Unfortunately, there is no immediate success with Affiliate Marketing.
I think everyone and anyone who has got into affiliate marketing has tried and then failed doing so. Short cuts are the way to failure, not to success.
Understand me, you can make a lot of money with affiliate marketing, but you have to invest either your TIME or your MONEY.
Investing time would be using free traffic sources like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc.
This is by providing value to cold traffic. What I mean by cold traffic is people who have no idea who you are or what offer you have, and hoping they will click on your affiliate link. The key to doing this is like I mentioned, providing VALUE. Without value, no one will pay attention to who you are or what you are doing.
If you are using Facebook, you need to be posting on groups, answering peoples questions and providing value with them. This will get them to trust you, ask to be your friend, and then they become more of a warmer traffic. This is when you can either ask for the sale or have your link on your profile for them to click on.
Using YouTube, you have to make sure you are posting videos that are relevant to your niche and doing keyword research. This will allow your video to rank higher and be seen by more people, and again, give VALUE.
Investing money is using paid traffic. Before doing so, I would always highly recommend investing your money into a mentor FIRST and understand everything about affiliate marketing.
You can pay for all sorts of traffic like FB ads, Google Ad words, Solo ads and the list goes on.
FB and Google ads are setting up campaigns that will be seen by the audience you set, and you will be paying for those services. This is much quicker than free traffic but again, if you don’t know what you are doing, you will spend a lot of money on ads that don’t convert. So again, invest in a mentor.
Solo ads are a little different. This is paying for clicks from someone who has a big email list. This is a quick way of getting clicks, but this is cold traffic. Do your research on the seller first, see testimonials and always check their feedback, even subscribe to their email list to see what sort of emails they send out. Make sure you also have a good follow up sequence email to retarget your leads.
No matter what you choose, there is no immediate success. You need to stay focused and work hard to achieve the goals you set yourself and become successful in affiliate marketing.
