Affiliate Marketing Benefits
So exactly what kind of benefits are there to affiliate marketing? After all, it takes a couple of years before you begin to see an ROI to some this is a long time.
However, after that couple of years of putting in work with no results, things start to happen. But because of human nature, we are programmed from birth to want instant gratification for things we do.
Because affiliate marketing is done with a website on the internet people think that it is a get-rich-quick method of making money. Scammers have made it sound this way with all their hyped up videos and sales pages selling scam products.
Wondering why there are any benefits to affiliate marketing if it takes that long to begin to see an ROI? The best reason I can possibly think of is a PASSIVE INCOME STREAM!
Yes, you are reading that correctly. Affiliate marketing can provide you a passive income stream for years to come. Instead of doing the same work over and over again like you would in a JOB. You will write articles only once then update as them needed.
After your website has gained authority then working on adding more content does not take near as long it just comes naturally with a consistent process.
Diversification into other areas with all the skills you can gain with the training provided is another way of earning an extra income each month without putting in hours upon hours of work.
True affiliate marketing is not going to be for everyone under the sun. After all, what would our world be like if it were? We need doctors, lawyers, trash men, contractors, people working in all these fields or our world would cease as we know it.
Only 1% of people who start working online doing affiliate marketing ever make it. The other 99% either find it is not for them or become discouraged and quit prior to seeing any results.
Are you one of the 1% who wants to work online doing affiliate marketing willing to dedicate 2 to 3 hours a day learning and applying what you are learning?

Taking the time to read the rest of my article will give you even more benefits of doing affiliate marketing. An established website earns a sizable income per month after a couple of years depending on your niche.
How to Use Affiliate Marketing
Considering you landed on this article I am pretty sure you understand what affiliate marketing is all about. Just in case I have a few who found it by accident the short version is you use a website to promote products and services for others.
When a visitor lands on your website clicks the link to a product or service promoted and purchases it from your link then you are paid a commission from the company that you are promoting these for.
Depending on the type of products or services these could be a single payment commission at a set dollar amount per item or a percentage of the sale from 1% to 75%.
Other commissions are recurring for things like subscriptions and will be paid month after month until the client would cancel the subscription.
All companies and major corporations today have seen the benefits of doing affiliate marketing for people who own websites. Getting their products and services in front of an even wider audience through affiliate marketing increases their profits.
Thanks to the internet more people are able to take advantage of affiliate marketing instead of the old method of door to door salespeople.
Remember things like the Avon Lady, Fuller Brush Man, even the Life Insurance Companies had salespeople who went door to door.
Exactly how do affiliate marketers promote these products and service then? By writing reviews about them they could be good reviews or bad reviews depending on the authors own opinions.
People looking for products and services usually go to the internet prior to making purchases looking for reviews. I know that I do and so do more than 85% of all consumers.
The rest ask for opinions from friends and family who in turn usually use the internet to look for reviews for them. Even when looking for a place to grab a snack or going to a movie people use the internet.
With over 4 Billion users on the internet growing daily doing affiliate marketing is just one way of working online to make a great passive income now and well into the future.
Tools for Affiliate Marketing
What type of tools are you going to need in order to get started in affiliate marketing? Some people have used their smartphone to try to do affiliate marketing but I highly recommend a computer or laptop and a good internet connection.
Training for affiliate marketing is a must if you do not have any prior experience in this field. Learning from experts will get you to where you want to be in a shorter period of time.
Although it might sound very involved and complicated it is a basic process and once you know the process then all you need to do is lather, rinse, and repeat.
Is your first website going to be a big hit? Maybe and maybe not, that is going to depend on YOU. Failure is one thing you need to be able to accept, but never quit and you will reach success.
As a child, I am sure your mother would tell you practice makes perfect. The same applies with affiliate marketing I hear all the same excuses from people of why they cannot do affiliate marketing.
Guess what I even used a few myself when I first began. Having to pick the one I hear the most would be I am not a writer. I cannot write content for a website. Wrong do you text and talk to people? Then you can write.
Writing is nothing more than communicating with someone by typing words on a computer/laptop screen. Being fancy about it or using complicated wording really is not necessary. Make it so people can understand is all you need to do.
You are going to need to figure out what “Niche” your website is going to be about. Right, what is a “Niche”? That is only a topic that you have an interest in, it does not really even need to be something you know a lot about.
Selecting a “Niche” is where everyone wastes so much time trying to decide. Your “Niche” needs to be something that you can talk about forever never getting bored with it.
Some people worry about how they are going to monetize a website making money. There are over 50 ways to monetize a website so never fear you can earn from any “Niche” you select.
A must have is a “Keyword Research Tool”. Wondering what this is? When people search the internet every second of the day and night the major search engines record the exact words they are using to find results.
By knowing what those words are and using them to write content for your website is vital for the search engines to find your content and rank it on the pages. Ranking is at what position on a page your article lands not the whole website.
Ideally, you would want all your articles to be on the first page and in the first spot, but that is not being realistic. Getting just one to that position in rank takes time. There are many factors that come into play for ranking, not just “keywords”.
Training in SEO another essential part of affiliate marketing to rank your content. Knowing how to use proper SEO is the thing because there is “White Hat” and “Black Hat” when it comes to doing SEO for a website.
“White Hat” methods are the correct way of doing SEO for on-page and off-page. “Black Hat” uses some underhanded tricks to rank your website faster, but in the end can get your website taken down and blocked.
There are website owners out there that do not care about following the rules and use the “Black Hat” methods trying to haul in an ROI quickly but it never lasts.
Having the choice of earning income for years from my website or only a couple of months then getting shut down I will take the years every time.
Of course, you are going to need a website and hosting on the internet for your online business. We all know that many of the hosting companies out there will offer you free or highly discounted websites and hosting for a limited time.
I would like to suggest not falling for these cheap start-ups they are only going to end up costing you in the end. Much more than what you will be paying with the upgrade to the training I will be sending you to in the next section.
As a matter of fact, the training I will be sending you to is going to provide you with all these tools and then more. Best of all, you are going to be able to get started for 100% Free No Credit Card Required and no obligation to upgrade ever!

As you are deciding on your “Niche” another thing to keep in mind is the domain name and title for your website. Selecting “On a free domain” from above will prompt you to select both the domain name and title for your website.
Please note, a domain name once selected cannot be changed and you will need to select another using your second free website. A website title can be changed later if you are not happy with it.
Using a keyword in the domain name and title is a good idea with “Niche” selection letting your audience and the search engines know what your website is all about.
