Maybe you’ve started your affiliate website and put effort and time into it, but it seems like you have nothing to show for it. Or, maybe you’re thinking about creating one but it seems like it’s a lot of work, it’s complicated, and to top it all off, risky.
Well, things might seem like that, but this is equally untrue as saying that affiliate marketing is easy money. The main issue is lack of trust people have in themselves and in the concept of earning passive income.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at a common reason why people give up on affiliate marketing, and why they are not true:
"I have no time or no money" you say?
Affiliate marketing is an investment. You have to build a website, create content, create an ad campaign, and all of this takes time and money. But, you don’t have to have thousands of dollars or a ton of free time to get started.
To start, you need an hour a day, if that. You need to put up a site, which can be done in a matter of hours nowadays. You need to create some initial content, and all of that could take you a few weeks if you’re doing it at a leisurely pace.
Moneywise, the only money you NEED to fork out is for your domain name which you pay around $10 per year, and hosting, which you will pay less than $10 per month. Now, it is beneficial if you have some spare cash lying around to put into your advertising campaign. Even that ad money will be partially returned from your affiliate payouts.
Yes, it’s tempting to just sit back and relax after you’ve come home from school or your regular job, but as the saying goes:
“If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.”
The math is simple, the more time and money you put in, the faster you will grow your business. But it is actually a good idea to start slow, until you learn the ropes.
