Learn EXACTLY How Ordinary People Are Making 6-Figures With A Simple Side-Hustle They Can Do With Only A Laptop, iPhone, and Wi-Fi.

Since you clicked on my link, you see the value in what I do. So maybe you are ready to JUMP IN and open your mind to new possibilities. Believe me, I've researched nearly every method to making money online and nothing is as valuable for beginners as this one.

WHY?

Because You don't have to deal with ANY of the following:

✘ Creating Your Own Products

✘ Selling To Friends/Family

✘ Huge Start-Up Costs

✘ Inventory/Shipping

✘ Customer Service

✘ Cold calls

This is REAL and this is LEGIT. It's also the fastest and most simple way to start a highly profitable online business in your spare time.

Here's how to get started.

  1. Getting a firm grasp on what affiliate marketing is, how it works and how to be good at it is the crucial first step in the process. Befroe doing anything we would highly recommend taking Legendary Marketer's 15 Day Challenge. We highly recommend it because it will teach you exactly how to create a profitable online business even as a beginner for only $7 (before discount). The content is self-paced and spread out across a 15 days period, in addition you get a Coach to help guide you through the content. For reference, this is the class I took and it has given me the tools to start 2 SUCCESSFUL businesses.

  2. The second step is to create your website. I would recommend Hostinger because it provides best value and their use of AI within their website builder allows for easy to build yet professional looking websites. If you aren't sure where to get started with website creation I recommend this video (Hostinger specific). Within your website it is important to collect the emails of your visitors, this is most easily accomplished by offering your visitors something of value in return for their email, such as a 2-3 page PDF or a short video which provides value relating to the products you are promoting. This way, you generate free leads for future products or services you choose to promote (i.e. you don't have to generate NEW traffic to promote other products).

  3. The third step is choosing your affiliate partners. This is where you will pick the products that you will market in your niche. When I look for products to promote I tend to think about my target audience (for example if my niche is health & wellness, my target audience could be people who want to lose weight). Then, create a list of problems and needs that my target audience could potentially have. Then find products to solve their problems. Its important to note that having a built website before applying to become an affiliate may help your chances of being accepted into their affiliate programs. While you can apply to individual companies to become an affiliate, the more efficient way is to apply to sites who act as a database of affiliate programs. For example, Digistore24, ClickBank, WarriorPlus, PartnerStack and impact.com are some of the most popular sites who fill this function. I would personally recommend Digistore24 and ClickBank because of their ease of use and overall great layout. Here are the things to consider when choosing the type of affiliate programs to work with:

    Monthly Recurring Affiliate Products

    These kinds of affiliate programs allow you to generate passive income every month. They are typically software that people pay monthly through a subscription. Such as Clickfunnels, Systeme.io, and AWeber. These programs are good because you passively make a little bit of money each month instead of constantly having to find new customers/leads to make money.

    Low Ticket but High Volume

    These programs are typically physical products, such as Amazon affiliate program, which pays up to 10% commissions, or Walmart affiliate program, which pays up to 7%. These programs have wider appeal, but the commissions are generally on the lower end. For these types of products I recommend utilizing Pinterest as your main advertising medium (note that Pinterest users are 77% women, so items/products targeted towards women will do better).

    High Ticket Affiliate Products

    These programs are my favorite because they give you an opportunity to make high ticket commission meaning you don't have to sell as much volume to make good money. Most of these programs have a Value Ladder, which simply means there is a range of products/services that they would offer at the frontend, middle, and backend offers that allow you to make more money overtime as your customer continues to progress through that value ladder and purchase more from that affiliate partner.

  4. The forth step is to begin creating content (around your niche) and driving traffic to your website/affiliate links. This is most commonly done through Blog Posts, Reviews or How-Tos on the product(s) you're promoting. However, some products are most easily promoted by simply offering a little something of initial value in your advertisements such as a tip or trick on using said product. Choosing where to post your content is just as important as the creation of content itself. When it comes to marketing, social media is your best friend when it comes to driving traffic to your site. For example, if you are going the tips and tricks route, short video platforms such as TikTok are essential to use. However, if you choose to go the Review or How-To route which require longer videos/content then I would recommend using YouTube while also utilizing Social Media as a means to attract viewers to your videos. Content creation is a large topic and deserves an article of its own - click here to see my article on tips and tricks for content creation.

Please note that results are NOT guaranteed by copying my steps. This is a framework for you to use and will speed up the process with getting started, BUT you need to put in the work to grow your business.
