    Hello all! Joined a couple of weeks ago and have to say, I love reading and learning new things. Cannot wait to attempt my first IM venture.

    At the moment I am thinking affiliate marketing. Most likely amazon. Just because I have knowledge of a niche I think I can do well in.

    My question is as follows though in terms of where to begin.

    buy a domain, buy a host site and then wordpress?

    Seems to be the basic of it. Obviously there are steps after that from what I am reading but to basically start off is that about it?

    At what point would I need proxies/VPS though. Just curious.

    Thank you all for creating such a great site! ^^

    Getting a site established is only half the battle and usually the easy part. The hard part is driving traffic. There are a number of white hat and black hat methods out there. You can build an expert-like brand on YouTube, or run PPC campaigns... those are just 2 white hat methods. Otherwise on the black hat side, there are lots of spamming techniques involving social media and SEO.
