Today’s show is a hybrid episode. We recently had a 3-hour livestream on Facebook where we spoke with a variety of guests to discuss affiliate marketing. Pat Flynn was one of our guests and he is one of those folks who teaches and does affiliate marketing in pretty much the same way we do, so the first part of this show is the interview we held with Pat. You’ll hear how he got started, what his process is, how he interacts with his audience, his tips for promoting products, and ideas on how you can work with big brands to become known as the main expert for their product.
Then the second half of this episode is where we discuss all the cool things that are working for us right now in our business with affiliate marketing. You’ll hear how we’ve been using Facebook and YouTube lately, tips for making demo videos, and a brand new opportunity that has come up for us from all of our years of affiliate marketing. There are a lot of strategies packed into this one, and after you’ve listened check out our previous shows we referenced. We discuss our Unapologetic Affiliate Marketing Strategies and making Affiliate Commissions & KSTs.
“If you consider and keep your headspace in ‘What does this make possible, what can you lean into, what’s that project that you always wanted to start that you can now start?’, then that’s where really amazing things and opportunities can come out of this for you.” – Pat Flynn
