Introduction to Affiliate Marketing
Becoming an affiliate marketer is, in many ways, the perfect business model. Here’s a way to earn money online while you sleep, without even having to build a product!
This is the method that internet marketing gurus most often recommend, and it is said to have helped them live the lives of their dreams, buy their own private jets, and generally enjoy a lifestyle that was once only available to famous people and CEOs with a lot of money.
You may be wondering if this is all too good to be true. Can you really earn that much money while you sleep? by selling someone else’s product?
If that’s true, then why aren’t more people online billionaires?
Here’s the truth: it is absolutely possible to earn a huge amount of money online as an affiliate marketer. Plenty of people genuinely have made a huge amount of money by selling affiliate products online.
The problem? The methods that they share very often don’t reflect the best strategies that you should employ. Why? This often comes down to one of two things:
- They don’t want you to know the techniques they are actually using to get rich (newsflash: it’s selling those books to you!)
- They actually aren’t that successful. That’s because a large proportion of the people who are successful are already living on a sunny island somewhere and no longer need to sell eBooks!
The other thing to keep in mind is that this is by no means a “sure thing.” There are no sure things when it comes to business, and there’s never a guarantee that any strategy you use will be effective.
But with all of that said, the intention of this book is to cut through the noise. to do away with this distracting nonsense and instead focus on just what actually works. In other words, this book will explain to you how you can actually sell a product successfully. That means teaching you the very strategies that were probably used to sell you this book!
That’s not a bad thing, by the way: the very fact that you have been a customer means that you will have a great idea of what it is that appeals to someone when buying an ebook. You can get inside the minds of your customers.
What you’re really going to learn then is a set of tools and strategies: a number of different methods and concepts that you can apply when selling anything that will help you to be highly successful. You’ll still need to choose the right products, and you will still need some luck. But you’ll also find that by applying these ideas, you’ll be able to increase your likelihood of selling anything.
In fact, you can consider the skills you will learn in this book to be what is known in business as a “force multiplier.” A force multiplier is anything that makes your success or output bigger or better than it would have been without it.
So, let’s say you have a product that would normally shift 1,000 units. By applying the principles in this book, you will be able to sell 100,000 units… or maybe 500,000.
The key, though, is to then find that product that will sell itself. That is one breakthrough product that could sell hundreds of thousands of copies on its own. Then you apply these same principles and you sell millions of copies. That’s how you will succeed.
This comes down partly to luck, but you know what they say: you make your own luck!
That is to say, by continuously trying and by setting yourself up to succeed, you will drastically increase your chances of success. If you start selling 30 products and use these principles on all of them, then either one of those products is going to be the huge breakthrough that you’re looking for, or the cumulative success of all 30 is going to help you break through and succeed.
Either way, you’re on to a winner!
You’ll learn these principles and concepts, but, on top of that, you can also think of this book as being a place where you can find all the basic how-tos and practical advice you need to get started as an affiliate marketer. Plus, you’ll learn how to leverage the inherent advantages of this type of business model and how to avoid the potential downfalls that come from selling a product that is not your own.
Ready to start making some huge sales? Want to get rich from a product without even having your own product to sell?
Then keep reading. You’re going to learn to do all those things.
I hope you’re excited, because this could be the start of something AWESOME…….
