hey, so I stepped away from MLM and choose to go down the affiliate side ….. why ? I hear you ask..
Lots of reasons to be honest , been nearly 5 years doing mlm and Iv seen the industry change ( my opinion only ). Lots of spamming people, fake promises, not learning how to network properly and the one I really dont like to see is the nasty way some people can be. Dont get me wrong , MLM can work for some people but I want to keep my hair and sanity lol so Iv stepped back .
Im not being a neg head either as I have met some lovely very successful people over the last 5 years who I will always have a friendship and support them .
So what am I doing I hear you ask ?
Im doing an amazing course with John Thornhill called Partnership to Success, He takes you through step by step, building your blog, learning affiliate and creating my own digital products !!!! Super excited about this. Will pop a link here incase you want to see what its all about https://sharonhoggan.com/268b
What Is Affiliate Marketing ?
If you’re unfamiliar with affiliate marketing, its really pretty simple
- Promote products/services on your blog.
- Add special links to those products/services in your content.
- When your readers click those links (or purchase products after clicking those links), you get a cut of the profits from the merchant.
In other words, affiliate marketing is a lot like commissioned sales. The difference is you’re driving traffic and leads to the merchant/advertiser’s website through your blog posts.
No more team building
No More Sales Targets
No more uplines
I truly am my own boss now, I know people state self employed but your still working for a company. First time in a long time I feel relaxed, no more end of month madness or feeling under pressure. Im doing something I love.
How to Become an Affiliate Marketer

How to Promote Affiliate Links
Affiliate marketers are always looking out for unique opportunities to promote their affiliate links and maximize their earnings. Here are some ideas for you…
Write a engaging reviews about the products you promote. Study each product carefully before you promote it so you can provide honest information and think about exactly what your audience needs. Never pressure them to buy the products, but include your affiliate link several times in your review so that they have a few chances to click through.
Always be thinking about how you can get your audience to join your email list. This way, you can reach them at a later date by email anytime you have a new review or a product is having a sale or a special promotion.
Social platforms are great opportunities to reach more of your ideal audience. Visual platforms are especially great for promoting affiliate products, like YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, etc., because you can really show your audience how the product works.
Affiliate Marketing Is a Huge Opportunity But only if you know what you’re doing. That means jumping in and expecting money to fall on your lap wont just happen. Just like any other type of industry, you can’t dive into the deep end without first getting your feet wet. Study up on what affiliate marketing is about via these top blogs, then figure out if it’s a doable option for increasing your income.
So I hope Iv covered why I left MLM for Affiliate Marketing now….
Hope you all follow me on my journey
