Ground Zero:Where to start?

by 16 comments
Hey everyone,

I've been reading the forums for quite sometime. I feel comfortable with a lot of the terms and have a decent understanding of some of the different processes people use, but my question is where is the absolute first place to start?

I was leaning towards affiliate marketing to get started, but are there any complete guides that layout exactly how to approach it and aren't a making money gimmick?

    This one's particularly good, and reliable, and the author (a Warrior herself) is "the real thing" (and not one of the people selling IM information just because they find it the easiest way to make any money from IM!): Affiliate marketing training for beginners

    You can do a search around but i know a warrior by the name of Mike cowles has a perfect start up tutorial for warriors called the thirty day challenge Im not sure if it has a cost but at the time I went through the material it was free but you can PM him and see.

    Actually, there are so many guides like ebooks and everything talking about how newbies should start but the topics are so various. The problem most newbies have that usually make them running in circle unconsciously is because of too many distractions.

    You need a mentor or a person you can consult with, to make sure that you're focused and you do it the right way. Newbies have the tendency to hop on one business to another every time they see "the next big thing". For example, in affiliate marketing (if you choose this one), you don't want to try promoting this, then it doesn't give me profit in a week, then you find something you think more promising so you hop on that new one. This circle would go on and on and on until one point you feel like there's no profitable business or I can't earn any commissions.

    The point is, have the correct mindset. Good luck!

    Hi,
    You have to pick something and stick with it. You can't bounce around from one thing to another.

    You will never get anywhere by doing that. There are several posts on my blog that deal with affiliate marketing. If you want info and would like to visit my blog. PM me.

    Good luck

    Step 1:

    Create a product. Really even if your going to be an affiliate that is a very good step 1.

    You need to start reading a lot but to avoid information overload, you could just read here at WF forum on affiliate marketing.

    Just get a sheet of paper and write down EVERYTHING you're interested and stuff that you've done.

    Then have a think about whether they would be good niches. Check to see if somebody's already started a forum about them for example.
