Associate Programs Newsletter #51
1. The perfect revenue sharing program
This week, virtually the whole newsletter is devoted to a new two-tier program which offers a highly recommended product, an amazingly cheap price, commissions for life – and a site which is obviously designed to SELL.
Could they come any better than this?
1. The perfect revenue sharing program
For about a year I've been collecting facts in preparation for writing an article called “How to create the perfect revenue sharing program”.
I don't need to write that article now. Ken Evoy hasn't just written the article – he's created the program, too.
Recently I've been calling Marlon Sanders' site which sells “The Amazing Formula” probably the most persuasive on the Net. Well, Ken Evoy's new site leaves Marlon's for dead.
“We've studied every affiliate program out there,” Ken says. “One way or another, affiliates are basically building a house on a foundation of sand.”
Ken has set a standard against which all new revenue sharing programs will be compared.
In a hurry? Rush on over to the magic URL:
Ken Evoy's 5 Pillar Program
Ken has created what he calls “The 5 Pillar Program”, which is built upon:
1. Outstanding product line.
Ken's book, “Make Your Site Sell”, is merely the foundation for an extensive product line. Every product is aimed at helping entrepreneurs and small businesses sell on the Net. Sign up, and you'll earn commissions on all of them.
2. High first commission.
It's as generous as any on the Net. As well, Ken offers amazing value – his book costs only $24.95 (Canadian) – or $17.09 (US), so it is guaranteed to sell strongly.
3. Lifetime commission for referred customers.
That customer “belongs” to you forever. Yes, the data is captured in every way imaginable, not just with cookies.
4. Lifetime affiliate team under you.
You earn commissions on all THEIR sales.
5. Long-term protection. Limited number of affiliates.
“We want you to make serious money, long-term – so we limit the number of affiliates,” Ken says. This rewards talented, hard-working partners who dedicate time to succeeding. It discourages the “short-term-burst then make-money-forever” approach.

Amazing stack of testimonials
I've read Ken Evoy's book and I've been waiting eagerly for Ken's permission to tell you how good “Make Your Site Sell” is.
However, here's an opinion from an expert – someone who knows a LOT more about marketing on the Net than I do.
“I just read the book and found that it is the BEST information on the subject of ‘how to make your site sell' that I have EVER read,” Matt Hockin of the highly respected Multimedia Marketing Group told I-Sales Digest.
“It's in Adobe PDF format and is full of helpful links to resources on the Web. The book covers everything you need to know from beginning to end about making your site sell. It's very thorough and I highly recommend it.”
It would be hard to find a stronger testimonial than that – but it's just one of a series of rave reviews at Ken's site.
You've forgotten the URL already? Here it is:
Ken Evoy, author of “Make Your Site Sell”, is a Canadian physician who formerly taught and practiced emergency medicine at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
He and his wife designed toys and games and sold 23 of their inventions to large companies around the world, generating millions of dollars in royalty revenues.
“Thanks to toys and games, medicine is my part-time hobby that I still love,” Ken says.
In late 1996, Ken “accidentally” became interested in the Internet. He had begun writing a computer program for an investing hobby that started from a rather unusual theory.
In the six years before that, he had developed a successful investing strategy in a highly specialized niche market. Despite using the strategy only infrequently, he turned a $5,000 experimental stake into more than $150,000.
So Ken gathered all his loose-strewn notes and rough database and converted that chaos into the “ultimate software,” originally intended for his own use.
However, he was captivated by the Internet and decided to try to sell his “niche-investing” software.
“I realized right from DAY 1 that my investing software would be virtually impossible to sell!” Ken says. “You will never have to sell a product as difficult-to-sell as my first Web product.”
It was in a little known investing niche – not many people know about it.
Those who do know about it, have a negative impression about it (rightly so). Ken is an unknown in investing circles – “not only was I not Warren Buffet, I was a doctor — much worse!”
He could not even permit a trial download (due to the unique nature of the niche).
He was selling it at a high price.
Despite all those difficulties, Ken designed a site to sell this “near-impossible-to-sell” product and figured out how to attract targeted traffic.
Quite a challenge.
“That ‘challenge' nets (after expenses, which are minimal) my wife and I over $1,000 per day, up to $5,000 some days,” Ken says.

Ken wants to teach you how
Ken Evoy says he loves to teach.
“I have taught a championship Little League baseball team – twenty years later, one of the stars from that team, a man who has ‘made it' by selling his successful Web biz to a major e-commerce company, writes the Foreword to my book! You can read it when you take advantage of your free trial download.”
He also taught a professional touring Canadian golf pro. “My most exciting moment in sports came in the summer of 1996 when he won his first tournament and publicly gave me the credit!”
Ken also taught medical students at a McGill University teaching hospital, and he taught Tony Kwan, owner and president of Pointsder Manufacturing, who says:
“Ten years ago, I was a struggling toy manufacturer. Ken and I became friends through the toy business. Ken loves to help people. I can honestly say that if I had never met him, I would not be where I am today. And my company, Pointsder, would not be the HK$200,000,000 success story that it is today.”
Now Ken says that in keeping with his teaching inclinations, he sees his latest venture as a terrific opportunity not to “sell tips,” but instead to teach people how to do exactly what he does – totally via the Web.
So his site won't just supply you with products you can make money selling – it will teach you exactly how.

The bottom line
In any event, here's the bottom line, Ken says.
“While marketing that first product on the Web, a two-year trial-and-error process developed into a tight, battlefield-tested system that works… and will work for you, no matter what you're trying to sell on the Web.
“That product forced me to become a battle-tested expert in attracting targeted customers and making sites with SALES POWER.
“Whatever it is that you are selling, your product will be easier to sell than my first product…
Everything else can wait
I think the launch of Ken Evoy's program will be one of the most significant events in the revenue sharing industry this year. Everything else I was planning to write about can wait until next week. Oh, and this newsletter is a few hours early. I thought it was appropriate.[UPDATE, 2011: This program's launch certainly was a significant event in affiliate marketing. I earn four-figure monthly commissions and have earned five-figure commissions promoting Ken's SBI. Make Your Site Sell! is now free after selling more than 100,000 copies. Please note: The affiliate program is unique. Be sure to read the terms and conditions. You can now earn $75 commissions promoting SBI. ]
