    Hi There!!

    I am new to affiliate and want to explore the opportunity seriously. Though i have good experience in other digital platform but affiliate is what i ever observed occasionally from a distance.

    I will start with a very limited budget so taking steps very cautiously. before i act on any campaign i am going through a lot of content to understand the domain and the way it functions.

    I appreciate if some experience people here may guide in this initial phase.

    I read this thread and observed that enough encouragement is there

    Looking forward to keep discussing the challenges and achievements.

    First of all, get your butt over to the Introductions Forum and let everyone know you're here. Tell everyone there about yourself and your goals here. You will begin to feel the warmth and commitment of the membership by doing this.

    Next, as you have read in @Nia 's introduction, I posted the following guidance (and have for most Newbies) because it is what works and you need to follow that advice without wavering. Everyone that has found success as a Newbie has done so by utilizing this guidance and many of as experienced marketers still use most of that advice every time we start a new project.

    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!

    Welcome @DigitalSearch! Sounds like I'm in the same boat as you, but I definitely don't have any digital platform experience as you do. Hope you find the threads throughout this forum as useful as I do! Good luck on your new journey :)

    HI @DigitalSearch in fact we all are in the same boat. You have taken the first step and now its time to move ahead. I wish to be your learning partner or colleague as I haven't mastered this money making magic yet. I believe, the budget which you have allocated for this mission is not ind of a classified information... so let me be very straight, how much money you have spared for entire quest?
