I know theres a lot of you out there who have some pretty negative misconceptions about affiliate marketing. Cause I know I did before lol trust me.
But I hope this clears up a lot of the “myths” surrounding affiliate marketing. Because its actually a viable way to create an income wether thats online, with someone like Amazon.com, or offline with a company like Vemma.
Theres literally 100’s of affiliate marketing offers, even itunes has one.
Its simply a way for someone to start a business with a small investment and have the ability to reap large returns.
No where else in “traditional business” can you start a business for $25-$500 and create a $3000-$10,000 per month income with in a year (depending on the affiliate offer). Literally no where lol.
Lets just look at a traditional business like Mcdonalds…
You’d think because they’re on every single street corner (it seems) that the guys owning them are raking in the cash. But thats not exactly true.
It costs a few million dollars to actually start a Mcdonald’s franchise and you’ll spend about 3-5 years paying that back.
So that means you aren’t really going to be profitable for 3-5 years. And for the majority of time (in the beginning you’ll spend a lot of time “flipping burgers”, inside your restaurant to save money on the overhead. Sounds like a lot of fun huh? lol
Now with affiliate marketing its a little different. You can start being profitable almost immediately. I mean, when I started in my business I had my first $100 and $500 sale in my first week and then my first $1000 sale in my second week which was freakin awesome!
Now I’m not saying that EVERY single person will make that kind of money from affiliate marketing.
To be honest theres some people make no money.
Because theres a lot of products out there – Literally 1000’s. Now most of them are just garbage, but some actually do work really well… but the hard thing is that 99% of those are lacking something.
Community. People. Mentors.
People are the frame work of a business
But from my experience, its been the most successful when you get around the right PEOPLE who actually have results who are helping you.
And its not just 1 guy who had success 5 years ago lol. Its when average people, all across the board, are having success.
Thats the kind of company that you want to look at 🙂
I hope that helps clear things up!
