Why Affiliate Marketing Crushes Offline Business Models


If 15 years ago you were told that one day people would be sitting on their computers, selling other peoples products and making hundreds of thousands of dollars per year – you would have responded in disbelief.  The fact of the matter is that affiliate marketing has quickly become one of the most profitable business models in the history of business.  And with the rise of affiliate marketing related membership courses, tutorials and training products available, generating a better than full time income from affiliate marketing commissions can easily be accomplished in 12 months.
To better understand the benefits of affiliate marketing compared to most traditional offline business models; let’s take a look at some of the reasons why people are choosing the affiliate marketing path:

  • Compared to offline business, affiliate marketing businesses require almost zero overhead.  One can operate a successful affiliate marketing set up with a lap top, printer, phone line, Paypal account and registered business name.  Setting up a home office is an easy task, and often requires very little investment to create a productive environment.  No liability insurance, commercial lease of employees required.
  • Affiliate marketing doesn’t require you to maintain a stock of products.  Not having to store physical products translates into ridding your business of pesky fees involved with leasing storage space, man hours to log the inventory and associated shipping costs.
  • You are not tied to one single market.  While many can argue that you can have several offline businesses in various markets, the odds that one person can effectively manage those businesses is highly unlikely; their expenses would be through the roof!  With affiliate marketing you can hop from niche to niche, test the waters, accumulate statistical data and launch your “store front” for free.  The only cost is time and maybe a few domain names.

It doesn’t take a mathematician to convince someone of the many benefits presented with affiliate marketing.  If you have the desire to quit your job, work for yourself, spend more time with your family and ultimately live a more fulfilling life – than affiliate marketing might be what you’ve been looking for!  Just keep in mind that making things “work” will take time, sweat, money and sleepless nights, but the rewards are plentiful if you stick with it.

How To Build a Profitable Affiliate Website


In the affiliate marketing industry, it’s imperative that you have good website as a base of operations.  The goal is to build something that people will want to visit.  Your success is based on the amount of people you can drive to the site so creating something that is well thought out will be advantageous to you.  Here we have laid out some of the most important factors to consider when staring an affiliate marketing website.

The very first step is to decide what the subject of your site is going to be.  It is a good idea to choose areas that you are interested in, to ensure that you stay motivated to maintain it.  For example, if you are a movie buff, consider a website focusing on movies, reviews and paraphernalia.  Once you have decided on a topic, start researching affiliate offers revolving around movie tickets, DVD’s, Blu-ray or electronics.  Try to choose campaigns that are directly related to the subject of you site and avoid ones that have no obvious link.

On the same token, ensure that you content is relevant to the subject.  Visitors to your site will lose faith in your authority on movies if you are posting content about kittens.  Keep you content as current as possible.  This may mean posting new content often, even once or twice a week.  By updating your content, you are ensuring that your visitors keep coming back for new information. 

Also, make sure that you are optimizing the search engines by using keywords related to your topic. This ensures that the search engines recognize your website when someone enters a specific search term.  The more new content you can add that has current keywords in it, the faster your page will rank.  Of course the goal is to have your site rank on the first page of the search engine results.  In addition, be aware that not only do search engines like audio and video, but so will your visitors.  So try to include audio and video posts.

In order to satisfy your visitors, make certain that you are hosting your site with a reliable source.  Unreliable hosting will frustrate visitors and prevent them from returning.  Similarly, keep your site clean and easy to navigate.  Although it may be tempting, refrain from overloading the site with too many affiliate marketing campaigns.  This is overwhelming to the visitor and again decreases your authority.

A great looking, easy to navigate website will exponentially increase your traffic.  By increasing the traffic to your site, you are encouraging people to click through your affiliate marketing campaigns..  Remember that visitors are most likely to trust you and your site when you are the authority on one topic and your site is designed with their convenience in mind.
