One way to grow a business is to create a strong sales force. Building your own sales force used to be very expensive, and due to that, it was a substantial barrier to entry for product creators.
Thankfully, due to the advent of amazing online tracking technology, you can not only become a salesperson yourself for many different products and creators, but you can also create your own products to sell.
Using affiliate technology, you can also build a sales force that can bring in multiple six figures and even millions of dollars - all without hiring employees. You only pay your sales force (affiliates) if they make a sale. As an affiliate (salesperson), you only earn money if you make a sale.
