Schedule for Your Weekend Warrior Profit Plan

We've talked about everything that needs to be done in order for you to have success on this platform. You have to create value whether you are an affiliate or a vendor, carefully choose who you are working with on either side, and be productive during the hours you have to get everything ready for the upcoming week and month.

Your actual schedule is going to be unique, depending on different factors that are applicable to you. These include things like whether you want to be both a vendor and affiliate marketer, or only choose one of those options.

If you want to do both, you have the ability to work on your affiliate marketing one day and your vendor project the next. Or, since you will be likely doing fewer launches than you will promotions, you can primarily work on your affiliate business and spread your tasks as a vendor out over a longer period of time on the weekends.

You also have to determine how many hours each weekend you want to devote to it. It depends on how driven and how hungry you are for success. There are people who wake up at 5:00 in the morning and work until midnight and there are those who only want to put in a few hours total.

Another thing that affects your schedule is how many products you plan to promote and how many bonuses you want to develop for them. Obviously, a short teaser that piques the interest of your readers is going to require much less effort than creating a case study would.

If you don't have time to promote all of the good products that you have chosen, select as many as you feel you can get done on the weekends and focus on those. Don't feel like you have to do everything every single week.

It's better for you to have quality reviews that are effective and that convert than to spread yourself thin and barely pay any attention to dozens of reviews. Your own skills and knowledge about tools and strategies can also play a factor in how much you get done and what your schedule is like.

Some people can write 5 pages an hour while others might write one page per hour. Some people are very good with AI tools and then prompting for exactly what they need and others don't know much about it.

Some people have a good eye for quality PLR and are able to easily repurpose and tweak it into something that works as a promotional material or even a course they can release and some people don't know how to do this at all.

These are skills you can spend time on over the coming months so that your weekend Warrior Plus profit plan is more efficient and effective as time goes on. Regardless of what direction you go in, you want to make sure that you are being consistent and committed to what you choose.

Always maintain your ethics and don't feel pressured into promoting or partnering with anyone on the platform. You need to have an eye for quality and morals so that you are promoting the best of the best and gaining the respect of your target audience.

Be responsive to customers, affiliates and vendors. You want to become known for being someone who is engaged and who replies to queries, whether it's a customer in need of assistance that was sent to you from a respected affiliate or other affiliates and vendors who may want to help support your business.

You don't want to ignore people and end up missing out on opportunities just because you were too busy during the week, so pay attention and keep an eye on communications and prioritize those that matter most.

Be organized with your schedule. You need to have your tasks written down and mapped out so that you can easily go from one to the next and you are not wasting time during those weekend hours.

If this is the time you have allotted yourself to build a business, you don't want to be distracted by social media or streaming services like Netflix. Make sure you also save time to analyze your data from the platform.


Warrior Plus is going to show you how your product and offers are converting. This will tell you whether or not it's being well received in the marketplace. You can also check the stats of your affiliates to see how they are converting for your offers.

As an affiliate, you can use their stats to see whether or not your list and audience is responding well to the items you are promoting. If not, it may be time to reevaluate and see if you are presenting the best types of products or if you might be blinded by a monetary incentive and not necessarily meeting their needs.

Building a business on Warrior Plus is easier than you might think. It may look confusing from a technical standpoint, but there are plenty of answers in their knowledge bank and people willing to help if you simply post a question and ask.

Don't come at this from a panicked standpoint where you are desperate to earn money. This will not only cause you to make mistakes in your technical set up, but it can sabotage your strategy and result in decisions that don't serve you or your audience well.

You are going to see many different individuals on Warrior Plus selling and promoting a myriad of products. Some of them will seemingly make money day after day, making it look effortless while others are struggling to earn their first dollar.

By networking with the right people and watching what they are doing, you can be well on your way to igniting your own explosive income that grows week after week with every ounce of effort you put forth.

If you get stuck and run into an obstacle that you can't overcome, you can go to the Facebook group for clarity and ideas. People don't respond well to complainers and whiners, but they do respond well to go getters who are eager to learn.

When you become a success story on the Warrior Plus platform, it's beneficial for everyone who is helping you because that's a new vendor or affiliate that they can then work with, too.

Weekend Vendor Tasks for Product Launches

If you also decide to be a vendor on Warrior Plus, you will want to save some time during your weekend hours to work on a product launch. This requires a bunch of different working parts, so it will usually be spread out over the course of several weekends, although some people are able to create and launch a product on the same day.

It all depends on what your goals are and whether or not you hope to have affiliates onboard, because they will want some time to prepare their promotions as well as their own bonuses.

Spend some time coming up with an idea that you feel will be a good fit for your audience or, if you don't have a following yet, something you know you can create that will be well received by another marketer’s list of subscribers..

For example, if you decide you want to launch private label rights products, but you don't have a list yet to tell you what topics they need, look to other PLR sellers to see what is performing well in the marketplace so that you can do something on the same type of topic, but uniquely set yourself apart.

You can also use tools like artificial intelligence to help you with the concept by feeding it some information about what else is selling and who the demographic audience is. Then, you can either use that same tool or take a DIY approach to outlining and planning the product.

You have to decide if you will be creating it from scratch yourself or outsourcing the process to a tool or individual. Sometimes, there might be something highly technical like the development of a piece of software that requires input from someone else.

You also have to decide, if it is a course, whether you will be creating it in text or video format (or even a hybrid of the two). Usually, when you are developing your own launch, you're not just creating a front end product.

