Free Affiliate Marketing Training For Beginners – My Journey
I started learning affiliate marketing several years ago now. I jumped for one strategy to another without really taking the time to learn properly. Back then there were less organised courses on the internet all with slightly different themes and tactics. I tried them all expecting fast results and I was thoroughly disappointed! See my article how to start an internet business what I wish I knew then.
Free Affiliate Marketing Training – What To Expect
Don’t expect fast results unless you are prepared to spend money on advertising. Doing an internet business for free takes a long time. I tried for years to do everything for free and it cost me a lot of time and energy. Jumping from one strategy to another, always looking for the ‘magic bullet’ of internet success is the surest way to fail!
It takes time to learn and then it takes time to implement an internet business. Be wary of how you spend your time. Time is more valuable than money! You can always make more money but your time is limited!
Free Affiliate Marketing Training – How To Spend Your Time
As an affiliate marketer you can be your own boss, work from home in your pyjamas and generally have a great time, right? Well sometimes this is true but you also need to pay the bills. In a ‘normal’ job you can ‘get away’ with goofing off, wasting time – browsing Facebook and chatting to your friends! With your own business, that is time wasted! You won’t paid at the end of the month for wasting time. You only get paid for your money producing activities.
Don’t be a ‘busy fool’. Being a busy fool refers to the above activities. Don’t think you can build a website and sit back waiting for the money to start rolling in! You first need to learn the skills to build an internet business and then you need to actually implement them. This all takes time and that is time you can’t afford to waste.
Building an Internet Business Faster
See how to build your online business faster than ever before. To build faster you need to spend money on advertising. Creating content takes time. Making videos for YouTube takes time. Ranking a website on Google’s free organic search results takes a long time. Sometime it won’t even rank you website. Even after a lot of hard work. To build you online business fast you are going to need to spend money. If you don’t want to spend any money it will take much longer
Free Affiliate Marketing Training For Beginners – The Free Route
The ‘free’ route to building an internet business is a long slow process. It requires a lot of hard work and you are going to need some training. You can access my videos on YouTube (subscribe on the link on the right), and get free training here. There are also thousands of videos on YouTube which will explain how to write content to get found. Ideally you would find an untapped niche on the internet which you can rank some articles for without much difficulty. In reality it is very competitive. You can use Clickbank.com to find digital products to promote on your blog and you can get a blog for free at Hubpages.com.
In my experience this has been a long and arduous process. I tried the free route for a long time before I decided to start again and bite the bullet.
Affiliate Marketing Training For Beginners – The Paid Route
It’s hard making a living from the internet. There are people who make thousands from a single email. However those people have spent a long time learning and implementing their business models. They have already build a list of thousands of contacts who hang on their every word! It takes them a long time before they arrive at this point.
Selling a single product on the internet is very exciting when it first happens but it’s still difficult to make a long term business out of the internet without spending any money. If you sell a $100 product and make 50% then you earn $50. You’re going to need to sell a lot of these products in order to give up your day job. Plus you need to sell them consistently.
Here’s a better business model to take on board before you start trying to sell $50 products on a free blog.
Affiliate Marketing Training For Beginners – A Better Affiliate Model
See also best revenue models for websites. Selling a ‘one off’ product online will keep your spirits up but not for long. Unless you have a business model which rewards you continually for each sale, your results will be sporadic at best. Here’s a better affiliate business model which will make your affiliate business more sustainable:
- Selling membership products rather than ‘one off’s’ – By selling membership with a monthly affiliate commission attached, you stand to make a monthly income from your members.
- Selling High Ticket Items – High Ticket sales means a greater affiliate commission per sale. Instead of making $100 for a sale you can make upwards of $500 for each sale. This helps offset advertising costs and makes your efforts online more profitable – (same effort for greater rewards).
- Selling Products With A Built In Up-Sell and Sales Team – By selling items with an up-sell opportunity you have the potential to earn much more from individual sales. With a sales team in place this make it more of a possibility without having to do selling personally. Simply refer the sale and the rest is done for you. See done for you internet business.
- Use A Multi Tier Commission Opportunity – If you join as a partner, you can make commissions from the sales of your team members.
