It’s not too often that an affiliate manual comes along that I’ll actually buy, much less implement.
Most of the products are simply a bunch of “me too” products.
Affiliate manuals tend to come in two flavors. The first group says something about building lists, then marketing the crap out of that list. The second group says let’s build sites and send pay per click traffic to them.
I have nothing against either one of them. Both work. The problem is that both require substantial testing and knowledge to use effectively.
However, in Confessions of a Lazy Super Affiliate, author Chris Rempel puts a whole new twist on things. In fact, he actually uses a system that is similar to what I’ve been using over the past year and a half.
He teaches you how to build sites that get really targeted traffic designed to convert well – i.e. desperate keywords. While you’re not gonna get millions of visitors per day by using this system, you will get people who are in need of a solution. It’s your job to provide them that solution in the form of an affiliate offer.
That’s the jist of it. The trick is actually getting that traffic, and as someone who understands search engine optimization, I have to admit that Chris really knows what he’s talking about in his ebook, “The Lazy Marketer.”
I think that’s the part that surprised me the most. He not only understood affiliate marketing – he understood search engine optimization and has combined the two beautifully.
However, while revealing that particular system was somewhat innovative, I wouldn’t call it earth shattering. It’s really just an advanced combination of Bum Marketing and Affiliate Project X (but it is darn effective).
The part of the system that made me decide I actually need to own it was what he calls viral software marketing. He revealed to me a traffic generation strategy I’d never even heard of! I’ll be honest, that doesn’t happen too often anymore. Basically what you do in this part of the system is create simple yet useful programs (or outsource it, which is what I’m doing since I’m not a programmer), then you distribute them to the top software directories.
The results can be impressive – thousands of extra visitors per day.
So would I recommend that you buy Confessions of a Lazy Super Affiliate? I would. In fact, I’m recommending it as my top pick if you want to start making money online in 2008.
I actually am actually budgeting several thousand dollars for the development of these type of sites myself despite having plenty of other projects on my plate. That’s how confident I am in this system, I’m sticking a lot of my own money into using it – something I rarely do especially for cheap little eBooks like this one.
