Debunking affiliation myths

< back to knowledge center

Affiliate marketing is a rapidly growing field. Unfortunately, like many other tools for making money online, it raises a lot of controversy. In this article we want to try to debunk some popular beliefs on affiliate programs.

  • Affiliate marketing is not an online store. It is simply a universal tool for increasing the revenue of other online entities, allowing flexible adjustments in promoted programs, depending on current trends or economic situation. Many creators of online products and services started in affiliation field. Many e-commerce owners use affiliate marketing to boost their profit.
  • Affiliate marketing isn’t associated exclusively with erotic and pharmaceutical industry. Polish affiliate networks presently offer hundreds of programs in over a dozen fields (including brands like HP, Citibank, wakacje.pl, etc.)
  • Affiliate marketing is not spam. Many people still associate affiliate programs with Viagra advertisements they receive through email, or websites flashing with annoying banners. Serious advertisers cannot afford the risk of brand dilution through such actions. Affiliates using illicit techniques are removed from the network.
  • Affiliate marketing does not guarantee huge profits on the spot. Although, there are numerous websites trying to sell trade secrets of affiliation, luring people with a promise of instant wealth, affiliate marketing requires meticulousness, patience and tenacity It’s for those who know, that there’s time to sow and time to reap. There are, of course, many people, who lead luxurious life thanks to affiliate programs, but they earned it with hard work, perseverance, and by making right decisions. There’s no universal recipe for success. You can try following expert pointers based on their own experience (like the ones on our website), but you need to remember, that to be successful affiliate, you should come up with your own strategy.
