Here are two main reasons people fail at affiliate marketing
Most people are NOT suited for Affiliate Marketing….I know that flies in the face of what you may have been told in the past.. but it’s true.
Most people are looking for fast easy cash. We live in an instant gratification society. A ‘flick a switch’, ‘turn it on’ world where if it’s worth having, it’s worth having now!
The thing is….. Affiliate Marketing (apart from the odd exception that proves the rule) takes time and effort to establish a foundation for success. It is not a ‘get rich quick’ silver bullet.
In fact, many of those who now talk of their success, who can demonstrate tens of thousands a month in profit, will willingly tell you that for some time they failed. Do you know the saying….
“Failure is not an option, it’s a surefire certainty!”
Well that is so true of Affiliate Marketing. To succeed you have to be prepared to fail, learn from your failures, experiment, and may be fail again, before you get the right results. Success is built on the foundation of failure.
The problem is that most people are not prepared to fail. They are not prepared to spend money trying different approaches. They are prepared to invest the time learning and adapting.
It may be that you are reading this blog because you have tried Affiliate Marketing and failed….but failing does not make you a failure, giving up does.
So, if you have failed, but still fighting to make a success of Affiliate Marketing, then you have already cut yourself apart from the majority, who give up rather than keep going and chalking failure up to experience and consider each one a step towards success.
Its true that you can start an online business for next to nothing… you can, for instance build a business around Facebook, but it is rare that this on it’s own will bring success. For the most part there are three things that require an investment of time and money.
Education…. Again you can get free education by searching Youtube and signing up to free webinars. But this will only take you so far. To ensure that you have a well-rounded, systematic, and effective education you will need to be prepared to invest in your training. This may be a few dollars at the bottom end through to tens of thousands at the top end.
However, education is essential to your success, and investing some cash getting the inside scoop on a proven, profitable system can really help take you to the next level.
If you are wondering what level that might be, based on where you are at in your online journey, why not take our fun simple Affiliate Marketing Bird quiz? Answer a few questions about what you are looking to achieve and what you are prepared to invest and discover if you are destined to soar with the Eagles or be forever scratching around for worms with the turkeys.
There are some essential tools that every Affiliate Marketer needs if they are going to make a sustainable business. The most important will be website hosting, so you are able to control your own brand identity. An autoresponder, so that you can be automatically emailing your crowing list of subscribers, relentlessly moving them from prospect to customer to client.
Whilst it is not necessary to pay for visitors to your offer, it is undeniable that paid for traffic is an effective strategy to speed up the acquisition of opt in to your list. A regular monthly spend on advers, solo ads, or banners will make a huge difference to the speed at which you crow a critical mass of followers and subscribers.

Over the last few years it has become very apparent that the internet has transformed the way we go about our daily lives. It is amazing how many companies have gone to the wall because of our shopping habits. Where once there was a BlockBusters in every town, now there is Amazon Prime, Netflix, Google Play and the like in almost every living room. Its just one example of how our daily lives, and how we choose to shop, has changed.
With the growth of online shopping, has come a gigantic growth in home business, laptop business and ecommerce entrepreneurs making a mint on line. I am sure you have seen them. Some are fake, yes, but many are not. Indeed I have met with a number who make hundreds of thousands a year online.
The chances you are reading my blog because you are looking for more income. You want to get a bit of the ecommerce action. You want to make money online.
You are scouring the internet for something that will provide more money and give you more time for what YOU really want to do. Be that retire early, provide for your kids, enjoy more free time or take the holidays that today you can only dream of.
I know what that feels like. I too have spent hours and money looking at many different ways to succeed with internet marketing. Well today I can save you so much of that heartache.
Remember what I said about meeting up with successful entrepreneurs? Well I decided about a year ago to stop messing around at this, and to pay for a mentor to guide me through this minefield. I spent thousands of dollars with him, and what he has taught me has opened my eyes to how people really make money online. The first thing you need to know is that it takes time and commitment to make it online. Maybe not as much time as you might thing, but probably more commitment that you can image right now. It means taking targeted DAILY action.
The good news is that Dean Holland, my mentor, has put together some great new, up to date, laser focused training. To promote the new training he is looking to get testimonials from Internet Marketing Newbies, you know, things like
‘I really did not know how to start making money online, but this training took me step by step through what I needed to do and after 4 months I had my first $1000 commission day!”
To do this Dean is allowing a small number of us to give away this training for free!. ..

