Well I am going to date myself but do you remember the song by Three Dog Night – it was called “ONE” and the line One is a Lonely Number. For all of you that want a walk down memory lane – watch the video below.
Well now you will see where the “ONE” comes from – if you are a person that can relate with any of the above – maybe it’s time to back up and reevaluate what you are doing. When I first started as an affiliate, I found myself joining many programs and then not knowing which one to promote first.
My advice to you is to step back, look at all your affiliate programs you are in no matter what they are and ask yourself some things. Break down your list into sites that I am upgraded in vs you are a free member of. Do you have a monthly upgrade or do you have a lifetime membership. Now research and see what your commissions are in each of the upgraded programs you are in. Got that info yet?
Ok do you know which if any of these programs you have gotten referrals in? Have you been tracking to know what page got you the referrals. Did you connect with your referrals that you did get – do they know you are their person to go to. You would be surprised how many times I ask this and 80% of the time people have no clue who they joined under and have never heard from the person they joined under.
Once you have done this – what did you learn? If you listen to your referral, you will find out why they joined under you and you can start developing a game plan. Was it because you had a branded page, did you design your own page, which page did they join from and what kind of help do they need.
Getting a layout of your game plan now? Well you should be – you should know by your tracking and talking with your referral what worked to get them to the site. Now that you have that, then start with the ONE site with the most referrals and get out there and promote that ONE site for the next 30 days doing all the things that you have just found out – why your referrals signed up, what page worked, from tracking what sites worked.
If you found that it was a safelist, mailer, text ad site etc., then you may want to join a few more of these type of sites and get your ads out there. Use your ONE ad and put it in everyone of these sites that you belong to and just repeat it for the next 30 days.
Now I know you all are thinking about what about all the other sites that I’m an affiliate of – well they have to go on the back burner for right now. You can NOT promote multiple sites and get results until you have some kind of game plan on what it working and get that game plan down – once you are getting signup from what you are doing – then you add a 2nd site – and do what they call a rinse & repeat,
Is this going to work for every site that you are an affiliate at – the answer is no – but at least you have an outline of what to do to get your game plan – and then tweak it for each site. Just remember ONE is a lonely number but get a game plan on that ONE site and you will be able to move on after that.
