Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money from home, but is it really a viable longterm business model. It’s hard to really speculate on that. Many people have mad a good living from affiliate marketing, but it seems that the most successful affiliates always transition their business into something else.
Most of the top affiliates in the world don’t even make most of their money from affiliate marketing. Generally, they are information product publishers. They are the people that actually create the ClickBank products that most other affiliates promote. That’s not to say that the product publishers/vendors don’t make a killing promoting affiliate offers to the lists they’ve built from launching their own products, they do make quite a bit of money; However, the majority of their income usually still comes from the products they own.
So should you start publishing your own information product? Maybe, but that’s not what this article is about.
Instead, I’m going to address another popular longterm business model that is often spawned out of a bit of affiliate success, and that’s local business marketing.
