5 Step Money System

5 Step Money System
The Business Model
This business model is purely and simply about buying a service at one price, and selling it for a higher price. This is known as arbitrage.
What we are buying and selling is Solo Ads!
There are two main reasons why this model works:
1. We are not limited to how many Solo Ads we can sell. This is because we are not delivering them from our own list.
2. Solo Ads are in high demand sell themselves. This means that you do not need write complicated sales ads to persuade people to buy, because people know they need them and therefore they sell themselves.
The 5 Steps required for the business model are:
1. Create a list of your go to Solo Ad sellers
2. Create your Sales Page
3. Setup your Solo Ads
4. Collect money from your Solo Ad buyers
5. Place your Solo Ad orders
Step 1 to 3 should take a few hours to setup and once that is done you will only need to repeat Steps 4 and 5 to make money, so this is a very light tough business model.
Step 1: Creating a List of Go-to Solo Ad Sellers
We need to find a very particular type of Solo Ad seller that are selling high quality clicks with good reviews, at price that is lower than the others.
Because of the demand on Solo Ads, the market has moved to a point where selling a click for 60c-$1 has become very acceptable. However many Solo Ad providers are still scared to increase their prices as they want to maintain their current customer base, so this is perfect business.
What we are going to be doing is selling out Solo Ad for 55-60c per click (or more if you want to try for a bigger return), which means we will be targeting sellers are selling at 35-45c per click.
The difference between the buy and sell price is the profit.
Here are examples of some what can be achieved: Clicks Sell Price Income Buy Price Expenses Profit
Transaction A
100
$0.60
$60.00
$0.40
$40.00
$20.00
Transaction B
250
$0.60
$150.00
$0.40
$100.00
$50.00
Transaction C
500
$0.60
$300.00
$0.40
$200.00
$100.00
Transaction D
1000
$0.60
$600.00
$0.40
$400.00
$200.00
Your aim will be to build up to at least one transaction per day, and then grow to around 3-5 transactions per day.
To get started I suggest setting up a new document, spreadsheet or text file and create a Solo Ad Sellers Shortlist. Record details such as:
 Name
 Sales Page URL
 Packages
 Price per click for Packages
You can find Solo Ad provided from the following sources:
Facebook
Go to Manny Hernandez Facebook group called “SOLO ADS TESTIMONIALS”. At the time of writing this guide this group has around 20,000 members.
Here is a link to the group:
SOLO ADS TESTIMONIALS
Link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoloAdsTestimonials
This will take you to this page:
You can join the group if you wish but it is not necessary.
Look for good feedback and reviews which have links to the Solo Ad provider’s page. Review their sales page and if they match our criteria record them in your Solo Ad Sellers Shortlist.
You can also search through other Solo Ad groups on Facebook. Try searching for “solo ads”, “solo ad testimonials”, “solo ad providers”, “buy solo ads”, etc. Through Facebook alone you should be able to enough Solo Ad providers to get started.
Warrior Forum
I have used the following Warrior Special Offers to find good quality Solo Ad providers. If you are needing to add more to your Solo Ad Sellers Shortlist, I suggest also getting the following:

Solo Ad Directory
Reed Floren has spent thousands of dollars testing various Solo Ad sellers and found out who consistently provides the best opt-in rates. Here you will find many suitable Solo Ad sellers to add to your Solo Ad Sellers Shortlist.
SOLO AD DIRECTORY
Link: http://www.soloaddirectory.com
Search Google
Search for “solo ads”, “solo ad testimonials”, “solo ad providers”, “buy solo ads”, etc, on Google and add worthwhile sites to your Solo Ad Sellers Shortlist.
Step 2: Creating your Sales Page
You need a Sales Page so our customers can order your Solo Ads. I have setup two sales pages which are:
1. A Classified Ad on the Warrior Forum
2. A self hosted sales page using WordPress
I suggest starting a Classified Ad on the Warrior Forum is you will get some immediate traffic. Make sure you communicate well with your customers and deliver what you promise, to ensure you always receive good comments and feedback.
To assist with setting up a Classified Ad on the forum, view this video:
HOW TO ADD YOUR SALES PAGE TO THE WARRIOR FORUM
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooI02ZEKv6Q
Your main focus on how to edit your thread and remember you want to be posting in the Classified Ads section and not the Special Offer forum.
Here are some samples of Solo Ads in the Warrior Forum Classified Ads section for reference:
 http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-forum-classified-ads/707296-john-kneitas-solo-ads.html
 http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-forum-classified-ads/998773-get-more-than-just-solo-need-reliable-clicks-converts-into-sales-denas-quality-solo-ads.html
 http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-forum-classified-ads/760547-amazing-solo-ads-top-quality-subscribers-superfast-delivery-buyers-included.html
Step 3: Setup your Solo Ads
You now need to get customers visiting your sales page and buying your Solo Ads. This can be done by working through the list below:
 Add a link in your Warrior Forum signature. This will provide additional traffic to your Classified Ad
 Join Safe Swaps and sell your Solo Ads to their 40,000 unique visitors per month
 Join Facebook Solo Ad Groups and offer your Solo Ads there
 Search for Skype groups about Solo Ads. These group are very lucrative
 Advertise or offer your Solo Ads on sites you found while building your Solo Ad Sellers Shortlist
Consider selling your Solo Ads at a break even rate to start with, to build up clients and get reviews. Positive reviews will also help your sales page convert.
Also once you have successfully delivered some Solo Ads to new customers, you will also start receiving orders through word of mouth.
The main thing is to get your Solo Ads listed in as many places as you can find to keep ramping up your Solo Ad exposure.
Step 4: Collect money from your Solo Ad buyers
When you receive an order make sure you communicate well with your customers. Ensure that you confirm you have received their order and when you expected to deliver the order by (you can get this from your Solo Ad sellers you have chose to deliver your order). If anything changes along the way make you communicate this as well.
The key here is to deliver what you promise to ensure you always receive good comments and feedback from your customers.
Step 5: Place Your Solo Ad Orders
Once you receive an order from a customer just place your order with a suitable matching seller in your Solo Ad Sellers Shortlist. Once they have completed your order provide the
details back to your customer. Please note it is important that you remove and details of your seller in your communications with your customer.
Conclusion
What I have just taken you through is my Business Model for one of my income streams. With this model you can begin making $20 per day quickly and form up to $100 per day with some effort. If you give this your full attention for a number of weeks this can be worked up to a $500+ per day model.
All that is required is you take action and keep focussed to be successful.

How To Create A $197
Offer In 48 Hours Or Less
So let’s be real. We are in this to do two things.
Help people & make money.
By offering products & services at higher price points, we need
less customers to make more money.
The problem?
It “seems” like a daunting task to put something like that together.
It sounds like a lot of time & work to create the value worth a mid
to high ticket price point.
The good news? It’s not.
I have built a system that allows me to spend the least amount of
time which charging a higher price point AND providing the value
that the customer expects to see.
All without creating a ton of course materials or content upfront.
In fact, what I did was stick up a sales page, a buy button, and
scheduled two emails in my autoresponder.
From that I was in business to sell a $197 offer along with a $47/
m recurring backend offer.
And I made sales.
Can you write just a sales page & two emails?
How long do you think that would take you?
Let’s say you shut down Facebook & email for a few solid hours.
You could hammer out some sales copy easily in a word doc.
It’ll be even easier because I’m going to let you cheat off of my
sales letter. Now don’t go and copy/paste the darn thing, but you
can basically change a few things to match you and your offer
and go.
Two emails? Might take you another hour if you are real new to
this stuff.
That’s about 4-5 hours of dedicated work to get started.
With that you will have a $197 product and recurring upsell.
So here is how your offer works.
You are going to dedicate about 2-3 hours of your time each week
to run the program.
What you are selling is an on-going bite sized step-by-step
training to accomplish a particular goal.
Maybe you are teaching golf and you send them a new lesson
each week on growing their skills.
Maybe you are a guitar instructor and each week they will be sent
a new video lesson with the ultimate goal of mastering the jazz
guitar.
There has to be an end goal. The ultimate thing(s) they want to
achieve from your teaching.
Each week you will send them a new email with that training.
Same day & time of each week.
Now what I did was create a video or a pdf or an audio for each
week’s lesson. Then I send a very short “here’s this week’s
lesson” email.
When I create the lessons I just add those emails to my
autoresponder follow-up sequence for that email list/campaign.
The beauty is in the automation. You create a new lesson each
week and then you never have to create them again.
Once you get all the lessons done over whatever set period of
time it’s then all automated you just drive more traffic and it runs
itself.
All your new buyers will be automatically subscribed to that list
and they will begin to receive all the previous emails in a drip
sequence fashion.
I also point out in the sales letter that each lesson comes with a
homework assignment. This is meant to make the training
actionable.
They have a week to complete the assignment, plenty of time. So
now they are taking weekly victories and by the end they will have
completed their goal.
This really makes this model a winner. Because you aren’t
dumping 2 months worth of content on them all at once. It’s
overwhelming.
Instead you are giving them bite-sized actionable steps with time
for them to do it in their own time.
Now, as for the upsell, I offer as a monthly recurring investment
and they get two very important key things.
1. Unlimited email support with me.
This is powerful. It’s the closest thing to private coaching without
killing yourself in calls. Email you can take your time with.
Email allows you to respond in a proper manner at a time you can
get to it. I rarely get an email from my recurring customers.
But when I do, I’m quick to respond and they are happy just to
know you are there.
Also you’ll have a record of your conversation with them.
2. Access to my mastermind group.
Simple enough, create a group on social media.. FB, Google+ are
both easy places to host a private group. They get access to this
group which also allows them a different kind of access with you
and other members.
Those two offers combined gives them the comfort that someone
is there to help. $47 a month is what I charge.
You could charge $19.95/m or even less, but I encourage you to
keep it higher for two reasons. People who pay more tend to need
you less, they are willing to take action. You want to be paid fairly
for YOUR time.
At $197 + $47/m I’ll gladly give people my attention.
It’s not $1,997 like I know some people charge but the cool thing
is the price is ultimately determined by you.
It depends on what crowd you want to have around you.
Doesn’t it make since to invest your time in people who are willing
to invest their money in you.
Someone who will happily pay you for the value you provide.
The folks who pay more respect you and your time.
So now I’m going to show you the sales page for the offer I
created for my own program.
Don’t exact copy it but feel free to use it as a base letter to work
with.
Here is the sales letter:
https://s3.amazonaws.com/JKennedy/Laid-
Back_Success_Letter.pdf
The best way to learn is to do it.
So what about getting this thing up and running?
Ok, well I listed mine on WarriorPlus.com
You could also choose JVZoo.com but I just have a special place
in my heart for W+.
You can setup your listing in there. You’ll need to create two
“product” listings and an “offer” listing that links those two
“products” together.
They have videos and instructions on the site to show you how to
set this up. It’s not difficult or time consuming.
With WarriorPlus you have the option to receive payments via
PayPal or Stripe. Paypal is a favorite among most in the IM niche.
Outside of IM Paypal is still popular but you might like Stripe
better. I do. Either one works.
Stripe links directly to your bank account. Visit stripe.com for
details.
Now write your sales letter in a word doc. If you have a
WordPress site, it’s easy to use a plugin like WP Profit Builder to
make a nice sales page.
Or you can hand off your word doc to a guy on fiverr.com and
have them put it into an HTML page for you for $5.
Also, I do believe both Word & Pages (for Mac) both have an
Export to HTML function. It works just fine for a simple page like
mine. Upload the HTML file to your webhost.
Then just make sure your sales page link matches what you have
in your WarriorPlus listings. You can get your buy button code
from WarriorPlus, just paste that into your HTML page where you
want the buy button or hand it to your fiverr guy.
Also check in WarriorPlus that you have linked up your
autoresponder. (GetResponse or Aweber)
You can do that under your account settings in W+.
So now go into your autoresponder, go to “autoresponder
messages” and create two autoresponders for the list you will be
using.
The first autoresponder is a “welcome email”. Just say hi and tell
them what to expect.
The next email should have the first lesson in it. It shouldn’t take
you long to write down or record a lesson.
What I did in my first lesson was basically show a mindmap
outline of what the course will entail and how it all links together.
Schedule the both emails to send out immediately upon purchase.
Now you have up to a week to create the next lesson and so on
and so forth. Easy peasy.
Another beautiful thing about this method is that once you’ve
completed all the lessons, you can then package them all up into
one complete product which you can sell for even MORE.
You can set this up for any niche. It does not have to be internet
marketing. It needs to be in something you love to talk about.
I personally love to talk about business with anyone and
everyone. Is there a subject that you are the same way with?
What is it that you talk about with everyone? You know what it is.
That is your niche. People who enjoy it like you do will come
along and buy and be a part of your community.
Of course, you have to REACH the community.
So how do we get your offer out there? You basically have 3
options… free social media traffic, no out of pocket affiliate traffic,
paid advertising.
Personally I prefer affiliate traffic. That’s not to say that any other
way won’t work.
Essentially what you want to do for the affiliate route is find the
community of people online in your niche.
In IM that is places like the WarriorForum, W+ & JVZoo
Marketplaces, there are also many more.
For the “bass fishing” niche, there is a HUGE forum, comparable
in size to warrior forum. Pretty much every niche will have a forum
somewhere, or groups on social media.
Finding your niche community is not hard if you are looking.
Find the people with big followings. People who have high ranking
blogs (they will also have an email list), people on YouTube with
lots of channel subscribers.
Connect with these people.
This is how I grew my business in IM, connecting with the people
in the industry. Do that in your industry and you can rise.
Just one high rank blogger with a list can bring you hundreds of
sales within a day or two’s time.
I give affiliates 50% on this offer FE & BE. But I actually don’t
have affiliates raw mail to it.
For me personally, I have other products out there that affiliates
mail to and puts people on my list. Once those people are on my
list then I email them about the offer. Generating my own traffic
and sales from my own list so I get 100% of those $197 & $47
payments.
Alternatively you can just pay for traffic. Running advertisements
on social media has never been easier.
There is a wealth of information out there on how to highly target
the right audience for your niche.
You can just as easily do a video sales letter, where you use
powerpoint and your voice (or some guy on fiverr’s voice).
Video presentation sales pages generally work better for social
media audiences. This is because they are in “entertainment”
mode and likely just want to poke around at images and videos to
fill their thoughts in between work and life.
Recap
Step-by-step:
1. Outline what you would teach either in a mindmap or word
doc. Your course should take them from point A to point B (B
being the ultimate goal) in a step by step format.
2. Write your sales page. You can use mine that I linked to above
as a reference if you’d like.
3. Write a sales page for your upsell (optional) for unlimited
email support & mastermind group.
4. Use WarriorPlus.com to create your listings. Connect your
autoresponder in WarriorPlus and link it to your FE product.
5. Go to your autoresponder and enter in two email followups for
your list (of customers who buy your product). One email is a
welcome email, the other email is their first training lesson.
For your first lesson I recommend showing & going over your
course outline in more detail so they will know what to expect,
also include a mini-EASILY-accomplishable homework
assignment. The first one needs to be something super easy
they can do quickly.
6. Connect with people in your niche who have big followings. In
the IM niche, look on WarriorJV.com FB Group or vendors on
Warrior+ and JVZoo. Inside and outside of the IM niche
Google search for high ranking blogs and offer the blog
owners a commission of profit from sales (50%) to offer it to
their followers/list. Google search high traffic forums in your
niche. Most big forums will have marketplaces. Also connect
with the top members on the forum (usually people with LOTS
of posts who’ve been there a while).
Run paid advertising on social media. Target people who like
high profile companies or people in your niche. Ex: In the bass
fishing niche I might target people who like or follow “Bass Pro
Shops” or “Bassmaster Fishing Club” or “Bill Dance” (a
popular fisherman). Now you know you are targeting the right
audience effortlessly.
BONUS TIP: In the IM niche, running a $1 WSO for a short
report is an easy way to get traffic & subscribers where you
can then promote your mid-ticket product to them.
7. Now all you need to do is sit for 2-3 hours and write a new
lesson each week.
8. Enjoy making some nice money!
Don’t let your own self perception slow you down. You have a lot
more potential than you think you do.
If you apply yourself and your knowledge, truly think about how
you can help others.
If you stick to the golden rule then you will never be poor.
Really make this about something you enjoy that you want to
share with others.
Sure you can take an all business “let’s just do what’s hot”
approach. But allowing yourself to think outside the box and go
after something you think about all the time.
That’s the ticket.
That’s the ticket to big ticket.
Zig Ziglar said one of my favorite sentences ever:
“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help
other people get what they want.”

course.
This
course
is
designed
to
get
your
email

Billed
with
local
business
owners
asking
for
you
help
within
the
next
48
hours.
No
matter
what
service
you
want
to
offer
local
businesses,
this
method
can
be
used
to
generate
warm
leads,
and
hot
checks.
This
method
involves
no
cold
calling…
No
spamming…
No
client
rejection…
…And
most
importantly
no
wasted
time
on
business
owners
who
will
not
be
interested
in
what
you
have
to
offer.
We
will
be
direct
marketing
to
businesses
that
are
actively
participating
in
online
communities
and
looking
to
expand
their
professional
network.
These
are
extremely
warm
and
receptive
leads;
they
expect
you
to
present
them
with
opportunities.
Before
we
begin
collecting
leads,
I
want
to
cover
a
few
important

Client
Mindset

Not
What
You
Think…
Turn
off
your
inner
salesman!
The
method
I
am
about
to
present
to
you
is
not
about
hard
selling,
it’s
not
about
‘proposing’
or
‘pitching’.
This
method
is
indirect;
you
will
be
approaching
local
business
owners
as
a
peer…
Looking
to
network
in
a
mutually
beneBicial
way.
And
we
are
going
to
do
this
by
offering
extreme
value
-­‐
but
asking
for
nothing
in
return.
The
value
we
provide
becomes
our
sales
pitch.
So
when
you
are
going
through
these
steps,
it’s
important
to
have
the
mindset
of
a
business
owner
looking
to
network,
not
a
marketer
looking
to
sell.
Sincerity
is
key,
we
are
marketing
to
online
networking
groups
that
respond
well
to
members
who
provide
value,
and
respond
negatively
to
salesmen
and
people
who
are
‘out
to
get
something’.
Requirements
The
only
requirement
to
book
clients
using
this
method
is
to
have
something
to
offer
them.
You
can
offer
SEO,
mobile
sites,
social
media
marketing
services,
reputation
management,
ppc
management,
design

this
method
is
versatile
enough
to
work
with
any
offer.
If
you
don’t
have
something
to
offer
I
would
recommend
you
offer
reputation
management
to
the
businesses
we
will
be
contacting.
It
is
a
hot
topic
right
now,
very
much
untapped,
and
it’s
easy
to
learn.
And
don’t
worry

if
you
don’t
have
something
to
offer,
I
will
help
you
develop
your

the
48
hour
method,
I
usually
approach
them
with
an
offer
to
help
them
with
PPC
and
media
buying
campaigns.
Many
of
the
swipes
I
give
here
offer
a
‘reputation
management
consultation’
because
I
Bind
it’s
what
works
best,
and
is
currently
a
hot,
un-­‐tapped
service
to
offer.
There
are
3
things
to
keep
in
mind
when
choosing
the
initial
service
to
offer:
1. Demand
2. Saturation
3. Your
current
skill
level
The
best
way
to
start
is
to
write
down
the
topics
you
are
most
knowledgeable
in
(or
could
learn
quickly
using
the
Google)
and
sort
them
based
on
your
level
of
competence.
Then
consider
the
other
two
factors.
Ask
yourself
2
simple
questions:
1. Which
of
these
services
is
trendy
and
in
demand?
2. Which
of
these
services
has
the
least
number
of
people
offering
it?
The
Internet
marketing
business
moves
quickly,
and
in
my
experience
the
following
services
have
very
little
luster
left:
1. SEO
2. Social
Media
Guru’s
3. Web
Design
4. Web
Hosting
5. Link
building
6. Press
Releases
7. Google

I
Bind
everyone
who
tries
to
pitch
local
businesses
will
start
with
one
of
these
services…
And
business
owners
have
heard
the
pitch
over
and
over
again!
Now
that’s
not
to
say
this
method
will
not
work
with
those
services,
I’m
just
pointing
the
ones
that
seem
to
have
lost
their
luster
with
business
owners…
at
least
in
my
experiences.
These
services
are
constant
winners
for
my
sales
team
and
me:
1. Facebook
Ad
management
2. Google
Places
Ranking
3. Video
Ranking
4. Reputation
Management
5. Mobile

6. Mobile
Site
Development
7. Mobile

These
are
HOT
topics
that
can
get
business
owners
blood
boiling
-­‐
I
strongly
recommend
picking
ONE
and
becoming
an
expert.
In
this
course
I
will
go
over
how
to
sell
each
of
these
with
the
48
hour
method,
focusing
on
Reputation
Management
as
I
think
it
is
the
easiest
to
book
clients.
Why
do
I
like
reputation
management
so
much?
Because
no
matter
what
else
I
am
selling,
I
ALWAYS
come
across
a
business
owner
who
has
a
problem
with
bad
online
reviews.
These
prospects
were
already
looking
for
help
when
they
just
so
happen
to
Bind
us.
It’s
the
easiest
sale
you
can
make!

