MoneySites Official Site

The first time I heard about MoneySites, it was through an email from Travis Sago I believe. At first, I wasn’t really interested. There’s so much hype and BS in the Im market, I just deleted the email.

But then Travis invited his readers to a webinar, and even though there’s always a pitch at the end of those things, since I trust Travis’s recommendations, I thought I’d go and watch anyway.

Turns out MoneySites teaches how to find ‘buyer keywords’, and show you how to quickly build small niche sites that rank well in Google’s search results. On the webinar, they showed 4 of their sites that have collectively made around $60,000 in the last 12 months.

At the end of the webinar, I took the plunge and joined the MoneySites ‘labs’ program, and it’s been a great ride so far.

So anyway – here’s my MoneySites Review.

MoneySites Review – What is it?

MoneySites has an interesting hook…

Have you ever wondered if maybe you could start to add little income streams to your life, without wasting a bunch of time or risking a lot of money in the process. Maybe you could use a few hundred dollars a month to help pay the bills. Or a couple of thousand to buy a bigger home, take a vacation, or pay school fee.

MoneySites is all about showing you how to do that and more, and doing it very quickly. The training consists of 7 different courses that teach you how to:

  • How to create and sell digital products
  • How to do a podcast to siphon buyers out of iTunes
  • How to building highly profitable, ultra passive money sites that generate affiliate income
  • How to write sales copy and email copy
  • How to get ranked in the search engines for whatever keyword terms you want
  • How to outsource your projects and your tasks so you can make more and work less

It’s all stuff that once you know how to do it, you can either do it over and over again yourself, or outsource it to a team of low paid workers overseas.

MoneySites Review – What I Liked

I loved the fact that each course in the MoneySites is stand alone, and you can pick and choose which one you want to start with. For me, building small lazer focused niche sites that can rank in Google and make a couple of affiliate sales every day suits me perfectly.

This one part of the training is probably all I’ll really need. The goal is to have say a dozen sites earning $10 to $20 a day each selling affiliate products this year. The step by step nature of the training makes it seem pretty easy to reach that goal. Maybe I’ll raise my sights after that.

MoneySites Review – What I Didn’t Like

The one thing I didn’t like about MoneySites was the fact that there are so many courses to choose from inside the members area, it might be easy to get overwhelmed. Since I’m good at starting stuff but not so good at finishing stuff, the first time I logged into the members area, I wasn’t sure where to start.

But after asking Jason what his thoughts were during one of the ‘Traffic and Affiliate Coaching Calls they have every week, I was sure that focusing on the mini-site strategy was right for me.

MoneySites Review – Overall Thoughts

I really like the MoneySites training because after spending years of buying product after product without getting any real results, I’ve now got a blueprint that works, and somebody to bounce ideas and problems off each week so I don’t get stuck.

If you’ve ever been curious about how super affiliates make so much money when the average affiliates makes nothing… Or if you’ve ever wondered how you could add one or more income streams to your life without wasting time or money, then you’ll love it!

Affiliate Marketing Training – Turning Prospects Into Buyers

Affiliate Marketing Training

The Affiliate Marketing Training Sequence

In this affiliate marketing training post, we’re going to talk about something that most affiliates simply can’t do. Turn their email subscribers into customers.

For most affiliates, figuring out what kind of messages to send to their email subscribers is so hard, they often don’t even try to build a list. And many affiliate marketing training courses blindly skip over this, and do a lot of new affiliates a huge dis-service.

But the fact is, having a responsive list will multiply the money you make from your affiliate marketing efforts by at least 5 times, and probably 10 times or more.

So what is the best ratio of informational content to product offers? Here’s a simple but extremely powerful email sequence you can use right away to get more people, buying more stuff through your affiliate link, more often.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Use This Proven Email Sequence

So once a person has joined your list, the first followup message should always thank them for subscribing, and let them know that they’ve made a great choice by joining your list. And like I’m giving you here in this affiliate marketing training, you should start giving them the kind of information that’s going to help them get from where they are to want to be.

