Affiliate Marketing – Make Money While You Sleep
Affiliate marketing is a way to earn uncapped commissions from the internet. You can basically promote other people’s things online via a unique tracking link called an affiliate link. If someone clicks on your affiliate link and goes on to purchase then you get paid a % of the sale.
I started affiliate marketing in around the year 2005 and I love it! I started making a full time living from it in 2008 after attending a live event (Highly recommend!). Here are some of the things that you can promote online as an affiliate:
- Anything that is sold on Amazon: You earn roughly 1-5% revenue share, depending on the item
- Digital products like eBooks and membership sites: You can earn a higher % on these
- Pretty much anything that is sold online and has an affiliate program
Who’s it for?
Anyone in the world with access to the internet
People who like the idea of earning a % commission by simply referring traffic to an offer and getting paid for that referral.
If you like the idea of working from anywhere in the world and getting paid % commissions while you sleep
Very low start-up costs compared to a franchise business
Can work from anywhere, anytime unlike traditional businesses on the high street
Uncapped earning potential
When promoting membership sites and monthly services you can get paid a % commission EVERY MONTH from just referring the customer once
You can earn passive income. Promote once and get paid for life.
You can just focus on sending visitors to offers
You don’t have to worry about things like customer support, updating your products, delivering the products, taking payments, coding shopping carts, etc. etc. etc
You can have more free time to spend how you like.
You can have more time freedom, location freedom and financial freedom.
There is lots of bad advice out there on the internet. Just follow the advice on this website from my 10+ years experience and you will save a lot of time, money and pain! My advice is to start making money from matched betting and then come to a live event. Don’t waste time trying to only learn affiliate marketing online. I spent 3 years from 2005-2008 trying it this way and in October 2008 I went to a live event and made more in the following 4 months than the previous 3 years. This was largely thanks to meeting real people who were making real money from affiliate marketing.
Like anything, it takes time to learn a new skill. The best advice is to come to live events to learn and meet real people who are living this lifestyle.
You need to have a plan to fill your free time once your passive income grows large enough that you don’t have to worry about working anymore 😉
Trying to explain to people at social events (Especially weddings) what you do for a living can be frustrating.
