Every business needs more money to start up but affiliate marketing is not like that just a small amount is enough to start up it. Even we can start with zero amount that will take a long time to earn commission because you can’t get the “.com” domain on free, hard to grow the social media population on your account, etc.

So, we need to spend some dollars to build the perfect affiliate marketing to make passive income. Many successful affiliates follow the suitable affiliate marketing course and if you need to make a review of any product, first of all, need to buy and know that’s features as well.

If you spend a good investment on affiliate marketing you will get proper knowledge and more audience on your website or blog and social media. If your platform has more population you can earn more money from affiliate marketing continuously.

7.    No customer support

Individual or Company sellers offer the products or services to their customers and they are dealing with their customer’s satisfaction with what they purchased.

Affiliate marketing structure does not allow the affiliate to deal with customers satisfied. The entire job of an affiliate is to link merchants with customers, merchants will face other customers’ complaints and other deals after you get a commission from them.

Out site job, you could work more than 40-hours per week and still get the same salary.
