5 Affiliate Marketing Predictions For 2021

We are in the third week of this brand new year, and here I am predicting what I think will happen in 2021, here are my 5 affiliate marketing predictions for 2021.

For starters, 2020 was a very strange year, the global pandemic and the lockdown caused a lot of uncertainty around the world, many people lost lives due to the pandemic, people lost their jobs and it has been even harder to get a job in the last year.

My affiliate marketing predictions for 2021

5 Affiliate Marketing Predictions For 2021

 

Content will be a king

Anyone in the digital marketing sphere knows that content is the king, but most people think that content marketing is the way to generate free traffic, this is true but I think also this will be applicable to the paid traffic.

Nowadays many advertising companies do not accept thin content landing pages, they want you to promote your content to their platforms, and then from your content, you can promote your offers and services.

So if do you want to double or triple your affiliate income this year you will need to produce high-quality content and supply to your prospects, this content can be written, ( Facebook posts, blog post, etc, ) audio ( podcasts ) or video ( youtube, Facebook live, etc).

Influencers Will Become Even More Important

Talking about content, you will need to become a kind of influencer if you have to make it big this year, you do not have to have a massive following in order to an influencer, if you have 1000 followers in social media who you can help with this will be huge.

Trust continues to be a key factor in purchasing. The current period of uncertainty and increased privacy concerns due to perceived Big Tech overreach add to this. Consumers prefer content marketing’s softer approach to inform and educate without being intrusive.

If you can create content that will be entertaining, and educative people will follow you like you and buy whatever you recommend them to, so get to work.

I am not an influencer yet but if you can follow me on my social I will appreciate it a lot.

Video marketing will be huge

Two years ago most people did not know what zoom was, due to the pandemic, most people started to work virtual using their computers, and most people use video conferencing software like zoom to conduct their daily meetings. This makes most people become comfortable with participating in video conference calls.

You can take advantage of this by creating more video conference calls to promote your affiliate products and services.

Also since many people will be still working from home in 2021 they will consume more content especially videos on Youtube, 2021 is a great year to start a Youtube channel if you do not have one.

Live streaming will be more popular

Talking about people being comfortable with videos and being bored at home due to lockdown restrictions, many people will be more willing to watch live streaming on a social network like Youtube, Twitter, Twitch, Facebook, or Tiktok, make sure you use these social media in the combination of live streaming to get in touch with your prospects.

Affiliate marketing will be still the way to go

People are still losing jobs and it is even harder to get a new one, lockdown makes people depressed and loses hope, you can promote products that teach people how to make money online, you can promote products that teach people how to homeschool their kids, etc, these products will have massive appeal to most of the people and you can make cash from them.

It is nothing wrong or bad selling people products like this during the pandemic, as long as the products are legit and they really help people you can do this.

Tips For New Affiliate Marketers

Starting an online business can be overwhelming and there is a lot of information out there, so if you are new and you need some pointers on how to promote affiliate offers and make money online here are my top 8 tips for new affiliates marketers.

Tips For New Affiliate Marketers

1. Focus heavily on building an email list

If you have been online for more than a week, I am sure that you already know that money is on the list, that is true, if do you want to build a solid online business and make money online you need to build your mailing list.

Building a list is an act of collecting the email address and names of people who are interested in what do you are offering online.

The way we do it is by offering something of value to them and they provide us with their name and email address, then in the future, you can send them some tips and offers to their email address, and this way you will make affiliate commissions.

In order to build your email list, you will need three things, the ethical bribe, which is the thing that you will offer to your prospects in exchange for their email address.

You will need an autoresponder, this is a software you will use to save those contacts your collecting, and also you will use it to send pre-written messages to all your subscribers at the same time, I use Aweber for this the good news is that this is free you can get Aweber here.

Lastly, you will need a squeeze page, this is the page where the exchange occurs, all you need to do is to create a headline with what you are going to give them, a small call to action, and a place where they can put their email address.

There are many ways to create squeeze pages, you code it yourself if you know HTML, you can use some sort of software to build it or you can have someone build it for you, personally, I use Clickfunnels, You can get Clickfunnel  14 days free trial here.

Here is an example of a squeeze page. If you click the image you will be able to download it.

squeeze page

2. Send your paid traffic to your squeeze pages

This is one of the biggest mistakes new affiliates make, they send traffic directly to the sales pages, as I said before, you need to build your email list, so I would say that send at least or your paid traffic to the squeeze page.

You can buy traffic from Google, Facebook, or solo ads, it does not matter you need to send it to the squeeze page.

3.Build a network of fellow affiliate and product vendors

In order to get success in this business, you need to become relevant, when you start out no one knows who you are, the only way people can know who you are is by becoming connected to them, you can start by joining Facebook groups related to your niche and participating in them, this way most people they will get to know you.

The advantage of this is that sometimes it is difficult to get approved to promote products if no one knows who are you, if you find a hot product, you can just find the owner on Facebook and they see that you have a lot of friends in common who are affiliate marketers it will be easy for them to approve you to promote their products.

4. Offer quality bonuses.

One of the best lessons I learned from the one funnel away challenge is how to increase your affiliate sales by offering bonuses.

When there is a hot offer, many marketers will want to promote it, the only way to stand out is to offer a bunch of bonuses to people who buy through your link.

You might think that if you’re new then you do not have any bonuses to offer, this is not true, you can offer them notes from the training you took, or how to use the product, or a case study of how that product helped you out, this kind of things will increase your credibility and many people will trust you.

5. Purchase the product yourself.

Buying the product I promote and recommend has become part of the marketing strategies I use, all this started one day when I send an email promoting one product I saw in JVZoo, one guy messaged me back, wanted to buy the product through my link, but wanted to know more about my experience about that product, to be honest, I was embarrassed since I never used the product before.

Since then I buy all the products I want to promote if I think it did not worth my money it does not worth my subscriber’s money, so my tip for this is that don’t be like me back then buy the product and test it to see if it works before you promote it to others.

6.Avoid promoting junk products

This is the main reason I recommend buying and test products before promoting them, the problem is that there are many products online that just do not deliver the promise on the sales pages.

