How Can I Be Successful in Affiliate Marketing?
It's an unfortunate statistics that over 90% of new businesses fail within the first three months of operation.
It's probably even higher for online businesses because the barriers to entry, including cost, are much lower.
Making it easy to shrug your shoulders and walk away.
"Easy come, easy go".
I don't want to let that happen to you. Here are the answers to the eternal question "How can I be successful in affiliate marketing?"
Many Years to Become an Overnight Success
They say that failure is just one of the stepping-stones to success.
I can agree with that one hundred percent.
I retired after 48 years in IT and decided to use my superannuation to buy a bricks and mortar business that the whole family could be involved with.
Probably should have checked with the whole family first!
Turned out they had no intention of joining me in the new venture and, to cut a long story short, I ran it into the ground and lost everything.
In fact, I had no choice but to file for bankruptcy with massive debts to the bank and the tax office.
That lasted three years and was a pretty tough time.
I came out of it clear of debt but broke.
But still had a skill set from all my time in IT.
Could I leverage that into new income?
Well, like a kid learning to ski, I had lots of false starts and lots of falls.
But I got up again, over and over (yes, old enough to remember Madonna at her best).
And, I'm pleased to say, cracked the secret.
I now have around 30 online businesses, all producing a substantial retirement income.
And the thing is, it's a lot of fun. I really enjoy doing it. To me, it's not work, it only takes a few hours a week and I can do it anywhere (with an internet connection) and any time of the day or night.
My first site ever was in affiliate marketing and it's where you should start too.

You'll Never be an Affiliate Marketer
I'm glad to say that this never happened to me (but perhaps people were just too polite).
It did happen to a friend of mine.
She was having coffee with a good friend. She felt like she needed some encouragement, so told her all about her plans to create an affiliate marketing website.
But the "friend" looked at her skeptically, asking if she really thought she could do this online thing. She even said she was crazy to try to do it – and that she should just get a “real job” instead.
But you know what? That friend wasn’t the right person to talk to. She didn’t know anything about affiliate marketing or online businesses.
"It's hard to fly when you're surrounded by turkeys."
What she needed were people who would get it. And not only people who would understand, but also mentors who could offer her helpful advice and a boost of confidence!
