Getting into Affiliate Marketing - 5 Insights


It’s sad but it’s true: most of the people I know don’t like their jobs. In fact, I have a few friends who actually claim they hate their jobs. I’m proud to be an exception to the rule — I love what I do for a living. My primary business is affiliate marketing and I firmly believe 100% that it’s a great work option for anyone out there who wants to run their own online business. 

 

It’s taken me a couple of years to get to the point where I’m at now, but I’d estimate that I currently spend an average of five hours per week managing my affiliate marketing business. A lot of people who want to start their own business want to escape the rat race. The ability to make your own schedule is definitely a great perk, but there are also dozens of other advantages to running an online business in addition to flexibility. I’ve covered a few of the other advantages below. 

1. It’s Easy to Get Started with Modest Costs Involved

Most businesses require a lot of time to set up and a lot of start-up capital, but if you’re starting an online affiliate marketing business you don’t have to wait days or even weeks to get started. You could do it right now. I don’t recommend it, but you could start an online affiliate marketing business without spending a dime. All you have to do is install a free blog, choose an affiliate link and start promoting your offer! 

 

Instead, though, I suggest registering your own domain as opposed to using a free blog service like Blogger—it will only cost you a few bucks and your site will look a lot more professional. Potential customers will be willing to trust your opinion a little more if you it looks as if you didn’t toss your site together in five minutes (even though technically you could.) 

 

On the other hand, there are times when you’re going to spend money. Bringing in traffic to your affiliate landing page will take money unless you’re a very good expert of SEO, or search engine optimization, for the products’ landing pages. And that takes a lot of skill. This applies to the search engines of Google, Yahoo and Bing, and YouTube.  

 

There are also a number of excellent business in a box, turnkey programs that you pay a certain subscription price for that is usually lifetime. The entire affiliate program account is set up for you, and includes excellent mentoring or coaching from an experienced team, and features high value, high selling products. This is like a franchise and, as in any franchise, foot traffic is vital to the success of the business. ​


In some turnkey businesses, you are responsible for bringing in the traffic. In others, you can buy high quality traffic of people who are already pre-qualified as being buyers and interested in the products you’re offering.  



2. There’s Unlimited Income Potential

Online businesses like my affiliate marketing businesses are built on systems. After a bit of trial and error, you’ll be able to figure out what works for you and what doesn’t. Once you learn how to “work the system” and tweak things appropriately, you’ll realize what’s earning you money as opposed to what’s costing you money. 

 

Learn to work the system and your income can increase substantially. I can’t promise that you’ll make millions right off the bat, but online affiliate marketing businesses really do have unlimited income potential. It’s possible to earn to a steady income and have a nice life as a result. 



3. Online Businesses can Be Automated

Online businesses are great because they can be automated. As I mentioned above, I’ve reached the point that I don’t have to spend hours upon hours working every day. I recommend doing everything yourself in the beginning because you want to know how the process should work. After awhile, though, you can outsource the tasks you don’t like doing yourself. 

 

For example, some people do not enjoy the process of generating website traffic for their business, but that’s okay because it’s a process that can easily be outsourced. You can also hire writers to create web content such as e-zine articles and a virtual assistant could easily manage your Twitter, Facebook and other social media accounts. In fact, you could even hire someone to create videos for YouTube! 



4. You Can Work Anywhere in the World

As long as you have a computer and internet access, it doesn’t matter where you are—if you run an online business, you can work from anywhere in the world. Believe me, because I’m living proof. I just spent seven months traveling through Europe and my affiliate marketing business didn’t suffer a bit. If anything, it improved! 


4. You’re Building an Asset

Any business can be sold to another person. People purchase established stores and restaurants all the time. There’s no reason that an online business can’t be a turnkey operation, too. Once you have things in place, you can sell your business to someone else. 

 

Remind yourself that you’re doing much more than making things better for the time being. You’re building an asset that can be sold to someone else for a profit. By the way, if you ever get to the point that you decide to sell your asset, you can always start all over again with a new online business!

Hey!  I first started my affiliate marketing journey sometime in 2016 when I stumbled across dozens of the stereotypical "make money online" products.  At first, I ignored them because they had to be scams but, because I was hopeful and needed to make extra money from home, I finally decided to take a look...
