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.
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.
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
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.
