me because of my goals:

You Can See I Am On The Road:

The photo above was taken this morning from my bed in my motorhome.  My wife Babs and I have been down in St Ives which is one of my favourite places in England.  I am down here for a music and art festival.

  • Not retire completely – but do something I really love
  • Earn money – but in a more relaxed way – passive income an ideal
  • Help other people also
  • I want to travel and work – motorhome enthusiast
  • Help and support my kids and their families
  • Keep total life balance
  • Help charities and church missions – there is so much poverty and need out there.

I am ticking a few boxes here and will continue to do so.  But one of the main points mentioned there is PASSIVE INCOME.

I spent most of my adult life nursing and getting paid for my time.  A wonderful career which I enjoyed. Wonderful job, great career, but limited income.

When I left nursing in 1996 – (long story for another day) I started a business in web design.  I could earn much more money as long as my hours were long and so on.

I couldn’t help spotting though – that there were internet marketers who were earning a lot of money by making digital products and getting other people to promote them – the affiliate game no less.  AND GUESS WHAT!  An opportunity me thinks.  The income side – well – it depends whether you learn the skills.

Just take a look at the report

Sure Fire Passive Income

Sure Fire Passive Income

Here Is A VERY BIG TIP

In this report you will see a promotion for a ‘Found Money’ Course.

Now let me be rude and say – Listen:

Within NAMS there are over 400 courses and before I new anything about NAMS I bought one of their courses.  I was so impressed by the training that I joined their Inner Circle membership.  It was then that I realised that ALL of the courses including the one that I had bought are all available to Insiders.

SO –  HERE IS THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO

You will see within the reports that there are links for you to have a 14 day trial (without commitment) for just $1.

Having done that you will see all of the resources and courses available.  In fact I spent the first week just totally absorbed by how much was on offer.  Best for you to find out for yourself

I hope to see you take the trial and consider the potential and your goals.

I will look out for you.

 

 

How To Increase Affiliate Commissions

How To Increase Affiliate Commissions

Bizarre – The Truth About Affiliate Commissions

Here is the introduction to a report ‘27 Ways to Increase Your Affiliate Commissions‘ which I will happily send to you today.

Here’s what most affiliate marketers do:

Find an affiliate program, grab their affiliate links, and plaster those links all over the Internet.
Then they wait for their big payday.
Sometimes a little money trickles in. Sometimes the affiliates do really well and make a decent living wage.
AND THEN
There are the affiliates who pull in such BIG paychecks that they have their accountant’s eyes bulging out in shock.

What’s the secret?

Let me you tell you my experience – FROM the OTHER side of the fence.

I have been working on the technical side of the business that I have run with hypnotherapist Adam Eason since 2005.  We have produced over 120 audios and videos which you can find in our Hyponsis For Download online store.  I won’t go into any details – but I will make the simple facts.

  • Is there a market? – is there a need – well weight control, pain management, confidence issues, allergies, phobias, addictions etc  YES there is a market.
  • We have sold thousands of these audio sessions
  • We have products about self-hypnosis skills
  • Have we had affiliates YES but only a handful have made reasonable progress

I love them – I love them all.
AND
I would like to pay them as much as possible.  In fact I REALLY WANT TO!!  The classic WIN WIN situation

OK – SO WHAT DO AFFILIATES HAVE TO DO

This is what affiliates have to do to achieve purchases – get potential customers to our hypnosisfordownload.com website having pre-warmed them.
SIMPLE you would think.
In fact that is the perception and there are many that put up their hands as interested and wishing to set up an affiliate account.

It is very common for me to be asked how to join up and sell as an affiliate.  The majority of people that are doing that have just thought about promoting to their family and friends.  They are not going to get rich with those limitations.

WE ALL KNOW THOUGH THAT BEING AN AFFILIATE CAN BE VERY LUCRATIVE

I have been around the web basically from the beginning and have met many affiliate specialists.  7 figure incomes annually for several people that I know personally.

I had a mentor who keeps a low profile these days.  He had worse tools than you have access to these days – when he learned his trade and skills.

In yesterdays blog I spoke about NAMS and their training resource membership.  David Perdew (the boss) says that half his income is from affiliate sales.  So there is somebody who creates loads of products – still making money from other peoples products and services.   And good luck to him.  I want to do the same.

The product maker is happy if I sell his product or service
AND
I am happy to get the commissions coming in.

I have a very funny situation – I get a commission cheque from a company called web.com.  I have been getting that for years and I have absolutely no idea what I sold or who to.

