Affiliate Marketing System Is Easy to Set Up and Manage

Don’t let anyone sell you in on a turnkey system that will let you “rake in the profits” without doing any hard work. An affiliate marketing program is a lot of work – from the set up to the actual operations, you’ll be putting in work required to earn the money. Sure, you can do it at home or anywhere you have access to the Internet, but don’t mistake telecommuting as a magic way to avoid actual work.

You Need to Find a Lucrative Niche In Order to Make Affiliate Marketing Work

This is one of the more pervasive myths out there, owing to the fact that it does sound logical – the word “lucrative” means exactly as it does in the dictionary, after all. It’s kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy, in the sense that many of the affiliate marketers who succeeded are ones who “found” a lucrative niche. However, belief in this myth can actually hamper novices. The thing with this myth is that it results in marketers adopting a “jump on the bandwagon” mentality. Once a lucrative niche is found, everybody jumps on it and it ends up getting saturated, hence no longer lucrative for most. It’s a self-defeating myth.

You Need to Get Your Product on As Many Sites as Possible

One of the pitfalls for marketers is the “volume mentality,” in which they think that success is dependent on them blasting as many product links out there in the hopes that random clicks and conversions will come and accumulate eventually. The main problem with this is that Quality still trumps Quantity when it comes to affiliate marketing. It doesn’t matter how many sites get your links up, if the traffic they’re getting won’t convert, you’re ending up with nothing but a bunch of links that Google might see as link farming links. This means your main site could actually get penalized, so no. Avoid the volume mentality.
