It is so true, many online business people start out with great expectations joining all the affiliate programs they can.
They reason that a supermarket is better than a specialized shop.
That is true offline, but online niche marketing is the thing that makes money. You have to target your client with pin point accuracy. Then give them what they looking for.
Offline – many options makes for a great shopping experience
online – many options makes for confusion!
Affiliates who specialize and target a niche will make money sooner or later .. hopefully sooner.
Really enjoying your posts.

We agree with Brian and found out the hard way that too many were going out of business faster than we could go in but finally found one that has not gone out of business that is doing very well for us. Thank YOU Reed.
As I always pray, get in touch with content and act only when you have read the overhyped Sales of curds and is gone by. No one is telling the poor tobeaffiliates what is coming on them. Which avalanche of workload has to be done to be an working affiliate. Brian Carelse in his comment is absolutly right. To be an affiliate he should know at least something about the product he is supporting and keeping in mind ” support is not affiliate “. The background in your Blog is the fear that someone is getting the point who is the winner ? Only the owner of the product and not the affiliate with his work !!!
You cover some good points about affiliate marketing. I find myself getting envolved in too many affiliate markets. It would be better to get involved with fewer and concentrating on the better ones.

Reed, your words are very true. It seems rather annoying indeed to read blogs where virtually every blog article is a review of some product. Seems like some of the awful review sites that may generate revenues from beginners, but long-term everyone loses…
I also prefer slow but steady growth, and I have found that only in months where economy was an issue sales ARE dropping. When we maintain a positive outlook on life everything works. So, somehow, our mental perspective shines through what we write.
Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂

I cannot agree more than with point 3 that has to be the most important point that has been published on the blog Reed.
I cannot stand the fact that you can get upto 10 identical emails for the same product launch within hours. It makes you want to unsubscribe from marketers lists.
No matter how much you respect them or like their products.
Kenny Ritchies last blog post..Two easy to make research mistakes
Quit talking about me like that,just kidding, Even though I have trodden the very path you speak of. Now through trial and many errors I have made my choices and truly plan to stick to them. Yes I still have more than one, but they are totally different aspects of the Market and I have the knowledge and the drive to do both. One will feed the other as I progress
“To The Top” Have a wonderful Day Reed.
Timothy Millars last blog post..I am not doing this
Reed this is good information for the affiliate marketing novice, as well as others who are not having the success they desire. I believe in promoting three products and no more than that to start with. After that you can expand your efforts to engage a larger audience.
It is a GREAT post.
Sadly theses are 3 common mistakes that most affiliates make and for this reason they don’t make any money.
I have to confess that I made the mistake number 2 when I first got started, I joined a lot of affiliate programs thinking that I would make more money.
Of course, the end result was that I didn’t make any money. Fortunately I realized that I was doing the wrong thing and I changed my approach.
So, if you are getting started read very well this post because it could save you time and money.
I am glad you have underlined the position I am happen to be in at the moment.I started with a great product from Michael Cheney back in May this year and have entered into two or three membership sites and bought around $3000 to $4000 of online products and tools they recommend etc and I have yet to complete Cheney’s training programm ! I wish I had just stuck with that but I’m sure 99.99% of us fall prey to the bug of wanting to find that system thats going to fit us like a glove.I don’t regret what Ive bought because that lesson has to be learnt in one way or another, I now have to focus on my marketing
gloves…one for each hand and opt out of a couple of membership sites and re-invest those funds into my two chosen area’s.Glad I opted into yours by the way 🙂
I’ve done both of the first 2, but pray tell, how do you try out a program before you buy it?
Good Post. For those who are just getting started Reed is one to follow stick around and
you will get educated by a good teacher who’s
very sincere about helping others travel down the right path.

It is exactly as you say,I have made that same mistake.Having a Web Store (if that is what it is called),I need to add content to many pages and to get content and banners etc for those products it seems that you need to join as an affiliate.Having purchased many products (most of which have not helped me at all),tools, affiliate programs and freebies,one eventually ends up with an overload of e-mails and info.With all this overload and not knowing who or what product to trust and all the frustration I then “threw in the towel”.Having done this I eventually realised I need to go back to the “drawing board” and not give up halfway.
Maybe many have gone though the same frustrations as I have we need to do as you have said, slowly and steadily and step by step.
Thanks again Reed,
Still regularly hitting my No1 most visited blog, Reed, and for good reason. Another excellent post (Focus IS the key) – keep ’em coming!
Fantastic – my cloud is clear
@Ivan thank you
@Brian agreed you need to pin-point your customers
@Ginger I don’t think I’ve used PPCBully so can’t give an opinion.
@James and Helen glad you found something successful
@Peter I actually believe the affiliate and the merchant both win from affiliate programs however the merchant generally wins more
@normz2 yes it would be better to concentrate on those that are making money for you
@Henrik yeah it’s amazing how many “review” site there are out there and they are mostly just to sell
@Kenny I’ll agree that does get annoying but it’s a strategy that works really really really well for the product owners
@Timothy we all make mistakes I make them all the time if we aren’t making mistakes we aren’t succeeding you can achieve your dreams!
@Matthew thanks keep us posted on your success
@PV thank you
@Rick I agree I think most people are looking for that “magic pill” and it makes it really hard to succeed when you are constantly searching
@Ouida if you can prove that you can make sales for them then generally you can get a free copy
@James thank you
@Michelle thank you
@Thomas that is very true
@Eric keep coming back there’s plenty more to come
@Wayne thank you
@Barry yes I think many people fall for that same “scam” if you will and it makes it really hard to succeed
@Richard thank you 🙂
@Shiva you are welcome
Great article, dude. I joined way too many affiliate programs and STILL do. But also, if I specialize a bit and provide a different DEAL for customers, it works fine. For example, incentivization like giving away 397 dollars worth of software to anyone who purchases the main product through my affiliate link. Bonuses work to differentiate you from ten thousand other affiliates.
@Geoff glad to hear you do bonuses that is a fantastic way to stand out.
I love your blog Reed. Keep up the good work. Great post!
