When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bike. Then I realised that The Lord doesn't work that way, so I stole one and asked him to forgive me.
Perhaps, it is the same with internet and affiliate marketing... if you are going to sit and wait for customers to visit your site, and buy products, then you better have a benevolent lord..
Alternately, if you go out and search the marketplace, steal some ideas and analyse these strategies so as to include the products your market and finally re-strategise and if possible bribe the buyers..... marketing would be a lot easier !
Ofcourse, don't forget to confess each Sunday...
Very soon, you will be offering the priest a share as well !
