Affiliate marketing has been surrounded by many myths, and in the following article we will be uncovering a few of them. For example if you’re selling a product in the Mass Cash Coverup niche then you should try to explain the benefits rather than going for the features.

A big myth that surrounds affiliate marketing is that you have to have lots of money upfront to make money. Affiliate and internet marketing in general have dozens of success stories, you wouldn’t believe some of the backgrounds and obstacles that some of our fellow marketers have overcome; the good news is that you can do it to. You don’t have to pay for traffic to actually start earning with affiliate marketing. If you can’t afford or don’t want to learn PPC then you are free to make videos, and post to forums in your niche, and learn to article market. It doesn’t take a capital to get to ball rolling in affiliate marketing. Free traffic is good and it can be done in many effective ways. A prime example of free traffic is writing articles and submitting them to Ezine Articles and then optimizing the article so it will rise in the search engines and get even more exposure. But there will be a time when you will want to enhance your affiliate business and take it to the next level, this is when you will be required invest your money to get traffic from pay per click advertising, media buying, etc. Whether you decide to outsource or jump into paid traffic, both have its pluses and minuses. Even small improvements here and there will take you a long way over time. In this business it is not hard to succeed because most of the competition aren’t goal oriented, like you are. Many people confuse affiliate marketing for advertising. Affiliate marketing is the ultimate form of leverage for a product owner who wants more revenue for less investment. Your advertising dollars can diminish very quickly because you are paying each time someone clicks on an ad or sometimes for space that doesn’t convert viewers into buyers. But when you have affiliates marketing your product, you only pay when they get you a sale/lead/click. This is the extreme safety net and form of leverage in the online marketing world. So running an affiliate program is a cost effective way to get your product in front of a large audience, without any upfront costs. For instance, let’s say you’re selling an ebook about List Building Automation then you should first tell about it before going into the advantages of buying it.

Banners are a thing of the past, so do all of your visitors a favor and leave them there. This myth is prevalent among new affiliates because they don’t know any better. You are not running a casino; you are trying to run a converting website. Keep the shining banners off of your site because you will lose more visitors, instead focus on content that has the purpose of informing the reader about how your site can solve their problem. These are only a few of the myths that you will encounter, there are many more where these came from.
