Hello everyone, I'm Charles Clark. I'm not really new to affiliate marketing, but I am new to this forum. I have been marketing online for over 5 years now but have only recently started to see real progress. Affiliate marketing is a very profitable business to be involved with but for most people the learning curve is just too much to handle. My advice to all newbies is, if you really have a feeling inside that you want an alternative to your current 9-5 just don't give up keep reading and asking as many questions as you can and things will eventually come to light. As I said before I have been involved for over five years and the first 3-4 of them were very disappointing but well worth the effort.
