Connor:  A few things that I wish I knew BEFORE I started my affiliate marketing journey.

1. You’re going to put in the same amount of work for high ticket and low ticket items. One or the other doesn’t require more attention. Try to find a high ticket offer and create content for that offer. But choose something you enjoy doing or talking about.

2. This is a business so it’s going to require money. I wanted to save as much money as possible but I quickly realized if I’m going to go ”all in” with this, I’m going to have to spend money. There are some free resources that are great but at the end of the day, this is a business that will require investments but what you do with those investments is more important.

3. Stay consistent. Even on days where you don’t feel like doing anything at all. When the clicks are there but the saws aren’t, don’t give up. That’s the absolute worst thing to do. Keep your head down, grind, and the results will come.

4. Master one source of traffic first. I made the mistake of doing 3,4,5 different sources of traffic and it wasn’t doing anything for me. Spend time focusing on mastering one traffic source and once you master that, add another one. Put all your energy and time into one and watch the results come.

5. Maybe the most important lesson is to get a mentor. I didn’t sell anything at all. Not one dime until I found a mentor that went through the same struggles I did. He taught me how to do everything he did and that’s when things started to change.

Hopefully this post helps someone who is struggling and if you are, keep grinding.

And a few additional tips

Before you choose your Niche
You should know how to make money on it

Choose keywords
Start with keywords with difficulty under 10
So you can ‘SEO rank’ more easily
Then later you can use keywords with higher number in difficulty (0 to 100)
100 being most difficult, 0 being the easiest to rank
