💰 How I Made $229,562 With Affiliate Marketing With THIS (2021)
What's going on, guys? Matthew
Sabia here. Now, you guys have basically been begging me to make more affiliate marketing
videos. In this one, I'm going to do something pretty special and really over-deliver. I'm going
to show you how to build the exact case study file that's responsible for generating over a quarter
million dollars in pure profit affiliate sales over this past year. Not only that,
I'm going to be showing you exactly the traffic source that we use to get hot buyer traffic to
this funnel as soon as tonight. You guys are ready for this, let's strap in and get started.
I'm going to show you guys exactly how to build a funnel. We're going to go over how the whole thing
works. I'm going to show you how to build the video for the funnel, which is very, very simple.
You can do it on any computer, you don't need any video skills, you don't need to be on camera.
I'm going to show you how to setup your email funnel, and how to get traffic to that funnel
as soon as tonight. Without further ado, let me hop onto my computer. I first want
to show you the results of this funnel from over this past year, like I was telling you.
Then we're going to hop right into my ClickFunnels account, I'm going to show you how to build this
funnel yourself, and I'm going to link to this funnel down below as well. If you guys want,
link below in the description, it's going to import this funnel into your account,
all you need to do is replace the video, replace it with your affiliate links,
and you're going to be good to go. Now, before you build your first case study file, it's very,
very important that you click the like button down below. It really helps out this channel,
the YouTube algorithm, and leave a comment down below as well.
If you have any comments, questions whatsoever, I read and reply to most of them now. Of course,
click subscribe if you want to see more videos like this. But without further ado, let's go
ahead and jump right into this. All right guys, here we are inside of one of my JVZoo accounts,
and what I want to do is head over here to my account and click on JVZoo pay. As you guys
can see here, on this account, I've generated just over $744,000, 718,000 of which has been paid out.
It's too much money coming in, so you guys can really see the potential of this.
For all the really cynical people who say, "That's probably a product that I'm selling,
I'm doing it as a vendor, not as an affiliate. Well, what I could do for a little bit more proof
is actually head over here to affiliates and click on affiliate dashboard. I'm going to come down
here, and I'm going to set this to the beginning of this year, to the day that I'm filming this
video. January 1st, to today, I'm going to click on refresh. If you look down here, you'll see that
we generated $229,000 just under a quarter of a million dollars, in affiliate earnings this year.
I'm actually going to go ahead and blow this up, just so you guys can see. We have the full
breakdown, the stats here. Now I am going to go ahead and blur out the actual product names we've
been promoting, mostly because I don't want this video to go on to get a million views,
then I'm responsible for people not following my tactics accordingly, and sending these poor
vendors a bunch of garbage traffic, and then I get a bad name in the industry.
I'm going to go ahead and blur those out, but you guys can see all the real numbers right
here. You can see that some of these down here, they actually don't have any clicks
through to them. Those are the upsells, or OTOs, inside the funnels for these products.
We have one product here for 92,000, 61,000, 42,000, these are all the main products that I
promoted this year using these case study funnels I'm about to show you guys. Now
that you guys understand the power of using case study funnels for these type of affiliate offers,
we're going to hop in my click funnels account, I'm going to show you exactly how to set this up.
If you guys want, you can steal my exact funnel by clicking the link down below. It's completely
free, it's going to import it right into your ClickFunnels account. Let's do a quick breakdown
of this case study funnel. Again, the link is down below if you guys want to copy this
into your account, or just copy what I'm showing you on the screen right here and build your own.
Now, first thing that we do is send them to this simple opt in page. I actually like to put the
product logo up at the top right here, then you guys just replace the headlines. Insert product
benefits, that way your case study video will show. Hey, do you want to see how I did X within
X? Go ahead, check out this free video, something like that. Make sure it's linked up to your auto
responder, click here to watch the video. That's going to take them to the actual case study page.
Now this is it, it's extremely simple. Case study, exactly how I used this tool to generate $718
in 24 hours without paying for ads or an email list. You have this little subheading right here.
Obviously, this whole page, it's very salesy, it's very MMO, but this page converts like crazy. What
you guys want to do is have case study, exactly how I used this tool to generate, or just benefit,
without pain point. What your leads are going to want to achieve, whatever niche you're in,
without something that they want to avoid. Go in and replace the stuff on this page. Now,
the reason you want to do this is to make sure that you skyrocket your conversion rates
and you super pre-sell these leads before they go to your affiliate link,
and they get your vouch for this product.
