Affiliates - Earn 75% Commission!



Welcome to my resource page for affiliates. My product The Minimalist Exercise And Nutrition Program is one that you can feel confident promoting to a very large target audience of people interested in learning how best to achieve superior long term health using the most effective and efficient approach to working out and eating healthy.

Please use the resources on this page to help with your promotions and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about promoting my program.

How Much Will I Make?

When you promote The Minimalist Exercise And Nutrition Program as an affiliate you will be making a healthy 75 percent commission on every sale that you refer. The main product that you will be promoting is The Minimalist Exercise And Nutrition Program, but you will receive commissions for any other of my products that are promoted to the prospect as well.

The program currently sells for $37. This means you get to keep approximately $24.92 of every sale (once my sales processor takes its small cut).

If you are familiar with pay per click advertising, and know how to create adverts with appropriately chosen keywords, you can run profitable campaigns while you sleep! Or, if you prefer not to dabble with pay per click, you can simply promote my book on your blog, create a page on Squidoo or HubPages, or write an article and place it on EzineArticles or any other popular article directory. These are just some of the more obvious zero-cost promotional ideas.

There are, of course, lots of other places that you can use to promote the book without spending a penny.

How Often Will I Be Paid?

Because ClickBank® manages the affiliate program for my program (see the next section) the customer actually pays ClickBank directly and they in turn pay you. That means your commission is credited to you the moment the sale is processed.

You are never waiting on me to pay you. ClickBank pays you every two weeks, like clockwork. If there are any refunds to be handled (very infrequent with my program), ClickBank handles that too.

It is a simple system and it works incredibly well for both affiliates and merchants.

Affiliate URL To Sales Page

Because I am using ClickBank to sell my book you only need to sign up as a ClickBank affiliate, get your affiliate nickname and you will be ready to go. The affiliate URL you will need to use to promote the book will look just like this:

http://nickname.minimalism.hop.clickbank.net/

All you need to do is replace "nickname" in this URL with your actual ClickBank nickname.

Note that this STANDARD affiliate URL takes visitors directly to the SALES PAGE for the product. You can also find other URLs on this page that work as hoplinks but which take the visitor to an opt-in page where they can obtain a free report that promotes the product.

ClickBank also allows you to specify an optional tracking ID, so that you can figure out which campaigns are making you sales. I strongly recommend that you get into the habit of keeping tabs on your referrals this way, since in the long run it will help you establish profitable campaigns. ClickBank allows you to specify a tracking ID with the query string variable tid, so that if your tracking ID was getfit for a particular campaign (say a PPC keyword like get fit), then you would add tracking like this for that campaign:

http://nickname.minimalism.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=getfit

On the remainder of this page you will find material to help you with your promotions.

Blog & Article Swatches

Feel free to use the following promotional copy as blog posts or short articles. I recommend that you rewrite these a little, especially if you want them to be ranked by the search engines (which like unique content). But if you already have a readership you can elect to post these pretty much as is if you like.

The FIRST article uses your hoplink to take the reader to the SQUEEZE PAGE that can be used to offer the visitor my free report entitled "Achieve Double The Results In Half The Workout Time".
Note About Which Affiliate URL To Use
Although you will find in these promotional articles and emails the hoplink that takes the prospect to a squeeze page (because these pieces all promote the free report) you can always CHANGE the emphasis of the email (or article) if you want, and promote the sales page instead. In that case you would use the standard hoplink.

However you will probably find your conversion rate tends to be higher when sending prospects to the squeeze page. This is because the prospect will see the sales page anyway (right after opting in) and they will be marketed to in the days ahead using the auto responder sequence designed to promote this product. Your affiliate URL will appear on follow up emails that go out during this time.

Note About Tracking Variables
In all of the affiliate URLs appearing in the articles (and in the email swipes below), the tid variable represents the standard ClickBank tracking variable which is NEVER passed through to our landing page.

So, if you want to have your tracking ID recorded as a "lifetime cookie" use the additional ttid variable that we can then append to hoplinks in promotional emails (as the tid variable) along with your Clickbank affiliate nickname.

Email Swatches

One of the benefits of promoting this product is that EVERYONE finds it hard to get the best possible results from their health and fitness routines, whether this involves working out, trying to eat healthy, or doing both.

That means no matter what your list may be interested in specifically, they are likely to find this subject - their long-term health - hard to ignore. That means you can broach the subject with them and use the special report squeeze page to get them to take action. From there, my automated follow up auto responder sequence will do the job of alerting them to The Minimalist Exercise And Nutrition Program.

Or you can send them straight to the sales page. However, the squeeze page approach is likely to afford you the best results.

This email swipe is intended to be used when you want to send a prospect to the SQUEEZE PAGE which can be seen here

Affiliate Conduct

Before you start promoting my product, I only have one request: Please don't "spam" people.

And I am not just talking about the illegal kind (see the clarification on spamming below).

I am also talking about the overall approach taken to promoting my products. Please make sure that you are not being "hypey", or unrealistic when you contact your subscribers or client-base, publish ads/articles or otherwise drive targeted traffic.

Your target audience should be anyone interested in learning how best to improve the state of their health using the most effective and efficient means of physical activity and nutritional principles to do so.

OK, good luck with your promotions.

And don't forget, if you have any questions about promotional activities, feel free to contact me and I will get back to you shortly thereafter (though do note that I am based in New Zealand, so I could well be asleep when you email :)
Sincerely,

Carolyn Hansen
