For many, affiliate marketing is a mystery and find it hard to envision what affiliate marketing really is.  First, I’ll go over the different ideas in how one could have an affiliate marketing business at home.  Then I’ll go over how you can envision your business.  The overall focus of this article is for the beginner.

Stay At Home.

Aside from the concept of blogging, there are different types of stay at home businesses.  There’s anything from the plain old Telecommuting from the job you have to an actual homebased business.  The easiest form is the Telecommuting with your job as your equipment is usually provided by your employer.

Take it from me, working from home is a very attractive option if you can make it happen.  For some there are too many distractions that can keep one focused on the business at hand and you would have to be very disciplined to be able to accommodate working from home.  If you are taking on a home based business, then you would really have to be focused on what you are doing and ignore all the distractions that can come up while working from home as your bottom dollar depends on you.

Envisioning your business.

On the other side of the fence is affiliate marketing, which is a homebased business.  If you’ve never done affiliate marketing before it can be hard to “envision it”. 

Here’s how to envision it:

Place of business:

Instead of renting a place or building a place to operate your business, you are conducting your business from your home.  This is huge savings to your bottom line.  Your actual real estate is a website that you would create with a host online. 

Day To Day Ops:

You would take up “blogging” and write posts to your blog about the niche you have chosen to promote.  You would also promote your blog on a daily basis to draw attention to what you are selling.  Visitors to your site would “opt in” to your newsletter and thus be your private audience that you alone have control over.  They would have access to specials and other content that the rest of the audience doesn’t have.  Your audience, private or otherwise would take advantage of any of the products and services you are offering thus generating sales from your blog or website.  This was just a summary, but you should get a general idea. 

Skills needed:

Well, you already have most of the skills you need for this business and they are:

  1.  Typing
  2.  Able to navigate the Internet
  3.  Make use of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc)

The above are the bare minimum skills needed to work with affiliate marketing.  There are others that you need and can develop as you go.  The more you know the better you’ll be able to function with affiliate marketing. 

Getting Started.

You’ll want to create a blog for your online business and you can learn about this by checking out our post – How To Create A Blog For Affiliate Marketing.  This will go over what is needed for your blog. 

If you are new and just starting, then I recommend that you check out the following post – Starting An Affiliate Marketing Business.

Income Ceiling.

There’s a word that applies to the topic of Income Ceiling, that word is “removed”.  The potential income of an affiliate marketer falls under the category of “the sky’s the limit”.  You go from being paid an hourly wage or a salary to being paid by the companies you promote which can get lucrative after a while.  It takes work and it takes time, but the end result is worth it.  In the beginning, it may seem like it’s never going to happen, but with perseverance, and dedication, it will come.  When you start a job, you have to start somewhere, and that is no different with affiliate marketing.  Everyone has a beginning in affiliate marketing.  The only difference is the knowledge you have starting out.  You have access to a great amount of information and support to get you there.  When you dive into affiliate marketing, the excitement you experience is all yours and no one can take it from you!

The Difference.

Unlike other types of homebased business opportunities, you get a lot of support with affiliate marketing.  Plenty of free trainings available to get you performing to generate sales.  If you would start your own non-affiliate marketing business, then you may have to learn the ropes without much support if any.  Both and Affilorama are here 24 hours a day to assist you with your needs.

Moving forward.
