The BEST Business To Start Online? (Affiliate Marketing or Dropshipping)


what’s going to fill up your PayPal
account faster drop shipping or affiliate marketing that’s what I want
to talk about in this video because they’re both two completely different
things but they both make a lot of money for people so what one is actually right
for you so you’ve probably seen a big trend of drop shipping online everyone’s
doing it it was trying to do it people are failing people are succeeding but
there’s also a flair marketing that’s really really big and there’s actually
tends to be a lot more passive in the long run than drop shipping so I’m going
to talk about both of these things it’s really important to talk about these and
we’re gonna start from kinda like the beginning to the end so let’s get
started the first thing you look to think about is how much time do you have
because these things have a different amount of time that they need to make
them successful so for example drop shipping you’re gonna need quite a lot
of time to test products fill orders deal with refunds and stuff like that
when you first start now later on you can get a team on board but when you’re
first starting it’s gonna take you a lot of time now with affiliate marketing you
have a couple of options so it depends on what you want to do first of all you
can literally go on YouTube right now start a YouTube channel and do a video
on how to create a website and put a link in the description for an affiliate
link for a hosting service right that doesn’t take very long to do and it
literally doesn’t really cost anything doesn’t cost any money but we’ll talk
about that in a second or you can go out and do what we call search engine
optimization and you rank websites in Google but that can take quite a long
time three or four months before you start to see some money roll in drop
shipping you see the money coming a lot faster that it does take a lot of time
to test and find winners that can take days it can take weeks it could take
months or it might never even happen so there’s that that’s the one thing you’ve
got to first figure out is how much time do you have in your day or your week or
your life to actually do these two things so our drop shipping a lot of
time however you can go and try free stuff get sales for free but you’re
probably gonna have to do search engine optimization for that anyway so in my
opinion you probably want to steer towards the Follette marketing if you
have to go and do that for other reasons and we’ll talk about that in a second so
time is the first major factor the next thing is
money how much money do you have dropshipping you’re gonna be looking at
at least minimum $500 plus after you’ve bought a course or whatever to start
doing it you need to do Facebook advertising Facebook advertising isn’t
free it essentially becomes free later on once you start to get money rolling
in but you’re gonna have to have some upfront cost I know you don’t pay much
you don’t paint it up for a cost on products but advertising you have to get
some money because I have to you have to put some money in it because if you
don’t you’re not going to get any traffic now affiliate marketing is kind
of the same it depends so let’s say you want to do paid affiliate marketing
which is when you do CPA stuff like but that’s really advanced you don’t really
if you’re a beginner you don’t want to miss with that okay you don’t want to
miss with CPA any of that type of stuff there’s a lot of conversion optimization
there’s a lot of money involved with that type of stuff but if you’re very
very short on money I would recommend a fillip marketing because there’s a lot
less stress so what you would I would recommend you do is go and learn how to
do search engine optimization ranked websites and rank YouTube videos at the
top it’s essentially low maintenance because these timers there’s not much
time involved it’s just doing stuff after working at slowly ranks but the
thing is you can do most of the search engine optimization for free you might
pay 10 bucks a year for a domain name for a website and let’s say 3 dollars a
month usually for a toaster website so the cost is really really low and search
engine optimization is free to do if you can build the links yourself you can
rank these websites and Google yourself and you can learn how to do pretty much
all of that on line so you have to like in this video I’m not saying one is
better than the other I’m trying to outline the pros and cons so you can
decide which one is the best for you number one a drop shipping is gonna cost
you quite a bit of money to start with but essentially you are gonna make
profit a lot quicker once you have that one in product you could go from let’s
say you’re a thousand dollars in the hole you’ve put a thousand bucks in you
haven’t made me profit and then you hit a winner you could make a million
dollars by the end of the year well fulfilling at marketing if you initially
paid marketing which you can do as well but
it’s the same thing you’ll put a lot more on the hole before you start making
money back but if you don’t a search engine optimization to make a million
dollars with search engine optimization affiliate marketing it’s gonna take a
very long time but you can easily do six figures a year but it just takes a
longer time to get their money to start coming in and then it’s just a matter of
scaling putting money back in so it just really comes down to what what you’re
willing to do okay so time and money is the first two major factors now the one
that I another factor is customer service so you know it really depends on
what like what time person you are see I have a team that does customer service
my drop shipping stuff but with a flip marketing there’s literally no customer
service you are promoting a product that the other person deals with all of that
stuff so there’s a really bitty big plus there you literally a send the traffic
that that’s all you do drop shipping you have to deal with a lot of stuff so kind
of I don’t mind that but it really depends but then again with affiliate
marketing some people don’t you know don’t wanna do a YouTube video you know
