When I began affiliate marketing I knew only half of these things but, in hindsight, if I had have known these things then it would have made the decisions I made so much easier. Such is the intention of this article, to contribute towards the success of affiliate marketing newcomers. Here are 8 reasons to be an affiliate marketer.
In fact the only reason I wrote 8, is because there isn't enough space to write the 100 that there really are. I hope you find them informative and helpful.
1. No product to produce.
Often creators of products (usually info) pay large fees to make or have their products made. With affiliate marketing forget about it.
2. No products to deliver.
If your promoting information products it's a download page or if your selling physical product its shipping, handling and distribution. With Affiliate marketing you needn't worry
3. Copy the same method.
Once you discover a method of affiliate marketing that works you can reproduce it for any product. Then continue to do it until you have more money than you know what to do with.
4. High income potential.
The amount of money you make increases in proportion to the amount of time you put into your site. Once you have developed a format that you know converts your visitors to customers, all that you need to do is get as much traffic to the site as humanly possible. You can get into search engine optimisation or simply work on your Pay Per Click strategies, but either way the harder you work the more you get paid.
5. Make passive income.
The king of them all: Money while you sleep. There's nothing like waking up in the morning, checking your clickbank account and finding sums of money that have accumulated while you've been lost in peaceful dreams. Enough said!
6. No customers to deal with.
Forget complaints, nasty people, changes in customer preference, forget it all. The merchant takes the responsibility and changes their site accordingly.
7. Low start up costs.
The only cost in setting up an affiliate website is that of registering your domain and host, then getting some traffic through. If you're making your own products the costs can be significantly higher in amount and number.
8. No payment processing.
Forget refunds, taking details, names, addresses, emails, credit card numbers. Your merchant handles it all. All you do is sit back while the money gets put into your account. That simple!
