Super Affiliate Journey – Day 1

Wow it’s been a long time since I have made a post here. A lot has happened in the mean-time. Since my last post I have learned paid traffic, spent a year doing copy hour (copywriting), completed a few course on email marketing and most recently joined a super affiliate training program.

I read one of the best books I have read in a long time the “Millionaire Fastlane”. There is a concept it presents that bears repeating. It says,”Wealth is a process not an event”. So what does that mean to me specifically? This means it’s more important to learn an activity and get consistent with it than to hope for something magical to happen. Once the new skill is in place your perspective is different and of course your probabilities.

So what I intend to do is to post for the next X days until I reach my first super-affiliate goal. I will make sure the future posts in kept to a standard format like –>

1) Goal for the day and how does that fit with the next milestone
2) Why is this important?
3) What specifically is the goal?
4) How do I intend to do this?

As Dalan Marras said,”Think big but start small…” So my first goal is to

“Net $100/day or more from my Online affiliate marketing business”

To do that I need to

1) Choose an offer to promote
2) Create a website to market from
3) Choose a traffic source
4) Create initial marketing angles
5) Create compliant landing page/advertorial and install tracking
6) Create initial ads based on marketing angles
7) Run traffic
8) Gather and quantify data
9) Test new ads based on winners. Split test new landing page ideas
10) Goto 7)

So that’s my plan in a nutshell. I’ll probably also make some quick videos where appropriate

Have a great one!!!

Amazing Selling Machine Update – July

amazing-selling-machine-iconI thought I would make a quick update since my last one was a little while ago. The second product was a smashing success. There were a number of reasons for this. First and foremost, after the process of launching my first product I had gained a lot of knowledge about things that needed to happen in order to make the subsequent product launches more successful.

In my humble opinion one of the most important strategies is identifying and building a group of people whose lives will be enhanced as a result of using your product. While waiting for your product to be delivered from the manufacturer you should engage them with complimentary content that builds up to the launch of your product. The result was utilizing a pre-defined replicable launch process. Read More→

Amazing Selling Machine Update

amazing-selling-machine-iconI joined the Amazing Selling Machine back in October of 2013 as part of the ASM-2 class. My goal was to fail fast but safely. I gave myself 21 days to research, source, and get my first product page listing on Amazon using their FBA program as directed by the Amazong Selling Machine program. I chose the health/supplements category and earned my $1K and $2K earning badges. The main intent of my initial product was to learn how to properly use the Amazon FBA system. It was not my intent to stay in that category long-term. Read More→
