I 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. Russell is the author of:
It’s a tool that can help businesses (and affiliates) convert leads into customers much easier.
Does ClickFunnels Pay Recurring Commissions?
My commission level at ClickFunnels is 40%. 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. Russell Brunson has created almost a cult following, so that’s a lot of loyal customers all needing a tool to improve their business.
What about ClickFunnels High Ticket Affiliate Commissions?
I told you earlier.. Russell is a genius. He is also an affiliate himself.
He knows the game.
He knows how to create irresistible offersthat people want to promote.
Many of the Clickfunnels products are actually training courses or annual packages that can be bought for a one off payment.
He uses value ladders to step up his product offering. Starting with a book and ending on a mastermind group (the inner circle) which costs a whopping $50k.
From an affiliates point of view this gives you an idea of how ClickFunnels pays for one off commissions…
Expert Secrets Physical Book – Commission of $1
One Funnel Away Challenge (30 day online course) – Commission of $100
Funnel Scripts (Copywriting software) – Commission of $318.80
Funnel Builder Secrets – Commission of $798.80
Some pretty impressive high ticket numbers isn’t there !?
ClickFunnels also favor sticky cookies – which means that if you signed someone up for a book and later on they decided to buy 12 months subscription, unless they clicked on another persons link in the interim, you would get the payout for the 12 months sub too!
Nice little commission surprises!
Who Are The Most Successful ClickFunnels Affiliates?
Over the last 12 months I have dived into all of the ClickFunnels sub communities, and undertook training from some of the leading affiliates.
I even found my own mentor, Zach Crawford, who is a hugely successful ClickFunnels affiliate.
Whilst many people baulk at the cost of training, you need to understand how much of an investment in yourself this is. You are paying for the support, guidance, and knowledge that someone has spent years building up.
I do understand.
I used to try and do everything for free.
Paying for Zachs course was the scariest thing I have ever done, but equally the best business decision I have ever made.
Final Thoughts On Promoting ClickFunnels High Ticket Affiliate Program
There are many affiliate programs out there, and you will find success stories in most.
As much as I knock Amazons affiliate program, there are plenty of people that have created rewarding niche sites. However they rely on numbers.
As a beginner to affiliate marketing you have a long road ahead of you creating content.
Blogs & YouTube are slow growers.
Long term they can be really good earners, but you are going to have to work hard to get them to that point.
The advantage of high ticket affiliate programs is that you don’t need as many people to buy.
You can make ONE sale at 50% commission ($997 product) and earn $498
Or for that same amount, you can try smaller affiliate programs and need a whopping 664 sales at 5% commission ($15 product)
