Back out again with another article and the like, looks kind of crazy right now, but don’t mind that we’re in the Sunnyside Florida right now and I wanted to go Ahead and shoot a article on what I wish I knew before I started a Philly of marketing to basically maybe help you avoid some pitfalls and some embarrassment and losing some money and all that extra stressful bullcrap that you run into when you first start.
I’r affiliate marketing and just business in general, but before we get into the good stuff, if this is your first time coming across my blog, my name is Eric Ellis jr, I’m a certain digital entrepreneur and I teach people how to crush it online right. So we like that to have stuff hit that subscribe, button hit, that notifications build and join the squad right, wolves, nation and, if you guys, are already an affiliate, marketing and you’re looking for a mentor, get access to my inner circle by clicking the first link in The description now, let’s get into the business now when I first got into affiliate marketing.
The first thing that actually drew me to the business model is that you didn’t need your own products right. You didn’t need to deal with customer system that, like e-commerce, you simply just promote people’s products. You get paid a commission right now when I first started ad the improper guidance right, I was doing it all wrong. What I used to do was I started off with in the biz op niche. What that means is business opportunities, promoting make money online opportunities and the way that I should do it right is.
I was trading my time for money right. So the first thing that I wish I knew is that you don’t want to trade your time for money right. You want to learn about automation, sales, funnels email, marketing, driving traffic on autopilot right, the wrong way to do it is when I first started, and it was so painful right. I was getting rejected, rejected rejected because I was like unboxing people and the DMS right sliding in the DM.
I was texting people in my contact and it was so embarrassing facing on that rejection and people saying what you’re doing is a scam and all those extra bullshit right. If I would have known about automation ahead of time, my life would be so much easier because I wouldn’t have to deal with the construction criticism. I would have to deal with people saying what I’m promoting it’s legitimate and all the negativity of those people who really don’t want to elevate in life right.
So that’s one thing that I highly recommend now another thing that I wish I knew what’s harder to use. My phone right now I’m just kidding, but is that believe it or not? You need a lot more traffic than you think and what I mean is: is you need people to see your offer? If people don’t see your offer, you’re not going to go ahead and get sales right now. There’s this misconception a whole bunch of people are each other.
They said. Look, I’m not getting results within my business. Well, ok, cool! How many people have seen your sales presentation? They’re, like yeah, I showed a few people. I showed a few people guys the average a really good sales presentation converts anywhere from 1 to 3 percent. Alright, let’s break that down 1 to 3 percent of a hundred clicks is 1 to 3 cells. That’s not even talking about the front end of your your funnel meaning, if you put like a landing page and I’m not trying to speak jargon if you’re, if you’re a complete beginner.
But basically, what I’m saying is you need a shitload of visitors to actually generate a realistic income right now. Here’s the thing if the product that you’re selling is a thirty thirty dollar Commission right. If it’s a thirty dollar Commission and you’re getting one cell per day right that 100 clicks, one percent of that is literally thirty dollars per day. Now, let’s be honest here, an extra nine hundred dollars per month would do well for people, but it’s not going to go out and get you rich.
It’s not going to be able to allow you to quit your job right. It’s not going to be able to do that so realistically, you need anywhere from three the 500 clicks per day to generate a realistic income right. So I didn’t know that right and that’s basically something that you want to take them to think in a consideration when you get an affiliate marketing, you you’re going to need traffic right now.
Another thing is before or when I got into affiliate marketing what I wish. I knew is you’re going to lose money right and I was so afraid to do paid ads, because every time I did paid advertisement right, my my ads just, would it make it right out? I wouldn’t succeed, so I was like dang. This is I’m wasting money and guys it takes money to make money right. You don’t learn something unless you fell over and over again, so get that out of your head you’re going to fail, you’re going to lose money right.
It comes with the territory, but eventually you will succeed right. It only takes one successful ad to make you a bunch of money right, because that ads going to make you commissions, you reinvest that those commissions into that same ad and so on and so forth. Right now, another thing that I wish I knew before getting into affiliate marketing is with paid advertisement. You need to split test. You need to optimize right, I used to think it takes one lucky and right I’ll put one ad up and then I’m going to go ahead and be rich.
That is not how it works. You need to put up multiple ads right. You need a split test. I don’t know what the heck split testing even meant right. You need to split test everything right, not even just your ads, but even your sales process right, so you need to always be split, testing and optimizing and improving, because that’s the only way that you’re going to be profitable right is if you’re, testing, testing testing and That’s why a lot of people fell because they don’t test right.
Another thing that I wish I knew before getting into affiliate marketing is that you should always be promoting something with backing up sales now. What does that mean if your initial product, that you’re promoting is a $ 30 cell right after a person purchases that product there should be an additional offer and after they purchased that product there should be another additional? You should always be upselling right.
You know they say in sales. Abc always be closing, I believe in affiliate marketing or just digital marketing. There should always be additional upsell now. Why is that important right? What is enough, so an upsell is simply when somebody makes a purchase and after they purchase up their denial of product they’re offered an additional product that is congruent with that offer. That’s going to from the advertisement perspective, it’s going to increase your overall earnings per customer.
Now, why is that person or excuse me? Why is that important if I’m selling something for only $ 30 or if I’m selling something with an initial sell point at $ 30, but then it starts upselling people right. It’s going to increase my overall earnings per customer. My average earning four customers called LTV lifetime value, so if I’m selling something for $ 30 and something with all its upsells, the average I might be getting for this may be literally $ 90 right.
It’s going to increase what I’m earning for a customer which is important for paid advertisement if you’re selling a product that sells really well, it converts really well, but there’s no upsells right. How are you going to go to make money with your paid advertise? You have to really really really get good at paid advertisement if you’re just getting into it for their marketing. That’s most likely, not the case, so it gives you more room for error.
The more you’re going to make per customer right and another thing that we’re signing before getting into affiliate marketing is stop being so fucking cheap right, I was so super cheap. I don’t want to invest into myself and if I could have done this all over again, I would have invested in the paid courses much sooner right, meaning when you invest them to yourself. You’re literally buying this person’s mistake, so that what do I mean by that somebody who has already been in the game for a long period of time, they’re going to, let me show you look, this is how you do it correctly.
This is what you need to avoid. I’ve made all this money in this industry right instead of going through your own collinear, go through mine right, it’s like having a basketball coach. Somebody says you know what I’ve been playing basketball for 10 years. This is the right way to do it right, avoid all those mistakes that Britt used to my last thing right. One thing that I wish I knew before getting into affiliate marketing is that you need a mentor now, it’s not guaranteed, because not everybody has that a mentor.
Obviously, some people, the the the people who started out, never had mentorship, but that’s doing it today guys what happens is when you don’t have mentorship it’s going to go ahead and take you way long to succeed. Time is money, especially within this business. If you could literally invest $ 500 right, hypothetic invest $ 500, but that gives you the skillset and the mindset to save you, thousands of dollars in paid advertisement of mistakes and to expedite your success process to where you’re going to be successful.
Much quicker right. Wouldn’t it be a benefit for you to where, if you’re, making five thousand ten thousand twenty thousand dollars per month, what does it work that initial investment, if it got you to that dream income level, much quicker I’d, say so right.
