I’ve been researching and experimenting with this area of online enterprise for some time so it was a pleasant surprise to find some free training in affiliate marketing provided by experts in this field.
Affilorama was founded by a chap called Mark Ling. He also happens to be a millionaire and he achieved this status through affiliate marketing.
Now he spends this time running a business that teaches others what he has learned. He is at the top of the ladder but he’s reaching down to help others up and the best bit about it is that some of those lessons are free of charge.
Mark started out on the ground floor, experimenting and learning as he delved into the world of affiliate marketing. He enjoyed some early success but like many who didn’t know what was ahead he was hit heavily by the Google algorithm changes. Sales dropped dramatically and success turned into failure and debt.
Dismayed and disillusioned he returned to the day job. However, the prospect of a lifetime at the coal face working for someone else was too depressing to contemplate so he gathered his energies together and launched back into the project.
Having applied what he’d already learned and added new techniques he found a way through and made his fortune.
So Mark Ling is like a pathfinder. He’s walked the whole route, found a way around or over obstacles, and now he’s ready to show you the way. What he has done others can do.
Not only that but a significant chunk of the material he’s put online is available free of charge. So now you’ve got now excuse for not starting your own journey into affiliate marketing.
Here’s the link to over 100 FREE lessons in affiliate marketing.
If you have any experience already in this subject then you will probably already be aware of the basic formula; finding profitable products to promote etc, so this list of categories will come as no surprise.
While they may not seem a revelation the important thing to remember is that they are the essential fundamentals. If you can master these then you can build a successful business.
* How to research and choose products that are worth the effort that goes into promotion
* How to design and create websites that will keep visitors on the page and engage with them
* How to optimise those websites for on-page and off-page search engine optimisation
* How to generate instant pay per click traffic with the right keywords and ad groups
* How to hire talented people who will grow your business by taking on the tasks you delegate to them
The videos are clear, concise, and not too long, so your focus and attention is maintained. This is the secret to absorbing knowledge piece by piece.
The training videos are categorised and displayed in such a way that you can work through them one by one if you’re a complete beginner. Alternatively, if you already have some experience you can cherry-pick and only watch those you feel are relevant to you.
However, I would suggest you use all of them for revision. All to often, what we think we know and what we actually remember is not what was originally taught. It’s easy to become complacent and revision is a way of filling in blanks or reminding us of things we have forgotten.
This is a course that would suit people with or without affiliate marketing experience.
By signing up you also get access to the Affilorama forums. Here you can ask questions and read the answers posted in reply to those from other students. It’s a mine of useful information and one of the richest you’ll find and the Affilorama staff often drop in to add their opinions and comments.
There’s a lot of free material here to get your teeth into but sooner or later you’ll probably want to change gear and move into more advanced topics. You’ll want to use the sort of tools that the full time affiliate marketers use.
As you might expect (this is a business after all) there is a subscription fee for these other sections of the Affilorama site but they do occasionally offer one dollar trials of the Premium subscription. You won’t know about these unless you’re already signed up as a free member so register now and stay tuned.
