Affiliate Marketing The New Way

Affiliate Marketing The New Way

Affiliate marketing the new wayIf you have just arrived on this blog post “Affiliate Marketing The New Way” it’s likely you are looking at how to make money with affiliate marketing or want to know what affiliate marketing is and how you can use it in your business.

That’s exactly what we wanted to know when we first started our online business back in 2010 because coming from a corporate background we had not come across it before.  In our world business was referred in a traditional way through word of mouth and networking and you certainly didn’t get paid for a referral!

Our reason for wanting to know more was that affiliate marketing would be a necessary skill we needed to acquire given that affiliate income was  to be included as one of the streams of income in our business and ideally suited to boomers and seniors.

What is important to know is that the internet is constantly changing and affiliate marketing today is definitely very different to what it was a few years ago – hence the emphasis here on understanding not just the principles of affiliate marketing but affiliate marketing the new way.

What is Affiliate Marketing

Let’s look first of all at what affiliate marketing is. We always like to go to Wikipedia for a first reference point and they describe it as follows …

“Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts”

Put simply it’s a way for a business to sell its products by signing up individuals  (“affiliates“) who market the business’s products for a commission.

As an online business owner affiliate marketing can be a very profitable income component of your business but you need to know about affiliate marketing the new way for you to maximise  your success and make money from the many affiliate launches available (and even become a recognised affiliate marketer) if that’s what you are looking for.  This of course opens all kinds of doors for you.

Essentially there are two ways to approach affiliate marketing.  You can either offer an affiliate program to others if you have a product to sell or you can sign up to be another business’s affiliate.

In this blog ‘affiliate marketing the new way‘ we are going to be looking at becoming another business’s affiliate. This not only adds an extra revenue stream to your business but with careful planning will be serving the needs of your existing customers’ and those of potential customers’ waiting in the wings.

By example, our business is in the online marketing education niche so anything that would help our audience to become more profitable business owners or save them time and money would be perfect.

These tools or resources should be able to solve a problem for them.  We are very careful about what products we promote and have usually purchased them ourselves and  know the value they offer (or come very highly recommended) before we offer them to our customers and potential customers.

The obvious advantage of being an affiliate of these products is that you have not had to create them yourselves and the business owner whose products you are promoting is getting additional sales of their product they would not otherwise have got so it’s a win win.

Well known sites where you can become an affiliate and promote are:

And if you want to find out about product launches that you can get involved with then you can subscribe to JVNotify

That being said,  affiliate marketing has changed considerably over the years and certainly since we first came online.   It’s therefore important to get all the best information on it so you can make the kind of income that you are looking for.

Affiliate Marketing The New Way

If you want to become a full time affiliate marketer then it’s important you understand your statistics and make sure you have the skills to be successful as an affiliate marketer.

There are many ways that you can supplement your income through affiliate marketing but always bear in mind how many units you will need to sell to realise an income goal.

For example if you were looking to make an income of say $2,000 a month and selling an affiliate product where you got say  50% commission on a $50 product that would mean selling 80 of that product.

However, you could also promote as an affiliate what we call a ‘high ticket‘ products where commissions might be anything from $1000 per sale to $5,000 per sale and even higher.

We hope you found this post Affiliate Marketing The New Way helpful in expanding your knowledge and education of affiliate marketing and wish you every success in your future promotions.

    Hello Jeff

    Thank you for your comment on our blog post

    We honestly understand that reading our emails over a long period of time you may be confused so we’ll do our best to explain

    Firstly you have to be aware we’ve been online since 2009 to put what we say into perspective…

    We chose to promote online business education and training as our principle affiliate offer and that means that over the years we can offer our subscribers programs, tools and resources in that area

    We chose that niche because it’s huge and it fits with where we started and why we started so we know intimately the need of our market…

    Which in turn means we change up our offers in our emails frequently to educate and entertain

    We don’t just promote one program because one size just doesn’t fit all as you probably know

    For instance our three main programs we promote are Super Affiliate Network, Six Figure Mentors and Legendary Marketer although we do promote others when we see something that we believe will be attractive to our subscribers and that we have purchased ourselves or recommend with good authority

    We also offer our own mentoring and consultancy services

    See here as it explains better

    The programs we feature all teach digital marketing or affiliate marketing and online business skills but just in different ways

    When just starting out it’s important to get good foundational skills and all of them do that in their own unique way

    There are then options to upgrade your skill base and invest in higher level programs

    This is not some kind of scam or con as so many think but just thought through logically how anyone in any field of expertise gets to be better at that skill set

    For someone starting out brand new we would recommend they choose one of our education programs and go through the training (they all have coaches and support) and see it through to the end

    Flitting about is not a good idea when you are trying to learn the basics

    When just starting out it’s important to get good foundational skills and all of them do that in their own unique way

    There are then options to upgrade your skill base and invest in higher level programs

    We know you have looked at various of our offers but clearly you haven confused so hopefully this will clear the air

    As you go through what we call the funnel of one of these programs look at the process because that is how you learn

    Go through the training then you can progress to become a master affiliate marketer in any niche

    Hope this helps but do write back and let us know if you need more information

    We remember how kind our mentor was when we started out but he did give us a kick when we needed it

    We can only payback by doing the same

    For you it’s starting the journey with the first step then progressing at your own pace but taking consistent action

    Everything else you see and read from us we hope will supplement your knowledge or give you additional tools and resources to get where you are going faster

    But at the end of the day understand we (like you will be) are affiliate marketers and we sell stuff to make an income and we want to teach you and thousands like you to do the same

    We’ve emailed you personally with more information Jeff

    Kind regards

    Chris and Susan

    Hi Guys
    I have had emails from you in the past and continue to receive them but I am completely overwhelmed and confused with all the info you have sent. Maybe I am bit slow or sceptical with all this online business all I want to do is earn a $1k or 2 a month to start so I can understand it all if that makes sense.
