Yes, the Republicans have managed to shut down the government, but, despite the negative effects this could have on the economy, and the country as a whole, it may actually be good news for affiliates. The fact of the matter is, as the Republicans continue their fight against the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, it presents a golden opportunity for affiliates to make some money by promoting insurance offers.
While Obamacare has been a hotly debated topic since President Obama arrived in office, it has never had this much publicity surrounding it. So with people flocking to the Internet, searching for news and information on health care and health insurance, now is the perfect time to start pushing health care insurance offers. Consumers will be confused on the current situation and looking for advice—and chances are that will lead to them purchasing health insurance plans and services. Over the next few months, tens of millions of dollars of healthcare coverage is going to be bought, meaning there will also be huge affiliate payouts for driving insurance leads. Now is the time to cash in on that market.
