Section 3: Creating A Bonus

We’re done tackling the essential elements in making a bonus offer. This is now the time to introduce to you different kinds of bonuses for you to choose.

You can choose a bonus offer for different purposes depending on the kind of business you are dealing with.

Exciting, isn’t it? Then, let’s continue.

You might want to use a bonus as extra products or service. Then you can surely use special report to add some value to your original product.

Special reports can be in many forms. First, it could be conducting an interview with a knowledgeable person to discuss about the product or maybe something that is relevant to the product. For an instance, there are some books to help someone about something plus a transcript of the interview as a bonus. In the interview, the discussion is all about dating, and then naturally the interviewee shares some expert insights and ideas with regards to dating.

Special report functions as a teaser for the reader. And you don’t have to show the entire picture in a special report. This would make the readers more interested and curious that as a result they end up buying the product.

What about guiding or providing supplementary knowledge to help the product’s users?

Then I think videos are what you need.

People nowadays are more exposed and more convenient with visual experience than printed or written words. In addition, videos are suited and very effective for step-by-step learning process.

Videos can definitely add to the value of your product since it helps the user to understand the product better and it is what they are usually looking for.

Software or Tools

If you want to make your bonus CRAZY attractive, consider using software or tools to offer great advantages as a bonus offer.

Taking price into consideration, software or tools are usually expensive and add EXTREME VALUE to your offer. Then, when you offer a free tool as a bonus, the users would definitely jump at the chance to make the purchase immediately.

They are categorized as rare and rarity equals exclusivity, which makes it more desirable to the customers. Software and tools are always needed by customers and any additional tools that can help someone be more efficient will be valuable.

A very irresistible offer for example is a product related to photography and the bonus is an editing tool, which has of high value. Also, it’s relevant to the product, making it more attractive desirable.

Section 4: How to Prepare Your Email Sequence

We have all heard different opinions on how we are supposed to communicate with YOUR email list. You need to communicate with your list, as much as you feel you need to.

The most effective way to make money as an affiliate is through email marketing.

Any good product vendor will provide you with enough emails swipes to mail out everyday of the launch period. You will want to review these email swipes and re-write them in your own voice. DON’T BE LAZY! The lazy marketers will not do this and end up in spam folders. You have a better chance of hitting the inbox with unique emails and not the same one that every other affiliate is sending. Change your headlines also to get good open rates.

Using emails effectively can drastically increase your affiliate commissions but if you add frequency and scarcity to your email campaign you can make even more money!

For example when a product launch is ending the last 3 days of the launch period can make you as much money as when the launch started if you follow a proven strategy.

Day 1 – Send 1 email
Day 2 – Send 2 emails
Day 3 – Send 3 emails

These emails are strategically setup with timing and delivery.

A lot of Vendors organize an affiliate contest as a competition where the one with the most number of sales in a given period of time will win a prize usually in cash or as rewards.

In order to increase your sales for the affiliate contests, you can use the scarcity factor as your sales technique. This technique creates a sense of urgency for customers to purchase a product or accept an offer by presenting it as limited or limited for a short period of time.

This email strategy is a great way to get on the leaderboards.

Section 5: Use Social Media Outside The Box

The use of social media is good for increasing the reach of your audience. We have here the top 5 main social media websites that would cater every company’s need for promotion for specific types of business.

Facebook Live Video

Facebook Live Video is a relatively new format similar to the Periscope platform (which is great to reach out to as well) but this is an awesome way to get your message out there and build a new audience.

Make sure you plan out your live video content. Don’t just go out there with nothing important to say. Teach your audience about the product, your bonus and help them learn something that will help them with their business that’s related to the product you are promoting.

You can add link to your bonus page in the video description. You can then share your video with appropriate groups or pages. Or your audience can share you content too.

Make sure you reply to comments and communicate with your audience after the video is over.


It’s possible to post images, videos, links and text to twitter as long as it would not exceed to 140 characters for every post.

Twitter is so quick. Tweet a link to a new post and Google will pick it up immediately.

Integrating social media platforms with your autoresponder is a great way to get your email promotions in front of more eyeballs.

Tweet about your Facebook video you just created.


You Tube gives you the freedom to create videos that educate and inform, entertain or inspire people without the aid of professional media company.

In selling products or services focus should be on your customer or potential customers. Provide them something that is free, interesting and of great value so that they will remember you when they decided to use their hard earned money to purchase something they need.

Always include your links within the video description.


The most important question is – do you want to bring your affiliate business to a whole new level of success?

The second question is how some super affiliates achieve their incredible commissions in higher numbers?

The good news is the answer for the second question is no longer a SECRET!

But that is not the best part.

The best part is YOU CAN DEFINITELY DO IT. And in fact, anyone willing to do it can!

BONUS OFFERS is the answer!

Remember that the same product in any places is not special. It is not uncommon for a customer to want more than they pay. Yes, they are paying for the main product but no customers can refuse a better offer for something extra. That’s how a bonus works.

Bonus offers help you to make more customers to do the more purchase. Customers are after what they can get especially getting more than what they paid. This is how they think and bonuses work on that. Bonuses mean additional value to the deal.

By having a good offer through bonus offers you can get more purchases than those affiliates without the same good offer even if the same products are selling. It’s definitely your edge!

To make incredible bonus offers, relevance, greater worth, and rarity should be all the elements. Relevance is in the first of the list. Before anything else, a bonus should be relevant and in line to the original product. Secondly, always remember that the most important thing is making the sales.

So don’t worry about the worth of the bonus offer. Making the offer rare and exclusive makes the product more valuable and desirable. This would increase the probability that customers purchase the products or services.

I wish you much success on your journey!
