Affiliate Marketing, sounds complicated – is it suitable for beginners with no experience?
This is a question I get asked frequently and, thankfully, it is a question that I have no difficulty answering.
Why is that?
Well, the question “is affiliate marketing for beginners” can be answered with a simple YES, but let me expand on that.
Once a person has some basic knowledge and experience of using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone, they can become a marketing affiliate.
Also, because the hours are flexible and worked to suit personal needs, affiliate marketing is a fantastic opportunity for beginners, whether they are teenagers, students, middle aged, retired, unemployed, those in full-time employment or those working part-time……
This does not mean it is super easy or some “get rich quick” scheme – if that’s what you are looking for, best look somewhere else as you’ll not find it here at Powerful Affiliate.
Affiliate Marketing is an online business, which means it is conducted over the internet, and one of its advantages is it costs very little to setup and get started. Unlike an offline business where setup costs, premises, stock etc. can be very high.
However, like an offline business, the marketing affiliate working online must be committed, focused, hardworking and determined to succeed. And, likewise, the degree of success will be down to the individual marketing affiliate and the amount of quality work put into the business.
Would It Suit Retired People?
Retirement need not mean relying solely on savings or a pension for income.
A retired person probably won’t want to work at a physically demanding job, so affiliate marketing provides an ideal opportunity to do something with low setup costs, easily managed and suitable for generating a second source of income, even if it is only part-time.
Not everyone has an abundance of money to live a fulfilling life throughout their retirement years, so it only makes sense to have a side line business in the background that can supplement an existing income and make life a little more free and easy. After all, retirement should be enjoyable after a life of hard work.
Now, think about your retirement years!
Whether you are already retired or approaching retirement, what exactly do you want to do during those years? What are your hopes and dreams?
- Where will you be living?
- Would you like to travel?
- Will you have enough money for a comfortable life?
- Will you buy a new car or take up a new hobby?
How To Make Money In Retirement (or if unemployed or in part-time employment)
As mentioned already, doing business online is perfect and tailor made for those in retirement. There is no physical labour involved and all you need is a computer, an internet connection and a desire to earn some extra income on the side.
Let’s look at some advantages to running an online business during your retirement years:
- Lifestyle freedom
- Loads of opportunities
- Flexible time
- Access to a global marketplace
- Very low overheads
- Easy to get started
- No physical labour
- Freedom to travel – work from anywhere in the world with an internet connection, almost everywhere nowadays
- Earn extra income
- Avoid money stress
- An online business can be full time or part time.
It can be more like a hobby business, something you and your partner can enjoy, you can do part-time and when it suits you. Your efforts can lead to passive and residual income, so you don’t actually have to continually work for every single dollar.
Superannuation, savings, investments and pensions are fine, but having control of your life with an online business will really help give you a true feeling of financial security.
