Just came across this site today. So far just browsing the threads.. a few of the thousands of questions swarming through my head have been answered! Look forward to learning and possibably helping others here in the future.
As the title suggests i'm a complete newbie! I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed here. I've read a few affiliate marketing books and have a pretty good grasp on the concept of affiliate marketing. However, I have no idea where to start my ventures! Say for example I wanted to strat an online chess store.. What would be my first step? Would I simply get a domain name, host service and then sign up with a merchant? Am I missing anything here?
I have no knowledge of html at the moment (just picked up a book from the library and have not yet opened it). Was looking into wordpress and godaddy because they seem to automate the process of designing and starting a site for you. Would that be a good solution for me?
I would like to join an affiliate program that provides a data feed. Would that affect which host I should go through? Could wordpress support a (dynamic) datafeed? Also could wordpress support videos if I decide to use them as a sales tool?
Thanks in advance for your answers!
