After all, who would buy from you, something that they themselves are currently marketing.

2nd: How passionate are you yourself in the affiliate system/product that you're pushing out to your hopefully, high value list. Are you totally convinced that this hot new affiliate product will be of real benefit to them? Of course, this answer should by all means be YES. Because why in the world would you risk your online reputation on something that will be of little or absolutely no realistic benefit to them. (that's marketing suicide).  You should know with-out a shadow of a doubt that the hot new affiliate system or product will be of high beneficial use to your high value list. (right)... Your main focus should always be to be provide your customers with the highest quality consumer benefit that you're capable of.

4th: Follow the leaders and not the crowd. Meaning in your process of completing your "Due Diligence" duties, marketers should take time to thoroughly investigate the techniques and strategies that the really successful affiliate marketers are doing.

(remember that).  Be careful in this also, success is not always easy to spot, because just cause you notice someone simply speaking of making thousands of dollars every single day online, this does not make them the success stories that you want to imitate. Due Diligence is your real duty, you must find out who is really living the truth and who is simply selling you a dream.

5th: Stop!  You're probably asking yourself, "Stop what". Stop being unrealistic... Are you one of those people with the highly unrealistic idea that you're going to do a few affiliate marketing campaigns or promotions and the money is going to magically start to pour into your pockets. Stop! This is not going to happen for the vast number of affiliate marketers.  Yes it does happen for some, but these are super high rollers with a tremendous amount of funds and a huge list of people at their disposal. This frame of thinking is a true death sentence for most people. Be patient and steady in your online marketing efforts and you'll have a real chance to succeed in your affiliate efforts.
