Affiliate Marketing Tips: Walk Before You Run

An affiliate marketing tip that you must know.

I was with one of my affiliate marketing students who was pretty excited that he was making some money from his first website. It is really a great feeling when you try something and find it works. Anyway he told me how he cannot wait to start his next site. In this post I will share with you the advice that I gave him

As an affiliate marketing newbie, it is easy to get over-excited when you make your first sale. But I say it is time to settle down and not get carried away.

Your first website is really your training website. You need to use this platform to learn all you can about making money online.

It is not enough to make a sale. You need to understand why you made that sale.

What brought that particular customer to your site? Why did they buy through you. Was it just a fluke or is it a result of a good pre-sell on your pages? It is only then that you can successfully duplicate your methods.

So the top affiliate marketing tip? Affiliate marketing is not just about making a sale, it is about understanding the exact reason why you made that sale. This is the key point to all your marketing training
