Over the last ten years there has been a surge in popularity for people looking to make money online and affiliate marketing is one of the methods which is commonly used. Today we’ll look at why many people don’t get the results they want from it and show you the simple steps which should help you to determine whether this is an area you want to pursue.
Like anything in life, for every five claims of life changing success you’ll surely be able to find five hundred claims of absolutely no results whatsoever.
Why does this happen? Today we’re going to show you and by the end of this post you should be able to make an educated decision for yourself. The main reasons for failure are written below.
* Their sponsor doesn’t support them, despite often claiming they’d do the opposite.
* The person has no interest in their business.
* The age old rule of business pops up again. People simply don’t work hard enough.
It might look easy written up there but those three steps trip up just about everybody in the home based business industry at some point.
The ace up the sleeve of the industry in general, naturally, is the massively appealing fact that absolutely anyone can reach success if they are prepared to get serious with their efforts to become their own boss. Once you get past all of the whining and looking for excuses, you’re left with the fact that it’s just like any other business in that you must work hard to see results.

The part where most of us get lost, however, is being able to find the fine lines between success and failure. Those who are able to get the most out of their affiliate marketing business are not geniuses, they are regular people just like you. They’re just doing one small thing differently to the majority.
It’s the people who are actively working on their business every day of the week who tend to see positive results. If you want to become your own boss so you can ‘kick back and relax’ then you have a false idea of what it’s really like. It can be non-stop at times.
When you think about it, it’s self explanatory. In order to truly work for yourself you need to be prepared to actually work for yourself.
Rules number two and three are by far the most common reasons for failure to achieve online business goals. The first rule, while still important, is something which can be easily overcome just by being serious and taking responsibility for yourself.
Keep your brain fully engaged to avoid the typical hype you’ll encounter online. Every opportunity presents itself as the next big thing and it’s likely you’ll be tempted to fall for it a few times unless you look at potential businesses the same way you’d look at a business move in the everyday offline world.
If you can’t resist the temptation which will be constantly put under your nose by ‘Gurus’ trying to temp you with promises of easy, life altering financial rewards you will not get far. There isn’t much luck involved in becoming your own boss.
Until you get out of that mentality it will continue happening to you.
Whether you opt to use an affiliate program like Empower Network or Mary Kay will ultimately be decided by your personal taste, nothing more, so it’s important that you are also able to see the risks involved in affiliate marketing and why most people struggle with it. Now that you do, you should know whether you believe you have what it takes to make money online or not.