This is NOT the time to start pushing products down people’s throats. You should start out by trying to build a relationship with your readers. And the best way to do that is to help people to start moving towards their goals, whatever they are. By TRULY helping people before you ask them to give you money, they are going to be much more likely to buy from you, both now or in the future.

But what if after you’ve sent an initial email series that’s built a relationship, offered a couple of affiliate products, and they haven’t purchased anything?

Below I’ve given you a simple email sequence that contains a lot of very powerful physiological triggers. Your readers probably won’t be able to stop themselves from buying from you if the products you promote really do help them to overcome their problems.

Affiliate Marketing Training -The Secret To Maximizing Affiliate Commissions

In the next email, you highlight one of the major problems the product you are currently promoting helps to solve, and discuss the problem and the consequences of having it in the person’s life.

You want to aggravate the pain your reader is feeling about this problem, so that they realize they need to take action and fix it. At the end of your email, briefly mention that tomorrow you will give them the solution to the problem you highlighted today. The idea here is to open a loop in your reader’s mind and get them looking forward to hearing from you the next day.

The next day, close the loop in your reader’s mind by showing them how the affiliate product will solve their problem. Make an irresistible offer by adding in a bonus or another product that complements the offer, and you’ll usually see a big spike in sales as people read through your message.

For those people who don’t buy, send them your third message which highlights another problem the product helps people solve. Talk about this second problem, and make readers start to feel the need to solve it if it’s affecting them.

The forth message the next day should then show how the product can help solve this next problem. Then simply do this with each problem your product helps to solve until people buy from you.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Test This Sequence Yourself And Seen The Results

As I said earlier in this affiliate marketing training, any affiliate marketer should be building a list and use\ing simple email sequences like this to both build a strong relationship with their readers and make more sales. Capture people onto an email database, then follow up for a few days showing different ways they can solve their main problem by buying your main affiliate product.

If they haven’t bought by then, go through and highlight another single problem the product solves one day, and give them the solution the next. Then highlight another problem two days later, and give them the solution the next day. Just keep doing that doing until they buy your main affiliate product, or something else you want to promote. That’s all there is to it. Thanks for reading this affiliate marketing training article. I really hope it helps.

Affiliate Marketing Training – What You Must Know

Affiliate Marketing Training

Affiliate Marketing Training – JV’s

In this affiliate marketing training post, we’re going to talk about why earning affiliate marketing money is great – and making money as an affiliate while you are working from home sure beats having a JOB…


To tell you the truth, there’s something that’s even better than that!

Once you begin building your own lists of prospects and especially customers – that really is the ticket to having your cake, and eating it too. Why is that?

Because once you have these lists, not only can you send your readers to ANY offer you want, you can also start doing something that the most profitable online affiliate marketing experts do; you can start joining in with the big guys in their Joint Venture (JV) deals.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Creating Profitable JV Deals

So what is an online “JV” deal, and how does it work?

Well, it’s really pretty simple…

The first step is to approach a bunch of other people in your industry or niche, and ask them if they’d like to become partners in some deals you are putting together. Of course, you’ll need to be prepared for some knock backs – some people just don’t get the concept and they’ll think you’re trying to steal ‘their’ customers.

The thing is, and as you’ll see in future affiliate marketing training posts, there’s no such thing as ‘your’ customers. People are gonna buy all kinds of stuff from all kinds of people. You are NEVER going going to have a monopoly on selling products or services to any single customer, so there’s no use worrying about it.

So once you’ve found your group of people who understand that by working together you can all make a bunch more money, it’s time to create some mutually beneficial deals where you’ll all share and profit from each other’s resources.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Why Joint Ventures Are So Powerful

Seriously, the options for making a profit from these things are enormous, and are only limited by your collective imaginations. For example, you can do cross promotions, ad swaps, and band together to do mailings with other big list owners to sell even more products, AND to build your own lists even bigger in the process.

You cannot believe how powerful, and profitable this concept really is until you see it in action for yourself! And this might sound hard to believe, but these kinds of “JV” deals are making people doing online affiliate marketing millions and millions every single month.

Affiliate Marketing Training – An Affiliate JV Case Study

As an example of the kind of deals you can do, I heard of one guy who’d been through a couple of affiliate marketing training programs and was starting to see the potential of working with other people in this way. He wanted to offer the BEST bonus he possibly could (which included an iPad) during a big launch, so he could win the top JV prize. Problem was he didn’t have the money to go it alone, but he had an idea.

