Is this possible or not?

Make money with affiliate program or any "opportunity" is possible if you think in the business side and not only in the opportunity itself. Let's learn how to work the business side of affiliate programs:

If you're new here in the site, please take note this article is part of a section dedicated to learn about how to make extra money as a first action step to improve your personal finances.

First: What is an affiliate and affiliate programs?

An affiliate is a person or business that markets or sells the products or services from other companies (merchants) and earns commissions for that. Affiliate programs are the rights, obligations, conditions, and rules between the affiliate and the company. That's it.

Is truly possible to make money with affiliate program?

If you think about it, many companies have sales agents and they earn money mainly from sales' commissions and this works for both (the Co. and the agent), so the short answer should be: yes is possible. But let's go more in detail into the e-commerce field and how this business works online.

This affiliate marketing case study describes how a novice working part-time used Site Build It! to create an affiliate web site that achieved $49,000 in sales in just over a year. His second site achieved more than $308,000 in sales for one merchant. He earns a commission on that. He spends nothing on advertising. To learn from this case study, click here.

What is the called "business side" of affiliate programs?

What I call business side is nothing more the different angles businesses have:

  • Product or service.
  • Team.
  • Demand.
  • Supply.
  • Competition.
  • Marketing strategy (price, promotion, place, etc.).
  • Business system and organization.
  • Financial aspects.
  • Risks.
  • Realization schedule.

If you analyze Rupert's case study from the business perspective, what SBI! allowed him to do was plan and execute the above mentioned points by giving him the appropriate tools to do it.

He planned his business carefully thinking about what he already knew, researching the market, how to attract traffic (market) his website, he invested time and little money but invested anyway, etc.

In short: He applied the same process that big and small successful businesses apply, the difference is that he applied it at a different scale and taking advantage of the information that is available on the internet. He didn't focus only in make money with affiliate program, he created a business.

Then, why many people fail?

Simply because they don't know how businesses work. They think about: opportunity, easy money, little or no work, make money without time or money commitment. Scammers take advantage of this way of thinking and fool people to buy their "secret formulas" or "ultimate solutions" to make money and get rich quick.

In the case of affiliate programs, people who fail usually are focused mainly in:

  • The product or "opportunity" characteristics
  • How easy is to make money (because is wonderful and practically sells itself)

Bottom line: People fail because they consider only one or few aspects (i.e. product) that make a business work and forget the rest.

Here's another explanation about common mistakes of affiliate marketers.

So, if you want to make money with affiliate program, then create a real business helped by a functional website not only a website focused in the final part of the selling process (the order).
