I hope you have been enjoying our series on acquiring and launching digital assets.
You know this really is one the fastest and best ways to jumpstart any online business.
Doing a few digital product launches will boost your authority and build your buyers email list faster than almost anything.
I want to talk to you today about “releasing” the digital product once it’s been created.
It’s not enough to create a cool product and put up a sales page with a buy button.
We need to go out there and get customers.
One of the fastest most effective ways to do that is to find people who already have a following in your niche.
These are influencers.
Generally, they have big email lists of people who listen to what they have to say.
It’s exactly what you are trying to build.
So reach out to these influencers and offer them an affiliate commission if they would promote your product.
I would say no less than 50% all the way to 100%.
75% is usually a happy compromise.
The emails are the number 1 priority here.
Profit is secondary with a product launch.
Both are important but once you have acquired the emails you can send that email list to future product offers.
As you can see, affiliate traffic can be expensive, but it is very effective.
How do you find them?
Many people who launch digital products run affiliate contests.
Check those contests on WarriorPlus and JVZOO.
Reach out to those contest leaderboard rankers.
Friend request them on facebook and work on building a relationship with them before you launch a product.
Also, be sure to join all the JV launch groups on facebook.
These groups don’t get a lot of engagement.
They are mostly people posting their launch details.
Think of them like classified ads.
Be sure to post about your launch in these groups.
Be sure to list your launch on Muncheye, it’s a central hub for affiliates (in the digital marketing space).
Put together a list of target affiliates for your launch.
(200 of these targeted affiliates is not out of the question).
The more you reach out to the more success you will have.
Affiliate recruitment gets easier the more you do product launching and the more success you have.
People who sell respect other people who know how to sell.
So there is very much a feeling that you need to prove yourself before you start getting respect.
The subject of affiliate recruitment is a deep one and is beyond the scope of this email.
But what I will say is that it is in your best interest to learn it.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been made in just a few short days on a good digital product launch.
That’s it for now.
I know this has been a lot of information but it is extremely valuable and when applied and practiced can make you a lot of money.
I have another resource that I am going to talk about with you tomorrow, but for now, we’ll end this session here…
P.S. – I appreciate you … Later
