"I struggled for the past few years trying to make a living on the internet. One day, I came across an article that said 97% of internet-based businesses fail. I cut out and kept a quote which read: "Most affiliates earn less than their monthly utility bills from their efforts. It's the merchants who are laughing up their sleeves - the compounded effort of an army of affiliates is making them rich - not you." That was when I decided to start looking for a more profitable business - as an affiliate I was earning an average of 10 % before expenses, and it seemed like there were a million other affiliates all trying to sell the same products. Trying to rank with google and keep up with all the changes, not to mention the spiralling costs of adwords, was time-consuming and exhausting. When I heard about AustraLab, it made sense - the risk seemed low, the start-up costs were low, and the potential for profits was a heck of a lot better than anything the internet had to offer. It was the best decision I ever made - I made more profit in the first three months than I made in three years as an affiliate marketer - and in the niche I chose there is virtually no competition, so my business can only expand. Now I'm thinking of turning the tables - selling my products over the net and letting affiliates sell for me."
