Pat Flynn - Strategies To Turn Followers Into Superfans
We always love chatting with Pat Flynn, and in this episode, we discuss how to build super fans in your business, how to grow an audience ethically, how to promote affiliate offers to your audience and make good money through affiliate marketing in a very ethical way that makes customers actually thank you for doing it. Pat also discusses how he has been able to build a successful building with a great, appreciative audience without the need to run a ton of ads and self-admittedly not having the best SEO on his website as well. We also talk to Pat about how he got involved in some of the deals he has equity in. He’s not just an affiliate for products such as ConvertKit, Lead Pages, Teachable and Samcart, he’s also an advisor and gets some sort of revenue share. So we dive into how he has been able to leverage his podcast to then get involved in these equity and advisory deals. When you have listened, be sure to check out our previous chat with Pat and our conversation with Lisa Cherney for more insight on how to give insane value while being real to your audience. “With affiliate marketing, it’s the easiest way of starting to generate an income because these products already exist, people out there are already buying them, you just have to be the person that people trust to make that recommendation to them.” - Pat Flynn Some Topics We Discussed Include: * “Fannels” and how to ramp yours up (and no, we are not talking about soft pajamas!) * The amazing result you can get in under three years which will set you up for success * How Pat pivoted during the last time we had an economic downturn which changed his life forever * How to get great fan engagement and healthier all at once! * Tactics for when you are first starting out with affiliate marketing * How to stay passionate about the same topic for years * Common mistakes Pat sees on websites and how to differentiate yourself from the pack * What ‘What’s Up’ tactic that will make you really stand out * The pyramid of a fandom and why you should turn that funnel upside down Resources From Pat Flynn: * 123AffiliateMarketing.com * Smart Passive Income * PatFlynn.com References and Links Mentioned: * Superfans: The Easy Way to Stand Out, Grow Your Tribe, And Build a Successful Business * Are you ready to be EPIC with us?!

Business of eCommerce – 2020 Year In Review – E153
Sponsors: Drip – Get a free demo of Drip using this coupon code!Spark Shipping – Dropshipping Automation Software Transcript: Charles (00:00): In this episode of the business. E-Commerce I talk about why 2020 year end review. This is a business of e-commerce Episode 153. Charles (00:17): Welcome to the business. E-Commerce the show that helps e-commerce retailers start launch and grow their e-commerce business. I mean, host house plus ski, and I'm here today to talk about some of the highlights do a review of 2020 at the end, we're going to show some of my favorite clips, different interviews, different things we've spoke about over 2020. And let's just review this year. 2020 has been one wild ride earliest. You had the coronavirus hit. The world has changed. E-Commerce forever. We've seen back orders and shipping delays. You've seen issues in e-commerce that have happened at a scale, never imagined before, but we have all seen an influx of new buyers, trying comments for the first time. People in quarantine have had no choice, but to shop online, they've tried e-commerce and these are folks who've never tried it before. And now all of a sudden their buyers, their uses of e-commerce. Charles (01:16): And I believe that they're here to stay retailers I've talked to have said 2020 has been the best shower for them. And I think this is going to the trend is going to continue. So we can go and talk about all the downsides of 2020, but also there's been some huge upsides and we should definitely acknowledge effort and know that this might be the new normal, and we might be living in a world that's more connected than ever. And we start to understand how a delay in shipping can really affect the delay, getting a product into the hands. I want to look back at some of the episodes, some of the interviews I've done the share and highlight some of the really cool folks that I've talked with. There's a lot of interesting things that have come up. So let's do a little clip episode and I hope everyone has a great new year's and look forward talking to everyone in 2021. So let's get onto a few clips. A few highlights from this year is episodes. Speaker 2 (02:12): Well, the first thing that I just want to kind of start with is the difference between e-commerce and M commerce. For those of you that are listening, that may not really have a definitive knowledge, but e-commerce is commerce conducted via the internet and commerce is business done on a mobile device. Speaker 3 (02:30): I recommend you go all in. So if you don't have money for the course, but you want to launch a product and you, you are short in cash because I had some savings. If you don't have it, don't buy a course, go to YouTube, check out. You can find all this information on YouTube. I'm the kind of person that needs guidance, especially in a start. So just like Instagram marketing, Facebook marketing, any other kinds of marketing, it's, it's a different beast. But has most similar benefits and this year has been as you know, unusual Charles (03:02): To say the least. Yeah, for me, if anything is just evolving. Speaker 4 (03:07): Well, the important thing is that the email is that especially the past 12 months with also what's been happening in the world, the way the email has been used with other channels has become a lot more important. So the likes of SMS, the likes of messenger using things like quizzes to pull any email addresses. Charles (03:24): So what you do is your photos or 3d renders for your listing need to be showing the value of the product, not just, Oh, mine's a great photo, but the differentiation you did with the product. Speaker 5 (03:39): So when you start looking at, I need to get into a warehouse I'm, you know, maybe. So I think the first thing you have to do is you have to identify what is the warehouse in e-commerce we can be dealing with people who are operating out of a basement,
