Dear Legendary Marketer Affiliate:
Matt here, Chief Marketing Officer at Legendary Marketer.
Today, July 20, 2022, we're executing on a year-long plan to put more money in the pockets of all our affiliates and make our affiliate opportunity simpler and easier to participate than ever before.
If you're currently an affiliate with Legendary Marketer (or you're considering applying to be an affiliate), be sure to read this entire post to get all the details.
Please don't skim read.
Read every word.
So, why are we executing this plan?
Because unlike many of the so-called “mentors” and “gurus” out there, we're constantly asking ourselves “how can we make being a Legendary Marketer affiliate the best experience any affiliate marketer has ever had?”
It's a question that most course creators and influencers don't ask, because…
1. Usually their offer is weak and their conversions are lackluster… so they end up spending all their time worrying about how to get people to purchase their products.
This gives them very little time to think about YOU and how they might serve YOU and make YOUR life easier.
But let me let you in on a little secret…
The 15-Day Online Business Builder Challenge offer has gone nearly unchanged for over three years, and at the time of writing this, there's only two months on record that have had higher conversion rates than July 2022.
This gives us plenty of time to split test and try a myriad of new things to make your life easier and make our offers convert even better.
In my humble opinion, right now is the best time in history to be an affiliate for Legendary Marketer.
The stats back that up.
So if you're wondering to yourself:
- “Have the conversion rates decreased?”
- “Is the market saturated?”
- “Has the opportunity passed?
The answer is no.
I've told this to Dave's face, and I'll say it here too… Dave is one of the best, if not the best offer creator I have ever seen. It's uncanny. Many affiliates fail to realize this, but in 12 years of observing highly skilled offer creators, I can't think of anyone better.
But it's not just about Dave.
Which brings me to point #2.
2. Most “gurus” and “mentors” mistakenly believe it's all about them and fail to see how a winning team is the key to longevity in this industry.
Over the past few years, Legendary Marketer has carefully accumulated a highly skilled team of A+ players.
This is largely due to the foresight of Dave Sharpe and the leadership team at Legendary.
From management to support staff to marketing to business plan advisors… We ain't building for a million dollar “launch.” We ain't building to be around for a month, or a year, or even 5 years.
In our 6th year of business, we've got decades on our mind. That's why we're called Legendary Marketer, not Mediocre Marketer.
So settle in… We're not your “new kid on the block” guru who will be here today and gone tomorrow.
We aren't going anywhere, and we've constructed a team of people who have taken Legendary Marketer to a level this industry hasn't ever seen (and we've got no plans of stopping).
3. Most “gurus” and “mentors” are looking for ways to stuff money in their own pockets (not the pockets of their affiliates).
Put simply, as you'll see below…
This isn't the case with Legendary Marketer.
And we're willing to put our money where our mouth is.
So, let's get to it already. What are the big updates?!?
1. The 1st Update Is The Biggest – We Have Eliminated the PRO Affiliate Fee!
Effective immediately, July 20, 2022, we are eliminating the $29.95 fee to be a PRO Affiliate with Legendary Marketer.
If you're currently a paying PRO affiliate, you will no longer be charged the $29.95 fee, but you will still earn the same commission percentages!
You won't earn less.
Your commission percentage will remain the same.
We won't take any money away from you.
We want to make 2022 the most profitable year for your business, and what better way to do that than cutting your business expenses!
IMPORTANT: We are not issuing refunds for any previously paid PRO Affiliate Fees. We are simply not going to charge the $29.95 PRO Affiliate Fee any longer. All affiliates will earn the same commission percentage, which you can see on our referral plan page.
In short – If you were a PRO affiliate before, you will still earn the same commissions you were already earning. If you were a FREE affiliate before, you will now earn what the PRO affiliates earn.
If you have questions regarding the commission percentages, please do not submit a support ticket until you have fully reviewed the referral plan page.
2. We're Eliminating Lead Capture Pages (And Autoresponder Integrations)
Frankly, let's keep this short and sweet. We want you to build your business, not ours. And while it might be nice to send your traffic to our lead capture pages, this feature has caused more questions than the value it's provided.
So Matt, what will happen if I'm sending traffic to a lead capture page hosted by Legendary Marketer?