You can also have upsells and downsells on Warrior Plus. That way, whenever someone purchases the front end product, they are taken to the next page in the funnel and given the opportunity to purchase that additional item.

If they say yes, then they are taken to the next item in the funnel until the funnel is complete. If they say no, they might be taken to a downsell option if you have one, or to the next upsell page to see if they want that add on.

It's a good idea not to overwhelm buyers with too many pieces in a funnel. There are some people who feel they can't escape when they are hit with a sales page again and again and continually have to say no.

You can develop your product using your own skills and tools that are available to you, such as artificial intelligence. You can also outsource it to a freelance service provider like a ghostwriter.

There are also private label rights courses you can purchase and tweet so that they are your own, if allowed, and then sell it to a hungry audience without the private label rights license attached to it.

As a vendor, once you have completed the product and ensure that it has value to your target audience to help build your reputation, you need to work on your sales page. If you don't have any experience with copywriting, you might want to create some swipe files to help you navigate things like headlines, storyline, and call to action statements.

You can also use artificial intelligence for this purpose, by simply feeding the AI tool details about your product and having it create things like headlines, storyline, bullet point benefits, and more for you.

You want to spend a lot of time on your sales copy polishing it up so that it converts well for you. It also needs to look professional. You will find that some amateur marketers have sales pages that look like they are from 1990.

You need to make sure that your sales page is using a page builder or theme that reflects professionalism, and you can see what that looks like by simply opening up some of the product listings on the bestseller list so that you can compare and learn how those are supposed to look.

Next, you have to create your Warrior Plus listings. You want to start by creating a product for each item in your funnel. If you have three levels of your funnel, you will have three products.

Then, you will create a single offer. This page has different boxes where you can start with your front end product and then connect it to each upsell or downsell in your funnel. You will be able to see a visual listing that shows you where the customer will be sent after each stage of their engagement with your offer.

Warrior Plus requires approval in order for your listing to be publicly available in the marketplace, which includes the calendar as well as the bestseller list. Therefore, you have to make sure that the HTML code is correct for the buy buttons before you submit it for approval.

This happens in different timeframes. Your offer might get approved fairly quickly, or it may take several days in order for it to be analyzed. So you want to make sure you have your product created and all of the moving parts ready on the sales page well before the date of your launch.

If you want to have a contest where you pay affiliates cash prize money if they have the most sales, you can set that up on your offer. Make sure that you keep enough money back to pay your winners so that you don't have angry affiliates after the launch ends.

At this point, you’ll want to create a JV page. This is a page that tells your prospective affiliates everything they need to know about your launch, such as the date and time it goes live and ends, what's in the funnel, their commission rate, contest details, and whether or not you have swipe file emails they can copy and paste to promote your product for you.

Once you’re finished, go to Muncheye and create a listing so that other online entrepreneurs can find and promote your upcoming product launch. This also may take a few days, so make sure you have this process completed well ahead of time.

Then, it's time for you to begin recruiting and approving affiliates who will promote for you. We've already talked a little bit about the networking and recruitment process. It's important that when you are reaching out to these individuals, you don't make the conversation drag on too long.

Make sure you give them a brief spiel about your product launch, a link to your JV page with more details, and a review copy of the product so they can see what the quality is like.

Then, besides a brief reminder at the time of launch, leave them alone. You don't want to constantly badger them and ask them if they are going to promote. You will be viewed as a pest and they will likely block you.

When it comes to approving affiliates, when your listing goes public, you will begin receiving requests from many different types of affiliates. Some of them will have a good track record on Warrior Plus.

You will be able to see their conversion rate as well as their refund rate and the number of sales they have had to determine whether or not you want them to promote your product.

You never want to approve someone who has a high refund rate because that puts your product in jeopardy. Don't go by the score alone, but look at all of the different components that make the score complete.

Your affiliates will also have the chance to add a note to you. You can take this into consideration if it is personalized and specific, just as you were taught to do earlier in this guide.

You have to be very careful in approving affiliates and not get desperate to have sales because if you approve the wrong people, it can put your payment platforms in jeopardy, and put your stats on Warrior Plus in jeopardy as well.

The next thing you want to do to get ready for your launch that's coming up is go ahead and schedule your social media, blogs, and emails for the promotion. That way, everything is automated and ready to go on the day of your choosing without you having to have a hands on approach.

A Solid Warrior Plus Affiliate Monetization Plan

After you know what your upcoming week and month is going to entail, you'll be able to better take action on the affiliate and vendor tasks that you want to complete. There will be weeks when you look at everything that is releasing or that you want to release and realize that there's simply too much going on for you to do it all.

In that case, you can whittle it down to the best options for you to profit from. Usually, there will be products that are listed long after a launch that you can still promote as an affiliate.

Your customers may not be able to get the same launch discount pricing, but you can always go back to the vendor and request a coupon code that you can use with your audience if they will agree to that.

Your weekend tasks for affiliate monetization is to first decide on which products you've seen that are viable for your audience. Once you have that list, you want to compare each product to see which ones, if any, are worthy of a bonus.

If you are going to go to the effort of creating a bonus and an extensive promotion for the product, you want it to pay off for you as much as possible. A front end only product of $7.00 with a 50% commission is not going to cut it.

However, if you have a $7.00 front end product with multiple upsells, where the price and commissions increase with each level and there is a cash prize contest attached to it, that might make it worthy of the extra effort.

