Books/online resources for affiliate IM

9 replies
Hi fellow members,

I want to know your opinion about the best book/product you've read/used and helped you out about affiliate internet marketing and how to sell popular products on internet and earn commission (selling for amazon, ebay or ...). If you want to pick one book, which one will it be? Looking for something more practical than theoretical. Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

A beginner fellow,
Dave

    I was promoting a Course for awhile that I initially bought and it was excellent in giving you all that you needed to know about Affiliate Marketing.

    It is a few years old but some of the content is outstanding.

    its called 'Affiliate Marketing without the Bull sh**t'

    You can google it.

    When I was new, the first book I ever bought was Perry Marshall's "Ultimate Guide to Google Adwords".

    Adwords has changed it's rules and you can no longer advertise affiliate links with them. But this book got me started in IM very quickly because I was dealing with PAID Traffic.

    I also learned the basics of good 'AD Copy' with this book. How to write ads using what IM ers today call 'Jedi Mind'Tricks ETC.


    I learned how to write ads that 'compel' my targeted audience to come to me like a magnet.

    Awesome. Thank you guys. Do you have any suggestion for the products that don't have affiliate links? What would you do if you want to resell a product that the seller hasn't made any affiliate link or doesn't have any affiliate marketing strategy but you believe it will sell well. Thanks.

      There are a couple of possibilities here.

      The first is proposing a licensing/royalty deal. You will sell his product, and for every unit sold, you will pay him $X. Sounds like an affiliate deal, right? If you negotiate the deal right, the difference is that you become the only "affiliate".

      To make this attractive, though, you have to have a track record, and the ability to show the owner how taking the royalty deal is better than continuing to market the product himself.

      The other is a straight up joint venture proposal. Basically, a one-to-one affiliate deal where he agrees to pay you a percentage on every sale you refer.
