Is Affiliate Marketing Overly Saturated?


One of the biggest hurdles to overcome in the affiliate marketing world is whether or not it’s worth spending your time getting into it.

You see, every man and his dog seems to be taking the plunge “so to speak” with the intentions of making money online.

You know just because it may seem easy, it doesn’t mean that it is.

One advantage affiliate marketing has over many offline business opportunities is that is a low cost option.

Many offline businesses can cost you up to $25K just to get started and then there is still no guarantee that you’ll make a penny.

Whereas affiliate marketing can be started on a shoe string budget anywhere from $30 and up.

Therein lies the problem, because it is so cheap to get started, every man and his dog seems to want to start an affiliate marketing business.

Which prompts the question.

Is Affiliate Marketing Really Over Saturated?

And if this is the first time you have delved into the world of affiliate marketing, then on the surface it would appear to be overly saturated.

You see, everyone is vying for the first page of Google, and there are only 10 spots available, unless you’re paying for traffic.

Therefore, if you have 100 or even 1000 people competing for a top 10 spot, then someone misses out – right?

Which is why a lot of folks think that affiliate marketing is overly saturated.

And if that is your business model then you’re competing with way more than 100, 1000 and in some cases millions of other online entrepreneurs

So how do you get around this obstacle?

Is there even a way to do it?

Well, I’m glad you asked.

Find A Good Mentor

Just like everything in life, if you find someone who has been there done that, then you just increased your chances of success by 1000%.

Expectations is a big killer in business.

Set the wrong expectations and you’ll never hit the mark.

Finding a good mentor helps you to set the right expectations and have a more targeted approach to what you’re trying to do.

A good mentor will help you to navigate through rough patches where you would have otherwise given up. They can see the road ahead and therefore know when you’re getting close or if you have some way to go.

Where To Find One

There are a lot of successful mentors out there, however, finding one that will help you become successful is difficult to find, because it takes a lot of their time and energy to show you the ropes.

They would rather use that time to make there own businesses more successful.

However, if you can find someone that could help you becomes successful, then they are worth their weight in gold.

Spending time and understanding how they think and what they concentrate or focus the majority of their time is what you should be looking to achieve.

You see, we all have a finite amount of time that we can all work in a day. No one has more and no one has any less, so finding out what is the best use of your time will pay big dividends in the days or months to come.

So if you can find a good mentor then be glad you have.
