Affiliate Marketing is NOT dead because Walmart is still in business!
Selling someone elses product that people are ready to buy is Affiliate Marketing! When newbies venture out and "try" affiliate marketing, they completely miss the boat and never get how to make money through affiliate marketing.
It's actually a lot of fun selling stuff! Because you then become more concerned about the customer being happy rather than earning a paycheck! And when you are focused on helping other people, now you are getting heavily into "Attraction Marketing".
