How To Start Affiliate Marketing With No Money


Rob Fraser here…

“My back is against the wall and I want to start affiliate marketing because I have no money.  If I had money, then I probably wouldn’t be looking at affiliate marketing to begin with”

“I want to start affiliate marketing because I am broke. 

“I want to learn how to start affiliate marketing with no money, so I can help others who are in the same situation.”

If any of the above statements sounds like you, then read on.  I will attempt to share with you exactly what I would do if I was starting over and had zero dollars and zero cents to start affiliate marketing.

I’m going to share all of the tools, tips, and resources that I would utilize if my back was against the wall and I needed to get this affiliate marketing income flowing, so I could survive.


Why should I listen to you Rob about affiliate marketing


I was set to get out of the Marines August 31, 2011.  April 30, 2015 I had six figures of debt ($102,284.74).  January 8, 2016 I have paid that debt in full from affiliate marketing.  Since then I have been a full time affiliate marketer.

In this series of blogs, I am going to share different things I’m doing to help you accomplish your own financial goals in affiliate marketing.




How to start affiliate marketing with no money


The whole idea revolves around creating a basic marketing system with an offer and then getting people to see it (advertising, targeted traffic, etc).

When I first started making money in affiliate marketing in 2015, I’ve preached this same concept.  You have to have a business, a marketing system, and traffic.  Those 3 things ensures that you will get money online. 

In this case of starting out broke, we can only work with what we got so a Clickbank offer will be the “business” in this case, the Free Lead System is the marketing system, and applying the training in Wealthy Affiliate will give us the traffic.




How to get started in affiliate marketing while broke


First, I would recommend getting your Wealthy Affiliate (or WA for short) account setup and running.  This is a complete guide to getting started in affiliate marketing and isn’t centered around business opportunity type offers.  You can learn how to talk about your passions, hobbies, and other pursuits and include various income streams.

Some of the products recommending within WA aren’t going to be free, such as hosting and domain service, but the main bulk of the training can be utilized.

This very blog is an example and it is 100% free to use.  Also see my previous post on affiliate marketing on blogger for free!


Second, I recommend getting a Free Lead System account (or FLS) as this is centered around making money online in the business opportunity space.  The concepts in both cases are the same.  FLS will allow you to start building your email list which is key in affiliate marketing.  You can upgrade later and customize the FLS, but that’s not vital at this point.

Third, grab a Clickbank account.  You can grab other people’s “make money online” offers and refer them to others.  It is as simple as creating your free account, going into the market place and typing in a search for “make money online.” 

Once you have found an offer on clickbank, it’s only a matter of connecting the offer to the Free Lead System and then using the information you will learn in Wealthy Affiliate to get targeted traffic (people to see your offer).  Once a certain amount of people see it (I don’t know what this number maybe for you), then you will make sales. 

It’s the law of large numbers.  Once you find out how many people you need to see your offer (leads) before you make a sale, then it’s only a matter of getting that same amount of people to see your offer and scaling up.

What??

So if I need 100 leads (people to see my offer) to make 1 sale, then I just need to focus on getting 100 leads (over and over again).

I’m going to leave it off here for now as there is so much info to cover and share.  I’m struggling to keep it focused on the very basics here as I tend to get way too technical.  You don’t need to be technical to earn money online with affiliate marketing.  You just need to take action.




Recommended tools and products




All of the links to get started in my recommended places are in the above paragraph.  I highly recommend grabbing your free accounts and start going through the training provided by all the programs. 

This may seem overwhelming at first, but if you take it day by day and also connect with me (through this blog or on social), then we can get you plugging into my personal training groups and mentoring.  Anyone can do affiliate marketing, it just takes a bit of grit and determination!

This is a learning process and just remember that it takes time, effort, energy, and a willingness to learn, but the end is worth it.  Having income that comes in at random times 24/7 is a very powerful and liberating thing!

Also stay tuned to this blog as I’m going to be covering more specifics (ie How to connect your Wealthy Affiliate account with the Free Lead System, How to find affiliate programs to sell on clickbank, How to get free traffic for your affiliate offers, and so much more so stay tuned!)


Keep pressing!

Can anyone do affiliate marketing


Rob Fraser here…

“I want to do affiliate marketing but I don’t know if people like me can do it.”  “I want to do affiliate marketing but I don’t have the know how.”  I want to do affiliate marketing but I don’t know if it’s open to everyone.”

