What is Affiliate Marketing? What does an online business looks like? How do I replace my existing income with an income online? Maybe you are thinking I don’t have any ideas. I don’t have any specialty or product. That is ok because that was me in late 2011.
These are questions that people are asking and I want to share with you and give you clarity so you know about why I love affiliate marketing and the reasons behind why I promote the products I do.
When you have a job you need to have skills and knowledge as you show on your CV. That is your product that you sell to people and you get your salary from your job. This is exactly the same for an online business. You need a product (it doesn’t matter if you don’t have one) as I will explain.
Let’s look at problems with other business models online…
Setting up an online shop like EBay and Amazon the problem with those types of businesses is you need to have stock. So your garage will be loaded with stock or you will have a warehouse full of stock.
With EBay you need to do your own fulfilment so if you don’t mind trekking back and forward to your post office and paying the cost for delivery……! So the problem with these two business you need stock, you need to deliver and fulfilment.
Now in Network Marketing you need to build a team the size of a small country. You need to have 3 way calls, 1-2-1 trainings with team members, hotel meetings and selling to your friends and family even cold calling. Yuck!! I did this for 5 years, created debt and it totally turns me off!
5 Reasons Why I Love Being An Affiliate! cont….
The model I use and have done for nearly 3 years now is affiliate marketing.
So what is affiliate marketing?
It is where you sell someone else’s product, a product where it has already been created. The owners have put their knowledge and skills into that product. More importantly a product that can be downloaded digitally. You don’t need to go to the Post Office to arrange delivery, It happens automatically.
As an affiliate marketer you get people to look at that product and you sell that product to them.
Really important I DON’T DO THE SELLING. I’ll explain about that in a another postl. When the product is sold you get paid a commission. Commissions range from 20%, 30%, 40%, 50% & some 100%! Crazy as it sounds!
So why is being an affiliate better than any other of the models I mentioned? Because you are unlimited in the number of products you sell online and all you are doing is attracting people to take a look at the product on your website. There is very little effort with that. There is no such thing as cold calling and you don’t have to speak to people if you don’t want to.
The key I want you to get is that running an online business is a transactional business. In a job you are selling your skills, your own education and knowledge in return for a salary. In the digital online world you sell other peoples digitally downloaded products for a commission.
The reason why I love it digitally downloaded products is it is a solution to a lifestyle business.
Reasons Why I Love Being An Affiliate!
1)You don’t need to worry about technical things like shopping carts or merchant accounts so that is all I will say on the subject.
2) You don’t need to worry about customer support as the product owner does all that for you.
3) You don’t need to worry about marketing materials as they are all provided for you. So this is why I love promoting digitally downloaded products.
4) You don’t need to worry about fulfilment as it is done automatically.
5) You don’t need to worry about limitations because you have a business without borders, 24-7-365 days a year!
So hopefully you can see with some clarity that having an online business that specializes in affiliate marketing and promoting digitally downloaded products is the real key to having a lifestyle business.
In a job you are selling your own knowledge. Online you are creating transactions where you are selling someone else’s knowledge.
Leverage other peoples knowledge rather than exchanging your own knowledge for money which is restricted by your time.