Now, you may be wondering, well Matt, is that going to lower the amount of people who click
through to your affiliate offer? Well, yes and no. Maybe just a couple of people who are just really
lazy, they're not going to click through. But here's the thing, those people probably weren't
going to buy anyways, and if they do watch this video and they get your vouch for this product,
they are much more likely to go ahead and purchase the product because you're showing
them how it works. Basically, your leads are coming to this page from your solo ads,
or wherever you're driving traffic, and they're saying,
"You show me a pay stub for $72,000 on it, I quit my job right now and I work for you."
And you're using this case study funnel to say, "Hey listen, I quit." Makes sense,
right? Now what do you want to do for the case study video that goes on this page? Well,
it's fairly simple. If you're on a Windows computer, there's plenty of free screen recording
apps that you can use. If you're on a Mac, all you have to do is open up QuickTime player,
click on file and go to new screen recording, and you can actually record your screen with audio
right from the microphone on your computer. You don't need any crazy video editing skills, and you
don't need to be on camera if you don't want to. Though, I would recommend it, because it
probably will boost your conversions a little bit. People like interacting with real people, okay?
As I said, it's very salesy, it's very in your face. But I want to show you guys exactly how
I structured these videos. We have this cool little shot of me counting the money in the
beginning of the video. That really gets peoples' attention. After that, I show them exactly how
I use the tool, I show them the results that I got, and then a call to action, obviously,
to go ahead and click through to get instant access, which this button is going to lead to
your affiliate link. Now, you guys may notice that in all my case study videos, including
the one I showed you guys earlier, I always put this little timer in the bottom of the video.
Now, that's there for a very specific reason. This is called the cognitive completion bias in
your brain. I'm going to leverage that to get more sales. You guys may have noticed before,
you may weed through a sales funnel, and you see a progress bar along the top that completes the
further you go along in the funnel. That's tapping into a cognitive bias in your visitor's brain
that wants to see things completed. It's the same function as when you're on Instagram,
and you see some people put those fake little progress bars at the bottom of a video, it's much
more likely someone will follow through to the end of the video if they see that timer there.
Now, you guys can put this in there. I use Premiere Pro, but I'm sure whatever video
editor you're using, there's some simple way to put that in there. I highly recommend you guys
add that as well. Basically, the outline of your case study video should look something like this.
First things first, you want to make sure you have a hook in the beginning, something to really get
peoples' attention and keep them watching, in my example, obviously we have me counting the
physical money, and that's something people see in every video, they use screen shots and digital
stuff. It really gets peoples' attention, and they keep watching the rest of the case study video.
Next thing after that, you basically want to have a tutorial showing people how to use the actual
product that you're promoting. Excuse my sloppy mouse handwriting. You want to actually show
them how to use the tool to get the results that they're looking for. Then speaking of, you want to
make sure that you show them some of the results and really sell them on the benefits of using
the product and at the end, you want to close out with a very strong call to action or CTA,
as we'll call it, to click the button down below, which is going to link to your affiliate link.
Again, just quick recap. Hook them in the beginning, do something to get peoples'
attention. Do a tutorial of the product, when you want to be on-camera, when you just screen
record your computer, which is fine for software tools and products. Make sure you convince them
of the result that you've got using the product, and then a strong call to action to get them to
click the button and go to your affiliate link. Now, one thing I like to do on these
pages is actually set the call to action button to not show up until a later point in your video,
or maybe until the entire video is complete. You do that right inside of ClickFunnels,
you can have elements not show up for a certain time period. It's right there in your settings.
Now, let me quickly go over how to actually find winning affiliate offers to promote.
What I recommend you do is go onto your affiliate network of choice. We're using
JVZoo in this example because they mostly promote software products, which work great for these case
study funnels. But if you're promoting things from Click Bank, Warrior Plus, maybe a private
affiliate program like ClickFunnels, you guys get those recurring commissions every month,
go on there and sort the offers by best converting, especially if you're a beginner,
that's going to be the easiest way to find offers that are pretty simple and easy to promote.
Now something very important you want to do is make sure you're following up on all these
leads who opt in on your case study page with an email sequence. You guys can use any email
automation tool you want. There's Aweber, there's Convert Kit, there's MailChimp, there's Sendlane,
they're all basically the same. You guys hear me say all the time, don't get romantic about
the tools that you use, they're all the same thing at the end of the day. Or, you could also use your
ClickFunnels account where your actual case study funnel is to program email follow-ups as well.
If you go into your ClickFunnel settings, you see you could actually line up emails scheduled to go
out when someone opts in. Decide whatever tool you want to use, and the place you're going to
get the content to put in those emails is from the affiliate product creator. If we go back onto our
affiliate network, you guys are going to notice what's called an affiliate or JV page linked on
the affiliate offer pages. Now, this is where the affiliate product creators are going to give you
all the tools and resources you need to promote your product. Email swipes or email templates,
which they're called, go on there, copy and paste those, just put your own affiliate link in there.
