Many have asked me this very question: “Why do some affiliates make less than $200 per month while the top affiliates go on to make as much as $3,000-$30,000 per month?”
The Truth of the matter is most affiliates are not willing to take the path that the top affiliates are taking to make such insane income. They want a get-rich quick system.This hardly works with affiliate programs. However, there is good news for affiliates who are willing to get their hands dirty a little bit. Successful affiliate marketing today is based on the following 8 factors.
A good friend of mine who is an affiliate applied it and made over $100,000 in pure profits from sales generated by him.
These factors seem so simple and are often neglected but they are immensely powerful once applied.
