Why Use Affiliate Marketing  -  15 Reasons

If you’re thinking of starting online one of the best methods is Affiliate Marketing. Before I go on about the advantages of Affiliate Marketing let’s get one thing perfectly clear.

A REAL business no matter what it is, will take time, you’re not going to get rich over night online, and I don’t care who tells you and what they promise. The people getting rich over night are the con-artists selling you that false dream.

As soon as you understand that it will take time and hard work to build a real full time income online you’re half way there.

Ok mini rant over –

Now you can work hard or you can work smart, personally I prefer to work smart.

Most people (beginners) do not have a product to sell, nor do they have resources to create one. But why would you? There are so many products and services you can promote that are already developed.

In a nut shell all affiliate marketing is promoting other peoples products and services for a commission of the sale.

Here is my list of reasons why Affiliate Marketing is the best option for making a full time income online.

1) It costs you nothing to join an affiliate program.

2) There is no cost in development. All of your products and services you promote have already been developed.

3) You can sell anything. Think about it - what is not sold online nowadays? There are thousands and thousands of affiliates selling everything you can imagine.

4) You can be an affiliate marketer anywhere in the world. As long as you have a computer and an internet connection you’re in business.

5) You don’t need a merchant account. The order process is taken care of by the merchant; all you do is cash the checks.

6) No shipping, the merchant does all that.

7) No customers service issues. The merchant handles all of that.

8) No return headaches. If a customer has a return the merchant takes care of it.

9) Your market place it the entire world.

10) You make money 24/7. The internet does not turn off; you can make money while you sleep.

11) You do not need any sales experience. Most if not all affiliate marketers have no sales experience when they started. But that’s no problem. Any good affiliate program provides you with all the tools you need to be successful.

12) This is the best work at home opportunity available. Working from home is the dream of many people.

13) Your risk is very low. If you’re promoting a product or service that’s not making you a profit, simply get rid of it and promote something else.

14) You income has no ceiling. You’re only limited by your desire and determination. There are many affiliates earning six figure monthly incomes.

15) Its just plain fun being an affiliate marketer. If you’re going to do something online shouldn’t you be having fun?

Ok, so you’re sold on affiliate marketing, so where do you start?

I recommend you go to Commission Junction, Linkshare or Clickbank. You’ll find everything you need to start a fun and profitable affiliate business. Just be sure to do your due diligence before joining any affiliate program.

I believe in you
