Don't lose hope when you are not making sales

It is always important to sustain your hope even you are not making sales. Instead of brooding over the lack of sales you would do well to examine the marketing methods that you use to promote your product or service. Set them right and you will see the results in the form of sales! Try to read articles on the topics such as 'Mistakes That an Affiliate Marketer can Commit', 'Affiliate Marketing Mistakes', 'Affiliate Marketing Methods' etc to get an adequate knowledge about marketing products. Also read the lessons forwarded by reliable sites like Affilorama thoroughly to improve affiliate marketing skills. This is just a suggestion and nothing more than that! Thanks for reading.

Not just the marketing methods but the VALUE of your offer.

Ask yourself as a prospect.

If you are looking at that offer, do you want to buy immediately?

Anyway, thanks for your advice.

Tough time is part and parcel of everyone's life. If you know about the market strategy and its tools, then no one can beat you in sales. First understand what is sales and what tools are used for it?

Yes, well said! The idea that the affiliate should look upon himself as the prospect is really nice. At the end of the day I have the feeling that every affiliate program (product) has some value attached to it. Is that not so?

Mistakes are inevitable. In affiliate marketing, failures should not be regarded as a bad thing. Rather it should be treated as an opportunity to make changes- make further developments, better decisions, and as a learning curve to do things right.

Needed this. Still working on the first sale. Trying to learn more about promotion and building value. It's always nice to see somebody telling you to be patient and not lose confidence though.

My affiliate marketing website is now 7 months old. I did not get my first reported affiliate sale until yesterday and it came in a very bizaar way. Here is what the situation was:
My existing website at http://cloverchess had been using 4 types of affiliate links: Amazon, ShareaSale, Ebay, and House of Staunton. A few weeks ago Amazon cancelled my affiliate account due to lack of sales. I had all the Amazon links replaced with Ebay or something else. What else could I do?
I have long suspected that I have been getting cheated out of commissions from multiple places but lacked the hard evidence to prove it. A few weeks ago I even received an email from Ebay that specifically told me that some Ebay affiliates WERE being cheated.
The internet is poorly policed. There are quite a few dishonest affiliates who are gaming the system so the wrong affiliate gets credit for many sales. Sadly many are never caught until they have already stolen millions of dollars. There are also some greedy merchants who cheat as well. Some time ago I had nearly all of my ShareaSale links replaced. I wasn't confident that their system was safe against cheaters.
In the case of House of Staunton I noticed a problem that bothered me a great deal. I noticed that affiliate link clicks reported by Jetpack were not being reported at the merchant's website. At first I though this might be because some visitors to my site were blocking cookies. I later did some testing and discovered that affiliate link clicks were not being reported REGARDLESS of whether cookies were enabled or not.
I complained like hell about this problem. This led to an investigation of my affiliate account by the merchant. Within a few hours I received emails informing me that I was being credited with 2 affiliate sales I knew nothing about before.
I have worked my butt off for 7 months. I remain extremely skeptical that my affiliate marketing website will ever be profitable. The widespread cheating that goes on and the lack of effective policing doesn't help matters.

That is a very interesting outcome from your investigation, and shows everyone should keep up to date with the effectiveness of your links
Well done and keep up the good work---success will come eventually.