Sometimes, you can request review access so that you can get a sneak peek of the product ahead of time period this is especially helpful if you aren't familiar with the quality of the product of the person you are considering promoting.

That's an important distinction to make. You aren't just promoting a product, but the person attached to it. This person is going to have your subscriber on their list from this point on, and your subscriber is going to trust that you are sending them to someone that will treat them well.

That's why it's important for you to only promote top quality vendors and products. If they aren’t willing to give you free review access (because some freebie seekers ask for this with no intention of promoting), offer to buy it early.

You may not need to buy it, but it might help, depending on what type of review you plan to do. As time goes on and you have good stats as an affiliates, vendors will be approaching you and freely offering review access in hopes that you’ll promote.

If you plan on promoting, and making a bonus, be sure to tell the vendor that. The more information you can give them, the better. For example, saying, “I have a list of 5,000 subscribers and I want to create a bonus that complements your product,” might help get you approved with a review copy easily.

But don’t lie about it because once you’re found out, that won’t go over well with anyone in the community. Word of mouth can be powerful and you always want to be regarded as someone above the board.

Don’t sacrifice your reputation for a quick buck. Next, you have to think about what kind of reviews you want to create for the upcoming promotions. You might want to only do short teaser emails that pique their interest and make them want to click through to see the offer.

Sometimes, a more thorough review will be a better bet. Much of this depends on your relationship with your audience, their expectations and what is needed in order to help the product convert.

If your subscribers take your word for it, a short teaser might work fine. If they need more information, review it more thoroughly, but make sure you don’t give the product secrets away in your review.

There are also cases, especially if you’re creating a bonus, where a full case study would be a good strategy. There are two ways to d a case study. The first is letting them know you implemented the course and then sharing the results.

You’re not giving away the product information, just your experience with it. But you can also turn a case study into a bonus. It’s a very effective bonus, too because the buyer gets to go through the course along with you and follow along with what you did.

You get to be detailed because it’s a private case study and everyone participating will have purchased it, so you can talk freely about the strategies, etc. This is perfect for courses, but not as much with plugins, PLR, etc.

Because you’re building this profit plan on weekends, you may want to employ the use of as many time savers as possible. For example, if your goal is to queue up several emails, you might see if the vendor has any swipe file emails on the joint venture (JV) page.

Or, you can use PLR (private label rights) if the content is generic enough for you to be able to weave in mentions of the product. For example, you might find PLR about the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and then promote a new AI tool within the readymade content.

Speaking of AI tools, you can use those to help you shortcut your affiliate marketing tasks that you are doing on the weekend. For example, AI can help you write your product reviews for a blog as well as your emails and social media content.

There are some tools that you can use that will let you automate the publishing of these reviews. For example, you can schedule your blog post to go live right when the launch happens.

You can also queue up emails to spread out over the course of an entire week or month on your behalf so that those are ready and working for you while you do other things. You can even use certain tools to cross promote your reviews on various social media sites by telling it the exact date and time you want your content to appear.

Don’t forget scarcity reminders when you are promoting as a Warrior Plus affiliate. In the cases where you are promoting something in the hopes of winning a contest or earning extra commissions with a bonus, you'll want to send out your initial launch promo email, but then also remind them until the launch ends that they will miss out on it if they don't purchase within that timeframe.

As an affiliate marketer, you never want to agree to promote someone if their product is not a good fit for your audience. Not only does it hurt you because your readers now feel as if you don't know what their expectations are, but it hurts the vendor because the traffic you send them will lower their conversion rates and repel other affiliates who might be a better fit.

Sit Down and Plan Your Profit Strategy for the Month

Now that you understand the importance of networking, you want to sit down and start planning how you're going to monetize this platform. There's a couple of different ways you can do this, and we're going to look at both affiliate marketing and being a vendor on Warrior Plus.

During the planning stage, you want to first look at what is launching in the next week or month so that you can get prepared. Once you have some statistics under your belt, you'll be able to get quick approval whenever you request to promote something as an affiliate.

You'll also likely have faster approval as a vendor, as long as you are making sure to stay within the guidelines and rules of what they are looking for on your sales pages and listings.

As an affiliate, you want to start out by planning your upcoming launches according to what is currently known to you to be releasing in the coming week and month. During your networking process, you will have gotten to know certain vendors, and you want to get on their list as an affiliate and as a regular subscriber.

Sometimes, they will send out messages where they mention upcoming launches, and you want to be in the loop about what's coming down the pipe so that you can be prepared.

There are many times where something is being planned and worked on by a vendor, but it's not yet listed publicly anywhere until the last minute, which doesn't give you a lot of time to prepare your promos and bonuses if you are working on the weekends only.

In addition to being on their list, there are a few other places you can look. Start by looking on the platform itself. Warrior Plus has a launch calendar that you can look at. As long as the product is considered public by the vendor, you'll be able to see when that is going to go live.

You'll also be able to click on the link of the listing on the calendar and be taken to the affiliate sign up page. On that page, you can request approval, see the launch date and time, get an overview and map of the funnel, click on the sales page length, and click on the link to the JV affiliate page.

Under the affiliate tab on Warrior Plus, you can also click on the link that says Contests. Not only does this page show you hot contests that are happening at that moment, but it also shows you upcoming contests.

