Why are popular Myths About Affiliate Marketing just myths? Is arbitrage still worth attention? Specialists often rush to conclusions and bury profitable areas at the peak of their popularity, which is a big mistake. 

Should we worry about the end of the arbitrage era?

Currently, arbitrage is literally taking work away from air sellers, as it’s extremely profitable to pay for work results, not for empty promises.  

Thanks to the rapid development of technology and global trends, the lifespan of many areas continues to extend. And arbitrage is no exception.

For example, during the war in Ukraine, NFTs gained massive popularity, allowing more progressive people to help the military and civilians affected by Russian aggression.

New people, new strategies, new tools. Arbitrage lives, develops, and will bring profit for a very long time, as there will always be relevant verticals.

Myth 1: Want to learn – pay money.

Do you really have to sell your soul to the devil to buy 100500 courses and only after that you will be able to earn on arbitrage?

The problem is that along with other directions, banal fraud and info-gypsyism are actively developing, where the main goal is to sell unnecessary courses to all comers. You may be sold a course with outdated information or promised incredibly high earnings, which should immediately raise suspicions.

No, we do not undervalue quality educational products from experienced arbitrators, but this is not the only way to enter the field.

Google and the ability to make queries will always help. Look for relevant forums and Telegram channels, where you can find necessary information for a start for free. And, let’s be honest, instead of courses, money can be spent on initial tests to consolidate the knowledge gained in practice.

If you need help, try to become an assistant to practicing arbitrators or farmers. There you will gain experience and see if this is really your element.  

Myth 2: Arbitrator = Scammer.

How you will be perceived depends on your choice and honest performance of your duties.

The offers chosen do not always fully meet the user’s need. And the arbitrator cannot precisely determine the quality of all products. 

However, it is not worth dismissing the entire niche because of a certain percentage of dishonest advertisers or bad products.

If you have doubts, do not start working with a product that does not seem promising to you. Choose only what you are most confident in to earn a decent reputation.

Myth 3: Conferences are pointless.

The main goal of conferences is the exchange of knowledge and useful acquaintances.

Without networking, it will be difficult to blend into the crowd.

No master class will provide as many opportunities to connect with specialists useful to you. Put away your introversion and make sure to visit at least one conference.

After talking to key managers, you will be able to catch useful insights, get feedback on your thoughts, find partners, and, in general, increase work efficiency.

Myth 4: Copying is the key to success.

Yes, you can replicate other people’s cases. But think about it: why would someone tell you their recipe for success in detail?

If a certain algorithm has worked once, it doesn’t mean that it will now always yield astronomical results.

The more repetitions, the less chance of further success. Therefore, no one will share a truly relevant and profitable strategy.

Consider two important aspects: analysis and uniqueness. You must analyze published cases and adapt them to yourself, to extract valuable data and, by testing, create a unique strategy and make a profit.

Myth 5: There are too many arbitrators.

Do not perceive competition as a problem. Competition is a common phenomenon for profitable niches. 

The arbitrator’s goal is to thoroughly research the niche, choose the most profitable offers from partners, study all the necessary tools, and optimize all processes in their work. 

While learning, you will make mistakes, but they should not stop you. Because it is your ability to solve problems and skills acquired in practice that will determine your competitiveness as a specialist.

The more experience you gain, the more in demand you will be.

Myth 6: An arbitrator means a violator.

There is nothing illegal in being an arbitrator. You do the same as marketers, but using intermediaries. 

An arbitrator pays for advertising out of their pocket, so doing their job poorly is not profitable. 

It is important to understand that the arbitrator is responsible for effectively setting up advertising to get profit from it 💰.

However, they should not influence what the client receives after completing the deal. Therefore, if a product or service, for example, does not meet the stated quality, all complaints should be processed and analyzed directly by the business owner or their managers.

The arbitrator is also responsible for advertising prohibited goods or services and timely payment of taxes. An experienced accountant who will manage your sole proprietorship’s accounting can help with the latter.

Myth 7: Success is guaranteed only with a perfect set of skills.

You don’t need to know everything to start. As we mentioned above, it is worth constantly improving and not stopping after failures. 

You can get basic knowledge during training and then start practicing immediately to save time.

We advise not to delve too deeply into all adjacent spheres, as specific knowledge is not always useful. Whether it’s programming or design – some things might not be needed at all, while others can be outsourced.

A large number of tasks can be delegated: from translating texts for advertising to creating creatives and preparing landing pages. Often, such services are also available in affiliate programs. 

Myth 8: A large budget is needed to start.

This is just an excuse not to start.

Yes, it’s not free. However, the actual amount of investment needed to start and for the first connection is unlikely to frighten you.

Most likely, you will not be able to cover these expenses at first, but even small amounts will lead to acquiring the necessary skills.

As in any field, there is no need to rush and invest everything you have saved. Initially, you need to gain your first experience. Then you will feel the need to gradually increase your investments. 

If you do not have starting capital, try to join an arbitrage team or an affiliate team.

Myth 9: Arbitrage brings easy money.

“Just 2 hours a day is enough to earn up to 2000 dollars and enjoy life.” 

Such a statement can only be made by someone who has not delved into the subject and is looking for easy earnings.

Arbitrage is a constant analysis of the market, searching for winning strategies, testing connections, and optimizing campaigns. This work requires self-discipline and a desire for self-improvement. 

The obvious plus is the possibility of remote work. However, unlike office plankton, you will most likely work more than 8 hours a day.

Today we have examined the myths about arbitrage and hope we have convinced you that it is too early to draw a line. This sphere is multifaceted, promising, and profitable. Your success and its future depend on your efforts. Do not listen to gossip and idle talk, listen to professionals. And of course, don’t forget about our Telegram community.
