Getting started with Affiliate Marketing – No Website Needed.
Today i wanted to present an idea i have trialed in the past and it had helped me to get paid traffic and some early sales when i first started in Affiliate marketing.
I will be setting up this step by step and I am assuming that you are brand new to affiliate marketing and you are looking at promoting products from an online retailing platform such as Clickbank and use an online sales funnel such as Click Funnels.
What you will need:
Step One – Selecting your product.
First things first, Go to click bank and choose which product you will aim to promote.
Log into Clickbank and click on the marketplace.
For this example, we are looking at the highest gravity score to promote an industry. I am going to choose Flat Belly Fix from the Health and Fitness Section.
As you can see the Gravity rating is 238.26. It is the highest on Clickbank at the time of this publication.
Step 2 – Setting up the Funnel
In the click funnels platform, it is quite easy to create but I will try and make it relevant to all other platforms.
Look for the funnel or create funnel button to add funnel if you have just started using it.
Look for the simple or classic funnel builder, remember all we are trying to do is collect emails.
Once you have filled in the details you can then start to design a squeeze page. Next step.
Step 3 – The Squeeze Page
The squeeze page is just simple a page you entice people with a hook, for example, lose 5 kgs in 5 days enter your details below. The recipient enters their details and they enter your funnel to market to.
This example we are primarily looking to get their email addresses and then directing them back to the sales page of the Clickbank product for them to read more.
Go to the product page of the Clickbank product and add it to your squeeze page to gain interest. In this example
This Super Simple Morning Habit “Accidentally” Melted 84 LBS Of Fat
Clickfunnels has so many examples of squeeze pages so it is up to you how you would like it to look. In my case, I wanted to not overwhelm the reader with a lot of information and get their interest and give their information. For example below.
The hyperlink in the Submit button should be the link to your affiliate link to the Clickbank product. (See below)
Tip: I would recommend changing the URL. It doesn’t look very clean try using https://tinyurl.com/
This page can be used for future blogs you may create or other forms of marketing like google ads or Facebook ads.
Step 4 – Solo Advertisements
Go to Udimi to purchase solo ads from sellers to gain your audience.
When selecting your seller make sure to check how many orders they have had in the past, what their rating is and also the cost per lead.
I have chosen this one as an example as he has a high rating from previous purchasers and also his lead number price is below $0.50 (I tend not to go any higher than this.)
In this example, I only paid for 200 quality visitors to the site. Now I bet you’re asking why not more or why 200? I chose this number as I wanted to test this out and see what I received and also how I could measure this. As you can see I received a return of 110%
Once you have selected the number of leads you would like from the seller, move onto the next step.
Step 5 – Email Follow-ups
When subscribers start coming in and they will, you want to have a way to keep in constant contact with them and this is where you will go back to click funnels and create an email follow up automation.
If we go back to Clickbank and click on the Affiliate page link (See below), most of the Products have a great affiliate page to promote their products.
In this section, they will provide you with banners, HTML codes and email swipes. Email swipes are what you are looking for. Some affiliate products have up to 14 email swipes, that’s potentially two weeks of email marketing details.
In the Click funnels account set up your email automation for one day after they subscribe and sequential days, I usually do all email swipes to still be in the mind of the subscriber.
This is great as you are trying to grow your email marketing audience and provide them with relevant information.
Sales are usually never made on the first contact, It is the follow up that is the success of many affiliate marketers.
This method was one of the earliest methods I had tried and I believe it was quite easy to perform and also the information was already provided by the Clickbank affiliate.
The idea is quite simple but when I first tried it I did get a little confused.
It is a great way to get started in Affiliate marketing and see if it is for you.
Is this one way you got started in Affiliate Marketing?
