Have you ever gotten into trouble for doing a job too well? Let me introduce you to someone who has, Tom Polifka, a great friend of mine, and an OG Savage Marketer. He is such a beast with things like affiliate marketing that he’s found himself in the heat with major companies like State Farm. This is a greedy show and I knew he’d share the wealth. Check this out here are some incredible takeaways from this episode within the first 10 minutes! 

For your websites with affiliate ads:

  • Make your offers strong and relatable to entice your target audience.
  • Avoid mistakes like Amazon and make sure your speed is up par to evade massive sale drop-offs.
  • Utilize algorithms on platforms like Facebook and Google to expand the reach to your audience.

Amazing right? Here are a few tidbits about Tom before you dive deep into the episode. Tom is an entrepreneur with a love of all things business. He’s had his hand in insurance agencies, golf training businesses, real estate firms, stock trading, and affiliate marketing. His business model is empowering other business owners by teaching them how to profit online through advertising and automation. Tom firmly believes that having multiple sources of income is a key component of financial stability so through his top-rated podcast and his online courses he passes on this knowledge to other entrepreneurs that desire the same thing.
