A subscriber sent in this question today:
“I sell physical
products on Amazon, these are my own products, not affiliate products. Will
your traffic kick start method work for that?
“Would I be able to
direct link to my Amazon page?”
What a great question!
Hey, EVEN IF you don’t have books on Amazon, you might be looking for an easy way to just DRIVE traffic without
having a website.
Back in the old days, they used to call this “Direct Linking”.
It’s fallen out of practice in recent years, because most of
the Super Affiliates who were making crazy easy commissions just driving Google
Adwords traffic directly into hoplinks from Clickbank….they errrmmm…got Google Slapped.
Direct linking to sites that aren’t your own isn’t against
the Google rules.
But generally, I don’t encourage it.
You don’t own the site that you’re advertising.
And that’s a problem because EVERY good marketer wants to know
(especially when paying for advertising) how much it’s costing them to create a
If it costs more to find a customer than you’re making from the
sale, you’re copping a loss.
You don’t want that.
On a site you don’t own, like Amazon or Clickbank or (insert
Affiliate Marketing System Name Here)…
You can’t add the tracking code. So you’re flying BLIND. No idea how much each customer costs. And no way to bring it down.
Sure you can get traffic. And if you send enough of it you’ll make a sale.
And the Traffic KickStart method WILL help you do that very
easily and cheaply.
5 minutes of work and you’ll send Google out looking for as
much traffic as it can get, for as cheap as possible.
And yes, it will AUTOMATICALLY keep getting you more and
more traffic for cheaper and cheaper.
I reckon you’d be only using 10% of the Traffic KickStart
method’s full potential!
With the “Carrot and Stick” mod, you super-charge it.
Google goes out and tries to get you more and more CUSTOMERS and SALES…(not just traffic)
…For cheaper and cheaper.
But to use the mod, you need to be able to add the tracking code to the site you’re
If it were me, I’d kick Amazon to the curb. They’re taking
70% off the top of your sale JUST to be listed on their site and access their traffic
which you’re willing to pay to get more of anyway!
Who needs their $3 royalty?
Throw up a BASIC WordPress site. No sales letter.
A short description, a picture, a price. And a FRIGGING
PAYPAL BUTTON to order.
Just so I can use the Carrot and Stick method and force Google
to find me CUSTOMERS instead of clickers.
And if you’re a smart affiliate marketer, you’d forget about
Direct Linking and do the same.

A WORD OF CAUTION FOR AFFILIATES:
Make sure you add a few independent reviews following the
In the Traffic KickStart members area, I shared a link from
Google’s Guidelines SPECIFICALLY for affiliates.
There’s even a video BY Google themselves showing you how to
CORRECTLY promote affiliate offers with Adwords and remain compliant!
Not only that…
But I’ve even included a BONUS WordPress plugin that I custom-built
myself so you can add Sale or Lead tracking code easily to your site.
Need that link again?
So I’ll see you inside, yeah.
