How To Help And Find New Affiliates

500 affiliates.

Wouldn’t it be nice?

I was recently inspired by something Rick Kaselj mentioned.

He wrote that he had contacted over 500 affiliates for his Fix Your Back Pain launch. That’s incredible.

Let’s say that 400 of those folks make just an average of 3 sales…that’s still 1200 customers.

And then the remaining 20% of affiliates (the top 100) will provide 80% of the results or more.

It’s going to be a big launch for Rick, and it’s all because he did the work. Same with Virtual Mastermind member, Forest Vance. He’s here today to give you a great tip on working with new affiliates.

Alright, I’m off to another amazing 1-Day Mastermind meeting with Bedros Keuilian here in Denver. And then tomorrow is our Toys for Tots annual charity drive, followed by the ETR Christmas Party.

Amazing times!

And brilliant advice below… – Craig

How to Help New Affiliates
By Forest Vance

I have been doing this as much as possible, and it seems to be working well to build relationships and slowly but surely get new customers.

It will really help those of you that are especially just starting out, and maybe have made a few sales on your own, but want to start getting your name out there etc.

BTW, this is basically what Craig told me to do when I joined the Mastermind a little over a year ago …

It is how I built momentum then and will keep doing it as I continue to try and get in front of as many people as possible and grow my network.

So I approach a blog owner that has a business that would be a good compliment and fit for folks that are into my type of products (kettlebell training stuff).

I reach out with a helping hand, compliment them, etc. … even maybe buy their product and use it and give some feedback on it.

Then I see if they accept guest blog posts and/or videos. I do a custom video and blog post for them.

THEN – this is the part that seems to be working well – I set up a special landing page and discount and hoplink for their readers only. I don’t even ask, I just do it. I just include it with a little pitch at the end of the post.

So, doing the custom video and blog post seems to

#1 – typically convert well for them


#2 – I think makes folks a little more likely to help since you’ve gone to more trouble than most people would.

Hope this is helpful!


Thank you sir, you are a real go-giver.

We should all help Forest out in return,
