What does it take to be a super affiliate?
You’ll find the answer to that question and hundreds more in Ros Gardner’s “Super Affiliate Handbook: How I Made $436,797 In One Year Selling Other People’s Stuff”.
Rosalind’s success as one of the major-league super affiliates and the success of the Handbook is all in the details. She writes in a clear and concise style and presents the facts in a down-to-earth, no BS manner that enables an absolute beginner or a seasoned veteran of affiliate marketing to learn what it takes to become a super affiliate.
She knows her stuff because she’s been there herself.
She teaches other affiliates a multitude of marketing methods including PPC, email and list building, so the Super Affiliate Handbook is as much about what NOT to do as it is about what to do to boost yourself into the super affiliate stratosphere.
Her focus is on choosing affiliate programs carefully, building simple but professional sites, writing compelling text and building trust from your visitors.
Ros makes it very clear that you have to get the details right first time, every time – that’s how she generates over $1,000 a day in affiliate income.
She describes her systems and how she manages to generate conversion rates of between 2.5% and 6% (and higher!), when the average affiliate considers 1% a successful conversion rate.
Rosalind updates her Handbook regularly, so whenever you get it, you can rely on getting truly valuable, up-to-date instructions on tools and methods that are working for her right now.
Whether you are just starting out in the Internet marketing industry or have been around for a while waiting for that magic formula that is going to drive more traffic and more sales conversions to your site, don’t do another thing until you’ve read the Super Affiliate Handbook.[UPDATE, 2013: Rosalind has vastly improved and expanded her affiliate handbook, turning into a highly professional instructional course, with tutorials, short videos and screenshots, all in a logical, methodical order, so you can either work your way through the step-by-step instructions and videos, or jump to a particular topic you want to learn more about. She calls the course Affiliate Blogger Pro. I strongly recommended it. Here's our review of Affiliate Blogger Pro.]
