Let’s be perfectly honest and say that not everything about affiliate marketing is great. You need to be aware of both the pros AND the cons before you decide that affiliate marketing is right for you.
Pros of Affiliate Marketing Affiliate marketing is free and easy to join - Most affiliate programs are free to join and no experience is required in most cases Multiple income channels - Joining multiple programs mean you will be earning from multiple sources. Hence, an opportunity to make more money. Easy management - you do not have to handle orders, ship any inventory, or deal with the customer. The merchant handles all that, so you are only focused on promoting the offers to your audience.
Cons of Affiliate Marketing High level of competition - there is great competition as everyone fights to get the attention of consumers. This has made it difficult for new businesses to grow. Dependency - Affiliate marketers depend on the merchant to make their money. If there were no merchants or affiliate programs, the possibility of being an affiliate marketer would not exist.
