    Well,
    I have holidays which means I have 1 more month to learn as much as I can on affiliate topic. I'm starting micro niche site now but it's just small sh*it. I prefer DIY (Do it Yourself) so I make everything, except writing content, by myself.

    I have some knowledge of Keyword Research and OnPage seo (content lenght, titles, metas, image optimalization, internal links, headings etc. etc.). I don't know Linkbuilding and I can't write content at all.

    So I'm here to ask you what should I learn during this one month, what should I do, where should I learn. I'm still in High School but I know I want to do something related with Internet Marketing in futurre and I thought affiliate marketing sounds like a good idea where to start.

    The second thought which came to my mind is that someone could "hire" me. Like you know, you have too much work and you don't mind hiring beginner. You would give me tasks and I would do my best to complete them. Then you would tell me what I did wrong what I did well etc. etc.

    Sorry for a long post and thanks for answering :D,
    Vasary

    There is a lot to learn buddy, use the time to learn basic html/php, start with wordpress. Just to get an idea how sites are made/maintained. That'd help you a lot in the future.

    Sales psychology as I have repeated billions of times. You need to understand how to trigger an emotion that will make people buy products from you, rather than silly spam and crappy seo services. You can then pump ppc and seo campaigns once you learn how to sell, which if you knew what you needed to, you wouldn't be here posting about it would you?

    Some terrible responses in here

    1. Do your best finding keywords you think you can rank
    2. Without hesitating buy a domain + hosting that's relevant to your keywords
    3. Start writing content and try to do your best with on site SEO
    4. Take a look around on BHW and read into web 2.0 guides and start building your own
    5. Ask prominent members on BHW intelligent questions so they give you good answers. Make sure you take their advice and apply it
    6. See where you stand in 2 months in terms of rankings and $$

    Don't spend all day reading guides or those stupid books you find on Amazon written by a dude who's only business experience is selling flowers to his grandma. Just give it your best shot and then expand your knowledge based on your experience. Stick with it and it clicks eventually.

    Learn budgeting 101. Keep track of all your expenses!

    A lot of people end up burning through hundreds even THOUSANDS, and say to themselves "I don't know what happened".

    Set clear goals, with expectations. e.g.

    This particular website, hosting + SEO will cost me XXXX
    in order to break-even, XXX needs to be sold.

    From there you can slowly learn how to cut costs, whether its contracting bloggers to write for you, or writing a blog yourself. Don't focus on ranking & SEO if you can't even sell a product/service yourself..
