Many people make use of one-level programs of affiliate marketing to supplement their primary business income, but if you’re letting yourself be satisfied with just that, you’re doing yourself and your company a disservice. Affiliates that make use of multiple levels of marketing are a much more durable and long-lived than single-tiered affiliates. Support for this concept comes from sources as high as the ‘number one super affiliate of the world,’ Singapore’s own Ewen Chia.
Some successful internet marketers have even stronger condemnation of the single-tier affiliate system, such as the world-famous marketer Stephen Pierce; he referred to the system as a ‘ball and chain.’ The idea behind these disparaging remarks is that affiliate marketing should only be one part of the internet market view; marketers should have as many avenues to earn a profit as _possible. Other forms of revenue besides single-tier affiliate marketing can be pay-per-click ads, multi-level affiliate marketing, and promoting one’s own products.
If you weren’t aware, all affiliate marketing is, in its basic sense, is being paid a commission to sell the products others produce and own. You take an existing product which serves as a solution to a theoretical problem, then go out and find the concrete problem and sell that solution. There are countless programs and options available for affiliate use. A quick browse through the search results of any given search engine will let you see hundreds of thousands of digital products just waiting for someone to hawk them.
The main drawback to this program is that you get paid once, and once only, for a sale; with a multi-level affiliate program, you can be paid many, many times over for a sale-whenever someone you’ve recruited into the program makes a sale, you’re also paid! This can make it a much more lucrative stream of revenue than pay-per-click ads, self-promotion, or single-tier affiliate programs, because the possibilities for revenue are endless; the more people you recruit and the more people they recruit (and so on and so forth down the line) the more money you will bring in.
By making use of the right many-layered programs you can get residual income that significantly boosts your profit, up to theoretically endless chains of money. Picture, if you will, making a sale with the condition of the buyer also becoming your affiliate marketer. Then when he makes a successful sale, you get a cut of that, too. Then the second new customer makes a sale, and you’ll get paid yet another time! The only limits to these sorts of profit chains are those imposed by the legal system, which is generally lax on internet-based business endeavors.
By using multiple levels of affiliate marketing, you allow yourself to take the energies and efforts of other people and turn those things into your own personal income stream. A single-tier affiliate marketing scheme simply can’t compete with this kind of infinitely sustaining framework. If regular fees are added to the program, suddenly you have a very predictable source of income that multiplies with the growth of the program itself, making for incredibly easy maintenance.
The amount of money you can make in a multi-level affiliate program is limited only by the number of people you can recruit, and in turn by the number of people they recruit, and so on and so forth. The possible stream of revenue is positively mind-boggling!
