Best Places to Learn Everything About Affiliate Marketing

by pcdoctor 45 replies
Hey everyone:

I know that there are a lot of places that claim that they will teach affiliate marketing, but only a handful of those being legitimate and teaching the stuff that works today. I would like to know what you have had good luck with so far. I found a product by Corbett Barr who teaches affiliate marketing for beginners which I may purchase, but it all depends on what others have to say about it.

As for me, I am a member at Niche Profit Classroom which is a membership site where you pay a monthly fee and I like what they teach, but they don't teach the wordpress way of things, but rather they have a site builder where you build a site.

I'm beginning to think though that most people who build affiliate sites, adsense sites, etc... use the wordpress model. What do you think on this?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

    Wordpress is not a "model": it's simply a content management system for creating blogs and/or websites.

    Whatever sort of business model you adopt for affiliate marketing, the precise type of software you happen to use, to build your site, is hardly likely - to put it mildly - to be a major contributory factor to your overall success or failure.

      I know that now a days, content is a big key to google and if pages are lacking in quality content, most likely they will get delisted or may never make the top page.

      • Matt Carter is a great teacher of "Affiliate Marketing", I love his latest 2 products.

        SEO Experts Academy which will teach you the wordpress way of things to answer your question.

          I am on Matt Carter's mailing list too and recently I watched (although didn't finish it yet) a webinar that talks about internet marketing today. I would share it, but of course, members would get a bit greedy with me putting a link in here. You can PM me if you want the webinar link.

    Don't purchase anything man.

    There are plenty of sites to teach that for free

    I am learning the free ways first to see if they are still valuable or not. I will check out Affilorama and see how it is. In regards to coaching, that I know isn't free and that's where a site such as Niche Profit Classroom comes in handy for me.

      The best place to learn is on the job. Just make a start, today, do something, make a few mistakes and learn as you go.

      You really don't need to know everything up front and as one of the other posters said there are plenty of free resources online which will help you out.

        I totally agree with you.You can learn anything when you do it in real time.There is no ABC of affiliate marketing and no book/course can teach you how to do it perfectly .Once you start it ,you will learn many things automatically .

    One of the problems is sorting out the people who want to sell to you, and the people who have lots of quality information on affiliate marketing for free (kind of rare isn't it?)

    I find it annoying whenever I wanted to learn, and they need my email address first.

    Websites like this are good to learn, but a lot of people would bother participating if self promotion wasn't possible.

    Hey. Wordpress has pretty much become the standard for affiliate marketers. In terms of training, I recommend you check out Unstoppable Affiliate by Andrew Hansen and Josh Stanton. It's all about making money with affiliate marketing on Wordpress and beyond. The main course is all you need to get it to work, but if you're a complete newbie, you might also benefit from the coaching they offer on the backend.

    Good luck,
    Joey

    It is lucky to you you have a speciall course to do affilate. you can learn how to use wordpress in offline, get a short course and you will be right. or you study alone from book as I do before, it is easy to use wordpress.
    If you do not like the daily wordpress theme, you would better to get premium theme . you pay a litttle bit , starting from US $ 39 up. you can choose the premium theme wordpress, it is simple and the best

    If you are not afraid of hard work and can commit yourself, from personal experience I would say the best place for you to learn affiliate marketing is right on this forum.

    I started a few years ago without knowing anything about this stuff and now I am making more than a full time income from my site. Yes, I dont use affiliate marketing as the only way to make money with the site, but if you believe CPA is a form of affiliate marketing, then most of my earning comes from CPA offers on my site.

    And I learned every little thing, from installing wordpress and plugins to artcile marketing, link building, list building and all the rest, with the help of great people on this forum without having to spending a dime buying an ebook or paying for a mentor.

    Believe me, this forum has got all kinds of experts and most of them are more than willing to answer your questions and teach you things that you wouldn't even get from paid mentors.

    Ask away and do apply what you learn as that is the only way you are going to make money, TAKING ACTION!

    Good luck.

    There's this ebook called "Affiliate Payday" that shows you how to make money with residual income affiliate programs... basically affiliate programs where you get a recurring commission each and every month without doing a thing. (For example web hosting affiliate programs). If you want to check it out, pm me and i'll email it to you.

    niche profit classroom may be good, but i learnt most my tricks for a big affiliate marketer here in oz.

    Plus coming to the war room and Warrior forum and learning and applying. Seriously, if you kept coming here each day and spent 20 mins reading the stuff on affiliate marketing you would be a guru or i would say a semi guru in no time.

    The stuff in here is priceless and this place is like the matrix of marketers minds. Kicks ass too.

      this is something that i've been looking into very seriously as well. and for me personally i think its tough to find out everything for free. there are too many bits and pieces that you need figure out on your own for the big picture.

      i recommend tiny little businesses that is not my affiliate link. i just highly recommend andre cuz his stuff kicks @ss. be ready to put in the work though. cuz there's no other way to get good at this stuff. just like anything in the real world really. u want it bad. put in the work!

    Since you don't have a clue what to do or what you really want to do to make money online, I would spend $37 to join the War Room and forget about courses until you have a firmer plan in mind. There's a ton of valuable information in the War Room that could save you a lot of money on courses and WSOs if you go there first.

    I agree that the best way to learn is to try. But, Affiliate Marketing can be very tricky. I would recommend getting some coaching because the main thing you need is targeted "traffic". Why? Because (Targeted Traffic + High Conversions = $$$$$) It could be Affiliate Products or Your Own. If you can Master this formula, you can write your own ticket.

      Wealthy Affiliate has some good information, but there is a lot of stuff in their membership site, so it can be a bit overwhelming. And it's kind of expensive to be a member. I was only a member for a few months, but I learned a lot. I've learned even MORE in the War Room here, though, and it's a one-time investment for less than one month at Wealthy Affiliate, so I definitely recommend the War Room.

        I second the Wealthy Affiliate option. While I was only a free member for a short period of time, I greatly valued their community. You can get answers from people willing to help you in a heartbeat and there's lots of encouragement there. The downside, yeah, it's pricey but for 2 or 3 months it may be worth it to you. I think it's a great way to get going for a newbie.

    Sign up to a proven Franchise System. When I started in IM i knew the principles but nothing about the implementation. What I found was a system where all the technical stuff is set up for you and all you have to concentrate on is the marketing. For me it's been brilliant and I've learned an enormous amount about IM since starting!

      I never did sign up for Corbett Barr's Affiliate Marketing for Beginner's course, but instead, I purchased Rapid Profit Formula and while I haven't taken any action yet on the material that Matt Carter teaches in it, from the videos that I've watched, he goes into great detail about keyword and niche research as well as great detail about SEO. I would recommend that you purchase his course. It's a one time charge of $77.
