SPI 186: How to Become a Successful Affiliate Marketer

By Pat Flynn on

This week, it’s just you and me. I wanted to take time to explore something that’s a little mysterious to a lot of folks in the business world. It has also been the foundation of my success online: affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing can be a game-changer for you and your business; it was for mine. Affiliate programs allow you to make a profit from other products online while forging new relationships with those products’ creators. This happens without any of the customer service or payment management that comes with traditional business.

Today, I’m going to cover my top nine rules for becoming an affiliate marketer, plus the three crucial tools every affiliate marketer should have in their toolbox. I’ll also dispel some affiliate myths and pass along some words of wisdom for folks just getting started with affiliate programs.

In addition, I have a special invitation for you. I’m looking for someone to be a future guest on the Smart Passive Income Podcast. There are two kinds of folks in particular that I’m looking for—people who’ve used my advice and seen success as a result, and people who feel they could use some one-on-one help from me when it comes to their business. If you fit either of these descriptions, go ahead and send me an email at [email protected] with the subject line, “Guest for Podcast 186.” I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

I’m so excited to share my affiliate marketing experience with you guys. It has made such a huge impact on my business, and I can’t wait for it to change yours, too. Let’s do it!
