That folks is Newbie Dilemma.
And if you are trapped in this dilemma, then you need to follow what I call "Internet Model".
There are basically four things you need if you are going to make it online in long run:
1. Your own domain - Build traffic for life...sell whatever you want, promote whatever you want by creating entry pages on your domain to your replicated web sites, or for your own unique products.
2. Professional design - Especially your home page. First impression from visitors is simply this...it's great, or it sucks. Your site must be client centered and have prospect capture forms. This allows your visitors to tell you want they want and join your in-house list(s).
3. Listserver - Your in-house list or ezine to communicate your offers, products and services to list members. Follow-up is mandatory.
4. Traffic generating tools - Leverage your time and build a steady flow of thousands of visitors per month to your domain.
Without those four, you are wasting your time and you will not be able to compete with people who are taking those steps.
By following this model, you will have ability to effectively sell or promote whatever products and programs you want.
Plus, your time, effort and energy will never be wasted if something happens beyond your control and one of your affiliate or MLM programs bites dust.
How many of you have a closet full of skeleton affiliate and replicated web sites? Imagine if all that time you had been routing that traffic to your domain and had built up a mailing list over years and months.
You would probably be doing better right now with most recent program you just joined...if you had been leveraging your traffic generating efforts.
Nowadays, MLM and affiliate programs grow so rapidly because of nature of Internet in fostering powerful communication tools..like ezine.
And that rapid growth happens because of people who are following model. When window of opportunity opened up, they were ready for it and had means and ability to take MASSIVE action.
Following this model is not an easy task. It will take hard work, determination, an operating budget, a certain level of technical skills, and as much training as needed depending on your level of skills and abilities.
I once had a prospect tell me sarcastically that only people who make money are ones at top. I replied and asked her "what are you doing to get there?"
