In my opinion, there are five levels of Affiliate Marketing.
The first level is what I call BASIC or level one. This is the level that I was taught initially...it is basic and does not include list building or sales funnels. In level one, you send your prospects directly to your affiliates. This is not your best choice, but it does work when it is done right.
The next level is what most people learn or should learn. It includes all the steps that are available as an affiliate marketer. It works well but it is SLOW because you are taught to do ONE thing at a time.
Level Two Marketing or Blitz Marketing is what I call affiliate marketing on steroids. Why? You create multiple campaigns all at the same time. This multiplicity helps to maximize your efforts and, of course, you also maximize your results.
Ultra Blitz Marketing
Ultra Blitz is simply using the strategies of Blitz Marketing and combining it with affiliate marketing tools. Get even more done in less time.
There are actually more levels such as product creation and affiliate networking and joint ventures and collaborations.
