    Lightbulb Secret to be a Successful Affiliate Marketer
    After a few years under my belt, I have come up with a sure fire way to be successful at affiliate marketing. It took a while, but the strategy is quite simple to follow. I can teach you how to be successful at it in under 1 minute.

    Ready?


    Don't be an affiliate marketer!


    I know what your thinking, "why didn't I think of that?". It's ok because now you know.

    So, your new strategy is to discourage competition, and eventually have a monopoly on affiliate marketing?

    LOL, I was thinking the same thing. When I first came to this site and was seeing all the chatter about joining this and selling that I was thinking to myself... hmmm I spend all my time building my site, updating, link baiting, writing, adding content... Who the heck has time putting up affliate links then yanking them down... join this site/ join that site.... oh what, they are cheating, take them down... blah blah blah. I honestly don't know how people do it.

    Many days affiliate marketing does seem to be futile especially with so many merchant sites unable to convert.

    At least Seymour's book, "Secret to be a Successful Affiliate Marketer", will be cheap to print!

    I'm starting to RE-Prioritize my revenue stream on my sites.

    Some great affiliate programs have gone the way of the DOGS in the last year or so.

    Used to think I knew it all, but have found myself trying to learn new tricks.

    Damned Internet anyway~

    I may have to find a REAL JOB SOON~

    YIKES!

    Why print? E-book format is cheaper still and distribution is so much easier!

    That may be so, but if he prints it he can autograph copies at a book signing event at his local bookstore

    Seymour, it amazes me how you've been so consistent in your negativity towards affiliate marketing since joining ABW. While we've all tried to offer words of wisdom, advice or encouragement, you never did find a way to make it work and can now claim that you were right all along. Wow - you fulfilled your doomsday prophecy beautifully! Well done.
    Peace,

    I guess your comment would be a good example of one of those "words of encouragement" that you speak of?

    You know, it is possible for something to just not work regardless of words of wisdom, advice, encouragement, and countless hours of devotion. I did and still do appreciate the wisdom and advice from members here at ABW.

    Doomsday you say? Hardly. This was merely a hobby that I got involved in. Three years later, I have accepted that it will be nothing more than a hobby because there is little chance of making enough profit to be called anything else.

    If nothing more, you should appreciate my consistency on the subject.
