When I first got started with Affiliate Marketing, I thought everything online was real. Looking at all the flashy stuff online, I believed it was easy to make money online and wondered how so many people were earning thousands from the internet. I never even heard of the term "Affiliate Marketing" until I stumbled upon Travis Sago's Bum Marketing. That's when I began learning about Affiliate Marketing, what it was and how to make money online promoting other people's products.
I am not saying these numbers to discourage you, but this is the beginning stage of learning about this business, and I want for you to be smart and not be sucked into these hype products that are scams or do not have true value, or begin your Affiliate Marketing journey as a hobby, not a business.
The basic understanding of Affiliate Marketing
A. This is a business, not a hobby
If you treat this business like a hobby, you will get hobby results. Do not step in thinking you are suppose to make hundreds of dollars without putting in work. You must put in work to see results.
