Hi guys, Kayol hope here! In this video I plan to make it a series if it takes off. What it is is that instead of doing a review or an interview, this video is kind of behind the scenes look at the process that I personally go through, usually each month in order to do a promotion for affiliate products so as a internet marketer doing affiliate marketing this is the process that I follow and I’ve been on both sides of it as both the affiliate marketer as well as from the vendor side doing product launches myself.
So, I kind of got a taste for for both and can see from both sides as far as the perspective goes for that and so the problem with starting out is that you haven’t built up credibility and the it’s hard for most vendors to trust new affiliate marketers. Typically a new affiliate marker will not have any sales maybe a few sales under their belt and yeah it makes it kind of puts the vendor at a lot of risk there because they don’t know essentially how that person is going to promote for them and and they don’t have that trust that relationship built up so I’m going to show you through process what I do and if you model the same the same way I do things, don’t copy exactly or what I do but just model It. I’m gonna show you the ins and outs of what I do so this is kind of behind the scenes it’s kind of like a trailer for the movie you know? And you just simply follow along I will go through the process and exactly what I do step-by-step so that you can learn from that I’m also gonna show you and this is something a lot of people in fact I’d be surprised if I seen anyone do this is, what exactly someone says to the vendor to try and get approval and I want to try and get in the vendors head of what what they’re thinking as well and go over that so I’m going to show you the copy that I actually send and I’m actually going to send it out. I’m gonna wait to see if I get approved for it and we’ll go from there. So if you’re all ready let’s get started!
Joshua Zamora VideoChief UK Edition
Okay when I start the process I like to do it as far out as I can so these product launches are gonna be for February 2018 that I’m looking through. We’re in January at the time of this video recording and it’s let’s see, the 22nd of January today specifically and if you go too far out there are dates that could change and not necessarily are the vendors ready and if you are too late you won’t have time to prepare and you need to prepare. Because it’s a very competitive niche and if you come late to the table you’re gonna miss out there’s. There’s so many people in this industry competing they’re all hungry you don’t come on time, there’s gonna be nothing left for you, you’re just not gonna eat, what can I say? So, the site that I like to go to to see what’s coming down the pipe essentially is one called Muncheye and theres others but this to me is the main one because it has a lot of different affiliate marketing platforms all together on it and it’s the easiest one to read. I find it’s the most up-to-date out of them all and let’s take a look. Don’t be afraid of high-tech items they tend to have the best Commission’s on them and tend to be very solid products, not always but most of the time also don’t feel that you have to go after just the the big launches sometimes there are some diamonds in the rough. Not all the biggest launches are the best products and it’s not all about the big names in fact sometimes there’s more Commissioner since there’s more competition with the bigger names and more are competing. I’ve sometimes had smaller products that I’ve sold more of and and ultimately made more money because I sold more of them at smaller amounts then a few sales from a bigger product. I mean it’s kind of a personal preference thing but that’s just my take on it. I’ve had success with both so let’s take a look at the launches for February and I’m gonna go over that.
Okay so the first one is set to launch on February the 1st 2018 at Eastern Standard Time and it is a product by Joshua Zamora and it is entitled VideoChief UK Edition and the front end price is between 27 and 37. It looks like it’s going to launch with the starting price at 27 and then go up from there. Kind of like an early bird discount I would assume and the Commission is 50% which is great because to me anything that is 50% and above is well worth your time. Now if it’s like a seven dollar product probably not. I mean if it were a seven dollar product or somewhere around that ballpark I’d be looking to have somewhere between 75 and a 100 percent starting commission. Let’s take a look at it together! Here it looks like it is a set of video templates and the templates to me I guess would be very suited and if you’re at an audience that is either a local local businesses or anything really offline marketing perhaps you could also sell these online or started promoting it online let’s take a look at the JV page.
