The 5 Excuses That Keep Marketers Broke

The 5 Excuses That Keep Marketers Broke

They say that you can make either excuses or results but not both, most marketers who are not making any money they have a list of excuses, and these are 5 excuses that keep marketers broke.

Need help forming habits? Believe it or not, there are people everywhere that are breaking away and making new patterns in their lives every single day.

For as many people that seem stuck on the treadmill of wild promises, brief struggles, and regression to the mean…

People who have “been” stuck are getting unstuck and experiencing fabulous results. That’s usually because they’re breaking free of excuses like these:

I Don’t Have The Time

If you don’t have time, build a plan that lets you leverage your money. Then squeeze in ten minutes per day. No matter how strictly regimented your time is, you can afford to give five or ten minutes to your work.

It’s amazing how much progress you can make if you devote ten uninterrupted minutes to something. When you aren’t Facebooking, Tweeting, checking email or talking to someone else, you can get in a zone of uninterrupted productivity.

I Don’t Have The Money

Again, build a plan that leverages your free time. Write articles. Comment on blogs, create products, make contacts. For most marketers, connections are the most valuable thing that they have, and this can be done without money. All it takes is persistence and the ability to set a positive habit.

At every stage of our lives, there’s a tradeoff between financial resources and time resources. The best people make the most of whatever situation they are in.

I Don’t Have All The Knowledge And Skills

Look for plans that don’t require a big list of technical skills. There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Almost anyone can set up an account on Twitter, or make a video for YouTube.

Find people who fit in your “blind spot,” people with skills and knowledge that compliment yours. Reach out to them and work on a project together. By pooling your resources, you cut down on the piles and piles of work that’s needed to get any project off of the ground.

Just get started, that’s the most important thing.

My Family Doesn’t Support Me

That’s very tough. One of the things you can you do is rev them up in stages. Sell your friends and family in the same way you’d sell something to someone else.

Start with the emotional stuff – tell them how it feels when you haven’t reached your goal (whatever that goal might be). Make sure that they’re on board with the idea that something is amiss and needs to change.

Then start discussing the causes of that problem, and how your solution will solve it. Chances are that somewhere along the line, there will be some objections – and you shouldn’t brush those aside, because they’re from people that know you and have lived with you.

But you’ve got to figure out what those objections are and address them, and dialogue is the only real way to do that.

If none of this works, you might have to put their concerns to the side and start educating them along the way. Nothing works to assuage people’s concerns than seeing you make small successes, so start by focusing on the fundamentals and improving your ability to see things through to completion.

It’s Just Too Hard

Here is a scary technique that will help you see how easy your current situation is. Imagine if things got worse. If you lost your internet access if your kids got sick if you lost your job or got stuck in a job that requires too much work for not enough money. Imagine if your eyes stopped working as well, or you got carpal tunnel syndrome.

Wouldn’t you be grateful for the opportunities that you have right now? Wouldn’t you look back and wished that you had the chance to focus, to give everything you have in preparation for future disaster?

Apply that intensity and that focus right now.

Final words

That is it, those are 5 excuses that keep marketers broke, stop making excuses and start producing results, if do you want my help on how to make money online feel free to contact me via the contact form below, or just leave a comment below and I will get back to you.

Best Affiliate Marketing Forums

Best Affiliate Marketing Forums

 

I am a big fan of forums I think in forums I can learn a lot and also I can use them to drive traffic to my blog or squeeze pages. In this post, I am going to give you a list of best affiliate marketing forums and how I think about them.

What is a forum?

In very simple words a forum is a place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.

So an affiliate marketing forum is a place where a bunch of people meets and discuss a lot of things related to affiliate marketing and making money online topics in general.

Are forums still relevant?

There are some gurus out there saying that forums are dead, this is not true, as an online entrepreneur you will need to have a place where you can learn things, you can share your ideas with other people and forums are great for that.

Why you should join a forum?

If you’re like me there is a chance that most people around you are not entrepreneurs and becoming an online entrepreneur can become very lonely, you don’t have anyone who understands what you are talking about.

Joining a forum can be a good way to combat that as you will meet with a like-minded people who are on the same journey as you are.

