How to be a Profitable Affiliate Marketer in 2020
Are you struggling to make money online?
Or are you a new affiliate just looking to get into this lucrative niche?
Well, if you are like me, then you are finding it extremely difficult to bring in clicks and leads that are anywhere near profitable...
You see, a few years ago, it was possible to go out and buy warm clicks for as little as $0.10 through programs such as google or bing and link them directly to whatever offer you decided to promote. Leads were cheap and sales were easy to come by
You see, I used to market this way…
But day by day, month by month, I began to see my profits decrease and my cost per sale skyrocket.
Offers that once netted me thousands of dollars began to dry up and I was forced to quit many of them as I thought there was no more money to be had…
I knew it was time for a change…
And this is what caused me to completely re-invent the way that I did marketing.
I began using an entirely different method to sell my products and I began to see crazy high conversion rates and incredible profit numbers once again.
I use a simple four step method called a funnel
Step 1: provide value
Step 2: Collect Emails
Step 3: Link to Offer
Step 4: Use emails to build lists and continue to convert on the back end.
The most important thing to remember when you are selling a digital product is simply that the best way to sell is to find a way to fix a problem.
The best way to do this is to provide a little bit of free content up front.
That could come in the form of a youtube video, a blog article, an ebook, or a free piece of content that will help the prospective customer to better use the product that you are trying to sell them.
This does not have to be anything extravagant.
As a matter of fact, making it extravagant will more than likely take the customers interest away from what you are selling.
That is why I recommend writing an article or recording a small course telling them directly how to use the item that you want them to purchase. Or you can create a small offer that helps them to use the product more efficiently.
Now luckily for you, nearly every good affiliate program provides you with simple free offer that can help you to get good leads. Especially those found on clickbank, and other similar affiliate offer websites.
Now here is the important part that sets our method apart from all of the lower level competition.
Having permission to send a customer emails opens the door to what is essentially free hot traffic for years to come.
And how are you to collect these emails?
Well, there are a variety of different funnel builders and email collection sites out there, but the one that we recommend, and the one in which we are willing to give you our free email collection funnel is called click funnels
Clickfunnels allows you to automate the funneling process as it allows you to build webpages, collect peoples information, and send automated messages to your prospective customers.
It is what I use and it is the most advanced funnel builder online.
Along with this, I want to give you my highest converting collection funnel (gets around 60% conversions)
I am also going to give you a free 14 day trial of click funnels, cancel any time.
You can get the funnel here: funnel

(Please not that in order to receive the email, you need to first have a ClickFunnels account)

Alright, now that you have collected their email, it is time to send them to either a custom landing page, or the landing page provided by your affiliate network.
I personally use a ClickFunnels thank you page, which allows me to collect more information about the clickthrough rate and more analytics on my customers.
This step is obviously essential, but also the easiest, so there is no need for me to explain it any more.
All you need to do is to edit the thank you page that can be found in the funnel that I gave you above.
This step is the one that is going to allow you to skyrocket your profits (in some cases, my profit has increased by up to 5-6 times, although, please note this is profit, not net sales)
You need to use the emails that you have collected to retarget your intended customers.
I generally do this in three levels.
In the first few days, I send out a series of emails beginning with one that straightforwardly sells the same program or product that I was selling in the first offer.
The rest of this series of emails is based around explaining the product and giving a series of short, content filled informational emails about the product along with more free valuable thoughts that further convince the prospective customer of its authenticity.
Now, once you have tried to sell the first offer for a couple of weeks, and this is the crazy profitable part, you can find other offers within the same niche and use this email list to sell other products, completely free of advertising charge, which leads to amazing profit margins.
All you have to do is pay the relatively small charges for clickfunnels or whatever other software you choose to use.
Trust me, this worked for me, and if executed correctly it will work for you