If anyone of those statements sounds closely like you, then you are in the right place.  What I’m going to be answering in this blog post is can anyone do affiliate marketing and share a simple way to get started.

You are reading this because you want to know if anyone can do affiliate marketing.  That is a simple yes and no answer.

While technically yes, anyone can do affiliate marketing not everyone will have what it takes to succeed at it.  Also see how to start affiliate marketing with no money!


My successes in affiliate marketing


When I first got out of the Marines, I was in 5 figures of debt.  After working for about 4 years going from job to job all the while working my affiliate marketing business, I was in 6 figures of debt.

I finally turned it around after I came across a mentor and started using his simple straightforward affiliate marketing system.  Since coming across a mentor and a plan, I’ve paid down my debt and enjoy a six figure per year income.

In these series of blogs, I’m going to lay out my simple straight forward methods of affiliate marketing so you can do the same with zero competition!


Can Anyone Do Affiliate Marketing



Yes, anyone can do affiliate marketing.  When I first started, I came across all kinds of different programs.  I kept saving my pennies and blowing my dollars on different courses, programs, and products to sell.

It was so frustrating because I felt like I was in a never ending loop.  I’d buy something and then get informed that I needed to buy something else to make the first thing work.  I hate being upsold but that is a part of this industry.

It’s scary and frustrating when you don’t know if what you are spending your hard earned dollars on will actually work.

Aside from my earlier frustrations, I kept on and if you have the same grit and determination to create some extra income through affiliate marketing, then you can do affiliate marketing!



How to get started in affiliate marketing


I’m going to share with you the very first place I would go to learn affiliate marketing and that is Wealthy Affiliate.  You can register at this link here 100% free and start learning all the ins and outs about affiliate marketing.

Wealthy Affiliate teaches how to create true passive income.  Passive income is amazing however, it can take a while to build up.  I’m currently building up my passive income in affiliate marketing through this blog, my youtube channel, and through paid marketing.

I combine this strategy with an active affiliate marketing strategy so I can get paid daily while building my passive income.  I just wish I had this strategy figured out back when I first started making money.

Unlike most affiliate marketers, I love to keep things simple and have a long-term focus.  I have a young kiddo at home and can’t afford to be chasing all kinds of different strategies and programs down the rabbit hole. 

Affiliate marketing is so riddled with crap programs and scams.  If you are tired of crap program and scams and want to build a long-term sustainable income, then I’m your guy to follow.

Check out my previous post on doing affiliate marketing on blogger!


Recommended tools and products



As previously mentioned, you will need a free Wealthy Affiliate account.  This is where you are going to learn everything from A to Z and back again about affiliate marketing.

Second, I highly recommend checking out the Free Lead System.  This free system will teach you how to build an email list for affiliate marketing.  In future blog posts, I will be sharing how to tie these systems together.

Also don’t let the Free Lead System fool you, I have earned over $250K+ the past few years with it!

I hope that you got some value out of this post and also have learned that yes, anyone can do affiliate marketing.  It’s going to take a little bit of know-how, work, and a mentor but you can make it happen. 

I will also say that it is a learning process so be patient with yourself!  To see exactly how I put all these pieces together and get access to my training groups just click here and opt in!

Until next time!

Can I do affiliate marketing on blogger for free


Rob Fraser here…


“I want to start affiliate marketing but I have a small or no budget, can I do affiliate marketing for free?”  To answer the question shortly, yes you can although you may want to read the rest (or at least skim) this post to learn how you can do affiliate marketing for free, and more specifically, on blogger.

There are tons of ways to make money blogging as an affiliate marketer.  Affiliate marketers choose blogging because it’s one of the cheapest ways to get people to see your affiliate offers.  If no one is seeing your affiliate offer, then you aren’t making any money.


In this post, I’m going to answer the question “can I do affiliate marketing on blogger” as well as sharing a few tips, tools, and tricks for getting started fast!


Why should you listen to me?



This pic is just one of my income streams!


I have made close to $500K in affiliate commissions over the past 5 years and am still earning a “full time income” to this day.  It wasn’t always like that, in fact I got started online in late 2010 about 9 months before I was set to leave active duty.

I struggled in the affiliate marketing space from 2010-2015 and during that process, I separated active duty.  I bounced from job to job and wasn’t really happy because the whole reason I got out was because I didn’t want a job to consume my life as much as the military did.


During this process, I kept getting deeper and deeper into debt until finally, on April 30, 2015 I written down my total debt which was $102,284.74.  Once I written that number down, it finally clicked and I made a decision. it wasn’t long I came across a simple system and a mentor, that I started to find success. 

