Hi all, I'm new to affiliate marketing. I've done lots of reading and research about it, and even gone through a couple of Udemy courses, and now I'm looking to join my first affiliate network. But, I've heard a lot of stories about how hard it is to be approved on the big networks without any experience, and have also heard horror stories about people being applying and being rejected.
My question is: As someone with a good amount of (purely theoretical) knowledge, and a lot of enthusiasm, but no experience, which ad networks should I start with? Which are the most likely to approve me? Is there anything I can tell them during the approval process that will help my chances?
