UDEMY Sales Page:
Looking to Make Money Online Passively?
You can in just one week – using the Amazon Associates Program.
Imagine earning a commission on other people’s purchases every single day. In 2015 alone, Amazon sold over 5 billion items and 40% of that was sold by 3rd-party sellers (i.e. affiliates, such as much myself.) Consumers are going to buying products regardless. Why not grab a piece of the pie yourself?
Setting up with the Amazon Affiliate Program is not the hard part. The challenging part is knowing which products to promote so that you have a fighting chance of ranking on the first page of Google.

[Original] Tired of Having This Annoying Problem?
[Modified] Isn’t it about time you turn things around?
[Version2] Isn’t it about time you learn how it’s done?
[Original] This Sub-Heading Has One Job: Make Your Visitor Want to Keep Reading!
[Modified] It’s called Affiliate Marketing: And You Can Be Setup For Business In Just 1 Day!
[Original] This is a “Hybrid” long-form sales page where we combine the best qualities of classic long-form sales letters with some visual aspects that the most successful online sales pages make use of. At this stage of the page, we want to arouse the reader’s curiosity, so they want to keep reading.
[Modified] It’s been said again and again by various money gurus that if you want to become financially successful then you need something to sell. You see, most people think that they have nothing to offer for sale and so they resort to selling their ‘time’ by working for someone else 9-5.
[Original] If you use the page well, there will be a lot of text and a lot of content. And that’s a good thing: it gives you the opportunity to tell a story, connect with your reader and explain your offer in great detail.
[Modified]But clearly this is not the only way. I mean there are so many people out there creating and selling their own products and services. Who says you can’t be one of them?
[Original] But no one wants to read that much text! If that’s something you’re worried about with a sales page like this, keep in mind that the closer someone gets to making a purchase decision, the more likely they are to hunt for specific information. Your most valuable prospects are more likely to leave when there’s not enough information than if there’s too much
[Modified] But I really don’t have anything to sell! If that’s something you’re worried about, then you are in the right place because I am going to show you how you can successfully join millions of other people who make a decent living by promoting other people’s products and services. In fact, once you see behind the scenes you’ll be amazed how much of the internet is focused on affiliate marketing.
[Original] By the way: short paragraphs and highlight boxes like the one above are a great way to keep the text light and easy to read. Don’t overwhelm your visitors with a “wall of text”.
[Modified]By the way: some of the largest online marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay depend on people just like you to promote their products and services and help increase their sales.
[Original]Use Sub-Headings Like this One Frequently. This Makes Your Page “Skim-Friendly”.
[Modified]Learn Exactly What People Want To Buy Online. And Learn How You Can Make Money From Their Purchases.
[Original]Some of your visitors will be readers and others will be scanners. The readers will start at the top and read every. single. word. until they reach the end of the page (or until they can’t wait any longer and decide to buy). The scanners, on the other hand, will skip about looking for things that catch their attention.
[Modified]What I am describing here is called affiliate marketing. You are marketing someone else’s product for them and through an agreement that you have with them, you are essentially an affiliate of theirs. There are many benefits to being an affiliate marketer (many of which really only start to shine when you start).
[Original]Keep in mind: the scanners want to be convinced just as much as the readers do, they are just looking for information in a different way.
[Modified]Keep in mind: the internet is on 24 hours a day, so just because you need to sleep doesn’t mean your business has to stop making you money.
[Original]What you’re reading right now a text block consisting of a heading and a section of text. Break up all of your content into blocks like this to make everything easier to read, easier to understand and easier to navigate. You’ll also notice that none of the paragraphs here are more than 4-5 lines high (on a large screen, anyway. Yes – this page is fully mobile responsive).
[Modified]Just to give you an idea of how big of a market we are talking about here: in 2014 alone, Amazon sold 5 billion items and 40% of that was sold by 3rd-party seller (i.e. affiliates). There is absolutely no reason why you can’t be taking home part of that pie. And perhaps the greatest thing about affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to stock, ship, or touch a single product in order to make a sale.
[Original]Don’t Jump to the Sale too Quickly: Long Form is All About Building Rapport
[Modified]Money is Nothing More than a Measure of Value: Give People What they Want and the Money Will Follow
[Original]This dark background is another way to create visual variety on your page and keep it interesting. If you use a dark background with light text, keep it short. Light text on a dark background is harder on the eyes than dark text on a light background.
