Why I Like Affiliate Marketing Through Article Marketing As An Online Business
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It’s been three years since I started dabbling in affiliate marketing but only took it seriously as a business in January 2011. It is a great “set it and forget it” model depending on which strategy you use. I mostly use article marketing. Here are reasons why I like this business;

Start Up Costs

Start up costs in affiliate marketing can be $0 to anything thousands of dollars. There are advantages and disadvantages but either way, you can start your business if you are serious with it.

An Abundance of Teachers

There are a lot of forums, ebooks which others have put up to help new comers in the business. However, to find complete courses that connect the dots is not easy to come by but they exist. Get a teacher, or teachers, and learn all you can. Apply them and you will learn a lot more of what you should do or not do.

You Don’t Have To Have Your Own Product

That is the beauty of affiliate marketing. You do not have to have your own product…yet. You start of selling other people’s products for nice commissions. Product creation, comparatively, has more start up costs compared to affiliate marketing through, say, article marking, blog marketing or forum marketing.

Market Research Is Relatively Easy

All your clients are online. What they do online is an open book for you to see. Plus there are effective and free tools for you to use to find out what people are looking for online. Market places are eager to show you what their visitors are buying and how often they are buying.

When you compare this to a brick and mortar type of business, you will realize that it is not as easy, or cheap to do market research.

You Can Utilize Your Strengths to Start

When it comes to article marketing, or blog marketing or forum marketing, you can choose the niches where you have interest or have your hobbies and start off from there so that you not struggle too much. For example, I am very interested in marriage relationships and this is something that I can write on for days on end. So I simply monetize my blog with affiliate products related to what I am writing about that is how the money comes in.

Whatever station you are in, you should consider affiliate marketing either using article marketing or blog marketing. It is very rewarding, although I must also say that you will need to work hard. Once the first dollar rolls in, you will be hooked to do more. That’s  a promise. So get started will you?


Street Talk

I've seen a lot about people who are desperate to find the right person and get them to commit. It is refreshing to see some about building a relationship and making it better. Working with one's strengths is a great way to get started- then finding a market that isn't over saturated, if the first market is.