Fast forward, I’ve paid down that six figure debt in under 9 months through affiliate marketing so I know the power of the model and is my intent to teach you how you can accomplish your own financial goals through affiliate marketing.  At the very least, I want to answer the question yes can anyone do affiliate marketing.


In this post, I’m going to cover the pros and cons of affiliate marketing on blogger, my suggested strategy if you are starting out and don’t have a lot of money to invest into your affiliate marketing business, and finally some of my highly recommended programs and products.


Pros of affiliate marketing on blogger


Some of the pros of affiliate marketing on blogspot are it’s free, quick to get started, can easily crank out content, and can easily get continuous traffic.

Free

One of the biggest reasons most affiliate marketers blog is because of the price.  You can’t beat free, although it will cost you time.  In my future blog posts, I’m going to be sharing how to find topics to blog about that people are already searching for (and it isn’t what you think).

Quick to get started

It’s very easy to get a basic blogging template up and running.  This very blog is an example of a simple and straight-forward theme.  There are some who would swear by only blogging on wordpress, but if you are struggling and trying to cut as many costs as you can in the beginning, then blogger is the way to go.

I will be sharing how I combine my blogging, youtube (or vlogs), paid traffic, and social media to create continuous traffic and a steady supply of new visitors to my blog (whether google ranks it high or low in the search engines, my strategy will work).


As of right now, I don’t have a wordpress blog and I do make six figures per year in affiliate marketing.  I only share that to show that anyone can do affiliate marketing on blogger!

Can easily crank out content to market your affiliate programs

Cranking out content is one of the easiest ways to market your affiliate programs.  In future posts, I’ll share what type of affiliate programs I bundle together.


You also can easily get continuous and targeted traffic and grow your traffic on a daily basis.


Cons of affiliate marketing on blogger


You don’t own blog, can be subject to penalties, and it doesn’t appear professional.

You don’t own the blog

Google ultimately own blogspot and that can subject you to penalties or “hidden slaps.”  I would suggest keeping a back up of all the posts you write just in case something happens.  I would also suggest eventually upgrading to your own wordpress site, but only after you have made a few bucks in commissions.

Following my complete affiliate marketing plan here will get you earning commissions, if you stay committed and focused!

Not Professional Looking

You can go the extra miles and hire graphic designers and create logos from FiverR, but when you are starting out that can be stretching the budget.  I started with a free google blogspot for my affiliate marketing career and I still use it to this day!

Plus if you are utilizing my complete affiliate marketing strategy, then it is not going to matter if your blog looks professional or not as you will have so much traffic coming to it that you will be in profit anyways.  You can later choose to make it look more professional as you hire on designers, logo creation, and can even just outsource the whole writing blogs in and of itself!


My suggested strategy of affiliate marketing on blogger


First of all, my answer is yes you can do affiliate marketing on blogger.  I do have some guidance if this is going to be your main method of marketing.


How to do affiliate marketing on blogger


Google search for what people would be searching for who are interested in making money blogging.  I will discuss how to find topics to talk about blogging for affiliate marketing in future blog posts.  A few things off the top are reviews of programs or products, why have you gotten involved in affiliate marketing, answering questions, and ideas from other blogs, articles, and videos.



You can even mix it up by blogging about your life (vacations, work life, family life, activities, and etc).  You don’t want to limit yourself to one main topic.  I’ve made more money combining my life (to a degree) with my marketing. 

Don’t be so affiliate focused that you forget to add your personality into your blogging.


Join a couple of affiliate programs and write up reviews, your experience, and anything else related to the type of programs or products that you are promoting.

Social media, email list, paid traffic, youtube, other blogging platforms
Share your blog across your social media profiles and also strive to grow your social media network on a daily basis.  I will share some training on this in future blog posts.  The whole idea is to not be so one sided and just relying on the search engines.


When I started, I was broke and could only do blogging and vlogging via Youtube.  When I started making money, I just relied on paid traffic and stopped blogging.  This ended up biting me in the butt once I learned the truth behind some paid traffic sources.  I’ll be sharing more about this in future blog posts as well!

I’ve wasted a lot of money on junk traffic and not testing!

Be sure to check out how to start affiliate marketing with no money!

I personally use blogging just like my Youtube videos.  I crank out posts answering questions and then I email these posts to my email list that I generate from blogging, my video marketing (youtube or “vlogs”), and my paid traffic.

