I tell you very bluntly and honestly what it will take, and I give you step-by-step instructions on the best way to approach this industry in this free eBook.
This particular email course took me weeks to get straight. SIMPLE7 is a free niche marketing course I created that takes you through the exact 7 steps I go through when launching a new website. I teach everything from niche research to building a website, email marketing to conversion optimization, traffic generation to testing and tracking. There is A LOT of information in this course and, like everything I do, it’s 100% free.
Wealthy Affiliate is an internet marketing program that offers two membership levels: free and paid. Both are excellent, but you’ll be blown away by how much information you receive for free when you create a “starter” account. It doesn’t require any payment information so you don’t have to worry about getting billed for something you didn’t want to buy somewhere down the road. I’ve done a full, comprehensive Wealthy Affiliate review and I would recommend looking it over if you’re thinking about checking out their huge library of affiliate marketing lessons and awesome community.
Maybe what you’re looking for at this stage is just a little less advanced. Affiliate marketing is a very complex concept and there aren’t a lot of good, concise explanations online. I wrote a very good explanation and had this video professionally produced so you had a good visual representation of everything I’m explaining, and it takes less than a minute and a half of your day.
I can’t take credit for this free affiliate marketing resource, and I have no affiliation with Pat. I’d be surprised if he even knows who I am. But he has done a great service putting together articles, lessons, and resources that are incredibly helpful for new internet marketers. Long story short, he got into affiliate marketing by accident while studying for a big architecture test, got laid off not long after passing that test, and found that the blog he originally created to help him study for the test was getting a massive amount of traffic. He developed his own product and began marketing it, and so began the story of Pat Flynn and Smart Passive Income – one of the best resources in the affiliate marketing industry.
