I am going to share some of these mistakes and methods to avoid them.
Focusing on multiple traffic sources
There are so many traffic sources that if someone wants to master one it would take a lifetime. So focusing on multiple traffic sources can become a bit difficult at times. As they say jack of all trades, master of one. Be good at one channel whether that is Facebook, organic or from your blog do not matter. The thing that matter is you know what you are doing with at least one of them. Now as you see that you are getting solid traffic from one channel try to gradually divert your attention on other sources as well.

Putting too much time of landing pages
I don't frequently use direct linking, yet in the event that I do, it's typically simply because I'm on a tight due date or it's a branded application that doesn't require pre-offering (like the Uber application).
Utilizing landing pages implies wireframing, outlining, coding, reexamining, and transferring to the server. Beginners think this implies they have to invest hours creating the "ideal" landing page. They invest days ensuring everything is immaculate, the shading plan coordinates with standards of shading hypothesis, and everything is consistent.
Not a good idea. I'm not saying that you need to send traffic to broken landing pages. I am stating that it's smarter to get something up, than to stress over the correct shade of hues for your first test. You need to settle on information-driven choices. You will just know whether a landing page functions admirably or not AFTER you test it. My appalling landing pages frequently change over superior to anything proficient, "clean" ones, so let the information talk. Simply get a landing page up and running. Stress over calibrating it after you get a few information. You'll be amazed which landing pages change over the best.
Choose your competition intelligently

Too much time on researching
In the event that you Google "affiliate marketing," there are countless outcomes. At that point, there are several private discussions and Facebook groups that have a huge number of posts.

Here's a case: Envision you need to learn Japanese. How would you do it? You download an application, possibly you purchase a reading material, or you hit up a Meetup.com bunch in your city to meet a few local people doing likewise. You wouldn't invest days Googling "how to learn Japanese" and weeks experiencing discussions and blog entries perusing about it.

Same with affiliate marketing. Discover an outline to take after, at that point, simply begin propelling campaigns and learn by doing. You can just take in such a great amount by perusing from different affiliates, regardless of the possibility that they really hear what they're saying.
Practically all that you take in will originate from your own particular testing, your one-on-one driving forces, and meeting individuals at affiliate marketing occasions. One noteworthy hint I have for you is: "Learn aptitudes as you require them."

Simply begin, and make sense of things as you go.
