Affiliate marketing has been around online at least since Amazon launched in the late 1990s, but has never been given proper credit as a "respectable" monetization avenue. Until now ...

Fantastic post and podcast, Brian.

I'm a raving fan of the affiliate marketing business model. Since my discovery of it, I've always found it more attractive than any other online business model such as Adsense or an Ecommerce store.

However, I will admit that actually being an affiliate of someone elses' product/service isn't exactly the best and most stable way to make money online; for me, anyway,

While affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online initially, the competition is fierce and I wouldn't suggest that anyone rely solely on affiliate marketing for their income.

I have several horror stories I could share where I'd put all of my eggs in one affiliate marketing basket only to wake up one day and realize that the product, service, or program has disappeared.

That's why I've moved on to creating my own products. I'm more partial to the affiliate marketing model where you have OTHERS become affiliate of YOUR product.

What I love about product creation is that YOU own the asset. And no one can take it away from you overnight. Plus, you get to keep 100% of the profits and the backend money - if you incorporate up-sells into your sales funnel.

This isn't my first time visiting Copyblogger, Brian; however, this is my first time leaving a comment. I just want to say that all of the content Copyblogger creates is insanely valuable and I truly appreciate all the work that goes into it.

It's really helped and enlightened me over the years and I look forward to reading even more valuable content in the future.

I'll be sure to share this post with my social circle.

Thanks, again! :)
