How Far Can You Take Afflilate Marketing?

How far can you really take it?

Is anyone a full time affilate marketer?

Or is it that you start there and go on to make your own products and ebooks?

    How far do you want to go. I know several six figure a month millionaire affiliate marketers.

    I've worked with companies that are essentially super-affiliates, pulling down several million a month promoting other companies' goods and services.

    Well, people started with affiliate marketing because there's little or no cost involved. So, I would say it's basically risk free. Nothing to lose really.

    When they have become more proficient making money with affiliate marketing, they will automatically be pushed by an irresistible desire to make their own product and become the merchant. You see, human beings are greedy in nature.

    So, you won't be able to stop yourself then, even if you've started as an affiliate and still making great living with aff marketing, you'll eventually create your own product..IMHO

      This does not apply to all.

      I have a close friend who has no website, no list, no staff, who hardly 'works' and he is doing six figures a month in sales with the whole lot automated and recurring over thousands of products.

      He has zero desire to be a merchant or create products. That would interrupt his lifestyle.

    mate there are 1000s of full time affiliate marketers, some making huge incomes from it..

    Personally I made a LOT of money pushing affiliate stuff.. was constantly in the top 5 of the friendfinder network Inc for around 3 years.(which eventually sold for just under a billion bucks)

    till I realised what a waste it was sending all these customers to someone else.. biggest lesson I learn't online..

    So yes you can take it very far

    just depends on how/what you want to do yourself..

    Cheers
