Making Your OWN Business From Affiliate Programs

Written by Joe Bingham

WHY MAKE IT YOUR OWN BUSINESS? No matter how you look at it, if you're someone else's affiliate, you are, forrepparttar most part, helping them build their business and not your own. Unless, that is, you take other's affiliate programs and re-sell items and MAKE YOUR OWN business out of them. Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with helping to build another's business while being paid a commission to do so. However, think of it this way. Have you seenrepparttar 102542 cartoons where a newborn chick comes out of its shell and looks up atrepparttar 102543 first animal it sees and says 'mama' even though it's a dog or something and not it's real mother? If you refer people directly to an affiliate web page with your advertising, who is it they are establishing a connection with? That's right,repparttar 102544 affiliate program, NOT with you. Now, if your advertising leads directly to YOUR web site for YOUR business where you then make a recommendation to affiliate programs or re-sell items you believe are valuable, who are they establishing their first connection with? That's right, YOU! Sure, as they purchase items or join affiliate programs they will identify withrepparttar 102545 owners of those products or programs, but they will always remember YOU asrepparttar 102546 one that sent them there. Which means they will also remember you and your site as a resource. Now doesn't that sound like a better way to do things?
