Affiliate Marketing has to be the oldest and most successful form of marketing for newbies to become involved in. There are issues though that impede more often than encourage production so the success ratio can be very slow in coming.
For each worker facing the J.O.B. daily, the frustrations of poor
pay, long commutes and dealing with stressed out customers all
day long can take their toll It can seem like a breath of fresh
air to find the right affiliate program and dig right in.
A few of the greatest benefits for working affiliate programs
- NO bosses anymore
NO impossible deadlines to stress over
Forget the piles of work waiting every morning
That long commute is history
No more rude drivers cursing you out
Getting over these issues create the worry next that you just
gotta make those promised dollars or you are right back working
for the Man.
1. How is your work ethic? What do you put yourself and fellow
workers through when something goes wrong? What’s your
attitude towards training? How easy do you find it to learn
ALL of these things are integral parts to your willingness to learn.
There is no magic bullet. No fairey Godmother waving her wand
to make you a success. If you do not have a strong desire to learn
then you are not going to make it.
2. What is your time frame for working any affiliate program?
You may be interested in working more than one. How easily are
you discouraged? Your desire to learn can only be topped by your
willingness to invest both time and effort into building your
I hear you. You are not interested in building a business. Well
you may not be interested in being a successful affiliate either.
It is not about you building more affiliates for you or producing
a store front web site. Just remember, as long as you are out to
sell a product or service to a willing buyer you are in a business.
3. How determined are you to succeed? To learn how to become a
top producing affiliate? To listen to the necessary training to
help you improve your skills? However you start, you will find it
is an absolute necessity to learn how to push yourself to greater
heights in your journey.
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the
stars.” So said internationally known and admired band leader,
composer, author, arranger and conductor LES BROWN
4. Now we come to Discipline. Way back at the beginning where I
listed the benefits, I issued the dire warning they could rebound
NO MORE BOSSES – who will teach your mind and your inner resolve
that you MUST work EVERY day?
Who will make sure you set a time schedule and stick to it?
The sleep till noon, watch the soaps and work till supper time,
is not exactly a productive day schedule.
Desire, drive and determination become the foundation of
discipline that determines success.
5. We need to add one more. Underlying each of these qualities
lies Attitude. The biggy one that can make or break you faster
than turning your head to see where you’ve been.
Bad attitudes abound in fellow marketers, some leaders who may
be but should not be leaders, and unhappy customers. By both
developing and practicing the right levels of optimism, you
can save the day, and more importantly save the deal.
If you fit into the positive side of these qualities, knowing
your strengths puts you in control of your future. Go take on
the world of becoming a top producing affiliate. Good luck!
