Affiliate Dot Com Live! with Saj P

Saj P

The last day of Affiliate Dot Com Live! from Las Vegas continued with a presentation by another Clickbank guru with a one letter last name. Like Andrew X, Saj P makes money online by selling products on Clickbank. What’s the deal with Clickbank gurus using a single letter for their last name? Anyway, Mr. P is a 27 year old who was born in India and now lives in London.

Sai P started his presentation like most of the other presentations. He showed the lifestyle he was able to achieve because of the Internet. He showed his cars, his houses, his girlfriends, etc. Saj P claims he has trained over 100,000 people to make money with Clickbank, which is pretty amazing considering Clickbank has only 100,000 publishers.

Saj P says it’s really easy to make money online. There are only two steps.

  1. Have your own product
  2. Drive traffic

While you can make good money by promoting Clickbank products as an affiliate, Sai P says the real money is by offering your own products on Clickbank and have other Clickbank affiliates sell it for you. This is slide of his Clickbank business model.

Saj P

While the above business model is a sound one, Saj P did a disservice to the attendees by telling them to start out with what I call hit and run affiliate marketing, which is to buy traffic and send it to the Clickbank offer page. I’ve already explained why hit and run marketing doesn’t work in my Clickbank post.

Mr. P used some really one sided math and extremely optimistic conversion percentages to make the hit and run affiliate marketing model look like a big money maker. Saj P recovered a bit by recommending that you send the traffic to a presell page instead of directly linking to the Clickbank product, but then he couldn’t find the live example on his laptop.

Mr P. tried to do a live demo on what a CPA offer was but forgot the password to his Clickbooth and Copeac account (I guess he hasn’t heard of 1Password). He ended up using Offer Vault for the demo.

Like the rest of the presenters at Affiliate Dot Com Live! (except for Shoemoney), Saj P used the last 45 minutes of his 90 minute time slot to pitch his own $997 product. I kinda feel sorry for the speakers on the last days. I doubt the attendees have any money left after the endless $997 to $2997 product pitches from the previous two days.

Awesome stuff! I like Saj P’s model of simplicity. Makes a ton of sense and has got me thinking about launching my own product!

d3so November 21, 2010 at 8:56 pm

The model is simple to understand not one of those complex formulas.

Hey John,

That is a very factual reporting with a tiny hint of an opinion. Saj P is very talented and well known marketer who is all over the place.

I heard that at events like this sales pitching is required as the organizer makes 50% on all sales.

So the blame for the sales pitches overload goes to the organizers as well as to the speakers.

d3so November 22, 2010 at 9:24 pm

I wonder how shoemoney got away with it. Maybe he paid the organizers instead?

Robin Gupta November 23, 2010 at 4:18 am

So all bad thing happen to Saj P on the same day … interesting.

“Buy my course that teaches you how to make money by selling courses that teach you how to make money by selling courses”. Circle-jerk much?

d3so November 21, 2010 at 8:57 pm

lol it’s ridiculous if you think about it but it’s true.
I’m taking a different route, mentoring.

Exoclyps November 22, 2010 at 9:51 am

I’ve thought about that a bit. And the people that claim they make so much money and then sell it to us on how to do it. I get the image that they make this money from us who pays them to teach us how they make it.

Actually reminds me of a blogpost of John’s I found that was about a year old. Price down for a week to a certain price. I checked the product and it was still as “cheap”.

Email List Building November 22, 2010 at 1:48 pm

D3so,

What are you mentoring on? Is it about how to make money or something else?

d3so November 22, 2010 at 9:22 pm

I’m still trying to find a mentor on making money online. I found that I suffer from info overload and I need someone to help guide me.

Michael November 21, 2010 at 7:37 pm

I’m with you about pitching your product on the last day of the seminar, especially when a lot of people spent their money on the products of Marshall Sylver…

d3so November 21, 2010 at 8:59 pm

Well it’s not like they got a chance to get on stage before the last day. They have to work with what they’ve got.

Dan Lew November 21, 2010 at 8:12 pm

Having your own product is secondary, the best experience before jumping into that is to play with affiliate marketing and promote other peoples products to get the feel of things. If you are very good with search engine optimization and viral marketing you can make a lot of money from this!

d3so November 21, 2010 at 9:01 pm

I bet. You’ve probably made a ton of money from sellig your plugin haven’t you?

Exoclyps November 22, 2010 at 9:53 am

Yeah, it is a good way to start off. Reduces the risks.

But as everyone knows, more risk more rewards. Less risk less rewards.

Having your own product would net you more of a reward.

Email List Building November 22, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Everybody has a point. The main thing is to do something productive. Having your own product is the ultimate.

TrafficColeman November 22, 2010 at 6:42 am

Everyone seems to be wanting to run to the clickbank storm, because are realizing there is a lot of money in this and they should look to take advantage of it..

“TrafficColeman “Signing Off”

Brad November 22, 2010 at 7:37 am

I would steer clear from clickbank network, and focus other networks like CJ and focus on promoting popular hard products, as the conversion rates are alot higher and the competition is less fierce.

Exoclyps November 22, 2010 at 9:55 am

So true. And it is easier to promote some hard products as well compared to the clickbank ones.

Email List Building November 22, 2010 at 1:55 pm

Brad,

You have a point that a lot of people believe. On the other hand there are people who do extremely well with Clickbank.

d3so November 22, 2010 at 9:26 pm

I’ve never done well on clickbank. I need to improve on it.

Abhik November 22, 2010 at 6:49 am

That’s the simplest method he is using..

@John, your link to clickbank vash is broken, check that out.

Harshad November 22, 2010 at 7:20 am

The Gurus out there will always show you the nice and easy way to achieve success which will not work for most. No one is going to give out their real secret of making money online. There’s not one, not two but millions of secrets out there. One just has to test, try and improvise to make the most. BTW their real success is making them trust you… once they gain your trust, they become millionaires.

Exoclyps November 22, 2010 at 9:59 am

So true so true. By us trusting them, any product they would promote sounds legit and safe to use.

Not that they aren’t. Gaining trust is a lot harder than losing it. So why would they promote something bad… and that’s why we trust them ;)

Harshad November 22, 2010 at 7:22 am

I mean make you trust them.. flu is driving me crazy :(

Human Development November 22, 2010 at 9:25 am

Driving traffic to the personal product gallery will really make some sense to gain more that the other creation promotions.

Robin Gupta November 23, 2010 at 4:38 am

Own product is the base. If you have that than other people will start working for you though this will be in commission format but however they are working for you.

Just launch a product and let others to do hard labour to get the commission.

PPC Ian November 23, 2010 at 9:39 am

I agree, the power in the model is very interesting!

Pablo November 23, 2010 at 8:11 am

Sounds like it was a good conference. Too bad it ended on a down note. I think you are right about the one sided math, I’m still trying to figure out where his claims are from.

Chris November 24, 2010 at 11:11 am

About Saj I can add that he offers great value as you do. Besides, he is a charming person.
