Affiliate marketing is an “evergreen” way of making money online. Internet marketing strategies and ‘fads’ come and go, but affiliate marketing remains eternally popular and for good reason…. there’s good money to be made as an affiliate if you know what you’re doing – and it’s relatively easy to get started.
Since you’re reading this report I’ll assume that you know what affiliate marketing is. If you don’t then it’s extremely simple – you promote other people’s products using your unique affiliate link (they can be digital or physical products or service) and then you get paid a commission whenever somebody you’ve referred purchases something.
The great thing about affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to worry about things such as product creation or buying in products. There doesn’t have to be an investment when you become an affiliate marketer – you simply sign up to get your affiliate link from the product vendor and away you go. You might choose to invest money in promoting your links of course but that’s totally optional.
Affiliate marketing works because it solves two key problems in one go:
- Product vendors always need more customers and thus they use affiliates to help them find them – for free.
- People who don’t have products of their own to sell can promote products as an affiliate and they instantly have something to sell with very little effort.
Of course the reality is that most affiliates are also product vendors and vice versa. Any successful marketer will both have their own products AND promote other people’s as an affiliate. But if you’re just getting started you can start off by being an affiliate-only and then move into creating and selling your own products as you build up experience.
