I'm completely new to affiliate marketing and have been researching it, and trying a few things online with pay-per-sale programs but haven't had any success.
I have seen people online saying different things such as: follow the trends for higher conversion(like health/fitness), sell niches you have a passion for instead of following trends, you must have a website/you don't need a website just use social media(while following their TOS and guidelines).
There seems to be many different strategies Affiliate Marketing, I am looking for one that would hopefully cost $0 out of pocket, and then once I get off the ground I can reinvest part of that into a plan that would lead to even more success.
One interesting thing I picked up is that beginners can make sales funnels for completely free using Mail Chimp + Google Sites.
Do you all have any advice on how I can make that first $1 to get myself off the ground (which would inspire me to give it my all.)
I am also interested in pay-per-lead and pay-per-click affiliate marketing, though I don't know if it's possible to make something much off of them(I would need to research this).
I would also be extremely grateful if there was someone who would help me one-on-one in general to get the first $1, but i don't expect anyone to do that here.
Thanks so much for whatever advice you can give and I hope to see you all more in this wonderful warriorforums.
