Why Is Affiliate Marketing So Hard? 5 Ways To Fail
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Affiliate Marketing is a long term venture for some folks. Businesses take time to build just like a brick and mortar start up does. You cannot expect to open a shop in your local town and have everyone come flocking in straight away. In all reality an online business is exactly the same. In saying that getting yourself in the right mindset can help you to grow your business much quicker than most.

First of all take a look at why you wanted to become an affiliate marketer in the first place. There are common reasons that lead people into desperate or false pretences about earning an income online. For example, some folks want to start a business online because:

Why Is Affiliate Marketing So Hard? The 5 Disasters That Plague Your Success Online

1. They got fired from their last job

2. They have one or two incomes, yet there is no money left to buy clothes or better quality food items

3. They didn't save enough for their retirement, now age is catching up and physical work isn't an option.

4. They just feel terrible because they cannot contribute to the household expenses. This happens to many women.

5. Their full time job is horrible but they can't afford to quit because the money is too good.

If you have entered affiliate marketing from any one of these situations in life, you are going to feel overwhelmed and considerably desperate. Your focus will be on quickly making sales instead of building quality. Inevitably when quality is executed correctly this action will return more sales than you ever thought possible.

The other thing is affiliate programs take at least 30-60 days before your payment is tangible. Freelancing may be an option however you will find that most high paying jobs request the money remains in escrow until the both parties are satisfied. Selling your own products will take time as well as your traffic sources will be low to begin with.

A desperate attitude is going to be your biggest downfall to affiliate success online. You are best served getting a job offline and attending web based affiliate classes at home. Just until you have a little more funding and less desperation on your side. Affiliate marketing is very rewarding and friendly on your bank account but it takes time. Classes do help because you spend less time wasting time, while you learn you also earn. Interacting with like minded people will also help you to change your attitude and become more business driven than you currently are.

Just work out what angle you are approaching this venture from and you may answer your own question as to why is affiliate marketing so hard?
