Affiliate Marketing Tips
Someone asked me, “What is the best affiliate marketing tips you can give to someone who wants to start an affiliate marketing business?” (His name is Tony, and I will try to answer some of the common questions that beginners will often want to know when they first started.)
“What is the best tip you can give me?” asked Tony. “I want to make money with affiliate marketing.”
“Do you really want to start a business or you are just thinking about it?” asked MisterWailor.
“Yes, I really want to.”
“To be successful in business, you have to be in business.” answered MisterWailor.
“What does that means? I don’t quite understand.”
“Most people just think and never take any action. Do you think they will be successful?”
Tony thought for a few seconds. “Oh! I see. If one wants to be successful, he has to take action. So if I want to be successful, I have to do it.”
“Exactly. When you start doing business, you will learn many things that you need to learn. You might not be successful on the first try, but when you keep learning and one day you will succeed as long as you don’t quit. There are many successful business people who failed many times before they reach their goal.”
Action is the foundational key to all success. – Pablo Picasso
“How can I build a successful website?” asked Tony.
“To build a successful website, you have to have passion in what you are doing or what you are promoting. The visitors to you website will feel your passion and your enthusiasm. If you don’t believe in yourself and you will never be able to convince anyone.”
“Do I need to be an expert in what I am promoting?”
“You don’t have to be an expert, but loving what you are doing is necessary. When you love what you do and you will keep learning, and as a result you could become an expert.”
“How much money could I make?”
“I couldn’t really tell you. It depends on what niche you are doing. Some niches are more popular than others and there are more people interested in it, e.g. video games, health and fitness, and self-improvement, etc. You can make millions or you make nothing at all.”
“When you first start. Focus on building your website and make it as best you can, so you can build a good foundation.”
“When will I start to make money?”
“There is no answer to this question either. It could be a week or it could be never. As I said earlier, focus on your work and not the money. When you help your visitors and they will help you by buying your product or what you are promoting.”
“I could not keep going forever if I cannot make any money.” answer Tony.
“I would say at least do it for a year if you are a fast learner.” Said MisterWalor. “Taking a university course doesn’t promise you a job when you graduate.”
“How many websites should I build?”
“If you are successful, one website should be enough. You can have two if you have more time to spare. Success will come earlier when you focus your effort on one website. Besides posting on your website, you need to spend time on promoting your website.”
“Where is the best place to learn affiliate marketing?”
