Best Marketing Tools to Affiliate For?

20 replies
Hi everyone, my names Dean. I am new here. Looking forward to meeting you all.

I was wondering what the best tools I can affiliate for that would be useful to people new to things such as MLM, assorted affiliates etc.

Ideally I need something of good value/usefulness I can sell for free to build up some funds. Also things that have sub affiliates commissions would be great so I can teach duplication of that once I've been selling it a while and got all the common questions/objections covered enough to script it.

TIA.

  • Definetely hosting, and domain names. I suspect all MLM marketeers would need those.

    Thanks guys, I applied for an account with hostgator and already got one with Getresponce. I also applied for one with GoDaddy but it when via "JC" and was kinda weird and hard to understand, will have to look into it further.

    Sell for free? You mean sell something for $0, and expect to make money from it?

    Or do you mean free marketing methods?

      Excuse me, awkwardly worded. Something that has a free affiliate program. As opposed to something where it is required to be a paid member/client to qualify to sell the product at all or to get a full commission on it.

      I missed this on first reading. Thank you!

      This looks far more lucratively structured than the GR plan. I see they have a matrix system, if you'd like to send me an affiliate link to join under you I'd be happy to do so.

    You can sell different services like autoresponders, hosting, tracking, etc. Most of these companies have openings to become affiliated in one way or another. This also called "funded proposals" and can help grow primary businesses.

      Yea, these are things I will looking at, I was wondering if there were specific favorites based on conversion rates/sales tools/commissions etc.

      I think the "picks and shovels" approach is a good idea since there is such a flow of newbies or people who have been at it a while but not using tools that make it easier for them (like I done for a long time).

      It also seems an ideal way to set a foundation to lead into future things via JVs such as design, lead gen etc.

        Same. : ) Whatever "IM" path you choose ... Do something that you're passionate about/interested in. (It makes a World of difference.) Making money is great however so is doing something fulfilling.

          aomething that you're passionate about/interested in.
          I have some ideas for things that will be funny/entertaining (I will find them to be so at least) and I think they will be good things for getting an intrinsic understanding of how various things work and giving me some proof of concepts.

          Making money is great however so is doing something fulfilling.
          I agree. I look at money much more as a means than an end. It just gives more readily available options.

          I think a worthwhile thing to do is to enable those who currently have the least scope of opportunity.

          For one, it seems to have the most relative impact, a little is a lot to those who have little and the first rungs can be the hardest.

          Secondly, obviously those with the lowest economic value are going tend to fall into the blind spot of many business models. To paraphrase George Carlin "If there was money to be made solving homelessness they'd solve it tomorrow". Its seems best to work on important things less people are inclined to work on.

          Thirdly, "trickle down economics" appears to be a load of bollox, we all know fires burn from the bottom upwards.

    Something that I cannot see anyone else has mentioned is an affiliate link cloaker.


    This will massively increase your sales - because people do not like to click on a link that is obviously an affiliate link.


    If you have a Wordpress site I would recommend Pretty Link Lite - which is free.


    Otherwise you can Google "Free Affiliate Link Cloaker" or use Bitly.


    Hope this helps.

    There are a lot of bloggers who blog about blogging. They all release "income reports" ...

    They make 80%-90% of their income on:

    Being an aff for: Hosting, autoresponders, marketing softwares

    Selling: How to be a blogger/beginner marketer courses

    It's extremely predictable.
