Resources I recommend for learning more about this industry include 21 Days to a VA Biz and The Bootstrap VA. Note that both of these books focus on starting your own virtual assisting business rather than working for a company (such as the ones above). For more in-depth training, you can enroll in the 30 Days or Less to Virtual Assistant Success eCourse. It will teach you exactly how to start your own VA business, what you need, what to charge, and also where to find clients.
The only real difference between a ‘regular affiliate’ and an affiliate using a ‘done for you’ funnel is, you don’t have to create an optin page or an email followup sequence. And the backend sales are made automatically. Either through the system itself or by leveraging a dedicated phone sales team.
Absolutely. Affiliate marketing is a viable and legitimate way to monetize your blog or website. Tens of thousands of merchants run affiliate programs and will pay you a commission for sending them sales. However, there are some scams centered around affiliate marketing. You’ll find information on how to spot affiliate scams – and avoid them – here.
One of the cool things about services, for instance, is that often there are recurring commissions. For instance, I make roughly 20% a month every time I refer someone to Sumo or Visual Website Optimizer – which are both services that I use religiously.
You see, the secret to having a TRUE “income at will” business is to have a sales funnel that let’s you literally multiply every single dollar for every sale you make. It’s kinda like having a property that pays you rental income every month and also increases in value over time, having a sales funnels is pretty much like this. Your goal is to have a systematic way to enrol clients, premium customers, patients and leads that buy your products and services.
Performance marketing is what it is. An industry that rewards the deserving and punishes the lazy, the unworthy, the bullshit mongers and the just plain wrong. It’s everything I wanted but couldn’t find in a 9-5.
I recently started working in network marketing with a natural hair care line. It has transformed my life, by giving me my confidence back. I was losing my hair and I didn’t know what to do. I’d been to the Dr and told it wasn’t a thyroid issue, but they couldn’t tell me what WAS causing it. My good friend introduced me to amazing products, that in a matter of months changed my life. My husband is now using the products for his “gaining face” (not receding hairline) issue. Lol.
How neat! This makes me a bit more interested in maybe starting my own blog. Maybe for the wrong reasons though. (; Plus I’d probably have to spend time building a trusting reader base before I can start recommending them products. Hm, maybe someday… (I know, I know — “abolish someday”)
10 Childcare There’s great potential to earn extra money from looking after kids, but you’ll need to adore children (not just your own), have boundless energy and patience and in many cases must satisfy Ofsted criteria.
Most of the Amazon alternatives are going to be niche by niche. For instance there’s a golf ball site that I can affiliate for and make 15-20% commissions vs the 4-7% on Amazon. The nice thing about Amazon however is the fact that just about everyone uses it, and its so easy to buy something.
