    Hi all,
    I am a newbie here, and I have been doing affiliate marketing for almost two years. The first year I made so many mistakes that cost me a fortune. During my 2nd year, I met other affiliate marketers, and we've been working together for almost a year. I still have some loss, but it is getting smaller. My goal at the end of 1 year is to make $1000 profit a day and only work up to 30 hours a week.

    Traffic sources:
    Zeropark
    Bing
    Google
    Go2Mobi
    50OnRed
    7 search
    Propelmedia

    Affiliate Networks:
    Avazu
    VipResponse
    Aragon Publishing
    Clickbank
    Maxbounty
    Bizprofits

    Trackers:
    Clickmagick
    Voluum

    Hosting:
    Hostmonster
    AWS.amazon.com
    JvzooHost
    Namecheap

    Intelligent tools:
    Longtail Pro
    Adplexity

    I am going to put more information as I keep on updating this thread. Let's compete and help each other at the same time. ;)

    @atc90211 - welcome to AFix and your first follow along journey!

    You have lots of prep work done and an ambitious goal. Looking forward to following your progress.

    Have you chosen a starting point (vertical, traffic source)?

    You can set up a follow along journey for each, if you want. That would allow members to offer you tips, suggestions and help as you go. We have a lot of very experienced marketers here.

    I'm excited to watch you move towards your goal! :)

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will setup a "follow-along-journey" note for each campaign.

    Try to focus on one thing, before proceeding with another.

    I have ADHD so it's very hard for me to focus on one thing at a time lol. But thanks for the advice and I will try my best not to over-extend myself.

    Don't set a goal for 1k/day, it's destructive, everything else will feel like nothing if you set the bar that high. You should aim for getting a profitable campaign first, even if it's only making you $1/day. Everybody see's the big guys making 5 figures per day and set their goal for that, there's been plenty of follow alongs here with eager people that want to make a million $, which later abandon affiliate marketing because they figure out that it's not just uploading a landing page, starting the campaign and watch the money grow, it's hard work - what is your advantage over everybody else?

    As everybody else has pointed out here.

    Don't get shiny object syndrome and start jumping around different verticals, different traffic source's, heck don't jump around with different trackers. Learn one vertical until you're the best in the world in that one, only then can you dismiss it as being "useless" or "dead" if you're not making money.

    I hope you'll stick to it and make it work, if you got any questions feel free to quote me here, or PM me!

    Also, $1000 per day, with 30 hours per week? Are you sure you didn't mean 30 hours per day? :D

    Here's how much time it took for me, during a WEEK, to get my first profitable campaign.

    That's how much work it takes.

    Just so you understand what you're getting yourself into!

    Thanks for the advice, Comegetbravo. I forgot to mention that my very short term goal is $5-10/day, but $1k is my ultimate aim one year from now. You are correct that I shouldn't jump to so many tracking platforms, so I am sticking with Voluum and Clickmagick. Based on my past mistakes, I shouldn't do too many campaigns without other affiliates' help until I've gained a better understanding. I am mainly focusing on Bing by myself, but I also have 1-2 lead gen campaigns where other experienced affiliates have been helping me.

    Lol
    I am heading towards 70 hr/week work currently, and soon I will be working above 100 hours in a week:(. I know that 30 hr/week work sounds unrealistic for now, but after I've gained more experiences and better knowledge in one year, then I will hire Virtual Assistants to help me so I can work less.

    Thanks, game 333. I am mainly focusing on Bing, but I need to learn one more traffic source such as Zeropark with the help of other affiliates. I am also interested in other traffic types such as Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, but I don't put my money on them until I've made enough profits from the other two traffic sources.

    I am gld that you have some goal se that you need to achieve. It is the only way that you can grow and also track the growth that you have achieved so far. I will say that now that you have worked with several networks for like two years, you need to note down the mistakes that you have been making over a period of time. Thereafter, you will be able to learn on how best to avoid the mistakes especially as you start a new journey. It is the best way to keep going.
