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.

profile

 

 

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.

twitter

This is an example of my unfollow settings

fo

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).

sec

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.

The 5 Excuses That Keep Marketers Broke

The 5 Excuses That Keep Marketers Broke

They say that you can make either excuses or results but not both, most marketers who are not making any money they have a list of excuses, and these are 5 excuses that keep marketers broke.

Need help forming habits? Believe it or not, there are people everywhere that are breaking away and making new patterns in their lives every single day.

For as many people that seem stuck on the treadmill of wild promises, brief struggles, and regression to the mean…

People who have “been” stuck are getting unstuck and experiencing fabulous results. That’s usually because they’re breaking free of excuses like these:

I Don’t Have The Time

If you don’t have time, build a plan that lets you leverage your money. Then squeeze in ten minutes per day. No matter how strictly regimented your time is, you can afford to give five or ten minutes to your work.

It’s amazing how much progress you can make if you devote ten uninterrupted minutes to something. When you aren’t Facebooking, Tweeting, checking email or talking to someone else, you can get in a zone of uninterrupted productivity.

I Don’t Have The Money

Again, build a plan that leverages your free time. Write articles. Comment on blogs, create products, make contacts. For most marketers, connections are the most valuable thing that they have, and this can be done without money. All it takes is persistence and the ability to set a positive habit.

At every stage of our lives, there’s a tradeoff between financial resources and time resources. The best people make the most of whatever situation they are in.

I Don’t Have All The Knowledge And Skills

Look for plans that don’t require a big list of technical skills. There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Almost anyone can set up an account on Twitter, or make a video for YouTube.

Find people who fit in your “blind spot,” people with skills and knowledge that compliment yours. Reach out to them and work on a project together. By pooling your resources, you cut down on the piles and piles of work that’s needed to get any project off of the ground.

Just get started, that’s the most important thing.

My Family Doesn’t Support Me

That’s very tough. One of the things you can you do is rev them up in stages. Sell your friends and family in the same way you’d sell something to someone else.

Start with the emotional stuff – tell them how it feels when you haven’t reached your goal (whatever that goal might be). Make sure that they’re on board with the idea that something is amiss and needs to change.

Then start discussing the causes of that problem, and how your solution will solve it. Chances are that somewhere along the line, there will be some objections – and you shouldn’t brush those aside, because they’re from people that know you and have lived with you.

But you’ve got to figure out what those objections are and address them, and dialogue is the only real way to do that.

If none of this works, you might have to put their concerns to the side and start educating them along the way. Nothing works to assuage people’s concerns than seeing you make small successes, so start by focusing on the fundamentals and improving your ability to see things through to completion.

It’s Just Too Hard

Here is a scary technique that will help you see how easy your current situation is. Imagine if things got worse. If you lost your internet access if your kids got sick if you lost your job or got stuck in a job that requires too much work for not enough money. Imagine if your eyes stopped working as well, or you got carpal tunnel syndrome.

Wouldn’t you be grateful for the opportunities that you have right now? Wouldn’t you look back and wished that you had the chance to focus, to give everything you have in preparation for future disaster?

Apply that intensity and that focus right now.

Final words

That is it, those are 5 excuses that keep marketers broke, stop making excuses and start producing results, if do you want my help on how to make money online feel free to contact me via the contact form below, or just leave a comment below and I will get back to you.

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.

So that is it, those are 6 step process to make more money on your business, if you don’t know where to start your online journey or you started already but going nowhere, i will like to invite you to take this free training series that will teach you all the steps that I talked about and also I will give you the system I am using to make money online selling other people products. click the following link for the access. https://sekidotcom.com

 

How to Avoid Shiny Object Syndrome

One of the reasons why most people fail in affiliate marketing and in any type of business is this disease called shiny object syndrome, it is a disease that affects all entrepreneurs and it can be a dream killer, before going on how to avoid it let us look what it is.

What is Shine Object Syndrome?

shiny object syndrome or SOS is defined as the attraction to objects that exhibit a glassy, polished, gleaming or otherwise shiny appearance. Something as simple as a reflection in your peripheral vision may easily distract your attention.

How to Avoid Shiny Object Syndrome

 

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.

Solid Principles For Affiliate Marketing

 

Solid-Principles-For-Affiliate-Marketing

It is no secret that affiliate marketing can be a pathway to great success in the business world these days. Times have changed, and traditional marketing methods are quickly becoming obsolete.

