Remember Your Content Speaks Volumes about Your Brand’s Value

I remember the first time I got into affiliate marketing. I ran into an online community and it seems like everybody was in agreement. It felt like I was in a chorus. Everybody kept saying the same things. Everybody kept recommending the same things. As you can well imagine, when I started more than a decade ago, the common refrain was “Content is king.” You keep hearing it over and over again. “Content is king.” Some people even exaggerate and say that “Content is emperor.” That was all I needed to hear and I cranked out a tremendous amount of content. I don’t mean to brag but I’m a pretty decent writer. So, I found all my target keywords and I just blasted out as much content as I could based on those keywords. The materials that I produced were highly readable; they addressed certain issues; they spoke to the needs of my intended readers. I thought I did everything right. I thought everything was in the right place. I thought that I put in the right amount of time, effort, and focus on a solid and comprehensive online publishing strategy. This is why I was really disappointed when after publishing my one thousandth article, I realized that I wasn’t making much money at all. All that time, effort, and energy seemed wasted. As you can well imagine, I...

How to Build a High Ticket Brand

One of the hottest segments in the affiliate marketing niche is high ticket sales. Affiliate marketers who focus on high ticket sales are able to make more money off the time, effort, and resources they would normally invest in any other kind of affiliate product promotion or the promotion of their own products. High ticket sales maximize reward. This is crucial. Let me be clear. If you’re going to put in a certain amount of time, effort, and dollars in affiliate marketing, wouldn’t you want a maximum return on your investment? This is a key question every marketer should ask himself or herself. Otherwise, it’s very easy to find yourself putting in all this time and effort only to settle for crumbs. That’s exactly what you’re doing with online publishing, Kindle book production, or any other way you use to make money and/or drive traffic. You want to work less yet earn more. Unfortunately, a lot of people are clueless regarding this and this is why they do affiliate marketing the same way as everybody else. It is no surprise that majority of affiliate marketers are simply settling for crumbs. I know that sounds harsh. I know that it seems like an uncharitable way to do it, but it’s also the most accurate depiction of what’s going on. If you think about it, you are putting in all this...

Creating sales funnels for rich people is very different from general marketing

Too many marketers fail. There, I said it. I know it’s an inconvenient truth. But I have to say it. It is the 800 pound gorilla in the room that people simply refuse to see. It is an obvious fact. But people are so uncomfortable about it, they’d rather not talk about it. In fact, they’d rather pretend it doesn’t exist. Well, here’s the problem. If you refuse to see the possibility of you failing, you will make the same mistakes that other failed marketers are making. You will end up in the same place they’re in right now. It’s easy to visualize making thousands of dollars every single month through affiliate marketing. In fact, a lot of affiliate marketers are able to generate this amount of money. They are experts at online marketing and they are able to convert online traffic into cold, hard cash. The problem is a lot of affiliate marketers are doing it the wrong way. They are playing a volume game. They look for products that pay $5 or $10, or even $50 if they’re lucky, and pop a lot of traffic to pages that will try to convert visitors into buyers of those products. So far, so good, right? Well, what if I told you that you can be making so much more money targeting a totally different market? You don’t have to...
