Find A Mentor
Trying to go it alone in the affiliate marketing business is very difficult, if you can find a good mentor to guide you then you have a much better chance of being successful.
A mentor can be someone you already know or someone you meet online or even a training program like Wealthy Affiliate, the key is that they have been where you are now and they know what works and what doesn’t work so they can pass that knowledge on to you then you can avoid the mistakes that they made along the way.
I myself have had several mentors over the years and I can say that without them I wouldn’t have had the success I have had as an affiliate marketer.
I also mentor several students within the Wealthy Affiliate platform, if you would like to be mentored by myself you can sign up for a free Wealthy Affiliate membership. Just click here to read my Wealthy Affiliate Review and claim your free membership.
Success doesn’t come overnight it takes a lot of time and effort, researching products – writing reviews – making YouTube videos.
You will find that you trip and fall but it’s important to pick yourself up and keep going because in this game your always learning.
I was trying and failing for the first two years but I never quit because I knew I would get there eventually, it tuck a lot of trial and error but I found what works for me and I am consistent with it.
In any walk of life it takes time to learn and master these things and affiliate marketing is no different, it’s very important that you take the time to learn before you jump in with both feet.
Believe In Yourself
If you don’t believe in yourself then no one else is going to either, you must be confident to be successful in this business and confidence comes with self belief.
When I told my family I was trying to make a living online so that I could leave my 9-5 and spend my time at home with my family they all told me I was crazy to even try, they said you can’t make money online it’s a stupid idea and you can only make money by going to work every day.
I can’t blame them for thinking like this because this is what modern society brainwash people with because they need people to go work these horrible jobs in factories and warehouses for minimum wage, they don’t want people to know there’s another way a better way that there doesn’t have to be a set wage for each day because you can earn as much as you want to.
If I had listened to all my friends and family I would still be working in a foundry breaking my back every day for £10 an hour, thankfully I had the belief in myself that I could make it as an affiliate marketer and work from the comfort of my own home so I can see my children grow and spend my time with them.
My belief paid off because know I have that life that I was chasing, I get to spend my time with my family and all those people who told me I was being foolish are now asking me how I did it, asking me to mentor them so they to can leave there 9-5 and spend there time with there family.
I would like to end this article by telling you I know how it feels to go to work every day hating what you do because I did it for 20 years but you don’t have to live life like that, just have the belief in yourself and get started today because tomorrow never comes in business.
I know your probably sat there reading this thinking to yourself that you can’t do this because you don’t know how to write an article, well neither did I when I started but you learn as you go and the key to writing is to write as if your talking to a friend don’t try to over complicate it because it’s easier to read if you just write like your talking to a friend, I hope that makes sense to you.
I hope this has been helpful to you and please feel free to leave any questions you might have in the comments section below and I will get back to you.
