How To Really Make Money with Affiliate Marketing

Most new affiliate marketers getting into Internet marketing do what I call hit and run affiliate marketing. It’s the model they’re all familiar with because it’s the one they hear about the most. The hit and run marketing steps goes something like this.

  1. Select an affiliate product to promote
  2. Send traffic to the advertiser’s sales page with paid traffic
  3. PROFIT!

I’m sure you’ve all heard stories of affiliate marketers spending $10K a day to make $20K? It sounds great doesn’t it? The only problem is these affiliates are not doing hit and run marketing. So what affiliate marketing model are they using? In the video below, I’ll show you an affiliate marketing model that really works, and will make you real money.

    great tip!

    Thank you for this video. It makes a lot of sense. I did not realise when I was advertising products that I was losing the leads after one sale. I have set up one lead page and am now receiving the e-mail addresses in my aweber responder and slowly building my list.

    This is the model I use that I learned from John. Rather than just trying to sell to my list, I sent out a survey on what their issue is and why they came to my site. This way I can offer them content and products specific to their issue, which increases click throughs and sales.

  10. Another great article! What i have discovered and what’s a common phenomenon in this industry is that people join thinking that its a get rich quick scheme only to end up being disappointed and lose their money. Value first then money follows! its that “simple”. Thank you!

  11. Hi John,

    Again and again, we see success as simply returning to the fundamentals. Build your brand. Create something helpful. Grow your network. Prosper. Stick to the basics.

    Most of all, DO NOT go in reverse. The affiliates you speak of try to take a shot in the dark. They start with getting in mind and give little thought to giving, to helping, or to building, then they wonder why the getting appears to be so darn hard. You give to get. That simple, timeless, powerful approach to building affiliate sales will never fail you. Give to get. Help folks for free, for a while, and these folks will literally pay you for your blog posts and email newsletters and videos by simply buying your affiliate products, by buying your own products, and by hiring you for your services.

    This formula is fool proof, no matter your niche; give to get.

    In your case, you made money through affiliate marketing by giving freely over a period of years. Folks bought into you and your brand, and trusted you, and with that trust comes sales. You sowed seeds, patiently, and now you reap.

    I’d note that staying in topic is key. I used to sell whatever moved. i effed up, because people got confused at my offerings. Then I chose to leave my struggles behind by only selling what I personally have or had used, and what I believe in. Night day difference because once you sell what you believe in folks can sense your authenticity from a mile away. It’s almost like you feared selling in the past so you just tried to sell anything, and failed with your fear-filled approach, then you believed fully in selling affiliate stuff because you proved to self that it worked, and that belief helped sell the product.

    Not you JC; just talking about most folk’s journeys.

    I will sell what’s changed my life, personally, because doing so inspires my audience to trust my opinion. It if helped me, it can help you, and my readers deeply appreciate my authenticity in all things affiliate.

    Just stay on topic; keeping relevant ensures that your sales will steadily increase, netting you a steady profit while you carve out your talent especial in your niche of choice. I will only sell blogging tips themed stuff now so even though travel bloggers have been knocking down my door quite a bit to partner with them I let go these opportunities to make room for aligned, inspired matches.

    JC, fabulous video, fab advice. Thanks for sharing with us.


  12. Wonderful posts once again John. I have learned quite about from your videos, and you brought out another one! I have learned that making one sale from one person isn’t enough, and I have lost out on more than I could have earned!

  13. Jay says:

    Well said John always build your email list first you can always sell them stuff later.

    Direct linking to a vendors product via ppc like you said is basically building someone else’s business.

    When I do PPC I am always sending traffic to my squeeze page:)

    Great video John. The money is in the list. Always has been and always will be! Really appreciate all your videos. Ray

  15. I like how you repeat that this is a business any business needs repeat customers no matter how small or how big without customers the business will go flat on its back fast nice job done on this video John.

    Thanks for the upload!

    This is a great explanation that anyone willing to make money should hear.

    Years ago I used to follow the hit and run affiliate model, this is one of the worst ideas I had, there almost only negative points.

    Spending money to get my customer instead of getting for someone else is one of the best lessons I learned.

    Thanks a lot JC.

    Great! video, Thanks for the upload!

    Great video John. It shows the process of sustainable on-line business and I think one important thing is the free product to people must be high value. They will think the upsell products must have massive values and keep buying products.

  20. KJ Rocker says:

    Great advise ,Learned this lesson a few years ago , definitely it is more profitable to build own brand/product and than promote other products via affiliate marketing to make most products

    HI Jhon Chow,

    Great insights about affiliate marketing success, all I learned in this video is building my own list to get repeated customer to my blog by getting email from our readers, recently I started affiliate marketing but not yet become successful in getting one sale.

    Thanks for sharing your experience on the importance of list building, I wasted my time for one year without building any list for my blog, from now onward I will put all my energy to build list, see you soon Jhon.
