SPI 293: My Top Performing Affiliate Marketing Products, and Why They Performed So Well

SPI 293: My Top Performing Affiliate Marketing Products, and Why They Performed So Well

By Pat Flynn on

This month is affiliate marketing month, and we’ve covered a lot of ground so far. We’ve talked about strategies—long and short term—and last week we even talked about the dark side of affiliate marketing and how to avoid it. But this week we’re keeping it a little lighter: I’m sharing my top performing affiliate marketing products (that aren’t mine) and breaking down exactly why they’ve performed so well.

These products are all fantastic tools that I’ve recommended over the years. They’ve all done well for various reasons, but there are some common threads. These patterns fall right in line with a lot of the rules we’ve talked about, as far as how to win with affiliate marketing. These are great case studies that really embody what we’ve been talking about for the last couple of weeks.

This episode is all about the personal experience I’ve had putting my affiliate marketing strategies into practice. Each of these affiliate products succeeded as a result of careful strategizing and planning. A lot of the strategies that I’ll be explaining here could seriously boost your own affiliate marketing success, so get out your notebook or note-taking app, and let’s get started!
