Hello there today I would like to talk about something different. I would like to talk about the 4 affiliate marketing mistakes you should avoid as a beginner, because they will be a good thing to focus on once you start as an affiliate marketer.
If you are a newbie in affiliate marketing or even an advanced one I would suggest you to read this post, because there is always time to improve and implement into your business. Not a single thing is 100% perfect that is why we constantly change things in order to adapt.
What would be the 4 things you should focus on not doing in order to have a far better and more stable affiliate marketing income?
Build a Following
This is by far the most important thing for me. In order to achieve a good and stable income you must do this thing first. By building a following I mean generating an audience that is happy to work with you and give you results in return for your hard work.
What kind of an audience should you build? Well this would all depend by what kind of business you have. If you have a blog one of the best tools for traffic would be Facebook, I’m not mentioning SEO into this topic. I have generated tons of traffic from FB, but you can also build other followings as well. The most important is building a list. Email marketing is important to connect with people and it’s far more personal. Also don’t forget YouTube, other social media and also client building.
By growing yourself an audience you can build an army that is ready to do anything for you. Make sure you start off with this, because it works on the long run and it’s the most important part.
2. Don’t go full on BlackHat
Trust me on this one, it’s a buzz killer. Never go full BlackHat. The best way is to implement both or go full white hat. I have been in the BH zone and have found many hidden gems. But the problem is they get easily depleted and once it gets over you have nothing else to do.
So if you are planning to work with BlackHat make a parallel WhiteHat method so you can combine them, by the time the BH finishes or might not you have a WH that will make you an income.
3.Never Stand Still
This is my problem as well. When I find a good source of income I tend to use it but don’t adapt and don’t grow from there. This is a big mistake, so if you find a good income source make sure you hit it right to the fullest or search for a new one that is close and related.
I tend to be lazy sometimes so when I find something good I don’t go 100%, but I stopped making that mistake and it’s a bad habit trust me.
4. Organization is key
I think that this is a really important thing, because if you don’t know what you are doing you will be doing nothing. Always make a plan or even follow a schedule that way you will know what to do and how to do it.
There have been times where I didn’t know what to do and let me tell you it’s a bad thing. You don’t know where are you going, you are just driving and testing this and that. If you plan to do something do it right and move to the next one after you have completed the selected one.
I hope this helps you have a better look at what kind of mistakes there are for affiliate marketing.