The one-click traffic solution software you see in warrior plus or Jvzoo does not work, even if you see a sales page is very convincing, the best solution is to buy the product and test it yourself to see if they deliver what they promised.

The problem is that online business depends on how people in your list trust you, and one wrong product to your list can take down all the hard work you did on building trust and rapport, only send high-quality products that will help your prospects.

7. Build your online tribe

Building your email list should be your main focus, but alongside it, you can start building a following in the main social media.

You want to ask people who join your list to follow you on social media like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube. The main reason for this is that no matter how careful you are there is a chance that Aweber can shut down your account for violating their TOS, the same can happen to your  Youtube, Facebook, or Twitter account.

So if you build your following in social media and your autoresponder account is shut down, you can create another account with another company and ask those people to rejoin your list, and most of them will join it again, this time you won’t be starting from scratch.

8. Build your own website

It does not matter what do you want to do online, you need to have your own website, in order to do this, you need a domain name and a hosting account.

You do not need to overcomplicate this, you need a simple website, a domain name that can be your own name, and cheap hosting ( if you do not want to be a full-time blog)

Don’t be afraid to make your own simple website with your own domain name. It is so easy to have your own site and it will allow you to do lots of things, like building lead capture pages, review blogs, sales pages if you decide to have your own offer, and many many other benefits.

You can get a domain name from Namecheap here.

You can get a hosting account from Bluehost here.

How To Make Money With Warrior Plus

Warrior Plus is one of the fastest-growing affiliate networks, it is also one of the first networks to pay its affiliates instant affiliate commission although that seems to be coming to an end.

This is my recommended affiliate network for affiliate who comes from Clickbank banned countries, you can read more about best Clickbank alternatives here.

If you’re new to Warrior Plus or affiliate marketing, in general, I am going to give you a step-by-step formula on how to make money with Warrior Plus.

In order to make money with Warrior Plus, please follow these steps. If you have an account you might want to skip the first two steps, because these were made for those who do not have an account yet.

1. Create a WarriorPlus account

In order to access the affiliate system, you must have an account with WarriorPlus. If you do not have one, you can create one here: http://www.warriorplus.com/user/new

You will see a page like this.

Create a WarriorPlus account

 

All you need to do is to provide your user name, your email address, and a password then click create an account.

After that you will receive a verification email, all you need to do is to click the verify link and your account will be created.

2. Add a Paypal Account to Receive Funds

In order to use the affiliate system, all WarriorPlus members will need a Paypal account that has had the permissions needed by WarriorPlus authorized.

i. Click on your username in the upper-right hand corner of WarriorPlus.com and select “My Account” from the dropdown menu. or go to https://warriorplus.com/account

ii. Under Vendors/Affiliates, click on “Merchant Account

Add a Paypal Account to Receive Funds

iii. Click the green button that says “+ New Account” which will pull up a dropdown menu for you to select one of the following merchant account types: PayPal, Stripe, Bank Account (the US Only).

When you select one of the merchant account types, you will be redirected to the appropriate page to verify your account.

merchant

Once your merchant account is authorized, you are ready to request affiliate status for offers.

It is highly recommended to add at least one Paypal account, as most buyers/vendors use that service

Also make sure that you add your real name, your photo, and some social media to your profile, this will create trust between vendors and you and it will be easier for you to get approved when you request permission to promote a product.

Just go to edit profile and add all the required information.

3. find a good offer to promote

In order to select a good offer to promote on Warrior Plus you need to click on the affiliate tab then offers as shown in the image below.

https://warriorplus.com/affiliate/offers

how to make money with warrior plus

 

This is my recommendation for selecting affiliate offers.

Select affiliate offers that pay you between $5 and $20 with a 100% commission on front-end sales.

In my experience, I found out that products that sell between $5 and $20 on the front end offer have a better conversion especially if you’re just starting out. The only thing that you need to make sure of is that the offer has some upsells and they pay you 100% commissions on the front end funnel.

Select affiliate offers that were launched between 3 to 12 months ago.

Most Warrior Plus vendors want to attract super-affiliates during their launch period and in order to do this they need to keep high numbers like conversion ratio, visitor value, and low refund rates, so if you don’t have any sales yet there is a high possibility that you won´t be approved, in order to increase your chance you need to choose products that were launched 3 to 12 months ago, this won’t hurt the vendor so much and probably big guys are not promoting it anymore so it is easier for the vendor to approve you, I won’t go further than that.

When you make some sales, you can start to apply for new launches and this can skyrocket your profit.

Select offers with 1000+ sales

You need to promote a product with more than 1000 sales, this is because if the product can’t sell at least 1000 units after 3 months probably it is not a good product to sell.

Select offers with a conversion ratio of 10%+

You need to select a product with a conversion ratio of 10% or more, this means that for every 10 visitors you sent to the offer at least one purchase it, this is not an exact science, it could be a little bit more or a little bit less but I won’t go to promote a product with less than 5% conversion ratio.

Select affiliate offers with $1 visitor value.

This means roughly you will make $1 for every persona that clicks that affiliate link, for example, if you send 100 visitors you will be expected to make around $100, again this is not an exact science, it can vary depending on your call to action and traffic source.

The higher this number the better, don’t promote offer below $0.8 visitor value.

Select offers with less than a 10% refund ratio.

This is the number of people who purchased the product but decided to request their money back, this may be because the product is fraudulent, or the product didn’t deliver the promise on the sales page (that is why you need to buy the product for yourself first), even if the product is perfect some people will still ask for a refund, this is the nature of this business.

You need to make sure that the refund ration is less than 10%, this means you will have one refund for every 10 sales, this is not bad, for me personally I go for products with less than 5%.

So these are 6 things you should consider when it comes to selecting Warrior Plus products to promote as an affiliate after you find the products that reach those requirements then move to the next step.

 Buy the product

This is one of the deadly mistakes that new affiliates make, you want to buy a product before you even start to promote it.

I highly recommend buying a product before even requesting permission to promote it.

Why you need to buy a product.

To familiarize with it: It is the best practice to know the product you’re promoting, first, this will make sure that the product is of high quality and second it will save you from embarrassment when one of your prospects ask you how to use the product if you don’t know how you will lose your credibility and trust me it is very difficult to get it back.

