10 replies
Hey warriors,

Who was your mentor when you were learning to make money online??

I am still relatively new to Online jobs and have decided to focus on CPA and Affiliate marketing.
I am already a member of a CPA network and have been testing out a few different different on different advertising platforms! I currently have a negative ROI on my campaigns and am losing money constantly!

How did you guys find the right knowledge that set you to making profits? I am almost fed up with so many products and tools I but since I am clearly doing something wrong at a basic level!

Who helped you guys out??? And how can i find someone who can mentor me up to a certain level? I am ok even splitting half my profits of the whole first year. But I really do want to have one person who can tell me what I do wrong and set me on the right path with affiliate and CPA marketing.

  • Honestly, it's all about trial and error and seeing what works for you. I started in freelance writing, and while iw a am making money there, I was experimenting with things like affiliate marketing and offline marketing, and it always tried to make sure that I was making money while I was learning.

    So in the end, try to make sure you have a stable consistent income coming in before you decide to do anything huge with your online business.

    I won't say who I bought products from or who coached me or anything, but you don't need a coach. You just need to push yourself, continue learning, and to realize that you'll learn more from trial and error than anything else.

      This is very true. You have got to test all sorts of things to see what works best for you.

      This is true with ads online. You should always test different places to see where you get the best results. Then when you know what works, you can scale up your efforts.

    I'm completely self taught, but I have learned a lot of tips and tricks from WSOs. I've been marketing online since 1999, even before that I had little projects.

  • Trial and error for me. I followed a different person for each aspect of what I was wanting to learn. Took all the best practices and molded them into what worked for me.

    The worst thing you can do is start out with PPC. It's not for beginners. I'd recommend looking into far easier models. Just to get your earnings up to a decent figure. Then plow back some of those profits into learning PPC.

    I had a few guys I followed but never got personal mentoring. I always called it silent mentors.
    Eric Louivere, Matt Bacak, Kelly Felix were a few

    Its really hard without a mentor and I agree with you. But today whatever I learned is because of trial and error. I could not even refer 1 person back in the day but today I have grown myself to a better level. Recently I earned a commission of $1500 is 8 days. The commission amount is $50 per sale.

    Some tips that I can give you (people may not agree with me but it has worked for me every time)

    1. choose a service that give better support and service to their customer

    2. Make sure you use the same product. For example: I promote A small orange and I use their service as well because they are worth it. Its all about building trust. If you say that.. xyz product is awesome, people won't believe you but when you add I use the same then there is some hope

    3. Don't run after the highest paying affiliate.

    We are all going to fail along the way, nothing comes easy. It's best to learn from somebody that has experience and is able to show you step by step what to do. Learning from someone who is experienced can help you avoid many pitfalls, however the true teaching comes from taking action and learning from your own experience!
