Despite a lot of opportunities to make money online i finally stopped at affiliate marketing. I had to make some choice mainly because you just can't benefit from every single opportunity to make money online simply because you won't have enough time for this. So what were the reasons why i have chosen affiliate marketing?
1. You are Your Own Boss
This point have always attracted me. You don't need to do your job in hurry or trying to please someone. You don't need to get up with alarm. You can work whenever you want to. You just work at your pace and the only thing to motivate yourself for working harder is knowing that if you work more you will simply get more money and more success.
2. Affiliate Marketing is a Real Business You Own
It is already not 9-5 job nor work by contract. Here you just work for yourself and you already own a business. Your Business.
3. You Can Work From Anywhere Where There is an Internet Connection
Basically you can work from home, you can work at the seaside while having vacation, you can work at your favorite cafe during the lunch. All you need is a computer and an internet connection.
4. You don't need your own product, because you can sell other people products
Many people may be a bit confused concerning the fact about selling other people's products. Some may think that in order to sell something they will need to buy it first and may become scared that they won't be able to resell the product at higher price. With affiliate marketing in order to sell the product you don't have to buy it yourself. You just sell someone's product and receive commissions from them. Even though commission rates are different it is pretty common to see 50% or more commission rate which is without a doubt very appealing.
5. Your Business is Global
While there are a lot of businesses which are restricted to a specific geographical location, affiliate marketing is not. You can make business anywhere in the world from anywhere you want.
6. Low Capital to Get Started
When thinking about business most of us think that we need thousands of free money to get started. That is not the case with affiliate marketing. I can't say that you won't need money at all to get successful, because you will need to spend some money anyway on your education and other things which you will need to get started. However it will be enough only to have several hundred of USD to get started.
7. Affiliate marketing can become a source of passive income
Once you have established your affiliate marketing business it can become a source of passive income. That means that you will have more free time which you can devote to your family, hobbies or any other deed you enjoy to do!