It is easy to get approved: Some vendors are very reluctant to let new affiliates to promote their products especially if you don’t have any sales, the best way is to buy their product, and let them know that you liked it (if it is the case) and you would like to promote it (send them a receipt to show that you bought the products), I got approved every time I used this trick.


Request permission to promote

In order to promote offers, you will need to be specifically approved by the vendor to do so.

In order to get approved this is what you need to do:

The “Get Offers” page is found in the Affiliate section (Click on “Affiliates” in the top menu and then “Offers”), and there you will be able to browse through the offers available for you to promote.

Select the offer do you want to promote considering the criteria discussed in step 3.

How To Make Money With Warrior Plus request approval

 

So just click on the request button and you will be directed to the affiliate offer page where you can see some of the details.

Just fill the form that you will see, tell them that you want to promote their offer, tell them the traffic method you will use and that is it.

request approval

Some of the vendors will approve you and some won’t if you’re not approve don’t worry try the next offer.

In order to increase your approval rate you can do  the following

Record a video

You can use your smartphone to record yourself showing your face, you can say something like this, Hi, Vendors name, my name is ‘your name’ I am a new affiliate here at Warrior Plus, I have been learning how to build a business from ‘name a big marketer who teaches affiliate marketing’ I would like to promote your product, I will use ‘name the traffic strategy’ as my main traffic method to drive visitor to your offer, thank you ‘your name’.

You can adopt a little bit to fit you, after finishing that video upload it to youtube make sure it is unlisted(only people with a link can see it).

Take a link and send it to them via the comment section on Warrior Plus, if you do this your approval rate will be more than 90%.

Add them to social media

Another way to get approval is to add those vendors in social media, you need to make sure that your social media have the same name as in Warrior Plus and you use your real picture, after adding them, just reach out to them and tell them that you want to promote their product, most of the time the will approve you.

Those are two methods you can use to increase your approval ratio.

Once approved, you will receive an email from the system and then you will be able to access your affiliate links for that product.

Get Your Affiliate Link(s)

Click on “Affiliates” in the top menu and then click on “get links” and you will be taken to this page here: https://warriorplus.com/wsopro/affiliate/get-offers.php?&show=active

On this page, you will find all the offers that you were approved to promote as an affiliate. Find the offer you’re looking for and then click on the green button that says “Get Link” next to the offer and inside the window that pops up, you will be able to copy Your Affiliate Link.

get your link

This is an example of an offer that meets all requirements I mentioned in the steps above, I made 2 sales when I was testing this, I just sent the offer to my list and the traffic is still coming.

4: Promote your offer

Cloak your link

After your affiliate link, I do not recommend promoting directly this link, I will recommend cloaking it.

In order to cloak your affiliate link, I will recommend using bit.ly. Just go to bit.ly, create an account (it is free ).

cloak

Click on the create button, copy the long ugly affiliate link that you got from Clickbank and paste it where it says PASTE LONG URL, then click create, that is it you will get the link like this one. bit.ly/37zF3mW

Drive traffic to your affiliate link

We are going to use Facebook to drive traffic to your affiliate offer.

Facebook is huge for free and paid traffic, but today I am just going to explain how you can generate free traffic from Facebook.

Basically, there are two ways to generate free traffic from Facebook, using your own Facebook profile and creating a Facebook group.

Generating free traffic by just using your profile.

Generating traffic by using your profile is the simplest way to generate traffic from Facebook, you can do it in just two steps.

Create and optimize your Facebook profile

Facebook traffic

 

You can use your current Facebook account or you can create a new one just for your online business, this depends on you.

Once you create your account, you will need to make sure you use your real name and photo, this will increase the credibility, also make sure that you add your affiliate link on your profile, you can add a small caption and a call to action, for example, I will help you to make $100 per day online, click the link below.

2) Find big Facebook accounts in your niche and start interacting with their content, leave comments, likes and share their content, look to people who reply to your comments, and add them as friends ( some of them will add you first).

Some of these people will start coming to your Facebook profile to find more about you, and since you optimized your profile in the first part, some of them will click on the affiliate link on your page, some of them will buy from you.

This method works very well even if you have zero experience, let them come to you, do not spam them, do not inbox them but if someone inbox you with a question reply to them and build some connections.

What type of results to expect?

Depending on how the offer converts, you should expect one sale for around 10 people who click on your affiliate link.

How to increase your affiliate sales?

All friends that you will be adding are interested in making money online when you find a good product that teaches people a specific method of making money online, you can write a simple post like this, ‘I found a way to make money on Facebook without building a blog, making videos or building a list, if do you want to learn how, comment ‘I want it’ below’.

Some people will comment ‘I want it ‘, all you need to do is to send them an inbox with a simple message, here is the method I was talking about in the post, and then send them your affiliate link.

What next?

When you start to make money, you will need to start to build your email list and invest some money to buy traffic.

To build an email you will need an autoresponder and a landing page builder.

For an autoresponder, I will recommend Aweber.

For a landing page builder, I will recommend Clickfunnels.

Final Word

So these are 7 steps on how to make money with Warrior Plus, if do you have any questions let me know so that I can help you. Take massive action and you will see results.

10 Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Affiliate Link Through Instagram

Instagram is one of the best platforms to get traffic, free or paid, in this post, I am going to share with you 10 ways to drive traffic to your affiliate link through Instagram for free.

I have used this method to drive traffic to my Clickbank affiliate products and I have very good results, that is why I decided to start another page and share the tips with you.

If you do not have any offer to promote to your Instagram page, you can pick one from Clickbank, I go into detail on how to choose the best Clickbank product to promote here.

10 ways to drive traffic to your affiliate link through Instagram

10 ways to drive traffic to your affiliate link through Instagram

1) Make Your Name SEO Friendly

This is crucial when naming your page make sure that it reflects your business or what is your page is about, stop using random names, be intentional and smart about this.

Keep your username whatever you’d like, but when it comes to your NAME (the bold text right above your bio, change it to something that clearly describes the goal of your page:

-Passive Income Jet

-Numerology Secrets

-Morning Meditation

-Affiliate Marketing Tips

-BBQ Aficionado 

-Retirement Income Strategies

I just created a brand new Instagram page, please follow it here.

