Affiliates - Earn 75% Commission!


Welcome to my resource page for affiliates. My product "Fat Loss For Keeps" is one that you can feel confident promoting to a very large target audience of people interested in eating right and getting rid of those unnecessary pounds that push a healthy lifestyle just beyond reach.

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 book.

How Much Will I Make?


When you promote "Fat Loss For Keeps" as an affiliate you will be making a healthy 75 percent commission on every sale that you refer. The book 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 ebook (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 book), ClickBank handles that too.

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

Affiliate URL


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.fatlossfor.hop.clickbank.net/

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

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 rapid for a particular campaign (say a PPC keyword like rapid fat loss secrets), then you would add tracking like this for that campaign:

http://nickname.fatlossfor.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=rapid

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.









Email Swatches


If you have a list that responds to the fitness and healthy-living niche then you can use the following emails to let people know about the book.





Rebrandable Ebook


If you would like to offer your prospects a high-quality ebook on a theme closely related to fat loss, you can grab my Special Blood Sugar Report, and have your ClickBank affiliate link already embedded into the book so that you will be credited for the Fat Loss For Keeps referrals in the book. Better yet, you are not even required to download any rebranding software - your affiliate link is generated on-the-fly within the book before you even download it!

Simply click on the following link to open up the rebranding page. You will be given the opportunity to register as a rebranding affiliate of mine. Then supply your ClickBank nickname and the hard work is done for you:


This ebook contains links back to the home page of this site. Those links will be replaced with your ClickBank affiliate URL.

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 people who are interested in getting in shape using a set of techniques that promote weight loss in a sensible fashion at a sensible rate for long term sustainability. This is the audience for whom I have written, so you will get the highest conversions if you presell them on this notion of weight loss that they can enjoy for years to come.

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
