Starting an online business can be a daunting task especially if you feel you do not know anything about computers, HTML, website design, or search engine optimization. One kind of business that people start on the internet is called affiliate marketing.
What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is where you sell another company’s products or services for a percentage of the pie. There are many companies on the internet that provide you the tools to become an affiliate marketer. The best part of this equation is that those same companies do not want any part of your money. They just want YOU to make room on your website for their advertising. They do not require you to stock any product or inventory whatsoever.
Some of the big guns that offer affiliate marketing programs are as follows:
- Office Depot
There are other affiliate programs that do not require you to have your own existing website but rather provide you one once you join the program. Some of the new smaller companies that offer affiliate marketing programs and give you your own website include the Lighthouse Marketing System (LMS). LMS is an affiliate program that gives you your own website to market over the internet. The product of LMS is an e-book that shows the customer how to get free leads for his network marketing business by utilizing the power of the internet.
The LMS affiliate program has revolutionized the network marketing industry. Your affiliate customer can use the techniques in this e-book so that he can generate his own leads for his multi-level marketing business strictly online. The benefit to you, the affiliate marketer, is that you have full resale rights to this e-book and collect the entire 100% of the proceeds. How many affiliate programs do that? LMS also operates as a two-tier program in which you sign up a distributor under you and you collect a percentage of that person’s monthly subscription.
You as the affiliate marketer can use this program to market the e-book to customers who are distributors of their own respective MLM company. In addition, the leads you generate on your own LMS website can be used to market your own MLM company.
Your own LMS affiliate website can be a stand alone business opportunity itself especially if you are a newbie to online marketing. It can also be an added weapon in your marketing arsenal to convert those leads you generated into members of your own downline in which ever MLM company you are a with.
