Associate Programs Newsletter #452
I'm sending this out early as I'm flying to New Zealand shortly for a family holiday.
We've rented a house on Coronet Peak in Queenstown. The heart of Lord of the Rings Country. They also make amazing Pinot Noir around there too.

1) Motivated by dreams plus a few new strategies
There is nothing better than an amazing reward to drive your motivation.
My wife is starting a little online business while trying to juggle two very young and energetic kids.
To keep up her motivation, she created for herself a big goal which is based on a dream she's had since she was 16.
She aims to take her Mom and Sister on a vacation to Scotland purely from the profits of her new business.
Of course, flying first class. :)
I think it's a fantastic approach. Using a tangible reward that motivates her to keep pressing on, even when she's super tired at the end of the day.
She actually got the idea from another Super Affiliate Jeremy Palmer.
Jeremy used to race bicycles, and still loves the sport.
The other day he was telling me about an affiliate site he is working on that promotes a product that teaches people how to speak French.
He was sharing with me how he plans on paying for a trip to see the Tour De France this year purely from the profits of this affiliate site.
Pretty cool huh.
I just love how affiliate marketing can make little dreams come true. . . often while we sleep!
As Jeremy and I discussed this new site, he shared with me some really interesting new strategies that are working VERY well.
Now traditionally, Jeremy is a PPC guy, so our conversation normally gravitates towards PPC related strategies.
However, he was sharing with me how he is using free video and social media sites like YouTube to firstly get traffic and secondly pre-sell affiliate offers.
Even for competitive, targeted keywords.
Take a look at this example.
Go to Google and type in “rosetta stone french”…
Look for a video result that has a yellow background and a guys face (that's Jeremy).
Here's a screenshot for a quick view:
This isn't a low competition keyword either… There are over 60,000 unique searches a month for this keyword. It's also a commercial keyword, which means there is a lot of intent to buy.
What's even more impressive than a page one search result is the high quality traffic you can get from these social media sites.
Jeremy mentioned that YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and other top social sites often send more traffic than the search engines to his portfolio of sites.
Remember he's a million dollar plus affiliate.
He made a big call and said that after seeing great results from these efforts he's convinced that this traffic strategy is one of the biggest opportunities for affiliates since Google.
Coming from Jeremy, that should be enough to prick your ears up.
Based on a lot of his experiences he has put together a training program that teaches exactly what he has been doing.
What I really love about this training is that it's based on a real life case study, unlike most training products.
So you get to see the nitty gritty and how it really works in practice, rather than just vague theory.
If you're looking for a step-by-step process, I highly recommend this inexpensive training.
Oh. . . I asked Jeremy if he would mind offering a discount for Associate Programs readers. He very kindly complied so now it's even cheaper! :)
Use this special link to get it for 50% OFF here:
Because it's a big discount, we'll just keep this link live for a few days so it doesn't get spread around.
So if this is of interest to you, grab it.
I hope you win big with this info and it helps you achieve your little (or big) dreams.
2) An amazing free video marketing service
Obviously a big part of Jeremy's strategy relies a lot on creating quick videos, and then of course getting them out to all the video sharing sites like YouTube, Viddler, Metacafe, MySpace, Blip.tv and the 25+ new sites that are emerging.
Now this is where you might run into problems when marketing with video as Jeremy teaches.
When doing article marketing, it's not too difficult to get your content out to all the article directories. Sure, it takes a bit of time, but the actual upload is super quick.
However, when you're trying to do the same with video, it will take forever and if you're not on an unlimited Internet plan, it will cost the earth.
This amazing and yes free service takes your video and then distributes it to all the major video sharing sites online.
Not only that, it gives you awesome stats on which of your videos are being watched, how often and where.
Think about the difference between doing this manually (like your competitors probably are) and doing it with TubeMogul.
All for free. For you at least. TubeMogul is a Silicon Valley start-up, so I guess the venture capitalists are paying for it on your behalf. :)
Check it out here: https://www.TubeMogul.com
It really is a must have resource for your video marketing efforts.
