How to Be Successful in Affiliate Marketing


“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”

-Thomas Edison

Success does not happen overnight. Thomas Edison failed over 1,000 times before he successfully created the light bulb. If Thomas Edison had given up after the first few times, well…we would still be using candles and living in the dark! In order to be successful in Affiliate Marketing, you need to be ready to learn, be in for the long haul, and ditch the naysayers.

Learning is the Answer in Affiliate Marketing

Don’t expect to start working for one week and then see thousands of dollars in your account. Be prepared to learn how to build your business, brand, marketing, and website. You can be successful and live the dream life you have always imagined (vacations, a beautiful house, or starting a family), but you need to put in the work. Anyone promising you fast and easy riches is most likely a scammer that will take your money and run away laughing to his or her offshore bank account.

This is a modern day Edison.


This is not a modern day Edison.

Patience is What Allows You to be Successful

Don’t give up if you are not an overnight success. Most people take 6 months to a year before becoming successful. Be ready to learn from the masters, such as Wealthy Affiliate.

What I love about Wealthy Affiliate is that the founder, Kyle, teaches you how to find a niche, build a business website, and market yourself for success. You get tons of support from the Wealthy Affiliate community as well. The founders, Kyle and Carson, are always there for your questions. Plus there is a 24/7 Site support team. You are in safe hands!

As a bonus, Wealthy Affiliate is affordable, only $49 a month or $359 a year. Still hesitant? Wealthy Affiliate allows you to start off as a free starter member so you can see if it is a good fit for you.

Ditch the Naysayers

Imagine if Thomas Edison told a friend (we’ll call him John) about his work on light bulbs and John laughed at him.

John says, “Tom, you’re a great guy, but this whole light bulb idea is a waste of your time and money! Now, let’s go for some beer before it gets dark outside!”

Thomas Edison hangs his head in disappointment and decides to follow John’s advice. Now, where would we be if Thomas Edison listened to John?

To be a successful affiliate marketer, you need to ditch those naysayers like John and never give up on yourself like Edison.  Successful Affiliate Marketers are patient, ready to learn, and ditch the naysayers.  So where would you rather be? Wishing you lived the dream or living the dream?