 

2) Keep Your Bio Short, Sweet, & Precise 

Before people start to follow you, they will check out your bio, in order to attract the right people who are interested in what you have to say make sure that your bio is short and straight to the point.

Don’t feel the need to overload it with emojis or give yourself a dozen titles:

For example.

I help complete beginners make money online through affiliate marketing.”

I help complete bloggers to make a living just using their blog.”

I help businesses to generate leads online.”

 

Just find a simple statement that explains what do you do online.

 

3) Use a Preset Filter On Your Photos

This will help you keep your page consistent without overthinking it when it comes time to post. Use VSCO or the Lightroom App.

4) Use Canva to create content for your page.

Inspirational Quotes and posts are doing well on Instagram. Hop over to Canva and check out their premade templates and plug your favorite quotes in.

If you don’t have design experience or a background in graphics, you’re going to love the simplicity of Canva.

5) Use Your Face, Not Your Logo

instagram

People like to follow and buy from other people, yes you got a great logo and you love it, I get this but if you put your own image on your page, people will trust it more and will click on your affiliate link.

Even sometimes post personal photos on your page, this will help you to connect with like-minded people in your niche.

6) Don’t Use Super-Long Links in Your Bio

I do not recommend using super long links like affiliate links on your bio, first, there is limited space for a link on your bio, second, they look ugly.

You can use Bit.ly for shortening your links as I used here below or If you have a WordPress blog you can install a redirect plugin ( my favorite is a pretty link) and use it to redirect your links. This will go a long way and make your link look professional and well planned.

instagram

7) Use #Hashtags

Before each post, you need to find hashtags that are related to your content and include them in your post.

Sometimes I use them in a description and other times I use them as a first comment, this will help your page to grow faster and hence generating more traffic to your affiliate link.

hashtag

8) Engage with Your Audience Daily

This is huge, your page is new, you have few followers and get few comments, do your best to answer all of them.

People like to feel that their comment is heard, so while you do not get a lot of traffic yet, try to get involved with your audience daily, like their comments and respond to their questions, this will take make Instagram suggest your page to more users and your page will increase rapidly.

9) Comment on bigger pages

If you don’t have a lot of traction on your own page, find accounts that are similar to yours but bigger, all you need to do is to engage with their audience. 

Many big accounts don’t have the time to answer all of the questions underneath their posts so this is a chance for YOU to provide some value there and get some traction.

10) Do this every day

Most people post once per week and they ask themselves why their pages are not growing, if you want to get a lot of traffic and make sales every day you need to start doing this every day.

If this is a brand new page, I will suggest posting something 5 to 10 times a day, then use the rest of the time to interact with all people who are engaging with your content.

Final word

That is it, those are 10 ways to drive traffic to your affiliate link through Instagram for free. I hope these tips help you with your Instagram Accounts today.

6: You can choose to trigger the campaign for all subscribers or for subscribers who match certain criteria.  To trigger a campaign for specific subscribers, click the “Add filter” button to the right.

Add campaign filter

7 After you’ve chosen to start your campaign for all subscribers or for a specific filter, add your “Send Message” actions to the campaign canvas.

On the right-hand side, it will appear a small tab with a create a message drop menu, if you click that one you will get three options, drag& drop, plain text, and HTML, just pick drag &drop.

save

Copy and paste the subject line and email, then click save and exit, guess what? you have your welcome email.

Change your affiliate link

When your prospects click on GET STARTED TODAY, you want two things to happen, one to add their email to your autoresponder (you build your list and they get the first message as we just added) and another thing you need to send them to the affiliate offer, so let change that link and put yours.

In order to do that we need to edit a link on your squeeze page.

Go to your funnels =>https://clickfunnels.com/funnels

Select the funnel you just downloaded.

Click on the edit page button

Click on the SETTING tab and then on the drop menu click on general

Paste that link where it says on submit go to, then click the big save button you’re done for this time.

submitt

Cloak your link

After creating your squeeze page, connecting it to your autoresponder you need to cloak your link, we are going to use Bitly for this.

link

After setting up everything you will get your squeeze page link, I do not recommend to directly promote this link, I will recommend to cloak it.

In order to cloak your affiliate link, I will recommend using bit.ly. Just go to bit.ly, create an account (it is free ).

bitly

Click on the create button, copy the long ugly affiliate link that you got from Clickbank and paste it where it says PASTE LONG URL, then click create, that is it you will get the link like this one. bit.ly/37zF3mW

Step 3: Creating Website Traffic

The best squeeze page is worth nothing without visitors. There are different ways to get website visitors. This time I used Twitter.

Create and Optimize your twitter account

Now you have the product and the link you need to create a twitter account that you can use for your affiliate promotions if you have one you can use that one if you do not just create a new one, it is easy and very quick.

Just go to Twitter.com

Twitter will ask you to log in or create a new account, depending on your situation you can log in or create a new account, to create a new account they may ask you a phone number, email address, and your name.

For twitter username, I will recommend finding a name that is short and easier to remember, you can just use your name or pen name if you wish, if the username is taken, try to find a new one and avoid using numbers at the end (it creates mistrust), you need to create a profile that people can trust.

Optime your profile

Use your real photo

I found it easier to attract new followers when I use my real photo, I will recommend you to do the same. never leave the default profile photo.

Create a cover image.

I use a free tool called canva.com to create my twitter cover images, it is free, easy, and quick, again do not leave the default cover image.

Write a short bio and put your link on it.

Here is where things start to get interesting, you will need to create a short bio to introduce new people to your account and then at the end of it you can include your affiliate link.

You need to do this as most people before deciding to follow you, they can go on your profile and writing a good bio with a link on it will increase the chance of them to follow you and click the link.

here is my optimized twitter profile.

twitter page

Write your first tweet and pin it.

Before starting to follow anyone or having any followers I will recommend that you write your first tweet and pin it.

tweet

Write a short email with a call to action, include your affiliate link and then tweet it. After tweeting it, click a drop menu on your tweet and then click on the pin to your profile as shown in the image below. That is it.

Start following other Twitter accounts

After optimizing your twitter profile, now it is time to start following other Twitter accounts that might be interested in what you are promoting.

