  • Hi Jerry,

    Very informative post for anyone who wants to go the affiliate route.

    To go with what you mentioned about Amazon, once you are and associate (they refer to
    affiliates as associates), you can actually create up to 100 Amazon stores at no cost.
    You can set them up to sell everything Amazon has to offer, or you can have a different
    store for any category or sub-category you choose. You will need a domain name and
    hosting if you don’t have an existing website. There are 3 ways to integrate you new
    aStore (Amazon store) to an existing website once it’s created. You can link the URL to
    your website’s menu as a “store”, embed it on a new or existing page using an inline frame,
    or integrate it using a frameset.

    I’m an Amazon associate but don’t do to much with it due to my focusing on iPro.

    Have a great week…….Chris

      The affiliate route is definitely a wiser choice for the newbie marketer. They have a better chance to leverage what is already working for so many. There primary goal or task is only to send the targeted traffic to the site(s) they are promoting and let them do their thing.

      Thanks so much for your feedback bro.

  • Jerry many thanks for sharing such incredibly detailed coverage of yout top 5 recommended affiliate prorams.

    Affiliate marketing is no doubt the easiest and fasted way for a newbie online marketer to get started online and this post will be invaluable research for these folks.

    I actively use Clickbank and JVZoo plus I am a partner with Dean Holland’s iPro business – your comments on all 3 were very fair and ueful although I must tell you that iPro are about to launch a whole series of new sales funnels.

    May I also add that if you are starting out as an affiliate marketer that you simply don’t drive traffic straight to a vendor’s sales page. If this method is used then you will never see those prospects again and all you have done is build the vendor’s mailing list.

    Instead create your own landing (squeeze) page with some sort of appropriate high value freebie and commence your list building right from the start. Be real and authentic in the emails you send to your list and don’t be afraid to say you’re just starting out as an affiliate marketer – build your relationships with your subscribers and then send them off to your chosen affiliate product offer on Clickbank, JVZoo etc.

    Thanks again for this great mresearch – I will definitely be sharing this with my list


    • Jerry Handy says:

      Peter you are absolutely correct about creating your own squeeze page to build your list but 10 times out of 10 the newbie is not ready for that just getting started.

      Now of course after they have developed more marketing education and knowledge it would be very wise for the to initiate that process for sure.

      As to the other funnels in iPro that is yet to come. As of right now this post reflects the current position and when the new funnels come I will update the post.

      Thanks so much for your feedback and I’m glad you liked the post.

    Hey Jerry, Great blog post explaining different ways to work online. Great comments, also above, that add to your content. I really like the pro tips and I need to look into the app that does that cool typing while I am reading. I do affiliate marketing and list building and looking back, I wish I would have started with ebay and Amazon. 🙂 Reading your post reminded me of when I got started and the time involved in just learning about affiliate marketing.

    • Jerry Handy says:

      Thanks Theresa. I appreciate your comment. As to the app that does the cool typing I use Thrive Content Builder for that.

      You can find a link on the tools tab here on the blog. In full disclosure it is an affiliate link and by purchasing through that link you will be contributing to this site.

      thanks again for your feedback and good luck to you in your business.

    Hey Jerry,

    Great write up with easy steps to follow for those who are starting out.

    As always, you do have the gift of presenting information in a very simplified and easy to follow manner.

    Is the landing page skin that was there when I first came on to the page and disappeared as I scrolled down, part of Thrive as well?

    Take care.

    • Jerry Handy says:

      Thanks Ben. As to the welcome mat that is presented when you land on the site, yes it’s is a part of the thrive suite called thrive leads. It too is on the “Tool” tab above. Also it is an affiliate link and you will bless the site if you choose to purchase.

      Thanks again for the feedback.

    I think this is a well laid out post which will prove helpful to aspiring affiliates for the following reasons:

    -when starting out you don’t usually know what to try
    -there is a strong temptation to blindly go with the highest paying affiliate offer

    And now to the really important issue of Product Reviews. By reviewing different affiliate options, one easily gets a sense of the positive and negative aspects of each offer. This then makes the decision process much easier and so the aspiring affiliate marketer has an increased chance of success.

  • Hi Jerry

I look forward to more of your tips to making money with affiliate maketing by signing up to your mailing list. Take care and have a blessed day my friend.
