[02:00] Common Mistakes In Affiliate Marketing:

  • One of the most common mistakes people make in affiliate marketing is choosing to partner with big brands like Amazon for affiliate commissions.

  • Amazon’s low-profit margins result in meager payouts for referrals, making it challenging to generate significant traffic and create a sustainable income.

  • Promoting a $20 product that pays only $3 in commissions won’t yield substantial earnings, especially when you factor in the expenses of running an affiliate business, such as website costs and tools.

[03:10] How To Increase Your Income?

  • To maximize your income potential, I recommend focusing on private and recurring affiliate programs that offer substantial commissions for a single referral.

  • Partnering with programs that pay you big commissions every month for the same referral means you put in the work once but continue earning passive commissions on an ongoing basis.

  • Within a few months, these commissions can accumulate into a substantial income, covering your expenses and providing you with extra money.

  • Another strategy is to promote higher-priced products that offer 50-70% commissions. With just a few sales, you can achieve a great additional income.

[04:15] Build Your Email Lists:

  • Building a following or an email list is crucial for long-term success in affiliate marketing.

  • An email list is a powerful money-making asset because you can continually send product recommendations and earn affiliate commissions.

  • On the other hand, affiliates who solely rely on traffic sources without building a solid following can quickly find themselves in trouble if they lose access to those traffic sources, like Facebook groups or Google rankings.
