   “How does one get a successful start in affiliate marketing with no experience?”

You might think “no experience” would be a disadvantage, but it can be the opposite–if you’re lucky enough to have found me before the frauds got to you with all their “easy” bullshit short-cuts.

The trouble with most “experienced” affiliate marketers who have yet to make it, is they’ve learned all the wrong things and now they view ALL new teaching through that old broken lens.

i try to show them something different and correct, but they can’t help twisting it back into the familiar.

On the other hand, when you have no prior experience, and i show you the correct way to do affiliate marketing, you won’t have any baggage holding you back.

Some examples…

They’re in the Habit of Treating it as a Hustle

Unsuccessful “experienced” affiliates treat affiliate marketing as a side hustle. They’ve grabbed affiliate links from random products, they’ve thrown them all over the web, and they’ve crossed their fingers and prayed for a miracle that never comes. Now they’re looking for new places to get traffic.

On the other hand, with me, I teach you to do affiliate marketing like a proper business. You build a marketing plan, you allocate a budget, you make projections, and you use feedback mechanisms to remain on target to your projections. You learn to be systematic, calculating, and intelligent in your every action.

Their Heart’s REeeeALLY Set on Some Product

Unsuccessful “experienced” affiliates start with a product and try to find an audience for it (or force it upon an audience)…they want every instruction to somehow work to sell that particular product. but they’re just as likely to change product tomorrow if they think they’ll do better with another one.

On the other hand, I teach you to only ever work with ONE audience and to diversify the products you offer them. You choose the audience first, based on what you can offer them, irrespective of the product.

They’re Convinced They Don’t Really Need a Website

Unsuccessful “experienced” affiliates do not have a website, or they have MULTIPLE dead websites–just domain names they bought at some point and continue to renew because omg this domain is omg so cool. When they do have a website, it’s always one-pager or a single-entry blog.

On the other hand, with me, you learn to concentrate on building and growing a single website, central to all your affiliate activity. It’s not made around a single programme or product, but rather, around one audience and it promotes ALL your affiliate programmes and products. What’s an online business without a website anyway?

They’ve Chosen a Product Based on Their Own Needs

Unsuccessful “experienced” affiliates select products based purely on money metrics, such as percentage of commission, whether or not commissions are recurring, the sheer size of a commission, or the “gravity” — which says how popular the product is among affiliates (because, presumably, they’re making sooooo much money selling it)…None of which translates to any good reason for anyone to buy a product from them.

On the other hand, with me, you learn to seek products to match your audience’s needs with a rigorous process that guarantees they WANT the affiliate products you promote to them.

They Advertise The Wrong Pages

Unsuccessful “experienced” affiliates do not know how to build proper landing pages. Either they use the “system page” which is a TERRIBLE idea…or they replicate it and fail to convert much traffic into leads…

On the other hand, with me, you learn to build landing pages that prime visitors to spend money. You learn to use User Interface Marketing to maximise response and grow an audience exclusive to you, ready to buy from all of your endorsements.

They Think A Commission is the Final Goal

Unsuccessful “experienced” affiliates think the only value of a lead is the immediate sale of the single product they’re currently endorsing. If they sell the product, their role is over. If they don’t sell it, fuck the lead, it’s useless, and their role is over. It’s why they’re always seeking free and cheap traffic.

On the other hand, with me, you learn a customer’s value goes beyond a single product sale and you learn to scale your revenue through relationship, engagement, value, and the support of customers.

They Don’t Properly Value Leads

Unsuccessful “experienced” affiliates…if they even collect leads are not bothering to follow-up with them nor do they respect them. Their subscribers end up being sporadically spammed with boring replicated emails. They have multiple mailing lists, each collected for the purpose of promoting some product, each abandoned when they change product.

On the other hand, with me, you learn the most proiftable asset of your business is the leads you collect. Collecting leads give you multiple chances to sell to an audience receptive to you, who welcome and look forward to your communication. You learn how to follow-up with them to increase loyalty, trust, and your own authority….

They’re Always Thirsty For Freer Traffic

Unsuccessful “experienced” affiliates are ALWAYS looking for more traffic. In fact, it’s their default starting point. They’re obsessed with its freeness or cheapness. But if you gave them all the traffic in the world it would never be enough because they’re not equipped to turn it into revenue.

On the other hand, with me, i teach you to lay down ALL the pieces of your marketing, sales, and conversion first. Only when you have a way to turn traffic into sales and money, will you invest a single ounce of effort or cent of money into traffic. This way, when the traffic flows, you’re generating commissions from the jump. Because your traffic converts into money, you can afford an unlimited supply of traffic. And i teach you how to get the highest quality of traffic whether it’s organic (free) or sponsored (paid)!

See, thethat’s the problem with having all the wrong experience…you have some broken ideas that are incompatible with what i’m teaching.

But when you have “no experience”, you come without baggage and that could be good for you if you listen to me.

When you work through the manuals of the Super Traffic Machine, i show you the right way to build your affiliate marketing business and set it up for success.

The question is, are you smart enough to recognise the real deal from the lies? Because there’s a lot of predators out there ready to sell you sweet dreams about how easy and fast they’re gonna get you earning…

if you go down that route, you’ll be an UNsuccessful “experienced” (lol) affiliate.

But if you’re interested in being a successful affiliate and you’re not scared of a little work, i can show you the right way to get started. No matter what your experience.

The Other Half the Google Story

Running Pay-Per-Click ads on Google is like going to the market and buying fruit. Some are good, some are bad. You're constantly testing and tasting to see which keywords and ad combinations bring the best results.
And that's not an exaggeration–I mean, you literally plonk your ad in the center of a crowded marketplace full of people searching keywords related to your business. And you just pay Google a small fee for every time a customer responds to your ad.
