High Paying Affiliate Programs
When I started affiliate marketing, I was trying to sell $100 products to make $40. It seems obvious to me now that this is going to be a difficult business model. He would have had to sell thousands of products to live well. Also, I couldn’t use paid strategies the same way I do now.
When you have a range of high-priced affiliate products inside a digital sales funnel, you can afford to spend a lot more on advertising, knowing you’ll pay it back in the long run. This was something I didn’t understand at first. Even the idea of subscription products alone was a game changer for me.
Every subscription you sell gives you a monthly income. Over time, and assuming you build a strong enough customer base, you can earn increasing amounts on a monthly basis.
Even if you have an initial loss (in your marketing), subscription products will eventually pay off, if you get a good enough retention rate. If you then add high-priced products, upsells, and multi-level sales (commissions from other people’s sales), you’ll do just fine.
One of the main problems for me was not the business model at all. I have seen people do well and leave their jobs with high cost affiliate programs. This is the same for many I think. It’s one thing to believe in a high-cost program and another to believe that it can work for you. Without this belief, you will fail. If you don’t believe in something, or have some problems with it, you will refrain from doing it in some way.
The other problem is much more obvious. Lack of cash flow means that high-cost affiliate programs can be prohibitively expensive for some. You must first purchase a sales funnel and program that offers high-cost articles and subscriptions. This is not cheap. Also, the more higher priced items you want in your ‘online store’, the more you have to pay.
Then you have to pay to market your sales funnel. Just because you bought a high-priced digital funnel doesn’t mean it will suddenly spring into action and start making you money. Nope! You will need a marketing engine that drives targeted traffic to your sales funnel. This also costs money. Expect to pay while you learn too. You will need to start spending a monthly budget before you see any return.
And then a lot of your ads just won’t work. Am I being a messenger of doom here? No, just realistic! Don’t waste your money if you don’t think you can keep learning and implementing marketing strategies to drive customers into your funnel. It also takes time to learn which marketing strategies work and which don’t.
However, all said and done, once you’ve mastered marketing, you’ll basically earn an income for life. With a high commission sales funnel, you will have given yourself the chance to earn some pretty fantastic commissions, if you don’t give up first! Those are commissions like $5-$10K per sale depending on what system you use and how you position yourself.
The owners of such digital marketing systems do not give them away! To earn 40% commission on a $35,000 product, you’ll need to purchase the product yourself. If you want the big-ticket items in your digital “store,” you have to buy them. If words like scam and pyramid are flooding your mind right now, you may already be opting out.
But these marketing funnels are real. The people who run them are also real people. It all depends on your perspective and what you are willing to do to earn high ticket commissions on the internet. A lifestyle that means never working for a boss or employer again may be worth it both financially and in terms of the work you’ll have to do.
Financial freedom is also worth a lot. Imagine never having to work for anyone or sitting in traffic to get to and from work again. That is worth a lot to me! Then there’s the geographic freedom that owning a laptop business brings. If you find yourself making excuses, you may not have enough reasons to go through with it.
High commission products have been a complete game changer for me. I had to overcome many internal fears and step out of my comfort zone multiple times, just to grow my online business. Much of the work to be done is not visible. It is in overcoming skepticism and fear of both success and failure.
Your friends and family won’t understand it in many cases either. Accessing a high-priced program and learning how to escape the 9-5 by making money online is still a little out of character for some people. It shouldn’t be because there are obviously a lot of people who have already made a living from the internet. But for those who still trade their time for money, an easier alternative to making money indicates wasted effort over years and decades for many. This is a hard pill to swallow. Too hard for some!
They would rather dismiss it as a hocus scheme. As if doing so would banish it from their minds forever! Then it is safe to acknowledge a life of slavery. If, on the other hand, you choose to embrace technology, you must also work hard and learn new skills and mindsets. This isn’t easy either and while the software has made it easy to build online, for some this still brings with it a sense of terror!
If you can overcome the many obstacles, both internal and external, to building a successful internet business using high-paying affiliate programs, congratulations. You have earned it! For the young this may be easier than for those who are too entrenched in their current mindsets. But as people realize there’s a better way to do things, they jump on the bandwagon or miss out. Which will you be?
