case you don’t know me I’m gonna go ahead and just take a few seconds so
you’ll get to know me a little bit better I’ve been in the online marketing
business for 10 years right now my life is absolutely blessed but it wasn’t
always like that I was frustrated when I first got started I was confused I’ve
taken a lot of courses I tried to start different businesses but none worked at
all until I met my mentor who actually changed my life but by that time I was
fifty two thousand dollars in debt and at the same time I was born money from
friends and family so I can support myself now my mentor did change my life
dramatically I started doing joint ventures with him then I started doing
joint ventures with other online entrepreneurs some of them you know some
of them, you don’t know so in the last ten years I’ve have done 820 joint
ventures in three countries and two continents I’m a promotional partner for
27 companies ambassador of three and co-founder of two companies I don’t like
to talk about myself because I always think these videos are usually for you
it’s about you not about me but I feel like obligated in case you are in a
position right now where you struggling like I was over ten years ago you can
know and rest assured that always there hope there’s always a light at the end
of the tunnel and hopefully, I would have maybe helped you even if I helped one
person that would be good for me oh let’s go ahead and get started okay
before we get going into the steps about affiliate marketing it’s very important
to understand what is affiliate marketing because there is a lot of
confusion looks like so I’m gonna make it as simple as possible I want you to
go ahead and just forget all about affiliate marketing now what I like you
to think about right now is just real estate agents real estate agents they
don’t own their properties what they do is they they market the property they
show the property features benefits and then they sell the property when they
sell the property they get paid a commission and that’s it affiliate
marketing is the same thing but it happens online so people look at your
product that you are promoting just like the real estate it doesn’t matter if
it’s a physical or non-physical they click on it if they buy it you get paid
so that we got this out of the way let’s talk about why affiliate marketing I’m
not trying to convince you to do affiliate marketing the reason I am
doing this but there’s a lot of a misconception about affiliate marketing
and how you can succeed on affiliate marketing by pushing one button and
things like that it’s not like that so I’m gonna go ahead and just let you know
ahead of time, you’re not an affiliate marketer you are an entrepreneur it’s a
business it doesn’t matter if you are doing it as a part-time full-time it
doesn’t really matter it’s a business you are the CEO if your company that’s
the first thing that you want to think about affiliate marketing industry is
really one of the fastest-growing it’s on the rise right now it’s according to
Business Insider it’s a 14 a billion-dollar industry and it’s
tremendously growing more than 10 percent every single year now everybody
every company has affiliate marketing what I’m talking about even Walmart has
affiliate marketing target has one so let’s go ahead and talk about why is it
a good idea of why people are attracted to it because it’s a low start
cause you don’t need to create a product you don’t have to provide customer
support you don’t need a merchant account you can work from home or
anywhere in the world, you can create a residual income and here number seven is
the most important thing 86% of all millionaires have at least three
multiple sources of income before they made their first million I do have more
than four sources of income what I like to do is the residual right here that
residual income is the best I’m still getting paid for some things that I have
done in the past three-four years this is what’s going to create wealth for you
all right let’s go ahead and keep going skipped one here and also you can
automate the process a hundred percent then I’m gonna give you two tools later
on now if you understand it so far I want you to do me a favor go ahead and
put in the chat the word freedom that means we’re on the same page all right
the number of step – step number one I have emphasized it before the reason it
is so important because ninety-three percent of all millionaires attribute
their success to their mentor so you have to have a mentor you can read this
for yourself what I like to do is I want you to imagine and this is what happened
to me in the past, I felt like I was driving blind and this is a problem
imagine yourself you drive in your car at night without a headlight and you
don’t know what you’re going to hit your mentor is your headlights this is just a
metaphorically speaking so it’s very important to have a mentor okay let’s go
ahead and go to step number two you get a pick the right affiliate network and I
want to go through the most popular ones and some of them are kinda misunderstood
let’s go ahead and talk about the first one but let’s go ahead and talk about
Amazon Associates let me go ahead and take you and show you you can decide for
yourself I’m just gonna give you my opinion my advice and then you can
decide exactly what you want to do Amazon here’s Amazon now I’m not talking
bad about anybody but I want you to make up your own
mind that’s going to take a look at it here’s what they say and they say you
can earn up to 10% do you see what I mean if you do I put something in
the chat for me up to 10 that doesn’t mean you’re gonna make 10 percent and
here it earns 8% on furniture for example earn 5% why in the world you
want to sit there spend your wheels trying to sell somebody and most of the
stuff what is it a boot a camera or how much you’re gonna be you’re gonna be
making pennies you don’t want to be making penny if you want to make penny
penny it will always be a penny a peanuts will always be peanuts that’s
something I will never do but if you would like to do it it’s up to you I do
not recommend it at all so let me go ahead and go to the other one which is a
jvzoo if you’ve never heard about jvzoo we’ll go ahead and talk about it right
now so let’s go to jvzoo most of jvzoo is basically specialized mostly in
software some of the software are really good some of the software are not really
good I’m gonna give you a recommendation at the end what happens is that you will
go in that u-joint for free and then there are a lot of vendors inside and
then you can choose the vendor that you want to sell their product they have to
approve you some of them it’s easy to get approved some of is a little bit