This is how I can grow my readership of my blog with or without being ranking high in the search engines.  I do have a deeper understanding about ranking in the search engines as well, and yes I will share more in future blog posts.


It’s impossible to jam it all in this post, so be sure to opt into my email list here and get notified when I update the blog here.

Free strategies for broke marketers to do affiliate marketing on blogger

Blogging, Vlogging (videos), social media, forums, and classified ads are great places to start.  I will be writing more posts on different strategies in the future so make sure to subscribe!


Recommended tools and products


A Wealthy Affiliate account (my next post will be all about Wealthy Affiliate as a great place to learn affiliate marketing, Lead funnels, Lead Lightning, an autoresponder, and some quality sources of traffic.

This also keeps the cash coming in on a daily basis.  When you are starting out, it can be slow going and if you have something that can potentially give you life changing income right out the gate while you build your passive income, then you truly have a business that can free you!

I know I jammed in a whole but, but again opt in here to get on my email list and I’ll send out newer posts while we go down this road!

Until next time!

Hitting Ruts, Changing the Plan, and Promoting Online Businesses


Rob Fraser here…

Been a while since I updated this post and I wanted to start pushing content but personally I have been in a rut.  Online income went from $3500 weeks down to barely breaking $1000.  The funny thing is back in 2010-2015 I would have loved to earn $1000 per week!

It’s funny how your outlook and mentality changes!

Why am I sharing this? 

My reasons are twofold.  First, to get out of my own $1000 a week funk and, most importantly, show others how to do the same (get out of funks and continue to make more money promoting online businesses).

The reason business got in a rut is very simple.  I’ve stopped doing income producing activities.  What are these income producing activities that I stopped?  Writing articles, shooting videos, buying targeted traffic, and expanding my social media networks.  It is really that simple.

I got comfortable and just maintained my existing relationships, hardly written any articles lately, shot minimal videos, hardly been buying clicks, and etc.  You get the idea.

How to get out of funks? 

First, it may take a while to realize that you are in one.  When you figure that out, then it’s simple. 

Don’t forget what brought you to the “party!”

What brought me to the party was shooting videos, writing articles, expanding my network, and buying clicks!

So, time to get back to work.

A part of what got me in the funk was promoting a couple of programs online that have “exit scammed” and that threw me off for a bit. 

Now that I’m back on track, it’s a very simple straight-forward promotion plan.

Write articles, pump out youtube videos, buy clicks, and expand my social media networks!

If you are wanting to figure out a way to make consistent $1000 weeks (even if you are in a funk), then click here!

Until next time!

The Unlimited Wealth System Email Schedule

Today, I’m going to talk about how I promote everything within the Unlimited Wealth System by building one email list and the email schedule that I use to lump everything together.  I build one email list promoting the Unlimited Wealth System, and then I email that same list 4 times per week with themed emails that go along with the day I’m emailing.

Get on my email list here if you aren’t already on so you can see for yourself this plan in action!

What days of the week I email my list?

First, I only email my list 4 days per week.  Those days are Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I’ve found that over time it really doesn’t matter what the days are specifically.  It is more important you have a plan.  There is always someone on the internet looking for ways to get ahead financially 24/7.  I remember I was doing the same 4 years ago on Christmas, but that’s another story.

My email schedule with the themed days are Self Development Sundays, Teaching Trading Tuesdays, Training and Traffic Thursdays, and Fast Money Fridays. 

The idea is to put out content (videos on youtube or blogs here or on IBOToolbox) with that same theme.  It is about combining the email strategy with a content marketing strategy.  I teach both of these courses in the Power Lead System’s Master Traffic Institute. 

Self Development Sunday

How this looks is on Sunday, I’ll put out a video talking about something I have learned in my personal journey in online marketing.  Check out an example here.

That video I just shared will also go in my email that will hit my email list on Self Development Sunday.  This serves a number of different purposes. 

Set content and email schedule

Following this theme gives me a set content and email schedule.  This makes my business very easy.  I don’t have to think about “what am I going to email my list about today” or “what kind of video am I going to upload today.”  I just think about what the day is and what I have learned during the week and put it in an email and voila!

Know, Like, and Trust

This gets people knowing, liking, and trusting you.  I’m sure you have heard that people join people they know, like, and trust.  There is no better way than introducing people to your content and business plan.  Now, compare everything I’m doing here to most people who just send out spammy emails.

Who would you rather join?  Someone who is constantly spamming your email inbox, or someone who has a definite plan, clear instructions, a long-term vision, and content where you can get a deeper understanding of my thinking and systems?

