The Number One Reason Affiliates Fail, Know How To Avoid It
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I started knowing about affiliate programs for 4 or 5 years now, I was very excited to start doing it thinking it was a piece of cake and that I was going to achieve millions when I post my ad as if the world was waiting for me to start. I had the biggest slap in the face when I woke up next day, opened my laptop to see how much profit did I gain and it was ZERO. Actually it remained the same zero for very long time afterwards.

I noticed that there is something wrong, it has to be cause there are millions of dollars out there being paid to affiliates. So, why the heck I am not one of them?

I started revising the way I promote my affiliate products and the answer hit me. I am acting as a SALESMAN that cares only about money and here it is.

The number one reason why affiliates fail is caring about money and sales while they should worry more about people who will get them money and sales. If you want to succeed as an affiliate, yes you should follow all techniques, but you also should start dealing with people as family. Promote products that you really like and be honest about it. If the product has pitfalls that you know about, mention them and be sure that people will respect that and might buy your product if it was the best for them.

People are not fool and they can tell whether your doing it for sales or to help them and gaining profit as well, so act as if you were buying the product for you and ask yourself one question: are you going to buy it for yourself or not?

So, honesty is very important element in your success as an affiliate marketer. Also, the way you write articles and reviews is very important. Don't use very complicated vocabulary in your speech; on the contrary you should address people as if you were talking to friends. Write in a respected, error, and grammar free way, but also keep it funny and social.

we all aim at making money at the end of the day and the best way to achieve it is by thinking and acting as we really care for our customers and want the best for the and will eventually pay off and make you say a final goodbye to failure.
