There are dozens of benefits of affiliate marketing in addition to freedom and simplicity, here are my top 10 reasons to make money online as an affiliate marketer. 1) No Product Development Cost You don't need to worry to develop and produce a new product. It's really expensive. 2) Low Cost Set-up Got a desk, Internet-connected computer and word-processing software? You’re in business! 3) No Fees or Geographic Limits on Distribution Market reach is limited only by the affiliate’s ability to promote his or her web site. And not to mention that you can join to different affiliate programs for free. 4) Choose From Thousands of Products and Services What isn’t sold online? With affiliate networks like Commission Junction, Be Free, Clickbank and Linkshare, it’s easy to find products related to your current or planned web site. 5) No Merchant Account Required Forget the problems associated with collecting and storing names, addresses, credit card numbers, etc. The merchant handles all payment processing, so you never have to lose sleep over chargebacks, fraud or losing your merchant account. 6) No Inventory to Carry Even if you live in a small one-bedroom apartment, you can sell large items without storage concerns. 7) No Shipping Costs Don’t worry about buying packing supplies or postal rates. The cost and hassle to prepare and ship products to customers worldwide belongs to the merchant. 8) No Customer Concerns Do you hate the prospect of dealing with nasty people? Don’t worry about it! The merchant handles the snivelers. 9) Make Money While You Sleep What other business allows you as a sole proprietor to keep your doors open and keep making money even when you take breaks or after you go home for the night? 10) High Income Potential With your own affiliate business your income potential is limited only by your desire, effort and imagination – not your boss. Relatively low outlay of resources with huge potential income really makes affiliate marketing on the Internet an outstanding business opportunity.

Many people failed in affiliate marketing because of two main reasons: 1) They are doing it the wrong way. 2) They are lack of patience and motivation. Success still depends on your hands, despite I provide free lessons and resources to properly do this.

The main issue with affiliate marketing is finding customers, or other people to sponsor into being affiliates. Just was one good source of perspective clients emerges it's spammed with millions of emails (viralurl for instance). If I could find that golden opt-in list of people who *are actually* interested in the products that would be great, but for 90% of the affiliates out there it just doesn't happen. Thats just my opinion on the matter though.
