Every once in awhile you have to take a step back and see what’s working, and what’s not. For me, it’s the question of affiliate marketing, and it’s definitely not working. Anyone who thought that they were going to sign up for a bunch of affiliate programs, create some links, and fire them out into the vast internet probably knows this already… it ain’t that easy. Even the low hanging fruit isn’t nearly as deliciously attainable as you might expect it to be.
It’s absolutely true what they say. Focus on your content first, and building an audience. Then, and only then, work to monetize your channels. If you try to do it any other way, you’re looking at a lot of time spent spinning your wheels with nothing to show for it… and the frustration that comes with it.
