Affiliate Conspiracy pt2: How Affiliate Systems Help You Fail

Forgive me for saying this…
The internet marketing elite…
The Super Affiliates…
The people with the big launches…
…Are some of the dumbest people I’ve ever met. The least creative, most unsavvy, most money-irresponsible people alive.
And I bet that you’re at least a little smarter than they are.
So why are they building a big brand for themselves, earning millions of dollars, while you remain relatively nameless?
Why does everyone know THEM and not you?
Simple.
Because of how affiliate marketing systems work. Almost everyone is DESTINED to fail except for a few special people…who are holding their secrets close and dear.
Affiliate Marketing Systems serve one purpose and one only.
It’s to be Viral Traffic Machines.
And guess who drives it?
YOU.
…You, the affiliate who pays a monthly membership so you can remain eligible to earn commission from the system.
What this means is that…
With every new member that joins your affiliate system, the competition increases infinitely AGAINST your best interests.
The same activities you want to excel at…
Like recruiting new members…
Like getting traffic…
Like selling more affiliate products…
Those are the very activities that reduce your odds of ever making a profit.
And it’s not a surprise, if you think about it …
Every member sells the SAME product.
…For the SAME price…
…To the SAME type of prospects…
…On the SAME advertising avenues…
…Using the SAME sales and advertising messages
This leaves NO REASON whatsoever for prospects to buy from you instead of some other affiliate or distributor. The more affiliates involved in the program, the less anyone needs to buy the program from you specifically.
They can buy from ANY of the growing number of affiliates promoting the program.
But what if I could show you how to stand out with one or two differences…
Like how cool would it be if you could change the PRICE of the affiliate products you market?
Suppose you were the ONLY affiliate who gets to sell the same product as every other member…for a significantly cheaper price.
People would automatically prefer to buy from you.
The word would get out, and prospects of OTHER members will seek you out and buy through your link instead of whoever introduced them to the program first!
And even though I could show you how to do that, it’s probably not the best strategy.
Considering that the cost of advertising is constantly increasing…
You’re better off charging MORE money for the same product – which might surprise you – but that’s also possible!
If you do this correctly, it’s easier.
More of the referrals of others will seek you out and buy through your links instead of from those poor miserable regular affiliates who compete with you.
But hey, no one’s going to pay a premium price for the exact product they can get somewhere else for cheaper.
There is a way though…
In one of my earliest experiments with Network Marketing opportunities i personalised the opportunity with some bonuses that allowed me to sell at 4,000 dollars instead of 2,000 like the rest of the opportunity’s distributors.
I did it so frequently and easily, without a single phone call, that my sponsor had to swallow his pride and ask me to show him how i did it.
Wouldn’t you love to be able to do that?
How much more traffic could you get with an extra 2,000 per sale?
The biggest problem with promoting affiliate products is that affiliate products have a number of limitations that stump marketing.
For example, you can’t control the price. And that’s one of the basic things any successful business should be able to do.
If it costs more to acquire a customer than the initial planned price of the sale, real businesses are able to simply raise the asking price of their product to account for the added cost.
It’s their right to profit with every sale, regardless of their expense.
All products you buy now, you don’t JUST pay for the cost of the product’s production. Part of what you pay covers some cost of distribution, some cost of employees, and most importantly some cost of advertising.
So your $2 can of coke has only about 5 cents worth of raw ingredients. The $1.95 extra you pay, covers distribution, employees, shipping, share-holder profit, interest on loans, maintence of manufacturing plants, electric bills, water bills, and most importantly, advertising for new customers!
Affiliates, on the other hand, can’t do this easily.
If customer acquisition costs more than their commission, they are stuck trying to find cheaper or free traffic instead. Which is infinitely harder.
Another limitation of Affiliate products is that you can’t control the competition.
In a real business, if a company’s product is in a heavily saturated market, they would simply modify their product or audience in such a way that they eliminate competition.
Affiliates can’t do this.
The marketing messages, product content, landing pages, follow-up, and sales pages are designed for ONE very broad target audience targeted by all affiliates. You can’t change anything that would allow you to stand out and reach a different audience with a unique set of problems.
Imagine being able to sell your “make money” affiliate ebook to car buffs, unemployed students, art enthusiasts…any specific audience you creatively figure out a way to help with this product.
Imagine being able to do this – instead of going to the over-saturated and limiting audience the product owners determined for you and the rest of their 1000’s of affiliates.
This is exactly what i’ve been successful doing with my clients.
And i’m going to be teach it to you in my 8-Pillar Super Traffic System.
With my super traffic system you’ll be able to PERSONALISE your affiliate products so you can overcome all the limitations of your affiliate products – without needing to create your own.
You’ll be able to reach new audiences, use new advertising messages, and adjust your price to accunt for your advertising costs.
You won’t have to pay for their god-awful marketing from your own pocket.
Your customers will pay for your traffic instead.
You can even get your “make money” affiliate products and opportunities to run safely on Google and Facebook, even though they normally despise these markets.
And it’s all perfectly legal, and a common practice that they want to keep from you because they’re afraid… (more on that tomorrow).
It’s not ready yet, but when it is, i’ll be sharing my system FIRST with the Early Birds on the list below:
