Affiliate Marketing For Retirees

Affiliate Marketing For RetireesAffiliate Marketing For Retirees : In this article we are going to discuss whether affiliate marketing is something retirees or those approaching retirement should consider as a way of increasing their retirement income or “pension pot

We feel we are well qualified to write about this subject given that we have been generating a “retirement income” online for nine years now through affiliate marketing.  When we started we were in our mid fifties and now in our mid sixties.

We’ve written many books on the subject as well as taught and trained hundreds of people all around the world.  It works for us and we firmly believe it can work for you too.

Let’s explain first what affiliate marketing is and how it works

What Is Affiliate Marketing & How Does It Work

There is no need to complicate this.  It is simply one person helping another sell something to someone else and in return receiving a payment usually known as a commission.  There are various ways and means this is done but suffice to say most affiliate marketing is done online which makes it a perfect solution for retirees or soon to be retirees as it’s a perfect location free business.

In practice affiliate affiliate marketing looks like this and we’ll use ourselves as an example:-

Chris and Susan as affiliate marketers promote (market) a product or products of Peter (the merchant).  Stuart (the customer) sees the product being marketed by Chris and Susan and purchases the product.  Peter then pays Chris and Susan a commission on that sale. Everyone is happy.  The customer, the affiliate and the merchant.

Affliate Marketing For RetireesThe world really is the oyster for the affiliate marketer (Chris and Susan in this instance).  They decide on the type of products they want to promote and then finds different ways to promote (market) those products such as having a website (like this one you are reading this article on), through video on YouTube for example, PPC (pay per click) on Google, Bing, Facebook etc.

The affiliate must find the merchant(s) that sell the products they want to promote and join their affiliate program.  They are provided with a unique link to promote the product so that when a customer buys from that link the merchant knows that Chris and Susan made the sale and he can then pay them their commission.

There are lots of places to find products to promote such as Clickbank, Commission Junction, JVZoo, Warrior Forum etc

There are hundreds if not thousands of niches and products that can be sold in this way and we recommend you choose one that best suites you and which you are passionate about.  We personally work primarily in the education and training niche and sell digital products within that niche.

What Do You Need To Be An Affiliate Marketer

There are some essential tools you will need to be successful as an affiliate marketer. The ONE you absolutely must have is a computer.  Given us retirees want to travel then a laptop computer is perfect for this.  So many times we hear of people trying to run an online business on a smart phone or a tablet and it really doesn’t work although they are absolutely great tools to have in combination with a laptop (we couldn’t be without our iphones when we are travelling).

The other essential tool is KNOWLEDGE.  We don’t mean you need to be an expert but you do need to know how online marketing works and what you have to do to be successful with it. That’s exactly whey we wanted to promote online business education.  Like anything new, you need to know HOW TO DO IT to be successful at it!

We actually created a training site called Online Business Essentials which explains in more detail and you can join up for free and go through our basic training.  The way to gain the necessary knowledge is through on online training program and whilst there are some very good ones there are also some very bad ones and some are outright scams!

It’s why for initial training on affiliate marketing we created our own but we also work with programs that have our seal of approval and you will find further information on these on our website here

Why Affiliate Marketing For Retirees

Speaking again from experience these are the reasons that we would highlight

  • Small capital outlay – just a computer to start
  • Relatively low operating costs
  • Can be done from anywhere where there is an internet connection
  • No physical effort
  • Can be done part time while you are still working if you haven’t yet retired (that’s what we did)
  • You set your own hours
  • You are your own boss
  • No limit to what income you can generate

In summary, affiliate marketing is a great business for someone in or approaching retirement as it gives us flexibility in the hours we work but knowing we are going to need additional income, we can do so while doing something interesting and new.

It is going to involve some work particularly in the early days when it is all new but the thought that you are doing something where you are your own boss and can work the hours you choose is definitely a great reason.