Outsourcing
Services
Who
wants
to
do
actual
work?
I
think
everyone
has
the
wrong
idea
when
it
comes
to
outsourcing…
It’s
not
their
fault,
most
eBooks
and
guru
courses
will
tell
you
to
just
book
a
client
and
then
outsource
their
work
on
magical
sites
like
elance
or
Biverr.
BEFORE
you
start
pitching
clients
or
using
the
48
hour
method
you
need
to
decide
if
you
will
outsource
the
work.
I
recommend
doing
the
work
yourself
and
becoming
an
expert
in
the
Bield
of
your
choice.
Yes
that’s
right,
I
am
telling
you
to
do
actual
work
and
not
to
think
that
you
can
just
‘outsource’
this
on
elance.
The
truth
is,
at
least
in
my
experience,
the
quality
and
reliability
of
work
you
generally
get
on
sites
like
elance
will
leave
you
(and
your
client)
frustrated.
I
strongly
do
not
recommend
going
out
booking
clients
and
then
trying
to
Bind
some
freelancer
in
India
who
will
work
on
your
project
for
magic
beans…
It
just
doesn’t
end
well.
That’s
not
to
say
I
am
against
outsourcing…
In
fact
quite
the
opposite

when
it’s
done
the
right
way.
If
you
want
to
outsource
the
service
you
will
be
providing,
Bind
the
outsourcer
or
the
service
you
want
to
use
ahead
of
time.
Spend
the
money
and
test
them
out
for
yourself.
I
want
you
to
feel
100%
conBident
in
the
outsourcer
you
are
working
with
BEFORE
you
talk
to
a
single
client
or
use
the
48-­‐hour
method.
Nothing
is
worse
than
booking
a
4-­‐Bigure
check
from
a
local
business
only
to
have
to
return
the
money
later
because
your
outsourcer
didn’t
deliver.
It’s
happened
to
me…
Don’t
let
it
happen
to
you!
It
sucks

THE
FORGOTTEN
SOCIAL
NETWORK
So…
You
have
the
‘networking’
and
not
the
‘salesman’
mindset…
You
have
a
service
you
want
to
offer
local
businesses
(preferably
reputation
management)…
And
if
you
are
outsourcing
the
work
you
have
a
trusted
and
tested
outsourcer
you
are
conBident
will
come
through
for
you…
Now
it’s
time
to
learn
about
the
social
network
we
will
be
getting
our
leads
form.
Introducing
Meetup.com
Meetup.com
is
a
social
network
that
consists
of
local
groups
that
share
a
common
interest.
These
groups
communicate
online
and
have
‘meet-­‐
ups’
where
they
get
together
and
share
their
common
passion.
This
one
social
network
has
been
my
dirty
little
secret
for
years…

Why
Meetup.com?
So
why
are
we
using
this
network
to
generate
ofBline
leads?
Well
for
starters,
it’s
massive:
Meetup.com
has
13.31
million
members
and
almost
124,000
groups
at
the
time
of
this
writing.
If
you
go
through
this
site
you
will
see
groups
for
every
topic
imaginable
in
almost
every
city
on
the
globe.
Our
goal
is
to
Bind
and
market
to
the
groups
of
business
owners
who
are
looking
to
network
with
other
entrepreneurs.

To
Meet
Or
Not
To
Meet
Groups
on
Meetup.com
are
focused
on
having
‘meetups’
where
everyone
in
the
group
gets
together.
The
48
hour
client
method
focuses
exclusively
on
online
marketing
methods
to
these
groups.
This
means
you
never
have
to
attend
these
meetups,
and
you
can
market
to
groups
located
anywhere
in
the
world,
not
just
your
home
city.
The
groups
we
will
be
joining
are
business
owners
looking
to
network,
and
nothing
works
better
than
going
out
and
meeting
face
to
face
with
a
business
owner
as
an
equal
and
offering
them
value.
All
of
the
strategies
in
this
course
can
be
done
in
person…
and
depending
on
your
personality
and
social
skills,
it
may
work
even
better.
It’s
not
required,
but
I
recommend
going
to
the
meetups
and
offering
your
services
there
in
person
as
well
as
using
the
strategies
you
are
about
to
learn

to
jump
in

Our
objective
in
this
section
is
Bind
groups
of
local
business
owners
that
allow
mass
mailing.
We
are
going
to
use
a
non-­‐intrusive
email
to
offer
group
members
a
free
consultation
for
our
service.
Then

J
Finding
And
Joining
Groups
The
Birst
step
in
our
method
is
to
Bind
groups
to
market
too.
We
are
looking
for
business
owners,
or
people
who
can
give
us
referrals
to
business
owners.
It’s
best
to
start
in
your
local
area
when
looking
for
groups
because
you
will
be
able
to
attend
the
meet-­‐ups
and
meet
with
potential
clients
in
person.
This
method
does
not
require
you
to
do
either,
so
feel
free
to
Bind
groups
anywhere
in
the
world.
The
larger
the
city,
the
more
groups
and
members
you
will
Bind

but
don’t
neglect
the
smaller
towns
where
business
owners
aren’t
exposed
to
as
much
marketing
as
in
larger
cities.
Some
of
my
best
clients
and
easiest
sales
came
from
groups
in
small
towns.

by
logging

will
automatically
select
the
city
based
on
your
current
city,
but
feel
free
to
change
this
to
anywhere
you
like.
I
recommend
searching
within
as
large
a
radius
as
possible
to
return
the
most
results,
unless
you
intend
on
meeting
in
person.
Then
you
need
to

a
category
or
keyword
to
conduct
you
search:
You

that
business

or
individuals
who

The
categories
that
have
worked
best
for
me,
are
circled:
Community
and
environment:
I
occasionally
Bind
local
commerce
groups
in
this
category,
and
some
environmental
groups
that
have
websites
and
are
open
to
things
like

Career
&
Business:
The
most
obvious
category
to
Bind
groups
full
of
local
business
owners.
Movements
&
Politics:
Similar
to
community
and
environment,
I
occasionally
Bind
groups
in
this
category
that
contain
local
political
parties,
businesses,
and
local
authority
Bigures
who
can
use
services
like
reputation
management.
Tech:
Groups
in
the
tech
category
often
have
members
that
own
a
local
business
and
are
trying
to
learn
how
market
online.
These
are
HOT
LEADS

are

Mass
Mailing
Groups
Not
all
groups
are
going
to
have
the
ability
to
send
mass
mailings
to

members.
The
one’s
that
don’t

still
valuable
as
you
can

and
join

but
for
the
purposes
of
the
48
hour
client
method
we
are
going
to
focus
exclusively
on
groups
that
have
mailing
lists.
When
you
view
a
group’s
home
page,
you
will
Bind
a
tab
labeled
“Discussions”
and
a
sub
tab
labeled
“mailing
list”:
If
this
sub
tab
is
missing
from
the
page,
then
the
group
does
not
allow
mass
mailing.
For
the
48-­‐hour
method
we
are
only
marketing
to
the
ones
that
do
so
move
onto
the
next
one.
If

has
this
tab,
then
join
the
group
by

the

right
hand

Bind
it
is
the
easiest
and
most
direct
way,
send
out
as
many
messages
as
you
can
and
let
the
interested
parties
reach
back
to
you
so
you
can
get
everything
done
without
having
to
leave
your
home
ofBice.
But
there
is
SO
MUCH
more
potential
networking
with
group
members
in
person
at
the
meet-­‐ups.
These
meet-­‐ups
will
be
business
owners
who
are
looking
to
network
and
get
new
ideas.
At
these
meetings
I
always
Bind
at
least
one
person
who
has
had
a
problem
with
bad
reviews
online.
All
you
need
to
do
is
introduce
yourself
as
someone
who
cleans
up
bad
reviews
and
people
will
open
up
to
you
about
their
problems.
The
trick
is
to
be
as
open
and
non-­‐salesy
as
you
can.
Offer
your
advice,
and
even
tell
them
everything
they
can
do
to
clean
up
their
reputation
themselves.
When
a
business
owner
sees
value,
they
will
very
rarely
try
to
do
everything
themselves,
they
will
approach
you
about
doing
the
job
for
them.

GETTING
THE
SALE
By
now
if
you
have
been
taking
action
while
reading
this
course
you
should
have
received
a
few
emails
and
possibly
some
phone
calls
about
your
service.
When
you
receive
these
inbound
leads
it’s
important
to
remember
not
to
hard
sell
the
prospect,
these
are
group
members
and
you
want
them
to
sing
your
praises
to
the
rest
of
the
group!
Some
of
the
best
clients
I
have
gotten
with
this
method
did
not
actually
come
from
the
leads
themselves

they
came
in
the
form
of
referrals.
Let
me
explain:
At
times
I
would
never
try
to
pitch
the
leads
I
get
from
the
48-­‐hour
method,
I
simply
provide
them
with
free
service.
I
help
clean
their
reputation,
build
them
a
quick
mobile
site,
or
any
other
service
at
no
charge
and
with
no
sales
pitch.
These
members
go
on
to
sing
my
praises
to
the
rest
of
the
group
and
gives
me
MASSIVE
social
proof,
and
soon
the
other
group
members
can’t
send
me
money
fast
enough
to
get
the
same
service.
There
is
no
greater
selling
tool
than
a
happy
customer
who
will
sing
your
praises.
You
can
try
the
free
servicing
method
for
yourself.
Just
make
sure
if
you
do
any
work
for
a
prospect
at
no
charge,
you
at
least
ask
them
for
a
referral
or
to
introduce
you
to
other
group
members
who
may
need
your
help.
For
now,
we
are
not
going
to
offer
our
service
for
free,
we
are
going
to
use
a
‘free
consultation’
to
sell
our
real
service.

Scheduling
Appointment/Call
When
you
receive
a
phone
call
about
your
service
you
have
to
option
to
go
into
the
presentation
right
off
the
bat.
Before
you
do,
always
ask
the
prospect
if
it
is
a
good
time
to
discuss
it,
or
if
they
would
like
to
discuss
it
later.
One
of
the
golden
rules
of
cold
calling
is
you
NEVER
use
the
line
“is
this
a
good
time?”
When
cold
calling
or
doing
any
other
form
of
sales
call,
this
will
immediately
give
the
prospect
the
opportunity
to
say
they
don’t
have
time
for
you,
and
hang
up
the
phone.
But
with
this
method
the
prospect
is
pre-­‐sold,
and
is
calling
you
for
his
consultation,
so
the
rule
doesn’t
apply.
When
you
receive
emails
from
group
members,
which
happens
more
often
than
receiving
phone
calls,
it’s
best
to
reply
to
each
one
asking
for
a
good
time
to
call,
and
a
number.
I
never
reply
to
them
giving
them
my
number
and
expecting
to
call,
always
ask
for
their
number
so
you
can
call
them.
This
will
help
weed
out
the
ones
who
are
wasting
your
time
as
well.
Never
ask
an
open
question,
this
applies
to
your
email
replies,
or
when
trying
to
set
up
an
appointment
over
the
phone.
For
example:
The
line
“when
would
you
like
to
do
this
call?”
Is
nowhere
near
as
effective
as
saying
“I
am
available
Saturday
at
6,
or
Monday
at
5,
which
is
better
for
you?”
When
giving
a
prospect
options,
they
can’t
answer
no,
or
never,
or
‘let
me
get
back
to
you’.
Asking
them
to
come
up
with
a
time
has
a
much
lower
closing
rate
than
just
giving
them
two
options.

Free
Value
Method
I
have
a
very
simple
strategy
to
close
prospects
when
on
a
sales
call
or
a
good
old-­‐fashioned
sit.
My
strategy
is
to
teach
them
everything
they
need
to
know
to
do
it
all
themselves.
With
reputation
management
for
example,
I
start
by
showing
them
everywhere
people
can
leave
a
review,
and
where
some
of
their
worst
reviews
are
located.
I
also
show
them
how
they
can
Bind
new
reviews
each
week
to
stay
abreast
of
what
people
are
saying
online
about
them.
I
walk
them
through
the
process
of
using
social
media
and
press
releases
to
push
bad
reviews
and
other
bad
press
down
in
search
engines…
Then
I
explain
to
them
how
to
use
QR
tags
and
a
redirect
page
to
make
their
happy
customers
leave
a
good
review
and
the
unhappy
customers
can
complain
in
private,
improving
the
overall
reputation.
All
of
which
I
will
explain
to
you
in
a
coming
section
😉
Once
the
consultation
is
done,
they
will
have
all
the
knowledge
and
tools
they
need
to
clean
their
own
reputation.
It’s
at
this
point;
that
I
make
them
an
offer
they
can’t
refuse!
Price
Close
By
outlining
our
entire
strategy
and
laying
our
cards
on
the
table,
we
have
fulBilled
our
promise
and
delivered
massive
value.
If
they
immediately
decide
they
will
do
it
all
themselves
(which
rarely
ever
happens)
you
can
simply
ask
them
for
a
referral
for
your
advice.
They
will
be
more
than
happy
to
refer
someone
to
you,
and
more
importantly
they
will
feel
obligated
to
do
so.
When
I
am
done
with

“Now
I
know
this
may
seem
complicated,
and
in
some
cases
my
clients
have
so
much
negativity
being
said
about
them
online
that
it
takes
me
a
few
months
to
push
most
of
it
out
of
sight.
In
your
case,
I
know
I
could
get
everything
done
in
a
week
and
you
would
see
an
immediate
boost
in
your
business
because
less
customers
will
be
turned
away
by
all
of
this…
…and
I
strongly
recommend
you
try
everything
I
have
outlined
here,
this
is
hurting
your
business
and
it’s
only
going
to
get
worse.
Now
I
know
you’re
busy
running
your
business,
and
if
you
like
I
can
get
everything
for
you
and
solve
this
problem
once
and
for
all.
Normally
in
a
case
like
this,
I
charge
$997
to
clean
everything
up,
and
$497
a
month
to
keep
your
reputation
intact…
But
I
can
make
you
a
deal.
If
you
can
put
a
good
word
in
for
me
with
the
group,
and
introduce
me
to
one
other
person
who
may
need
my
help,
I
can
do
everything
for
$197
and
just
$97
a
month.
At
this
price
I
don’t
even
make
money,
this
covers
the
cost
of
the
automation
tools
I
use
to
speed
up
the
process.
For
me,
the
value
is
in
the
relationship
that
I
would
like
to
establish
here
today.
I
can
set
everything
up
right
through

would
you
like

get
started
today,
or
wait
until
Monday?“
After
you

this

SHUT
UP!
He
will
say
umm…
And
well….
And
he
will
pause
and
think
before
he
answers
you.
The
rookie
thing
to
do
is
to
try
to
sell
him
in
that

the
best

to

Servicing
Once
you
have
a

say
yes,
send
them
a
PayPal
link
to
pay
your
upfront
fee
and
the
recurring
payments.
I
love
using
PayPal,
my

never

with
it
and
if
you
are
just

out
it’s
very

to

and

immediately.
If

You

The

is

and
provide
this

to
them
in
the

Unfortunately
people
are
more
likely
to
take
the
time
to
complain
than
they
are
to
give
praise,
and
this
is
why
businesses
that
do
not
actively
encourage
positive
feedback
will
Bind
the
majority
of
feedback
they
see
online
to
be
negative.
The
Birst
step
is
for
businesses
to
approach
customers
with
and
incentive
for
leaving
their
feedback.
The
best
incentive
is
a
coupon,
coupons
have
the
added
beneBit
of
making
customers
repeat
customers.
I
like
to
provide
businesses
with
a
simple
website
with
the
following
headline
(example
is
for
a
restaurant):
“Give
us
your
opinion
and
receive
a
free
meal”
Under
the
headline
you
have
two
buttons.
One
reads,
“I
enjoyed
this
meal”
The
other
reads,
“I
did
not
enjoy
this
meal”
When
customers
click
on
the
button
that
states
they
had
a
positive
experience,
send
them
to
Yelp,
or
any
other
review
site
where
the
client
needs
more
positive
reviews.
The
negative
button
directs
the
customer
to
a
simple
‘contact
us’
form
where
they
can
vent
and
voice
their
complaints

in
private.
This
simple
system
encourages
good
reviews
and
keeps
the
bad
ones
in
private.
Providing
clients
with
a
snapshot
of
what’s
being
said
about
them,
Billing
Google
with
positive
press
releases,
and
establishing
a
system
that
generates
good
reviews
is
usually
all
it
takes
to
see
a
dramatic
improvement
in
their
overall

