Network Marketing or Affiliate Marketing, What's the Difference?

When working online you hear of two main things (of course there are many ways to make money online, but these two you hear a lot of) network marketing and affiliate marketing.  They sound similar and yes you can make a lot of money with both, but I am often asked what the difference really is between the two.  Well they can be used somewhat interchangeably when you really think about it, but in the online world people tend to mean specific things when using these terms.

First is network marketing:

This is when you are building a team of affiliates to work with you.  This team helps you to build your residual income over time.  Meaning as your team grows, your income grows and you will continue to be paid year after year.  This grows in a pyramid, but it is not a pyramid scheme or scam.  Just you have yourself on top of the team, then your direct referrals and their referrals and so on.  

You grow with others on your team and you are there helping them grow their teams as well.  This is the networking part of it.  You grow together as a network.  A business like Cashjuice is a great example.  If you were to join with me, I would have you on my team and I would help you to build your own team.  There are plenty of other businesses like this as well. 

Now you have affiliate marketing:

This is usually referred to when you promote other people's products.  Now the cool part about this that a lot of people like is that you do not handle any sales, you do not have to follow up with people, and you get paid by the owner of the product.  You can set ads up and collect commissions.  Sounds easy and great right? Not so easy if you don't know what you are doing.  See in affiliate marketing, you don't have a sponsor or any upline to guide you through the process.  It can be overwhelming.

Lucky for beginners who want to make money online with this, there are things like Covert Commissions.  They have a very easy way of automating everything for you.  The link there provides a free report for you.  Now yes, you can get into profit without using anything like Covert Commissions, but you really have to know what you are doing.  I gave up a few times along the way on affiliate marketing because of the learning curves thrown at you.

Now my take on which is better between the two?

I honestly like both! It is better to not have all your money in one basket so to speak.  Why not build a successful team on one side and also market other people's products for money on the other? That is my take on it.

What do you prefer - affiliate marketing or network marketing?

Legitmate Work at Home Jobs in 2018

The Internet has become a popular place for people to look for work from home jobs.  Along with it tho has been a lot of scammers so for new people it is often hard to find legitimate jobs.  I cannot emphasize enough to watch out for big promises when looking online for work! If it says you will make a lot of money in your first day or even your first month, do not continue.  Click away.

I know many of my wonderful readers have been with me for years now, but for new people to my blog I want to mention that I do not personally work a job online that pays me 9-5.  What I do is work with companies who pay me to do tasks and also I build teams with some online businesses.There are companies who will do the 9-5 hourly pay, but honestly they are hard to find doing an Internet search.  You can talk with your current employer and see if they have a telecommute position available, but please be careful when you look online at promises.  

I will share with you some great companies that I have been paid by and I want to mention that I don't hop onto the newest bandwagon.  I prefer companies who have been around a while and who have a reputation (and I have been with most of these for years not just a day or a week.)  I will also update with more shortly but as many of you know, I am very picky with what I share with my readers.

Here is a list of places I prefer:

User Testing They are a site that you get paid to test websites.  You need to have a working microphone on your computer and submit a test sample first.  If you pass (fairly easy), you will be able to test out more websites and get paid.  They pay by Paypal and the pay varies based on test, but I believe each one is at least $10.  I haven't got less then that and I have got up to $30 for one that was about an hour.

InboxDollars They are a site where you complete various tasks and surveys along with paid emails. You will be paid by check with them.  They are not a huge money maker, but I have been able to pay a couple of bills with them since I have been a member there.

Hubpages This is a great site to earn a little extra cash if you are a writer.  You won't earn a ton of money, but you keep rights to what you write and you can write about what you want to write about (not for somebody else.)  It is like having your own blog except you get paid per page view here. 

iWriter Great site if you are starting out as a writer online.  The pay isn't as good as some sites, but they have always paid me and they are not hard at all to write for.  This is a site that you write articles based on what a client wants and when they accept, you get paid. 

