    Keyword stuffing anyone?  Just about every sentence of the original post contains either "affiliate marketing"  or "affiliate marketer" or both. I hate to be a stick in the mud but if you're going to share something on a forum, it should be written with the audience in mind and not the search engines.  See Google's April 24 blog post: Another step to reward high-quality sites.  "We see all sorts of webspam techniques every day, from keyword stuffing to link schemes that attempt to propel sites higher in rankings."  

    That said, I participate in a couple affiliate programs but I have most success with amazon.  I think that part of the success has to do with three basic points:  know what you are promoting, know who you are trying to reach and add value when creating content.

    Common Affiliate Marketing Mistakes

    Affiliate marketing is one of the most powerful ways to earn money online.  An affiliate can leverage the hard work of someone’s product mastery to earn money.  This gives the affiliate a very low-cost entry to create product-related income.  There is no product development for the affiliate or cost of goods sold.  The only cost, is the cost to market, and there are many low cost ways to market.

    So what are the common mistakes an affiliate marketer can make?  If one Google’s the topic, many articles pop up and have varying opinions of the mistakes.

    A common theme throughout the varied opinions is about the product.  It boils down to the affiliate not knowing what the product or service does.  This can obviously stem from the affiliate not even having purchased the product, but can also be a result of the affiliate not taking the time to learn about the product or service.  A product or service cannot be effectively promoted if the promoter is not familiar with it or have tried it themselves.  If product related questions are asked, they cannot be effectively answered.  If the product is not tried, the affiliate could unknowingly be representing a bad product.  Regardless of the reason for not knowing the product, there is one outcome, a damaged affiliate reputation.  KNOW the products…

    Another mistake worth mentioning here is choosing the wrong affiliate or a non-consumable product/service.  One goal of an affiliate should be to create residual income.  Make sure the program will continue to pay period over period for continued sales to the same customer.  Also, make sure the product or service is consumable thus creating the need for recurring purchases.

    Another common mistake affiliate marketers make is not building a list.  I know you have heard the saying that people buy from people they know and trust.  Build a list and create a relationship with the list.  Then use the list to direct traffic to the affiliate offers.  However, a relationship must be built with the list through providing value to them.  If the list is just bombarded with offers, the concept is lost.

    Affiliate marketing is hard work, but with consistent and persistent effort it can pay off in the long run.  So, avoid the common pitfalls, and stay in the game, then reap the rewards.

    Many marketing methods require you to point traffic towards a blog instead of an affiliate link. Your blog can then point that traffic towards your affiliate products. Therefore, a blog gives you more ability to market your affiliate products.

    Affiliate marketing tips for beginners have to begin with the tip to investigate in great detail any company for which one is considering becoming an affiliate marketer. Although most people who are considering becoming involved with affiliate marketing will be aware of the big players such as Amazon and perhaps even how Amazon operates in terns of how their affiliate marketers function and how they are paid, not all factories who operate an affiliate marketing scheme operate in the same, fairly straightforward fashion.

    While it is always a good idea to read the small print terms and conditions prior to becoming involved with any company in any respect, there are a few particular tips to watch out for with affiliate marketing companies. The majority of affiliate marketing companies will have a payment threshold, which their affiliate marketers’ earnings must achieve before payment will be instigated. A lot of the companies will only pay a month or even two, however, after this threshold appears to have been reached and the exact payment system and payment date should be established in the beginning.

    There are also some affiliate marketing companies who only pay their affiliate marketers when a certain number of people have placed orders through their sites. This is ostensibly a way of guarding against abuse but what it means is that only when a certain number of unique credit card details have been used to pay for the products will the affiliate marketer be paid, regardless of the outstanding commissions they have earned.

    Affiliate marketing beginners are very often under the misconception that the way to affiliate marketing success is to include as many products in their websites and blogs as possible, in the hope that they are more likely therefore to include something to appeal to everyone. The opposite is actually true. Saturating sites with affiliate marketing products only gives them a spam-like appearance and fewer is definitely better in this case. The affiliate marketing products included for sale on a website or blog should represent only a few, quality products which are both extremely relevant to the larger topic of the website or blog posting and are seen to be recommended by the blogger or webmaster in a very positive fashion.
