DOING THINGS THE HARD WAY
You know what sucks? Starting website after website that end up going nowhere. I’ve been there myself, confused and overwhelmed at the fact that I did everything right and things didn’t work.
I had a 9-5 job and started a blog to promote the business. It got some traction and I ended up quitting my job to try to do this on my own. Just like everyone online, I tried to do the affiliate thing and never made any amount worth writing home about. I failed. Hard. I was about to call it quits when I thought: “What if I turn ads on this thing? I wonder what would happen?”
The very next day, I made $176 and never looked back. Looking back at my experience, it’s easy to see why I was never successful until then. Putting it bluntly: Making it as an affiliate is way harder than you think and there’s a few reasons why.
It is very competitive
First thing is, everyone is doing it, making the affiliate game competitive, even for some long tail terms. Sometimes the whole page is 100% affiliate!
It gets worse, some sharp SEOs have partnerships with huge brands like Forbes, Britannica, even CNN. Since there’s only so many “Best XYZ” keywords to go around, it doesn’t take long before they start to eat your lunch. With endless resources, teams of writers and an unbeatable domain, there’s usually nothing you can do when they set their eyes on your keywords.
Google doesn’t like you much
That’s why going after non-competitive niches is a good idea, but in practice, Google isn’t particularly fond of affiliate sites. That’s why you can do all the right things, and yet never rank. And don’t get me started with algorithm updates, it’s always a bloodbath (Losses of 80-100%) in affiliate circles. Only those with teams and funds tend to survive.
It is time consuming
Creating the content isn’t fun either. Coming up with a list is easy but only 30% of the work. Laying out the tables, grabbing the affiliate links and adding all of those images is pretty complex and time consuming, especially when you are just starting and doing everything yourself.
Feast & Famine cycle
Even if you actually succeed (some do!) there’s the inconsistency you have to deal with. It’s a feast and famine cycle. One day you make $500 and weeks can pass by and you make $0, so this not for the faint hearted.
