    Unrealistic expectations will let you down.


    There are dozens, if not hundreds, of threads about how to get started in affiliate marketing...how to automate sites, etc.

    It is doubtful you will get a full course provided in one forum thread...or that any product/service/place is a 'one stop' where you learn, do and farm out the work right away.

    Get started and learn as you go...that's the best way.

    2-5 year apprenticeship there...would you expect it to be different here?
    Affiliate marketing is a business and you have to learn it. There aren't any "paint by numbers" rules for success, and anyone who says so is lying to you.

    I'm just trying to figure out what needs to be automated with affiliate marketing sites. There is no order processing, fulfilment, payment processing or customer service of any kind. Are robots writing product reviews now?

    Hi, this is a good question because there are plenty of membership sites that offer you everything under one roof, but they're generally really expensive. In saying if you do your due diligence you'll uncover some hidden gems, in other words, a free membership that offers massive value to its patriots.

    Though, just a word of warning; there's no such thing as full automation even if you do have a VA. Yes, some automation is a good thing, like using an autoresponder, a sales funnel, etc; but it's going to be a lot better for you to learn how to use all the tools at your disposal yourself.

    Affiliate marketing is a business. Online, yes, but still a business.


    Business is serious stuff. If you believe the 10000000 scammy "All automated, all done for you, just add water" ads and pitches, you'll just do what we all did: waste time and money.


    There are good tools with a reasonable cost and even whole courses at a reasonable cost, but you still have to grind your way to success.


    There's no free meal, no shortcuts. Just months of effort to get started... and time = money.


    Now, go around and have a look to the 99999 trials and "free" videos etc. Get experience, get scammed and bummed like most of us did.


    When you are done with this carousel, you'll know what works (hard work and sweat for months) and what doesn't.


    Once you are done, if you are not fed up, please post here again and we can move forward

      Sometimes I'm wondering if it's even possible for a complete newbie who never heard of anything to avoid this 'carousel' haha


      I mean at the beginning all those sales pages and opportunities must sound incredible and you have no idea who to trust and believe and where to start haha


      Thank god I'm out of this nightmare and know the market...

    Personally I would learn from experience and not be looking for a course to tell you everything, this is not how real Entrepreneurs work. There is plenty of free info out there on how to get started in most things, both here and on YouTube but you can't beat experience, and you get experience from actually doing.

    Plenty of courses that have the info you need.

    Still need consistent action with a dash of focus minus a home run mentality.

    Steer clear of anything that uses words like: viral, push button, instant, loophole...etc.

    Pretty much 99% of Warrior plus stuff

    First I think you need to try and build a relationship with customers/clients.


    After you have achieved some success and are starting to make some money it would be time to start thinking about a VA.


    For example if you are getting a lot of traffic from Pinterest and it is converting into affiliate sales, then you could look for a Pinterest VA to save you time on Pinterest.


    Getting a Virtual Assistant too soon could be too costly and you might not recoup your outlay.


    Best Regards
    Ged

    I'm not sure if your looking for training, and a platform to do affiliate marketing on but I just joined Wealthy Affiliate.com The have all the training you could ask for. They have a 7 day trial then 45 a month for plus membership, I vouch for them. I just got into the training a few hours ago, but so far I'm impressed. They have an awesome community inhouse you can chat and follow other members. I would say this is what your looking for, hey its free and cheap for a full membership per month.
