I am very happy writing this post today on the most frequently asked questions in affiliate marketing, there are new affiliate marketers who have a lot of doubt regarding affiliate marketing and they just don’t find a solution for all their questions in one single place. So I wanted to help these beginners by answering to some of their questions and contribute back to the affiliate marketing community that is helping many small business owners to build a successful business.
Well let me start off with the most popular question.
Is there money in affiliate marketing?
My answer is yes, I personally earn a decent money from affiliate marketing and even I had a doubt whether this marketing stuff works or not but once I got my first check, all my doubts were cleared. There are many other success stories but the road to success was never easy, you have to work smart and dedicate some of your time doing the right stuff at the right time.
How much can you earn as an affiliate?
Well it varies and each individual has a different earning potential and there is always an opportunity to expand so it is all about the number game. The more number of products or services you promote successfully the higher will be your earnings.
Do you require any initial investment to start?
It is not mandatory to spend money to start affiliate marketing, you can use many free resources like free sites, web 2.0 and earn your first dollars. But it is recommended that you own a website after earning some cash initially, your own website provides you more control and features which is not available with free sites.
What type of products to promote?
You might know this but I have to tell you my personal answer to this question. There are new affiliate programs coming up every day and not all are worth promoting, some make money and some end up being a total loser, so it is essential you choose a good affiliate program. Try your best to promote only evergreen products, by this I mean the products which are in-demand in all the seasons. Always remember that in affiliate marketing quality matters the most.
Once you make a sale then just repeat it again, go back and see what helped you achieve this sale affiliate marketing is all about doing things which work.
Success = Quality + Consistency + Patience
Success is a combination of promoting quality product consistently to target audience and ultimately you need to show some patience until things start working for you. Do not give up easily, nothing is impossible in this world and affiliate marketing is easy if you have the knowledge and determination to succeed. Final words keep yourself updated because things change very quickly online so you need to adapt for these new situation if you want to see success.
