Why It's Hard To Make Affiliate Income These Days
I realize this isn't the kind of heading that most helpful “how to” reports on making money
online start with. But do you want a normal report like all the others? Or do you want the
truth? Because I've got to tell you: Having people blow smoke up your butt with stupid claims
about what's possible... people who haven't made money as an affiliate since 2004... is not
what you need if you plan to ever have a profitable affiliate business.
There ARE some hard truths to be faced for affiliates at the moment, but only by facing them
can we continue to be owners of the coolest, most freeing kind of businesses in the world. If
you're trying to build a business as an affiliate right now, you can't afford NOT to know what's
in this report.
So in this first section I'm going to tell you two things: Why making money as an affiliate is
harder now than it once was, BUT why this is simultaneously, the biggest period of
opportunity for affiliate marketers in history. You ready? Here goes...
Affiliate Marketing Ain't What It Used To Be
Part 1: Search Engines
There's a lot of things that used to work in affiliate marketing, that don't work anymore. There
are a lot of things that you used to be able to do as an affiliate, that you can't do anymore.
Same goes for the search engines. The game's just different now.
It's almost impossible to create traditional “minisites” now – like, 5 page sites – and expect to
get decent traffic from the search engines. It's almost impossible to use nothing but scraped
content and expect it to generate rankings. You can't just submit articles to directories and get
overnight search engine rankings anymore. It's almost impossible to quickly slap up PPC
campaigns and be generating profits overnight now either. Heck it's tough to get traffic just
BEING an affiliate at Adwords anymore.
