    I am completely confused about where to start for affiliate marketing. I would like to start selling CB products but i am flexible, Also i would like to start building a email list but i need a program or something to handle that.
    Can someone please give me some sort of advice on where to go and what to do next. I have been looking at this website for a few days now and there is so much information it is amazing.

    I just don't know where to start, If someone would like to get into a joint venture and help me get my first few products of some sort going and we will split earnings i am up for that i just need a bit of direction thats all. Or i would pay someone to teach me some ways of advertising methods that you have done, I want to start up with minimal costs tho because i just simply cant afford that much.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Choose a keyword which is related to most of your products and do some SEO on it. You will get better ranking on Google and then your business will start.

    Thanks

    I would become more familiar with wordpress and how it works. Buy a domain (preferably an exact match domain - look up why on this site) and hosting (Host Gator is friendly for newbies - good customer service in my opinion) and build a site with wordpress. Then learn how to get it to rank (this will take time).

    This website is filled with information to help you with each of those steps. I recommend you spend a month or two just reading, reading and reading until you get comfortable with what's going on around here and the techniques we use. Focus on one thing at a time and be patient. People link "internet" to "instant" for everything. That may be true for surfing the web (in most cases) but it certainly isn't true for internet marketing/affiliate marketing.

    Good luck...

    Agree with teeniegenie - if you want to succeed take the time to read everything you can. Expect to spend at least a month reading and familiarizing yourself with the terms, how to do it successfully, etc. It isn't easy, but if you are serious and don't give up when you don't see immediate results, you should be fine. Some things may seem like gibberish to you, but keep reading and it will all start to make sense :)
