5 Tips to become an Unsuccessful Affiliate

Posted March 30th, 2011 | Posted In Affiliate Tips

We have decided to make a better effort to inform our affiliates and on occasion provide useful content that they can use to help grow their marketing efforts, website or blog. So lets get this started with 5 Tips to Become an Unsuccessful Affiliate. You read it right an unsuccessful affiliate… why would we do that… well read the article and I can almost guarantee that you are doing 1 of the 5 things. Or if for some reason you don’t want to be a successful affiliate this will help you get there. :)

1. Procrastinate as Much as You Can
We put off so many things these days as we always have something vying for our attention. So if you want to be unsuccessful put it all off until tomorrow. Why not as there will always be tomorrow so why do it today? Make that post that could make you money wait till tomorrow (it doesn’t matter if it’s a hot offer and will be gone tomorrow then you can just not post about another offer). Should I make a Facebook page for my site? …Naaa… Facebook will be around tomorrow.

2. Just Post Every Offer on Your Site as a Banner.
Just get those offers posted as a banner, and then forget them as quickly as possible. It doesn’t matter that you have new visitors everyday, why would you want to inform them about great offers and make a lot of money each day when you can do nothing and might make a $1.00 in a month?

3. Read About Great Ways to Promote Offers but Never Do Them.
That’s right, read every blog post out there. Get all that great information then sit in your office chair reading more blogs about how to make more money or better engage with your audience. Just keep reading and clicking all day then before you know it all you will have done is read great posts and have done nothing else.

4. Never Change Anything.
You want to be unsuccessful, so don’t change a thing. Who cares if your site looks like it was made on Geocities… or every single image on your page is animated… people love things that never change… this will guarantee you to be unsuccessful!

5. Ignore Emails and Advice from your Affiliate Manager
Your affiliate manager knows the ins and outs of the affiliate business, plus they know what offers are converting like fire and which ones aren’t doing so well. Plus if you never communicate with your affiliate manager how are they going to know what you need to be successful? If your goal is to be unsuccessful, you should just ignore any and all advice that comes from your affiliate manager.

In all seriousness, I hope none of you ever do these 5 things listed above because they will cause you to be unsuccessful and we want you to succeed. We want you to provide your visitors with offers that are relevant and useful to them and make you money along the way. Do you have some really bad advice that no successful affiliate should follow?
