Actually, most people who try affiliate marketing make very little or nothing at all.

It takes time and effort to learn how to build a profitable site. If you stick with it, when most give up, you'll make it to the small but happy group who make a good living with affiliate marketing.

That's the key.

Good luck.

Ok, you've asked two main questions:

1) Too much competition? No there isn't. In fact I look at competition as a good thing because it means money is being made. The potential in affiliate marketing is huge.

2) The keys to affiliate marketing are:

Investing in good, structured, training.

Engaging in ongoing personal development. It's your responsibility to develop the correct mindset and maintain your motivation.

Be consistent, persistent and NEVER give up

Hi AllanJames, Good answer!

Affiliate marketing is a multi-BILLION-dollar industry. Affiliates have thousands of affiliates programs and millions of products to choose from, with new niches and new sub-niches cropping up all the time.

As in offline world, many people give up far too easily.

If you're really determined to succeed, keep learning something new every day, and keep doing something every day to improve your business, you'll improve your chances exponentially.

No. Its not true. Affiliate marketing is easy and totally depend on your website traffic. If your website get 70% quality traffic through any way just like referral, organic, paid or other way then you get maximum conversion and commission through affiliate marketing.

Yes there are tons of competition, rarely does an affiliate marketer make loads of money off this industry but some might actually make money but not as much as most would lead you to believe.

Affiliate marketing is well and good but there are far better ways of earning than them.

Indeed, there is a lot of competition on the affiliate marketers playground, but there is still plenty of room for others...

Most people start an affiliate program but will quit after a short period of time because of the lack of instant results and success.

If you want to achieve success and make money you need to be determined and consistent in your work and marketing campaign.

Yes, there's a lot of competition, and yes, it helps hugely if you follow a proven plan.

You can also increase your chances of success by studying what successful affiliates do. That's why I'm publishing a series of affiliate success stories.

Yesterday I watched a question and answer session given by Elad Shippony, who has been a full-time affiliate for nine years, and lives in a home bought with his online earnings.

He doesn't have any products himself - he gets enough traffic to his sites to earn a living from AdSense, affiliate commissions and other advertising.

During the live interview, he went into Google Analytics and showed us the screen shot of more than 1,800 people on one of his sites right at that moment. His daily visitor number was MUCH higher than that. He gets phenomenal traffic around Halloween time.

Did he write most of those pages? No, he didn't. He runs competitions and gets his website visitors to write pages for him.

As they say, success leaves clues.

I've put the recording of the interview at the bottom of an article I wrote on Elad's success...

Hi Allan,Thanks for your prompt reply.I agree that we can learn from the successful affiliate marketers and I also read some your affiliate success stories.The only thing that made me so much confused a number of times due to the vast information different affiliate marketers provide or share.
