I am a firm believer most entrepreneurs should engage in selling affiliate products, unless perhaps you are already making 6 to 7 figures. I have been involved in affiliate marketing for the last 6 months because I realized how lucrative it can be. I decided to focus my own business in that direction. The reasons are simple. Here are just 8 of them. . .
1) Affiliate marketing is truely downright cheap. No huge startup costs and can be done easily on a shoestring budget.
2) You have the ability to literally create cash on demand, whenever you need it. Pay off bills or meet unexpected expenses. Have the ablility to funnel extra cash flow into your primary business to build it faster. Increase your advertising budget, purchase needed office equipment, etc.
3) Affiliate products are easy to promote. All you need is an affiliate link.
4) Information products are in high demand. The market is endless and growing each day.
5) InfoProducts are digital and instantly downloadable to the customer and the commissions are credited to your account immediately.
6) Commissions can be as high as 75%. Info-product marketplaces, like ClickBank pays out a 50% to 75% commission.
7) You don't need to create your own products, deal with customer support, handle credit card orders, etc.
8) Did I mention it's quick and easy to get started right away? You can earn your first affiliate commissions in a little as 24 hours.
Of course affiliate marketing has it's ins and outs. But with a little training from super affiliates, a willing to take action, the possibilities are endless what you can earn without much experience, whatsoever.
I totally recommend anyone starting out and building their MLM business, consulting business, whatever business opportunity you're in, strongly consider affiliate marketing to create extra income streams. The benefits are well worth it and may just save your butt whenever you get into a financial jam.
