How to Make a Living With Affiliate Marketing: What Works and What Doesn’t Work? [Part 1 of 4]

 Rapid Affiliate Marketing Profits: You Can Avoid Failure and Boost Your Chances of Success

Most affiliate marketers are doomed to fail because they’re using INEFFECTIVE strategies to get free traffic. “FREE” marketing strategies are not really free. They can waste a lot of your time and they can end up COSTING you a lot of money in lost opportunities. They can delay your progress and even keep you from becoming successful. What can you do? You can learn how to avoid common marketing mistakes that lead to failure…

Struggling to get traffic, sales and profits?

You’re not alone!

Most affiliate marketers are working so hard… desperately trying to generate traffic, sales and profits. But, most are failing.

Here’s a dirty little secret…

Did you know that over 90% of marketers and other entrepreneurs make less than $100 a month online?

Why are so many entrepreneurs failing to make a living online?

Their marketing strategies rely too much on eventually getting free traffic to their sites using search engine optimization (SEO).

The harsh reality is that most blogs and sites will fail to get top ranking on Google and other search engines…. And when traffic never comes, their sales and profits never come. Without any income coming in, they end up giving up… disillusioned and demoralized.

Sadly, they didn’t realize until it was too late that their quest for free traffic using SEO-based marketing strategy was fatally flawed from the start… and it led their blogs, sites and their online businesses to a dead end.

What’s even more tragic?

These online entrepreneurs didn’t really have to fail. If only they had realized that there was a faster way to generate targeted traffic… whenever you want.

But, SEO is the most popular free-traffic-generation strategy for millions of bloggers and internet entrepreneurs. It’s hard to believe that it’s the most common cause of failure online, right?

What are they doing totally wrong?

Instead of focusing on marketing activities that can generate sales and profits quickly, struggling entrepreneurs spend most of their days creating content for their blogs and sites. This can involve spending hundreds or thousands of hours blogging, writing articles, creating videos and other content.

They’re hoping that creating lots of content will eventually lead to lots of free traffic from Google and other search engines. They’re hoping that their hard work will someday lead to lots of traffic… and hopefully, lots of sales.

This is a trap….

And this has led to the tragic death millions of promising blogs, sites and online businesses.

Relying on Google search engine ranking for traffic and sales is a scary proposition. Even if you’re lucky enough to get top ranking, you never know when Google is going to change its ranking algorithm. You never know when your traffic and sales will be yanked out from under you.

You’re always vulnerable to losing your traffic, sales, profits and income at any moment.

With every Google algorithm changes, millions of online entrepreneurs have lost their traffic and income overnight. After losing their only source of income, most of them didn’t have any choice but to quit their businesses.

What’s even worse?

Relying on search engine traffic is based on the false assumption that getting lots of traffic will somehow lead to getting lots of sales.

No, it actually doesn’t work that way…

Traffic doesn’t automatically turn to sales and profits. To accomplish that, you need to have effective marketing skills.

Marketing that effectively converts traffic into sales and profits is a FUNDAMENTAL skill for all entrepreneurs. Of all the skills you can have, your ability to market yourself, your blog, site and your business as well as your products and services will pay off more than any other.

If you have effective marketing skills, you can sell anything… and you can have a successful business. If not, any business you start is doomed to fail.

Why Take Months Or Years of Trial and Error Trying to Do Things the Hard Way? 

You need to avoid common mistakes that keep most affiliate marketers from making a living online…

The odds are stacked against most entrepreneurs trying to make a living online. Unfortunately, they’re easily distracted by so many shiny objects.

I’ve been there…

In my experience, the less money you make online… the more desperate you are to buy traffic-generation software and marketing information products that can, hopefully, help you solve your traffic and sales problems.

This is the reason why many entrepreneurs end up becoming unintentional “investors” of so many costly marketing quick-fix solutions that never really pay off.

Sadly, I know this all too well…

When I was a newbie, I allowed myself to get lured by the promise of free traffic… and I paid dearly for it.

There are so many INEFFECTIVE marketing strategies being promoted online.

Some strategies are actually get-rich-quick schemes that have absolutely no chance of ever working. But, the promise of getting massive push-button free traffic can be irresistible for struggling entrepreneurs… even when it sounds too good to be true.

Many strategies may sound good in theory, but they can waste a lot of your time, money and energy when you put them into practice.

What’s even worse? Some strategies rely on temporary marketing loopholes that can get your accounts permanently suspended or banned.

Information overload contributes a great deal to the ridiculously high rate of failure. It’s too overwhelming for most people to do many ineffective strategies.

So, STOP spinning your wheels….

You need to stop wasting your time, trying and hoping to get free traffic. Creating lots of content is so time-consuming. It’s like a full-time job in itself. You end up with never having time for anything else.

It’s just not sustainable….

The long hours and hard work – especially with little or no payoff – can lead to burnout and despair.

You need to avoid hit-or-miss, “spray-and-pray” ineffective marketing methods that keep you overworked and under-paid.

Instead, you need to focus only on using the most PROVEN marketing strategies that work effectively. You need to focus on reliable, predictable and profitable marketing strategies that will grow your online business day after day.

Why spend countless hours and thousands of dollars trying to figure out how to get traffic and sales?

You can go broke trying to learn the ropes.

It’s crucial that you take as much of the guesswork out of affiliate marketing and avoid unnecessary risks.


Mistakes can be costly! It’s not just your time, money and energy that will get wasted. Marketing mistakes can keep you from having a profitable and successful business for many months or even years!

What’s even worse than wasting a lot of time, money and energy?

Losing hope!

If you end up losing hope, you can end up giving up on your dream of building a profitable business and living the lifestyle that you deserve.

Do not let that happen to you!
