Written by David Seitz

Beingrepparttar affiliate marketing director for one ofrepparttar 102623 nets most popular affiliate programs I tend to see just about every type of problem an affiliate could run into. One ofrepparttar 102624 biggest problems if not THE biggest problem I see again and again is what we refer to as "Affiliate Gluttony"

And no, were not talking donuts here!

All jokes aside, affiliate gluttony is a very real and serious problem amongrepparttar 102625 affiliate marketing world and you may be surprised to see that your own webpage might fall intorepparttar 102626 gluttony category. Don't worry though, it's only partially contagious and there is a cure!

So what is affiliate gluttony?

Glad you asked! If you can recognize affiliate gluttony, you can avoid it entirely and increase your affiliate promotion revenue.

Affiliate gluttony is really greed in disguise. It's an "unfocused" attempt at earning multiple income streams. Don't get me wrong "multiple" income streams should be one of your "biggest" goals but trying to create them on ONE website is just asking for failure. No wait... it's BEGGING for it!

I am sure you have seen it plenty of times online. You come across a website while looking for a product or piece of information and you get dumped into gluttony land.

Let's set an example here...

Sally has a website on ebook marketing which promotes "Big Companies Super Duper Ebook Marketing Guide" affiliate program. But hold on a minute, while we are waiting forrepparttar 102627 page to load ridiculous amounts of needless images we also see that Sally is promotingrepparttar 102628 "Dandy John's Nuclear Powered Orange Juice Squeezer With Email Attachment Interface" plus don't forgetrepparttar 102629 "Romance or Bust: Hitch Hikers Guide To Finding A Soul Mate On The Open Desert Road In 7 Days or Less" affiliate program and several "hundred" other great bargains that we all have been looking for our entire lives! Wow, everything from fruit baskets to rocket fuel.

Damn, we foundrepparttar 102630 gold mine here! I better call my credit card company right now and request a credit extension because daddy's going to be ordering up a storm today! Sally will be on her way to a tropical paradise byrepparttar 102631 time I'm done shopping at her site.

S T O P ! ! !

Ok Sally, it's time to wake up! In reality I'd hit my browsers back button faster than you can say: "What's a nuclear powered orange juicer look like?"

How many affiliate ad's do you think you can fit on one webpage? Are you trying to breakrepparttar 102632 record?
