Affiliate Programs (or ProgramMEs if you’re in the UK!)

I’ve been a bit busy. Late August Bank Holiday weekend saw us laying a concrete floor to extend our kitchen. Looks good too. Anyway, back to business.

As you probably know, Affiliates can earn a very useful, if not amazing, income. The problem I’ve always had is knowing how best to get going and integrate everything into a smooth, well-oiled marketing machine. It’s why I decided to take a different direction and instead go with John Thornhill’s Powerseller Challenge

and Coaching program rather than keep trying affiliate marketing without a plan. However, I can now see a way of doing both.To cut a long story short, I’ve come across what I think is a truly amazing site which covers everything – and I mean everything – and more, to do with Affiliate Marketing. It’s called the Wealthy Affiliate University

and rather than re-invent the wheel and explain it all here, I urge you to click the link and go straight over to have a look.

They set out the whole process so simply that even I have no trouble in setting everything up – and it’s not even my main internet marketing activity.

Now, what about that sales letter?!!

Review of SalesLetterABC.

There seem to be hundreds of ebooks and courses on copywriting available these days, which is hardly surprising considering that it’s one of the most important elements of a website.

Without good copy it wouldn’t matter how many visitors a site had – it needs to sell to those visitors.
Yet it’s also one of the most costly considerations for anyone setting up a site, and one of the most neglected… usually due to either the overall high cost involved in hiring a professional copywriter, or to the confusion that reigns supreme when one attempts to learn the art of writing good copy from the many ebooks and courses one can buy.

So does SalesLetter ABC add to the confusion – or is it a product worth consideration?

Here’s what I think.
At just 33 pages – it’s probably one of the shorter products in the field of teaching copywriting. So at first I wondered if it did actually include everything you need to know to create a good sales letter.

It includes a template which can be used as a guide to copy and paste your own content. This does present an advantage for many who don’t really know where to start, as it’s a simple task to replace the headline with your own and the next section with your own etc. right down to the P.S.’s at the end.

In the report each section of the 10 Steps is detailed with a guide on what should be there.
One of the things I do like about the descriptions is the fact that in each does explain in simple English exactly what should be written and why, yet without the usual 10 pages of detailed analysis that many seem to incorporate.

If anything one of the complaints I’ve always had with most copy courses – is that they are written by copywriters for copywriters. SalesLetterABC does seem to be written FOR the average marketer. It teaches the basics but without the required degree in psychology that many assume you have!

In the section “Further Tips & Recommendations” I found some common sense, and to a degree, obvious tips, but also some very useful comments that help a great deal for anyone who would otherwise struggle to get started and achieve any kind of structured input.

The first 10 sections of the ebook are also extremely useful for anyone starting out, and they cover some of the basics that the professionals take for granted – yet mean little if anything to the novice. What I liked about them was the simplicity of explanations.

No in-depth analysis – just the answers to the questions like which fonts to use, what colours work best, etc.

That to me is the strength of the whole product… the simplicity.
It tells you what you need to know, how to do the job, and what things to incorporate to get the best results. But without all the page after page of confusing statistics!

To cram the 10 sections of the template plus another 12 sections of tips, advice and much needed information, into just 33 pages, shows that it’s all meat and no fluff!

I believe anyone wanting to get started writing their own sales letters would do well to invest in this product and learn from it.
I’m sure they would accomplish the task of completing a sales letter of their own with far more ease than if they had purchased many other products of considerably higher cost.

So it’s a two thumbs up for SalesLetterABC.

I’ve been taking a short break from ‘normal’ business and been checking out the massively popular Digital Products Retailer, Clickbank.com. Wow! There’s a lot of interesting information in there. As a change from the usual computer stuff, here are some of the fascinating topics I came across today:
