It really depends what your biz is.
Last year I recommended my real life bff Dashlane (a password manager system - yep, you bet that's an affiliate link!) and I got 6 months premium for free!
It's honestly just a bit of a mindset tweak (which I cover in the course) and suddenly you'll be seeing the potential to make/save money with affiliate marketing everywhere.
I've yet to come across a client who 100% can't incorporate a little bit of affiliate marketing into their business.
And I want to keep emphasising how low key and easy what I'm going to be teaching is. There's no complex anything for you to set up!
Plus, just because you're not B2B doesn't mean you don't know other business owners... and other business owners need software, courses, etc - just like you!
Nope. I don't mean to brag (but I'm hella proud of it!), but in 2015 I was Denise Duffield-Thomas' 5th best affiliate, and I had no list. I had started as a VA maybe 4 months prior.
Affiliate marketing success (at least the way I teach it) has nothing to do with conversion rates or anything like that. I am way too lazy to calculate conversion rates for the affiliate marketing stuff I do.
There's so many ways to incorporate affiliate marketing into your business (which I cover in the course). Some obviously take more time than others, but it can be as little as 5 - 10 mins a couple of times a month.
Like anything, the more you do, the better the results, but for me, at this point, I'm spending maybe 5 hours a month specifically on affiliate marketing and getting the kind of results I am.
Affiliate marketing is hands down the easiest way I know to make money. I say it's worth finding little bits of time for!
I don't feel scammy. Do you think I'm scammy? I really hope not. I only recommend products I've personally used.
When businesses are promoting their products and services - who better to do so than the people who actually use them? They're just thanking you for doing marketing for them.
