    No matter what you do it will take time or money. A blog takes time and the real money in blogs is advertising. Quick affiliate sales requires money with adwords, which is a risk. Squidoo and article submitting is just a grind that I don't recommend.

    the big numbers are the number of monthly searches
    pick one that is kinda in the middle..like 20k searches or so
    go to blogger or wordpress ....find out if that particular term is taken , if it is make a variation of it ...work,play, vacation , how to ski in ____, what to see in ______ my favorite places in _______
    use that for the name of your blog
    then go to google ...do a search for that term ...
    see the sponsored advertisements ...if there are none, get another subject..might be best to do this first ..
    click on the sponsored links
    see what they are sellling
    get an aff link to that product or service
    use your blog as the url for the aff product
    get approved ...may take a few days
    in the meantime ....copy the sales copy on those site into word or whatever you have
    modify the text to appear as an article
    post the article on ezines
    the article and the post can be real close to the same
    link to the aff product
    write articles ...maybe 25 -30 to start ...350 word minimum
    send em out
    send em out
    have your blog link in the signature at the bottom of your article
    sign up for several cpa programs
    put these relevant ads on your blog
    do that ...and that will keep you busy for a week or so
    then come back with your work to show us
    send 997 to somebody and hope you get something
    send me 9999.99 and I wil do it for you

    what a deal , huh?
    good luck

    Hey Kim,

    I was you a couple of weeks ago.

    What you need, I think, is direction. I'm trying a Bum Marketing program right now. I haven't started making money with it yet, but I am still starting out.

    The point is that I don't feel overwhelmed now like I did a couple of weeks ago. Look into methods, look for a course or program to follow, and work it through to completion.

    I'll follow your progress and you can follow mine!

    I believe that everyone feels the way you're feeling when first getting started. The difference between those that make it or not is simply moving on and moving forward. Be positive and do SOMETHING to better your situation. I believe that if you have your site/blog set up and autoresponder ready to capture names/email addresses, writing articles is a good way to drive some traffic there and you can do that for free.

    There are many things to do (as you know) but don't give up Kim. We all feel for ya because we were all there and there are probably many that are there right now! Keep your chin up and keep going. It will be worth it in the end!

    You don't know where to start because you have no plan. Start there. Set some goals, set a timeframe and then work backwards as to your daily tasks to achieve your big goals.

      What finally got me righted and to stop getting overwhelmed was coming to the realization that I should not have to spend any money to get started. Maybe I'll spring for advanced tools down the road, but there are so many 'get started' products, and most of them seem to contain at least a little bit of learning that's advanced to a complete beginner.

      I found a couple of different resources that got me going without have to put out cash. Look for those.
