    Hey guys and gals

    Micky here, from South Asia. Wanna learn how to do aff marketing using paid traffic.

    Have just dumped $50+ with content.ad and got no conversion; just a sudden rush of traffic, lol.

    Will be checking out the beginners section, success stories and follow-alongs :)

    Catch you later!

    Hello @micky , welcome to AffiliateFix! Thanks for joining us.

    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!

    TJ, thanks for the detailed guide.

    I'm new to paid traffic, but have made websites and done SEO before :)

    Have already signed up for AdsBridge, so that's one item checked off the list. Already have accounts with ClickBank, Market Health, CJ, JVZoo... but not sure if any of these are good for performance marketing.

    But know nuts about paid ads, since there are quite a few moving parts: ad copy / creative itself, lander, offer... and of course the important traffic source :)

    I read elsewhere that perhaps the best way to start is to replicate a successful campaign. The catch I guess is where to find it. Maybe as I look through AffiliateFix forum, the picture might get clearer.

    Anyhow, right now I have this thought: when I get my first campaign making ok moolah, I want to use it as an example to show other noobs how to get started... and hopefully see profits sooner. While I may not have the same benefit starting from where I am, I believe such kind of sharing can reduce heartaches and frustration for other wannabes. Yea, sounds kinda altruistic, LOL

    Back to reading the follow-alongs... Thanks again for setting me on the right track, man!

    Hi Micky!
    Nice to meet you on the board.
    Being from South East Asia gives you many benifits as you understand cultural and language background. Besides SEA market is growing extremely fast.
