I promised I’d talk about how to list your products, CD’s, ebooks, DVD’s, recordings of your Teleseminars, interviews and even your book on the various Affiliate sites.

The most common site is Clickbank. They are not the easiest site to deal with and not the friendliest. I’m not in favor of Clickbank because they charge 55% of your sales price. Then you’ll need to pay the Affiliate 50%, so you can see why I don’t think it’s such a great idea to use them. You end up in the hole every time you make a sale with Clickbank believing that you’ll buy into it for the sake of increasing your database for future sales.

The second most popular is CommissionJunction they have a much more liberal attitude when it comes to the person who owns the intellectual property.

Please do your due diligence in investigating which sites you’d like to list your material on. You might want to refer to a site Here’s a list of some of the Affiliate Sites.

So, whatever you do, get started!

I’m sure you’ve heard of Affiliates, but have you figured out how to make Affiliate programs work for you? Typically Affiliate programs are designed so you can find a product on Clickbank.com or CommissionJunction.com, send it to your database and make a commission (25-50%) from what your database sells.

But let’s turn the tables on the Affiliate program. By now you should have your Facebook account and have been adding friends who are authors and in the media. You can build some great relations, interviews and instigate impressive Affiliate Programs.

I also use SelfGrowth.com and Amazon (search) to find authors who have books related to my topic. You can set up interviews so you are interviewing them and they are interviewing you. (refer to the July 6th posting for more information)

Imagine how you can increase your database by having each author send a notice to their database that they are being interviewed by you. Their database is sent to your capture page to get the information and you now have their details in your database. After both interviews, you each send a notice to your databases promoting each others books and voila, you have a great interview product for your membership site, new names in your database and you’ve sold more books!
