IM Funnels Review - 3 Steps to Make +$500,000 With 6 IM Funnels

If you could miss out all the learning and mistake making parts and skip straight to the money making parts you would, right?

Me too.

Well here's the deal:

I can't fast forward you to super affiliate status just yet


I can show you what I've learned as an affiliate from making $90,680.75 in commission to date just on

Here's the IM Funnels Review...



And that does not include bonus prize money from winning affiliate contests (I estimate that's worth another $25K at least but I've never recorded it).

And it doesn't include commissions from the other affiliate networks I use like Amazon, Clickbank, W+, Commission Junction, ShareASale and more.

But anyway that's not the point...

Whilst I've made a lot of commissions on JVZOO I've also made a lot of mistakes too that have cost me further commissions.

So by reading this quick and easy affiliate lesson guide you can not only learn what worked and copy the successful parts.

But also learn ALL of the mistakes I've made and avoid those for yourself.

And don't worry if you're not promoting products on JVZOO.

As the simple affiliate lessons here apply to whatever affiliate network you use, especially if you promote digital products.

So here's those 31 affiliate lessons that will increase your affiliate profits...

1. This Is Where The BIG Money Is...

Your customers love products launches. 

This is where the BIG money is.

That's probably no surprise to you, right?

But here's why that is and how you can take advantage of it (in an ethical way) and make more money...

There's the excitement of a new product and system.

The hype.

The buzz.

Your customers hope that they are going to discover some brand, new, system, no one else knows about that will solve all their problems.

And they WILL if you promote the right ones.

There's also the scarcity and fear of missing out when the launch is over and the price rises or the product goes offline.

Launches flat out work and you'll make far more money in the few short days when a launch is on than you will from months of promoting an evergreen product not in launch phase.

And you will be amazed how little sales you need to make to hit the top 10 leader board and get some bonus cash (more on that below).

First here's a Pinnacle Review showing some nice earning product launches I've taken part in to hopefully inspire you...



So get involved with product launches as an affiliate, as not only does the buzz of the launch encourage more sales.

But on a mid level or smaller launch, even a handful of sales can land you in the top 10 on the affiliate contest.

And what does that mean?

It mean's bonus cash prizes!

I've came in the top 5 sellers when I first started as an affiliate in the online marketing niche with just 20 sales.

And I netted a few hundred dollars in bonus cash because of it.

You could too with surprisingly few sales.

Usually only the top 3 sellers are the ones sending the HUGE volumes so don't be put off by thinking everyone else will out perform you.

Oh and one thing:

Just make sure you are not 100% reliant on launches and especially not bonus income for all your income.

As if a launch doesn't go to plan and you don't make much or any're in trouble.

This has happened to me in the past.

More revealed on this later, but for now check out this sales maximizing tip...


2. Maximize Sales By Emailing Like This...

If you only mail once or twice you won't make nearly as many sales as if you promote daily through a product launch period.

I typically mail 3 times on launch day, twice a day throughout the launch, then 3 times again on the final day.

If you just send 1 or 2 emails it doesn't seem like you fully believe in the product.

I talked about using The Crush Campaign on a recent promo which involves heavy, daily mailing, which you can use as a guide.



To further back up this point...

There's an age old marketing adage called “The Rule of 7”. developed by the movie industry in the 1930 to increase movie sales.

They figured out the average person needed to see their movie trailer or ads 7 times before they went to see the film.

In marketing terms it means a prospect needs to be exposed to your advertising at least 7 times to compel them to take action.

Now not everyone needs 7 exposure to buy, some will on the first exposure.

But the point stands that not everyone will purchase the first time you recommend them a product.

The more you show them your marketing message the more chance they will buy.

Typically the bulk of all sales come from day 1 and the final day but the days in between add up to a substantial amount too so mail daily.

Next, we will quickly talk about how to pick "win win" products...


3. How To Pick A Product That Benefits Your Audience AND Makes You Money

Picking products isn't difficult when you know the problem your audience have and what the solution is.

This is the first step.

You don't go hunting for 'good affiliate products' or 'high converting products' you go figure out what your audiences problems are and how to solve them (you should already know this).

Then you find products which solve these problems.

I mean we'd all be tempted with a product with stats like in the screenshot below...



But make sure it IS something your audience actually needs and solves a problem.

Just because it's a high selling product and good doesn't mean your audience actually need it.

There is endless choice of good products that they do need in most profitable niches.

So simply match their need with a high converting and profitable product that you'll make money from.

It's a win win....

They get their problem solved and you make some commission for your time and work.

You may find the perfect product but it doesn't convert well...should you promote it anyway?

Tricky one but probably not.

Because if it doesn't convert (because of bad sales page or other reason) then few people will buy it and then fewer people get their problem solved which doesn't help either.

The more people getting their problem solved the better.

So find a balance of problem solving product that also converts or you're wasting everyone's time.

And now let's briefly talk about how not to be boring...


4. Don't Bore Your List To Death

If you're anything like me when I first started doing affiliate promos I'd pick one angle and run with it through the whole campaign.

Every email would basically say the same thing over and over again in a slightly different way or share the same results but with a different headline.

It's boring and ineffective.

No one wants to read the same thing time and time again.

You'll see in the screenshot below the different headline angles I've taken for one promo...



Take a different approach in every email.

Go with results, testimonials, stories, tell them what they'll gain by purchasing, tell them what they'll lose by not purchasing.

Mix it up.

And make sure you know the best days to mail which I'm about to reveal below...


5. Mail Hard On These Two Days...

I mentioned this already but you should mail hard on the first and last days.

It's where the bulk of your sales will come from.

Typically 20-25% of all sales I make will be on day 1.

And on occasions up to 50% have occurred on the final day (particularly with a mid range product of around $199-$500 but also with low end $7 where 20.98% of all sales on average come on the final day.

