How to Profit With Affiliate Marketing
First off, all credit for this method goes to it’s original creator: Catlin Bettridge from the CF Avengers group.
Alright let’s dig right into how this makes us money! Let’s start with a 30,000 foot view.
This process has a few simple parts to it:
Build a super-simple 2 page funnel within Clickfunnels:
Page 1: The is the lead magnet and will be the actual strategy we’re going to use! (See, easy).
Page 2: The “thank you page” will deliver the instructions on how to setup this exact same system, and all the links will be your affiliate link. So if someone decides to give it a go, you get a commission.
(Luckily, we have a share funnel so this entire thing… including the VIDEOS is done for you… I will be switching these out later, but the existing ones are fine to get started).
Monitor your affiliate commissions and average out your cost per subscriber. If you’re paying $1.50 to acquire 1 subscriber then you can afford to spend up to $1.50 per lead in order to break even. Then you let this amazing little automated process generate you profit on the backend from your affiliate links and emails.
I’ll explain in further detail in a little bit.
And this is it! It’s that simple.
That’s of course over simplifying it, but I really built out this entire thing in about an hour. It’s especially easy because everything you need is provided for you.
How Do I Do Affiliate Marketing?
Alright, with the general idea out of the way let’s break down the meat and potatoes here.
Here’s the bare minimum tools needed to make this work:
- Clickfunnels + Actionetics (Our funnel + email system and also the platform we’re promoting as an affiliate!)
- Clickmagick (to track links/sales/and solo ads)
- Udimi (free account to get cheap traffic)
- Paypal (to receive affiliate commissions from Clickfunnels)
The best part about all these tools is that they have free trials (from those links there!) so you can get started for free + the cost of some clicks which will seriously be pennies on the dollar.
- Step 1: Get a Clickfunnels Free Trial (preferrably with the Etison Suite so you also get the very affiliate friendly email ability) SIDE NOTE: I will share the done-for-you emails and you can import them right into your account with 1 click.
- Step 2: Go through my funnel here – this is the exact funnel! Once you optin you’ll have full access to all the video training, the share funnel, and the emails.
I’m also going to be doing a live training on putting this all together and profiting fast, so when you optin to get all these tools and resources you’ll also get an email for this free training once we pick a date.
- Acquire leads at break even or a profit – monetize backend with email + content.
My current tests on my funnel:
Initial Split test:
Everything on my two landing pages is the exact same, except one is using a 2-step optin, in other words there is no visible optin form right away, just a button which opens a popup optin. And the other is using a standard form optin.
2-step optin vs 1 step optin (both have exit pop enabled)