Getting onboard with affiliate marketing means understanding the foundational principles that make it work. Read some ideas here about how to build solid principles for affiliate marketing, one that you can build upon to reach your goals.

Content is the king

You have heard it said many times: content is king. This is particularly true on the Internet, where millions of websites compete for attention. Everyone has a message that they want to get out there, so the “information highway” is inundated with content.

In order for yours to rise above the fray and grab the attention of potential customers, it has to have substance. Just throwing out some words with SEO content is not enough anymore.

Know your target audience

Know who your audience is and target your website specifically to meet their needs. Understand how they think and what they are wanting from you. If you do not identify this and provide the content that reaches out to them, they will just get it from your competitors.

Put yourself in their shoes and think like they would think when searching for what you have to offer. Use specific words and phrases that indicate you have a working knowledge of the field you represent. If you come across as merely a salesperson without a tie to the product, you could lose out to someone that they feel more comfortable with.

Be honest

Be honest with those you do business with. Do not hide any affiliations, because it will eventually come out, and you will have lost a measure of trust. Transparency is always valued, even if it leads to the loss of sale occasionally.

You want to develop a reputation for being a forthright and dependable person who answers questions directly. If you have affiliations that are questionable and you do not want to disclose them, this is a reason to reconsider your tie to that organization.

If you absolutely have to continue being affiliated with them, then disclose it along with a statement of support or explanation of any questionable activities.

Only promote high-quality products

Be very careful about which products you choose to promote. Remember that your reputation is more than a quick sale or two. You are in this for the long run, so choose products that you actually believe in and ones that you are using yourself. A good rule of thumb is to ask whether you would give one to your mother or your brother. If the answer is no, then explore other options.

Final words

That is it, those are solid principles for affiliate marketing, these principles are ones that may cause you to develop more slowly in your affiliating marketing business, but they will also ensure that you have longevity. Incorporate them into your business planning today.

Clickbank Gravity Vs Popularity…which one do you go for?

Clickbank Gravity Vs Popularity...which one do you go for?

Are you curious to know the difference between Clickbank gravity vs. popularity? Clickbank what does gravity mean in the first place?

I know this sounds newbie’s question, but many people even experienced marketers forget or confuse the difference between Gravity and Popularity in ClickBank, in this post, I am going to go through the difference between Clickbank gravity and popularity and which one you should follow when it comes to picking a Clickbank offer to promote.

What is Clickbank Gravity?

The Definition of ClickBank Gravity

According to the information on the ClickBank website:

Gravity: Number of distinct affiliates who earned a commission by promoting the vendor’s products during the past 12 weeks. This is not an actual number of affiliates. For each affiliate an amount between 0.1 and 1.0 is added to the result, depending on when his/her last transaction occurred. More recent transactions are given a higher value.

The gravity amount of a product is meant to serve as an indication of the number of affiliates who are currently making sales of the product. When the gravity amount is higher, it means that there are more affiliates who earn commissions from that specific product at a given moment.

Clickbank popularity

The Definition of Clickbank Popularity

Clickbank popularity is determined by a vendor’s net sales over a recent time frame and also rewards vendors who have many affiliates promoting them.

While gravity takes into account only affiliates who made at least one sale in the period of 12 weeks or so, popularity takes on account the number of sales generated, the number of affiliates who tried to promote it but didn’t make any sale, as its name suggests it shows how the product is popular and remember popular does not mean it is better.

ClickBank Gravity Vs Popularity…which one do you go for while choosing Clickbank product?

This is my take on this. gravity is an important factor while choosing a Clickbank product for promoting rather than popularity.

In my experience in this affiliate marketing, I have found that most people search the Marketplace using the default “Sort by” option, which sorts all products by using popularity.

While popularity is a useful measure of a product’s earning potential for you as the affiliate, there are many advantages to using the other “Sort by” options available in the Marketplace as well, like gravity, earning per sale, etc.

Popularity could also have to do with how many affiliates have created hoplinks for this product but it’s not always a good recommendation to follow – stick with looking at products that have a gravity of between 6 and 40, especially if you’re new. The gravity is more of a reliable indicator that the product is actually selling! And that’s what counts.

