Affiliate Marketing Training 2017

Affiliate Marketing Training

Affiliate marketing training will save you a lot of time and aggravation. Free or paid, you need it when you first start out. Very simply, a lot of strategies claim to be profitable and no longer are so.

Google is constantly modifying and tweaking their algorithms. We all know this; it only makes sense that this should be.

Trouble is, it is my opinion that Google also tweaks their software to not rank things with which they may disagree or of which they may not approve. It sucks, but it can be gotten around by staying on top of things and keeping up with the most recent best practices.

Affiliate Marketing Training for Beginners

I hinted at this in the previous section. Affiliate marketing training for beginners is available everywhere. You can also find it at just about any price point.

The effectiveness of that training should always be in question.

Square One

Let’s say you are at the point where you have decided you want to be in business for yourself. You have no idea how to get started. You’ve no products of your own to sell. Right now your status is that you want to work for yourself and need a plan.

I would:

  • Decide on the training you will take. You need training.
  • Decide on a product/product line you want to represent.

Were I to say just pick one training source and one source of products to market as an affiliate I would recommend the following two step plan:

  1. Join My Lead System Pro, either at the Mastery or the University level.
  2. Go to ClickBank and create an account so you can review and have something to sell.

My Lead System Pro’s program trains you across the board.  If someone has had significant success in marketing online, then chances are fairly high they have had a relationship with or spent significant training time with My Lead System Pro.

As a member of MLSP you will have access to in-depth tutorials on how best to use the major social media platforms to market those products for whom you are an affiliate.

  1. Facebook
  2. YouTube
  3. Twitter
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Pinterest
  6. Google Plus+
  7. Snap Chat

If it is a known fact that the top three social media sites are Facebook, YouTube and Twitter in that order, then it follows that you should pick one of those three to master.  Because you are new, a good plan would be to set up accounts on all three platforms and see which one you tend to gravitate towards most.

There Can Only Be One

While that is not exactly true, it is a good idea for the beginner. It is also a good idea for the person who is currently banging their head against the wall and showing no results.

As a result of your preferring one channel over the other two, your marketing efforts will probably bear more fruit there simply because you prefer to spend time there.

Finally, remember that daily, consistent action is more powerful than waiting until the weekend when you can focus all day on Saturday on your business. I say that because Saturday always seems to have its own demands and you will be telling yourself you will do it next week.

The only time to take action is today.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing: Why?

Affiliate marketing is the perfect place for folks who do not have their own product line to offer folks.

It is THE perfect place for beginners to start.

Developing your own eBook or other offering or course requires that you have a skill set or block of knowledge on a specific subject that you know well enough to put it into book form.

Then you have to determine what channels you are going to use. Selling a link to an eBook download is pretty simple. It is in developing a quality product that folks are going to enjoy and benefit from that most beginners come up short.

So, do you wait until you have developed your opus or do you start now?

Whatever you sell, you want it to be something you are proud of and do or would use yourself.

This will almost guarantee your reputation amongst your customers to be a good one.

This will also lead to repeat business and referral business which gives your enterprise long term stability.

To sum up:

  1. Affiliate marketing lets you get started today.
  2. Only sell stuff you know is quality. Do not compromise on this point, ever.
  3. Starting here is perfect for the beginner.

So, how and where do you get those products and services?

Products and Services for Affiliate Marketers

Good things to sell are all over the place. Sadly, so are bad things.

Do You REALLY Want Your Name Associated With That?

There are many companies who will pay very good commissions for those who refer business to them. Some will pay 50%, 75% or more. Some even 100% on certain things because they know its value as a sales tool for other offerings.

No matter how high the commission, it is irrelevant if the wares of the company in question are just flim flam and the commissions will be reversed as soon as a refund is requested.

With the number of quality companies out there marketing through affiliates, there is absolutely no reason for you to strain yourself selling junk and hurting the market place.

Stick to quality; we all of us will benefit.

Yes, I know I am repeating myself but it bears repeating. I want you successful for the long haul.

Affiliate Marketplaces

There are several.

I, myself, have used Clickbank, the oldest and longest running affiliate marketplace I believe. The have tons of tools to help you, too. Going to Clickbank and checking out the width of things being offered would not be a bad idea.

Clickbank is also the easiest for the beginner because many affiliate market places require an application, some even require a vetting process. Shortest path to starting now? Clickbank.

Some other places for you to develop a relationship over time are:

  • ClickBank. Easy sign up, decent commissions, be picky, though.
  • Amazon. Tons of products, low commissions.
  • eBay.
  • CJ Affiliate by Conversant. Broad selection, but you have to apply with each advertiser.

Getting Started

You will need a website. Since Google is the 3,000 lbs. gorilla in the room and Google loves WordPress, I am going to strongly recommend you use a WordPress blog.

Since you need a website, you are going to need hosting. Godaddy still hosts one of my blogs and I am very happy with the service they have rendered.

Training. You are going to need to invest in some training. Now, I am going to be providing training here on a regular basis, so always plan to check us out.

You also need to go here and sign up for our free weekly training seminar. It is taught by the best of the best and I make it a point to be there every week. You will learn how to kick your business into vertical take off!

Best Regards,

affiliate marketing
