A UK affiliate marketing coach seems to be quite a tall order as we seem to be quite thin on the ground.
I guess I fit the bill as I’m from the UK (Scotland), although I am now based on the other side of the pond in Texas.
You might be wondering what a post about a UK affiliate marketing coach is doing on a property Investment website.
Well, you’ve landed on the site that I created in 2012, at the very start of my affiliate marketing career, in the UK real estate investing niche.
I had just built up a sizable property portfolio, and sold the property management company I’d built, and was looking for a new challenge.
Turned out it was pretty successful, and before long I was topping a few of the affiliate leaderboards in that niche.
If you're landing on this page and you're not sure what affiliate marketing is, then here's a quick summary. If you know already, then you can skip to the next section.
Affiliate marketing just means that you receive a commission for finding customers for products that you don't own.
Amazon has an affiliate program for example. You can get a small percentage -- I think around 3% -- of each sale if someone buys something on the site through your affiliate link.
That's obviously physical products, but I prefer to promote digital products -- courses and sometimes software -- that pay commissions of at least a 40% or 50% and sometimes even more.
I developed a real passion for the affiliate marketing business. I think it appeals to me because I'm an introvert. The property business is really a "people" business, not a houses business. That's why I was a bit burned out after selling my property management business.
Affiliate marketing allowed me to work from home and not talk to a soul all day if I didn't want to. I know that's not everyone's idea of fun, but at that moment in my life, that's exactly what I needed!
There are a bunch of other benefits of affiliate marketing too:
Many businesses have an entry requirement of thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. But you can literally get started with affiliate marketing for zero investment.
There are a couple of software tools that you need: a funnel builder, and an email autoresponder.
Paid versions of those will run you around $100 per month, or if you don't mind doing a little more setup, you can get free versions of those for $0.
You will need to pay for the free version eventually -- when you get above a few hundred email subscribers. But you should be making some money by then, so not a problem.
If you're blogging, then you'll need a domain name and hosting, but those can be found pretty cheap too, as little as a few bucks a month.
There are hundreds of different ways to generate traffic with affiliate marketing. I specialize in "free" traffic, and there are dozens of methods within the free traffic category.
All these methods can be a bit bewildering for a newcomer. That's why I developed a method of deciding on the best traffic strategy for your personality and other constraints. It's nothing fancy, but it's honestly something I've never seen anyone else train on. And that's a shame because choosing the wrong traffic strategy for your personality can spell the death of your marketing career before it has even begun.
After mastering affiliate marketing, I went on to create a few digital products of my own too, and even a website building SAAS for property investors.
Now, after over ten years in the business, I offer affiliate marketing coaching to people all over the world who want to start or grow their business online.
I specialize in the high ticket affiliate marketing realm, as I believe that selling expensive products both helps your customers achieve a more meaningful transformation, and because $7 commissions ain’t gonna help you retire anytime soon!
