Today Im coming to you obviously from Paris France. Behind me is the Eiffel tower and this is going to be the first of a two part series where we talk more about affiliate marketing specifically how to create and run an affiliate program for your business so you can generate more money and it wont cost you money. Its a great way to go. We have been fortunate to have been able to generate millions of dollars from our affiliate program and Im going to give you some tips and show you how you can do the same for yourself as well. Step one we are going to talk about setting up an affiliate program. Now my guess is if you are watching this video the odds are you do not have an affiliate program. Most people we polled we know that they want one but they do not have one. There are basically three ways you can set up an affiliate program. One is you can do it internally and track everything yourself. This would be suicide it wont work these days because your affiliates will want to track their progress. They will want to be able to see how many leads they sent you their EPC the amount of money they are generating per lead. They are going to want to track their payment and so on and so forth. So step one or option one wont work. Option two is using a shopping cart system. There are a myriad of different options out there. My favorite three are One Shopping Cart Infusionsoft and there is a new frontrunner called iNovo. And I will put some resource links below you can check them out. They are all good. Now you can set up yourself or 123Employee Virtual Assistant can do it for you. Either way it is not too tough to do and you will get that program up and running. Now your third option is joining an affiliate network. A good example of an affiliate network is the biggest network in the world which is ClickBank. Its the biggest affiliate network in the world thats great for low price offers. We have used them before but we are not exclusive to ClickBank. Tell you a little story when I first got started I was very confused as to how to start an affiliate program. I really did not know much about it. I remember I think I went to an affiliate conference in Vegas and that even got me more confused. But what I came away with in that conference was that you have to join a big affiliate network so that the big affiliates know and trust that network and they will work with you. I did not do that I actually ended up using a shopping cart system and its worked out fine for us. Like I said we generate a ton of money and we got great results and you can too. So you do not have to join an affiliate network. I would suggest using the second option which is a shopping cart system. So the choice is up to you. You will see some resources below. Step one is just set up your affiliate program. You have got to do it take that first step so you have one. Now I will tell you I have many many friends that have started affiliate programs for their company. They have hundreds if not thousands of affiliates and they have generated almost zero dollars from it. Yet we have had massive success so in part two of this video which we will show you next week I will share with you some hot tips on how to super charge your results so that you can actually generate a ton of money from your affiliate program.
