This week the amazing Lewis Howes of LewisHowes.com is back for a third time to bring you the scoop on affiliate marketing. I’ve talked a lot about affiliate marketing on the show before, but Lewis is doing something a little different today. He’s covering affiliate programs from the product owner’s perspective.

Whether your next product launch is a few months or a few years away, Lewis has some top-notch advice for you. He’ll share his favorite strategies and tools for launching an affiliate program that will do incredible things for you and your product. He’ll also give a sneak peek at his latest book, The School of Greatness, which is something you’ll definitely want to check out. Let’s get to it!