You can use forums to learn things that are happening in the industry, you can use forums to show your expertise and gain trust in the market place also you can use them to drive a massive amount of traffic to your online platforms like blogs, squeeze pages, YouTube channels and social media.

How many forums I should join.

I am a member of three forums, in fact I tried a lot of the forums I am going to mention below but because I have a limited amount of time in a day and there are many other things to do I decided to stay active in just three of them and I don’t post content on them every day. So for me, I think you should pick one or two forums and become a very active member.

After saying that let us dive in and see what are the best affiliate marketing forums.

Warrior Forum

warrior forum

For me, Warrior Forum is the best digital marketing forum, it is a powerful, interactive, and very useful forum for the affiliates who want to make money online. It’s also a marketplace, as well.

If you have to join only one forum this should be it. It covers all topics related to internet marketing from SEO to affiliate, social, blogging and much more.

It’s an active forum for all serious affiliates and marketing experts with threads on all sorts of effective web marketing, networking and sales of product and service, and much more.

It offers an interactive platform for discussion on affiliate marketing. You can learn new trends in affiliate marketing and can share your experiences with other fellow members.

Members go on to discuss online money making topics. You can get guidance from industry veterans. Beginners in affiliate marketing can learn effective affiliate marketing techniques.

It is free to join Warrior Forum but they have an upgraded membership that they call warrior room and there you will find one of the best content in affiliate marketing.

Affilorama

affilorama forum

I am a huge admirer of everything on Affilorama, for it is a must-have resource for all new online entrepreneurs.

The best advice I can give a new affiliate marketer is that go to Affilorama claim their free tools and affiliate marketing lessons, then become active to their forum, these guys they have everything you need to succeed online.

In this forum, you will find discussions about affiliate marketing, build money making websites, SEO, article marketing etc.

affLIFT

best affiliate marketing forums

affLIFT is a premium forum, you have to pay to be a member, but their price is very affordable, it offers more value for your price.

I am an active member of this forum, so for sure I can tell you that their content is very up to date and valuable, if you’re teachable and you can take action, this is the place you should be but if you don’t want to learn and take action probably you should first concentrate in free forums because you will be wasting your money.

They focus mainly on affiliate marketing and CPA offers, they teach push notifications, PPC, Facebook marketing and other affiliate marketing related topics.

With affLIFT, you can race ahead and profit from your affiliate marketing efforts. It’s a useful platform for the beginners as well as the professionals who are already making money with affiliate marketing.

affLIFT has much useful information. It has helpful and friendly members of its community.

 

AffiliateFix

affiliate fix

This is one of the most popular affiliate marketing forums, I joined it when I just started although I don’t go there anymore I still think it is a great forum simply because it is free and has a very active community.

If you’re new to affiliate marketing this can be a great place to start because their focus is changing newbie affiliate marketers into experts in their respective areas.

Digital Point

digital point

Digital Point is one of the oldest affiliate marketing forums. It’s a huge international forum where affiliate marketers from different parts of the world gather to discuss ideas and put up things for sales like domains websites, graphics, articles, eBooks, and templates.

It is one of the best places for discussion on affiliate marketing. They cover different affiliate marketing related subjects such as search engine, design & development, business & marketing, development & trade. You can even buy and sell digital products on the Digital Point Marketplace.

Wealthy Affiliate

WA

Wealthy Affiliate is one of the biggest affiliate marketing communities online, when I was just starting online I joined them.

When it comes to creating review blogs and ranking them on search engines I think they’re the best.

They give you a powerful keyword tool and a web hosting, they offer a free trial for their premium service and they have great support.

If do you want to learn about creating affiliate blogs and raking them in order to get free traffic, this is the best place to start.

Why I canceled my WA membership

I had two problems with them and that is why I decided to cancel my membership with them, the first problem is that you get all those things I mentioned above only if you’re a premium member (it is not a bad thing) but they market them as if you will get those even if you’re a free member (it is misleading and I didn’t like it).

The second problem I had with them is that they teach a badmouth marketing, basically they teach their affiliate to call everything online a scam, if you don’t believe me just google any program and add a word scam to it you will find out most of the sites in the first page are from people who promote Wealth Affiliate (which indicates their strong knowledge in ranking websites) and all they will do is to write bad things about another program, call it a scam and recommend Wealth Affiliate.

