“Dreaming of being able to make a decent living through passive income?”
Ever since Timothy Ferriss published his book “The 4-Hour Workweek,” people have been ditching their 9 to 5 jobs and taking the plunge into affiliate marketing. If you’ve dreamed of being able to make a decent living through passive income, then affiliate marketing is a path you should consider taking. The idea behind affiliate marketing is that you promote the products of other people, many times through an affiliate network, and earn commissions when people buy those products as a result of your marketing efforts. Pretty easy right? Unfortunately, there is a little more to the process, and it will take some upfront work on your part. Before you can get started in affiliate marketing, it is essential for you to understand that there are four different parties involved in the process and how each fit in with the system. When it comes down to the actual marketing part of the affiliate marketing system, there are two sides to the equation: the creator and seller of the product and the affiliate marketer. What does this mean? You can look at affiliate marketing as the process of spreading product creation and marketing across various parties, where each of the parties receives a share of the profits according to their individual contribution to the marketing efforts. This, simply put, means that you can be both the creator and the marketer and still make a profit from the underlying idea of revenue sharing.
