Affiliate Marketing Success is a dream for every beginner affiliate marketer.
It does seem wonderful, doesn’t it?
The idea of sitting at home in your pajamas and watching the dollars pour into your PayPal account.
The beauty of not creating a product, handling fulfillment, and customer support, etc.
but still earning a juicy commission for each sale.
And of course, who can deny the joy of not working for anyone… and living life the way you want to.
but are these merely castles built on polluted air?
Is it really possible to make a 5 or even 6 figure salary as an affiliate marketer?
Or is this dream only reserved for a lucky few?
Here’s the truth.
If you’re reading this, you too can do it.
The only things that separate the minority who succeed from the majority who don’t, are just a few simple practices and a mindset that makes all the difference.
I’ll give you 5 tips that you should follow.
You can bet your last dollar that the top affiliates are using all the tips below.
Neglecting these tips can be detrimental to your affiliate marketing quest.
Let’s Get Started!
𝗚𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘂𝗽 𝗶𝘀 𝗡𝗢𝗧 𝗮𝗻 𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻
The road to becoming a good affiliate or a top affiliate is not exactly a walk in a park.
There will be a learning curve that you’ll need to go through.
You will encounter failures repeatedly and will face self-doubts often.
If you throw in the towel and quit during the hard yards, you will never see success.
You have to realize that affiliate marketing is not easy, same as starting your own business (that’s just facts)
Just get over it and do it anyway.
Success usually comes to the affiliate marketers who keep trying, keep pushing forward, keep learning from mistakes and making corrections, etc.
Success is not a linear process.
Instant success is a myth.
Most people think that other successful people got success overnight but in reality, it took them months and years of hard work and patience.
Understand that this is a myth.
My suggestion is to not get distracted by this overnight success story because the journey is where all the magic happens.
You must have the strength to persevere till you attain success.
Failure may be a setback but never an option, keep on keeping on.
The snake-oil salesman tactics are long gone in the digital marketing era…
Today, people buy from people they know, like, and trust.
Back in the day when digital products and courses weren’t as prevalent, there were many marketers who would just run simple ads and make a lot of money without ever having to put themselves “out there”.
But as more of these programs and systems started surfacing more and more people became cynical and hesitant to buy from people they don’t know.
Connecting with your target audience, having genuine conversations with them, addressing their problems, talking to them like a normal human being without ulterior motives go a long way in our times.
In other words, you MUST be willing to brand yourself and so you can establish yourself as an authority in your niche which will result in people getting to know and trust you much faster.

You must have a plan and work on the plan.
Do not create a new plan every 10 minutes and hop from plan to plan.
Create a detailed plan of action and follow through with it to finality.
Only by doing this can you hope to achieve any success.
Many affiliate marketers get distracted.
One day they’re doing video marketing and the next day they’re thinking of selling tee-shirts on Facebook.
“The eagle that chases two rabbits catches neither”
It’s a good saying.
However, eagles always have the good sense to only target one prey.
It’s marketers who have problems staying focused.
If you study what successful people do, you’ll find patterns.
When you model those patterns, you’ll be able to model their success.
𝗡𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗽 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴
It’s tough but that’s the way it is.
The online landscape is always in flux.
Nothing is constant but change.
What does that mean?
It means you will constantly need to keep learning and adapting.
You will need to stay updated and enjoy the learning process.
For example, old static sites are dropping like flies in the SERP rankings for not being mobile responsive.
So, marketers had to hurry and make their sites mobile responsive because more people are surfing the net with their smartphones these days.
Stop wishing that things were easier and start working to become better.

Never put all your eggs in one basket.
When you become a successful affiliate marketer, you may look towards creating your own products.
For example, if you’re making good money promoting a digital book about tinnitus, how about getting your own tinnitus eBook created?
You could make sales for yourself, recruit other affiliates to promote your product, etc.
The possibilities are endless and highly interesting.
Learn to outsource the less important stuff.
Focus on working on the business and not in the business.
Of course, it will take time to reach this level where you can leverage.
However, once you’re ready, go for it and your earnings will skyrocket.
When this happens, you will become a part of the elite marketers that you once looked up to.
It may have taken you a while to get there…
but you’re there now.
Give yourself a pat on the back and keep going.
Most people enjoy the idea of starting their own online business, making passive income, and having financial freedom.
But they don’t even want to act on the idea.
The best time to start your online business was 4 years ago.
The second best time to start is RIGHT NOW.
If you want to know where you should start, I can point you in the right direction, but it’s up to you to start taking action.
If you want to know what I would do differently I would have to start all over again today…
I can tell you this:
- Start with affiliate marketing for passivity & freedom
- Pick a niche you’re interested in which is in demand
- Learn from the ones who have achieved what you want to achieve.
You’ll have to make a decision for the first and second points.
I can help you with the third.
