Can I do Affiliate Marketing?
Really Great Question!
Affiliate Marketing is not going to be for everyone. Why do I say this? Because I feel honesty is the best policy when it comes to discussing ones financial future.
Getting involved with affiliate marketing is time-consuming people with no patience will quit or give up in a short period of time.
What people are looking for is instant gratification in all areas of life, unfortunately, this is one that will take time and patience to accomplish.
Small goals are one of the keys to becoming successful with affiliate marketing. Setting big goals or thinking that you should be earning money in a very short period of time is just unrealistic.
Basing your affiliate marketing business on money goals is not the way to go either. Now that sounds really funny to you I am sure but to become successful that should never be your actual goal.
Why? When you are setting goals you need short term and long term goals. That being said we will start with the short term goals below.
Affiliate Marketing and Goals Short Term
Short term goals are needed to keep you focused on the tasks at hand in order to keep motivated prior to reaching the long term goals that you are going to set.
What type of short term goals are we talking about? If you are serious about affiliate marketing then you are going to require the proper training. Without someone to guide you then you are lost in this big internet world.
Getting into affiliate marketing takes training just like you are going to a special trade school. Do you need special skills to start? No, absolutely not that is the great thing about this training I have found.
I am not going to lie I spent years online looking for a way to make money looking for the perfect training or program that would show me the way. Gurus and scam artists are out there so you must be cautious when looking for training.
Found the right place finally after years of searching! Wealthy Affiliate (WA for short) offers all the training required to become an affiliate marketing specialist online.
“Never heard of them,” you say well I will tell you just a short description of them – WA has been online since 2005 and is run by two very nice gentlemen out of Canada.
WA is offered worldwide with the exception of a few countries known for fraud.
Training begins with teaching you what building a successful business online is all about and exactly each and every step of how to do this and why.
“Do I need a website for Affiliate Marketing?” Yes, this is how you are going to promote your ideas, programs, services, and products to the world. How else are they going to find you without a website?
“What else can they teach you?” WA not only teaches you how to build the website but gives you two free websites when you join for FREE.
You never have to give up your free membership they will host your two free websites on the internet for you as long as you remain active within the community.
“What else can I learn through WA?” How to apply to become an affiliate for companies, promotion of your website, how to get or increase traffic for your website, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), freelance writing, how to earn a living online, and much more.
But I do not know how to build a website? Below you will find some information on websites and I do have more in the website here for your viewing and reading pleasure.
How to Build A Website
Please take the time to watch the video below if you wish, Kyle does a complete demo of setting up a WordPress website.
Once you have all the necessary tools and know what you are supposed to do then website building is easy and can be done in a matter of minutes from start until never finished 🙂
You are now thinking “Those big companies do not have this problem, Why?” True because they pay large amounts of money to Google remaining on the first page in the first position. People tend to look for big-name companies to be first as well.
Let me ask you “Where is the first place you go to find the information you are looking for?” 99% will say the internet and the other 1% will look to friends and family who in turn look on the internet for them.
Research shows that by the year 2020 the affiliate marketing industry will be close to $6.8 billion for people working online all big companies have an affiliate program.
Without a website owned by yourself you are not going anywhere online, it is like owning your own piece of property where your house is built.
Long Term Goals
The short term goals that you will set will be to build the website – maximize SEO – gain traffic from organic traffic – adding the affiliate links – getting approvals from the affiliate programs, and many more.
Long term goals will be where you would like to set the amount of money you would like to see start rolling in. Please be realistic at first thinking that you are going to be making over $5,000. in a month is just not being truthful to yourself.
For honest opinions what you need to realize is the amount of competition that you are going into. Wealthy Affiliate will teach you how to figure all this out on your own.
Knowing how long it is going to take for Google, Bing, and Yahoo to recognize you as a serious author on a website producing quality content is another fact to take into account.
Age of your domain must be taken into consideration. I like to think of this as a website needs to age like a fine bottle of wine. The longer it ages the better it gets!
Setting your long terms goals can be done in monetary ways but try to think small scale at first. An example would be you would like to make your first $1.00 in six months.
Yes, that is not much but it is more than you made to start, right? But the commission that hits after six months is $100.00 then think how you are going to feel!
Getting the idea between things you can control and the things you cannot control is the idea behind setting up goals that are attainable and achievable in time.
Experienced members inside WA will help you figure out how to set goals to reach them and keep you motivated and inspired to keep working.
