To be an affiliate?
There is a huge difference being an affiliate to promote genuine products and services and those that tell you if you pay just 5, 10, 20, or even $100. to get others to pay you, That is called a pyramid or Ponzi scheme and is totally illegal and at the very least you will lose money and at worst you will end up in jail either way you lose so here is a little more information about this sort of program:
Charles Ponzi (/ˈpɒnzi/, Italian: [ˈpontsi]; born Carlo Pietro Giovanni Guglielmo Tebaldo Ponzi; March 3, 1882 – January 18, 1949) was an Italian swindler and con artist in the U.S. and Canada. His aliases include Charles Ponci, Carlo, and Charles P. Bianchi. Born and raised in Italy, he became known in the early 1920s as a swindler in North America for his money-making scheme. He promised clients a 50% profit within 45 days or 100% profit within 90 days, by buying discounted postal reply coupons in other countries and redeeming them at face value in the U.S. as a form of arbitrage.:1 In reality, Ponzi was paying earlier investors using the investments of later investors. While this type of fraudulent investment scheme was not originally invented by Ponzi, it became so identified with him that it now is referred to as a “Ponzi scheme”. His scheme ran for over a year before it collapsed, costing his “investors” $20 million.
Ponzi may have been inspired by the scheme of William F. Miller (also known as “520% Miller”), a Brooklyn bookkeeper who in 1899 used a similar deception to take in $1 million.
Do your due diligence?
Sorry if the information above has put you off a little but have no fear you just need to do your due diligence when joining a new business idea or venture, what I mean by this is to check them out, make sure they are actually selling real and tangible products and services that you can resell with confidence, also do a little checking on the company itself and make sure they are directly contactable and is a viable registered company, this is simple to do through Google these days and it will put your mind at rest, for instance you can type my name into Google and you will find lots of info about me as I am open and honest in all that I do so please be assured that all the information in this website is legal, honest and correct to the best of my knowledge, my grammar and typing may not be the best because I am actually blind and sometimes words sound correct when they are not and I do not always have my written information proof read so I apologise if there are some typo’s.
Why be an affiliate?
I suppose the top answer would be to earn a commission.
So what is an affiliate?
Ok so there are thousands of companies around the world that want to sell their products both on and off line and some of them pay sales people to go out there and sell their products for them but this can be costly for each company to do that not to mention the employee rights and contracts to deal with which means they also need to employ human resources staff to monitor and work with sales people so you see the problems and costs of selling and advertising their products and services can rise dramatically and profits plummet.
So what is the answer?
The answer is to get people to advertise their products and services and pay them a commission that is based on sales results overall, So now in this instance instead of calling them sales representatives we now call them affiliates who are not tied to one particular company and we do not have to get involved with employee status and all the costs involved with that status and we can pay an affiliate far better commission rates because the affiliate bears the cost of advertising and take care of their own taxes .
This also has great advantages for companies producing the products and services because they can now have many thousands of sales /affiliates people deployed worldwide selling products and services for them and the only cost is commission rates which are easily adjusted and managed to suit the profitability for the company.
So how do you become an affiliate?
Well most companies these days have an affiliate program that you can join free but in general they will only pay you a good commission if you buy one or more of their products or services and show your commitment to their company and now also many provide really good support for genuine affiliates by providing dedicated training and help along with very unique and helpful advertising software and will guide you through the process and help you to grow your own business selling their products for them because after all it is in their interest that you become very successful like we have here at NJP Business which is built entirely from being an affiliate and selling products and services for other companies.
The flexibility of being an affiliate?
Yes the flexibility of being an affiliate is enormous because we do not have to sell for just one company and if you put together a blog like this one that you are reading right now then you can advertise as many as you want in the same blog and this attracts many different people looking for products and services and makes your advertising a whole lot easier and like us you only need to advertise YOUR own website URL and this automatically advertises all of your affiliate programs for you because you place your affiliate links to each company throughout your website with descriptions for each one of them.
So what is an affiliate URL?
An affiliate URL is the address to the company or even a specific product or service to the company that you are promoting or advertising for so that you have your commissions linked each time someone goes to that specific address.
For instance here at NJP Business one of our promotions is for Now Lifestyle which is a company based in Shirts, Texas and is one of the best companies that we have ever had the pleasure to advertise for and you will see it in many forms throughout our business and one of the URL’s that we send out is this address here: https://nowlifestyle.com/launch/start-now2?id=2wowu so you will note that address is to getting started with us and includes our ID at the end of the address so this ensures that you will join our specific team at NLS should you choose to join from that link.
