Today’s post and Podcast Episode comes from several recent discussions with community members on how to get started, how to keep going and what it takes to succeed in affiliate marketing.

The Podcast Episode will be your best resource, as I go into full detail and provide specific examples along the way, so be sure to listen in.  However, I will also include a very brief summary below, for you to refer back to.

How To Succeed in Affiliate Marketing

The initial step is to brainstorm potential ideas on what interests you and decide on a topic or topics that you think you will be able to continue to create content around over the long haul.

Be thinking in terms of not only what topics interest you, but also how you can help others solve a problem, overcome a pain point, or achieve a particular goal on that topic.


The vast majority of folks fail due to 3 main reasons:

  1. Lack of effort
  2. Unrealistic expectations
  3. Lack of support

If you put in the work over the long term, have realistic expectations and have a group of like minded folks that can help provide support and motivation along the way, you’re well on your way to success.

Our Niche Site Tools Private Facebook Mastermind Group is a great place to network with like minded folks.

It is all about PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it is more important to get the content out there and make things better as you go.

Every time you create a piece of content, think of it as planting a seed that will take time to grow, but it will pay off in the future.


You never know when that breakthrough will take place, but one thing is certain, if you give up along the way, you’ll never know what could have been.  In many cases, a breakthrough is just beyond that barrier in front of you.


Get started, take action today and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised what you can accomplish!
