It depends the product you want to create, is it a physical product, digital etc.. And then it depends weather you outsource or do most the work on your own. In other words the price will vary dramatically. but you are on the right track owning the product is the way to make much more money. Expecially if your sending traffic to someone elses offer thats converting Now your sending it to you own along with 100 of other affiliates. And getting a bigger slice of the pie.
First of all, check this out.
Some VERY useful information.
Second of all, you MUST make sure you protect your product, or it WILL get pirated, ironically, like Metabolic Cooking.
Third, outsorce, but do it smart. Split the tasks and it will cost you much much less.
Fourth, you must make sure to minimize returns as much as possible. Ways to do that is by making the ebook pretty, making it high quality, and OVERDELIVERING on the back end. Successful businesses are those who exceed their client's expectations at least twofold. Ask meathead.
Fifth, you MUST provide a high comission - atleast %70. Being a vendor is a numbers game. You will make a ton of money even though you only get 30% if you play your cards right.
Sixth, you MUST provide your affiliates with tools and methods. For more info, either PM me, or visit the affiliate section of M Society. That is how it's done.
Seventh - make absolutelyu sure your site is simple and professional and good looking. A bad design will not only turn clients away, but affiliates as well.
Eight, do not be afraid to invest in quality graphics. Professionally done graphics WILL go a long way. Trust me, I am a graphics guy.
Ninth, you must provide your affiliates with support. Good support means much, much more sales.
Tenth, do it legitimately. Don't just rehash something, provide quality content that people need. If you try to scam your way through clickbank, it wil catch up to you on the long run.
I never touch a product with more than 5% refunds.
Note: I know OTrap does and he is making a lot more than me though, so there is definitely a second side to this story.
Eleventh: Be smart and plan ahead. Make a business plan for your product, calculate investments and expected revenue. Then sleep on it. Wake up and rewrite it.
Twelfth: Good luck!
It means 30 distinct affiliates made a sale at agiven pint in time. Gravity will go down if no sales have been made. Every new affiliate who makes a buck gives +1 to the gravity. There is much more to gravity than that, but let's just say that the higher the gravity, the higher the chance some new affiliates who only look at gravity will promote your product.
Yes, basically you don't have to be certified, but that gives additional credibility. You can say that the book has been co authored by a doctor with 78 PHDs (your friend).
Widely depends on the product. Usually around 100 pages is the average from what I've seen. But sum go more and some go less. Smart vendors will split 100 pages into 5 "products" of 20 pages and sell them as a whole problem solving package. That is a double edged sword and can be dangerous if your product is associated for not being worth the money. You can cover that by following the instructions from my previous post.
Include HQ pictures, write in a good font, make it easy for the eyes, have a sense of humor (if applicable) making people laugh can earn you a TON of money. Ask Kevin Hart.
That is really informative for BHW community. Thanks.
Subscribed. I am really interested how this goes. Please keep posting. Thank you!
bookmarked and +reped. nice info
Thanks again for that information!.
My journey starts by having a look on the marketplace. I will spend a few days reading copysales to learn marketing techniques. I know weight loss niche is saturated as well, even though I would like to give a try.
I will keep this post updated.
Thank you all!
Don't forget the sales letter! A good sales letter can be the difference between success and failure. I don't know how talented you are yourself in this matter, but I would advice you to ask someone who's doing it on a daily basis. Basically, it can be the best product in the world, but if the sale letter is bad....sales will be low!
Good luck! Going from affiliate to vendor was pretty profitable for me! Hopefully it will be for you too.
Subscribed I just starting pumping out some products myself.
This is a very good point. Your products actual value doesn't come into play until after the sales letter so imo it's the most crucial step of the whole process. Perceived value is a hell of a thing...
With the great sales copy being mentioned.. anybody have a cheap source (fiverr, etc?) of someone who writes killer sales copy?
Good sales copy isn't going to come cheap. You can try this forum, I think there are some seriously seasoned vets here. Short of that, maybe trying a freelancing site like Elance?
Fiverr is not the place for the sales copy. A cheap source will give you a cheap result...that's just how it works. I would say that you should be able to find a good sales letter writer for about $200. This may sound like a lot, but it really is not. Sales letter is super important...and not something you should go easy on. I can happily direct you to some good copywriters who can do this for you around the price mentioned. PM me if you are interested.
I'm gunna shoot you a PM
Good sales copy is super expensive...really good guys charge $5000 and up. Also the really good video like animiated or like with the girl talking can end up costing well over 5000 as well. I am making my own product right now and want to be able to promote it on adwords myself. I know that if I use anything a copywriter will write then they will never allow it as it will by too hyped up. Thats why most CB products dont work with adwords.
Vendor is where the money and control is. That is what I used to do. I would run an offer as affiliate and if it made sense would create my own product.
Keep in mind there is no need to reinvent the wheel. What I did was custom design website and new sales copy, banners etc than hired a copy writer to rewrite the ebook. Had few products.
Actually I am thinking of bringing one back to life, its in Green Niche Alternative Energy etc. I'll shoot you a pm.
Any suggestions for the best copywriter around? I'm looking to spend up to $1.5k-2k in an amazing, tested sales copy
