After months of reading on here and not knowing where to start because of the information overload everywhere, I finally bit the bullet last week and tried out one the the e-whoring techniques I've read on here. I've been making steady 40-80 dollars a day now for the past several days for only an hour or so work. I added my own twist to it and am getting 30-40% conversions and it feels great! Now that I've made my first dollar online, I'm very excited to start taking further ACTION rather than submitting to paralysis by analysis again, because I know it can be done. I'm making more just "working" an hour a day now than I did during a full 8 hour day busting my ass at my previous job. However I know ewhoring doesn't last as companies start converting you to revshare programs. I've decided to start signing up to various affiliate sites (like cj, hydra etc) and try my hand at selling stuff -REAL Internet Marketing. I've been learning a lot of HTML and CSS so I can have a basic knowledge at setting up sites and running them. I'll move on to php, etc once I'm familiar with the basics. However, I'm having a hard time getting started with the next step I'm wanting to take. I'm reading about doorway pages, squeeze pages, blogs, buildings lists etc. and don't know where to start. I want to try promoting some free CPA offers and I want to do it through my own website -because it is something I have to learn. But all these terms and specialized sites are confusing. I've made a wordpress in the past, I decked it out with a lot of plugins I've found on here and even customized it a bit, but then forgot about it because I realized that the keyword I built it around -quit smoking -was way out of my league at the moment. I'm thinking of making another wordpress blog and submitting it as my site on affiliate applications and using it to sell shit until I learn the more advanced stuff like squeeze pages, etc. This is where I get a mental block. 1. Do I make a general blog (i.e something promoting dating offers) so I can keep making new blog posts on it with my new aff links to various offers? Or do I make a blog on one specific product, make a single post reviewing it and move on? -if there's any wiggle room, I'd also be interested in taking my quit smoking blog and finding a way to niche down with it to promote stuff on there. 2. I can't just sell shit in every post because I'm going to come off as a snake oils man, so how do you get around the fact that by making a content rich blog, everytime you make a new post your older posts (containing your aff link -MONEY) falls down your page and gets less exposure? 3. How much content should I have on my wordpress blog before I start signing up to affiliates (that require a webpage)? I really want to get started soon with this. I'm going to be creating a company name and getting all the papers set up for it soon, I really want to get started for real this time. I've spent too much time researching and not enough doing and now I know I have everything here I need to start making some cash while I learn the more advanced stuff. I'm not looking for a walkthrough, believe me I've been reading massive amounts of threads on here the past few months, just some general tips on where to get started with affiliate marketing. (type of site/blog, offers and such). Even a link to a thread I may have overlooked with what I need would be hugely appreciated. Also, a big Thanks to everyone here for all the great threads! The fact that I'm actually making money now by just sitting at my desk is really liberating, without all the information on here I'd probably still be doing nothing, reading threads on DP and getting nowhere. Thanks BHW!!