People either want to be the first to buy into a new product as they get caught up in the excitement.

Or they hold off until they are forced to make a decision through fear of missing out, price rises or products going offline.

Did you know you can use Fill In The Blank Email Templates...


6. Save Time With Fill In The Blank Templates On Every Launch

Until recently I had no process or direction for writing promo emails.

I just opened up Word and started typing whatever came into my head,

It was totally hit and miss what would come up. Emails with no structure that could either be a hit or a flop.

Then after buying The Commission Machine by Michael Chenney (this product is one of the best I've ever bought) I learned about email types I never used.

And it also occurred to me that you could actually template-ize your emails in many instances.

So I set about finding or creating email templates.

Some I found online from Digital Marketer...

Like their Gain, Logic, Fear series (these work like crazy!) below...



Get them here: Gain Logic Fear Templates

Others were templates using proven copywriting techniques like the 60 Seconds Sales Hook and PAS Formula.

Get the 60 Seconds Sales Hook here: 60 Second Sales Hook

And the PAS formula: Pas Formula

And others I made myself based on my most successful emails...

The “results” and “bonus” emails were born among others.

Here's a screenshot showing my simple "LIVE" template in action...



These are talked about more inside my product here: 101 Digital Affiliate Hacks

Download these templates and use them.

If you're already having some success with affiliate promos check your own emails to see if there's any common email types you send that can be made into templates.

Do you know these basic techniques...


7. Learn These Basic Techniques And You Will Sell More Instantly

I touched on this above but really even studying some really basic copywriting techniques will instantly make you sell more.

When I started implementing the 60 Seconds Sales Hook and PAS formulas into every email promo I did my sales increased massively.

The 60 Seconds Sales Hook emails. as shown below, now account for 9.66% of all sales on average on a promo.



And the PAS Formula 9.70% on average.

They work time and time again.

Do you know the Early Bird technique to beat other affiliates to the punch?

Let me quick explain...


8. Beat Everyone Else To The Punch With The 'Early Bird' Trick

Usually you can get your affiliate link in advance before a product launch has even started.

When someone clicks it it will either go to a blank page, a “coming soon” or an optin page rather than the sales page.

So they can't buy but they are already “cookied” with your affiliate ID.

That means you've got the jump on most other affiliates who won't email until launch time.

You'll see an example of it here in the screenshot...


An example of a pre-sell email headline I used recently


Early bird emails mean a much higher chance of you being credited for the sale when they do buy.

Pre-sale / early bird emails account for 14.54% of all my total sales on average on promos – can you ignore that?

Send out warm up emails, which build up the curiosity of the launch, for 2 to 3 days in advance and include your affiliate link that leads to the opt in or coming soon page.

Then when the launch finally kicks off you're already ahead of 99% of other affiliates as you've already got your cookie set.

I don't think anyone does this next point but it works SO well...


9. Survey Your Audience Then Use It To Your Advantage

The more you know about your audience, about their motivations, problems, and what makes them tick the more you can relate your promos to them.

Just think, would you respond more to a generic email that says nothing to you personally or one that really resonates with you and your situation?

And I don't just mean using “personalisation” like their names in email.

But knowing things like their frustrations, what they struggle with, why they want to succeed, how they feel.

Look at this question I ask them...


An example of one of my survey questions


Do you see how powerful that is?

For example if you're in the IM niche and you know that your audience...

·       Work 50 hours a week.

·       Hate their job and feel underpaid

·       And want to be a successful blogger

·       But can't make more than $100 online.

·       Don't know how to get traffic...


...then you can use this information in your emails and show them how these problems can be solved via what you are promoting.

You can also relate to them by showing how you have been in a similar situation in the past (assuming you have been).

The more you know about them the more effective your promos will be.

Here's a good list of things to find out...

·       Their demographics (gender, age, country, race, income)

·       Struggles in life in general and in relation to your niche

·       How they currently feel about their life

·       How long they have been struggling with their problem (within your niche, i.e. o make money online, to lose weight, to meet a girl etc)

·       WHY they want a solution and what it means to them

·       WHY they haven't achieved that solution yet

·       WHAT drives them to do what they do

·       Their biggest regrets in life so far

·       What they'd do once they had success

·       Where they currently are in their journey


Survey them using free Surveys on and ask your email list and social media followers.

There's a single email type I use that accounts for 18.78$ of my sales on average.

I've shared it with you below...


10. These Type Of Emails Account For 18.78% Of All My Sales, Use Them

There's nothing people like more than PROOF.

Show them what you are recommending / teaching them works.

Screenshots (great in the IM niche) like the one above...


A screenshot showing sales of my digital products in WSO+ which I've used as proof in the past


Before and after pictures (great weight loss / body building)

Videos of what you're teaching in action.

Testimonials from success stories.

I always show my own results or results from my tribe in my promo emails, they account for 18.78% of all sales on average.

And I would never have believed this worked until I tested it...


11. Even $1 Discounts Work Well So Get Them Where Possible

A while back an affiliate manager asked me if I wanted a discount code to give to my audience.

I said sure why not.

The discount was for a whopping $1!

The product only cost $7 so I didn't think this $1 discount was going to generate much sales.

I had a surprise in store.

I sent out an email offering the $1 discount....and in the end it resulted in 20 sales or 12.90% of all sales in that promotion.

If you can get a discount from the vendor then use it.

Here's another email type that brings in 15.61% of all my sales on average...


12. This Emails Makes Up 15.61% Of All Sales

A simple way of selling anything is by telling people what they have to gain by purchasing.

Seems pretty obvious now, doesn't it?

61% of all sales on average come from my simple and short email about what they have to gain.

I use DigitalMarketers template from the gain, logic, fear series.
