3 Affiliate Marketing Myths Debunked!

3 Affiliate Marketing Myths Debunked!

We’ve all heard it before…Affiliate Marketing doesn’t work, Affiliate Marketing is a scam, Affiliate Marketing is MLM, Affiliate Marketing is a thing of the past, Affiliate Marketing is too competitive…and the list goes on!

When it comes to Affiliate Marketing there’s an awful lot of myths floating around out there. Let’s have a  look at what I think are three of the main affiliate marketing myths that need to be debunked.

Affiliate Marketing Is a Thing of The Past

Because of Google’s changing algorithms for SEO, link building is outdated which means Affiliate Marketing is a thing of the past. Even though link building is not as useful as it once was, there are many, many ways that you can use SEO for, to create your brand and strengthen it.

Sure you might come across a few little problems with Google if you aren’t managing your program properly, but overall the entire idea of Affiliate Marketing will instill a presence with your website, your customers and to Google. After all, your site provides another source for relevant related information for consumers. This is what Google loves the most these days!

Managing Affiliate Systems Is Quick and Easy

As most of us already know and contrary to what you might have been told, Affiliate Marketing is not a get rich overnight business. Then again what is? Affiliate Marketing requires you to invest your time and energy into whatever niche you have chosen to pursue.

It takes quite a bit of work and the competition is fairly stiff in most niches, so don’t expect to make money right away. If you have the right mentor or coaching program, you will be taught how to drive down deep in the niche you have chosen to work with.

You can reasonably expect it will take anywhere from 6 months or more before you start to see the fruits of your labor!

Too many Internet Marketing entrepreneurs think that all you have to do is set up your website, pick an affiliate, and it will start to make money all by itself. Guess what? It simply is not true.

According to Three Ladders Marketing (based in Seattle WA) less than 1 percent of all Affiliate Marketers who were surveyed have been doing this since 2013. An Affiliate Marketing Business takes some time, effort and patience to build, but once you have done the groundwork including a lot of research and you have selected the right product, then you can begin to reap the benefits of an income stream now and well into the future.

You Need a Lucrative Niche For Philip Marketing To Be Successful

Before I get inundated with the question ‘WHAT IS PHILIP MARKETING’…Peter is a person and here is a ‘grab’ I found (from Wikipedia) after I entered the term into my google search bar…

Philip Kotler (born May 27, 1931 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American marketing author, consultant, and professor; currently the S. C. Johnson Distinguished Professor of International Marketing at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

He is the author of over 55 marketing books, including Principles of Marketing, Kotler on Marketing: How to Create, Win, and Dominate Markets, and Marketing 3.0: From Products to Customers to the Human Spirit. Kotler describes strategic marketing as serving as “the link between society’s needs and its pattern of industrial response.”

There are far too many companies that don’t even bother to give Affiliate Marketing a chance because they believe their market is just too small. Other companies will attempt to break into bigger niches even when they have no interest in that niche.

Yes, it’s true, the more popular niches do better when it comes to Affiliate Marketing, however, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy success. Stay true to the goals of your business, find affiliates who understand the importance of your market, and make sure you are comfortable with the affiliate you are considering.

It’s time to ignore and forget these Affiliate Marketing myths that plague us as budding Affiliate Marketers and start to discover the truths about making money with Affiliate Marketing and creating your dream and the freedom to produce a long-term income stream.
