However I find the whole affiliate marketing rather confusing. While I have looked at some get rich schemes. I find that there are conflicting testimonials degenerating affiliate marketing. It seems centered on the fact that some complain that e-books while they give great advice on sales and strategy. None of the advice is on how to go step by step setting up a site ready to work. Its like If I were to give you instructions on how to buy building supplies and left you to figure out on your own how to build the house. Is it just the nature of affiliate marketing or is it just the uninformed person who just got starry eyed without doing the proper research? And if there is such a place for research, undoubtedly a forum such as this is of great value. I cannot make any value judgements for or against this business, as I have not stepped into the arena. I can only say that if one man is successful, then there is no reason why others can't.