Yes, I know that many of the training a not worth but I am a firm believer of that talking bad about another person or program is not a great way to promote yourself or your products.

After saying that I must say that WA is a great community and they have some great training for premium members if you don’t mind negative promotion tactics you should join them. Just don’t fall for their free membership.

You can sign up as a free member of Wealthy Affiliate (I don’t recommend if do you want to check them out better get a premium membership free trial). However, there’s also the opportunity for paid subscribers that is best for its growing community.

Forum topics range from SEO, Video Marketing, PPC, WordPress, Affiliate Programs, and more.

.

Blackhatworld

BlackHatWorld

This is also a huge affiliate marketing community, there are a lot of affiliate marketers who use black hat methods to make money online (hence the name).

These people think outside the box, inside this forum you will find anything from how to rank your blog in google using black hat methods, adult niche, and all things that people do on affiliate marketing but they don’t talk about them in public, you can even find links to download some of the paid courses for free.

If do you want to check them out, go and check them out, but I won’t recommend them as your long term solution because most of the methods you will learn from this forum can help you to make a quick buck but they can hurt you and your business in a long run.

Sitepoint

SitePoint is one of the best affiliate marketing forums, it is one of the most favorite affiliate marketing forums for affiliates and merchants.

In this forum, you will find a variety of topics from online marketing, affiliate marketing, various designs, and programming. It’s a great solution area for the affiliates to harvest results through effective networking.

Final words

There are a lot of affiliate marketing forums free and paid ones, I tried most of them and I can say they have similar attributes to the one I posted above, if you think I have been unfair and there are other best affiliate marketing forums than those I posted let me know in the comment section below.

How to Find an Affiliate Marketing Niche

One of the most challenging decisions that you’ll have to make when you want to start an affiliate marketing business is deciding which niche you are going to work in.

To select a viable niche for your business, you’re going to have to do your due diligence and conduct research. If you are struggling to make a decision, here are five steps you can take to help you find your affiliate marketing niche.

How to Find an Affiliate Marketing Niche

Determine Your Interests and Passions

Create a list of your top ten passion areas and topical interests. Starting an online business is challenging and more than likely it’s going to test you early on. If you are a first-time business owner, it is essential for you to work in an area that you care about so you don’t lose motivation when you face your first challenges.

Determine Target Customer’s Problems

Once you’ve decided on your top ten interests and passions, you can start narrowing down your choices. Start by determining the challenges and problems that the target customers in the niche are experiencing. Once you know what problems they are facing, you can figure out if you can come up with a product or service to help solve those problems.

Research and Study the Competition

The presence of healthy competition can show you that you’ve found a profitable niche. However, it is essential that you thoroughly analyze the competitions’ websites. You need to see if there is an opportunity for you to stand out from the crowd.

Determine the Potential Profitability

After following the previous three steps, you should have a good idea of what niche market you are going to enter. Now you need to get an idea of how much money you can potentially make in your chosen market. A great place to start your search is ClickBank (https://clickbank.com).

Start by browsing the top products in your niche then make a note of the price points of the products. If you don’t find many offers, it’s not a good sign, and you should consider a different niche.

Take Action

While there isn’t a perfect process for finding an affiliate niche market that is profitable, these steps will help you get on the right path. Once you’ve confirmed the viability and profitability of your chosen niche market, you can start developing your website and creating content.

Anyone can create a successful, long-term online business from scratch. You need to do the research and hard work that is required to get started.

 

6 step process to make more money on your business

6 step process to make more money on your business

It is a known fact that more than 90% of people who try to make money online fails, there are more reasons for that, in this post, I am going to discuss 6 step process to make more money on your business.

Today I want to talk to you So let’s talk about the solution to go from not making money to making the type of money YOU want. The key to making money or doing anything you want to achieve is focusing on simplicity.

Step 1: Decide what it is you actually want.

Most people see how much money I make online so they say “I want to make that much too”.This isn’t realistic and that’s why you’re not making money.