You're going to get custom adds, custom video, social media posts. They're going to get you
everything you need to be equipped to promote their product. Okay, once you have all this set,
you chose an offer, you built your case study funnel, and you have your case study video
rocking and ready to go, how do you actually get buyer traffic into this funnel to start
generating commissions? Well, what we're going to be doing is leveraging what are called solo ads.
Solo ads are basically you buying slots on someone else's email list to promote your offer. Instead
of spending years building up a massive email list to promote your offers and your funnels to,
you're buying spaces on someone else's lists.
You guys are familiar with how influencer marketing works on something like Instagram
or YouTube, where you pay an influencer to promote your product to their existing followers.
This is the influencer marketing of email marketing, I guess you could say.
You're paying another marketer to send an email with your link to their list. Now,
the main website you're going to be using for this is called Udimi. You can click the link
down below, and that's actually going to give you $5 off your first solo ad. Yeah,
it's an affiliate link, so I'm going to get $5, too. It's kind of like a win-win. If you guys
want, a little bit of disclosure, I know some people get triggered about that for some reason.
I know I'm going to get $5 if you guys click the link. But what we're going to do is
navigate over to Udimi.com, and you simply want to go and try and find solo ad sellers
that are selling traffic in the same niche as your affiliate offer. As you can see,
we can sort by how much the cost per click is, this is how much they're going to charge per
click to your landing page and to your affiliate link. You can also sort by the number of buyers
who actually got sales from the promotions that they bought from the solo ad sellers.
For example, we'll go over here to Glen's offer. If you look up here, we can see how many return
buyers that Glen has had before, we can see that he has a ton of positive feedback, he typically
responds within an hour, and about 43% of people who buy solo ads from Glen's list actually make
sales. Now, one thing to keep in mind, if you're using solo ads consistently, after a while, you're
going to be using the same sellers over and over again. If someone's getting sales on your offers,
you're going to be consistently using their solo ads, and buying from them over and over again.
They're going to give you deals, you're going to build a relationship,
you're going to go on a couple dates, things are going to get pretty serious. Before you know it,
you're engaged and you've got a couple of kids and you have an affiliate marketing empire.
Now when you're first starting out, though, and you're trying to find good sellers,
Udimi gives you a couple of tools to filter through the people on here. Down below here,
you can see we're going to decide how many visitors we want, how many clicks through to
your offer. Then after a while, you're going to be able to calculate how much one visitor
is worth to you once you start to see how many sales you get from your affiliate offer.
You really do the math in your head. Another thing I highly recommend you to do is only
buy what's called prime traffic. The higher quality traffic that you buy from people,
sure, it's going to be a little bit more expensive,
but the conversion rate is going to be much higher. I'd recommend you buy prime traffic,
right in the beginning. Especially, if you have a smaller budget. Which again, I know, it's a
little bit ironic, you have a smaller budget, you're going to be spending a little bit more,
but you're going to get more results for the money that you're putting in. Make sure you're always
buying prime traffic from top tier countries, it is going to be worth it, take my word for it.
Now, Udimi offers some really great other features. Like you can save premade ad tech. Let's
say you're sending out the same promotion over and over again. You can save it in there instead
of copying and pasting it every time. You could add friends, you could message the solo ad buyers
and negotiate things and figure out when they're going to send it, maybe they'd actually help you
out with your copy sometimes. It's definitely the number one place I'd recommend to go buy
solo ads. You can see exactly how much it's going to cost right down here, you want to schedule it.
Then down here, you can actually decide the content that you want the solo ad seller to
blast out to their list. Now when you're giving them the link, like we went over earlier,
you want to make sure you have an opt in page that goes before your case study video. Because
you want to make sure that you're building your own email list to promote offers to,
from the solo ad sellers leads. When they send someone to a link,
it's going to go to your opt in page, where someone's going to enter their name and email.
Now you have the same lead that was on their list, then you can promote to them again and again.
Make sure you're sending your solo ad traffic to an opt in page. It's extremely important.
Don't just send them to the case study video page, and if they don't buy, you've lost them forever.
Make sure you can follow-up with them. That, guys, is essentially it. You can go out there,
steal my exact case study file that, again, is responsible for over a quarter million dollars
in pure profit affiliate sales over this past year, on one, single affiliate network. Start
buying some solo ads, building your own email list, and get your own affiliate commissions as
soon as tonight. Guys, again, as always, I really hope you appreciate this video. The next one's
going to be a little bit different. I'm going to do be doing more case study videos like this.
I know you guys like the affiliate marketing ones. But I am going to be making more e-commerce
videos, which is my main bread and butter business model that I use day in and day out. I'm
going to be doing more of those videos. As always, please, make sure you smash the like button down
