The REAL Secret To Affiliate Marketing

Have you ever wondered what the REAL secret to making money as an affiliate marketer is? The ONE big secret that every six and seven figure marketer seems to know that you just can’t seem to figure out?

Well I’m about to reveal it to you.

Are you on the edge of your seat?

The secret is……There is no secret. (gasp)

There’s no instant push button.

No whizz-bang software plugin that does all the work for you.

But there are a couple of things you DO need.

Making money in affiliate marketing in actually very simple.

When you have the following two things.

Targeted traffic and a high converting offer.

Let me break down what BOTH of these are.

Targeted Traffic

These are people that are actually interested in the topic or niche of the product you are promoting. A simple example would be if you were promoting a product about gardening you wouldn’t send people to that offer who are interested in skiing. They would NOT be targeted.

As obvious as it sounds a lot of newbies get this wrong.

High Converting Offer

This is a product or service that is proven to sell. What I mean by high converting is quite simple. If you send targeted visitors to a high converting offer a certain percentage of people won’t be interested but a percentage of them WILL buy.

When a person buys this is called a conversion.

Therefore a high converting offer is an offer that sells well hence the term high conversion rate.

Beware- baby school maths question alert

If you send 100 targeted (there’s that word again) visitors to an affiliate offer and 35 of them buy can you work out what your conversion rate is?



Give up?

Ok fine I’ll tell you. 35 sales divided by 100 visitors = 0.35 x 100=35%

35% conversion rate.

Targeted traffic and high converting offers are the only two things you need. If you master these two things you will make a LOT of money as an affiliate.

However, what a lot of affiliates do is try and push low quality traffic (not targeted) to junk products and wonder why they don’t make any money.

This is the point they throw their hands in the air and curse anybody who has ever told them ‘affiliate marketing works’.

Always, always go back to basics when running your affiliate marketing campaigns. Is the traffic you’re sending targeted? Are they likely to be interested in the offer I’m promoting? Has the offer been proven to convert?

This ultimately begs the question how do I know if an offer is high converting or not?

It’s fair to say, you don’t.

The vendor can give you all the stats they want. EPC’S, conversion rates, traffic stats (which could all be total B.S depending on the vendor) but they could all potentially mean nothing.

The only way to know 100% is to SEND traffic, measure YOUR conversions and track YOUR results.

You will no doubt kiss a lot of ‘frog’ products before you find a couple of ‘beauties’.

You also want to check out the funnels attached to the products you are promoting. (I’ll go deeper into this in another blog post)

Find out what upsells, continuity programs and high ticket offers (my personal favourite) are included in the vendor’s funnels.

But more importantly do YOU get commission on these.

Some vendors like to give you 100% on the entire funnel which could have a low price front end product ($7-$27) and 100% on the first upsell ($47-$97) but then they hit YOUR customer with a $5000 coaching package on the back end which you don’t get a penny of.

I personally stay away from these types of funnels. Promoting high ticket offers is where the REAL money is made as an affiliate.

If you want to learn more about leveraging other people’s ready-made funnels, promoting high converting offers and making high ticket commissions on the back-end with no extra work then check this out

This EXACT system has made me $1000 commissions in a single day. Just by ‘adding traffic’ to someone else’s funnel.

It doesn’t get much easier than that.