The Junior Venture page is going to be their way of instead of selling to the audience, this page is going to be for basically selling their product idea and launch promoting it in the hopes of recruiting the right people that are gonna make sales for them so as the page launches I’m just gonna go over some typical things that you will see on it. The first thing that I’m seeing well the page loads here is, bonuses sales page preview. Essentially what that is, instead of just launching the product, a lot of times the vendors will release some bonuses that are not exclusive bonuses but just ones that they will issue out for those that are promoting the product and it kind of just sweetens the pot for it and kind of gives more of a lead magnet for to entice people. Essentially they’re gonna do whatever they can to help out potential affiliates and the next thing I notice here is the swipes now your swipes is essentially copy for to email your subscribers on your list. Everyone talks about building a list and making it targeted and buyers lists and so forth so with the swipes it is just copy in a sequence. It’s great for sending out each day and a lot of times you’ll see like day one send this out or actually let me take a step further back a lot of times it’s like pre-launch this is the email that you’re going to send out to your list prior and then for whatever amount of days that the launch is going to go for you’re gonna have day 1 day 2 day 3 day 4 if it’s a four-day launch sometimes even a closing follow up for it to be perfectly honest without adding or editing these that they’re just kind of better off without them. I would stay as far away from swipe as possible because to be perfectly honest a lot of people have the same subscribers on our list and there’s nothing more of a turn-off and shows no personality whatsoever or shows how uncaring or how fake of a relationship you have with that list then sending out something so generic that they get the same exact Carbon Copy from someone else so you know. For me personally, I don’t use them there’s a lot of markers out there that if you ask them they don’t bother so let me take a look here to see is this something that I would personally promote because I mean I do have local business clients a lot of my clients are local and they’re there in Canada and then also because that’s where I’m from and branch out to to the States so… I don’t think I have a whole lot of uk-based customers. I mean I do have some of them for sure but they’re not local. So yeah it’s templates but you see I have a lot of video editing software that I use. This may speed up the process with green screen and it looks like there may have been other versions as well like a US version and so forth. But one thing I did want to point out is that the the JV page does look structured very clean very nice for it. They do offer a lot of resources for potential affiliates banners are good. I mean for your blog put it in the sidebar or in a blog post the bonuses are great! The email swipe like I said I hope that at some point venders would just stop doing swipe because like honestly if people can’t think for themselves or just send out that generic stuff I mean just model the the JV page you get all your information from it anyway. This is the swipe I’m talking about I mean its structure nice but I wouldn’t do it just send it out like that. One thing that I want to point out too is that don’t just click on the link to two requests affiliate approval. What you’re gonna want to do is, I already have networked with Josh in the past for in their pervious launches that I’m on his list. I’m sure from buying products that he’s promoted I bought products through him in the past so I’ve already connected with him on Facebook so he knows who I am but I strongly suggest that if this is something that’s the right fit for you. I don’t think it’s gonna be the right fit for my list right now, and so I’m gonna bow out on on this particular one.
Going over the next one but what I do want to suggest is that don’t just request affiliate approval what you’re gonna want to do is you’re going to want to go into Facebook and message him and introduce yourself connect with him so that that Josh knows exactly who you are and he can always reference like when he gets your affiliate requests you know you’ve already connected with him and already message them and say to them, “Hey Josh, I’ve requested affiliate approval it would be really helpful if if you could take a look. Like connecting with the like-minded people and if you could approve me that would be great”. You know something along those lines so that you so that you build that relationship.
Okay and guys don’t be afraid to pass on something that just isn’t right for your audience because you want to always be promoting something that you believe in. Something that you feel is right for the for your audience who you’re gonna be trageting because that’s the goal of or the job sorry the job of every affiliate marker I strongly believe and I mean you might feel differently, but I feel it is our responsibility as good genuine affiliate markers is to make sure that you match the right product with the right target audience. it’s as simple as that. I mean how else will you end up become the go-to person? The person that that business or people go to each and every time they are looking for a solution to their problem? We are problem-solvers every day not just spammy markers which is my take.
