05 Jul Setting Up Your Newsletter For Maximum Profit!
There are hundreds of affiliate programs and products that offer commission out there but we only recommend a select few and here’s why…
1) You need someone who has been around in this market for a long period of time and has a good track record of releasing new products for you to promote and paying commissions on time, every time.
2) You need quality products that are tested & proven to work through the use of hundreds of people and case studies of people using them.
3) You want to be paid lifetime commissions on all of your customers you refer which means that if they make another sale on one of their product to that person that you are also going to get paid on that sale.
You might be wondering where you could possibly find affiliate programs out there that match these three strict criteria but the good news is that we have found them for you.
We have four awesome affiliate programs that satisfy all of the criteria above and all have several products for you to promote so that you’ll never run out of things to sell and make money on.
The first is the Internet Marketing Center’s affiliate program.
You can signup for their affiliate program by clicking here
This company has been around for a long time and is one of the pioneers of Internet Marketing. Founded by Corey Rudl who sadly passed away a couple of years ago, it is still a force to be reckoned with and still offers tons of highly sought after and well converting products including recurring income products which pay you monthly.
The second is SiteSell.com’s affiliate program.
You can signup for their affiliate program by clicking here
This company which is run by Founder Ken Evoy is one of the best ways that an aspiring online business owner can get started through it’s SiteBuildIt! product. The product is an easy sell and pays hefty commissions. You will also find loads of great training in the affiliate area to help you sell more product and make more commissions.
The third is Surefire Marketing’s affiliate program.

This company is owned and operated by Yanik Silver which has been around for ages. He sells a wide range of quality Internet Marketing products that are proven to sell well and are like by loads of people online.
The fourth is Liz Tomey’s affiliate program.
You can signup for their affiliate program by clicking here
Liz offers many Internet marketing and PLR products as well as several niche products. You will have no problem finding something here to offer to your list. There are also some great monthly recurring commissions available.
Now with these four affiliate programs you have access to dozens of products. These are the highest quality products on the Internet and are offered by people that care not only about their customers but also their affiliates.
What you want to do to integrate these into your newsletter issues is as follows…
After signing up for the four affiliate programs mentioned above you will receive e-mails from the programs that tell you where to get sales tools such as ads and your links from.
Click these links, select a few products you want to promote and get your affiliate link to use so your sales are tracked.
The next step is actually quite easy…
You want to get some text from the affiliate programs (an ad that all of these programs offer you in your affiliate center) and use it as the P.P.S. of some of your messages.
You will notice that each of your issues has an article, a sign off line and a P.S. at the end; you want to add your short ad plus link on line space below the P.S.
Halimbawa, you might have an article that ends like this…
“Have a great day, YOUR NAME
P.S. Don’t forget to use the information in this article because it has the power to greatly increase the power of your business.
P.P.S. If you would like to jump start your business even more, you will definitely want to take a look at this page. You’ll find advanced information, secrets and ways of making even more money in your online business…
Take notice of the bold portion which is what you are going to add to the issues of your newsletters.
Now here are a few rules to live by when doing this so that you get the biggest bang out of your advertisements and don’t offend anyone.
1) Don’t advertise in every issue. You don’t want to look like an advertising factory with your only intention being to get money from these people. While that may be your intention, the people on your list don’t need to know that.
I would recommend that you give 2 pieces of ad free content for every one piece that has a recommendation in it. If you want to advertise more, I wouldn’t recommend any more than one advertisement per one piece of content.
2) Make sure the product you are recommending is directly related to the articles. If you are recommending a search engine course to someone trying to learn about video on their site, they aren’t going to be responsive.
With the affiliate programs you’ve been given access to in this startup guide, you will never be at a loss for a product to promote. There are so many products in these affiliate programs that you can always closely match one of them to your article content and make some money from that recommendation.
Now grab your newsletters, drop in your affiliate links as described above and put them into your auto responder to automate your newsletter for as many year as you would like depending on your publishing schedule!
To Your Success!
