Bartering For Leads
Let’s move on to bartering for leads.
Bartering for leads is a really great way to generate the highest quality leads you can generate besides having your own product and having an affiliate program.
In actuality, it is almost the same or identical to that, except for you are NOT selling your own product.
Here's how it works...
What you want to do is go to a marketer who does product launches, who is bigger than you online.
They don’t have to be huge; you could just go to someone who does WSO’s, for example.
If you go to someone who does WSO’s often, you can say this, “I’ll do customer service for your launch,” or “I’ll write the sales page for your launch,” or “I’ll create bonuses for your launch,” or “I’ll help create the products for your launch,” or “I’ll help create buzz using social media for your launch,” or “I’ll help get JV’s on board for your launch” or, “I’ll do (something) for your launch in exchange for leads.”
So you’re not asking for money, you’re asking for leads.
You’re not asking for them export leads to you; we’re talking about just placing some kind of bonus on yours on their download page that customers have to opt-in for, which you get the lead for.
For example, this one time I did one of these bartering for leads deals with a top marketer, and for his bonuses on his actual sales page, I advertised my bonuses that they’re going to have to opt-in for.
So on the download page there was a link to my squeeze page, which allowed them to opt-in to download the bonuses.
On the page after the squeeze page was the download page for the bonuses.
I didn’t send them through any kind of sales funnel, but the thing is, you get a list of red-hot buyers when you do this.
I’m talking about scorching hot buyers.
That first week of having that list you want to promote your highest converting thing, do a webinar or do something that you made money within the past because this is the time to sell them while they’re the hottest and they’re buyers (you have gained trust by them listening or watching your bonus, depending on what the product is, so they will be responsive).
Actually, the way I came up with the bonus for these kinds of launches is I would just use private label rights.
So I use private label rights material that was a video course that I didn’t even record, but I had rights to give away as a bonus to a paid product.
So that's something to think about.
One of my best tactics was solo ads, one was ad swaps, and at one point click banking.
I did click banking on a big scale.
Bartering for leads was a huge, huge tactic that I’ve done before.
It’s not a current phase I’m going through but it works like a charm.
It’s not going anywhere.
It will always be effective.
It’s a very simple tactic where you barter your skills with a product launcher who adds your bonus to their download page and the customers have to opt-in for it.
It’s not like relying on Google for leads because they can slap that away somehow for you.
And it's not getting less effective like ad swaps are for example.
Your Own Affiliate Program
Another way to generate red-hot quality leads is by having your own affiliate program.
Now I’m going to tell you that I’ve mainly generated leads through using Rapid Action Profits.
I know that a lot of people in recent days have moved on to other scripts, such as Warriorplus.com, WSO Pro or JVZoo.com or DigiResults.com, but I like trusty old Rapid Action Profits.
It may cost $197, whereas I bought it for something like $297.
It’s always being updated so it’s not out of date with technology or anything, but the reason why I like Rapid Action Profits over any other is two-fold.
For one, I only have to pay a fee one time to use it.
So I pay my $197 for the script and I use it over and over and over.
Or there may be, like with WSO Pro, you have to pay a fee every time you want to start a WSO with.
I’d rather have a script like Rapid Action Profits so I can use it over and over and over.
This is just my personal opinion and preference.
Also, I think there is a lot of wisdom in what I’m about to tell you with Rapid Action Profits vs. the other solutions.
The other solutions are like affiliate networks, so when you’re recruiting affiliates to actually promote your product, they may end up promoting someone else’s product, but with Rapid Action Profits, you have complete control over the situation.
So once you show people your affiliate program, there’s only an option to promote you.
Therefore, whenever I launch a product on Rapid Action Products, the bottom of the screen I have a link that says, “Affiliates make 100% commissions.”
They click there and then they sign up for my affiliate program through Rapid Action Profits.
They can now get their link and they can then sell the product.
If I use the other programs, and I have a link at the bottom that says, “Sign up here to promote my product,” and then they go to some affiliate network, they’ll probably end up promoting some other product that they find.
They maybe will get lost trying in the sea of products trying to find mine; they give up and not promote any product at all.
The best kind of affiliate program that attracts affiliates is to have an instant PayPal commission affiliate program like the ones I’ve been talking about.
You can also use something like ClickBank, but you can’t give away 100% commissions from ClickBank.
With these other programs, you can give away 100% commissions, which is really attractive on the front end to affiliates, and then you can give 50% commission on the one-time offer, for example.
You’re making money off sales, but you are attracting affiliates that you don’t have to ethically bride much to promote for you.
If you’re giving away 100% commissions, in my mind, you’re not going to owe any other affiliates back for promoting you because you gave away 100% commissions.
Those leads that you get right away are going to be red-hot leads.
