Affiliate Marketing with a Full Time Job: Managing your time

If you’re on the fringes of affiliate marketing with your main income coming in from a full time job then perhaps this extra income could one day replace your full time job. Or maybe your happy enough with this income and you don’t want to change anything. Whichever way you choose to go, affiliate marketing is a very easy and relatively simple income generator to setup alongside your job. When you are involved in affiliate marketing and you have a full time job it can be challenging to say the least.

Balancing your time and commitments

Dealing with commitments in a busy schedule is demanding in many ways and if you have family can be a constant juggling act. So managing your time is extremely important to you as it should be, this is why you need to be organized with your affiliate programs. In a nutshell you need two or three affiliate programs that you can rely on to bring you maximum ROI which in this case is your time. The last thing you need is to be stuck in front of a computer screen for hours on end. One of the best ways to be productive and to achieve this and have fun in the process is by using social networks. By using the tools that you use everyday either at work or at home you can confidently run your affiliate programs with ease.

Setting Up your network (Automate the mundane tasks)

Many of the social networks now allow you to import and automate your timeline. Services like SocialOomph or HootSuite are fantastic time management tools that allow you to set your tweets to go out with a variety of pre-formatted messages. You can setup filters to capture followers automatically; in fact you can pretty much automate everything on the web nowadays.

Centralize Your Affiliate Dashboard

It’s all about your time, so cut out all the affiliate networks but ONE and when you have to login to check stats, you only need to do it once. Do your research and find a competitive affiliate network that has a wide choice of programs dealing with all the demographics. There are plenty to choose from but it’s important to find the right model, for example you may do better to sign up to a CPA (Cost Per Action) program or a CPC (cost per click) method, it’s all about finding that right balance and what works best for you and your circumstances.

Other Passive income streams that you can automate

AdSense and other monetization methods from blogs are an easy way to pick up passive earnings alongside affiliate programs. The best passive earnings have to be from referrals, these can be from your own affiliate network or from sub-affiliates that you have recruited from affiliate programs. Whichever way you get referrals they are long term passive earners.

MLM (multi level marketing) is at the top of the pile when it comes to earnings potential, with up to 10 levels deep you can see why. When you look for MLMs be realistic, these programs always show the nice fancy graphs and even provide you with an earnings calculator, in reality there just isn’t enough people to fill all of your levels. Getting 2 or three levels is more realistic, in the end if the program sells itself to you then crack on but if it looks like a no hoper, then why waste your time   ?

There are lots of people who have full time jobs and work part time at affiliate marketing to supplement their weekly wage. The concept is nothing new and increasingly more and more people are supplementing their income this way.
