Affiliate Marketing - Have You Got What it Takes to Be an Affiliate Marketer?

Jul 11th 2010 at 5:21 AM

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to earn a six figure income online in only 12 months? Sounds lovely when you say it to yourself doesn't it, but what if it were really possible to earn this amount. would you be interested in learning how. Well you might be in luck because I can show you, providing you are willing to do just one thing.

You may be wondering what is the one thing that I want you to do.Well simply put it's WORK yes good old fashioned and plain boring work.It sounds so obvious but it's true. If you were expecting me to reveal a top level secret magic formula which avoids work, sorry it doesn't exist.

Enjoy What You Do

If the thought of doing work frightens you then don't worry, because I'm going to tell you something which will take away 75% of the pain that Affiliate Marketing causes. Which is, just enjoy doing it. Let me explain I really enjoy doing Affiliate Marketing therefore it does not feel like hard work to me. It is often said that if you can find a job that you truly enjoy, a job where you get paid money but would gladly do it for free, then you have found paradise. I would just like to state for the record that as much as I enjoy doing Affiliate Marketing, I would not do it for free.

Think Long Term

Don't be fooled into thinking that you will make thousands of dollars over a short period of time. Unless you were born a genius it just won't happen. Prepare yourself to succeed over the long haul and you will achieve far greater results. Commit yourself to life time learning because nothing in affiliate marketing stays the same for long, Don't tell close friends and family unless they share a common interest, otherwise you will leave yourself open to the, I knew it wouldn't work brigade

How much will It Cost You

This will be the deal breaker for you so the only possible answer that I can give is how much do you want to earn. I don't want to sound like a politician by answering my own question with another question, but it's true. How much you earn in Affiliate Marketing depends on time ,effort, and money in that order. It costs very little to make money online but you will have to spend more money to earn a full time income.

You now know the qualities needed to succeed in Affiliate Marketing. If I haven't scared you off the idea by now then you will probably be able to survive your first few rocky months in this industry. During this period you will be tempted more than once to give up for various reasons. Ranging from lack of time to lack of money or a combination of both. On top of this you will still have to contend with the dreaded information overload which in my opinion will be your biggest problem.

When you eventually do hit the brick wall in Affiliate Marketing and you will, just try to picture yourself 2yrs,3yrs,or however far ahead you need to go to see the successful you, and this thought will pull you through the bad times.
