The Renegade System has already done the grunt work when it comes to the affiliate marketing products that you are going to sign up for. They have created a simple easy to use program for storing your unique code so when your customers find a product in the back office that will be useful you will earn a commission.
The affiliate marketing products that the system offers are reputable, respected. and trusted programs related to business. There are well over 40 programs so its highly unlikely that you will need them all, but I'm sure you will find a handful that will benefit your business.
The idea here is to sign up for as many, if not all, of the affiliate marketing products because what you may not need for your business; one of your downline members may need for theirs. By not becoming an affiliate is a missed opportunity. Plus you may find a lot of these products will work well in your content as you write articles adding more value for your visitors.
A word of caution though; if you don't create your own method of keeping track of the affiliate marketing products you will be making more work for yourself and you'll have no way of knowing whats hot and whats not.
This was my first mistake and it took me more time to track down my affiliate marketing products and codes than it did when I signed up for the programs. The Renegade System only tracks products created by the Renegade Network Marketer.
Heres my advice: Create a document and name it:
RNM Affiliate Marketing Products
- Program Name
- URL of affiliate page
- user name
- text link embedded with your code
The minute that you spend now doing this will save you hours later.
Two Tiered Programs
Whenever you find a good two tiered affiliate marketing product to promote you've got a winner. If you aren't familiar with how a two tiered program works it basically pays you a commission on your sales and also a smaller commission on sales made by members who have joined to be an affiliate through your link.

Site Build It is my personal favorite. I first heard about SBI from the Renegade System and without a doubt it is the best business decision that I've ever made. SBI's affiliate marketing products and program have over 70 landing pages for any target market but its their site building knowledge that is most impressive. You will build your own website following their famous C-T-P-M process and join over 60% of other SBI sites that rank in the top 3% of all websites. Their search engine optimization is second to none partly because wordtracker is part of their keyword research software and SBI costs less than a dollar a day.
Allow me to elaborate for one moment on Site Build It. Having your own website enables you to have so many more advertising opportunities. Your online business starts with content followed closely by traffic. So how do you get traffic? How do you get your website ranked in the first 3 pages of the search engine results pages?
Brainstorm It and Analyze It thats how. Brainstorm It will do vertical and lateral searches based on your seed word giving you hundereds of profitable (high demand – low supply) keywords on which you will write content. Analyze It will tell you exactly what needs to be fixed within your content to get your page ranked highly. Once you pass the analyze It test your good to go.
This blog is not an SBI site but I use the brainstorm It and Analyze it tool to optimize my pages. You could spend a fortune for these kinds of tools but they are all included. Case in point: The page titled “Brainstorming A Profitable Website Concept” got found on page 1 sixth listing for the search term “what is a site concept keyword” the thing is the competition for that keyword was 19,000,000. Thats a lot of competition. So for fun I did a search for “site concept keyword” and are you ready for this? Page 1, the 10th listing and the competition was 208,000,000. Now had I done a traditional method of researching that keyword phrase and seen this kind of competition I never would have written that article.
I recently found an interview with Ann Sieg ( The Renegade Network Marketer) and Ken Evoy ( Site Build It) that you may want to listen to you can get here.
Oh, and one last thing. I knew nothing, nada, zip about building a website and writing for the internet. SBI is simply the best and there is so much more thats all included for $299.00/yr. Thats less than wordtracker charges just for keyword research and wordtracker is part of SBI.

Clickbank Affiliate Marketing Products
The Clickbank affiliate marketing products in the renegade system are the easiest ones to upload. All you have to do is apply for an account and input the nickname that you choose into the back-end affiliate URL section for Clickbank. Once you are a member you are automatically approved for all products in their data base including those in the renegade system.
Clickbank has a reports section that will show you how many impressions, clicks, and sales that your links have received. You can also filter the reports in which ever way you choose such as: by day, by week, by month, and by date range. They recently changed their web page so in order to check your stats you need to click reports and then click analytics. You'll notice a section called by tracking ID. I've mentioned the importance of tracking in previous tutorials and you need to track your campaigns. So here's how to set up tracking for your links.
When you create a hop, clickbanks term for a link, you have the option of having it encrypted and adding a tracking code (TID). Your code can be up to 24 digits using numbers and letters. If you forgot to add a TID to your link not to worry it can be done manually. All you need to add is ?tid=yourtrackingcode to the end of the link. Its that simple. Now you want to make sure that the link is working right and you get credit for the sale.
- Highlight your hoplink and enter it into the address bar
- click enter
- click the buy now button on your vendors website
- scroll to the bottom of the page and look for [affiliate=yournickname]
- if its there you are good to go
Below are a few affiliate marketing products from Clickbank that are stored in the renegade system.

GoDaddy - I use GoDaddy and have been quite satisfied with their service. Having your own domain name is critical to presenting yourself as a professional. Plus you can't beat the price. Doesn't your-business-name.com look better than your-name.therenegadenetworkmarketer.com?
Single Tiered Affiliate Marketing Programs
It took me a while to find all the programs that are in the back office. The Resources and Training section is where you will find them. You'll need to hunt around the different sections but you will be affiliated with all of these programs when you sign up for everything in the back-end. Single tiered affiliate marketing products will pay you commissions on sales that you generate but they don't offer an affiliate referral program. Here are a few of the programs that you can find.
Perry Marshall – The Definitive Guide To Google Adwords Perry Marshall is becoming a household name in the adwords circles. If you ever consider PPC advertising you need to listen to this guy he's very good.

The affiliate marketing programs in the back office are just one way that you are going to earn passive income while you concentrate on your main business model. You will find that quite a few of these programs will work nicely into your free web site content as you start building a web presence. You don't want to throw all your eggs in one basket; by creating multiple streams of income your business will thrive. So go back to the renegade system and start signing up right now!
Be patient; the time you invest now will reap rewards in due time.
