Many marketers want to make you believe that affiliate marketing is the best business model for you to choose if you want to earn a full time income from your home. But it’s not. In fact, if you are one of the thousands of marketers around the world, you would know that this business is not suitable for you if you want to build a long term business.
In this article, I am going to share with you the biggest mistake that most newbies make when they are just starting out their affiliate marketing business.
It is not because they do not know anything about the business or they are not promoting the right products. It is because they are trying to promote too many products at the same time. Don’t be the one who is Statistics! It is not because it is hard, but it is not simple too.
Are you ready for a Widgets Marketing adventure?
While working as an affiliate, I have seen many marketers promoting loads of products at the same time, I was once guilty of it too. But let me be honest, I can’t really blame this on luck, it just was timing that chose this product and that product to promote.
It just so happened that this product that I was promoting about web membership sites was actually a web based survey, it cost $97 to join and guess what the feedback was; I needed to make some money really fast to test the concept.
This is what most affiliates do; they promote a product, and then set up a ClickBank account to get paid. While there is nothing wrong with this, but what about investing your time promoting a product for a few weeks to get paid after you have followed the affiliate link to the merchant site? What if it costs you $200 in marketing to make you only $19?
There is a problem with this and that is; your monthly income will not be as much as you may have hoped. Sure you have not lost your shirt yet, but what about the thousands of dollars that you have earned so far? Well, not going to happen here.
I would like to show you how to avoid making this affiliate marketing mistake if you are so inclined.
Here is what you should do, go to ClickBank and set up a small simple account. They will provide you with the product, which should be of interest to you. Get your affiliate link from ClickBank and then create a product promotional campaign.
