    Do not expect to not lose money in this world of CPA marketing until you find "gold mine". Remember one thing: learn and test! ;)

    Hello ouss-sebti. Welcome to AffiliateFix Forum.

    Like you said information overloaded and it is worthless because you never put them into action.

    There is nothing like get rich overnight with a click of a button kind of scheme here. There is a saying in CPA industry : "In order to make money you need to spend money". First you spend money on your learning, make mistakes and learn from your own mistakes. Then you spend money on collecting data and learn how to optimize. Once you master optimization you can see profit. If you are too afraid to loose money at first then I am sorry to say but it's not the right job for you. Nobody is going to spoon-feed you with their golden nuggets, others can show you the path but its upto you and how you follow the path to find your own golden nuggets.

    Have a nice day :):affiliatefix:

    Hi, @MarcusLestrade and welcome!

    As the others have said, it is going to cost you some money to do this but it's actually an investment in learning and data collecting. Both of which, you need.

    Overwhelm can be greatly reduced by focusing on only ONE niche, ONE traffic source and ONE tracker at a time. Once you have either mastered those, or decided they aren't for you then and only then, move on to the next. Laser focus will help you greatly.

    Start by checking out the links that @tyoussef has shared with you, so you can understand the basics necessary for progressing.

    It's also a good idea to read:

    Anytime you have a question or need help, just start a thread to let us know.

    Enjoy the forums, Marcus! :)

    thank you very much for helping.
    I think CPA is the fastest way to make money, and by "make money" I mean results not get rich, because as i think, when you make a campaign, you can see results overnight (negative or positive results).

    absolutely true, but how much will i lose? (50$, 100$, 150$, 500$, 1000$, depends)?
    can you tell me about your first experience?

    thank you :)

    Again there is no specific answer to your question because it depend on lot of things. Your ability to grasp things (faster or slower), how quick you can identify profitable campaigns. All depends on you and it can 100$ , $200 or even more than $1000.

    Well I was hopping from one forum to another, joining courses and all of them taught me the basics but not what I was looking for. I never counted how much i spend that time as I considered it as a cost of learning and consultation fee. Then when I have joined Affiliatefix, I wasn't successful at my first attempt (Mobile offers) but did well on second attempt. I got all the help I can from this forum and by help I mean valuable tips and pointing me in the right direction. The advantage I had was my knowledge and little bit of practice I gained from my the courses and that helped to grasp things pretty easily and I kept going.

    Welcome to AffiliateFix @ouss-sebti !

    As you have an abundance of good guidance posted above, I'll add a little more.

    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!
