The biggest failure in affiliate marketing is not collecting
prospects’ email addresses. If you o­nly send your prospects to
your affiliate website, you are promoting someone else’s

The biggest failure in affiliate marketing is not collecting
prospects’ email addresses. If you o­nly send your prospects to
your affiliate website, you are promoting someone else’s
business, not your own. Your goal should be not to sell
affiliate products, but to grow your own business.

Here is how you build an affiliate business.

1.
Use a lead-capture page.

Get your own website and build a home page. Don’t write a sales
letter for your affiliate product. Instead, write an email
course focusing o­n the strongest benefits of your product.
Highlight these benefits in a short sales letter that is
designed for o­ne thing o­nly—to get people to subscribe to your
course. Then, in your course, promote your affiliate product.
The value in this method is that you are actually building a
direct marketing business and gaining your own customers.

2.
Build your own list.

Spend your time, effort, and money driving targeted traffic to
your website. The more visitors you get, the more subscribers
you get, and hopefully the more money you make. You can never
underestimate the long-term value in having your own customer
list. Keep building it. Spend at least 65% of your time in
building your list

3.
Reinvest in your business.

When you make a sale, congratulate yourself! Take some of the
profits and spend them o­n yourself. Take your spouse to dinner,
go to a movie, or buy another internet marketing ebook! But your
goal should be to grow your business. You should take at least
60% of your profits and reinvest them back into your business.
How? By buying more ezine ads, adding another pay-per-click
campaign, or using some other kind of advertising. Perhaps you
could buy an ebook with reprint rights instead of marketing
affiliate products—that way you keep all of the profits.

4.
Keep marketing to your list.

You should always be o­n the lookout for new products to
promote. Whenever you find o­ne, write another email series, add
it to your autoresponder, and keep promoting to your list. Focus
on adding at least o­ne new product and series to your
autoresponder every month. Some will get tired of the
information you send and unsubscribe, but if you are focused o­n
building your list you will always have many more subscribers
for each unsubscribe you receive.

If you follow these steps, your affiliate business will grow
into a very profitable direct marketing business.
