Here are 9 common mistakes made by affiliate marketers. Don’t let these happen to you, all of these can stall your progress and success and waste precious time that can be spent building an online empire!
- Expecting to get rich overnight.
- Feeling discouraged when friends or family doubt the “make money online business”. This is typical, block them out, and get support from like-minded people at the forums.
- Buying every latest and greatest product, and letting them collect dust on the computer because you’re busy buying another product.
- Not taking action. There is a time to learn and a time to implement what is learned, many get stuck in learning and never take action. Without action there is no business and no success.
- Not learning the proper methods and falling for hype.
- Getting overwhelmed by doing too much. It’s best to focus on one thing at a time. Build one site, optimize it and when it starts to make money build another. Typically when too many things are done at once, nothing is a success.
- Not learning how to write sales copy. Creating and writing effective sales copy is essential in getting the optimal conversions for affiliate offers. If you don’t know how, learn or outsource to a qualified professional.
- Not taking advantage of mistakes and failures. Ask any successful affiliate and they will tell you that they would not be where they are without mistakes and failures. See them as the stepping stones to success that they are, and take advantage of the learning lessons they bring and not as reasons to quit.
- GIVING UP!! Many newbies to this business have this idea that they will become rich overnight and they dream of the dot com millionaire status a month after starting their business.
In reality it can take weeks, or months to get your first sale, the key is to never give up and keep pushing and striving until you reach your goals. This business takes perseverance, dedication and commitment in order to reach that glorious freedom from punching the bosses’ time clock.
