You’ve got to be an A+ marketer to stay alive in affiliate marketing.
You’ve got to constantly be promoting the latest things, leaving “likes” all over so people click back to you, leaving posts on forums, building SEO mini-sites, testing squeeze pages, burning through Adwords fees, “friending” a million people on facebook, promoting product that is junk, (and then writing a “don’t buy that crud product, buy this crud product” article when you are done with that outdated version.)
And here’s the hook…you DO make some money sometimes. But you are always dumping one pile of goodies, (like maybe every day?) to run to a bigger pile of goodies.
You’re a nomad, affiliate. Just as soon as the water runs dry in one place, you run to the next.
I suppose that’s okay, affiliate. But how about this. How about sticking your roots down in one market that you know won’t run dry….other than the market of affiliate marketing?
Affiliate, I know you. You have trouble bonding….with products. “Why should I waste my time on a product that will take me 10 years to promote online, when I can scatter this seed to all of the other affiliates who will gobble it up?”
The answer, affiliate, is because you are better than that. You are higher than that. You’re an eagle, not a ground pecking fowl.
And you absolutely have what it takes to be at the top of the heap selling one product, off one website, number one on Google.
Yes! That’s the kind of success you need to be after.
