Does the Circle Of Profit work for affiliate marketing?

10 replies
I've just read "the circle of profit" by Anik Singal.

If I had my own course, phase two maybe of interest to me.

However I find the whole phase one to be a bit "spammy" and doesn't really sit well with me.

I'm helping some people do some basic marketing for their online courses so I was hoping this book would be of some value to me.

Who has implemented the teachings of this book into their marketing and how has it helped/hindered?

    I'd let it go Leem if it feels that way to you. Spidey Sense is never wrong hehehe Plus even if it legitimately boosts profits, if the school of thought does so in a way you know manipulates folks too much, you can succeed but will feel uneasy, unclear, anxious and a host of fear-based energies while profiting. Not the ideal scenario buddy. Our conscience jails us when we choose dollars over love and service, plus you make boatloads more money long term moving away from spammy toward generous service.

    You have to realize that every guru and big name marketer teaching IM has his/her own "spin" on how to do marketing. They invent words, and processes, and methods that they brand their businesses with in order to explain the universal basics of IM, and at the same time,create a teaching system that is a little different from everyone elses system.


    Don't get hung up on the lingo or the exact steps. Analyze what is being taught and determine why that step or process is implemented as it is and how it contributes to the overall strategy of making money.


    Develop your own methods that work for you. You are not the same as the guru teaching you how to do something. Your results will vary. You have a different skill set, level of experience, different resources, different goals, and different levels of motivation and persistence.


    Study what successful people are doing in IM to make their money . . . then cut through the fluff and figure out how you can implement the basic principles that are behind their success. The key is your ability to put basic principles to work in a business that is right for you. Many new IMers fail because they try to follow an exact system built for someone else that they can't duplicate. They end up saying the system doesn't work and the guru is scamming people.

  • HUH?


    The Circle of Profit is ABOUT Affiliate Marketing.


    it's a fantastic book, but it was the pre-launch giveaway for one of his bigger launches in 2015, Profit Academy.


    Still a great book, if you actually impliment what it teaches, Anik's stuff is good and I have no problem recommending it

        So you think you have to put your own spin on methods taught by a man making $20m per year?


        What didn't you like about the book, exactly?

      The biggest thing I can't see having the ability to do is recommending 3 to 4 products per week.

      Really, you're promoting stuff you haven't invested in yourself. How can that be OK?

      Me...?

      I've been promoting only two courses previously that I have taken myself and wouldn't dream of telling others to take another course that I haven't done.

      Plus, if I received constant emails that promote stuff that the writer clearly hasn't invested in themselves, then I'd see them as "spammy" and delete the emails, no matter how good their story was.

      Do people still really read all those emails these days and fall for the stories told to sell stuff?

      Or am I just a rare individual who sees through all the fluff and everyone else is suckered in?

    Leem,


    Your point about affiliates promoting products they've never tried is certainly valid; but Internet marketing these days seems to be less about honesty and accuracy and more about making money at any cost.


    Affiliate marketing to many newbies (and also some seasoned marketers who have learned the game) is appealing because of its possible "hit and run" nature:
    • appeal to the greed, or curiosity, or pain of the prospect,
    • provide a quick fix or the promise of easy profit,
    • let the product seller deal with all the followup or customer issues
    • never to expose the affiliate marketer to scrutiny or customer care
    • hide behind the anonymity of the Internet
    Every affiliate has to make the choice whether to accept the responsibility of being credible and trustworthy . . . or . . . be concerned only about making referrals that end up in a sale. There are marketers at both ends of the extreme and everywhere in between.


    One of the questions a buyer should ask before a purchase is: can I trust this recommendation? Am I being given the truth or not? Will this product help me or will I lose my money (yet again)?


    Let me ask: Who would you rather buy from?
    1. The affiliate that had actual experience with and first hand knowledge of the product he was promoting . . . or . . .
    2. The affiliate that never tried a product but promoted it anyway with the canned "boilerplate" of the product creator or his own fabricated story that would never have to be verified?
    What kind of affiliate do you want to be? Both can make money online.

    i've bought Circle of Profit years ago and i really LOVE IT !

    yes, of course, nothing new under the sun, you can find these things in digitalmarketer by ryan deiss for free BUT:

    * The way it's presented is very good, simple and engaged

    * Come on, it's 7 bucks.

    7 bucks... do you really question it?

    Now Anik releases his new book, Escape, which he says it's complementary: i buy it for sure. 7 bucks, come on.

    It's good to stay update to the new copywriting techniques, used by gurus in their products.

  • There seems to be a new ideology popping up in the online world.

    In the world of offline marketing, it's simple. You can either advertise (free or paid) to get leads, or buy a mailing lists. These are the only 2 ways to get a new customer.

    What makes you think it would be any different online? The "tools" in the box?

    No matter what it's called... circle of profit, laptop trillionaire, underwear profits..... it all boils down to getting a qualified prospect to see your sales message. Just use the 2-step method of generating a lead, and following up on the lead until they buy.
