Are You Committing Affiliate Suicide?

Written by Gareth Longbottom

Whenever I get asked whyrepparttar number of people actually making money online from affiliate programs is so low, I have a number of answers ready.

I feelrepparttar 117224 one ofrepparttar 117225 main reasons isrepparttar 117226 way people are advertising their opportunity torepparttar 117227 prospect.

Just think about that for a moment, also think about how you are bringing prospects into your program or opportunity.

Far too many new affiliates tend to over-hype their opportunity inrepparttar 117228 hope of getting a new sign-up, some do it through miseducation aboutrepparttar 117229 opportunity and some through a deliberate effort to mislead to get an end result.

Unfortunately, this form of advertising will have a huge negative affect on their monthly online income and also onrepparttar 117230 way a prospect will react when they realize thatrepparttar 117231 opportunity is not all that was promised.

If this type of advertising and promotion describesrepparttar 117232 way you are promoting, I can predict your online future for you right now.................. don't have one!

That's right, you are wasting your time and money trying to build a successful online business in this way. If your business is MLM or network marketing based then you will soon find yourself dead inrepparttar 117233 water.

To build a solid residual income from one of those business types, you need to build a solid team of affiliates and members who trust you, and are prepared to follow you and your methods to get results.

More often than not you can not be successful unless your team or downline is successful, if you bring them in by promising more than you can deliver they will be gone before they earn you a cent.

If you want to build a successful online business in MLM or Network Marketing then you need to be honest and upfront about your program. If you have to make false claims about your opportunity to get people to sign-up, then you need to start looking for a new opportunity to join.

Find yourself a company that has been around for a while and I mean a few years not months. Find a company that is continuing to grow each year and that pays a good percentage of commission to it's affiliates per sale. I personally wouldn't go for any company that isn't offering over 30% commission per sale, unlessrepparttar 117234 price ofrepparttar 117235 product or service is high priced.

The Three Main Powers Of Network Marketing

Written by Kirk Bannerman

Network Marketing, 'MLM', and Multi Level Marketing are all terms that refer torepparttar same type of business model. This industry has had more than it's share of scumbag crooks and con artists that have used and abusedrepparttar 117223 concept. However, if you do your homework and get involved with a legitimate network marketing organization, this business model has exceptional income potential.

Network Marketing can produce outstanding results if you know a few simple concepts,repparttar 117224 understanding of which is critical to your success.

Network Marketing, MLM, and Multilevel Marketing are unlike franchises or conventional businesses in that they take advantage of all three ofrepparttar 117225 important, yet misunderstood principles of:

1) Leverage (of Time and Money) 2) Residual Income 3) Geometric Growth Through Duplication

Unfortunately these principles are not well understood by many ofrepparttar 117226 people that undertake network marketing. And that's just one of many reasons why so many fail at network marketing. There are lots of other reasons, and it would take volumes to cover them all. But this is one ofrepparttar 117227 more common ones. Because if you don't comprehend and believe in these principles, it's impossible to help others fully understand and appreciate them.

First, lets look at LEVERAGE:

Every successful person or business takes advantage of leverage. There are only 24 hours in a day and no matter how talented you are or how much you get paid per hour, if you don't take advantage of leverage you're limited byrepparttar 117228 number of hours in a day. As a side note, I have heard of cases where an occasional lawyer was billing more than 24 hours per day…but, I guess that’s another story. By learning to leverage your time, you can also benefit from a percentage of other people's efforts, and dramatically increase your income while creating more free time for yourself.

The unique and wonderful thing aboutrepparttar 117229 Network Marketing business model is that everyone hasrepparttar 117230 same opportunity to becomerepparttar 117231 'owner' of his or her own business - with a fraction ofrepparttar 117232 investment of time and money of a franchise or traditional business.

In network marketingrepparttar 117233 people atrepparttar 117234 top definitely have a vested interest in helping others on their team succeed.

Would you rather receive 100% of one person's efforts, or 5% ofrepparttar 117235 efforts of 100 people?

Obviously 100% of one is always only ONE. But 5% of 100 is FIVE. Not only willrepparttar 117236 total result with leverage almost always be amplified, but your income is not dependent on only one person. If your income is produced byrepparttar 117237 activities of many, it is much more dependable. Even if something unexpected or negative happens to one or more of those people, it only has a minor effect onrepparttar 117238 total production.

It's great to get paid while you're sleeping or away on vacation. That's one ofrepparttar 117239 many advantages of leveraging your time.
