Re: How to make more commissions as an affiliate marketer even if you haven’t made a penny before.
Have you ever tried to put together something that came with a "some embly required" tag attached?
You know the sort, usually furniture with instructions so confusing and pictures that bare no resemblance to what you bought. And so many bits you don’t know what to do with them (and there’s usually things left over at the end but that’s another story!)
I’m convinced this is some kind of trick to see just how much we really want the completed product. Surely someone somewhere is watching and having a good laugh at our expense, right?
I can see them now, watching maybe even placing bets on will he or won’t he finish the project….well it’s how I feel
Neil’s Rant: I’m not a big fan of DIY at the best of times but trying to put things together using instructions that look like they were designed by someone who has never seen the item never mind used it themselves drives me nuts! I want it in plain written English, with simple to follow steps and DON’T even get me started on the ‘not enough pictures’ argument! Add in the fact that they sometimes leave out important pieces of information and you’ve got the makings of a very frustrating experience…AND I always end up with pieces left over and that leaves me wondering if the darn thing will fall apart in the middle of the night…or is it just me?
Karen and I were recently putting together such an item and as we looked at all of the different nuts, bolts, screws, plinths and brackets and that wasn’t it… there was also 12, (yes 12) pages of confusing instructions!
That may not sound like much to you at first glance, but that’s one of THE most profound and important questions anyone performing any kind of task can ever ask.
All of those things may very well be important in the long term, but they just get in the way for now. You need one simple step at a time. All you need to know is…
All it does is lead to the feeling of information overload, overwhelm and frustration as you struggle to get started, never mind make a profit online.
Wouldn’t it be much easier for you to actually get things done if someone simply told you, "here’s what you need to do to get started then, here’s the next step you need to take"?
But you do NOT need to be overwhelmed with "information overload". You simply need to know what to do (and how to do it!) in one simple step at a time.
But, before we get into that, we probably should talk just a moment about "what is affiliate marketing" in case you’re completely new to the concept. Here’s what it is…
Affiliate marketing is an agreement between a vendor/product owner and an affiliate (you) in which the vendor pays the affiliate a commission for referrals generated through the affiliate’s efforts to promote a uniquely igned tracking link.
That’s affiliate marketing in a nutshell. You promote your "affiliate link" and get paid when people click through on your link and buy the product you are promoting. It’s very easy and super fast to get started.
But what makes affiliate marketing so desirable – and really separates it from other business models – is what you DO NOT need to have in place…
1. You don’t need to create your own products. Many people find the idea of creating their own products to be a daunting, overwhelming and even paralyzing task.
“I don’t have any good ideas! I’m not a writer! There’s too much compeion! I don’t know how to set everything up”! These are just a few of the valid reasons many people have when it comes to not getting their own products to sell. BUT, with affiliate marketing, you don’t need your own products. You simply promote someone else’s already proven successful offer for a commission.
2. You don’t need to build a website. What scares people more than creating a product is building a website! “What in the world is HTML? How much does the software cost? How do I upload files? Why isn’t it formatted correctly? Why don’t my graphics look like the ones the pros have?”
