Recently I decided to learn about affiliate marketing as I see a lot of people talk about it, especially on TikTok. I found 2 different courses I can take, both costing $7 each. So I figured it would be good to try, not for the low cost, but it would be an investment into myself. Basically affiliate marketing is you getting paid a commission for referring people to someone else’s product. Which has loads of benefits, namely you don’t have to have any products as well as being able to work from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection.
The first course I took was the 3-Day Freedom Breakthrough Challenge, by Jonathan Montoya. On the first day, you begin to learn the basics of affiliate marketing, and show you his easy-to-follow 3 step process. If you are wondering, he breaks it down making it easy to understand. Day 2, he goes into more detail and shows some tools he uses as well as helps you get set up. The main tools he uses are ClickFunnels, which is a great and easy-to-use website to quickly build landing pages and creating opt-in email lists. The next tool that he uses is GetResponse, which is another easy-to-use auto-responder. This allows you to have an automated email sequence send out to subscribers however often you want, could be daily or every few days, for example. Day 3, he goes into detail about his Freedom Breakthrough course that goes into deeper detail on how to get traffic to your links, collect emails, and more. Also, he offers one-on-one coaching, which in itself is very valuable.
Using each of these tools, I was amazed at how easy they were to use. They simply are just drag-and-drop then you can edit them very easily. No need now to become a programmer in order to do this. One thing he, and others, talk about getting started is to follow several people on social media and simply model their methods. An example is seeing someone’s TikTok post that has 10,000+ views, you can model how they did their video and post it for yourself. Most affiliate marketers will make short 15 or 60-second videos and then point them to their YouTube page.
The second course that I took was the 15-day Business Breakthrough Challenge. This was created by Dave Sharpe of Legendary Marketer. I found this very informative and, like the 3-day, packed with a lot of valuable information. Some of the things I like are that you have a business advisor that helps you and develops your business plan. You also get step-by-step walkthroughs on creating sales funnels and email autoresponders. I’ve also found another autoresponder company that is free to use for 0 – 500 subscribers, which is Aweber.
Also like the 3-day challenge, the first few days they give you the basics. However, if I recall, day 4, 5, and/or 6 require the business advisor to unlock them. They want to make sure you are ready to continue and after you submit your business plan, they will unlock the remaining days after the challenge.
You are able to become an affiliate for both courses after you complete them, which you will earn a 50% commission for each person that signs up. This will also help generate passive income, meaning you will only have to do it once and then you can send out the affiliate links in email or on social media.
I would highly recommend getting both courses, which again only costs $7. If you think about it, that’s about the cost for a coffee at Starbucks so that is something to think about as it would be an investment into yourself and you can apply what you learned to any product that offers referrals or affiliates to get some extra goodies.
