The Ultimate Guide to Affiliate Marketing in 2016

I’m giving birth to a monster.

The brand new volume of Premium Posts is completed, signed, sealed, delivered and ready for you to download.

It is a vast 381-page dossier of the latest affiliate marketing tips, tricks and strategies.

I’m willing to bank my balls on this:

Premium Posts Volume 2016 is once again sponsored by Adsimilis, one of the world’s leading CPA networks.

They have been sponsoring these releases for many years, for which I am very grateful.

Some of the first breaks I had in this industry were thanks to recommendations and exclusive offers provided by Adsims.

They are a fantastic network, and if you get the chance to work with them, you should take it.

Note: They are strict on approving new sign-ups. If you can prove that you’re not a total bumberclart, feel free to email me for a referral.

Thanks For Reading

As I alluded to recently, today’s post marks the end of this blog.

The volume I’m releasing was originally scheduled for last December.

Time constraints have forced delay after delay after delay.

It takes an immense investment of coffee beans to write the material that I like to write, to a standard that I am willing to publish, and to a standard that an audience as cynical as this one demands.

I’m proud of the end result, but the experience has confirmed that I’ve reached the end of writing about affiliate marketing.

My priorities have shifted.

There are only so many hours in the day.

Thank you to everybody who has bothered to read my shit over the last seven years.

It has been… a filthy pleasure.

Cheers,
Finch


OUT NOW: A Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing

Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing


In case you thought this blog had died and gone to Heaven Hell…

Nope!

I’ve been scribbling away in the darkness and I’m relieved/delighted to finally announce:

A Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing

The book has just dropped in my store.

First question, how is it different from the Premium Post series?

This is a cohesive start-to-finish, step-by-step guide to affiliate marketing.

It is a 419 page beast that tackles the complex issue of how I would teach somebody to make money from our industry.

There was an amazing response to Premium Posts Volume 2015, but the biggest criticism it faced was that people wanted more structure.

They wanted less nuggets, and more actionable advice.

I’ve had numerous requests for coaching, mentoring and private consulting along these lines, all of which I have refused.

I’m not interested in coaching.

What I can offer instead is this guide: a one-size-fits-all breakdown of the skill sets, philosophies, and challenges you will face if you wish to become a successful affiliate. And how I deal with them personally.

The guide is roughly split in two.

The first half gets newbies and rank beginners up to speed.

The second half ventures in to advanced marketing philosophies that should prove useful, and lucrative, for any affiliate.

I have included some of my own campaigns as examples.

You will see the logic behind their conception, the launch process, the optimisation process, reaching profit, and how I go about scaling.

Update: Unsolicited Feedback Since The Release:

No affiliate trust testimonials, right?

Here’s some unsolicited feedback I’ve collected since the launch of the guide.

16 Months Later… Thanks for Staying Patient!

It’s 16 months since I last released a volume of Premium Posts.

I had a new volume wrapped up and ready to launch in the summer.

After several re-reads, I wasn’t happy with the content.

It felt rushed. Repetitive.

So I shit-canned it.

I decided not to release any further volumes and I focused on my campaigns.

Then I started networking with affiliates in person.

In Barcelona, Dubai, London…

It took me by surprise just how many people had benefited, in some obscure way or another, from previous entries in the series.

That sparked me in to writing one post, which became the cornerstone of this brand new volume.

The rest of the content flooded out soon after, in gushes of pent-up energy and compressed brainfart.

What I’m releasing today is the culmination of a lot of ransacked coffee beans, and many, many late nights.

Thankfully, this time, after several more re-reads, I’m more than satisfied with the content.

It’s the most comprehensive dissection of affiliate marketing I’ve ever attempted.

It’s probably the most comprehensive dissection of affiliate marketing anybody has ever attempted.

I can’t wait for you to read it.
