I want to share with
you a profound insight I’ve had recently that I believe
will be extremely profitable for the average affiliate marketer.
Here’s some background…
It has been the most exhausting,
yet most fulfilling time of online marketing career. Printed proudly in front
of me are three of eight total planned manuals of the DIY Super Traffic
Machine series – an encyclopedic trophy containing over 7 years of my experience in traffic
generation for the super affiliate, distilled into explicit step by step, click
by click, screen by screen instruction.
What’s been a bit of a
running joke around the labs is how our “final revision” ends up significantly EXPANDING
the training material, instead of shortening it.
Indeed, we start with
50 – 90 page manuals which rapidly turn into 200 or 300 pages!
And I’ve battled with this. For two reasons. Your attention spans aren’t exactly the best. And because I’m not such a young guy any more–sure I’m 30-something but I hurt in
more places than a 60 year old with a lifelong desk career behind him. And
in terms of financial reward, this isn’t exactly one of my most profitable programs.
But it’s been a labour of love.
Each time, we look
through the material, we ask ourselves, “Can this be shorter?”
The answer is a
What makes me ok with the
ridiculous hours and sleepless nights I have to put in while trying to meet our
monthly deadline AND still produce something as thorough as we do, is that I think what we’re working on will change your life.
For example, the last
manual we sent our students taught how to create a “presales page”–which is a
short page preparing your traffic to buy your affiliate product. Super
affiliates whip tens of these in no time flat to make 100’s sometimes 1000’s of sales each day.
Meaning, if you know what you’re doing, presales pages are REALLY SIMPLE to create
and very lucrative.
But most affiliate
marketers don’t know what they’re doing. And for all the copywriting courses
they buy, often from the top copywriters in the world…they just fail to learn to monetize their affiliate traffic.
In revising the last
manual, I had a revelation.
The copywriting masters
who charge a lot of money to learn from them–they don’t really teach.
In a paragraph or two,
they say, “Write a compelling pitch”…and then load up on examples of their own
best copy, along with “swipe headlines” and patterns you can “steal”, possibly
over pages and pages. They dissect their own example and explain the “psychology”
behind the words…which is often really more of an afterthought than their original plan.
What they want you to
do is look at their examples and just “get it”.
While I have great
respect for their skill…
Reality is, theirs is primarily instinctual and loaded with experience. THEY get it. People reading their material who have a copywriting background get it.
But most of their
students are beginners TRYING to learn to make money from their traffic. They just don’t have the necessary experience, instinct, or imagination to understand how the examples can be adapted to work for them.
I compared this, on
the other hand, to what our Super Traffic Machine series does in its third traffic-focused
Halfway through the text,
i realized that every instruction we’d given until that point was walking you through how to extract,
organize, and prioritize the IDEAS that end up in the short 500 odd page presales
Our instructions were
purely mechanical: Move this, group that, copy this, label that…
Meaning, what the
other guys would have simply instructed as, “Write a compelling pitch” WE broke down into exactly HOW this critical “compelling pitch” is written. No imagination on
your part required.
Is it any wonder then that
our instructions end up taking a lot of space?
How are you supposed
to know how to do these critical tasks if someone doesn’t walk you through the
process of doing them, at least once?
The “process based”
approach is a running theme in the entire Super Traffic Machine series.
As a guy who learned
programming very young, I have spent my entire life instructing dumb as heck
computers how to do the simplest tasks that humans have no trouble with. My best skill is turning complex ideas into simple, sequential steps.
series is merely an expansion on what I’ve done all my life. The difference is,
I’m instructing human students who are infinitely more intelligent than the
smartest computer–but what I do better than anyone else is make sure you have
ALL the steps you need, in sequence, without assuming anything about how you interpret some
general instruction or pattern I might otherwise show you.
Meaning, if you’re a
subscriber of the Super Traffic Machine series, you are very lucky.
Because I’ve mechanized
my own “instinctual” process or “talent” into straightforward steps. So our
students can trot around inside my head–start learning and reproducing the
internal mental patterns of someone successful at this traffic thing. And in
the worst case, they can come close to reproducing the right patterns for their
own financial advancement.
With this Super Traffic
series, our subscribers finally have a shot of ACTUALLY creating a lucrative
affiliate marketing business for themselves.

not subscribed to the DIY Super Traffic Machine, then you’re not this lucky.
