What is Affiliate Marketing Anyway?

Ways to Make Money Online

Affiliate marketing is only one way to make money online. There are many ways to make money online. We will share why we chose affiliate marketing and how it may or may not be the right choice for you. 

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing means you are simply selling someone else’s product online and receiving a commission. You can be an affiliate marketer for one product or multiple products. 

No Inventory Required

It’s not necessary to carry an inventory. The company you are an affiliate for looks after product logistics and inventory.  Any customer complaints are directed to the company you are an affiliate marketer for, not you.

Be An Affiliate For Products You Believe in

There are many products out there to market as affiliate marketers. Find products that spark your passion. It’s easier to sell products you believe in, trust and are passionate about. The educated consumer will know you aren’t being honest or authentic if you endorse a product you don’t use yourself. 

People Trust Strangers 

In today’s market, people are just as likely to trust strangers as they are people they know. One click and you’re gone if you’re not transparent and real.

Affiliate Marketing May Not Be For You ....

Are You an Inventor?

Maybe you’re a passionate inventor and you have developed a product that lots of people need. Then by all means, market that. You can market your product on sites set up for people like you.  Amazon is the big one, but there are others. Etsy, Shopify and eBay are a few others to check out. 

Have a Service You Want to Get Out to the World?

It’s not just products that are sold online, you can sell services too. Perhaps you are a career coach, or a fitness trainer.  You can learn how to reach millions of people all over the world.  People can benefit from what you uniquely have to offer.

Is Writing a Book Your Thing?

We have met people within the Six Figure Mentor community who started an online business and then with time, followed another passion and wrote a book. The online journey is not a straight line, it can take you in many directions. It can unleash passions you didn't know you had.

The Choices You Make Are As Unique As You!

Affiliate marketing isn't the answer for everyone. The choices you make online vary because of life experiences, interests, profession, passions and/or choices you have already made. As you can see the decision to choose affiliate marketing will take some thought. One thing for sure, online is where's it at! As long as the world needs what you have to offer, you can get your message to the world like never before.

Six Figure Mentors is a Starting Point

We decided to become affiliate marketers for Six Figure Mentors to learn online skills. Although Six Figure Mentors is our starting point, being Affiliate marketers for Six Figure Mentors only is not our end goal. Being affiliates for products that help people on their online journey is something we are passionate about too.

We plan on leveraging the education we have gained in many directions and you can too.