But before going into details on how to do this please follow my account @sekimarketing

Where to find people who might need your products?

You need to find out what are big accounts on your niche. In this example, I am promoting 12 minutes affiliate and this account is dedicated to all people who want to make money online via affiliate marketing.

So the first question I will ask my self is what are the influencers in affiliate marketing? Most people must be following them.

Big affiliate marketers, like Russel Brunson, big tools like Aweber, and Clickfunnels are the influencers and most of your audience must be following them.

The idea here is to steal followers from them, this is what I mean, go to the big affiliate marketing account, click on followers, and start following those people.

russel

For example, if I was targeting Russell Brunson followers, I would go to his account and I will see who is following him and I will start following those people.

The idea here is that if these people are interested in Russell tweets they are interested in marketing and becoming online entrepreneurs, some of them might be interested in my content.

If your account is brand new, I will recommend starting following 50 people per day in the first week then increase the number to 100, then 150 up to 400, Twitter allows you to follows up to 400 accounts per day.

Some of these people will start following you back and if you do this in less than a month you can have more than 1000 followers.

Unfollow users who do not follow you back

Twitter wants you to have a good ratio of people you are following and people who follow you, by using this method most people won’t follow you back, what you want to do is to start unfollowing people who are not following you back.

Free tool to follow and unfollow account on twitter

Following and unfollowing account on twitter can be a tedious activity, the good news is that I found a free tool that can help you to achieve that without hustling.

It is a free Chrome and Firefox extension, all you need to do it to go the following link and add an extension to your browser.

https://www.clemensteichmann.com/superpowers-for-twitter

With the free version, you can follow and unfollow 50 accounts at a time but if you refresh it the count starts over.

NOTE:

Please carefully read About the following on Twitter. If you do long and frequent mass actions, your account may get suspended. Usually, you can unlock your account again. To prevent further account suspension, you can adjust the options “Interval (seconds)” and “Limit” accordingly. You can also do fewer mass actions. Note: The extension pauses automatically when the Twitter follow limit exceeded.

In order to change the setting, follow and unfollow limits, click on the Superpowers for twitter and then options.

How to follow accounts using this extension.

Just find an account that post content related to your niche and click on the followers if the extension is installed then you will see the follow all button, click that one, and it will start following all those accounts without you doing anything.

If you have a free account it will follow 50 accounts if you have a pro version you can follow 400 accounts (twitter follow limit per day).

How to unfollow accounts using this extension.

In order to unfollow account which did not follow you back in a given period of time ( this depends on your settings mine is 5 days), just go to your account then click following, then the magic unfollows all button will appear if you click that it will unfollow all account which do you follow but are not following back, this way you keep the ration near to 1:1.

unfollow

Start giving value

The secrets to free traffic are to add value to the community, start posting tips and information that your audience might be interested in. I found out that motivational quotes work almost for every niche on twitter, find them, and post 5 to 10 times a day, the more the better.

Interact with other users

When you start getting followers, you need to start to retweet or like their content, and in exchange, they will do the same to you, this will give your account exposer and your account will start growing organically ( without you following other people).

Ask questions and respond to the question they ask, some of them they will ask you what you do and you will explain to them that you’re an affiliate marketer and if they are interested you can tell them how to get started if they say yes, you send them your affiliate link.

You can tweak it a bit if you’re in a different niche.

How to Make Money With Twitter and Digistore24?

When we optimized your account, you created the bio and the pinned tweet with your affiliate link, these two will be the main source of traffic, many people will see your links and few will click on one of the two links (they go to the same squeeze page).

After they are opt-in they will be redirected to the affiliate offer, in this case, it is a $1 trial ( you get nothing if they buy) but after one month if they want to continue to receive the training they will be charged $39.95 and you will be paid 90% of that, that is around $35 per each free trial (some will cancel and some will stay, it is a numbers game).

How to Make Money With Twitter and Clickbank for Free in 2020

In this example, I got 515 people who visited my profile, you can get 100 times that if you do this consistently. and make some cash in the process.

how to make money with twitter and clickbank

Another way to make money will be through tweeting, I will recommend tweeting directly to your squeeze page link once in a while, I would say for every 5 value-added tweets on goes directly to your affiliate link.

You can make money also by sending direct messages to people, I do not recommend using automated software for this, as it can cause your account to get banned.

What do I recommend to ask a question on one of your tweets, for example, you can ask who wants a done for you system that takes 12 minutes to set up and can help you to make up to $460.02 per day? comment yes if you’re interested.

Then you can send your affiliate link to every person who comments yes to your question, you can say a simple thing like Hey [name], Thank you for engaging with my post, here you go this is the method I was talking about in the question.

This is very targeted traffic, if you can send 100 messaged like this I am sure at least 35 of them will opt-in, remember for each one who takes the $1 offer you will have potential to make $35 per month. Just 10 of them you´re making $350 per month.

How long it will take to make a sale with this method?

I know this is the question are you asking right now, the honest answer is that I do not know, it depends on a lot of factors, like how the product convert, how much effort you put in this, the quality of the traffic. I have done this in the weight loss niche, make money online niche, numerology niche. I generally make a sale between 10 to 20 opt-ins, so here the question is how much clicks you can generate per day? That will be your limit.

When I tried this, I made 4 sales in 10 days.

proof

Do this method work everywhere in the world

The answer is yes, as long as you have a twitter and Digistore24 account.

Does this method work for other networks apart from Digistore24?

Of course, you can replicate this method to make money using an affiliate network and any product.

Final words

This is how to use Digistore24 and how to make money with Digistore24 in 2020 as an affiliate marketer, I am using the same method to make money online, yes it won’t be overnight and it might take time to get consistency sales, but if you follow the instructions and take action every day you will make some cash.

Simple Affiliate Marketing Money Formula

Most people who make money by selling other people’s products or their own products have one thing in common, they follow what I call the affiliate marketing money formula.

The formula is so simple, if you follow it, you will start making some serious cash online for yourself, let us investigate it.

Simple Affiliate Marketing Money Formula

S+C+E=$

Where S stands for subscribers, C stands for Clicks, E stands for Earning Per Click (EPC) and $ stands for money.

