Affiliate Marketing -Long-term value and residuals or short-term cash flow

I find affiliate marketing to be an often misunderstood phrase. So much so that I have found that it’s best not to tell my friends that I am involved in affiliate marketing. It simply saves a lot of misunderstanding and trying to explain how and why I’m not Ponzi selling or involved in some type of scam.

You either get affiliate marketing or you don’t. Most of my friends don’t. That’s not a problem.

What is a problem is that many people involved in affiliate marketing are so obsessed with the now, that they’re not preparing for the future. I get it. There’s nothing quite like getting the sugar hit of a quick sale, but one-off isolated sales are not the way to build a sustainable business.

Ultimately, people will buy from someone that they feel comfortable with. And they are far more likely to repeatedly buy from someone that they know, like and trust. Every affiliate marketer’s business is only as healthy as the goodwill that they generate.
The key is to cultivate and build relationships. Most people find that difficult. There is no immediate payoff, and often you can feel like you’re just treading water. It’s hard to keep the faith when there is so much noise around you, with everyone shouting out loud about how much money they’re allegedly making.

So, what’s the answer?

There isn’t a rolled gold foolproof method. What works for me might not necessarily work for you. BUT, there are some programs, platforms and habits that will help you to build for the long term, effectively by stacking and accumulating assets that could potentially accrue in value in the medium to long term.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Hive platform and developing the accumulation tactics that are recommended in a program like Click Track Profit. Evergreen products keep on keeping on. Evergreen strategies will stand up.

Focus on being true to yourself and your values and celebrate the smallest of victories.
