Attitude is key to succeeding before you can be a success at you need to know how to learn. If you cannot do that, then it is difficult to earn as you learn. You definitely need a good attitude to learn and to earn as you learn. No two ways about it. Think about attitudes! We see them every day with everyone we deal with and speak to either in person or on the phone.
You know that if you speak to an upbeat, positive person you come away from the experience feeling pretty great about yourself. This may come as a bit of a surprise, but it makes sense, attitude also directly affects the way stress handles YOU. Optimists cope way more effectively with stress. They achieve more when they take action and do it extremely effectively.

“And guess what? That in turn multiplies their results”.

If you are positive and you have positive thoughts, you are far more likely to achieve short and long-term success. It’s not hard to spot positive people, because they view situations differently than negative people do. So be positive and let’s get you going in the affiliate marketing world.

  9. 9. Step 3 –The Best Clickbank Product toPromoteTrying to decide on which Clickbank Product youshould promote as an affiliate marketer can bedifficult with so many options, so I will attempt tohelp narrow down the field for you.Ill go over some of the things that you need toknow to make money with clickbank and also goover some other tips for affiliate marketing andinternet marketing to help boost your income.With thousands of products to choose from, how doyou know which is the best Clickbank product topromote and that will perform the best for you?Here are some tips that I use to help me choose agood Clickbank product to become an affiliate for.1. Gravity: Gravity would have to be the first factorI look for when deciding on a product. Gravity tellsus roughly how many other people are making saleswith the product. The higher the number, the morepeople are selling it.So does a high gravity product mean you shouldautomatically choose it?... Sometimes ... Depends.
  10. 10. Seven Steps To Affiliate Marketing SuccessWhile I realize thats a little vague there are anumber of other factors that you will need toconsider before choosing your product.Most of the products I choose have a gravity of over40. I rarely promote new products because I justdont know if they are going to be winners or not.Be careful about choosing products with gravityover 100. This means you have a lot of competitionand itll be harder to stand out from the crowd.2. Commission: The next thing I look at is howmuch money I am going to make per sale. I likeanything over $20, but preferably closer to $30.This means that any money or time I spendpromoting the product is worth my time.Whether you choose ppc or other free methods ofpromotion, factoring in hours or work to just make$10 per sale is usually not cost effective unless youthink you can sell hundreds of that product.I would rather spend less time to make more money.By Colin Cousins
  11. 11. Step 4 – Writing Content/ArticlesPrivate Label Rights (PLR) content is very popularon the internet today.PLR content is written by a ghostwriter and sold toother people to use as they wish.
