7 Sure Reasons You Are Not Making Sales in Affiliate Program

Before you continue reading, I'd like to let you know this is going to be yet another Long post from me, so you'll need exercise Patience to read it from start, then reap the rewards when you finish it :)

Most of us know that Affiliate Programs or being an Affiliate is having ultimate Goal to making Sales and getting the commission for it, which means MORE Sales, MORE Commissions.

While I had shared My Success Story earning with Konga Affiliate Program, the story seems to be different for some Affiliates who are still trying so hard to reach Threshold where they would be Paid their commissions.

Truth is, to make sales, you definitely need to work both Hard and Smart at the same time, once this is in place, Sales and every other thing you wanted will start rolling in.

This was not easy for me at first, as I made few mistakes which were Reasons I wasn't making Sales when I started, hence my progress was Slow, but on the Long run, I made Corrections.

Reasons Why I made No Sales along with the Mistakes Some others are Making is what I'll be discussing and sharing with us, these mistakes are the Reasons you're not Making Sales as an Affiliate, there are many reasons but these are the Major Ones...


I made this mistake couple of times, and still notice many others make the mistake too.
As an Affiliate, you need know that IT IS NOT YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SELL, that is the job of the SALES PAGE which Your Affiliate links will lead the reader to. You rather need to help people with facts, Why they should Buy etc...

Most Affiliates make a big mistake of seeing New product(s), because it looks nice and Appealing to the eyes, instead of looking for ways to help their Readers or Buyers see reasons why this product will solve their problems, they just go ahead and Only describe the Product, everyone will say it's just a Review, brief Review is NOT enough at times.

Sometimes people will read your review but it'll end there, they won't buy, and even if they Do Buy, you won't make as many Sales as a Post Review that gives readers Facts, Helpful and Practical reasons Why they should buy a particular Product/Service or what makes Makes the product interesting for you to show it to them.


As the saying goes, Jack of all Trade, Master of NONE! It's same way with many people who do it wrong in Affiliate marketing, they join as many Programs as possible.Fine, it's cool to cultivate multiple streams of Income as you Work Online, but soon you'll find out you have too much to Handle.
Until I find a better One, Konga Affiliate and Jumia Affiliate Program, Amazon and Ebay with few other Web Hosting Programs like Arvixe are the best I can Recommend in my Locality for now.

I advice that Before joining a program, be watchful, depending on your energy, smartly pick two or three Affiliate programs you want to work with and stick with it.
Overloading yourself can really be a Bad idea.


When we go to the Cinemas, what we see and buy most are Pop-corn and Drinks, and that's because we'll be chewing and drinking while watching the movie. Those products sell since they are relevant to the Audience coming there.

Every blog, or type of business should have a niche or carve one, you won't sell T-Shirts to people that came to buy Blender. 
Likewise, You can't be Selling Music Tracks on a tech blog that discuss phones and computers.
Fine, there're some "Marketers" who would claim they can sell Sand to a man in the Desert, but how much Quantity will you really Sell? Will you profit as much from that type of sale?

Your Focus should be building a category and type of Audience and give them what they need that is related to both your Category and Audience.


Placing Banners is very Easy, they're ready-made for you to choose and Use on your Various Blogs or websites.
Banner works but This is Nothing Compared to Writing Reviews. 30 Sentences in a Review is Not much, I said 30,, you can Add more, you won't need talk too much.

Simple but Powerful Reviews that Describes the Product/Service will Convert and Bring you more sales than A Mighty Banner.

Best Reviews seen on the Web so far are the Ones that:
- Describe,
- Compare similar products,
- Tell facts and are open enough to tell PROS & CONS of the Products/service
- and of course are Very well SEO Optimised.


Some products/services are important to try out before Selling them. It will really be such an Ugly situation telling readers to Buy the Smartphone you reviewed saying it can Last 10 Hours On Enabled High Speed Internet but your readers found it stays Only 6 Hours after they bought it.
I am sure that's the Essence of the Hands-On reviews Tech-bloggers/Affiliates are doing these days, to Test and prove the functions of devices, and other products and services too.

Even if you can't lay your Hands on to Fully Test a Device Or Software, make sure you research and confirm your Information before publishing it to your readers.
The More you Give Honest Reviews, the More You'll get Higher Trust Flow from Readers and Buyers, Sales too will grow.

You've Heard about the Quote that says "GOOD NAME IS BETTER THAN RICHES Eh?" That's exactly what applies here.
You don't have to Lie because you want to make Sales. Convincing with a honest opinion is way better.