Decide right now how much do you need to live a good life for you? Comparing yourself to me or anyone else is setting you back. Focus on your needs. Once you know how much you want to make, move on to step two.

Step 2: Figure out what you will promote.

Let’s face it, no money is made without selling something. You need to choose a product that will really help your prospects, don’t just promote a product because it will make you the most money.

Also, keep in mind that you must use the product yourself before you recommend it to anyone else, for me personally I will never recommend a product I will never use myself.

You can promote the tools you use on your business, products that helped you to solve a certain problem, if you’re in make money online niche and you have no idea what to promote, you can click here and get my free training series in which I reveal the best affiliate program you can promote.

Step 3: Make a daily plan.

You shouldn’t be doing much in your business. I know this may go against what you think, but I don’t do as much as you may think. I do the same things daily.

Bruce Lee says “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks. I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times”.I live and die by this principle.

Figure out what traffic source you will focus on, what offer you will promote, how many
leads you need to generate daily and how many sales you need to make daily to reach your goal.

Two sales a day with this program will easily net you a 20k + a month income. Focus on just a few things daily and get so damn good at them no one can compete.

First, you will see a little traffic, then it gets bigger and bigger doing that traffic source daily. First, you will have one sale here and there then it becomes daily. When you do the money making activities daily it compounds fast and things kick into overdrive.

Step 4: Take daily action on your plan.

This may sound silly, but just starting a new business isn’t going to do a thing for you. Set your plan and work your plan daily. It doesn’t take long if you follow your plan!

Step 5: Measure your progress.

Do things for at least 30 days before changing anything. Success is about habits, not about a secret system or method.

Do things for 30 days, reflect if what you’re doing is working. Figure out what’s working and do more of it, tweak what isn’t working to get better results.

When you build on your daily habits your income compounds fast. This is also why I work a few hours a day now and get focused work done and get big results while other people can work endlessly and barely move the needle.

Step 6: Have faith in yourself!

Most people don’t start their business or do the things they know they need to do because of a lack of belief. They do something for 3 or 4 days and then quit and say it’s not working.

It’s not the business that doesn’t work, it’s the person. If other people are getting results in a business and you’re not it’s because they’re doing what needs to be done and working their plan.

If even ten people are making lot’s of money in something that’s all the proof I need to go in and dominate and get my piece of the pie.

I don’t care about the broke mediocre people who make excuses and don’t get results. I look at how much money people are making in business and tell myself if they’re doing it” so can I”.

Making money is all your belief system. When you believe it’s possible for you then you will stop making excuses and put in the work. If you don’t believe it’s possible for you then you need to stop right now and ask yourself.

Final words.

So that is it, those are 6 step process to make more money on your business, if you don’t know where to start your online journey or you started already but going nowhere, i will like to invite you to take this free training series that will teach you all the steps that I talked about and also I will give you the system I am using to make money online selling other people products. click the following link for the access. https://sekidotcom.com

 

How to Avoid Shiny Object Syndrome

One of the reasons why most people fail in affiliate marketing and in any type of business is this disease called shiny object syndrome, it is a disease that affects all entrepreneurs and it can be a dream killer, before going on how to avoid it let us look what it is.

What is Shine Object Syndrome?

shiny object syndrome or SOS is defined as the attraction to objects that exhibit a glassy, polished, gleaming or otherwise shiny appearance. Something as simple as a reflection in your peripheral vision may easily distract your attention.

How to Avoid Shiny Object Syndrome

 

In affiliate marketing world it means that the attraction of new buzzwords, trends, channels, products, and new system, you know, today there is a product launch, you jump in it and before you start promoting it, there is another product launch that seems better and you’re on it as well, this cycle can go on for years and most people end up quitting because none of these programs will work for them.

Affiliate marketing is all about using current technology and trends to create a plan and outsmart the competition online. It takes lots of research and paying attention to what today’s audience is looking for in a particular niche to decide what goes into a strategy.

Unfortunately, many marketers fall for “shiny object syndrome.” This means that they are attracted to new buzzwords, trends, and channels and feel that they must use them on their target audience. Here are some things to think about before adding these new concepts to your marketing plan.