My first ever commission payment was from Amazon back in the 90’s when they were first set up.  I had to add some books manually – forgot about the fact that I had done that – and a cheque arrived for £6.  They would not send a £6 cheque these days.  I wish I had kept that cheque.

THE FACT IS YOU NEED TO LEARN SOME SKILLS

There are so many that begin and so many that give up – because they have not linked up with those that can train them properly.

I have said enough.  I will not lecture.

I am just going to offer you a report that I hope will give you an insight into what makes a great affiliate.

Gut Feeling To Enthusiastic Get Up and Just Do It…

Gut Feeling To Enthusiastic Get Up and Just Do It…

Gut Feeling – and what changes it has made!

Gut feeling – is it an intuition or reacting to fears – that is what I wondered when I made a really important decision earlier this year.

The personal change I suddenly envisaged was enormous and the whole thing started in a pub in York.  It had started – just like that   My wife Babs and I were having a meal and conversation when I suddenly announced that I wanted to start a new business.

Now there are a few things that were strange about the changes I was making.

  • I was one of the directors in a business
  • I am hitting my 70th this year
  • There were other people affected by the decision
  • Why a retirement business?
  • My son was working for us – and he would be affected – what about him?
  • There were many things that I did not know about leaving a business
  • etc etc

Where had that come from?  I had no idea but it was explosive, expansive and made me feel good.  You may ask or think – well he was in a pub – was it the beer that was affecting me?  NO – it just suddenly was there.   Gut GUT Feeling!!

What does go on in our minds – ask Adam Eason my hypnotherapist friend.  [ Actually I should have asked him ]

Having made that intuitive decision though is an amazing catalyst for what happens afterwards.  You are free to set a new path – WHICH fits in with the life that you love and your ongoing dreams and wishes.

Here for example are my current ambitions.

  • Not retire completely – but do something I really love
  • Earn money – but in a more relaxed way – passive income an ideal
  • Help other people also
  • I want to travel and work – motorhome enthusiast
  • Help and support my kids and their families
  • Keep total life balance
  • Help charities and church missions – there is so much poverty and need out there.

The thing is that when running a business with anyone else there are areas of that work you love and others that well … [ I will let you fill in the gap here]

New path – clear ambitions -freedom –  what a great and enabling feeling

That is when things start to happen – the timeline is interesting.

One thing leads to another and the positive mindset is in tune.

There is a very popular quote that totally sums this up.

the best way to predict the future is to create it

TIMELINE

How all of this is happening – AND – what next

I will write about most of the following list over the next few days – just a headline here but I hope you will keep an eye on my blog if you are wanting to learn more about developing an online business ( there is a clue to what I am up to.  You can watch me develop a totally new business from scratch – no list – no blog posts yet.  I will

SELL AUDIO PRODUCTS WITH THE HELP OF AFFILIATES.

Within the business that I ran with Adam Eason we had an online shop of self-hypnosis products.  I now have the freedom to develop this bit of the business separately. The audios and videos sell very well and are evergreen.  What I had always wanted to send more time on was developing the sales with the help of affiliates.  [more about passive income businesses in a future blog]

AFFILIATES AND MYSELF NEED TRAINING

There is no doubt that affiliates when well trained, (building lists, getting traffic etc) can make a lot of money online – selling other peoples products.  I didn’t want to do the training myself – but I wanted a great training area.  I also wanted to learn more about how to grow my affiliate business.  [Next great move – NAMS – Novice to Advanced Marketing System ]

QUICK WORD ABOUT NAMS

This is the training area that I have discovered AND Oh what a discovery!!  A few words are not going to help you much.  I want you to get a lot more than that and I want to send you a  ’11 Questions Report’ report – SEE BELOW

If you have a hobby interest or skill (you will hear the marketers call this a niche) you can bet your bottom dollar that there are people out there who would like some of your knowledge.  Online is a great way to deliver that knowledge.
OR
You can sell other peoples products who offer the niche material that you love.  Frankly there are choices galore.

Anyway the simple thing is that it is up to YOU.
Down below I am offering you a download of a pdf about businesses online.  Just ask for a copy and I will happily send you this free PDF.

INSIDE NAMS

Of course there are other consequences when you take a new path.

For example:
I am now an Insider member of NAMS and I get to meet other members who are developing their skills. We all can communicate within an inside private Facebook group.  Only yesterday I was getting direct help from a NAMS insider called Kat Sturtz who lives in US.  Her marketing knowledge is top notch and I appreciate her insight.  (Kat’s Website:  Rockingyourpath.com)

Kat made me laugh at the end of our conversation when her Kentucky upbringing was evident.  She asked me to ‘Holler if I have any further quesions’.  Holler was a word I had only heard in movies.  Isn’t it great when people can work together so closely with such ease – no matter where you live.

