All of the previous tips come down to this. That fantastic product that helped your family, remember it? Youíre now an affiliate for it right? YesÖthe one which gives you $25 every time you make a sale?

Tell your 350 names and addresses you have captured with the special report about this great product. Let them know how this awesome product helped your family. Make suggestions for them to purchase this great product.
