Stop Affiliate Marketing Right Now

Since the mid 90’s everyone and their mother has been trying to devise different ways to make money online.  The problem most people face though is that they spend too much time reading about what other people are doing, and not enough time implementing different methods themselves.

There are many misconceptions about affiliate marketing and making money from home on the Internet, and if you currently believe any of the statements I’ve listed below – you better stop now while you’re ahead because you will be wasting your time and money.

You can make money in affiliate marketing without any work.

This is one of, if not the biggest mistakes most newbie affiliates make when getting into the game.  They expect to press some magic button, go to bed and wake up with 1000’s of dollars in their back account.  They are told that making money as an affiliate is so easy that a 5 year old can do it.  These are lies.  Affiliate marketing, like any other industry, requires blood, sweat and tears to make it work.  You have to study the market, make mistakes and know when to walk away.

You don’t need money to be a successful affiliate marketer

Again, a total misconception.  No wonder why so many people go nowhere with affiliate marketing!  Sure, you can most definitely start off in affiliate marketing with zero investment – after all, there are so many free blog services out there such as Blogspot and WordPress, but eventually you will need to step your game up and invest in various tools, services, resources as well as possible outsourcing if you plan to make your business “hands-off”.

With affiliate marketing, you will be able to quit your job in 3 months

Now I’m not saying it is impossible to quit your job within three months of starting affiliate marketing, but in actuality, unless you have a lot of money, time and connections to help you skip many of the common speed bumps, there is no way you’re going to crack the system and quit your job in 3 months.  Affiliate marketing requires daily dedication.  It requires your time, money and care to help it grow.  Your building a business, not quitting a job.

Marketing Affiliate Products With Blogspot

How can you top Google and get free traffic to your affiliate offers?  Great question, and luckily for you and I Google owns and operates one of the largest free blog networks on the Internet:  Blogger aka Blogspot.  Because these free blogs are owned by Google, they have a tendency to carry a lot of link juice and generate great traffic.

In reality, there are endless ways to promote your latest affiliate venture, some are paid and some are free.  It’s no secret that when you’re first starting out with affiliate marketing you are going to try and use as many free resources available.  As you start making money, you will cycle those funds back into your business for various expenses like web hosting, domain names and PPC advertising.

This is where using Blogger blogs can help you make money online.

You can set up a free blogspot blog to promote the product itself, or you can use the blogspot blog to funnel traffic to your main website.  Regardless, you will find Google has made this service extremely user friendly and you can have a blog set up in a matter of minutes.

If you’re using a blogspot blog to direct traffic to you main page, there are some important points you want to consider.  First, be sure that the content you put on this blog is unique, targeted and easy to read.  Use your main keyword in the blogspot address, for example, http://dogcareguide.blogspot.com.  Also use the keyword in the title of your articles, category names and for the links within the article content.

This will help you rank very well for your selected keywords in the major search engines, as well as leave no questions unanswered with regards to what your blog is about, the product or service you are promoting and what they need to do next in order to purchase or find out more information.
