…The Lil’ Idea That Makes Affiliate Marketing Huge…

Sep 29th 2013 at 10:36 AM shopperThere’s an old sales adage about how people shopping for shovels don’t really want a shovel. Cause really what’s the purpose of a shovel, other than to dig dirt or move it. So I guess you could say what people shopping for a shovel really want is a hole.

What made me think of this is the rise in people advertising Affiliate Marketing systems around the internet. The evolution of traditional network marketing as it expands on the web, affiliate marketing combines the principles of basic network marketing and the idea of residual income.

It’s a beautiful synergy to be honest, because it allows most people with internet access the ability to begin building a residual income. And residual income, traditionally stock and real estate investments, is the little known secret that keeps growing the wealth of the wealthy exponentially.

Make Your Marketing Effective

But for these programs to truly be effective in building you a permanent residual income they have to involve affiliate companies and products relevant to the market desires. An important factor in choosing the right affiliate marketing system is understanding the items available to you to collect commissioned sales on.

If they are products pertaining to meeting the demand for internet or technology needs, you are on the right track. Programs based around items that require real time participation (ie- movie store subscriptions, food/restaurant vouchers, physical items that require shipping) may prove to be difficult when you deal with international contacts or people with limited access to larger commercial chains.

The moral of the story? Make sure the man who comes to you with a nail and a piece of wood leaves with a hammer, not a saw, a retractable screwdriver and a tool belt. Its the guaranteed way to make sure he comes back to you when he needs that shovel.
