I Might Fire My Clients (Bitten By The Affiliate Marketing Bug)

I‘m on day 3 of an affiliate promotion… and the way it’s going… I might fire my clients. This is not hyperbole.

Truth is, the best marketers on the planet…

Don’t do client work.

Why?

Because they do affiliate marketing instead

They do the exact same activities a client business would…

Minus the hassle of dealing with clients.

The best part is, they make more as an affiliate…

Than they would as a service provider.

And, the amount of money they make scales with performance.

Now, you might be thinking:

“But Nabeel, why can’t you offer a performance deal to the client?”

I have, to a bunch of them.

Only one of them took me up on it.

And that relationship didn’t work out…

Because the client wasn’t willing to do what I had to do…

To make them money.

And the clients who refused my performance deal?

They’d haggle with me on the percentage…

Even though I was the one taking all the risk.

Or, they were worried that if I succeeded…

They’d have to pay me too much money.

This is what I mean by…

The “hassle of dealing with clients”

They’re short-term greedy when they should be long-term greedy.

Here’s a perfect example:

I had a client I was doing email marketing for on retainer.

Before I showed up, there were sending zero emails.

After I took over their account, email was 33% of total revenue.

And total revenue had gone up 15%.

Plus, I made them ten times what they paid me.

That’s a 1000% return on investment.

I did this 2 months in a row…

So I’d proven I could deliver.

Now, this client was launching a new website.

And they asked me to write all the copy for it.

I told them I wouldn’t be able to write an entire website on our current retainer…

And I’d be happy to do the work if they’d pay a project fee.

I quoted a price – $7,500…

And even offered to split the payment…

Which is something I never do – I always get paid 100% upfront.

They rejected my offer out-right…

Didn’t even make a counter-offer…

And ended our relationship.

I don’t know what the f*** was going through the owners’ heads when they decided this…

But it’s a perfect example of “short-term greedy”

  • Why stop the email marketing retainer when I was giving them a 10X return?
  • Why take a massive revenue cut – from 30% via email to probably 10%?
  • Why reject my proposal when I had proven that any money they pay me would return 10-fold?
  • Why not make ask for a discount?
  • Why not ask for more favorable payment terms?

The whole experience was baffling.

Again, this is what I mean by the “hassle of dealing with clients.”

A hassle that vanishes…

When you’re an affiliate marketer.

The entire relationship dynamic changes.

When you’re a good affiliate marketer…

Clients try to sell you on promoting their products.

They’ll give you a bigger commission.

They’ll change their offer to make it more attractive to your list.

They’ll offer to cross-promote your own products to their list.

They’ll give you exclusive access others don’t get.

They’ll beg you to promote them.

And you?

You get to be a snob and…

Pick the crème de la crème of offers to promote

You’ll only promote offers that are worth your time.

F***, man, even if you’re just an “ok” marketer…

You still get the better deal…

Because you never have to “prove” yourself to clients.

You just get approved as an affiliate…

Start making sales…

And keep what you kill.

And as you gain more experience, you’ll get better at marketing.

Which means your income will automatically go up.

And you don’t have to worry about justifying your “prices” to anyone…

Because whatever they pay you…

They’re always making 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x or more.

And the best part is…

You can get started today for almost nothing.

Because this is affiliate marketing in a nutshell:

  1. Find a product you want to promote
  2. Find an audience to sell it to
  3. Sell it to them

There are literally millions of products out there people would love to buy.

And if you’re on social media, you have a built-in audience.

Selling?

It’s as simple as,

“Hey, there’s this product that does a, b, c so you can have x, y, z. If you want to buy it, here’s the link.”

What could be simpler?

With that said, if you’re looking to…

Start, scale, or grow a digital business in 2020 and beyond…
