New to this and need help!

So I have dipped into this before in the past and now that I have some spare time I would like to give affiliate marketing another go,

I'm looking for some training videos on all the general concepts of how to make affiliate marketing profitable. The best ways about going about it and just some general training guides that go from beginner to intermediate and advanced. Trying to get my feet wet!

So any push in the right direction on where to start would be wonderful!


Thanks in advance everyone!

    If you want a really really high conversion, you should first build a buyers list.

    Basically what you can do is create a basic product and sell it for $1. From there you will create a buyers list who has trusted you by purchasing and they WILL buy again.

    Buyers list is the most powerful list there is. When you promote affiliate products to them, they will respond the most, as compared to other cold traffic.

    I suggest you pick up Lee Murray's From The Top. It's only $5 now. It will teach you step by step how to do this all...

    Hope that helps!

      You don't even have to sell the first product. Give it away in exchange for email addresses, people are much more likely to sign up for a newsletter and getting a product rather than paying for it, even if it's only $1.

      When there's a price people often need to whip out there wallets and it's often laziness that prevents people from purchasing a product. The thought going to your jacket and getting your wallet to buy something for $1 is a huge pain for many people.

      I've been there.

        You're right that people are reluctant to buy $1.

        But my aim is not some freebie seekers here. I'm suggesting a way so that one can build a buyers list without going through the freebie way. Also that really depends on the traffic source. You go via solo ads, you're going to have a tough time converting the list to money.

        You have a better chance doing so off free WSO or facebook ads, but still the level of trust is not as high....

        With buyers list, well that's the type of the list with the highest level of trust here. If you want a really2 long term and profitable business, eventually you'd have to build a buyers list anyway, so why not cut through the chase here?

        Would appreciate your comments as well!

    I am a fan of Andre Chaperon's teachings and their Tiny Little Businesses training is really good if starting out. (That is not an affiliate link)

    The downside to it is that the content is drip fed which is something I hate but it will definitely have you on the right track to success.

    The guy in the case study is actually a friend of mine and he was the person that told me to check it out following their training really got him out of a sticky spot

    Getting sales is not the hard part. What you want to focus on is working with the right affiliate programs.

    A program that pays you a one time commission is not where you want to get started. This is bad for you.

    You want to work with programs that pay you residual income and an income from upsells. So instead of just earning $20-$50 per sale one time, now you can earn $20-$50 per month from each customer and you can also earn from upsells which can bank you $400-$5000 commissions.

    Ok, I understand that creating a buyers list is VERY important the stronger my list and the more reputable I come with the people in that list turns into trust which means them purchasing products I review which will turn into money into my pocket.

    So when you say promote a free product and give it away is this product something I create on my own? Also, how do I go about creating DIFFERENT email lists that target certain people in a certain industries?

    Where my mind is at right now is I want to get a domain name which will simply be my name, then I want to create different sub pages promoting various different products in industries that I am familiar with and provide good content based on my own personal experiences so the content is actually real and from the heart. If you have a passion for what your promoting it always sounds better and more believable to the people your trying to get to purchase it.

    I am thinking of maybe creating some youtube video tutorials on specific topics to create a foundation of trust then promoting something from within the video and link back to my own site. Is this is a good idea?

    So how do I go about capturing people emails for a SPECIFIC MARKET so that I can set aweber up to promote certain products and send emails that are going to be something people are actually looking for! I don't want be sending an email to someone who has no interest in what I'm promoting. I want to touch various different industries and have profitable lists for each one of them.

    If you can go into a bit more detail with your previous replies that would be wonderful! Thank you so much for the help everyone!

    Also, are there any videos out there that focus on how to create a profitable list and how to go about gaining trust with the people in that list?
