Here’s a quick, eye opening way to tell if you are setting yourself up for long term success in affiliate marketing…. Go out and try and sell your affiliate products to someone outside the “make money online” world. Most business owners in the brick and mortar world would look at you like you have 2 heads, because quite frankly, most affiliate marketing programs do not translate at all to the “real world.” Most affiliate marketing programs today really only serve the people in that particular opportunity. This is becoming more and more of a problem because there are now too many of these “make money” opportunities and too few people chasing them.
So whats the solution to this growing problem and how do we set ourselves up for long term success in affiliate marketing?
Back to that question in just a minute…
Did you know that only 1% of the money being spent on the internet on a daily basis comes from people purchasing products and opportunities in the “home based business” or “make money online” space? Its still an enormous number, but factor in millions of people in the space and new “make money” programs popping up every single day and you can see that there are a ton of marketers and affiliate marketing programs fighting for just that 1% of the entire pie. This leaves you to only market in one tiny world of business opportunity seekers where there is massive competition and advertising costs are going through the roof…
On top of that, think about the fact that most of these affiliate marketing programs online, that are in the “make money world,” rely solely on email marketing to reach prospects, a communication medium that is becoming less and less effective.
Let me explain….
Email deliverability, email open rates and email engagement rates are falling off a cliff right now… FAST
Less of your emails are even arriving.
Less of your emails are even being opened.
Very few are engaged because the great majority today only skim emails because they get hundreds per day
Email open rates down from 40% is 2004 to less than 10% in 2013.
80% of emails are now being marked as spam.. Even if they’re not spam!
Its another HUGE, growing problem that is making it harder and harder for the average person to have success in affiliate marketing.
So whats the solution? How do we combat these problems to set ourselves up for profitability and success in both the short-term and the long term?