This may be something you want to check so that you can see if anything is viable for your audience that you may want to compete for where you can win a cash prize to boost your income.

You can also check in other places, such as on Facebook in various affiliate marketing groups where people are listing their upcoming launches. Sometimes, they will be open to all types of launches, and sometimes they will be specific to a certain type of launch such as private label rights (PLR).

Another place you can look is Muncheye. This is a listing site where people from different platforms, including Warrior Plus, JVZoo, and other platforms can let affiliates know in case they want to promote.

You can also go to separate categories within Muncheye, if you only want to promote certain things such as private label rights. Sometimes, vendors will go here to create listings and reserve a spot for their promotion on a certain day in the future, which gives you time to get prepared with our bonus or promo.

When you are evaluating things that are listed on these calendars, you want to take into consideration whether or not the product you are considering is right for your audience. If you don't have an audience yet, you need to figure out how you want to position yourself because they will be looking to you for guidance on what they should buy.

Do they need courses? Software or other tools? Readymade content or templates? Look at the topics being taught or delivered to see if that is in line with what your target audience is seeking.

Never select a product to promote just because it has a contest or an attractive commission rate. You always need to think of your customer first and then look at the other elements that can influence your decision on what you want to choose.

Make sure you're not just looking ahead to the next seven days. You want to look ahead farther than that, especially if you are a newbie because it may take you longer to get approval.

If you are networking, you'll often have friends that you make in the industry put you on auto approve for their listings. That means you won't have to wait for approval, but as soon as you hit the request button it will approve you automatically.

The next thing you have to do when planning your weekend Warrior Plus profit strategy is to think about whether or not you want to be a vendor and release products of your own.

How much you take on will depend on many different factors, like how fast you are at product development or how much knowledge you have to share. You can launch one product per month if you are releasing courses to teach people, every few months if you are working on a tech gadget such as a plug in or some sort of software, or even daily if you are releasing something like private label rights.

Keep in mind that it's not just about brainstorming and developing the product itself, you will have other tasks that you have to tend to in order to get your launch functional, which includes the technical setup, the creation of an upsell funnel, sales copywriting, and recruiting your affiliates.

Before You Do Anything Else – Start Networking

One step that you can do at anytime when you are on social media is networking with people who are either vendors or affiliates on the Warrior Plus platform. Some people may decide to only do that on the weekends, but others will go ahead and do a little networking while they are on Facebook during the week if they have a few extra minutes.

The importance of networking is to not only help you recruit affiliates and even customers as a vendor, but also allow you to get approval and perks as an affiliate if you are networking with vendors.

When networking with others, you're not only going to ensure that you get approved because they feel comfortable in knowing you, but you'll also have the potential to gain perks such as increased commissions, a spot on their download page, or even advanced access to their product before a launch all because they now consider you a friend.

Facebook is primarily the number one place marketers are engaged in discussions publicly, in groups and in private messages. But it's not the only place. There are other conversations that are done through emails, WhatsApp, and elsewhere.

Knowing who to network with is important period and sometimes, it will benefit you to simply lurk and read what people are saying. If you become friends with fellow consumers and colleagues in this industry, you will quickly learn who has a stellar reputation and who does not.

The last thing you want to do as an affiliate is begin promoting someone who may be able to launch products that receive a lot of hype, but who consumers are not happy with, because you don't want to have your commissions turn into refunds.

Likewise, as a vendor, you really don't want to be recruiting affiliates to promote from you if they don't have a good reputation because their initial commissions might turn into chargebacks and refunds or complaints because they are engaging in spammy behavior.

So how do you connect with people and how often should you be reaching out? This depends on how you plan to go about communicating with them. If you are simply watching and commenting on post that they put on their profile, you obviously don't want to look like a stalker by going back five years and liking every one of their posts.

But if they post something new, it's okay for you to like it and comment on it if it is relevant and you have something to say. You want them to get used to seeing your name and knowing that you are not someone hiding behind the scenes who is ready to try to take advantage of consumers.

If you are interacting with someone via private messages, you have to be a little more discreet and careful about how often you are intruding into their space. If you start spamming them repeatedly throughout the day, they will simply block you.

You have to develop that friendship initially in order for them to want to communicate with you that often. Don't make everything so strict and business oriented. Friendships with your Internet marketing colleagues are important.

Try not to engage in any drama that is circulating in the industry or marketplace. There will always be feuds among marketers, whether they are vendors or affiliates. If you see this happening in groups or behind the scenes, simply stay out of it and absorb the information so that you can make a determination about if and how it should affect your business.

If you are a vendor and you have identified some people who look like good affiliate prospects, start by engaging with their public content, and then you might reach out with an initial introduction that simply tells them you are developing a product and you think it might be a good fit for their audience.

Start the discussion, but don't browbeat them with repeated messages asking if they're going to be onboard for your launch. Likewise, if you are an affiliate, you can reach out to people and let them know what kind of promotions you want to do, and that you'd really love to add their product to your lineup.

 You want to become familiar to them first, before you start reaching out directly. If they are not on Facebook, then you can reach out through email, but again, because you are going directly into their inbox, you want to be careful about how often you are showing up with a request

Weekend Warrior Plus Profit Plan

There are many members of Warrior Plus who are excited about setting up a business as a vendor, affiliate – or both. But there’s often some confusion about how to get started, how to begin generating profits and ultimately, how to achieve the level of success you see others enjoying.

