Tip - Create A Free Ecourse
Affiliate Tip - Create A Free Ecourse
Free ecourses are a win-win situation for both you and your visitors.
The ecourse is a great way to capture your visitors’ email
address and provide them with content that they were looking for
while also offering your affiliate products repeatedly.
Your visitors will appreciate receiving the information they were
looking for in their inbox every few days.
An ecourse is generally a series of 5 to 7 related articles on
a particular topic that you load into your autoresponder. You will
be able to incorporate one or more affiliate products in each lesson
of the ecourse, while providing your reader with great information.
I like to use an ecouse to promote one particular affiliate product
throughout the entire ecourse. These are usually products that pay
me a decent commission per sale. They also tend to be pricier items
that the customer may not want to buy on a whim from a stranger.
The ecourse allows me to show my readers that I know what I am talking
about and gives me a chance to gain their trust by establishing
myself as an expert in the field that the ecourse covers.
Of course you can also promote several related affiliate products,
in your ecourse. Each of them could provide a solution for a problem
that you are addressing in your ecourse.
Determine what topic or related topics you want to cover in your
ecourse. Start by writing an introduction article that gives your
subscriber an idea of the overall topic and what you will be covering
over the next few days. Next you launch into your actual lessons,
or articles and finish your ecourse with a quick recap and some
information on where they go from here. This could involve recommending
additional resource books, products or sites (which will of course
pay you a commission if they buy) or offering them more great information
on your own website.
Once you have your content ready, load the individual lessons in
your favorite autoresponder (like aweber.com) and add a signup box
to your site. Or to be even more effective, create a separate landing
page for the ecourse that highlights the benefits of the course
and what the reader will learn. You can get subscribers by linking
from your main page to the landing page, writing articles that use
the link to the ecourse sign-up page in your byline, or by purchasing
ppc or other advertisements.
Watch your affiliate income grow with every ecourse you create
and with every new subscriber that joins your ecourse. The beauty
of creating ecourses is that you do the work once, and your ecourse
will continue promoting your affiliate products for as long as you
allow people to sign up. Gotta love passive income.