I met quite a bit of money from affiliate marketing for YouTube and the
SEO stuff I don’t have to show my face but you know even though you don’t have
to deal with customers on the flip marketing sometimes if you want to be
successful affiliate marketing and like YouTube and stuff you have to show your
face we don’t have to but it does help with personal branding and stuff like
that with drop shipping you’re not the brand the website is a brand and stuff
like that so essentially you’re going to show your face and stuff so it’s kind of
has nothing to do with customer service but I want to throw that in there in
case you’re wondering do I need to put my face in this and that because I know
that can put a lot of people off starting to work online so we have kind
of the time the money the customer support there is literally no customer
support with affiliate marketing there is quite a lot of customer support of
dropshipping I’m going to tell you the truth here you are going to get
complaints you are gonna get refunds and you are going to have to deal with those
accordingly that’s really part of the game with that the next thing is passive
how passive is dropshipping compared to affiliate marketing as dropshipping
really truly passive because essentially you have to put in a lot of work and
what I mean passive is one day you want your online
business to run sufficiently without you doing much work so with drop shipping
it’s not passive for a long time you have to put in a lot of work you have to
find a a winner you have to get a team together if you really want to become
passive so with drop shipping it does become passive later on but not super a
passive passive because you have to have a you have to either deal with the
customers yourself run your store yourself find products to stuff it will
get a team to do it to become truly passive with affiliate marketing it does
become very very passive in the long run so like for example I have sites right
now that I started two years ago they have gone down and revenue quite a bit
because I haven’t really touched the sites but they still make a money today
I have a video on my youtube channel how to create a website and I actually just
got three sales from that today commissioners and sometimes I get four
or five a day so and that videos done two years ago right so affiliate
marketing is really really super honest truly passive in the long run it is
really apparent especially if you can get people onto monthly subscriptions
for something for a software for a products or eath know that it becomes
really really passive drop shipping on the other side on the other hand yes it
becomes passive but you you really have to build a team to for it to become
truly truly passive so what once the best drop shipping or affiliate
marketing in my opinion if you were just starting online and you have absolutely
no idea where you should start and you know you’re getting flooded with the
drop shipping videos I would honestly recommend looking into a flare marketing
because it’s not big right now no one’s really jumping on a flip marketing
entrenched trends and essentially you can start for free there’s no excuse you
can go and start a YouTube channel you can go and start a blog blog a lot of
people said blogs I did nope I have two I have three blogs now if she just
started a new one but the other two blocks both of those blogs do six
figures per year for me and one of them I haven’t touched in a year in a bit and
one of them I still work on but blogs and YouTube channels
really really passive and you can start those well blog will cost you maybe 20
30 bucks the year to run but a YouTube channel is completely free for you to
start our drop shipping I would recommend if you have a lot of a lot
more time if you have at least $500 plus but probably more like a thousand plus
to be realistic to start your drop shipping business drop shipping you
don’t have to show your face okay don’t do any of that however you have to deal
with customer service affiliate marketing you don’t have to show your
face but it is better if you do because you you create a personal brand but it
depends what kind of a flip marketing you’re going to do if you don’t do
YouTube then you should really it’ll help if you’re not going to do YouTube
and you’re going to go and do a affiliate blog online will you rank in
Google you can use a persona or a pin name username so you don’t have to show
your face right so it really depends on what you
want to do and I recommend you stick to one thing because that’s what a lot of
people get distracted by so as people come into my econ course and then a week
later they’re like hey Frank I wanna jump into your affiliate course nice no
no no triathlon fried rock show you first then if that isn’t really what you
want to do then jump into the affiliate stuff
don’t try and do both at once so that’s my opinion guys it really comes down to
those things they both make a lot of money but really in my opinion of flip
Marketing is better in the long run and better for a beginner drop shipping has
been at if you have the time and you will make a lot of money if you followed
people’s guides and you actually put in the time and effort into that but then
if you let’s say six months later you haven’t made any money with drop
shipping and you’ve spent thousands of dollars like some people do honestly
just stop it’s clearly not working for you move on to something else there’s so
much stuff you can do online a flip marketing you can share information
products you can do consulting you can build funnels for people you can build
websites for people you can be a middleman and sell final I build files
before people take the money and you can pay someone else to build the funnel for
you and take a cat there’s so much you can do online so just don’t get stuck on
one thing if something’s not working for you six months a year down the track and
still feeling money into that it’s a dead business for you it’s not gonna
work alright guys that’s it for this video pick what you want to do
time money watch more pestered feel in the end and I’ll see you guys next video

