Beginner Affiliate Marketing | 3 Rules to Hit Your First 6 Figures


– Today I’m gonna give you three rules to run your business by. Yes, obviously you have to do
a lot more than three things to create a successful business, but these three rules will
give you a massive leg up in creating success in your business. Hey, it’s LeahRae from toddandleahrae.com and I’m gonna give you the
three rules that have helped us create a seven-figure business online. Rule number one. Be the leader, be the teacher. Hopefully, if you’re watching this video it means you alreaedy understand that you always need to be learning new things. No matter how much success we’ve had, we always work on
continuing to learn more, to learn what’s happening now. The internet is always changing, so there’s always something new to learn. Now, when you turn around
and teach your own audience, what kind of posture are
you using when you talk? Really think about this. Now, this is assuming also that you understand the importance
of building an audience and creating great content
and value to serve them, which you do need to do if you want to be successful in affiliate marketing. But when you’re creating
content, videos, lives, blog posts, whatever, are
you positioning yourself as the leader, as the teacher
in front of the classroom? Or are you positioning yourself just as the best student in the front row? Think about it for a bit. Just because you’re making
a video or a blog post about what you’ve learned,
it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re the teacher. We’ve seen a lot of people doing videos and creating content, but
when you listen to exactly what and how they’re saying it, I can tell that they’re still speaking to
their audience as a student. Maybe a star student, but
a student nonetheless. When you’re talking to your own audience, you need to change roles and to become the teacher or the leader. Yes, you’ll probably
get leads as a student, but you won’t start
getting a bunch of sales or sign-ups until you become the teacher. And here’s the difference. The person who has the
posture and the mindset of a star student, the
student in the very front row of the classroom, they will
focus more on themselves than` their audience. Hey, Facebook Live! How you doing today? I just wanted to talk to you a little bit about a great training
that I went through. And today, I learned, I realized that, I’ve been struggling with. Today, I had to share,
I had to speak about. How many times did I say “I” in that? It’s all about you, as the student. Really very “me” or “I” focus. Constantly saying the word “me” or “I”. And there’s very little about what’s in it for them, for your actual audience. That’s the mindset and
posture of a student, which is fine if you’re
actually in the training. But once you turn around
and start teaching what you’ve learned to your audience, you need to become the
teacher or the leader. You need to be the one standing
in front of the classroom, not just the one sitting
in the front row of class. You need to become the
teacher, the leader. So the number one thing you need to do to make that happen,
the number one thing is to just stop talking about yourself. Your audience doesn’t really
care what you learned. They don’t care what you have to work on, or what struggles you have, or what you could be doing
better in your business, so stop talking about it. What they care about is
how what you’re going to say can help them,
can help their business. They care about what’s in it for them. So instead of saying something like, “Hey, today I learned this “really great prospecting technique “I learned from Lisa Torres, and “I’m gonna try it in my business.” That sounds like the student. Don’t say that. Instead, say something like, “Hey everybody, today I’m gonna teach “you a great prospecting technique “that helped my friend Lisa sponsor “over 300 people into her business.” It’s super effective and
it’s really gonna help you make some breakthroughs
in your business. Get it? Do you hear the difference? To be the teacher, to be the leader, you always need to be telling people what you are going to teach them, what they are going to learn, and how it’s going help them and their business or whatever industry or niche
that you’re working with. That’s really all that they care about. So they don’t care about
how much success you’ve had or haven’t had yet, so the less you talk about you, the more you talk about them, the more of the leader you’re gonna be. Rule number two, be a problem solver If you want to make big
bucks in this industry, then you’ve got to
become a problem solver. You need to solve your own problems, and then you need to start
solving other people’s problems. And this isn’t just
true in online business, but it’s really just true in any career that you might choose. People who innovate and solve problems, they’re the ones who get
ahead, who get promoted, and eventually make the big money. So start by just being able
to solve your own problems. And when you start
solving your own problems, that’s when you start to
become a professional, when you don’t have to ask someone else about how to do things, but you can figure it out, look it up, do whatever,
to figure it out yourself. We all have Google, so the chances are that it’s just a quick Google search or even a YouTube video away. Being able to solve your own problems is just the first step. And that’s because amateurs, they want everything figured out for them. They want to be told exactly
what to do and what to say. They are looking for that easy button that they can just push
and start making money. Guess what, guys. That easy button doesn’t exist. Professionals in this industry