Just improving one of the three elements on the left-hand side of the equation will lead to a massive change in your monthly income through affiliate marketing.

Let us look deep on each of the three of them and how you can improve each one of these.

Subscribers

They say the money is in the list and this is still true, most people who make money online have their own email list, this is the first step you need to do if do you want to create a passive income online.

Meaning of building your list.

To build an email list means to collect email addresses from people who visit your squeeze pages or websites, you need to provide them with something of value to them and in exchange, they will give you an email address.

The simplest way to start building an email list is to build a squeeze page. I use Clickfunnels to build my squeeze pages and Convertkit as an autoresponder.

Simple Affiliate Marketing Money Formula

After building a squeeze page you need to send people to it, you can use either free methods or paid methods.

The fastest way to send traffic to your squeeze page is to pay for it and if you’re just new you can start with solo ads.

The best place to start buying traffic is Udimi.

It is estimated that you can make around $1 per subscriber per month, some make more some less but that is the average.

Now let say you send 100 people to your squeeze page and 20 of them subscribe to your email list, now you have 20 people on your email list.

How to increase your subscriber’s count

Send more people to it

Obviously the first way to increase your subscriber’s count is by sending more people to it, using the same example as above, if you send 1000 people to your squeeze page you should get around 200 new subscribers.

Improve your conversion rate

In the example above your squeeze page is converting only 20 percent, what if you can change a headline or a call to action and increase it to 50%, by sending the same amount to your squeeze page you will get more subscribers.

Clicks

Now let us look to the second variable in the equation, Clicks. I am not talking about the clicks you get from your traffic source, here I am talking about the number of clicks you get from your mailing list.

For each email, you send to your list how many clicks do you get? For me I get between 10% to 15% of subscribers to click to my emails, some get more some get less that is how it works.

personal

If you are getting a low number, there are some things you can do in order to get more clicks per each email you send to your list.

Get more people to open your email

People will not click on the link in your email unless they open it, you need to increase the number of people who open your emails.

You can do this by improving your subject lines, try different subjects, and those subjects that are getting more clicks to use them frequently.

If you are on other people list, keep your eye on which subject lines intrigued you to open the email and model from them.

Give more value

Make sure that most emails you send to your list contain sum actionable information that they can actually use and improve their life if in each email you focus on selling people will stop opening and reading your emails.

Build trust with your subscribers

One mistake most online entrepreneurs make is to treat their email list as just a number, remember these are real people with real problems, interact with them, reply to their emails and treat them with respect and in exchange, they will trust you and follow your advice.

The E

The last variable on this equation is the E, E stands for Earning Per Click, how much money do you make for each click do you send to an offer?

How to calculate EPC?

To calculate the EPC just use this simple formula, take all the money you make in the offer divide by the amount of click you sent to that offer, for example, let say you find a Clickbank product and you wrote an email to your list and 100 people clicked on it, you go back to your Clickbank dashboard and you find out that you make $200 from that offer then you are earning per click is 200/100 which is $2.

You send 200 clicks you make $400, that is why the S and C are important to this equation.

How to improve your EPC

Send relevant offers

If you have a list of weight loss and you try to sell them a product that is about building blogs probably no one is going to buy it.

Sending a high-quality product that solves your audience problems is very important to increase the amount you earn per each click you send to your offer.

Use a strong call to action

In order to increase the number of sales you need to use a strong call to action, most people in life are used to someone telling them what to do next, you need to apply this to your business and tell your subscribers what to do (respectively).

Use presales page

You can create a page to presale the products especially if you are an affiliate, On the page, you can write or firm a video explaining to your audience what they are getting and more importantly how it can benefit them.

Offer bonuses

The most effective way to improve your EPC is to offer bonuses to people who buy through your affiliate link. Just do not buy junk PLR products and give your customer.

The best way to do this is to find what you have that is a complement to the product and offer that as a bonus for everyone is purchasing through your link.

Final words

That is the simple affiliate marketing money formula, all you need to do is to start improving one part of the equation then another then the last one, if you manage to improve 10% in each of three variable of the equation you will triple your income in record time.

Thank you for reading.

Best Affiliate Marketing Forums

Best Affiliate Marketing Forums

 

I am a big fan of forums I think in forums I can learn a lot and also I can use them to drive traffic to my blog or squeeze pages. In this post, I am going to give you a list of best affiliate marketing forums and how I think about them.

What is a forum?

In very simple words a forum is a place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.

So an affiliate marketing forum is a place where a bunch of people meets and discuss a lot of things related to affiliate marketing and making money online topics in general.

Are forums still relevant?

There are some gurus out there saying that forums are dead, this is not true, as an online entrepreneur you will need to have a place where you can learn things, you can share your ideas with other people and forums are great for that.

Why you should join a forum?

If you’re like me there is a chance that most people around you are not entrepreneurs and becoming an online entrepreneur can become very lonely, you don’t have anyone who understands what you are talking about.

Joining a forum can be a good way to combat that as you will meet with a like-minded people who are on the same journey as you are.

You can use forums to learn things that are happening in the industry, you can use forums to show your expertise and gain trust in the market place also you can use them to drive a massive amount of traffic to your online platforms like blogs, squeeze pages, YouTube channels and social media.

How many forums I should join.

I am a member of three forums, in fact I tried a lot of the forums I am going to mention below but because I have a limited amount of time in a day and there are many other things to do I decided to stay active in just three of them and I don’t post content on them every day. So for me, I think you should pick one or two forums and become a very active member.

After saying that let us dive in and see what are the best affiliate marketing forums.

Warrior Forum

warrior forum

For me, Warrior Forum is the best digital marketing forum, it is a powerful, interactive, and very useful forum for the affiliates who want to make money online. It’s also a marketplace, as well.

If you have to join only one forum this should be it. It covers all topics related to internet marketing from SEO to affiliate, social, blogging and much more.

It’s an active forum for all serious affiliates and marketing experts with threads on all sorts of effective web marketing, networking and sales of product and service, and much more.

It offers an interactive platform for discussion on affiliate marketing. You can learn new trends in affiliate marketing and can share your experiences with other fellow members.

