    Hello guys!
    I'm really exited to dive into this affiliate business! My goal is to make $100,- a day.
    In my previous attempts I failed miserably. I used Clickbank + DirectCPV with a highly Targeted URLs lists, but after wasting $100,- I still got no conversions.
    Now I'm trying to get into Maxbounty and trying to find the best and cheapest traffic sources.
    If you got tips for me, please let me know! I appreciate it!

    Hi @mpieters95 , welcome to the AffiliateFix! Great to have you with us.

    Okay, eliminate two of these mind set patterns of yours. For one, your attempts did not fail miserably. Instead, you didn't refine your campaigns to return a positive ROI, or you didn't have your funnel set up properly, or your copy sucked, or you didn't have good landers, or your traffic source isn't appropriate for your campaign, or you didn't split test, etc., etc., etc.

    Secondly, you didn't waste your money, you bought data. If you didn't use a tracker, then you didn't collect all of the data you should have. So many new to this business say they are losing money when they get no conversions. All of us, everyone of us, spends money on campaigns everyday that do not produce a positive ROI. It rarely happens immediately. We spend money to collect data in our trackers so that we can identify where the clicks and/or conversions are coming from as well as where the non converting traffic is coming from so that we can eliminate what doesn't produce and focus our efforts and investments on what does work.

    Okay, so you are trying to find "trying to find the best and cheapest traffic sources" This will never be one in the same, not ever. The best are always expensive, always. The cheapest traffic sources are tier 2 and tier 3 sources and they require a great deal more work to achieve conversions than tier 1 sources. They can absolutely prove to be productive, but they do typically require more work to eliminate non converting traffic.

    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!