hard but none of the less in jvzoo there is an approval process but it’s not that
hard so let’s go ahead and go back number 3 is Shareasale to sell that
particular product share sale for example is one of them but if you
understand that concept that I’m talking about please in the chat go ahead and
put the word freedom so I’ll know we are on the same page let’s go ahead and go
back and I’m gonna show you share sale com what they usually good at is they
sell a lot of things I’m not gonna say that they specialize in one thing or
another but there are few that
actually sell tangible products you can sell clothes instead of you having to
open Shopify store and but I don’t recommend it for beginners now network
marketing companies I want to make sure that you understand this point network
marketing is not affiliate marketing if you understand
that concept please go ahead and put freedom in the bottom because 40% of all
the joint ventures that I have done happen with people that they used to do
network marketing but then they lost their shirt why because the FTC Federal
Trade Commission caught up with them and then they closed these companies down as
a matter of fact the last one that I worked with he had like three million
dollar home they make good money don’t get me wrong but sooner or later things
are gonna catch up with them let’s talk about Commission Junction Commission
Junction I would say is one of the best we are part of all of them except Amazon
but again they do have a lot of companies products that you can sell but
you have to get approved by the way I forgot to tell you about amazon.com
especially for new affiliates is that you have to have a website they don’t
tell you that up front now the last one that we’re gonna talk about I mentioned
is a Clickbank and if you go to Clickbank right here a Clickbank is a
truly a public network it is a very good website there’s a lot of things that you
can actually sell from this now on Clickbank you can sell your own product
and you can also be an affiliate if you’re a beginner obviously you don’t
want to sit there and create a product you want to start selling someone else’s
product and making a commission so what’s good about it is that when you
get in your you can pick anything and you can sell it and this is the only one
that I actually recommend if you are new they don’t really have approval process
and then let’s say you want to sell this product right here some of them what
they do is they call it white list but this is something very simple Clickbank
is the only one that I would recommend and I’m also going to go ahead and just
leave you some information about affiliate marketing step number three
set up your business right or failed there are our pillars for success there
are four I’m gonna go over them this is why I was failing because I was putting
a whole lot of time years back and I’m talking about over ten years ago I was
putting a whole lot of time more than anybody now just wondering why is it so
difficult for me to get going so I’m gonna go ahead and tell you
the pillars that you have to have in order for you to succeed with Adam it’s
gonna be very slim that you will ever succeed what’s good about him is this
they’re all free to get started so there is no excuse not to have them
but it’s up to you whether you want to use them or not I’m gonna show you the
one that I use and my team use and when we do a joint venture I insist on doing
these it depends on the size of the business but the number one is that you
have to have a funnel system now I’m gonna go ahead and go show you the
funnel system that we use but before that I want to tell you what funnel is
just in case you don’t know funnel takes a visitor step by step through the
entire sales process now the one that we use is click funnels now you can use
whatever you want to while we use it is very simple they are the pioneer of the
funnel selling system now let me go ahead give you some tips in case you
want to join them so when you go and here what happens is this is a default
and you want to make sure to pay attention this is also you get 14 days
free I believe but when you get here you get this make sure you’re not on that
because that’s the default you’re gonna click on that because this is 297
dollars so and then after that, you can click and
I would not recommend I mean you don’t have to get this unless you feel like
you really need to and then it’s a very simple process but I just want to make
sure that you’re not leaving this on okay the second one that we want to talk
about is you must have a website and if you advertise on Facebook or Google for
example more than likely they’re gonna go ahead and shut down your account so
you must have a website we use Bluehost used to use other websites
before it’s a headache that I’m gonna go ahead and show you some tips in here so
in case you are going to this website you have the basic plus choice plus and
then pro you can start with this and you can just select it you click on Italy
you don’t have to worry about creating a domain or anything you just click on
this right here saying that you will do it later and what happened is that you
will go in here and then they’ll ask you some questions and here for example a
can decide of how many months and here’s the things that you do not need you
don’t need this one you click it off and then you click this one-off
just remember to click the stuff that you don’t need let’s go ahead and go to
the other pillar autoresponder and this is where a lot of confusion happened
90 or 80 I would say about between 85 to 95 percent and they’re not friendly
toward affiliate marketers, they will close your account right away now we use
a Convertkit the reason you use Convertkit because you can use it for
multiple websites some autoresponders they charge you per website when you
have more than one website for example or one domain what they do is they will
charge you double a Convertkit is affiliate friendly and
they are easy to use and the best thing to do they’re straightforward and what I
would encourage is to watch the demo all right this is autoresponder now the
tracking system a lot of people overlook that if you can’t track it you can’t
scale it and if you can’t scale it you can’t grow you need to track what’s
working for you and what’s not working for you now the one that we use is click
magic and I’m gonna show you here in just a little bit about click magic and
it’s easy to use they do have an extensive video training and there are
24 hour it click on that then here’s the thing it defaults under this $67 a month
you don’t need that then you will use that right now just use this one right

freedom in the bottom and this is the basic stuff about affiliate marketing if
