Today I'm gonna talk about how you can make a lot of money online from affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is where you promote someone else's product or service, you send traffic to their website, they do all the work, and they pay you a commission.
Now, there is nothing new in the concept. Right?! It's been around forever. Companies had been partnering with each other way before the Internet.
But the problem is that at the beginning of the Internet, almost anybody could promote anything, and lotta people did shady things. Such as spamming affiliate links in email, creating crappy affiliate sites, and of course the result is that big companies don't just let anybody promote them anymore.
So affiliate marketing has kind of a bad name today. And you are gonna see this when you start promoting something. Companies don't respect their affiliates the way they used to. They keep changing the rules, your links, and everything. So it's kind of a pain in the ass.
But, when you do it right, with the right partners, it's still worth it. It's very easy money, I've made a lotta money from affiliate marketing, but I would never build a business exclusively around affiliate marketing.
It's much better to run your own business, having your own products, your clients, and being the guy. You know.
I would say that affiliate marketing is a great way to make some extra cash within your business, but I wouldn't build a business just around affiliate marketing.
Now, the question is, what should you promote? Right?
The best advice I can give you is this: If you're using products and services that you love, and you believe in, then go ahead and promote those. I've always made more money promoting stuff that I personally used and loved, than promoting something just for a commission.
Sure, you could sign up for affiliate networks like CJ and ClickBank, they have thousands of products and services to promote, and you could choose what to promote based on numbers, or you could ask yourself this simple question: What kind of great products and services are you using?
You should promote those, because you are gonna make a lot more money that way, than promoting something just for a commission, because the best sales person of any product is always the satisfied user. Period.
You are gonna be more convincing, your calls to action are gonna be more compelling,
and you are gonna make more sales, and it's much more fun promoting stuff you love.
