What do gamblers and affiliate marketers have in common?
Yes marketer, that was a moment of silence
Because I think you all know the answer to this.
It’s the belief that “this ticket will be the winning one” that keeps gamblers and affiliates hooked.
Please know, most of us have been there.
It’s a drag doing the same marketing tasks day after day; and with no hope of a pay off, there is only one choice to getting an instant feeling of accomplishment.
Before I proceed, I want to say that there ARE people who make a living wage by being a gambler. And there are people who do affiliate marketing, and they make money (not that I recommend either). If you are an affiliate mareter and you make a living wage, that’s okay…provided you are happy as an affiliate, prosperous as an affiliate, and provided your affiliate product’s company doesn’t go out of business. I know–it’s a diversity game, as in the more products you are an affiliate for, the less chance of this happening.
There’s also more than one thing to promote. As in constantly. Because the real diversity with affiliate marekting is the divesity of people competing with you…as in, a LOT of people, more than in selling your own product.
You can buy 10 lottery tickets, make five dollars off one, buy five more and lose it all, and the reptilian part of the mind will feel like it is getting somewhere.
But how much money have your really made, THIS YEAR all together?
Hey/// What about this, affiliate– What about picking just one product to sell online, and giving it everything you’ve got…all of the time you spend on affiliate launches, all of the money you spend on Google adwords, and all of the massive head banging stress of trying to dominate the search engines, what if all of that time and energy was focused on ONE THING and one thing only?
