Is an Affiliate business a good way to start making money online?

Last Update: January 04, 2016

The advantages:

  • The Affiliate product or service already exists and is tried and tested.
  • A promotion website is often provided as part of membership.
  • You do not normally have to hold, wrap or ship stock.
  • There are billions of potential buyers online all over the world.
  • There is often an opportunity to make a recurring passive income with little or no additional work.

The disadvantages:

  • Affiliate businesses sometimes have to pay an expensive monthly/ annual membership fee to cover website and owner costs.
  • Some Affilliate businesses expect members to buy the product each month.
  • Percentages in payment terms can vary enormously, from as little as 2%, to well over 50% of the product or service price.
  • Affiliates can make better profits if selling their own products or services.
  • Support from owners and upline Affiliates is often extremely poor. Newbies will often flounder, lose confidence and their money.

Is an Affiliate Business a good way to start out making money online?

Given the listed disadvantages, it will surprise many potential business owners that the answer is still a resounding YES!

Can we avoid being taken in or scammed by an Affiliate Opportunity?

With experience and a great deal of due diligence it is possible to sift out the good ones and of course there are many. However, for most of us, the obvious starter contender is right here under our noses!

Why choose to promote the Wealthy Affiliate?

  • Members are already using Wealthy Affiliate to train and build their own businesses
  • Many members join because the initial membership, of 2 websites and 10 lessons are free.
  • Having experience of what Wealthy Affiliate is all about, upgrading to Premium is a no brainer for those who are committed.
  • The "learning" modules, the live chat and other networking areas, the ranking and so much more, is simply inspirational and exemplary in every aspect of good motivational practice!
  • Leadership is outstanding at the highest level with Kyle and Carson and this is emulated many times over throughout this wonderful community!
  • Remuneration will be generous for those who persevere and follow training to the letter.

Nobody needs to be left behind with Wealthy Affiliates

Thank you Grandma, I do so agree! I can't think of any that worked for me, but then not one of them ever helped to train or teach us! Thank God Kyle and Carson are a different breed where "paying something back" is part of the creed. I love it! Best wishes, and glad to be following you! Chris

Hi Paul, you are of course right! Thank you for your comments. Knowing where the problems are, means that most platforms can be made to work. What I hate most are the crooks who deliberately make it almost impossible for their members to make a dime! Chris