Textbroker Here is another site that is writing for clients to make money.  The pay here is a little better then iWriter, but they are stricter on the writing so it can be a bit more difficult.  Worth it tho if writing is your thing!

PostLoop They are another one that is not very high paying but have been there paying me since 2012.  You get paid to write on forums and leave blog comments.  Very easy and can be quite fun to do in between other stuff

Fiverr This is a site that I have never personally done anything with but they are legitimate and have paid many people (I do know people who have been paid through it.)  You can cruise through listings of what people need or you can list something you will do.  Pretty simple site to use.

Freelancer This is a great site for freelancers to find great jobs online.  Jobs can vary but there are usually jobs for everybody.  It can be hard to start tho since they have experience levels.  But it is possible to earn a nice amount of money from here.

GDI Here is a company that you can build a business with, you can use your website for whatever you want and you can make money sharing them with other people.  They offer a no strings attached free trial and then it is $10 a month after but you get your own website hosted with them along with a blog and other cool tools like making a forum on your site.  They have been around for years providing people with the tools to build a profitable business.  I highly recommend them even if just for the website and not to earn money with them.

Cashjuice This one is pretty new however I have worked with the founder at his other site.  He is not new online, it is just his new site.  This is a great addition for anybody who is already online and will be great for newbies as well. 

Some of these sites you would join as a member of my team (with my full support) and some of them are not an affiliate program (no compensation at all) but I know they are a great place for people to go to work at home.

Can I Become Successful Online Too?

Running a business isn't as easy as it sounds, but it is worth it overall.  You may see others talking about how successful they are with their online business and how "quickly" they got there and wonder if you can become successful online too.  Quickly is in quotes because it is something that people use to get your attention and try to get you to act now.  Run away from those scams.  If somebody is putting a time limit on signing up and a limited number of positions, it is likely a scam.  With that being said, anybody can be successful with the work that is needed to get there.  And yes you can succeed online with the right steps, company and mentality.  

Here is what these gurus don't want you to know:

Truth is that they really didn't get to be successful quickly like they want you to think - and many times they really didn't get true success once people found out their scam was just that, a scam.  Often times they are just trying to get you to buy their program to make them richer.  Many times I have seen these work at home "gurus" come and go.  There are very few of these get rich quick guys that last even a year.  But the fancy houses in their ads are nice, right? Don't buy into it.  It is a bunch of crap and you will waste your money.

The right company to work with:

What you need for success is the right company to work with (yes work with not for, you are starting a business not an hourly job.)  A company that has been around for years and still here.  Not some "guru" that is flashing "his/her house" (not usually their house.)  That is why in all my years of working online my first choice for building a business is SFI, they have been online helping people for 20 years now.  If you join by clicking the link you will be an affiliate on my team.  That is a good thing because I can help you, but just wanted to let you know that I am affiliated with them.

The "gurus" don't want you to know about companies like SFI because they can't get you to buy their expensive product hoping you won't ask for a refund.  Of course there are other legitimate companies out there, but in my experience of working at home I have found them to be the most solid company to work with.  The work at home gurus don't want you to know about them  - they are a legitimate company who offers training and support for anybody willing to put time and work into their business.  You can succeed without ever making a financial investment in SFI, tho an investment helps you get there faster.  In all reality if these "get rich quick working at home" guys were to actually start working with companies like SFI, they would have true success.  But it takes the right mentality to work at home and actually make real money, that is why they do not do it.  They want instant riches at the sake of fooling you out of money (and they go broke when people demand refunds.)  They don't have the mentality to succeed.

The right steps:

The right steps depend on your situation and how you are able to move forward.  The first step of course would be joining with a successful company who has been in business for years.  Then you will want to set your goals (very important!) If you chose to work with me at SFI, the next step would be to learn all you can about the company and how you can earn.  I am always here for my team and there is a lot of training available for us as well.

There are several steps that you would want to take, you are building a business not buying a get rich scam.  It does take time and effort! But steps depend on your ability (do you know about Internet Marketing or do you have to learn it, do you know people who want to work with you or do you have to find them yet, etc.)  It is absolutely possible tho!