[Modified]Think about it – if you can help someone make a decision, find the right service, or pick out the right product, you are adding value. Affiliate marketing is simply the process of demonstrating the benefits of the offer you are promoting to your target market.
[Original]The Simple Storytelling Rule for Sales: Convince First, Sell Second!
[Modified]Why The Right Steps Makes All The Difference: It’s easy to get bogged down in the details!
[Original]Remember that long form sales pages are about relating to your reader. Don’t jump right in and start talking about your product.
[Modified]I remember when I first started out, I got lost in the sea of scattered information on affiliate marketing. Sure there are a lot of sites out there. But it’s hard to know which direction to take and which ones lead to a dead-end.
[Original]Instead, tell a story. Write about how things feel. Write about problems, frustrations, experiences, triumphs. Think about a movie or TV series – it’s all about the characters and how much you care about them. And you only care about them if you can relate to them.
[Modified]One thing that I find with beginner affiliates (and I was no different back then) was that I just wanted to know what works and to get on with it. But with every step forward, the learning curve seemed to get steeper.
[Original]Trying to sell too soon is the most commonly made mistake – not only on long form sales pages. Even if your page is short and visual, without relating to your customer, you can’t make sales.
[Modified]Trial and error is time consuming and a money waster – without a simple and easy to understand guide, I carved my own path success but it wasn’t without its own headaches and failures along the way.
[Original]Also remember that what you’re looking at is only a template. Maybe you want to spend more time on the story. Maybe you want to add several more headline + text blocks, to really elaborate and evoke emotions. With Thrive, you can easily do so (just duplicate some of the existing blocks). Let the template inspire you, but don’t let it limit you.
[Modified]As with any venture, when you manage to find a solution for one step, you are quickly required to know what the next that follows is. And as you make your way through the decision making process, one wrong or misguided step can take you on a very long and expensive route. The result is you end up having to go back and take another path until you find the one that is correct. This is where many people give up and ultimately not succeed at making money.
[Original]Using Image Sections to Add a Visual Element
[Modified]Let’s look at the required steps to succeed at Affiliate Marketing
[Original]Below is an example of a simple image section: use images or icons to illustrate a point you’re making. This can assist in your story telling or be used to showcase features (although only if you use it further down the page, after the product reveal).
[Modified]In order to make money via affiliate marketing, you need to make sure you are take the right steps in the in areas below. All three aspects have to come together successfully in order to generate the results you want. Do one incorrectly and the rest won’t matter.
[Original]Keep it simple. You can use the icon feature in Content Builder for the images.
[Modified]Niche selection and targeting the right keywords.
[Original]Don’t over-explain in these text sections below each individual image.
[Modified]Website development and content creation.
[Original]Let the images do the talking. If something needs more explaining, add a text block below.
[Modified]Search Engine Optimization and Marketing.
[Original]Get Your Points Across by Using Lists
[Modified]Putting it together and Making Sense of it All
[Original] Create a nice list of points here.
[Modified] How do I find out what people are searching for online?
[Original]What are the points about? Anything you want. This could be a summary of the page so far, for example (remember those scanners?).
[Modified]This is where most beginners get it wrong. It’s not about what you know or want to sell, but what people are looking for in the first place.
[Original]Make your content easy to digest.
[Modified]How do I know if they are looking to buy or just browsing?
[Original]You can think of the layouting/formatting task on a sales page in this way: the goal is to present nice, appetizing, bite-sized morsels for your reader. Don’t hit them over the head with big words or long paragraphs. Make it easy and fun to experience your sales page.
[Modified]Just because people search for something online, doesn’t necessarily mean that they are going to buy something. It’s absolutely critical to know which search terms will generate results and which ones are going to waste your time and energy.
[Original]Once you know this, you’ll want my product.
[Modified]How do I find the best products to promote?
[Original]That’s the result you should aim for with your content. Once your reader understands the story and all the points you’ve made, they will truly understand the value of your product (or service, or whatever you’re selling).
[Modified]Knowing the right type of products to promote is equally as important as knowing who is looking for it in the first place. Promoting the wrong items can generate dismal results and leave you scratching your head and wondering why you aren’t making the money you expected to make.
