Black Friday Tips for Affiliate Marketers

Today, we’re going to show you exactly how to make money on big sales days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You’ll want to pay attention to this live training because we’re going to break everything down for you.

Since there are a lot of websites and marketing strategies out there, you may not know who to trust or what will work for you. In order to avoid confusion, we’re going to do what makes sense.

Look at What Makes Sense

Over the next few weeks, until the end of November, there are going to be big sales. People go crazy for major holiday sales, both in stores and online. Online sales brought in around 100 million dollars an hour last holiday season.

Did you wish you could have gotten in on those sales and made money? If so, you’re not alone.

Did You Know? About 1 out of every 2 dollars spent online goes to Amazon!

People are Searching

This holiday season, people are searching for the best deals on gifts and the top things that people are buying.

For example: last year, I recommended marketing the Instant Pot, a pressure cooker that was predicted to sell big. As expected, tons of people bought the product, resulting in millions of dollars in sales. If you had a website talking about the Instant Pot, it would have made money.

The downside? Amazon’s commission is really low – about 3 percent. If the Instant Pot is $80, the commission would be $2.40. The good news is, you didn’t need to do much to earn that $2.40. All you needed to do is put up a site about the Instant Pot, why it’s great, and where people can buy it.

You Don’t Have to Use Just Amazon

What do we know about holiday shoppers?

  1. They are buying from multiple sources.
  2. They want deals!
  3. They are going to buy regardless of whether or not you’re an affiliate.

All you need to do is…

Pass the Cookie

What does this mean? When you get an affiliate link, and that link is clicked, it passes a cookie. This tells Amazon (or whatever store) that Marcus (you) sent the customer who clicked the link. It gives you credit for referring people, just because they clicked your link.

Best Buy, Target, and Walmart have cookie programs that are a bit better than Amazon’s because they last longer, which gives you a chance to make more.

Because so many people are trying to do this, you need to pass the cookie early and often.

Do Your Research

Research isn’t as difficult as it sounds. If you know how to use Google, you’re halfway there.

Then, if you Google “top selling items Black Friday 2017,” you’re the other half of the way there.

Remember how we knew that the Instant Pot would sell well last year? It wasn’t a coincidence – all you need to do is Google it. You can look up top selling items for this year, even before Black Friday, and you’ll find lots of articles about products that are predicted to sell.

We don’t have to make our own predictions for Black Friday, we just go by what the market tells us.

Get a Domain Name

Use to get a free domain name. You could name it something like “Top Black Friday Deals 2018” (which would translate to

Or, narrow it down a bit by creating a site just for a certain type of product, for example, “Best Black Friday Makeup Deals.”

Get People to Click

You want targeted traffic from people who are going to buy. Let’s say you decide to name your site, “Black Friday Cooking Deals.” You would just need to make a list of about ten products, and write a little review on each.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never used or even heard of the product before.

Any question you could have about a product has already been answered. If you go to the product page on Amazon or another shopping website, you’ll find FAQs about the product, plus reviews from people who have already bought it.

On your site, use that information to show people why they should buy the product, then give them the link where they can do that.

How to Rank with a New Site

It’s very unlikely that you’ll get free search engine rankings with a brand-new site. However, there are a few other ways to get people to view your site.

Use Social Media

People use social media to get a variety of information, including information on what to buy. You can share your new site on Facebook and encourage people to check out the deals you’ve found.

Or, you could use Pinterest. Create an image with your FAQs and a picture of the product you want to promote and post it to Pinterest. If you were using the Instant Pot example, Pinterest would be a great social media platform to use because it’s where people go to find things like recipes.

Paid Search

You can bid on “deal” words for cheap, and get paid traffic within minutes. As long as you have good content and a good ad, this can work for you.


People are likely to engage with videos, as they can be shorter and more interesting than a regular text post. If you make a video talking about the best products to buy for Black Friday, then give people the name of your website, you can get traffic.

Don’t post raw affiliate links on other sites. Post them on your site because you want visitors to come back to your site.

Viewer Questions

I’m not good with computers. Can I still learn this?

Absolutely. WordPress is very easy to use and if you use the plug-ins, it can be even easier.

Legally, do you have to disclose that yours is an affiliate link?

Yes. You can just say something like, “I’m an affiliate, and I get paid to provide cool stuff.” You’re not asking people for their money, you’re just asking them to click on your links.

Where should I do research?

Google is still the best and easiest way to research.

Even without Google rankings, is it possible to get a good-looking page and start making sales right away?

Yes, you can start today!

How do I make the site?

Use a simple WordPress blog. WordPress makes it easy to create and edit your list of Black Friday products.

How long does it take to set up a WordPress site?

If you use, it will take about 10 minutes – maybe even less.

Can you use stock photos?


Do you have to be an affiliate for all the different vendors you’re promoting separately?

Yes, if you’re doing Amazon, you’d be an Amazon affiliate and the same goes for other vendors.

Is the slideshow template the only one you’d recommend for Black Friday?

No, there are lots of templates you could use. Slideshow works well because visitors need to click through it, but you can use others.

How do I learn WordPress?

I have plug-ins that are very easy to use that you can download. If you’d like to use the plug-ins, go to for the software that teaches you all of this in detail. That is our flagship site, and you will get the latest version.

