How to Make Your First Affiliate Sale

How to make your first Affiliate sale is the title of a fabulous ebook by House of Brazen. I purchased it, as the title intrigued me and if I am honest I wanted to see what the competition was up to.

Using Pinterest

Turns out I was rather pleased with my purchase and I learnt a little trick or two as well. The ebook focuses on using Pinterest to generate your sale or should I say sales because like all things online, once you have a strategy that works, you just rinse and repeat.
The ebook is much more than a simple “do this, then that” kind of ebook that I have unfortunately purchased in the past. It starts you right at the beginning by explaining Affiliate Marketing and then takes you through the steps you need to take to get yourself and your offering seen and clicked on in Pinterest. I actually think you could slightly adapt the strategy for other Social media platforms too.
This ebook is brilliant for new bloggers as it doesn’t assume that you know the jargon or the different tools you are going to use to create and promote your awesome Pins. She takes you through the processes in a very simple way and recommends some awesome places to get some ready made free images too. I might just have downloaded a couple myself.
One of the tools she uses was new to me. Boardbooster is an alternative scheduler to the one I use. Whilst I am not ready to give up Tailwind, I have started to use it since reading the ebook and I like it. Whether you buy the ebook or not I suggest you take a look at using it for scheduling your Pinterest pins. You get the first 100 pins free then plans start from $5 a month. No credit card required on sign up. Here is the Link. Boardbooster.
If you would like to take a look at Tailwind too then follow this link and you can get your first month free on me. Tailwind. It is a little more a month at $15, again after your first 100 pins but it has served me well. I intend to run them both concurrently as they do have their own unique features in terms of tribes and group boards.
Anyway back to the task at hand, my review of the ebook, How to make your first Affiliate sale. From start to finish the way she creates her pins and gets them seen on Pinterest is a strategy that works. Yes I tried it and actually had my first sale within 36 hours using her strategy. Not quite 24 hours but it was close. I chose her ebook as the product to promote so I could track my time frame.
Yes she has an Affiliate program to promote her ebook so you can get a total win win with this product. You get to learn and then sell her product as an Affiliate if you so wish. True earn as you learn. What’s not to like?
I want to tell you so much more about the ebook but then I would be stealing her work and that is a total no no. So I hope I have given you a flavour of what you will be getting if you decide to purchase it. For me it was worth the $25 for the work she has put in to creating and testing a strategy that works not just for her but for anyone willing to implement it. I have spent an awful lot more on totally inferior products. Shame on me but at least I can point you all in the right and not the wrong direction.
You may have noticed I only gave it a 9.5 / 10. It lost a .5 because it can only be downloaded 3 times and I forgot to save it twice. You have been warned, remember to save it.

    Hi Karen, thanks for the information about the ebook “How to Make Your First Affiliate Sale”. I’m not a newbie in affiliate marketing myself but I know many people who struggle to make their first dime. This book sounds like a perfect guide for them, I must read it too and start recommending it to others. I’ve actually never even thought about making sales using Pinterest, so the book will be useful for me too for sure.

    I’ve had no knowledge of Boardbooster nor Tailwind. I just took a quick look and they both look useful in making schedule posts, especially to Instagram from Tailwind? I’ll sign up with both of them now. Thanks for the great advice!

      Hi Ray and thank you for reading,

      I am not new to Affiliate Marketing either but I certainly learnt some new tips, especially as it focuses on using Pinterest to get sales. I wouldn’t be without Tailwind and Boardbooster is turning out to be useful too.

      Hi Vanessa and thank you for stopping by.
      It is definitely worth the $25 even though I am not new to Affiliate Marketing. We can always learn new things.

    Hi Karen, am delighted to have discovered your very honest post about this little book from House of Brazen. I have come across a number of pins and read a number of posts about this book, but your post sold me. THANKS! I will get to work (read the book and apply) and let you know how long it takes me to make my first affiliate sale. Do you think it matters that I’ve already made affiliate sales?

      Hi Lauren and thanks for reading.

      It doesn’t matter if you have already made an Affiliate sale at all. The book helps you to get more sales through Pinterest. It is the strategy that works and we all want more sales.

      Please do let me know when you make your first sale through a Pinterest Pin. I have now made several.

    Thanks for you review! It’s so hard to know if these ebooks and courses are worth the money. I feel like I end up doing more research on the authors then in my own blog! I am trying to get into affiliate sales and have been struggling like most with getting that first sale. I’ll definitely take a look at the ebook!

    This book sounds like a great resource.
    Do you know if there will be offering a promotional price?
    Thanks.

      Hi Cj and thanks for reading.
      I am unaware of any promotion on this product but will be sure to post if I discover one. I think the price of $25 is wholly just justified in terms of the work gone into the ebook.

    Sounds like you made a wise investment! How to attract people to my blog’s Pinterest, I haven’t the slightest idea!

      Hi Kara and thank you for reading,
      I would definitely give this ebook a read. If you are serious about your blog then using Pinterest as an advertising platform is a must.

      Hi Laurie,
      No I am afraid it is only currently available as an ebook.

      Karlee thanks for reading.
      It was definitely a great choice for me. I don’t promote anything I have not tested myself.
      I hope you find it useful too.
