Do your research before you go PREMIUM. Talk to other WA members. Find out success rates. This business is tough despite what you are told.
Dont fool yoirself. Be prepared to put a full 5 years of effort, time AND Capital into this affiliate business because today you cannot be successful without paying for FACEBOOK ADS, GOOGLE search Ads, Instagram Ads. Spend money to make money.
Maybe 5 or 10 years ago you could easily be successful much faster at affiliate marketing but truth is that today you cannot be.
Treat this like a business start up company. Write a 5 year business plan and you just might find success after sticking with it for at least 5 years. Sorry, this is the truth. Ive owned many different businesses. Ive started many and failed at a few. This is the truth despite what you might here otherwise.
Unless, you want a fun hobby site, or a charity....you need to be willing to work for free and spend money on advertising and marketing in order to get traffic (not paid traffic, that doesnt work, but real fb or google ads).
People will cringe when they hear this and others will balk. But, its true. Prove to me otherwise. Find me real statistics of how many people succeed in their first year today doing affiliate marketing here at WA or anywhere. Even 2-3years...how many succeed versus fail?
Id fund out before you commit. - matt b.
