im just getting into the field of affiiate marketing now and im not really familiar with most of the terms and programs so i dont really know about penguin and panda, but i am really looking forward to being successful in this field. what would you suggest for starting as an affiliate. i dont have a blog and i am not very good when it comes to writing. i just feel like i need somewhere to start or learn how to make at least first sale. I feel like making a sale is almost impossible being that i dont have a site with a lot of traffic. and how do i go about selling expensive products. like for example i wanted to start off trying to promote a sports betting system because these have a good per sale and they also have a good rebill monthly pay-off.
but the problem im afraid will face is that, consumers will come to the page and leave it to do research on the product(and if anything they'll buy the product elsewhere,not off my affiliate page)
another thing i was thinking, maybe it would be good to make a site that promotes all kinds of e-books.But im not sure if this would be successful and dont want to waste time,effort, and money on something that will fail.
im 18 and really trying to make a buisiness out of this.

Please help, any advice is very appreciated.

Hi Remie, great questions and congrats for getting into the space. I remember when I was 18 I wrote a 5 year financial plan for myself and set personal goals that I was was determined to see through. As a result of that drive/ focus and desire I owned 4 properties, 3 businesses, had 2 amazing kids and married one awesome guy all before I turned 30. Reading your post, I think you're actually a very strong writer and could do well with a blog, which may be a good place to start. If you'd like help setting that up, you can contact me directly or checkout a bunch of other low cost options for setting up a blog. I recommend wordpress. You can also follow and learn from James Martell (affiliate marketers super bootcamp) who will help you do it right. He can help you find your vertical / niche and get you started. The way you're thinking is good - what niche would you enjoy that there is a lot of demand for, then maybe try to break it down into an even smaller niche that has enough demand but not many people doing it well. You don't have to write a blog to be an affiliate marketer either. You could start building an email list of people who trust and follow you. You could work out personal deals with the merchants and get custom tracking (coupon code, exclusive phone number or custom URL) and promote offline through newspapers, brochures, business cards, or even speaking at events. There are a lot of ways to go. But first you have to pick your niche and stick with it. It takes time. You're doing the right thing by researching and learning now. If you want to chat more about what options you have feel free to drop me a line.
