Affiliate marketing is essentially selling other people's products. I think affiliate marketing is an excellent career choice because it's fairly easy to learn. Now don't misunderstand me here – affiliate marketing is NOT easy to succeed at – BUT... The knowledge you need to have is fairly easy to gain, compared with most other career choices. The easy part is that you WILL succeed if you take continous ACTION. This is a very simple concept, but MAN is it true!
"Why should you consider affiliate marketing as a new career choice?"
- There is very good money in it if you succeed
- The necessary knowledge you need is quite easily gained
- You are FREE! No boss. Work when, where and as much as you want to
- Most people that really puts in the work achieve success within their first year of learning. Consider the alternative of spending 5 years studying something "normal" and get less income!
- Work with the things you love. Do marketing in the area of your interest
As a new career at 40, affiliate marketing has the potential to be a very lucrative business.

Once you get good at driving traffic, you can build your income to massive heights. Let us say you do some work, and this particular work earns you $1 each day on average – it will probably earn you $1 each day for several years! Imagine if you got lucky with some great work, and it's giving you $20 a day. In one year, this one piece of work would earn you $7,300! Even a single 400 word article has the potential to earn you thousands of dollars if you know how. Do you see how affiliate marketing can be extremely lucrative? That's why hard working affiliate marketers earn six digit numbers month after month!

There are a few very common reasons why people do not make it as affiliate marketers:
- They are not prepared to put in the work

These are the things that probably happens to everyone who does not succeed at affiliate marketing, and they are the reasons why only a small percent of those who start out with affiliate marketing achieve success.
