So I had a crazy idea while I was sitting down having my morning cup of coffee and I want to do a training article for you. I want to do an article because I want to walk you through the business of affiliate marketing with the sole purpose of getting you to look at affiliate marketing as something a little bit different then you might have been taught about affiliate marketing before.
I know there’s a lot of people out there that think affiliate marketing is just something that you do, like it’s just a really great way to get started in this space without really ever mapping out the long term sustainability of their affiliate marketing business.
So a lot of times they’ll get caught up in promoting one-off products and services from Click bank or from JV Zoo or from Warrior Plus or maybe they become an affiliate of a friend’s course or friend’s product or maybe they jump inside of an affiliate marketing system, where they’re promoting the products of that system or maybe they are promoting a friends product.
But they have a very much so like a one-off mindset when it comes to affiliate marketing.
I want you to think differently about it when I’m done with this training article. I don’t want you to think about it as something that they’re merely doing or a product or a service that you’re just simply trying to sell. I don’t want you to think about affiliate marketing in the short term, in terms of just trying to make a quick buck.
Instead, I really want to help you with your mindset and understanding that you can actually use affiliate marketing as a great low-cost way to get started in a business for yourself that you can leverage other people’s products, other people’s services, other people’s opportunities.
But that you can build it out in such a way where you are in fact building out a business that is not about just a one-off product or a one-off service or one-off sale, but you’re thinking a lot bigger and you’re thinking for the long-term.
Therefore, you’re building out a system that’s conducive to that.
So I actually made this discovery because I’ve been in business for over 9 years. I personally have marketed all kinds of products and services and opportunities and I’ve made a lot of money promoting other people’s stuff.
Essentially, that’s what affiliate marketing is, is when you decide to affiliate yourself with another company or another person’s products, services or opportunities, and when you decide to affiliate yourself with them and you make a sale that you earn a percentage of the commission, right. You earn a percentage of the sales which equals your commissions.
On the flip side of things, you can also create your own products and services of which case allows you to earn a lot more money because you’re technically earning pretty much 100% of the proceeds. It allows you to be able to do a lot more things inside of your business, right, and I’ve been able to make money from all of those things.
But when I got started in affiliate marketing is really how I got started and I got really, really, good at promoting other people’s products and services. But what I didn’t realize is that the entire time, I’ve always built my own systems, and I’ve always built my own infant structures, and I always had a process about how I built my business so that it truly was never ever about a one-off product service or opportunity.
That truly on the back end I was building something that was more sustainable and something that was for the long-term. Even though no one truly breaks this down for me, it was just something that I just inherently did. What I realized over time is that more people need to be taught this.
