What is affiliate marketing

I was asked by one of my business mentoring students this morning about affiliate marketing. He had heard it can be a great online business model but wasn’t really sure what it was.

I’ve been doing this so long that I sometimes forget not everyone knows what all these business models are or how to do them.

So, instead of just giving him the answer, I decided to share it with you too in case you have the same question…

What is Affiliate Marketing?

The most basic definition is that it’s the process of promoting the products and/or services of other people or companies for which you earn commissions on sales.

Essentially you find a product or service you like in a niche you have an interest in, and promote it to others via any number of different marketing channels, which can include; SEO, PPC, blogging, social media, display ads, email lists, networking, and many others.

You then earn a certain percentage of the profit for each sale you get.

This is a win/win/win situation for all:

  • The product owner is happy because they got a new sale that they probably would not have gotten otherwise.
  • You are happy because you made money.
  • The customer is happy because they got something they were wanting or needing.

There are affiliate programs for just about any niche or industry you can possibly think of, so there’s almost always something to promote. That makes starting an affiliate business quite simple.

One of the best things about affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to invest all the time and effort into creating a product/service to sell or deal with updates, customer service, refunds, and all that other stuff nobody likes to do.

You can literally start selling something as an affiliate today if you really want to!

Here are 2 things I have personally found to be very important for success:

1) I only recommend products & services that I know are high quality.

These are things that either I have actually used and benefited from myself, or at the very least, I am quite familiar with the creators of it and know them to have a solid reputation of exceptional quality.

If I’m not 100% confident in it or I don’t absolutely feel it will positively benefit people than I will not affiliate with the company, individual, product, or service.

2) I rarely, if ever, straight up tell someone to purchase something. I recommend things based on my own experiences, or those of people I know and trust, and in the context of what I am doing or discussing. The decision is ultimately up to each individual on whether they feel the product is for them or not.

You don’t have to follow the same rules as I do in order to become a successful affiliate marketer. However, I feel it is very important to your success as well as to the vendors and customers for you to be honest, ethical, and upfront in your affiliate marketing efforts.

In my opinion I love affiliate marketing, made a bunch of money as an affiliate marketer.

The awesome part is that there are automated sales systems you can leverage that does 90% of the sales process for you.

The 10% is simply putting the sales message in front of the right people at the right time. Once you learn a simple skill of advertising you can literally scale to a six figure income faster than you ever thought possible.

Let me share with you a secret about affiliate marketing no one else wants you to know.

If you want to become an affiliate marketer and make a lot of money doing it, just think of yourself as a “Problem Solver”.

Most people are searching for products to improve their life, depending on what product you are promoting make a list of all the benefits, put on your thinking cap and make a list of people who would be most likely to buy the product you are promoting and get your sales message in front of the people who most likely want to buy what you are selling.

Here is a little example that will help you understand.

Let’s say you are selling flip-flops.

Who do you think would be the most likely people to purchase flip-flops?

I would target people who live near a pool, lake, or ocean.

You can even get more specific and target people who are going to be going on vacation to a beach.

The more specific you are the easier it is to sell.

It would be a waste of time trying to sell flip-flops to an Eskimo in Alaska wouldn’t it?

Another real important factor about affiliate marketing is the amount of money you make. Over the past few years I been promoting high ticket sales and make anywhere from $500-$1.500 per sale.

If you have been thinking about becoming an affiliate marketer, I’d say just do it. It was the best decision I have ever made.

There are millions of products and services to promote.

But if you want to get get access to an automated sales system that does 90% of the sales process for you and earn high ticket commissions.

I highly recommend taking a few minutes and check out our system.

Without further ado let me introduce you to this system and explain how it works.

The name of the system is ZNZ Promotions.

Watch the video below and see what Sherri has to say about ZNZ Promotions.

You can also see the ZNZ Proof gallery and the thousands of people who are also making money with ZNZ. (Click The Image Below To See More ZNZ Proof)

ZNZ is a real company and has already paid out over $9,916,142.72 so far to people like me and soon to be you.

Let me just explain what ZNZ is so you can better understand how it works.

ZNZ is an online incentive based referral network that works with major fortune 500 companies you already know and love, like the ones listed below.

The advertising landscape has dramatically changed over the past few years and the old ways of advertising such as Radio, TV and News Papers are not effective anymore for big businesses.

