Affiliate Marketing Is A Great Work From Home Business With Low Start Up Costs

As I have stated in many of my posts, Affiliate Marketing is ever-growing in its popularity. With today’s economy, more people are jumping on the Affiliate Marketing band wagon in hopes of making money online. One of the main reasons is that Affiliate Marketing is becoming so popular is because it really is considered to be a low-risk and it allows people to make money online, from the comfort of their home or where ever they have online access. Another reason Affiliate Marketing is growing in popularity, it offers the opportunity for just about anyone to start their own online business with relatively low start-up costs.

I have written many posts about Affiliate Marketing and what it’s all about. Basically, you promote quality products, services and/or programs. You make money when your site visitor makes a purchase on the merchant’s site after clicking on your affiliate link. It’s a very simple process and if done correctly, it can be very profitable.

So in this post, I am going to go over some advantages of why Affiliate Marketing is a great option for working from home and making money online.

Minimal/Low Start Up Costs

Affiliate Marketing is considered to be a business, you will need to check with your state and/or county to see what licensing is required. The cost for obtaining the licensing varies but it’s typically low

Since Affiliate Marketing is done online, so you don’t need to open a brick and mortar store. You start your Affiliate Marketing business from the comfort of your home. So for the most part, all that is needed is an internet connection and a computer (laptop or desktop).

Now if you are new to Affiliate Marketing, then you will need to learn it from one source or another. There is an abundant amount of free information on the internet about Affiliate Marketing and how to do it. A lot of it is very helpful however (in my opinion) its incomplete and can be misleading. As I have stated in my previous posts, I believe that you should obtain some training from someone (such as Success With Anthony) who has been successful at it so you too can be successful. Where ever you obtain your Affiliate Marketing training, the amount  you spend to obtain the knowledge you need should be minimal, less than $75.

For various reasons, I recommend that you purchase your own web hosting, so that you may set up your own site. This is because you want to ensure that you web host can handle your traffic. You also want the security of having your Affiliate Marketing site not mysteriously disappearing one day which can happen with the free hosting. Additionally, you want to be able to create a unique Affiliate Marketing website, one that separates you from the rest.  Purchasing web hosting is also very low-cost.

 0 Inventory

One of the best things about Affiliate Marketing is, you do not need to carry any inventory. As noted above, you promote quality products, services and/or programs. So inventory is not a problems since you want your site visitors to click on your affiliate links. Since there is no inventory, you have no costs.

0 Employees

With Affiliate Marketing, the only employee is you. It’s your business, so all the work get’s done by you. So other than your time, there is no cost.

Now there may be times where you don’t have he expertise of certain aspects your Affiliate Marketing business. That is where you rely on the knowledge of your trainer, assuming you have opted for that. There may be other times when you feel you don’t have time for some things in which you can put it off until another day. You may also outsource the work, for a cost which is typically very minimal.

Minimal Customer Service

As noted above, Affiliate Marketing does not require having any inventory. So, you really don’t have to deal with Customers. Now there is some Customer Service, as noted in my post Customer Service, Its Important Even in Affiliate Marketing, however it’s very minimal in which there is no cost to you.



As you can see by the examples above, it’s inexpensive to start an Affiliate Marketing business. So, if you would like to start your own business and work from home with Affiliate Marketing, give it a shot. It could be the best decision you’ll ever make.

**On a side note, Success With Anthony is the perfect place to learn everything about Affiliate Marketing. That’s how I learned it.

Thats it for now, until my next post…
