Critical Affiliate Marketing Mistakes That Ruin Your Affiliate Commission (Part I)

There are numerous critical affiliate marketing mistakes that make affiliate marketers lots of cash. When you make such a crucial mistake, you lose customers and sales.

Nobody enjoys losing customers.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the biggest and more crucial affiliate marketing mistakes made by affiliate marketers.

Losing Hope

The biggest mistake you can make with affiliate marketing is giving up. Be patient, it will pay off.

You don’t have to lose hope. At times, it gets very hard and there seems to be no answer. You have to keep going.

Perhaps the biggest mistake an affiliate marketer makes is losing hope.

As a new affiliate marketer, you aren’t going to make much. Honestly, there will be times when you will not earn one cent. You have to wait for at least 90 days or even more before you will begin earning money with affiliate marketing.

The issue begins when you don’t see any results even with putting in lots and lots of effort. No sales or traffic for weeks.

And you are doing all you can. You are running an affiliate marketing campaign. You are endorsing your affiliate blog. You are publishing many times a week.

Still no traffic or sales. Even Google isn’t indexing your blog posts.

This is the point in which many affiliate marketers lose hope and stop. The ones who pass this phase, flourish.

You cannot bypass the down time. You have to wait a couple of months because search engines need time to index, rank, and crawl your website.

To be successful, you can pick one path from these two:

Keep working hard. You’ll see the results soon.

Go to paid traffic. Don’t wait for search engines to send traffic. Do a PPC campaign.

Though using a paid traffic source might not deliver sales ASAP, you have to do some testing but at least, it will not unmotivated you. Decent traffic coming on your landing page keeps you upbeat and motivated.
