About AffTraining
Joined June 2016
Back in 2009 I was a long-haul truck driver with nearly $50,000 in debt and $200 in my bank account. For this, and other reasons, I was near rock bottom in life. That's when I discovered affiliate marketing and my life was changed forever. By 2011, I quit my job and was working on my business, Rogers Concepts. I have been earning a solid 6 figure income online since 2011 through a diverse portfolio of web properties. You can check out all of the web properties I currently own here: http://www.rogersconcepts.com.

If you only check out one of my sites, I strongly urge you to check out this one: http://www.affiliatemarketertraining.com. As a "super affiliate" I love teaching others about affiliate marketing as well as giving REALISTIC expectations. I'm a firm believer that affiliate marketing is a business just like any other. Due to the flood of get-rich-quick schemes involved with affiliate marketing, I decided to create a "no B.S." site for newcomers in the affiliate marketing industry. Thus, AffiliateMarketerTraining.com was born.

I absolutely love life and live a very minimalist lifestyle with my dog as we travel across the United States in my 31ft travel trailer. I'm always looking to connect with people so feel free to shoot me a message anytime!

Those are wonderful goals Mike and I can tell you firsthand that these are more than achievable. When I started out I had very similar goals and with some hard work and dedication, I exceeded any goals that I could have ever initially set.

You will get there if you invest some hard work and dedication to this, I don't have any doubt. :)

Hi Mike, I just followed you because it was recommended to follow all the Top 100 members here on WA. I can see how that makes a great deal of sense. So, with that in mind...I look forward to seeing more of your training and hope to follow in many of the successful members' footsteps...just need more time to put in to this.

Hi Mike,
Q1 - My website and contents are about Microblading eyebrows. If I want to also do affiliate marketing with amazon, can I use the same website to market their products or Do I need to start another website like jewls product review etc.?
Q2 - I redirect my jewlsbeauty.com to jewlsmicroblading.com as you recommended, but after 30 days, can I stop the redirect and utilize the website again?
Q3 - The hard work that we need to put in that everyone is talking about, is everyone referring to writing the contents? Cause I think that is the hardest :( Thanks

Hey there!

Q1 - Setting up a second site is really a matter of personal choice. About 10 years ago, I always recommended creating several smaller websites, but these days I mostly recommend growing larger and more authoritative sites. There is no right or wrong answer here as either option is totally valid.

Q2 - I think that would be fine. Chances are, you're not getting much if any traffic on that first site, so you can stop redirecting it and just create a new site if you'd like. I don't think this would cause you any problems.

Q3 - Well, yes, that's absolutely true. For the most part, once your website is set up, your main job will be producing as much keyword focused content as you possibly can. All of my websites have hundreds of pages of content. You're right, this is the hardest part, especially doing this for month or even years before it all really pays off. It's the biggest barrier to making money with affiliate marketing, the majority of people just don't have the patience or desire to write that much content over such a long period of time. I know this probably isn't what you want to hear, but I'm a "no B.S." kinda guy and just tell the truth. In this business, content is King.

I just didn't know what they meant when they said you need to do some hard work. Now that I know I better get cranking on those contents...lol I'm getting a little better anyway. The hardest part was the first one, but now I have some ideas how all this work, I think I can do this.

I have hard time getting free images for my website, do most people purchase their images that they put on their website?

Thanks again for all your help!

Mike, Took a look at your site. Simple and great info. I noticed you don't capture emails when people click on your "take a closer look button". Have you tested that? I'm always interested in how people succeed and the reasons they use one method over another.

Thanks,

You know, email marketing is touted as one of the best marketing methods and I'm sure I'm losing out on money by not creating email lists. I just personally really hate spam and getting emails from people who just want to sell me stuff. I also just want to get straight to the point. Instead of giving a huge sales pitch, capturing emails, retargeting, etc... I just get people to click on my affiliate link and over to WA where WA can close the deal. The least number of steps or clicks to get over to WA the better.

This is just me. I'm not saying this is the best method to go with, but it's how I've traditionally do things as I just don't enjoy email marketing.

Hi Mike,

I hate email marketing as well. So I've taken a different approach.

But first you know you stand to double or triple your signups using email. Here is the reason why and I will tell you my methods because I think you will do much better.

The reason why is we get busy and we jump from one thing to the next. When someone comes to your affiliate page and they just don't have time at that moment you pretty much lose them. This is a proven fact. I've tested it for years.

But first how I came up with this method is I disect many of the other people's pages from the most successful affiliates here on WA. I do this because I want to know what makes them successful. I've done that with your page. And even though I'm not a big earner here yet. I have made as much as 100,000.00 in 7 days in my other marketing ventures and I will do well here as well. But to get to the point all the successful WA Affiliates use email marketing. And I have modeled the ones that I feel comfortable using.

First I don't spam my list. I only send them a series of training that leads them right back to WA. That's it nothing else. I don't send other offers, nothing. I don't because I hate when others do it to me and I will unsubscribe in a heartbeat.

So I offer a training. It's a 10 day series of emails that I send that teaches using WA posts and pages so everything leads right back to WA. Not the sales page but different pages within WA written by others. All with my affiliate link. Eventually I will write posts of my own and send them to those.

I'm happy to share my email series with you if it's something you would like to test.

My opin takes them directly to a custom WA sales page with a video. That personal touch could increase your sign ups alone.

Granted I'm still building my sites here at WA but I've been an internet marketer since 1999. I decided this year to make WA my final resting place and build it out as my retirement plan. I'm not a youngster anymore.. lol

So if you would like me to share this with you so you can do a bit of testing and see if it increases your sales. I'm happy to share it with you.

Just remember it takes 7 exposures to something for most people to take action. So imagine if you you could get just some of those who click away to join.

Let me know,
- Glen B

Thanks so much Glen, it sounds like you've got an excellent system in place and really know what you're doing. I'm sure I'll see you in Vegas soon, I'm sure we'll have lots to talk about!

Increasing conversion rates is always a great way to bring revenues up. Many of us get so focused on just bringing in more traffic instead of increasing conversion rates on the traffic we already have. That is all very true.

This is something I'll have to look into a bit more. Thanks for sharing all your tips and advice, really appreciate that!

No Problem Mike, My new goal in life is to help as many succeed at affiliate marketing as I can.

I'm happy to share my autoresponder sequence and a link to my signup page ect.. So you can model after it. Just IM me if you want that.

I may actually reach out to you as well Glen. I've been debating whether or not to jump into email marketing now or wait. I've been waiting....but keep questioning if I should be waiting. Then I read your email! #facepalm

Hi Mike,
I just purchased another domain because o thought my niche was too broad. Is there a way to transfer my infirmation from the previous domain to a new domain? The previous one is jewlsbeauty.com and the new one is jewlsmicroblading.com. Im hoing to use both domains in the future, but i want to start with the jewlsmicroblading.com first.

Thanks
Julie

Hey there Julie,

This isn't a problem. Since you don't have too many pages yet, what I'd do is just re-create the site on the new domain. Then, you can simply redirect your old domain to the new one. So, you'll just go into Websites --> Domains. Then, just click the Settings box next to jewlsbeauty.com and select Redirect. Enter in your new domain and you'll be all set!

Does this help?

Mike
