The #1 Key to Your Affiliate Marketing Success?
What is the most important thing for success as an affiliate marketer?
Personally, I think that choosing your affiliate programs is among the most important things.
$0.39 vs $2170 Commission
When I started with affiliate marketing, I didn't understand things very well.
I started promoting books on Amazon that I've found useful.
- The Bible
- Rich Dad, Poor Dad
- The Magic of Thinking Big
- The Millionaire Fastlane
However, there was one major problem that I realized after a while.
If I'd ever want to make a full-time income with that, it would require THOUSANDS OF SALES EVERY MONTH.
If the Bible costs $9.75 and I earn a 4% commission on Amazon, it means that I'll earn $0.39 for a sale.
In order to earn even $3,900/month, I'd need to make 10,000 sales which would require some world-class marketing skill and heavy investments.
Nowadays I use affiliate programs that can pay even $2,170 for a sale.
Notice the difference?
Perfect Affiliate Program?
I think a perfect affiliate program has at least these 3 components:
- The product helps truly your audience.
- You enjoy working on it (=you get to do what you love).
- It pays well.
I'm blessed that I've found an industry and many products where all of those 3 are combined perfectly. I believe that you can find such wonderful products in any industry!
This topic is so important that I decided to host a Live Class series here in WA about choosing the right affiliate programs in August.
You can already set a reminder for the first class here.
2nd Key to Success
Another key component is persistence/long-term time horizon.
Even if you'd have a perfect affiliate program, you can't expect results in a second.
That's why I recommend every Wealthy Affiliate member to get a Yearly Membership!
It will set you up for success.
Next week there will be a heavy discount available for the yearly membership.
Just remember to log in to Wealthy Affiliate next week and you'll see this great deal.
I think that every long-term Wealthy Affiliate member agrees that having a yearly membership here has been one of the best decisions in life.
