In article #6 I talked about how to avoid an affiliate marketing scam. In this article I  am going to go over how to be careful and successful with your affiliate marketing business.

A Great Business

Affiliate Marketing is a great business to be in. As an affiliate, you do work for another company,  but you are rewarded for your work. The money you make is based on your individual performance not an hourly or yearly salary Affiliate marketing provides many incentives to work harder and more efficiently. The harder and better you work, the more money and success you are likely to achieve. Affiliate marketing also reduces the amount of risk. The main company handles the advertising and creation of the product allowing you to move the product in whatever way you think best..

However, you do need to be wary in the affiliate marketing niche.

For every great, legitimate opportunity out there, there are more ready to con you out of your time and money.

The Internet has made it quite easy for these con artists to operate  and even thrive.

Don’t Go head First!!

Before you plunge headfirst into a new affiliate program you should do some checking.

A general rule of thumb is to never do business with anyone that isn’t easy to contact.

If you try to contact them about their program, and they don’t respond chances are, they will be the same when paying their affiliates.

Doing business with someone that you cannot contact makes it far too easy for them to take advantage of you.

Check Startup Costs..

If you find a company that you are interested in then check the start up costs. These should be minimal if any at all. 

If there are any start up costs ask is there is a way to pay back the start up costs through your sales commission. 

Most are willing to do this. However, if there seems to be a lot of initial money that needs to be paid by you then find something else. 

The chances are good that they will take your money and run, leaving you with worthless product.

Ask about Support..

Ask what support you will receive if you agree to become part of their affiliate marketing plan.

There should be someone there to guide you through the process and answer any questions that you have.

 They should also offer you advice on how best to market their product.

It is up to you in the end but they should offer you some start-up ideas. 

If they are a legitimate company they should want to help you all they can. The more you are able to sell the greater benefit for them as well.

Keep In Mind…

You should keep in mind that affiliate marketing takes work.

It is like any other business except that the risk to you is much lower.

Ignore companies that promise huge salaries with little effort, it just won’t happen.

Many people make great successes with affiliate marketing programs. However, they do work incredibly hard.

However, the rewards come when the hard work pays off. You’re the one that will reap the rewards, not your boss.


Affiliate marketing is a great way to start working for yourself.

With lots of hard work and creativity, you could be well on your way to great earnings doing something that you enjoy. 

It won’t be easy and in the beginning, you’ll have to work harder than you ever did in a full-time job. But if you’re driven it will all be worth it in the end.
