I am sure that each one of you know someone who wants to work for themselves in one form or another. The allure of being your own boss can be over powering. But then…..reality sets in and you realize you either don’t have the money to do it, or the risk is to big for you, or both! Statistics show that some 90% of all small businesses will fail in the first year. Affiliate marketing is almost like you being the commission salesman for a product, you are only what you sell. There can be no costs and not risks, as you can put in what you will and get rewarded accordingly. As with any other business affiliate marketing can be challenging, and you will have to work hard to build it up. But in the following paragraphs, you will find some tips that hopefully will make your journey a little easier, and successful as it can be. When you sell anything, it is always good to know all about your product and to believe in it as well. Also, working with something that is familiar is kind of like having experience in that field. Your job can be a little easier. But remember that in the world of affiliate marketing there are no perfect setups/programs. One other thing to consider is your website. Don’t over do it/stuff it with advertising and banner ads of all kinds. This is definitely one area where quality over quantity matters. Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money and work for you. The risk to you is minimal and there is no start up cost. There are many great affiliate marketing programs out there and choosing the right one may seem like a daunting task. When you first start out remember to stick to what you know. Find something you know about and have an interest in. Make your site attractive to others and resist the urge to fill it with banners. This may end up having the opposite of your desired effect. Finally remember, there is no perfect program. Some will have success where others have failed. It is all down to you. Don’t give up. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below.

    • Samuel Rizk

      I am a newbie and trying so hard to understand all marketing stuff. Which is better, you have your own website for branding or just an ordinary blog space where you put all content? It has high maintenance right? Not really sure if it’s a good.

      • pericw

        It all depends on how much money you have, but a self hosted web site is always the best way, as it allows for a better experience in trying to set up your own brand. As far as maintenance goes, it all really depends on how much money you do or do not want to make. If you want this to be job replacing, it will take more effort than if you don’t. Give it a shot. Like me you find time to start with until it becomes big enough to replace your job (if that’s what you want).
