It’s one thing to promote someone’s product as an affiliate, make some sales, and get a one-time commission.
It’s another thing entirely to promote a recurring product, such as a membership.
When I first joined the NAMS (Novice to Advanced Marketing System), I was paying $37 for the Insiders Club. Then I sold 2 memberships, which paid me 50% each month. In other words, I got the Insiders Club for free!
Just 2 months ago, I promoted Kelly McCausey’s Image Monthly Club. This is a great $7 monthly subscription that provides online business owners with a continual stream of images and quotes. I was pleased that 15 people bought the product in response to my email. Each month, I get 15 emails telling me that I made a sale!
So I get 50%, which is $52.50 each month ($7 x 50% = $3.50 x 15 = $52.50).
Now that’s passive income! I promoted the program with 1 email (not always enough) and now I get $52.50 each month automatically. Imagine doing that with several membership programs! You could get recurring income from commissions payments month after month.
Look for membership programs that you can promote. Become an affiliate and send out some emails!
For example, I have a great membership program that you can promote. It’s called Reach the Stars Club and it includes 1-on-1 coaching, bi-weekly reports and workshops, and a private Facebook group. The cost is only $47/month. If you’d like to promote it and get 30% commission, sign up for my affiliate program here.
You should NOT think,
- “My list isn’t big enough”
- “My people aren’t interested”
- “I don’t like to promote”
You probably can’t provide your list (however big or small) with EVERYTHING they need, so they appreciate other offers as long as you don’t overdo it and the offers are valuable. I’m careful to promote only offers:
- From people I know and trust
- That are relevant to my subscribers
- That are great values
Yesterday, I promoted the Insiders Club and got this response from a subscriber,
“I’ve been waiting for this deal. I signed up through your affiliate link. Thanks for sending it.”
If you do it right, you, too, will get responses like that.
