When I first got into affiliate marketing in 2009, I had no clue about how to get traffic online, let alone affiliate marketing traffic. All I wanted was to become a super affiliate.
It’s a term used to describe affiliate marketers who make $10,000 per month.
$10,000 per month is a magic number. It’s like the smell of mama’s pie cooling on the window sill. You can smell it from miles away. It reminds you how hungry you are. It consumes your attention until nothing matters more than getting a piece of the pie. But you can’t have it. It needs to cool. And besides, you haven’t had dinner yet.
I envied marketers whose names glittered on the product launch leaderboards. They were making more money, had more freedom and lived life with gusto.
Incidentally, the leaderboard didn’t change from launch to launch. It seemed like there were couple dozen super affiliates who always outsold the rest of us.
Free targeted traffic is a myth.
It’s a turd in a candy wrapper you’re being fed since day one in internet marketing.
It’s the sole cause of misery for tens of thousands of marketers who put in 40-60 hours a week into their online businesses without a return.
Eventually you find out there’s no such thing as “free” in this business.
No such thing as free help.
No such thing as free education.
And yes.. No such thing as free targeted traffic.
Do solo ads really work? If not, why is everyone talking about them? If they do, how do you know if they’ll work for you without dropping thousands of dollars on traffic tests?
Affiliate marketing is awesome.
Its probably one of the best businesses you can build online.
You don’t have to create products, do customer support or even think about tracking. Office space? Employees? Forget about it! It’s the best way to live the laptop lifestyle.
Just send lots of targeted biz opp traffic to your affiliate links and you’re good to go!
And this is where the only challenge with affiliate marketing lies – how do you get good traffic?
