Many people dream of quitting their jobs and making a full time income with affiliate marketing. This is what they are really wishing for.
In reality, you cannot make a full time income with affiliate marketing in one month. You might get 10 or 20 sales per site, but this usually doesn’t lead to a monthly income. The truth is, you are better off starting small and building up from there.
You also might not get many sales in the beginning. You need to have a well planned and executed website and you need quality traffic. You need to test various marketing options to see which works best for your niche.
It does not take a year to build a website. The first web sites can be created within a day or two with some experience on the part of the new affiliate marketer. The big mistake many new affiliates make is that they try to rush their website. This usually leads to a complete failure.
The first step should be to create a website with a clear purpose. A niche that you understand well. It would be best to start simple and then expand from there. Remember, you need to test different marketing methods before you find the one works.
If you only start selling cold, then you will end up selling nowhere. It would be better to offer cold products that are well prepared.
You can find free websites and even pay money for such purposes. It is advisable to start with something that you know well. This would also improve your website’s ranking in the search engines. As your website increases in the search engines, people visiting your site will tend to click on more of your affiliate links. You will thus gain more sales.
You can even try Google AdSense. If you have a product to promote, this is a great method to monetize it. The drawback with Google AdSense is you need to have a site to be able to benefit from it.
This is the disadvantage of joining an affiliate program before you have a website. You also need to test various marketing campaigns before you find the one that works.
