Below are few things that aspirant affiliate marketers overlook;
- Fierce competition
Since affiliate marketing is a lucrative type of business, everyone is competing to make six figure income. This line of business is easy to set up. It requires a small amount of capital. But the return on investment is abnormally high. It’s a “Gold Rush” of some kind.
Some of the affiliate are not doing it at all. All what they do, they wait for newbies to start this business. They immediately intervene and promise to help them succeed. They sell all kind of crap video’s, cd’s and other affiliate marketing software.
The idea is to make newbies fail. In short they want them to focus on outdated/failed affiliate marketing products. Their main goal is to discourage competition.
- Business sound scam like

- Imitating/coping what others are doing

If you want to attract people to visit your site, you need to look into your site and apply your own systems that will convince visitors that indeed they must visit it. Such systems generating traffic are learned not copied
- Lack of consistency
If you’re consistent on your affiliate marketing strategy, chances are high for you to succeed. Testing too many affiliate marketing systems, will give rise to two challenges. Your precious time is wasted. Most importantly, your hard earned income will go down the drain without yield any results
