What is the affiliate marketing failure rate?

I read recently that the failure rate for online entrepreneurs and affiliate marketing failure rate is as high as 99%. I actually found this statement in the Facebook group of Joel Therien.

Is it so?

But is The Percentage That High? I am not quite sure what the failure percentage is, but it probably could be 99%. However, that does not matter really. Because as I have written several times before, it is important to learn from our mistakes so that we can get better at what we are doing… And if the percentage of failing is 99%, then you realize that it’s not something to be ashamed of when failing.Because everyone fails. But it is what you do with the learning from these mistakes that really matters.Are you going to repeat them or will you make sure to never do those mistakes ever again?I would go for the last option. Do you have a fear of failing? Do you look upon failure as a negative experience? Are you feeling that you are learning from your mistakes?

Breakthrough or to quit?

Those who refuse to give up and quit on their dreams are the ones that wins this battle that has to do with how to handle failures and setbacks. Those who takes failures too personal they might actually quit on their dreams and online marketing. You do not have to see failure as a negative event, as long as you learn from your mistakes, so that you will never do those mistakes again…

You are not alone

You are not alone going through failures or making mistakes. This is normal and a important step towards your breakthrough and success. So do not be ashamed of making mistakes and going through those failures. Because I am sure you have heard about the expression; ”fail forward”? So,you need to fail every now and then to learn more about what works in marketing ,so that you get closer to your breakthrough. If someone tells you that they never make mistakes, then they are lying to you. Everyone fails at some point.

We of course do not want to fail all the time, but it is normal to make mistakes every now and then. And it is really a learning experience, because it is through learning from mistakes that we move forward in our journey.

Digital marketing lies you should be aware of

Digital marketing lies.

There are quite many lies that goes around within marketing. I will now reveal some digital marketing lies that I think you should be aware of.

There are different so called push button software’s out there that promises more or less instant riches. This is misleading hype and yes.. lies. The product creators is playing on peoples desperation and need for money. It is seldom possible to make instant or fast money online, it takes work, patience and time. I am not here to point the finger or to bad talk anyone, but I feel like I need to share what I have noticed in the so called online marketing space.

They leave that out

I have seen many products where they claim that you can make thousand of dollars through free traffic. You only need to use the social sharing buttons within the product and share your link to your offer and then the money soon will be coming into your bank account. This does not work, it is possible that you can make a few sales this way but it will take time, a lot of time. The creators of these products are leaving some pieces out of the product, to make it possible for you to make any significant income with their product. And one part is quality traffic and paid traffic. Okay within some products they may offer some type of paid traffic, but in most cases they just offer this free traffic by sharing your link on social media through these social sharing buttons.

The reasons for it…

So why do these product creators leave pieces out when creating their products? It is because they want to make more money. They might launch other products that offers the pieces that was missing in their earlier products. Do not get me wrong their are legit products, products that really works, but there are also plenty of products out there that do not live up to its promises. And that are making unrealistic claims on their sales pages. You should also know that scarcity is something that is often used on sales pages. Some claims are true and some are not. Sometimes it says that the sellers/ affiliates bonuses will be removed at a certain date, and sometimes they will be removed then. But in many cases the bonuses will remain there no matter what. Or they may say that the price will be going up soon, and that is sometimes not the case either.

If it looks too good to be true

There is this saying; ”if it looks too good to be true then it usually is”. And that is the truth. if something sounds way to easy or way to good regarding how much money you will make and how fast you can make it then think twice before buying that product.

Yes there are many hyped up product that does not live up to their promises but again, there are many products, good products that truly works. So do your research and use your logical thinking before you buy any product.
