This week I wanted to cover a product from someone that I have connected with before. His name is Mike Thomas or Mike from Maine, which is the name of his popular show where he interviews online marketers.
Affiliate Income Secrets focuses on how to make money as an affiliate .In this product Mike outlines three main steps for you to follow. In Step 2 you are given 12 short videos which depict how Mike has managed to earn $10,000 per month by affiliate marketing. There is an introductory video which is just over 11 minutes long, the longest one, which is actually part of Step 1. So it won’t take you very long to listen to them all.
Mike shares with you a little about himself and how he has made money online, both his successes and failures. It’s always nice to get to know the person behind any product, which this video does. Plus you’ll discover what his number 1 asset is, and I couldn’t agree more.
Mike is also hosting a webinar on Nov 12 at 3pm EST, where he will answer all of your questions. Make sure that you start watching the videos as soon as you download them. This way you can take advantage of his webinar.
On to the main product. As I mentioned it contains 12 easy to watch videos.
The first video is all about Mike’s home base, he describes what it is and how to build and develop your own. He then moves on to other topics including Start Now where he encourages you to just get started and that everyone has to start with zero.
Other topics include: knowing your numbers, audience relationships, networking, building your list, creating products and how the heck to get started.
Step Three of Affiliate Income Secrets includes 9 more videos and these ones take you through the actual steps of his Actions that he takes to generate his affiliate commissions. In this section Mike covers topics such as finding what products to promote, how to connect with the product creator, the importance of writing an honest review and more. You will also be given access to Case Studies which can be really helpful.
I also had the privilege of peaking inside the two upsells. The first is Review Video secrets and the second upsell is List Building secrets. I believe there will be an Interview Secrets offer as well. It hadn’t been finalized when I was given access to this product. Okay, just checked and this section will be added by launch day.
I have already learned a couple of neat tricks from this training, one was to do with JV Zoo and is something I will do with my next launch for sure. It’s something I have been wondering about, don’t want to mention it as I can’t give away the details of Mike’s course.
Overall I really like this product and it would be something that I would purchase myself. The main product is well worth the price and if you get in early there will be an early bird discount for the first two hours. The official launch is at 11 am EST on Nov 5.
Mike has a wonderful speaking voice and delivers his videos with a clear voice and at a really nice pace, so you can follow along easily. The only thing I wished he had included where PDF transcripts. Transcripts are great if you want to go back and reference something quickly.
The pluses in my book include:
Pleasant voice and easy to understand
Affiliate marketing is also a great way to make use of your PLR content. You could use the tips in this course to monetize your content and promote related products. While Mike’s product does focus on internet marketing products there is no reason why you can’t apply these tactics to any type of product that you want to promote.