Who do you think is more long-term?  Someone who is joining a new deal every week, or someone who puts time into creating content revolving around the existing plan (The Unlimited Wealth System).

Teaching Trading Tuesdays

On Tuesday, I follow the same plan.  I email my list about ICoin Pro, EXP Asset, and Bitclub Frontiers.  I put out a video talking about my progress trading and include that in my email to my list of these three programs.  Lately, I’ve been only limiting my email to having ICoin Pro and EXP Asset because I don’t want to overwhelm my list.  I rotate Bitclub Frontiers in sporadically.

Training and Traffic Thursdays

On Thursday, I email my list about my marketing system and my traffic sources.  My theme is “how to get lots of traffic to your business” or “Training and Traffic” and this gives me the chance to explain my generic marketing system and traffic sources that have kept my business profitable over the past 3+ years.

Fast Money Fridays

On Fridays, I email my list about my Instant Cash Strategy.  I make a video on Friday regarding the theme of the day and I include that in my email.

Then I just keep repeating.  If I join something new, I will either add it to the schedule or send it out one of the other days.  (Shiny ball Saturday as an example)

If you aren’t on my email list, then get on it at this link here and you can see this strategy in action!

The Unlimited Wealth System

This is my newest and most long-term plan.  This blog along with related articles and videos are all going to details the Unlimited Wealth System.  I’m also going to provide a “Broke Man Plan” as well working with this same system for folks who are starting out with a small amount of disposable income (to turn into a full-time income over time).

Today, I’m covering the 20,000 foot (or the bird’s eye) view of the new plans.  I’m just going to list the programs and why they were picked to be a part of this system. 

ICoin Pro (ICP) is one of the first two programs.  This teaches you most everything you need to know about cryptocurrencies and also how to trade them for profit.  I’ve since become a full-time day trader using the knowledge I’ve learned from this program.  My idea is to have a full-time income from marketing and another full-time income from trading so I’m not relying on just one thing for money.

Power Lead System (PLS) is how we promote everything.  All of the programs I’m listing here that are a part of the Unlimited Wealth can also be promoted 100% by themselves.  We combine everything into one sales funnel (Unlimited Wealth System, or UWS) and also have individual sales funnel for each piece for people who may resonate with some programs and not others.

We like to provide options.

Bitclub Network (BCN) is where we mine various cryptocurrencies for profit.  We have this positioned in the back end because not everyone knows that cryptocurrency mining is and is also where ICoin Pro comes in.  We present ICoin Pro first to educate and then present our mining when people have an idea of what it is and why it’s vital.

Global Information Network (GIN) is the most important piece of this whole system, in my opinion.  Constantly participating and listening to the audio training has kept me from doing something very stupid to myself and has allowed me to mentally overcome six figures of debt and I still utilize GIN now more than ever.

The above programs are part of the main system, but I’ve also included a workaround for some additional programs.

Swiss Gold Global is another place where we mine various cryptocurrencies and where we also buy gold and silver.

Mintbuilder is another place where we can buy gold and silver.  We can choose to get paid commissions through bitcoin.

FutureNet/FutureAdPro is a social media and traffic exchange platform that I use to build my network and get more traffic.  I use earnings from FutureNet to continuously purchase traffic to feed this whole system.

Easy 1 Up/Vertex Lead system makes up the Instant Cash Strategy I follow.  For the folks not wanting to use revenue sharing programs for perpetual traffic, my Instant Cash Strategy is another solution.  The idea is to make a sale and then immediately take half and throw it back into paid traffic.

I am going to be diving deeper into my “email schedule” that ties everything together.  This is how I promote multiple streams of income without going crazy.

Traffic Sources

IBOToolbox is like FutureNet and is just another social media platform to get more traffic.

My top paid traffic sources are Udimi Solo Ads, MLM Leads, Traffic 4 Me, and Traffic Authority.

This was just to lay everything out.  Bookmark and come back to this blog often as I’m going to constantly add articles, blog posts, and videos covering the plan and strategy.  This is a long-term plan and if something gets shut down or crashes, we won’t have all of our eggs in one basket.


Lastly, on this blog, I’m going to go into my forecasts on Gold, Silver, Bitcoin, and Ethereum.

I know I dumped quite a lot here, but I just wanted to get it all out there on the table and as I get questions and etc, I will post answers, solutions, and plans here.

If you aren't on my email list (to see the plan in action), then click here.
