Warning Before Deciding to Join Amazon Affiliate Program:

There are some facts remains in the field of affilaite program which you may encounter sooner or later. It is not limited to Amazon Affiliate program but these facts are associated with any Affiliate program. 

1. No Organic Traffic

It is hard to believe. Search engines are not at all in support affiliate marketing websites. According to search Engines they believe affiliate marketing websites do not provide any extra information to the website visitors. Thats why affiliate marketing website do not show up in search results. 

Where as there are smart website owners exist who knows how to cleverly use affiliate links in the website. Search engines identify a website from the affiliate links that are available in the website. So smart website owners, they use indirect redirecting method. And that is, they place simple tag in the webpage and upon clicking the tag with the help of javascript they redirect to the sellers page. If you visit popular affiliate marketing websites, you would notice, they are not using affiliate links. Rather they are placing tags and encourages user to click on it. Once user click on it, then the user is redirected to the website of the seller. This way, they hide it from search engines. 

2. Hackers inject cookies

The problem part most of the website owners are not from programming background. So they are not at all aware cyber security threats. They simply use plugins with out even examining the authenticities of the plugins. There can be chance some plugins fail to sanitize the provided information. Such websites are vulberable to hackers to inject scripts. So hackers can inject and place their affiliate link in the place of yours.

The only solution is to escape scripts. And if we are opening the link in new tab then we must use rel="noopener" attribute. It would stop from injecting scripts by hackers.

3. People avoid such links

Today people are aware of everything what is happening around. Few website visitors are there who visit affiliate marketing sites to find out the lowest price and after that dont click on the affiliate link because such people fear the website owner may get commission. So rather they visit company site and purchase. 

Because of this you could see there are heavy visitors but less conversion. 

4. Competitors snatch away your business

Undoubtely, there are two sources to get traffic to a affiliate marketing sites. One is organic search and second one is social search. But today there is heavy competition going on. The moment you start paid campaign on social sites, you would notice, your competitors are too campaigning for same goal. And gradually you would explore that those people are actually snatching away your business which supposed to be a possible conversion for your campaign. And similarly the moment your webpage links appeared in the organis search results, your competitors links too going to appear in the search results.  

5. Country specific

Affiliate marketing programs are not globally available. Most of the programs are country specific. For example, Amazon India and Amazon US both are different market. If you are affiliate marketing agent of Amazon US and your website visitors ended up purchasing product from Amazon India Market then there is no commission. Certain affiliate programs are strictly small area specific. Before running any campaign, be clear about the allowed region to help to sale the products. 

6. Plugins dont work

Most of the affiliate programs have launched plugins for wordpress website. Certain plugins are not working properly. The problem part is when you run the wordpress website, the plugin appears working smooth but when you access the same website from another system or location, then the plugin appears as if not working right. So be triple sure to use such plugins. 

7. Company deny commission

In some cases, your record says you have sold 10 products in previous month but company record says you have sold 6 products only. This is happening with certain affiliate program providers. In such scenario there is no more scope to do any thing as it is purely system operated workflow. 

8. Commission rate changes

This is one of the biggest bitter truth which no one speaks openly. Commission rates are not fixed. They change frequently. People identify which product is offering highest commission, then launched the program accordingly but the moment sales take place, the commission rate is reduced down to almost one fourth of its initial commission value. This happens. So keep in mind, commission rates change frequently. 

9. Zero commission products

There is high commission rate on certain products and there is low commission rate on certain products. These commission rate vary. But there is also products which has 0 commission rate. No matter how the product is in demand in the market, if the commission rate is set 0 then no commission will be paid after sales. 

10. Ban on social platforms

Earlier search engines and later social platforms became enemy of affiliate marketing. They too are not allowing social links to be shared on their platform. So if some one posts frequently on social platforms then their account even gets suspended. 

So these are the ten worst realities of affiliate marketing which no one talks openly. If you are planning to try affiliate marketing then keep these realities in mind.