This
was

mistake

It

left
A

The
truth
is,
only

email.
This
are
more

tap
into
the

you

what
so

and
in
return
they
introduce
me
around
at

meet-­‐ups
and
provide
me
with
referrals.
In
my
experience,
this
results
on
average
3
referrals
per
‘freebie
service’.
This
method
triples
the
amount
of

you

and many more personal and external factors. We do not guarantee or otherwise promise that you will
earn any particular amount of money.
Who Am I?
My Kiddo and Me Enjoying the St Louis Zoo (Something living the internet lifestyle allows me to do
any time the mood strikes)
So just a quick heads up, this is not a typical ebook that you’d purchase from me. There’s no fancy
formatting, no structured chapters, no real flow, etc.
This is simply a down and dirty off the cuff view into one of the ways I earn money online.
But before I dive in let me give you the brief 30,000 feet overview of who I
am.
I started online marketing in 2005 and SUCKED at it big time.
I lost my butt month after month year after year until I finally had a breakthrough.
In 2010 I had my first five figure year.
Then, In 2011, I had the real epiphany of my career ­ I decided to stop spending all my energy
promoting other people’s products and started building my own.
In less than six months I broke six figures net and from that point forward never looked back.
Since then I’ve had a hand in millions of dollars in transactions online, yes millions.
Am I a millionaire?
Not yet I’m not, but I’ve managed to do pretty well for myself and realistically there’s no reason
you can’t do the same.
Here’s the inside scoop though ­ as fancy and impressive as all the above may sound, I made SERIOUS
mistakes getting from point A to B.
I nearly destroyed my marriage chasing this “impossible” dream. I missed out on time with my
daughter that I’ll never get back. And I sacrificed my health all to make this happen.
But NONE of it was necessary.
(These days my marriage is amazing, my daughter and I spend loads of quality time together, and I
hired a personal trainer who keeps my butt active at the gym six days a week)
The majority of the time I invested into my business was a total waste that achieved no measurable
results.
And that’s why in this pdf I’m going to show you how to avoid becoming another marketer who sits at
his/her desk 60 hours week while only getting
5 or 10 hours of real work done.
I don’t want you to go through the hell I went through so please, pay special attention!
I promise you I’ll lay out exactly how anyone can earn six figures per year while only working 2
hours per day.
(And yes, you get to take weekends off!)
In other words I want to teach you how to build a “Lifestyle business” aka a business that allows
you plenty of time to enjoy yourself while still covering your financial needs.
Let’s Dive In
So what business model am I going to show you today? Well I’m glad you asked…
The model I’m referring to is product development but more specifically software products.
By the way, I don’t actually do any programming myself. I couldn’t program my way out of a wet
paper bag.
Don’t worry if it sounds scary or expensive, its not near as bad as you have been led to believe.
(There’s a reason most successful software vendors try and spread the myth that it cost tens of
thousands to start etc ­ the less people making software the less competition they have to deal
with)
Software isn’t the only way I earn online but its by far my favorite because of the extremely low
time requirement and massive ROI it provides on my money invested.
But…
Before I begin let me address the big pink elephant in the room.
If this model works so well and I’m making money with it why would I tell other people about
it…and if I was going to tell other people why in the heck wouldn’t I charge a lot more than I
am?!?
And the answer is…I dunno.
Yea, I know I know… I should have some sort of brilliant plan to monetize this info but the
reality is I was sitting in the waiting room of a Dr office
bored out of my mind and randomly decided that I wanted to write this pdf if enough people were
interested so I threw up a post on my Facebook wall stating I’d create this product if at least 50
people hit “like.”
And because 50+ people liked that post I have my proof of interest. So I figure its like this; I’ll
write this ebook and hook you up for next to
nothing.
Then when you take action with it and have some success I’d like to think that you’ll reach out and
offer a testimonial for me that I can use for my high ticket mentoring program.
Yes, one of the ways I earn money online is through high ticket
($500­$10,000) programs.
Want to guess where the leads for those programs come from? DING DING DING, my software products!
Or heck, maybe you’ll decide by the end of the report that I actually know a little about what I’m
talking about and want to hire me yourself ­ that would count as monetization right?
I have to tell you ­ for a long time I have wanted to share this information with people but I
really felt like it would be a waste of time because the minute people heard the words “software”
they’d run for the hills.
I hope like heck that my fears are unfounded and you prove me wrong by taking this info and
changing your life.
Over the last three to four years I’ve developed and sold dozens of different software products.
The least expensive of these was a tool called TubeSpy that cost me $650 to build (I also gave my
developer a $200 bonus on top of that).
**I’ve actually developed software that cost less than that but I used them as lead bait or gave
them away as bonuses so technically I did not “sell” them.
The most expensive was an affiliate network called ProductPay.com (I sold my ½ of the company in
December 2012).
And even though over $4.5 millon in sales have happened on ProductPay,
it was actually TubeSpy that changed the course of my career ­ and my life.
You see, when I launched TubeSpy in the summer of 2011, my biggest month ever online was just shy
of $8,000 and on average I was making less than ½ of that… yet within 72 hours of making the
software available for sale I had over $52,000 in sales.
The #’s That Changed My Life
To put that in perspective, in 2005 when I started online marketing I had just been fired from my
job where I was earning $31,500 PER YEAR as a district manager for a local payday advance company.
And, TubeSpy was my FIRST ever software product. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing ­ I was
simply “winging it.”
Looking back, knowing what I know now, I could have very easily made
3­4x more money on that product but hindsight is always 20/20.
(For example, one mistake I made was only making it available for sale for one week before closing
the offer, forever.)
The bottom line is having my first ever $10,000+ day really changed my entire mindset.
I knew right then that I wanted to develop software for a living and I’ve been doing it ever since.
Hopefully you’re starting to see the potential here because now I’m going to show you how to
actually do it yourself.
Step One ­ Market Research
In nearly every marketing course I’ve ever taken I was told that I needed to find a problem and
then provide a solution to that problem.
That method works, and works well but I have to tell you I rarely go seeking problems when it comes
to software.
Instead, I simply look at what is already selling and model it. Notice, I said model, not copy.
Copying a product means you basically copy it exactly as it is, sorta like what Google did (in my
opinion) with Google Docs vs Microsoft Excel.
Copying a product is, in my opinion, very unethical and leads to a very bad reputation in most
cases.
In fact, just a few weeks back I saw a very large vendor venting on
Facebook about how someone had copied his software almost to the T.
I can guarantee you that person who copied it will never get a promotion from this person!
Google gets away with it because they’re Google but I wouldn’t recommend trying it as a “small
time” developer.
Instead what I like to do is find a product that is selling well and look for ways that I can
improve it.
Perhaps its confusing to use and I can simply provide a more user friendly
UI (user interface).
Maybe its missing some options that would make it a lot better tool. Maybe it has too many
unnecessary options and I can improve it by
“dumbing” it down.
The list goes on and on but the reality is, you need to not only improve a product but also change
the look/feel.
If you want to learn more about modeling I recommend you check out a book called “Steal like an
artist” which is a New York Times Best Seller.
I’m not affiliated with the book in any way ­ just read it a few times in the last year or so and
really liked it.
You can grab it on Amazon for around eight bucks.
Step Two ­ Wireframing
This is the part that most people seriously screw up.
Every time someone comes to me and says..James I hired a developer but the software he made isn’t
anything like what I actually wanted I ask to see their wire frame.
And guess what…
Every time they respond with..what’s a wireframe..or I didn’t do one. So what the heck is a
wireframe?
Well, I like to think of it as the “blueprint” for my software.
Could you imagine the result if I hired a contractor to build a house for me but rather than
building off a blueprint they just built on the fly based off of suggestions I gave them verbally?
The end result would be a disaster and that’s exactly what happens with most people who try to
develop software for the first time.
You absolutely have to look at your developer as a “robot.”
That robot is going to do exactly what your wireframe tells him to do ­ his job is not to design
the software ­ his job is to program it to your specifications.
There are several ways to create a wireframe. Here are some ways I like to do my wireframes: Draw
it on a piece of paper
I can then snap a picture of it with my phone and send it to my
developer
Use Powerpoint or Keynote
I used to do this when I started out but most often I go with option 3 now
Use wireframing software
There are loads of affordable options online for wireframe tools, many of the free versions
will serve your purpose just fine
How about I show you an example of an actual wireframe for one of my software products?

Pretty cool right?
I used a free software to make this image and then handed it to my developer. He knew exactly what
buttons should be there, what they should do, the lay out, etc.
And guess what, here’s a screenshot of the actual tool when it was finished.

Do you see how amazingly close to my wireframe that is?
Its all because I gave him a blueprint he could follow to build me the exact tool I was imagining
in my mind.
If you do a great job with your wireframe the chances of you getting what you want are dramatically
improved.
Oh, and it also reduces the cost of development because it saves your developer time!
Step 3 ­ Hiring
In all seriousness, I could write an entire book on outsourcing/hiring without breaking a sweat. In
fact, I’ve taken courses that cost as much as $2,000 that cover nothing but this one topic so
there’s no way I can get as detailed here as I would like to but I’m going to give you some basic
tips that will get
you rolling. (and trust me, these tips were more than I had when I was starting out)
Unless you’re a programmer yourself then you’re going to need to hire people to build your software
for you.
Either that or you’re going to have to learn how to program. And even if you do know how to
program, I never recommend
programming your own products unless of course money is super tight.
Its extremely time consuming and time is the most valuable resource we have. Its finite and can
never be replaced.
So how then do you go about finding qualified programmers to build your software for you?
Easy peasy.
I use Odesk.com and Elance.com (Both of these are in the process of shutting down for good, they’ve
merged into a new site called Upwork.com) for all my hiring nowadays.
I’ve also used Freelancer.com, Rentacoder.com (no longer around), OnlineJobs.ph, manilla
craigslist, etc.
There are loads of freelance sites out there and while they all have pros and cons, they’re pretty
much the same at the most basic level.
Simple toss up a job with a description of what you want build and then sit back and relax while
applications come in.
Be sure to keep your job description somewhat brief as you don’t want to give away your idea to any
competitors that also use the same freelance sites.
Once you have 10­20 applicants you’ll want to start the interview process. This is when I give
specific details on the job on an individual basis and
assess their skills.
Assessing skills is a bit of an acquired talent but there are some things you can watch for even
when first starting out.
#1 Ignore their previous work.
I’d say that probably every outsourcing course I’ve ever bought told me to base my decision off a
applicant’s previous work.
And for the life of me I can’t figure out why! Its just flat out terrible advice.
The fact is they can easily fake a resume.
So rather than trusting a bunch of links they give you and screenshots you have to go with your
gut.
#2 Pay close attention to response times.
The last thing you want is to hire a programmer that takes hours or days to respond when you ask
them a question or need to talk with them.
If I add a potential candidate to skype and in the middle of our conversation he/she seems to
vanish for several minutes at a time I simply move on.
#3 Check their profile to see how many open jobs they’re working on.
One of the biggest mistakes I made when starting out was not doing this..and it cost me big. One
specific project that nearly cost me over
$3,000 blew up in my face when the programmer quoted 6 weeks for the job but more than six months
later still had not completed it..and in fact he never completed it. I was fortunate enough to only
lose my initial payment of $300 (10%).
What I found out after the fact was this developer was working on more than a dozen projects at
once for a dozen different clients, there was no way he could handle it all.
You really have to keep a close eye on this because a lot of times what you’ll run into is a
“middle man” who is not a programmer at all but he’s out there bidding on jobs and then hiring
developers on his own to complete them.
Then if a programmer doesn’t come through for him he can’t deliver on the job and you’re the one
that suffers.
#4 Test them
Now, this is a bit of an advanced strategy but I thought I’d throw it in here for good measure.
If you have any friends you know who are programmers who you know
100% you can trust, have them whip up a tiny program of some sort ­
something that would takes them only two to three hours.
Then in your interview process, give the applicants the details of the test job and ask how long it
would take them to do this job.
Any that answer 2­3 hours hire and tell them to build it and give them a time limit of three hours.
Anyone that answers much higher, end the interview process ­ they’re either trying to overcharge
you or they’re not good enough.
Now, anyone that actually gets the software done in the 3 hour window is a legit programmer and you
know it.
The downside to this method is you’ll need to pay them for the time they work on the software but
it is very very effective for weeding out the “wannabes.”
#5 Keep your cards close to your chest
Don’t ever let a developer know you’re clueless when it comes to programming.
Consider yourself the owner of your company, and make them consider you one as well. They don’t
need to know you’re a solo person operation.
If you let them know you’re clueless you’re very likely to regret it.
When I first started doing mobile games I once paid a guy $300 to change my ad IDs in my code. I
had no idea what the job was worth and it sounded decent enough.
Later I learned how to change the id’s myself and discovered it was literally a FIVE MINUTE job!!!
So don’t think for one minute that a programmer won’t try and take you for every dime you have if
you let them know you know nothing about programming.
Step 4 ­ Development
The development stage is actually one of the least time consuming parts for the entire process for
you because the reality is you’re not doing much.
The key to being in business is outsourcing the stuff you’re not good at or the tasks that are not
worth your time ­ most people already know that.
The thing is, most people never get there because they’re afraid to let go of control.
One of the most beautiful parts of a software business is you HAVE to let go ­ unless you are a
programmer yourself of course.
With all that being said, there is a sure fire way to almost guarantee poor results with your
software.
And that is to ignore the development process altogether.
If you hand your wireframe to a programmer and then fail to speak to them until the project is done
its a risky move on your part.
You should be getting daily updates of where the project is at AND MOST IMPORTANTLY daily builds of
the source code.
I can’t tell you how many people I know who don’t do this and its unbelievably scary to me.
If you’re not getting regular updates of the source code and things go south with your developer
you’re basically just out of luck. You have nothing to show for your money.
If on the flip side you’re always getting daily updates of the source code this does two things.
1) Guarantees you have at least something for your money if your developer goes MIA on you
2) Keeps a fire under your developer’s butt because they know they have to turn in that new code
every day
Step 5 ­ Bug Testing
As you reach the end of the development process you’re going to take a more active role in testing
the software.
If you simply trust the developer that everything works properly then you’re likely to get a rude
awakening when you start selling your product.
I can’t really tell you what it is about freelance developers that makes them a bit lazy in this
area but in general I find that every product I develop has bugs when the developer first hands it
to me and says its ready.
Trust me when I tell you, do not ever take your developer’s word for it when it comes to your
software being market ready.
Instead its a good idea for you to spend a few hours yourself trying every button, every option,
etc that the software has ­ making sure that it all works as its supposed to.
Then I like to give it to a handful of customers to beta test for me.
If you don’t have any customers to beta test don’t sweat it, just pick a few friends that you trust
and have them check it out for you.
**Hint: If you’re struggling to find people to beta test I’ve found that
Facebook is an easy way to get people in the door.
Step 6 ­ Software Launch
Your launch is where the rubber really meets the road.
This is the funnest part by far because its where you get to see money actually coming into your
account.
But in all fairness I have to warn you, launches are a very complex subject ­ so complex in fact
that you’ll have no trouble finding $2,000­$3,000 courses that teach nothing but launch strategies.
I am not telling you that to freak you out ­ I’m just letting you know that what
I show you in this ebook is the tip of the iceberg.
It will be more than enough to get you going ­ and in fact in the right hands is more than enough
to earn low to mid six figures per year.
The other good news is, the strategy I’m about to teach you requires very little time, is low
stress, and can result in some very strong Jv partnerships in the future.
There is no technical term for the strategy and I’ve never seen it taught anywhere but I’m sure
there are other folks that have figured it out; of that I have no doubt.
I simply refer to it as a private launch.
Unlike a public launch a private launch does not require an affiliate contest, it does not require
endless recruitment, it doesn’t require giving away huge commissions, etc.
Instead private launches consist of me hitting up a few people that I know have laser targeted
lists for my product.
I offer them a 50% commission and set up a special landing page just for their list.
Then I allow them to promote the offer for 72 hours ­ many times with a special discount to help
encourage sales.
And when 72 hours is up the product is either no longer available to that list or is no longer
available at the discounted rate.
This allows me to add a countdown timer to the offer to help get people off the fence who aren’t
sure about purchasing.
The reason this method is so powerful is its a true win/win.
The affiliates who promote this way end up making more sales aka more money and I am able to make
solid money myself because I don’t have to pay out any crazy affiliate prizes, high commission
rates, etc.
Now, will I make as many sales as if I had done a public launch?
No, the chances are very slim of that happening but a real launch is a huge amount of work whereas
this is very low stress and can be done around a full time job if need be.
Remember, the whole point of this ebook is to show you how to make an extra $100k year while only
working 1­2 hours per day.
You’re always welcome to work more and in turn you have a better chance of making more.
Now, you may be saying to yourself…that’s easy for James to do because he’s got tons of
connections and while that may be true for some projects its totally false with others.
For example, when I launched Springly via this method in September of
2014 I had to go out and try to get big tshirt “gurus” to promote for me and many of them I had
never met or even spoke to before.
At the end of the day people are in business to make money and if you have a quality product that
they feel they can make money on they don’t really care if they know you or not!
**Tip:
Sometimes the fastest way to get your foot in the door is by finding someone who already has their
foot in the door and partnering with them. When it comes to my students I am always willing to
consider a partnership to help them reach more affiliates/customers with their offer so don’t be
shy about contacting me when you have a FINISHED PRODUCT.
Please do not contact me with “ideas” as I get way too many people who do that and never actually
create a product.
Step 7 ­ Updates & Support
A lot of folks get it in their head that their job is over once they’ve sold a product but the
reality is the people who make it long term are the ones that understand how important updates and
support are for your products.
Even the best products are going to run into problems from time to time. For example, one of my
recent software products called Springly which
pulls designs back from the popular web site Teespring.com was working
great but suddenly one day last week I got a flood of tickets at my help desk telling me it was not
functioning.
When I researched the problem I found that apparently TeeSpring had updated their own site which
meant that I had to update my software to work with the new site layout.
This was a chance for me to either a) let my customers down and lose
them for life or b) rise to the occasion and prove to my customers I was one of the “good guys”
that would take care of them.
Obviously I chose to update the product and within 3­4 days I was able to send out an update not
just fixing the problem but also adding several new features.
By adding these new features I went above and beyond what my customers expected and that really
goes a long way in building loyalty.
And make no mistake, a small raving fan base will outperform a huge luke warm fan base any day.
If you’re planning on building more than one product/software then you’re going to want your
existing customers to buy from you again and again..and to tell their friends about you.
The way to do that is to go beyond the call of duty every chance you get. Look at it like this, a
great update may only cost you a few hundred bucks
but the relationship you build with your customers is priceless.
Putting It All Together
As you read through this ebook you may be feeling like I left quite a bit out and the truth is I
absolutely did.
I didn’t focus on any of the advanced strategies for building a multiple six figure per year
business.
I didn’t focus on how to recruit affiliates for a huge six figure launch or how to run paid traffic
or any of the traffic generation techniques that can take you from six figures to seven.
And I didn’t go into large amounts of detail on any one section.
I did that on purpose ­ in order to give you the end all be all I would have had to charge you a
lot of money for this product.
I wanted to be able to give it to you at a price that did not break the bank. But all that being
said, I want to also remind you that the information in this
guide is MORE than enough to build a full time income through software
development. How do I know?
Because I would have LOVED to have this when I was starting out.
I had to figure it out all on my own, and even then I was able to make six figures within just six
months implementing this model.
Remember, the goal of this guide is to get you to just an extra $100,000 per year!
You can do this.
Don’t let fear stand in your way.
If you’re doubting your ability to do this thing long and hard about my story. It was less than
five years ago that I was struggling to make $100 day while
working my butt off.
This week I’ve been sick, like really feeling bad and laying in bed sick.
I have not sent out a single email to my list, have not ran any ads, and have not asked any
affiliates to promote my products.
Yet here are the stats from just my most recent software from just TODAY:
Notice, very little of that came from affiliates.
When you create awesome software people will tell their friends about it
FREE.
Do you think you’d be ok taking a sick day and still earning $748.42 profit? I know I sure am.
So get out there and make it happen! Yours for success,

your hottest prospects. They have told you that you provide something that

To do this,y ou will want to create ac ustom audience through Facebook and
put the audience pixel in the header of your shopping cart. There are several
ways to make sure that the right product is shown in the ad,b ut regardless,
make sure you are retargeting them with the product they nearly bought.
Again,w ew ant to target these “near misses” because they have proven they
are interested in your product,a nd the price was either right,or just barely 0仔.
One cool tip we use to push customers over the edge is to add a bonus or a
small discount through your retargeting,s omething that doesn’ts teal much
from your bottom line,b ut incentivizes them to 1fnish what they started.
Dot his,a nd weg uarantee that your near miss customers will be flocking back
to you!
TARGET ADS FOR SPECIFIC
PRODUCTS BASED ON USERS
VISITING THOSE PRODUCTS.
This next idea takes one step back from retargeting shopping cart
abandoners. 1ns tead,le t’sg o ahead and build an audience in Facebook,a nd
put retargeting pixels in your product pages. This way you can target visitors
to your site based on what products they have been looking at.

r今三三国—————-~
To take this one step further,yo u can even choose to only target visitors who
have visited ap articular product more than once! Thisw ay,y oua re isolating
people who are in a decision making phase and have elected you as one of
their main choices,a nd mayb e vacillating between ac ouple of options.
As wem entioned in the firstp ost,w hen your etarget,co nsider giving them a
sma l bonus or incentive to engage with you. Another way to use this
audience ist o build some trust with them,so in your creative highlight things
like your service,d elivery speed or warranty. Thisw ay youc ans ety ourself
apart ifyourp roduct iss imilar to whateverel se theya re considering.

