Affiliate Marketing – The easiest residual income possible.
Earn HIGH commissions from other peoples products
Get targeted traffic – Get Clicks – Get Paid
OK, so they still have to buy the product, but enough targeted traffic is all you need to earn great money.
Affiliate marketing can earn you money from almost any platform
You can post clickable images on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and more and start to earn money.
You can run ads or promotions on classified sites like eBay and more and earn money.
You can fun paid ads that link directly to the vendor, and make money.
You can set up free blogs and promote from there.
You can even have ranking properties on places like Google Docs and Google sites – and still, keep on making money.
Naturally, the best way is to combine them all, own a self-hosted website, run youtube videos and more and make a comfortable living online.
Let us get started, shall we?
Description – You promote other people’s products or services for a referring commission – sometimes as high as 100%. You build the website or online properties just as a catchment system to get interested people to then be able to refer them on to the affiliate program. Sort of like a commission only job – without the overheads
Affiliate marketing is perhaps the easiest and safest business model to pursue as a business online.
The reason I say this is that you get to choose from thousands of different niches, you get to follow some very easy to do steps when building your business and best of all your income is residual.
That means that you can earn money from anywhere in the world – as long as you have a laptop/computer and an internet connection.
You never need to deal with customers.
Once you have built a website and it is earning you can put it into a maintenance section and build another and another.
If you built just two sites at a time (each site takes between two and six months to build), and each only earns you an average of $500 a month, then at the end of a year your income will be $2000 a month. That would be if they were all averaging only $500 each, but what if they were at $1000 each or $2000 each?
$5 000 per month is great money in anyone’s world, and remember that all this is residual, all you need to do to those websites is to add about 4 pages a month and do a bit of new backlinking.
If you worked full time for two years you could literally retire forever as long as you maintain those websites.
OK, so the few lines above this were written about 5 years ago. These days you should build one big site at a time and get it to $10 000 a month – this will take a year if you are efficient, and then do it again and again. Things have become more competitive, but it is still not impossible if you get the best training (see the links at the bottom of this page)
That works out at half the cost of buying a normal business/franchise.
If you did all the work yourself it would cost you as little as the price of the domains and a single hosting package.
What sorts of affiliate sites are popular?
You will find an affiliate program for almost every single type of product out there.
Go look at (and join them for that matter) these websites…
Go through the marketplace in those two sites and see how many thousands of types of affiliate products are on offer.
But if you want to see how easy it is to find an affiliate program try this …
Search Google for your favourite “thing” and add affiliate program to the search
Like this “scrapbooking affiliate program”
I did it and saw a bunch of options that might be worth looking into.
Something you definitely NEED to know
There are many different types of buyers.
A potential buyer looking up something like “learn how to do charcoal drawings” is far less likely to buy what they find that very instant than a buyer who is looking up “how to cure bad breath” two days before a big new date.
A well-respected marketer used to teach us that those buyers are ones with their hair on fire.
He correctly pointed out that someone with their hair on fire would think about that problem every second of the day – until they found a solution.
Do you need a website?
With affiliate marketing, there are still a lot of different ways of marketing those products including social media sites like FaceBook, YouTube, Pinterest and a lot more.
But the correct answer is yes you do need a website. You could pay for your traffic or set up a great organic search site and then still turn that site into an authority website.
Alternatively, you could build smaller 25-page sites that are all targeting an extremely focused area or type of buyer, and build up a dozen mini sites. (Um, this doesn’t really work anymore – I wrote that line 4 years ago. now you need at least 75 to 100 pages)
Please understand that this section is all about the types of opportunities or money making methods online and that with all of these methods where you will be needing a website you will still have to follow a set method of building your website, your SEO stuff, your backlinking structures etc.
That is all covered in the links at the end of this report.
I offer big bonuses for those who use my affiliate links to get their hosting. (See? Affiliate Marketing)
Do you need any skills at all?
The truth is – not really, as you will research your subject properly each time you plan to add a page or a post.
Plus the longer you work on your website the more likely you are to become one of the leading specialists on that subject or niche.
Finally, if you are already an expert in the niche it will be a very big help as you will be able to simply write straight out of your head as you go along.
I am doing that right now. How am I doing?
Do you need complicated skills?
Initially it seems to everyone that building the website and doing research for your niche, your keywords, your buyers and your products is hard, but in fact, it is all very simple, albeit new.
New is just that, as soon as you are shown how to do something, and then you do it a few times it becomes really easy.
This is like that.
Is it hard to write out a word doc?
Then to turn it into a PDF?
Then to email that to someone?
Well, this business is about that hard.
Learning how to drive was harder.
Do you need to spend money?
Yup, huge money with me
Just joking, like everything online you can do it for dirt cheap if you have to.
The real cost here is time vs money. The longer you take to do it the free way by yourself, the longer it takes you to make money at the other end.
So it can be foolish “economy” as you could take a year to learn how to do a website set up correctly and then only start to earn money, or you could pay others to build the site for you faster and earn within a few weeks.
You should not need to pay more than $3000 for a complete affiliate site to be built for you, and you could have a site set up from marketers like myself for as little as $1000 with training, research etc all built in.
You will always have the cost of your domains and the hosting.
Do you need to have detailed knowledge of that subject?
See the skills question earlier, but basically, you will learn as you go along. Most of the time you will have chosen a niche that you are interested in and probably have some knowledge about that subject already.
How much can there be to learn about constipation? (Very profitable niche)
How much income potential does this niche/method have?
Smaller affiliate niches can have a regular monthly potential of as little as $500 a month but others can easily get you more than $10000 a month.
A very varied choice of products and services are available online and almost all of them have affiliate programs.
Very distracting to someone like me who researches for clients all the time and then see some really great niches just sitting there wide open
How fast would I likely start to earn money?
Depending on how you set up your marketing machine, and how fast you do that you could begin to earn money within a week, but normally it takes about two months or more depending almost entirely upon your speed of “building” the site.
You would also need to remember that you will be constantly adding new websites or online properties or just growing the first one, and that will double your income every six months or so.
If you paid for traffic you could start to earn money within days of finishing your sales funnel set up.
Would I need one or many websites?
Your choice on this issue
Personally, I would caution you to learn and start slowly.
At one stage I had over 200 online properties (websites – subdomain, add-on domains, folder domains etc) and was totally unable to cope with them all.
I suggest that you do not do more than 4 at a time – and four will keep you busy all day every day if you are doing it right.
Two sites would be better.
So What Now?
Read – Learn – Click
This website is not a glorified sales page.
You are supposed to learn, read, follow links, get advice and slowly find your feet.
Once you get the hang of my laid-back style and see how I am helping you, you could skip to the blog section and see what is new, what has changed, what I suggest and follow the ever-changing pulse of online marketing.
Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee, or get a beer, ad some snacks, and then settle down and start to educate yourself right here – pretty much for free.
I do not need to push you to start your business, or your part-time thing – YOU need to do that yourself.
I will simply explain it all to you, and leave the rest up to you.
The best of luck!
