Affiliate Products What Is Their Failing

I’m sure you’ve read on more than one blog how the best way to make money is to have something to sell. They will then go on to tell you that even though you don’t have a product of your own, you can promote other peoples products as an affiliate. All true but while you can make money promoting other people’s products the amount of money you can make from promoting an affiliate product is very limited!

Let’s look at an affiliate marketer who has a list with a thousand subscribers. He’s just started using a new theme and he excitedly emails his subscribers telling them how great his new theme is. Let’s say that 10% of his subscribers click on the link. That means 100 people are now checking out his affiliate product. Now let’s say that 10% of those follow through and buy the theme. So out of the thousand subscribers he has made 10 sales! Now what?

In desperation he will email his list again, and again trying to sell the same product. After several attempts and banging his head against his keyboard he decides to promote other affiliate products thereby flooding his subscribers with more and more emails. This explains why you get so many of these emails in your inbox.

The Problem With Affiliate Products

This is true even of the so called pro bloggers. I’ve seen some who have promoted a particular theme saying it was the best ever theme. Then some time later I notice they now have a new theme which they are promoting. Is that because they no longer believe in their old theme or because sales of the old theme as stagnated and they had to do something to get more sales? What better way than by finding a new theme to promote.

I believe this to be greatest failing of promoting affiliate products. You will never make enough money promoting just one product. How long do you think a department store would last if all they sold was one product? Not very long at all! 

You Can Make Money As An Affiliate

So while you can make money selling affiliate products it will take a lot of effort and work. Naturally the more traffic you get and the bigger your list the greater the potential to make money. Being the person that I am I prefer finding easier ways to make money.

Dreamstime And Making Money

Ages ago I wrote a post on my Photo Blog called My Honest Evaluation Of Dreamstime. That was way back in 2010! Wow, I can’t believe it was that long ago. Anyway, I thought I would give them another go. Who knows, maybe my abilities as a photographer has improved in that time.

In my first upload of some thirty images they actually accepted three of them. The thing with Dreamstime is that they only accept quality images. Unfortunately a lot of the images I uploaded just were not good enough. Perhaps they were a tiny little bit out of focus, or perhaps the lighting was not quite right. I might even have inadvertently captured some trademark or other into the image that instantly disqualified it. Whatever the reason, rather than being disillusioned by it, which I was, I should have persevered until I improved my technique. 

To think that it took me 4 years to realise that.  :doh_tb: Here are the first photos accepted by Dreamstime.

Dreamstime, My Photos

I took this photo while visiting some aquarium or other. I don’t exactly remember where it was. I remember taking a few photos because the flash kept bouncing off the glass ruining the shot. From memory I resolved the issue by taking the shot at an angle. Read the rest of this entry
