Affiliate Marketing and Network Marketing

Difference of Affiliate Marketing to Network Marketing

Difference of Affiliate Marketing to Network MarketingWhat is Affiliate Marketing? Many claim that an affiliate marketer can make a lot of money and so network marketing. Does network marketing related to affiliate marketing? Are they the same? If they are not the same, which of them can build a larger income? These are some of the thoughts that are running in the mind of people who are planning to build a home based business and these people are looking for the one that will work best for them.

Affiliate Marketing

This type of marketing is recruiting people to sell their products in exchange of commissions. Usually it is a one time, big time sale. This is single level commission. If you persuaded one person to buy the products of the company you are affiliated for, you will get your commission and after that, you’re done. You are free to look for more people to buy to get your income. If the people who buy encourage other people to buy as well, you have no part of it anymore. You can’t make a residual income but there are other affiliate companies who give a little residual income. So, this is what you should look out for if you are planning to be an affiliate marketer.

Network Marketing

Network marketing on the other hand is very vocal in discussing multiple commissions and large amount of residual income. Unlike affiliate marketing, you do not need to focus on sale or on what to sell. Network marketing focuses on the people. They are focusing not on what to sell but on who to build. The work begins after the sale.

A network marketer focus on helping the people recruited to make a sale and to create more leaders. It is your job to build leaders that make more quality leaders. This model makes heavy residual income.

It is up to you on what you are going to choose for your home based business but one thing is for sure, the two are not the same. Affiliate marketing can make a lot of money, why not? As long as you are making a lot of sales with different people but base on how the two system work, it is definitely the network marketing business that give you the type of income you are rooting for. Be sure that you know where to give all your energy. Knowing the terms and how both works will help you decide which type of marketing you will start as your home based business.