Last year, when I was still new to Affiliate Programs, I would pick my Aff-Link, Paste the link as Anchor Text in the post and Leave, I didn't even check if the Link works, in the End, No Sales. 
Careful when using your Aff-links,
-Make sure you open a New Tab, paste the link to Test whether it really opens the Correct Landing page of what you want to Sell.
- Smartly use your Aff-links where necessary in your Posts,
- they should be NO-FOLLOW Attribute links, 
- they should Not be too much on your Posts (Stuffing too much Links has Penalty from Google which can Harm you)

*TIP* - CLOAK YOUR AFF-LINKS - Shorten or Customise them
Some URLs are very Long because of (Campaigns) Perimeters in the URL.
You can use LINK SHORTNERS like GOO.GL OR BIT.LY for that. had helped me many times in customising while I still keep my links short.
That way, you can remember and even give out the link to anybody to use.

It'll definitely Help your Readers to visit and Buy easily, without Breaking a Thing.
Remember to always to test again and see if your shortened URL redirects to the right sales page.


I used to ignore this Part until I got to learn how experts are using it to Leverage Sales, it's Important you watch where your Sales are coming from, when you're Logged in to your Affiliate dashboard, check your Sales to see the pages that Led that highest numbers of Sales, now visit the post page or review, Study the pattern you used to write it and try it again with the Other posts/reviews you write soon.

If you're Yet to Find a Writing Pattern that sells, I'll give an example that yields good results:

Adding the BUY BUTTON immediately below the first paragraph (where The product is briefly described in 3 or 4 sentences), without wasting time this will help Readers to quickly & easily follow the Link to buy the product.

Many of them may have already seen the review before. 

Round Up

It's not been long I started taking Affiliate Programs serious, but so far, it had been a cool experience earning with it. I am still learning as you and as long as We can Focus on Increasing Our Productivity in Affiliate Marketing, the Profits will Increase too, perhaps you may end up putting your AdSense money aside, yeah You heard me right, Affiliate Earnings can make you Put AdSense aside.
There're people already making 6-Figures from Affiliate Programs alone, hope the tips I stated will Help, let's Make More Sales and Join the Millionaires!
Cheers to your Online Success!

    Google to Launch "Buy buttons" On its Search-result pages In Coming Weeks

    The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the Search Engine Giant and company, Google Inc. will launch buy buttons on its search-result pages in coming weeks, a controversial step by the company toward becoming an online marketplace rivaling those run by Inc and eBay Inc. 

    Image Credit:
    Wall Street Journal pointed that Google will start displaying new Buy buttons when people search for products on mobile devices, according to people familiar with the launch (there were people who are very familiar with this launch from Google and they speak about it)
    The buttons will accompany sponsored—or paid—search results, often displayed under a “Shop on Google” heading at the top of the page. Buttons won't appear with the nonsponsored results that are driven by Google’s basic search algorithm.

     ALSO READ - Google Domains Gives Best Fully Customised Domains at Best Prices


    According to , Here's what (we think) we know:

    • If shoppers click on the buy buttons, they will be taken to another Google product page to complete the purchase. On that page, they will be able to pick sizes and colors and shipping options, as well as complete the purchase.
    • The products will still be provided and sold by retailers, rather than by Google.
    • Retailers including Macy’s Inc. are in talks with Google about taking part in the launch, the people added. (but there's been no comment from Macy's yet)
    • Google won't show buy buttons when shoppers search on desktop computers.
    • The program will start with a small percentage of the search traffic it handles.
    • The product pages where Google handles the purchases will be heavily branded for the retailers selling the items.
    • Google will let shoppers input payment credentials such as credit-card numbers one time, and the company will store those and automatically load them for future purchases on its shopping pages.
    • Google will still be paid by retailers through its existing advertising model, rather than taking a cut of the sales price of items

    I had been wondering what would be the first impression after big Online Retailers (both here in our continent, and Outside) and Shoppers saw this Headline, Google is at it again with a Business product, 
    is it something to worry about? OR will there be some kind of adaptation that needs to be applied by these retailers if Google eventually introduces their "BUY NOW" buttons, whatever the decision may be (I think) will depend totally on the information gathered at this period.
    What do you think?

