Selling products from Affiliate Programs is not easy at all.

Think about it. You have thousands of
others selling the same product as you. How easy can that be. Affiliate
programs, as easy it seems to sign up, may be tough going eventually

Instead, selling your own products will
reap much better returns.
Why is that so?
Firstly, when you have your own products,
you are not competing with the many others that are selling the same
Secondly, you can create your own
affiliate program and get others to sell the product for you.
Thirdly, your main sales page will not
suffer from poor page ranking. Affiliate sales page often suffers from
poor ranking because search engine do not favour duplicated contents.
Back to Affiliate marketing. It is really
just another type of marketing. Therefore you'll definitely need to market
the product in order to earn some commissions. Many affiliates earn almost
nothing from their affiliate programs simply because they did nothing.
If you want to be successful in affiliate
marketing and if you want to continually grow your affiliate earnings,
you've got to take action. You must find ways to promote your merchant's
business and products better. Think of ways on how to induce other people
to click on the link or ad provided to you by your merchant. Think of ways
on how to make your affiliate sales increase!
So, do you still insist on being an
affiliate. If you do here are some pointers:

1. Host your own website.
It is generally more professionally
looking to host one's website. Avoid using free web hosting. Free web host
simply lack the credibility. Buyers want to know that they are buying
things from reliable and legitimate looking website
2.Become well-versed on your affiliate product.
It is better if you become an expert in
the product that you are selling. And the best thing to do this is to
purchase your merchant's product yourself. This way, you can promote the
product better to your customer. For example, you can write a review about
the product.
3. Create your own sales page and affiliate ads.
Many merchants is fine with you designing
your own ads for their products. This gives you a greater advantage over a
lot of other affiliates who must be advertising the same affiliate
