Affiliate lessons to be learned
Many affiliates give up after the first 3 months when they don't make any money.
Usually, an affiliate will get the idea that they can earn 5 or 6 figures a month with little effort and magic will just happen.
The truth is 99% of affiliates will fail to earn money because they don't have the right guidance to show them what areas they need to improve upon.
Most of these affiliates also don't know how much time it takes to make their first commission and many don't have any plans past 3 months.
Some of the successful affiliates listed in the directory didn't earn money so quickly with some taking a full year to make a good living from affiliate income.
