Here is a question that is asked usually. I thought this was a very good question and answer. The first and most important thing an affiliate should not do is give up. In any business you must have patience and learn all you can learn about the business and how everything works. You cannot learn everything in one day. The second thing an affiliate should not do is expect instant payment and instant riches. Have you heard of any business where people got paid and became rich immediately? I haven't. I don't think you have either. It takes work, hard work. Even when you work in a field to harvest grain or fruit, you have to pick what you harvest in the hot sun and work your muscles and keep moving. You get paid according to the work you put in during each day's work. You get what you put into the work. The third thing an affiliate should not do is rush through the site and all the links to gain VP without really reading and understanding what is written in every area on the site and saving or printing the information so that it can be referred to later offline. There is no room for laziness here. It is important to read, read and read some more. You never stop reading or learning. The final thing that affiliates should not do is neglect studying the rules and policies, and, for that matter, any business venture. Rules are made to be followed. This prevents others from getting hurt. It also ensures there is fairness. If you don't familiarize yourself with the rules and policies, you could find yourself out of the business, without any hope of returning. You could also find yourself in a worse situation with the laws of your country or, for that matter, God's laws. Again, these are to be followed for your good and the good of everyone else. May this answer be of help to you in your work with your affiliates. Have a productive and successful day! Thank You!
