I am going to talk about a topic today that many online affiliate marketers never discuss. I am going to tell you the top reasons why affiliate marketers fail and never start making money online while getting their businesses started.
Why Do Affiliate Marketers Fail?
Before I explain why affiliate marketers fail, we must first cover a few reasons why they are successful!
So what are top earners online doing that most others are not?
1. Failing their way to the top!
You may have heard before that most successful people fail more than everybody else. And I am living proof of this. I failed over 4 years and spent well over $5,000 on marketing classes, courses, and education prior to making my first dollar.
If you want to succeed, you must get comfortable with failure, and allow it to keep you motivated!
2. Keep it Simple
Most marketing funnels are very basic: Drive traffic to a lead capture page and follow up. Offer solutions to the problems that people are having while building a relationship. Once your audience trusts you, they will buy.
3. Understand that Marketing trial and error.
Marketing is a process of trial and error. You need to test things, see what works, and invest in the successful campaigns. You will lose money in some errors during a discovery phase, but you then recoup those lost funds in the successful campaigns. Losing money is not always bad – just as long as you know why you are losing on your campaigns and you can adjust to make your campaigns profitable.
Most people start losing money in an advertising campaign and quit. This is the top reason most people never get past the failure point with their businesses.
Why Affiliate Marketers Fail
1. They do not have a coach or mentor.
If you look at literally every successful online marketer – they all have coaches. Do you? If not, I’d recommend getting involved with some program that has masterminds, 1-on-1 coaching, and mentorships. Yes, it may cost money – but it is worth it! If not, you can always stick to what you’re currently doing and see if your results change (Did you ever hear of the “definition of insanity?” Doing the same thing and expecting different results!)
2. They shy away from paid traffic
There are lots of eBooks, videos, and education programs telling you about the number of ways to get free traffic with blogging, viral eBooks, videos, etc. However, the #1 fastest method to start making money and growing your business is paid traffic. Period!
3. They jump from different training programs without making them work
The online marketing world is intimidating as each marketer is trying to get your dollars. After you do your diligent research and find a program that you think is reputable, spend literally 6 months perfecting and learning everything you can about the program until it works.
As I mentioned earlier, this program should also give you access to a mentor. As part of my business, I’m spending 5 hours per week with my own coach, in addition to multiple hours helping beginners. So I am on both sides of this coach-trainee relationship.
If you have a coach, plus you stick to one training program, you should start to see results.
However, as I mentioned, most people never get this far which leads to failure.
