You won’t earn money with affiliate marketing in few days or so. It takes times. Most people give because of the time it takes time to start earning from affiliate websites. Know that you will earn money, but it will take time. There is nothing wrong the waiting.
2: You will make mistake and it’s fine!

These are two most important factors to become highly successful affiliate marketer. There is nothing out there that you can’t do. However, you have to learn to stuff, work hard, and improve yourself. That’s it! Thanks.
