All set? Now you launch your campaign. You wait for your $$$ to pour in. It may start in a trickle or none at all. Or you might hit the right product that will earn you thousands of dollars. This is the moment to start checking which system works, which one doesn’t and make the necessary adjustments.
Now your Q & A moment. Are you happy with the results? Are there any changes or readjustments needed? Where did you fail? This is where the process of elimination happens. If all systems are okay then you can probably start a new campaign for a new product if you wish. Or if there are problems, something didn’t work, then change your approach, improve, retry. Do not stop. Persist and you will succeed.
The affiliate marketing business is a continuous process. If you are successful in your first attempt, then you may duplicate what you have done in your first business.
Do not sit and do nothing. Internet business constantly evolves so keep researching, keep reading, be informed and understand that your business needs to be maintained, constantly monitored, improved and refreshed.
