The following article is one of a series of articles which focus on Affiliate, Article and Internet Marketing. All of the articles are based on real experiences and research done over twenty years as a personal and business coach. They are also written in response to questions which I have been asked as well as address common challenges that people have with affiliate marketing, article marketing, internet marketing or running an online business in general. I sincerely hope that you find the following information of value. One idea, one tip, one clue can make all the difference.
Affiliates, Make The Most Money With Niche Markets
Affiliate marketing and working with niche markets is the way to go today regardless of age if you are eager to make a lot of money. I'm not saying that affiliate marketers never have to work a single day in their lives and just rake in the cash while sitting out by the pool, but there are tremendous perks to this job.
Do you hate going to work every day? Commuting, whether by car or mass transit, is an absolute bore. The hours you spend every week commuting are lost hours that you will never get back before you die. So why not choose something better?
The best thing about affiliate marketing is the freedom to work in a relaxing environment. The "office" could be your home desk, the kitchen table or, why not?, a table by the pool. Every day is "casual Friday" and all your tools are concentrated in the computer.
No paperwork to shift around from one desk to another. And the earnings are on par with the setting. The more effort you're willing to put in building a maintaining a nice website, the more money will come in every day. If this isn't a good deal, then I don't know what a good deal could be.
Some people think that affiliate marketing is too much work and that splashing some AdSense ads on a page is far easier. It might be so, but how much money can you get out of AdSense? Two or three dollars a day? Come on, that's not money but loose change.
Affiliate marketing may be a bit harder than AdSense, but this is where people actually spend money. If you play with the big boys, you could make as much as $175 out of every sale. That's the equivalent of 58.3 days of AdSense at $3 per day you can make in one day.
Affiliate, Article and Internet Marketing in general isn't as easy as many would have us believe. I fully understand (through my own experiences) that it is a lot easier said than done. However, you are here, right now, because you have a desire to improve your business, grow your business, and be more successful. These articles are here with the sole intention of helping you to make the whole process a lot easier.
What many people don't realize is that the global economy is going through a huge spending period. Across the world people are willing to pay good money for all kinds of products and the Internet has made it easier than ever to spend money. eCommerce has made it possible for people to buy things they had never had access to before.
Orders pour in and products and services move across countries because people can search the Internet for answers to their problems and are willing to pay for solutions, regardless or where they come from.
It's like a river of money moving across the planet and you can become one of those who help connect the buyers with vendors and cash in commission while never leaving their armchairs. The gap between offer and demand is huge nowadays because there are far more people with money out there than there are people who sell things.
The key is to find products that are underrepresented, highly demanded and pay high. Until now affiliate information packages do not address this. Many of the marketing programs out there are about re-selling the program you have just purchased.
Although there are affiliates making money without a website by referring people directly to the merchants' sales pages. there are two serious pitfalls with this approach. Firstly, if no real preselling has been done and the merchant's sales page is less than convincing, the chance of making a sale is greatly reduced.
Secondly, the merchant has just been handed the opportunity to make follow-up sales directly and not through an affiliate program.
Take control and keep control.
