Affiliate marketing is one of the absolute best ways to start making money online. There is very little investment needed to get started and no need for previous work or college experience. In short, it all comes down to how much work you put in and keeping that dedication alive to succeed in the long run.
When I first started making money online with affiliate marketing, there were only a few affiliate networks to choose from. The two networks I first started out with are no longer around, as they were acquired by ValueClick many years ago.
The landscape of affiliate marketing today is thousands of times larger than it was pre-2000, but this also means there is a lot of opportunity for anyone who is just getting started or trying to find new ways to make money online.
There is no other opportunity like affiliate marketing. Where else could a kid in his parents basement partner up with billion dollar companies and earn thousands of dollars for pushing legitimate leads and date to their brands in the process?… No where!
This is exactly what we are going to be talking about in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur.
Jennine Rexon is not only an affiliate marketer and entrepreneur, but she has also built out quite the affiliate network empire over the past 14 years since getting started online. Just being in business for ten years is quite the accomplishment for any affiliate network and business in the world of online marketing.
I’ve been good friends with Jennine for a while now and it’s always exciting to see what she’s working on and how she continues to expand her network into new areas. Rextopia.com was the start and core of her business, which is the main affiliate network. Jennine knew she had to stand out from the crowd and continue to adapt her network and business with the changing industry. With these changes came movements into tracking systems, pay per call networks, setting up call centers, expanding her company size and much more.
