Easy Money: Everyone Has it Backwards

I just saw this on the Warrior Forum, for the umpteenth zillionth time, being regurgitated without any thought, about how to make easy money:

1. Start a blog
2. Collect email addresses
3. Find products to promote as an affiliate

I'll guess 99%+ of Warrior Forum members doing this are making squat.

No one mentions flipping this on its head, where the real money is made - being the product seller.

1. Create a product
2. Have a ton of affiliates promote it

The stopping point for many is they don't have a product, don't know how to create a product, and just give up and think they will go the "easy" route of being an affiliate.

For starters the "easy" affiliate route means you have to get traffic. Then, with your traffic, hopefully converted into email subscribers, you then GIVE IT ALL AWAY to someone with a product.

The product seller, on the other hand, gets free traffic from affiliates. Free customers too. And they build they own list of confirmed buyers, which is probably better than the affiliate's list.

Consider 100 affiliates each making 2 referrals for a $20 product with a 25% commission. Each affiliate makes $10. The product seller makes $3000.

I don't know. What would you rather have? $10 or $3000?

For less work.

And to build a better list.

Yes, there are downsides to being the seller, with possible customer support issues. Still. $10 or $3000?

I have a WSO where I show you how to create information products for free. Not only that, but someone else creates all the content for you. For free. This isn't hard to do.

You create the product for free, then list your product on various sites to sell, and start contacting all those affiliates to promote your product for you.

It is called Piggyback Marketing and you can get the WSO by going here ...
