  4. 4. Partner & Profit: Affiliate Marketing Jumpstart ManualBecoming an affiliate marketer overnight involves only one simple step:Taking action.Follow these five simple steps, and you wont find yourself like the majorityof your peers, endlessly "preparing" or "learning". -- you can start earningright away.Step #1 Assess Your Needs, Resources and GoalsYoull set up an affiliate marketing plan thats much more in tune with yourdreams if you first make a plan. And that includes assessing your needs,resources and goals... Do you want to become a "super affiliate", making all of your money from passive income? Or do you already have a business passion and see affiliate marketing as a way to maximize income from your main skill? Do you need to earn money as a sole family income... or is this going to be "pocket money" on the side, good for treats or perhaps a way to save up toward your familys next vacation? Do you already have a niche in mind, or is your approach more "anything goes"? Are you comfortable with multi-tasking, or do you work better focusing on just one method? Do you have funds available for business start-up? If so, how much? Do you enjoy being a "personality" or are you more comfortable being "behind-the-scenes"? Do you already have any of the following skills: WordPress blogging experience Content creation (writing) Graphics creation ability Using cPanel© Stephen Pierce International, Inc. 4|P a g e
  5. 5. Partner & Profit: Affiliate Marketing Jumpstart Manual Using an FTP program Writing HTML and/or CSS Using an Autoresponder Registering domains Website creation How many hours per day can you devote to affiliate marketing? ___________ What time of day is your most productive? ___________Step #2: Making a PlanWith this basic self-assessment under your belt, its now time to make a plan-- and a schedule.Pacing yourself is vital to success, so making a schedule and committingyourself to sticking to it can help you get over inertia or confusion muchmore quickly than leaving it to the inspiration of the day (or the distractionon your screen). Telling yourself "today I have to research and decide on aweb host and find and register my domain" helps you stay on target muchbetter than getting distracted by the latest Special Offer to cross your inbox.Below, youll find a brief reminder about skills you may need or actions youneed to take. Use this chart to determine whether you want to do ityourself, outsource it... or leave some things for future outsourcing. Notethat many of these sections will be for well down the road. For now,print out and highlight only those areas that apply immediately to your setup.(It makes solid business sense to keep your initial set up simple, addingoutsourcing after the income starts coming in... unless, of course, "doing ityourself" is going to cost you money in time lost or mistakes made.)© Stephen Pierce International, Inc. 5|P a g e
  6. 6. Partner & Profit: Affiliate Marketing Jumpstart Manual Task/Skill Do it myself Package/Inline Outsource Services/Automation Register Domain Change Use web host who - Hire blog NameServers, if includes free designer who registration registration of first includes domain company different domain name with and hosting set from web host multiple-site package up as part of services Set up blog in - Let someone else set - Hire blog WordPress up a blog for me as part designer of their web hosting - Hire VA who package specializes in - Buy pre-set-up niche blog setup blog Learn to blog (handle - I am already the Dashboard, upload skilled images and posts, - Buy course, "how install plugins, etc.) to" book or look up free videos on YouTube Research viable niches Use keytools, Invest in monthly - Outsource to Google and/or my membership with site research acute super- providing pre- specialist (often powers of researched niche found with observation content content sites) Subscribe to Follow video Buy Autoresponder PLR - Hire VA who Autoresponder (Aweber tutorials and to help me create specializes in highly recommended) wizard prompts to content for my new list my set up my own Autoresponder confirmation and of choice to welcome letter, handle all thank you letter, uploads and list follow up emails management for me Sign up for PayPal and verify account (link it to a bank account or credit card)© Stephen Pierce International, Inc. 6|P a g e

(N.B. Never ghostwriting submit PLR to Article - Hire a Directories!) ghostwriter to - Re-write PLR for my write with my own blog posts unique "voice" Article Marketing - Research - Use article submission - Hire a VA who directories for my service or software specializes in niche article marketing to - Submit articles submit and manually manage this for me Advertising - insert ad for my - Hire a VA or campaigns in ad manager who related ezines will advise me on advertising - Create Facebook and set it up ad with daily limit - Explore PPC ads Social Networking - Invest an hour a - Use apps such as - Hire a VA who day (or less) in HootSuite and can handle all building TweetMeme (as well as my social relationships via other Social Networking networking Twitter, Facebook sites as Stumbleupon) and LinkedIn to auto-submit posts for meMake decisions based on: Current skills you already possess What you enjoy What you dont enjoy What youre good at What wastes too much time, once you get into itUsing a highlighter to block out each section in the chart above is a handytrick for keeping yourself focused and on target (especially if youre a visuallearner).© Stephen Pierce International, Inc. 7|P a g e