    The Best 10 Amazing Mobile Apps For Every Nigerian

    In a country filled with Life, too many Activities and plans to be carried out by the average Nigerian, between the Ages of 17 and above, the Students, the Graduates and Working class, there are apps that these Nigerians can't do without, in everyday of their Lives, no matter how busy they are, in fact, these Apps even helps to make things easier, in terms of:
    • Communication with family, friends or colleagues,
    • Networking, 
    • Being Informed, 
    • and Apps that activates Leisure and help Relax after Daily Work.
    All the apps are available on Android (the most used Operating System). You'll also find them on iOS, BlackBerry, and Windows mobile.

    1. WHATSAPP:

    You'd agree with me that this Messaging App deserves number One Spot,

    WhatsApp had been helping everyone stay in touch with their phone Contacts, instant messaging plus easy sharing of Photos, Videos, and Voice Messages.
    Check every Nigerian's phone, whether it's a Smartphone or Not, you'll definitely see it there, not for fancy, they use it, everyday.
    Get WhatsApp - From Google PlayStore


    The mobile App of the Social Network Giant, Facebook.

    It's been estimated that over 11 Million Nigerians use Facebook, as things began to Strongly go mobile, around October 2012, when Facebook launched its Mobile App more than half of this estimated number moved from the Facebook Website to the Mobile App.
     had been a huge Success over time as the million numbers of Nigerians using Facebook mobile App keep growing and taking advantage of it.
    As a matter of fact, the users of Facebook Mobile App seem to do even more and enjoy more services like Facebook's Free Call Feature with Facebook Messaging App right from their Mobiles devices.

    Get Facebook Mobile App - From Google PlayStore | From iTunes App Store | From Windows Store


    Share Photos. Videos. Connect. The best memories across platforms!

    Who is not on Instagram yet?
    If you've not joined the amazing Social Media App, you're missing quite alot.
    Instagram is an online mobile App, which enables people to upload photos, short-videos, do their social networking services, and share them on a variety of social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr. 
    Millions of Nigerians use Instagram now, it has not only become another way of Sharing Photos and videos, just like Twitter, Fans on Instagram easily reach Celebrities and vice versa in real time.
    Individuals and Companies have also used this App to rise into Fame and turned into Big Brands by putting up their services, skills and, Talents, Sharing what they know Best on Instagram. It's an amazing App I must tell you.
    Get it on -  Google PlayStore  | iTunes App Store | Windows phone Store



    File Transfer & Share... in seconds.

    When you see that Interesting App, Game, Video that you want, despite how heavy it may be, ask a Nigerian how you can collect it into your Android, they will tell you to use Flash Share, or Xender.
    Xender is the coolest all-in-one file transfer and sharing app!
    Xender transfers anything you want, from documents, music, pictures, to videos and apps, in an instant with a few taps. Besides connection and transfer between Android devices, Xender also allows transfers between Android and iOS.
    Get it on - Google Playstore

    5. TWITTER

    Smartly Share and Connect with just 140 words.
    Twitter is yet another cool Social app, although, not too many Nigerians fancy it, probably because you're limited to only 140 words per tweet, they feel it's a bit complicated unlike Facebook, but quite a Million of Nigerians are on Twitter and thousands use it everyday.
    Many users find it fun or exciting to contribute their own content to Twitter (we call this “tweeting”).
    People who are interested in your Tweets may follow you and they'll see all the Tweets you share with them.
    It works along with HashTags and Trending hashtags. Twitter had hashtags long before Facebook later implemented the hashtag Feature on their social network. 
    Individuals with Thousands of Followers who know how to use Twitter like Instagram have also grown into Fame and made plenty of Cash with it.
    Check their Bio, you'll see something like "OFFICIAL ---- OR --- For BOOKINGS & SPONSORSHIPS EMAIL ME"... lol, although this practice is awful at times as it's been misused, that's By the way, Twitter is Fun for Nigerians.
    Get Twitter on Google PlayStore.

    6. SKYPE:

    Free Voice & Video Calls to Anybody, anywhere, anytime.

    Okay, I know WhatsApp nearly knocked Skype out of business when they released their Free Call Feature few months ago,..... but NEARLY CANNOT KILL A BIRD right?
    Viber, I think was even the App that was hurt when WhatsApp released its Free Call feature.
    Skype still remains unique, regardless the fact that WhatsApp rolled out Free calls.

