    Well to be candid, i am just 8 month into Affiliate Marketing i have not made a dime, it has been a frustrating journey for me, but i want you to mentor me, and i

    will appreciate that if you can connect me on that. It has been just so frustrating doing what i am doing couple with little or nothing resources.

    I will appreciate if you can just be my mentor, my Skype ID: fmbaba01
    I even have a small blog also.

    I honestly seek help, i wish to be part of the team and also learn. I did discover that the way Affiliate marketing is going, it will be more better to work as a team

    rather than a lone ranger. I will appreciate if i can get this help ok...

    Hello @Fapohunda Olufemi John , welcome to AffiliateFix! Great to have you join us.

    If you have been at this for 8 months and not earned anything yet, I can only surmise that you have missed quite a few of the necessities to get up and running with positive earnings. That's okay, let's get you on the right path here.

    First of all, you are asking for a mentor, this isn't necessary and it is very unlikely at the moment. You see, being a mentor for someone is extremely time consuming. To be a mentor to someone requires a great deal of time and that is why every mentor, on average, requires their protege to have proven skills upon which to build. You currently do not have any proven skills from what you have said.

    Secondly, and most important here, you have come to a community full of awesome and capable marketers that give incredible guidance to Newbies everyday. You need to use this community as an instructor to help you build the necessary skills to start earning. If you follow the guidance you will receive in this community, then you will learn to earn and build your business.

    The advice below has launched the successful careers of many hundreds of marketers from this community. Just take it by the numbers, complete all the tasks and start taking action.

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

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
