Do you remember the Choose Your Own Adventure book series from the 1980’s? Maybe I’m dating myself and showing my age but these books were extremely popular in my youth. The general idea behind them was that the reader got to choose which path the hero in the story would take…
If the reader wanted the hero to go down the path on the right, the reader would turn to page 5….If he wanted the hero to stop and not go down any path but back track, he’s turn to page 6…And the story progressed depending on which path the reader decided for the hero.
Cool huh? Having the power to ‘choose‘ your own destiny! Well I’ve got some great news for you…When you get started in affiliate marketing, that’s exactly what you are ‘choosing’ to do…Create your own destiny.
Now of course, there are external factors that come into play that you have no control over, but each and every new day is a blank slate when you get to paint your masterpiece. that’s the most exciting thing about online and affiliate marketing…We get to choose how we proceed!
A few years ago I developed a budgeting strategy for affiliate marketers called The Pizza Plan. I basically tried to make budgeting…Sexy…And while it became a very popular re-book and strategy, I revisited it recently and thought how I could improve upon it.
The general idea behind the Pizza Plan was to keep your monthly costs to around 70-75 dollars a month. Well, it’s 2017 and let’s see what we can cut out and make it even more affordable…
I call this ‘Choosing Your Own Adventure…Pizza Plan Style‘.
I came up with two paths….And depending on what path you want to take, can ultimately decide your future in the business. Neither path ir right or wrong, it just depends on what you want to accomplish.
Path A is the Free to Low Cost Advertising Path
It starts with RocketResponder, your auto responder and email management tool for $20 a month. I think it goes without saying, email marketing is of the UTMOST importance for everyone, so adding Rocket Responder in here is a no brainer.
Next, you need to track your advertising and results. Sure you can use Google Analytics for free, however you need a degree in computer science to figure it all out. We created Trck.me for you in mind. Simple, effective, powerful analytics with the affiliate marketer as the primary user. And for $9 a month, it’s a steal.
And finally, Kore4. This is the glue that binds. You get exclusive upgrades and huge bonuses in 5 of our top performing programs and the ability to take part in the most lucrative affiliate program in the business. That runs $30 a month.
So path A’s totals….$59.00 a month.
Now we’re into Path B….That focuses on the marketing that wants to spend their time list building.
We start with RocketResponder and Trck.me again, because these evergreen products are not up for debate. To be in business online, you NEED an autoresponder and analytics tool.
But what makes this different is List Viral
List Viral adds a unique tool to your arsenal which not only crates your squeeze pages for you, but also develops and loads up custom auto responder email series for you to use to help develop relationships with your list. List Viral has dozens upon dozens of list building packages that automatically does your email management for you, so you can focus on building your list and building your brand.
That is $24.00 a month for a total of $53.00 a month for Path B.
What path will you choose? Both translate into an exciting future for you but again, you are the writer of your future! Let’s see where you can take your business…

Hi Jon I really like the Pizza Plan. It’s a great way to get started for sure! 🙂
Thanks Barb, yup budgeting is so important…But how cool would it be if affiliates stuck to the game plan for the long term…Wow, there’d be a whole lot of successful people running around the business lol
Hey Jon, quick question. Is List Viral a built in autoresponder? I already use Rocket Responder so would I need both? Great article by the way!
Nope, it’s a separate program that uses Rocket Responder. It basically helps you build leads through RR.
No problem, my pleasure!
So is there any kind of a process that explains how to tie all these pieces together, for a non techie like me?
Jeff, for sure man….
I mean depends on which ‘path’ you take….But both require ‘leads’ or subscribers. List Viral will give you the tools to help build your list using Rocket Responder. It provides the email campaigns, squeeze pages, all you have to do is send traffic to the squeeze pages and the system literally does the management for you
The Kore4 side is more of an opportunity. Giving people a great upgrade in our various traffic generating tools but still uses the leads to drive sales. Everything rises and falls on your mailing list, which both paths focus on.
I followed your advice on January 18 and I already have 28 registered with the TRCME set, Rocket and Viral list to date on January 25 and am amazed by the quick results ….
I encourage those who would still hesitate to start with one of the two proposed budgets. Still thank you for all your trick in marketing
Sorry for my bad English
That’s awesome! So cool to hear that. Thanks so much for sharing!
This is the right website for anybody who would like to find out about this topic.
You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not
that I really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a
subject that’s been written about for years.
Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!
