Affiliate Marketing Millionaire Myth 
 
Despite the claims of many online gurus, most people fail at affiliate marketing online. By fail, I mean they do not make enough money with affiliate marketing to be able to afford the mythical Internet Lifestyle with sport cars and huge villas.

Yet every day you will read another sales letter making claims about how you can make a fortune without a website, without an opt-in email list, and without a product of your very own.

Now to some extent, those claims are true. But what they fail to tell you, is that you must have systems set up in order for you to be able to succeed. Without those systems, the sad fact of the matter is, most affiliate marketers (especially those who are new to the Internet or are just starting out) do not have any of the necessary tools in place to make real money.

To top it all off, most people who are attracted to affiliate marketing just do not have the resources they need be successful in their endeavors. They do not have the appropriate training, nor do they have any knowledge about marketing in general. They, therefore, lack the skills that are needed to be able to drive traffic to the products they are promoting via their affiliate links.

Which brings up another point. The traffic acquisition cost is dependent on how much the affiliate marketer is getting paid for each successful transaction.

When the product an affiliate marketer is promoting costs only $25, for example, and the affiliate commission is only 50%, that does not leave very much money for the affiliate marketer to spend on driving traffic through their affiliate link. Especially if they hope to make any profit at all. Which is another way of saying that the profit margins are so low to begin with, it is almost impossible for affiliate marketing to generate any serious income.

What about those high-ticket items which seem to be launched every other week?

Not only does the beginning affiliate marketer have to compete with well established gurus for the affiliate marketing dollar, but the beginner's lack of status in the marketplace almost ensures that nobody will be making a high-dollar purchase through their affiliate link.

The Truth: It's hard as hell... especially in the beginning you need to work your ass off like a maniac, learn how to build websites, how to drive traffic, how to convert visitors to buyers, develop your own product (no, selling someone else's product doesn't work 90% of the time), hone your skills, and compete with 100,000 people trying to do just the same.

Verdict: +Huge $$$ Potential if you know what you're doing - time consuming - hard to master - expensive (product development, website costs, advertising expenses and much more. Getting rich overnight? Forget it.
