Affiliate Marketers: How to Bypass an Opt In Page

Make money online with Videos

Video Player ImageIt’s been awhile since I’ve created a video.  So here’s one that’s specifically designed to help increase your affiliate commissions.

An annoying thing about being an affiliate marketer is being forced to send traffic to opt-in page.  In my opinion, this often decreases the money you can make from a product.

Here are a few reasons why:

  1. You’ve worked hard to presell the product not the opt-in page.
  2. You’ve already sent people to the opt-in page
  3. You know the product owner will steal your commissions by promoting other affiliate offers in their follow-up sequence (Yes…some do that!)
  4. You know the opt-in page doesn’t convert.

It really doesn’t matter why you want to avoid an opt-in page.  Sometimes it makes business sense to send prospects directly to the sales page.

The good news is you can easily do this with a free tool I found at the Fast Blog Finder site.

I’ve been writing and editing for six (very long) months.

How to Earn Full-Time Internet Income… Even if you Have a Full-Time Job

I want to talk about something that’s always annoyed me.  In fact, sometimes it really pisses me off.

Working from Home- Full-Time IncomeWhenever I meet someone and talk about my Internet business, I often get the “It must be nice to work at home and lounge around” comment.  Recently I even had a person say that there is NO way I could replicate my success if I was forced to work a full-time job and earn an income from the internet at the same time.

Holy sh*t, this comment angered me!

I actually had someone tell me that a successful online business is NOT possible for anyone who works full-time.

So today I’m going to throw down the gauntlet!

This post contains the secrets to making a full-time income from the internet even if you have that regular 9 to 5 job.  As I wrote it, I imagined what it would be like if I only had ten to twenty hours a week to focus on my Internet business.  The result is I’ve included only the absolute critical steps to your success.  I’ve eliminated all the crap and left you with the bare essentials for creating a full-time income.

Picking Your Ponies: How to Choose Your Affiliate Marketing Programs

Picking your Ponies in Affilate Marketing
As someone that’s been an affiliate marketer for a few years now, I can tell you that the number of people trying their hand at affiliate marketing has literally skyrocketed. A lot of people are out of work and a lot of others have gotten fed up with working their tails off, answering to someone else and collecting a meager paycheck that doesn’t even cover all the bills. They’re turning to affiliate marketing in hopes of starting a new career.

It’s important to realize that calling yourself an affiliate marketer doesn’t necessarily mean you’re successful at it. Hollywood and New York are full of “actors” and “musicians” that are actually waiters and bus boys, if you get my drift. Even so, if you’re willing to take the time to learn what you’re doing and you’re willing to work hard, it really is possible to become a successful affiliate marketer.

My $3,911.32 Affiliate Income Day: 8 Lessons YOU Can Learn

At first, it was a pretty typical weekend.  I spent all of Saturday skiing and took a day off from “work”…never turning on my computer.  Then on Sunday I woke up and drove over to my friend’s house for a few hours of Texas Hold Em.

While my buddies got the table ready, I remembered the email promotion I sent that morning to my affiliate marketing list.  So I decided to quickly log into my account and see how it did.

My Best Affiliate Marketing Day...EverWhen I saw the results, I thought somebody in Clickbank made a HUGE mistake.  My earnings were at $1,300…more than I’ve ever made in a single day….and this was at 12 in the afternoon.

Seriously, I felt one of those people who check their ATM balance and discover the bank has accidentally deposited $55,000 into their account.  For a few seconds I thought I was on a bad episode of Punk’d.

But all this money really did come from a promotion I did for a new product.  It wasn’t a trick.  I was actually making a lot of money from an email that took me five minutes to write.

It kept getting better throughout the day.  Every half hour I would check my iPhone and see how much I earned…giggling like a little schoolgirl every time I looked at Clickbank.  By the end of the day, I earned a total of $3,911.32!

Okay, I didn’t tell this story to brag.  And I’m not trying to *sell* you on any particular program or website.  All I want you to do is watch this video where I detail eight lessons I learned from my best day as an affiliate marketer.