Many of the people who are looking for this career path are currently working elsewhere and want to use their free time to build a business that can eventually sustain their financial needs.

So what we’re going to do here is look at a plan that lets you apply your weekend hours to develop a business you can launch using Warrior Plus as both a vendor and affiliate, where you’re using as many free tools, connections, readymade products or automated systems as possible to help give you the quick start boost that you need.

Week after week, you should see your profits begin growing, but you must keep in mind that this is a strategy that requires a mix of consistency, careful evaluation, ethics, and self-driven motivation to bring it to fruition.

If you’re a shiny new object chaser who can’t settle down and commit to a true entrepreneurial endeavor, then this isn’t the right path for you. It’s for those who are serious about it. Let’s get started!

Preliminary Warrior Plus Details You Should Know

Towards the end of this guide, we’re going to talk about the actual schedule option you have as a weekend Warrior Plus marketer. But for now, let’s dive into what you need to know about the platform and how it operates.

This is a third party platform, which means they allow people to list their products (and allow affiliates to promote things there) in return for a fee that is taken out of each sale. It’s a marketplace.

They’re not personally responsible for the products themselves, for the affiliates, etc. But they do monitor behavior and can ban people if they go against the guidelines and rules of the platform.

You, as a vendor, can create listings for your products and affiliates can find them, grab a link and promote. Warrior Plus has a wallet that affiliate commissions can go into, which means their system will pay the affiliates and you don’t have to do anything directly.

As an affiliate, you can sign up and find products to promote. Warrior Plus has no say over whether or not vendors will approve you. That’s up to each vendor, but we’re going to address that later and improve your odds.

Using Warrior Plus eliminates the need for you to have an affiliate system on your site. Many vendors appreciate it because it has a built in affiliate base, where people can find your listings and request to promote.

There are marketplace bestsellers, and a Deal of the Day product chosen by Warrior Plus. Just because something is on either one of those does not mean it’s a good product!

Sales determine the bestsellers, and while some of the Deal of the Day products are good, some aren’t – and you need to take precautions and responsibility to vet them yourself.

Approval may take longer or be more difficult when you’re new and without a track record. Some vendors have it set to a minimum rating, such as a rating of 60 in order to even be able to request approval.

But most don’t have that setting, and it will allow you to request and add a note. What you never want to do is what some unethical vendors teach: saying, “I am a student of so-and-so.”

You don’t know what that vendor thinks of the mentor you’re naming. In many cases, they might have a very negative view of them and will instantly deny you. Plus, it looks amateurish.

Warrior plus has implemented a process where you have to fill out information that will allow them to verify your identity as an affiliate. It's done through a third party verification service called ComplyCube.

It costs $5 to register, but it helps protect everyone in the network from people who engage in nefarious behavior. You can still go ahead and apply to promote products while your application is pending.

Be sure to do this early on so that you can get verified and begin promoting products without a delay. When your commissions are building up in your Warrior Plus wallet, you can extract the payment once it is out of the pending phase and send it straight to your bank account or to PayPal or Stripe.

You can also leave some of your commissions in your wallet if you want to purchase products that are being sold on Warrior Plus. You do not pay an additional fee to Warrior Plus to extract the money.

In order to remove the money from your wallet, it requires you to have at least $15.00 to withdraw. You also have to have at least five different unique buyers before it becomes eligible for the first time.

After that, they don't have to be unique. However, if someone purchases using their own Warrior Plus wallet, that doesn't count towards your five required individual sales. If you are brand new to affiliate marketing and don't yet have an audience, it may take a little bit of time for you to accumulate 5 unique buyers, but if you are consistent and committed to the process it should happen fairly quickly.

There is a Warrior Plus group on Facebook, designed to help the community be able to interact with one another and ask questions. However, they also have a support chat built into their platform where you can contact them if you have any problems.

The Case Against Multiple Streams of Income

One of the most common pieces of advice you’ll hear as an online entrepreneur is that you should develop multiple streams of income. It seems wise, especially when you consider the danger of putting all of your eggs in one basket.

But that generalization gets overblown in the worst way, causing marketers to spread themselves so thin, they never get to experience true success. In fact, for many people, this is polar opposite of the advice they should be taking.

Multiple streams of income is a concept that involves having more than one business model or niche. Sometimes, people will do so many things at once – selling info products, offering freelance services, trying out affiliate marketing, dropshipping, selling printables and more.

Instead of embracing a multiple business model approach, let’s consider a strategy that has you fully focused on excelling at one thing. This is what most truly successful, top notch entrepreneurs do when you study their business carefully.

Usually, the ones touting a multi stream approach are doing it because newbies feel more secure having backup plans and they aren’t fully sure of which direction they should commit to.

Having Multiple Streams of Income Dilutes Your Productivity

One of the most important things you can possess as an online entrepreneur is productivity. Whether you have one business or multiple branches, it's important to keep up with the output your consumers demand, as well as what will keep you competitive in the marketplace.

When you are trying to manage more than one business, you're spreading your own energy, focus, and resources thin. This is bound to have an impact on how effective you are at being productive throughout your day.

Each business model is going to have its own list of tasks and a timeline they must be met within if you want it to be a success. If you are not able to keep up with that level of productivity across all branches, you will see each one of your businesses fail, without ever delivering any income stream whatsoever.

You have to think about more than just output of content. You're also trading your energy and your mental capacity whenever you switch gears and have to work on a different project in a completely separate manner from what you were just working on.

