Welcome to Affiliate Rocketship, or AR for short.
I’ve decided to create this particular blog post for 2 reasons:
- Introduce myself and explain why AR was created
- Share what we can offer to help you along your affiliate marketing journey to grow your niche site, reach more people, and higher income levels
First up, who am I and why was Affiliate Rocketship created?
I’m Jason and I’ve been working from home for nearly 5 years now.
I first “discovered” affiliate marketing in the summer of 2015 and to be quite honest — I didn’t fully understand it and didn’t care too much for it.
It was just one of the many things I came across during my search to make money online.
Other things I came across and most of which I’ve tried at some point or another include: creating an app, working with startup investors (even though I didn’t have a solid startup idea), survey sites, dropshipping and whole selling, and more.
All of these can be legit options, they just didn’t necessarily work out for ME.
The one thing that did, affiliate marketing.
It can be powerful when approached and properly executed.
There are several successful affiliates who can vouch for that.
If I decided to take a break from internet marketing for the rest of the year, I’d still receive affiliate earnings each month.
Which is an insane thought to me.
Instead of taking the year off, however, I plan on doing just the opposite by really focusing on affiliate marketing and seeing how far I can take it.
Personally, there’s a lot of room for growth and things to learn.
The game plan is to not only improve my own affiliate efforts and share as I learn and grow (I’m in the “trenches” with you), but to tackle some reasons why some affiliate sites fail and others do great.
Some of these different causes: choice of niche, maybe your not familiar with properly structuring your website (not too many people are), maybe you’re attracting the wrong traffic or promoting the wrong products, maybe there’s a lack of confidence that you can be an authority, maybe your closer than you think and missing a few small details to finally help you breakthrough.
We WANT to tackle problems and questions like these.
I once read “If you spent the next 6 months doing everything right, how far along would you be?” It continued, “Better yet if you spent the past 6 months doing everything right, where would you be now?”
The point is that a lot can be accomplished in 6 months.
It doesn’t matter if you’re just getting started or if you’ve been at it for a while and feel that you are struggling.
With the right guidance and taking small action, a lot can be accomplished.
I look forward to publishing and sharing more helpful affiliate marketing content in the near future.
Overall, the game plan is to stick with the strategies that have worked well in the past as well as new strategies.
We’ll see what’s effective and what’s not, together.
Why Affiliate Marketing?
In the past, I said that I feel affiliate marketing is a great introduction to online business for beginners.
Which is still 100% true.
Affiliate marketing provides entrepreneurs with a way to earn money online through product recommendation.
It doesn’t require as much resource as doing something like creating your own product or service. First, you need to create it, patent it, manufacture it, etc. etc.
Creating your own product is a great option but for a complete beginner affiliate marketing can be way less confusing.
Though, there’s still lots of work involved if you truly wish to stand out against the competition and actually earn money.
Another reason is that it’s affordable.
Yes, the barrier to entry is quite low. Affiliate programs are free to join. A website can be secured at about $100 per year.
The difference-maker for many is how they approach it (training or advice being followed) and if they are willing to see their affiliate business through.
It can be quite the process as I’m sure some of you know already. But one that can pay off very nicely to those who stick with it.
These are just a couple of reasons why I think affiliate marketing is awesome.
Another one would be it’s how I FINALLY started to earn online. I’m not talking $10 payouts here and there.
But several thousands of dollars each month, while only working minimal hours.
Why Affiliate Rocketship?
I am not claiming to be an expert affiliate marketer. Nor am I claiming to know everything.
In fact, I’ve created more failing websites than I have successful ones.
The point here is that I am willing to invest the time and money to become better at what I do and create and share success along the way — through AR.
Our overall goal is to help affiliate marketers who haven’t quite reached a level of success they want or deserve. I know what it’s like to be on the struggling end.
We also know what it’s like to pick yourself up, build something you are proud of, helps others, and make money month after month as a result.
