Here's Why Most Affiliate Marketers fail...

13 replies
You use keyword tool searching for your own market

then choose a product that you think is the best product for that market

build your list after that

Still difficult to increase the number of sales...

Of course! You will need to prepare more than that

build a comunity, social media, facebook group, fanpage, youtube channel

Prospects NEED TO SEE ENOUGH TO MAKE the Decision.

When you build the comunity, you build and gain more trust.

And you know what, all kind of business could run base on trust...

Foget about the first few buck, focus on building a comunity instead!!!

When i understant this, my sales increase more than ever before.

Hope this help!

    Well said Linh.

    Folks pick products to promote but I ask: to whom?

    Who buys something from someone offering nothing but a product? Where's the free info to prove you know what you're talking about? If someone buys my eBook and I make a sale and affiliate cut through Amazon - for most of 'em - said buyer knows I know blogging. Thousands of posts and videos point to my knowledge.

    Give away freemium. Sell premium. Add community-building to amplify your reach. I make new friends daily and bond with old friends at least weekly too, if not daily.

      I agree with you Ryan. Build up a community. Build up an audience of people who know you, like you and trust you. Create new content daily. Repurpose your content. Have thousands of pieces of content all over the internet that points to you and your expertise.

  • This makes total sense Mabu.
    It's no different in the offline world - get known, gain trust, share useful information, and eventually people will start spending money with you.
    Good work.

      Exactly!

      There is no different bettween online and offline
      If there is, guess that it's not much.

      Just put ourself into our prospect's shoes
      We can see a lot of interesting things that we, ourself could not see it

      Awesome!

        Think like your prospect. Know their fears, doubts and worries. Know their problems so you can solve them.

        Add just to add in, promoting an online business offline is the fastest, easiest and best way I can think of to do it. It's inexpensive and almost a competition free zone.

    This makes sense, but there are many other reasons why affiliate marketers fail - IMO the number one reason is they give up too early

    Along with continuous learning and applying what you learnt, hard work and persistence is the key.

    Most affiliates 'fail' because they find another shiny object before they have even tried to succeed with a current opportunity.


    I agree with what you say, you need to build your own tribe, focus on providing value to that tribe and the rest will follow. Give as much as you can for free, then when you do have something to 'recommend' that you actually use and love, they will follow you and buy.


    Affiliate marketing doesn't need to be any more complex than that.


    So do you focus on providing value or keep chasing the next easy solution? At some stage you have to get off that roundabout before you're stuck on it forever!

    If the marketers start looking for fast results and thinking for easy earning they will get disppointed and give up

  • When you offer unique bonuses to drive your affiliate sale, then you are more likely to make sales.

    Affiliate marketers tend to miss the operative word in affiliate "Marketing". Do the affiliate marketers have the necessary skills to market other product vendors products, without doing a course on a affiliate marketing first? In most cases, the answer is no.

    Proper marketing means getting your name out there enough times, in order for your prospects, to know, like and trust you. If you are offering an affiliate offer without, adding additional products and services of your own to encourage your prospects to buy from YOU and only you, no matter how many times they are seeing that same product being offered by some other affiliate at a lower price.

    Once you show your prospect that you are the authority in your niche, then they will buy almost every product you have to offer them.

    Give up too early.

    Yes, the winter is mabe too long, they can not take it

    Before we get into this game, we must clear about it.

    No matter it's hard, it's easy doesn't matter. I'm doing this!
