Why is it so hard to make money with Affiliate Marketing?

It’s a good question, isn’t it? Why *is it* so hard to make money with #affiliate #marketing? Today we’re going to explore some of the pitfalls and bear-traps surrounding the Internets most popular method for generating online income. And we’re going to do it in the form of an online podcast.

You may not be aware of it, but I’ve been doing online audio since 2001, even before it was known as “podcasting”. It’s my core so to speak, that one thing that I was able to identify early on as the thing I was “best at”. So today I’m starting a new series for you, “Why is it so hard to … ?” We’ll be covering all the popular topics; affiliate marketing, backlinking, PLR, Adsense, list building, CPA, WSO’s, online and offline.

And I’d love your feedback! What is it that you’re working on, that you might be struggling with? Let me know so I can seek out the answers for you.

However, getting started today… why is it so hard to get started with affiliate marketing? It’s the single most popular method for making money online, millions of people are doing it – surly it must be easy! No.

Perhaps one of the reasons could be “because millions of people are doing it.” Maybe it’s also because you’re never “really” in control (it’s not your product), or it could have something to do with the fact that the customer isn’t your customer. Is there a list involved? Whose is it? Yours or the product owners?

These are all factors that come into play.

Let’s get started – enjoy!
