This webpage describes the affiliate marketing strategy that millions of people are using online to make money! If you want to get started making money online then follow the steps described below. Also contact me to if you need help setting up any of this.
I understand that it can be pretty confusing but I hope to answer a lot of questions with this page. Any other questions can be answered when you contact me. Let’s begin!
Do This FIRST
Before you get started there are a couple of services you are going to need.
- Sign up for a free trial at ClickFunnels by clicking here
- Sign up for a free trial at AWeber by clicking here
Once you have completed those steps there are three things you have to do before you can start making money:
- Create a landing page with ClickFunnels (I can help you do this)
- Create a 7 day auto responder with AWeber
If you need help with any of the above steps contact me directly and I will help you get started.
Once you have done all of that you are now ready to make sales! All you need to do is send 100% tier 1 clicks to your landing page, and the money will start rolling in! By the way, 100% tier 1 clicks are any clicks from the US, CA, NZ, AU, or GB. Of course you want clicks from people who are interested in your product. If you are promoting business related products, I can provide them for you here.
The diagram below shows the process that your affiliate sales will use:
You will purchase solo ads ONLY from 100% T1 countries and send them to your landing page. Your landing page will capture their email address so you can market to them in the future. This allows you multiple chances to capitalize on the single click by marketing to them more than once. I provide 100% T1 solo ads, click here to check them out.
Once they enter their email address they will be forwarded on to your affiliate offer. If they decide to buy the offer, you will get your commission! If they do not purchase the product, your auto responder email campaign will contact them over the next couple of days and remind them to come back and purchase your affiliate offer!
Once they enter their email address on your landing page it will be added in your AWeber account and the auto responder email campaign will begin shortly after. This auto responder is designed to have them look over your affiliate offer once again.
The auto responder is a 7 day campaign that will help increase your conversions once people enter their email address on your opt-in page.

What is Our Primary Goal?
Obviously the primary goal of affiliate marketing is to make commissions. It is also very important that you provide high amounts of value to your clients and customers. This page is going to help you understand the basic requirements to get started making money online with affiliate marketing!
What is a Funnel?
When it comes to online marketing, a funnel is a process that you put potential buying customers through. Just like when you’re placing oil in your car, you use a funnel to make sure the oil makes its way into the engine. You want the oil to first go through the funnel, and eventually end up inside of the engine.
A marketing funnel uses the same idea. Instead of using a paper funnel however, you use a website. And instead of putting oil through the funnel, you send clicks (people) through the funnel.
Thankfully, almost all of the products you will be promoting already have created their funnel, and you only need send interested people directly to their funnel to make money.
What is a landing page?
A landing page is a stand-alone webpage that is design to get the user to do only ONE thing. Quite often a landing page will offer a free report or an eBook if the visitor will enter their email address.
You are going to utilize a landing page to collect email addresses and then forward the user on to an affiliate offer.
Why I MUST Collect Emails?
There is only one reason why you want to collect email addresses, and that is because when you have built a large collection of email addresses you can market to them directly instead of only being able to market your affiliate offer to them once.
Think of it like this, on average, a 100% T1 click cost about $1.00. If you send the click directly to your affiliate offer without getting their email address, they are gone to you forever.
If you instead decide to send that $1.00 click to your own landing page, collect their email and then forward them on to the affiliate landing page, you can now follow up with them via email and get more chances for that $1.00 click to turn into a purchase.
Even if they buy the product you are promoting, you can then promote other products to them. It’s MUCH more efficient than simply buying a single click and sending it off to the affiliate offer and never utilizing that click again.
Why Do I need 100% Tier 1 Traffic?
Because it is the highest quality you can get! If you are looking for a good conversion rate, then you don’t want anything BUT 100% T1 traffic. They buy your offers, it really is that simple.
