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.

Why?

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 sense, right?

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 secret techniques".

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 too?

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.
