This article on Internet marketing help is on the subject of affiliate marketing. Did you know it is possible to make a very good living as an “affiliate marketer”? However a word of warning, of the thousands of people who decide to try Affiliate Marketing in a year only a very few percentage of people will succeed. I don’t believe this is because there is something wrong with affiliate marketing, being too competitive or too hard. It is down to the inability to commit and be tenacious in this field.
Why is this so? I believe there are so many promises made on the internet in the form of sales letters that a number of people believe they will get instant success, and when they don’t they just give in.
This really is crazy when you think that professional sportsmen like snooker players, golfers, tennis players et al all spend hours every day practising and honing their talent, and we all now what happens to those of them who metaphorically speaking “fall of the wagon” So remember if you want to earn a living by this method you need to be dedicated and persistent.
This is why you need to have a system that has been proven to work and follow it, and if at first you don’t succeed try, try again. As you would in the offline world, where you would be either taught by some one else (the mentor method), or learn by trial and error you have the same techniques for the on line world.
You must pick your system and then stick with it through “thick and thin”. Not surprisingly I would recommend finding a mentor because this will save you hours and hours of frustration, however choosing a mentor must be done with the same care as you would use in buying a new car.
Remember like the professional sportsman you will not succeed if you do not put in the time and effort, also you “will not sell if you do not tell”. You have to put aside the time for your learning, marketing and sales.
Time is a perishable commodity and you have to decide how you are going to spend it to make a success as an affiliate marketer, can you give up some TV time? Can you get up earlier? Can you give up playing games on the X box or doing Sudoku, crosswords etc.?
Internet marketing help is absolutely convinced if you are committed and tenacious, there is absolutely no reason why you should not be able to earn a substantial sum of money in affiliate marketing. You can live your dream but you must keep in mind, as usual in life “Efforts in equals rewards out”. How long to success, the big question. You will not get there in a few weeks but probably three or four months, and provided you have chosen your mentor wisely you can probably improve on that.
