Creating Your Own Products Vs Affiliate Programs – The Key to Online Wealth

There are many niches out there on the internet from which to make money. These niches range from Dog Training to Weight Loss and everything in between. The problem is once you have decided on which niche you think you will profit from most how do you go about making those first few dollars, the first steps into the Internet Marketing world? That is where there are many different opinions on which works best but the majority of people have decided that it is either product creation or becoming an affiliate.

Affiliate Marketing has a whole load of benefits when compared with product creation, the main one being that you don’t have to create a product yourself. This is really the biggest benefit there is, most products take anywhere from a couple of weeks to 6 months and a few even take years to finally be brought up to scratch. This is something which affiliate marketers never have to do themselves, they simply wait for the products to launch and then promote this product to their subscribers. Also, as many affiliate programs offer between at least 45-55% it is no wonder that affiliate marketing is so popular, half of the rewards for a whole lot less than half of the work.

If affiliate marketing really is this great how come there are so many product creators out there? The answer is, that product creation is usually where the biggest rewards are online. Think about it for a second, you have spent months creating the perfect product, knowing that it has a killer sales page and upsells which you would be insane to miss out on, then you launch the product and watch the money roll in and you have to do no more work yourself, you don’t even have to have a list. That is the huge benefit of product creation, if it is your own product you don’t need a list, you simply need to find someone with a big enough list to promote your product. From this you can even build your own list, as we all know, the money is in the list, but with product creation that list doesn’t have to be your own.

Product Creation or Affiliate Marketing? A hard question to answer definitively either way. The truth is that without product creators online there would be no such niche as Affiliate Marketing, and without Affiliate Marketers helping with the promotion of these products there would be far fewer products online and even less Internet Marketers willing to put the time and effort into creating these products. At the end of the day, it is up to YOU to decide which team you are on.
