1. Affiliate Marketing Is Not Easy
Some people do make easy online but for most people like you and me it is hard work. You have to work hard and your perseverance will pay eventually.
2. Don’t Promote Too Many Products
Don’t get swamped with too many ideas and too much work. Instead, choose a couple of good affiliate programs offering quality products that pay and sell well. Focus your time and energy on promoting those products. Try hard to make your first sale then rinse and repeat to make your second, third, fourth, fifth and so on.
3. Take Your Time To Learn
In order to be a good affiliate marketer you need to master some essential skills. Focus on one skill at a time (like writing and SEO) and try to get the hang of it before moving on to the next one. For example if you can not write a good sales page or promotional email try to learn as much as possible about it and practice.
4. Dont Use The Same Promotional Materials
If you don’t customize your marketing materials you will be competing with hundreds if not thousand other affiliates who are also using the same material. Whatever products you’re promoting always customize and fine tune your marketing materials so that you will be able to state the exact benefits of the product to your targeted audience.
