I am not really sure if I have chosen the right title for this post but I guess it sounds cool anyway The question is why some affiliate marketers don’t make money while others do doing the same damn thing? It’s interesting isn’t it? Well, there is that little detail that nobody is talking about. That little detail is always left out from all these products you buy from Clickbank, and it’s one of the biggest reasons why this actually happens.
You see, super affiliates do a lot of testing, tracking, and research before they hit a winning campaign. That requires CASH. Sorry but that’s the truth. Most super affiliates sell their own products in the background while building their lists and establishing themselves. They have a steady cashflow that allows them to test and throw money into campaigns even though they are losing at the beginning. It’s the data they are after so they can optimize and make their campaign profitable.
The affiliate marketer who doesn’t have a steady cashflow can’t do this by himself. It’s a fact. Most affiliates want a winning campaign right from the start. They just want to hit the switch and hope for piles of cash in their bank account. It doesn’t work like that (at least not anymore..maybe 6 years ago) All the gurus tell you that you should start with affiliate marketing first because you don’t have to create a product, deal with customers, refunds etc.
I think that you should start with selling something. Even if it’s just a $7 ebook or whatever start selling something! While selling your products you can get into affiliate marketing. You can outsource then all your sites, content etc. Then you got money to run campaigns and you can afford to dump a few $1000s to collect the data so that you know what and how it’s converting.
Super affiliates build big lists by selling product through affiliates who drive traffic for them. It’s called leverage. Levarage is the most powerful word EVER! Always try to leverage your efforts through others. Trust me, it works!
