“1) 9 of my first 10 days on TikTok were in the red...
2) Have had a bunch of camps fail too... “
Emotional snowflakes beware, these next few words may make ye feel all warm and fuzzy inside:
“Also... as far as random thoughts go... I could not even imagine trying to do this were it not for STM and ScottyG and zeno and cassshy and jaybot and everyone else... hard to even put into words what a huge advantage it is being part of a community like this... “
Many newbies ask questions like “how much can I make as an affiliate marketer?”
More than 80% of brands are now using affiliates to promote their products. So there is a lot of money to be made as an affiliate in 2021. (For some of the highest-converting offers, check out VIP Response.)
There are stories like how Tom Dupuis’s annual affiliate income went from > $20k to $150k over the span of a few years. Then there are stories of new affiliates struggling to turn a profit.
The differences in affiliate income can be large, with the average affiliate income being $20-30k per year.
BloggingX estimates the average conversion rate to be 1%-5%. Some affiliates are happy with less than 1%, while others are dissatisfied with anything below 25%. Each case is different.
It Takes Effort
Some beginners don’t realize that large-scale affiliate marketing requires time, work, and money. Investment is always involved.
That means learning as much as you can about your traffic source, finding your vertical and niche, trying different offers to identify the best one, and scaling top performers. Financial investment is of course also required.
Tips For Newbies
Here are some tips:
Start with something that has an easy conversion flow, even if it comes with a lower payout.
Ask your AM for offers that have proven performance. For some of the highest-converting offers, check out VIP Response.
Set a sufficient budget to allow for scaling.
Continue to test and compare. Split testing is essential.
Invest in the right tools, such as a tracker and spy tool.
Ever thought ye could launch on Amazon with little to no cash-money?
Without putting money in Jeff’s pockets?
Go follow @wisdompower and see if he can make it happen.
FBM (Fullfilled by Merchant) all the way babeh.
He’s going to be using local merchants to fulfil his orders, which means it may just even be cheaper and a hell of a lot less hassle than Alibaba.
Oh and by the way, inside this thread ye’ll find one of the most interesting ecom insights of the year...
“I don't even think it's the tracking, CPMs in USA have gone from $20-$25 to $50+ with worse converting traffic, using video ads we've tested hundreds of creatives but even with a 9%+ CTR a $55 cpm makes it +1.5$ per click... conversion sucks, weird traffic stalls.” - @downbytheriver
Is anyone even making FB work lately or is the game all TikTok?
