The truth is…there is NO magic button to push and send affiliate marketers a tsunami of cash. I wish that was possible, but the button only starts working when YOU do. Most of our problems come with too many shiny objects that someone has convinced us we must have in order to be successful.
Guilty as charged. I have more shiny objects waiting for me than either of us will admit. Do not do it! Save your money. Work with the ones you already have in your storage system.
NOBODY is going to give you the keys to the vault. IF they had all the answers, their bank account would be so full of money that they would be on a cruise around the world or sitting on the terrace of their private property. You can be sure that they are NOT thinking of teaching you how to make money. Believe me, I know them personally, I already have the shirt.
Now, let’s see if we can at least find some value in this message. Affiliate marketing offers many opportunities to earn money, making it one of the fastest growing industries on the web. Billions (with a B) are earned each year. It is attractive and attracts many people to seek their fortune, but there is plenty of room for you and me, since saturation is not possible.
Whatever you choose to do, get a coach, a teacher, with the knowledge to guide you. It’s serious work, not for weak or shiny item hunters. Affiliate marketing requires your best effort, perseverance to reach the finish line called success.
Be realistic in your expectations. Set reasonable goals that you want to achieve. Don’t start with the idea of earning a million dollars in the next 30 days, it’s not going to happen. Most start with $1,000 hope of achievement and give it their best effort. Does everyone make it? Absolutely not! Just don’t give up without giving affiliate marketing a fair test.
Good things are happening in the market. More and more people are discovering affiliate marketing, which should lead to more success. First, choosing the “right” program is step #1 before you can start your business.
Never, EVER try to market a product or software without personal experience, use of the product, or some people will consider it a fraud. It’s like driving a FORD to work and trying to sell a CHEVY to your prospects.
Value is the key consideration for every product. Your future customers are not concerned about your commission but about your personal testimonial of their own successes with the product. IF you can’t witness the value, the money you’ve earned, or give me a good reason to buy, forget about trying to pressure someone else. Just good business ethics that pay big dividends.
If the product or software owner doesn’t make money, don’t expect me to throw my money down the same mousetrap and lose it too. We’re looking for something that will excite our shoppers when they follow our lead. I would never promote an affiliate product without knowing that it has proven value.
Affiliate marketers are looking for the next gold mine, CASH COW, not a problem down the road. How often can you expect to get paid your commissions? Some merchants pay immediately, while others wait for a month or two, which is not very exciting to be on the waiting list.
