Welcome back and thank you for visiting my next blog 🙂
While I only introduced myself in the previous blog, it is now time to dive deeper into what exactly affiliate marketing is why I decided to start with affiliate marketing!
What is affiliate marketing
Okay, so what is affiliate marketing? Well, affiliate marketing is a form of marketing that lets you promote other people’s products or services. In return, you will be rewarded with a commission. So, when the person you’re promoting the product for sells that product because of you, you will receive compensation for your efforts in the form of money.
This commission is usually a predetermined percentage of the value of the product you’re offering. The amount of money you can earn is therefore dependent on a) how expensive the product is and b) the percentage of that value you’re getting as a commission.
Always make sure you promote products with a good commission! When you do this, affiliate marketing will be a great and honest way to make money online! After all, both you and the actual seller of the product will profit since you’re both making money and your customer will be happy with the product. I’d call that a win-win-win situation 🙂
Making money with affiliate marketing vs. webshops
A very important difference between making money with affiliate marketing and with products from my own webshops is that I don’t have to make a big investment in a stock of products. You don’t need to buy any products, rent a warehouse to store the products, and pack the products to send them to your customers. Additionally, you don’t have to pay for shipping costs (or return costs) or offer customer support. Sounds pretty amazing, right?
Of course, that doesn’t mean that owning your own webshop with products won’t be fun to do. On the contrary! I really love the contact I have with my customers! However, I definitely don’t like everything that I have to do. And some things just cost a lot of time and money without getting the results I’m hoping for. That’s why I think that making money with affiliate marketing will be absolutely great! I can’t wait to actually start with this new challenge and earn my first commission!
The Iceberg Effect
You’re probably wondering ‘how do I even begin’? Well, let me tell you how it began for me. I was just aimlessly scrolling through Facebook until I suddenly came across an advertisement that really caught my attention:
“Learn the untold secrets that most affiliate marketers don’t know and the Guru’s don’t tell you about”.
It turned out to be a reference to the book by Dean Holland called ‘The Iceberg Effect’. To be completely honest with you, I had my doubts at first… Would someone really want to honestly share their experiences? Nevertheless, it wouldn’t let me go. In the end, I just decided to go for it and order the book. At worst, I would lose a few dollars, but I really hoped I would learn a lot more about making money online.
And let me tell you, I’m so happy that I made the decision to order ‘The Iceberg Effect’!
In his book, Dean tells his readers that he started with absolutely nothing. However, because of affiliate marketing and finding a good mentor, he is now able to make a lot of money with his company called InternetProfits! He even developed his own method of making money online with affiliate marketing. And the most beautiful thing of all: Dean has a wealth of experience which he would love to share with other people 🙂
Did I pique your interest? Do you also want to make money with affiliate marketing and read this new book by Dean Holland? If so, I have some amazing news for you! Because I started working with Dean, you are now able to temporarily order ‘The Iceberg Effect’ for FREE! You only need to cover a few dollars in shipping and handling costs and the book will be sent to you no matter where you are in the world! Amazing right?
Dean Holland as a mentor
One thing became immediately clear to me after reading Dean’s book: I want Dean Holland to be my mentor and I want to become a so-called InternetProfits partner! I have to be honest with you. I didn’t expect myself to make this decision so very quickly since I have come across many scammers in my time as an online entrepreneur… I’ve become quite sceptical about these kinds of things because of it. However, with Dean, it just feels right!
“Mentorship is simply learning from the mistakes and mastery of a successful person in his/her field”
I really believe this could work. So much so that I actually already started dreaming about a brighter future. Because, let’s be honest: having a lot of money might not make you happy, but it does make life a lot easier 🙂 Everyone can dream big, but you always have to start small. That’s why I’ve set this first goal for myself: get 1 commission. I will be happy if I achieve this first goal, no matter how high the commission will be (even if it’s just $1!).
Before I can actually start trying to achieve this first goal and make money with affiliate marketing, I have to take the first step and become an InternetProfits certified partner! Being a partner, I will learn all about affiliate marketing in order to ‘leverage’ Deans knowledge and products.

Also, please let me know what your thoughts are on affiliate marketing and what (if any) your experiences are with it! I would love to hear from you 🙂
Until next time!
