Are you still into affiliates? If so, what specific product/s are you promoting?
Affiliate Marketing is one of, if not somewhat the easiest, but also the first business marketing people online tend to indulge since it doesn't cost you any money (well sometimes it does if you wish to start earning asap) to start with. You can just simply go to any marketing website, pick a product or products, get their affiliate links and promote them. Easy passive income right?
The best thing about Affiliate Marketing is that you are earning money even while you are sleeping. The more products that you have promoted, the more sleep you get! LOL! But to be a successful affiliate marketer, you must achieve some of the basic goals and requirements:
You must be a member of whatever online marketplace you are trying to get into - each site has a minimum requirement to be an affiliate; some require 3 months, while some other require 6 months. These are what I have observed.
According to some of the online marketplace, you should also have good track record and a clean and legit account.
You also need to have a good reputation on the community.
You should be available almost 24/7 for customer support since you would probably be selling internationally as well.
You are willing to risk your own money if in case some undesired things happen.
There are still a lot of factors to consider and requirements to achieve. Some of them are mandatory, some are optional. Either way, it's always nice to have them all since at the end of the day, you are the one who would benefit from it.
I would love to hear your testimonials and success stories when it comes to Affiliate Marketing.
