Affiliate Marketing Scams – Don’t Give Them Your Money
Affiliate marketing allows anybody with an Internet connection to make money fairly quickly, without having a product to sell, and without ever touching one. There is good money to be made through affiliate marketing, and sadly the scam artists have also realized this. Hence an explosion of affiliate marketing scams are now polluting the internet, ready to part you with your hard earned cash.
Unfortunately many people do take the bait, and with highly tempting sales pages promising to make you rich beyond your wildest dreams, it’s not hard to see why. This is when most people loose any belief that affiliate marketing is a feasible way to make money on the Internet and see it as just another fly by night scam.
This is just not the case. Affiliate marketing is a growing multi million dollar industry, and with hundreds of high street brands launching affiliate programs every day, affiliate marketing is now more lucrative than ever. It’s just unfortunate that there are a lot of affiliate marketing scams out there to stop people dead in their tracks before they even get started.
I have probably brought every affiliate marketing related product under the sun. I can tell you from personal experience that 99% of these products were just over hyped garbage. The affiliate marketing books that did teach the techniques that made me the money where unsurprisingly written by the same guy.
If the truth be told, anybody with half a brain can make money from affiliate marketing. Although there are many people out there selling off affiliate marketing scams, there are still a few people out there that are genuine, and do sell legitimate material. If you really want to be an Internet marketer then the one thing that will bring the money home, is good old fashion persistence.
