This article is a sequel to my first article entitled “Affiliate Marketing: How To Start And Succeed To Make Money Online”. My purpose in writing this second article is to expose and correct the single most destructive misconception about making money online with affiliate marketing. A misconception which is being peddled online by so called experts or “gurus” as gospel truth and which unfortunately many beginners swallow hook, line and sinker leading to financial losses and a lot of frustration. Instead of making money online, most beginners end up losing their hard earned money to these unscrupulous marketers who promise heaven and earth when selling their money machine software.The biggest misconception!Affiliate Marketing is quick and easy. Work from home, spend a few hours a day on your computer, dish out a few emails and then watch your money machine roll in the cash. No website, no skills, no list needed.The truth!Affiliate Marketing is NOT quick and easy. It is not a get rich quick scheme. You cannot be a millionaire overnight. There is no such thing as a money machine which can automatically produce tons of money for you daily, weekly and monthly while you go sunbathing on an exotic beach. The only reason these experts tell you how easy it is to make money with affiliate marketing – is because they are selling you a product which very often is a dud.Making money online with affiliate marketing requires some new skills which must be learned first. There is a system, a process, a method, a road map to making money online which must be learned and understood. Many fail because they do not understand what they are doing. Eager to make money online quick, they fall victims to information overload, gorging as much information as they get their hand on… going through hundreds of emails every day. The end result – CONFUSED! FRUSTRATED!Making money online is not just having a web site or a product to sell. There are millions of websites and many people with great products but not making any money. The CUSTOMER is the business. You need to build and develop a network, a LIST of customers. Your income will come from your list of customers. You cannot make money by just driving traffic to a sales page. You must build a network of customers, develop a relationship with them and thence after, market related products to them.To make money on line with affiliate marketing, you must therefore know what exactly to do and in what order. You must have a “structure”, a step-by-step plan of what to do and in what order.I highly recommend that you join a reliable, honest-to-goodness affiliate marketing membership site which can take you by the hand step-by-step through the whole making money online process and along the way learn the necessary new skills. There are many membership sites out there, some good, some not so good, and some bad ones. At the end of this article, is a link to a membership site I highly recommend, this is where I started and until now am still a member of, learning new skills every time – like creating a fantastic fan page for Facebook.Yes, you can have a successful online business and make good money as an affiliate marketer but you must start on the right foot.