How to avoid shiny object syndrome

Concentrate on your audience

While “shiny object syndrome” can be fun, exciting, and unexpected, the problem lies with the fact that the marketers that jump at a chance to use them don’t take time to see if these are things that the target audience is really interested in.

Just the fact that they are new and “shiny” means that they are “hot” and should be used to blow away both the audience and their competitors. This can backfire on the marketer if it’s not interesting to the audience, or worse yet, it prevents them from getting the valuable information that they need.

Readers will leave sites in a heartbeat if they can’t get the information that they need, no matter how “hip” the marketing is.

Focus on your current business plan

Consider your current business strategy before trying new concepts. Think about the problems that you are trying to solve, how you reach your customers, the number of visitors that use your information, your resources, and whether you are considered an expert.

If these new concepts do not fit within each one of the goals that you have for these considerations, the chance of having your marketing plan, and ultimately your audience, turn against you. On the flip side, if you don’t completely understand these considerations beforehand, the chances of the new concepts being added to your plan will most likely fail.

Do not use tools just because they are new

Do not use new tools just to use new tools. For example, just because a new social media site comes out does not mean that you have to jump on it right away.

It may not even be appropriate for your target niche and when it comes to marketing, your time is precious. Don’t waste time on items that won’t help your business. Before you start adding anything new to your plan, you must make sure your current plan is already succeeding. Adding something new without understanding why your current one is failing will most likely still result in failure.

Be sure everything is in place for success before you start adding and shuffling things around in your marketing plan. Be sure that whatever methods you decide to use are also appropriate for targeting your particular audience. For instance, you are targeting women of a certain age, make sure that whatever is in your strategy is appropriate for that audience.

Final words

Those are three tips on how to avoid the shiny object syndrome, create a marketing plan and stick to it, as an online entrepreneur is of utmost importance to not fall for “shiny object syndrome.” You are more than allowed to use new things in your strategy, but you must consider your current one, what you are trying to achieve with your plan overall, and if what you want to add or change is appropriate to your audience.

Solid Principles For Affiliate Marketing

 

Solid-Principles-For-Affiliate-Marketing

It is no secret that affiliate marketing can be a pathway to great success in the business world these days. Times have changed, and traditional marketing methods are quickly becoming obsolete.

Getting onboard with affiliate marketing means understanding the foundational principles that make it work. Read some ideas here about how to build solid principles for affiliate marketing, one that you can build upon to reach your goals.

Content is the king

You have heard it said many times: content is king. This is particularly true on the Internet, where millions of websites compete for attention. Everyone has a message that they want to get out there, so the “information highway” is inundated with content.

In order for yours to rise above the fray and grab the attention of potential customers, it has to have substance. Just throwing out some words with SEO content is not enough anymore.

Know your target audience

Know who your audience is and target your website specifically to meet their needs. Understand how they think and what they are wanting from you. If you do not identify this and provide the content that reaches out to them, they will just get it from your competitors.

Put yourself in their shoes and think like they would think when searching for what you have to offer. Use specific words and phrases that indicate you have a working knowledge of the field you represent. If you come across as merely a salesperson without a tie to the product, you could lose out to someone that they feel more comfortable with.

Be honest

Be honest with those you do business with. Do not hide any affiliations, because it will eventually come out, and you will have lost a measure of trust. Transparency is always valued, even if it leads to the loss of sale occasionally.

You want to develop a reputation for being a forthright and dependable person who answers questions directly. If you have affiliations that are questionable and you do not want to disclose them, this is a reason to reconsider your tie to that organization.

If you absolutely have to continue being affiliated with them, then disclose it along with a statement of support or explanation of any questionable activities.

Only promote high-quality products

Be very careful about which products you choose to promote. Remember that your reputation is more than a quick sale or two. You are in this for the long run, so choose products that you actually believe in and ones that you are using yourself. A good rule of thumb is to ask whether you would give one to your mother or your brother. If the answer is no, then explore other options.

Final words

That is it, those are solid principles for affiliate marketing, these principles are ones that may cause you to develop more slowly in your affiliating marketing business, but they will also ensure that you have longevity. Incorporate them into your business planning today.

Clickbank Gravity Vs Popularity…which one do you go for?

Clickbank Gravity Vs Popularity...which one do you go for?

