In this video, we go over how to make money with affiliate marketing even if you are broke. This is exactly what we are going to go over:

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Let’s start off with understanding what affiliate marketing is.

Before I get into that, lets talk about the biggest companies in the world right now:

  • Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles
  • Facebook, the largest media company, creates no content
  • Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, owns no inventory
  • Airbnb, the largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate

So what do all of these multi-billion dollar companies have in common?

They serve as links that CONNECT people to products that THEY ALREADY DESIRE. 

In essence, this is the idea of AFFILIATE MARKETING. It’s when you have a certain group of people that have a problem. And you find an already existing product or service and broker the deal.

How To Succeed

Most people that get into affiliate marketing fail miserably.

That is because the problem with most amateur entrepreneurs is that they just direct link to their offers instead on first FOCUSING on ADDING VALUE to people’s lives.

There is nothing differentiating them from the high competition that exists in affiliate marketing.

So how did I end up succeeding while others are struggling?

I created my very on YOU INC.

Its a business model that is based around my PERSONALITY.

Why did I do that?

Because even though people can copy my offers, my ads, and my sales products. What they cannot copy is my personality.

You see, I’m not the only one that recommends Shopify.

And I’m not the only one that recommends Clickfunnels.

But why do people buy from me as opposed to other people?

That’s because I have put in the time in building my blog and my YouTube Channel to be based on an “attractive character” with a personality that my audience can relate to. 

Building the Attractive Character

What ultimately happens when you build an attractive character is you begin to attract people to your products and offers instead of trying to convince them. 

Now there are FOUR WAYS that you could BUILD your Attractive Character.

1) The Leader

What you could start tying into your affiliate promotions is the attractive character known as The LEADER.

A leader in terms of affiliate marketing is someone who is taking a group of people or individuals towards their goal.

Perhaps, the leaders has already accomplished that goal and all they’re doing now is providing the foundation for the people that haven’t gotten the results yet.

This is perfect if you are in the health, wealth, love or happiness space if you have already gotten the results that people want.

People will look at you as the leader who can help them get towards what they actually want out of life.

2) The Adventurer

The second type of Attractive Character is known as The ADVENTURER.

Now this is someone that’s on the journey to seek the ultimate truth of whatever area of expertise they want to learn.

I probably associate with the adventurer type of the attractive character the most.

Ever since I’ve read the Four Hour Work WeekI made it my mission to go out there and seek the ultimate truth of how to obtain financial freedom.

I wanted to learn the exact formula on how to obtain financial freedom the fastest. And I wanted to share what I learned with you guys. 

I seriously embraced this principle, with no questions asked.

When the Four Hour Work Week said to move to Asia, I literally moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand.

When it said to start outsourcing the tasks in your business, I ended up hiring a team of 8 people from the Philippines.

Because at the end of the day, you don’t get paid for the theories that read in a book. You get paid for the ACTION that you take.

3) The Reporter

Now the third way to build your Attractive Character is known as The REPORTER.

This is perfect for people who don’t really have any results yet.

The best way that I could describe the reporter is with Oprah Winfrey. 

One of the biggest reason why she became successful was because she interviewed all the top people in the industry.

She was seeking the truth and the best part was, she was interviewing the people who already had the results.

She became successful by her association with these people.

Which can be described as the “Oprah-effect.”

Also known as becoming successful because of your association.

So regardless of what niche you’re in, whether in health, wealth, love, or happiness..

If you don’t have the results yet..

Instead of you being the hero of the story, make other people the hero of the story and introduce them to your audience in which you could recommend the affiliate products that you have.

4) The Reluctant Hero

The last way that you can be the Attractive Character is to be The RELUCTANT HERO.

Now this is is someone that accidentally stumbled on the truth and figured out a way on how to become successful. And they are willing to overcome their shyness to share the truth to the world.

When I first began to learn how to make money online, I hated the fact that I didn’t really know the people that were teaching me. I felt that it was a bunch of people that were just hiding behind their laptop screens trying to sell me on the “secrets of success”.

The only problem with these people is that I didn’t even know if they were real or fake.

That is why when I started gaining some success, I knew that I had to overcome my camera shyness if I was going to help people that struggled the same way I struggled.

I didn’t want to become YouTube famous or be noticed. But I felt like me creating content and putting myself out there was the only way for people to learn the right way.

That is why on my channel and blog, I share personal stories, flaws, and the mistakes that I have made.

After building trust with my audience through those things, that is when I start recommending products that I have used.

Where Do You Find Products?

This is how my affiliate marketing business works.

  1. I buy a product/service
  2. I enjoy it so much that I feel like I have to share it

Everyday, I get questions on what products I’ve used, softwares that I am a customer of, and books that I have read. So naturally, I would recommend these products.

Here is how it has worked in the past couple of months.

Whenever I recommend a book or service or anything like a camera, I go to Amazon Associates. Amazon Associates is Amazon’s affiliate program which is a platform where you can actually recommend anything from Amazon.com.

I use it for recommending any products I have bought from amazon. If anyone goes through my link and doesn’t even buy the product I recommended, I still get credited part of the sale as commission as long as it was within 24 hours of them going through my link.

Now the second thing that you want to do is you go to maxbounty.

This has a bunch of CPA offers or Click Per Actions where you can get paid for recommending people to trials of products.

I go over exactly how I use it in this video right here.

The next thing you can do, which is what I do the most, is to become a part of the affiliate program of any product that you have used in the pass.

So for Shopify and Clickfunnels, all I did was google Shopify+affiliate program or Clickfunnels+affiliate program.

And then I created free accounts with their affiliate network.

From their, those companies now pay me whenever my audience goes through my personal link.

Affiliate marketing isn’t hard guys. All you have to do is figure out what products you are already using and recommend those.

What software do you use?

What products do you use?

And what products have you bought online and what have you spent money on in the past couple of days?

Odds are. . they have an affiliate program.

And it’s cool because most of these affiliate programs are free, and it’s free to start.

How Do You Send Targeted Traffic?

The best way is to FIND THE MAIN PROBLEM and then to create content around that problem and point the visitors to the SOLUTION (the affiliate product).

So for example if you have a product on clickbank that you want to promote and it helps women lose weight.

The best way to get targeted traffic is to FIND OUT what are the things that women wanting to lose weight are searching for.

For example, you can go over to YouTube search and type in “How to Lose Weight” and see all of the related searches that come up.

The next thing that you should do is do a little bit of competitor analysis by watching the top videos and see what works and what doesn’t.

Find the ones with the most view and all you gotta do is come in and just make a video with MORE VALUE for the visitor that’s viewing.

How to Increase Your Bottom Line?

The best way to do this is by building an EMAIL LIST.

Now how I do it is I set this up with clickfunnels and have it connected to my GetResponse email autoresponder.

So if you look at my blog site, what you’ll find out is that at the end of every single post, I offer a free eBook on how to 3x your income in half the amount of time

I give it away for free in exchange for a visitor’s email address.

Now that I have their email addresses, I can now communicate with them FOREVER!

So if YouTube or Facebook goes down, my email address is mine to own.

It’s my traffic that can never be taken away from me.

Now that they got into my Getresponse autoresponder, every single day they get an email with my blog posts filled with value for them to take action. .

Teaching people how to use the products and the software that I have used.

So at the end of the day, they will know how to use them before they even make their purchase.

So what’s the point of this?

This increases my chances of getting a commission because now my audience has more of an idea of how to use the software.

The more you help educate your audience, the more likely they are going to use the product that you are using.

So guys hopefully that helps!
