Be careful of affiliate marketers. They want to sell you product after product, service after service. You know what? There’s nothing wrong with it.
Look at fast food chains. They want to sell you the hamburgers but they also want you to buy the drinks and fries as well. Maybe even an apple pie…
Affiliates are no different. They want to sell you stuff. Stuff that solves your problems. Just don’t buy what you don’t need.
A few months back there was a large promo going around for a new software suite of tools in the internet marketing space.
Everyone started promoting it because it had a good affiliate program and the affiliates promoting it earned a lot more than they did promoting their other piece of software that they were all using.
All of a sudden, this old piece of software that everyone had been using was, um, “dead…”
It suddenly started having problems and this new tool was supposedly the solution. Cough, cough…
Fast forward a few months later, everyone is using the old piece of software again.
There’s a big lesson here.
Don’t buy what you don’t need. you’d be amazed at how you can run a successful business online completely bootstrapped with almost no tools whatsoever.
There’s always going to be affiliates and product owners using spin to promo their products and services especially when a new product is released or during a launch.
The solution is not to be fooled into buying something you don’t need and complicating your business.
Be smart. Buy what helps take your business to the next level. If you want to save more money and buy what you need, I can offer you a custom business solution during a free strategy session.
