Affiliate marketing can be quite lucrative. Personally, it’s my top income stream.
This page is dedicated to one of my favorite affiliate marketing programs online, not only because it consistently pays well, but because there’s a fantastic hidden marketing gem mixed in.
Please note, as an active affiliate myself, the links below are my personal referral links to the program. I may earn a commission if you click through and take action.
I’ve promoted these bundles as an affiliate, and as a contributor. I’ve made excellent income from them.
I’m talking about Ultimate Bundles. I can absolutely vouch for them, and for the people who run them. And like I said, do not miss the hidden marketing gem (more below).
If you don’t need further convincing, sign up now for the affiliate program.
What are Ultimate Bundles?
A few times a year, Ryan & Stephanie Langford and the Ultimate Bundles team put together a HUGE package (a.k.a. bundle) of ebooks, ecourses and other digital products. Then they sell the bundle at a steep discount.
They offer multiple bundles through the year on various topics such as homemaking, productivity, blogging, photography, essential oils and more. The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit is one I promote. (It goes on sale in October each year.)
Bundles typically include thousands of dollars worth of product for a fraction of the cost, usually between 90-97% off.
How can they offer the bundle at such a huge discount?
The key is collaboration. The UB team gathers a huge pool of authors, and combines all their products into one bundle. Then everyone promotes the bundle at once, resulting in massive sales. It’s like a tsunami marketing effort.
The profit comes from the total package. Plus the huge, coordinated marketing effort gets a lot more buyers. Everyone comes out ahead.
OK, I’m a blogger. Can I make money?
Yes. First, become an affiliate by clicking here. Second, promote the bundle when it’s on sale.
Once you’re signed up and accepted to the affiliate program, you will receive a unique-to-you affiliate link. Use this link whenever you talk about the bundle on your blog or whenever you promote it.
- Write about the bundle in a blog post. The link you use when talking about it should be your affiliate link. Don’t simply link to the standard homepage of the sale. USE YOUR AFFILIATE LINK. Your reader will land on the standard sales page, but your affiliate link is what tracks your sales and allows you to get paid. Make sure to disclose (read Are You Disclosing Properly?).
- Share your affiliate link in your email(s). Don’t just drop it in there. Include some context. Stories about your experience with a bundle work great!
- Include a graphic image in your sidebar (which will be provided along with the affiliate information you receive once you become an affiliate). Link that image to the sales page, again, using your affiliate link. (Related: How to Make a Clickable Image)
Whenever someone clicks through your affiliate link and purchases the bundle, you’ll get a commission. It adds up.
But how do I get people to buy the bundle?
Great question. One of the things I really appreciate about the UB team is they are super thorough. Once you sign up for the affiliate program, you have access to the affiliate portal with all kinds of excellent info…
This is the hidden gem of being an affiliate.
The affiliate portal is an excellent resource, not just for the bundle though.
It contains the usual stuff, like your affiliate codes, banners, graphics, images and buttons as well as your commissions ledger (once the sale gets started) and stats.
My favorite part of being an affiliate is the marketing tips, training and ideas. You’ll have access to webinars with the UB team explaining how a specific bundle is going to work, marketing tips, what they’ve learned from past bundle sales and more. Here’s a screenshot taken during a recent marketing webinar.
The webinar is awesome, but it’s not all. Other tools you’ll get are email copy (written by professional copywriters), tips for maximizing your sales, video interviews of successful sellers in the past and much more.
There is also a very active Facebook Group just for UB affiliates. It’s a goldmine of information.
Y’all. These are tips from seasoned bloggers and marketers. This is so valuable, not just for this sale but going forward as well.
Go sign up to be an affiliate now. Even if you don’t sell one bundle, you will come out ahead just in knowledge alone.
