Apparently Ewen Chia is the number 1 affiliate in the world? Does anyone have any idea how he got that title?

    Thats rubbish!

    Ewen Chia has marketed himself as the number #1 affiliate in the world, theres a difference.

    Head to any affiliate convention and I guarantee you point in any direction and there are guys doing 100 times better than he is. The big guys are people you've never even heard of

    if you take it technically or whatever...the biggest affiliate can be Mike filsaime..or Kern...or Pagan...etc...

    Cus they have their own products but they also promote other peoples products for time to time.

    Ewen also has his own products...tho the difference might be that he "affiliates" more then the ones mentioned above.

    The biggest affiliates are under the radar. Biggest Internet marketers as well... Like Eben Pagan who finally showed up recently.

    You don't know them, I don't.

    It's like in Martial arts... Those fighters in UFC are not the biggest fighters in the world... They just like to be seen!

      Harvey,

      You're absolutely right.


      Anyone can say it but only one can be it!

      In his defense, at least Ewen makes a substantial earning from his affiliate business. Probably why he is able to make a claim that, while it may not be technically true, can be somewhat backed up with earnings and other performance factors, and yes, I do realise that the very best in affiliate marketing have this proof as well. I'm just saying Ewen's earning power is why he is able to make this claim, true or not.

      Imagine what would be said if I were to make that claim (my affiliate earnings aren't spectacular at all - enough to pay the bills and make a few impulse purchases only)! The claim would be totally unjustified. At least Ewen has some form of justification (true or not).

      Franck,

      I still bet you wouldn't want ot fight them?! lol

      I know I wouldn't. That's the point I'm making above. Ewen may not be the best or earn the most. He may only make that claim about himself just to boost his own image. Whatever the reason, you can't deny that he does alright for himself from his efforts.

      He may not be number one but he definately outranks the large majority of affiliate marketers.

      I would be interested to find out what the number one guy pulls in?! We'll proably never find out though.

          Yes Harvey I did. I totally understand what you were saying. The point I was making (maybe quite badly) was that it is after all a title created by himself.

          The part of my post immediately after I agreed with your statement might have sounded contradictory but it wasn't actually a comment to what you had written. I can see why it might have appeared that way though.

          The part after I said "Harvey, You're absolutely right" was my own opinion about the topic, not what I thought you were telling us. I don't deny that Ewen makes a great number of sales for a variety of different products, and I don't doubt that he is the top affiliate for a number of products. That's is why I said I agreed with you.

          If I was only allowed to have one affiliate for a product I was to bring out and Ewen just happened to be that one, I'd definately take that as a win for me! I genuinely do respect him and what he does.

          All I was trying to say after that was that just because someone is pulling in extraordinary sales for certain products (one in particular mentioned by yourself) it doesn't immediately qualify them as being the number one affiliate. I then went on to say that I feel he can get away with it because of the fact he is proven to perform in what he does.

          As others have said though, there are still those that are more talented in the world of affiliate marketing. In my opinion though, if no-one else is using it, why let the title go to waste. He is good at what he does. I don't think anyone can deny that can they?!

          Sorry if my previous comments were badly written and confusing as to what I was trying to say Harvey.

        Yes, I would. I'm a fighter (and body guard) before being a marketer.

        I stopped my fighting carreer at an early stage after I got married (I had a wife to take care of, and I couldn't continue my dangerous life anymore... and I must say that sometimes, "normal" life is boring... need to train). But fighting in cage in front of people isn't something I'd like to do.

          It sounds like you've led an amazing life Franck.

          I totally get what you're saying here. I personally train in MMA three times a week (not to fight, just to stay in shape) and go to the gym every morning to psyche myself up.

          That side of my life definately helps me to develop the mental strength and attitude to help me with my IM efforts. I could never imagine giving that side of my life up.

          Can I just say that I respect your decision to move into IM other than continue what you used to do. Family definately comes first.

          Take care Franck. Have a great holiday season.

    Some of the biggest online affiliates operate in mainstream verticals and they control TONS of traffic.

    It's a different game.

    It would blow your mind to see what they're earning...

    I signed up for his course "super affiliate" and it leaves a lot to be desired. Frankly, I prefer wf for more valuable info, and I get Johnny Andrews letters time to time at least they are entertaining but will probably ask for $$$ back with Ewen. His "business" in a box is selling his course to other people. I'm undecided in what I want to market at this time, but it won't be lazyman methods to quick billions. Know what I mean?

  • Kind of a blatant promotion eh Harvey?

    A lot of people controlling this much traffic and ability to drive sales have a lot of different factors behind them:

    Some of them have huge authority sites in major niches, soaking up literally a majority of the traffic.

    Some got started many, many years ago when things, well, were a ton easier. People can argue this all they want, but simply put, there was just less competition and knowledgeable marketers.

    I know a guy who built his list in the late 90s with traffic exchanges. He sits on over 3,000,000 fairly active subscribers, that he built in less than two years.

    Most "gurus" you see hear about aren't much higher than a few hundred thousand. Not that it necessarily affects how much money the list is making, but if you are smart, more is definitely better.

    When you are at this forum all day, it's very easy to get tunnel vision, to thinking that "i just build my list and I'll be happy when I make 100,000 a year" etc etc.

    There are other people who are networking, and teaming up with other forces, so that they can make $100,000 per promotion.

    In fact, $100,000 per promotion (2-5 times a week), would be a bad week for some of these guys. Many are posting more than that a day.

      Mention "David DeAngelo, the "World Famous" Pick-Up Guru" to the average man on the street and 999 out of 1,000 will say, "Huh?... Who?... What?... Get away from me, you weirdo!"

    That just marketing BS to further establish authority. The bigger guys are actually behind the scenes, shying away from the attention and the limelight.. these are the ones making a TON of money with a TON of traffic.

    The ones who crave the limelight are the ones who actually make their money by selling "achieve your dreams" products and "how to make money tutorials". That why they have to build up this image all the time to give credence to their reputations so people will buy their products.
