Does my email marketing system work for affiliates?
That’s a common question I get asked, and the answer is a resounding YES.
It works for consultants, coaches, course creators, ecommerce sellers, affiliates, and more.
The mistake affiliates often make is thinking it’s all about the product they’re pitching.
It’s about the customer…and your relationship with them.
It’s about getting to know them and truly caring about them…their hopes and dreams, their obstacles and challenges, their pain points and faults.
It’s about only promoting products and services you know will bring value to their lives.
Do that and you can build a loyal…long-term audience.
I have clients and customers who have been with me for over a decade.
A buyer last week wrote in the “How did you hear about us?” section of the order form that he first saw me at a conference in 2002. That’s 19 years ago! And I’m sure there are others who have been with me even longer.
It’s not because I’m some kind of marketing genius. I’ve made a LOT of mistakes along the way.
I’ve probably made as many or more mistakes than just about anyone (that’s a result of staying in the game for 25 years).
But one thing I did right from the beginning was concentrating on email.
And it’s still the winner today.
Here’s a simple formula for online success…
Find a hungry, buying market.
Get them on an email list.
Communicate with them consistently.
These could be coaching offers, ecommerce offers, course offers, or affiliate offers.
I’ve helped clients reach success without any products of their own.
They built a connection with a list of hungry buyers.
And they earned multiple streams of income as an affiliate.
Here’s the beauty of a business like that.
It doesn’t take a lot of time.
The #1 priority is creating good emails (the content can be multi-purposed for other traffic methods).
Some people like writing a little each day. That could equal an hour invested each day.
Others, like me, prefer to block off time for writing and knock out a week or two weeks of emails all in one day.
That could equal a one-day work week…with only quick check-ups a few days during the week.
Of course, in the very beginning, when you’re getting your website up and traffic systems in place, it will take more time than this.
But once you have the momentum…an email-based business that monetizes with affiliate programs can be a beautiful thing.
The secret is getting to know your audience, discovering your message, and knowing how to create emails that persuade.
That’s why I created Autoresponder Alchemy.
It gives you 80 templates to help you create emails that sell, but that’s only the beginning.
Even greater value is in the included modules. You’ll discover how to find the hidden motivations behind why your audience buys, how to apply the “Super Hero” method of branding, and create money-on-demand offers.
