How to Make Money in Affiliate Marketing WITHOUT Scamming


– Okay, in this video I’m
again with John Crestani, master performance marketer
and master affiliate marketer. I wanna talk about the fact
that affiliate marketing tends to get a bad rap sometimes and what people can do to get around it. (relaxing music) Why in the first place, why do you think affiliate marketing gets a bad rap in the first place? – I think it’s gets a bad rap because some affiliates push it too far. – [Eric] What are some examples of that? – Examples of people putting
up ads where you click on them and it freezes your
computer unless you call a certain phone number. Because affiliates know they can just insert some java script and freeze your computer and
if they’re being paid out to get phone calls to a company, they push the boundaries there or– – Because they’re so
focused on the conversion, they just wanna make money. – Or if affiliates are incentivized to get sales of a certain product, they might make claims
that are unwarranted like they might say something like, oh Dr. Oz recommends this, this product. Dr. Oz, Oprah, and the Rock all recommend this product. – [Eric] Rock. So you should buy it
and people will buy it, thinking those people recommended it and the affiliate will
make the commission. But because the affiliate
pushed a little too hard to get the sale and they basically
did something that’s unethical and irresponsible and
frankly, it’s just illegal. – So, what I’m hearing is
affiliate marketers can sometimes push the boundaries so
much that they can make a brand almost look bad. Basically, I can take
a really good product and run it on a porn site and that can just totally destroy the– – Or that, or you could
advertise in places the person doesn’t wanna advertise. Maybe there are people on
porn sites that wanna buy a product but the owner
of that brand doesn’t want their product advertised on porn sites. That’s a perfect example. – So, how do people do affiliate marketing or performance marketing the right way? The reason I say
performance marketing, too, is because people are operating
on performance, right? So, you tend to do affiliate
marketing the right way, so how do people do it the right way? The John Crestani way? – The John Crestani way
of affiliate marketing. First I would say work with
companies that you trust. ClickFunnels is a perfect
example, I trust ClickFunnels. Work with companies where
you can look up the owner and the owner is a reputable person, an ethical person, a responsible person. I haven’t met him, but I know Russell Brunson and he’s owner of ClickFunnels and he’s a great person. So, work with companies that you trust. And as I said, you could
even make your own deals. Another way to do affiliate
marketing the right way is make sure you have that dialogue. Make sure you have
communication back and forth with whoever you’re working with. If you’re thinking about doing
advertising on porn sites, for instance, communicate that. Say, hey is this okay? But I think it’s just, really, you’ve got to treat it like, you can’t treat it like some
sort of get rich quick thing, you have to treat it like a business. You’re working with clients. These affiliate companies are your clients and you’ve got to have
that two-way communication. – Basically what I’m hearing
is treating the client as if it was part of
their marketing team, too. And you wanna do things
that are above water. – Exactly, exactly, exactly. – Great. Alright, so if you enjoyed this video and you wanna continue to
