Affiliate Marketing Impacts $70 Billion in sales by 2020 - Forrester Research Inc.

Affiliate Marketing will impact $70 Billion in sales by 2020. – Forrester Research, Inc.

Would you like a piece of 70 Billion dollars as an affiliate marketer? Even a small piece?

How about 1% of 70 Billion dollars? That’s $700 Million dollars. Does this sound impossible?

Ok, let’s do a half percent of $70 Billion. (.005%) That’s still $350 Million dollars.

Are you thinking, that wouldn’t happen to me?

Half Empty or Half Full?

If you can’t see the potential of these numbers for yourself, let’s check on how you look at things. 

You know the old saying, “Is the glass half empty or half full?”

The idea is that a glass filled halfway with water can be viewed in two very different ways. 

Even though the state of the glass never changes…

  • The positive view: You see the glass as half full. 
  • The negative view: You see the glass as half empty. 

The point of this ole saying is you have a choice on how you view the same glass.

You can choose to focus on what is already there. Or you can choose to focus on what is not there.

So, when you look at $70 Billion in affiliate marketing sales, look at the potential of what is already there. 

A half percent of these sales would be life-changing for you and any affiliate marketer 🙂
