Affiliate Business Explained This is the first of a series of special articles on building a profitable affiliate business. If you want to know how affiliate works and how to build a profitable affiliate business in the shortest time possible, this article series is for you. In this first article, you'll learn: - What is an affiliate business - Why it's the BEST business model EVER discovered. - 4 key benefits of affiliate. - Why everyone - whether you already have an existing business... or... you are completely new and looking at having your first own business - should have an affiliate business. On the next article, I'll reveal to you... - How to get started in building a profitable affiliate business - How to effectively market your affiliate products But before I get started, I'd like to acknowledge that the information I'm about to share with you in this article is based on an ebook authored by Sean Rasmussen-an affiliate expert who built an outrageously successful affiliate business and became financially independent in 3 years! (To discover my personal experience with Sean, please go to my blog following the link at the bottom of this article.) Now let's get right into the meat of this article. First... What Is Affiliate? Well, it's simply an online business model where you market and sell someone else's products instead of your own. For example, if you come across a book about investing which you think is great and very helpful for anybody who'd like to learn how to invest successfully, then you simply join its affiliate program and start to market the book on behalf of its author or publisher. When people buy the book through your marketing, you earn a commission. The commission rate varies from one affiliate program, or even product, to another... but typically you may expect a commission rate of 30-50%. If you think about it, affiliate business is truly the best business model EVER discovered-whether you already have an existing business and want to expand it or build a different line of business... or... you're completely new and want to start the first ever business of your own. Why? Because, first, you can set it up and get it running in a few minutes... you don't need to have a website (though it helps if you have one)... you don't need to have your own products... you don't have any upfront cost to pay (signing up affiliate programs is free)... and you have no financial risk whatsoever (I'll talk more about this in a moment)... And you can market and sell any products on the internet that have an affiliate program for you to join-there are literally a countless number of great products (and I mean great, not mediocre to average) existing and available on the internet. All you have to do is spend a little time surfing on the internet to find them out and join their affiliate programs. When you become more familiar with internet surfing, it becomes very easy and quick for you as you'll know exactly where to go and search for new, high quality products.