This is known as being a Jack of all trades and a master of none. You want to excel at one thing rather than have a little bit of experience and effort spread across a wide terrain.

It's better for you to have excellent results with one business than it is to be mediocre or even a failure in many different businesses. Each one is going to require you to hone your skills in a way that allows you to beat your competitors when it comes to the attention and investment by consumers.

You should have a focus on quality, not just quantity of deliverables when it comes to your target audience and what they are looking for. If you are trying to keep up with three to five businesses, you're going to find it difficult to even be productive, much less ensure the quality of what you are doing.

It’s More Complex Managing More Than One Business Model

When you are trying to learn the ropes of being an online entrepreneur and achieve your success goals, it can be enough of a struggle as it is to gain an understanding and apply principles in a way that allows you to generate income.

If you are trying to manage more than one business, you are burdening yourself with an extremely complex and overwhelming task. You have to stay informed about everything going on within each business model.

For example, if you are an affiliate marketer on Amazon, you have to not only manage their rules and guidelines that are continuously changing, but what Google and other search engines expect from product reviews they ranked highly.

If you switch gears to work on an info product, you have to look at the rules of the platform, networking etiquette, affiliate recruitment, and other issues that are difficult for even the most organized entrepreneur to manage.

The list goes on and on, with the more business models you add on to your strategy. Not only does the knowledge you have to absorb increase, but your time management becomes more difficult as each project begins to demand your attention in order to profit.

It’s Hard to Gain Traction for Your Brand with More Than One Branch

It’s also more difficult if consumers are viewing you as spread too thin. If your brand is trying to be a catch-all, it doesn’t instill confidence in your buyers and subscribers that you have the expert knowledge they need.

Your brand needs to be focused to reflect a top tier level of service and production. If someone looks up your name, they shouldn’t see five different businesses. To them, it won’t look impressive – it looks desperate, unorganized and concerning.

Imagine someone Googles your name and sees that you sell anti aging info products, promote dog care items on Amazon, sell bath bombs on Etsy, and offer virtual assistant services as a freelancer.

You have to be able to carve out an identity for your business that is clear and consistent. Ideally, this will be centered around your skills, talents and interests that reflect a passion for what you do.

Expenses Rise with Each Business You Tack On

If you’re a new marketer, or someone financially struggling, you’re going to find your costs and overhead rising with every business you add. Instead of just a domain and hosting for an affiliate blog, you might decide to add on several more businesses.

As an info product vendor in another niche, now you’re looking at paying for yet another domain, maybe a ghostwriter or editor, graphic designer or tools, and more. If you decide to add on a membership program, you now need a platform like AMember, which is costly and presents you with a big learning curve.

If you’re selling something tangible on Etsy or Shopify, you’re going to have to add the materials and shipping costs to that and don’t forget about fees you’ll pay across multiple platforms or paid ads you have to run to generate traffic, too.

To learn all of these new business models, you have to pay for courses, tools, and maybe even coaching to get you to a place where you can become profitable with your new add-on venture.

Streamline Everything Into One Business Model While Protecting Your Income

You don’t have to put your income at risk by focusing on a single business and niche. You can protect it in different ways. First and foremost, abide by rules and regulations as well as proper etiquette related to your business model.

Don’t engage in any risky behavior, like spamming or breaking rules of the platforms you’re using in order to turn a quick buck. You can also protect your income by utilizing multiple platforms, rather than just one.

For example, if you sell info products you can put your courses on ClickBank, Udemy, JVZoo and Warrior Plus as well as sell direct to customers on a platform like Systeme, Thrivecart, etc.

Multiple streams of income may sound tempting, but it can sometimes serve as a detriment to your overall success. If you’re determined to branch out, make sure that you’re making one business successful and profitable before you begin adding anything on one at a time, allowing you to properly manage your expansion.

30 Day Affiliate Marketing Blueprint

30 Day Affiliate Marketing Blueprint

There are many tasks associated with being a successful affiliate marketer. From reviewing products to researching solutions for your audience and knowing how to get eyes on your recommendations, it’s an ongoing process that takes both time and dedication to your niche audience.

Many online entrepreneurs try to rush the process, slapping up several reviews for days and then quitting because they didn’t see results. If you want to truly cultivate a lucrative career as an affiliate marketer, you’ll want to follow this blueprint that has you immersing yourself in focused tasks for 30 days so that you build a profitable foundation for your business.

Day 1: Pick a Niche Poised for Growth

It’s a given that when you choose a niche, you’re going to want to have a real interest in it. To be chained to a business where you’re creating content day in, day out about a topic without having a passion for it would be grueling.

But for profitability purposes, you need to know that others share the same interest as you, which means the niche is growing over time in terms of market sales. You want the expansion to be a steady upswing, and you can easily search for industry stats to make sure that’s what’s happening.

If the niche is steady, or even falling, rather than growing, it could be cause for concern. When a niche is blowing up, it needs to be a long-term event, and not just a short period of time when something is trending in the news about it.....

Amazon’s Best Black Friday Deals

Amazon’s Best Black Friday Deals

Black Friday isn’t going to kick off the day after Thanksgiving in 2020. That’s because plans are already in the works to make this event begin a lot earlier. This is due to helping keep the number of people crowding into stores down.

Because of this, expect to see sales begin as soon as October arrives. Shoppers will be able to find the same items and more online for this sale event just as much as they could shopping in the store.

