Affiliate marketing guides The question ‘Is Affiliate Marketing Difficult?‘ ge ts banded about quite a bit…ever since the Internet was born in fact. Let me tell you the truth…Is Affiliate Marketing Difficult?…Yes! I won’t butter up an industry that has more sharks in it than the Pacific Ocean, it is truly very dangerous out there and don’t let anyone tell you any different. Thousands of good, honest people have tried…and failed. And there are thousands of other good folk lining up to take their place ready to be eaten alive. is affiliate marketing difficultThe problem starts when someone is sick of going to work everyday and suddenly thinks they can make the same amount of money online…and lots more. Well, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it takes a lot more than just thinking! I started with the same fool idea 26 months ago and left a secure job to ‘make it online’. The first 10 months I earned $160. that’s $16 a month, just around $4 a week or just over 50 cents a day…whichever way you look at it, it’s bad! It took me a full 18 months to earn $1500 a month…still very low and only now, after 26 months, can I say I earn as much as I did in my day job. Don’t let anyone tell you affiliate marketing is easy…they lie. I kept going because of 2 things. The first being pride. I made this big decision to quit work and drag my wife and son along with me.

decision? I could have easily got my job back, I was good at my job, but the reason I didn’t go back was the second reason why I continued online. Determination. I kept telling myself ‘it will work’, ‘I will make money‘, ‘I will succeed’. The amount of times I nearly quit is scary! I’m so glad I continued and I’m still learning everyday, but at least I can say I made it work. My advice, if your question ‘Is Affiliate Marketing Difficult?‘ My answer is Yes. Don’t do what I did and quit your job. I still have a steely determination to continue and a whole bunch of pride that I don’t want dented. If you’re not 100% sure about making money online, then don’t even try. You may think you have what it takes, but listen to your inner voice, your gut feeling. If that feeling is just a little uncomfortable, don’t do it. Do plenty of research, and I mean PLENTY! And do it long before thinking about quitting your job. I’m lucky enough to have a great wife who paid the bills, although it was really hard getting by, and after saying all that doom and gloom, if I had quit in the early days, I would be always wondering, what if? It all depends on how strong you are, how much you want it and have a little back-up along the way. It’s not easy and every day you could lose the lot. II. Affiliate marketingstrategies Affiliate marketing is a low-cost way for merchants to build awareness and showcase their products and services. The model is simple; it works as a commission-based referral system. A partner or affiliate markets a merchant's products for a "piece of the pie." Affiliate marketing experts often make an income that can tally over five figures per month, however only 1 to 5% of thousands of marketers achieve this level.

When an affiliate reaches this elite level they are often referred to as a "super" affiliate. How does one become a super affiliate? Can anyone do it? Super affiliates have common tactics that they embrace and put into place. Anyone can become a super affiliate, but it will not come without blood, sweat, and a hefty time commitment. The typical super affiliate possesses the following traits:  Persistence  Patience  Thirst for Knowledge These three traits combined with the following strategy gives you the formula for the makings of a "super" affiliate. 1. Find a Unique Niche The mistake that many affiliate marketing hopefuls have in common is that they try to offer everything under the sun rather than focusing on a specific niche market. Do not scatter your efforts, focus on your niche, promote it, and sell it well. 2. Search Engine Marketing Once you've built your affiliate storehouse you will need to promote it. Many affiliates use pay-per-click engines. I suggest that you learn how to achieve organic search results or hire a search engine marketing company. This will save you from spending all your profits on pay-per-click engines. Only use pay-per-click engines if you know what you are doing, otherwise all your profits may end in the hands of Google Adwords or Overture. 3. Know Your Product, Know Your Audience Create a resource. By taking the time to learn about the products and/or services that you are offering you can create information that builds your credibility. That credibility builds trust. If your viewers do not have trust in you more than likely they will not purchase from your storehouse.

psychological process that an online buyer goes through I suggest that you read my article on the Five Levels of Internet Marketing and the Sales Process. This will help you in creating a web site that converts well, which in return will increase your cash flow. 4. Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Basket Promote products from different merchants. This way if you have a problem with receiving payment from a merchant, or their products do not convert well the effects on your business will be minimal. Watch out for exclusivity agreements; remember this is your business. Protect yourself and diversify so that you do not feel the famine effect if something goes wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with promoting niche products from different merchants. 5. Seek Knowledge and Embrace Change If you are familiar with Internet marketing at all you know that what worked three months ago may not work today. Stay on top of the trends. Seek knowledge, start by learning something new about affiliate marketing daily. For example remember those marketing tools called "banner" that use to drive sales at an astronomical rate a few years ago? Well those banners developed a term called "banner blindness." That means most online viewers will not click on banners even if they do pertain to what they are looking for. To be a "super" affiliate you must always spend time reading, learning, and embracing the changes in Internet marketing. 6. Don't Give Up It's hard to do, and most of the time those dabbling in affiliate marketing give up way too soon. Monitor your statistics, watch to see what is working and what is not. Make changes when necessary. Do one thing daily to promote your storehouse and be patient. Before you know it you will start getting payments. Remember that it will not happen overnight. Encompass and develop the persistence, patience, and knowledge. Then follow the tactics I've mentioned above and you are on your way to becoming a "super" affiliate.
