I have read so much about how people make so much money with Affiliate marketing, but there have been so many things thrown at me I feel confused and excited and frustrated at the same time, is there anyplace or anyone I can be directed too, if I can start for free great because we just moved in to a new place and I literally have less then 30 bucks in the bank right now, I just want to learn,

I have even heard that there are places on the internet were I can make 50 to 100 bucks online right away to a My PayPal acct. or by check instantly but were? that would come in handy right now,

May I please ask for some expert advice or any advice that is better then what I know now.

I appreciate any help.
Thank you

  • If you need cash very soon, I would just concentrate on landing more work until you get going with an online venture.

    One of the fastest ways to make money online though is by doing freelance work. Check out Freelancer.com, and Odesk. There are other similar sites too. It's not big money, and generally takes more time than earning at a job, but it will give you some experience.

    Once you get confident after making some money on the web that way, you'll be more prepared to start doing some of the longer term things like affiliate marketing or creating your own products which can get you more money on a continual basis.

    Hey, Louie. When it comes to making money online, there are several legitimate routes you can take, but regardless of the method you choose, you're still going to have to invest in some training to learn what you need to know in order to get things going. I recommend you save more money.

    The quickest way to make money online (and get paid) is to become some kind of service provider -- like someone has already mentioned. The reason for this is because you're able to get paid via Paypal. The most common way to do this is as a ghostwriter, where you do research and write content for other marketers.

    Once you build up a reputation, you'll be able to get paid up front -- in whole or part -- to ensure that you can pay your bills. Once you get that going, you should start doing something that generates residual income like blogging, a membership site, or having a PLR store. Once the passive stuff starts to pick up, you can do less service providing.

    Good luck,
    Joey

    Hi Louie,

    Great advice already! I'm a full time affiliate marketer, and I've been doing some form of affiliate marketing for over 16 years now (starting in my offline biz in the 90's, way before it was even called that lol).

    It takes time to get things set up and do well as an affiliate, but it's a great model!

    I have an "open discussion" on the model, how it works, and it includes a good Brainstorming Exercise at the end: clicknewz.com/7605 (I didn't want to drop a live link here, but copy & paste that into your address bar to see it). Start there, and let me know if you have any questions. I'll subscribe to this thread - happy to help any way I can.

    You can try out writing jobs as a freelancer on iwriiter.com, freelancer.com and odesk. Besides writing there are many other little jobs You can earn some cash right away if you take action.

    Affiliate marketing has some learning curve, so you can earn some money and in the mean time you can browse or search posts in this forum and learn more about how to do affiliate marketing.

    Good Luck

    As with any business venture affiliate marketing can be a great way to make money. There are a few techniques that I know that can make some pretty good cash. However, you probably wouldn't get the same results that I do.

    My suggestion is take a few days off from reading and watching video's about marketing. Make a plan, then write on a sheet of paper (both sides) your interest, hobbies, what you did as a kid that made you a little bit of money etc.

    Then go to clickbank and find products in those interests. bookmark them.

    Open notepad and think of any keywords for all of them. Then do your research for each product. Spend an hour or two finding keywords. then analyse which niche is spending money.

    Pick one that will hold your interest. Then set up a squeeze page, autoresponder series, make a sign up bonus for subscribers, then promote like crazy.

    Rinse and repeat.

    For quick cash get on fiverr, iwriter, warrior for hire, odesk, and even projectpayday.com

    what makes affiliate programs pay out is having a list of people such as IM / MMO who are already interested in that stuff and market it to them. Starting off from scratch is going to be difficult to build without the money to invest. You can however start a blog, backpage.com, craigslist, safe list, and hit exchanges are all free but with slow and small results.

    my only advice is get a piece of paper, write your idea, break it into points and start doing them ... at the end, put them in order and start building your idea ... in this way, you will proceed step by step and also give emphasize to each point

    There are some ways of making cash quickly, but the key is consistency. I'd rather make $50 everyday for a year than a quick $500 today.

    What have you had success with so far?

    I would also recommend doing some online freelance work, as getting an internet marketing business going properly will almost certainly take longer than most people initially think.

    It can be tricky to get the first job on those freelance sites due to a lot of competition so I would advise to lower your rates in the beginning. Once you have some positive feedback, you're much more likely to get other jobs.
