Is Affiliate Marketing Profitable?

Definitely! But, there are some caveats. 

Let’s go into a little more detail and explain what affiliate marketing is, the objectives, the attitude, the possible pitfalls, the strategies, and ways of making cash via affiliate advertising. You can create substantial earnings but only if you do it correctly.

An affiliate marketer is, in the most basic sense, an internet salesperson that works on commission. Still, there are twists to this, as you will discover as we go along, you have to have something of value provided by a merchant of some kind, which pays a commission for any sales that you make. If you’re very good at sticking to sales for these merchants, you can make serious money.

To do well with internet sales, you have to be good at giving people what they want. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an actual device, software program, service, or maybe informational device. You should help them in getting the answers they have to resolve their problem. For example, if someone needs office production software (like MS Word, Excel or PowerPoint), you don’t want to sell them design software (like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator). 

It’s your job as an affiliate marketer to help customer decide which type of product or service is best for them, then help them decide on which offer they should choose

The goal of Affiliate Marketing

Your goal isn’t so much to make money, your goal should be to help people make good decisions on what to buy.

Allow me to explain.

In case you overhype an inexpensive drill bit like the end all – be most of the drill bits and come up with the sale to a specialist that is dependent on that device to create their living.

Let’s say that you are hyping up an inexpensive drill bit as the end-all-be-all of drill bits and you manage to make a sale to a professional contractor.

You might get a little bit of buzz from that sale, but not the kind of buzz you would like since the product was cheap and ineffective. This would not be good.

But if your intent is helping them by providing them with the necessary info on various bits and what those bits can do and they decide to buy it – well, you just created another internet buzz, but this time it’s one of public trust, making you a lot more sales.

Some affiliate marketing websites come across as uncaring about their visitors and are only in it to make a sale. Of course, these websites don’t really last very long. This provides an opportunity for you to provide the best customer service possible. If you do this, you will have an army of loyal visitors who love your content and share it to all of the social media platforms that they use (like Facebook and Twitter).

If someone ever tells you that they don’t get recurring sales from their affiliate marketing website, then I would say that it’s a safe bet that they aren’t providing good customer service.

Mindset

You have to always keep in your mind that you’re there to help individuals. Always assume that there is more for you to learn about the niche you’re in. You have to keep up with trends and fluctuations in the market so as not to become irrelevant and obsolete.

Everything changes, especially when it comes to modern technology, and affiliate marketing is no different.

If you take these lessons to heart, you will be able to dominate just about any niche you go into and make the kind of money that people only dream about.

You have the ability to influence people on a personal level which includes the products and services that they purchase. With this power, you can create wealth for years to come.

Failure Points

Don’t forget who you are and where you came from. This happens a lot to affiliate marketers who start making a lot of money. They start branding themselves as a guru of sorts and lose sight of their original goal – which is to give customers what they need as opposed to what you want to sell them.

Also, don’t let all the money go to your head. Just because you CAN buy a $500k car doesn’t mean that you really need to.

Remember what you did to make your site successful in the first place. Don’t lose your original vision which is that of community. Nothing will sink your site faster than when customers feel like they aren’t a part of your community any more.

Products change… Demographics change… Even site designs change.

Make sure that you keep up with the times and keep your site as relevant as possible.
