I was wondering...
It seems to me that most of the successful full time marketers out there make most of their money from the products they create. While affiliate marketing is just extra income.
However, most of the courses I've read about "Getting started online fast" all seem to point new marketers to affiliate marketing FIRST, instead of doing it second as another stream of income.
Is this backwards advice and not really worth listening to?
I personally think it's necessary to create your own products, even if it's just a small freebie to start with to build up your list for affiliate marketing. But it should definitely be in the plan if you want to make a real income online.
So what do you think, should new marketers start with product creation or affiliate marketing?