TARGET USERS WITH PRODUCTS
IN A CATEGORY SIMIしARTOA
PRODUCT THEY HAVE ALREADY
PURCHASED.

Wet alk al ot about upsells,b ut here’s one great way to use retargeting to
drive upsells.
Imagine you se l shaving supplies. A customer may initially buy a starter kit,
which comes with a handle and a couple of razors. Assuming the initial
purchase goes off without ah itch and theyl ike the product,p ackaging and
fulfillment,y ou now have as atisfied custo .mre
This customer is now ah uge opportunity for retargeting. So,w hat you need
to do is create an audience based on what product they have bought. Our ad
creative w li nowp romote ap roduct whichc omplimentsw hat your customer
has already purchased from you.
Toc ontinue this example,yo ur user now has as et of handles and razors from
you. What else couldt hey need? I’m sure you’re la thinking,s having cream
and a brush! So for your retargeting to this particular customer,y ou can
retarget them with ads for shaving cream and brushes to compliment the
razors they already have!

So,to reiterate,se t up ar etargeting audience based on what your customers
have already purchased fromy ou,a nd serve them ad creative that pitches
complimentary products.

your sales page. This new audience will get tailored ads based on your sales
page which urge them to come back,ge t the sales while they are available,or
even give them an additional bonus or percent 0仔’.One more cool trick,m ake

HARD
digital products
It’s pretty damn trying to sell
as an affiliate.
INTRODUCTION
I think you’ll agree with me when I say:
Or is it? Well, not really…
Actually you can easily pick high
converting digital affiliate offers, get
traffic to them whilst building your list in
the process and sell products in volumes
usually reserved for super affiliates and
gurus….even when you’re a newbie.
And in this report I’m going to show
you how to become one of these super
affiliates for yourself even if you’re new
to affiliate marketing and don’t know
where to start.
INTRODUCING MY…
Knowing which products to promote is a mystery in itself.
How to get traffic to the offers even more complex.
Learning how build your list so you can promote via email is
beyond difficult.
Then actually getting that traffic to convert into sales is
mission impossible.

WHY
affiliate marketing
should I even listen to you…
what do you know about
anyway?
Why Should You
Listen To Me?
So you might be thinking…
So let me tell you why you should listen….
I’ve been doing this affiliate marketing stuff for a few years now. Particularly focusing
on digital products the past 2-3 years.
And I’ve gotten quite good at it.
And that’s a fair question there are a lot of fakes in this
industry teaching stuff they don’t know.
in fact…
In the last 18 months since NicheHacks started on JVZoo alone (just 1 of the
many affiliate networks I promote products from) I’ve sold 2,491 products.
And made a total of $32,954.22 in commissions
(and counting) to date.
6 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
Not to mention the thousands of dollars in bonus commission and cash prizes
for winning or placing in affiliate launch leader boards.
Often beating “super affiliates”, gurus and big names who have been around
longer than and have bigger lists than me.
Look at some of the names on the list below – huge digital-product vendors like
Memberspeed Inc, Shawn Casey and Walt Bayliss
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 7
Some of these guys have been selling digital products for years and have lists in
the tens or hundreds of thousands filled with proven buyers.
My list is much smaller and compiled almost exclusively of blog subscribers,
what most people refer to as “freebie seekers” which you’ll often hear touted as
being as good as worthless.
Yet I can still outperform these super affiliates, win the contests and make the
big cash prizes when promoting affiliate products.
Product vendors love it when I join their product launches just look what Adam
Nolan had to say after I joined his 7 day launch for the last 2 days only.
I promoted just for 2 DAYS yet won the contest
by a mile.
8 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
In fact product vendors love me so much that names like Adam Nolan and Alex
Jeffrey’s recently offered to do private promos of my products as a favor to me
because I send them so much traffic and sales.
When it comes to affiliate marketing particularly selling digital goods like infoproducts,
tools and software, I can sell them in high volumes.
Convinced I know what I’m talking about
when it comes to selling digital products as an
affiliate?
Good then continue reading this guide to learn my 101 BEST “HACKS”
that if you put into practice will push you towards ‘super affiliate’ status too.
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 9
PICKING PRODUCTS
UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE BUY
AFFILIATE PRODUCTS
No one is surfing the internet thinking “I want to give someone money”
and they definitely don’t want to hand over their hard earned cash to
someone like you (no offence), especially if you are currently a stranger.
Most of time people surf the internet looking for solutions to problems.
That’s WHY they buy products because they believe that it will solve a
problem they have.
So don’t go looking around the internet for “affiliate products to
promote” go looking for problems and then find the products which
offer the solution.
Then when you present these products to people as a solution to their
problems they will bite your hand off to buy them.
HOW TO BUILD TRUST AND
CREDIBILITY (AND WHY IT’S IMPORTANT)
Without trust and credibility no one is going to buy through your
affiliate link or on your recommendation. Why would they?
Who are you but a random person on the other side of the screen (and
possibly world).
You’re not a trusted brand like Amazon and you could be
recommending them any junk to get a commission. You need to build
up your trust and credibility. It takes time but it pays off.
■■ Make sure EVERYTHING you put out online is honest and true.
■■ Don’t promote junk.
■■ Don’t put out low quality content.
■■ Don’t sell something just to get a commission only promote
01
02
10 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
products you believe in and stand behind.
■■ Products you’ve used yourself or will be happy to use.
WHY YOU NEED TO DELIVER VALUE
(AND WHAT THAT MEANS)
Affiliate marketing is ALL about delivering value.
As you’re not the end retailer and not an established household name
you’re simply one of thousands of other affiliates promoting the same
products.
And to do that you have to be someone other than another “me too”
affiliate who is only interested in making commissions.
You have to stand out by providing value in everything you do.
So what exactly is value?
It could be top notch content that you can’t find anywhere else (like I
have on NicheHacks)
Or…
Better customer interaction and relationship building than everyone
else (replying to all emails, interacting on Facebook, chatting on Skype,
getting on webinars with your audience etc)
Or going the extra mile with everything you do.
Stand out. Deliver value and people will come
to trust you.
03
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 11
PICK HIGH CONVERTING PRODUCTS
AND HIGH EPCS
You might find the best product in the world but if that sales page
doesn’t convert then no matter how much traffic you send to it you’re
not gonna see many sales.
Pick products with a high conversion rate and strong EPC (earnings per
click i.e. the amount you’ll earn for every click / visitor you’ll send)
As a digital affiliate it’s easier to find this information than as a physical
product affiliate.
In the online marketing niche platforms like JVZOO, W+, Deal Guardian,
PayDotCom and so on all give you this information.
Sadly the biggest digital platform, Clickbank, does not. Annoying.
But you can use tools like CBEngine.com find out some information.
DON’T IGNORE REfUND RATE
Don’t get caught up in just looking at the conversion rate and EPCs
because if the product has a high refund rate you’re gonna lose a load
of that commission
And have pissed off customers too who won’t trust you to buy a second
time.
So wherever possible get information on the refund rate. JVZOO, W+ etc
in the IM niche give you this information.
Again Clickbank doesn’t but you can try and contact the product vendor
to get the details and any honest vendor with nothing to hide will reveal
this information.
If they don’t then be warned they have something to hide.
04
05
12 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
BUY AND USE WHAT YOU RECOMMEND
Recommending something blind is a sure fire way to piss your
customers off.
If you haven’t even seen what the product is offering or can do how do
you know it will help the person you’re recommending to?
The sales pages can, and often are, misleading.
They make promises they don’t deliver on and you don’t get what you
paid for.
So ALWAYS buy (you can refund if it’s a big expense to you) or ask for a
review copy (most vendors are happy to give them if they have nothing
to hide) and go through it before promoting to check it is a valuable
product that delivers what it says.
ARE THEY REPUTABLE?
No matter how good a product is if the customer support isn’t there,
the product vendor has a history of abandoning products a month
after launch or spams everyone to death afterwards then you’ve shot
yourself in the foot.
Check out previous products and see what the refund rate is like.
Google their name for reviews and opinions on them.
Check forums in your niche to see what people say.
Join their mailing list or buy a previous product to see how they
conduct themselves.
I’ve made this costly mistake in the past by promoting a product that
was good on first use but that actually had many major flaws and the
vendor had a chequered history.
Cost me a lot of fans – don’t make this mistake. Put an extra hour or so
into researching your product.
06
07
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 13
PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS ARE
ESSENTIAL
I touched on this above but it’s worth mentioning again (and again and
again). Products MUST solve problems your audience have.
And it must be a problem they are very aware they have and actively
looking for a solution to otherwise they aren’t going to buy from you.
If someone hasn’t yet realized they have a problem they don’t feel like
they need a solution.
No one buys digital products for the sake of buying them (unless they
are an addict and that’s a problem in itself) so you’re going to struggle
even the most amazing one to them.
GO THROUGH THE SALES FUNNEL ON
YOUR CUSTOMERS BEHALF
Sales page looking good and product being good isn’t the only thing to
consider.
What’s the whole set up like? Are there 27 one time offers to go
through? Can you instantly access the product after purchase? Do you
get what you were promised or need to chase it up?
If the set up annoys you it’s going to annoy your audience even more.
So even if you got a review copy and are happy with the product still go
through the complete process to see what happens.
SUBSCRIBE AND LOOK FOR SPAM
Nothing worse than getting a great product then finding out the vendor
mails nothing but promos, junk or spam to his list. Sign up before hand
and watch what he sends and if he seems like a list you’d like to stay
subscribed to.
If not then re-consider promoting their products.
08
09
10
14 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
DON’T FORGET THE UPSELLS AND
OTOS
There’s money to be made on single products but when it’s low priced
you really need to be adding in upsells, one time offers, downsells and
so on to maximise earnings.
A high converting sales funnel is almost necessary so look out for them
before you promote the product.
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THIS TO
YOUR GRANDMOTHER?
Would you recommend a product you’re about to promote to your
audience to your grandmother?
If that answer is NO then don’t send it to anyone else either.
This is a good way to get you thinking about whether something is
worthy of being promoted or not.
picking products
So we’ve covered how to pick digital affiliate products.
And that’s all well and good for the first step.
But what’s next?
Well, now it’s time to cover traffic and how you’ll get visitors to the
offers you’re trying to promote.
summary

CAPTURE EMAILS AND MAKE SALES
OVER AND OVER
No matter where your traffic is coming for before you send it direct to
sales pages make sure you capture an email address from your visitor
FIRST.
If you don’t you’ve essentially wasted all of that traffic.
Sure you might get a small number of sales (1-2% max most likely from
cold traffic IF you know what you’re doing) but then those visitors are
lost forever afterwards.
The product vendor gets their customer details but you won’t. So they’ll
be able to sell to them again and again and you (who did all the hard
work acquiring the customer) never will.
Send any visitor to your own website / blog or opt in page and capture
their email address before sending to product sales pages.
I send all my traffic to my blog where people can engage with my
content.
traffic
Well there’s a right way and a wrong way.
In this section we will cover the correct way to drive traffic as an affiliate for digital
products.
So read on….
TRAFFIC
sell
Without
any affiliate products.
you will never
13
16 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
This warms even the coldest traffic up and makes them WANT to join
my list.
From there I can further engage with them and eventually recommend
an affiliate product when they are at their most engaged meaning
increased sales.
WHY SENDING DIRECT TRAFFIC IS
DUMB!
To further touch on the point above about not sending traffic direct to
sales pages.
If you do that you do not have a business.
Without customers details (name, email address etc) you have nothing.
You’re just someone who builds other peoples businesses for them by
sending them customers.
Every real business, offline and online, has a customer list. If you don’t
you’re just “making money” not running a business.
And if somehow your source of “leads” dries up (i.e. Google kicks you
out of the rankings or you get banned from the FB Ads platform) then
you have nothing to show for it.
BLOG TO BUILD UP TRUST AND
INCREASE SALES
I might be biased on this point being a blogger but I think it’s justified.
Whenever I enter a product launch affiliate competition I come in the
top 3 spots. More often than not being 1st or 2nd (and usually missing
out by just a sale or two on first place).
I out-place affiliates who are big time digital product vendors, gurus
and super affiliates, and have been around for years.
Many of them have much bigger lists than me (my list is relatively
small) and lists solely of buyers (of their products) so they should be
14
15
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 17
beating me in these competitions.
My list is made up just of blog subscribers. 99% of my list have never
bought anything directly from me (I’ve not been selling products all year
until now).
This is because I run a high quality blog filled with free, valuable,
content.
I give away a ton of value upfront before even asking you to opt in let
alone buy anything.
This builds up a lost of trust on the front end.
So when I finally do come to promoting an affiliate product most people
don’t even think twice about buying, they trust me enough to purchase.
That’s why I believe running a blog is the best way to make affiliate
sales. Not through giving away a freebie on a squeeze page or selling
digital products to build your list.
Both those methods CAN and DO work but not nearly as effectively in
my experience as using a blog to generate traffic.
OFFERING FREEBIES LIKE THIS SUCKS
AND WON’T MAKE YOU MONEY
This is such a touted method by people claiming it’s a great way to
make money from affiliate marketing.
But really it sucks and I haven’t seen it work for years.
If you’re sending cold traffic to a squeeze page / email capture page in
exchange for a freebie then trying to follow up with affiliate emails then
you’re in for a tough time.
Cold traffic to a colder squeeze page is a hard way to build a responsive
list.
Sure squeeze pages can get up to 70-80% opt in rates if highly
optimized.
BUT:
Most of those people who opted in did so to get something for free not
because they wanted to get follow up emails from you.
16
18 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
They have no relationship with you and more often than not have no
idea who you are.
Many will enter fake or secondary emails or unsubscribe / mark as
spam any emails you send them.
So even if you do give them a real high quality freebie it changes
nothing as most won’t and don’t want to read them.
People do not value free stuff so many will never read it anyway, they
just grabbed it as it was on offer and then stored it on their hard drive
for it to gather digital dust and never get read.
This is a HARD way to build a responsive list who wants to open your
emails and buy through your affiliate links.
HOW TO USE FREE TRAFFIC TO MAKE
AFFILIATE SALES
When you’re starting you’re probably not going to want to spend money
on traffic or understand HOW to do it anyway.
So free traffic like from content marketing, social media, video, forums
etc is likely your method of choice.
This is fine but it takes time AND never ever sends this traffic direct to
affiliate products.
Always send back to your own website first so you can capture emails
and engage with them to warm them up.
THE BEST SOURCE OF TRAFFIC FOR
AFFILIATE SALES
This is the grand daddy of all affiliate traffic – EMAIL TRAFFIC!
The traffic that will buy more than any other form of traffic.
Why? Because for someone to give you their email address and then
open and read your emails is the ultimate sign of trust.

No one wants their inbox bombarded with junk emails. It’s hard enough
for most of us to keep up with the good stuff we want to read.
If someone has WILLINGLY (not been FORCED to just to get some
information) joined your list they like you and want to hear more from
you in most cases.
So they are warmed up and engaged and ready to hear what you have
to say.
And that means they are very close (if not ready) to buy from you if you
recommend something.
It doesn’t mean you can simply bombard them with affiliate offers as
soon as they join your list, that’d be stupid and counter productive.
You still have to nurture them with high quality content, value, and email
exclusives too.
But…
Email traffic is far more engaged than any other source and gives a far
better return on investment than any other traffic.
So:
Build up your email list and build up that relationship then when it
comes to time to promote something your list will bite your hand off to
buy.
ARE YOU A REAL BUSINESS?
Real business can afford to pay for advertising.
If you’re running a business then so can you.
Before you start throwing money at paid ads you need to know your
numbers.
How much is a customer worth to you?
When you know that you then know how much you can afford to spend
to acquire a new customer.
Digital Marketer explains this process much easier than I can here….

Paid traffic is great as it can be scaled up almost indefinitely when you
know your numbers and have your ads in place.
If you know a customer is worth $20 to you and you’re able to get a new
customer through, let’s say a Facebook Ad for $2 then you’re going to
make $18 profit for every new customer you get.
But remember EMAIL TRAFFIC is the most warmed up traffic and likely
to buy so get that paid traffic onto your email list BEFORE you try and
sell to them.
It’s very hard to convert cold traffic into sales anyway. I know guys who
make a very generous living from this but they know their numbers to
every last detail, have tiny margins and they spend a LOT of money in
tracking and testing things before they have a profitable campaign.
And really they don’t have a business as they aren’t building a list so
if their traffic source was turned off (banned from FB Ads for example)
they’d suddenly not have any income.
This is not sustainable.
Capture emails and further build relationship BEFORE trying to send to
a sales page.