He went out and asked 20 other affiliates to join in with him for the promotion, and most of them agreed to be a part of his JV, because they wanted to be part of the launch but didn’t have time to create their own really great bonuses.

They put together a killer bonus package including the iPad and a bunch of training, and everybody promoted the one bonus package through the main affiliate’s link. They sold so many products that the main affiliate won the major prize in the JV competition (lots of cash, which he shared with everybody in the group), and everyone made lots of juicy commissions for hardly any time or work.

Pretty cool idea, huh?

So if this online affiliate marketing lesson about working with JV partners has given you some ideas, check out this Moneysites review. The MoneySites course teaches you everything you need to know about getting traffic to a website, building a list of people who love to hear (and buy) from you, and meeting JV partners who can really ramp up your earnings.

Affiliate Marketing Training - The Secret

Affiliate Marketing Training – The Secret

In this affiliate marketing training, you’re going to learn how to make money as an affiliate the right way, so grab a pen and listen up.

It doesn’t matter what niche you are in… your readers what results. They aren’t just shooting the breeze when they are visiting your website or blog. They are there because they are looking for some kind of result. And your goal is to help them start moving towards whatever it is that they want.

And when you do it right, it’s like drugs to them…

But you’ve gotta remember that if you just try to SELL them stuff like just about every other affiliate does – you’re never gonna get the results YOU want.

You’ll work your tail off doing the same worn out crap that everybody else does. And you’ll get the same results as them.

Not cool.

Remember – you want to know how to do affiliate marketing right – and since the majority are ALWAYS wrong, you don’t want to do what the average affiliate does.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Give People Results In Advance

This is probably the biggest affiliate marketing training tips you’ll ever read… A few weeks ago, I was going back through Frank Kern’s Mass Control training, and I was reminded about what he calls “Results In Advance”

It’s where you sit down and work out the PROCESS your prospect needs to go through to get the results they are after. And then you show them specifically HOW to get the first couple of steps in getting that result completed.

Instead of “hinting” that they will get a result if they buy the product you are recommending (affiliate marketing training typically calls this giving people ‘useful but incomplete’ content), you give them the information and tools they need to actually start getting some results.

Affiliate Marketing Training Tip – You Need People’s Attention

As I said earlier, when you give people the help they need to start moving towards their goals, it’s like drugs to them.

They want more of the same, because they can see their life changing for the better just because of the free stuff you gave them.

Your status goes way up in the eyes of your reader because you’ve demonstrating higher value.

And that generates… ATTENTION.

And once you have their attention, you control their frame of reference.

So how do you give people results in advance?

Well the best way to start is to map out the steps in the process your prospect needs to go through to achieve the result they are looking for.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Let’s Look At An Example

Let’s say your readers want to know how to find their dream life partner.

The steps in the process are probably something like this –

  • Approach a women they are attracted to without getting instantly rejected and made to feel like a leper
  • Get to know her and hold a conversation without looking like a stupid dork
  • Ask for her phone number in a way that’s cool without looking needy and desperate
  • Call her and ask for a first date in a way she finds almost impossible to say no to
  • Know what to say and how to act on that first date so you get THE NEXT date
  • And so on…

See, there are steps like this in EVERY process, and if you break it down in this way, they are easy to see.

Then your goal becomes giving your readers the first few steps in the process so they see initial results.

Affiliate Marketing Training – How To Look Like A Genius

If you do this, your readers are gonna see you as a freakin genius, and they will take your advice in the future when you recommend products or services that help move them closer towards their ultimate goal.

OK, so that’s the end of this affiliate marketing training article and now you’ve got some work to do. Plan out the 10 steps required to get to the main goal your prospects are trying to achieve.

Then start thinking about how you can give them results in advance so they can start reaching the first step or two.

The final step in learning how to do affiliate marketing profitably, is to tie products that help your readers complete ALL of the remaining steps involved in getting them to your goal. So you GIVE them the first few steps, and let them BUY the rest.

