It’s funny how things go around & come around; back in January 2009 I’d just started learning how to make money online with affiliate marketing, and I was excited about the possibilities of using the internet to earn money whilst I sleep, so that I could focus more time on my family.
I have to be very honest – I struggled. The biggest struggle was staying focused enough on one thing – there were, and now even more so, so many opportunities out there to earn a decent income, it was hard to settle on one thing.
I took a high end course on affiliate marketing, which to this day still contains a huge amount of valuable information, even though Google has changed it’s colors more times than a chameleon in the time between then and now.
Which brings me to now. You see, I’m still doing affiliate marketing, but I’m doing it incidentally, rather than focusing on it full time. At the moment, I’ve got other irons in the fire which can also generate income, but whatever business method I choose on the internet, I know that the best business model is one in which I do something once, and get paid over and over again thereafter.
In one sense, I’ve come full circle in terms of the methods I’m using to generate income online. As a business owner of a marketing company myself, I know how challenging it can be to generate consistent cashflow throught the financial year, and affiliate marketing provides me with a very helpful residual income to help pay for my ongoing business expenses.
So, how does affiliate marketing work? The nearest analogy I have, is when an actor or author gains ongoing royalties, or commissions based on work that they have created.
The methods used to generate income are surprisingly easy to do (and don’t require as much in the way of technical or computer skills as you might think).
The reason for the post title is that I’ve just stumbled across two young guys – who were teenagers when they made their first 6 figures online (in less than a year). They were both struggling undergrads (in fact, it seems like one was a college drop-out).
