I've read some of your articles and you seem to know your stuff.
I have a question though; I want to start a web business to supplement my regular job income.
I'm not looking for a get rich quick scheme, or to make ,000 a month online (thought if it happened I certainly wouldn't mind! I've seen the claims about affiliate marketing making x bazillions per month, etc.
I want something that I can work on in the evenings while I still have my 9 to 5.An Internet biz seems like the perfect fit for my circumstances.I just don't want to waste time and money on a load of crap.I don't have a physical product to sell so I guess the whole affiliate thing is what I need to focus on unless you have another suggestion. I'm just looking for an objective opinion from someone who doesn't have a stake in trying to sell me something.Any advice or tips would be very much appreciated!!
Yes, Anonny, There Really Is Money to Be Made in Affiliate Marketing The short answer is yes, affiliate programs can work. Like any income venture, success comes not so much from what you choose to do to make money, but whether you do what needs to be done correctly and consistently.
Affiliate marketing is an ideal home business because it doesn't require much money to get started, and you don't have produce, stock or ship product inventory, or deliver service.
You're essentially paid for referring new clients and customers.
The Realities of Affiliate Programs The problem with affiliate marketing, like many other home business options, are the so-called gurus and get-rich-quick programs that suggest affiliate marketing can be done fast and with little effort.
Odds are you've read claims of affiliate marketing programs that say you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month doing absolutely nothing.
Or, you can set it and forget it, except to check your bank deposits.
