    If you are working on Amazon Affiliate, I think the best course is Affiliate Marketing Mastermind by Tung Tran (Could Living Guy).

    What platform are you using for your affiliate Marketing that you need help with to scale up?

  • A course is always the best option when trying to get a step by step process. However, you can make some money with a good product and free traffic with just the free info on YouTube. Once you make enough for the course, use the money you made to purchase it.

    I've been promoting affiliate / CPA offers for almost 18 years.

    However, I do thing a bit different than most.

    I heavily promote PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers. This is because there is no credit card / purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher compared to offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get or save money benefit to them, as they have overall worked the best. They also tend to have the greatest mass appeal (will be of interest to a large general audience), so the potential exists to produce high volume and they are fairly easy to cross promote on the back-end.

    Some of the verticals (niches) I have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, loans, debt, credit, mortgage, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    The bulk of the PPL offers that I promote pay $20-$40 per lead, but I also promote offers that pay more and less. You don't want to get too caught up on what an offer pays because how well it converts is just as important. For example, if you have an offer that pays $9, but if it converts at 2X or more of a $20 offer, then it will perform about the same or possibly better. At the same time, if you have an offer that pays $90 and it converts poorly, it may not even be worth promoting.

    I have also done just as good with dating website sign-ups and pretty good with free trial + S/H offers. I also promote a very limited number of offers that are straight sales. For them, mass appeal is still the number one thing I look for and I also look for one of the following...

    1) The product is new and/or novel-unique and you can't purchase it locally or even something similar. I don't waste my time with it once something similar shows up in Walmart.

    2) The buyer can truly get what is being offered at a decent discount.

    3) Solves a house is on fire type problem.

    However, I mainly promote non-PPL offers on the backend.

    Bottom line, it's far easier to get someone fill out a short form than to get them to pull out their credit card and make a purchase. So why struggle with trying to sell this or that, when you can provide free information that users want/need and get paid well doing it.

    Something to think about.

    What exactly is your strategy? How are you planning on driving traffic and monetizing it? Everything will be based on this.

    Affiliate marketing is certainly a worthwhile endeavor that can be quite challenging to master. It is made up of several skill sets that can take time to master. Although it is certainly easier and quicker to gain the needed expertise with paid courses, with time (that being the currency) it can be learned. Look at well-respected trainers on YouTube and in Facebook groups and get to work taking action on the techniques that are shared.

    You can get millions of dollars worth of training for free from YouTube. You just need to choose a path and follow the right people. Choose ONE person to model and watch everything they have done and does from now on. Copy them.

    Hi I understand your pain. To be honest if you have no money and you want to make money fast. Sorry to let you know. that Affiliate marketing is not the business for you. But if you want to work at affiliate marketing and build a facebook page FREE then engage with people giving advise not selling. just giving advise. answering questions on other people facebook pages. Then when you have established a trust you can then advise the people to purchase a product that has helped you. Because remember it is affiliate marketing and not affiliate selling. If you market and find people that have a problem then find the answer to that problem put it in front of the people you will become a good affiliate marketer. Message me I will send you my free understanding affiliate marketing course Hope it helps. But again affiliate marketing is not a get rich quick business. Thanks for the question

    I believe selling affiliate product is one of the proven ways to make a recurring income online.

    Selecting the right type of product is the key to a successful affiliateship.

    This is how I do it. I will do some research to find an affiliate product which has been selling well online.

    I came across a high ticket product online which is promoted by many other successful marketers. I looked for high ticket items because it is the most profitable in the long run.

    It is important that the product has a built-in funnel which promotes several cheap products, with low entry levels.

    Well. I'm going to be honest with you. If you want to shortcut your success you need to leverage the experiences others have gained throughout the years.

    What I mean by that is, taking courses.

    If you do not have money to invest, you better have time.

    Time to invest in yourself and learn money making skills. You can find a lot of information on Youtube.

    So that is what I recommend you to do. Head over to Youtube and learn as much as possible. But in order to become really successful, you need to implement and execute directly, because no action will lead to no results.

    So for now, watch Youtube videos and read blog posts to learn the basics and once you've enough money, invest in tools and courses to speed up the process.

    Hope it helped.

      Agreed. Too many people want shortcuts and resort to things like black hat and other short term strategies that either don't work or dry up fast.

      The only want to fast track your success is to learn from others who have had success IMO. This is exactly why athletes hire coaches.

    Affiliate marketing is not about money at all. It is about trust. Build a trust and money will come. I have been doing this now for 6 years and found it hard to understand. But it is easy when you understand. So you need a website. No Problem use facbook as your website 80% of my sales are via facebook. Build a page related to the niche you are going into. If that niche has a high selling product name it after the product. Now we get to the building of the facebook page. Put in 15 posts related to what you will be selling. You notice I said what you will be selling because you are not ready to sell. You have to bring people to your page via good content advise or better still video. Then you join other pages you post content to the other pages No selling. In return people will come to your facebook page and you will engage with them. Then you advise that. this product helped you then you put the link. So now you have a couple of people on your page. you ask others to join your page as a friend. Build your page out. and then you will be selling in no time. BUT. Give advise and not selling. Hope it helps

    I understand you have no money to invest. No problem. No money needed. Have a passion in what you are doing. Find a product you like and enjoy then find people that need that product. So what I am saying look for people that have a problem and put the answer to that problem in front of the people. Thats as simple as that. I do this with 3 programs and it works for me. No websites No list just finding people that need my products Hope it helps

    You don't need a course to get started with affiliate marketing. This forum has a lot of tutorials that are geared towards affiliate marketing as a whole, which should be more than enough to get the ball rolling. Try to stick to one traffic source and niche to start with and don't get discouraged.

    Hi,

    Affiliate marketing allows people to sell a variety of products online through their blogs or website. If you are looking for an easy way to monetize your website, you can easily implement affiliate marketing into your site.

    The basic concept is signing up for an affiliate marketing network and finding products that are within your niche. Once you find the product that is within your niche, you click on the hoplink to add your affiliate ID to the product link. When a reader clicks on your hoplink and buys the item, you get a commission for the sale.
    Thanks....

    Before you find a product to promote. you have thousands to pick from. You need to find out how you are going to promote the product. You need to first have a facebook page on what you want to sell that is the main niche ie affiliate marketing. or diet. what ever. Then put out 15 posts and make the page look professional. The start to friend people in the same niche. when you have. 600 or so then. start giving out a bonus and without links advise your friends what you have. . earn send them the link via messaging. system. works if you have the correct product.

      Honestly - no! I think I can safely presume that. You don't even know what you want to do and why would you think that others who are trying to make a living themselves are going to help you build an online business, from scratch?

      Additionally, don't hijack someone else's thread to insert your plea for assistance. Start your own thread. Learning a little forum nettiquite will help you in your online experience.