Mario Brown Visulai Software
Let’s check out one by Mario Brown set to launch February 5th 2018 ok and my computer’s run a little slow guys. I’m gonna try and edit this as best I can. Alright good she loaded and so we’re gonna take a look at Visulai Software. $67 at 50% and… I guess not well isn’t that embarrassing. Got the big TBA going on here good job MunchEye. Yeah alright. So she’s not ready to go. Sorry for wasting everyone’s time alright let’s get out of here and I’ll just go on to the next one then.
Eric Holmlund And Mark Hendricks Firesale
The next one we’re looking at is one by Erika Holmlund and Mark Hendricks and so this is a fire sale. Okay okay so the this one’s a little bit different here hmm okay so just to summarize here and I’m not familiar with withMark Hendricks. It seems he had passed away due to a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer and so what I’m getting out of this is that these were a number of great assets that he had built up during his lifetime and so this this particular promotion allows you to resell rights and private label rights for those products and the front end price on it is ninety seven dollars with a fifty percent commission on it. This is great for those that are looking for PLR products and so let’s go ahead and check out the JV page anyway. My aim is always to get at least to three different products and even myself I don’t always get approval for every product and that’s fine I don’t need to because the more products I’m approved for the more my time is stretched anyway and I like to when I am promoting for products I put my all into it. No matter how many sales you have sometimes vendors just have specific affiliates that they go through sent through through the JV page and do all the theatrics but ultimately sometimes there are vendors out there that just have certain people that they trust and they only want those names you know so you’re just not gonna get approved. It’s that simple and that’s cool umm I I don’t mind at all. This JV page basically is a blog post and the information on there. Yeah it is I can see with the WordPress footer so because I’m not familiar with this particular marketer and in order to be the best person to to promote it, PLR rights to me like it depends on what the product is. I’m just not familiar with it enough to be the best person trying to repackage it. So if you’re looking for a good deal on something that has PLR rights to it, that kind of niche then then fine I typically won’t resell something unless I used it myself and really enjoy the the product through. I prefer using myself first before I feel comfortable going in and promoting it to someone else.
Simon Warner VideoRemix Local 360
It looks like the next one here is from Simon Warner it’s Video Remix Local 360 great friend and price that is in the tier I like to see for pretty much get into the mid high ticket item around $197 and the Commission 50% would be great it’s in the video niche. I love video as you can see I’m on video right now so anything in video is something that I’m usually really excited about not excited about the TBA hitting me in the face here but and I’ve used a product called video remax and this would’ve been a great one to promote but it’s not ready so that’s supposed to be for February the 7. I’ll have to check back that might be one that I want to do.
Brad Stephens SyncMSG
I’ll go to the next one here. Tthe next one is by Brad Stephens called SyncMSG or Sync Message and this product is set to launch on February the 8th 2018 and it goes live at Eastern Standard Time. The front end price is $27 and the Commission is 50 percent so let’s take a look and see what this is all about so for this one. It indicates that with one click you can have lead sign ups through three different platforms immediately and you can use it inside the Facebook newsfeed messenger groups and pages. Which is great so it connects them all and this one actually yeah it’s just as I thought it’s a a type of messenger chat bot. This isn’t the first of its kind I’ve seen others do similar things but essentially what I’m getting out of this in the first few seconds is that it essentially is trying to hit as many ways of increasing open rates as possible and build that list by getting them to subscribe in different ways like not just the email list but the Facebook push notifications so that people are alerted right away when when you go online. I think this is great that it uses this as the headlines states you now get them to sign up and there’s three different ways of doing it. That’s definitely something that I think will be beneficial I haven’t offered anything in the past as far as I can recall of this nature but I am aware of chat bots that do this. I also used on my own for automating tasks as well. I do see that there’s some video and stuff that isn’t quite shown yet? It’s not fully prepared but it does have a nice funnel as well. Typically pro version probably has more features. Hey do you want to resell it that’s actually not bad for an agency unless… that’s just developer rights okay? It is developer rights because you can see that there’s a white label here so the white label rights gonna be so that you can resell it as your own after a while you get pretty quick at figuring these all out without even scrolling down the whole thing. Another coming soon bonuses and be surprised if they’re not even there yet. Reciprocate hard, everyone says that. Brad Stephens though is a good guy I’ve spoke with him online multiple times. I trust his products this is still pretty far out from now so I’m not surprised at this point we’re not even technically through January so there are some stuff still being ironed out. Good prizes if there is an affiliate link, I will show you how I sign up for okay? I’m gonna do this one through the JVZoo network as opposed to the JV Share affiliate.
