Todays Top Business Model Is Affiliate Marketing


Your looking for a home based business and don’t know where to start?  I can tell you that todays top business model is affiliate marketing.  Affiliate marketing success has been growing over the years with many beginners starting to make money and many professional marketers seeing continual growth.

How do I know?

I’m an affiliate marketer with one of the top marketing companies today…more on that later.

I’ve also been in network marketing or mlm.  I have own and operated several personal business and recently sold a healthcare practice that my wife and I operated for over 20 years.

Failures and Success

I failed at network marketing with 4 different business opportunities.  The failures was my own doing not the companies.  Trying to find good people was a challenge and keeping them was even more difficult.

I failed at a personal business in which I tried to market coupons for music videos.

Owned 2 franchises in which I made good money but required a lot of work and working 365 days a year plus paying royalties.

My private practice in healthcare was highly successful, but again for 20 years, my wife and I have very little time for vacations, no days off and no sick time.  If the doors were not opened, no money would come in.

Best Home Business Model

Why do I say that Affiliate Marketing is Todays Best Business Model?

Affiliate Marketing Online

One of the many benefits of affiliate marketing is the ability to operate your business online.

Affiliate Marketing Online or Internet Marketing is todays top business model for work at home entrepreneurs.

If your new to affiliate marketing, you may not know how this type of marketing strategy is a perfect fit for the home business entrepreneurs.

The good news is that, all you really need to know is a little bit of knowledge.  In fact there are only 3 basic steps.

  1.  Have a product or service
  2.  Invite them to take a look
  3.  Make a sale


With that little knowledge, I promise you can get to where you may want to be.

To make it easier, there is a 180 page book called: The 30 Minute Workday Book written by a top Internet marketer with real word experience.

It’s a Free book.  Page 108 was my favorite.

Here it is and it is FREE: Affiliate Marketing and 30 Minute Workday Day Book

Affiliate Marketing Is Really Easy

Affiliate marketing is actually quite easy once you know just a few simple “how to do it.”  The bigger problem is that most people approach it as a huge project instead of taking your marketing in little steps.

Think of Baby-steps.  Just put one foot in front of the other or in the case of affiliate marketing, learn the basic skills about affiliate marketing then apply this skill to your marketing strategy.

It’s not a big deal.

Just do the basics, learn, make mistakes, redo, learn again, and soon you will become a master.  However, don’t make the fatal mistake many amateurs make….They Try To Do TOO Much At The Same Time.

As mention, learn “what is affiliate marketing, how to get started and your on your way.  Again, not a big deal.

Next learn about online marketing and how to do online marketing.

Then put the two of them together.

Your now marketing online!

Well there’s a little more to than that…but you get the idea.

Simply Put One Foot In Front Of The Other

As mentioned, “Put One Foot In Front Of The Other” by become good at one social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and a host of others.  Once you master that “ONE” program, then and only then do you go to another.

Affiliate marketing is no different.  Master one strategy before going to another.  It is at this point that you put Blinders on and become laser focus on what needs to be done.

Affiliate marketing does have some major advantages.  Read those advantages in The 10 Rules article, but for right now let’s look at some basic starting points.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing 3Affiliate marketing is constantly evolving, and there will always be new marketing strategies to learn.  Just apply Internet Marketing and Affiliate Marketing together and you can make a boat full of money.

With affiliate marketing, you have a product to promote such as Nike Shoes.  When someone purchases Nike Shoes from your website, you make a commission.  Another program is to promote an Affiliate Marketing Companies product.  When someone purchases from your website, you make a commission.

These two programs are identical in the basic business model.  The only difference, is your a member of the Affiliate Marketing Company, while your are only a affiliate to, Nike in this case.

Your job is to promote that product.  This simplifies your day to day activities.  All you have to do is put together a successful online marketing campaign.

Commercial…Here’s how you do that!

Any good marketing campaign begins with a lead capture page.  Your capture page will collect email addresses, name and in some cases phone number.

One word of advice here:  Many people will give you a “false or bogus email.”  Plan on it and move on.  I have received hundreds of fake emails only to receive my Free Gift.  When trying to follow-up, no email was found.  It happens.

Your capture page is valuable since you will be building a list of potential customers on your autoresponder. Once you have the mailing list, you can send out information about sales, promote certain items or even solicit feedback from customers and that’s how the Big Boy’s Do It.  Nothing can be more simpler.

Marketing Research

Market Research or as I like calling it “Market Discovery” is all about finding a need and filling that need. It is important to address problems or issues so that customers or potential customers see you as a source of information. Customers will tell others if they received excellent service from you, and word of mouth advertising is the best kind.

A lot of people in affiliate marketing, do very little Market Discovery and then wonder why they aren’t getting visitors or traffic.

Market Discovery sounds like you must have a MBA.  It really is no big deal.

Marketing Discovery is nothing more than to know who you’re targeting your products or services to and fulfilling their wants or needs.

Who wears shoes?  There is your market.  Not exactly….too broad.  Who wears running shoes?  Much better.  Now target those people with your Nike product.

