    Welcome to AFix, @marzz123 ! Happy to have you here, joining our community.

    Like the others, I await your answer re if you have a starting point in mind. It's okay if you don't. Just do some reading and you'll figure out which method you want to try first.

    When you have questions, just start a thread in the appropriate forum and someone will help you. :)

    Meantime, these are the places that I like to recommend newbies check out:

    Hi @marzz123 , it's great to have you with us. Welcome to AffiliateFix!

    Everyone has to start somewhere. Be active, ask loads of questions, take action, and be committed. That's how it gets done!

    Use this forum as a mentor. It's full of members at every level of experience which makes for many balanced perspectives for a Newbie to learn from. Take the time to read through the forums here and see for yourself that the Newbies achieving success have actually dedicated themselves to success in this industry and reaping the rewards by following the advice of fellow AffiliateFix members, being dedicated to success, putting the time in, and making the necessary investments. You cannot shortcut the learning curve. It goes slower for some and it goes faster for others. Everyone has their own intellectual absorption rates, skill development pace, commitment level, and budgets.

    You are a FIX'er now and that means you have the world at your feet with IM. Here are a few suggestions:

    Read and learn through extensive reading in this community. Select one vertical. one tracker, and one traffic source. Learn from your fellow members here to master each one of them (a couple of months). Then you can expand and replicate your successes.

    As a Newbie, you need to read, study, invest, and implement. Perseverance, dedication, and taking action are the cornerstones of the success you will obtain.

    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.

    [​IMG]

    Remember This! : Nothing has to be perfect before you start. Read & study, but invest and implement at the same time. You cannot learn all of it from reading and studying. A great deal of your learning comes from implementing!

    Good Luck!

    Well so far I have been looking at free methods of promotion. Things like traffic exchanges and free mailing lists like Herculist. These have been very unsuccessful so far and a bit like a snake swallowing its tail.
    I have created a profile in IBO toolbox and paid for some advertising there with no real results so far. Everyone there has something to promote and are more interested in doing that.

    I have placed a paid classified ad in the Warrior Forum which got a few views and posted in free classified like Adpost and US FreeAds.

    What I am promoting is an affiliate program for a mobile gaming app so it may be a bit different than traditional affiliate products ....or not. Please PM me if you'd like to have a look and offer any suggestions.

    I will read your suggestions and go from there. Thanks.

    Don't hold your breath on those. You might be able to get some optins for something related to free traffic/marketing methods...stuff other people using free traffic exchanges are looking for (same thing you are - free traffic to earn $).

    I'd still recommend that you use a good AR. Vertical Response and Benchmark offer theirs free up to x number of subs. There are probably others, too. The very best AR (IMO) is Aweber, which offers a $1 trial for the first month.

    So, you are looking for affiliates?

    I may have misunderstood.
