How To Start With Affiliate Marketing

1/ Start With The Right Mindset

Many of us have already given up in our thoughts before we have even started. Banish the negative thoughts that seek to pull you down and embrace the positive points listed here and you will surely succeed!

2/ Believe In Yourself That You ARE Able

You can do this! Did you ever think twice about breathing? Not really, it happens automatically. Did you ever think twice about thinking, not really, it happens automatically, did you ever stop to think about thinking? My point is, if you are able to do these things without any effort, imagine what you can do WITH effort! You are able!

3/ It Can Be Done, 1000s Of Others Have Succeeded

It is most definitely possible as there are many stories of success at Wealthy Affiliate of many people who thought the same as you, but they embraced the fact that they

For me, after searching the internet and trying various platforms, I believe Wealthy Affiliate is the best place to be because you get phenomenal value for your investment and it is ongoing, evolving and just gets better and better every month!

6/ Follow The Training And Don't Deviate From It!

Many learners fall down hard with this one as they become distracted with other training happening and then they deviate from the task at hand.
The training at WA
is designed to keep you on track if you focus and follow one step at a time. All the things that I fell prey to, I am finding are covered in the training as I become focused and follow it step by step.
Don't fall into the same trap and jump the gun, it WILL be covered! Stay FOCUSED!

7/ Create Content On A Consistent Basis Over A Period Of Time

This is my number one failure! Oh, granted, I've created content, but I like to be thorough and give it my best shot, this is all good and well, however, I need to be consistent and create content diligently over a period of time and not be distracted with other things that deviate my attention away from the goal.
