Getting Started With Affiliate Marketing
When I was just getting started with affiliate marketing I really didn’t have a single clue how to do it or even what I was supposed to be doing on a daily basis. There may have been a few newbie courses available back then but even if I found one I had no money to part with to buy one.
Through trial and error, mostly error, I eventually found my way. And honestly, I’m not bitching. The online school of hard knocks taught me what works and what doesn’t work and I probably learned more from my frequent failures than I did through my rare successes.
At this point as a seasoned affiliate marketer I’m comfortable teaching new marketers like you how to get started the right way without wasting time and money or making the stupid mistakes that I made. So with that in mind I have put together a step-by-step checklist of what you need to be doing in the first 30 days to get your internet marketing business off and running.
It’s important to take note that the internet, and thus internet marketing, changes with lightning speed. What worked well yesterday may not work well today. (i.e. Pinterest affiliate links were recently banned and removed from the site literally overnight putting many marketers in a bind). In fact it’s often said that a full year in the real world is like 3 months in internet time. That’s how rapidly it changes.
With that in mind I’ve made the following training lessons as evergreen as possible. But inevitably some of these tutorials, although still valid in principle, will be outdated in instruction. So if you should run into some outdated information please contact me so I can update it and keep it accurate.
Alrighty then, let’s get started. And don’t blow off the #1 task on the list. Planning and goal setting is by far the most important single thing you need to do. And it absolutely has to be done first, before anything else:
