Top 3 Characteristics of Affiliate Marketers Exposed

Achieving the Right Affiliate Mindset and Overcoming Common Growth Challenges.

In this post we describe 3 types of marketing personalities to help you understand the right mindset and overcome common challenges that new affiliates face.

With first-hand experience in affiliate marketing, I can say that the right attitude is absolutely vital for your success in any business.

Affiliate Marketing Personal Development

Here are the three most common characteristics of affiliate marketers.

These personality types can conclusively help to explain at about which growth point you’re at in regards to your affiliate career in addition to about where you’re headed towards into the future as well.

The three different types are as follows:

  • The Newbie

  • The Shopper

  • The Learner

#1 - Newbie Affiliate Marketer

A large majority of affiliates fall in one of these first two groups. The newbie is essentially the wide-eyed, bushy-tailed and hyper motivated affiliate who’s just found out about the game. They’re often quite optimistic, however, this particular trait is usually also tempered by a relative innocence, ultimately ensuring that said affiliate is completely and utterly unaware of the truly harsh, difficult challenges to face.

#2 - Shopper Affiliate Marketer

The shopper encompasses perhaps the largest overall amount of affiliate marketers in the space today. Shopper type affiliates tend to do a ton of research and buy as many different affiliate marketing tutorials as they possibly can. They’re usually huge fans of e-books, cleverly-named courses and DFY affiliate products, literally believing that achieving their personal online marketing goals — both in the short and long terms — will be dictated by whether or not they can somehow discover the perfect former affiliate blueprint for success. And they usually won’t stop spending until they do — at least until they run entirely out of money, of course.

#3 - Learner Affiliate Marketer

The learner on the other hand, is the affiliate marketer who has managed to put it all together, constantly learning new things whilst also not missing out on the opportunity to learn from their own personal mistakes as well.

They’re a success and through hard work, intuition and a strong desire and motivation to succeed, they’ve grabbed the proverbial brass ring and pulled it in for them.

Naturally, you’re no doubt wondering what the big secret is that the learner type affiliates learned in order for them to help get themselves to the next level.

And you’ll no doubt be surprised to learn that there isn’t any magical single product or service that can turn any newbie affiliate into a resounding overnight success (unfortunately).

You see, it’s actually a combination of several different techniques that amounts to the perfect affiliate marketing educational solution.

A solution that the Powerhouse Affiliate — the definitive, comprehensive affiliate marketing community with a dedicated forum — just so happens to have.

The Powerhouse Affiliate was created by online marketing experts to properly and effectively guide and teach the online marketing experts of the future.

Do you think this future is going to include you?

When it comes to online marketing, there’s oftentimes a clear line between spending too much time on researching and learning various new aspects of the industry, and actually taking the time to implement these aspects personally yourself.

It’s been said countless times before that the best way to learn the cold, hard realities of the affiliate marketing industry is to make your own mistakes and then subsequently learn from them. But we may perhaps take this for granted that people will know how to learn from their own personal mistakes.

The Powerhouse Affiliate meanwhile gives you all of the resources and tools you could ever hope or imagine in your quest for Internet marketing greatness.

There’s case, studies, guides, personalized one-on-one coaching and, of course, a highly educated, patient, no-nonsense community whose expertise is yours to utilize as much as you’d like.

Personal Learning and Professional Development

Identifying The Needs

Many people profess to be lifelong learners, but how many have taken classes or received training in the past year?

Just a couple of years ago, some interesting facts were published by Pew Research in the form of infographics below.

Personal Learning and Professional Development

Personal learners account for 74% of adults, meaning they've engaged in at least one of several different activities to enhance their knowledge about something that personally interests them in the last 12 months.

Professional learners, or those who have taken a course or received further training in the last 12 months to improve their job skills or knowledge related to career progression, account for 63 percent of working adults (or 36 percent of all adults).