Are you curious to know the difference between Clickbank gravity vs. popularity? Clickbank what does gravity mean in the first place?

I know this sounds newbie’s question, but many people even experienced marketers forget or confuse the difference between Gravity and Popularity in ClickBank, in this post, I am going to go through the difference between Clickbank gravity and popularity and which one you should follow when it comes to picking a Clickbank offer to promote.

What is Clickbank Gravity?

The Definition of ClickBank Gravity

According to the information on the ClickBank website:

Gravity: Number of distinct affiliates who earned a commission by promoting the vendor’s products during the past 12 weeks. This is not an actual number of affiliates. For each affiliate an amount between 0.1 and 1.0 is added to the result, depending on when his/her last transaction occurred. More recent transactions are given a higher value.

The gravity amount of a product is meant to serve as an indication of the number of affiliates who are currently making sales of the product. When the gravity amount is higher, it means that there are more affiliates who earn commissions from that specific product at a given moment.

Clickbank popularity

The Definition of Clickbank Popularity

Clickbank popularity is determined by a vendor’s net sales over a recent time frame and also rewards vendors who have many affiliates promoting them.

While gravity takes into account only affiliates who made at least one sale in the period of 12 weeks or so, popularity takes on account the number of sales generated, the number of affiliates who tried to promote it but didn’t make any sale, as its name suggests it shows how the product is popular and remember popular does not mean it is better.

ClickBank Gravity Vs Popularity…which one do you go for while choosing Clickbank product?

This is my take on this. gravity is an important factor while choosing a Clickbank product for promoting rather than popularity.

In my experience in this affiliate marketing, I have found that most people search the Marketplace using the default “Sort by” option, which sorts all products by using popularity.

While popularity is a useful measure of a product’s earning potential for you as the affiliate, there are many advantages to using the other “Sort by” options available in the Marketplace as well, like gravity, earning per sale, etc.

Popularity could also have to do with how many affiliates have created hoplinks for this product but it’s not always a good recommendation to follow – stick with looking at products that have a gravity of between 6 and 40, especially if you’re new. The gravity is more of a reliable indicator that the product is actually selling! And that’s what counts.

Final words

Now we have seen the difference between Clickbank gravity vs. popularity, my recommendation is to go with gravity when it comes to choosing the best Clickbank product to promote as an affiliate, but gravity only will not decide which product to chose, you need to consider other elements like, how much money you will make per sale, commission percentage, refund rates, sales page/video among the other.

Affiliate Marketing 101 – The Basics

 

Affiliate-Marketing-101-–-The-Basics

Do you have a desire to start your online business, and all you want is to start making money online, but things don’t seem to be working for you. There is a reason for that, probably there are some little things you skipped or not doing them.

It takes some basic things to be successful at affiliate marketing:

Change the way you think about money.

Before you start an affiliate marketing business or can even contemplate picking an affiliate program to join, you will need to make some basic changes in your thinking.

You’ve got to really change the way you view money and you want to begin to feel like you deserve to be wealthy. While this concept seems simple, many people don’t feel like they deserve money.

As a result, their activities reflect their feelings of lack of worthiness. Instead of coming home from work and hitting the computer, reading an ebook, watching a training video, taking action on a plan, they will instead come home, sit in front of the television and time will pass.

People who feel like they should be able to make lots of money online will naturally make a lot of money online. This is not some spiritual or some motivational talk, although I feel that spirituality is a part of everyone’s journey. However, that is not what I’m talking about when I say people can make lots of money.

The most important thing to remember is that if you feel like you deserve lots of money, you will take the actions to make it happen.

Stay focused

When you are new at affiliate marketing it is easy to get distracted and lose focus, I was guilty of this, you know, I was involved in 6 different niches, I was doing 10 different traffic strategies, I was promoting everything that could make me money and followed everyone.

Guess what, I was making zero money online, in order to make money online by using the power of affiliate marketing you need to focus on one niche, one product, and  one traffic method, you need to focus on those until you become an expert on your niche and making enough money then you can start thinking about expanding to another niche or traffic method.

Pick a niche product to start with and then START

As I said above, you will need to pick one niche product and then start, all you need to succeed online is starting with your main product.