How cool is that?

Affiliate Marketing Training – Make Money From Blogging

Affiliate Marketing Training

Affiliate Marketing Training – Blogging

A couple of days ago as part of this affiliate marketing training series on how to make money from blogging, I said that when you are starting out, you should forget about trying to get traffic.

And that’s true. You need to put a few things in place and have a working ‘sales process’ ready to go before you worry about trying to attract people to your blog.

However… that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start thinking about planting the seeds of your first traffic sources.

And to do that…

Online forums are fantastic.

But before I continue with your affiliate marketing training, I don’t want you to take what I just said the wrong way – this is not the time to be mindlessly spending 8 hours a day surfing half a dozen forums and chatting with people.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Think Strategically For Your Blog

So that means once you’ve decided on the ‘starving crowd’ of people you are going to go after, you can get yourself known as a leader in the market for just about any niche you want to.

All you need to do is spend a small amount of time each day connecting with and helping out other people in a popular Forum, and pretty soon you’ll start to see the results.

In fact, some of the very best customers in your niche, along with the top potential joint venture partners, will be active in the popular forums in your market.

People with similar interests like to congregate in groups and share ideas, information, and friendship. And forums are one of the best platforms ever for doing that.

So before you go looking for visitors to your site, you can be planting some seeds for the future, so when you’ve gone through the rest of this affiliate marketing training and you’re ready, you’ll be able to hit the ground running.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Leveraging Niche Forums

GIVE the other forum members your time, experience and knowledge, without expecting anybody to give you anything back in return. You will find that this will pay big dividends for you in the future.

It’s amazing how when you help people solve a pressing problem they are struggling with, they’ll often feel obligated to give you money (as in, buy the stuff you recommend), or tell their friends about how great you are.

Always have a provocative signature file on your posts (where these are allowed by forum rules) with a call to action that takes people to your Facebook Fan page or a blog post.

But please, NEVER send people to a squeeze page or try to force them onto an email list right away. Fan pages are a terrific way to continue the conversation using social media marketing, which is what posting on Forums really is all about.

Or sending people to a blog post from a forum is less confronting than using a squeeze page for getting a relationship started with your readers.

If you send people to your blog, have an obvious optin ‘Bribe’ offer (discussed later on in this affiliate marketing training) on the top right hand side of the page so you can build a list. If you have given your visitors great content, many will join your list to hear more from you.

Affiliate Marketing Training – A Blogging Case Study

My first experience at learning how to make money from blogging using a forum was a total fluke.

As I mentioned in another post, I’ve always enjoyed Stock trading, and I joined a forum a few years back to chat with other traders (trading can be a very lonely business, sitting there on your own looking at a screen day in, day out).

Anyhow, I sorta got known as somebody who gave helpful advice and lots of people wanted more. So after a few months, I put a basic blog together to share some of my thoughts on trading.

Noting happened for 6 months or so (I didn’t even know I could use a Sig file in my forum posts – duh!) until one day, another forum member happened to find my blog and mentioned it in a post.

From that day, all hell broke lose…

I was promoting a couple of products as an affiliate, and my income went from 50 bucks a month in Adsense to $800 a month in just a few months.

And that was from only ONE forum. I wasn’t building a list. I really had no clue what I was doing.

If I had known more about how to make money from blogging, I could have pumped forums for everything they were worth and really ramped things up. Anyhow, forum marketing can be an absolute gold mine for you if you want to do any kind of affiliate marketing, or sell your own products. It’s serious fun too. Definitely try it out.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Make Money With A Blog

Affiliate Marketing Training

Affiliate Marketing Training – Affiliate Blogs

In this affiliate marketing training post, we’re going to look at how to make money with a simple affiliate blog and succeed in making money from home.

In a recent article, I said you want to find a sub-niche that’s got plenty of passionate buyers (a starving crowd), but you don’t want to go too small (so it’s not a good idea to look for a sub-sub, nano niche).

That’s because many of these tiny, obscure markets, while they do have passionate buyers, are just too small to support lots of merchants or affiliates.

Makes sense really. It’s going to be very hard to make money with a blog if you are selling affiliate products in a market where there are only a few merchants and not a lot of potential customers.

