Today we will have a reality check. Are there benefits to affiliate marketing? Based on my experience, there are several recipient categories of benefits; and they range from you as an affiliate marketer, to the vendor of the products that you promote and ends up right in the laps of the consumer buying those products and services.
My added hypothesis is that the benefits can and do extend to the economy as a whole. You have to believe that you are here for a good and valid purpose to help people solve their problems. What you do will make a positive difference in the 3 lives we just mentioned and the economy as a whole, your city, the vendor’s city and the city of the buyer.
You are an important part of the global economy. You are not tied down to a brick and mortar store, to only get local customers and those traveling through.
The Affiliate Marketer
As an affiliate marketer, you will receive benefits based on your contribution to the needs and problems of your fellow man. Some benefits will be tangible. We will look at the intangibles first.
First of all, you will have to grow as a person. You are paid what you are worth and it will be a part of your business plan to provide the training you need to grow as a person. You will also budget to increase your business skills. These can vary based on the niche you are in, but are very important. As you grow; your worth will become greater, and you will find that your rewards will grow to match the person you have become.
You will be able to live the purpose for which you have been created. We are all here for a purpose and it is up to each one of us to build our life on that purpose. This will give you a sense of well-being and being at peace with your life.
You are who you are now because of what you have done up until now. If you want more and better for the future, you will have to do more, you will have to change what you are doing today. Your life should give you the greatest feeling of worth, contentment and peace in your own mind.
Of course there are the tangible things as well. These are the ones we most like to think of, but I say; they shouldn’t be your number one driving force. The rewards you receive will be commensurate with the number of people you help to find a solution to their want, need or problem.
But the rewards can be great. Here; however, the rewards are individualized by each person based on their life goals. What will your dreams be?
Will it be to travel the world and run your business from the beaches of the world? Will it be a shiny sports car that you have had a picture on your wall of, for years? Will it be the mansion with the circular drive, amazing water features and a pond in the back 40 that you have stocked with fish? Will it be a bank account so large that you need several banks just to hold your petty cash.? Will it be investments in other businesses, real estate and or precious metals. Each of the listed dreams here are a reality, if you really want to do this; and if you want to grow as a person, beginning now!
All the statements above hold true for the vendor. Like you the vendor is a person filled with a purpose in life, a need to grow as a person and dreams of all the things that they would like to provide for their family and chosen charities or groups. As you drive more customers to the vendor, he can afford to invest in growing as a person, building his or her business acumen.
They too will have the means to support their dreams. They will be able to expand their business, giving even more to the community. They can invest back into their businesses to create even more and better products to meet even more needs; or provide solutions to more problems. It is a win, win situation for both parties. However; It is on the third group, our customers or clients, that everything hinges though.
The customer should stand to reason as the primary recipient of benefits. It is those benefits, and the value they place on them, that determines how much reward we will be able to receive. The customer should benefit from their product or service purchased.
You should have solved a problem for them that makes their life, their business, or their education move forward to a higher plane. The customer should be given so much value that they will want to come back and do business with you over and over.
If you only look to sell as many widgets as you can, you will sell a lot perhaps; but they will not be back for more and your sales and profits will drop. If you seek to create value in each product or service that you promote; the customers will become promoters for you. They will tell friends, family and even recommend you to strangers.
The customer will receive a desired outcome to their problem. This can help them to grow personally, make their business run more efficiently, or provide them with a means to one of their dreams. Helping other people get what they want is the quickest and surest way to create wealth for yourself. Make Your Customer First.
As the customer’s problem is solved, they, their family, their company or their community; depending on their role will benefit. Which brings us back to my hypothesis that the overall economy will benefit when you become a great affiliate marketer.
The Overall Economy
As I stated at the top of the article, I believe in the hypothesis that when you are a great affiliate marketer, you can have a positive effect on the world economy. Lets start to look at reasons why.
First, as the vendor makes more sales,they will need to grow their business, this will affect any suppliers they have. It will also cause them to need to hire more employees to keep up with the demand.
These people in turn will spend more and create more growth in the local community. Local business will benefit from the increased dollars in the local economy. Like restaurants, mom-and-pop shops and service businesses.
As an internet marketer, you market is the world; so you can make these same advances in communities around the world. As it grows around the world all touched communities benefit. You will have a reach to many countries, many of which are poor, but can see growth from the business generated in their area.
And as you begin to live your dreams, you can affect even more, the people making those dream cars, dream boats and homes. As you travel the world, you will spend money in many places adding to the vibrancy of the local economy. We will have the capability of improving our daily lives, the lives of our families, the lives of the people associated with our business and with the people we meet and interact with on our travels.
We have the ability to positively affect the entire economy of the world. We just need to want to help enough people to solve their problems, with products and services.
