In the United States, people enter “affiliate marketing” into their search engine of choice about 49,500 times a month. That’s over 1500 times a day.
What does this mean? Is competition that fierce? Everyone wants to make money by being an affiliate, right?
If you’re just getting into affiliate marketing, relax. Most of those people don’t know what they’re doing. I once had a friend tell me his plan was to send links to his friends. He didn’t want to do the work of building a website or learning about advertising. I guarantee that a large number of people who search the term affiliate marketing are just like my friend.
