    So being no stranger to web design, I have made a decent living doing commercial web design but have become board recently and want a new challenge. I have friends that claim that they are making "Crazy money" (usually means different things to different people) doing affiliate marketing.

    I am in the position to learn this from some of them but figured I'd go it alone and see if I can learn from others first (mainly so I don't look like a total amateur with them). If I am able to start a residual income from this type of work that will prove to me that maybe they aren't all BS'ing their stories!

    So I guess with this intro... I say PLEASE don't HELP ME but Please Teach me or Guide me at the very least! I need to know what the best tools are that I won't find easy in the FAQ's (remember that half of those are either out of date or simply just bad) I have lists of Affiliate sites and memberships on most already but need some help in driving traffic and for finding the best way to go about having a long lasting and low overhead program

    I'm a noob too and the way I'm learning is by reading a lot of posts on this forum and googling anything I want more info on. It's the only way to learn really, unless you have a lot of money already and can afford personal training.

    You won't be spoon fed on this forum. Folks are helpful, but you gotta bring specific issues.

    Good luck on your journey, I hope you make crazy money too.

    Welcome! I am currently learning affiliate marketing, I highly recommend reading the following articles:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/easy-100-a-day-perfect-for-noobs.359445/
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/m...on-newbie-friendly-phase-5a-published.832879/

    These two are by meathead1234, who's method is all about starting your site without ranking for a keyword but instead networking to other sites to gain traffic. A great way to start out without spending much money and then you can go for SEO later. I will be starting the second article shortly.

    Quickly go to this thread:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/g...-easy-to-rank-keywords-for-free.892708/unread

    And see if you can't get a free keyword, might be all gone though.

    Tools:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/free-35-of-the-best-seo-tools-to-use.773298/

    Just some general tools that can be quite helpful.


    A rather large guide:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/u...he-sites-that-are-insanely-profitable.687867/

    This is a pretty good guide which will teach the general gists of everything.

    There are more articles though I don't have them handy, I'm still learning as well but figured I'd share what I've found so far.

    Good luck in your journey, feel free to message me if you'd like to have a friendly chat!

    Hi SPSPro,

    dont forget that in the end affiliate marketing is nothing more than publishing ur link of the company including ur individual tracking id.

    That means u dont have to publish this link only via a website ;)

    Start beeing creative and learn from daily things how people are getting u to buy something. I prefer for publishing links E-Mailmarketing and mobile messages ;)

    If u want to make enough money for a basic income via affiliate marketing u nearly have to support ur link with such methods.

    I hope I my message was helpfull and would be glad to hear how ur going on ;)

    Greetings
