Many companies today, large and small sign up individuals and other companies to sell their products and services through home based affiliate business owners. The individuals and/or companies then market and sell the items for a commission.
If you currently have a business and would like to grow, you can even offer others an opportunity to earn income by becoming an independent home based affiliate business with you. Those who choose to affiliate with you would work strictly on commission.
This idea is nothing new. Prior to the internet and online businesses small home based entrepreneurs have always sold other companies products by working out of catalogs.
Direct door to door, one on one sales, party plans. Companies like Amway, Avon, Shaklee, Watkins, and many others started out that way and prospered by having independent salesmen and women market and sell their products.
Because of the internet and the ease of developing one's own website today, companies are taking advantage of cutting some of their overhead cost and increasing their sales by having home based affiliate business owners market and sell their products and services.
It is a win win situation for all parties involved. Just about every major national chain store has an affiliate program available for the home based affiliate business owner.
Go to the header page of just about any major department store or business and in the bottom footer section you will see the words affiliate or affiliate programs.
Before the internet you had mail order houses. Today you have online shopping. Different time, different name, different trend but still the same thing.
As a home based affiliate business owner this field of entrepreneurship can be very exciting and profitable provided you are set up properly and have chosen the right field as to what type of products and services you want to market.
Starting a business venture is like starting a new job. If you were looking for employment and the pay was sufficient what field or niche would you like to work in.
Like any business, the home based affiliate business takes time to start, grow, market and prosper. Unless you are already in an existing relationship with another company or have a business of your own it is best you keep your day or night job and enter this field on a part time basis.
By all means pick a field or niche that you would really enjoy working in. If you are afraid of selling don't worry about that because home based affiliate business owners don't meet their clients in person.
