Recently I ran a webinar on one of my favourite online success topics, 'affiliate marketing'. The 60-odd guests online loved learning about how you can monetize your website, blog or email broadcast through the inclusion of banners, buttons and text links by sourcing tracking code from any one of a number of professional affiliate networks, some of which are based here in Australia and some of which are overseas based sites.
On the webinar, I shared the example of my friend Leah Squire of byokids.com.au – who I met at a business awards ceremony back in 2007. We’d both won our respective categories and were on a super high, and when we discovered we were both based on the Sunshine Coast we vowed to stay in touch. I was honoured when Leah asked me to write a foreward in her book Marketing with No Money which came out (when) and love catching up with Leah from time to time to compare notes on what mad-capped entrepreneurial pursuit we each have going on.
I last had Leah speak at a Web Wednesday event back in around 2009, and at it she shared how she built her site up to net her approximately $60k passive income from it per year.
If you think that’s impressive, you’ll be even more impressed to hear that she told me on a phone call last week that she now earns $100k passively a year from affiliate marketing on the site!!!
If you’d like to find out more about affiliate networking, and meet Leah who is a super down to earth mother of two, who enjoys a great lifestyle jet-setting around the world while she runs her online business, we’d love you to join us for our bi-monthly Web Wednesday event which is taking place this Wednesday 25 July. You have the choice of joining us live in person or via livestream. The livestream will broadcast direct to our Facebook page on www.facebook.com/thecreativecollective from 6pm on the evening.
At the same event, we will also showcase Zane McIntyre, an ex graphic designer who dabbled as an affiliate, got frustrated and decided to start his own affiliate network - Commission Factory along with a couple of mates. Zane will be explaining how his company are capitalising on the growing affiliate industry, which is set to double from $2bn turnover globally to $4bn turnover by 2016.
And that's not to mention James Klobasa, an understated guy who happens to conduct very over-stated product launches for some very big names in the online world, including a recent deal with US online sensation Loral Langemeier.
Come along the event and find out:• what is affiliate marketing and how you can start using it right now
