    I've been working at affiliate marketing for some time but never got anywhere. I've been struggling to find a clear way forward on how to find good products and the best way to market them. I've tried PPC, I made a couple of pence and spent many pounds, and I've set up websites to promote products but always felt overwhelmed by the complexities of managing the content, the products, etc etc and have sort of got stuck. When I found out about AffiliateFix I thought I'd join because it looked like good value and that it would be helpful in my quest to educate myself in the art of affiliate marketing. So here I am, looking forward to getting into all the information on the site and using it to help me progress things to make my first money online.

    Hello @Mott and welcome to the AffiliateFix and the Dojo! Great to have you join us.

    Sounds like you have milled around long enough to have a few chops developed. Maybe it's just a matter of tweaking to get the cash flow working a little smarter for you. I see you are not a complete Newbie, but let me impart a few things I offer up to all Newbies and the not so Newbies. I am certain you know much of this, just want to cover all the bases.

    Perhaps this will help you get some answers and develop a plan for your beginnings:

    Perseverance, dedication, and taking action are the cornerstones of the success you will obtain.

    As a Newbie, you need to read, study, invest, and implement.

    Read
    Read through the various areas of the forum to learn about the types of marketing available for your new business. Make a list of all the types of marketing and take some notes along the way. Then determine which area of marketing with which you will start your journey.

    Do this to select an area of marketing to start, as well, do this to select a tracker, a traffic source, and to select a vertical.

    Then read up on the affiliate networks and select two to begin with that will serve your needs and the types of offers you would like to promote. Put your application in and they will call you for an interview. Be professional and be prepared to answer some questions about how you will promote offers, do you have a website, are you a Newbie, etc. Please note, if you join the Dojo, we have a thread there that can offer assistance in getting accepted to some of the networks.

    Study
    Now that you have selected a basis to begin, read all of the threads in this forum that relate to your initial selections so that you have a rudimentary understanding of their features and benefits.

    Invest
    You will require some investment. A VPS server, domains, traffic, landing pages, etc. You will need a budget for daily, weekly, and monthly expenses. This will change over time and you will need to update it often so that you know exactly what your costs and earnings are.

    Implement
    This is where it all starts to earn. You must now begin to implement what you have established as your foundation for your business.

    Here is some advice and guidance that will help you establish your initial goals:

    Make sure you complete the following first.

    Every business needs:

    1. a plan
    2. a schedule for research, learning, and execution
    3. a budget.

    Remember to read through our WIKI and get to know the basics as well as some of the buzz words in the industry.

    I also recommend reading the following thread:

    As a Newbie, What Stops You From Getting Started

    Here is a set of immediate goals:

    1. Get a VPS
    2. Select a vertical
    3. Select a tracker
    4. Select a couple of networks and get your approval
    5. Select a traffic source
    6. Create a schedule for researching, learning (training), and working. This is a business, treat it as such!
    7. Create a budget for every expense (daily, weekly, monthly)
    8. Be very active in this forum by researching, asking questions, helping others when you are able.

    As well, I highly recommend you join the DOJO as it is full of great tools and contributions for successful marketers. Click the banner below to learn more.