Some of the best Black Friday deals can be found on Amazon. You’ll be able to start shopping the minute the event kicks off and you’ll be able to do it from the comfort and safety of your own home.

For those who happen to be Amazon Prime members, you’ll get your items quicker, too. There are specific categories as well as items that you can expect to see for sale. Laptops are going to kick off one category.

What you want to look for are ones such as ASUS and Microsoft brands. These sales will range from $50 off to hundreds in savings. It’s speculated that Dell laptops will be on sale, including their gaming version.

Technology that can help organize your life or get you into shape will also be on sale. Look for smartwatches and Fitbit items at discount prices. You can save enough on certain exercise related items that you’ll be able to put it toward workout equipment or clothing.

Some of the best deals may also be wireless headphones, including gaming brands. Cameras and television equipment such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick will also make an appearance during Black Friday events.

Save money on items like Amazon Echo as well. If you’re looking for Wi-Fi enabled home security systems, you’ll be able to score savings on these, too. Keep an eye out for sales on the Ring doorbell camera, because it will surely make an appearance at a discount.

As always, television deals will top the list for what many shoppers are seeking. You want to be sure that you get a great brand, so do your homework on how these TVs perform before you buy.

A sale on a lesser quality product will cost you more in the long run when it doesn’t last as long or meet your expectations. One brand to pay attention to during this sale is Samsung.

Audio sales will show up for products like Apple AirPods or Powerbeats. You’ll also want to check out home speakers and channel sound bars for sales. E-readers will be on sale during Black Friday, and you’ll want to snap up the deals offered on Amazon’s top rated Kindle.

Popular video games will show up with lower prices and you’ll want to grab some of these for the gaming enthusiast on your list. Plus, these make great stocking stuffers.
Kitchen appliances like coffeemakers (including Keurigs) and Instapots are also usually on sale on Amazon during Black Friday and make thoughtful gifts for someone on your list. 

Elements of a Successful Niche Site

Elements of a Successful Niche Site

Have you ever wondered why some people start a site and end up becoming six or seven figure marketers, while others launch one and actually lose money on their investment?

It might only be a small sum for a domain and hosting, but it’s really the promise of success that’s lacking from the equation. What makes one person a niche success story and another a failure?

Every scenario is different, but there are some core elements that are necessary if you want your site to turn into a fully-fledged business that thrives in your chosen niche market.

Developing an Interactive Blog

While many marketers launch static sites, having a blog sets you apart – because it makes you accessible and more cutting edge than those whose work becomes outdated.

WordPress is the blog of choice, and it’s installed directly on your domain. You don’t want to host your blog on a free blog site, because then you’re at the mercy of the company who owns it, and many marketers have woken up to find all of their hard work vanished because they didn’t make the wise investment of a domain and hosting for full ownership.

What do we mean when we talk about an interactive blog? Well, any blogger can paste content in as a blog post and take a hands off approach. But those bloggers who include a level of engagement with their audience do far better.

Turn the comments on and allow your readers to express their thoughts about what you share and ask questions, which you then respond to pro-actively. Be sure to filter spam from the blog so that true conversations don’t get lost amid the nonsense.

Another aspect of an interactive blog is providing multi media for your followers. Not everyone is a text reader. Especially in today’s world, video and even audio are becoming more popular avenues for information consumption, so vary it up from time to time.

Even if you’re initially too intimidated to be on camera, you can still use tools like Camtasia and PowerPoint (both very easy for beginners) and make screen capture videos where your audience at least gets to hear your voice and watch the presentation unfold on video rather than having to read it.

Presenting a Compelling Opt in Offer

If you have a site that you want to make profitable, you don’t want to rely on the visitor to come back on their own. You want to be able to invite them back and point them to posts and offers that you can monetize.

That means you’ll need to build a list of subscribers. If your content on the blog is compelling, then people will be interested in what you have to say, so they’ll eagerly sign up for future notifications.

And that’s as far as many bloggers take it. They provide a simple sign up form and offer to notify readers of future posts. That’s certainly better than nothing, but is it the best you can do when you want your blog to be a success?


A better – and more compelling – opt in offer is one that gifts the visitors something in return for trusting you enough with their name and email address. Here’s a many failing marketers make…

They put together a simple compilation of ordinary material and paste it up there, hoping to get subscribers. That’s not good enough. You want to make the sign up process irresistible.

You want them to want that free gift so bad, that their desire to read it (or watch it) overpowers any hesitation they may have for signing up for a list. After all, most consumers are fiercely protective of their email due to the number of spammers on the Internet.

You want to start by thinking of something that’s not readily available everywhere. Your opt in offer should be something so valuable, people would pay good money for it. Don’t worry about losing money sharing this type of information – you’ll make it back easily by having their contact information where you can send all future offers.

Remember that people often respond favorably to pain points and negativity. “7 Critical Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Diet” will probably get more sign ups than “Weight Loss Tips.”

People want to know what they’re doing wrong. If it was an easy process, they wouldn’t need you. Also, numbers work well. An offer like, “37 Unique Low Carb Diet Recipes” will work better than “Low Carb Diet Recipes.”

Make sure you invest in a professional e-cover for your opt in offer if it’s a guide or book. People like to see what they’ll be gifted. Don’t try to take the do it yourself route – an e-cover doesn’t cost much from a professional, and it will make a big difference to the reader.