So now you know how to get traffic as a digital product affiliate.
But getting that traffic is only 1 part of the puzzle.
You have to capture that traffic and turn it into
loyal and raving fans if you want to have any long
term success with affiliate marketing.
So how do you do that?
Easy…
Build your email list and watch as your traffic (and
income) soar.

DO ‘THIS’ THEN ASK FOR EMAILS
We’ve touched about this earlier in the report but to give you a little
more insight into it…
All traffic, whether from SEO, paid, social media or whatever should be
funnelled towards a content rich site that gives away value up front for
free.
THEN:
After they’ve consumed your free content you ask them for an email
address.
Either through:
■■ A pop up offering a problem solving lead magnet related to the
type of post they use (e.g. a post on blog traffic should offer a

■■ A content upgrade offering some additional content related to
the post that they can only access by entering their email.
The best example I can show of this is on this post on NicheHacks
which the pop up converted at 81.30% (crazy!)…
http://nichehacks.com/how-to-write-emails-that-win-affiliatecompetitions/
I showed people how to write emails that win affiliate competitions then
as a content upgrade I exchanged their email address for the 6 emails I
used to make over $8K and win a recent product launch competition.
It’s an irresistible incentive that people will happily enter their email
address in to get.
This is the best way to build a responsive email list that loves to buy
your affiliate recommendations.
USE HEADLINES THAT WORK SO MORE
PEOPLE READ
In order to sell affiliate products via emails people obviously have to
open your emails.
If you’ve built your list properly (via a content rich site like I’ve talked
about above) this is much easier.
BUT:
Solid headlines with proven formulas are a guaranteed way to increase
your open rates and get more people seeing your affiliate links.
Use this guide to instantly write better headlines that are proven to
increase open rates (and therefore increase affiliate link clicks)…

21
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 23
USE THESE HEADLINE MODIFIERS TO
INCREASE OPENS AND SALES
I do a lot of testing when it comes to email marketing.
One of my most recent tests was to see if adding “modifiers” to the end
of headline titles would increase open rates.
If you’re on my list you’ll have seen me using [Fresh Content] and [New
Content] among others at the end of my headlines.
Turns out these modifiers NEVER lower open rate but can increase open
rates up to 6.25%
Here’s the best modifiers…
■■ [In-Depth Content] – 6.25% increase
■■ [Most Loved Content] – 5.26% increase
■■ [Not Available Anywhere Else] – 5.26% increase
■■ [Popular Content] – 4.76% increase
■■ [Fresh Content] – 2.78% increase
■■ [New Content] – 1.7% increase
So if your open rates are up more people are seeing your affiliate links
and more likely to click them.
USE YOUR HEADLINE TEXT AS YOUR
CTA FOR INCREASE CONVERSIONS
This is a sneaky little trick I haven’t seen written anywhere else but
works like crazy. People open your emails because they liked the
headline.
Turn your link into a call to action using the same headline for increased
clicks. So if your headline was “31 Ways To Promote A Blog Post” that
should also be your link text.
This gets more people clicking on your affiliate links.
22
23
24 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
CLICKABLE IMAGES GET MORE
VISITORS ON THE SALES PAGE
People are enticed to click images. Even basic images made in paint
increase conversions.
I used images like the following and saw an increase of 5% in clicks….
Imagine if you created something which actually looks good?
URGENCY WORKS TO INCREASE
CONVERSIONS
Nothing gets people clicking more than urgency.
If the offer you’re sending is time sensitive or limited in time then really
push that
home to get people clicking NOW.
You don’t want them delaying until later.
Don’t use this when there is no sense or urgency however as it leads to
annoyance
But if that offer is about to expire or increase in time make sure you
hammer that point home and explain if they don’t take the action now
they’ll miss out.
24
25
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 25
sCARCITY WORKS TOO
There’s nothing like telling people something is in high demand but low
availability to get them to snap it up.
Only use when it’s genuinely scarce otherwise it just become a scammy
sales tactic.
If it’s limited to 100 copies or ‘X’ amount of copies before a price rise be
sure to really focus on that and you’ll increase your affiliate sales.
DOUBLE YOUR OPEN & CLICK RATES
AND YOUR SALES
Not every headline will appeal to all your subscribers and sometimes
we miss emails or were too busy to read it.
So 12-24hrs later you should re-send the same email with a different
headline.
I often double my open rates using this method.
In the example below you can see how on a recent promo campaign I
received a 55.8% total open rate through re-sending twice to unopens.
If I hadn’t re-sent it would have stayed at 24.4% which was the original
open rate
26
27
26 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
IMAGES CAUSE EMAILS TO GO TO
SPAM. BULLSH*T!
I often see people say that including images in emails lowers open
rates because messages are more likely to go to spam yet I’ve never
seen any of them back it up.
Amazon has images in all their emails.
Digital Marketer, email marketing gurus, always have images in their
emails and they test EVERYTHING.
My emails with images always have normal open rates and INCREASED
click rates.
Images work. People click them.
It can be a simple image with a call to action. It can be a screenshot or
some date. It can be purchase proof.
People click images so use them to increase click through rate and up
sales.
IF YOU’RE NOT TESTING AND
TRACKING YOU’RE NOT A MARKETER
Unless you’re testing and tracking you’re not a marketer.
Marketers make decisions based on data and results not on feelings.
You’re just throwing spaghetti at a wall and seeing what sticks.
When you test and track you can get systems and formulas in place
that you can copy over and over again to see guaranteed results.
Test and track what makes people open your emails, read your posts,
click your links and do more of it.

WRITE A TEMPLATE ONCE AND RE-USE
TO SAVE TIME
I have 6 different email formulas I use in most
promo campaigns
■■ results
■■ FAQ
■■ bonus
■■ final warning
■■ checklist
■■ story telling
more revealed below…
I have outlines for each of these email types that I use in every
campaign changing details where necessary. It speeds up creating my
affiliate promo emails by ten times at least.
SEGMENT YOUR EMAIL LIST FOR
INCREASED COMMISSIONS
A sure fire way to increase clicks & make more affiliate sales is to
segment your list into groups based on interests.
You can do this based on emails they’ve opened and clicked before.
So you know if someone clicked an email about Amazon marketing
they have some sort of interest in the subject and probably would take
interest in a product about it.
If you’re whole list is unsegmented and you have people into Amazon,
SEO, Blogging and a dozen other subjects you’re going to have a lot of
people totally uninterested in what you’re promoting to them leading to
low conversion rates and a lot of unsubscribe and complaints.
Next time you’re sending out an Amazon promotion or topic send it to
this segment and watch click rates soar, conversion rates skyrocket
and commissions increase.
30

EMAIL REGULARLY TO BUILD TRUST
The only thing worse than a marketer who emails too much is one who
doesn’t email often enough.
If you don’t stay fresh in the mind of your audience most of them will
forget you.
They are on dozens of lists and are joining more day in day out – don’t
get forgotten.
How many times has it happened to you that you’ve received an email
out the blue from someone whose name you don’t recognize and you’re
not sure if it’s spam or something you genuinely signed up for?
You just end up unsubscribing or hitting spam.
Mail regularly. At least twice a week.
SEND EMAIL EXCLUSIVES TO MAKE
YOUR LIST VALUED
If you want people to buy your product recommendations you have to
send them stuff other than promotions.
If you’ve got a blog you’ll send them notifications about new blog posts.
But you should also send them email exclusives so that it’s worth them
being on your list and makes them feel like unsubscribing would be a
bad choice.
EMAIL OFTEN DURING AFFILIATE
COMPETITIONS
During product launch competitions you should email once in the
morning and then again at night.
I’ll either email 2 totally different emails to all my list or if emailing
32

34
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 29
the same email again do a re-send to unopens with a completely new
headline totally different from the first.
I can double or even triple my open rates doing this and my complaint
and unsubscribe rate is very low.
DON’T USE THE SAME HEADLINE OVER
AND OVER
As I mentioned above if you’re re-sending an email or a very similar one
make sure the headline is very different from the first.
The reason?
A lot of people didn’t open it as it didn’t appeal to them so they probably
aren’t going to open up a near identical one.
USE COUNTDOWN TIMERS….
IN EMAILS!
We’ve all seen countdown timers on sales pages.
But what about in emails?
Yeah the Digital Marketer team have just released a great new plugin
called OuttaTimrr that lets you add a countdown timer inside your
email.
Guaranteed to increase urgency and shoot up email open rates.

The best way to keep your list engaged, opening and clicking, and

WRITE RESULTS BASED EMAILS FOR
SOLID RESULTS
Nothing works better than a strong results based email where you say
real life results from using the affiliate product in action.
People can refuse to believe your words but they can’t argue with raw
data and results.

If a product made you sales show your Paypal account.
If it ranked your website show it in Google.
If it helped you lose weight put up before and after shots.
Results based emails are the biggest sellers in my affiliate campaigns
accounting for 30.85% overall on average.
WRITE REVIEW EMAILS BECAUSE
THEY CONVERT
Review the products in your emails. People like to read honest reviews,
good AND bad, of products. Give it a fair evaluation and not just being
positive to try and secure the sale.
BONUS EMAILS INCREASE SALES
In every single 1 of my email affiliate campaigns I will include an email
dedicated to hammering home the exclusive bonuses I’m offering.
Make them relevant and unique and well worth buying alone. Then send
out an email or two about them solely as well as mentioning them in all
other emails.
These account for 10.28% of overall sales I make on every campaign on

EVERYONE LOVES A STORY –
WHAT’S YOURS?
Everyone loves a story and yours are unique.
Write about something that happened in your everyday life and tie it in
with a lesson to be learned.
It’s easier than it sounds – what’s been going on in your life? What
major events have happened? What’s currently trending?
Talk about it and then tie it in with a lesson.
The first thing to do before you go writing a story is to work out what
lesson you want to teach first.
Is it that if you hesitate you miss out when it comes to investing in
products?
That you have to do more of what works in marketing?
That you should copy those who have already achieved what you
want to achieve?
That business owners invest in their business?
Work that out first and then think about the story. It makes it much
easier to tie in your message.
Story emails count for 10.24% of all sales on average in my affiliate
promotions.
DON’T FORGET THE FAQS
Everyone has questions about products.
In fact for most products in your niche the questions will be quite
similar time after time.
Create a list of common questions and re-use them with some changes
to suit the product launch.
Here are the most common in the online marketing niche..
43
44
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 35
These are the most common questions asked in
any launch IME
■■ I’m on a budget can I do this on a shoestring?
■■ I’m not a good writer can I still do this?
■■ Are there upsells needed to get this to work?
■■ Can this be done in ANY niche?
■■ Is this product really responsible for people making $X or
achieving ‘X’ result?
■■ Is EVERYTHING I need included in the product or do I have to
buy additional stuff to get it to work?
■■ I’ve no existing list or audience is that OK?
■■ Can a newbie who’s never done this before really do this?
■■ I’m not very technical can I manage this?
■■ IS this legit as it seems too good to be true?
■■ Is there any proof this works?
■■ Are there any bonuses available with this?
■■ Are there any upsells and OTOs?
These FAQ emails account for a big 11.65% sales on average in my
promotions.
THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING!
Most affiliate sales will come on the first and last day of the promotion.
When the launch is about to come to an end and the price rise or it goes
offline people buy for fear of missing out.
I usually send 3 emails on the last day to catch anyone who didn’t buy
yet and can often get a third extra sales on this final day.
These emails are nice and simple just warning people that it’s about to
go offline / rise in price and that they need to act fast.
They count for 21.65% of all my sales on average in affiliate
promotions.
45
36 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
WHY NOT DO A CASE STUDY?
Everyone loves a case study.
Show you or another member of your audience using the product.
Put it through its paces and see what happens.
They convert much better than bland and generic hyped up emails with
no substance.
OFFER HIGH QUALITY BONUSES AND
WATCH SALES ROCKET
High quality, unique, bonuses can send
conversion rates and sales through the roof.
People buy products I’m promoting as an affiliate just to get the
bonuses even though they don’t want the main product.
So we’re not talking about a load of junk PLR you have clogging up your
hard drive.
We’re not talking about generic bonuses for every promo.
But solid high quality bonuses closely related to the product.
Some recent bonuses I’ve given away were:
115 Profitable Info-Product Niches on a launch of a product on how to
create an info-product.
A FB ads case study showing how I went from my ads converting at
less than 1% to over 5% on a launch about Facebook Ads.
46
47
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 37
PROVE IT AND SEE SUCCESS
What’s better than showing people you
have actually bought the product you’re
recommending?
I know I’m more likely to buy when I see the affiliate has stumped up his
own hard earned cash and thinks it’s worth an investment.
Show receipts and purchase proof in your content and emails for
increased sales.
MORE LINKS = MORE SALES
Don’t ever just have one links tucked away at the bottom of your email.
Always have multiple links for increased chances for people to click and
use both naked URLs and in-content links.
Most people won’t make it to the bottom of your email so make sure
they don’t have to with a way to click early on.
We always talk about the importance of having links and email opt in
forms “above the fold” (where someone can see it without scrolling
down) on websites.
Well the same applies to emails – have them throughout the whole
email.
Digital Marketer tests show that 5 links per email is the best amount for
increased click through rates.
WORK ON YOUR CONVERSION RATES
Conversion rates can almost always be improved. And this should be
something you’re working on before sending more traffic. More traffic
doesn’t necessarily mean more sales.
If a product is converting at 0% sending more traffic means it’s still
going to convert at 0%.
48
49

38 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
So work on conversion rates first.
If you were selling your own product you’d work on the headline and
sub-headlines first (this is the only thing EVERYONE will read) then
focus on other parts of the sales page.
As an affiliate you can’t change the sales page but you can improve
your own content to see if you can increase clicks.
■■ Try putting links in different areas of your page / email.
■■ Use images and buttons.
■■ Change your anchor text and call to actions.
■■ Try different layouts.
■■ Always keep testing and trying to increase your conversions.
THEN SEND MORE TRAFFIC
Once your conversion rates are sky high you’d want to look at ramping
up your traffic. Look at what sources of traffic are converting into sales
best and do more of it.
See if you can ramp that traffic source up or do more of it.
WRITE MORE CONTENT…DUH!
If you have a high converting affiliate product then you don’t only want
to have 1 single piece of content promoting it.
Create more with different angles.
Reviews.
Case studies.
Checklists.
FAQs.
Customer Feedback & Testimonials.
Stories related to the product or vendor.
Add more blog posts. Write more emails to add to your follow up
series.
51
52
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 39
IN-DEPTH REVIEWS SELL HARD
A great way to sell affiliate products, via both a blog or email, is to do
in-depth reviews.
Look at the product features and benefits, the pro’s and con’s, the price
and guarantee, customer feedback, what it can be used for and more.
LET’S GO FOR A WALK?
A lot of people struggle with just how to get started and use products.
Walk people through it step by step.
A post or email with lots of screenshots and images.
A video or screencast.
These sell affiliate products like crazy.
Pat Flynn of SmartPassiveIncome makes over $50K a month from
Bluehost affiliate program by showing people how to set up a
WordPRess website with them.
CHECK?
People love simple to digest checklists.
Creating promotional emails that work as a checklist allowing people to
mentally “tick off” what NOT to do then telling them to click the link in
your email to find out what to do next works like a charm.

LET ME TELL YOU A STORY…
Telling stories sells.
People have heard the hyped up claims and other nonsense before.
They haven’t heard your personal story about how you came to know
the vendor, what you did with the product or the marketing lesson to be
learned from something that’s happened in your life.
I’ve learned a lot about selling through story telling from Michael
Chenney.
AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.
MORE SALES
Most people don’t buy on the first exposure to something.
Especially online with digital products.
They want to check multiple sources, read reviews, get more opinions
and make sure it’s really something they want.
Never just send your visitor to an affiliate sales page once and then
that’s it.
Expose them to it multiple times.
Create lots of content about it.
Send multiple emails.
Retarget them across the web to get them back to your pages.
When mailing a promotion be sure to send them multiple different
emails taking different angles so they get lots of different reasons to
buy.
56

WHO WANTS RECURRING INCOME?
What’s the one thing better than a one time sale?
Recurring income.
Software. Tools. Membership sites.
Find products that pay month by month and you’ll essentially get a pay
rise every month without any extra work.
Try getting that in your day job
PROMOTE HIGH END PRODUCTS FOR
EACH COMMISSION
Are you scared to promote high end products to your audience?
It’s a common thing.
People either think their audience aren’t going to buy anything high end
(because they can’t afford to)
Or that they won’t see the value in it.
This isn’t true for most audiences.
There are always people who are willing and have the ability to buy high
end products.
In fact a lot of your audience are looking for higher end more complete
products and trainings that give them EVERYTHING instead of having to
buy dozens of $7 ebooks and piece everything together.
Hunt them down and promote them. You’ll be surprised at the results.

BUILD TARGETED LISTS AND HAVE
HIGH AFFILIATE SALES
It’s best to have multiple different lists for each of your different
products or categories on your blog so that each person ends up on a
list tailored to their interests.
If you’ve a list filled with lots of different people looking to get
information on a range of different topics then the best way is to set up
different lists for different interests then send them to a squeeze page
for each one.
Whoever opts in is interested in that topic. Anyone who doesn’t isn’t.
Them mail content and promotions related to that topic only.
PROMOTE PRODUCTS
YOU CAN VOUCH FOR
When you’ve used a product yourself it’s so much easier to convince
others to buy it.
You know WHY it’s great.
You know WHAT is does.
You know what problem it solves and why that’s beneficial.
PEOPLE CLICK THESE
Images (of purchase proof, data, call to action buttons) can be a great
way to get more people clicking through to a sales page.
Use them in emails.
Animated GIFS work amazingly well too but try not to use them in every
email as it becomes too much,

YOUR HEADLINE IS THE ONLY THING
EVERYONE WILL READ
The only thing EVERYONE will read is your
headline.
And if they don’t like it they won’t bother to open that email and you’ve
100% missed out on any chance of a sale.
Spend more time working on that email headline than anything else.
Write 20 different possible topics and perfect them.
Get a second opinion on what’s best.
Here’s the ultimate guide to writing headline formulas..

IF YOUR LINKS LOOK LIKE LINKS
PEOPLE WILL CLICK EM
Make sure your links actually look like a
clickable link.
Always have a full URL for someone to click on at least once in the
email.
A recent test I’ve been running is split testing naked URLs vs. anchor
text.
When using the naked URL I saw an average increase of 0.30% in clicks.
Not huge but it adds up over time and cannot be ignored.

PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGERS MAKE
PEOPLE TAKE ACTION
Psychological triggers are subtle words and sentences that people
react to without realizing they are reacting to.
They include power words like…
Discover, Instantly, Imagine
There’s 317 of them here…
http://boostblogtraffic.com/power-words/
But also using visualization to make people picture the outcome you
want them to achieve in their minds.
E.G.
“Picture yourself casually strolling up to that girl at the bar,
spitting the pickup line you’ve just learned, and asking her for her
number then her giving it to you without hesitation”
And using subtle sentences like “by now you are realizing the power of”
The “by now” sounds like “buy now” and when used just before a call
to action or buy button can increase the chances of a purchase being
made.

urgent it is to take action NOW.
■■ The Sceptic: Doesn’t believe anything you or anyone else says.
You need to assure them you’re the real deal, legit, and worth
listening to.
■■ The person who doesn’t know they need help: This person is
content and not actively looking for solution because they don’t
really know they have a problem. Make them realise that their
problem is and why it needs addressed now.
By addressing all 4 of these people in your email copy and eliminating
their issues you’ll see a massive increase in clicks and sales.
SELLING LESS SELLS MORE
Would you believe that selling less actually sells more?
I know what you are thinking:
That doesn’t make sense.
So let me explain…
If you try and sell to someone on the first time they encounter you it’s a
bad first experience.
You’re effectively trying to f*ck on the first date and whilst it will work
sometime it’s not going to work with most people.
If you’re ALWAYS trying to sell then you’re just coming across as a
chancer and an opportunist looking to make a buck.
Sell less often and don’t try to sell on the first encounter.
On your website just offer up valuable content on at least 90% minimum
66
67
46 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
of your posts.
Then funnel people onto your list and start building a relationship with
them.
Once that relationship is cemented THEN sell.
And never try and sell high end stuff to people you’ve just met for the
first time.
If the first time we meet I try and sell you something for $500 you’re
probably going to be laugh at best or be offended at worse and you’re
not going to give me any more time.
Start by selling small, low priced items, at first THEN work your way up.
It’s called the Affinity Pyramid and we’ve explained it more
here….

GIVE REAL VALUE AND GET MONEY IN
RETURN
The best way to sell affiliate products is to
always be giving out value.
Lots of valuable content for no charge.
Free tips and advice.
Great customer service.
Interaction with your audience.
Making yourself seems like a real person who can be contacted.
This build trust and shows you’re someone worth listening to.
68
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 47
REMOVE THE BANNER ADS –
THEY DON’T WORK
Banner ads have stupidly low click through rates and aren’t an effective
way to sell affiliate products.
Stick to putting links throughout your content.
STICK TO IN CONTENT LINKS
Use links throughout your content and keep them in content.
It’s fine to have a few big call to actions followed by a big link especially
at the end of the review or promotion but not constantly throughout the
content as it just looks spammy and sales-y.
BE ORIGINAL AND BE REWARDED
There’s nothing worse than when an affiliate just copies the sales page
or uses swipe files to promote it.
It shows no thought has gone into the promotion and probably means
you haven’t really used it.
Be original. Write your own thoughts about the product not what the
product vendor wants people to hear.
When your audience see you’re just using swipe files or copy by the
product vendor they’ll lose faith in you.
69

48 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
BE HONEST AND BE REWARDED
No one wants to hear or believes that every product is perfect.
They want the honest truth and will value your recommendations more
if you’re truthful about it.
Tell people about the products weak points and what you don’t like
about it.
No one will refuse to buy it because you simply mention a few
weaknesses.
STOP TRYING TO BE A SALESMAN
You aren’t a sales man.
You are a person who recommends products in order to solve
problems.
Knock off the car salesman pitches and stick to showing results and
providing solutions.
STOP CHASING COMMISSIONS!
If you promote anything that pays you a commission you might do well
for a short while but it’s short lived and you’ll live to regret it.
I understand it’s hard at first if you’re desperate for cash or just want to
make some money.
But in the long term you’ve shot yourself in the foot because when
someone buys something that’s junk they realize you just promoted it
to make money and not because it was useful.
Only promote products you believe in, have preferably used and got
results from yourself, and that will most importantly benefit your
audience.

TRACK WHAT WORKS AND DO MORE
OF IT
If you want to be a successful affiliate marketer you have to be testing
and tracking everything.
Tracking each affiliate link you put out onto the internet so you know
which link or email campaign converted into sales.
Which promotion resulted in the best conversion rate?
Which bonus offer works best?
What email type produces the most sales?
Test everything and record everything then do more of what works.
COMPARE IT
One great way to sell a product is to compare it to other similar
products especially if it’s better than the competition
I do this all the time where I’ll say there are similar products such as
XYZ however they are higher priced and offer less value or don’t offer as
many benefits as this one (if that’s true)
STICK WITH NICHES YOU KNOW WELL
When you’re in niches you know nothing or little about it’s VERY hard to
write a convincing email, piece of content, let alone a promotional email
or affiliate pitch
You just cannot identify with the problem your audience member faces
or WHY they want to find a solution.
You don’t know the correct terminology or words people within this
niche use.
When you stick with niches you know well you can easily write the
content and pitch to them in a way they identify thus increasing affiliate
sales
75
76

IDENTIFY A COMMON BOND
People are far more likely to buy from someone they relate to and have
a common bond with than someone who is nothing like them.
Find something you and the bulk of your audience have in common – a
shared interest, a similar struggle, a same experience and relate that
back to them.
If you’re in the online marketing niche you can tell them that when you
started out you were in the same situation they are – broke, scared,
desperate and with little hope but you overcame this by doing XYZ (the
solution)
If in the weight loss niche you tell them about how you too were
overweight, embarrassed about your body and self conscience in front
of others but you conquered this by doing ABC (the solution)
You get the idea I think?
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Something most struggling affiliates do is talk about product features.
…and I bet you do this too.
You’ll say…
“This SEO tool can add keywords to your content, tell you
how many times you’ve used your keywords in a piece of
content and makes it easy to see where you are ranked”
Those are product features. No one buys a product based on its
features. They buy it because they think it will benefit them. Talk about
the benefits.
So you say…
“This SEO tool can add keywords automatically to your
content SO THAT YOU RANK WITHOUT HAVING TO DO
KEYWORD RESEARCH”
“It will tell you how many times you’ve used keywords
in your content SO THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO WASTE
TIME COUNTING THEM MANUALLY OR RISK A GOOGLE
PENALTY BY OVER OPTIMIZING”
78
79
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 51
“Makes it easy to see where you are ranked WHICH
MEANS YOU CAN SPEND LESS TIME LOOKING AT YOUR
ANALYTICS TOOLS AND MORE TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY”
To keep it simple just remember to use “so that…BENEFIT” after you list
every feature.
This will increase your click through rate and sales to the affiliate
products.
GET PERSONAL FOR INCREASE
AFFILIATE SALES
Affiliate marketing is about having a conversation with your audience.
You’re not a salesman you’re someone who guides and helps your
audience.
Always use “I” and “we” and “you” in your promotional emails and
interactions with your audience.
It’s personal.
Using “we” makes it seem like you’re all in it together.
“You” making it seem like you’re talking directly to that subscriber and
not thousands of people on a list at once.
“I” makes you seem real.
PROBLEM, AGITATE, SOLUTION = SALE!
People are motivated by pain and pleasure.
A great way to entice clicks on your affiliate link is to use the ‘PAS’
formula
Problem + Agitation + Solution = CLICKS
80
81
52 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
State clearly your readers’ problem
i.e. “No one clicking the links in your email?
Then agitate it…
“Low clicks means low conversions, low sales and
ultimately less money in your bank account every month
which could lead to you struggling to pay the bills”
Then offer a solution…
“But don’t worry the solution is available on the link below
now….
>> LINK”
Simple!
More on PAS here:

USE THE 60 SECOND SALES HOOK TO
SELL MORE
This is a powerful copywriting technique from Kevin Rogers that anyone
can put to use with thanks to a fill in the blank template.
60 Seconds Formula:
■■ Introduce Yourself
■■ Tell your reader about the problem you struggled with and how
bad it was / pain it caused
■■ Tell them now you’ve discovered a solution (without revealing
what it is)
■■ The result now you’ve solve the problem (i.e. the benefits to your
life)
■■ Call to action on where they can get the solution and what the
benefits will be.

82
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 53
STRONG CALLS TO ACTION
& LOTS OF EM
People need to be told what to do and when to
do it.
Have strong multiple actions throughout your content and emails.
Instruct them to click that link and click it NOW before it’s too late and
the product goes offline.
TELL PEOPLE YOU GET A COMMISSION
People aren’t stupid. Most of them will get that fact you get something
out of promoting a product.
So be honest and up front about it.
I talk about on my about me page and welcome email that I do.
This makes you transparent and more trustworthy.
Lying about it will not help.
Not mentioning it will make you look suspicious.
AVOID HYPE
The online marketing niche is rife with this.
Nothing but hype.
You know the type…
“Making $10K whilst you sleep with a click of a button”
Hyped up nonsense. Avoid it. Just say things like they are.
You’ll get more respect for it and people will trust you more.
83
84
85
54 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
AVOID SWIPE FILES
Hundreds of affiliates are mailing these swipe files and if you are too
you’re no different from them.
Just another spammy, no use affiliate, that’s going to forever be broke.
You can take inspiration from them. You can mould your ideas around
them.
But don’t straight up copy n paste.
CHANGE THE RECORD
I used to be guilty of this too.
I’d come up with 1 angle and talk about it in every email with just a
different headline.
It’s boring. It’s repetitive. People don’t want to hear about it over and
over and will get pissed off, unsubscribe and complain.
Come up with multiple angles and promote that way for more effective
results.
CALM DOWN ON THE PROMOS
If you’re promote a different product every day or even multiple times a
week you just look like a chancer looking to make a buck.
There are not that many good products out there that you’ve used and
had results from.
It’s not believable.
Choose your products wisely and gain respect for only promoting stuff
you believe in.
86
87
88
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 55
BUT DON’T STOP PROMOTING TOO
SOON
If you’re promoting a product during a launch period don’t just send 1
or 2 emails about it,
Most sales will come in the last few days after multiple exposure to the
product
Promote every day of a launch competition (I do twice a day and then 3
on the last day usually)
ARE YOU AFRAID?
A lot of “marketers” are afraid to promote for fear of offending their
visitors.
Don’t be. If someone gets offended at you trying to sell them something
then they weren’t the type of person you wanted as an affiliate in the
first place.
Anyone who is happy to consume all the free content and value you put
out without giving anything back doesn’t deserve to be on your list.
Let them unsubscribe as they are doing you a favor.
yOU’RE NOT A SLIMY SALESMAN
Another major mindset issue for marketers is that recommending
anything or trying to sell makes them a dishonest and slimy salesman.
If you are recommending genuine products which solve your audience’s
problems and will benefit their lives then you shouldn’t be ashamed to
recommend stuff.
89
90
91
56 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
ASK AND ADDRESS = SALES
One way to sell more affiliate products is to ask your audience what
their main concerns are then find products which solve them. No point
in guessing when you can just ask.
WHAT WILL THEY USE IT FOR?
A great way to come up with new promotion angles and sell more is to
ask people who’ve bought the products what they’ll use it for.
Then create promos around those angles. It can be a great way to
discover new angles you would have never considered before.
DO THEY HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH IT?
You should always prepare your affiliate promos in advance.
I like to ask my audience a week or so before the promo if they’ve ever
used the product (if it’s been released before) or other products by the
vendor and what their thoughts are.
I’ll then use their comments as testimonials in my promotions and
proof the stuff works. Like this testimonial from Ifran…
92
94
93
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 57
And this one from Jeremy…
These both were used in results based emails to show that NicheHacks
tribe members were using these methods with success.
It makes your promotional campaigns real.
SHOW YOUR DATA AND SCREENSHOTS
It’s one thing to SAY you achieved ‘X’ results.
Another to show proof.
Take screenshots where possible to show your outcomes from using
the products.
I do it all the time and it works like crazy.
No one can refute the fact that you have achieved the result when you
show a screenshot (and those that would claim screenshots are faked
are too sceptical to buy anything anyway)
95
58 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker
GET PEOPLE ON THE YES TRAIN
You need to get people thinking positive and saying YES to as much
as possible throughout your affiliate campaigns so that when you ask
them to buy they are already on the YES train and primed to buy.
This works great in FAQ style emails where you should rephrase all
common questions so that the answer is YES.
USE A COUNTDOWN TIMER TO
INCREASE THE PRESSURE
If you don’t own the sales page you can’t put a countdown timer on it,
right?
Wrong!
The following plugin allows you to put a countdown timer on ANY page
even when you don’t own it without having access to the code..
http://www.pageexpirationrobot.com/v2/
MAKE YOUR LINKS AND BUTTONS
STAND OUT
One of the best ways to easily increase conversions is to make your
affiliate links, call to action buttons or even opt ins stand out so people
can’t miss them.
Make them bold and ugly.
Make them big.
Make them shake (Use the Animate It! Plugin for WordPress)
98
96
97
101 Digital Affiliate Hacks by Stuart Walker 59
USE BRIDGE PAGES TO INCREASE
CONVERSION
If you’d like to get a really high conversion rate (perhaps to impress
a product vendor) then instead of sending all your clicks direct to the
sales page do this…
Send all them to a bridge page where you instead have a short review, a
video pre-selling the product or a bonus which then leads to the sales
page.
That means anyone who does eventually click through is pretty much
ready to buy meaning a very high conversion rate.
SELL THE CLICK NOT THE PRODUCT
Your job as an affiliate is not to sell the product, that’s what the sales
page is for.
But to sell the click.
To make people click that link.
Focus on why people should click the link and less on why they should
buy.
SEND DIRECT TO THE PAYMENT PAGE
In some cases (depends on the affiliate network if allowed or not) you
can send your traffic direct to the payment processor cutting out the
sales page.
Why would you want to do that? Well it could be that the sales page
isn’t a high converter but the product is great.
Or that you know you can sell your audience much better than the sales
page will.
Or simply want to cut out that extra step where they could get
distracted.

Introduction
Welcome! My name is Erica Stone and I’m a full time
affiliate marketer. My main focus has been the Amazon
Associate affiliate program for over five years now. I build
websites that feature products other people are selling on
Amazon in exchange for a commission on any sales I
generate.
Even with five years of experience under my belt, I remember exactly how
frustrating it was trying to break into this business. Eighty percent of my
energy was spent reading and sorting through the multiple, confusing
explanations of how to get started that I found online, ten percent of my
energy was spent taking misguided action and ten percent of my energy was
spent convincing my husband that this wasn’t a waste of time.
If there’s a mistake to be made, I’ve made it – but those mistakes only
helped me uncover what WORKS.
I want to show you what I wish someone had
shared with me 5 years ago.
I want to show you just how simple it is to get started earning commissions
as an Amazon Associate.
My email address is Erica@extremereviewer.com and can also be found in
the closing section of this book. If you have any questions about what
you’re doing as you follow the instructions below don’t hesitate to contact
me. Just reference “One Hour Marketing” and let me know any questions
you may have.

How Much Money Can You Make?
Let’s cover a basic explanation of “online affiliate marketing” before we get going.
Online affiliate marketing is the process of helping retailers earn more product sales by creating content online that sends prospective shoppers to those retailers by way of special links in the content in exchange for a commission for each sale generated.
Many large retailers have affiliate programs including Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, and Target.
Amazon’s program is by far my favorite of all the retailer affiliate programs for physical products because consumers are so familiar with Amazon that they’re not afraid to click on your links or buy from Amazon’s site. In addition, Amazon pays you a commission not just on the item to which you linked but on (almost) everything else the consumer buys at the same time.
But…you want to know how much you can make as an Amazon Associate, right?
I don’t outsource the work on any of my sites. I don’t have a team of people helping me. I enjoy working alone and on my own terms and schedule. I want you to understand that making a living from the Amazon Associate program does not depend on you having a large operation.

Will you make that much money? That’s up to you. The strategy in this guide is just one of several that I use but it’s one of the easiest and it works. You have to be willing to do the tasks but I’m going to make it as easy for you as possible.
Not Yet an Amazon Associate?
Don’t worry – you can STILL do all the steps in this book even if you’re not yet an Amazon Associate. I have you covered in the instructions so just keep reading. You need a site in order to apply for your Amazon Associates account so follow all the steps and create your site.
NOTE: Residents of the following states are not currently eligible to participate in the Amazon Associates program – Arkansas, Colorado, Maine, Missouri, Rhode Island, or Vermont. If you live in one of those states you ARE eligible for the Walmart affiliate program (and other programs where the retailer has both online and brick and mortar stores). Whenever the instructions mention Amazon simply refer to Walmart instead.

What You Will Do in One Hour
Making money online is a very simple formula – one you’ve probably read before if you’ve spent any time at all trying to do so.
Find a problem – present the solution – get the content in front of the right audience (traffic).
But, Erica, people who want to shop on Amazon don’t have a problem, do they? YES, they do! They’re looking for a product and not finding it so they’re searching Google. You’re going to help them find the right product.
And, yes, the steps in this book can all be done in one hour even if you have no prior experience!
You don’t need any fancy tools, you don’t need to buy anything, you don’t need to hire anyone, and you don’t need any technical website experience.
When you see how simple this is you’re going to want to keep going!
Read through this book and promise yourself you’ll actually follow the instructions.
I’ve laid out every step in such detail that there’s no reason you won’t be able to do this. There’s not a single item left out. Just walk through every,
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015

very thorough step and you’re going to walk away with light bulbs going off left and right.
You’re going to walk through the steps to start what I call a “gift site” on a free blog platform.
For the sake of this book, a gift site showcases gifts that all fit a specific niche. You might have a site about “gifts for golfers” or “gifts for teachers”. (Don’t worry – I have a long list of niche ideas for you!)
By using a free blog platform you don’t have to spend anything for hosting or a domain name in order to see if you like this method.
Gift sites are a great strategy because people buy gifts all year long. Certainly there’s lots of gift shopping around the winter holidays but people buy gifts for many other occasions, too – birthdays, weddings, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, graduations, and other special events.
The problem you’re solving is that experienced by people struggling to find a gift idea for someone who is into a certain hobby, profession, or passion.
My husband is a golfer and although – after years of exposure – I understand the equipment and the game I still never know what to get him when I want to buy him something related to golf.
If I were to build a gift site for the golfing niche, my MAIN keyword would become “gifts for golfers”. I’d want the home page of my site to rank for that phrase. To do that, I’d build a site where all the posts had to do with gifts for golfers.
By building up content that is related to my main phrase the home page can eventually rank for the main keyword. In the meantime, all the individual posts will rank for lots of long-tail keywords related to the phrase and bring in their own traffic and sales.
In this book you’ll learn EXACTLY how to:
1. Choose a niche for your gift site
2. Set up a free Blogger blog that:
a. Looks good on desktop AND mobile devices (mobile friendly)
b. Is optimized to rank well in search engines
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015

© Erica Stone
c. Doesn’t reveal your identity even if you’ve connected your Google account to a Google Plus profile
d. Looks nice and clean
3. Find a product to write about
4. Write the content (the words) for that keyword
5. Insert products from Amazon in a way that will improve traffic potential (images will be optimized to rank in Google’s Image search engine, too)
6. Publish your first post
7. Get the post indexed in Google in under 2 minutes
Setting up the site is a one-time event.
After that, you’ll be able to create a new post using this method in less than 15 minutes!
Choose the Right Niche
The best niches for this strategy fall in one of three categories: HOBBY, PROFESSION (when people in that profession are notoriously proud of being in that profession), or PASSION.
Hobby examples would be:
 Sewing
 Crochet
 Baking
 Golf
 Soccer
 Baseball
 Fishing
 Photography
Profession examples would be:
 Teachers
 Lawyers
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015

