Who Says Affiliates Cant Use Joint Ventures To Make Money?
This is a technique I teach almost every day. Yet almost no affiliate marketers are currently using it!
The trick is so interesting that you'll learn how to actually make money off of your competitors.
Here's how it works:
Step One: Create an "Upsell."
An Upsell is simply a more expensive product or service that you offer to your current customers. One of the best Upsells is a service that simplifies a complex process. Examples would be installing and running software, providing tutorials or providing consultation.
Here's an example: Let's say you've got a niche web site on resume writing. You promote a resume writing Ebook or audio tape program. Your commission on each sale is $20, and you've already sold 35 copies, so you've earned $700.
But even if someone buys a resume writing book, they won't necessarily get around to actually WRITING their resume! Some may procrastinate and others may just be too anxious.
So an excellent - and lucrative - Upsell would be a resume writing service. You offer this to the people who buy the book. But instead of making $20 per sale, you can charge much, much more - let's say $350 for a custom resume.
Even if only 2 people purchase this Upsell, you'll make as much money on those two sales as you did selling 35 copies of the Ebook. Nice? Yes.
Now go on to Step Two - which is where the REAL money gets made!
Step Two: JV to sell your Upsell!
Now here's the part that most affiliates, especially in niche markets, never think about. They fail to recruit solid JV partners once they've developed their own backend Upsells.
Once you've developed your upsell, contact all the websites that you initially looked to as competitors and offer them marketing material to help them make more money. You'll be amazed at how quickly they jump on.
In the example of the resume Ebook, you can even contact other affiliates who are selling that product. Yes - your competitors! Find anyone selling an Ebook about writing resumes and ask them to backend your Upsell.
They don't have to worry about you taking their business because they are not offering your service until the person has actually bought the Ebook through their link already! So, get creative and learn how to double your income by simply profiting from the traffic you already have. Create your own high-end products and sell them to those who buy though your affiliate link.
Better yet, hunt down your competitors and ask them to do the same.

Collect Visitors Info First Before Sending Them To Affiliate
Honestly, I'm not a big affiliate fan because in the past I haven't gotten 90% of the money promised either because they disappear before they pay out or they have so many exceptions -- paying out once a quarter, has to be over X dollars first, etc. Another negative side is that some of them think that 10% commission or some low amount is worth the 20 hours it takes for us to sell it. Usually the 10% equal $10 and $10 isn't worth my reputation even $1000 actually.
Watch Out For Traffic Leaks
When promoting any affiliate program one thing that you, as an affiliate, has to watch out for is what is called traffic leaks. What is a traffic leak? A traffic leak is something on the merchants site that will cause the visitor, that you referred to their site, to get distracted and leave the merchant site, leaving you with no possibility of receiving any kind of commission.
