Affiliate Marketing - Why it's the BEST way to Passive Income
You don't have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream. - Michael Dell
Word of Mouth - The FREE Advertisement
I had once gone to meet an acquaintance of mine, a Physiotherapist at his clinic. He was busy in a session, hence I sat there in his chamber waiting for him to come.
As I sat there, I looked around and was surprised to see that the clinic was full of patients.
I had not seen any advertisements of his clinic and nor had I seen him marketing his services. Then how come his clinic was full of patients. I wondered.
As he came out of his session and sat in his chamber, he looked at me and saw my inquisitive face.
"What happened? Why are you looking startled?", he asked.
"Where do you advertise your services that you get so many clients?", I asked.
"I have thousands of salesmen marketing my services for me throughout the city", he quipped.
He knew I was confused, from the look of my face. So he continued, "You see, every satisfied client that goes out of my clinic talks to a few of his friends, family members and acquaintances. Then whenever any of them needs a Physiotherapist, me and my clinic is the first thing that comes to their mind. My marketing is done".
"You see, that's called the word-of-mouth. It's a very powerful marketing medium and most professional business thrive on it. In fact, most of the consumer durables purchases that we make are also because somebody suggested a specific product. Isn't it?"
As I walked out of his clinic, I was thinking of the amount of business that people like me would have generated for this Clinic and any such products and service we have referred.
When Word of Mouth Makes You Money, it becomes Affiliate Marketing
Now imagine, if every one of these businesses that you had referred started paying you a percentage of the sales they made because of you, as a commission!
How much money would you be making?
What if, we put a framework around this entire "word of mouth" thingy and structure it to generate a consistent flow of income?
That's AFFILIATE MARKETING, for you.
And guess what. This framework helps you to do the work once and it helps you generate sales time and time again.
That's PASSIVE INCOME, for you.
To put all of this into perspective, I use a pagebuilder for most of my blogs and websites and I am super impressed with it. I simply love it and wouldn't trade it for anything else.
I have made thousands of dollars as commission recommending this page builder (Thrive Architect). I can do it because I cannot stop talking about it.
The only difference is that instead of talking, I write (One of the key elements in the framework).
