Affiliate products can be a great way to increase your cash flow.
But you need to make sure that you’re passing that value onto your list as well.
There are lots of ways to increase the exclusivity of a product and, oftentimes, all you have to do is ask!

Make Affiliate Sales With Your Email List
Whenever someone else’s products go live and you plan on promoting to your list for an affiliate commission, you need to look after your list like they were a member of your family.
You want to get them the very best deal possible.
Now, this assumes you have gone through the product and made sure it’s a quality item.
You never want to be striking deals on shoddy products.
Product owners will often go out of their way to cater to the needs of their affiliates.
They will give you advanced review copies, set up special sales letters for you, increase your commission and more.
But those are all things for you.
You want to do something for your people, too.
And all you have to do is figure something out and ask for it.
Don’t let shyness get in your way because this kind of stuff is done every day and no one will think less of you for doing it.

Let’s go over some of the things you can ask for.
First, if someone offers you an increased commission, you can ask them to discount the product a bit more instead.
In other words, pass that money along to your subscribers.
And be sure to tell them you did it, too!
So if a product is $10 and the typical commission is 50%, giving you $5, but the product owner offers you 100% commission, tell him to simply set up a sales letter for your list selling it to them for $5 instead, with 100% of that commission going to you.
Another thing you can do is ask for a special webinar just for your list.
So let’s say the product you’re promoting is one about how to create profitable Facebook ads.
Ask for a one hour webinar for your list where the product creator takes questions and presents some sort of information.
If the product owner has a multi-tiered product, you might ask for a special bundle price for all of the items.
So instead of a front end product, followed by several one time offers, he might put together a pack of all items for one larger discount.
If you want to deliver more value, ask for them to give your list another of their products for free or at an additional discount.
So if you’re promoting a FB ad product, and they have a LinkedIn product, ask for a double discount!
