    I've been doing internet marketing, mainly affiliate stuff since about 2006 or 7. I started out with a simple adsense website that was setup on a proxy, we called it proxyvan and it soon started earning about 20 dollars a day from clicks. Though we never made any affiliate money with the site we called it a success because of the 40 or so thousand visitors that came to it each money. Later down the road in life I created a hiphop/rap site for lil wayne called newlilwayne(com) (don't know if I can post urls yet) It was a success until I sold it to somebody for $200 dollars and it grew up to about 500 thousand unique visitors a day. It was a punch to the stomach because of my actions but hey I learned from it. These days I'm still in the space and still get excited about strange and offbeat projects. I tend to think my mind works a little differently since I know what an affiliate link looks like but hey lol everyone or everybody is making money online. It's a fun place to be though sometimes it can be daunting if you're not making consistent streams of income. Any way I just wanted to introduce my self and start looking around the forums, I have a site for sale right now (that was my first post) and this place looks a lot better than Digital Point (imo) but who am I to judge. Might just be beginners shock at the nice way this website is cleany and elegantly put together.

    PS I'm going to be buying the product for $147 just not at this time. Those tools like awesome and I've been looking for a package like the one that is offered here on affiliatefix.

    @TuesZ

    Hello, welcome!

    Well, that is quite a resume of sorts you have there! Excellent background for expanding your business in this industry.

    I agree though I probably shouldn't say so.

    That's actually an asset in this biz, if you ask me.

    No problem, we'll still be here when you're ready.

    They very seriously are!

    I'm looking forward to reading your posts and discussions. If you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to start a thread and let us know. Someone will drop in to help you.

    Thanks a lot @azgold for making me feel at home! :)

    How do you feel about the .xyz domains? And the promotion namecheap is running to sell them at only $0.88 cents a pop? Just curious and I figured we could discuss it here...

    You're very welcome! :)

    Re the .xyz domains...I wouldn't take one if they gave it to me. It is heavily associated with spammers. I'm not saying that all of them are but that's the rep for those. Because a lot of spammers have (and probably still are) used them.

    Wow didn't know that... I like sticking to .coms and really don't even like other tlds other than .com

    I didn't know the .xyz's had such a bad rap, thanks for the insight...

    YW. Yeah, .com is the best, especially if you can find one related to your niche or brand.

    I still like to go for keyword .coms even though I read somewhere that it doesn't even really that much matter in Google's SERPS but at the same time if its descriptive why not grab it if its available. I always used to put the word new in the beginning of my suggested keyword and had some decent success with that. I.E. newstereos.com as opposed to stereos.com

    Welcome to the forum Matthew!

    Perfect!

    For a while, it seems to me, G was punishing sites that had exact match domains but I don't think it matters so much anymore. Maybe. I can't keep up with the mysterious workings, wild changes and ridiculous rules that has been the Google of recent years.

    Anyway, sounds like you have an idea in mind. Hope you'll share your journey once it's percolated and ready to go. :)

    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.

    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!

    @T J Tutor you're the best for posting this, really... thanks! I've been spreading my self too thin thinking about too many ideas and implementing them with my wheels spinning. I think you're absolutely right that I need to focus some blocks of time to affiliate fix and really get in the door again. Honestly, I left the industry for a while and a lot has changed since I was gone and recently re-introduced to marketing/advertising. I'm glad you're pointing me in the right direction because I can see that you have a quality community here with a bunch of smart people in all levels of success so with that being said hats off to you sir. I will spend some more time on affiliatefix as it's only been a few days and I've been working on my little side projects that aren't getting me anywhere instead of conversing and talking to members here on the forum and learning again. I'm going to get my self in gear, I appreciate the motivation and the well put out point. I need to get active! lol I appreciate all your wisdom. Thanks again, Matthew