The simple way to find the product you need to start with is to ask yourself this question ‘what is one product that my audience can’t survive without ?’ The answer to this question will give you the ideal product for your audience.

For example, if you’re teaching your audience how to start an affiliate marketing business, probably the answer can be a landing page builder and the product is Clickfunnels.

If you’re teaching your audience, how to build an authority blog that makes them 6 figures, the answer could be a reliable web hosting and this could be WpxHosting.

If you’re teaching your audience on how to lose weight, the answer could be changing their diet and the product could be a diet program like Jane Craig Diet Program.

You can use the examples above to find your main product, then you could promote what I call auxiliary products, those are products that compliment your main product, those could be an autoresponder, a domain name, coaching, etc for those who have an audience who is interested in affiliate marketing.

Find a mentor and then take action.

Most people you will meet on your online business journey they don’t make any money and then they will pretend to want to teach you how to do it, you need to avoid these people.

You need to find one mentor who had achieved things do you want to achieve and then take action, do everything they tell you to do and you will be successful.

For me, my views on affiliate marketing and life, in general, changed completely when I met my mentor, it is very important that you find a mentor for yourself.

This is the guy who is helping me to rebuild my online business, all you have to do is to join Clickfunnel via this link and when you join send me an email via the contact form below, I will send you access to his training and his private coaching group.

Make a schedule and then stick to it.

This is what my mentor taught me, you need to make a schedule and then stick to it, if do you have a 9-5 job, you can do this too, all you need is at least two hours per day each and every day, after arriving home from your day job, you can take time for your family, your significant other and then dedicate two hours for your affiliate marketing business.

If you can’t find time to do this after work hours or maybe you arrive home very tired, you can try to do it early in the morning before going to work, just try to wake up earlier than normal.

Start small and apply what you learn as you go.

Avoid being overwhelmed out of the gate. You want to learn, apply it on a small level and then scale up when you feel you have the basics under control.

While you are doing this, you will start to make money. By staying focused, I mean avoid the multi-tab distractions. You can open a ton of websites in browsers nowadays.

If your plan calls for answering email between a certain time and certain time, avoid reading emails before that time. Tell yourself, it will still be sitting there waiting for you at.

Best Affiliate Marketing Tools

Best Affiliate Marketing Tools

Before you can begin building anything in life, you need tools. And the same is true if you’re building your affiliate marketing career.

In this post, I will get you set up with all the best affiliate marketing tools you need to get started.

The important thing to remember here is that these are tools that you will need when you’re just starting out, maybe when your business grows you might need more tools but for now with these tools, you will be fine.

Domain name

You will need at least one domain name to run your affiliate marketing business and my highest recommendation will be Namecheap as they are the best domain registrar on the web.

https://www.namecheap.com

Hosting:

When it comes to hosting there are a lot of opinions online, I tried and tested most of the major web hosting companies, for me WPXhosting is the best web hosting company,they offer you free SSL certificate for all of your website,they will move your websites from any hosting company to their’s for free, if you have a problem on your website they will fix it for free, they respond to your inquiries in less than 5 seconds, I can’t recommend them more.

But I know that if you’re just starting out it can be a little bit expensive (it is $24.95 per month), so my second recommendation is Siteground as you can pay just $71 for the whole year and host more websites.

2) http://www.siteground.com

Page builder

To run a successive online business as an affiliate, you will need to build some special pages, these can be landing/squeeze pages, pre-sales pages, and funnels, and the best software to do that is Clickfunnels.

Autoresponder:

Every person who is making money online has one thing in common an email list. As an affiliate marketer, you will need to collect some data from your prospects especially their email and then send them some emails with tips and recommendations of affiliate products and the software that can help you to do all that is called autoresponder.

If you’re just starting out, my recommendation will be that you start with Aweber, but if you want a superior autoresponder with modern features, Convertkit is the winner.

So my autoresponder recommendations will be

1) https//:aweber.com

2) https://convertkit.com

So that is it, those are in my opinion the best affiliate marketing tools you can use to start and grow your online business.

Thank you for reading, if do you think there are better tools than those I listed, let me know in the comment section below.
