    Hello everyone.

    A friend of mine introduced me to the world of AM about 2 weeks ago. Was totally confused for about a week and then semi confused for another week. Now, I'm a little bit more knowledgeable, but still very much a super newbie.

    I've decided to go with Facebook to get my feet wet because my buddy has been doing it a little longer than I have and he's starting to become profitable. I'm real close to launching my first campaign, but I feel like I'm missing something. So I keep reading things to see if I can spot what I think I'm missing. As my friend told me 'You can read all you want, but nothing is better than you actually doing it. You will learn so much more'. Which is true because I told him that same thing on something else we had started doing together some years ago. LOL.

    I guess I'm a little nervous because I have a small budget, so any tips or inspiration will be greatly appreciated.

    I'm ready to jump in the pool and document my journey for the next super newbie that comes along.

    Thanks for reading.

    You don't need a lot of money to start. Study, learn, ask questions.

    If you've ever earned any money from marketing why not post up a success story of your earnings and you'll automatically get entered into our $500/monthly giveaway here.

    Hello @StakChedda , welcome to AffiliateFix! Great to have you with us.

    This is understandable and is a frequent experience for Newbies. Not to worry, there solutions to this dilemma.

    There is a balance between them that you will find and adjust on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis.

    An appropriate budget is determined through a plan. You must have a plan to build a budget around. Trying to do it the other way (building a plan around a budget) is counter intuitive and rarely works.

    Looking forward to your Follow Along, we have many and yours will be a very welcome addition. You will get an abundance of members offering up awesome advice and guidance.

    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 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!
