Money Making Method Three: Affiliate Marketing for Instant Commissions

So many of the affiliate marketing programs out there are a pain. You do the work now, but might not get paid for one, two, or three months down the line. Not everyone has the luxury of waiting that long. That’s part of the reason so many people hesitate to promote programs like Amazon-- it’s a long time before you see that paycheck.

There is definitely something to be said for programs that pay you sooner. My own Nanacast affiliate program pays on the first of the month. So you make your sales and get paid less than a month later. If you earn over $150 before the month is out, you get paid that next Friday. A week later is much better than most affiliate programs. My products also tend to convert very well-- and promoting the Earn 1K a Day membership means you get paid every single month without lifting a finger.

But, what if you need money even more quickly? Luckily, there are instant commission affiliate networks out there. That means you get paid at the same time someone buys something you promote.

Let’s say you’re promoting a product that is $20 and the product owner has it setup so you earn 50%. A customer buys, and you receive $10 in your PayPal account right away. Not bad-- not bad at all. In some cases, the affiliate network will use an alternating pay system. So the product owner would get the $20 the first time and you would get the $20 the second time. Either way, you’re earning cash straight into your PayPal account on the very same day you promote.

What You Need

At this point, you really just need to make sure you have a PayPal account set up. Most people in Internet marketing have one already, so you should be good to go. PayPal makes it very simple to withdraw the money to your bank account-- it takes just a few days to arrive, depending on your bank’s policies. You can also apply to get a business debit card. You can then go to any ATM and withdraw the money you’ve earned, the very same day. This is extremely helpful when you’re in a cash crunch, or even when you want to make sure you only spend what you earn in your business.

An Overview of the Method

This strategy is sort of a piggyback strategy, where you’ll promote something that is in line with something that is a major launch right now. You’re going to ride the inevitable success of a very popular product, with something that is very appealing to those who read what you have to say.

Affiliate Network Choices

These days, there are several affiliate programs that give you the option to receive instant commissions. You’re in a time crunch, and I realize that the more choices you have, the harder it becomes to make a decision. With that said, I recommend you look into and

Many product creators use these to promote their (generally) high converting low priced products. Many of them have an upsell they pay a commission on as well. Generally, your commission will be well over half the product price, with the opportunity to earn more with the upsell. An upsell is generally a higher priced, highly related product the buyer is presented with after they buy the front end product.

Go ahead and browse and now, to get a feel for both. Read through their help documents and intro pages to introduce yourself to how they work. You should note that WarriorPlus does charge a sub-$5 monthly fee to join their affiliate network. JVzoo is free.

Don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to pick something to promote right now. Your only goal is to sign up for the networks and enter your PayPal information and other relevant information so that is all good to go.

What Kind of Products Can You Promote?

I should mention that the vast majority of the products on these sites are in the Internet marketing niche. You’ll want to choose very high quality products, of course, but you can use the fact that people in this market buy a lot of products to your advantage. There are other markets you can go after, but the IM niche is definitely great for fast cash.

Don’t know a lot about marketing at this point? Do not get discouraged. Your viewpoint is just as valuable (maybe even more so) as those who have years of experience. You know what it’s like to be new and to be searching for ‘the one’ method that is going to make a difference. You’re going to find a product that will really resonate with people and help them achieve their goals.

I’ll go a lot more in depth into how you can find these products to promote, so don’t worry about that. I’m going to cover the ‘piggyback’, fast cash strategy first. Then, I’ll cover another method so you can go with what will work best for you.

The Piggyback Strategy

This strategy is a lot of fun, and it can be really effective for earning cash into your PayPal account really quickly.

Take a look at your email inbox. If you’re like many Internet marketers, then it’s probably full of new promotions, products, and opportunities. There are so many really great product launches out there-- ones people can’t stop talking about. I’m talking about ‘guru’ launches that are generally high in price. These are a big commitment-- and they tend to get a flurry of activity going among marketers and those who want to earn more money.

How can you use that to your advantage? First, you need to figure out which products are hot right now, what they offer, and what kind of people are interested in the topic. Ideally, people will be talking about the product on all the forums and will be really excited and ready to buy the product. You want something that is so juicy, that even the people who aren’t going to be able to afford the product are talking about it-- something they dream about and really want.

Why do you care what the hot product is, if you aren’t going to get instant commissions? Because you are going to find a comparable product, on the same topic, at one of the networks that offers an instant commission.

You are going to take this opportunity and excitement and turn it into a chance to earn more money, right now. There are so many people who are sick of the high price tags, or even some of the big-name gurus. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t interested in the methods.

Product creators know this too. They often create nice, smaller products on hot topics, related to big-launch products on the horizon. They cash in because people are really likely to buy products on this topic right now. You can cash in as their affiliate.
