Here we would also like to dispel few myths associated with affiliate marketing.
3 Myths of Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing only benefits the company whose product/service you are selling.
Yes, of course, it benefits the company, but by promoting its products, an affiliate gets benefitted too. An affiliate is not a salesperson working for a company, he/she is an entrepreneur with the freedom to make his own strategy and chart his own course. There are no thresholds that need to be met. But yes, the mantra to get more benefits is “sell more, earn more”.
You don’t need to work in a very popular and lucrative niche to make affiliate marketing work. Affiliates can sell anythng.
Selling anything will require a significant investment of both – your time and your money. So, you should pick a niche where a buyer spends money on buying more than once, as you need recurring business.
Choosing most profitable niches for affiliate marketing like WordPress hosting will help you gain recurring profits as popular niches have lots of buyers and repeated buyers also. So, sell after recognizing the products and services that are worthy of promotion as per the target audience and other key factors.
