Now we are getting into the stuff you really want to hear about! The money is in the list! We bet you have nev er heard that phrase
before (being completely sarcastic of course). If you have been in internet marketing for some time now, you know how important it is to have a list of your own.
In fact, ev ery single day you hav e probably heard the phrase “the money is in the list”. Have you ev er wondered why you have heard that so many times?
BECAUSE IT’S TRUE!!!!
Trust us, we used to do my best to rank my affiliate websites in Google, and sure, it might hav e worked for a bit, but then Google would change their algorithm and we’d lose our rankings and income.
You aren’t alone if you too are tired of playing this cat and mouse game with Google, so we decided to FINALLY take the adv ice of others and build up our own lists.
While we all built our lists in slightly different ways from each other, we can tell you right now, that’s when our business took off.
Why Is A List So Powerful?
When you have a list of your own, you have the ability to send traffic wherever you want, whenever you want. You will be laughing at all the people who are still trying to rank their sites in Google.
Imagine what it would be like to get approved for a product, then just send out an email and collect your INSTANT affiliate commissions.
Sound like the life you want?
Good! Because that’s the life you are going to hav e once you start building that list!
The other major benefit to having a list of your own is the fact that your conv ersion rates skyrocket. You will notice that conv ersion rates are much higher when the traffic comes from your list instead of coming from your website.
Why? Because you hav e a relationship with the people on your list. They know you, they trust you, they like you. You aren’t just some random person whose website they happened to stumble upon in the search engines.
It is typical to hav e conversion rates anywhere between 10-30% when the traffic comes from your list. When it comes from a website or blog, the conv ersion rate is usually around 1-2%.
Meaning if you send an email and 100 subscribers click the link and v isit the affiliate offer, you can expect to make 20 sales on a $7 product with 100% commissions.
20 sales from a list every time you send an email puts you in that awesome position of really thinking about quitting your job and many of you might go ahead and do it!
We hope you do because once you don’t have to stay up late on the computer and get up early for your J.O.B., you can grow even faster.
The same techniques that get one sale per email are the same as getting 20, 50 or even 100 sales an email like Lee Murray routinely does multiple times a month.
But let’s get back to the training…
This means you will make more money and won’t have any problems getting accepted by product creators to promote your own product.
We will get into your list building strategy in a bit, but I want you to 100% understand the fact that having a list is ESSENTIAL if you want to make a living off affiliate marketing. You can’t rely on Google, we can promise you that. But you can rely on your list.
The 3 Best Instant Payment Platforms
You need to be careful when choosing your payment platforms. We’v e hav e heard countless horror stories of people joining an affiliate platform, driving in hundreds of dollars worth of sales, and never once saw the money!
We would stay away from shaky CPA platforms that promise massiv e profits from promoting their offers. ClickSure is one we wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole anymore.
That’s why we stick to just 3 affiliate platforms. These affiliate platforms are extremely reliable, we’ve have never had an issue with payments, and they are FULL of awesome, high conv erting products. These three platforms are WarriorPlus, JV zoo, and DigiResults.
Before you move onto the next section, it would be a good idea to sign up with each of the platforms. You will need to have a verified PayPal account in order to get paid using all three of these platforms, so if you don’t hav e a v erified PayPal account, that’s the first thing you will need to do.
Signing up to the affiliate platforms is really easy. If you are going to be in online marketing for the long term, use your real name as the user name so you can build some name recognition as you grown and it will make it much easier for JV partners to find you.
Here’s how to do it:
WarriorPlus is probably the easiest platform to sign up with (although it’s easy to sign up to all of them). All you have to do is head over to http://WarriorPlus.com and click the “Register” button.
That will bring you to a page that looks like this:
Just fill out your information and click on “Create Account ”. Once you do that you are good to go!
Head ov er to http://JVzoo.com and click on “Become An Affiliate” just like in the image below:
Then scroll to near the bottom and you will see a button that says “Sign Up Now-It’s Free” that button looks like this:
Once you click on that button you will be brought to a page where they will have you enter all your details. Just follow the instructions on that page, agree to the terms, and click the green “Register” button.
BOOM! That’s it, you now have e a JV zoo account.
Head over to http://DigiResults.com and click on the “Sign Up” button.
Then it will ask you to fill in some basic information and hit the “Sign Up” button again. Once you do that you will need to check your email account and click on the link they sent you to finish the sign-up process. If for some reason you never received ed an email from them don’t forget to check your spam folder before you contact their support.
Once you click on that link you will be brought to a page where you need to click on a link to connect your PayPal account. It’s v very important to do this or else you won’t get paid. So just click on the button that looks like this:
Once you click on that button it will open a page asking you to log into PayPal. Once you log in just click “agree”. You now hav e a DigiResults account.
Now that you hav e an account at all three platforms, it’s time to choose a profitable affiliate program to promote!
You’ll find that 90% of the products you promote will be from either WarriorPlus or JV Zoo. With W+ especially if you are new, fill out a complete profile on the site and link it to your Warrior Forum account so affiliates can learn a little more about you and you’ll get higher approval rates.
JV zoo typically has slightly higher priced products and more software to promote. On WarriorPlus you’ll find more pdf reports and quicker “method” type products to promote.
DigiResults isn’t as busy as the other two platforms but you’ll still find some decent higher priced products to promote that may be good for some lists.
Remember we are only talking about platforms that offer instant payments direct to your PayPal account.
You can set up what we are teaching with other platforms such as ClickBank or a CPA network but just know it can take some time to get paid!
