If you’re looking to make a ton of money online, then the best option for the widest selection of people is undoubtedly affiliate marketing.
This is the online business model with the lowest barriers to entry that anyone can learn and anyone can master. At the same time, it is potentially one of the most profitable business models you can use online and certainly much more profitable than blogging for AdSense revenue or similar.
And this is a point that advertisers on Facebook often like to labor. Chances are that you’ll have seen plenty of adverts for online money-making schemes and “programs“. And no doubt 9/10 times, they’ll be based around affiliate marketing.
You’ll know these ads if you see them. They’re the ones where people talk to you from their private yacht and tell you how they make a 6-figure salary in just a few hours of work each week.
Likewise, you’ll probably have seen the videos of online “billionaires” talking about their money-making systems while wearing smart suits in very pimped-out offices.
They’ve created a “digital empire” all their own using affiliate marketing techniques and now they’re rich and powerful and you probably want to be them…
But is this all true? Can you really accomplish all that through affiliate marketing? Is it really that easy? Or is there more to it than that?
How Much Does an Affiliate Marketer Make?
First of all, let’s assess the claims about earnings. We don’t have to guess at this. During the Affiliate Summit over 1,800 affiliate marketers answered a survey describing everything from their methods to their earnings.
How much were they bringing in?
Well, only 46% earned less than $20K while 8% earned $50K-$100K and 12% earned $100K+. At the very least, this shows it’s certainly very possible to earn big money. (The rest were around the middle, but note that 19% elected not to answer at all.)
What’s also interesting here though is the sheer spread of earnings. Affiliate marketing is bringing in from $20K to $100K and beyond, which you just don’t find in traditional careers.
So what’s making a big difference here?
It’s the skill of the individual.
As an affiliate marketer, you’re self-employed and working alone. There’s no need to “climb the corporate ladder” or compete for promotions. You can get to the top overnight if you have the right skills because it’s all on you.
And in this book, we’ll be looking at the secrets you need to really start earning the big bucks as an affiliate marketer.
