Most people dream of financial freedom. The joy of not having to go to work or answering to a boss makes us happy just thinking about it. No more boring, long commutes or annoying colleagues. Bliss…
The Internet has now given many people the chance to actually live such a lifestyle.
It’s the ‘Internet Dream’.
The cozy laptop lifestyle whereby you can travel where you want, when you want, and make plenty of money while doing so.
Can it really be done?
Of course it can. If others have done it, so can you.
And if there is one sure way that can set you on the road to financial freedom, I believe ‘affiliate marketing’ is it.
– It’s easy to get started.
– You don’t have to create your own products.
– You don’t have to buy stock or store it anywhere.
– You don’t need to know how to use a shopping cart.
– You don’t have to handle customer support.
As an affiliate, you don’t have to create the products you’re promoting, you just promote products that already exist. It’s easier than creating and selling your own products. All you have to do is focus on sending traffic to your affiliate link.
This is a really good way to start your online marketing journey, and many people have had great success with affiliate marketing, going on to make a nice full-time income from it.
But there are some drawbacks to it:
– You only get a percentage of the sale of the product.
– You don’t get to build your own list of subscribers.
– You have to drive all the traffic yourself to your affiliate link.
– You are competing with thousands of other experienced affiliates.
The hardest part is getting quality traffic, and traffic that converts. This is probably the biggest reason why so many inexperienced would-be affiliates struggle, and very soon give up on their dreams.
So how do you rise above this struggle?
How do you take your business from a few dollars a month to a few thousand a week?
Without a doubt, the only way is to create your own products.
The most successful online marketers all sell their own products. That’s just a fact.
Creating your own products may sound a bit daunting at first, but don’t worry, it’s easier than you think, especially when you have the right information and guidance.
Let’s look at why product creation is the best way forward…
1: You can brand yourself as an expert:
You are now a product creator. You have the chance to brand yourself and your products. If your products are good, you will build a loyal following of customers. As a product creator you will get more respect and recognition.
2: You make 100% on the sale of your product:
As a product creator and owner, you will receive all payments. Nobody can short-change you.
3: You’re building your own list of subscribers/buyers:
In most cases, this is a buyers list which is infinitely more valuable than a general list of freebie seekers. You can sell other affiliate products to your list and make even more money.
4: You don’t have to drive all the traffic yourself:
You can have an army of other affiliates selling your products for you. All affiliates help to build the product owners’ lists. Of course, other affiliates can build a list by directing their traffic to a squeeze page first.
However, the visitors will then go on to join the product creator’s list if they buy the product. So, as the product creator, you are building a valuable buyer list from the efforts of all the other affiliates.
5: Residual income:
Buyers who have purchased from you will be much more likely to buy from you again. As a product creator, you can always create new products that will appeal to your buyers and you will be able to generate sales over and over.
So it’s easy to see why you must master the art of product creation if you really want to make a killing at affiliate marketing.
When I first realized this my thought was, “Yeah, well that’s great, but what do I know about product creation. How the hell do I even begin to create a product of my own. Where do I start?”
And that’s where the right information and guidance comes in…
If you want to be successful in anything in life, all you do is follow in the footsteps of someone who has already done it, right?
