Some tips for a beginner

22 replies
Hi, I'm new on this forum but I have already red a lot about affiliate marketing and several ways to make money online. I want to create my own business online, but I already have a job; this means very few times. I would have some advice from this community. I'm going to explain how I would like to build my business and please tell me what you think about.
A. YouTube channel plus ClickBank, Amazon and so on...
I opened a YouTube channel and I created an animated video to test functionality and to study statistics. I have several questions...
1. Opening a YouTube channel is easy, getting authentic traffic on, not the same. I know that that I could pay to obtain subscribers and views, but will this kind of traffic be customers? In other words, in this case, will my conversion's rate be high or not?
2. What kind of niche should I to consider? I mean, is it better to follow own passions and speak about something that I love, even if the considered niche market is a small subset? Or do you think that a big niche (like health or wealth niche), even if it is very competitive, is the right choice?
3. Are animated videos a good solution to convert views into customers? In this case, which software is the best solution in term of price-performance ratio?
4. I should start to promote some product only after obtaining a sufficient number of subscribers; is it correct this statement?

B. Cryptocurrency. Are there real and faster ways to get money with cryptocurrencies?

C. Promote app (CPI campaigns) buying traffic from DSP networks. Is it possible to make money with no experience? Is there a detailed guide to help me in this world?

Thank you very much

    Hi ClaudioEvans,

    First of all, congrats on being brave and looking to expand yourself beyond your job!

    That alone already puts you in front of most of the people out there!

    To start your business and especially if you have not too much time in the beginning, I would recommend you to decide and focus only on one specific field:

    It can be Youtube, Cryptocurrency or whatever, but decide only one of it and forget all the rest.

    Once you have decided, spend some time to learn as much as you can about that field. At this point, I suggest you do some research and enrol in a course in which you can improve your knowledge in that field faster.

    And then take action and start your business. Best way to learn is doing. Don't wait to start until you know it all. Allways remember: Done is better than perfect!

    About the niche, I highly recommend starting with a niche you are passionate about. And if it's not very competitive, even better at the beginning. Start their and become the best in that niche and from there you always can move on in the future!

    Well, ClaudioEvans, I hope that helps and I wish you all the best!

      Thank you. If I have to focus only on one specific field, I will choose YouTube. Do you know some course to enrol?

        Claudio you don't need to enroll in any course at all!

        Just do what you KNOW. Something you can teach. Do 1 videoa day and just post them. Just post.

        post post post. (It's something i should do, and i don't, don't be like me...POST!)

        Also, please don't buy likes, shares, subscribers and views. It's not great at all.

        Cheers

    Hi Claudio,

    I see you are interested in affiliate marketing, and I think it's a good choice for you if you are just starting out. In my view, it's better for you to first do your research, understand more about the current offers in the marketplace and their respective payout. Try to google if they are legit business opportunities by [opportunities] + review. I saw you also mentioned about Crypto-currency, which is a different niche than affiliate marketing. All in all, do your research, and understand the landscape, and see which one fits you best. Focus on one product before going to another.

    All the best,

    Roy

    I mean, is it better to follow own passions and speak about something that I love.....

    Boom. This is your starting point Claudio. Push all else to the side. Focus heavily on following your passion, your fun. Then, that passion and market expands if you tie your passion into solving some pressing problem.

    From there, creating helpful videos on YouTube and befriending other folks in your niche by helping them and looking for nothing in return is the foundation to building a thriving online business.

    Focus on these steps. The product questions and animated video deals are not important at the moment. Keep creating, connecting and having fun. This is the starting point to succeeding online.

      So, if I will choose YouTube I would create videos talking about my passions and, in the first place, just to have subscribers and views. Afterwards I will start to sell something.
      Is it correct?

    Hey ClaudioEvan

    I recommend finding the niche you are looking to do youtube videos about first. Look into exactly what problem you want to help people solve.

    Answer those questions and ask for people to ask you more questions. That way you can start to build a following.

    But yes, you will sell something later. First, help people in your favorite niche.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Claudio, congrats on deciding to start your own business. Also, the Warrior Forum is the right place to learn about starting an online business and get support.
    Going with your passion can be a good thing to do when starting business as long as you've done your due diligence to find out if your passion is shared by other people and if you can contribute something that other people will need or want. Find out if the subset of the niche you're talking about is big enough to support your business.
    Are people searching for what your passionate about, are they buying books, watching videos, are there forums, are there Facebook groups about this topic?
    Even if you go with a bigger niche like health or wealth as you mention it's still a good idea to find sub-niches to market to so that you have a clear message to communicate to people instead of bouncing around from one thing to another.
    Keep asking questions, researching, and testing, you'll figure out what to do.


    Enjoy your outcome!

    I'm sure that if you like what you are doing, then you definitely will succeed. Focus on the goal and go to it.

    Definitely go with something you're passionate about.


    Also don't be afraid to target a really micro-micro niche. I started a forum this year but it's just too broadly based. In time it might do well in all its areas. But for now one sub-forum is killing it. I should have made its topic the main one for my entire forum.

    You mentioned affiliate marketing as a way to make money online. This is very doable even over the long-term. Provided you get the right guidance. Your job leaves you with little time to start your online business which is something many people face. My suggestion would be start small and slow and scale up your online business at your own pace while holding on to your full-time job. There is a way that you can do so as the first step. Check this out. I'm certain it will help.

    Go with your passion do research on the topic learns the basic, it will take some time it's a consistent work. Plan for long-term and start taking action according to that. Learn everything one by one with the help of an expert, it will save your time and effort and even money also. Spend some time to choose the expert some people selling but no value of that.
    Fix hours on a daily basis that will take you to the success.

    I would go for option A, I'm personally more interesting in affiliate marketing than the others. There are also other ways to do this than youtube, I would explore the options more,.

    The sweet spot is finding a niche that you enjoy or know something about BUT also has a buying market.

    Once you've decide on a niche you can do affiliate marketing, Youtube videos, Facebooks ads, or whatever to promote and bring potential buyers to you. It's best to start with one and learn it and then try adding others.

    Study everything you can about one business method. Use the search function of this forum. Watch videos, read blogs, and maybe buy some paid products. They can save you a lot of time in the long run.

    Then come back and ask specific questions and we'll be able to help you more.

  • Start with option A.

    You need to have a combination of both helpful videos and sales/review videos.

    If you can provide great helpful information with a sales pitch at the end than do that but only if your free info is something your subs can apply and use.

    if I will choose YouTube I would create videos talking about my passions
    If the goal is to make money then you should start with an actual plan. Like a target market, if there is traffic to be had, can it be monetized?

    The Internet is littered with abandoned blogs and YT channels based on "passions."

    to start for any such project you need a goal. after its definition, I think you should think carefully about the content - today it plays an important role in this matter. and then you just need to go to the intended goal.
