Brand new to the forums, and what an amazing read it's been so far. A lot of posts and the responses to them really inspired me to reach out to the community about my own concerns.
First, and probably quite most obviously, I am dying to get into Affiliate Marketing/CPA as a fresh college graduate currently working an extremely boring 9-5 job to pay the bills. For the past few weeks, I have been researching and trying to learn what I can about it, but have hit this mental wall that I feel is hindering me.
I feel incredibly inundated/overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information and complexities this seems to bring, and am afraid that I am not making sense of them and will simply be throwing money away with no clear direction if I just plunge right in.
I have previous experience working with PPC (specifically Adwords) through multiple internship positions, and all of the experiences created a passion for IM that I did not know existed.
I suppose the cause of most of my anxiety is the fact that, despite long hours of research, reading, videos, and so on, I am still INCREDIBLY unsure of where to even begin. Is it really as simple as finding an offer/service, making a landing page for the PPC ads, and diving right in with testing? It just sounds slightly haphazard and unsettling.
Any advice or ideas would be so welcome and appreciated,
