Are you still broke while spending lots of time promoting your affiliate products? Why do most people achieve great success with their affiliate promotion, while you keep yourself broke with no hope? Perhaps, it’s because you are doing these dangerous mistakes. Here are 5 dangerous mistakes that keep affiliate marketers broke:
1. Promoting affiliate products blatantly
If you want to keep having zero sales, here’s one thing that you can do: promote your affiliate product blatantly. This is a guaranteed way to keep you broke. Why? That’s because it’s not the way good marketing works. People don’t want to be forced to do anything. They want to do anything based on their will. And by promoting your affiliate product blatantly, you are forcing them to buy, which will result in no sales.
Can you promote an affiliate product without appearing needy? Unfortunately, most affiliate marketers are promoting their affiliate products with neediness. It means that they’re promoting their product as if by saying “hey, I really need you to buy this product because I need the money asap”. They put banners everywhere, reminding their audience to buy their affiliate product immediately. This too, will lead to no sales because you’re not really giving your audience the reason to buy.
3. Not knowing the fundamentals of marketing
The fundamentals of marketing is persuasion. And this is what you actually do to win sales. You persuade your audience to buy your affiliate products. But, when I say persuasion, it doesn’t mean manipulation. Persuasion is like when you tell to your friend about your new shoes and where to buy it. Or it is like when doctor is giving his patients what medication to take. That’s persuasion, and that’s marketing. If you don’t know how to persuade, you can’t be successful in affiliate marketing.
4. Not knowing what they’re doing
Most people will recommend you to build a website in order to promote affiliate products more effectively. But, most affiliate marketers are just following that advice without knowing about what to do next. They are walking in darkness. You need a step-by-step practical action plan in order to succeed in affiliate marketing.
5. Not leveraging their little success
Most newbie affiliate marketers will think that their little success is only a coincidence. But, is it true? No, there are no coincidences in this world. If you see certain method brings you little success, it’s time to leverage. If certain blogs can bring you consistent $10 per month, it is clearly not just a coincidence. Create another similar blog with a similar structure, and you’ll also get the same result. Then, create 10 more, so that you can get 10 times your initial income. The key is leverage and in this way you’ll keep climbing the ladder of success in your affiliate business. You’ll discover new ways to make more money.
If you do those mistakes, you’ll be broke for a long time. In fact, your affiliate marketing business will seem to give you no result for your effort. So, you better avoid those dangerous mistakes if you want to succeed with your affiliate marketing business.
