I’m going to reveal to you the magic formula that I’ve been using to make thousands of dollars on auto-pilot every single week… without a product, a website or even a list.
Several years ago I stumbled into the world of affiliate marketing and it seemed like a sure-fire way to make money (especially as I didn’t have a product of my own).
My ‘fool-proof’ plan, was to find people interested in specific subjects and promote related affiliate products to them. Sounds simple enough, right?
Boy was I in for a shock! Selling other peoples products is a LOT more difficult than I expected… and very expensive!
I blew thousands on advertising and never sold a thing. Then I had an amazing idea that changed my life.
Up to this point I’d been doing exactly the same as every one else. I was sending out emails, placing adverts and paying for Adsense to try to convince people to buy something.
I’d been making a killer mistake, and it was crippling my business before I even got started. I needed a radical change in my approach… and that’s when I stumbled into one of the most powerful secrets to make money online…
I decided to focus all of my efforts on giving people as much value as I could. I set up email lists with free courses, created a stack of free ebooks and scoured the internet everyday looking for news stories that my followers might enjoy.
I wanted to give them as much as value as possible before I asked them to buy. I’d recently learned about a powerful psychological technique called ‘The Law of Reciprocity’ which basically says that when you do something nice for someone, they will have a deep-rooted psychological urge to do something nice in return.
This made a lot sense to me, and I knew it was the key factor for success in online marketing. If I could provide massive value for my followers, they’d be much more likely to buy a product.
Even though I didn’t have my own product I knew I could make money as an affiliate by recommending somebody else’s. In fact, this would be even better because I wouldn’t have to deal with the customer directly. All I needed to do was share my affiliate link.
I set up my first ‘Reciprocity Business’ targeting people interested in hypnosis. I gathered together plenty of valuable content and gave it to my followers. Then I put the law of reciprocity into action and sent them my affiliate link for a popular hypnosis course.
This was a genius move! Lots of my followers purchased the course, and I made a very generous $97 for every single sale…
Giving your followers something of value before you ask for a sale is a very powerful way to make money.
