    I'm dany and I am a web developer but I'm tired of my lifestyle and I want to change to something else. I'm prepared to put the effort to learn aff marketing, my current job (web dev) isn't going to get better.
    so I have to change myself. I believe my background in web programming will help me move faster.
    it would be great if I had a coach but I know it's just a dream, nobody is gonna put time to teach for free (I'm willing to do some web dev instead though,I have a solid resume, I have worked in a lot of companies.)
    I already started with game cpa (i made around 40-50$ with 20$ investment), but I think they are scrubbing, and I stopped it, I got disappointed.

    Hi Dany,

    Nice to meet you :) yes, I'm sure coming from a web dev background will have its advantages for you when you start getting into affiliate marketing. Have you already signed up to any networks? I'm an AM at moreniche.com and I'm sure many other networks will be similar as we have a team of affiliate managers who are here to help and support you as much as you need.

    Although there are many affiliates on the network, each affiliate has their own preference to support, some are in contact with us daily to get advise and guidance and others only get in touch every once in a while. But, the main aim of our team is to help you as much as needed in order to become successful and achieve your affiliate marketing goals.

    The predominant niches within our network fall under weight loss, health and fitness, bodybuilding and male health, although there's a much broader range of merchants than that (pets, clothing, tech and so on). I guess it depends which vertical you are looking to promote in, but I'm sure most affiliate networks will be willing to help you :)

    Good luck with it!

    Hi, @iDany - welcome to the Fix!

    You have your "why" and are willing to do what it take - excellent start!

    thanks everybody,
    I believe you are right. :) I just need to keep trying.
    perhaps I should've been clear, I already know everything about tracking, optimization,seo and LP A/B testings. so I guess I just need to test and test to find a traffic source and an offer for that source.
    I know UX so I only do 1 landing page per campaign, I launched 1 landing page and I got 10 leads in 100 clicks (random popups), I did it again for another game and same thing happened (maybe I was just lucky) but I think I already have all the info.
    any way I think I know what to do now, I just have to test different sources and keep doing it.
    and since there is nothing else to learn at this point I don't think having a coach can be of any help, no coach is going to tell me his own traffic source (I know I wouldn't), so basically having a coach is useless for me.

    I'll create a journey thread and start from there.

    thanks everybody :)

    Hi @iDany , welcome to AffiliateFix! It's great to have you here.

    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.

    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!

    Welcome to the forum, man. Do you still have a pretty solid traffic source right now to make $20 - $40 a day? That's not too bad!

    What type of offers were you promoting mainly? Sounds like you got things rolling at least.

    it's not the traffic source, the traffic source was just random popups (though I chose the websites myself), the main reason of converting good was the LP.
