I must admit, I really LOVE affiliate marketing.
The ability to make money without having to create a product, deal with customers, ship items out, process payments and all the other headaches is just plain awesome!
The model I have followed mainly until now has been promoting Amazon products. I’d build a niche website, add Amazon affiliate links, rank the website in Google and then sell the website when it was making money.
I’ve done this HUNDREDS of times.
But recently, as you know if you’ve been following this blog, I’ve also started more mainstream affiliate marketing too.
This typically goes something like this:
Squeeze page => Build a list => Provide Value => Promote Products
Some people get this horribly wrong and focus more on promoting than on actually providing value. So they fail miserably and don’t know why.
The great thing is that there ARE ways to learn how to do it correctly, which brings me on to the point of this post…
The Ultimate Shortcut To Affiliate Marketing Success
The shortcut is this; if you want to learn how to succeed in affiliate marketing then find someone who is already making a sh*t ton of money doing it and copy what they are doing.
Success leaves clues.
Tony Robbins says it like this:
“If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you’ll achieve the same results”.
Sounds simple doesn’t it?
The thing is…it really is that simple.
There is no need to over-complicate things or re-invent the wheel. You don’t have to try and create some magical new system or think there’s some secret that only the rich affiliates know.
Here’s the truth, there are no secrets…but there ARE strategies that if you follow them, you’ll get the same results.
So if you want to become a super affiliate marketer, find a super affiliate and copy what they do.

I’m just telling it like it is 🙂
