There is a lot of crap online - tons. You CAN and WILL make money with affiliate programs but there are no easy short cuts or simple ways to get there. It's hard work, takes time, experience helps to weed out what works and doesn't, and basically you can't gain experience through books or online programs, you have to dig in and do it yourself.
That being said...
I have a very successful affiliate site. What makes sales are the "buying" keywords. So, you put lots of articles on your site to make the search engines happy so they don't think you're a spammer. But you target the buying keywords for selling your affiliate programs. You drive traffic through SEO.
Stay AWAY from PPC until you can afford to lose 100% of what you spend.
I think I am probably a good example of the struggling person who finally starts to see profits. I don't fall for crap anymore. Ok, well, maybe I wink at it now and then. (struggling for many many many years)
Last night I purchased a program from Brad Collen, Niche something, I forget. I looked it over today, it's only 7 bucks, but I am stopping my subscription now. Why? Because there is nothing in it for me. There is a huge catch to the PLR I really didn't like. You have to keep paying the $47.00 a month in order to retain the copyrights. Although you can buy those rights for 200.00 should you quite. It still bugged me.
It's PLR stuff. Far tooooooo much work. Now, remember, these programs can work well for some people. Who are those "some"? They are people that outsource EVERYTHING.
Outsourcing in the KEY TO SUCCESS. And, there some other things that have hit me over the head lately. The reason why these guys are selling the programs and tools to do the work for us is because the actual work is hard and it takes a lot of money to get it working right. It's way easier to sell the "system" or the program or the tools.
If you're not making sales, look at your keywords. Are any of them buying keywords?
Koi fish for instance. Selling an ebook on this the buying keyword would be, "Mr. Koi's ebook review". Or Mr. Koi's ebook. . . etc...
I have gone through about 10 people now and FINALLY I have a really good person I'm teaching to do more technical work for me. I'm at the point where I'm going to be outsourcing just about all my work and I get to just watch my business income grow with minimal work on my part. I just need to do the research and set up.
I put almost all of my online income into outsourcing. I also pay for a few programs like AMA.
If you're not making money, look at your sales page. Look over Marks videos and see what you may have missed.
Wishing you the best of succes,
