Affiliate Marketing Success Test
Affiliate Marketing is simply the selling of products or services for others for an agreed upon commission. The concept is ridiculously simple; but, the successful practice of the task can try the patience of a saint.
I cannot begin to count the number
of times I have run to my computer to check my stats for the day, only
to find I have had no sales, nobody signed up for my mailing list and
I only had a handful of visitors to my website. Then I checked my email
and waded through the offers from other affiliate marketers that claimed
to have made thousands of dollars that day and if I would only sign
up, I could have enjoyed the same success. I have to admit I have succumbed
to such messages several times, especially when I am having a particularly
I am always scouring the internet
for what other marketers are doing. What are the hot programs; what is
and what isn't working for others? Unfortunately or fortunately; depending

little test shows that you and only you dictate your future. The past
is past and cannot be changed. Once you moved the pencil to the right
or left, you could not go back to the middle again because it was in

failed; when actually you only had an unfavorable outcome.