 Mechanics
 Firemen
 Police Officers
Passion examples would be people who love anything to do with:
 Sharks
 Butterflies
 Horses
 Rainbows
 The 80s (the 50s, the 60s, the 70s etc.)
 Opera
 Football (fans not players)
 Soccer (fans not players)
The formula for your main keyword depends on your niche type:
 HOBBY MAIN KEYWORD FORMULA = Gifts for [hobby] OR Gifts for People who [hobby
o Examples:
 Gifts for People who Sew
 Gifts for People who Crochet
 Gifts for Bakers
 Gifts for Golfers
 PROFESSION MAIN KEYWORD FORMULA = Gifts for [profession]
o Examples:
 Gifts for Teachers
 Gifts for Lawyers
 Gifts for Mechanics
 Gifts for Fireman
 PASSION MAIN KEYWORD FORMULA = Gifts for People who Love [passion] OR Gifts for [passion] Lovers
o Examples:
 Gifts for Shark Lovers
 Gifts for People who Love Sharks
 Gifts for Butterfly Lovers
 Gifts for People who Love Butterflies
 Gifts for Horse Lovers

It doesn’t matter which version of the phrase you choose for your main keyword – there’s going to be search volume. You don’t have to do any research on the niche or on the search volume. Google will eventually know that your site is a fit for either version of your main keyword.
The BEST niche for YOU is one in which you have a personal interest either because you, yourself, enjoy the hobby or profession or because someone with whom you are close enjoys the hobby or profession. This makes it much easier for you to write the content for the posts (although the posts are short so this isn’t really difficult). However, the more you know about the niche the more likely you are to use words and phrases that are part of the “language” of the niche. Your visitors will relate more easily to your writing.
Here’s a longer list to get you started. Pick one of these niches or come up with your own:
 Gifts for People who Sew
 Gifts for People who Crochet
 Gifts for Bakers
 Gifts for Golfers
 Gifts for Football Players
 Gifts for Football Fans

Setting Up a Strong Blogger Blog
The least expensive way to get content online is to create a free blog using Google’s Blogger product (also sometimes referred to as Blogspot). This is a great way for beginners to publish content online because it requires no investment in hosting or a domain name.
There are some downsides to using Blogger – the templates (the designs) aren’t always coded to include good on-page ranking factors and while Google is okay with Amazon affiliate links in these blogs you’re at their mercy should they ever change their mind.
Google can also decide to delete your blog with no warning. Eventually you should really build your own site on your own domain however using Blogger will let you try out this strategy for free until you’re more comfortable building your own site.
You should read Blogger’s terms of service before you build a blog with their product. Make sure to adhere to those terms. You can read them here: Blogger Terms of Service.
Here’s how to create a brand new Blogger blog with enhanced on-page search engine optimization so it will rank better in Google. NOTE TO THOSE OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES: Blogspot automatically redirects to a country specific URL for your blog when it is viewed in some countries. When you build your blog and if you live in one of those countries, the domain you see will end in blogspot.[your country code]. However, the .com version is also created and displayed to users in non-country-specific-URL countries. You can read more about why that is here: https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/2402711?hl=en. Once you’ve finished the site set up steps below and IF you want to remove the country redirect, you can follow the instructions here: http://www.labnol.org/internet/prevent-blogger-country-redirection/21031/ but only AFTER you’ve completed my instructions below as I’ll be having you change the Blogger template anyway.

This may look like a lot of steps but that’s because I’ve included LOTS of screen shots. It’s really nothing more than pushing the right buttons and doesn’t take long at all:
1. Go to http://blogger.com
2. Register for an account with Google if you don’t already have one OR log in with your existing Google account
3. Click the New Blog button
4. Enter a generic title for your blog – DO NOT use your main keyword as the name of your blog. That’s just boring and looks spammy. You’re building something of value so give it a cool name. It should relate to your niche in some way but it really doesn’t matter much. Your individual posts are going to help your site’s home page rank for your main keyword no matter what you call your site. You could do something like Baseball Faves or Butterfly Dreams or Arty Smarty. Make it a name you’d be proud to tell your friends or family. Keep it short, too – otherwise it will be hard for your fans to remember.

5. In the Address field (under the Title field), enter your chosen title with no spaces and no capital letters followed by “.blogspot.com”. This will be the URL for your blog’s home page. Blogger will tell you if the URL has already been used in which case you’ll need to pick something new for the Title field and try the address field again.
6. Once you have an Address that is available, click on the AWESOME INC design in the Template section and then click the Create Blog button

Find a Product
You’re going to start by creating single posts on your blog that each feature one product on Amazon.
You don’t have to write more than 5 sentences. Amazon is fine with short posts as long as the writing is UNIQUE. Don’t copy material from Amazon or any other site.
Google is okay with short posts, too, as long as the content is USEFUL.
I’ll show you how to meet both requirements easily but first, we have to find a product to include on the site.
The product needs to be something your niche would love. If you’re doing a hobby niche, don’t pick expensive gear that goes with the hobby.
The equipment for a hobby is so integral to the hobby that the person someone is shopping for either already has what they need or knows what they want.
Later you can add detailed, quality reviews of expensive hobby equipment to help people who are researching reviews on the equipment but, for now, we want to focus on gifts that celebrate or recognize the love for the hobby, profession or passion.
Think t-shirts, key chains, license plate frames, wall art, sweatshirts, books, car accessories, etc.
For a golfer, a great gift for this post might be a case that holds collectible golf balls. For a teacher, a great gift for your post might be a t-shirt that says “World’s Greatest Teacher”. For someone who loves to sew you might look for a great book of new patterns or earrings in the shape of small sewing machines.
Before you start worrying that you won’t make much selling small items like these, remember that you’re going to make a commission not only on whatever someone buys after clicking your affiliate link but anything else they buy through Amazon at the same time.

I’ve had sales where the person bought a small, $50 item I was promoting and then went on to buy 50 hard cover medical books. The total value of the books was over $1000 and that was a huge commission! Plus, as I mentioned, you can expand your site later to include other kinds of posts targeting more expensive products. We’re just starting nice and easy.
To find a product for your first post:
1. Go to Amazon.com
2. Type in a word for your niche (examples: sewing, golf, horse, butterfly, teacher, etc.)
3. Go through the products that come up and see if you find something that would make a great gift for your niche. If you don’t see something you’re comfortable meets your needs then look at the list of related departments on the left hand side and click on a department you think might have something more gift-like. If you see Clothing, Accessories, or a Jewelry department listing, look in those to find something.
a. You can also try doing a search in Amazon for “love [niche]” (without quotes)
i. Example: love crochet
ii. Example: love golf
iii. Example: love golfing
iv. Example: love knitting
b. You can also do a search in Google Images for the phrase “for [niche] site:amazon.com” (without quotes) and find product images where the text mentions that it’s for your niche
i. Example: for people who crochet site:amazon.com
ii. Example: for golfers site:amazon.com
iii. Example: for football fans site:amazon.com
iv. Example: for butterfly lovers site:amazon.com
4. When you find something that would make a great gift, click on the product to open the product page in Amazon. Keep your browser tab on that product page ASSIGNMENT: Find a product on Amazon that would make a great gift for your niche.

Easy Content Template
You’ve chosen your niche, created your blog and found a product to promote.
Now, it’s time to create and publish the first post on your blog. Many beginning affiliate marketers worry over what to write and struggle with this part of the process but I’ve included an outline that makes this easy.
In addition, the code I had you use for your blog removed any reference to your name that might be associated with your Google profile. No one (except Google) is going to know who created your blog or wrote the post unless you tell them. No one is going to laugh at you or judge you and you can always revise your written content later. Just give it a try!
When you get to the guidelines on writing your content pretend you’re just writing an email to a friend or family member. This makes your writing more natural and – often – makes it easier to write because you feel less pressured to be perfect.
Your writing doesn’t have to be perfect. You’re only going to write a few sentences. You can do that, right? You do want to make sure you check your spelling and grammar but don’t stress out about what people are going to think about your writing. Consumers are just going to be glad they found a post that helps them find something they’re looking to buy.
Two notes to guide your writing:
1. Don’t copy content from anywhere. Write your own words. Your content must be unique in order to do really well in Google.
2. Don’t use the words in your keyword too many times. That not only sounds unnatural (if you say “t-shirt” over and over when you only have a few sentences of content it just sounds over-done and unnatural). Google also doesn’t like that because it looks like you’re trying too hard to rank for a specific keyword.

There are two sets of instructions below depending on whether or not you are already an Amazon Associate.
If you already have an Amazon Associate account, follow the instructions below.
If you don’t yet have an Amazon Associates account then click here to jump to your instructions: NOT YET AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE INSTRUCTIONS
HAVE AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE ACCOUNT
1. Log into your Amazon Associates account so you can add your new blog to your account settings:
a. Click on Account Settings and then click the “Edit your website list” link and add blogspot.com as one of your domains (Amazon won’t take the longer URL for your blog so all you can do when using Blogger is to enter “blogspot.com” instead of the full URL to your blog’s home page)
2. Click on Account Settings again and select the option to “Manage your tracking IDs” so you can add a new tracking ID that will be unique to this blog (that way you’ll know which site is generating sales in case you have more than one site)
a. Click the button to add a tracking ID
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
47
© Erica Stone
b. Give the tracking ID a short name that relates to your site so you’ll be able to tell which site is generating the clicks on your Amazon links and then click the Search button
c. Amazon will automatically create a new tracking ID using the words you entered – it may add additional characters to the end of the word if it that exact phrase is not available. Make a note of the final tracking ID that was generated by Amazon.
3. Go back to your Blogger dashboard and click the option to add a new post (depending on what Blogger screen you’re on you may see a different button or link for a new post than what’s in the image below – if you don’t see any option to start a new post then click on the link in the upper left corner for My Blogs and look for the new post button next to the name of the blog you just created)
4. Give the post a title – the formula for this post’s title is: ADJECTIVE + SHORT DESCRIPTION + Gift for [NICHE]
a. Work in an adjective or two at the start of the post title – DO NOT use the product name from Amazon as the exact title of your post. Amazon is already trying to rank their page for that title so why try to beat them? Instead, think
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
48

of other ways to describe the product. Consumers search with adjectives: “small Chihuahua figurine”, “pink t-shirt for nurses with funny quote”, “brass framed inspirational photo”, “extra-large coffee mug”. By working an adjective or two into the post title you’ll rank better for related, long-tail search words in Google.
b. After your adjectives, tack on a short description of the product – “Women’s T-Shirt”, “Coffee Mug”, “Motivational Poster”, “Keychain”
c. Put the words “Gift for [your niche]” at the end of the title
i. Example final post title might be: Aqua Cotton I Love T-Shirt Gift for People who Crochet (the words “aqua” and “cotton” were my adjectives, the words “I Love T-Shirt” describe the product, then I added “gift for people who crochet” to represent my niche)
5. Put your post title in the title field at the top of the post editor screen
6. Click the Options tab in the right sidebar
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015

7. In the Reader Comments section click the Don’t Allow button, in the Compose Mode section click the Interpret Typed HTML button, and then click the Done button
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015

8. By default, Blogger puts you in the Compose editing screen when you create a new post. We want to use the HTML editing screen instead so that we can format our post in a specific way. So, click on the HTML tab in the post editor.
9. This will change how the post editing screen looks by removing some of the formatting options. Your screen should look like this:
10. In another tab in your browser, go to this URL and copy all of the text in that file: http://www.extremereviewer.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Blogger-Post-Code.txt
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
51
© Erica Stone
11. Go back to Blogger and paste the code into the post content box
12. Inside the code are some spots marked with pairs of XXs. You need to replace all of those spots with the right information for your product like this:
a. The first spot to replace is: XXAFFILIATELINKXX. You need to get your affiliate link from Amazon and paste it into that space. To get your affiliate link from Amazon:
i. If you have Site Stripe enabled, click the Link to This Page link in Site Stripe. If you don’t have Site Stripe enabled then, in your Amazon Associates dashboard, go to Settings and click the option to manage Site Stripe. Turn on Site Stripe and go back to the product page for the product you want to include in your post. Click the “Link to this page” link in Site Stripe:
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
52

ii. Use the drop down box to select the tracking ID you created for this site
iii. Click the Image Only tab (some products don’t have an Image Only tab – that makes it harder to get the product image for this style of post – if you run into
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
53

this you might look for a different product to promote)
iv. Amazon provides your affiliate link and the link to the product image inside some HTML code but we don’t want to use their HTML. We want to use our own HTML so we can add some things – an image alt tag to help with ranking the image in Google Image searches, a larger product image, and a buy button. So, we’re only going to grab the URLs we need from the code and NOT the whole code. Copy JUST your affiliate link URL from the code. The affiliate link is the first URL that follows the “href” at the start of the code. Highlight that URL only and copy it:
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
54
© Erica Stone
v. Go back to your Blogger post, highlight the spot marked for your affiliate link and paste the link from Amazon in that spot (be careful to leave the quotation marks around the XXAFFILIATELINKXX line in place – just replace the XXAFFILIATELINKXX phrase):
b. The second spot to replace is: XXIMAGEALTTAGXX. An alt tag is a phrase you use to describe an image so that search engine bots know what is actually shown in the image. With a good image alt tag, search engines can include images in image searches. This means you can rank your post in web searches and also rank your post by way of the image in image searches. To replace this, copy your post title and paste it into that spot but remove any symbols or characters from the alt tag. Don’t include quotations around phrases inside your post title (it interrupts the code) – don’t include periods, exclamation points, commas, or apostrophes. Search engines will still be able to read the information:

© Erica Stone
c. The third spot to replace is: XXAMAZONIMAGEURLXX. We want to get the URL for the product image from Amazon and put it in this spot. To get the Amazon image URL go back to Amazon and look for the first ‘src=” in the affiliate code box. The URL that follows is the product image URL. It looks like this:
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
56
© Erica Stone
i. Back in Blogger, highlight the spot marked XXAMAZONIMAGEURLXX and replace it with the image URL from Amazon (make sure to leave the quotation marks before and after the XXAMAZONIMAGEURLXX in place):
ii. This next part gets a little tricky but inside that image URL from Amazon is a number that defines the size of the image. We want to make the image larger than what Amazon gave us in the code. You need to find that number and replace it with the number 500 so the image will be 500px wide. The number inside the URL almost always follows the letters SL:
iii. Leave the SL in place (sometimes this is SX or another pair of letters) and replace just the number after it with the number 500 like this (be very careful not to delete any of the other characters in the URL):
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
57
© Erica Stone
d. The next spot to replace is: XXSENTENCE#1XX. Highlight that spot and replace it with a sentence you write that introduces the product to the reader and include your post title in the sentence:
i. Example: I heart this aqua, cotton “I Love” t-shirt gift for people who crochet!
e. The next spot to replace is: XXSENTENCE#2AND#3XX. Highlight that spot and replace it with two sentences that further describe the product in your own words. The content MUST be unique. I’ve confirmed with Amazon that short posts are fine as long as the content is unique. Obviously you may have some of the same words (a mug is a mug is a mug) just describe the product DETAILS in your own words.
i. Example: It’s 100% cotton and comes in other colors, too. The message on the front uses a beautiful, black font and is detailed with a pink heart with a white trim that resembles a sewn stitch.
f. The next spot to replace is: XXSENTENCE#4AND#5XX. Highlight that spot and replace it with two sentences that tell people why this product is fun or appropriate for your niche.
i. Example: We who crochet love to talk about our craft and a shirt like this opens the door for more discussion. It’s fun, colorful, and the design is really unique.
g. Your content box should look something like this:

h. Click on the Preview button to see what your post will look like when it is live and make sure everything looks okay. It should look something like this:
i. When you’re done checking the post, click the Publish (or Update) button to the right – a pop up box may appear asking if you want to share your new post on Google+. I usually hit the Cancel button on that box as I don’t have Google+ followers who would be interested in my affiliate marketing posts.

7. Write one sentence that introduces the product to the reader and include your post title in the sentence:

i. Example: I heart this aqua, cotton “I Love” t-shirt gift for people who crochet!
8. Write two sentences that further describe the product in your own words. The content MUST be unique. I’ve confirmed with Amazon that short posts are fine as long as the content is unique. Obviously you may have some of the same words (a mug is a mug is a mug) just describe the product DETAILS in your own words.
i. Example: It’s 100% cotton and comes in other colors, too. The message on the front uses a beautiful, black font and is detailed with a pink heart with a white trim that resembles a sewn stitch.
9. Write two sentences that tell people why this product is fun or appropriate for your niche.
i. Example: We who crochet love to talk about our craft and a shirt like this opens the door for more discussion. It’s fun, colorful, and the design is really unique.
10. Your content box should look something like this:
11. Since you’re not yet an Amazon Associate, you can’t use their product images. You can, though, link to Amazon with a straight (non-affiliate) URL so people could find the product on Amazon. Go back to your browser tab that has the Amazon product page open and copy the link address for the product page

12. Back in Blogger, highlight a couple of words in your first sentence that describe the product
13. Click the Link button in the toolbar

14. Paste the URL from Amazon into the Web Address field, check the box to add ‘rel=nofollow’ attribute to the link and click the OK button
15. Click on the Preview button to see what your post will look like when it is live

16. It should look something like this:
17. When you’re done checking the post, click the Publish (or Update) button to the right – a pop up box may appear asking if you want to share your new post on Google+. I usually hit the Cancel button on that box as I don’t have Google+ followers who would be interested in my affiliate marketing posts.

18. Your post is now live and you can click the View link under the post title in your list of published posts to see how it looks:
ASSIGNMENT: Publish your first post.
You did it! Your first post is published!
Before You Apply for Your Amazon Associates Account
You can use this blog to apply for your Amazon Associates account but you should beef it up with more content first. You should have at least 5 product posts using the instructions above AND add at least 5 more posts that do not link to Amazon.
Here are 2 kinds of posts you can include to make up those additional 5 posts:
1. If you have a personal interest in the niche you chose, write a post about how you got interested in this niche. You can insert your own images into the posts, too, for visual interest. Just use the “insert image” icon in the post editor toolbar.

2. Find a video on YouTube that’s related to your niche and write a post about that video and why people in your niche would like it. You can click on the “insert video” icon in the post editor toolbar to embed a YouTube video in your post.
Once you have ten posts on your site using this strategy, apply for your Amazon Associates account here: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/join/landing/main.html.
Once you’re approved for an Amazon Associate’s account, go back and edit all of your previously published posts and refer to the instructions for those who have an Amazon Associates account to insert the images and affiliate links into your published posts.
ASSIGNMENT (if you don’t yet have an Amazon Associates account): Publish 4 more product posts and 5 additional posts and then apply for your Amazon Associate account. Once approved, go back to your previously published posts and follow the instructions for those who have an Amazon Associate account to insert images and affiliate links into your posts.

