What if you want to do affiliate but are not an expert in any field?

Yes, it is likelly that the majority of people that go into IM will actually be very knowledgeable in a field or couple of fields.

But if that is not the case then what do you do?
My first thought was to google up some info and package it up into a nice little Ebook and then try sell it to the masses. But being from a multimedia deign backgrond I know that many things out there that sound like the truth are in fact little lies. I suppose it will be the same story in most areas or niches.

So, what would you do if you wanted to market something you know nothing about?

    You know about design. Do you know the difference between web safe colors and other colors? (you probably do and you are saying "that's easy everyone knows that". )

    No they don't. There are a lot of things that we all take for granted because we know and we assume that if we know everyone else knows.

    But the truth is that you personally know things that I don't know and some of those things I might be willing to pay for.

    That is what you should be thinking about and researching right now.
    Once you can answer those questions you are in business.

    You don't have to discover the next great idea, or find that perfect niche that has millions of people waiting for you to find them and sell something to them.

    Our hardest job is figuring out our strengths and how to use them to make a living.

    Just start going to all of the forums and look at all of the questions people have about design and if you have the answer then create a product to answer their questions or find a product to be an affiliate for and recommend the product as someone who has your experience.

    I assume the guy running the corner store knows little to nothing about feminine hygiene products, but they still sell...

      These are the points I wanted to hear, I have had a few people come to me and say I don't know anything that is sellable (told em to watch the forum). Well I'm no expert but If people can sell shoe laces to those that don't need them then the possibilities are endless.

      Thank you for your replies.