Because you’re ordering towards the end of the year, you’ll also get the Simple Sites Big Profits Ten-Year Anniversary addition, which has lots of great upgrades and new stuff.

If you want me to find your Black Friday niche, go to and I can set all of this up for you.

Where do I start?

If you’re still not sure where to start, join and get mentored for less than $2.49 a day!

If You Do This Right, You Can Get Results!

Affiliate marketing is different from regular jobs because there’s no one telling you what to do or when to do it. With affiliate marketing, you have total control. Some people can motivate themselves to do the work, and some can’t.

The bottom line is, if you put in the work, you can get results. If you are determined to get views, you have the power to go get them. Best of luck on this Black Friday!

5 Ways to Keep People on Your Site Longer – Kill Your Bounce Rate

5 Ways to Keep People on Your Site Longer

You’ve attracted visitors to your site, but now what? Today, we’ll break down five ways to keep people on your site and engaged in what you have to offer.

  1. Match Your Headline and Your Ad Copy

In this video, the purpose is explicitly stated: “here’s the five things you need to do to keep people on your site longer.” That matches the title of the video and the thumbnail. Likewise, everything on your site needs to match.

On your site, ad copy is the equivalent of this video’s content. It is what visitors are there to read, listen to, or see.

If you’re offering something – like weight loss tips or a free eBook – make sure that heading is clear and easy to find at the top of the page. This is important because if your visitor doesn’t see what they clicked on your page for within three seconds, they’ll go elsewhere.

  1. Remind Your Visitors Why They Are There (2:50)

On a related note, you must make sure that any promise you make is delivered upon immediately.

The visitor’s eye should gravitate to what you want them to see. Any unrelated information about your experience, company, or qualifications is irrelevant at this point. People are more interested in what is in it for them.

W.I.I.F.T (What’s in it for them?)

In other words, why are they on your page? People come to your site with a purpose in mind, so you need to immediately tell them what you offer and what it will do for them.

Think about it as an “if/then” statement. For instance, if you learn these five tips, then people will stay on your site longer and you will make more money.

Tell visitors what the tip or giveaway you promised them in step one will do for them in real-world terms. Make sure that your explanation uses words that are descriptive and eye-catching, like in the examples below:

  • “Here are ten tips to lose weight so you can look the best at your next Christmas party, feel great, and be the envy of all your friends.”
  • “Here’s how to make money so you can quit your job, feel good and have extra money at the end of the month.”
  1. Use Curiosity to Keep People Engaged (5:28)

Using curiosity in your website copy is getting people interested. It is not the same as clickbait, which is typically a sensational headline that leads to spam or advertisements.

While clickbait may evoke curiosity, we want to use real world headlines and copy that get attention in a helpful and meaningful way.

Which of these statements sounds more interesting?

“Teach people what’s in it for them.”


“Check this out! I’m going to teach you my W.I.I.F.T method of getting inside your customer’s brain and getting money out.”

What about these?

“How to Lose 10 Pounds”


“Here’s how I lost 10 pounds using this method”

In both examples, the second option is more interesting and more likely to intrigue a visitor reading your site. As you can see, acronyms are also helpful.

Your site visitors are very likely to read bullet points. This is how they will decide if your information is helpful to them or not, so you want to make sure that your bullet points convince them to stay and read more.

Bullet Points in Your Content…

  • Are easier to read
  • Are gentle on the Eyes
  • Entice visitors to find what they want fast
  1. Break Up Your Content (8:00)

When faced with an unorganized block of text, we tend to shut down and avoid it. Don’t discourage visitors from reading your content. Instead, make it readable by breaking it up into bite-sized pieces.

A list or outline is much more easily read than a big chunk of text, and more effective in getting your point across. You also can utilize the bullet points from tip #3 to make your content gentle on the eyes.

Look at the Difference

Rather than using bad formatting, give your visitors simple paragraphs to read.

The reformat will help you understand several things:

  1. How to get your audiences eyes to go where you want them to
  2. How to add affiliate links and make them stand out
  3. How to make content easy to consume

The Dual-Readership Path

Your site will have two kinds of people: the kind who reads every word of the copy, and the kind who skims it. The second type is much more common, so it’s important to appeal to the site visitor who wants to skim through the copy to get information.

You can do this by using bold headlines. People will read the headlines because they stand out, and if they are interested in the sub-topics, they can go more in-depth and read the smaller text underneath. Site visitors are looking for specific answers to their questions, and headlines can help them find those answers quickly.

You can also use one or two other text colors to not only make things stand out, but also to make your points easier to locate on a web page.

A well-formatted page is more likely to be printed out, because you’ve already put the information your visitors want into an easy-to-read layout.

  1. Keep Your Visitors Wanting More (10:29)

Structure your content in a way that makes your visitor want more. Obviously, you want your content to help visitors, but you also want them to be interested in what else you have to offer.

You could get visitors interested with some content, for instance, three tips out of the five offered and then present a link or download where they can see they other two. If the visitor is interested enough in what you have to say, they won’t mind taking an extra step.

“But Wait, There’s More…”

Today’s video actually contains two more tips for keeping visitors on your site, but in the interest of making visitors want more, they are saved for the end. This is a perfect example of not only creating interest, but also breaking up content.

In the full video, you’ll find information on the importance of adding video and images to your content, and how to use Slide Voodoo to drive affiliate sales and keep people on your site longer.
