Why Affiliate Marketers Fail On Their Own

Updated: Sep 28, 2022

After putting in countless hours, the average affiliate marketer only earns about $1,000 per year! And, the vast majority of affiliate marketers (85%) make far less than $500 per month,


There are a lot of affiliate marketers out there who are not successful. In fact, many of them fail miserably. Why? Because becoming an affiliate marketer is not as easy as it sounds. Sure, anyone can sign up to be an affiliate for a company. But actually making sales and generating commissions is a whole other story. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, patience, and tons of technical skills to become a successful affiliate marketer.

You need to have a good understanding of online marketing, know how to drive traffic to your affiliate links and have a lot of persistence. If you don’t have all of those things, you’re likely to fail as an affiliate marketer. And even if you do have all of those things, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be successful. The truth is, becoming a successful affiliate marketer is difficult.

Additionally, there are countless affiliate marketing programs available, each with its own set of rules and requirements - many that change rules overnight without notice!

Here are just 15 of the must-dos for affiliate marketing:

  1. Create compelling content that draws people in and encourages them to click through to your affiliate links.

  2. Use social media platforms to share your content and drive traffic to your website.

  3. Leverage influencers in your niche to promote your website and affiliate links to their followers.

  4. Run targeted ads on social media and search engines to reach people who are likely to be interested in your products or services.

  5. Participate in online forums and discussion groups related to your niche to build up your credibility and drive traffic to your website.

  6. Make sure your website is optimized for search engine ranking so that people can find it easily when they search for keywords related to your business.

  7. Use attractive visuals and engaging calls to action on your website to encourage people to click through to your affiliate links.

  8. Host webinars or podcasts on topics related to your niche and include your affiliate links in the resources section.

  9. Collaborate with other businesses in your niche to create joint marketing campaigns that include your affiliate links.

  10. Make it easy for people to sign up for your email list so they can receive updates about new blog posts and promotions for your affiliate products.

  11. Determine the target audience for the video.

  12. Reach that target audience.

  13. Drive conversions from view to purchasing.

  14. Highlight hot products that are trending and also pay the highest commission rate.

Because of these obstacles, it is estimated that only about 1% of affiliate marketers are truly successful. These statistics show that it can be difficult to become a successful affiliate marketer.
