The Lazy Guide to Affiliate Marketing

Learn all my super simple tips and strategies for how I earn $1.5k+ a month
through affiliate marketing without really trying - minimum effort, maximum $$!

I know what you’re thinking…

Yet another thing to juggle.
Oh, that will be a lot of work.
I don’t want to become a pushy affiliate marketer!

Good. Because that’s not how I roll either.

If I’m honest… I’m always a little baffled by how much money my affiliate marketing “strategy” brings in despite how little effort I put into it and how totally casual I am about it.

Affiliate marketing is something that hardly ever lands on my to-do list, and yet…

  • Over a quarter of my income comes from it.
  • I make at least $2000 every month from affiliate commissions.
  • I have a steady flow of PayPal notifications for anything between $3 and $1000s.
  • I’ve received as much as $11,659 from a single payout.
  • Every now and then I find myself among the top affiliates for the likes of Denise Duffield-Thomas and Stu McLaren.

All of this while 100% half-arsing my affiliate marketing - and leveraging a fairly small audience!

Through sheer laziness, I sort of accidentally discovered ways to maximize my affiliate marketing sales without...

  • Writing thousands of blog posts, with affiliate links after every comma.
  • Using super complicated Pinterest strategies - or any Pinterest strategies at all.
  • Being super pushy, super salesy all the time, or joining a pyramid scheme.
  • Doing massive promotions that take as much work as a big ol’ launch… Yawn!
  • Heck, I didn’t even bother creating that classic “Resources” page on my website, where people typically pile all their affiliate links - though hey, I should!

My approach to affiliate marketing is simple because I’m not an affiliate marketer. 

I’m an online business owner who has taken a whole lot of courses and used a whole lot of tools. And I’m happy to share and promote the stuff that has moved the needle in my business, so they do the same for other businesses as well.

The strategies I teach inside The Lazy Guide to Affiliate Marketing are all about being a super awesome, super helpful person, and the principle that “sharing is caring” - because it is!

And while no one is explicitly teaching you to not be a “super awesome, super helpful person”, no one is teaching you how to do so the lazy way - a.k.a. the way it has to be when you’ve got a ton of things going on already, and affiliate marketing isn’t really your focus, but hey, the surprise money would be nice. 

Want to effortlessly bring in extra $100s to $1000s a month with 5 minutes work here and there?

Want to significantly increase the chances of someone signing up through your affiliate link,
even in super saturated affiliate markets?

Want to regularly have clients and strangers messaging you to see if
you’ve got an affiliate link for something?

(and get all of that the lazy way?)

It’s time to join the lazy affiliate marketing revolution.

The Lazy Guide to Affiliate Marketing is an online course covering the super simple strategies I use to earn $1.5K+ a month through affiliate marketing - without really trying.

Like all of my courses, this is about minimum effort, maximum $$.

These are the same strategies I’ve used to be...

  • 5th best affiliate for Denise Duffield-Thomas in 2015 - despite having no list at the time.
  • Top 25 ConvertKit Affiliate - ya'know rubbing shoulders with the likes of Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income.
  • Over $55,000 lifetime commissions from ConvertKit - including a single payout of over $7,000.
  • Top affiliate for the One Woman Shop Solopreneur Success Bundle in 2017 - including top affiliate for 3 of the 5 days of promotion!
  • Top 25 affiliate for Stu McLaren's TRIBE launch in 2019.
  • 2nd for most leads generated for Rebecca Tracey's Uncage Your Business launch in 2017.
  • 3rd best affiliate for Female Entrepreneur Association's February Friends Members Club promo in 2018.
  • 29th best affiliate for SamCart's summer launch in 2017.

(I am so bemused every single time I see my name in a leaderboard email because it’s 100% all lazy affiliate marketing.)

I'm not B2B, is this going to be relevant to me? +

I've yet to come across a client who 100% can't incorporate a little bit of affiliate marketing into their business. Plus, just because you're not B2B doesn't mean you don't know other business owners - and other business owners need software, courses, etc just like you!

It's honestly just a bit of a mindset tweak (which I cover in the course) and suddenly you'll be seeing the potential to make/save money with affiliate marketing everywhere.

