Not Having the Right Mindset
You need to surround yourself with people who are successful in affiliate marketing. Learn from real affiliate marketers who are making money online in their own businesses.
Don’t follow someone who only teaches.
Affiliate Marketers Not Telling a Story
You need to connect to customers. The best way to do this, is to tell a story. Avoid the sales pitch! Create original ads that convert.
People want interesting content. It needs to be unique and different to everything else online.
Not Promoting Products that Convert
You need to promote products that convert well. Products need to have good sales pages that lead to sales. When advertising, CPC’s need to be profitable.
Not Buying Ads that Convert
A common mistake for new affiliate marketers, is to not understand their target audience. People guess who their target audience is, without any real data.
You need to target your market, who want the product the most.
This is known as Custom Audiences, and Facebook makes it real easy to do this. If you have a database of email addresses, you can upload these to Facebook, and advertise to only to customers who have bought previously.
Over Complicating Your System
If you are starting out in affiliate marketing, too many people fall into the trap of trying to over complicate things.
For your online business to succeed, you need to have an easy, non technical system in place as quickly as possible, so you can start earning money.
You should be able to have your campaigns up and running in as little as 15 minutes, allowing you to spend your valuable time working on your business.
Don’t spend too much time on the technical aspects of affiliate marketing.
