This is a big question to try to answer, is it possible to piggy back onto someone else’s success?  There are a lot of variables to take into consideration.

Obviously some of the affiliate schemes do work, but a lot of affiliate schemes will not.  Why is this? It is a simple question to answer really, the biggest reason that some don’t work is because the product that you are trying to sell doesn’t have market appeal or there is no market for the product to try to sell it into.

Have you every come across an affiliate scheme and thought, how on earth does anyone make any money from this, the product is useless and you can’t imagine anyone wanting it? Well believe you me it is possible to sell anything to anyone but you need to advertise in the right place and need to have the right tools in place to be able to do it.  Affiliate schemes by nature attract people who are running affiliate businesses, especially when you starting out.

Let’s take an example, you are looking for a way to make extra income on the internet, you take the plunge into signing up for a scheme that sounds good, with a product that you want to use.  You make the purchase and you make use of the product that you have bought, before you know it you are then flooded with other products that sound great and would really help your business, so you buy into another and another, suddenly you are working the affiliate market.  

Someone started out exactly where you are now at the bottom run of the ladder and you appear to be parting with money rather than making money.  But just take a step back and think for a moment, the product, ezine, service that you bought is actually making an affiliate up to and over half of the value of the product, therefore it must work.  Now you’re thinking along the right lines.

If you are going to become an affiliate marketer then it is essential that you have got your own website, you just cannot run a business without a website no matter what industry you are in.  You may be thinking what do I need a website for, well you need a website to showcase the products, if you think of the products and services that you are promoting as your own, remember you can earn up to 75% of the value of the product, if you are selling a product that is worth $100 that is $75 for everyone you sell, then you need to think of this as a proper business.  You need the business tools in place; it is no good having the affiliate product link and then thinking well how on earth will I promote this.

It would be wise to work on the premise that you only try to promote and sell products that you would use yourself, if you stick to this idea then it is more likely that you are going to have success with your affiliate business.

The golden rule is to remember that if someone else can do it then I can do it too, if you remember this, follow the help that you can get online and work at your affiliate business then you too can have a piece of the internet pie.