Injecting Rapport-Building Personality Into Your Content

Personality usage can be intimidating or confusing to many people. They feel like, “Who wants to hear about my life?” Or, they say, “How do I share anything personal when I’m reviewing a protein shaker cup?”

There’s a very simple formula for this, and it takes the burden off of you as the blogger. First, always start with an introduction that lets the reader know why you felt sharing the information was important.

For example, “I see many people asking which protein shaker cup to buy. My personal preferences aren’t about what it looks like, but other things – like does it mix well, is it leak proof, and is it going to keep the milk cold – because I’ve had clumpy shakes, gotten to the gym and had my gym bag ruined with protein shake, and downed a lukewarm shake because I was desperate. It’s not fun.”

That kind of personality, sharing your experiences and preferences, is the type of thing that builds a rapport with your audience. It’s okay to weed out the ones who do care about the design or looks.

You want to have people nodding in agreement with you because when you describe your experience of drinking a clumpy, warm shake – they’ve been there, too. So they know that you know what they hope to avoid with your review.

Somewhere in the middle, interrupt the review with a story. In the case of the protein shaker cup, maybe you want to discuss the time you forgot about your shaker cup in the car over a long, hot 4-day weekend – and you never want to get a cup that won’t shake that sour milk smell again.

At the end of your review, do something like you did in the intro. Only ask them if they’ve ever had the same thing happen. You might say, “As a single dad who only has 1 hour to devote to fitness each day, I can’t afford to struggle with a shaker cup – especially when I’m knee deep in sippy cups for my toddler – so I need the ones that are durable and effective. What’s your biggest struggle with previous shaker cups?”

It’s perfectly okay to have an opinion and to share it. If you’re in a niche where there are strong opinions, go ahead and form a strong bond with those who agree and be willing to reject the opinions of those who don’t.

You don’t just want to have a personality with your blog, either. This should be an element that you use on your social networking accounts and email autoresponders. Become a friend to your subscribers and treat them as such – not like a money cow you can milk on a whim.

Showing Up to Serve on a Schedule

People always ask about how often they need to do things like post a blog or email or even create a product. Schedule is important, but it’s not something you should struggle with a ton.

Basically, your goal is to build a bond with your people. You’re an online personality. Can you truly bond with someone if you capture their name and email address and don’t show up until 3 months later to email them?


They will have completely forgotten who you are, where you’re from, and why you’re intruding on their email account. They’ll likely unsubscribe and might even mark you as spam.

Your goal in an online business is to serve others – to lessen their pain points. You want to see what they need help with and help them find a solution (whether it’s one you create or one you simply recommend).

There is no magical numerical formula for online success. It’s basically as often as needed. If you have something to share daily, go for it! You might not want to email your list more than once a day, because that can be intrusive.

Give people an option of signing up to a digest such as a weekly digest. This allows them to stay on your list, but limit the amount of emails they get. Some people feel overwhelmed hearing from you daily.

Blogging should be done daily, but probably no less than weekly. If you can blog 3 times a week, that’s plenty. Search bots like Googlebots are routinely analyzing your site to see if there’s any new content.

They like to provide reliable, fresh content to those who search on their search engine. So if your blog posts good information daily, you’ll likely end up higher in the search results than someone who simply shows up once a month to post.

It’s important that you not push the limits and try to create content when there’s really nothing valuable to say. You don’t want to dilute the importance of your site by posting mediocre content.

Learn to be strategic with your research methods and slants and that way, you’ll have an easier time showing up regularly to serve your audience with content they’ll find helpful.

Having Paid Offers Available for Sale

When you’re just starting out, you might be intimidated by the idea of creating a paid offer. Having products to sell is a process that you’ll need to learn if you want to grow your profits into something formidable.

Why would you want to have your own products, when you can simply promote other peoples’ products? It’s simple: money. You’re going to make more retaining 100% of your sale than you would recommending other peoples’ products for 50%.

You can start with something small and build up to a higher ticket item if you want. For example, you might sell a $7 course on how to stick to your diet. Later, you might develop a $37 Monthly Low Carb Diet Plan.

Eventually, you might create a $97 coaching plan where you interact one on one with your subscriber and help them learn how to fix any issues that are holding them back from their success.

When you have your own products for sale, using a platform like JVZoo, for example, you can then have affiliates signing up to promote you. This casts a much wider net for you in terms of customers and profits.

It also helps build your list. When an affiliate sends someone to your offer, and they buy, that customer is then a subscriber (if they opt in) on your list, so you’re able to sell to them in the future.

Competitors have no reason to send people to your blog if you’re not offering something for them to earn a commission on. Therefore, you can’t leverage their list. But creating your own product and allowing affiliates to promote it gives you this profit perk – and it’s a big one!

There are many marketers who worry that things have already been done before. That’s true – they have. And yet, consumers like buying from multiple producers. They don’t just learn from one person, but from a dozen.

You’ll have your own slants and style when it comes to teaching people, and you’ll have people who resonate with you more than they your competitors. So you don’t want to deprive them from your voice and expertise just because you’re nervous about what’s already on the market.

Make sure you always create original work and never plagiarize anyone else’s content. Start from scratch and create something that overdelivers to your customer. Professional graphics will help with conversions, so never skimp on those.

The elements of a successful niche site are common across various topics. Whether your niche is survival, diet, anti aging, parenting or something else, the tips above should give you an advantage over most of the people trying to achieve the same goals.
