I need your expert opinion please. I’ve been doing every IM course under the sun.
I love Twitter so much and have been getting traffic to Amazon. I am an Amazon Affiliate.
I was told this weekend that I am wasting my time trying to sell Amazon USA products because there is too much competition from other sites. I was also told that my niche is wrong.My niche is baby travel gear.
If you have a chance, I would so appreciate your personal opinion on these two statements.
Many thanks in advance if you can reply to this as I am very seriously giving up after 2 years on the internet.
If you are currently NOT making any money, it might be time to look in another direction.
If you are making money doing whatever you are doing, why change it? Who cares what people say.
Lots of competition is not a bad thing, it is a sign that it works for a lot of people. You just have to find a way to excel beyond those people.
It is getting more and more difficult to sell things on the Internet. But it is still possible.
While twitter can help drive traffic to your site(s) this traffic is not specific and not targeted there. There is a big difference between targeted and non targeted traffic.

Building A Marketing List
In your two years on line, have you built a list yet? If you have then you ‘might’ have more security than just trying to be an affiliate.
Here are free videos on list building. (I do suggest that you spend the money on the full training though, I do believe it is very helpful)
Affiliate Marketing That Pays More
Amazon has a very low commission rate. You can earn more commissions from our store. You can find the sign up link to the affiliate program at the bottom of this page.
The Truth About Marketing On The Internet
– I am not going to tell you that things are great in the online marketing world, because they are not. I am also not going to tell you how ‘easy’ it is – because it is not. Anyone who says it is easy is lying / trying to sell you a product.
There is no easy way to make money with online marketing.
But, having said that. Some things work better than others. Paid traffic is very much a better way to sell things than trying to get free traffic.
Free traffic is usually not enough to keep your business going. That is why I suggest you read The Truth About Traffic.
The bottom line is that it is hard. And I don’t blame you for wanting to quit. In the end, it has to be your choice.
It might be easier for you to make money offline.
I won’t tell you to quit and I won’t give you false hope that things will get better. I do not know what your future holds or even mine for that matter.
PS. I wish you luck, but it is going to take a lot of hard work to make it online. There are no shortcuts. You won’t likely find an easy path either.
