Quora - similar to Reddit but it’s not anonymous so you have to limit how much you ask/share if you want to protect your niche and your ideas. But, it’s nice for getting answers from actual “known” experts. That’s the one drawback to Reddit - someone on here that claims to be an authority could actually just be some guy living in his mom’s basement regurgitating information found on the internet.
I have looked over very many IM courses some are really pricey but if you want to get a lot of info for free before you think about buying something I would try Mark Ling. You can sign up for the free member stuff which gives you access to a ton of videos and written articles that tell you a lot about IM. Once you check out all the free stuff which could take a month there is that much stuff it would give you a better Idea of what type of IM stuff you want to do. There are a lot of ways to make money on line and a lot of people to e-mail marketing but you have to start a list of people who you have gotten to sign up for something you are offering and often that can be a feat in itself.
When I started out in affiliate marketing, I had less than no money, I was completely broke and had huge debts. I couldn't even contemplate spending money on advertising, on anything, in fact - other than trying to pay the bills and trying to get food for the family. If this describes you, don't worry - all this means is that you'll have to ignore any paid marketing to begin with and focus purely on your forte.

To help save your time, I’m going to just tell you what program I think works best and the program that I am STILL a part of to this very day. After months of searching, I got a recommendation from a friend to check out Wealthy Affiliate. Needless to say, I was pretty blown away by it. They offer every tool you’ll need to grow your business and they train you on how to use all those tools. You will also get access to their training which gives you all the information you need to know in the order you need to know it in.
It was about 2 years from starting how to make money online before I found Wealthy Affiliate, spending loads on sites which had none or very little training, Scams! Then when I signed up for WA I couldn`t believe how good it was with all the help when you had problems and questions, there is a community of dedicated entrepreneurs some with years of marketing experience giving you a hand when you`re stuck which with me was quite a bit.
Now this is the most thorough review I have seen yet. You did not miss one thing. I almost wanted to go and fix mine asap! LOL I really loved how you walked us right through the back office and what happens there. I have not seen that before and also the testimonies. You should be very proud of sharing this, Anh. Anyone visiting, WA is just as Anh says.
I don’t regret the attempt and I certainly don’t discount the lessons I learned. I do however regret that I hadn’t learned more about affiliate marketing while I was running my own show. I certainly would have been in a different place if I had known even a little bit about it. The one business that’s still around had a pretty robust website that was focused in the fitness “niche”. At the time that I stopped working on my business we peaked at around 30K pageviews for the month (early 2012) but were only generating about $600/month in advertising revenue! Ahhh, hindsight! I was trying to go door-to-door and get advertisers to buy ads - wow, that was hard.
Luxury Brand shoppers are looking to maximize the value of their purchase like any other consumer. By partnering with a publisher that offers a reward for the purchase this can convert customers who otherwise would be on the fence about making the purchase, or even sway the customer to making a purchase with your brand over others because of the added value they find with you.
Next, it’s completely normal to have reservations about publishers that are in coupon/loyalty based programs, but just because they’re more widespread across their advertiser offerings doesn’t mean they won’t give special treatment to Luxury Brand advertisers. Rakuten affiliate experts noted that many publishers in these models recognize the importance of presentation and aesthetics for Luxury Brands and are more than happy to provide customized brand pages for their luxury partners. The best way to find out how to accomplish this is to work with your Rakuten account representative.
