The Next Wave of Affiliate Marketing
Before I give you my opinions on what is working in 2017…
Let me give you the affiliate links to my products.
I realize some people just want that stuff so they can begin promoting.
Step 1- Click Here for a Clickbank Account (opens in new window)
Step 2- Replace “XXXXX” in the links below with your affiliate ID
- Visual Impact Muscle Building
- Visual Impact for Women
- Visual Impact Cardio
- Visual Impact Frequency Training
Payout to you is 75% of sale.
The products go for $47 with upsells. According to Clickbank the average affiliate earning per sale is $35.90.
I was able to quit my job BEFORE having my own fitness products.
So I know affiliate marketing better than the typical product owner who has never lived off 100% affiliate income.
The Easiest Way to Build a Long-Term Affiliate Business in 2017?
- Focus on list building.
- Entertain people while helping them achieve their goals.
- Mix in personal stories, tips and product recommendations.
Important: People on your list are real people just like you… don’t send people to scammy sales pages or scammy video sales pages.
I can probably explain this better in a short video.
[In the video I discuss sending cold traffic directly to an offer -VS- getting people on your list, then recommending products.]
The fitness market is becoming a noisy place.
It’s hard to get somebody’s attention long enough for them to look at your sales page… or a sales page you are promoting as an affiliate.
The only long-term way to cut through this noise is by sharing YOUR personal experiences and personal story.
The “10 Rules for a Flat Belly” type of article or banner?
It doesn’t stand a chance against you and your story.
Share your story!
To your list
…and on your blog (if you enjoy writing).
If you hate to write or would rather make videos?
Do the combo of Youtube and list building.
Write and share helpful content.
Want to link to any of my articles while getting credit for sales produces from those visitors?
Here’s the link format to do that.
As an example:
Let’s say your Clickbank Affiliate ID is ‘fitness’
You want to link to my Fitness Wisdom from the 1980’s article.
The link would look like this.
This is all one URL without spaces or breaks… it could show up as 2-3 lines on my blog since it is so long.
You would obviously want to link text from your blog or email.
Something like this.
Rusty has an entertaining story about meat-heads mullets and fitness over on his site.
Here’ a link:
Note: Read that article, by the way, if you want to see an example of a personal story. It opens in a new tab.
Add Your Personal Flavor to Your Marketing
Right now, bots and Artificial Intelligence is littering the Internet with bland and generic info.
Even human-written content is being outsourced.
The “Human Element” is becoming a rare thing!
The way you are going to stand out in 2017 and going forward is with personality-based marketing.
This is where artificial intelligence falls short.
AND I believe…
This is “The Next Wave” of affiliate marketing.
