I am struggling to make this e-mail sound kind and helpful instead of harsh and critical, but it’s a touchy subject: affiliate marketing.
Listen: I get approached all the time by well-meaning newbies who want me to help them get started in Internet marketing. They want to sell my products as an affiliate. They then expect me to become their private tutor (for free) and teach them the Internet marketing business (for free).
Their logic is that it behooves me to do this since once they are established, they will sell lots of my products and make me a pile of money.
I hate to burst your bubble, but that virtually never happens.
All large and mid-size Internet marketers know the 99/1 rule: that 99% of your affiliate revenues will come from 1% of your affiliates.
This 1% is often referred to as “super affiliates”
