What The Full-Time Affiliate Marketing Lifestyle Is Like

One of the biggest leaps that an affiliate marketer can make is to leave a steady day job for full-time affiliate work .

The decision-making process that surrounds the move to full-time affiliate marketing involves a complex analysis of personal finances, debt, current and projected affiliate income, and much more. There is no magic formula for deciding when to make the switch, but once you do, you can count on the following perks that only full-time affiliate marketers are able to enjoy.

For a more in-depth explanation, check out my post, What is Affiliate Marketing?. Always disclose your affiliate relationship(s) Make sure you let your readers know when you are using affiliate links. Read my post, Are You Disclosing Properly? for more. Focus on relationships first Affiliate marketing is all about trust. When a friend recommends a product to you, you listen. Not so much when a stranger does. (In fact, if you’re like me, it often makes you skeptical.) Be trustworthy and sincere in all you do online. This will lay the foundation for effective affiliate marketing. Focus on building traffic More traffic means more eyeballs and therefore more people who will potentially buy the product(s) you promote. Build your traffic, but make your traffic count by building trust first. Promote products you are already using When I began teaching others how to start their own blogs, it was a no-brainer to sign up as an affiliate with Bluehost since that’s the hosting company I was already using myself.