Final words

Now we have seen the difference between Clickbank gravity vs. popularity, my recommendation is to go with gravity when it comes to choosing the best Clickbank product to promote as an affiliate, but gravity only will not decide which product to chose, you need to consider other elements like, how much money you will make per sale, commission percentage, refund rates, sales page/video among the other.

Affiliate Marketing 101 – The Basics

 

Affiliate-Marketing-101-–-The-Basics

Do you have a desire to start your online business, and all you want is to start making money online, but things don’t seem to be working for you. There is a reason for that, probably there are some little things you skipped or not doing them.

It takes some basic things to be successful at affiliate marketing:

Change the way you think about money.

Before you start an affiliate marketing business or can even contemplate picking an affiliate program to join, you will need to make some basic changes in your thinking.

You’ve got to really change the way you view money and you want to begin to feel like you deserve to be wealthy. While this concept seems simple, many people don’t feel like they deserve money.

As a result, their activities reflect their feelings of lack of worthiness. Instead of coming home from work and hitting the computer, reading an ebook, watching a training video, taking action on a plan, they will instead come home, sit in front of the television and time will pass.

People who feel like they should be able to make lots of money online will naturally make a lot of money online. This is not some spiritual or some motivational talk, although I feel that spirituality is a part of everyone’s journey. However, that is not what I’m talking about when I say people can make lots of money.

The most important thing to remember is that if you feel like you deserve lots of money, you will take the actions to make it happen.

Stay focused

When you are new at affiliate marketing it is easy to get distracted and lose focus, I was guilty of this, you know, I was involved in 6 different niches, I was doing 10 different traffic strategies, I was promoting everything that could make me money and followed everyone.

Guess what, I was making zero money online, in order to make money online by using the power of affiliate marketing you need to focus on one niche, one product, and one traffic method, you need to focus on those until you become an expert on your niche and making enough money then you can start thinking about expanding to another niche or traffic method.

Pick a niche product to start with and then START

As I said above, you will need to pick one niche product and then start, all you need to succeed online is starting with your main product.

The simple way to find the product you need to start with is to ask yourself this question ‘what is one product that my audience can’t survive without ?’ The answer to this question will give you the ideal product for your audience.

For example, if you’re teaching your audience how to start an affiliate marketing business, probably the answer can be a landing page builder and the product is Clickfunnels.

If you’re teaching your audience, how to build an authority blog that makes them 6 figures, the answer could be a reliable web hosting and this could be WpxHosting.

If you’re teaching your audience on how to lose weight, the answer could be changing their diet and the product could be a diet program like Jane Craig Diet Program.

You can use the examples above to find your main product, then you could promote what I call auxiliary products, those are products that compliment your main product, those could be an autoresponder, a domain name, coaching, etc for those who have an audience who is interested in affiliate marketing.

Find a mentor and then take action.

Most people you will meet on your online business journey they don’t make any money and then they will pretend to want to teach you how to do it, you need to avoid these people.

You need to find one mentor who had achieved things do you want to achieve and then take action, do everything they tell you to do and you will be successful.

For me, my views on affiliate marketing and life, in general, changed completely when I met my mentor, it is very important that you find a mentor for yourself.

This is the guy who is helping me to rebuild my online business, all you have to do is to join Clickfunnel via this link and when you join send me an email via the contact form below, I will send you access to his training and his private coaching group.

Make a schedule and then stick to it.

This is what my mentor taught me, you need to make a schedule and then stick to it, if do you have a 9-5 job, you can do this too, all you need is at least two hours per day each and every day, after arriving home from your day job, you can take time for your family, your significant other and then dedicate two hours for your affiliate marketing business.

If you can’t find time to do this after work hours or maybe you arrive home very tired, you can try to do it early in the morning before going to work, just try to wake up earlier than normal.

Start small and apply what you learn as you go.

Avoid being overwhelmed out of the gate. You want to learn, apply it on a small level and then scale up when you feel you have the basics under control.

While you are doing this, you will start to make money. By staying focused, I mean avoid the multi-tab distractions. You can open a ton of websites in browsers nowadays.

If your plan calls for answering emails between a certain time and a certain time, avoid reading emails before that time. Tell yourself, it will still be sitting there waiting for you at.

Final words

This is the basic of affiliate marketing, if do you want to learn more about starting your affiliate marketing business and starting an online business please feel free to check out this free training on how to kill your 9-5 job, and the good news is that my mentor will do 90% of all work, all you need to do is to take action.
