Yes, most of the marketers will agree with me that building an online affiliate marketing business is/was a nightmare for some. They started, joined the best business promoted as suggested but at the end no earnings, no results … they lost their money and hope and still understanding what exactly is affiliate marketing and how to make money in it?
In simple words, affiliate marketing is selling someone else’s product and in return, earn a commission from each sale
Everybody wants to earn money online but building a business is not everyone’s cup of tea. There are tons of questions in the mind of upcoming/new affiliate marketer like..
- What does it take to build an online business?
- Is there any magic wand in the hand of successful marketers?
- How come they are earning loads of money and others are nothing?
Lots of questions in the mind of unsuccessful or I would say struggling marketer and that they are still looking for all the answers so that they too can build a business as others are doing… You can not build a business online if you are not…
- An action taker
- A learner, A researcher
- A creative thinker – who thinks out of the box
- Spending time to build a business
- Spending money on your business
- A good copywriter, article writer and an ad writer
- Good at getting traffic
- Treating your business as YOURS
- Passionate about your online business
- PPP (Patience, Persistence and Passionate) follower
- A good team player
You need to have all the above qualities in YOU if you want to build a business online. Few things are quite easy and don’t need any kind of training but few things need training before you apply
An Action Taker is a Winner
Taking an action is not a tough task but people find it difficult because there is some kind of fear in their mind…
fear of losing money, fear of failing, fear of embarrassment. If a person can get rid of their fear, they can go way too far and then the sky is the limit for them. People who are successful are not different but are successful only because they have overcome their fear and took the right step and the right time…
They didn’t care if they will lose or win .. they just had one goal and that was to earn money whatever the cost is … this is the passion one needs to have to create passive income online Find a business but before joining that, create a trust that you will be successful with the selected business model either it is affiliate marketing, dropshipping or whatever it is.
Even if you fail in the first attempt, don’t lose hope and continue working towards your goal.
Feel that you are a magnet to money and you will attract lots of money from this business
A Learner, A Researcher Always Grow
Become a learner. The more you learn, the more you grow. But don’t just learn, apply what you have learned and see if that was the right thing you learned. There is a lot of information available online and you might just get suffer from information overload. So try to learn what is required and don’t get distracted by shiny objects and useless information. Just focus on your target…
Don’t just trust everyone… learn from the leaders in the industry. Follow the one who is making good money. The truth is that nobody is going to share their secret of making money but it is YOU who has to find the right tactics and use those. Or the other way to learn is to find a coach or program like this where you can get all the information required under one roof. That way you will be able to concentrate more on building a business instead of overloading yourself with information.
A thinker – who thinks out of the box
Always think out of the box. if you are doing what other struggling affiliate marketers are doing, you will fail … do the opposite to what others are doing. They are struggling because they are not action takers, they don’t want to put money in their business because they have a fear of losing the game and this is where you need to change your mindset and do the opposite.
If you are using FB, build relationships with people out there. Create your own page and stay active as much as you can by sharing good valuable posts and try to engage them. keep inviting people and once your reach 10k mark .. start monetizing your FB page … Although I am not putting much effort on that side .. 🙂 but still, I know this is a good way to generate good business
Spending time to build a business
If you think that you can build a business working just 5-10 minutes a day and rest of the time spending on reading emails etc then you are wrong.
You will have to put some efforts and time to make your business grow. Start with 30 minutes a day and concentrate more on promotions/traffic generation techniques instead of reading emails.
Make a daily schedule and put that into action every day… even if you join some kind of team, you will still have to put 100% of the efforts to increase your income. Read emails only once a day it could be either in the morning or in the evening.. go to Facebook once or twice a day .. same way.. either in the morning or in the evening.. but you will have to make sure that the 30 or 60 minutes you need to use only for promotions of your business.
Spending Money On Your Business
Most people think that they can build a business without spending a dime in their business but that is a wrong and misguided statement … nothing is free in this world my friend. and if someone says that SEO is a free way to generate traffic than think again … is it really a freeway … Although the word is “free” in this method but you are putting lots of time and if you remember TIME=MONEY… Every hour you spend is worth some money.
A good copywriter, article writer and an ad writer
This is a very critical part basically If you want to do all the stuff yourself. But if you have money and planning to hire the experts then you don’t need to worry much about this point but doing all the stuff yourself needs you to be a master in playing with the words. The best way to judge what people want to read is to find a few blogs in the same niche as yours and compare which got more subscribers than others.
Then read the content of the person who has more subscriber and compare the stuff with a person who has fewer subscribers…. you will come to know what to write and how to write to attract more visitors/subscribers.
Good at Getting Traffic
Master yourself in this method. Believe me, this is the one you need to concentrate more. Not just traffic but you need to master yourself in getting target traffic that converts.
Useless traffic will only disappoint you because you will only feel that you are not able to generate sales and that is why I ask my readers to avoid generating traffic from a place which is free and promises millions of hits to website etc… Always try to get targeted traffic which can be generated using SEO, PPC, SMM etc… hire an expert and put some money to generate sales..
After all, this is your business and you want to grow it and want to be financially secured… When I was in Job, I put at least 90% of my efforts and now I am in online business, I put 100% of the efforts..
The logic is simple. This is my business and I want to make it grow every day. If I can put 90% in my job, why can’t I put 100% in my own business? After all, this is my business ;)…
