Research shows that 95% of those that try to make money online fail. That really is such a frightening statistic & I honestly & sincerely believe it doesn’t have to be that way.
Affiliate marketing has evolved massively over the last 5 years so the information, coaching & systems available mean it is now simpler & easier to put all the pieces of the jigsaw together to achieve your online goals.
I have put together the 4 main reasons I believe people fail & quit, with solutions to give them the belief & confidence it’s possible to succeed.
Reason #1) Not Giving It Enough Time – Unless you have a huge amount of money to invest in paid advertising (which get’s fast results) you must be willing to give it at least 1 year of consistent action, learning & effort. “Be here a year from now” is a well known philosophy that is very true because it takes time to learn new skills & apply what you have learned.
You will be amazed that with the right mentoring & following a step by step proven system how much success you will have achieved a year from now.
Reason #2) Not Enough Traffic – I could share with you 100’s of product programmes that convert daily into sales. You could possibly be one of those people in one of those programmes. Once you get enough targeted traffic to your product/business or service you will get sales & earn commissions, as long as it’s one of value.
How much traffic do you need? That is totally relative to how much you want to earn & how successful you wish to be. Learn both free & paid traffic methods, take consistent daily action & the sales will come.
Reason #3) Not Paying For Targeted Traffic – You can make money online with free traffic. By taking this route which some have no option to when they first start due to being on a low budget, (it was how I began my affiliate marketing journey) it is achievable. Though the hard hitting message is that at some stage you have to invest or reinvest some of your profits into paid traffic sources to make a decent & consistent income.
As a newbie there are some great new “Revenue Share Advertising Services” that pay you for advertising with them. One such platform which I personally use is Traffic Monsoon. It is totally newbie friendly & will give you the confidence that paid traffic works & earn you an income so you can scale up your traffic for faster success.
Reason #4) Not Building A List – List building can seem like a really frightening & daunting thought for those new to affiliate marketing. Fortunately there are mentors/coaches who now provide a complete “Done For You” autoresponder sequence. They have all the work professionally done (squeeze pages,subject titles, email copy, upsells, downsells, funnel systems,product promotion & sales with your affiliate links etc) so your role is to learn how to drive traffic to that particular affiliate offer. Gosh, they even mentor you step by step on how to do that too!
Take on board all of the above & you can be one of the affiliate marketing success stories that you envision & set your goals to be. Keep learning, keep doing & keep going & you will become a success!
