DKSP EP:27 – How to Research Keywords Efficiently Without Expensive Softwares

Almost 90% of people who get into affiliate marketing never make a single dollar from it!

That might sound demotivating and alarming but let me put that in slightly clearer terms. 90% of the people do not make any money with affiliate marketing because –

  1. They take a lot of training but never follow everything that is being taught
  2. They are looking for a shortcut to making money
  3. They prefer skipping the basics in affiliate marketing and quickly move over to the advanced part. Consequently their foundation is very weak and they fail.
  4. They do not take action. Procrastination doesn’t help!

To put that into perspective; “If you take action and follow the steps that you learn, there is no way you will fail“.

We are into part-5 of our series on “Building an affiliate marketing business”. If you haven’t listened to the earlier episodes and if you want to guarantee your success with affiliate marketing, I will recommend that you start from the beginning ad not jump the line. It will be easier for your to understand and you will have clear cut actionables that you can straight away start working on.

One of the most difficult part in affiliate marketing is researching your keywords. And in this episode that is what we are primarily going to cover.
