Everyone wants to succeed in affiliate marketing in Kenya because it is no longer a secret that this is the way to go for those looking for a surefire way to take back control of their lives.
In this industry, there are no bosses to order you around.
No more deadlines to beat and no clutter of work to make you hate your Mondays.
Just to recap;
- Identify an affiliate program and join.
- Look for a way to promote the affiliate products. For example, you can use your social media accounts or start a website.
- Have a system to generate results consistently.
Now, if you do these three things, you will be on your way to making money as an affiliate in Kenya.
But that is not all.
You need more than that to rise the ranks and be crowned the super affiliate.
I mean, yes, you can earn a few thousand per month by implementing the three things I mentioned above.
But if you need to make real money, I mean upwards of KES 60K per month through affiliate marketing, you need more than that.
See, there is stiff competition in this industry.
And to be able to stand out and get a chance to convince that prospect to buy through your link, you must be equipped with the necessary tools to make it happen.
#1. Willingness to learn and be trained
To have a shot at succeeding in affiliate marketing, you need to be willing to learn.
This means that setting aside your ego and accepting to be a student always.
See, going into unknown territories is scary especially when you aren’t well equipped to handle whatever is on the other side.
During such times, learning the tricks of the trade is the only way to make sure you limit the mistakes and waste of resources you’d have otherwise met with.
This is where willingness comes in handy.
It empowers you with far better advantages in the business than you could ever imagine.
#2. Willingness to invest time and effort even you don’t see results, yet
Here is the thing;
A ton of people get into affiliate business expecting millions overnight.
And when their ridiculous expectations aren’t met, they give up and say, affiliate marketing is a scam.
Truth is, affiliate marketing is a process.
Months may pass without any sign of good news.
And when that happens, it is vital for any serious affiliate to be firm and wait.
In fact, it is this quality that sets apart successful affiliates from the mediocre ones.
#3. You need Self-determination
If you want to conquer the world of affiliate marketing in Kenya, you need the ability to push yourself.
As mentioned earlier, things won’t always be rosy.
And if you know anything about business, you understand that that’s how it is everywhere.
In order to stay on course and be able to realize your dreams, you need to have self-motivation.
#4. You need discipline
Self-discipline is how you will actually show when you set to show up.
It is that voice within you always keeping you on your toes.
And anyone who has mastered discipline is close to achieving what he has set his heart to having in the first place.
Once you have these four things, you need one more thing to succeed in affiliate marketing in Kenya.
#5. You need to possess optimism
At some point in your affiliate journey, you will feel as if you are wasting your time.
Trust me, I have been there.
I have this site I have been working on for close to 3 months.
It already got some articles and already pulling some impressions from search engines.
But so far, traffic is almost zero.
It is like a ghost town.
And that is when you start thinking;
- Am I wasting my time and effort?
- This looks like a lost course
- It won’t work
Maybe your friends as well aren’t supportive, and they keep reminding you how you have lost your mind.
At such moments, I tend to remind myself why I started this affiliate marketing journey.
I start going over the good things on the other side of my goals.
I keep being optimistic.
See, optimism is the most effective weapon against negative attitudes and hearsays.
