Listen, this post is a bit of a rant, but if you’ve ever thought about “taking a break” from affiliate marketing and trying it again later then you need to read this post!
Affiliate Marketing is not easy to get started in, in fact, it’s actually quite difficult for most people. Of course, there are those rare occasions where someone launched a campaign and see immediate positive results…(like me 😀 ) However, this is very few and far in between. Most people start off losing money, that’s just me being honest my friends! 😀
However, if you are serious about doing this and making a living by working from home online, then you can’t quit. If you truly are passionate about affiliate marketing then again, don’t quit!
This business changes rapidly, in fact pretty much any online type business does, but it seems that daily there is something crazy going on in the affiliate marketing space. You took all the time to learn, read, etc about affiliate marketing and if you “take a break” you are going to throw that all away.
Now I’m not saying if you run out of money to just keep charging away, but don’t stop reading, studying niches, etc. Why? Because if you do, you’ll come back later only to realize that you’re basically starting from scratch! I’m not kidding, that’s how fast things can change in this field. Of course, you may still remember the basics, but that’s about it.
There are new types of landing pages, new techniques, new search engine requirements, etc that don’t stop changing and evolving while you’re “taking a break” from affiliate marketing and when you come back it will suck having to relearn how to do affiliate marketing…
I’ve seen it time and time again and in fact one of the reasons for this post is because I just had someone that emailed me about a one on one counseling session and they had done just that and I decided to blog about it. And the crazy thing is, it’s not something new, I’ve heard people tell me this over and over that have come to me for advice or counseling.
The bottom line is, even if you go broke and can’t run a campaign, keep up on what’s going on in affiliate marketing at all times…that is if you even think for a moment that you may try it again when you get some more money!
