How to Write Articles to Profit From Affiliate Programs Instantly


This is a quick guide on how you can earn a full time income with affiliate programs without even having a website. This is so simple, its stupid, yet so many affiliates keep failing.

The biggest reason I failed when I first started online was because I complicated things. I tried to create huge websites filled with content, and it just did'nt work because I lost my motivation.

With this guide, all you have to do is create a free autoresponder series, then advertise it directly with ezines and other simple methods that I will show you.

Select 3 affiliate programs

To make this work and not be a one hit wonder, you will need to select THREE affiliate programs to join. The criteria to select these programs is a little different than going out and selecting the affiliate with the largest commission although this does play a role.

Of course, all the affiliate programs you promote will have to revolve around the same subject. For instance, say your first affiliate program is an ebook on Mini Sites, then your second affiliate program that you sell could be a "members only" site based on Mini Sites and your third affiliate program could be a service where someone creates a network of Mini sites for your customers.

I will talk about this later and how the pricing is critical.

The first affiliate program you promote will want to be one that pays a larger than normal commission on the first sale. Do not accept anything less than 40% commission for your first affiliate program. The reason for this is because we want to make a profit on the first affiliate program and by selling any product that does not make you at least $ 20 per sale you will not profit straight away. The main aim of this is to really build up your opt-in mailing list.

If you break even, do not be discouraged. Breaking even is an amazing result, and if you have built your list up, then you will be profiting for years to come.

So for your first affiliate program, choose a product that sells for around $ 40 to $ 50 and where you still get at least 40% of the total profits.

Your second affiliate program you join will be in the category of what we call "Residual Income".

This is an affiliate program that pays you every month someone stays signed up for their product or service. For example, if you were to promote a web hosting company, and they charged $ 25 a month, you would get around $ 10 a month for as long as that person stays signed up for the web hosting. This is one of the best ways of earning a secure pay check every month.

These are great programs to promote because all they require is a little hard work up front and you're set for months, even years. That's why I recommend promoting this type of program when you have a large list of names to email to.

Of course you will still be promoting your free course to other people but this is a way to make back end sales from your current list. Do not think if you've advertised to these people once, that's all they are good for.

Now your third affiliate program will also be a program that you will promote to your current subscriber list. This program should pay you a large sum of money. Although this type of program will have a lower conversion rate, you should be making $ 80 to $ 150 commission per sale.

Now you must promote your three affiliate programs successfully – For a step-by-step guide, visit the website below.
