I had heard the words Affiliate Marketing many times before and I wanted to know how to become an Affiliate Marketeer, with minimal research, I came across a video presented by Stuart Ross of Launch You.

As it turned out, it could not have happened at a better time in my life, as I found myself unexpectedly needing to take care of my parents, which became full-time for a while.

Learning what Affiliate Marketing was all about, it soon allowed me to stop working the regular office bound 9 to 5 job, with my new-found freedom it allowed me to concentrate on providing the care my parents so desperately required.

The best bit, the money started to roll in, thankfully with minimal amount of required time, as I was now looking after my parents’ full time.

I had no online digital marketing experience at the age of 61 but I firmly believe Affiliate Marketing is a great online business model, if you are working in a full-time job, wanting to retire or close too, which is where I am now or you find yourself in an situation in life, you were not expecting, Affiliate Marketing is the business for you  – it is, once up and running, a very much hands off business.

You may now be asking how does Affiliate Marketing work, how do I get set up and start making online sales, where do I sign up?

You can read my personal thoughts on Affiliate Marketing below or better still, why not  click on the link below and watch the video.

What is Affiliate Marketing and how does it work?

Affiliate marketing is where you promote and sell other company’s products to earn a commission.

You become an online partner with brands and promote their products to your audience, earning a commission on each sale made through your unique referral link.

Affiliate Marketing is a great way to earn an income around your job – especially if you don’t have your own product or service to launch.!

You simply leverage an existing company’s products and go out and market that product. The company may even provide the marketing assets for you. On top of that, the company will deal with customer enquiries, refunds, fulfilment, etc, so you don’t have to. So essentially, it’s a ready-made business which you have to market.

When it comes to Affiliate Marketing, you really want to market a product you have either used before or would happily recommend it to others.

If you want help getting started with your own Affiliate Marketing business – check out the same training that I used as a beginner.

It is still in my opinion one of the best Affiliate Marketing training programs out there, the program not only educates you about Affiliate Marketing, but it can also educate you about online digital marketing as a whole, in case you decide you want to start your own unique online digital business.

What are the Benefits of Affiliate Marketing?

I firmly believe that Affiliate Marketing is the best online business model for digital beginners, especially if you don’t have your own product, service or offering.

  • Low Risk

There is no huge capital outlay required. Your only expense will be for paid advertising if you choose to go down that route. It’s great for beginners, especially for those of you currently in full time jobs, who initially want to use Affiliate Marketing to build a side income around their jobs.

  • Scalable

When you consider the size of your audience for your particular niche, scaling is very possible with Affiliate Marketing.

  • Focus on Marketing

You only have to focus on marketing to new customers, as all other services like fulfilment, deliveries, returns and customer services are all handled by the company you have an Affiliate Marketing link with.

  • No holding of stock

If you are an Affiliate Marketeer of a physical product, there is no need to hold stock, this is all done by the company you are Affiliated with, who will deliver the product to the customer directly on your behalf.

  • Time leverage
