Why Is Affiliate Marketing So Easy But Yet So Hard?

Updated: Dec 5, 2019

Affiliate marketing is easy when compared to other business models, but it’s still a business and as such it requires work, dedication, and patience.

In this video, I explain how affiliate marketing works:

It does NOT:

  • Require you to come up with a product idea

  • Manufacture it

  • Ship it

  • Store it

  • Give customer support

  • And all the other stuff that many other businesses need

If you want to see the definition of affiliate marketing you can go to Wikipedia: Affiliate marketing - Wikipedia

So, the risk is low and you only have one main goal - marketing! That’s it.

The issue with affiliate marketing is not affiliate marketing, but the expectations you have of it.

And sometimes it’s your fault but not always…

What I mean is we want to see results as quickly as possible and that’s understandable.

But, the reality is that any business, especially if it’s your first one is going to require time, energy, and money to grow.

Yes, it will create passive income for you eventually, but first, you have to put in the work.

Think of it as a baby, at the beginning you only invest time, energy and money on that baby, growing him for years without him giving you anything back.

Until one day he grows and is able to support you back (I hope you're taking care of your mama and papa ;)

Now the reason it’s not entirely your fault is because of the way many marketers market it.

They do it because it’s much easier to get your attention that way than telling you “Want to start a business and grow it for 2–3 years?” (Yea I don’t know if everybody is ready for that commitment, and that’s ok).

Now that you understand it’s not a button you click on and make money off you can decide if your serious and want to learn how to build and operate that type of business for the LONG-TERM or not.

Also, the beauty of affiliate marketing is that it’s the best way to learn the online business world and then integrate it into other business models you might develop in the future.