    With Skype, many Nigerians make calls to Anyone in any part of the World at a very cheaper rate, also Call their own Skype to Skype Contacts For Free with Video Call Feature being Available too.
    It solves Thousands of Nigerians' call problems and almost everyone will agree that no similar App beats Skype.
    Get it on - Google PlayStore

    7. KONGA & JUMIA:

    Ah Yeah, Shopping from mobile
    Most of us are aware of how the Ecommerce websites are taking over Supermarkets and Local stores now. Trust me, when Nigerians hear the word, "ONLINE SHOPPING" the first thing that comes to their mind is Jumia or Konga.
    The Apps from these 2 Online retail giants is definitely the Next icon you'll find on every Nigerians' smart phones.

    Daily Transactions....GTBank, Diamond etc...

    I think I have 2 of these Installed, so I don't necessarily have to go the Bank to Deposit Cash, or recharge my Airtime, thousands of Nigerians do it directly from our smartphones.
    All the Banks seem to have an App now, the major ones I had seen people use were:
    • GTBank (Mobile Money)
    • Diamond
    • FirstBank
    • and UBA...
    Like I said before, all the Banks have Apps, You Can always Search the PlayStore using the Name of your Bank to find their Banking Apps.

    This App is a +1 to the list, if you scroll up to the start of this post, I said there are Apps that are used for Leisure right? All work and No play makes Jack a Dull boy, so I must add Akpos Jokes App.

    The 5 Must-Have Mobile Gaming Applications of 2015

    First and foremost I would like to personally thank Edi for allowing me to stop by and guest post on his awesome site. I personally feel the need to visit often after reading his articles on mobile phones and Samsung Galaxy specifically.

    Casual mobile gaming has become extremely popular with all ages. Applications are being created a on a daily basis due to this craze, but not all are worth your attention. Today I will be giving you some closer insight on some great gaming applications for the Android operating system that might peak your interest.

    Subway Surfers

    Runners became a popular genre in the mobile world a few years back but only a few have ever reached the detail and polish that Subway Surfers provides. In this game you take control of the main character Jake and his friends and attempt to dodge wacky objects like trucks, signs, and even trains while avoiding being captured by the security guard and his human hungry dog. Runners are usually just that, dodging and collecting to achieve the highest possible score, which you of course share with the world or friends locally. If you have never tried a runner this would be a great place to start as it’s the most polished and user friendly.


    Even though some might say he resembles a piece of poo I personally feel he is a lovable little creature. If you were a 90’s Tomagotchi fan, you are going to love this application, it plays just like an updated version of those old pet-caring toys. It’s rather simple and might be a little boring for non-nostalgia driven users. You take care of this creature, feed it, play with it, and even have a few mini games where you can interact with it personally.


     Minecraft Pocket Edition

    Since the release of its highly anticipated PC counterpart, Minecraft has grown to be an extremely well established franchise. Minecraft Pocket does not offer the same exact experience as the pc version, but still delivers, and is also growing every day with its constant content updates.
    The game provides you with an endless world that is randomly created; you are now the boss of your own adventure. Taking the time to decide what you would like to build first in this enormous game can be quite difficult. Imagine a game with an endless amount of Lego’s, but with added adventure, and you have Minecraft. If you have not played any other version it is highly recommended you give it a try.

    Candy Crush Saga

    A simplistic puzzle game turned into an addictive candy craze. If you have ever played games like Bejeweled or Columns then you are going to fall in love with Candy Crush. It has that classic connect 3 or more to burst lines aspect but with a twist. I have heard people calling it a cash cow as it does offer items which a player can purchase to make their gameplay easier, but I personally feel you do not need to purchase anything to have a lot of fun with Candy Crush, just a little patience.



    Plants vs. Zombies 2

    Where do I begin? This game holds a special spot in my heart as one of the greatest strategy games available on a mobile device. You take control of plants with special powers and use them to fight off waves of zombies that have only one thing on their minds, eating your brains. With all the wacky levels available and content being added monthly you cannot go wrong here. Plants vs. Zombies 2 plays a little different from its original counterpart as it’s a DLC (downloadable content) based game.



    Quick Tip:

    Being a mobile gamer you are bound to travel and of course, taking your games with you. When traveling abroad you might encounter country censorship or even find that certain games are unavailable for play due to region locking. Your information can also be at risk if you use a lot of public Wi-Fi.
    Using a mobile virtual private network can help you bypass these types of restrictions and secure your connection, thereby protecting your device. You do not have to worry, this is not illegal, and it does mask your device from strangers lurking, so nobody will ever know.

    I hope you find a game to play from this list and become as addicted as I once was, I wanted to choose games that were modern but also provided a unique experience.
