Affiliate Marketing seems to be everywhere when you are on
the internet, but what does it really mean? Sometimes it seems
obvious by just defining the two words individually but when you
put them together, they seem to take on a whole new meaning,
especially when you are relating them to the internet.
Affiliate Marketing is defined as a powerful marketing
method that is utilized on the internet. Affiliate Marketing
Campaigns promote internet businesses by paying
affiliates for every subscriber, visitor, customer or sales
that visit their website. It is performance based.
Affiliate Marketing is having an online or internet based
marketing strategy that uses one website to drive traffic
to another website.
Online Marketing is the best way for companies interested
in reaching far and wide, a global audience, rapidly and
Affiliate Marketing is like having a sales force that is working
around the clock, 24/7. What is interesting with both the
company and the affiliate, the affiliate is motivated to sell the
“products” and the company only pays when things are sold.
This again is performance based.
The typical affiliate marketing based payment was based on
about a 20% up to possibly a 50% pay on the products. This
meant that the affiliate really had to perform on a scale with
a large number of customers for their efforts to pay off or
have a product that was a big ticket item, so the payment
to the affiliate is bigger.
Within the last couple of years, some of the the successful
companies have realized that the affiliate payments were
on the low side, so they have turned it around and are
beginning to pay out 100% commissions.
Empower Network with its co-founders, David Wood and
David Sharpe both realized from their prior experiences in
internet marketing, that the commissions paid out by
many companies were quite low and they both had to
work hard to come away with anything like decent pay.
When they put together all their ideas and thoughts
in the preliminary stages of Empower Network, they
both wanted to pay out 100% commissions but then
had to figure out how to go about doing it. Both of
them, even though they are the co-founders, make
their money the same way all the affiliates do, by
getting out there and selling the products of Empower
My Lead Systems Pro is another company that has begun
to pay 100% commissions on their mastery program. The
founders of MLSP, Brian, Norbert, and Todd have put
together a company that is not a biz op (business operations)
company but rather a company that has a platform of learning
and tools to have the marketers learn the basics of internet
This gives the potential marketer and even the experienced
internet marketer a true understanding of how and why
the internet operates in relationship to the business
details. Most influential marketers today have either begun
their successful career with MLSP or realized how important
a good basic understanding of the process was needed, and
MLSP provided this important avenue.
Another company that truly began the understanding of
attraction marketing within internet marketing was
Magnetic Sponsoring. Mike Dillard can almost be called
the grandfather of Attraction Marketing but he is not old
enough to be a grandfather.
Magnetic Sponsoring is a program or company that has
many facets to it, but its main claim to fame in the internet
marketing arena is its understanding of the importance of
applying attraction marketing.
Check out each one of these companies plus any others that
might be interesting and helpful. Make some decisions based
on what you can get from the company but also from what you
can give to the company. You and I both have a lot to offer.
It would be well worth anyone’s time, if you are at all
interested in Internet Marketing or Affiliate Marketing
to check out these companies that I have mentioned or
any other reputable company and check them out
thoroughly. There are certainly some very good companies
that utilized the internet but there are also some companies
that are less than accurate in the advertisement of their wares.
There are no real shortcuts to making good money with any
company on the internet. It is going to take some strong effort
on your part, but if a company has great training materials, a good
compensation plan and a system that can be duplicated, then
your potential for success is going to be very good.
With purpose, desire, and determination along with a viable plan,
there is absolutely no reason why you can’t be one of the truly
successful people who uses the internet for success and a real life!
Our willingness to take risks and trust in each other brings
meaning and joy to our journey.
