Six Figure Income : Affiliate Marketing

 Is It Possible To Pocket A Six Figure Income
With Affiliate Marketing

“Generally those marketers  who own websites and don’t create products or sell services of their own, find it difficult to earn big money through the internet.”

How many times have you heard this?

It is possible to sell space for advertising. You would need to be generating  significant amount of traffic to your site. You can’t expect to sell the advertising space if you don’t  attract high traffic.
To become a  six figure income earner, affiliates need to learn what to promote, and then how to promote it.  The secret is in what you offer on the front end of the website or funnel.  In traditional affiliate marketing  the commissions earned on the products are usually low.  The disadvantage is that a product creator usually has affiliates promoting these low ticket products and the higher ticket items are reserved to be sold out to the email lists that are created.

A home based business

Most marketers prefer to start earning money from home on a part time basis, while still working another job or business.  However, there are pro’s and con’s here, working form home is fine but the reality is many online entrepreneurs will not earn huge commissions.

One reason for this is that the marketer will treat the new business like a hobby while working part-time. Individuals are not fully committed to focus on starting the business the correct way.  I’ve listened to many success stories and I can tell you there are a lot of people who tried and tried and failed before they became successful.  The difference being, they did not give up.  They worked on growing themselves first. Successful marketers get educated, then find mentors to support them.

Generally, affiliate marketers are selling other people’s goods and services for a commission which normally ranges between 5 to 25 percent of the product price. The secret is to have a product that fits with your target group. Then you drive traffic to the offer and collect names and emails. Results come from converting the traffic to sales.

You should also ensure that your adverts do not look like conventional advertisements. This is because many people do not take their time to pay attention to the banners that are scattered all over. When they do visit your site they are wanting information on what you provide.  A good strategy is to have something that you can offer FREE this way you can build a good list of potential customers.

When you are researching for products as an affiliate you need to look at some of the Affiliate Platforms that sell the goods and services that are related to your niche.
See my earlier post on TOP ten affiliate programs
These websites have affiliate programs with offers that you can promote on your own website, you will find information on how you can sign up to join them.

Six Figure Income : Affiliate Marketing

The smart affiliate marketer promotes companies that pays out commissions on all of its products through the whole sales funnel. Even smarter they sign up to a company that helps them to build a team of marketers.  A company that teaches them how to get sales in the first 30 days.  A company that pays up to 90% commissions on front end sales and 50% commissions through back end sales. There are big rewards for top earners. Reach $5,000 per month in sales you qualify for a $600 lease payment for the car of your choice. The higher your monthly earnings the higher the lease payment.

Trello is being bought by Atlassian

 From Launch to $425 million in five years

The web based team collaboration and project management platform Trello is being bought by Atlassian.

According to Wikipedia Trello was originally made by Fog Creek software, the Trello project spun off from Fog Creek in 2011.

CEO of Trello Michael Pryor, confirmed the news of the acquisition on the Trello blog on January 9 this year.

Trello was launched just five years ago as and easy and fun web based collaboration software tool.  The online software platform has operated on the freemium business model, a basic service is provided free of charge, while larger business users can join the paid service.

19 Million Users

Trello has more than 19 million members who have used web based platform to solve many different challenges both personal and professional capacity.   I discovered Trello in 2014 when going through an online mentorship training course. I’ve used it to keep track of an important legal matter during 2015. I think it is a great online tool for small business and if you use VA’s or outsource tasks it’s perfect for sharing and allowing others to contribute.

Another way I’ve used Trello is to plan work and goals over a 12 week period
this follows the 12 week year program, which I discovered last year and starting using to plan and progress business goals.

I’v never heard of the Atlassian software Company until this week with the news of the sale reaching my inbox.  My quick search reveals that Atalassian is an Australian publicly traded, 5 billion productivity software company. reports that Trello has been bought in the deal valued at $425 million made up of $360 million in cash and $65 million in stock.  Atlassian collaboration software  tools include JIRA, Confluence, HipChat and BitBucket.

Inspiration from Japan

Trello takes its inspiration from the Kanban or visual project management message which traces its roots to Toyota industrial engineer Taiichi Ohno. Easy to use, Trello lets you organise projects by moving virtual post-it notes on a virtual whiteboard.

Trello is being bought by Atlassian

Top users include teams and companies like Google, Adobe and Pixar.

Trello and Atlassian both have the same stated goal to reach 100 million users.  Trello  fans just hope that the buy out doesn’t have a downside. We want Trello to continue to evolve in it’s easy and fun to use platform.

How to Choose Your Niche

Choosing your niche is dependent on several important factors.

You might want to spend several days on working through these factors when thinking about how to choose your niche. If you give these the desired consideration they will play an enormous role in building success for your business. Don’t allow choosing your niche to become a huge challenge for the business.

Follow five simple steps in thinking about what it is you are going into. There are no hard and fast rules that need to be followed for identifying the profitable niche market. It can take a great deal of time, energy and cost to identifying a suitable niche market for your business. The fact of the matter is that instead of focusing on the customers who are keen to purchase the products, it is better if you concentrate whether there is a substantial demand for your service or product. However, it should not be the sole focus for selecting a niche market. There are some important guidelines that can make a positive contribution in choosing your niche.

Five Steps on How to Choose Your Niche

Step 1 – Start by listing everything that you do. All the services or products you are providing.
Step 2 – Identify your high value goods & services. Then identify the products or service that is most frequently requested or purchased.

You will want to position yourself as a specialist, with a well defined target market and a well defined set of products or services.
Step 3 – Identify your customers or clients problems. What common problems, goals needs, wants and desires do your target niche share?

Step 4 – Identify your customers. Who most needs what you have to offer? Who do you want to serve or work with? Who have you already helped?
Step 5 – Refine your offerings. Promote the product or service that people purchase most frequently, then position your higher value offerings as upgrades and upsells, remember it is easier to sell to an existing customer than it is to find a completly new customer…

The niche must be interesting to you.

It is believed that apart from the niche being profitable, it has to be interesting to you in order to sustain it for longer period of time. The niche requires your perseverance and motivation for it to be converted into a profitable niche for the future. When you have interest , your work tasks are fun and fulfil your passion in variety of ways. On the other hand, if the niche is purely identified on a profitable basis, it will not take long for the rivals to creep in and take away your share of the market. Your dedication and commitment has to be there all the time to keep your niche safe and profitable for longer term.

The niche must have a reasonable life span.

While doing the in depth analysis for the niche market, you will observe varieties of niches considered to be “golden nuggets”. These types of niche markets have the potential to attract many businesses. However, you need to be keep in mind for how long will they be attractive? The time span of the niche market is very important. For example, if you select the football world cup event as your niche market, sales will only last for few weeks. The popularity of this niche market will soon be the thing of the past. You need to make sure that the niche that you choose will have consistent sales over a good period of time.

Choosing a niche is art as well as science and it takes a considerable amount of experience from an individual to correctly analyze the business niche’s true potential.
