    Hi, I'm wondering, how would you recommend a noob to start learning about affiliate marketing and how the whole process works? I have a website and I see all these awesome ideas but I just want to learn the basics. I know how to code some html and I have a good command of the english language etc. I mean, I've bought a few internet marketing ebooks and learned a tiny bit about copywriting but where can one find a mentor? I'm not rich or anything I'm just a med student but I'm trying to learn ways to help pay off loans etc.

    Anyone willing to mentor a nice kind noob who will work hard? I'm not asking to waste your time, just a direction so I can put in the work and learn from mistakes and become better.

    You've come to the right place. What I've learned is that you should read as much as you can (don't worry about buying eBooks, you can usually find them for free... honestly, you can find anything you've ever wanted to know right here on BHW). But, you should do more. That's most people's problem and something I still struggle with. Just keep doing, trying, and testing until you find something that works for you.

    I think the best way to learn is IM is through your own trial and error.
    It took me 2 years to make some decent side cash of the internet

    It aint easy..

    if you are new, i would highly reccomend to go for wordpress, easier, doesnt take too long to learn, 1 day max to build a nice website.
    for affiliate marketing, you should learn about clickbank, visit and create account there.
    but Still, as advised, reading is the key, just keep reading for a month or 2 before investing into anything, all the information is available here.
    if you need help just feel free to pm me or some others members.
    Thanks and regards,
    peter

    Just dont wait till somebody teach you the basics. Rather the best and apt thing to learn is by reading and experimenting. Things will be notch when it comes out of experience and unless u learn it in the hard way, u wont taste the essence of hardwork. I know its bitter but its the truth...

    Hi,

    I recommend you search online for websites (mostly information sites or portal) on affiliate marketing. I also recommend you to get at least 3 top gurus (of your choice) on affiliate marketing/IM then follow their blogs so you can read a lot of good stuff. There are actually a lot of free information online. Start from there then have a list of steps and strategies (based from what you've learned) and apply them to your site :)

    If I may recommend a good website on learning the ropes to affiliate marketing, you can check our Affilorama's free tutorials on affiliate marketing. They have this step-by-step video tutorials, which is great.

    Good luck!

    OP, you won't find a Guru or Mentor here. The best way to learn is read through the forum for a while, then just do it.
    You will learn from your mistakes and every success will be more rewarding because you have taught yourself.
