Warrior Plus is one of the fastest-growing affiliate networks, it is also one of the first networks to pay its affiliates instant affiliate commission although that seems to be coming to an end.
This is my recommended affiliate network for affiliate who comes from Clickbank-banned countries, you can read more about the best Clickbank alternatives here.
If you’re new to Warrior Plus or affiliate marketing, in general, I am going to give you a step-by-step formula on how to make money with Warrior Plus.
How To Make Money With Warrior Plus In 5 Steps
In order to make money with Warrior Plus, please follow these steps. If you have an account you might want to skip the first two steps, because these were made for those who do not have an account yet.
Step 1. Create a WarriorPlus account
In order to access the affiliate system, you must have an account with WarriorPlus. If you do not have one, you can create one here: http://www.warriorplus.com/user/new
You will see a page like this.
All you need to do is to provide your username, your email address and a password then click Create an Account.
After that you will receive a verification email, all you need to do is to click the verify link and your account will be created.
Step 2. Add a Paypal Account to Receive Funds
In order to use the affiliate system, all WarriorPlus members will need a Paypal account that has had the permissions needed by WarriorPlus authorized.
i. Click on your username in the upper-right-hand corner of WarriorPlus.com and select “My Account” from the dropdown menu. or go to https://warriorplus.com/account
ii. Under Vendors/Affiliates, click on “Merchant Account”
iii. Click the green button that says “+ New Account” which will pull up a dropdown menu for you to select one of the following merchant account types: PayPal, Stripe, Bank Account (the US Only).
When you select one of the merchant account types, you will be redirected to the appropriate page to verify your account.
Once your merchant account is authorized, you are ready to request affiliate status for offers.
It is highly recommended to add at least one Paypal account, as most buyers/vendors use that service
Also make sure that you add your real name, your photo, and some social media to your profile, this will create trust between vendors and you and it will be easier for you to get approved when you request permission to promote a product.
Just go to edit your profile and add all the required information.
Step 3. Find a good offer to promote
In order to select a good offer to promote on Warrior Plus you need to click on the affiliate tab and then offers as shown in the image below.
This is my recommendation for selecting affiliate offers.
Select affiliate offers that pay you between $5 and $20 with a 100% commission on front-end sales.
In my experience, I found out that products that sell between $5 and $20 on the front-end offer have a better conversion especially if you’re just starting out. The only thing that you need to make sure of is that the offer has some upsells and that they pay you 100% commissions on the front-end funnel.
Select affiliate offers that were launched between 3 to 12 months ago.
Most Warrior Plus vendors want to attract super-affiliates during their launch period and in order to do this they need to keep high numbers like conversion ratio, visitor value, and low refund rates, so if you don’t have any sales yet there is a high possibility that you won´t be approved, in order to increase your chance you need to choose products that were launched 3 to 12 months ago, this won’t hurt the vendor so much and probably big guys are not promoting it anymore so it is easier for the vendor to approve you, I won’t go further than that.
When you make some sales, you can start to apply for new launches and this can skyrocket your profit.
Select offers with 1000+ sales
You need to promote a product with more than 1000 sales, this is because if the product can’t sell at least 1000 units after 3 months probably it is not a good product to sell.
Select offers with a conversion ratio of 10%+
You need to select a product with a conversion ratio of 10% or more, this means that for every 10 visitors you sent to the offer at least one purchased it, this is not an exact science, it could be a little bit more or a little bit less but I won’t go to promote a product with less than 5% conversion ratio.
Select affiliate offers with a $1 visitor value.
This means roughly you will make $1 for every persona that clicks that affiliate link, for example, if you send 100 visitors you will be expected to make around $100, again this is not an exact science, it can vary depending on your call to action and traffic source.
The higher this number the better, don’t promote an offer below $0.8 visitor value.
Select offers with less than a 10% refund ratio.
This is the number of people who purchased the product but decided to request their money back, this may be because the product is fraudulent, or the product didn’t deliver the promise on the sales page (that is why you need to buy the product for yourself first), even if the product is perfect some people will still ask for a refund, this is the nature of this business.
You need to make sure that the refund ratio is less than 10%, this means you will have one refund for every 10 sales, this is not bad, for me personally I go for products with less than 5%.
So these are 6 things you should consider when it comes to selecting Warrior Plus products to promote as an affiliate after you find the products that reach those requirements then move to the next step.
Buy the product
This is one of the deadly mistakes that new affiliates make, you want to buy a product before you even start to promote it.
I highly recommend buying a product before even requesting permission to promote it.
Why you need to buy a product.
To familiarize yourself with it: It is the best practice to know the product you’re promoting, first, this will make sure that the product is of high quality, and second, it will save you from embarrassment when one of your prospects asks you how to use the product if you don’t know how you will lose your credibility and trust me it is very difficult to get it back.
