You can learn affiliate marketing step by step just by doing one thing at a time. One of the main problems with learning affiliate marketing is overwhelm. There is such a huge variety of information available on the internet than many would-be affiliate marketers simply give up. This is a shame because affiliate marketing offers such a great opportunity for flexibility and freedom which would not be available in many other jobs or opportunities. But it does take a certain amount of patience, tenacity and strong will to learn and keep going.
One of the mistakes I made is to think that there is some magic bullet or quick button press opportunity to online success. There are many selling this idea and it could be easy to think that your hard work is futile when you see another ‘shiny’ object offering riches at the push of a button. Start learning the process one thing at a time and don’t allow yourself to become distracted. There will be many telling your different things but choose a good mentor to teach you and stick with them.
Affiliate marketing is simply a means to sell other people’s products online through your own website or blog. You can also sell through advertising either online or offline but generally it is done online through the internet. Start with your own blog or website. Post regular articles or blogs and find an affiliate program you can use which goes with your blog or interest – see best affiliate programs for blogs.
There is a lot to learn and you will spend a long time learning. Don’t confuse learning with doing. Learning how to create websites, blogs, post content and create links are all useful steps towards long term success. Doing this is not success in itself. Don’t learn the unnecessary. You don’t need to learn many of the skills which, previously, affiliate marketers once needed to know.
Learn by doing. Don’t get stuck in the learning process and forget to actually build your online business. Don’t be a ‘busy fool’. Working online can be fun and interesting but you should value your time and not squander it. Do the most important things first and the things which matter the most. Don’t get stuck in the learning process and forget to ‘do’.
