In today’s episode you are going to learn How To Do Affiliate Marketing With Paid Advertising with John Crestani.
Here’s How To Do Affiliate Marketing With Paid Advertising
This isn’t for everybody, I’ve looked at my demographics and i know a lot of you folks from like India and Pakistan complain about having no money.
This video is not for you, go to my free traffic videos by clicking here. Go to those videos, but if you are interested in learning how to do things fast.
Paid advertising helps you make big money fast but you need to have money to do paid advertising. You can get started very cheaply with paid advertising.
If you promote app install type offers you can get started for as low as a few bucks. Ten bucks can get you started in paid advertising.
So let’s get into the three top tips i have for you to start getting into my favorite part of affiliate marketing, my favorite traffic source paid advertising.
1. Test Offers To See What Converts Best
Now one of the mistakes that a lot of people like MLM, People fall into is they fall in love with whatever they offer like lularoe, amway, herbalife, they love that one product.
Whereas with paid advertising you can’t fall in love with any particular offer, You need to just test task test and go with whatever pays you the most money.
Take a motion completely out of the situation and just focus on the data of what pays you the most money. Having one offer just puts you in a dangerous place.
Because if that offer goes away then you’re left without a income source and also some offers don’t convert as well.
So again you need to test, some networks go away, some affiliate networks go away as well. So once again you should have multiple offers that you are testing.
What the real world ramification of this advise is actually that when you’re building out your marketing funnels, when your building out your ads or pre-sale page…
You should basically make them “offer blind” or make your ads blind so that they can apply to not just one sort of weight loss pill but you can market multiple weight loss pills.
So an example would be is that you don’t get to specific on the one product or the one company you keep everything in your marketing high level.
So that again it gives you the flexibility for people to buy whatever it is you end up recommending.
You’ll notice in my marketing i say sign up for a website with my top recommended hosting company…
I don’t get into the specifics of what the particular company is because again my top recommended hosting company changes from time to time.
The second major piece of advice on How To Do Affiliate Marketing With Paid Advertising here is always need to use a pre-sell page or a landing page or whatever you want to call it.
2. Always Use A Pre-Sell or Landing Page
- Major Advertising Networks Do Not Allow You To Link Directly To Affiliate Offers
- It “Warms Up” The Traffic
Even if you were allowed to direct link to affiliate offers, it won’t be worth while. I tried it and that’s what held me back for four years.
You want to warm up the audience, you need to sell them. Again people don’t want to just step in and see a product and say “Okay it’s 50 bucks i don’t want to buy this”.
You need to explain to them and create the rationale. Give them a video, give them an article or give them a blog post…
That really convince them of why this product is something they’d want to buy.
This should be a way of educating them so an example be you write an article that say’s 19 ways to earn money on the internet even if you have zero in your bank account.
Then you go on to list out a number of offers or products that they can sign up for if they want to start making money online for instance.
Another example might be a blog post that says how i got five dates and got laid for the very first time as a 30 year old after i learned these two things about women.
This is an example if you’re in the relationships niche, that would be a very interesting blog post that somebody might read and you can sell that person and make a commissions.
Again the recommendation, people hate being sold and the recommendation coming from an article, a blog post is going to have a massive effect on conversion rates.
You should be seeing 10% conversion rates when people click over to the affiliate offer that you are promoting. You will not get that if you are using direct linking to the offer.
And this is what actually held me back for four years in affiliate marketing i kept trying to do it the hard way by not having a website.
I failed way more than i ever succeeded but once i actually started using pre-sell pages…
And i love using Click Funnels to create them then i started making hundreds of thousands of dollars per month.
Now, my third piece of advice on How To Do Affiliate Marketing With Paid Advertising is to never forget to build your email list if you can.
3. Build Your E-Mail List
I know marketers who were making millions of dollars per year and now are making nothing because they never build a list.
Once their ads stopped working, their income goes to zero, now what’s great is if you have an email list you keep making money even if your ads are turned off.
What’s great about me is for me i have an email list of over a million people right now of people who have signed up for various email list promotions of mine over the years.
I have a link to sign up for a free webinar and over a million people have signed up to see the free webinar over course of the last 2 or 3 years.
That’s help me also create another income stream right there from my email list and you can build multiple list as well so you can build:
- SMS Notification List
- Build Chat List
- Chat Bot List
- Notification List
You know this is sort of a list right here, my YouTube Subscribers. There’s a lot of ways that you can build up your digital assets while doing paid advertising to make money.
My advice is to get people on as many different list as possible and it’ll help you for the long term.
