Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

With so many people attempting to get started working online from home in the affiliate marketing industry, there's very few marketers that are taking there responsibilities to their customers seriously.

The thing with affiliate marketing is there are always new people wanting to get started and with that there lies in wait a lot of sharks putting out some bait to reel them in to their realms.

Folks that are looking to get rich off of peoples hopes and not steering them in the right direction.

"Done For You"

Is one of the most irresponsible tactics being used. It's the responsibility of mentors that are showing people how to become an affiliate marketer to actually teach this stuff. Not to merely fire a website up and pass it on to someone with no clue what to do with it.

The best way for people to learn anything is by DOING, and doing is an action word. Something that needs to be inspired more for people.

Then "automated" gets thrown into the mix. People want turnkey and whether it exists or not, it is selling. Software gets sold to folks everyday that goes against everything about building a sustainable business.

Again, it's not the fault of new marketers trying to get ahead. It's the responsibility of affiliate marketers already in the game that this flaw lies with.

In the end, it's best to not promote stuff that is already selling that you don't know anything about. Especially if you are in contact with people using email marketing.

It's all about building relationships, and you could work your butt off to get to phase 4 of that relationship. The best buddy stage...when you're list starts being responsive to your messages that you are contacting them with. When you recommend something and people try it out.

Because you've built trust. If you send them to some high and mighty stealth marketing promo, your passing on your recommendation to both the product and the person that launched that product. If they're using unethical practices, you're instantly associated with the same label.

Is that what you want for an aspiring business?

Certainly not. Your responsibility as an affiliate marketer, is to look after your own customers. They take advice from you and tehn you steer them wrong, you're gonna know about it.

Email marketing gets you unsubscribe rates faster than your kettle can boil while you're trying to rack in sales. Your credibility is what builds your business as an affiliate marketer. That takes time.

It's widely known that people need to be exposed to the idea of a product working for them around 7 times on average and that's what you try to do.

People are taking a lot of time to research things before they make a purchase. If they're not happy at the end of the sales funnel, they'll let others know their disappointments.

Obey the morals of affiliate marketing...point your customers to trusted and worthy resources and you'll be on track for a sustainable business.

Form the base inputs of affiliate marketing to expanding and growing a responsive list of subscribers is all parts of the training inside wealthy affiliate. What's more is you can now start out with the community training and build your way up to expanding.
