Internet Marketers are Looking for Online Merchants to Work With | Free Affiliate Marketing consultant

If you’ve already read this, scroll down to the bottom of this text for short video and a couple of important links.

Free Affiliate Marketing consultant, why.

Because you get what you pay for and…
I’m not great, just above average:)
I may be recommending services for which I might earn a commission.
I could run you through a complex useless sales funnel and charge for this but I don’t need to and I really dislike inefficient BS.

I hope that sets the tone of our conversation, if we ever do speak. My business partners tell me that I’m brutally direct. Go visit someone else if you’re looking for someone to tell you how brilliant you are or want someone to smoke blown up your skirt. I’m not mean or rude to those I help but neither will I lie to you. None of those options are productive. My motivation is simple and very transparent. I have friends in the affiliate marketing industry that pay me to match them up with new clients. Those I’ve helped have paid as little as a couple hundred dollars one time for a little consulting with a pro to several thousand a month for someone to completely manage the affiliate channel of their business.

What’s the deal?
Here’s the deal…
The recent state level “Amazon Sales Tax Bills” have led Amazon to terminate 10,000′s of US Affiliate Marketing Partners.
These affiliate marketers are looking for merchants to work with to replace their lost earnings.
The timing is good for smaller Nexus state merchants to get into affiliate marketing.

What I will do for you…
I’ll review your site from an affiliate marketers prospective for suitability.
I’ll lead you to one of the premier affiliate networks to work with.
I’ll put you in front of honest people and tools.
I’ll hold your hand through your learning curve.

Our communication will be email only until I’ve reviewed your website. After we have connected, I’ll send you my phone number and we can speak if you wish.
I can also help new and struggling Affiliate Marketers, please note whether you are an Affiliate marketer or Merchant in your reply.


What is an Affiliate Program?

Here is a 25 minute introduction to what Affiliate Marketing is. After you go through this video you will have an idea if Affiliate Marketing is right for you. This is crucial to watch before you even think about launching an affiliate program. While the hype will tell you that affiliate marketing is a quick way to get traffic and sales to your site, like with anything it takes time and education.

Learn the lingo, learn the parts, learn the process, then you can go on to the next step. This video is appropriate for CEOs, Company presidents, CMOs, marketing managers, affiliate managers or whoever at the company has been chosen to develop your affiliate program. Even if you already have an affiliate program, you can benefit from taking the time to watch.

Here’s the link if the video is broken… What is an Affiliate Program?

The Affiliate Network that I recommend.

Look around, you can even open a free Affiliate Account to see details of what other merchants are doing.

What is an OPM?

3 Steps to Trade Show Success

GeoTHERM 2012 - Geothermal Trade Show GermanyIf you have just started you own business and you are looking for ways to gain exposuer and make sales then trade shows can be a big help. If you do it right you can give your company a boost. If you don’t do it right you can waste a lot of money.


One of the most important factors to your success with trade shows is choosing the right one. As a new business it might be tempting to try and get a booth at the biggest show possible. But remember it’s not about getting in front of the most people it is getting in front of the right people. It won’t do you any good to go to a show where only a few of the attendees will be in your target market. A small more specific show will give you much better results. It will cost you less and you will probably get more sales from it than you would from the bigger show.


You want your trade show booth design to stand out. When people are walking around the trade floor there are many different things competing for their attention. If you can make your booth different enough to attract that attention you will get more people interested in what you are offering. Think of your booth as the first step in your trade show sales funnel. It is what gets you noticed. Then once you have people’s attention you can start to sell them your product or service. It is important to note that unless you have a team with a specific skill set it is unlikely that you will be able to construct and adequate display on your own. Luckily there are a number of companies that specialize in custom trade show displays. These agencies will give you the design that you need to succeed.


Almost as important as having a good design is having the right people manning your booth. These people are another step in your sales funnel. Like your booth design, you want to put on your best face forward. Find the people in your organization that are the most personable and knowledgeable about your product. If you don’t have anyone that has both of these characteristics then get two people and let them work together. Also make sure that your personnel know how to close a sale. It won’t do you any good to go to a trade show and not sell anything.

Trade shows are a great way to build your business. You can gain a lot of exposure, meet some great people, and generate a lot of sales leads if you learn how to do it right.
