There’s no easy way to become an affiliate marketer, or at least a semi-successful one. I wouldn’t deem myself successful because I just have two or three websites under my wing that have moderate to very high traffic.
It wasn’t so easy when it seemed real easy (was this confusing?). All you had to do to get started was to buy some domain names, put up websites using maybe WordPress such as the one I’ve used for this website or some other content management framework and voila, instant marketing and advertising avenue.
But it’s not really the case.
You’ll also have to worry about user traffic, user attitudes, PPC and everything else in between. It’s never an easy task to contact blogs to allow you to post some advertising.
You’ll be banned in plenty of forums. You’ll make some enemies. You’ll find your ideas and beliefs challenged
All because you began a single marketing website.
Of course, you’ll be more motivated if there was some danger involved.
During my time, I was. I needed money to operate on a leg injury that I had had from a motorbike accident. Desperation was near. I needed to raise cash or else.
So I thought about the movie and found that it was a lot of fun to face some hardships. When you have the right to laugh after you’ve faced all the odds, you can say the journey, even if it wasn’t easy, it was worth it and it meant that you did it.
This was the point in my life where I developed my capabilities. This was the time when I created and published different strategies to ensure my blogs had income flowing in them. This was when I first realized that I could make money from online marketing and affiliate marketing.
So I expanded my operations. I healed my leg at this point. I found some people who taught me not to take everything too seriously. So I did, and I had a lot of fun along the way.
This is why most of the posts you’ll see here are about fun and learning at the same time. My mentors have taught me this because they knew I was depressed from my leg injury and hopelessness. So I would definitely want to share this vibe and information with you.
