Looking to make some extra dough without going out and doing any physical labor? Want to be your own boss but not have to leave the comfort of your home office (or your bed)? Do you want to make some money without having to step out into the harsh light of day?
Well, if you identify with any of these statements for whatever reason whether it be you are busy, a stay at home parent, or allergic to sunlight (cough, vampire, end cough), then you should look into affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways to make some potentially serious cash online. Allow me to enlighten you as to why you should be seriously considering affiliate marketing if you need to pay the bills or support your habit to lean toward retail therapy.
1. Work from home
If you are anything like me, you hate commuting. People are stupid enough, put them in a car on a highway and I swear their IQ goes down several points.
I enjoy being by myself in the comfort of my own home and in the comfort of my favorite pjs.
If you decide to delve into affiliate marketing as someone who already works from home or as a stay at home parent, you already have office space!
You don’t have to dress up and get in the car at an ungodly time in the morning to get to work by 9. You’re not stuck in a cubicle. You don’t have to make small talk with your coworkers. You just work from home.
You can literally work naked if you so desire (however I recommend covering up your webcam with a post-it if you choose to do so. Mark Zuckerberg does it. Are we so arrogant not to do it too?).
2. You’re your own boss
Do you have a problem with authority? Cool, be your own boss.
This way you aren’t answering to some yuppie in a corner office, you only have to answer to yourself and maybe your spouse if you’re hogging the family computer all day.
There is nothing more liberating than working for yourself.
You’re never late for work because you choose when work starts, you can give yourself vacation days whenever an opportunity to get out of town comes around, and you don’t have to worry about powering through your cold to save your sick days!
Work for yourself, I swear it’s so much easier.
3. You choose how much time you dedicate
If you are just looking to make a small amount of money to support your shoe habit or interest in golfing, then you don’t have to commit that much time to your affiliate marketing endeavors. I have found that the time you invest in affiliate marketing directly correlates to how much money you make.
So, if you are looking for a little fun money then you can easily do this on the side.
But let’s say you want to bail out on your office job. You can totally do that provided you invest enough time and effort to this new area of marketing.
