One of the biggest reasons why I chose online marketing and affiliate marketing specifically was the fact that this business model is so flexible, both flexible in where you are working and when you work.
More Control Over Your Work-Life Balance
Affiliate marketing allows people to have a lot more control over their work-life balance. You don’t need to work hour upon hour upon hour, you can actually have a life! Basically, with the AF business model you can set the time when you are creating content or creating sales funnels or whatever you need to achieve business success.
Being able to work anywhere you want, location independence, is another great benefit of affiliate marketing. As long as you have a laptop or phone and an internet connection, you are in business!
Turn Your Hobby into Dollars
Enjoy a hobby? Start making videos of you working on your hobby. Like woodworking? Perfect! I don’t know a single man out there that would not tune into a channel where some dude is cutting wood on a table saw. (It’s my own love language!) This content can be turned into a course on building a table, or maybe you want to create a short course of joinery.
Like to fish? Personally, I like to catch, but the fishing niche is HUGE! Maybe you like deep sea fishing. Take your smart phone with you and video the day. It would be an awesome video to use when promoting your affiliate link selling tackle for deep sea fishing.
No matter what it is that you like to do in your everyday, ordinary life there is probably a product that you could promote making affiliate marketing an extremely flexible business in terms of your ability to promote a variety of product and creating multiple streams of income.
Affiliate Marketing – The Digital Nomad Life
Ever hear of a digital nomad? Basically, a digital nomad emphasizes the freedom and flexibility that comes with using technology to earn a living while having the ability to choose their work environment. Almost all digital nomads work remotely, sometimes they work from home, sometimes they work from the road like those “van life” folk!
The flexibility that affiliate marketing offers appeals to those folks that are more interested in personal independence, location freedom and the potential to generate a huge income from your efforts. If your goal is to find a flexible option for business ownership, affiliate marketing will probably be a great fit!
