The Future of Premium Posts
As I wrote several weeks ago, sales on my affiliate marketing Premium Posts have been going strong. That’s still the case. I’m glad they’ve exceeded the template of one hit wonder! The latest release, covering how to make money from dating offers, seems to have been received very well.
So, I’m excited to begin work on Volume 4. The theme is simply going to be ‘Outside The Box‘. I want to steer affiliates away from the idea that they can only be successful on Facebook and Plentyoffish. In reality, it’s much easier to be successful away from these traffic sources. Volume 4 will be about not only diversifying your traffic sources, but designing landing pages and ad creatives that break the mould.
I’ve spent a lot of time researching concepts – and profiting from them, which is always a moral relief! – so I’m excited to condense what I’ve found in to one diatribe of expletives, balls and occasional marketing advice.
I’m also going to be rolling out an affiliate program. It’s been a pleasant surprise that so many bloggers have been happy to write reviews for a free copy and no monetary gain. Which is why I’m all the more excited to throw in a commission and broaden my reach through word of mouth exposure.
If you run an Internet Marketing blog and haven’t read Premium Posts, I would be more than happy to send a copy in exchange for an honest review. Hit me up if that sounds interesting!
I’ve been thinking a lot about the future of the Premium Posts. Where can I take them? How many volumes can I justify before the value begins to diminish? Well, I’m sure readers will be quick to tell me when the quality hits the skids, but I think I’d like to release 7 volumes and then focus my efforts on product creation elsewhere.
CPA affiliate marketing is a small pond. There is a very apparent shoreline where the sales numbers are fixed, no matter if I’m publishing a masterpiece or a stinking shipwreck. I’d like to move in to more scaleable markets, not just to make more money, but to deliver my writing to people that might be affected by it in a different way. There must be more to this world than motherfucking arbitrage and CPVLab columns. Please tell me if I’m wrong.
The whole process of selling my writing has really enforced that I see my future away from affiliate marketing. I’m already envisioning in my mind the final product on FinchSells.com to be a roadmap of why I got started in affiliate marketing, and why I decided to leave it.
That product is still many months away. I have a lot of work to do before I can shift the majority of my income away from the arbitrage column. But it will be a huge burden off my shoulder when that day comes.

I write this feeling a little melancholy ( and a little tipsy too at 00.15 on a Sunday morning) nonetheless as an avid reader of your blog which in part was responsible for getting me into the CPA side of AM, plus being a consumer of each one of your premium posts thus far, I am besides myself at the prospect of further volumes to look forward to, and the next one sounds awesome!
However at the same time your last couple of posts have been an ever so slightly depressing read as the mood music is definitely playing the sad song of one yearning to leave the daily rigours of cpa marketing behind you, balls and all… which is a sad prospect.
Intrigued by the affiliate program though, but sure there must be a literary work coming on aswell, maybe your version of the 4 hour working week perhaps…?
I’ve come across some very unique and interesting posts on this blog. Honestly, I still have to find out about premium posts and of course also find out about your products. It’ll be interesting to see you launching your new product. Good luck!
I’m looking forward to the next premium posts. This is some of the most valuable stuff I’ve purchased for making coin and a laugh.
@Party Girl – I feel like there’s some kind of literary monster lurking under the surface. I just need to pluck up the inspiration to get to it! Flattered to hear the blog inspired you to take up CPA though. That means I get 50% royalties if you make millions from it, right?
@Bears – I’m sure I’ll be making lots of noise on here when I get round to releasing other products. I expect this place to become my venting outlet!
@Farlon – Cheers squire. I hope you enjoy the next one.
I just read all three volumes in one continuous go – haven’t read anything funnier or better, well not since the first time I found Kelly Felix… no actually I’m talking shite, you’re way better slash funnier than Kelly and I’m now considering becoming an e-stalker.
On the dating front I’ve been doing it way wrong and now mine eyes have been opened. I want to whore LPs and stop building whole dating sites.
Just hurry up, write a whole blueprint guide and give me a preview copy. Scrub that – the only copy.
