In the previous part I began telling you my fantastic story of stumbling upon Affiliate Marketing.
I left you with a warning about those Affiliate Marketing Training products that hardly ever live up to their guarantees.
Now I want to continue my story…
So after spending all that money on those training products, I learned a few basic concepts of the Affiliate Marketing occupation.
(These concepts most likely could have been found for free on the Internet, but I had to find this out the hard way!)
After going through many of the training courses, those “gurus” had me stuck on some pretty advanced concepts. Most of the time, these advanced techniques are just a bunch of bull.
You can tell when product creators are getting pretty desperate when they are trying to complicate something as cut-and-dry as Affiliate Marketing.
As for me, I like to keep it simple.
One of the most basic yet effective concepts I came across is this…
In order to make money as an Affiliate Marketer you will need:
1. A website
2. A product to promote (your own product or an affiliate product)
4. Conversions (Turn the traffic into sales)
I really wish that someone could have just cut all the crap at the beginning of my training, and just let me in on this list.
This maybe a very basic business model, but it is the way that thousands of marketers make money on the Internet each day, from the little guys just starting out to the marketing giants.
After seeing that list you may be disheartened…
You may think of things such as…
I don’t know how to build a website.
I don’t know what type of products to promote.
How do I drive traffic?
Will driving traffic cost me money?
Won’t building a website cost me money?
How do I make the traffic that I send to my website convert to sales?
All these questions and more will be answered in the upcoming parts.
Please don’t allow this list to drive you away from being an Affiliate Marketer.
Just give me a chance to explain everything to you.
Believe me, if the thousands of Affiliate Marketers can make money online, then so can you!
In the upcoming parts I am going to break down the list that you were provided in this email, and let you in on all the “little” secrets I had to learn on the way.