Now there is one more item you must know and do.  This is what most affiliate marketers don’t do, and that is to find the most appropriate Key Words.

Keywords, are words people search for on Google or Bing.  Search “running shoes” and your there.  Search “Nike running shoes” and your there.  Easy..well almost, but you get the idea.

A good research tool and one I use exclusive is Jaaxy.  It is a awesome tool and one you should have in your business kit.

Internet marketing is an ever-changing field, so you will continually need to research latest techniques.

Powerful Strategy

information overloadOffer answers to customers problems or issues on your site. Most visitors come to websites to find information or how to solve a problem.  If you are unwilling to provide answers, you may be losing potential customers. Giving them detailed information both satisfies their curiosity and increases the likelihood that they will buy from you.

This is where your research comes in.  What are people looking for?  What are their issues?  What can you do to help solve these problems and issues?  Know Your Target Audience…important!

You might not know it, but you are already equipped with all the resources you need in order to be successful in affiliate marketing. You don’t need elaborate software or a wild, far-fetched scheme, you only need yourself.

Do your homework, make mistakes, learn from mistakes, find a coach, get experience and work hard to pave your own path to being a successful affiliate marketer.

If you want to succeed in affiliate marketing you need to know what your competition is up to. You can check your competition’s site to see what they have and how they are marketing their products. You can get a good idea of the number of visitors they are getting, and that can help you determine how you are doing.

YouTube is another great source of information.  What are people posting.  Look at how many people have viewed the YouTube post.  If you see hundred of views. there is your information on what people are searching for.

Forums, Facebook Groups are excellent ways to get valuable information on peoples pains and solutions.

My favorite marketing strategy is Blogging.  What I like about a blog is that I only have to create a well written blog about my product, the product benefits, why my target audience needs the products, use a few well placed Keywords in the article and post it.

That article will be there for years and years.  I never have to touch it again.  In fact many successful affiliate marketers are receiving commissions from articles they wrote years ago.

Your site will rank higher in search results if you keep updating your blog every week with fresh content. You can easily accomplish this by writing about what you found in your Market Discovery.

Your blog should have good content addressing the problem, desires or wants your target market is looking for.  Also offer tips and advice.

Writing On Your Blog

It’s just about now that I start getting “push-back” on writing a blog post.

I hear: “I would like to write a blog, but I can’t write.” Or, “I’m not good at writing.”  Or, “I don’t know what to write about.”

All these are valid comments.

The last one first.  “I don’t know what to write about”

If you have a product, write about your product.  Write about the benefits, what it does, your experience, others experience…..Over time you will be writing like a professional.

“I’m not good at writing,” “I can’t write” Sorry for the comment…Baloney!

Anyone can write, anyone can become good.  It takes time, practice, learning and more practice.

Here’s an exercise:  What is your favorite movie?  Write two paragraphs about the movie.  What is the car you drive?  Write a few paragraphs about your car.  Do you have a pet?  Write a couple paragraphs about you pet.

Your Writing…easy wasn’t it

Now go back to those paragraphs read them.  Not good?  Rewrite.  Need more information?  Expand.  Missed the point?  Complete rewrite.

Remember, only you are seeing the paragraphs.  Do this on various subjects, and I guarantee you will soon find that writing is easy, in fact as you write one article, another one will pop in your head.

I typically will write two to three articles a week.  I don’t publish them, I just put down the idea. I leave those alone and go back to other articles I wrote last week and complete them. Or if the mood strikes me, I complete the two-three articles and publish.

Still need help?

How about having article written for you?  You determine what you want and the article will be written for you.  How many words?  Ask to write 300 words…500 words…1,000 words and it will be done.

How is this done?

It is called, the “Emerson Magic Content Machine.”

It is part of the Premium Academy package within Home Business Academy.

In fact most of this article was written with the Emerson Magic Content Machine.

Your Budget

A huge mistake many new marketers make is how to fund their business.  Any business requires some start-up money, and affiliate marketing is no different.

But the good news, you don’t need to take out a loan, or mortgage the house or offer your first born to fund your business.

I started my business for $125.  Actually $25 dollars and upgraded to the $125.

That was money well spent.  I made that back in 7 days.

Since then I have invested another $371 dollars in my education from money I made from the $125 dollar investment.

When someone tells me that they don’t have $125 to invest, I tell them, “Then you really need to start a part-time source of income.”  Or they may say, “I don’t have $125 dollars.”  These are just excuses!

I you want something bad enough, money is no object.

I look at it this way, they either need to do something to get the $125 (garage sale or sell their mountain bike) or their not motivated enough to start a home based business.

Again, excuses.

Also, keep your advertising budget from growing out of control. You shouldn’t spend your dollars on services that won’t properly benefit your business. Make sure that your money is being spent towards something that will benefit you.


If you want to get started the right way, reduce the learning curve, avoid mistakes and start earning an income in less time than most affiliate marketers, do as I did and begin for $25 dollars.  That won’t break your budget.
