I have come to the conclusion that in order to be successful in affiliate marketing you absolutely must have a mentor, whether its through webinars, videos, programs you sign up for, whatever it is do not go it alone. I have spent years working on this unsuccessfully when if I had just bitten the bullet and broken loose with a little bit of cash I would have been successful a long time ago.
I will say that money does talk to me, and some programs, although I am sure they are incredible have just priced me right out of the market. And I know you have also experienced the upsell where to really get a product that will do what you need it to you have to buy the Pro or Elite version, whatever the creator has chosen to call it.
This past year I changed my way of thinking about it and I started really looking at new opportunities (not the same old crap) but things I thought would benefit me and even though it cost a lot of money I took the plunge. I’ll give you and example.
I have been fascinated with chat bots, when I’m online and having difficulties and the opportunity to chat pops up I am all over it. You can get your problem resolved in minutes instead of days on many sites.
When I had an opportunity to buy a program where I could create bots, not only for my own websites, but to build for other businesses I was very excited. Then I looked at the price and it was a bit over budget, but the creators (I communicate mostly with Simon Wood) were smart enough to offer a 3 payment program spread out over 3 months. That I could afford to do. I have chat bots now in my store and on my other website and I will have one here soon.
