It seems that the more affiliates I talk to, the more obvious it becomes that a lot of internet marketers are struggling at affiliate marketing. Apparently it’s a lot harder than a lot of people think it is.

But affiliate marketing should be a slam dunk when you consider all the wonderful advantages it offers.

Consider that:

  • You get to choose your products on consignment.
  • There are literally thousands of products to choose from
  • You can advertise you products for free.
  • You can promote your product to an audience of millions and millions of potential customers.
  • You can rake in massive commissions of up to 75% per sale per product.

Pretty amazing isn’t it!

So why isn’t every affiliate marketer rich?

The answer to that question is what I call the secret to harmonious selection.

Harmonious Selection:

In order to get affiliate marketing to work right you must select the next list of items so that they work together seamlessly on a timely and harmonious basis.

  1. You have to search out a very small subsection of a larger market called a market or micro market niche. For example, if affiliate marketing is a sub market of the larger internet marketing market then “struggling affiliate marketers” would be a niche or micro market of internet marketing. Get it?
  2. Try and make your niche market as fresh and new as possible. If you choose a niche that’s old and tired and “over-fished” so to speak you’re going to have a tough time.
  3. Choose a product that fits really well with your chosen niche. For this struggling affiliate marketing example, you may choose a service that helps you with keyword selection.
  4. Learn how to get really good at thinking outside of the box so you can come up with keywords that will really attract and promote your niche product to your market niche.
  5. And finally this fifth point, a point that should be considered throughout all of the stages is that you have to be finding and promoting to a very hungry crowd of consumers.

I guarantee that if you get all 5 points right you will be very successful at affiliate marketing.

Get one or more of these items wrong or out of sync and your efforts are wasted. You will still be very busy going through the process and it does take a lot of time and effort but at the end you will not make any money.

For many affiliate marketers reading this article, you know exactly what I’m talking about. For those of you that don’t, I hope that this information helps you immensely to be successful.

When I started into the affiliate marketing game I failed miserably. I put in a lot of hours writing articles, blogs and building websites for what I thought were fresh new niches playing to starving crowds but all along I found it very difficult to get right.

But then to be perfectly honest, I got lucky!

I ran across a very successful affiliate marketer that was making over 7 figures, perfectly willing to choose my market niches and all my promotional keywords for me.

All of a sudden because these markets and keywords were all tested to be money winners I just had to worry about the grunt work of writing articles and building sites. No more guessing or hoping I got it right.
