There’s a lot of benefits to it. Number one, it’s very low cost to start. You know, most companies you can get started for under $500 or less. Some are even under $100. So that’s a benefit right there. You don’t typically have to have a lot of inventory that you handle, and you basically just find customers, and most companies have a way for you to go out and find customers. So, the number three way that you can start a home-based business is through affiliate marketing, and, affiliate marketing is a great way to earn an income, especially on the internet. The idea of affiliate marketing is that you find an affiliate program. For instance, let me give you an example, Amazon.com. They have an affiliate program, and so what happens is is they have all, millions of different products. You can drive traffic to those products through a special link that Amazon gives you, and they will pay you a commission when somebody purchases a product through your link.
That’s the main idea of affiliate marketing. Where there are literally hundreds and thousands of different affiliate programs all over the internet, that help you to earn money or earn a commission. The main thing with affiliate marketing is just learning some of the marketing methods to be able to do that. It’s really not that difficult, but affiliate marketing is an amazing way to generate an income, and it’s, you know, I’ve been doing this online for about seven years, been in the industry for about 15, been doing it online for about seven, and I do this full time. I absolutely love it, but affiliate marketing has been an amazing, amazing way to build an online income, so here is one of the issues with all the three ideas that I gave you. All three are very viable and a great thing to do. Creating your own product is awesome. Doing a network marketing company is awesome, and then doing affiliate marketing is awesome.
The biggest problem with most of these is that in order to be successful with them, you have to learn how to market. You’ve got to learn to drive traffic to offers, and this is not something that a lot of people understand, and it takes training, it takes understanding it. You need tools, you need all kinds of stuff that will help you to understand what it is that you are looking for. The best way I have found is to tap into an existing platform or something that trains you and helps you to market pretty much any offer that you choose. If you want to do your own product, you can do that. If you want to be involved in a network marketing company, it’ll help you generate leads for that. If you want to do affiliate marketing, it’ll help you learn how to drive traffic to affiliate offers, and I have, again, been online for many years. I’ve earned multiple, multiple six-figures in commissions, every year and I absolutely love it.
