Why Should You Become an Affiliate Marketer?
Affiliate marketing has certainly been growing over the years with about 5.7% of big affiliate marketers starting in 2006 versus 13.9% in 2012.
Most affiliate marketers are between 31-40 according to surveys and target B2C products (business to consumer) rather than B2B (business to business).
91% of these affiliate marketers choose e-mail marketing as their primary method of contacting customers while 60% work from home.
Whats really interesting though is the salary. While nearly 40% of affiliate marketers earned below $5K in 2013 and use it as a secondary source of income, the top earners surveyed earned as much as $500K (this accounted for 3.3% of marketers).
50% were earning at least $10K a year, whereas about 20% were on $50K+. Not bad! (Data from Three Ladders Marketing).
More data from Webprom shows us that UK businesses earned 14 billion GBP in 2013. This was up 15% from 2012, showing more growth still.
The bottom line? Digital marketing is a highly lucrative area that appeals particularly to young entrepreneurs. Theres a lot of money to be made and the industry is only growing with time.
Using affiliate marketing its possible to get very rich with zero up-front investment, zero creative process and zero marketable skills.
This might sound too good to be true but in fact there are plenty of examples of precisely this happening.
Look up affiliate marketing online and youll find a whole culture of people who have private jets and yachts, who travel around the world and who have almost celebrity like status online.
