Meeting an affiliate failure.
I was at a party yesterday. There was someone there I had been told about. He had been having a go at affiliate marketing and had failed. I sought him out and over the loud music quickly brought the conversation round to affiliate marketing. What had he tried, and had he really failed?
He was very negative and told me that I was welcome to try but that he had never had a cent from affiliate marketing. I was a bit shocked, but when I probed a little deeper I finally got to the reason. He got bored with writing content. He pretty much put a couple of things out there on his site then left it at that.
Now from what I have found out here at WA, you need to provide quality content for your readers. It's really not enough to write a couple of things and then move on to eBay selling instead. If there's one thing that I've learned here it seems to be "Never give up". Many people say you need to give it a good year of total commitment.
The ex-affiliate marketer wished me good luck. I was glad I had spoken to him.
It had disturbed me to think that affiliate marketing had failed him, but in the end I discovered that the truth was that he had failed himself.