We hope we have given you food for thought writing this article and whether affiliate marketing is something you want to consider.  It works for us and has given us the freedom, flexibility and income to enjoy this stage of our life and we hope it can do that for you too 🙂

Knowledge Business Blueprint Review

Knowledge Business Blueprint Review

Knowledge Business Blueprint ReviewKnowledge Business Blueprint Review : In this article we’re going to share with you our review of the Knowledge Business Blueprint known for short as KBB.  We’re not writing this review as one of those who reviews ‘things‘ based on hearesay as you so often see or to send the reader to another offer.  We just don’t work like that; it’s not our style and if you are a regular visitor to our website you know that.  However to be 100% transparent, we are affiliate marketers and this page contains affiliate links meaning if you purchase a product through one of them, we will receive a commission (at no additional cost to you). We only ever endorse products that we have personally used and benefitted from personally 🙂

Entrepreneurs today operate in a business world that’s different from their parents’. Years ago everyone had a job that defined them but today it’s very different and the self education explosion has opened up all kinds of opportunities for people of all ages but especially those like ourselves in the second stage of life with so much knowledge at our fingertips.  We realised back in 2009/10 that an online business leveraging our existing knowledge and the knowledge of others was what would sustain our future and provide a rich retirement – not in terms of income but doing something we were passionate, having an impact on other people’s lives and about and leaving a legacy.

With advent of the internet, and the cost of higher education  there is a growing movement toward self-education today. This trend is expected to explode as we approach 2020 and beyon

What Is The Knowledge Business Blueprint Course?

The Knowledge Business BlueprintKBB as it’s known for short  is best summarised as a game changing new self-learning system consists of two components:

  • The Knowledge Business Blueprint Course
  • Mindmint Software

The two big name people behind this learning system who you will instantly recognise are Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi.

The course shows people everything they need to know to extract their knowledge, fill an event and make sure it runs smoothly for a huge profit while the software handles all of the logistics. There was literally (according to sources) $500k spent to produce the software alone to make running a successful e-learning and mastermind effortless so who wouldn’t want access to that!

But The Knowledge Business Blueprint is not just for people who want to run masterminds and events (we’ve run both albeit on a smaller scale and we can tell you it’s a very steep learning curve and we wished we had received this kind of training without having to figure it out ourselves!) It’s for people who have a skill, knowledge, expertise, passion or hobby they want to know how to create a business and generate an income from as well as what we would call ‘the icing on the cake‘, people who want to leverage the knowlege of other people- a knowledge broker.  That of course is what we as affiliate marketing entrepreneurs do and we have personally been doing since we began our online business.

Inside the Knowledge Business Blueprint

There are four modules inside the Knowledge Business Blueprint course and each module is broken down into trainings each with a video training, notes, MP3, PDF and tools to help you create success from what you have learned

Whilst the titles may seem on the face of it strange the content inside of each is outstanding and whilst the course was originally designed to help people with knowledge create masterminds and events there is far more to it than you can imagine… and let’s not forget a mastermind or event can be online not just a physical event!

  • MODULE 1: EXTRACT IT
  • MODULE 2: FILL IT
  • MODULE 3: RUN IT
  • MODULE 4: KNOWLEDGE BROKER

So often we meet wanabee entrepreneurs who just don’t get past step one in setting up their business because they don’t understand the basic concepts of commitment to a business, clarity of their purpose and the belief they can achieve the results they desire.

Module one of The Knowledge Business Blueprint (KBB) is taught by the master – Tony Robbins and is first clas,s spoken from the heart not some scripted training.  We’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on courses and our education but can say with certainty this is going to be a turning point for people who have not had success before because Module 1 is all about the mindset behind success.  We’ve always been passionate about this aspect of any business and was the first book we every wrote because without it how can any entrepreneur take that leap from the conditioned employee mindset.

If you can’t quite get to grips with the concept we wrote an earlier article “The Advantages Of A Knowledge Based Business” which should put this into perspective.  Why now is the best time to take advantage of the information age and the massive shift towards self education.

If you want to find out more about the course and whether this would be something you want to be a part of join us Tony, Dean and Russell for a LIVE Webcast on 30th April

Get the information straight from those who have created this amazing The Knowledge Business Blueprint course and Mindmint software