The right mentality:

You need to be ready to help others succeed.  Like with me, I tend to do contests and reward my team members with personally sponsored affiliates.  I want others to succeed and I am willing to help them to get there.  You can want to succeed, you can want what money can buy and dream the dreams but true success in online work is when you help others to succeed.  And then success will follow.  When your team succeeds, you succeed.

Setting Your Goals for Success

Everybody should have goals, whether it be for business, life or even better for both.  Goals are something that one wants to achieve in life.  Yes you can get through life without setting goals, but setting goals make it easier to succeed and attain what we really want in life. 

Why are goals so important you ask? They help us to realize what we want in life so we can take the steps to achieve them.  They give us a purpose and a sense of direction.  They also give you an idea of what you need to do to move forward.

Setting goals takes some thinking but is not really hard.  You want to think of what you really want your end result to be.  This could be business or personal.  Some people want to hike the Appalachian Trail from beginning to end.  That takes time (a few months) and some planning.  There would be planning involved there.  You would be on a trail for months but cannot bring a lot of food at once.  Yeah you can wing it for part of it, but it would take planning too.

Now not everybody wants to hike the trail, many people want to succeed in life and business tho.  First you need to define what success is to you.  We all have different ideas on this.  For me it is building a successful business and to help others do the same with me.

After you define what success is to you, you will have your main goal.  Do not expect it to happen overnight, but with hard work you can do it.  Break it up into smaller goals with steps to achieve each goal.  Then you work your way up to your main goal.  Setting your goals is one of the most important things you can do for yourself.  Start planning for your success now!

Amazing Team Building Contest

I will be sending out a team mail later today as well, but there will be another exciting contest this month.  It will be similar to last month's contest where you will be rewarded for logging in and working toward building your business and team.  Your success is always very important to me and I will help you every way I can.  It does take work, but it is worth it when you stick to it and build over time.

The contest will be simple again and the prizes will be amazing to help you build your business.  They will include personally sponsored affiliates (PSAs) and Tcredits to spend on auctions, games or other cool things at TripleClicks

More details will be emailed out in the team email.  This is going to be an exciting contest!

Not on the team yet? You can join us here: SFI.  I am always here for my team whether it be on chat or email, I will be there to help you.  Note that if you are already an affiliate at SFI, you will  not be able to join my team as you will have another sponsor.  But if you are not an affiliate, joining through this link will put you on my team.

The fine print:

This is a work at home opportunity to build your own success as a marketer.  It is dependent on many factors and is not an hourly paycheck.  The rewards are great, but you will have to work for it.  By joining through the link, you will be an affiliate on my team and I will earn a certain percentage of what you earn and your activities but this will not affect your earnings in any way.  I am opted in to what is called OptiBuild which means that 50% of my new affiliates go to other members of my team.  Do not be concerned if your sponsor is somebody else on the team.  You still may contact me and I am still in your upline.  I do this so my team can build their own teams as well so it is a win win for everybody.

Wanted: People Looking to Succeed

I have now been an affiliate here since January and I absolutely love it here! They have been online since 1998 and the founder has been online even longer, so they are a company to work with and not a get rich quick scheme.  I am looking for people who want to succeed.  I am a believer in teams.  If we build teams then nobody gets left behind to fend for themselves.  We all build success together.  If you join with me on my team, I will help you to succeed.  It will take work and time, there is no quick riches, but I will help you if you are willing to put the time in.

The Internet is a big place and it can be a great place to build your business.  But it can also be a bit scary or overwhelming when you are left to do it on your own.  SFI has provided us with training and tools that we need to succeed.  They really want to see their affiliates succeed.  And I do too, I only succeed if my team does.

To join with me and get my support start here: SFI

I will receive notification of you joining with me and will send out your welcome email.  You are always welcome to email me with any questions you have along your way to the top.

Wishing you the best of success!
