    Affiliate Marketing Myths. Affiliate Marketing Myths. Presentation Transcript

    • Affiliate Marketing Myths .
      • Affiliate marketing myths are ideas about affiliate marketing that have gotten going over time but which have little basis in fact.
      • If you’re undertaking an affiliate marketing campaign or business, it helps to know about these myths so that you can get a better picture of the reality of the situation and of your prospects of affiliate marketing success. The following are some common myths and misconceptions about affiliate marketing that have grown over the years that this type of internet marketing activity has been popular.
    • Affiliate Marketing is Easy or a “No Brainer”
      • This statement may mean different things to different people, but in a general way people tend to believe or want to believe affiliate marketing is easier than it is. They may tend to think it is a business that “runs itself” or that requires little effort. This is untrue. Affiliate marketing takes work, especially because the competition is fiercer than it was in the early days of the practice. It takes careful work and thought to generate traffic and to create a reliable, buying minded customer base. While sales do happen spontaneously, the business does not run itself and needs the attention and maintenance of the affiliate marketer to remain profitable.
    • You Only Need a Good Affiliate Program
      • Affiliate programs do differ somewhat as to quality, but a good affiliate program alone won’t make you a successful affiliate marketer. It requires your thought and effort as well. Just as in the above myth, this is an error based on the temptation to minimize individual effort and responsibility. Good affiliate programs simply make the process of marketing products and getting paid easier and more hassle free. But they will not do the work for you.
    • You’ll Immediately Recognize Success or Failure
      • Traffic generation of a significant level typically takes months to build up. The idea that you can assess the profitability of an affiliate marketing campaign soon after starting it is not true. You may either see initial sales that later drop off, or see little conversion and sales initially that subsequently gradually increase, becoming quite profitable. Either way it takes time, usually something on the order of six months or more, to get a reliable picture of how a certain campaign is doing.
    • The More Programs the Better
      • Some people believe that having many affiliate products or programs, perhaps all concentrated on a single landing page, is better than having only one. They reason that more products increase the chances of a customer choosing one. This is by no means necessarily the case. A number of products all on one page may confuse the viewer or make the site seem too pushy or profit driven.
      • It is often better to concentrate on a single product and market it well than to overwhelm potential customers with products. Knowing about these and other internet marketing myths will help you avoid certain common thought and attitude pitfalls when undertaking a campaign. A realistic and optimistic view is the best one to have in this business and will lead to successful planning and execution of your affiliate marketing goals.
