There is alot of info overload for new warriors in here. So when I first started, I use to spend all day reading the forum, and not taking any action. That is the worse thing you can do!!!
What you should be doing is reading in here 1 hours a day, as a newbie, and spending the rest of you day TAKING ACTION!. As they say ACTION BREEDS RESULTS!
and....nothing can be more further than the truth there!
Though learning the tech stuff does become easier with time and it is good to know. It really depends on what you're trying to accomplish, but here's my advise...
Pick a VERY LUCRATIVE market in one of the big 3
Our favorite is weight loss, and Relationship. Because....well...who does not want to look HOT, or have a better relationship. These are killer niches, and lucrative no matter how competitive you think they are. You need to jump infront of the bigger piece of pie and make some $$$
Start a blog and write in first person tha you are wanting to do X in an [X] amount of days, and get people to follow you....
Next, pick one method that you think will help you get closer to that main goal and then when you find something that works, turn around and help people for free, or give them advice to follow. Nothing like doing this, helping is very very good, fun and know you are changing peoples life in the process.
Drive traffic - This can be via YOUTUBE, Vlog, bloghopping, articles, twitter, social media, forums, solo ads, etc. to some of your content that has an OPT IN form underneath.
Once you have lots of articles, content, and your visible online you will slowly become an authority. You can syndicate your articles to get better exposure. And you're now in a position to repackage all you have into VIDEO, PDFS, SEMINARS...etc, and sell from ranges of $7 , $17, $97 all way up to $4,997 and more if you want.
Of course there are other inbetween stuff, but there is nothing stopping you doing the following and building a $4,000 a month business very fast. The secret is, working harder and smarter, and not staying in here all day reading forums.
Hope this helps.
