ClickFunnels)?7Final Thoughts On Promoting ClickFunnels High Ticket Affiliate ProgramDifferent Affiliate Program TypesI assume if you are reading this then you know what Affiliate Marketing is, but if not….Affiliate Marketing is recommending products/services and receiving a commission should someone purchase via your link.Many retailers, software providers, course creators also run affiliate schemes.These affiliate schemes have many variables, two of the ones you need to take note of are:Is it a one off commission payment or recurring payments?What is the payout? (set amount or a percentage)For example, Amazoncan pay around 1-5% one off commission if someone buys via your link, nothing major, but people trust Amazon and know they will be price competitive so people are more likely to buy (brand trust).Whereas a software provider may provide a more lucrative commission (High Ticket) or even a regular recurring commission (monthly payment), one of which is ClickFunnels.What is ClickFunnels?Clickfunnelsis more niche than Amazon. It is a company owned by marketing genius and entrepreneur, Russell Brunson. Their aim is to create tools and training that help businesses generate and convert leads into customers. So they have various products:Clickfunnels itself which is a webpage builder – specifically for creating funnels – landing pages, membership sites, lead funnels, sales funnels, eCommerce websites and so on.However they are also big in the sales and marketing training arena.

If you are just getting started then its 30%, and you have to apply to be an affiliate. Tighter regulations changed the scheme but its still very rewarding.Some of their products will pay you more, for example, the One Funnel Away Challenge pays 100% of the $100 it costs to partake in that challenge.If someone signs up to Clickfunnels via my link, then I will earn 40% each month that they are a member. Many people have made huge sums of money promoting Clickfunnels because of this. A standard membership will cost $97 p/m – of which I will earn $38.80 each month for that person. If they signed up to the premium package, Clickfunnels Platinum then I would earn 40% of $297, a cool $118.80 per month.Now you can see why the big affiliates have been attracted to ClickFunnels for a while.The best part is, it’s a great product.

ClickFunnels)?I will summarise this as although affiliate marketing is a simple concept, its much more complicated on how to be successful.There are multiple ways to achieve this (many of which are discussed in the Clickfunnels affiliate bootcamp) however, it is about creating content that helps people.Don’t be that guy that promotes awful products that pay well. Be ethical and promote the products and services that you believe in and use yourself.To me, affiliate marketing is about giving value, showing your audience the tools to make their life better. Supporting them with content and guidance.It is about solving problems, and easing pains.High ticket affiliate programs often require that extra touch. Whether that’s through the content you create or the bonuses you add to your irresistible offer.Generally you are asking someone to part with a significant amount of money, so make them understand why and put them at ease with that cost.For example, I promote Zach’s course.I do this because I am a member myself. He has invested so much time and money building his career and his own personal development and put that all into his course.He adds to that by providing a community, the opportunity to promote his course, and numerous other bonuses that allow you to get started fast.A couple of sales and the course is paid for.READ MORE: FAQ Zach Crawford’s Secret Affiliate Marketing HacksWhilst many people baulk at the cost of training, you need to understand how much of an investment in yourself this is.
