I may be wrong, but I may be right.
Recently, in the last 2 weeks, I've read over a dozen ebooks, reports on how to make your first 100 dollars online.
From Marlon Sanders to Randall Magwood and a score of others, the majority say AFFILIATE MARKETING is the ticket; the fasted, easiest, lowest cost way of earning moolah online.
I say PHOOEY.
Selling stuff is just as easy, often faster, test it put your big TV on the front porch for say, 20 bux, I guarantee it will sell faster than you can say affiliate marketing.
So, chatteling beats it hands down, 6 days a week.
And then, I say INFORMATION selling beats it 5 days a week.
And, although, I did a lot of affiliate marketing, and did as good as the effort I put into it, I am still of the opinion there are better less sloppy and less messy ways of making a buck or two.
But, I could be wrong.
So, I have been challenged, behind the scenes actually, so can't give great details.
But I'm up against an eCom guy who has a mentor, successful and is providing a complete turtorial on how to sell stuff (ebay, amazon, craigslist, and all things online)...
And up against an affiliate marketer, who has taken on a couple of students and we'll let the results stand on their own.
The only thing I asked for in this"friendly wager" was, a fair and accurate accounting of the TIME SPENT too, if they are going to garage sales or Thrift stores or Goodwill, or time spent on software, websites, learning curves...
to be fair, most of these guys DO NOT account for the amount of time it takes to learn the ready to use Wordpress site with plug ins and add ons.
So, this as much background as I am willing to share for now, not just to get someone to their first 100 bux, but to that first 1k, 10k and then 10k a month maybe before a year goes bye bye.
We'll see. I could be wrong.
But as of today, I'll take chatteling and Infopreneuring over affliate/ecom every day of the week.
