I invited top affiliate Amit Mehta on to talk about some of the experiences of affiliate marketers whom he’s coached, addressing the question why many of them aren’t more successful than they already are.
Some of the topics we discussed:
What’s the difference between marketing success and failure and what’re the reasons behind this
What’s the major stumbling blocks that marketers constantly face and how do they break through them
If you’re an employee, how soon should you quit your job to go into affiliate marketing full time?
Techniques to increase your chances of business success
Why Amit has created a new Profit Swami blog, when he has a Super Affiliate Mindset blog
I had the opportunity to invite Amit Mehta and Anik Singal on the Friday Podcast to discuss challenges facing affiliate marketers these days, together with the impending launch of the PPC Classroom 2.0 program.
Amit’s is gaining a reputation as the $2.4m super affiliate and a regular speaker at events like Affiliate Summit and PPC Classroom.
Anik is founder of Affiliate Classroom and AC Certified, and recently ranked #2 in Business Week’s “Top 25 under 25″ article.
During our podcast, we discussed:
How Amit’s affiliate campaigns differ from other marketers
How to build your income to 4 figures a day
Steps you can take today to put together successful campaigns
The importance and how you can incorporate long-tail keywords in your affiliate campaigns
Whether there’s a conflict of interest between a merchant’s in-house SEO/SEM efforts and the efforts of affiliates

It’s been more than a week since I left Las Vegas after attending Anik Singal and Jeremy Palmer’s PPC Classroom Live.
So the question is “Was it worth a 20+ hour plane ride each way?”
Certainly a resounding YES!
I got to meet a bunch of great people and the stellar cast of speakers presented great content. Now it’s a matter of hunkering down and putting some of those ideas into practise.
The turnout was very respectable with the room filled to the gills…
It was great to hear how Anik took one of his info product sites, added CPA offers to it and have it generated $42,000+ to date this year.
Andrew Wee and Anik Singal
Just as you’re seeing a convergence of search marketing and PPC marketing, I believe the worlds of info marketing and lead generation/affiliate marketing are going to draw closer in the coming year.
Andrew Wee, Kirt Christensen, Greg Cesar
I look to Kirt Christensen as one of the pioneers in Internet Marketing, together with his partner, Terry Dean.
It was certainly illuminating to hear about his strategies for positioning yourself as a PPC management agency and it was pretty impressive hearing about some of the biggest Internet marketers he manages PPC campaigns for.
