Is Affiliate Marketing Worth It?
It's the question that every aspiring affiliate marketer asks.
"Is affiliate marketing worth it?"
And the answer is "Yes... and very much so."
But you have to know what you're doing.
Which is the same for any business, online or offline.
If you don't know what you're doing, you won't succeed.
So invest in training, such as Wealthy Affiliate or Affiliate Marketing FAST.
The proper training will teach you how to:
- Select a profitable niche
- Find and register a suitable domain name
- Engage a web host
- Build a website at the web host, based on your domain name
- Obtain affiliate links
- Add valuable content to your website
- Get traffic and build an email list
- Make sales
- Get paid.
Each of these steps needs to be done properly if you want to...
Live the Laptop Lifestyle
Have you heard of the laptop lifestyle?
It's when you can work whenever you like and wherever there's an internet connection.
And it's when there's a disconnect between your income and the hours you work.
You may be enjoying a substantial income, including while you sleep, even though you are doing no work on it right now.
Does this mean you've done no work at all?
No, but the income that you are enjoying now may be as a result of a few hours work you put in a month ago where you provided your website visitors with valuable information about an issue they were having and included your affiliate link to a product that would alleviate that issue.
Because you've gained the trust of your visitors (and a good training course will teach you how to do that through the power of storytelling; try Affiliate Marketing FAST) and you promote only ethical, effective products, people are still buying your product now and will continue to do so for years to come.
And all of them are on your email list (and again, a good training course will teach you how to build that list) so that whenever you promote another relevant product to them, you make more sales.

Don't Be the Affiliate Marketer Who Crashes and Burns
Before you start, it's realistic to be aware of some statistics.
A collaborative research project completed by Forbes, Huffington Post, and Marketing Signals, found 90% of all online businesses fail within the first 120 days of launch.
So the first determination that you should make is that you'll be in the 10%, not the 90%.
You won't do it by luck.
It needs knowledge, planning and a roadmap.
Go back to the first paragraph and take another look at the nine steps listed there.
Are you confident in your ability to do all of them?
I am and I'm also confident in my ability to carry you through with clear, step-by-step training.
