    Hi my name is Bilal and I am willing to learn and invest in affiliate marketing. I am initially thinking to invest approx 2000 dollars. What are your suggestions which affiliate marketing program I should join and traffic source initially. Is it fine to join just one affiliate network and one traffic source web site initially? Which products are more suitable?

    Hi, Bilal and welcome to AffiliateFix!

    The more initial investment, the better but I believe $2,000 is enough to get you started.

    What vertical are you interested in promoting?

    You can browse networks and traffic sources here: Resources | Affiliate Marketing Forum | AffiliateFix

    Sure. Especially the traffic source. Learn to master it, or decide it's not for you before moving on to another.

    Re the networks, more than one is fine, too. Sometimes, you find the same offer on more than one network. That allows you to test the same offer from different sources. Or, you may want two different offers in the same vertical, something like that.

    That's wayyyy too broad a question to answer. Which vertical, target audience, traffic source, etc.

    Do you have any prior experience in CPA/affiliate marketing? If not, I highly suggest that before you spend any money that you read the threads that @tyoussef posted for you. Also, check out the Newbie Helpdesk

    Anytime you have a question, need help, or want to share some good information, just start a thread to let us know.

    Enjoy the forums, Bilal! :)

    Welcome to AffiliateFix!

    Everyone has to start somewhere. Be active in this community, 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 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.

    Check out the new enhanced membership option here as it is full of great tools and features.

    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!

    To make your affiliate program more visible you could try some of these ways; If you will promote a product as an affiliate then choose something that is trusted or you have tried yourself. Then focus more on long term affiliate commissions where you keep earning commissions for many months or even years down the line. There's a bunch of sources that you can use nowadays especially with the several social media channels to engage with customers, might want to take advantage of this.
