heya – i know it’s been a while since i sent out a newsletter…but i have a life off the computer now that i’ve got a baby on the way.
couldn’t get back to sleep, so i’ll share with you this HILARIOUS survey i recently took…and what it has to do with you.
the survey was shown to new subscribers of this list. and it asked a few simple questions.
the first was: “What do you need traffic for?”
and the second was “How would you like to get traffic?”
Interestingly enough, 90% of the people surveyed were affiliate marketers.
Now, I realise YOU might not be an affiliate yourself, but the vast majority of our subscribers are affiliates.
Which is why i often reference affiliate marketing strategies in this newsletter.
But this isn’t why i’m laughing.
what was funny is this…
Of all the options available for the second question, the response most commonly chosen was…
…not free traffic
…not paid traffic
…it wasn’t even to LEARN traffic…
The most commonly picked answer was to HIRE an expert to generate traffic for them.
Ironically enough, most of the people who chose that answer also said they didn’t have ANY/much money to spend.
Again, i realise these responses are not representative of EVERY subscriber…and YOU would have probably given different responses.
Here’s the thing…
if you’re an affiliate marketer, you’re choosing to not go through the trouble of creating a product to sell.
and that’s fine.
as long as there are product publishers out there looking for people to promote their products for them…there will always be money to be made by people who want to do the job of promotion.
In other words, there will always be room for AFFILIATE MARKETERS.
But anyone who takes that job has to either already know how to get traffic…or has to be willing to learn how.
So if you think you’re going to hire someone to do that job, you’re SADLY mistaken.
You would eliminate your role entirely.
In fact, you won’t find anyone to do it.
See for “hiring out traffic” to be profitable for an affiliate marketer, he would need to find someone willing to do it for a fraction of the affiliate’s commission.
And if such a traffic person existed, they wouldn’t know what the FUGK they’re doing!
I mean, ANYONE can easily become an affiliate for any program.
So a real traffic expert will not generate traffic for you at a fraction of the pay they could get by signing up to be an affiliate for that program themselves.
I mean, take me for example…
My traffic skills are very valuable because i can enter any market i want, HIRE people to create a product for me for a flat fee and then flood it with traffic and sell the heck out of it.
As a traffic guy, i can buy the rights to a product ONE TIME.
Only a Publisher (product creator) would have to pay a traffic guy every time he generates a sale.
So I’m not interested in 30%, 50%, or even 70% of the sale. Especially not when i can get 100%.
Sure i’ll take on clients…
but not affiliate marketers.
My point is if you’re an affiliate marketer, TRAFFIC IS YOUR JOB.
And just like you wouldn’t do well at a job you don’t have the right qualification and experience for…
You’re just not going to be a very good affiliate if you don’t gain experience and knowledge in traffic.
You can’t pawn traffic on someone else.
You can’t “hire it out”.
You’ve got to LEARN to get traffic…or else, go get yourself another profession.
So if you haven’t learned traffic yet and you’re affiliate…if you’re not making commissions regularly and consistently…then i suggest you get started by learning my Traffic KickStart method.
It doesn’t get easier or more straightforward than this.