NEW NICHE BLOG

Within NAMS I have undertaken some of their monthly challenges.

My first project is the affiliate marketing or the hypnosis products – but I have also decided to set up another project based around a niche blog.  It is all about my love of  travelling in my motorhome.  [More about that another day]

SILVER SURFERS AND BABY BOOMERS

What surprised me was the age of the members of NAMS.  Middle aged and above on the whole (a shame as I think many young people could certainly benefit and prosper from this resource of internet marketing training materials)  

Anyway the long shot is that I am going to particularly market towards people of my age and invite them to join NAMS as an Insider.  It will give me great satisfaction if I can help others grasp what they can do for themselves with an online business.  [Again more another day]

LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING

Just take a look back at my dreams and goals.  In a very short time – without hardly thinking they are all central to what I am doing.  Next on this page is an invite. If you are wanting to learn how to earn some money online – don’t just think about it.  Make a decision.  The way you are going to do it need not matter right away – just know that you want to ‘Create Your Future’.

If you have an expansive feeling just thinking about this it might be a gut feeling – and you can see what that has done for me.

Affiliate Link – But Integrity Is The Key To Success

Affiliate Link – But Integrity Is The Key To Success

Dear M – Yes this is an Affiliate Link

I am replying in this blog to a good question I was asked this morning.

I received an e-mail from a guy who I will call M.  His message: “One question Keith – is that an affiliate link? As in you get a percentage if I buy?”

That is a fair question – and I usually put at the bottom of an article a note to indicate there may be an affiliate link in my message.

BUT what is the issue really.  The thing is that it was an affiliate link and I will tell you more about that below.  However let me explain the point of writing this blog.  It does have a purpose.

I am going to write back to M – telling him to come and read this blog post.

Why?

I want M to get to know me.  I wouldn’t put my affiliate link to anything that I didn’t know a lot about.  I want M to get to know me and see that my intentions are to help him.  I want M to see that I am genuine.  Integrity is the most important part to make affiliate programmes work for you.    Here in my blog I am exposed and bare (not a great thought).  This is ME – warts and all.

HERE IS THE STORY

I have been involved with the web and internet marketing for many years.  I have watched a lot of people that I know well who have made fortunes on the web – selling other peoples products as an affiliate.

The reason that they have had such success is because they have learned some skills – list building, driving large amounts of traffic to websites, making products to give away, using videos, webinars and social media – and so on – but most of all by having a presence on the web and letting people get to know them well.  Self Branding.

And that is what I am doing right now.

So – we have a website where we sell self-hypnosis products – and they are evergreen products which sell well.  We want nothing more than to get affiliates selling our products and giving a large commission for doing just that.

Who better to sell them?  I will give you the answer – people who have used self-hypnosis products themselves in the past.  They can promote them – as long as they have learned the skills as highlighted above.

AND – that is what I did this weekend.

I wrote to all of our self-hypnosis customers and asked them to put their hands in the air if they wanted to learn more about being an affiliate.  I wanted to build a list of prospects who will receive the specific information about affiliate marketing.

M – was one of the responders who then got my follow up letter.

Here is that letter that M received with an affiliate link:-

Hi M*****
Thank you for clicking on the link to say that you are interested about internet marketing and selling our products as an affiliate.
I must start off with a warning though.  You need someone with you.  There are many people that make money – in fact a lot of money – selling other peoples products – BUT – they have learned the game.   You need proper training.
I myself, am part of a mastermind group and I am keen for you to join me – I totally enjoy learning how to market online.
Now I really want you to think about all of this carefully.
I am going to write and guide you if you will take one simple action.
I am going to send you to a page where you can find out all about making money on line.  It will cost you 1$  (yes is an American website) and you will get 14 days access to the very best resources available anywhere on the web.   (I am a man who has been around and made some bad mistakes before I got the best advice).
Now M***** – I will be in touch with anyone that signs up for the 14 Days trial – I will be delighted to help you in every way with all the advice I can give.  Just $1 to go and find out about David and NAMS.
I will love to see you there.
Kindest Regards
Keith Watson

[ As a footnote to this blog post – I will add.  That Try Out NAMS For 14 Days $1 is an affiliate link]

 I feel so confident that you will see the Integrity of David if you look into NAMS.

Here is the best affiliate marketing teacher I can send you to check out.  I think you will soon be happily adding affiliate links in your messages in the future.

Check it out and see.
