    First of all I'm very glad to find this awesome forum.

    My name is Chen and I'm just starting to figure out my way in affiliate marketing. I have 9 years of experience in online and mobile marketing as an employee in various companies but only recently I have realized the almost obvious thing - I have the knowledge and I work with affiliates as advertiser so I know this world a bit, but why not moving to the other side and become an affiliate myself??

    So now I'm trying to figure out my way - Mobile could be a good start. I hope that my experience will help me get accepted to one of the affiliate networks.

    Thanks for reading this and good luck to everyone :)

    Welcome to the AffiliateFix @$Chen$ ! Thanks for joining us here.

    Why not indeed! You gotta' do it.

    Your experience is definitely going to help you and I suspect that you have many insights that will help your fellow members. Don't worry about getting accepted into the networks, I am certain you will find a couple to begin with and a couple is all you require at the beginning. In face, stick with just two fro the time being until you get yourself up and running with a solid foundation.

    Perseverance, dedication, and taking action are the cornerstones of the success you will obtain.

    As a Newbie, you need to read, study, invest, and implement.

    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.

    Mobile is the key. Everyone is navigating in Mobile Internet, everyone is there. Also, by promoting adult offers you can earn a lot of money as the payout is usually higher than for other type of offers.

    Thank you both for comments and support, I really appreciate you taking the time. This means a lot to me, especially when it comes from people that already does this and experiencing success.

    @tjtutor - Your comment really helped me to arrange my thoughts and action plan.

    I hope that I will be able to help other people in this forum and I'm sure that in time I will have much more to contribute.

    This is exactly what makes this community work! You can contribute from the very beginning as a Newbie. When Newbies share their experiences, progress, set backs, and successes, it offers everyone at every level new perspective. We all learn from everyone at every level.

    Post often, report your progress, and ask or help as often as necessary.