  8. 8. Partner & Profit: Affiliate Marketing Jumpstart Manual TIP: Try coloring steps you plan to immediately take in one color and steps for later down the road in another color.Step #3: Getting Started and Taking ActionNext you need to find viable products to promote. If you already have aniche youre passionate about, now is the time to do your research.Absolutely, you can do keyword research; using free tools like Googles autosuggest function in its Search Engine.You can also use the free version of Traffic Travis program (and evenGoogles External Keytool to cross-check results) -- but you can alsoshortcut this process by checking larger affiliate networks such asAmazon.com or Pepperjam; or even ClickBank.Not only will checking large networks turn up likely products, it will also giveyou a strong indication about whats currently "hot" -- and whats not. Yourresults will also show you multiple angles of a topic to blog about.(Magazines -- online and at your local grocery story, newsagents or booksuperstore -- will also shortcut you on hot, trending niches and topics.)Once youve got topics and products, its time to: Write articles for directories Find directories ("[your topic + directory + article" in search box:© Stephen Pierce International, Inc. 8|P a g e
  9. 9. Partner & Profit: Affiliate Marketing Jumpstart Manual E.g. "pregnancy directory article" Register your domain and set up your blog Upload and at least six posts (pre-schedule some, if youve written more than six) Submit as many articles as you can to at least three major, relevant directoriesYoull want to find directories specific to your niche, but also make sure yousubmit to at least one mainstream general directory such as Infobarrel. "QUICK START" TIP: If you want or need to get started right away without investing any cash at all, by-pass the blog route for now and submit articles containing your affiliate links in your Resource Box (or the body of the article, if allowed) to free directories only. Remember to check the guidelines for each directory and be extremely careful not to violate any -- especially with sites such as Squidoo.com. This will make you pennies in the long run, compared to owning your own blog -- but it will get your links out there straight away.Finally, if you have set up a blog, make sure you sign up for your $1 Aweber-- and start building your list straight away. Be sure to include a contactform in one of your blog theme sidebar widgets, inviting people either tosign up for a free report, if you have one ready, or simply to be notified nexttime you post. (Aweber has pre-designed contact forms you can customizeand easily insert into your blog.)Ideally, you should plan to start making money and building your list asquickly as possible during your Aweber $1 trial -- so that when its time topay your first monthly $19.95, your first affiliate marketing profits havealready paid for that!Finally, once your site is up and running (and looking pretty darn good)apply to join a few of the bigger affiliate networks such as Pepperjam,Commission Junction or Shareasale.© Stephen Pierce International, Inc. 9|P a g e
  10. 10. Partner & Profit: Affiliate Marketing Jumpstart ManualStep #4: Promote Your Affiliate LinksYouve found products to promote, paying attention to: Commission rate Type of cookie (one time, lifetime, tiered) Gravity (in ClickBank) Eligibility (yours) Payment methods and details The merchants reputation and track record Whether or not the merchant has an effective, professional sales letter and site Whether or not the merchant has resources for you to use (graphics, banners, code, PLR content, FAQ, instructions)Youve made good use of these resources (while naturally making your siteand content as unique as possible, giving the product your own "voice").Now its time to promote your products.Youve already made a good start with your article submissions -- butremember to incorporate as many methods right now as you naturally andeasily can. This could include any or all of: Offline promotion (press releases to local papers; your URL on t-shirts, caps, business cards, stationery, handouts, mouse pads, etc; giving talks to local organizations; donating to local causes and organizations) Facebook or ezine advertising Social networking Guest blogging or interviewing guests/granting guest interviews on your niche topic YouTube videos Email marketing to your list (mini-courses, offers, really priceless information, "how to" tips, etc.) © Stephen Pierce International, Inc. 10 | Page
  11. 11. Partner & Profit: Affiliate Marketing Jumpstart ManualAlways be creative and passionate about promoting your products. You willabsolutely get to the really passive, "set and forget" stage -- but not withoutinvesting your energy and time at the beginning. Remember, the more youput into set up, the quicker youll see rewards.Step #5: Tracking and Fine TuningOnce youve got the ball rolling, resist the temptation to check your PayPalaccount every five minutes. (Murphys other law states that income onlycomes in when youre not looking for it!) But do keep an eye on whatsworking for you and whats not.If a product is not converting well, try tweaking a headline, changing agraphic, changing your copy. If that doesnt work -- replace that productwith a better one!Stay involved with your blog, even if thats just to keep a regular eye on itand update your plugins. If youve allowed comments (and there are twocamps on whether or not you should allow comments, in todays affiliatemarketing climate) be sure to check them, so see what is generatingactivity... and whats not.Install Google Analytics. (There are WordPress plugins you can explore too,to help you track.) Pay attention to your affiliate payouts, ensuringeverything is moving smoothly and information is correct.Finally, dont expect to become a millionaire overnight. Sometimes itrequires a few tweaks to get your mix right, but dont give up too easily!Theres no such thing as a free ride -- even though you will eventually bemaking real money "on autopilot". Making an income requires time,commitment and work -- but I hope this guide will help you work smarterand quicker; not harder!No matter what your motivation, needs, goals or skill level -- you can onlybenefit from stepping into the pool straight away. Congratulations on yourcommitment to taking this first step. © Stephen Pierce International, Inc. 11 | Page
