All signed up? Great! Now before you dive too far into that awesome e-course, let’s cover the basics and go over how affiliate marketing works.
As you can see from the diagram above, the actual business model for an affiliate marketer is rather simple. It works like this…
- You find a great product or service that offers an affiliate program.
- You send potential customers to the website of that product or service using a special tracking link.
- If that potential customer ends up making a purchase, you receive a percentage commission on the sale!
While the business model is simple, new affiliate marketers quickly find out that sending ready-to-buy visitors to the website of a product or service you are promoting is actually pretty tough!
Sure, some people get lucky and find a way to use paid advertising and still net a profit. But most new affiliate marketers find that after their paid advertising expenses, they never profit a dime. Actually, paid advertising such as using Google Adwords can quickly run your bank account dry
How Do Successful Affiliate Marketers Advertise?
Since paid advertising is so risky, most successful affiliate marketers learn the incredibly valuable skill of learning how to advertise for FREE. Now, in order to gain free exposure, you must provide people something of value.
Yeah, I know. You’ve seen some “guru’s” talk about “secret” and “under ground” automated software that will help send 10’s of thousands of customers to affiliate partner websites ever 4 seconds and there’s absolutely nothing you have to do.
….Oh how I wish that was true!
As someone who actually earns a full-time 6 figure income through affiliate marketing, I’m here to tell you that this will take a little bit of time. I know, I know – nobody wants to hear that, but here me out.
Why Working For FREE Is The Way To Quit Your Day Job
Imagine you were interviewing for a job. A dream job. One where you could work your own hours, from anywhere with an internet connection, and you’d never have to sit in any meetings or put up with office gossip. The catch? You have to work for free for 6 months.
Now why would you EVER agree to that deal?
Because after 6 months, you will get paid for your work not just once, but over and over again for YEARS. From there, you just replicate the process as many times as you want and you can grow your income exponentially.
You can vacation whenever you want and you’ll still receive 100% pay. You never have to wake up to an alarm clock and in fact, you make money while you sleep.
No commutes to work, you can be with your kids or your pets all day long, and you can choose to go grocery shopping on a monday afternoon if you want in order to avoid the crowds.
Total freedom and money being pumped into your bank account 24/7/365.
It’s almost literally like building a machine that prints money for you all the time. At that point, all you’ll be focused on is the rate and speed at which the money prints!
That’s the reality I live in, you guys. It really is possible. But you can’t expect it overnight. It takes time. Give it 6 months of your BEST EFFORT and I just about guarantee that by then, you will at the very least be earning a nice residual side income for you and your family. Once you start seeing REAL money coming in, you’ll be hooked and it’s only a matter of time before you quit your day job. I quit mine in under a year.
