Whenever I get asked why number of people actually making money online from affiliate programs is so low, I have a number of answers ready.
I feel one of main reasons is way people are advertising their opportunity to prospect.
Just think about that for a moment, also think about how you are bringing prospects into your program or opportunity.
Far too many new affiliates tend to over-hype their opportunity in hope of getting a new sign-up, some do it through miseducation about opportunity and some through a deliberate effort to mislead to get an end result.
Unfortunately, this form of advertising will have a huge negative affect on their monthly online income and also on way a prospect will react when they realize that opportunity is not all that was promised.
If this type of advertising and promotion describes way you are promoting, I can predict your online future for you right now..................
.................................you don't have one!
That's right, you are wasting your time and money trying to build a successful online business in this way. If your business is MLM or network marketing based then you will soon find yourself dead in water.
To build a solid residual income from one of those business types, you need to build a solid team of affiliates and members who trust you, and are prepared to follow you and your methods to get results.
More often than not you can not be successful unless your team or downline is successful, if you bring them in by promising more than you can deliver they will be gone before they earn you a cent.
If you want to build a successful online business in MLM or Network Marketing then you need to be honest and upfront about your program. If you have to make false claims about your opportunity to get people to sign-up, then you need to start looking for a new opportunity to join.
Find yourself a company that has been around for a while and I mean a few years not months. Find a company that is continuing to grow each year and that pays a good percentage of commission to it's affiliates per sale. I personally wouldn't go for any company that isn't offering over 30% commission per sale, unless price of product or service is high priced.
