I had a hard time trying to come up with a title for this post so, The Affiliate Marketing Puzzle. it is. Plus it’s good for S.E.O. 😉
Have you boughten a digital product from a vendor but don’t know how to set it up correctly? For instance, the SUPER PACKS that a person can buy online for $2.99. It’s a good product and has the capacity to make alot of quick sign-up & sales. But I’ve never gotten there. Instead, I have a hard drive filled with unused and unfinished. Or maybe you bought the DFY (Done For You) package, where you can sit back and watch the commissions come rollin’ in!
Now don’t get me wrong. Most of these ‘How To Make Money Online’ product launches deliver what they Promote & Advertise. Some over deliver with the incentive and bonus packages given, then if PUT TOGETHER PROPERLY, the product SHOULD work how it is designed to.
But……from my 4 years in this Industry I have found a couple major factors in why some affiliates make sales and most do not. Most product vendors have a good sized email list. That 1 factor alone gives the advantage to those who have LARGER EMAIL LIST. Conversions always tell the tale. If you have a list of 50,000, 25,000, or even 3,000, 2,000 & 1,000. Without an Email List, you don’t have a business.
Then there’s the back-end promises that never seem to transpire into anything. I personally used to buy every JVZOO and WARRIORPLUS product that came out. And every now and then I would buy the F.E.(Front End) product and ALL the O.T.O.’s. I have 4 ‘D.F.Y.’ or Extra/Private Coaching offers that simply were NOT what was advertised. One of these OTO’s promises ‘Coaching until you MAKE SOME MONEY!. Instead I got an invite to a private webinar. And all it turned out to be was a Q&A with the product developer/vendor. ? Like are you serious?? I paid $97 U.S.D. for a private 1 hour webinar that didn’t help me in any way what-so-ever. UGH!!! I could go on & on & on. There are a few vendors that won’t even get back to you if you need support.
I guess what I’m trying to say is it’s not only about ‘Taking Action’. Life comes into play when you least expect it and sometimes it affects your ability to build and focus on your online business. Do your research. Do it twice even. Because if you don’t it’ll cost you more than you expect. I have more to talk about so be on the lookout for Tuesday’s post where I’ll share the best viral nuggets out there.
