What is Affiliate Marketing?
Some people remember the 1990’s as a tremendous period of growth for grunge music and Jim Carrey films. While this is true, most people will probably tell you the 90’s were responsible for this big, beautiful, technology called the World Wide Web (aka the internet, the web, the vast digital ocean of information at our finger tips). And with any new technology or media, companies quickly realized they had a new opportunity to market their products and services to consumers via the millions of websites they visit every day.
With the emergence of search engines in the mid-1990’s, the internet ballooned into a massive e-commerce and information machine. Website owners were creating valuable content and providing tremendous benefits to their visitors, and these website owners wanted to be compensated for their hard work. Early forms of online advertising like CPM or fixed placement started seeing competition from emerging, more accountable forms of online advertising, like affiliate marketing. So, what is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing at its very core is about relationships, a relationship between three parties:
If there was one job, one profession that could set you financially free and let you work on your own time, we believe affiliate marketing would have to be it.
- It doesn’t discriminate against age, race or gender.
- It doesn’t care about who your parents were, your previous experience or whether you went to college or not.
- It doesn’t require you to be a people person or to dress to impress.
- It doesn’t care about anything that would concern “normal employers.”
- So if all that’s true, why aren’t more people succeeding online?
There are many reasons obviously, but there is ONE UGLY TRUTH that holdsmore people back than anything else we know of…
They just don’t know how!
It’s not that people don’t have access to “how to” information. It’s that for whatever the reason, it usually doesn’t work as stated. Too many affiliate marketers we know have had the experience of buying an affiliate marketing information product, perhaps spending thousands on it, only to discover it doesn’t work.
