Josh Kulp went from earning nothing online to $15,000 a month net profit, and he did it in only 12 months. He earned $4,000 in his first month online.
What Josh does NOT do is affiliate marketing 101 – building information-rich, keyword-rich websites and populating them with affiliate links and AdSense ads.
He has a more efficient system which gets results faster. He creates websites that work so efficiently he can afford to buy traffic to them from a variety of sources.
The big attraction for his visitors is that he gives away gifts. You can see how he does it at his site NoCostGifts.com
Basically, he collects a fast growing list of email addresses, gives away products and rewards his members with points they can redeem.
He also owns several promotional mini-sites on which he runs offers.
I interviewed Josh last year and he's also been interviewed for the Secrets To Their Success private site.
Since then, many affiliates have been pestering him with questions, wanting to know exactly how he organizes such an efficient, profitable business.
So he's written an ebook combined with a complete mentoring program.
It's NOT your average affiliate manual
There's no fluff, no waffly theory. He just describes what he does, in simple language.
If you have any questions, he'll answer them for you.
For example, he gives tips on the sort of gifts you can give away.
“These gifts can be whatever you choose to give away, whatever interests you,” he says, “toys, DVDs, CDs, video games, cash, long distance calling cards, gift cards, magazine subscriptions, electronics, hardware, books…”
Members sign up to be on his list, and they earn points when they take certain actions – such as applying for one of his gifts.
Josh has partnered with dozens of advertisers who provide special offers for his members to choose from. Each time one of his members selects one of these offers, Josh receives a commission.
This 57-page book is not for beginners. Josh says he uses website templates to make designing websites easier. He also recommends hiring a programmer from RentaCoder or elance to do some of the work, and tells you how to do that.
He shows you screenshots of his NoCostGifts admin area, which the programmer you hire can use as a guide. He also shows you examples of tracking techniques his programmer uses.
Because he uses “incentivized” offers, he needs to choose affiliate networks which permit them. He tells you which affiliate networks he uses.
He doesn't optimize his sites for search engines.
He's always used paid advertising to attract traffic. He describes the four types of advertising he uses.
He also uses what he calls a “co-registration path” which significantly lowers the cost of gaining new members. He describes how he does this and tells you which co-reg company he uses.
He aims to have 20% to 40% of visitors to his site sign up as members.
To achieve such a high conversion rate, you need a highly effective landing page. Josh explains how he designs his.
Next, Josh gives 10 pages of tips on running the business efficiently.
He ends by saying that if you have any questions at all, you can ask them on his private forum where he'll personally help you.
That's a very rare offer.[UPDATE: This book is no longer available.]
Wouldn't it be fantastic if all ebook authors provided such a service?
This book covers totally new ground I haven't seen discussed in any affiliate marketing manual.
That's not surprising when you consider that Josh says…
“…the only Internet marketing
product I've read is my own.”
And he makes $15k a month. Nice going!
This book is suitable for affiliates who are ready to tackle affiliate marketing 102. Or perhaps it's 103.
This is truly great, original stuff.[UPDATE: This book is no longer available.]
