Have You Experienced The Kisses Of Death? Avoid This 7 Affiliate Marketing Mistakes And You Never Will!

There are many affiliate marketing mistakes that keeping beginners from achieving maximum success online, I actually wrote other articles about this in the pass addressing a few of this kisses of death, I talk about some of this errors in my "Affiliate Marketing Tips" post, but today I want to talk about some of the mistakes that can kill your chances to earn an affiliate commission right from the start.

There are many things you as Internet marketing beginner can learn from top online marketers, not just from there successes, but also from their errors... errors that sometimes in the eyes of a beginner can look like the right marketing tactic to fallow, and the problem is that their are not good tactics. The thing is that many top online marketers don't have the time to follow every single good strategy that can increase there sales, instead they relay on the fact that now they have a bigger customer base, better online reputation, and a large list of hot opt-in prospects that they can leverage and turn into a good amount of monthly income. Some of them really learn from there own mistakes just like Mike Filsaime and his venture partners when they over promote new product launches to there email list of prospect and customers, which make them money but also increase the opt-out rate of their list. Then he wrote a small report called "The Death Of The Internet Marketing" where he talk about his bad marketing experiences. The fact of this is that Internet marketing didn't die, Mr. Filsaime and his launch partners killed it for them self not for us.

Don't get me wrong, Mike has a few good traffic products, and marketing training material that is worth the money in gold, like "The Butterfly Marketing Manuscript" and InstantBuzz... but, that report was just an stupid excuse to rebuild his list, not to provide any quality. Now I don't recommend any body to sign up for his email list, because he doesn't teach you anything except for how to right good email promotions, because that's the only thing you are going to get from him, sale offerings. The best Internet marketing newsletter you can subscribe is the IMC Marketing Tips Newsletter.

You can make $20 for a 20 minute survey!

Guess what? This is exactly what major companies are paying me for. They need to know what their average customer needs and wants. So large companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars every month to the average person. In return, the average person, like myself, participates in surveys and gives them their opinion.
