How To Build Your Own 5-Figure Per Month Recurring Affiliate Funnel
The basic premise behind these recurring affiliate funnels is to promote products that offer a generous recurring commission as long as the customer you referred keeps paying.
There’s a big difference in the way I approach these types of funnels though.
Here’s the process most people follow:
- Find a high paying recurring product to promote.
- Sign up as an affiliate.
- Grab an affiliate link.
- Promote it.
The problem with that method is, a hundred or maybe even a thousand other affiliates are doing the exact same thing.
They’re all using the same banners, the same images, and the same email swipes. The market is already flooded with the exact same promotional material.
Worse than that, they’re all advertising to the same people over and over again. I call these type of affiliates, lazy affiliates.
They look at what everyone else is doing, they assume it’s working, and they blatantly copy them.
What they don’t realize is, they’re missing 85% of the potential market.
They’re focusing on the 15% of people who are at the highest level of awareness in the market. Take a look at the image below from Michael Masterson and John Forde’s book Great Leads:
The text on the bottom explains what type of sales copy you need to use based on the level of awareness. More on that later. For now, lets get back to the 15% of people that all of the affiliates focus on.
I’m talking about people who have likely already heard of the product, know what it does, and know that it’s a possible solution to their problem.
They’re the “low-hanging fruit”. They’re also the most expensive to advertise to because they’ve identified themselves as prospects already. Most ad platforms charge heavily for that knowledge.
I don’t know about you but I’d much rather go after the bigger pool of people. The 85%.
These people have the lowest level of awareness about the product you’re promoting.
YOU know they’re a potential prospect but they have know clue that what you’re promoting could possibly help them… or that it even exists.
These are the money prospects. They’re actually a way easier sell and you’ll have zero competition. All it takes is a little educating before the pitch. Very easy to do.
Let me give you an example to help you understand this strategy a little better.
I’ll use Clickfunnels as an example.
Their affiliate program pays out recurring monthly commissions of 40%.
Their lowest level is $97 per month so that’s about $40 per month in commission for just a single referral.
There’s no limit to the number of people you can refer.
In case you don’t know, Clickfunnels is a web based software for marketers that lets you build your entire marketing funnel with ease.
The people with the highest level of awareness for this product are internet marketers.
As internet marketers, Clickfunnels’ advertising has been shoved in our faces all across the web for the past few years.
But how many internet marketers and digital marketers do you think there are just in the United States?
Facebook’s ad platform tells me there are about 2 million.
Sounds like a lot but it’s really not when you think about how many affiliates have promoted Clickfunnels already in the last few years, not to mention how much Clickfunnels themselves have promoted their own product.
So who else could benefit from the Clickfunnels software?
