What Are You Selling Your List? Deep Funnel Gets You Paid

6 replies
Just a quick question/poll.

I believe there is a heavy correlation of these two things in how much money you get from each subscriber in your list per month:


Promoting Your own Products

AND

Promoting Affiliate Products

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why I say this? The power to ad your own upsells/downsells/cross-sells
high ticket programs etc. is HUGE

I see a lot of talk of people about promoting a $50 product to their list at 100% commission.

Which is cool an all but what is that when it is compared to something like:

$10 Product> $47 Main Product w/ $27 Downsell > $97 Complimentary Upsell > $997 High Ticket program w/ $297 Downsell


I hear so many people saying their average list subscriber is around $1, well I'm not surprised when you promote an affiliate $50 product to your list.

I get it can be a lot of work to create a funnel like the one I mentioned above but damn! if it can get you x10 more money per subscriber would you do it?

Hell you could even eventually OUTSOURCE ALL THE PRODUCT CREATION once you really start rolling in the cash from your deep funnel.

Just a thought.

    The thing is: you need to figure out your prospect problems and provide them solutions. The better and bigger the problems the product solves the higher it's price - so coaching for instance could be the product that provides the most value & your highest priced product.

    I don't like to look at these things as just numbers. In almost every niche you're in you can provide better products at higher prices.

      Well I would hope if you're going to sell products to your list that you are solving some kind of major problem or issue for them...

      I agree. That's why in my funnel the products eventually lead to a $997 product.

      Well I don't know what you're doing if you're not looking at this as a numbers game.

      Yes relationship building and engagement is HUGE but there is also a huge numbers game aspect to list building and making a profit.

    A lot of people have this mentality of:

    If I get subscribers and earn the $40 commission from xxxx product, I am happy.

    I used to think like that too.

    What if you can take the same subscribers you are earning some money from and have the opportunity to earn between $100-$1000? Many successful marketers are doing this today.

    You would be surprised to know that people are willing to spend up to $1,000 or more for your product whether it is yours or another company.

      Well, yep. That's exactly what I posted as the purpose for the thread haha

      But yes having a solid back end can literally skyrocket your profits.

    I agree.

    But that doesn't - for most people, most of the time - make being a vendor a better proposition than being an affiliate, at all.

    On the contrary: if anything, that's easier for affiliates to do, because we're not limited to one vendor's products, and therefore have a far wider choice of products to promote, without our own long-term incomes being dependent on the continued success and availability of any specific, individual product at all.

    I can't help thinking that your point above may be making a rather good and valid argument in favor of "being an affiliate", even while you're apparently offering it as a purported argument in favor of "being a vendor".