Members go on to discuss online money making topics. You can get guidance from industry veterans. Beginners in affiliate marketing can learn effective affiliate marketing techniques.

It is free to join Warrior Forum but they have an upgraded membership that they call warrior room and there you will find one of the best content in affiliate marketing.

Affilorama

affilorama forum

I am a huge admirer of everything on Affilorama, for it is a must-have resource for all new online entrepreneurs.

The best advice I can give a new affiliate marketer is that go to Affilorama claim their free tools and affiliate marketing lessons, then become active to their forum, these guys they have everything you need to succeed online.

In this forum, you will find discussions about affiliate marketing, build money making websites, SEO, article marketing etc.

affLIFT

best affiliate marketing forums

affLIFT is a premium forum, you have to pay to be a member, but their price is very affordable, it offers more value for your price.

I am an active member of this forum, so for sure I can tell you that their content is very up to date and valuable, if you’re teachable and you can take action, this is the place you should be but if you don’t want to learn and take action probably you should first concentrate in free forums because you will be wasting your money.

They focus mainly on affiliate marketing and CPA offers, they teach push notifications, PPC, Facebook marketing and other affiliate marketing related topics.

With affLIFT, you can race ahead and profit from your affiliate marketing efforts. It’s a useful platform for the beginners as well as the professionals who are already making money with affiliate marketing.

affLIFT has much useful information. It has helpful and friendly members of its community.

 

AffiliateFix

affiliate fix

This is one of the most popular affiliate marketing forums, I joined it when I just started although I don’t go there anymore I still think it is a great forum simply because it is free and has a very active community.

If you’re new to affiliate marketing this can be a great place to start because their focus is changing newbie affiliate marketers into experts in their respective areas.

Digital Point

digital point

Digital Point is one of the oldest affiliate marketing forums. It’s a huge international forum where affiliate marketers from different parts of the world gather to discuss ideas and put up things for sales like domains websites, graphics, articles, eBooks, and templates.

It is one of the best places for discussion on affiliate marketing. They cover different affiliate marketing related subjects such as search engine, design & development, business & marketing, development & trade. You can even buy and sell digital products on the Digital Point Marketplace.

Wealthy Affiliate

WA

Wealthy Affiliate is one of the biggest affiliate marketing communities online, when I was just starting online I joined them.

When it comes to creating review blogs and ranking them on search engines I think they’re the best.

They give you a powerful keyword tool and a web hosting, they offer a free trial for their premium service and they have great support.

If do you want to learn about creating affiliate blogs and raking them in order to get free traffic, this is the best place to start.

Why I canceled my WA membership

I had two problems with them and that is why I decided to cancel my membership with them, the first problem is that you get all those things I mentioned above only if you’re a premium member (it is not a bad thing) but they market them as if you will get those even if you’re a free member (it is misleading and I didn’t like it).

The second problem I had with them is that they teach a badmouth marketing, basically they teach their affiliate to call everything online a scam, if you don’t believe me just google any program and add a word scam to it you will find out most of the sites in the first page are from people who promote Wealth Affiliate (which indicates their strong knowledge in ranking websites) and all they will do is to write bad things about another program, call it a scam and recommend Wealth Affiliate.

Yes, I know that many of the training a not worth but I am a firm believer of that talking bad about another person or program is not a great way to promote yourself or your products.

After saying that I must say that WA is a great community and they have some great training for premium members if you don’t mind negative promotion tactics you should join them. Just don’t fall for their free membership.

You can sign up as a free member of Wealthy Affiliate (I don’t recommend if do you want to check them out better get a premium membership free trial). However, there’s also the opportunity for paid subscribers that is best for its growing community.

Forum topics range from SEO, Video Marketing, PPC, WordPress, Affiliate Programs, and more.

.

Blackhatworld

BlackHatWorld

This is also a huge affiliate marketing community, there are a lot of affiliate marketers who use black hat methods to make money online (hence the name).

These people think outside the box, inside this forum you will find anything from how to rank your blog in google using black hat methods, adult niche, and all things that people do on affiliate marketing but they don’t talk about them in public, you can even find links to download some of the paid courses for free.

If do you want to check them out, go and check them out, but I won’t recommend them as your long term solution because most of the methods you will learn from this forum can help you to make a quick buck but they can hurt you and your business in a long run.

Sitepoint

SitePoint is one of the best affiliate marketing forums, it is one of the most favorite affiliate marketing forums for affiliates and merchants.

In this forum, you will find a variety of topics from online marketing, affiliate marketing, various designs, and programming. It’s a great solution area for the affiliates to harvest results through effective networking.

Final words

There are a lot of affiliate marketing forums free and paid ones, I tried most of them and I can say they have similar attributes to the one I posted above, if you think I have been unfair and there are other best affiliate marketing forums than those I posted let me know in the comment section below.

How to Find an Affiliate Marketing Niche

One of the most challenging decisions that you’ll have to make when you want to start an affiliate marketing business is deciding which niche you are going to work in.

To select a viable niche for your business, you’re going to have to do your due diligence and conduct research. If you are struggling to make a decision, here are five steps you can take to help you find your affiliate marketing niche.

How to Find an Affiliate Marketing Niche

Determine Your Interests and Passions

Create a list of your top ten passion areas and topical interests. Starting an online business is challenging and more than likely it’s going to test you early on. If you are a first-time business owner, it is essential for you to work in an area that you care about so you don’t lose motivation when you face your first challenges.

Determine Target Customer’s Problems

Once you’ve decided on your top ten interests and passions, you can start narrowing down your choices. Start by determining the challenges and problems that the target customers in the niche are experiencing. Once you know what problems they are facing, you can figure out if you can come up with a product or service to help solve those problems.

Research and Study the Competition

The presence of healthy competition can show you that you’ve found a profitable niche. However, it is essential that you thoroughly analyze the competitions’ websites. You need to see if there is an opportunity for you to stand out from the crowd.

Determine the Potential Profitability

After following the previous three steps, you should have a good idea of what niche market you are going to enter. Now you need to get an idea of how much money you can potentially make in your chosen market. A great place to start your search is ClickBank (https://clickbank.com).

Start by browsing the top products in your niche then make a note of the price points of the products. If you don’t find many offers, it’s not a good sign, and you should consider a different niche.

