Never get fooled by numbers
This is the worst practice which most of the affiliate marketers do, by showing the false impression of statistics online, never go on the online statistics as it could be false, they do it to show that they are getting clicks on daily basis just to increase their money by showing the false statement. But, at the end what works is the paycheck no need to come in the talks of affiliate manager, let money do the talking use your brain and show the bank number to prove yourself, it’s high time show the money rather than showing fake clicks to prove yourself.
Be confident and believe in yourself, never fall into the trap of such scammers.
Words are lie, but action always speak the truth
Have you have ever noticed the sites have reviews, more positive the review is, more negative will be the viewers approach. But, have you ever seen that the site which is running in a full-fledged way.
Suppose some other company is running your banner, now go and look the review sites, you will find out that the site which is running your network banner is also on the top, what you learn from here is, this is the website which sponsors their own reviews by paying good amount of dollars for that so never trust another network words, that we are on the top list you can see the reviews, don’t let anybody fools you. Affiliate Marketing is all about playing safe with other affiliate networks and managers.
Affiliate Marketing is the big Playground, Fight tough or else go to sleep
These days in the affiliate marketing world you will see that there are a lot of newcomers who are entering in. Have you ever think why such spark occurs? How sudden desire arises in them? Here is the answer, in several blogs there are screenshots of random people who upload screenshots of their income like I earned $1000 in a month with affiliate marketing.
What I read these days is people who are at a good position in well-known companies also quit their job to start their new business and they think they will earn a huge amount in a month. Never think of this in your life, it’s better to play casino rather than playing this game with your life, before starting your game first learn and try to understand the rules of the game then improve yourself and come on the ground for the final game.
Play your Game hard, leave what others are doing
If you see and analyze that there is something new coming up in the market but everybody else is also taking about it then you are too late for the new innovative idea which you thought this morning. Wait for the new sunrise or do it yourself apart from affiliate marketing there are other things in internet marketing which are successful like, Lead generation, Pay Per Click, CPA, Content Locking and more. If you are playing to your strength then you are more successful rather than going in a flow what other people does, like if a guy posting his picture with a Lamborghini and behaving as if it’s his car, no nothing like that, how could you believe in one go that it’s his car.
Focus on what you love, like if you are good at writing or website designing do that and show your skills to the world or if you are good at marketing like in health insurance marketing you can generate leads as an affiliate and may earn a good amount of commission in that by playing smart with full efforts.
Never spend over on Affiliate Marketing
Never spend too much on Affiliate Marketing, you don’t need a big amount to start affiliate marketing, start with a low amount and you may earn the highest in the future. If you invest a huge amount of money without experience then what are you expecting in return, you will be discouraged to know the results. No matter how good you are at work but without any knowledge that in the future what works and what not, go slow and wait for the right time to come. Sooner or later when you will be perfect in your work, you will naturally start earning more than previously.
So, folks if you are new to affiliate marketing, please read all the points carefully and read other blog articles of renowned networks, which will make your work simple and fast in earning a commission. Better to do research before landing up in affiliate marketing.
