It is a fact that of the millions of people on the internet wanting to make a living with an affiliate online based business, there are approximately 95% of them who fail, of the balance a good percent are making a comfortable living and the other 1-2% are making an absolute fortune.

If you feel as though you are in the majority group who is failing, you are not alone, but if you look at the people who are achieving fantastic results, you will realize that they are not really any different from you. They are all average everyday Joe’s.

So what is the reason for their success when so many others are failing?

Here are some of the reasons why they are so successful and this is what makes the difference.

The key difference for those who succeed with an internet based business is as follows:

1.  Have a plan in place.

The first thing you need to do is understand the reasons WHY you want to start a business on the internet. Once you have clarified this, the next point to consider is HOW you actually are going to do this. (This is called a business plan).

The more clearly you can picture the type of online business you want and how you are going to operate it to achieve your goals, the better your chances of focusing on what needs to be done will be. Also having a plan in place will generate more energy to do it, and increase your chance of success.

2.  Knowledge and Perseverance.

Of the 5% of people who achieve success with their affiliate marketing businesses you will notice that they manage this with a combination of self-education and consistent perseverance.

They do not jump from one opportunity to another.
They find what works for them and they stick to it until they have mastered it completely.

Only when they have learned one step thoroughly and are making some money from it, will they then move on to another.

They look for mentors who can help them achieve their goals and they do not waste time on distractions. If they make a mistake they learn from it and move on.

They think positively at all times and expect to succeed. If something goes wrong, they focus again on their plan which will keep them inspired and moving forward.

In summary you will notice that there is nothing on this list that cannot be done by the average person. If you are able to read this article and understand what I have written here, then there is absolutely no reason at all why you cannot be successful in your internet based affiliate business. All you need to do is stay focused and persistent. Don’t give up too early and you will see your income improving all the time.
