Now, I am going to give you top 14 reasons why you can not sell more affiliate products and earn huge affiliate commission in the home based affiliate marketing business. If you are wondering why you are failed and can not earn big affiliate commission in the online affiliate business, I like you to discover top reasons below.
1) Lack of the affiliate marketing business plan and business model. I have communicated with many affiliate entrepreneurs and I found that most of them don’t have their own affiliate marketing business plan, marketing plan; even their business model. Personally, I strongly believe that planning is one of the most significant steps in your affiliate marketing business. You must have your own goals and plans. Without planning, you are wasting your time and money for undo and redo tasks to build, grow and run the affiliate business.
2) Lack of well and effective marketing research. The poor marketing research shows that you have no idea about your people in your markets and you have no knowledge enough to solve their problems. Also, you do not know what exactly needs in your market. All you have to do during the marketing research is to discover the exactly problem and solution what people are looking for in the market. There are many approaches to do the most effective marketing research on the internet right now. One of the best effective approaches is to participant in the active and well-known forums.
3) Promote only one affiliate product at a time. As you are the affiliate entrepreneurs, your major task is to drive the quality content of the affiliate products for people who need those products. It is not a great idea to promote only one affiliate product at a time for your market. However, promoting too much affiliate products is not a great idea either. There are no success rules for this. You have to test and track the results by yourself. My experiences show that the rule of thumb for a number of affiliate products, which you should promote, is between 3 and 10 at a time.
4) Advertising the wrong poor affiliate products. How to choose the high profitable affiliate products is the first critical step. You can choose those profitable affiliate products when you have a well and effective research in your markets and products. There are many approaches revealing you how to select the high profitable affiliate products. All you have to do is to avoid the scam programs on the internet.
5) Lack of the quality content. As we know that the quality content is the king. All you have to do is to provide high quality content for each affiliate products for your people in the market. The high quality content could be: your unbiased personal recommendation, hot news, great articles related to the product and up-to-date information for the product.
6) Lack of great relationship with merchants. Working with the merchants is an absolutely great idea for you to start promoting the affiliate products. You can request, build relationship with merchants or even negotiate the affiliate commission structure with your merchants.
7) Lack of quality opt-in list. The opt-in list is the most important asset for affiliate marketing entrepreneurs. Without the list, you are wasting your time and money for selling affiliate products. Think about this way! You drive visitors to merchants’ website. If those visitors make a purchase, you will get an affiliate commission. If there are no any purchases, you will not get your commission. With this situation, it is a great idea for affiliate entrepreneurs to capture visitors’ information in order to sell other affiliate products later. With capturing the visitors’ information, your opportunities to earn more affiliate commission are opened and increased. You can sell other affiliate products later in the future.
8) Lack of strong back-end selling. The strong back-end selling is one of the most effective approaches for affiliate marketing entrepreneurs to sell more affiliate products to the existing buyers or subscribers. The key to success for back-end selling is to focus on both of existing buyers/subscribers and new potential customers.
9) Lack of well-known reputation in the market. The reputation is very important for your creditability and reliability. All you have to do are: advertising yourself all the time in the market and be aware of what affiliate products you are going to promote. With the scam affiliate products, it will hurt your reputation directly.
10) Lack of the consistency in the business and markets. I would love to say that the consistency in your business and markets is one of the most significant elements for your highly successful in long-term. You have to get to know your market, catch-up new technology and stay in your business in the long run. With this sense, you can become an outstanding among your competitors with new technology. Also, you can improve continuously your home based affiliate business all the time and stay on top in your business.
11) Rely on one affiliate internet marketing strategy. Obviously, you can not rely on one affiliate internet marketing strategy. My highest recommendation is to build multiple streams of incomes through multiple affiliate internet marketing strategies. Those strategies can be: article marketing, email promotion internet marketing, blog online marketing, search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertising and join venture partnership.
12) Do not know how to get things done effectively. This is one of the most critical issues for affiliate marketing entrepreneurs. There are a ton of tasks for those affiliate entrepreneurs to build highly profitable & successful in the affiliate marketing business. Those tasks require a lot of time and effort. Prioritizing and scheduling tasks are two basic approaches to help you to get things done!
13) Lack of self-improvement. There is no doubt that you are the best asset in your business. All you have to do is to improve yourself continuously all the time. I am sure that you are the only person who can determine your success and where you want to be in the future. Without self-improvement, it is very difficult to build your own highly profitable home based affiliate business.
14) Give up too quickly. Most new affiliate entrepreneurs expect to get rich with selling affiliate products overnight or short term. My experiences show that the affiliate business is not the get-rich-quick scheme. You have to be determination, motivate and patient for your success in the long future. All I can tell you is that the affiliate business is an extremely powerful business and it is a win-win situation between affiliate marketing entrepreneurs and merchants.
