Affiliate Marketing Products and Funded Sponsoring Proposals
August 24, 2008 10:31 PM
Affiliate marketing products are your best friend in a network marketing
business when you are using the attraction marketing with funded
sponsored proposal approach to build your business.
Because when used properly, you can create an income stream that will
completely fund all of your business activities for your primary
network marketing opportunity.
What Are Affiliate Marketing Products?
Affiliate marketing products are any product, service or program in which the marketing
company offers to pay an affiliate commission if you refer a customer who purchases the product.
As an example, suppose I create an e-book entitled "How I Build a Six-Figure Income in Network
Marketing While Staying at My Day Job."
I begin to sell my e-book online for $37. However,
I offer to pay an affiliate commission of $20 to anyone referring a customer to me who purchases
You sign up for my affiliate marketing program and receive a special link that
tracks your referrals. You send an email out to your entire downline recommending that they purchase
As a result of your email, 5 distributors on your network marketing team purchase my
book, each paying $37. I pay you $100 for the recommendation, and I keep the remaining $85 for
This is how affiliate marketing products work.
Fund Your Primary Network Marketing Business with Affiliate Products
So how do affiliate products allow you to fund your primary network marketing business?
Do you have to promote them to your organization in order to make money?
No you do not.
In fact, you can literally make money every month from affiliate marketing products without
EVER promoting them to your network marketing organization, if you simply learn how to incorporate
them into your overall marketing approach and strategy.
How do you incorporate affiliate
products in your approach?
Step One: Include links to affiliate marketing products
in your content pages
Your content pages are the web pages you create to "attract"
your ideal prospect to you.
Not every prospect who visits your
pages will be interested in learning more about you. However, if you add affiliate
links to an offer that they ARE interested in, you can earn an affiliate commission
even though they never do business with you.
Step Two: Include links
to affiliate marketing products on your thank you pages
A thank you
page is a web page that your prospect sees after signing up on your landing page.
Your landing page is the page where you offer the prospect something of value in exchange
for the prospect's name and email address so you can follow up with him or her.
The purpose of the thank you page is to acknowledge the prospect for signing up for
whatever offer you presented on your landing page. However you can also provide affiliate
links on this page to create an additional profit stream for you.
Step Three: Include links to affiliate marketing products in your
follow up emails
If you have a series of follow up
emails designed to build relationships with your prospects you should include
links to affiliate products that your prospect will find of value.
Step Four: Participate in affiliate marketing programs where the
company pays you for the life of the customer not just a one time sale.
For example, with the Magnetic Sponsoring program, you get paid on ANY
product a customer you referred purchases, not just the initial product. This allows
you to earn additional income in the form of back end sales promoted by the owner,
in this case Mike Dillard, of that affiliate product.
Affiliate Payout Schedules
Affiliate marketing products have different pay schedules.
The most common pay out
for affiliate products is twice a month.
Some pay out only once a month.
Still others pay as soon as the initial sale is made.
It is important to know
when the payout takes place so you will know when to expect your money.
Fund Your Network Marketing Business Expenses with Affiliate Marketing Commissions
While you can certainly use these affiliate commissions for whatever you want, I recommend that you use
them to support your business building efforts.
There are certain expenses related to participating
in a network marketing business. You can use your affiliate commissions to fund your business while you
continue to recruit and build teams.
Eventually your primary network marketing business will be
funded by the residuals from your customers and team's customers and the affiliate marketing commissions
will be extra income for you.
