OUCH! That's what happens when you join an affiliate program too soon. When setting up my credit card offers site, I applied early to the best merchants. As luck would have it, Christmas, New Year's and life got in the way, and I did no work at all on the site for almost two months. First PREMIER Bank saw no traffic coming from my site to theirs, so their program dropped me.

To avoid having this happen to you, get 90% of your site together before applying to programs. In fact, I recommend that BEFORE applying to a program, write descriptions and endorsements for the products you plan to promote.

Once accepted, all you'll have to do is add your links and use a pay per click to drive traffic to your site right away. Not only will you build revenue faster, you'll prevent nasty occurrences such as the one above.

It’s so much easier than you think to create unlimited wealth online. I’m going to show you exactly how in my comprehensive guide. Affiliates are making more money than ever these days easily cashing in while they are off doing other things. It’s nice to know you can bring in a massive income while you’re not even monitoring things because you will not be personally selling anything. You don’t even have to speak from the people that order from you.
