This SaaS Grew to $3 Million ARR, Thanks to Affiliates...

How effective can affiliates be at promoting and growing a new SaaS company?

Aurelien Amacker from Systeme.io joins us here to share more about the success he’s seen with his all-in-one landing page, funnel builder, and email automation software platform.

Affiliate marketers have played a big role in the company’s growth - it’s now generating more than $3 million in Annual Recurring Revenue. He points to his affiliate program as the growth strategy that has played a pivotal role in their success so far.

The most interesting part?

Aurelien isn’t even a software developer! In the beginning, he outsourced the work, and now (presumably) his team takes care of all that.

So what does Systeme.io offer?

Systeme.io is a more affordable alternative to Click Funnels and some of the other sales funnel and email marketing platforms. And, generally speaking, it does a lot more than them too! It really is a multifaceted software tool for accomplishing a wide range of tasks.

Check out this screengrab of what Systeme.io offers.

Sales funnels, email marketing, a course platform, website builder, affiliate marketing management, and marketing automations.

It’s not just for small businesses either, as System.io has many customers making over $100K revenue per month using this platform.

And Systeme.io also uses the platform themselves to power their entire business making close to €300,000 per month.

In my Systeme.io review I try out the software for myself. There are a few screenshots of what SIO looks like on the inside, and I recorded a video testing it out.

And, as I mentioned, Aurelien answers a bunch of questions on:

  • how and why he started the business
  • how he’s grown it
  • and what his plans are for the future

It’s another cool success story in the online business world that I’m sure will inspire and motivate you all. Make sure you check it out here.

The Big Update Over At Systeme.io

Since I shared about Systeme.io a year ago, there has been a big change in the pricing tiers.

They now offer a completely FREE account here which includes 90% of their premium features and services.

It was already very reasonably priced at $27 per month for the entry-level tier, but now the free account makes it all the more worth trying out.

It includes:

  • Unlimited email sends for up to 1000 contacts
  • 3 sales funnels with up to 10 steps each
  • 1 blog with unlimited posts
  • 1 membership site with unlimited storage and members
  • The ability to run your own affiliate program


Plus a whole lot more like PayPal and Stripe integration and 24/7 support.

If you are in need of a new email or sales funnel platform, check out System.io for free and see if it’s the right fit for you.


Is The Type Of Device Traffic Important To You?

On Friday I asked the Niche Pursuit’s Facebook Group ‘How important is the type of device traffic to your site to you?’

Own The Yard gets 70% of its traffic from mobile, while for Niche Pursuits it’s the other way around.

We had a few good responses from the group, including Christopher who shared that while he mostly gets mobile traffic, it’s the desktop traffic that converts better - especially for higher-priced affiliate offers.

Heidi shared that that desktop ads pay more than mobile ads on her site, so she is trying to think of keywords that people are more likely to search for on desktop. Bobby replied that it was the same with his site, almost 9x the RPMs on desktop over mobile!

Does it matter what device the traffic comes from on your site? Join the Niche Pursuits FB group here if you haven’t already, and let us know.

Thanks again,

Spencer
