Jason: (00:05)
Broadcasting from a small mountain town high at the Colorado Rockies, my name is Jason Owens, and this is The Renewable Confidence Podcast — a show that renews your confidence in yourself and in your business every day.

All right, so several episodes go. I talked to about what I called Three Wheels That Every Business Needs. Okay? So if you haven’t heard that episode yet, uh, scroll through the list there, rewind a bit and go find that episode. It certainly will set the pace and set the stage for this episode. So in that episode I described one of the wheels that all of us need is a good referral pool, right? A good machine that we can just turn the crank and keep this thing rolling day after day, week after week. And it just keeps providing results for us, steady results that keep coming in week after week. So what I’m doing here on my end, uh, just to let you know that I’m doing my best here to walk the talk is that I am kicking off my affiliate program.

Jason: (01:04)
All right. So basically that is going to be my referral pool. Now, if any of you have, if you’re familiar with affiliate marketing, uh, you understand how powerful it can be if you haven’t ever heard the term before, you may have actually stumbled across it. So for example, uh, last night I was on Netflix. Okay. So I’m looking around, right? Uh, getting ready to do something with the family, getting ready to watch some of my own episodes there afterwards and up in Netflix, up in the top right hand corner or you know, you usually have the part there where you can sign in and whatnot. Um, what I saw was a little teeny gift box icon, right? So it’s a little teeny box. It has a bow on the top of it. And I said, huh, what’s that? So I ended up clicking on it. And what’s really neat about is that it opened up a page for me that said, Hey, you two could share the gift of Netflix with everyone else in your family, right?

Jason: (01:53)
Or everyone else in your network. Okay. So, and it has this link, right that that you can add this box that you can kind of copy and paste. And then off to the side of it, it has several different social media apps that you can go ahead and click on the button and it’ll instantly open up a Facebook, a post for your Facebook share or a WhatsApp sharing. And depending upon where you are and what social media channel you like, I think they had maybe about half a dozen there. And really what that lets you do is you can go show, share your quote unquote affiliate code with someone else and they can end up uh, going ahead and getting a free Netflix trial. Now the big deal for you is that, that you have gone out and shared, I don’t know if Netflix will give you a kickback on that or not.

Jason: (02:38)
Another example of that is blue apron. Okay. This is a meal delivery service. My wife and I have used for years. They do a great job there, have great vegetarian options and we have a certain number of meals that we could give away. Right? So what that happens or how that works is that we go ahead and send our link out to somebody. They sign up to get a free meal pack, right? So then we get credit, I guess for having a signed up people. Yeah. Uh, and I’m not sure again on that one, if we get a kickback now where it gets really fun with the affiliate, uh, affiliate codes is when you do get a kickback. So there’s also a thing that you can do. You can become an Amazon associate, right? So let’s just say that there’s a particular book that you have read and you absolutely love this book and you want to tell everyone about it.

Jason: (03:25)
Well, you can get your own special Amazon link, right? And when you send that out to your friends and family and they buy the book, you get a kickback for it, right? Amazon sets that up specifically so that you get a kickback. All right, so that’s nice on a book, right? And your kickback is going to be, I don’t know, something less than a dollar, something more than a dollar. It’s not going to be huge on a, on a 10 $15 book. Imagine if you ended up sending out a referral link on a two or a $3,000 digital camera, okay? Now we’re starting to get serious. Now we’re starting to talk about some serious money, something that you can feel right, so now we’re talking about something that a went from literally pocket change up to gas and grocery money. All right? There are people out on line who make very good livings or supplement their income substantially with affiliate marketing.

Jason: (04:15)
So how does that relate to me while I’m setting up right now? Just have invited the first half dozen or so people into the program and I’m going to give them a link and I’m going to say, Hey, share this link with your friends and family, your business associates, colleagues, and when they come in to my site and register, all right, well then you’re going to get credit for a lead, okay? And you will have your own dashboard that you can log into and track your progress. Okay? So you’re going to end up getting credit for leads. Then afterwards when some one of those leads makes a purchase, good news, you now get affiliate commission off of that, right? And we have the whole affiliate schedule, right? Uh, to, to go talk through there and how much you get paid for, for what gets sold and all that.

Jason: (05:01)
But that’s the big deal, right? That’s what I am setting up right now in my world. And I can go ahead and create some more episodes on this to let you know what it’s like as I get set up, what I ended up, uh, what software package I chose and why I chose them, right? So if you’re really interested in more of the nitty gritty details of that, it’ll be more than happy to share that with you on my podcast later. But I just want you to know that as I’m developing content here and I’m coming up with these, the overall structure, the overall framework of what I think my program needs to be and what I need to be all about, I am living that intellectual property. I am living this very framework that I’m now advertising for you guys. So anyway, just wanted you to know that.

Jason: (05:44)
Okay, so speaking of which, you guys absolutely need to get signed up for the renewable confidence signature program workshop that’s going to be happening here on December 12th and if you don’t know anything about that over to renewable confidence.com you’re going to see a link up in the top right hand corner that says signature program. Click on that. Get in touch with me. I would love to talk with you more about the program, tell you what it’s all about, send you some information and get you signed up cause I’d love for you to come out. This is a beautiful place and I love sharing this town with people. All right, you guys. So that’s it. Thanks so much for coming. My name is Jason Owens for our nubile confidence. We’ll talk to you soon. Bye. Bye.
