Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing

When I first started in affiliate marketing, I thought how hard can this be?  I thought it was as simple as passing out your affiliate link online or wherever and the money will come.  Well, like, sorry it’s not that simple.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s very much worth getting into, you just have to be willing to put in the work.  Let me ask You a question:  What is Your Why?  Think about it for a minute.  Your why consists of 3 parts:  What, How and You (Why).  What do you want, How are you going to get there and only You can do it.  Yes, you can literally make money while you sleep.  But, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a certain amount of work involved. 

Let’s get started…

What do you want?

This is your baseline or foundation.  What do you want to achieve or what do you want as an outcome to your efforts?  Do you want a supplemental income for some extra cash now and then to help pay off bills.  Save for that weekend getaway or dream vacation?  Or do you want something on a much larger scale?    Now if your big picture centers on the latter.  That you want something on a much bigger scale, don’t be afraid to start out small to get your feet wet first.  After you dive in to get a feel of Affiliate Marketing, or some other type of venture, then you’ll see how it fits you. 

How are you going to get there?

Now you have to decide how to achieve what you want.  If it’s Affiliate Marketing, then what company or companies are you going to be an affiliate of.  What steps are you going to take to arrive at what you want.  This includes what niche to concentrate your efforts.  While steps are important, you’ll want to set some goals too.  Here’s where you have to be careful.  You’ll want to avoid offers / programs with outrageous claims. Even if it is something other than Affiliate Marketing, nothing happens over night.  Do your homework, so you know what you are getting yourself into.  The more research you do, the more successful you’ll become. 

Only You can do it.

There’s no exaggeration with the saying “if you want something done right, do it yourself!”  No one else can do the work for you, you have to put forth the effort.  This is especially true in Affiliate Marketing.  You are the Affiliate, and you promote the product or program you are representing.  It doesn’t mean you won’t reap the benefit of word of mouth advertising.  Some products tend to sell themselves.  Now it can seem like a lot of work after a while.  But if you add automation to the mix, you’ll increase your chances of making money.  This involves creating either a blog or website.  Social Media only goes so far.  Instead of having people come to you, they go to your blog or website. 

Making sense of it all.

Now that you know that your Why is your foundation in bringing about your desired destination or reality.  It’s time to make sense of Affiliate Marketing.  It’s not all that hard.  It basically allows you to generate revenue from other peoples products.  As we put it “THERE’S NO EASIER OR FASTER METHOD OF GENERATING INCOME THAN AFFILIATE MARKETING.” As seen on our website. 

When a purchase is made through your affiliate link, regarding the product you are promoting, you’ll make a percentage from that sale.  That revenue goes directly to your bank account in accordance to how you set it up.  Sounds simple right?  It can be and we can help you get started.

There are 3 types of people associated with Affiliate Marketing.  They are #1, the company where your products come from, #2, You the Affiliate and #3, the consumer who buys the product through your link. 

You the Affiliate are the link between the company that provides the products and the customers who purchase them.