[Original]In this Text Block, Start Transitioning to the Solution You’re Offering…
[Modified]That’s just the tip of the iceberg. You need to have answers to these questions…
[Original]You’ve set the scene. You’ve captured your visitors’ attention. You’ve related to them and told them everything they need to know to truly understand what your product is about. Now it’s time to start introducing them to the product.
[Modified]If you are one of the top 1% that correctly choose a niche and they the right keywords. You are now tasked with knowing how to create a website. Do you create it yourself or do you pay a professional? Can you use a website builder or should you use a content management system? What’s the difference?
[Original]Keep one thing in mind: your product is the solution. At first, don’t talk about it in terms of a product. Talk about how you found a solution and about how this same solution can help others too. Why do all this? Because if you set it up right, you will be the opposite of the slimy, used car salesman stereotype we all despise… you will not be pushing product, you’ll be doing everyone a favor.
[Modified]Once you’ve managed to settle on a solution for your website, you’ll actually need to populate it with useful content. How do I make sure my content is great enough that people will find it useful? What if I am a terrible writer or not well-versed in the niche I have selected? Is there a way I can have someone write useful content for me?
[Original]Here is a Smaller Sub-Heading for Extra Emphasis
[Modified]If people can’t find you online then it was all for nothing
[Original]Try mixing paragraphs with sub-headings of two different sizes (H2 and H3). You can use smaller sub-headings like the one above to make an important point or for quotes that relate to your story.
[Modified]It sucks but it’s true! You can have the best site, the best content, and the best products out there but if people can’t find you when they search, then what’s the point?
[Original]Ever notice how non-fiction authors love to use quotes throughout their books? That’s because quotes are a nice change of page and they lend authority and gravitas to what you’re saying.
[Modified]But how do I ensure that all my hard work gets found by the search engines and ranked high up on their lists? Your success (or failure) will depend on the amount of traffic your website receives. And not just any traffic. You need targeted traffic. In other words people who are searching for exactly what you have to offer them.
[Original]Similarly, you can use subtle text highlights, text boxes, short paragraphs, sub-headings and other text formatting to draw your reader’s eye to important parts of the text. This also helps break up the page, to prevent wall-of-text-syndrome.
[Modified]Targeted traffic is very valuable because it is the prerequisite to making money. Therefore, you can either buy targeted traffic (i.e. advertise on search engines) or more preferably you want to organically rank (or show up) at the top of the search results for free.

[Original]Now it’s time to present your offer as the perfect solution to everything you’ve been talking about so far in your story.
[Modified]In this guide, I have covered all the steps you need to take to be up and running in 2 days!
[Original]While we were holding back before, it’s now time to be very specific. Talk about your product, what it is, what your customer gets when they purchase. At this point, after all the buildup, your readers really want to know what you have to offer, so don’t hold back.
[Modified]At the risk of being frowned upon by fellow affiliate marketers, I have decided to teach you how you can do exactly what we do on a daily basis to bring in money. And it’s not just the money, it’s passive income. You do the work upfront and only once, yet the compensation continues to come in for many months after.
[Original]Show a product image: it’s always a good idea to have a visual representation of your product. It makes it more tangible and more “real” in your reader’s mind.

[Original]The power of the points list: use this list to emphasize the most important benefits of your product.
[Modified]The instructional Video: Shows you how to perform the ever-so-important step of choosing your keywords carefully in under 30 minutes!
[Original]Benefits over features: for every feature your product has, try to translate it into a benefit (i.e. a positive end-result your customer will get).
[Modified]See the actual results: we’ll take you through the steps to create a profitable affiliate marketing site from start to finish. This way you can see what was involved and what the finished product looks like.
How do I ensure that all my hard work gets found by search engines and ranked? How do I make sure I get enough traffic to my site to make a difference?
Any of these questions can stop a person from going any further in fear or getting stuck somewhere along the way. Or maybe you might think that it’s just too hard to do and not worthwhile. I did in the end succeed and come out ahead of many of those that didn’t bother to go any further but it wasn’t without it’s own headaches and failures. Trial and error is time consuming and a money waster and inefficient at best.
What we talk about it timeless, yes things will move around etc, but affiliate marketing is not going anywhere anytime soon.