are willing to go out, get out of their comfort
zone, do the work, test a bunch of ideas,
and fail a bunch of times, to learn the lessons that
only experience can teach, and solve their own problems. So what’s the next big step? Well, being able to then
solve other people’s problems. And that’s when you
start making big money. If you can solve a problem and then teach others how you solved that problem, that’s money in the bank right there. This is where the big money is. Todd is actually great at this. He’ll actually go out
looking for a problem just so he can try to
find a way to solve it. Because he knows that
once he figured it out, cha-ching, it’s money in the bank. So always look to be a
problem-solver in your business. Number three, always over-deliver. If you want to generate leads, then go ahead and make any
claims or promises that you want. You’ll get some leads. But if you want sales or sign-ups, if you want to create a loyal
fan base that will continue to purchase from you for years to come, then you better over-deliver
on whatever you’ve promised. And yes, that also includes just your free content and your giveaways. Now, a lot of people might
think, if you’re giving away all of your secrets and
strategies for free, that you’ll lose some of your value, that if you don’t hold something back, that people won’t want to opt in or join because they think that
you’ve already given them everything you had to offer. But here’s the thing, here’s why I’m not afraid to over-deliver. Because it doesn’t just
work this way in business. It works this way in any
type of job or career. In my career, I was
able to go from a nurse, joining into a healthcare IT
entry-level software position. From that, and just to a couple years, I became an IT consultant that was paid multiple six figures a year because I always over-delivered. And Todd did the very same thing. We both started to learn the concept of attraction marketing
as software analysts in healthcare IT. I was brand new on the
job, and having come from a nursing job, I had no IT training or experience, and I had a ton to learn. And the only way you could really learn what you needed to know
is through experience. So here I am, brand new software analyst and quickly learned that
there’s a lot of people in that line of work who
were knowledge hoarders. They would hoard information
and knowledge about the system, making sure that they were
the only ones who knew how to set something up or
how to fix something specific. And to them, that was job security, being the only ones who knew something. And those people were crazy frustrating because you always had to
go begging to them for help whenever that one thing went wrong, and instead of telling you,
teaching you, how to fix it, they would fix it themselves and refuse to tell you on what they did. They felt that if everyone
knew what they know, that they would lose
their value to the company and they’d be in danger
of losing their jobs. So that was their way of
creating job security. Then, there were the
other people on the office who would openly share everything
that they knew with you. They would gladly have you
learn everything that they knew because they knew it would
make the system better. It would make their
jobs better and easier, and it would just be a
better work environment. And those were the people
that everybody loved. They were the people
who got the promotions. Everyone would genuinely
feel happy for them. So that’s who we decided to
be, to model in the workplace. And we made a point to
take on the difficult tasks and become problem-solvers. So once I’d figure something out, then we’d document it, and then share it with the team without
holding anything back. And you know what happened? In less than a year, I
became the go-to gal. I became the expert that
everyone went to for help and I was groomed for upper management. And in less than two years,
I became such an expert that I decided to go into a role as an independent consultant, and really was the most
secure job I’d ever had because I always over-delivered. I had one client pay me
over half a million dollars over the course of three years, when I was only initially
brought on for a six-month job. I started there on a six month contract, but every time my contract
started coming to an end, the manager would ask me to
stay for another six months because I was always bringing
so much value to their team. And when one project came to an end, they would find another
project for me to work on, just to keep me around. I was on projects that
I had no experience in, and they kept paying me
multiple six-figure salary, plus $3,000 a week in
travel, because they knew that I’d find a way to really provide a valuable
contribution to that project. And they did that for three years because I always over-delivered. And here’s the rub, guys. You know where those knowledge
hoarders are right now? Same place they were. The same place they’ll always be. The same exact jobs. Because here’s the thing. The value you bring isn’t just
in the knowledge you have. Your value is in your ability
to solve people’s problems, and in being able to teach
and to mentor others, in being able to provide people with that shortcut to their
goals, because the difference between success and failure
isn’t just knowledge. It’s wisdom. You can gain knowledge
from a training program, but not wisdom. The only shortcut to wisdom is mentorship. So don’t be afraid to
over-deliver on the knowledge, because when you are
a leader and a teacher who can solve people’s problems, the big value becomes your mentorship. Follow these three rules, guys, and you can create a massive business, the business and the
lifestyle of your dreams. Again, this is LeahRae
