Brief background, I run a successful brick and mortar business with 14 employees. The business is reasonably successful (profitable + growing) but it has recently started to drain every ounce of my soul from me. I have some heavy duty personal issues tied to this business as well. (It's a family business). So I have been researching new business models and now want to get into affiliate marketing. At the very least it will help me better run marketing at my current business and I am hopeful that it can at one point both replace my income from my current job. Cautiously optimistic but totally not buying into the "It's easy to make gobs of money" hype.
I've spent the past few days reading all of the recent posts in the beginners area and I am amazed at the amount of frank, non hype-y and helpful feedback here on WF. You guys (and girls) are awesome. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
So I am just about ready to take the plunge and was hoping for some feedback with my game plan to get into AFFILIATE MARKETING
AFFILIATE MARKETING GAME PLAN:
1 choose a product from Clickbank that has decent stats (gravity, $ per sale, etc. ) also chose one that I can create or buy high quality copy for.
2 Autoresponder = GETResonse https://www.getresponse.com/
3 Squeeze Page = LeadPages https://www.leadpages.net/
4 Analytics = Click Magick https://www.clickmagick.com
Potential cost per month =
** low end $52/month
** high end / month $131
This depends on whether I sign up for the cheapest plans from GetRsponse, LeadPages, ClickMagick or go for the mid-range plans.
- Is my GAME PLAN a reasonable strategy to start?
- Am I making any major errors?
- Do you suspect the entry level membership levels at GetRsponse, LeadPages, ClickMagick offer enough functionality for a beginner?
I realize at some point I just need to jump in. But I am hoping to avoid diving into the wrong part of the pond and breaking my neck on my first go. Ouch! Hate it when that happens.
Have an awesome day, and thanks in advance for any advice / comments.
