.I started my Internet Marketing journey last year (~ August/September 2019) to sell affiliate products through Instagram niche accounts. So I created some accounts for the following niches:
- Biz opportunity (make money online)
- Mental health (meditation, biohacking)
- Healthy foods
And what I started doing was to curate content and post them to these accounts (I was using Jarvee)
But that time Instagram was very hard, blocking accounts with little actions, so I spent maybe 3 months in this endeavor and then I switched to focusing in one other niche that I had discovered at the time - digital embroidery - it was a course teaching how they could make their own embroidery designs and stop paying for someone else to design it.
So I did an instagram account for that product, started putting content in it, along with a facebook page, and I would go in facebook groups for this niche offering free embroidery designs so I could start getting a bit of trust of people in this market.
I even used a wordpress plugin to deliver the files in exchange for their emails to slowly start to build a list of customers within this niche.
With a month of work, I had my first sale of this product (and my first sale as an affiliate).
However, all my sales were manually closed. I would talk with them in Facebook chat and offered this course - explaining how they would benefit from learning to make their own embroidery designs.
I started selling around 1 course per week, but all my time spent like this:
- gather free embroidery designs so I could give them away
- Post content on Instagram and Facebook page and on the Facebook groups
- DM the leads that interacted with my posts through Instagram and/or Facebook chat offering the course
- A small percentage would buy it
This product commission was meager (50 BRL), so I gave up after some months doing it.
Recently I took some economies I had and bought GrooveFunnels lifetime license - and now I’ve created some gigs on Fiverr to sell some services:
- landing pages (done with GrooveFunnels)
- Lead magnets
- Instagram posts
- Articles (SEO content)
Last month my income from Fiverr gigs was 245 BRL (still less than a minimum wage, but it’s a start)
What I want to start doing is to begin promoting GrooveFunnels as an affiliate now, but still don’t know how to start (what market to target).
My next step is to develop a customer avatar for that product. I know that it’s competitors are ClickFUnnels, BuilderAll, InfusionSoft, etc.
Well, that’s it for now. Any feedback on this journey will be appreciated.
