Just making my introduction in the forum. I'm wide-eyed newbie. Definitely wet behind the ears with blind enthusiasm which surely annoy some in the forum.
I didn't even know such a forum existed. what a place with tons of information and knowledgeable people.
I've been studying up on CPA affiliate marketing and there is so much to learn.
Building backlinks, press releases, social media/bookmarking, link wheels/funnels keyword research, site building, copywriting, PPC, CPA, CPC, EPA, good offers, bad offers, surveys, zipcode submitting, Landing Pages... Ai! if you opened up my brain right now, it'll look like a steaming bowl of Chow Mein noddles.
I considered buying a site from the forum.(I'm taking recommendations) It does seem like a way to skip ahead to the fun part (making money) as I need to see some income rather soon. But then again, I don't think I can really tell if a site is a good buy without knowing how to build a profitable affiliate site on my own. I guess when you're a newbie, it is always a catch-22 whether we're talking affiliate marketing or job hunting.
First goal is to build sites which generate 1000 to 1500 dollars a month in 60 days. Wildly optimistic I know. But optimism is the only fuel I have in abundance, so it will have to do. :p
I will appreciate any advice, know-hows, guidance, tips, kick in the pants, wake-up call, or tough love you have to offer.
Thank you and have a wonderful day!
