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 didn't find WA through your website but I have seen your website popping up for research lately. I was happy to see you were on here.

I am really glad to see your success stories. And I look forward to your tips and trainings to learn from.

Appreciate it!

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,
- Glen B

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

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

My access to live chat is blocked cause I got reported a couple of days back for no reason. It ain't scam or anything like that. I was arguing with one member and all of them joined and 10 members reported me. I'm not able to reply to Kyle's messages. What do I do? My other account's name is AV2001. I'm not able to reply to any messages from that account so I had to make a fake account.

I watched one of your videos (not sure which one) but I felt your honestly and your genuineness about you. Then I read your profile that you worked as an OTR driver. I am not a driver but I do work for Swift Transportation and been working as a Driver Manager for the last 6 years now and know of the life style you had and the challenges you were faced with.
I just want to say thanks for leading me to WA and I am looking forward to the journey.
I do have a quick question, I was first looking at AWOL and was absolutely shocked of how much money they are asking for training. Are there other hidden cost within WA after becoming a Premium member?

Hey, I'm so sorry for the slow response! I have an old friend in town and have been neglecting WA. :(

I worked for Prime, Inc., I'm sure you're familiar with them as well. No offense, but man oh man do I NOT miss my driver manager. He had control over every little aspect of my life. If I screwed up one little thing, I'd suddenly find myself stuck in the northeast for a week straight. Ugh. For the most part he was fair, but having one person control so much of your life was not fun. And don't get me wrong, I KNOW your job isn't easy, either!

There are a couple of "hidden" costs with WA, actually. The first is you'll want to purchase your own domain name. You can get started with a free domain name here, but eventually, you will definitely want to set up your own domain name, which you can buy here at WA. I believe it costs $14 but I'm not totally sure on that.

You can also upgrade the Jaxxy keyword tool to a pro version, however, I actually don't recommend doing that. The free version of Jaxxy (included with your WA membership) is enough to get some research started, but from there you can do plenty of additional keyword research for free.

Other than that, pretty much everything you'll need to run your business and all the training is included.

There are a lot of bad DM's out there for sure. I started working for Swift in a dedicated environment and l liked it. I wanted to expand my knowledge of the transportation industry and decided to take on OTR drivers. THAT was a different world. After 8 months of being a DM for OTR I transferred back to the dedicated side of the business. Being a DM inside a terminal is stressful. They have so many quotas and goals to meet each week for each driver that I was responsible for. They keep track of all the calls you get, how long your on the phone, how many calls missed and crap like that. I didn't like being micro managed like that. Dedicated world is SOOOOO much better.
Anywho... I have a coaching call this morning with AWOL which was the first affiliate program I was looking into and I am going to tell him to hit the road unless he can justify why AWOL is so much better that WA. I think AWOL has a good program but I don't feel warm and fuzzy when I watch and hear that dude talk. They want $15,000 up front and that is not something I have right now. I'm will to take a little longer to get to my goal if I can avoid that kind of up front money.
Thanks again for your kind and honest suggestions. I hope you will get the credit when I sign up for Premium.

Dude, $15k is insane! I don't know what you committed to on the phone, but please RUN away from that. It's a scam, I'm telling you. You'll never, ever get $15k worth of value from them and I don't care what they guarantee you. You'll never see that $15k again. They haven't even existed more than about a year. Go back to 2016 and look at what their site looked like: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.awolacademy.com/

Will you learn some valuable stuff going through AWOL? Sure, probably, but $15k is robbery. You obviously have to make your own decision, but I encourage you to listen to your gut. If you're not getting the warm and fuzzies, there's a reason for that.

And hey, I even say the same about WA. Sure, I'd like a commission, but WA is not for everyone, so if you don't get the warm and fuzzies here, that's cool, too. Just don't give anyone $15k, please!!