Traffic – Two Minutes to Getting Indexed in Google
Publishing the post is only the first step in getting your content in front of your target audience.
Until Google finds your post and indexes it in their database, no one can find your post.
Fortunately, Google offers webmasters an online tool to use for notifying Google of new content. Using this tool will almost always result in your post getting indexed in Google within a couple of minutes. Cool, right? This means your content can start working for you right away!
Before you can use this tool you need to add your blog to a Google Webmaster Tools (now called Google Search Console) account.
To add the site to your Google Webmaster Tools account:
1. Log into Google Webmaster Tools or create a Google Webmaster Tools account here: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/
2. Click the Add A Property button
3. Put the URL for your site’s home page in the URL field and click the Continue button
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
71
© Erica Stone
4. You should see a confirmation message that your site has been added and are now on the Google Webmaster Tools dashboard for your site
5. Click the Crawl link in the left sidebar
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
72

6. Click the Sitemaps option under the Crawl section
7. Click the Add/Test Sitemap button to the right of the dashboard
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
73
© Erica Stone
8. Put ‘sitemap.xml’ in the sitemap field and click the Submit button
You only have to do the above one time. Google will now provide information about your blog and knows how to find your sitemap to help them crawl your site and find your new posts.
However, if we wait for Google to crawl the site, it could take a few days to a week or more for them to include your post in their index. A post can only rank in search engines once it is indexed.
If you do a search in Google for your new post by entering the post URL in the search box and see that your URL does not come up in search results then the post is not indexed:
So, let’s use Google’s special tool for Webmasters to get the post indexed right away so it can start working for us!

At 4:56am, my new post is not indexed. Let’s see how long it takes to get the post indexed.
1. Click on Fetch as Google in the left sidebar of your Google Webmaster Tools dashboard
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015
75
© Erica Stone
2. Google pre-populates the beginning of your post URL so you only have to enter the last portion (after the .com/) of your post URL in the URL box and then click the Fetch button
3. You should see the URL show up in the data section along with a green checkmark showing that it was submitted. Click the Submit to Index button to the right of the Status column
4. Check the box to ‘Crawl only this URL’ and then click the Go button
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015

© Erica Stone
5. Go back to Google and search again for your post by the URL and you should see the URL now shows up in the search results (if it doesn’t show up right away, wait a couple of minutes and check again)
Look at that! At 4:56am my new post was not in the Google index but by using Google Fetch it was in the index by 4:58am – 2 minutes to get a new post in the index!
One Hour Amazon Affiliate Marketing 2015

Just because the post has been indexed doesn’t mean it ranks on the first page of Google yet. It simply means that Google knows the post exists and can start working on where it should rank.
However, a good test to find out what Google thinks about your post is to search for the post by your post title. By 5:09am I’m in the #1 position in Google for my new post when I search for it using the post title:
That’s a great sign!
I’m not trying to fool you – I know there aren’t a lot of people searching for “aqua cotton I love t-shirt for people who crochet”. However, this is just a start. As the post ages, it can rank for shorter phrases that will get more search activity such as “aqua crochet t-shirt” or even “crochet t-shirt”.
On one of my gift sites a post a very long title ranks #2 in Google for a 3 word search phrase that gets more traffic – as well as ranking for 15 other phrases. That’s why these short posts can work. They’re targeted, they bring in traffic for multiple variations of your post title words, and they very nicely display a great product match with an obvious call to action button Amazon.
It just takes time. Your rankings will improve. You’ll rank first for very long-tail phrases and start to move up in Google for shorter, related keywords which means more traffic and more sales for each post.

You should use the Google Fetch process every time you publish a new post. Eventually, Google will crawl your site automatically within minutes of you publishing a new post and then you can stop using Google Fetch.
ASSIGNMENT: Add your site to Google Webmaster Tools, submit your site’s sitemap and use Google Fetch to get your first post indexed in Google.
See What You Did?
It’s hard to tell with all the detail outlined in the instructions just exactly how this works out to a one hour strategy but here’s the outline of what you’ve accomplished above:
1. Chose a niche – 10 minutes
2. Created a search-engine-optimized, free Blogger blog – 15 minutes
3. Found a product for your niche on Amazon – 5 minutes
4. Wrote 5 sentences about the product – 10 minutes
5. Published a new post using your written content and linking to a product on Amazon – 5 minutes
6. Got the post indexed in Google – 5 minutes
Total: 50 minutes (and that included creating the blog and submitting your blog’s sitemap to Google which you only have to do once!)

Scaling it Up
To continue growing your site you simply repeat the process for adding a new post to the Blogger blog you already created. You only need to build a new blog if you want to build one for a different niche.
This strategy requires that you create a LOT of posts. Your income will be in direct proportion to the number of posts you create.
Change Up the Post Title Formula
Don’t use the same post title formula every time. You don’t want to put the word “gift” or the phrase “gift for [your niche]” in every post title.
Here are two additional post title formulas you should alternate into your strategy:
 ADJECTIVE + SHORT DESCRIPTION
o This leaves out the word “gift” and the phrase “for [niche]”
o Example: Aqua Cotton “I Love Crochet” T-Shirt
 ADJECTIVE + SHORT DESCRIPTION + “for [SYNONYM FOR YOUR NICHE]”
o This uses a synonym for your niche so you target other terms people use when searching for gifts in your niche
o Example: Aqua Cotton “I Love” T-Shirt for Crocheters
See how those examples changed from the original post example title “Aqua Cotton “I Love” T-Shirt for People who Crochet”?
Target More Expensive Products
Different kinds of keywords and more expensive products require a different approach for your post content. I use the Ninja Reviews strategy to create detailed reviews when promoting more expensive products for higher commissions in my niche. That method is used to target “reviews” keywords. Doing review posts is one of the most consistent, highly converting post types in my arsenal. If done correctly, a single review post can earn more than $10,000.

Improve the Visitor Experience and Traffic
Once you have lots of posts you might look at using post Labels (a Blogspot feature) to organize your posts into categories, customize a navigation menu to make it easier for visitors to find related posts by category, add a custom header image), and drive more traffic from social sites (Pinterest Pinplosion can work for this kind of site, too, for example).
Keep adding new posts and you’ll soon become a source of excellent gift ideas for your niche and will rank for multiple phrases per post!

First off let me say thank you, if this is your first time purchasing a product
from me then Welcome.
If your are an existing customer then Welcome back.
This report is going to be quick and to the point. Do this, click this, use
this, promote this, etc..
If you have no clue what CPA Marketing is then I would suggest you go
learn about it and come back here.
Im not going to teach you what CPA Marketing is, I’m going to give you a
strategy to use right now. I will lay out the most basic of formulas that is
working right now for myself and my students.
This system works, But it’s up to YOU to set it up and take action on it.
Here is the deal with success online. It does not matter what you are
promoting, CPA offers, Affiliate Offer, Your own Products.
Targeted Traffic + Conversions = Sales
That’s the simple formula and I want you to keep that in your mind when
you go through this report

FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 2—————————————————–
Retargeting
One of the real goldmines of getting targeted traffic is to retarget your
traffic. Tongue twister I know.
Facebook and even Google will let you place a piece of code onto your
website and they will build an audience for you. Even Amazon is in on
the action.
Let me give you an example. Have you ever gone to Amazon, searched
for an item, opened up the item to get more information, but then decided
maybe later. Then you go surfing around the Internet and you see
banners with that same exact item you searched on Amazon.
That is retargeting. And you get to do it for any offer you want.
What does this really mean for us?
We have to build an audience. An audience that will never unsubscribe
and can be marketed to for any product you want
The formula I will show you goes like this. To build an audience we are
going to buy very cheap traffic. 1 cents traffic, send it to a landing page
and build the audience with facebook. Then promote the same offer to
your new facebook group.
The reason we do this is because first you have to build the audience and if
you don’t already have a FREE source of traffic then we have to get it for
next to nothing. And after you build up the targeted audience, facebook
will let you promote to that traffic for super cheap compared to just tossing
up ads on the facebook ads manager.

FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 3—————————————————–
Lets look at a diagram that shows the what it looks like
Here is how we setup this and these are the tools and websites you need.
An account at Buzzcity.com
A Facebook account
An Account at Peerfly
A Landing Page
I will walk you through each of these and then put it all together.
Buzzcity, if you have purchased this traffic before you know it’s very cheap,
but it can be hit or miss at times. But the traffic from this website is only to
build your audience at Facebook.
The audience you build at facebook is the real gem because its highly
targeted and you can pay next to nothing to promote to your audience.

FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 4—————————————————–
Facebook will reward you for building an audience because they figure you
know what you’re doing as a marketer and will give you cheap traffic on
your efforts. Because its your audience and you built it.
So again the formula is Targeted Traffic plus Conversion gives you the
money you desire.
Im going to start off with setting up the offer to promote. This is going to
be an auto insurance offer that pays $9 per lead
Step #1
Login or setup an account with Peerfly, click here
I the top right of the search, put in this number 9026
Auto Quotes Direct is the offer I want you to promote.

FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 5—————————————————–
This pays out very good for a lead!!
This offer is only for United States traffic, so we will only focus on US traffic.
And it’s allowed in both Search PPC (google) and Social PPC (facebook)
Next click on the banners

320×25 and 728×90

Step #2
Step 2 is setting up a landing page to capture the traffic and build the
audience.
Im not going to go over how to setup this landing page but will give you an
example of mine.

—————————————————–Page 8—————————————————–
The landing page you create is there to build the audience from the traffic
we get at buzzcity. You can do direct from FB and I will show you that in a
bit.
On this landing page you will place the audience pixel you get from
facebook. In step 3 I will explain this and you can then go back and place
this code in your html
Step #3
Step 3 is setting up your audience inside of facebook. So head over to
your facebook account and click on the top right menu, then click on
manage ads. If this is your first time with facebook ads then click on
create an ad. Just create an ad and put your landing page url in there, but
don’t make the ad active. This will open up the advertising admin area.
Once inside the admin area I want you to click on audiences to the left.

Next click on the upper right create audience and customer audience.
Then click website traffic
Next click on Anyone who visits your website

—————————————————–Page 10—————————————————–
You can put in your landing page url there or leave it blank.
Here is how I setup my audience
Now click the checkbox next to the audience and view pixel
Inside of the box you want to copy the pixel code into your computer
notepad. We will take this code and place it inside our landing page.
11­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 11—————————————————–
Now go back to your landing page and paste in this code to your html page.
I use a software called Kompozer for Mac to edit html page. If you are
using wordpress then you can paste this code into the footer of your
landing page.
12­

Summary so far.
Step 1­ get the offer from Peerfly
Step 2 ­ setup your landing page
Step 3 ­ get pixel code from facebook and place that into your landing
page.
Setp #4
Setup buzzcity to start generating cheap audience traffic.
Login into your buzzcity account.
Click on My Campaign and then Create Campaign
13­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 13—————————————————–
Set you title, CPC, and Daily Budget
At $10 budget you will get 1,000 clicks $100 will get you 10,000 clicks.
10,000 click will give you an audience in facebook close to that number.
Next make sure you set the traffic to desktop and not mobile.
14­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 14—————————————————–
Go to the banners and upload the 300×250 and 728×90, you will see
buzzcity will auto create banners for the other spots. These are the only 2
banners you need to upload.
The next part is the url and you will put in your landing page url here.
15­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 15—————————————————–
Next you will open up the selected countries and find United States then
enter .01
And then I make sure everything else is checked except Adult
16­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 16—————————————————–
Then just hit submit and wait for approval. Once it’s approved then traffic
will start flowing through to your landing page.
What we are doing is taking the traffic at buzzcity for very cheap and
building an audience at facebook. As the traffic is coming in from
buzzcity the pixel from facebook is firing in the background building up your
audience.
Real people are going to click on your banners but don’t expect a lot from
the traffic from buzzcity. You may get some leads, but all the leads are
going to come from the audience you build.
Step #5
Setting up your ads on facebook using the new and growing audience.
You may be asking yourself why even bother with all this and just go
straight to facebook. Because it’s so much harder to figure out a good
17­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 17—————————————————–
audience from straight facebook ads. Trying to target an audience like this
will cost way too much.
Its much easier to get cheap traffic from a source like buzzcity then pay the
high prices at facebook. The audience you build at facebook is going to
be a lot cheaper and very targeted since people clicked on your auto
insurance banners.
Now back to facebook and lets create an ad with the audience
You want to send people to a website, this will be the AutoQuotes offer
Your link will be your landing page you created before
18­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 18—————————————————–
I need to point something out that is important for facebook. Make sure
you have a policy and terms links at the bottom of your landing page
Use this website to create a policy and terms
** If you dont want to go through the hassle of setting up the page and
hosting it yourself then click here . I will host it for you and give you a
special link. But this may be closed by now.
The next part is choosing the audience
19­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 19—————————————————–
Make sure United States is selected
And I leave everything else default. Since this audience has already said
they are interested in auto insurance the audience it your target.
Next I will set the budget and set the price per click. I usually start off with
$1.00, facebook will usually give you the best price. Normally your gonna
pay $.20 ­ $.30 per click.
20­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 20—————————————————–
Next is setting up the ad. Take a look at how its setup
21­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 21—————————————————–
A few key things are remove Mobile News Feed, remove Desktop Right
Column, Only have Desktop News Feed.
The photo you can play around with. Facebook has a good selection of
stock photos you can choose. I found that a smiling female always out
pulls any other ad.
22­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 22—————————————————–
And you will notice that the photo and text are taken directly from the direct
Auto Quotes Direct landing page.
Once that is complete hit submit.
Now you’re all set, you have cheap traffic from buzzcity building your
audience at facebook and you are targeting your auto insurance audience
in your ads.
Another key thing to remember here. This audience is always going to be
there. You can leave your ads running all the time. The audience will
always be there they will never unsubscribe.
That is why this strategy is so powerful.
Summary of everything we learned.
Step 1 ­ Going to peerfly and downloading your offer and affiliate link
Step 2 ­ Creating your landing page with your affiliate link
Step 3 ­ Creating an audience with facebook and downloading your pixel to
your landing page
Step 4 ­ Setting up your campaign inside buzzcity
Step 5 ­ Create your facebook ad with the new audience created from the
cheap traffic from buzzcity.
A few others things not covered here.
23­
FREE CPA Marketing Training (limited seating)
—————————————————–Page 23—————————————————–
Tracking
I use clickmagick to track everything. You can add the tracking pixel to
your landing page and your peerfly account. This will show you what is
converting
Google Adwords
Google also has a retargeting program. I have yet to use it because I think
google adwords is overpriced, but it’s still an option to look into.
My final thoughts
This may seem new and completed to you. And I get it, but once you take
action setting this up you will finally see the bigger picture. My goal is for
you to master this and branch out into other offers. You can do this same
system and build audiences for different niches.
You can build an audience in the Health and Weight Loss, Make Money
Online, Forex, Binary Options, and Dating.
The amount of audiences you can build are endless. And with these new
audiences you can promote anything you want inside of that niche.
I hope you have enjoy this report. If you need help use the resources

Outsourcing All Stars

How to Avoid Stupid Mistakes when Hiring
Outsourcers
1. Never pay for the entire large job before doing a small test job. If
you are using Fiverr and it costs 5 gigs, split it into 5 separate smaller
jobs. No outsourcer has ever had a problem with this.
If the job is small, just ask for a sample after they complete a portion
of the work. This applies to task oriented work such as data entry.
Example: if you need 5 articles, order 1 to make sure it is of good
quality. On Fiverr, I usually only pay for 1 gig at a time. After I
develop good rapport and I know their work rocks, I no longer worry
about this.
MVP TIP
Regardless of the positive reviews and recommendations, you
can still have a bad experience. So, please always do your due
diligence by reading the last 5-10 reviews and looking at
samples of their work.
2. Never trust that the job will be done on time without getting
progress updates daily. If it is a big job, have them send the
completed work everyday. I made this mistake once and got screwed.
After two weeks, I asked for the work and she told me that she never
started. This outsourcer was highly recommended and had great
reviews. This does not always matter.
3. Never assume that everyone understands what you mean. Break it
down like you are explaining it to someone that has never done the
job before and is 5 years old. I don’t mean to be condescending. Just
be as clear as possible and explain each step.
Always give an example and explain it and then summarize it again at
the end. Have them send you part of the work after one section is
done to be sure you are on the same page.
4. Be patient with your outsourcers. Don’t just assume they are poor
because the job was not up to your standards. Give them a chance to
redo it.
One of my favorite outsourcers had some trouble at first, but is now
my go to person. It was my fault that I didn’t explain it well enough.
Also, remember that there is often a language barrier.
5. Don’t assume that you have to get your outsourcers from one
country. Some people seem to think that the best outsourcers at the
best prices are always from the Philippines.
There are definitely some great outsourcers there, but there are many
other countries that have great outsourcers as well. Just keep an
open mind.
MVP TIP
6. Always read at least 5-10 of the most recent reviews to
make sure this outsourcer is still producing quality work. Even
if you buddy recommends them, still make sure you check the
most recent reviews. One negative review is not a big deal.
Any outsourcer’s work can slip at any time, so never rely
solely on their past performance or referrals.
Have you ever had a worker go bad? I certainly have. My old plumber
was great. But, he screwed up the last 2 jobs he did. So, I found a
new plumber that is awesome. This is why you should always read the
last 5-10 reviews just to be sure.
7. Train them-This is time consuming and frustrating. But, if you make
the effort, you will often have a go to person that loves to work for
you and will put your work first.
8. Don’t be cheap or try to squeeze every cent and minute out of your
outsourcers. Some people might disagree with me, However, I used to
worry about how long things would take my VAs for a particular task.
Now, I really don’t care.
Example: I had a college girl proofread some things for me. I paid her
one gig which was suppose to be for 3 hours. She was fine doing the
required work for one gig. But, I am not sure how long it took. Even if
she did it in half the time, I don’t care. It was still well worth the $5.
She did a great job with a quick turn time and I am happy. Therefore,
I never even asked about the time. Basically, I have been paying a
little more and throwing my steady workers some easy jobs from time
to time.
Example: if I need a graphic edited, I used to wait until I needed a
handful of easy edits. Now, I often just pay the $5 to give them the
easy job.
9. Give good workers a tip-they will love you and really appreciate it.
It is good to reward workers that knock it out of the park once and
while. They will pay you back for sure.
10. Be Nice! This is a common sense and a funny one. It reminds me
of what Seinfeld said to George “You be Nice”. This is very easy to
overlook. We all do it.
Just make sure you are polite and appreciative. Always thank your
workers, leave a good review if you liked their work, and mention that
they did a good job. This will build good rapport, and they will
remember you for future jobs. If they really hit it out of the park,
leave a tip.
It is essential to build a good team of outsourcers that you can
depend on to complete your jobs. This is easy to do over a little time.
Always have a back up in case they get sick or swamped with jobs.
In this guide, I mostly mentioned Fiverr since they are favorite place

great outsourcers (elance, Odesk, Warrior Forum).
Thank you so much for purchasing my WSO!
