Part-3 Success Affiliate Marketing Business - 14 Reasons Why You Can Not Sell More Affiliate Products 6) Lack of great relationship with merchants. Working with the merchants is an absolutely great idea for you to start promoting the affiliate products. You can request, build relationship with merchants or even negotiate the affiliate commission structure with your merchants. 7) Lack of quality opt-in list. The opt-in list is the most important asset for affiliate marketing entrepreneurs. Without the list, you are wasting your time and money for selling affiliate products. Think about this way! You drive visitors to merchants' website. If those visitors make a purchase, you will get an affiliate commission. If there are no any purchases, you will not get your commission. With this situation, it is a great idea for affiliate entrepreneurs to capture visitors' information in order to sell other affiliate products later. With capturing the visitors' information, your opportunities to earn more affiliate commission are opened and increased. You can sell other affiliate products later in the future. 8) Lack of strong back-end selling. The strong back-end selling is one of the most effective approaches for affiliate marketing entrepreneurs to sell more affiliate products to the existing buyers or subscribers. The key to success for back-end selling is to focus on both of existing buyers/subscribers and new potential customers. 9) Lack of well-known reputation in the market. The reputation is very important for your creditability and reliability. All you have to do are: advertising yourself all the time in the market and be aware of what affiliate products you are going to promote. With the scam affiliate products, it will hurt your reputation directly.
