    Your first point is the reason I have not yet taken on any internet marketing training online – I’m aware there are good programs out there but I have no idea what would be considered ‘overpriced’…mainly because they all seem a little expensive to me!

    I followed the link to the training you recommend at the end of this article and I was surprised to see that they offer a free level of education – have I read this correctly?

    On top of that – would this type of training be suitable for someone that hasn’t really had any interest or experience in marketing before?

      Hello Chris,

      Usually legitimate affiliate marketing training courses offer a free trial (or membership) or something like a 7-day trial period for 7 days.

      The training i recommend (Wealthy Affiliate) is ideal for beginners and you won’t find a better deal at that price. 

      Thank you for your comment,

    Hey Nikos;

    This is a very helpful blog post for people starting, or thinking about starting, affiliate marketing. You obviously have good experience in this sector.

    I have a new-ish blog, and I’m getting some traffic, but lately I’m wondering if there are other things I should focus on now. I’m pretty good at being disciplined and creating content regularly. Your post has given me some ideas to start considering. I think it’s time for me to get creative and maybe try something like YouTube. I’ve been a bit shy about that, but I think if I research it well, and start slow, I can maybe get used to a different way to approach content. As a writer, I tend to forget about other forms of content.

    Thanks for the boost toward new ideas! Stella 🙂

      You should definetely go for it. Video marketing is huge right now and the trend is not slowing down.

    i can agree that there are sites out there with misleading information about affiliate marketing, and I am glad that yours is NOT one of them! I fell for one of those overpriced training programmes that get you in with the tripwire and then crush your dreams with the ever exorbitant up sells. I think these tips are great.

    Affiliate marketing can be lucrative but only when you know how. Affiliate marketing is also not about getting rich quick (although it may happen) it is more about building relationships with actual humans and that means quality content.

    I enjoyed reading about your tips aspiring affiliate marketers. I keep hearing about building an email list but I’m not really sure how to do that or what I would do with it I had one. Any chance you could write a post with more detail about how to do an email list and then ideas of what to do with it? Your tip about not using too many banner ads kind of hit home for me. I have my sidebar plastered with them. You are not the first to say that too many ads in the sidebar turns people away. I think based on your advice and others are going to remove the ads from my sidebar and see if I get better traffic and retention. Thanks for the tips and I look forward to hearing more from you.

    Good afternoon Nikos,

    Thank you for this good and detailed post. I like your statistics as that gives a nice visual presentation of past, present, and future.

    As there is so much nonsense out there in the internet world your post is like a guide for people who want to start affilate marketing. 

    I understand that a good training program does not have to cost the world. The promise that you will earn big money straight away is not true. For that to happen one will have to work hard, it is good you point that out. 

    I can see that by being creative you put your personal note and that in the future your website will stand out. A good tip telling your reader not to put too many ads on a post as like that the content will drown.

    Regards, Taetske
