In Affiliate Marketing, if you currently do not have a landing page or sales funnel set up for your websites yet, you are FAILING to implement the MOST IMPORTANT part to your business; your EMAIL LIST!
If you are a newbie affiliate marketer, as you progress through your journey as an online entrepreneur, you will learn that if you are not building your own list, you are NOT building your business.

Learn from my mistakes…
I remember when I first started 4 years ago, everything was completely foreign to me.
I was lost, confused, and sometimes got so frustrated trying to figure out this whole thing, but I was also very excited to create a new opportunity for me to really start making money online.
At the time, I was like everyone else.
I would sign up for a bunch of different affiliate programs, created content surrounding those products / services, and started sending traffic…
But one of the biggest mistakes most affiliate marketers make and one I learned, was not creating a landing page (aka capture page, optin page…) to collect emails right away.
I lost a lot of money!
Instead, I would send people directly to the company’s Affiliate Link, wishing and hoping someone would buy something.
As affiliate marketers, we are promoting somebody else’s products so you must build your list so you can have a direct line of communication for your leads.
You see most people don’t buy usually buy anything the first time they see the product / service you’re promoting.
Most people will only click on your link to browse around… but if you aren’t capturing their email, or someway to follow up with them, you are missing out on many potential buyers.
The money is in the list!
Remember, as an affiliate you are simply a bridge… you are there to introduce the company’s product / service to your customers.
The way you can do that is with a ClickFunnels; a software / tool most internet marketers use to guide your customers through a buying process and also a way you can automate half of your business so that you don’t have to do any selling.
All you have to focus on is generating leads and getting traffic while you let the sales funnel work for itself!
How great is that?
My very FIRST commission.
In 2017, 5 months after I launched my first website here on Wealthy Affiliate, I finally made my first commission.
You heard that right guys… 5 months later!
However, don’t be discouraged because as mentioned above, I was failed to implement capturing people’s emails from the start!
I also had the shiny object syndrome, where I really wasn’t focusing on one specific thing, I was all over the place trying to master everything at once.
For 5 months, I was wasting time and money… over $3000 on this type of traffic called solo ads (Please do your research on all types of PAID ads before buying…) and also Facebook ads.
Anyways, it wasn’t until I learned about ClickFunnels and the One Funnel Away Challenge that I really understood how to build and scale up a profitable Affiliate Marketing business.

No Traffic = No Business
In 30 days, I had a a sales funnel for each one of my Affiliate products / services.
All I had to do now was find traffic…
If you’re struggling to get a consistent stream of traffic or NEW people coming to your business, then what you have is NOT a real business.

My $20,000 Affiliate ‘Sales Funnel’
My biggest month online was back in September 2017.
I was part of a high-ticket affiliate marketing company, which pretty much means that the commissions were a lot higher (ranged from $500 – $16,000 and up)…and over the span of 3 months, there was an affiliate contest.
I was still pretty new at the time and had no idea what a simple 3 Step Sales Funnel would do for my business.
I created raw video in a pool while at a Mastermind retreat in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
I ran a Facebook AD towards that video, and instantly, that video went viral with shares off the roof!
But more importantly, along with that video was my Sales Funnel!
You see, if I did’t have a proper sales funnel set up, even if that video went viral, I wouldn’t have made over $20,000 in the month of September alone!
ClickFunnels has been the most important tool / software that runs my entire business.
No matter what niche or business you’re in, there is definitely a funnel for that.
But especially if you are a newbie affiliate marketer like I was just trying to really make this work!