So that means, going into small, obscure markets is the wrong way to go if you want to build a profitable, sustainable, long-term business for most people.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Short Term Or Long Term?

The whole point of this affiliate marketing training post is to show you how to make money with a blog. To do that, you should go into slightly larger markets that have lots of those lovely, desperate buyers (your starving crowd) – markets that can easily support thousands of merchants and affiliate marketers.

Honestly, that’s where you want to be focusing your time and attention…

We’ve touched on a few ideas for these markets in other affiliate marketing training articles in this series, but here are the biggest markets where almost 99% of the money is changing hands online…

  • Health & Fitness (organic foods, body movement such as Feldenkrais and Reiki, losing weight, raw foods, gaining weight, bodybuilding, living longer, supplements of all kinds, etc…)
  • Business & Money (all kinds of make money from home ideas, stock & forex trading, all types of insurance for consumers and business, investing in (whatever you can think of), etc…)
  • Dating & Relationships (dating advice for all ages (teens to older people) , seduction and pick up methods for guys and girls, how to get your ex back, how to repair relationships for men and women, online dating for all ages, etc…)
  • Personal Development & Self Help (life coaching, the sedona method, goal setting and achievement, release technique, Tony Robbins, etc…)
  • Property & Real Estate (private money for people who don’t qualify for bank funding, mortgages for those who do, investing in family homes and apartments, property development, REO properties, creative financing, investing in commercial and industrial property, etc…)
  • Gambling/Betting (sports betting, winning at professional poker, beating the casino, how to win at bingo, betting on horses or dogs, etc…)

All of these markets are also perfectly suited if you want to make money with a blog.

And within every one of those markets, are MANY niches you can profit from…

And every one of those niches supports MANY sub-niches. The narrow-but-not-tiny categories where the real money can be made.

Affiliate Marketing Training – What’s Your Answer To This Question?

So let me ask you a quick question…

Which one or two of the broad markets above do you have a real interest in? Which one do you have an affinity with?

If there is one, I would suggest digging deeper and starting from there. If not, keep digging until you find one.

The truth is you can make money with a blog in any market if you can help a starving crowd of passionate people solve a problem or help them with a passion. That’s where you want to start your search for your little patch of gold.

I really hope you’ve found this affiliate marketing training post helpful. For more ideas about how to make money with an affiliate blog, check out our MoneySites Review.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Build An Affiliate Marketing Blog

Affiliate Marketing Training

Affiliate Marketing Training – Build A Blog

In this affiliate marketing training post, I’ll show you how to start making money with an affiliate marketing blog, the first thing you should do is to forget about traffic … at least for now.

That’s probably completely back-ass-wards from what you’ve heard about making money online, but please let me explain…

If you’re ever going to make money with your affiliate marketing blog, then before you think about getting any traffic, you’re gonna need to find people who are going to BUY stuff from you, or you’ll just be spinning your wheels and wasting your time.

So let’s start at the very beginning…

Affiliate Marketing Training – Finding The Best Niche

  • First step: you need to pick a solid market (with lots of people already buying products and services through other merchants and affiliates).
  • And then within that market, find a niche (which is a sub-set of that broader market but more focused on one particular topic).
  • And then within that niche, find a narrow category (this is where you look for that starving crowd we discussed in another article).

You’re looking for a crowd of people who have a very specific issue.  People who have a burning need or desire that they want to do something about.

In this part of your affiliate marketing training, your mission is to find a crowd of people who are experiencing an urgent need to remove a frustration, get rid of some kind of pain, or who have something that keeps them awake at night staring at the ceiling. Or another group of people who are great to target are those who have an irrational passion or desire they’d do anything for…

You want to keep digging until you find a group of people who are looking for a SOLUTION to one (or some, or even better, all) of these problems, needs or desires.

