What it takes to become an affiliate marketer

  1. 1. What It Takes To Become An Affiliate Marketer Posted on April 14, 2014 by admin There are some myths in affiliate marketing, which attract a lot of people believing they are true. First is they think managing an online business is easy and second, they think that one can make a fortune through online marketing in an instant and I am here to tell you those just are not true. Probably not even 10% of those who are into affiliate marketing became rich overnight. There may be some who fortunately achieved overwhelming success in just a short span of time after setting up an affiliate program, but not the majority of them can say they only had luck. Anyone who is successful in this kind of business would say they worked hard to get to where they are right now. Success in affiliate marketing takes a lot of time and a lot of hard work, but it’s worth it. Not only is all of the above the honest truth, it’s also based on my own experience. Knowing that thinking to become rich is a myth, unless you were that guy who invented the credit card code!!! If you are planning to start an affiliate program, the two things you MUST have, is your own website, not just an ordinary website but a professional looking one, and a mentor. Somebody that you can trust that has been successful in this business the honest way with nothing but hard work and integrity. Affiliate marketing is a revenue sharing partnership between a web affiliate entrepreneur and one or more affiliates. The affiliate is paid a commission for referring clicks, leads or most often sales to the affiliate retailer. An affiliate’s advantage is that he can make money in a business where he doesn’t have the upfront costs of creating his own product, and he doesn’t have to worry about e-commerce, administrating and customer support. That is souly the affiliate retailer’s responsibility. Now, for sure you want to be an affiliate marketer with all the benefits an affiliate can get But, do you have what it takes to be an affiliate marketer? Before you begin your adventure into affiliate marketing, you need to decide first: ➢ Which area of business interests you? ➢ What niche do you want to be in? ➢ What products do you know the most? ➢ What is your expertise? ➢ What is your passion, a passion of which you like to make money at? ➢ Which products you could do the best job of selling? ➢ Which problems can you solve to help your audience? Once you discover your specialty, the game of Perseverance,Patience and Determination (PPD) comes next. These are the qualities you should possess to become a good affiliate marketeer. My next three or first three are Patience, Patience, and more Patience. I say this because they are the hardest qualities for me to deal with. They are workable, if I can do it, so can you. Too many online business STARTERS lose out because they become impatient. You also have to know what your business capabilities are, and you must have an understanding of abilities of things in which you are good at. Your capabilities and abilities related to your chosen niche, and the most important thing is, that you have to have a strong desire to succeed in affiliate marketing. Keep in mind that there are more than 3.000.000.000 people who on a daily basis are searching the web, yes every day ! ( this number is growing by the day) To be an affiliate marketer is not an easy task. You have to learn the techniques of affiliate marketing, Find somebody that has been successful in affiliate marketing for a period of years and LISTEN,
  2. 2. LISTEN, LISTEN. You shouldn’t be looking at every affiliate marketing product out there, it’s all about you looking for the opportunity they give you. If you want to look at the different programs, go to this site : http://amihomebiz.com you will be guided in right direction. The programs I've talked about in this site, provide you with the necessary tools to be taught the market and business skills you need to know. For an affiliate marketer, you should know how to put your site into this market and apply your social media effectively, it will enable you to get thousands of visitors coming to your site which transforms into more sales and the highly appreciated traffic. This only means that the faster you set up a website and your social accounts, the bigger your chances of making money online will grow. You need to take ACTION NOW! My own personal saying is this “ Think BIG, Dream BIG, Act small. What ACTION am I going to take today”? You should avoid the mistakes, a lot of affiliates make everyday, they are only building a short-term business where they just make a small sale, or in a lot of cases, $0 at all!! Make sure you understand that you should be building a long-term affiliate business and not just something that makes you a few dollars on one sale. So keep motivated and find your passion to build something long term. Your passion and expert skills, will build an audience as you become an authority. This will in turn make you become recognized as an expert in your field and your intention of making money, will become a reality. There are some people that think that just by having affiliate links on their website it will bring them good profits or in most cases, commissions. This can have some truth to it, but then most successful affiliates still believe that making use of strong marketing campaigns for their affiliate programs is still very important, and you want to build a residual income that will last a lifetime.You know what it takes now, so go LONG TERM and build this for LIFE!!! Affiliate marketers become much more successful when they treat their customers and online visitors as if they where their best friends. It is very important for an affiliate marketer to have a good business relationship with customers and visitors. Responding on a scheduled time will bring trust to your site's visitors, mostly done on the social platforms. Facebook, Twitter and LinkIn etc...interacting is a key to building an audience. You should also be creative in your writings on subjects concerning your niche. Don’t worry about your writing skills! I assure you that practicing will help. The reason why I mention this is because of the fact that the real key of being successful with affiliate marketing is to develop a good content based website. So, are you a good writer? The fact still remains that you have to provide your audience with good, quality content and keep them coming back to your site. There are several inexpensive products out here to help you do just that.
