Is affiliate marketing a Waste?

A lot of people have asked me so many questions concerning affiliate marketing but I have not been able to respond to them all. I want to use this opportunity to answer them all. Before giving my answer, I want us to first explain what affiliate marketing is. I will be answering this with clear evidence of what affiliate marketing is.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is an advertising model in which a company compensates third-party publishers to generate traffic or leads to the company’s products and services. The third-party publishers are affiliates, and the commission fee incentivizes them to find ways to promote the company. In a nutshell, it is a marketing pattern in which a company pays someone to help them promote and sell either their services or products.

Now, let us get back to the question at hand:

Is Affiliate marketing a waste of Time?

Well, that all depends on how you look at affiliate marketing:
If you hope that affiliate marketing is a great way to “get rich quick” and “earn while you sleep” as many “affiliate program owners” claim, then sadly you will very quickly get disappointed. Or worse, scammed, as there are sadly a ton of unscrupulous companies in the affiliate industry. If you meanwhile come to affiliate marketing with a good plan and have read a bit about how the industry really works, then affiliate marketing might be a very good way for you to earn some extra income.
So before you start your affiliate career, I think it would be a good idea if you first read a bit about the industry and made a strategic plan. Looking through blogs like TrackDesk, PostAffiliatePro, or Easy Affiliate is a good start – you’ll learn more about the industry and also find some tips and tricks from affiliate experts.
Affiliate marketing is not a waste of time and it’s one of the best and easiest ways you can earn online but if you don’t know how to go about it, it can be a waste of time for you.
Firstly, you need to have patience and don’t expect too much too soon when doing Affiliate marketing.
Secondly, look for knowledge. You must know it and out of the affiliate program you want to join and know their products, know how to promote the product as well which is very important because if you don’t know how to promote it there’s no how you can make money and it is a waste of time for you. You can hire someone to do that for you.
Lastly, always pray to God and never stop the promotion.

What are some reasons people fail in affiliate marketing or online business?

Those who fail in affiliate marketing or online business do not know who and where their target audience is online nor how to best market to them. It is 25% about the product and 75% about how you market it. Some of the youngest and most successful internet biz gurus are using social media sites and their own YouTube channels to market many products and gain a following. They know how to get people to click on their affiliate links over and over again. A big part of their success is that they are usually very well-spoken or very entertaining to watch, and often are impressive enough to capture the attention of many people in their target market. They know exactly why their target market will ‘impulse buy’ the product and how to entice them to buy from them! Often you can learn a lot from them by watching their YouTube channel. as most of these go-getters start to offer their own training programs to help people like you who want to succeed in an online business.
this is because people are being told that affiliate marketing is a “ get rich quick” method and they are often disappointed when they find out that it’s not the case.
take time to learn new skills and gather experiences.
