2. Focus on one product that you trust
By focusing on one product to promote, you will have better progress. Think about it. If you focus on 3 products to promote, you will divide your attention and efforts into three product promotion. But, if you focus on only one, you are giving your attention and efforts directly for the promotion of that one product. Thus, your result will be better. It is better to earn more with one product than to earn less with multiple products. So, focus to promote one product that you trust.
3. Don’t be ‘greedy’ in your first try

So, follow one simple system that will ensure that you get the sales from your promotion. Trying multiple internet marketing methods will not give you effective result. If you are ‘greedy’ by hopping from one method to another method without giving the chance for the method to work, it will keep yourself in the failure zone. So, if this is your first try in affiliate marketing, simply choose one appealing promotion method and stick with it until you see some results. Only then, you can experiment with other methods as much as you like.
