In this episode, I’m sharing my thoughts on affiliate marketing, how to find the slight edge in your business, the details of my new and exciting book club AND the importance of actually taking a break every now and again.

Listen here:

The do’s and don’ts of affiliate marketing:

  • If you throw nonsense at your people without much discernment, they’ll stop trusting your word… and then where will you be? Only promote the products that you would shout loud about even without the promise of a commission.
  • Share the difference something has made to YOU, rather than trying to con people with shiny sales speak.
  • Don’t avoid affiliate marketing simply because of its reputation. You can do this with integrity.
  • Tell your story in relation to the product, whether that’s the benefits you’ve seen yourself or a signature system you’ve developed using a particular tool.
  • Put the work in. Earn your commission. This is not about free money.

Other key takeaways:

  • What the brain knows and what the brain does are two very different things.
  • Do the things that make you feel like a person instead of a workaholic robot.
  • If you have eyes or ears, you should get a copy of The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson.
  • I started a book club!
