I mean, you don't think something like Google Adsense or Amazon Associates is a scam, do you? Sure, only a very few people make any real money at it, but those two seem fine compared to something like, I dunno, Herbalife and the like....
Isn't affiliate marketing an online thing? I don't know, you're probably not asking the right person. But what I know from Adsense and the like is that they don't sell dreams and they don't pretend not to be selling something like many MLMs do. From what I've heard, the return on the investment with those revenue streams is low, but that doesn't make them a scam, not by a long shot.
By the way, I love animals! I don't buy products that rely on killing animals and I'm vegetarian. What do you want to do with animals specifically?
Now I'm wondering if you'll have time to read and reply.
