I am doing affiliate marketing for a year and have only managed to earn only $54. I think my lack of consistency and zero funds to spend on the website is holding me back.

I find it difficult to say that, but luck also plays a big role. This generally applies to success. There are so many people who do everything right and still fail. When you look at what people are doing who are successful, make sure to also look at how many people are doing the same thing and are not successful. This is the only way to assess whether a method is really promising. We tend to only pay attention to the winners and believe that we just need to copy their behavior. This phenomenon is also known as survivorship bias.

Long story short: There is often no difference between a successful and an unsuccessful merketer except that one is successful and the other is not.

Do you consider yourself successful?

Luck is a factor but more than that, is an excuse for those who fail and don't take responsibility for their failures. Making money online is quite easy once you learn how to, and as long as someone has basic skills, puts perseverance and hard work sooner or later will crack it.

Successful people are those who can create different income assets and keep them going for many years. Answering op question, I believe this is a matter of hard work, experience, perseverance, intelligence, scaling, and reinvesting most of the money into work related projects

You basically answered your own question if you have no money to invest then any business will fail if you have not budget to rank up any SEO site requires spending money every month in most cases if not your competition will start out ranking.

Online businesss compared to traditional businesses are lot cheaper to start since as long as you have a computer and internet access and you can buy a domain name for like $6 +$5=$11 per month for the basic so a lot cheaper than the cost of rent or mortgage of physical business and less tax to pay as well normally.

To rank up a site it will be down to you doing a lot of work per month and spending on things to boost your such as backlinks time or money wise,good onpage,Ahrefs,Semrush,Scrapebox among other software you make like or want .

A Successful one will had made okay to good money online such as being able to use that money to buy a house,car or something else expensive,improved their life one way or another as well.

Unsuccessful one will normally be like this

  1. Always complain
  2. Never do anything requiring time or effort to make it happen
  3. Have no money to invest or very little
  4. Not a technical mind
  5. Always buy a course as like a quick way to learn of fake gurus.

A successful internet marketer who succeeds establishes clear goals and devises an effective strategy to achieve them even when things get tough.

While unsuccessful ones only make a business plan but never put in the effort to achieve their objectives.

When we talk about internet marketing it's definitely focus.

You need to be persistent and try to stick to one thing even during hard times. This is something most people lack (including myself) So that's why I am trying to stick to one field from now on.

I'd suggest you read this thread, it might help you.

Yes I do.
However, I realize that many factors contributed to it that I had no control over. For example, I was born in a first world country and had access to free education. In addition, business opportunities arose for me that were more of a coincidence. Sure, I also work 70 hours a week. However, if we take it exactly, even the willingness to work hard is to a certain extent genetically determined and therefore coincidental.

What I was getting at with my post, however, is survivorship bias. I just wanted to point out that the base rate has to be taken into account when comparing the characteristics of successful and unsuccessful people.
If you want to know whether a certain character trait or a certain method leads to success you have to take the succesful and the unsuccessful people into account. Not only the succesful.

Yup, Well said! That's why I am learning front end web development. So, that I don't depend solely on Internet marketing and also have some money from job to invest into website. But I want to ask how do people manage a full-time job with internet business? Is it a bad idea or good idea?

Thanks.Sounds good well to be honest most people generally have other jobs while doing SEO work many people do it part time for example say you are an accountant you may then spend 10 hours doing SEO work per week but you pay others to do the SEO work for you so then your SEO sales goes up while you do your full time job then if you make enough money from the SEO stuff then you turn your online business into your full time job.

This is what I am scared of. I was a hard-working guy and had a decent academic grades. However, everything changed after 10th. I got really low marks in 11th and got failed in 12th class. Then after 12th, I failed one year in b.tech. I try really hard, but these failures have really demotivated me.

If you look into rich people a fair amount of them can't read or write at all but either way are millionaires or richer as well so your education does not govern your success level in a lot of cases.

A lot of businesses now prefer people without degrees for jobs since most people now know a degree is a piece of paper not you learning powerful information to make you good at something just you remember theories or how to answer questions in most cases for college or university often.

For example one of my friends was high ranking manager for Tesco he had to shop his Store manager who got a degree here is why in his own words" The guy would always be doing wrong things then doing stupid things at work which made no sense to me when I asked him why he was always doing wrong things at work management wise he would tell me back I have a Business Management Degree he told me to do so got to follow it after a month of him keep getting worse and worse I had to sack him which is why I believe the degree will sometimes make people more inconifdent at work than average high school kid"

Optimism and pessimism are not necessary, only rely on statistic data, and some good luck. Everyone can eat and cook, but only Chef know how and when to put what kind of spices(key point).

Under no circumstances should you be discouraged by school grades. What Polecat says is 100% true. I don't know how old you are, but I'm sure you will learn this soon enough.

in the internet world. traffic is everything.
to get traffic fast, you need to spend money.
to get quality traffic, you need to constantly test the traffic.
without money, the process will be super long.
money can shorten the process.

you choose what is your resource.
rich people buy "time" (man-hour) with money.
poor people provide the man-hour to earn money.
it is time vs money.
