MYTH: Most of Your Sales Will Come from Only a Few Affiliates

There is a killer myth that says that most of your sales will come from only a few affiliates. This myth is so pervasive that I have literally heard one of the top names. Someone you all know. One of the top names in the internet marketing space claim this as a statement of FACT from stage. In fact, the exact quote they used is this: “90% of your sales will come from your top 3 to 5 affiliates.” Let me be brutally clear here: This is nothing more than a cop out. An excuse to not work with smaller affiliates. An excuse to go out and get your 3 or 4 best buddies and a few other people and call it a day. Today, I share why this myth is flat out WRONG and how to develop an ARMY of loyal, dedicated affiliates of all sizes.

MYTH: To Get Affiliates You Have to Know People & Do Lots of Reciprocal Promotions

There's a myth that says that having an affiliate program is only for the cool kids with the right connections. Or to get affiliates, you have to burn your list promoting everyone else’s stuff all year just to get your own affiliates. WRONG! When I started my first affiliate program, I knew absolutely NO ONE. In fact, no one on our team did. We weren’t the cool kids. We didn’t have dads who knew the right people. We started with nothing and in 2 years built a $12.6M affiliate program. In today's episode, I'll bust these myths and show you how you can find the right affiliates...even if you don't know anyone in your niche!

Think You're Short on Time? Think Again.

If you think you're short on time and can't make a difference with your business, you need to hear this short message today. It's inspired by an email I received from Colter Reed and it has a powerful truth in it.  Here's the email from Colter: Good afternoon, Matt! Just wanted to drop you a quick note…   I’m a little dizzy. I’m currently #13 on the leaderboard! I’m sure it won’t last; I’m just stoked that I made an appearance in the top 15.   Here’s the crazy part: due to bad planning on my part, I was completely unprepared for the launch, including the fact that I’m super busy right now. But I still wanted to let my tribe know about F2F. I sent one email about the questionnaire the day it went live, and a second email at lunch today (guess when I wrote the email) about the webinars and cart open. Two emails. Don’t let anyone tell you they don’t have time to make a difference.   Links Mentioned In The Episode How I Currently Make $3,874 a Week Without Creating a Single Product: http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/watch Take our Affiliate Marketing Survey: http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/affsurvey Ask Me a Question here: http://www.asktheaffiliateguy.com/ All our recommended affiliate programs:  http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/whatsup Your First 100 Affiliates Report: http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/first100
