Welcome To The Futures Trading Coach Affiliate Training Course...

I'd like to welcome you to the Futures Trading Coach affiliate program and this training course. 

Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing the latest affiliate marketing tips and techniques along with resources you can use to maximize your affiliate earnings not only from this program, but from EVERY affiliate program you promote.

Ok, before we go any further, please turn up your speakers and listen to my short message below..

As I mentioned in the audio, one of the biggest mistakes the majority of affiliate marketers make is in not branding themselves as they build their business. 

You Should Brand Yourself As An Expert...

Most affiliate marketers focus on promoting a range of products to their website visitors and lists instead of promoting themselves as a solutions provider. 

This makes your readers look right past the person making the recommendation (you) and look instead at the product offered, which helps to brand the Product Owner in the prospect's mind instead of you as the person who referred them.

One of the most profitable long-term strategies you can implement to increase your affiliate earnings is to brand yourself as THE expert in your niche

Even if you are NOT an expert in your niche (yet), the majority of your readers won't know that, and if the information you share with them is relevant and interesting, and you come across as knowledgeable person in your market, your readers will be comfortable accepting your advice when you recommend an affiliate product to them as a solution to a problem they are experiencing.

Plus, if you encourage people to send you questions, then do the research to find the answers they are looking for (this only applies if you are in an industry where you don't need to be licensed to give answers of course) you will quickly become an expert in your niche.

The other benefit is that every question and answer you give becomes additional content for your website or blog, which will attract even more visitors to your site or blog over time. It's all good...

Once you've branded yourself as an expert, it won't matter which product you promote, the focus will be on you as the person who 'helped' your customer to solve a problem she was having - the product itself will merely be secondary to the fact that you helped her solve the problem and she will remember you the next time you make a recommendation that addresses her needs.

To see how I've done this as an affiliate in one of my markets, visit my Profiting From Your Hobby System signup page

Opt-in to the Free Mini Course you find there and follow along with the process I use to promote Sitesell's Site Build It web development product.

Feel free to model this site and the way I brand myself as you build your own brand awareness for the products you promote as an affiliate.

Your Most Important Asset Will Be Your List...

There's another important lesson you'll see when you visit the page above - your main focus as an affiliate marketer should be to BUILD BOTH PROSPECT AND CUSTOMER LISTS. 

If you've already done this, you'll know how beneficial if is to have regular contact with your customers and prospects.

If you haven't yet, come in close and listen up because this is important.

You will only graduate from being one of the bottom 90% of affiliate income earners when you get serious and start to build your own lists of prospects and customers.

By building a relationship with your readers over time, you will gain their trust and you will be taken much more seriously when you make product recommendations from time to time.

I use Aweber for all of my lists and I've found them to be very good at getting delivered and for following up.

I'll say it again - Build a list - it is critical to your online success...

One Final Thing For Today

When you start building your lists, don't bombard them with pitches for all sorts of products one after the other. And give your readers more pitch-free content in your messages than product offers. 

Your list is going to become a valuable asset if you treat your members well. Don't burn them off with constant product recommendations. It's just too expensive over the long term.

You should also develop a schedule for how you are going to take people from your free Mini Course (see how I've done that with my Profiting From Your Hobby System) to the first sale of something like an inexpensive ebook, to the sale of a higher priced course, then to an even higher priced product. 

Work out how you can offer people who purchase your high priced products additional, related products at various price points, and how you can offer people who have a resistance to buying high priced products more inexpensive options over time.

The bottom line is that eventually you should have several lists of prospects who order at different price levels.

Try to invest the most time and energy with those who spend the most money with you and earn you the highest profit. Not everyone on your list should be treated equally, so segment your list into average, good and excellent customers and promote to them accordingly.

That's it for today's lesson. I'll be back in a few days with another coaching message, so stay tuned for that.

I'd like to thank you again for joining the Futures Trading Coach Affiliate Program. 

Remember, for every person you send to our site through your affiliate link who joins our $2,997 5 day live coaching course with Sam, you'll earn a 33% commission. And I'd love to be able send you checks each and every month.

Ok, Let's Get Started...

For now, log in to your affiliate account here and grab one of the articles from the Resources area (the articles are already formatted with your affiliate link) and post it to your website or blog, and/or send out an email blast introducing the article to your readers. 

This could give you an immediate burst of sales over the next few days as people go through our email marketing and follow up system.

Another great strategy is to also add a message linking to the article on your site or blog to your autoresponder series so that everyone in your system will eventually get to read the article.

Many of the prospects you send to us will join our Free 5 Day Mini Course (and will get them 'branded' with your affiliate cookie) and we'll do the rest. So, grab an article now and get it out to your list while it's on your mind.

As I mentioned, I'll be back in a few days with another coaching message to increase your referrals and start earning you those nice commissions :-)

If there's something I can do to help you make the most of the program, please let me know by using the form.

That's all for today,

Until next time,

Warmest regards,
