Affiliate marketing – Is it Really Easy?
How do I make money while I sleep with affiliate marketing?
Ha ha…you wish…! Despite what you may be led to believe you will only make money while you sleep with affiliate marketing – in your dreams!
Basically there is far, far more to affiliate marketing than you have obviously been led to believe.
Yes, technically… IF you have put in ALL the effort. Spent huge amounts of money. Or huge amounts of time and effort – or both, going through a complex learning curve. Eventually a sale of two will inevitably come in while you are sleeping…
But then the next day you will have to carry on working hard trying to find ever more people you can flog stuff to. Otherwise your earnings will, of course, stop.
Affiliate marketing is a dreary treadmill. A rat-race…if you want to be successful at it. Most of the top established affiliate marketers employ people to do most of the advertising and promoting for them.
Ah, unfortunately you will never be one of these people. If you start out by thinking about earning money while you sleep!
Being a seller is NOT easy!
Selling other people’s products by affiliate marketing, at first, seems to be the easiest route to earning money Online. You have no product creation to think about. Or customer service to be concerned with, or sales copy to write. Everything is already done for you. And best of all you can pick and chose only the best, and most popular products, to sell. Great!
Ah, unfortunately, it is not quite as easy as it would appear. As many of the make-money-online gurus would have you believe.
Every man and his dog…and cat, is given the advice to start with ‘affiliate marketing’. The competition for sales is immense.
What you are not told is that to be successful at affiliate marketing;
you WILL need a website.
You WILL need a (considerable) advertising budget.
You WILL need to learn a high level of marketing expertise
You WILL need a ‘capture page’
You WILL need an email list
You WILL need to be able to write well
You WILL need to become an ‘expert’ in your niche
You WILL have to spend a huge amount of time and effort in this
You WILL lose more money than you earn at first – (likely period)
And after (IF) you master all these things – you will have to constantly be a seller – sell, sell, sell – if you want to keep earning. There is nothing passive, or recurring with income made from selling stuff – it is an endless slog.
Once you make a sale (if ever) you need another and another. Or your business will just die. All (certainly most) products can only be sold once to each person. So, to be successful you will require an endless supply of buyers.
Selling other people’s stuff is competitive.
Do not believe that you can simply do some social media hustling to bring about sales. IF you do happen to find someone who actually does wants to buy what you are offering…like me, they are very likely to search for other people’s reviews of the product.
You will be selling nothing that other marketers much more expert than you will also be selling. Most…ALL, successful affiliate marketers have huge supplies of extra ‘bonuses’ they can give away to entice the sale from them.
Also, the most successful affiliate marketers Online. The ones who have become rich doing this – most of their success comes from endlessly peddling stuff to their email lists. Which have taken a lot of time, effort and expense to build.
I can tell you, by my own experience (being on such lists) I do not have any affinity at all, with any of the affiliate sellers. Their endless ‘shiny new object’ sales pitches, for every new thing that comes along. And their pseudo-claims that they want to help me be successful – are frankly irritating at best. At worst, are simply sickening.
How can ANYONE claim to want to help others…
if the only way of doing so, is to endlessly sell them stuff? Surely, it is you (the buyer) helping them? Not them helping you!
Whenever a ‘shiny new object’, scheme, software, program, or product, is launched, my inbox is full of (always) the same people. Over and over again telling me THIS is the best thing ever for me. I should not be without it. Then of course the very next thing is the best thing ever for me. And I should not be without it…and on and on it goes. A never-ending hype-fest.
Is this really what you want to get into?
There is a far easier and more fulfilling way of making money online. Than trying to flog stuff that most people really do not need anyway…
And that is by actually helping other people to make money. Rather than trying to get them to spend it!
If you are starting out from scratch – trying to earn an income Online…or you if are continuing to struggle doing it – there is a far, far easier and better way (a virtually fail-proof way) to do it, than by trying to sell people stuff, that they really do not need.
Ensuring other people get success in earning money, (even if only a little success at first) is the BEST way to ensure you make money yourself. You invoke the ‘Universal Law…often called the ‘Law of Attraction’. You GIVE, (help) first, rather than TAKE (a profit).
‘Making Money Mindset’
I suggest you read my brand new (unique) book. In which I reveal the real truths about affiliate marketing – you have NOT been told.
You can get a copy for FREE by following this link
I will also introduce you to a truly authentic (fail-proof) business opportunity where you pay NOTHING up front. You pay only AFTER you are 100% CERTAIN of financial success. You then offer this opportunity to other people to help them. To ensure they make money…which, of course, you will also financially benefit from.
And – yes…this will very quickly become an ever-growing ‘passive’ income – that WILL keep coming in while you sleep! (I can absolutely promise you that!)
Ah, one last thing – it takes an action-taker to earn money while sleeping NOT a ‘Dreamer’…
