I once came in contact with an article with the heading “earn in your comfort zone” but for someone like me who did not believe in things like that, I have always found that saying which goes “good things do not come easy” so I did not bother to read the article. I had a job that was paying but then I had a lot of responsibility too. I was earning way below what I needed, and just thought I needed to do something fast. My first child was getting into high school, and if care was not taken, I might not be up to the task.
I met a friend who I knew was doing pretty well and she told me “there are simple jobs anybody can do online and still make a lot of money at his/her spare time. These jobs are good for students, mothers, fathers and housewives” at first I felt like oh! Here they come again. Though it took me so long to succumb and now I am an affiliate marketer.
I stand tall to say that; if you are not currently doing affiliate marketing, then you are missing a trick.
“After I had started affiliate marketing, it was like the doors of income were opened unto me. Affiliate marketing is one of the most efficient means of generating “a full-time” income through the Internet so you can imagine someone like me with a job already earning my residual income on top of salary which I can proudly say is supportive.”
Now I don’t have to think of my children’s tuition because I can now afford to get my second child into high school without worry. I earn substantially from affiliate marketing and I don’t have to worry about having to account to anyone. It’s that comfortable. It has opened a new gate of hope for financial stability and independence for me.
At first, it was almost inconvenient because I worked Monday to Saturday. Later on, I found out how to personalize my schedule and here today I am doing so well thanks to affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is among the fastest and simplest methods of getting started earning profits from the comfort of your very own home.
You don’t have to do research, improvement, customer support, product delivery, or other things that you need to do since these are carried out through the product vendor. You, being an affiliate marketer simply should market their products. Along with it, in most instances, the vendor may even supply marketing resources and helpful information for you.
Residual income is simply getting paid every month, due to your recommendations spending a continuing monthly charge of some type. This is as a regular membership in which they will pay an established payment every month to keep a member. Becoming the one that referred these people, you will be paid off with a continuing commission, arranged as an amount of the monthly fee.
With affiliate marketing, you are given products to sell from the affiliate merchant. This is awesome because most of us do not have our products to promote on the Internet. Also, you are provided with an affiliate website to promote the products on it where a customer can purchase them from you. You earn a commission for every sale you make. It’s quite a sweet deal if you think of it.
On your part what you will have to do is have to determine how much time and money, plus the effort you will need to put into your business. I suggest you put together a plan and set your goals, even your monthly income targets.
Once you determine your plan, you will be able to stay focused and on track. Something else you must consider is your technical skills, like can you build a website or do you know how to set up an auto responder, what about managing online payments.
The best way to build an affiliate business is to promote products that pay you month after month for if your referral remains their customer. One way to do this is by encouraging membership sites or subscriptions associated with your “group” or niche. It takes just as much effort, I believe, to promote a monthly membership or subscription as it does to promote an eBook or a product that requires a one-time purchase.
Affiliate marketing offers excellent benefits for both the merchants and we,as marketers, making it one of the most lucrative businesses in Internet Marketing. Many affiliate retailers can provide an affiliate program to just about anyone who has an online business. As for me, I started off with Pay-Per-Click and I got paid for each visitor that clicks from my site to that of the merchant’s. As an affiliate, I got paid regardless of whether or not a sale is made. The fee paid for each click is typically nominal and generally does not exceed one dollar. After months of working pay-per-click, I moved on to Pay-Per-Sale and due to the fact that I had made my online presence, I earned the trust of so many visitors and once they visit my site, they are redirected to the merchant’s site and a purchase is made in most cases. This way I make my earning based on the specific agreement between the merchant and me. However, fees from Pay-Per-Sale are always much higher than the pay-per-click fee I started with. Now, I earn a commission on each sale, which typically ranges from 15% to 20% of the total cost of the goods or services purchased by the customer.
Many people become affiliates when these programs look both interesting and attractive especially if the merchants offer good commission or residual income.So, are you looking for another way to earn income or thinking about quitting your nine to five desk jobs?
Affiliate marketing may be the best option to try. It will not make you a millionaire overnight or even earn you millions, but it is a good start to earn extra income without having too much time spent on it.