Just last year, I recommended Dashlane (my fave password manager - and yep, you bet that's an affiliate link) to my real life BFF, and I got 6 months Premium for free!

If you're not sure though, please leave me a message in my chat box with your niche and I'll get back to you with ways affiliate marketing can work for you!

I have no list, no website visitors, no social media following because I'm new to online business. I need those things, right?! +

Nope. Inside The Lazy Guide to Affiliate Marketing I'll show you the strategy I used to be Denise Duffield-Thomas' 5th best affiliate when I had no list and I'd just started as a VA 4 months prior. I'm not special. I don't have secret superpowers. In this course I'm teaching you things you can weave into your business from the very beginning to steadily build up your affiliate income as you start to get subscribers, clients and customers.

I AM SO BUSY. How much time do I need for this? +

There's so many ways to incorporate affiliate marketing into your business (which I cover in the course). Some obviously take more time than others, but it can be as little as 5 - 10 mins, a couple of times a month.

Like anything, the more you do, the better the results. But for me, at this point, I'm spending maybe 5 hours a month specifically on affiliate marketing and getting the kind of results I am.

Affiliate marketing is hands down the easiest way I know to make money. I say it's worth finding little bits of time for!

Isn't affiliate marketing scammy? +

I don't feel scammy. Do you think I'm scammy? I really hope not. I only recommend products I personally use or have direct experience of.

Here's the thing, I get people actively asking me if I have affiliate links for things on a weekly basis. That wouldn't be happening if what I was doing was scammy. Everything I teach in The Lazy Guide to Affiliate Marketing is all about value, trust and relationships.

What if I decide affiliate marketing isn’t for me? +

Affiliate marketing might not be something you've really considered before. And I totally get it if after going through this course, you decide it isn’t relevant for your business.

That’s why The Lazy Guide to Affiliate Marketing has a totally no-quibble 7 day refund policy. If you sign up, take a look through the course, and you're just like "oh god, I can't see any way to make this work for me!", then I'll happily refund you in full as long as you let me know in 7 days.

  • I have so many ideas now! I've got a whole list of programs to sign up with and things to do to regularly promote affiliate offers to my audience. It feels so much easier and doable now. I used your tip during a Cyber Monday sale and I got 6 sign ups! I've already gotten so much out of this course. Thank you for creating it. You presented this info in such an easy to understand way that I think even beginners would walk away feeling like they could do this.

  • On our call you mentioned how you make lots of money with affiliate marketing without even trying. And you gave me the tip of… [join the training to find out!]. That was genius! It's like...why didn't I think of that before?! It has made it very clear to me which things to focus on for affiliate sales.
    Name Sarah Guilliot
  • Before the course I was a bit 'meh' about affiliate marketing, I thought it would take more effort than I'm willing to make. However the training was laid back and swiftly actionable. I can get creative with how I approach affiliate marketing - it's not all sleaze and shameless plugs!

  • I wanted to drop you a quick line to say that, since purchasing your course, I've got two affiliate payouts from a hosting company I recommend. I've never had anything from them in the couple of years I've had them listed on my site, and the funny thing is I've done absolutely nothing to market it! So your Lazy Guide works even when you do precisely nothing 😀

  • I booked an Affiliate Strategy Session with Lizzy just as I went into an affiliate promotion where it felt particularly important to me to do a great job. I’d already started the promotion, but parts of the plan were not sitting quite right with me. As result of Lizzy’s laser sharp thinking and smart suggestions some of my ideas were changed 360 degrees and I left the call feeling so much better about my plan.

    As a result of this session, and doing some key things very differently than I had in previous affiliate promotions, I was astounded when I finished 2nd on the leaderboard.  This was ahead of a number of quite heavyweight influencers whose reach was immense in comparison to mine.  Which just shows the power of a great relationship with your community combined with a smartly thought out approach to the promotion – and Lizzy is just the person to help with that.

    That hour spent with her paid for itself not just in affiliate commission and prizes, but also in the improved relationship and standing I have now in the eyes of the person I was promoting. Happy all round!