If these business want to continue to grow and stay in business they need to adapt to the changes that are happening all around us.

This is when ZNZ stepped in and introduced the incentive referral based advertising platform that launched back on July 14, 2007.

It costs BIG businesses millions of dollars to advertise on TV, Radio shows, Newspapers and Billboards.

Now a days people pay extra to record their favorite TV shows and fast forward right through the commercials or buy a satellite radio device so they don’t have to listen to the commercials business spend millions on to reach new customers.

What ZNZ does is pay people like me and soon to be YOU money as an incentive to have people simply try the products or services of their choice listed on their website on a trial basis.

There are currently about 100 different offers listed on the website available to try.

This is ingenious if you think about it…

You refer people to the ZNZ website through an automated system that is programmed to make you about $95 for each person who follows the 3 steps and try’s out the products or services listed on the website at a very low to no cost trial peroid.

You can work full-time, part-time or in your spare-time.

There are no quotas

Make as much or little as you need or want.

Everything is here awaiting you, right here, right now, so let’s get started.

You can follow the 3 steps inside the system by clicking the button below.

Or you can watch my videos below for each step as I explain exactly how to do it.

If you have any questions or need help, send me a message here.

Step 1

The first step is to complete step one.

Click the blue button below to start the first step.

Step 2

The second step is to complete step 2 which is ZNZ Big Cash.

*WARNING* If you DO NOT meet the 1.00 requirement in ZNZ One Or ZNZ Big Cash you will not make any money!

Also if you only complete ZNZ One and NOT ZNZ Big Cash you will be leaving A LOT of money behind. So I strongly recommend completing and meeting the 1.00 credit requirement in both ZNZ One and ZNZ Big Cash before you move on to step 3.

Step 3

After you have completed all the steps, let me know in the comments below.

If you have any questions or need help send me a private message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I want to share with you a short but very powerful video that will bring out the greatness inside to life for the first time in a long time.

Take 10 minutes, sit in a quiet place with no distractions and watch the video below, titled “Why Not” by a legendary motivational speaker. Jim Rohn.

Now I want you to close your eyes and picture you life 10 years from today, what are your dreams and goals for the future?

Now the important question is, will you be able to achieve your dreams and goals if you continue to do what you have always done?

When I really thought about that question… It really opened my eyes and realized that my future depends on what I am doing today to create and develop my future.

A few years ago, I was at rock bottom hoping, praying and wishing things would get better.

Was working at a lawn care job making $10 per hours trying to make ends meet and I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I was sick and tired of being over worked and under paid.

As they say… “If you continue to do what you have always did, you’re going to continue to get what you always got.”

When I realized I was the one in control of my life and future, I had to step up and take control of my life to build a future I want to live and not a life I have to live because of my situation.

The past is history, the future is a mystery and right now is a gift, that’s why it’s call the present.

So you have to options…

You can continue to do what you have been doing and take the good with the bad or you step up take control of your life and design a life you want to live.

Stop living by default and and start designing a life you will be proud of.

When I did this exercise it created massive action in my life!

The path I was on was leading me farther and farther away from what I truly wanted.

PAIN is a greater motivator than gaining PLEASURE!

We all want that perfect life, the new house, the car, the relationships BUT we let the FEAR of PAIN drive us away from the very things that will create the life we deserve.

The fear of rejection, fear of the unknown, having to take a hard look at ourselves, honestly looking at our weaknesses, picking off the scabs of wounds that we think are gone BUT the reality is these wounds control every part of our life every day, fear of failure, fear of success and all the other crazy ideas, thoughts and events we allow to keep us from living the life we all deserve.

WE have all heard the saying the “TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE”

You are who you are and where you are in life because of all the information that went into your mind since you were a kid.

when you put better information into your mind better results come into your life.

Jim Rohn has another video that has completely changed my life, in way I can describe.

You just need to watch it for yourself.

The title of the video is… Getting rich is easy.

Now I am not going to leave you hanging.

I want to share with the opportunity that has completely changed my life, mentally, physically and financially.

We will be hosting a live workshop online for you and we will be revealing how you too can improve you life in more ways than just one.

This is a private workshop and is only available by invite only.

If you’re ready to make a change and improve your current situation, enter your name and email address in the box below and I will be happy to send you an exclusive invitation to attend the live workshop. 100% risk free guaranteed.

And Remember…

Make the rest of your life, the BEST of your life!
