We talked the other day about “old-school” affiliate marketing, and why it doesn’t work anymore.
For example, if you’re paying for traffic the old way, and you want to compete in BIG markets, you also need a BIG budget.
With Google AdWords, you could easily pay $3 to $5 a click… or even up to 10 bucks — just for a simple click — if the market is really competitive.
Ouch! You better have a damned good landing page if you’re paying that much, or you can go broke… fast (and many marketers have).
But here’s some good news:
Today Mike Filsaime released another free video on Affiliate Marketing 2.0… that’s the NEW way of doing it effectively.
It’s a case study where you’ll see an actual campaign, promoting one of the hottest video games on the market.
If you’re not a gamer (and I have to admit I’m not), you should know that’s a HUGELY competitive market to go for.
But Mike took one day, spent less than 9 cents a click, and walked away with success:
A fresh list of new email subscribers, AND a nice profit for a product he doesn’t even own.
That’s all with no testing or optimizing of the campaign whatsoever.
Imagine what you could do if you spent a little more time on it!
Oh, yeah… and Mike invites you to rip off the exact campaign if you like.
If free traffic is more your taste, the next video will deal with that. But I’m sure you’ll agree that paying a little bit is cool, as long as you make a profit.
(If you grew up in the ’70s, like Mike and I did, you’ll appreciate his Donnie and Marie allegory on the topic.)
So watch Mike’s free case-study video and steal whatever inspiration you like from it!
Keep Unwrapping Your Success!