Affiliate Marketing Training – The 3 Best Markets To Go Into

Now since the goal of this affiliate marketing training is to give you a huge head start, I thought I’d share the best 3 broad market categories to go after for an affiliate blog if you really want to make good money selling other people’s stuff. Those 3 are…

  • Making money (in anything from stocks, forex, gold, antiques, online, whatever)
  • Health and wellness (TONS of opportunities here)
  • Relationships (this is an evergreen market with lots of demand)

If you drill down into these broad markets until you find a sub-niche that resonates with you, and that you can get some traction in, your affiliate marketing blog has a great chance of making you some really good money.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Here’s A Profitable Example

As part of this affiliate marketing training, I’m going to give you a real example so you can see how it works in real life. One of my true passions is Stock trading and investing. I’ve spent THOUSANDS of dollars on training courses trying to get an edge in the markets.

And over the last 20 years, I’ve learned a lot.

For this reason, I have a natural affinity for talking with all kinds of traders, regardless of where they live the markets they trade.

It’s easy for me because I can relate to them, their hopes and fears, their dreams and desires, and especially their problems.

And it’s these problems we are looking to solve as affiliate marketers.

That’s the sort of market YOU should be looking for.

One where you have a passion, an affinity. A market where people are passionately looking for advice, solutions, for your help to guide them towards where they want to go.

Find that niche market, start helping people, and your ability to build an affiliate marketing blog that makes you a LOT of money is virtually assured.

I hope you found this affiliate marketing training post helpful. For more ideas about how to make good money with an affiliate blog, check out our MoneySites Review.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Critical Affiliate Tips

Affiliate Marketing Training

Two Critical Affiliate Marketing Training Tips

Seems you can get affiliate marketing training just about everywhere online these days. Problem is, most of the advice you get is just plain wrong. Here’s why…

Sure, 10 years ago, affiliate marketing was fairly simple. Pages were easy to get ranked in search engines. Google Adwords ads were cheap. And you could send people straight from your ads to a merchant and get paid.

Life was great. Making money as an affiliate was easy. Not any more.

Affiliate Marketing Training – What’s Changed?

These days, most affiliate marketing training programs fail to mention that making a living as an affiliate is one of the hardest things you’ll ever do if you aren’t sure what you are doing.

Why? Because anybody with an internet connection can put up a free blog and compete with you. There’s ZERO barrier to entry.

But it’s not all bad news. If you start out focusing on a niche where there’s a ‘starving crowd’ of customers, and then build a laser targeted blog or website around some of the ‘money keywords’ in that niche, you can still make good money.

The critical phrase there was ‘money keywords’. Your success or failure will hinge around your ability to choose the right keywords at the very beginning.

But the thing is, most of the affiliate marketing training you see thrown around by ‘experts’ take you the long way round.

And because of that, you can spend weeks or months going down the wrong track before you realize you’ve made a mistake and wasted your time. I know I spent a long time doing affiliate marketing wrong, before I ever learned how to do it right.

So here’s one of the biggest affiliate marketing training ‘ah-ha moments’ I could give you if you want to make money as an affiliate …

Look for a niche market where people have a burning passion, or a painful problem. What you are looking for is a starving crowd.

Then build a lazer targeted website around a small number of easy-to-rank-for ‘money keywords’. These are the keywords people are searching on when they are about to buy a product that will solve a problem or fulfil a desire.

And then critically… make sure the content you write for your site really helps people… don’t just post poorly written junk content that clogs up the internet.

Affiliate Marketing Training – How To Monetize Your Site

Next, have some kind of ‘offer’ on every page and post so you can monetize your site when people start visiting. That can be a link to an affiliate product, some Adsense ads, or a CPA offer. Whatever… doesn’t matter to start with. You can refine it later.

And once you’ve done that, build some real links to your new site so Google can find it. If you’ve chosen money keyword phrases that don’t have too much competition, you should start to rank in search results in a couple of weeks.

And then you should start making sales (or Adsense/CPA income).

If you do start to rank in Google, and make a couple of sales, you’ve hit a winner. Add some more great articles and other content, add a few more links from other sites, and you should start to see more traffic and sales. Then roll it out and expand.

Affiliate Marketing Training – What About When Things Go Wrong?

If nothing happens, it’s most likely because you chose the wrong keywords at the beginning. You should only have a few hours invested so far, so it’s easy to start again.

