I now realise that I just need to learn about IM and start off with something relatively simple that I can get my head around but be comfortable with. I've stopped making excuses and have decided to try affiliate marketing and article submission.
Here's my plan and a few questions if somebody would be so kind to answer.
I basically find a niche that is being highly searched but has low competition.
I then write quality articles that is related to my niche with a link to a product with my own domain on a landing page.
I then need to get backlinks. I've heard about social bookmarking and dofollow sites but I'm not sure how they work. Are they the same thing?
Also a lot of people suggest 2-3 quality articles a day. If I decide just to promote one product to start with does that mean I need to write 2-3 articles a day just on that one product?
People also talk about a resource box, what is it?
Last question. In my article I'll have a link to my affiliate product but using my domain name. Do I just link directly to the product with domain name forwarding or do I send them to a squiddo page or blog page and if so why?
Sorry for all the questions but this path seems to make the most sense to me and seems the cheapest option to get started with.
Any help would be deeply appreciated
