    This video is a little long winded, but in todays video I talk about the importance of building your own asset.

    To often I see people assume they will be able to successfully run affiliate marketing forever (which may be true).

    But it's very important to start building your own assets that can generate your revenue for years to come.

    You can't make your own asset like your own ebooks, courses and stuff if you are not an expert in some field.

    Affiliate marketing is there if you want to make income that will cover up your costs, like I use XY program and I promote their products so they cover up my car leasing every month, some of them are paying my bills and stuff.

    Have you ever heard some billionaire talking about how he do Amazon Affiliate or ShareaSale promotions.

    Sure you can make XXxxx amounts with this, but it's not permanent and it depends on so many things like product can be removed anytime, affiliate network can shut down, you lose your visitors, etc.

    One of the best things you can do if you have money is to invest in apartments in big cities.

    Of course, people don't make money with amazon affiliate or affiliate marketing:

    I agree that building assets is important, but you just can make a lot of money permanently with affiliate marketing.

    Read my post again, I told you, you will never see a billionair who made that money with AFF.

    You can make XXxxx but not a fortune.

    All those people from your links are having their blog for fun, they have their own companies and they make money there.

    It is true that aff. marketing won't make you millionaire (btw. why would you put Hogan there when what he has done was illegal?)
    But aff. marketing is a VERY nice startup. Very little investment and huge ROI. and today the world is all about internet.
    Look at the those top successful member here and I bet they won't make so much money if they only do affiliate marketing.

    The logic is quite simple. The one that own the product will sell at a higher price than the money you make from affiliate.
    Sure the cost of goods sold is also more but that's why high risk has higher return.

    I think, for startup you just make some good money and then go build your own assets.
    And no investing in apartment is for sure not the best choice from my point of view.

    I know, but this is what I found with a "1-minute-google-search".

    But for Hogan, I'm right: even if it's Black Hat, he made millions with affiliate marketing, and you can't say that people can't make a lot of money with affiliate marketing (on BHW, besides!)

    There are loads of examples of people becoming millionaires from affiliate marketing. What world do you live in...

    camelcamelcamel.com is the best amazon affiliate site I have ever seen.