Remember the key points: A starving crowd, buying keywords. If you follow these two critical affiliate marketing training rules, you should have no problem making money as an affiliate with one of your first few websites.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Making Money With Clickbank

Affiliate Marketing Training

Affiliate Marketing Training – Clickbank Profits

Ok in this affiliate marketing training post, let’s talk about how to make money with Clickbank. And to do that, first of all we’re going to talk about leverage points…

And by leverage, I’m talking about getting better results from the same amount of work. Not because we’re trying to be lazy. But because were intelligent.

I don’t think it ever makes sense to look for the HARDEST way of doing anything. When you turn up at the bank to make a deposit, they don’t care how hard you had to work to make the money.

They only care that you have some money you’d like to deposit.

And one of the most powerful leverage points you have to make money with Clickbank is to look for products that have a great HOOK.

You know, it’s a shame that more affiliate marketing training courses don’t even mention this. But if you’re promoting a product without a hook, you’re going to be up against it, because there are so many ‘me-to’ products around, you’ve got no point of difference.

And without that point of difference, you’re virtually invisible.

Anyhow, a ‘hook’ is something that makes you or the products you are promoting stand out from everyone else in your niche. If you don’t have a hook, you’re just some other dude (or gal) trying to get people to your website so you can sell them stuff.

And as we’ve discussed before, it’s much better to be strategic about all of this interwebs stuff.

And by promoting a product with a hook, you are getting leverage over other people who are also trying to make money with Clickbank.  And that my friend is strategic marketing.

Promoting products that have a strong hook separates you from every other affiliate and when you do it right, helps you to attract a loyal crowd of followers.

The products you promote need a hook … so find one, or “create one”.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Finding Your Hook On Clickbank

When you break it all down, the goal of this affiliate marketing training course is to show you how to promote other people’s products (from Clickbank and elsewhere – doesn’t really matter) and get paid. But the problem with many of the products we’d love to promote from the Clickbank Marketplace is they DON’T really have a hook.

They are great products, but there’s nothing that really makes them stand out from everything else in their category. Which means while they help the people who buy them and pay us a good commission, they don’t convert all that well.

So what’s an affiliate to do?

Here’s the secret… everybody knows that a perfect product or service simply doesn’t exist. There’s always improvements to be made that could make everything that’s being sold anywhere even better.

So if you’ve followed the advice I’ve given you in some of the other posts in this affiliate marketing training, and you have found a starving crowd of people, in a niche you love, but the products you’d like to promote don’t have a unique hook…

… here’s what to do…

Simply create a hook around a weakness you’ve found in the product, and use THAT as a leverage point.

What you do is find the weakness (whatever it is), and then create some kind of exclusive BONUS that removes the weakness, and makes the product ‘perfect’ or more complete that it is already.

To make it irresistible to your customers, you then position your bonus as something your readers HAVE TO have to make the product complete. Or you can show them why it’s an enhancement for the product that complements it, and makes it much better that it was before.

By doing this, your bonus (the hook) helps to add REAL UNIQUE VALUE to the product for your customers, helps you make more money with Clickbank’s products, and sets you apart from everyone else at the same time.

Everybody wins – your customer, the product owner, and you. Yay!

Affiliate Marketing Training – Another Great Hook Option

You can also turn this idea around 180 degrees, and instead of creating a hook that fixes a real or perceived weakness in the product, you could do it by enhancing or improving something the product already does well.

You can make a highlight of something that’s already very good, and turn it into something amazing.

The most important thing is to promote and deliver your hook ‘enhancement’ in a way that’s nothing like what everybody else is doing, so you’ll stand out from the crowd and be unique.

When you can add real value like this, you become incredibly valuable to your customers, and you’ll build a loyal following of people who buy from you again and again because they like and trust you.

Affiliate Marketing Training – Your Action Plan

Start looking through the Clickbank Marketplace for products you would like to promote. These would be products that have some kind of unique hook, and help to solve the problems you know people in your niche are worried about.

If you can find one, great. Now add your own unique HOOK to that product, and you’ll be making it even better.

If you can’t find a product with a great hook, no problems. Just use what you’ve learned in this post to create one of your own. That will help you to add huge value to the product and allow you to make money with Clickbank a whole lot easier.
