What is affiliate marketing? – The monster that won’t go away!
Affiliate marketing is the act of promoting a product or service for a company or brand that pays you a handsome commission of their sales for attracting customers to their website.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn an exciting profit that generates a monthly passive income consistently, if you work hard at turning your visions into reality. If you’re passionate about delivering quality content to your audiences, while opening their minds, and entertaining their hearts? your audience wouldn’t e able to have enough of your engaging presence.
Ultimately it’s the positive influence that you have over your peers that allow them to recognize the fact that your words are valuable. What you offer is something that they have to need because they need to have it! They need you to help them have that value.
REMEMBER: You Always have something to offer that your target audience needs: that could be the knowledge of a product, a skill set, or experience in a focused area of a broader market. That area of focus is what you call your niche.
In my case, I love writing about how to become an efficient affiliate marketer. My niche is guiding people to become a great one; just as long as they have an idea of what their website will be about.
The role of an affiliate marketer- The voice of reason
Remember earlier when I said that affiliate marketing is the act of promoting a product or service for brands and companies who pay an affiliate, a commission of their sales for directing prospective clients to their websites?
here’s my unique perception on that, if you find a company or list of companies that you trust, and believe in the products and services that they offer, you would be more than excited to promote them. Here’s why: when you combine a passion that you have (not a hobby), with the kind of audience that just may have something in common with you, you are guaranteed to create something amazing!
- Not only are you selling a brand, you are in all respect, your own brand!
- I believe that my business is minding yours!
- I believe I can inspire you to amaze yourself because forget what anybody else in your life says, I know that deep down you feel that you were meant for greatness, and I believe in you!
You ought to know that there are still people that care about your success… New Affiliates Guide wouldn’t have been created if I wasn’t passionate about seeing my efforts pay off! because without you, and the successful people who have motivated me to create this website, this article wouldn’t even have existed whatsoever!
You are now at a point in which you might make the decision on taking on a role that I must warn you in advance, it’s not for everyone!
But the role you will take from now on, anyone with the right determination, the focus and the desire to put into practice, the concepts that they are going to be receiving during their training, is a role that will make you a winner if you work for it.
Let’s get some truths and myths about what affiliate marketing is:
-It is not a get rich scheme!:
a.Your success is measured by the kind of work ethic that you demonstrate in your work space (respect it!) b. It’s how you want to make a living so you can’t half ass anything, including doing what 95% of people that are aspiring to be entrepreneurs, just won’t do!
-It is a lucrative way to achieve financial freedom: It is possible for you to make up to the thousands in commissions month to month when, and only, if you have put in the work that you would know in the end, it sure wasn’t easy!
-THIS ONE IS MY OWN PERSONAL TRUTH: Affiliate marketing is a career path that you take to test your own limits. You have to love what you do. What you have to love is connecting with people just like you, that have a mutual interest in whatever it is that you chose to connect with them in the first place!
Remember, if someone was looking for someone just like you to talk about your love about lawn gnomes, it’s because it’s good to know that people within the home and garden community understand the importance of bringing cheer and joy to your garden to reflect the happy humor that your personality has. And not all gardening aficionados have a gnome in their yards, right?
Your audience-The sole reason why you’re even here
If I asked you that if you’re ready to make a difference, would you be excited and inspired to jump up and go out of your way to try to figure out how you could go about making that difference? Deep, ain’t it?
Now, if I asked you that if you were prepared to allow yourself to quit or fail, you would look at me like I’m crazy, right?
People are going to miss 100% of the shots that they don’t take- That’s a cold hard truth!
Now stay with me on this one because it’s the most crucial pillar that will keep your entire foundation remain intact even when people within your audience expand to new horizons: that which you had left for those that believe in what you’re about, will always find their way back to you.
Because what you have left them with, is a lasting impression of what they will always recognize you for: being genuinely sincere about caring to fulfill their needs.
That is what it ultimately boils down to, the very reason why you were meant to be where you are.
And the reason why I chose to create this website to begin with: to be there for those who been looking for someone like me to guide them and explain what is affiliate marketing and how it works.
That is how you will succeed and be where you always wanted to be.
