Like most people, I got started with online marketing to make a couple of hundred extra bucks to support myself and the family. This was nearly a decade ago while I was still working at my 9-5 jobs in the construction industry. It was nothing glamorous but it paid the bills and allowed me to bring the bacon home.
That said, the work was back-breaking and the shifts were long which didn’t leave much for any kind of life besides work and family. Suffice to say, I wanted more, more time to spend with family and do whatever I want, whenever and the only way for me to do that was to generate a passive income stream. I decided to become an entrepreneur and a start a business but my dreams were quickly shattered when I considered the cost.
And just like that my dreams were extinguished until I came across a story of an affiliate marketing who was minting five figures a month promoting other people’s products. I was skeptical at first, I mean who wouldn’t be at the thought of making that kind of money behind a computer screen.
But I kept my skepticism at bay, read through the article and understood the business model. All I need to do was find and promote a low competition product with a healthy commission. It sounded easy enough and other than the upfront domain and hosting fees, I was golden.
Compared to starting a traditional brick and mortal business, affiliate marketing seemed to have the best ROI and least amount of capital.
I was hooked, line and sinker and decided to take the risk and go down the rabbit hole that is digital marketing. Fast forward a few years later, and I was able to quite my 9-5 job, support my family, spend time with them and live the life I was meant to.
While I started with affiliate marketing and still do it, I’ve since switched my focus to sales funnels. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still in the affiliate marketing game and will stay on as long as it’s profitable, but I’ve fallen in love with sales funnels. If you’re looking to generate more sales or leads, then you should definitely consider building a funnel for your business.
