What is Affiliate Network Marketing?
I’ve got a bit of a twist in this post, so hang in here with me!

Many people think that affiliate network marketing is simply sharing a banner or a link to another company that you are affiliated with – with the understanding that you earn a commission if someone purchases as a result of your information.
While this can be the case, many people leave out such a potent and powerful aspect of network marketing – being on a team!
you had 24/7 access to a team of like-minded people – a growing community of people who are learning marketing right beside you – and who are ready and willing to help you if you get stuck along the way?
Can you put a price tag on that?
Regardless of the company you are promoting, the addition of a marketing team to walk beside you can give you super leverage in a number of critical areas:
* Interaction (you don’t have to go it alone)
* Idea Generation
* Suggestions and Analysis of your own ideas
* Sharing Skill-sets of Expertise
and the list goes on.
Let’s face it – no ONE single person can be good at everything these days.
Google changes what they like and everyone scrambles to figure out the “next greatest way to dominate the search engines” – and sells it, of course….but by the time you get it, Google may have done another 15 algorithm changes and it is no longer even relevant!
You won’t have this type of tragedy with a cutting edge team – whose members include those that are:
* SEO experts
* Funnel Experts (how to attract your target audience to you)
* Social Media Moguls
* Ad Gurus
* Coaching Experts
* Blog Consultants
If you feel like you are “missing something” in your marketing efforts, I would like to ask you one question: Are you working with a team?
There are powerful “teams” of referral networks in the offline world, such as Business Networking International (BNI) and others. And it is vital to get out in your community and let people know who you are and what you do – and get to know your colleagues as well.
But things change in the online space. Reaching people takes different skills, research can be endless unless you know what you are aiming for, and you can easily spin your wheels unless you have people to bounce ideas off of, and direction and guidance to make the most of your online efforts.
So, I have a new, up-to-date definition of Affiliate Network Marketing – you need teamwork!
Affiliation with a like-minded community of marketers will leverage your efforts in unimaginable ways!
I’m passionate about this because I have found just such a marketing team – and I have watched my own effectiveness and reach skyrocket since I got plugged in.
If you would like a preview of such a team in action, contact me for a special “by invitation only” link to an upcoming webinar.
It won’t cost you a thing to register – what do you have to lose?
Nothing but confusion, inertia, and frustration.
No matter what kind of business you have, you will greatly benefit from the support and interaction of a dynamic affiliate network marketing team.
You (and I) need teamwork!
Don’t venture into the online jungle without it!
