One of the most important things when it comes to affiliate marketing is having the right set of tools.
You don’t want to have too many tools and you especially don’t want to have duplicates, but you absolutely do need a core set of tools that will serve you well.
Let me give you a short list of the tools you need to succeed and then focus in on the one that’s most important.
You really need the following:
THE SECRET SUPER-AFFILIATES WON’T SHARE!
Many people don’t know that when it comes to succeeding as an affiliate marketer, building webpages quickly and professionally is very important.
Did you know …
So what IS a landing page?
Well, first of all, the words “landing page” can be a little confusing.
It simply means the page a person lands on from a link that you promote.
It’s very important to understand that the links that we promote are going to bring people to one specific page.
What is needed to really succeed with affiliate marketing is the ability to drive people to one SPECIFIC page that helps them and helps you.
In order to do that, the most important tool in your affiliate success toolkit is going to be a good, high quality page builder.
Now, here are the attributes I look for when it comes to building pages quickly and professionally.
#1: Use one tool to get everything done.
You don’t want to use five or seven different tools in order to write a headline, create a bulleted list, or make an add to cart button.
You want to have one tool that you know, trust, and can use to get it all done.
When I say “get it all done”, what do I mean?
I mean every type of page you will need as an affiliate marketer.
When you have one tool to get it all done, you will lower your costs by not paying for multiple services.
It’s all too easy to have a squeeze page service, a sales page service, a shopping cart and on and on.
Those costs can add up to hundreds of dollars per month!
By avoiding such excessive cost, you can take all that money and put it into driving traffic to your affiliate offers.
#2 – You want to have rapid implementation.
By rapid implementation, this is what I mean:
If you get an idea this morning for a squeeze page where people can opt in to get on your mailing list, you want to be able to have that page built and published this afternoon.
You don’t want to outsource that to someone, pay extra money, and wait three or four days.
You don’t want to struggle with some kind of an HTML coding situation.
What you really need is a drag and drop page builder that can help you create pages quickly because it uses professional templates.
One of the things to look for when you choose a page builder is pre-designed templates. You want to have a library of templates to choose from.
Ideally, you want 30 or 40 of these, or even more.
#3 – You want a page builder to be drag and drop.
This simply means that you don’t have to type code into the page. You select what you want to see and drag it into place.
Drag and drop is very important because it removes traditional page building limitations.
If you can dream something, if you can see a page in your mind, you want to be able to create that page very quickly. Drag and drop makes that happen.
Along with these three qualities, you also want to make sure that your page builder will tie into your autoresponder and e Commerce tool very, very easily.
Let’s say for example that you’re selling a product and you want to collect payments through PayPal. You want to make sure that your page builder instantly integrates with PayPal.
Or let’s say that you’re doing a webinar and you’re going to use GoToWebinar. Your page builder should instantly connect to GoToWebinar.
The same thing if you’re building a membership site. When you use a tool like WishList Member, you want to make sure that that page builder that you choose will tie into WishList Member quite easily.
These are very important aspects when considering which page builder to use.
If you want to succeed with affiliate marketing, no matter where you stand now, the right page builder can change things for you.
The right page builder will help you save time, save money, sell more and build bigger lists.
Go find a page builder now and commit to it.
Use that page builder for everything and you’ll find that it really helps skyrocket your affiliate marketing results.
For the past 2 years, I have shifted focus from affiliate marketing to E Commerce and crypto currency. Things was rosy at first. Unfortunately it has gone a bit difficult for me in terms of sustainable success. Crypto aka Bitcoin has not taken off yet. So why this rant? Let me tell you why.
For E Com, success comes when you have a winning product to sell, plus a steady flow of traffic. That has become increasingly difficult as of late as there a literally thousands of ECom players (or dropshippers) getting into the game, and fb traffic has become increasingly difficult for shopify stores, i.e advertising cost is getting more expensive. Yes I was able to sell a couple of items via dropshipping and Print On Demand, however it is not sustainable for me. Selling 50 item or less in a month does not support and doesn’t cut it for me.
Now when it comes to crypto and bitcoin, I have laid the groundwork for myself. I had my cold & hot wallets setup, mining rig in place, etc. I am still a proponent of bitcoin, and will keep a close eye on it. But it has not shoot up yet (when moon, when lambo?). I do believe in will come, especially with the next halving that will occur in 2020.
But as an internet marketer, I cannot wait and stay still until 2020 bitcoin to potentially goes up. Time is money.
This forced me to do some soul searching, take inventory and look at where I am at now with my online business.
I realized that I need to continue doing what I know best, and that is becoming a good digital marketer. So, I’m going back to basics.
Basics such as restoring my list, building my list, having my Buy Now buttons up.
The fourth quarter 2019, my focus will be just that. And I am going to document that journey. I will still keep a close eye on bitcoin because that is coming.
So in essence, I am answering the question, “What would you have done if you were to start all over?”
My answer is, I would do the same thing, but this time with more accountability.
So now, here I am being accountable to you, as I am going to document my journey on how to build my 5000 subscribers list. I’m going to document all the steps, all the success, all the troubles that I face when building 5000 fresh list of subscribers.
So keep a look out in this blog. Until then.
Remember when you first made the decision to pour yourself into internet marketing? Maybe you’ve felt the rush of quitting your 9-to-5 in favor of starting off on a venture where success or failure rest squarely on your shoulders and yours alone, where earning potential is virtually unlimited and the possibilities seem endless. It’s an exciting moment. But are you still excited?
While WordPress is easily the most simple to use and complete blogging platform and content management system out there on the market, it does have a few major flaws. One of them in particular can be extremely frustrating to deal with and that’s when the software breaks down. WordPress is software so just like any other software program, yours can stop working and create all types of problems for your marketing operations.
When WordPress “breaks,” the culprit can be any number of things: faulty plugins, corrupted files, problems in the database, etc. The good news is that most of the time, your data will remain unharmed, it’s just that your blogs and/or site won’t be visible to the public (meaning no sales, which is equally bad!). The even better news is that it’s super easy to fix a broken WordPress install. Here’s how.
