ADAPT OR DIE – Why so many affiliates are short-lived individuals?

There are exactly TWO still-active affiliates that I know of, who started at the same time as I did, back in 1998. It’s pretty hard to believe, because at that time, we were all members of a small private affiliate forum with almost 100 members from my country. Now all of those guys are gone, none of them is active in affiliate marketing anymore, just these two guys and me. To be fair, I don’t keep contact with all of them obviously, but based on the info I have, pretty much all are doing something else now.

At first sight, it might seem weird or even unbelievable, but this is one of the specifics of AM – many affiliates don’t last long. There are several reasons for this, some are obvious, some not so much, but you should be aware of as many as possible – in order to prevent them from killing your AM career too. Let’s take a closer look at the 3 most common ones, that I was able to witness during my journey.

Why I shutdown my shopify store [and what I learned from running one]

Why I shutdown my shopify store [and what I learned from running one]

I created a shopify store 2 months ago,  wanted to get my feet wet and see how it is.  After all the free you just pay shipping and handling craze, and also the SAVE 80% off methods seemed so great, all tee-spring guys were switching from T to S.      Grass is greener right?   LETS TRY IT!

I registered a domain,  setup a site, and found some good suppliers on aliexpress.    These suppliers met my criteria,   over 98% feedback rating on minimum 1000 feedback,  items are good quality,  good price and in range.

Went ahead, had them added to my shopify store, and started launching ads and split testing them.  Orders started coming in, it was cool – but then I realized, FUCK I gotta fulfill these orders and not just do the marketing part (which is what im best at, and enjoy the most)
