This post will explain this question to you: What is online or affiliate marketing? I can tell you right away it is something you might want to learn, why? Because it is not rocket science, anyone can do it as long as you can read and watch instructions, and have access to an internet connection.
It is also an awesome way to create your own job and become financially free.
It can actually go relatively fast.
Not overnight but over time, many are able to quit their 9-5 job in a 1 year period of time (or less, me included).
What is Online or Affiliate Marketing?
You might have heard that people are making a lot of money online and you have probably wondered how they do. I was in the same shoes not very long back ago. Do not make the mistake of thinking that there is a secret super “click one button program” and you are rich.
I do absolutely not blame you if you do, because how could we know something before we know it, right?
First, what is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is not a quick way to get rich!
It is also NOT some kind of pyramid scheme or MLM!
It is something you, first of all, have to learn, then you can earn.
I have made a (more in depth) 5-minute quick guide on a post not long ago that you could look at if you want more details.
You can check it out here.
You Can Sell Anything Online!
Affiliate marketing is great for many reasons, one very obvious advantage is that you can sell ANYTHING you want online and you DO NOT own the things you sell!
That means, no shipping, no costs, no taking orders, none of that!
How it works?? Plain and simple:
- You build a website (very easy nowadays, you can have one up in minutes)
- You send traffic (people) to the site,
- You then recommend something for them on your site,
- They look at what you recommend (you send them to another site)
- They buy something and you get commissions (you make money)!
It also means that whatever interest you might have, you can make a full-time business (and income) from.
Here are just a few examples I can come up with
- ANY sport you like
- Video games
- Dating advice
- Mutual fund investing
- Trading (forex, stocks, futures, etc.)
- Any instrument
- Business coaching
- Health food
- Massage therapy
- Medicinal herbs
- Horse training (or any other animals)
- Fiction writing
- Brain science
Only the sky is the limit where you take that business!
It is one of the absolute best (and most profitable) ways to make money online and also the way most people start their online career.
So if you planning to make a living online I highly recommend you to start out learning affiliate marketing first, then you could move on to other online marketing methods.
Many times it leads to people start selling their own product/products.
Online marketing is affiliate marketing and many other marketing methods combined.
For example: video marketing, email marketing, social media marketing, etc.
It is The Best WAY (By Far) To Make Money Online (Or Offline)!
An online marketer (or internet marketer) knows all about affiliate marketing and I can tell you from the heart that when you have learned that skill you will start to see endless of possibilities to make money.
It will take time and effort to learn, but not more time than it takes to learn anything else worth knowing. Once you know it it will feel very easy and like you always have known it.
Close to zero investment needed!
It is by far the cheapest, fastest and easiest way to start your own business. This is well known by the ones who knows it. More and more people are open up their eyes to this and it is easy to see why.
Even if it is an opportunity that has been around for many years, it is the future.
Because more and more people are buying all kinds of stuff online for every year that goes. It is not something that will change in a near future. Every day there is well over 2 billion people online! This is (by far) the biggest market in the world.
Go ahead and learn this skill so you can have a piece of this billion dollar industry and secure your future.
