There are countless affiliate programs to promote out there, especially in the IM space. So I definitely appreciate it when a product owner will go the extra mile and offer some special incentives to promote their products.
One of my favorites, is the lifetime commissions model. This means that if a visitor buys a product through your link, you will get a commission for that product as well as ANY future product that the visitor makes in the future.
As an affiliate this is great way to expand your earnings provided the product owner meets the following criteria:
- Reputable, doesn’t spam, and someone I believe in.
- Offers several quality current products, with new products in the pipeline.
- Knows how to cross sell his products
Below are 4 affiliate programs like this that meet this criteria.
Oz – AddictiveText
I actually first became aware of the lifetime commissions model after purchasing Oz’s RAMOS Report from the WarriorForum. After I read it, I started to promote it and it allows me to provide a good demonstration of the power of lifetime commissions. Here are some of my stats from promoting it.
I’ve sent 339 visitors to promote his $1.79 RAMOS report.
I’ve sold 61 copies which has netted me $48.19 in commissions.
10 of these people went on to buy his QFactor report, which adds up to an extra $150 in commissions.
And 1 person bought Oz’s WPEasyContent for another $38.50 commission.
So that’s an extra $188 in commissions selling a $1.79 report where I didn’t have to lift a finger.
Total that up, and it’s 72 sales / 339 visitors = 21.24% conversion rate and a generous $1.43 per click. Not too shabby, right?
Oz has quite a few other products to promote as well, and his WSO’s are pretty easy sells since there’s a lot of social proof in those threads to help you out.
James Schramko – Super Fast Affiliate
James has one of the best affiliate programs I’ve seen. First of all, he’s a name that most people in the IM space have heard of, and he has a great reputation that people trust. Not only that, but he has a solid stable of quality products.
I recently bought his Traffic Grab course, which I thought was a really solid guide for generating traffic. There’s also the popular SuperFastResults Coaching forum you can promote which offers recurring commissions.
What’s nice about James’ affiliate program is that it’s very easy to start promoting his stuff. If you send visitors to his Internet Marketing Speed blog, you’ll get $1 for every one of them who signs up for his free report. Then all you have to do is wait for James to do his thing and convert those visitors into sales for you.
Shane Melaugh – SwissMadeMarketing
Shane is one of my favorite marketers, mainly because of his “tell it like it is” IM product reviews. His blog, IM Impact is a must read, especially if you’re interested in SEO and link building. He has some really nice products, including Backlink Battleplan and Ghost URL which I’ve purchased myself and have been quite happy with.
The only real issue I have with Shane is that I’m not sure he’s aggressive enough with cross promoting his products as I rarely get any emails from him.
But everything else is in place, and he’s built up quite a loyal following which you can leverage to help sell his products.
Dan Becker and Rachel Rofe – Earn1KADay
I don’t have as much experience with Earn1KaDay as I do with the other 3. But I have heard a lot of good things about the Earn1kADay forums from people I trust.
Their affiliate program has tons and tons of products, including Jason Fladlien’s WP Twin which is an awesome product for
cloning your wordpress sites.
The easiest way to get started with them is to send traffic to the <aclass=”clicky_log_outbound” target=”_blank” href=”/go/earn1kadayblog”>Earn 1k A Day blog or their 34 Free Report bundle. If your visitors like what they see, then you could earn yourself a nice commission.
Hopefully you can see how the lifetime commissions model can really boost your earnings. If there are some other good affiliate programs that offer lifetime commissions that I’ve missed, please feel free to let me know about them in the comments.
