HOW TO REALLY LEARN HOW TO GET STARTED IN AFFILIATE MARKETING

15 11 2009

Hey everyone, I hope everything is great out there with all my friends in the happy blogosphere.  I am especially excited today, as I am everyday, to speak on the old issue of Affiliate Marketing.   I am going to be one of many to tell you that nothing good comes to you very quickly it take a bit of work but I came across some very interesting information in Website Magazine (Join for Free).  Where it talked about  Affiliate Marketing Benchmarks have not been as good as expected.

Like most of you I am very new to the concept of earning money buy talking about my passion which happens to be the Internet and Mobile Marketing.  In my quest, as usual, for information I came across an article regarding Affiliates failing to measure up to the expectations of the forecasters on the Internet.  What I am trying to say is not as many people as was expected got into the game of Affiliate Marketing atleast not on a fulltime basis, which is confusing to me.  What I pictured in my head was “going to a mall packed with consumers, buyers, and people wanting to purchase or do business and there being only two or three stores in the mall”.  Wow! I thought what a great opportunity for those that take the time to learn and understand the Internet and earn a great living.  I have watched some of these people in their early twenties (my daughter for one) who have been at this for only a 3 months begin to earn as much as 500/wk.  I know this doesn’t sound like much to some, but guess what those who have persevered are now making on the low side 6 figure incomes on an annual basis, and they are clamoring for help out here in the web world.  There seems to be no shortage of room for a new affiliate to get started and grow.  I read a book called “Click” by Bill Tancer .  In his book he talks about something called Pareto’s Rule (80/20) which is to say that 20% of the people earn 80% of the wealth and how on the Internet the rule is more like 90-9-1.  How the 90-9-1 principle or rule breaks down is 90% of the people on the Internet are lookers or lurkers(social audience) and 9% are out there looking for something specific(editors) and 1% are actually out there trying to sell information items or goods($Creators$).  For a person who is looking to do something to earn an income from home there are a lot of websites out there that are truly not scams, there are also a lot of programs out there that will teach you how to get up and going on the Internet and it maybe at some small fee to you but the benefits you derive from it are forever long lasting.

One program that I am a favorite of is Mark Ling’s training website from Clickbank.com call Affiliorama.com and it is “FREE”, of course why not train those who would be selling your products, believe it or not this is basically his point of view I really like this Marks’ style (not a plug at all).  He is very willing to give you very good tried and tested tools for free, if you just stick with the program you will be able to one of the few to “UNDERSTAND” how income is derived via the web and then quickly put it into effect within your first week of training.
