How do I become a real estate affiliate marketing agent in Nigeria? This is a question a friend asked me sometime ago so I decided to treat it here for others who might have the same question.
Without doubt, real estate industry is one of the most lucrative industry ever known to mankind that have stood the test of time. Unfortunately, only the rich seems to be tapping into this lucrative industry year in year out because of the “assumed” huge capital investment involved.
The truth is that anyone can tap into this lucrative industry and make huge profit irrespective of his/her financial status or educational background. All you need do is to find a reputable real estate company you can join as an affiliate and you’re in business. I’m doing it so are many other Nigerians.
Although, not many real estate agency in Nigeria have well structured affiliate marketing program in place and as a precaution, you’ll need to be careful when making your real estate affiliate program choice else you’ll end up wasting precious time and at the same time putting your would-be clients at grave financial risks.
Once you’ve chosen your real estate company and have gone through the necessary procedures to fully become their agent, you’ll want to start talking to people like friends, acquaintances, colleagues at work, religious members, neighbors and of course, the general public about your real estate investment opportunity.
