Starting up a business is by no means easy, online or offline.
It’s important to know from the word go the advantages and
disadvantages of the multiple presentation issues that you have
to deal with.
Just this one decision alone could decide the future of your
business. Where many jump in headfirst with short term profits
in mind, we need to be smarter than that to survive, never mind
First up let’s talk about all the advantages of owning your own
product and why creating and releasing products of your own
should be a high priority, and of course how this compares to
promoting other peoples businesses through affiliate programs.
By the time we’re done here you’ll have a clearer idea as to
where you’re going with your business and why you’re going there.
Ok, first things first. How do you choose? The answer in itself
is quite simple, and I have always believed that creating your
own products does something very important for you, and that’s
give you the means, the opportunity and the resources to promote
affiliate programs to haul in extra cash.
Promoting other peoples products is all well and good, I don’t
have a problem with doing that at all, but to get to the point
where you can do this well, and do this confidently you need a
good base, and that base is your own products. There are two big
ways in which your own products are going to help you get some
meat behind your marketing.
First off, they’re going to start getting your name around and
start building your online presence. If your customers know you,
and have known you for some time, it’s more likely they’ll buy
from you again when you either launch your next product, or you
come to them with a recommendation of some sort through an
affiliate program and other people’s products.
This is all part of building your brand, and even though it is a
much longer term concept that initially bringing in cash, it’s
also very important and will make a big difference in the
future. It’s imperative that you get this right now, as further
down the line, you will reap huge benefits.
Imagine for a moment, that you’re creating a product to sell,
and all you’ve ever done is promote affiliate programs. It’s
going to be hard to hit home about your expertise and the
reliability of your product when putting together a sales letter.
Another point here is that generally, through the promotion of
your own products and joint ventures, you’re going to make
contacts. These contacts are extremely important to you, but
when you have nothing to contact them about in the first place,
it’s kind of hard to get in with a group of people, unless you
wait for them to come to you, which of course we don’t want to
do, or there’s no telling how long it’s going to take.
Secondly, and most importantly by far, is it’s going to build
your resources. Look at the kind of things that you can do with
your own product, and your own website that you can’t do with
affiliate promotion. List building is one heck of an important
area that’s made easy simply by offering follow-up to your
product that increases sales in the short term anyway.
The earning capacity of owning your own product is immense, and
the flexibility it gives you instantly, and far down the line
into the future cannot be matched by affiliate promotion on it’s