It is easy to get approved: Some vendors are very reluctant to let new affiliates promote their products especially if you don’t have any sales, the best way is to buy their product and let them know that you liked it (if it is the case) and you would like to promote it (send them a receipt to show that you bought the products), I got approved every time I used this trick.
Request permission to promote
In order to promote offers, you will need to be specifically approved by the vendor to do so.
In order to get approved this is what you need to do:
The “Get Offers” page is found in the Affiliate section (Click on “Affiliates” in the top menu and then “Offers”), and there you will be able to browse through the offers available for you to promote.
Select the offer you want to promote considering the criteria discussed in step 3.
So just click on the request button and you will be directed to the affiliate offer page where you can see some of the details.
Just fill out the form that you will see, tell them that you want to promote their offer, tell them the traffic method you will use and that is it.
Some of the vendors will approve you and some won’t if you’re not approved don’t worry try the next offer.
In order to increase your approval rate you can do the following
Record a video
You can use your smartphone to record yourself showing your face, you can say something like this, Hi, Vendors name, my name is ‘your name’ I am a new affiliate here at Warrior Plus, I have been learning how to build a business from ‘name a big marketer who teaches affiliate marketing’ I would like to promote your product, I will use ‘name the traffic strategy’ as my main traffic method to drive visitor to your offer, thank you ‘your name’.
You can adapt a little bit to fit you, after finishing that video upload it to youtube and make sure it is unlisted(only people with a link can see it).
Take a link and send it to them via the comment section on Warrior Plus, if you do this your approval rate will be more than 90%.
Add them to social media
Another way to get approval is to add those vendors to social media, you need to make sure that your social media have the same name as in Warrior Plus and that you use your real picture, after adding them, just reach out to them and tell them that you want to promote their product, most of the time they will approve you.
Those are two methods you can use to increase your approval ratio.
Once approved, you will receive an email from the system and then you will be able to access your affiliate links for that product.
Get Your Affiliate Link(s)
Click on “Affiliates” in the top menu and then click on “Get links” and you will be taken to this page here: https://warriorplus.com/wsopro/affiliate/get-offers.php?&show=active
On this page, you will find all the offers that you were approved to promote as an affiliate. Find the offer you’re looking for and then click on the green button that says “Get Link” next to the offer and inside the window that pops up, you will be able to copy Your Affiliate Link.
This is an example of an offer that meets all requirements I mentioned in the steps above, I made 2 sales when I was testing this, I just sent the offer to my list and the traffic is still coming.
Step 4: Cloak your link
After your affiliate link, I do not recommend promoting directly this link, I will recommend cloaking it.
In order to cloak your affiliate link, I will recommend using bit.ly. Just go to bit.ly, and create an account (it is free ).
Click on the create button, copy the long ugly affiliate link that you got from WarriorPlus, and paste it where it says PASTE LONG URL, then click create, that is it you will get the link like this one. bit.ly/37zF3mW.
Step 5: Drive traffic to your affiliate link
We are going to use Facebook to drive traffic to your affiliate offer.
Facebook is huge for free and paid traffic, but today I am just going to explain how you can generate free traffic from Facebook.
Basically, there are two ways to generate free traffic from Facebook, using your own Facebook profile and creating a Facebook group.
Generating free traffic by just using your profile.
Generating traffic by using your profile is the simplest way to generate traffic from Facebook, you can do it in just two steps.
Create and optimize your Facebook profile
You can use your current Facebook account or you can create a new one just for your online business, this depends on you.
Once you create your account, you will need to make sure you use your real name and photo, this will increase the credibility, also make sure that you add your affiliate link on your profile, you can add a small caption and a call to action, for example, I will help you to make $100 per day online, click the link below.
2) Find big Facebook accounts in your niche and start interacting with their content, leave comments, likes, and share their content, look to people who reply to your comments, and add them as friends ( some of them will add you first).
Some of these people will start coming to your Facebook profile to find out more about you, and since you optimized your profile in the first part, some of them will click on the affiliate link on your page, and some of them will buy from you.
This method works very well even if you have zero experience, let them come to you, do not spam them, do not inbox them but if someone inbox you with a question reply to them and build some connections.
What type of results to expect?
Depending on how the offer converts, you should expect one sale for around 10 people who click on your affiliate link.
How to increase your affiliate sales?
All friends that you will be adding are interested in making money online when you find a good product that teaches people a specific method of making money online, you can write a simple post like this, ‘I found a way to make money on Facebook without building a blog, making videos or building a list, if do you want to learn how the comment ‘I want it’ below’.
Some people will comment ‘I want it ‘, all you need to do is to send them an inbox with a simple message, here is the method I was talking about in the post, and then send them your affiliate link.
When you start to make money, you will need to start to build your email list and invest some money to buy traffic.
To build an email you will need an autoresponder and a landing page builder.
For an autoresponder, I will recommend Aweber.
For a landing page builder, I will recommend Systeme.io.
So these are 5 steps on how to make money with Warrior Plus, if you have any questions let me know so that I can help you. Take massive action and you will see results.
