How to Become a Better Affiliate

First of all you need to understand that an Affiliate Program takes time to make it work. No one achieved "financial freedom" overnight. All those websites claiming to make you reach in just a couple of days (I have seen even shorter periods of time) are not telling you the truth. But that does not mean you can not make money from that program. You need to realize it can be done over time and a great deal of persistence.

It is a fact that 95% of the people who joined an affiliate program is not involved in the money making process after a year of signing up. Those are the "quitters". For the rest of us, some will make it and some won't but your chances of making it are much higher due to the time and work that you put in it, and the number of referrals you gained during this time. This is when you start seeing some pretty good results, at least compared to your first month check. You have to give it a try for at least a year to even consider working with another company or don't do anything anymore.

You need to work consistently everyday and do not fear rejection. I know people who are even afraid of sending email to their downline because they are afraid of sending them too much email and they may opt-out of the program and will loose that affiliate. Let me tell you this, if you have a downline with affiliates who are doing nothing, you get that, nothing. It does not make any difference if they quit or not, but by sending them recent news from the company, new software that you know, or even new advertising method, you get good qualified affiliates that will follow you over time.

"I have no money" How many times have you heard that? The truth is that they do not trust you or the company enough to put some money into it. Everyone has 20$-30$ a month. They are just afraid you are going to steal the money from them. Tell them the truth about the company and how, with persistence and hard work from their part they can be successful. Show them your numbers, tell them your advertising methods and the amount of money you invest in your business. Make them feel part of it, and if you can, write a step by step method to become successful with your Affiliate Program.

Advertising is a numbers game, we all know that, but good advertising is hard to find this days. That is why you need to have control of your advertising campaigns and see which ones are working for you and continue doing what you are doing. You do not need money to advertise. You can use a link at the bottom of every email that leaves your computer. Write articles. Exchange links. Add content to your website. We all know these basic principles, but we also know that it is very time consuming and painful hours in front of your computer. But that is why we call it work.

You need to see it as a hobby and spend a full hour a day working as hard as you can. Put your soul into it. And remember, you only loose the game when you quit.
