Every advantage matters when you’re an affiliate marketer.
Campaigns are a competition, and whoever has a higher profit margin can capture more of a market.
We need every advantage possible since we’re not making money off the backend.
I notice a lot of newbies think there’s a “magic” bullet to a winning campaign. I think of it more like a combination of a bunch of “little” advantages that add up.
I deleted my personal Facebook account a long time ago. It’s such a TIME SUCK.
Is it really the best use of my time to take a quiz about which Overwatch character I am? Probably not (even though I’m sure I’m a Zenyatta).

…and this is important…
If you ask for affiliate marketing advice, one common saying will pop up over and over again:
It’s 100% true, but it’s much easier said than done.
I got an email last week from a reader who’s frustrated with affiliate marketing. He said he’s been in this space for over three years and hasn’t made a dime.

In every sport, there are certain “fundamentals” that you have to master in order to be successful.
In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you need to master a “hip escape” which helps you escape from bad positions.
Basketball players must master passing, and soccer requires great dribbling.
When you’re first starting out, it might be tempting to try and learn all the flashy moves. But you won’t get far in anything unless you master the basics first.
If you want to make money in mobile traffic, you can’t have the same mindset you would a desktop campaign.
They’re two completely different worlds.
Let me share an example.
Your affiliate manager pings you with a HOT mobile offer. It’s getting insane EPC’s.
The catch? It only accepts traffic from one carrier (pretty common for the top pin submit offers).
