Most people dream of financial freedom. The joy of not going to work or having a boss makes them happy just thinking about it. No more long commutes or annoying colleagues. Such happiness…
The internet has given many people the chance to actually live such a lifestyle. It’s the internet dream. A cozy and convenient lifestyle that puts you ahead of the pack and separates you from the masses.
Can it really be done?
Of course, it can. If others have done it, so can you,
Yet, why do so few people do it? Why do so few people achieve any success online?
The answer to this is firstly a lack of focus. From the get-go, you must decide on one method that you will be using to make money. If you’re a beginner, the best way to do this will be with affiliate marketing.
You will be able to make money from other people’s products without any of the product creation headaches or customer service hassles.
If you promote digital products from ClickBank, you may get 50% to 75% commissions. Assuming you make $35 a sale and you make 3 sales a day, that’s an easy $105.
If you do this daily and get more and more sales, do you think you could achieve financial freedom? Of course, you can.
What if you promoted a coaching course that costs $1000 and you get a 50% commission. 1 sale will net you $500! It is currently being done. There are people spending big money online. You will just need to find them and promote high ticket items to them.
Many affiliates promote low ticket items believing that they will make more sales because these items are cheaper and will sell more. This is true.
However, it is much more difficult to sell 50 low priced items than 1 high priced item. The idea of making money from volume is a fallacy.
You’re better off expending your energy promoting the higher priced products and earning bigger commissions.
This may seem too good to be true. It may even seem like a scam. The reason for this is that many people are stuck in a mindset where hard work equates with earning money. So, the harder you work, the more you must earn and vice-versa, right?
Wrong. The fact is that hard work just makes you tired. You will need to work smart and work hard at working smart.
Affiliate marketing is conceptually easy. Promote someone else’s product and make money. Easy peasy. Yes?
Nope. You’ll need to learn and master a fair few concepts, skills and techniques to ensure that you make sales and earn commissions.
You’ll need to learn how to set up a blog or website. You’ll have to grasp the fundamentals of list-building and using an autoresponder. This will mean creating campaigns, adding emails to your sequence, building trust and giving value through email marketing, etc.
Lastly, and most importantly, as an affiliate, you will need to master traffic generation. Without this skill, all the rest will come to naught.
As you can see, there are a ton of things for you to learn, apply and master. It doesn’t come overnight so, you’ll need to shelve your plans for quitting your job or giving your boss a piece of your mind.
Once you have mastered the skills necessary and you’re making money, you’ll need to scale up your efforts by outsourcing whatever you can to speed up the journey to the coveted 4 or 5 figure monthly earnings.
Do not let this mountain of skills and techniques required deter you. The world is changing rapidly and being an employee is extremely stressful.
Those in the ivory towers and upper echelons of companies are getting massive pay raises while the man on the bottom is left to fend with scraps.
This is neither fair nor pleasant. The only way out of this never-ending cycle will be to master affiliate marketing and make your money online.
It is well within reach if you want it bad enough. This is a genuine method of making money. Cast your fears and doubts aside. Just go for it. Once you have done it, you can toss the job and the boss along with it.