Effective immediately, those links will be automatically forwarded to our sales pages, instead of our capture pages.
That means your traffic will still go to an affiliate link, it just won't be to collect them as a lead. They will instead go straight to a sales page.
This change was made with the goal of you creating your own lead capture page (which we teach very clearly throughout our 15-Day Online Business Builder Challenge, especially on day 3). You can review day 3 of the challenge if you need a refresher.
In short, this feature was being used by very few affiliates and affiliates who use their own landing page and bridge page historically are more successful than those who use company hosted capture pages, so again… We're trying to put more money in your pocket, by making our platform simpler and easier for you to use.
NOTE: Don't worry! Your existing leads will still be available to export in your affiliate backoffice!
3. We've Added A Highly-Requested Feature: Webhooks/Postbacks
Note: This is for more advanced affiliates, so if this is something you're unfamiliar with, I would recommend taking some time to research what webhooks are (preferably do your research before bombarding our support team with questions about this)!
In a nutshell, webhooks/postbacks will give you the ability to run paid ads and send ‘events' back to your paid ads platform that let you track your ads better.
We're now living in a time where tracking paid ads statistics has become more difficult than ever, and some advanced marketers have requested that we have the webhooks/postbacks so they can run retargeting ads to their traffic and see what converts.
Now you finally have that option!
I want to stress and reiterate, though… If you're a newer affiliate marketer or are completely unfamiliar with these, I would recommend not even worrying about this particular feature update right now. It really is an advanced tech feature that should only be used by those who really understand it fully.
4. We Have NEW Lead Magnets For You To Swipe & Deploy!
Hmmm… How many times can I say it before it gets annoying?
We just want to put more money in your pockets!
And I know I shared a little secret with you earlier about how well our offer is converting these days…
… but can I let you in on another secret?
After pouring through endless piles of data over the last year, we've discovered that many of our top affiliates at Legendary Marketer are generating massive amounts of traffic, leads and sales by giving away free reports and eBooks.
And what's even better?
Most times, the affiliates with the highest conversion rates are those who are offering a freebie to their audience in exchange for their email address.
What it shows us is that the highest quality lead is someone who feels like they got value from you.
It's Marketing 101 and it's as basic as it can get.
And yet sometimes we forget…
… WE AS MARKETERS HAVE TO LEAD WITH VALUE!
So, we decided to hand you two free giveaways in the “Custom Funnels” section of your affiliate dashboard.
If you're logged in, you can simply click here and go straight to that section.
The first is called “The #1 Online Business To Start In 2022.” Of course, we'll update that date when 2023 rolls around, but until then, this lead magnet can be used as a giveaway to help generate leads and sales by showing people our favorite online business to start!
The second is called “The Step-By-Step Checklist To Start A Thriving Freelance Digital Marketing Business In 2022.” Again, we'll update the dates when necessary. People love checklists and this short little PDF will give them a taste of what they're looking for and leave them craving more.
Both of these powerful lead magnets have placeholders for you to insert your affiliate links. We actually teach you how to do this yourself using free tools in just a matter of a few minutes. Click here to go to custom funnels and learn how to do it yourself!
The goal with both of these lead magnets is not just to provide you with Done-For-You swipe content to use.
We also want to show you just how easy it is to create these giveaways and resources for yourself!
We believe by demonstrating the exact steps it takes to create these types of giveaways, you'll feel empowered and emboldened to make your own (which is even more powerful and leads to even higher conversions).
It only takes a few minutes to do it, and we believe implementing something like this can have a massive positive impact on your conversions!
Last but not least, we want to express how grateful we are for your continued partnership with Legendary Marketer.
The team at Legendary Marketer values the partnership we have with so many of you.
You all have entrusted us with your audience, your traffic, and your leads.
We take this extremely serious.
It's an honor to wake up every day and try to help as many people as humanly possible see the opportunity that exists on the internet right now (and truly, the opportunity has never been greater than it is at this very moment).
We're here to do everything in our power to make you successful in your partnership with Legendary Marketer.
If you have questions, you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We only ask that you read every word of this blog post before sending a support ticket in. Oftentimes the answer we're seeking is hidden in plain sight!
Until next time,
