    Hi there,

    Welcome to the forum.

    Let me answer your questions for you

    1-Honestly i'm starting at affiliate marketing to earn my living and my life will rely on that work ...so can i really make my living through affiliate marketing ??


    If you are asking if you can, you can. But is it going to be easy? No. Why? Well, marketing is not something that you can just imagine and see that it can work. You have to get to know your market, think as if you are in their shoes and market to them in such a way that they will be insane to not buy from your affiliate link.

    Think about it as if you are in their shoes. Would you buy from someone who is marketing the same product but is not the owner of the brand? No. But you will if that person gives you an insane bonus that you simply cannot pass on. I hope you can somehow see what I mean through this example.

    2-My first goal is to make at least one sale per day for product or products i promote .....is this really can happen ?? or it's difficult for newbie ??

    It can happen but instead of setting 'results' goals, set 'implementation' goals instead.

    So instead of making 1 sale per day or get 5000 traffic per day - which will disappoint you quicker if you are starting out. Set a goal of 'submit to 20 directories' or 'social share page 20 times' per day. As small as the effort is, it can still build up over time.

    3-I have seen many marketing types here like *social marketing *article and blogging marketing * video marketing *E-mail marketing *ppc and search engine marketing

    do i have to work at all of them or i just stick with one type and mastering it ??


    Work at one and master it. But still get to know what the other forms of marketing are. Just get the gist and test one until it is profitable. Once you master it, try the other ones. Later, you'll realize that some marketing methods are best suited for certain products and services and you can choose the marketing method to implement from there.

    Hope that helps.

      --i know it's not going to be easy but i really want to make all my best to achieve that .n your example maybe i will buy the offer if the person is trusted not for giving bouns or something like that ......that's how i want to be ....i want to be trusted for people first to sell them products easily

      2-My first goal is to make at least one sale per day for product or products i promote .....is this really can happen ?? or it's difficult for newbie ??

      that is my big goal NOT final goal in affiliate marketing i will cut that big into small pieces of mini goals to achieve over time i belive that i will reach my big goal

    1. Yeah, it's totally possible, but it's not something that's going to happen overnight.

    2. It's good to have goals, but the thing that you have to realize about making money online is that, how consistent your sales are, depends on having enough content out there to bring in money (takes time to create) and the products you choose to promote and things of the like.

    3. When it comes to traffic, there are a number of techniques you can use (free traffic from the search engines, e-mail marketing, social media, YT videos, and so on). These are usually used in combination with one another, but you don't have to use paid traffic if you don't want to. I never have and know plenty of others who haven't, either.

    Truth? Yes, it is not going to be easy but if you take it upon to spend just an hour or two a day consistently following a step by step plan. Building upon each day you will see just after a month that all that's left to do is driving traffic and optimization for conversion or higher sales.In other words the work will be much less.

    At some point in you business you will have to do all. But let that not discourage you. first things first get a step by step affiliate marketing plan and follow it strictly.You will find that it is not as much work if you really organize yourself. Hope that helps

    Yes people do earn a living through affiliate marketing, your odds of success though are small, but will increase if the amounts you need to live off are small relatively speaking.

    Depends on what kind of affiliate marketing you want to do? The cash back sites are probably the biggest affiliate marketers out there but also have the biggest barrier to entry in the affiliate field.

    Your odds of success will increase if you start looking at yourself as a one man band marketing agency, and not just some punk who's trying to game some dollars out of the Internet. Yes I would specialize in something, personally I would go with paid traffic as the supply is going to be steadier and you can fail cheaper and quicker that way and move onto the next thing.

    Yes, there is no doubt about it. But it is not possible at once. It may need some times to reach at that position.

    At the beginning time, it will not possible for anyone. But when you will be expert in this section, you will be able to do this.

    It is better to use many ways. Most of the people use multiple ways. It is better chance to sell your promoted products if you use many types marketing ways.

    Affiliate marketing is simple. Create the email list, but promote a product that allows you to earn recurring sales each and every month. If you're just getting sales by selling relatively low price 1-time products.... where's the equity in the customer there? It doesn't exist, because you won't get access to the customers name and info!
