    Welcome and everyone is new at some point in their lives.

    No idea why your'e already asking about campaigns though. Learn to walk before trying to run.

    You're absolutely right, but I think I'm just about ready to start running campaigns that's why I asked. I have a few questions in regards of getting started. So I plan on swiping existing campaigns that are already working for others and optimizing a few elements. How should I get started with this? Do I need tools like WhatRunsWhere? I plan on using bluehost for hosting, and CPV Labs for tracking I also plan on promoting my offers by native ads, media buying, FB, and Bing. But however, if I'm going to use advertorials how do I prevent myself from being banned?

    Yeah, I was the same and still feel overwhelmed at times. I have a journey thread here.

    If you have the budget I recommend udemy courses. If you are a total beginner, like I was in many things, spending $10 or $15 to get everything explained to you was worth it. In particular Shree's [from the forum] excellent build an affiliate site udemy course. I learned a ton from it. I prefer this instead of picking up bits and pieces of information about something in fragments online for free.

    But some folks don't have that type of money to spend so I read, the re-read, then re-read again, almost all of the stickied posts in the different forums. They are stickied for a reason.

    Also set yourself some realistic goals.

    Good luck!
