OK. Now that you understand exactly what Affiliate Marketing is, let’s discuss what you need to get started.

First of all, let me say, that many, many, people who are new to Affiliate Marketing, and have a desire to pursue creating an Online Affiliate Marketing Business, do not have a clue on how to achieve their goals. That is OK! I did not know anything about it myself when I first started out. No one is born with this knowledge, and you should never apologize for being new and asking basic questions. Everyone has to start at the beginning.

Asking questions is the only way that one gains knowledge for anything. Never apologize for, and never be ashamed of asking questions. Ask away, and you shall receive answers.


So, what do you need or do not need in order to start in an Online Affiliate Marketing Business?

Let me first clarify a few skills that you do not need:

    • You do not need to invest a lot of money in this to get started.
    • You do not need to be an expert typist.
    • You do not need to be a computer wiz.
    • You do not need to be an accomplished writer.


The only requirements that you do need to begin pursuing a career in Online Affiliate Marketing are as follows:

  1. You do need access to a computer and an internet connection. Without these, it will very difficult to succeed.
  2. You do need to have a few basic computer skills:
    • You need to be able to turn your computer on and off, and log in.
    • You need to be able to access the internet and know how to use the search function to find what you are looking for.
    • You need to have some basic typing skills. (Hunt and peck is OK to start with. Increase your speed over time.)

3. You do need to have a strong desire to succeed, and be willing to put forth the efforts necessary to achieve your goals.


This is no ‘get rich quick scheme‘, nor is it a ‘set it and forget it’ type of operation. It will take work, consistent hard work, in order to produce results, but when those results begin to come, they will be limited only by your ability to continue to perform the steps needed to continue achieving.


Everything else that is needed, will all be taught in the Step-by-Step Lessons. While I know that many, many, questions will pop into your mind as you go along, please be patient, and go through the training, step-by-step. Most of your questions will be answered there, and at the appropriate time.

While it is OK to keep a list of questions that you might have, there is never any point to ‘putting the cart before the horse’. For instance, there is no point in asking: ‘How do I analyze the data in my Google Analytics?’, before your Analytics Account is set up and you are receiving regular Traffic to your site. You should confine your questions based on the training step that you are currently on. If you do not fully understand something in the training, please ask. I will happy to attempt to explain it to you in a way that you will understand.


Where is This Training?


My training is accessible through the Top Menu on my website:  HelpMeGetMine.com  Simply click on the  Phase 1  Heading in the Top Menu, and begin with:  Introduction.  You can also access any particular training, by clicking on the appropriate link in my:  Table of Contents.

Much of my training is based on my mentor’s training at their website:  Wealthy Affiliate.  It is FREE to join, and there is an enormous amount of training there on creating a Successful Online Affiliate Marketing Business. It is a very Pay-it-Forward type of platform, and many seasoned members there are happy to answer any questions that you might have. Check them out and see for yourself.


My training is meant to enhance the training found there. Whether you follow mine or theirs, does not really matter. You can succeed either way. The important thing is that you follow the training step-by-step, asking questions if you get stuck or do not completely understand something.


The additional things that Wealthy Affiliate offers that I do not are as follows:

    • Free Websites and Free Hosting for those sites
    • Hundreds of Video Training on a variety of related subjects
    • Live Chat, where you can ask questions and get quick answers from seasoned members
    • Thousands of related training blogs, written by the members at Wealthy Affiliate, as well as the owners.
    • and much, much, more


Additional Training Not Found at Wealthy Affiliate


The training that you will find in my  Phase 2  training, will not be found at Wealthy Affiliate. It is training specifically designed to show you exactly how to:

  • Set Up Your Business
  • Create a Business Plan
  • Set Up Your Bookkeeping
  • Keep Track of Income and Expenses
  • Complete Your Taxes
  • and more.


Most of my other training can also be found at  Wealthy Affiliate,  and my training is simply an enhancement of their training, explained in a little different way, with additional information added where appropriate.


All of this combined training is geared toward helping you succeed. However, all  of the training in the world will not be enough for you to succeed by itself. You will need to be committed for the long haul, and be willing to not only follow the training, but apply the training as you learn, and put forth all of the efforts into your business that are needed in order for you to succeed.


How Long Before I Start Seeing Income?


The answer to that question is different for everyone. It depends on many, many, factors. Some people have begun seeing income within the first few months, others at 6 months, and still others at over a year. Some of the members that have been with Wealthy Affiliate for a few years are earning 6-figure incomes. Others actually belong to the Millionaire’s Club.

The success is there for the taking. You just need to be able to spend consistent time on a weekly basis, continue to create new content, follow all of the training to the letter, and never give up. You will reach your goals.


The best thing about this business, is that you choose the hours you wish to work. You can work as little or as much as you want to each week. You can work from anywhere, whether from home, on vacation, or at the library. You can have the freedom to spend more quality time with your family, take more vacations, and eventually enjoy the good life that you deserve, all while continuously earning more and improving your life style.


In Closing


Everyone reaches crossroads in life. Do you turn left, turn right, go straight ahead, turn around and go back where you came from? The decisions that you make, not only affect you, but also the people around you; your immediate family.

There is nothing worse, than having regrets during your life; ‘I should have done this’, or ‘I should have tried that’. The measure of any great man or woman, is not how many times they have failed, but how they responded to those failures. As babies, we all fell down many times during our quest to be able to learn how to walk. Where would we be if we had decided back then, that it was too hard and not really worth the effort? Many a boxer has gotten knocked down in a fight, only to get back up and eventually become victorious.

Why not give this a try? Wealthy Affiliate is FREE to join, and you can remain FREE there for the rest of your life, if you so desire. It will cost you nothing but a little of your time to check it out.
