Affiliate Programs: Why They Work and Why They Don't!
Here it is in Black and White:
Don't make the same mistakes many new
marketers do. Don't give up!
I've heard tons of discouraging stories about
affiliate programs. And, quite honestly, I was
one of them some years ago.
It is a common story. You get into the Internet,
surf a bit, find this website about how you can
make money and say: "Baboooom, I can do it too".
So you start TRYING to sell marketing products,
ebooks and money tree schemes. You try getting a
referral that will get a referral that will get
100 referrals promoting a supposed "marketing tactic".
The fact is that 95% of these people don't ever
make a single red cent.
Fact #1 - Because most of these "gold mines" do not
work and many of the products are junk.
Fact #2 - Because the market is SO saturated, there
is SO much competition it is virtually a pain to peer
in. Plus, newbies don't have a chance to compete with
the guys that REALLY know Internet marketing. It makes
Fact #3 - With no straight forward "down on the
table money" you are not going to get quick quality
traffic, no matter what they say.
This is the MAIN reason why most Internet Marketing
newbies get discouraged, and just refuse to continue
fighting their way through.
It is SO important to make the right start and to keep
in mind that you CAN succeed!
Look. I will never get tired of repeating this over
and over. Do not just try promoting marketing
products. Find your niche, and explore other markets.
There is so much money to be made with it! I personaly
try a new niche evrey month or two. Once I have one set
up and running I look for another. If one is not
working as well as I want it to, I drop it and move on.
The ones that seem to really interest people I will
stick with and make work.
(It takes real commitment and perserverince)
Pets, umbrellas, golf, kitchen, gardening, horror
movies, piano lessons, wine, cosmetics...the
possibilities are virtually endless. If you do it the
right way, you WILL make a consistent stream of
incoming money. This is the REAL Internet Marketing.
Refrain from the advice of fake gurus that have never
ever made a buck applying their auto proclaimed "hot
I don't make all my income with my marketing
products and services. I'm making
decent money form it but, I also started out, and
still do niche marketing. In fact I am starting a
brand new website for Health and Beauty For Men and Women.
It will sell real, heath products just like your local
health store. No scams or quick fixes. You know what
I'm talking about. We've all seen those ads for pills
or a powder for example that claim to help you loose weight and look like a super model in ten days?Yeah, Right!
You could have a Spanish recipe website , a guitar website, a women's product website, a general topic book website, a general discussion forum website...Like I said, I am always planning to explore new markets.
With these kinds of sites , I make money promoting other
people's stuff (affiliate marketing).
That is, I sell their products and I get a commission.
I just need to build a website, provide good content
and get the traffic by applying different techniques
(I describe exactly what I do in the Marketing Master
Course) When you do this correctly, you have a real
Money Machine that can work on autopilot.
There is no secrets here?The way I made it
in this business was by researching, studying,
contacting people, asking questions... testing, testing and testing somemore.
You can look at it this way?I see this as if I were playing an exciting game. Not something to drive me crazy or worry about or walk away from.
Do you want it to be an exciting winning game for you
It is really all up to you. You just need to try and avoid mistakes (we all make one every now and again, but learn from it!) and, take it one step at a time and don't get discouraged.
You can do it! I know because I did.
