Yeah, I love clickbank.
This is perhaps the most unusual post on my blog. If you have been following me for quite sometime, you know that I don’t post anything unrelated to internet network marketing industry. However, today, I try to do something special. I want to post something that is totally unrelated to network marketing. I decided to post my Clickbank cheque.
Now, the reason I decided to post is not due to “ego” or “bragging rights” and I’m not some sort of gurus, I’m just the normal person just like you. It is something inside me that I want to share with you long time, if you ever decide to enter affiliate marketing as oppose to internet network marketing.
Affiliate marketing if done right, with proper education and mindset, it is very lucrative. I know because some of my friends are earning from clickbank full time. However, I’ve personally seen friends around me whom want to start affiliate marketing fall into this vicious cycle.
Buy ebooks/course -> Learn -> Apply -> No Result -> Buy more ebooks/courses
This cycle repeats. Some of my friends are seminar junkie. They willing to pay a lot to attend these kind of seminars and ended up paying a lot more yet did not apply. Now, I’m not saying these 2 groups of people are not good, just that, affiliate marketing as in other form of online business or internet network marketing need focus, correct mindset and proper education. And then work with a plan. Not jumping around.
It is also the same case for internet network marketing. I’ve seen people company-hop and ended up saying that the industry and people are bad or scam. So, back to affiliate marketing, one can really see money coming from affiliate efforts if they are realistic and know what they are doing. I’m not going into details of affiliate marketing here but there are many form of model that I can pursue within affiliate marketing.
However, one thing that I need to advice newbie or who did not see any result yet in affiliate marketing is, that world is a dog-eat-dog world. You gotta be creative, aggressive and have a proper plan of attack to see any returns. And if you are not the vendor, then prepare to work alone because in reality you are alone. You did not have anything to leverage on.
Of course, you may join some mastermind group locally or online to bounce ideas from fellow marketers, but bear this in mind, nobody will willingly tell you which niche or keyword they use to profit. They may or will share the techniques that are working for them. However, not all techniques will work for your niche or industry.
Although the barrier of entry to affiliate marketing is significantly lower than internet network marketing, the work behind it is a lot as compare to internet network marketing where you have a group to leverage on. So, whatever it takes, depend on you.
With that, I wish you good luck on either affiliate marketing or internet network marketing route. Ciao
