    You can also argue that drop shipping has more costs and headaches associated with it compared to affiliate marketing. Not only do you have to buy inventory but you also have to deal with customers directly. I love that affiliate marketing doesn’t require any inventory nor do I have any customer interaction. All affiliates do is send customers to other companies. If there are customer issues, it is usually the company that has the problem, not the affiliate.

    So I am really surprised there are people out there that say dropshipping is much easier.

    • Rufat says:

      I agree Jessie. Drop shipping is harder than affiliate marketing and that’s why I prefer it. Both have pros and cons but I believe affiliate marketing has less cons. The only con it has is that it takes a considerable amount of time to build a profitable business. Anyway, it’s worth the effort.

    This is a very insightful and thorough post about affiliate marketing . I like the fact you are telling us that it is not easy as this shows transparency and honesty in your article.

    Yes I believe affiliate marketing is hard but if you want to be successful at something you have to work at it. 

    It’s not for everyone but I think it’s a brilliant industry to get into and your article will help go along way to helping people like me to decide.

    • Rufat says:

      I always try to be transparent with my readers. Many bloggers try to hide the truth because their main goal is to catch someone and get the sale. This is wrong. Plus most of the time those people quit after one month or so. It’s always better to be completely transparent and help people. This will eventually lead to more conversions and sales organically. Affiliate marketing is not that hard but it takes a lot of work to be done before you make money.

    • Rufat says:

      Yes, I know. Amazon pays very low commission on most of their products. You need a lot of traffic to earn a good amount of money. You can combine it with other programs such as Walmart, Bestbuy, Etsy, Overstock, Target, Zappos, AliExpress. Some of them may way more than Amazon. You can also promote digital products from sites like Clickbank, JVZoo.
