Keeping the failures aside. What to do next ?

I will give you two options…

#1 Option – Continuing Affiliate Business.

Well, you could continue doing affiliate marketing business. But this time, with more precautions. Find out why you failed before ? It gives you the best reason to do well next time. One important thing about affiliate marketing is that, you could not sell a poor quality product. In the sense, a product which doesn’t solves the buyer problem. So find a product which really solves a problem & promote it. Second, if you are using PPC ads (Adwords / YSM) then you should allocate enough budget & Select keywords for targeted traffic which are laser focused to buy product. If you are not willing to allocate budget then simply go for Article Marketing.

The advantage of Article Marketing is that you could promote an affiliate product but if no one buys the product, you don’t need to worry. Just pick another product & write another set of articles to sell it. This way, there is no loss in your business because investment is only “time” & “content” (provided you are writing your own content). Its a healthy approach too. Learn few Article Marketing Tips. Good Luck !