[modified] A Few More of Our Clients and Their Experiences
[original] “Keep displaying testimonials for social proof.”
[modified] “Everything is covered – from the concept of money…to SEO”
[original] “Here, we have a second testimonials section, right after the purchase section. Now that we’ve asked the reader to pull the trigger, they might feel some resistance and testimonials can help reassure them.
It’s Time to Start Addressing Your Visitor’s Last-Minute Objections
But my website making skills are Nonexistent
After the first call to action, use testimonials, case studies, more points lists and more text blocks to address all possible objections your visitors may have. Knowing these objections is very important… and you can learn all about them by talking to your customers and visitors. Give them a way to communicate with you and you’ll quickly learn what’s on your reader’s mind as she goes through this page.
And that’s okay! We designed our training material from scratch so that we could cover everything you need to know, every step of the way. In total, you have access to over 6 hours of instructional videos that show you step-by-step everything you need to know: From where to buy your domain and web hosting, to setting up your website for the very first time. You be rest assured that we have spent hundreds of hours working through each detail to make sure we didn’t skip anything. Plus, if something is still not clear, we always encourage our clients to get a hold of us and discuss their questions and concerns. We want you to succeed.
Use Sub-Headings Before Every Major Objection You Address
I already know how to design a website. Why can’t I just register with Amazon Associates and start promoting products immediately?
People are risk averse. We dread making a mistake and wasting our time and money on something that turns out to be rubbish. This is the part of the sales page where you can appease all those worries. One of the most important things you must learn about people in your market is what kinds of objections they have, so that you can effectively address them here.
Sure you can do that. In fact, that’s how many people first try to go about affiliate marketing. But here’s a question: How do you know which products to promote? It’s easy to say that the iPhone is a very popular product among consumers so I’ll just promote it. However, a quick Google search reveals that there are 1.4 billion websites that currently rank for that search phrase. And therein lies the rub. What chance do you have at ranking on the first page of Google for a very popular product? In truth, your chances are slim-to-none. So what can you do? You can go after less competitive keywords that such as Wireless Pet Containment System that only has 38,000 websites ranking for the term. What’s more is that if you ranked number for that search phrase, you stand to gain $78/daily in free (organic) traffic from Google. Increase the number of these types of keywords you go after by 10, 50, 100, and you can quickly see how you can earn a nice passive income stream by going after these low-competition but high-value keywords. On the flip side, if you go out and target random keywords that you believe are good keywords with no definitive research, you can stand to waste a lot of time, effort, and money. You see, it takes just as much time to target a useless keyword as it does to go after a highly profitable one. Just why bother with duds? Our training material allows you narrow your search on a handful of profitable keywords and you then go forth knowing that all the time and energy you are about to spend is going to be well worth it.
Advantages vs Disadvantages
Amazon Affiliate Website Builder vs Doing It Yourself
Here’s a section that you can use for many purposes. For example, you can use it to showcase how your solution is better than other solutions out there. Or, compare the problems your reader is facing right now with the great solutions they’ll enjoy once they purchase.
As you are probably aware, there are many Amazon affiliate site builder software out and themes out there that claim to have you setup with your very own online affiliate marketing website in a matter of minutes. Although they do populate content from directly from Amazon this causes a major issue in the eyes of Google. Duplicate content. You see, Google is focused on one thing when it comes to their search engine. To return high quality and relevant search results to its users. Think about it. This is why you use Google over the other search engines yourself. As a result, when Google detects the original content was first published on Amazon and you site has simply copied the content, it does not want to annoy it’s end users by showing them the duplicate content. So you site will simply not rank anywhere near the first page. To get around this, these site builders have now added the functionality of spinning the content which essentially means to switch out words from sentence for their equivalent in the hopes that Google will not detect the duplicate content. Unfortunately for those website owners, Google’s algorithms are quickly closing in on this technique and it is not worth pursuing. Time and time again, Google has said that the best way to get your site noticed is to have high quality and engaging content. There is no alternative. When you go through our training program, you learn how to build a website from scratch and how to generate content the proper way so that it stands the test of time. In addition, there are search engine optimization technique that are far more superior than anything a pre-made software can ever claim to achieve for you. So in short, do it right and do it once.
