Are your affiliate article marketing efforts failing to deliver the results you expected? You're not alone, in fact thousands of people just like you are struggling online today because you've been fed a bunch of lies by "gurus" who are only interested in making a quick profit. Like you, i struggled early on trying to follow their "paint by numbers" courses and trying to create an online income the easy way. Thankfully, I eventually learned the secrets behind affiliate article marketing success, and rapidly saw an increase in traffic, conversions and sales. And I'm happy to share the secrets that I've personally learned in this lucrative area with you.

What The "Gurus" Aren't Telling You About Affiliate Article Marketing Success

When I first came online, frankly writing for the purposes of affiliate article marketing scared me. I had extremely unpleasant flashbacks to my school days of writing long essays and getting bad marks for it, and I doubted that I had anything worthwhile to say. Then I came across "gurus" who told me that basically I didn't have to do any writing myself at all. I could "spin" PLR articles using the sophisticated article writing software they were selling for $97 and simply post it up to various article directories all around the internet for easy traffic and backlinks.

Guess what? This fell flat on its face, because only the low quality directories would accept my articles (all submitted using the bulk affiliate article marketing submitter they upsold me to) and generally I'd only get one or two referrals a day from my dozens of articles submitted. It was clear to me after doing this over and over again with no results was not the way to go. I would later learn that the strategy I was sold on was vastly outdated because of the way Google now penalizes duplicate content. Even if they didn't, the articles were of such horrible quality that no one who spoke English as a first language would even consider clicking through to my sites.

The Secrets Of Affiliate Article Marketing Success

I decided to scrap all of what I was doing and get back to the basics of what affiliate article marketing is all about. By being a part of a good online community centered around helping people like me learn the ropes, I soon realized where I was going wrong. Instead of seeing the formula of "traffic, conversions and sales", I began to understand that I was communicating with real people with real needs. Affiliate article marketing basically is communicating with people with a particular need, showing them that I know what I'm talking about and then leading them to the affiliate product I recommend to help meet that need. Once I began adopting that mindset with my efforts, I started seeing drastically better results.

Obviously there's more to it, but without this core mindset all the technical knowledge of SEO and good writing practice would mean nothing. Today, whether you're stuck in terms of the "mindset" aspect or the technical aspect, or if you just don't know what you're doing like how I was when I first started out, then I strongly recommend joining me in the Wealthy Affiliate University community. There's no shortage of people available to help you with affiliate article marketing, search engine optimization, even setting up your first website and article marketing campaign!