Finally the moment you guys have all been waiting for! I’m going to show you the exact copy that I’m gonna be using to request from Brad Stephens affiliate approval here so I’m gonna put in my affiliate approval request here and I’m gonna show you guys exactly the steps and the mindset of what it’s like to be vendor and what they’re looking for to try and overcome this catch 22. Let’s take a look here, so the first thing you want to do is reference what product you’re actually requesting because they could be launching multiple products on multiple platforms. This lets them know exactly what’s going on so let’s see here and I’m terrible typing and talking at the same time. I probably can’t chew bubblegum and walk at the same time either. Okay um let’s see here, don’t make it a graphic novel or anything like that okay? “Really interested in product name and let them know exactly how you plan to promote through, my website actually I’m gonna say my review website, social media, Facebook ads, PPC (pay-per-click), etc”. Now, a key takeaway from here which in most cases eliminates any kind of apprehensiveness is this next line so take note on this. “We have connected over Facebook in the past and would gladly accept delayed payment status to build trust and sales so”. Let’s review this so basically, what I’m saying is I want to promote this product. I’m telling him how I plan to promote it, and I am taking away any kind apprehension because we have connected online before. He will see in his Facebook messenger that I’ve reached out to him. That’s why I love connecting with like-minded people you should make it your priority to interact and I don’t just pop up once or add people randomly but actually engage with people and build a name for yourself. Your building your brand and if you don’t and you stop short of that you’re only shortchanging yourself. Like that makes no sense at all so you know? When I say you would gladly accept delayed payment you know there’s less apprehension there because if I make a sale then, they don’t have to worry about it. Because there’s a refund period a grace period that has to pass before they even have to release payments so they’re pretty much in the safe zone as soon as they as it gets at that point. Yeah it takes me longer but as I build a reputation with them and different vendors and I make plenty of sales typically they know who I am and I don’t have to end up asking that they just know who I am and I’ve been in some cases just automatically set to to instant. You have to reach that level so I’m gonna go ahead and request that approval and of course I plan to update everyone on how that goes.
What you want to do when requesting these approvals, if they come back and give you an affiliate link don’t go ahead and just use that link. What you want to do is you want to you want to go ahead and cloak that which means take that long ugly address and you want to shorten it with something like Pretty Links Pro or also there’s another one called, Link Master by Brett Rutecky I use myself. I’ll show you just quickly here an example I don’t have approval yet so I’ll give you a quick example. One product that I promote from my resources is a theme and a theme builder called, “Divi” it’s by Elegant Theme and this is the link that they gave me, now that’s a big ugly long link for an affiliate ID and you don’t you don’t want your links all just hanging out there. It’s gross put those away! So, what I do is I use the software like I said Link Master, I resell that as well so if you want a discount on that I can do that. It’s much cheaper than the Pro version of say Pretty Links and I’ve actually migrated over to this because it has ton more features. It’s much more affiliate marketer friendly. It’s just an easier interface I highly recommend it! I use it myself on my own site and so this is my main site and as you can see I have my domain name followed by the product name. You’ll see that’s much more friendlier. It’s much more appealing than just, you know just leaving all your links hanging out there. That’s disgusting, don’t nobody want to see that!
