Success in affiliate marketing depends of setting goals. These have to be realistic and attainable. All over the web there are promises of making $1m here or driving a Lamborghini there or living a Caribbean dream lifestyle. However, the realism of affiliate marketing is a little different.
If you haven’t made your first dime in affiliate marketing yet – then you won’t be making $1 million by the end of the month. Sorry to break the bad news. However, the good news is that by setting realistic goals, you can build a good income for every month.
It’s important to set a fixed goal and without it, it’s very easy to get distracted by other ‘sideshows’ all over the internet. Goals are essential to keep the mind focused and action heading in the right direction.
Here are couple of realistic and achievable goals for the affiliate newbie:
- Make £100 through affiliate marketing by the end of the first month
- Make £2000 a month through affiliate marketing by the end of the first year
Setting up smaller goals that are more easily achieved will motivate more. Every time you achieve a goal, you will need to expand it to the next level up. As you meet your goals your income will snowball.
