I tend to stick to just a few affiliate platforms as too many creates a real mess of things. Because of that I'm very picky with what platforms I do promote. In this article I'm going to go over my top three affiliate programs for 2023 and why.
I've been searching for a good mailer for a long time. Not only good but one that doesn't charge me a arm and a leg. After years of trying out countless auto responder systems like Aweber, Active Campaign, Mailchip and so on I finally found the one I'm going to stick with and that's Mailer lite!
It offers all the features you need such as automations, API, email template builder, lead capture pages, form builders and the biggest plus was it integrated with my builder I use for my websites Thrive Themes.
Mailerlite also comes in at one of the most inexpensive auto responder platforms while still giving you plenty of power.
I knew I wanted to use a builder for my blog and work on rebuilding it all. It's been running for years on a custom built theme I spent thousands to have someone build and any time I wanted to update anything in detail I would either have to hire in a dev or learn it and do it myself. Not the best when you're trying to scale things.
That's when after nearly two years of deep research and trying out page builders Thrive themes came out on top. It's light weight meaning faster load times compared to competitors like Elementor which is a resource hog, Divi and Optimize press.
Not only that but Thrive themes offer has a ton of extra bonuses. It has a lead capture builder with triggers which replaced Optin monster which was costing me $29 a month and still had limitations and it also had a built in membership area builder that I could use. While not the best it still offer a robust enough membership option to hit the ground running all for a low cost compared to buying all of the tools separate.
If you blog, want to build your first membership area/course and lead capture is a focus for you the Thrive themes is a must in my opinion.
There's nothing just like ClickFunnels yet. If you're looking to setup a series of pages with powerful marketing tools behind it such as one click upsells, automation webinars and more then ClickFunnels still takes the top. It's an expensive tool but if you're looking to scale your business quickly through direct selling and not so much membership areas then ClickFunnels is the place to get that done and get it done well.
