Like yesterday, I remember the feeling I had when I 1st heard about Affiliate Marketing. It was more of a range of feelings to be precise. From a “this is what I’ve been searching for!” to a “is too good to be true?” Now, six months or so later, I have learned a lot more about this business model. I have interacted with affiliate marketers, and I have become an affiliate marketer myself. What I’ve found is that the more I get to understand this business model, the happier I am that I stumbled upon it. Here are 5 reasons why I love affiliate marketing and hope to continue doing it in the future.
One of the biggest attractions to affiliate marketing is the time and location freedom it offers. It’s not a 9-5 job where you’re stuck at one place for a set number of hours, 5 days a week. With affiliate marketing, I could work from anywhere, and at any time – all I need is a laptop and an internet connection. I could work at 3am in my bedroom, and I could work while visiting my sister abroad in London. I could do it around my job, or I could do it full time if I choose. Basically, it gives my options, and where there are options there is freedom.
2. Passive Income
Everyone wants to be able to generate income without much effort. But how can we get that? From my experience, there are many “opportunities” that offer passive income. Still, when you investigate, you find that they are not nearly as easy as they claim. And if they indeed are easy, then the income they generate is pretty small and unreliable.
The truth is that money doesn’t grow on trees – we can’t get something for nothing. And affiliate marketing is no different. You have to put in some work to earn income from it. But the remarkable thing about affiliate marketing is that you can leverage technology and automated systems, which allows you to earn income even when you’re asleep or on vacation with the family. And this business model is highly scalable. That is, you can significantly increase your revenue with a comparatively small increase in effort.
3. Profiting Around Passions
There are many companies and brands which offer affiliate programs. There is a vast amount of products and services for which you could be an affiliate. You, therefore, have options to promote products that you’re really interested in. In fact, the best affiliate marketers are those who promote products or services that they truly believe in. So this is a win-win business – profiting from things that you’re passionate about.
“Affiliate marketing is an excellent opportunity if you truly believe in the value of the product you’re selling. Because many times, you can make money off of something you would probably recommend anyway.”Neil Patel
4. Positive impact
We all have our various problems and issues in life. But as affiliate marketers, we are positioned to connect people with products/services that might help solve some of their problems. For example, one issue that many people have today is that they feel frustrated by their jobs. Either it doesn’t provide sufficiently for their financial needs or they don’t feel fulfilled by it or it takes time away from them that they’d rather spend with family or doing what they love. I like to think that I help solve those problems by connecting people with training and mentoring and support that could help empower them to make a positive change in their lives.
5. Aligned with my goals
Affiliate marketing is helping me to pursue my purpose in life. Many of us have passions, things that we would love to spend most of our days doing. But the thing is, the bills just gotta be paid. We have to work to earn money. And most times, our work is what takes up the primary space in our lives. For me, affiliate marketing is a solution to that dilemma. Because through it, I am creating a future of time, location, and financial freedom so that I could really pursue my passions and purpose.
