Avoid affiliate marketing business failure by being aware of the most common strategies that many people are using on the internet.

The affiliate marketing failure rate is not as high as it used to be, but it is still extremely high. Not long ago 95% of those that tried to make money with affiliate marketing failed. Now, it is reported that as many as two out of every ten people are succeeding in earning as an affiliate.

There are many people whose goal is to earn a hundred dollars a month. As people define success at different levels this helps explain why more people are succeeding and the failure rate is dropping.

They are still successful affiliate marketers because they know exactly what their goal is. There are many more who want to earn a full-time income as an affiliate marketer and a high number of those are achieving their goal.

Let’s have a look now at some of the strategies that eight out of the ten affiliate marketers are using that is causing them to fail.

Failing to set up a separate affiliate marketing business website. They use the replicated website provided by the affiliate company which is not a good strategy for success, unless of course you drive massive amounts of traffic to it. It is a fact that most affiliate marketers never reach that level.

Failing to capture the names and email addresses of your website visitors for future follow up. Commonly known as building an email marketing list, this for many top affiliate marketers is the cornerstone of success. Do not build a list if you want to ensure your failure.

Failing to own the product they are trying to promote. As you promote more affiliate products this may become less important.

When you first start out, owning the product gives you an advantage over your competitors. By creating a review page and showing that you really know what you’re talking about will certainly help you sell more.

Failing to persist with one product but rather jumping around from one product to the next and ultimately never making any money at all. Due to the fact that it is free to join an affiliate program it is tempting to think that the program is what is keeping you from succeeding rather that your lack of commitment and hard work.

It is a fact that if you would just focus on making money with one product before taking on another you will avoid failure.

Failing to ever generate a meaningful amount of targeted traffic. It is all in the numbers and if you do not generate enough targeted visitors to your website you will never make any sales. The two out of ten affiliate marketers are thankfully now generating more traffic than they used to.

Implementing these few affiliate marketing failure strategies will certainly guarantee your failure. So, take note to avoid these mistakes and affiliate marketing business success is certainly within your reach.
