Just starting out...
Good morning! I am just starting out as an affiliate marketer, and would love any tips or suggestions you could give. I have started a blog, Facebook page, Twitter page, and email in which I will promote my affiliate sites. Tips on getting traffic would especially be helpful!

I'd recommend learning the basics about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). It has become more challenging in recent years, but it's still good to know a little bit about it.

It sounds like you are making a good start with the social media, etc.

Solo Ads are also a good bet.

Lisa Irby has a good ebook and free website on the topic; read as much about making money online as you can! Then, try to automate as much as you can in order to free up more time to invest into your business. I agree with Gear and Dana...SEO is one of the easiest ways to get lots of free traffic. Another tip I have is to build your sites with a self-hosted Wordpress account--there are so many free helpful plugins on Wordpress and it just makes it much easier...that way you can focus on creating content and growing your audience.

good advice and good steps taken...

overall, make sure your content is useful to your desired base. if you have that, then the rest is easy.

i once tried to make a website under the keywords heart healthy. i was presenting the information in what actually is heart healthy but i dont think the readers liked it.
they were more so looking for the typical things that are said to be heart healthy such as yogurt, or "healthy" frozen packaged meals ,etc. None of these are heart healthy.

Looking back, i could have still had the heart healthy website but should have targeted the site to people who are interested in natural foods and natural methods,etc.

Social Marketing with your Facebook, Twitter and Google+ is a free alternative. You just need to get some skill in creating friend's lists and finding the people that have similar interests. How to interact with these people and providing informative information. If you have a product local trade shows can be away of getting your company out as well.

I believe Educating yourself via alot of reading through this forum, or others like it. I read up and learned a ton for about 2-3 weeks. Then I picked a Niche and just Tried something!

The Best way to learn is to fail, the best way to fail is to TAKE ACTION!
