    It is believed that more than 80% of affiliate marketers don't make any money. Could be because they are doing it all wrong or maybe they give up because creating a blog, building an audience and earning their trust can take a long time.

    There are some affiliate marketers who prefer to pay for ads and get targeted traffic come to their affiliate websites. Because the people visiting the sites are actually interested in buying the products being advertised, the affiliate market is more likely to make money than someone who gets traffic from search engines.

    If you can afford it, do you think spending money on ads would be a great way of drawing in people who'll probably buy what you are promoting on your site?

    First of all, not all affiliate marketing is done by visitors coming to a publisher's website. As affiliates, we have dozens of channels to get a prospect to a conversion.

    As for free versus paid traffic. Paid traffic wins out always because it is targeted traffic based on researching the target audience and data retrieval from a tracker. Traffic from the SERPS is considered tertiary traffic and is important only for those with content sites. SERPS play no role at all in a sales funnel that relie on standard landing pages that are never intended to be indexed.

    As for 80% of affiliate marketers never making a dime is like calling everyone that tries out for the NFL a professional football player. You aren't, IMO, an affiliate marketer unless you have learned to successfully market with a positive ROI. Until this happens, you are just a struggling student trying to become a professional.

    I totally agree with you, it is very true, so spending money on it is not a good idea

    All the things are depending on the perfect practicing. Suppose you are a sportsman and don't practice properly then what happened?. On the other thing, I found to the newbie that they aren't able to stick up with their goal. Suppose someone post some income screenshot of ClickBank payment then newbie is jump to this. After some days someone post on payment proof screenshot about some CPA network and they are the jump to this. By this way they aren't focused on one thing or niche.
