“WORK FROM HOME WITH YOUR OWN FREE ONLINE BUSINESS”
Firstly, there is a simple but very important concept to self-employment that I want you to understand.
“THERE IS A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAVING YOUR OWN BUSINESS
AND SIMPLY OWNING YOUR JOB!”
Owning your job is what self-employed builders, plumbers, plasterers, electricians, land scape designers, accountants, restauranteurs, taxi drivers, couriers, or IT contractors, etc, do. There are many more, but these are just an example to illustrate the point.
The downside to all of these is that they are all dependent on availability of work and they have to contend with competition. Trades people are also at the mercy of the weather – if they can’t do a job outdoors on a particular day they don’t even earn a penny. Just as they can’t work through sickness or injury or earn any money if they go away on holiday.
Then come all the additional headaches of liability insurances, laws and regulations such as Health & Safety, staff issues such as payroll, taxes, training, reliability, retention, and finding Customers – many of whom will be ‘Once-only’.
“All that’s enough to put most people off the idea of self-employment for life!”
In the Digital Age we now live in, it has never been easier for the average person to set up and run their own home based business to enable them to achieve that much desired but all elusive WORK LIFE BALANCE as well as INCOME SECURITY.
Gone are the days when massive capital outlay and business acumen or good luck were needed to avoid the pain and penalties of failure.

“SO, WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING?”
Put very simply, Affiliate Marketing is the method by which someone promotes a company’s products or services in exchange for a commission.
“The Affiliate is the link between the Supplier and the Customer”
Have you ever bought a product or service through a personal recommendation?
Have you ever eaten in a restaurant that someone has recommended to you? If so, did you enjoy your meal so much that you also then recommended it to someone else?
Now, when those people whom you recommended the restaurant to went to eat there, did you get a percentage of their bill paid to you as a commission? Probably not! However, you brought that restaurant extra business that they would not have had if you had not recommended it. Just as did the person who recommended you. That is the essence of Affiliate Marketing!
“YOU AND THE ONLINE SHOPPING REVOLUTION”
The World Wide Web has revolutionized the way Merchandizers get their products in from of Customers and as a result, Affiliate Marketing has evolved from being merely a way companies expand their reach online to being the very essence of their brand.
The most obvious example of an online Retailer, of course, is Amazon. It is highly probably that YOU will have bought something via their website.
When you did this, it is almost certain that you were taken to the sales page via an affiliate link and the Affiliate would have earned a percentage commission on your purchase.
Amazon how have around 500,000,000 (yes – half a billion!) products and a network of thousands of Affiliates throughout the World promoting those products via their affiliate programme ‘Amazon Associates’.
“And it’s not only Amazon. Online shopping now makes up more than half of total retail!”
In 2016, the percentage was 51%, compared to 48% in 2015 and 47% in 2014.
Roughly half of Smartphone users currently make purchases through their device and the trend if moving rapidly upwards.
“In fact all major online brands – Apple, BestBuy, Hotels Combined, Trip Advisor, Virgin and many more are now being built by Affiliate Marketing!”
There are literally HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF AFFILIATE PROGRAMMES to chose from which pay COMMISSIONS OF UP TO 75% for sales of products which are then shipped directly from the Supplier to the Customer. The Affiliate doesn’t actually handle the products at all!
The advantage to the Retailer is that most of the expensive ‘Middle Men’ associated with the traditional Retail Supply Chain, such as Sales & Marketing teams, expensive advertizing and of course High Street shops which have to be rented, staffed, heated, lit, stocked, etc, have now been replaced by individual, independent Affiliates who are paid on a sale only basis.
This saves the Supplier a fortune, which can then be used to keep prices down and pay commissions to the Affiliates who bring in the sales.
The advantage to the Affiliate is that he or she can own and run their own business set up for them at source and earn commissions without having to develop, produce, stock or ship their own products or services or cope with any of the headaches that come with a traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ business.
“The Affiliate Marketing industry is forecast to be worth $6 Billion by 2019!
That is going to be like a huge tidal wave – just imagine yourself being
stood in front of it and being picked up and carried along by it!”
There are products and services that you use every single day whose suppliers will have their own affiliate programmes.
“SOME OF THESE WILL RELATE TO YOUR OWN HOBBIES AND PASSIONS!!”
“WHY AFFILIATE MARKETING IS HERE TO STAY”
Companies are always looking at ways to reduce costs and all of the Middle Men mentioned earlier are expensive overheads, Since Affiliates are only paid on a sale only basis, they do not cost the company anything if they don’t bring in sales so they won’t face being fired.
“How much or how little you do is entirely up to you.
An under-performing Sales person, on the other hand, would not have that luxury!”
Active Affiliates are considered valuable assets and therefore companies are looking to recruit more and more Affiliates all the time.
At no point will a company say to one of their Affiliates
‘Whoa….steady on. You’re bringing far too many sales in.’
Why would they….? The more they are paying out to their Affiliates in sales related commissions is a direct reflection of how well their business is doing!
“The traditional corporate practice of ‘downsizing’, ‘rightsizing’, wage restraint, etc, has been completely turned on its’ head!”
