Make the Leap to Affiliate Marketing Success
Copyright Â© Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy
If you are going to become a successful affiliate on the
Internet, you need 3 “intangibles.” These are things that must
come from WITHIN you.
===> Intangible 1 <===
First, you must have a strong WHY.
Why must you make affiliate marketing work? What is driving you?
What is it that you CAN’T have in your life anymore and/or what
is it that you absolutely MUST HAVE now?
For me, I couldn’t stand working 12+ hours a day anymore and
missing the experience of my children growing up. I also
absolutely HAD TO HAVE the freedom of being able to control my
life and finances through a little box that I could carry with me
anywhere in the world and not be tied to anyone’s time pressures
or demands but my own. That was my carrot and my stick. I felt a
great pain deep in my gut of missing out on my children’s lives
and the incredible freedom that succeeding in this business would
provide for me. I found my why. You MUST find yours.
===> Intangible 2 <===
You must BELIEVE that it is possible.
If you don’t believe that it’s POSSIBLE for you to make money
with affiliate programs or make your living on the Internet, you
won’t. It’s that simple.
For me, figuring out that it was possible was just a matter of
realizing that many other people were ALREADY making great money
online. If they could do it, I could too. It would just be a
matter of figuring out what those people were doing and then
adapting it to my situation.
There is no shortage of undeniable PROOF that people (millions of
them) are making money online with affiliate programs. Just get
online and do some research and you’ll find countless
testimonials and stories of REAL PEOPLE making real money on the
Internet. Or head to your local bookstore and you’ll find the
same documented evidence of this fact. Truth is, it’s getting
easier and easier to make money online with affiliate programs.
I’ve always said that “affiliate marketing” is the job of the
future. In the “old” days, you had to go to a potential
employer, apply for the position and hope for the best. Now you
can simply go to any company you want, fill out their affiliate
application and start work immediately. Affiliates are the new
working class. Believe me, making money with affiliate programs
or making your living on the Internet is WAY MORE than possible.
It is pretty much (or will be soon enough) unavoidable now.
Affiliate marketing is the “job” of the future that’s already
===> Intangible 3 <===
You must be willing to MAKE THE LEAP.
Ready, FIRE, then aim… This is the operating philosophy you
MUST adopt to succeed with affiliate marketing.
That’s backwards for most people who like to aim before they
fire. The fact is the Internet is a moving target… The only
thing constant about it is change. You need to stop analyzing the
game and simply jump into it. You can’t learn from the
outside… You have to be IN THE RING to truly understand it.
The lesson here is that you will never really be READY to start
an affiliate marketing business. You simply have to start one.
This is what I call “Making the Leap.”
The good news is that the cost of failure on the Internet is very
small. In the “brick and mortar” world you need to evaluate
things very carefully before you decide to open up a business.
It’s almost always necessary to invest thousands of dollars to
get an offline business off the ground. However, on the Internet
you can often start a successful business for less than $100. The
Plug-In Profit Site is a great example of this:
You simply need get IN THE GAME… Each moment that you stay
“out there,” you’re wasting valuable time that you could be
learning and skills necessary to become a successful affiliate
marketer. In fact, if you’re not in the game yet, you’re
ALREADY behind the times. Make the leap to becoming a successful
affiliate marketer today!
