Building an affiliate marketing business can be a lot of hard work. It wouldn’t be so hard if someone would just let you in on those affiliate marketing secrets right? Wouldn’t it be great if you could work an hour or two every week and watch the money just pour in to your bank account?
I agree, that would be awesome! Not very realistic but awesome.
Have you seen some of the sales pitches that make claims like these? Of course you have. And how can the creators of these products make such claims? They can make such claims because it is a reality for them. They have created an information product and they have an army of affiliates promoting their product for them.
They don’t tell you about the years they spent working for peanuts in this business. That is where affiliate marketing secrets are learned. Sure, you can cut your learning curve with the proper affiliate marketing training, but you still have to pay your dues if you want success.
