Why Are Affiliate Programs Better ?

Anyone who starts internet business feels confused about how he should start. He immediatelly
asks himself: what kind of business is the best for me ?

Well I can't answer this question personally. All I can do is to state some pointers to guide you:

1. No emplyees. There is no need to employ people to do the work for you.

2. Low costs. Most affiliate programs are free to join, you don't have to buy the product to sell it. Some programs have a upgrade option to make which makes your earninig capacity somewhat larger.

3. No storage. The merchant is responsible for the storage of product so you don't need to worry about space or storage costs

4. No shipping and handling. The merchant is also responsible for the product arrival, so there's also another cost you don't need to worry about and running around you won't have to do.

5. You don't deal with customer service. Another problem you don't need is customers who are not happy, if they are not happy the merchant deals with it.

6. No account keeping. There is no need to store customer information such as credit card details, addresses and phone numbers, this is yet another merchant responsibility.

7. No trading time for a wage. You can spend as little or as much time as you like selling your product. How much money you want to make is entirely up to you.

8. There are literally thousands of options out there for you. If you have a favourite niche market go for it, in my experience if it is a product that you are really happy with then it will be easy to sell.

If this doesn't clear things up for you, I don't know what will! What better way to make money online then to watch the company do all the hard work. All you have to do is promote, promote, promote, and when it is something you are happy with it's easy!

Affliate programs are not necessarily better... it's better to be a vendor than an affiliate

When most people start off earning a living online, they usually
begin by building AdSense sites or being an affiliate for other
people's products. That's great to start off with, but there are
some very compelling reasons why you should consider moving up to
selling your own product online.