Take Action

While there isn’t a perfect process for finding an affiliate niche market that is profitable, these steps will help you get on the right path. Once you’ve confirmed the viability and profitability of your chosen niche market, you can start developing your website and creating content.

Anyone can create a successful, long-term online business from scratch. You need to do the research and hard work that is required to get started.

 

6 step process to make more money on your business

6 step process to make more money on your business

It is a known fact that more than 90% of people who try to make money online fails, there are more reasons for that, in this post, I am going to discuss 6 step process to make more money on your business.

Today I want to talk to you So let’s talk about the solution to go from not making money to making the type of money YOU want. The key to making money or doing anything you want to achieve is focusing on simplicity.

Step 1: Decide what it is you actually want.

Most people see how much money I make online so they say “I want to make that much too”.This isn’t realistic and that’s why you’re not making money.

Decide right now how much do you need to live a good life for you? Comparing yourself to me or anyone else is setting you back. Focus on your needs. Once you know how much you want to make, move on to step two.

Step 2: Figure out what you will promote.

Let’s face it, no money is made without selling something. You need to choose a product that will really help your prospects, don’t just promote a product because it will make you the most money.

Also, keep in mind that you must use the product yourself before you recommend it to anyone else, for me personally I will never recommend a product I will never use myself.

You can promote the tools you use on your business, products that helped you to solve a certain problem, if you’re in make money online niche and you have no idea what to promote, you can click here and get my free training series in which I reveal the best affiliate program you can promote.

Step 3: Make a daily plan.

You shouldn’t be doing much in your business. I know this may go against what you think, but I don’t do as much as you may think. I do the same things daily.

Bruce Lee says “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks. I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times”.I live and die by this principle.

Figure out what traffic source you will focus on, what offer you will promote, how many
leads you need to generate daily and how many sales you need to make daily to reach your goal.

Two sales a day with this program will easily net you a 20k + a month income. Focus on just a few things daily and get so damn good at them no one can compete.

First, you will see a little traffic, then it gets bigger and bigger doing that traffic source daily. First, you will have one sale here and there then it becomes daily. When you do the money making activities daily it compounds fast and things kick into overdrive.

Step 4: Take daily action on your plan.

This may sound silly, but just starting a new business isn’t going to do a thing for you. Set your plan and work your plan daily. It doesn’t take long if you follow your plan!

Step 5: Measure your progress.

Do things for at least 30 days before changing anything. Success is about habits, not about a secret system or method.

Do things for 30 days, reflect if what you’re doing is working. Figure out what’s working and do more of it, tweak what isn’t working to get better results.

When you build on your daily habits your income compounds fast. This is also why I work a few hours a day now and get focused work done and get big results while other people can work endlessly and barely move the needle.

Step 6: Have faith in yourself!

Most people don’t start their business or do the things they know they need to do because of a lack of belief. They do something for 3 or 4 days and then quit and say it’s not working.

It’s not the business that doesn’t work, it’s the person. If other people are getting results in a business and you’re not it’s because they’re doing what needs to be done and working their plan.

If even ten people are making lot’s of money in something that’s all the proof I need to go in and dominate and get my piece of the pie.

I don’t care about the broke mediocre people who make excuses and don’t get results. I look at how much money people are making in business and tell myself if they’re doing it” so can I”.

Making money is all your belief system. When you believe it’s possible for you then you will stop making excuses and put in the work. If you don’t believe it’s possible for you then you need to stop right now and ask yourself.

Final words.

In affiliate marketing world it means that the attraction of new buzzwords, trends, channels, products, and new system, you know, today there is a product launch, you jump in it and before you start promoting it, there is another product launch that seems better and you’re on it as well, this cycle can go on for years and most people end up quitting because none of these programs will work for them.

Affiliate marketing is all about using current technology and trends to create a plan and outsmart the competition online. It takes lots of research and paying attention to what today’s audience is looking for in a particular niche to decide what goes into a strategy.

Unfortunately, many marketers fall for “shiny object syndrome.” This means that they are attracted to new buzzwords, trends, and channels and feel that they must use them on their target audience. Here are some things to think about before adding these new concepts to your marketing plan.

How to avoid shiny object syndrome

Concentrate on your audience

While “shiny object syndrome” can be fun, exciting, and unexpected, the problem lies with the fact that the marketers that jump at a chance to use them don’t take time to see if these are things that the target audience is really interested in.

Just the fact that they are new and “shiny” means that they are “hot” and should be used to blow away both the audience and their competitors. This can backfire on the marketer if it’s not interesting to the audience, or worse yet, it prevents them from getting the valuable information that they need.

Readers will leave sites in a heartbeat if they can’t get the information that they need, no matter how “hip” the marketing is.

Focus on your current business plan

Consider your current business strategy before trying new concepts. Think about the problems that you are trying to solve, how you reach your customers, the number of visitors that use your information, your resources, and whether you are considered an expert.

If these new concepts do not fit within each one of the goals that you have for these considerations, the chance of having your marketing plan, and ultimately your audience, turn against you. On the flip side, if you don’t completely understand these considerations beforehand, the chances of the new concepts being added to your plan will most likely fail.

Do not use tools just because they are new

Do not use new tools just to use new tools. For example, just because a new social media site comes out does not mean that you have to jump on it right away.

It may not even be appropriate for your target niche and when it comes to marketing, your time is precious. Don’t waste time on items that won’t help your business. Before you start adding anything new to your plan, you must make sure your current plan is already succeeding. Adding something new without understanding why your current one is failing will most likely still result in failure.

Be sure everything is in place for success before you start adding and shuffling things around in your marketing plan. Be sure that whatever methods you decide to use are also appropriate for targeting your particular audience. For instance, you are targeting women of a certain age, make sure that whatever is in your strategy is appropriate for that audience.

Final words

Those are three tips on how to avoid the shiny object syndrome, create a marketing plan and stick to it, as an online entrepreneur is of utmost importance to not fall for “shiny object syndrome.” You are more than allowed to use new things in your strategy, but you must consider your current one, what you are trying to achieve with your plan overall, and if what you want to add or change is appropriate to your audience.