  1. Just by watching your YouTube videos and going through your eCom Elites courses I've been able to generate over $2k in the past 2 months! thanks a lot!!!

  2. Great info Frank! It's just really funny how the dropshipping being pushes a lot in 2017 and now everyone is pushing Affiliate marketing and Funnel system.

  3. Ok Franklin Hatchett but with instagram Affiliation marketing has become easier. You don't have to wait the same amount of time than Google SEO to get results. What do you think ??

  4. Frank mate, I already run a profitable store but I wanted to get into Affiliate Marketing. Can I start with it by using FB Ads?

  5. Been into drop shipping for a year now and slowly transitioning to affiliate market. Found this platform that makes it really easy for beginners to get a hang of affiliate marketing. You are not required to sell anything to get a commission. All you have to do is promote their platform to people like yourself. Yes you get a commission for every referral generated that oppenes a free account with them and another commision if your referral gets active on that platform. You do not have to convince anyone to take out their credit card and spend their hard earned dollars in order to get your first commissions. Pretty cool gig to begin your journey with right? if interested just ask for the link and I will post it here if Franklin allows.

  6. I figured that $500 plus seems like a lot… but after time it's all spread out, over a whole lot of days so it doesn't seem like much at the time 🙂

  7. Im making about 2k USD a month with affiliate via SEO but I am struggling to get good traffic with Bing and Facebook in order to scale my business. It seems so hard and expensive.

  8. Thanks for the vid Franklin. Where would you recommend learning about google SEO? Do you recommend a specific channel or video series or anything?

  9. After 10 years Dropshipping and doing 7 figures !! started Affiliate marketing & traffic Expert 4 years ago and it's awesome !!! You just have to do it right , right products, right traffic, right mindset !!!

  10. Thanks Frank! Great content here as always!! I'm ranking my newest affiliate site through SEO right now.

  11. Hey Frank, great stuff as always.

    I've had a super clean looking dropshipping store for about 6 months nowand have done about $2800, but Ive been so overwhelmed with information that I don't even know how to continue advertising. I listed my store on the exchange and had dozens of interested buyers (which is why I know the store is great).

    This got me excited again. But now my question for you is what is the best strategy to use for facebook ads? Do you have a video you can point me to? I know how to set up ads and everything, but I don't understand how to choose which product to start with, what kind of picture to use for that ad or especially which interests to start with.

    I realize that it's different for each niche, but if you could point me down a general direction that would be amazing.
    Also, what kind of private mentoring do you do? Even a 10 minute phone call?

  12. Hi Frank,

    I wanna do affiliate marketing with clickbank but the problem is there is not French product ? How can i promote french product please ?

    Thank you 🙂

  13. Just do both. Dropshipping probably has more potential money I would say though.

    Affiliate Marketing is easier, but less money potential in my opinion.

  14. i have been using the payolee partners affiliate program they pay 75% recurring monthly revenue and its FREE to join, sometimes they even pay up to $420/sale dm me AT

    brianbjohnson17 on twitter

    or brianjchambers85 AT gmail

  15. Do you ever have time for yourself being a dropshipper? everyone makes it sound like there is ZERO me time and they just work work work. Obviously anything takes time and effort to be successful but i'd like to know if being in dropshipping gives you the option for me time as well as working on your products?
