The Prosperous Affiliate Merry-Go-Round

In the affiliate world, just as in the rest of the world, what goes around comes around.

Here's where I'm coming from . . .

I just finished reading one article too many where the author proclaims that people don't like to click on what appears to be an affiliate link.

Why not? Well, here is how the reasoning of the potential buyer supposedly goes:

? I'll bet the price is jacked up.
? Maybe the guarantee won't be honored.
? What if they don't give me all the bonuses?
? Why should some middleman make a buck off me?

So this guy takes his paranoia and stinginess and trudges off to find the original link. End of story.

Do you see anything wrong with this?

I see everything wrong with it. Or at least now I do, once I stopped to ponder why I was doing the same thing!

I believe this situation is on the verge of changing and very quickly. Here's why?

For one thing, as more and more people are earning money by promoting other people's products, affiliate marketing is becoming more widely regarded as a legitimate business form.

This is in large measure thanks to Rosalind Gardner, creator of the Super Affiliate Handbook. http://www.Calling-All-Entrepreneurs.com/SAH.html

(Notice how proudly I displayed my affiliate link?)

Now, as increasing numbers of people engage in this type of promotion, it is rapidly becoming common knowledge that if you buy from an affiliate, you are in actuality buying directly from the owner or creator of the product. Hence, the following holds true:

? The price to you, the potential buyer, is the same, regardless of how you got there.
? The guarantee, which is being issued from the product owner, is still valid.
? You are set up to receive all bonuses, advertised and unadvertised, that the owner offers. (In fact, buying from an affiliate might even net you some extra bonuses!)

And so now, that leaves only the final objection, "Why should some middleman make a buck off me?"

On the Threshold of a New Paradigm

Living as we are, on the eve of a new level of expanded consciousness, here are some notions that are quickly gaining wider acceptance:

? We attract what we focus on.
? We create our own reality.
? We attract to ourselves the same kind of energy that we send out.

This Law of Attraction is no longer regarded as some paranormal fluke. Thought power is gaining acceptance as true and verifiable by quantum physics and our own empirical evidence.

So what does that have to do with our potential buyer's final objection?

Well, when I stopped to examine why I was guilty of automatically avoiding using an affiliate link, I discovered that there was no valid reason for doing so. I mean, being that the bottom line to me is all the same, why should I want to deny someone his or her fair commission?

I had to admit that such unwarranted stinginess could only be due to an insidious belief in scarcity. I felt a little ashamed of myself, but not one to flog myself, I immediately changed my focus to how to alter my beliefs to something more desirable.

And what I found is a win-win-win situation.

If a marketer brings a product to my attention or convinces me of its value or presents it to me at the time I am willing to buy it, this affiliate has clearly earned his or her commission. And it's a pretty sweet deal all the way around:

? The owner is happy because he has just earned money for a sale he would probably not have otherwise made.
? The affiliate is happy because his marketing efforts are paying off.
? I get my product AND I put money into the pockets of at least two people.

And that makes me happy, because sending money into circulation sets me up for being on the receiving end. And giving a figurative pat on the back to the affiliate marketer raises my vibration to attract the same type of rewards in my life. And you know what else? It just FEELS so much better to do it this way.

I think people are unaware of the many ways that poisonous thinking can still lurk menacingly in their brains, stuffed away in odd little pockets of stingy behavior like this.

When you stop to consider that so many of us were raised by parents or grandparents who lived through the Great Depression, it's easy to understand how we may have inherited more from our families than what meets the eye.

But I digress. Let's just all be part of a prosperity movement that has no interest in denying anyone their fair due. After all, there is plenty to go around for everybody.

Just like a carnival carousel, what goes around comes around.

May your affiliate coffers swell!
