How to Make BIG Money From a Free E-Book

     Want to know how to make a lot of money? Give something away for free!

    This might sound mad but actually it’s a tried and true strategy that has been a hallmark of business since time immemorial.

     Just think about Starbucks – often you’ll pass one of their stores and find they’re passing out tasters of their various coffees or cakes. Of course the reasoning behind this is that you’ll be able to see how delicious they are and then in future you’ll think about visiting.

     In other words, they are demonstrating their value to you so that you’ll be more interested in going in in future.

     Bloggers do this all the time too: by providing free content on your website, you demonstrate the value you’re capable of offering and this in turn gives your audience more reason to want to buy from you when you tell them you’re selling a course or an e-book.

     But why not go even further with it… why not give the e-book away for free?

Why This Plan is Just Crazy Enough to Work

     The thing is, we’re used now to getting free content when we visit websites. This is nothing new, it’s not exciting and we don’t tend to get especially excited about it.

     On the other hand though, we’re used to paying for our e-books.

     So when someone sends you a completely free e-book, when you find one online, or when you find one on Amazon – you’ll probably download it. And this is especially true if it sounds genuinely good and if you really think that it can help you to lose weight/make money/find love or do whatever it is that it’s promising to do.

     And once you’ve downloaded this free book, you will probably read it.

Monetizing the Ebook

     And as an affiliate marketer you have a very easy way to monetize that: by offering links to a number of products you can recommend throughout the book and really sell. Now you know your audience is interested in what you’re promoting and all you have to do is make it sound great and give them the link.

     If you have a mailing list then this is a fantastic strategy: just e-mail your list and say ‘check out this completely free book as a thank you’. What’s even better is that your audience will be grateful and see it as a kind favour!

How To Become the Next Affiliate Superstar FAST

     When people start affiliate marketing, they likely have just one goal in mind: to become the next ‘superstar affiliate’ and to start selling products in the thousands of millions so that they can give up the day job and start travelling the world.

     We hear these success stories all the time and we’re constantly told it’s possible. The problem is, that when most people try and emulate that success, they end up with a few paltry sales and a lot of time wasted and hopes dashed.

     It doesn’t have to be this way though. If you’re smart about it, then there’s no reason you can leapfrog the rest of the marketers and go straight to the top as a superstar affiliate!

The Tried and Tested Formula

     The first tip for doing this is to emulate the people you want to be as successful as. Find someone who you genuinely believe is making a killing from affiliate marketing and do your background checks by asking about them on Warrior Forum or just following them around the web for a bit. Are they hanging out with other big names? Are they showing signs of being ‘in the money’?

     Once you’re sure, you should then sign up to their mailing list, go on their site and generally become one of their prospective customers. Instead of buying from them though, you’re just going to learn from them. What product are they selling? How are they convincing their audience to buy?

     You can then lift that exact same product and exact same formula and do the same thing yourself. That’s the beautiful thing about affiliate marketing – you can use the very same formula!

Stand Out

     When you start doing this though, you’ll of course be competing with all the other affiliate marketers who had the same idea (not to mention that initial superstar). The trick to succeeding is to do what they probably aren’t – by adding value. Could you give away a free e-book with your sales for instance?

Go Big or Go Home

     The other thing to do is scale up. Want to guarantee success? Then sell 100 affiliate products – one of them is bound to become a hit! Likewise, make sure you’re going big in terms of the amount of work you’re doing, the amount of money you’re putting in and the amount of social media you’re doing. The simple rule is that if you want to make a full-time living from an online job, you need to treat it like your full time living. One hour a month is not enough!

How the Fail Fast Technique Helps You to Earn Fast as an Affiliate

     ‘Fail fast’ is an adage in business that more people should know. It is applicable to a wide variety of different business models and that’s particularly true when it comes to selling affiliate products. Read on to learn more about what it means and how you can make it work for you.

What is ‘Fail Fast’?

     Fail fast essentially means that you should aim to succeed or fail quickly.

     Whereas our initial instinct is to do everything we can do to succeed in business, this can sometimes lead to us investing too much time, effort and money into a single idea. In other words, you end up spending months on your landing page, on choosing your product, on priming your mailing list and on creating the perfect storm in which to sell. Read More

What Is Affiliate Marketing And How It Works

Dear friend!

     In this post I’m going to explain what is Affiliate Marketing and how it works? Let’s start with the question:

What Is
Affiliate Marketing?   

     Affiliate Marketing is a business model where you promote someone else’s products and you get commission for each sale. It is one one of the quickest and cheapest but not easiest way to start making money online. Now let’s explain

How Does
Affiliate Marketing
Works?

     You simply link up a buyer and a seller, and you take commission for each sale. Now let’s explain step by step process know as:

Affiliate Marketing
5 Step Formula

     Step #1: A Visitor Arrives To Your Squeeze  Page – You bring visitors to your squeeze page using different ways like PPC (pay-per-click) on Google, Facebook, Bing. Or other ways like guest posting on high traffic web sites, posting a presentation in linkeshare where people view your slide and find your squeeze page through it.

     Step #2: A Free Gift Is Offered To The Visitor – This can be a high quality downloadable handbook, a video, a report on a topic he/she is really interested. All the visitor has to do to receive the freebie is to enter their email address, and the download link will be email to him.

     Step #3: The Visitor Enters Their Credentials To Receive The Freebie – After the visitor has entered their email address they start trusting you more because you gave them something really useful for free.

     Step #4: He Begins Receiving Newsletter Emails – Usually when you sign up for an affiliate program and you choose the product to promote, often times the vendor of that product writes well-written for you, so you can use those emails to create the email follow up sequence using any email auto responder service. I use myself Aweber! Those emails are sent automatically each day, or however you set up them. Now the visitor which became a lead starts trusting you even more.

     Step #5: The Emails Recommend products That Help The Subscriber Solve Its Problems – The visitor knows and trusts yo more, so he’s likely to listen to your recommendations. If he buys one of you are promoting in the emails, you get a commission for that sale. You continue emailing a few times per week. Over the year the visitor could end up buying several products you have recommended to help them solve their problems.
