Let me be very honest with you..
It’s not a quick-rich scheme. If you are here searching for something which can change your life in the next few days, then I am sorry, this article is not for you.
You can close this tab right now and read some other articles instead.
But, if you are someone who has the passion to learn, implement, and above all, have a lot of patience, then this article is for you.
Affiliate marketing is not just writing articles and making a lot of money.
Before you start affiliate marketing as a beginner, you’ll have to finalize on thing first.
and that’s TRAFFIC.
Decide from the day one that you want traffic from SEO or with paid ads.
SEO (Search engine optimization) will take at least 6-7 months before you see any results. Paid traffic, on the other hand, would need a lot of money for the testing.
So I highly recommend SEO as the primary traffic source when you are a newbie in affiliate marketing.
Ads are not the key to real profit
I’m sure you’re disappointed, but let me be honest with you, ads aren’t what you’re looking for to make a real profit from your blog.
Yes, Mashable is making money with ads, but are you Mashable? How long will it take you to have that huge audience?
It’ll take you years and years to get that audience in this crowded internet.
