Hello everyone and welcome to the first blog post on what I hope to be a very long and detailed blog about affiliate marketing. By the time this blog is finished which I plan on keeping active for several years I hope to show you a business that has been built from the ground up. While I have been involved with affiliate marketing for many years, the industry has changed quite a bit since 2010 and so I have decided to start fresh and begin anew.
I do not plan on selling anything or using this blog as my main affiliate marketing income source, rather, I’m going to use this blog as a means to journal my business growth, setbacks, and adventures. In this blog you will learn all about my triumphs and failures as an affiliate marketer. It is no secret that affiliate marketing is more challenging than ever and I plan to show people that it is still possible to earn income online through affiliate marketing.
Affiliate Marketing Is Not Dead
I keep seeing and many of the affiliate marketing forums that affiliate marketing is dead. This simply is not true, but like all other things on the Internet, affiliate marketing has changed quite a bit. Since the industry has done a 180, many of the affiliate marketers who were successful in the 1990s and earlier part of the 2000s believe that affiliate marketing must be dead because their methods no longer work. This is silly thinking and unfortunately those people will not succeed into the future because they are missing the entire point. Affiliate marketing is a fast changing industry and the only people who will survive long term are people who are able to change with the industry as it morphs and develops into the future.
The changes with affiliate marketing will not stop coming and will only probably increase in its frequency of change. If you are not someone who is interested in changing and constantly learning with an industry that can literally change overnight, affiliate marketing probably is not the best career for you to get into. I am the other hand, love to be involved with an industry that always changes because I get bored easily. If soon as I do something for more than a couple of years I want to do something different. Affiliate marketing is the perfect solution for that and this affiliate marketing blog will be a documentation of my experiences.
Why Affiliate Marketing?
So, why affiliate marketing? The reason I decided to start my affiliate marketing blog is because it is simply easier to choose document and show people how to grow this business. While I own many other businesses, those are in different industries which are a little bit harder to give tutorials for on the Internet. I will always be into business ideas that offer residual income sources such as coin operated laundry facilities, billboards, and manager driven franchise opportunities. However, nothing is better than affiliate marketing when it comes to earning a residual income and being able to work from anywhere from any place and when you want to. You also do not need to train a large amount of employees because affiliate marketing can be grown into a substantial business with just one person. This is something that no other industry can match.
All Honesty. No Sales Pitches
While I may share with you some of the products and services which I have found helpful along the way in building my affiliate marketing franchise I hope you understand that this blog is not set up as some sort of a sales pitch or monetize Asian strategy. I am only using this affiliate marketing blog to relate my experiences to other people so that we can all learn from each other including our successes and our mistakes. So I hope you stick around and continue to read my blog because this affiliate marketing blog has been a long time coming and I’m very anxious to get started with helping you discover as much information about affiliate marketing as possible.
