    Hi @Mithras , great to have you here. Thanks for joining us.

    Everyone has to start somewhere. Be active, ask loads of questions, take action, and be committed. That's how it gets done!

    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.

    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!

    Hi @Mithras and welcome to AFix!

    For some reason, when I read your intro, I hear it in an Australian accent in my head. :D

    Hope we can help you clear some of the CPA fog. If you ever have questions (and you will), don't hesitate to start a thread and ask. Someone will help you.

    Thanks for the welcome:)

    Thanks Marc:), Yep I think that/those threads were my first port of call after I signed up

    Thanks tyoussef

    Thank you servandosilva:)

    Thanks T J, very happy to be here:)

    Lol Thank you for the welcome azgold, are you Australian?
    surprisingly though, I've been told that my accent doesn't resemble that of a typical aussie lol, Majority of the people I work with, thought I was from N.Z when I first began.

    Thank you CPA.Stdnt:)

    No, I'm Canadian, eh? :)

    And no, I do not say, "aboot" for "about", despite what some may tell you. :D

    And they're Aussies, too?

    No matter, either accent is very nice.

    Nice. The other day, I was actually thinking of places I'd like to travel to overseas if the opportunity ever arose and Canada was on the list, Montreal more specifically:)
    Thanks Ben:), this forum definitely has the warmest "welcome" I've seen and it's awesome, makes people want to interact more and get to know everyone:). Some forums I've joined before were very lifeless in a word.

    Thanks allitap. Yes there is a boat load on info here, will do my best to learn and apply, rather than just researching and not make a move.

    Old Quebec City is worth seeing too, as I understand it. (have never been, have only seen pictures)

    If you're going to be here a while, I'd also suggest seeing BC, northern Ontario, and the east coast. All very beautiful places.

    Welcome @Mithras nearly didnt get to welcome you! However, definitely didnt need to, you got the whole of the Fixer gang onboard already... Not only advice in CPA marketing, but also on world travel... Goodness man, you´ve been "Fixed" xD

    From my side I can help with the "seeing through the fog" for CPA marketing in mobile ( Kimia is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in mobile :) ) So just let me know through a PM or on our thread: Official - Kimia | Affiliate Marketing Forum | AffiliateFix

    AND! I can add to world travels ... España! (Spain) ... or if your thinking of Europe, be sure to let me know, lots to do, many places to see, lots to drink/eat... mainly the latter ;P