This guy walks into a bar, and says,
“look, I don’t have any money, but if my dancing chicken can entertain you customers, will you give me a pint.”
“OK” says the bar tender.
The man puts a biscuit tin on the bar, and puts his chicken on it. Straight away the chicken starts dancing, like its on a little stage.
The other customers gather round, cheering the chicken on, eventually the man takes the chicken off the tin and says,
“Can I have my pint”
“Yes!” says the bar tender, “but, look, I want to see this again, will you come back tomorrow, and I will put the word around about your amazing dancing chicken. If it pulls in the punters, I will pay you £20 and you can have two free beers.”
“Deal!” says the man.
Next day the word has gone out, the bar is crowded, the man turns up, puts the biscuit tin on the counter, puts the chicken on, and it starts to dance.
The crowd love it! The Bar tender is happy as the crowd are buying beer, it’s a great success.
“Can I have my money and my beers” says the man.
“Yes” says the bartender, “but can you come back tomorrow, same deal.”
“I dont know,” says the man, “I am busy packing tomorrow night, I have to go up state the morning after.”
“Look”, says the bartender. “I think I am on to a winner here. If you leave the bird with me, I will pay you $500. What do you say?”
The man thought about it and said “Ok then, you take the bird, and I’ll take the money”
“Ok” says the Bartender, “leave the bird with me, I will make some money, you come back tomorrow night around about closing time and I will give you your $500”
The next night the man goes to collect his money, but the bar man is not happy.
“What’s the matter?” the man asks,.
“It’s your chicken” the barman replies. “I put him on the tin, but he won’t dance.”
“Really?” The man replies, “let me have a look”
He takes the chicken off the biscuit tin, opens the lid, and says…”there’s your problem, you haven’t lit the candle”.
OK, so its not a true story… but it is fairly true to my experience with affiliate marketing.
I could see these guys doing amazing things, and making good money online. I mean, they really had those online marketing chickens dancing. I was hooked. I would splash a bit of cash and get a taste of what they had to offer, then I would by the whole system. I would think, this is it…. I am now gonna make money just like them. I don’t care if I don’t make millions, but I do want to make thousands, and with this ‘Wonder Widget System’ … how could I fail….but each time I did fail. The chicken just would not dance for me!
It’s not till I spoke to one of these successful guys, and got to see under the lid, that I finally cracked on to how it all works. And guess what? It is surprisingly simple!
Now I know, I have started to make money from a couple of systems.
One of the easiest is the “Commission Cartel”. For less that $10 Michael Chenney lifts the lid of the tin that holds the secret to successful affiliate marketing.

Sometimes, when people who I have just met ask me “What do you do for a living?” I respond, “I’m an internet marketer”
They range from people who understand it, and, in some cases, instantly want to do business with me.
To those who know absolutely nothing about it.
To those who think I must be some sort of scammer or spammer! (I am not either, honest!)
For those who don’t know what it is, and ask for an explanation, usually end up saying something like, “That’s cool, I wish I could do what you do.” Yeah. I agree. It’s pretty cool once you get the hang of it,
and guess what… you can!
You are sitting in business class on a plane, or on the beach at an exotic location, or buying your dream car…. And the guy across from you asks:
“So what do you do?”
And when you say, “I’m an Internet Marketer”. It not only sounds really cool, but could potentially
bring you new business.
You need a great system to follow and the determination to follow through.
You need an affordable system that provides tremendous products and is backed by an extremely successful coach who will walk you through everything.
You can find one such system and person here. So why not drop me an email at:
firstname.lastname@example.org. with the heading. “Can I do that?”
All the best.
Sometimes human creativity amazes me.
Check this headline I saw a while back:
“Florida woman earns middle-class salary selling positive pregnancy tests on Craigslist.”
What the ….?
This woman is pregnant so she sells urine to people who want to have a positive pregnancy test. Here what she says:
Very self-explanatory, I am 6 months and I am providing a product
in which the consumer is able to purchase positive pregnancy tests
or urine for your own use.
Whether you are using it for your own amusement such as a prank,
or to blackmail the CEO of apple who you are having an affair with
I DON’T CARE AT ALL.
This is an absolutely no questions asked the type of deal, tell me
what you need I provide it for monetary exchange.
I will not overcharge for the urine test but I will not be low balled
either do not contact me if you are going to be cheap and difficult”
If she pees 5-10 times a day that can make her $150-300 per day. Not bad, not bad at all. And she can work at her own convenience!
She’ll make a decent side income. But then what? What when the baby is born? Back to a dead end job?
Great idea, but not exactly sustainable. I hope she makes good use of the money she makes cause it wont last forever.
How can she make good use of the cash?
Well for one, I would suggest to start her own online business.
An online business can provide a great, regular and significant income. And you don’t have to be pregnant to
make it work!
Ok, you wont be raking in cash on the first day. It’s not instant cash like this ladies urine test.
An online business takes some time to start rolling. BUT…
When it’s up and running you don’t need to spend your time stuck on the loo or meeting with whackos who want your urine.
What about you?
Interested in making money online?
If you are not looking for a get rich quick scheme, if you are ready to put in the effort, if you are prepared to grow a real online business then I can recommend a great way to get
Check out Commission Cartel from Michael Chenney
She’s in college and needs the money.
She had to choose between selling pregnancy tests or trying to find a job that accepts someone six months pregnant.
Under this new information, even if bizarre, her choice is a good one (Still not the best though.)
If only she had known about Commission Cartel
