    Great Introduction and Insight for Affiliate Marketing

    I’m getting into affiliate marketing from complete scratch, and have been watching a handful of videos, testimonials, and how-to’s. When you’re absorbing all of this information, remind yourself that you need to take action. And THIS guide provides fundamental groundwork that outlines the progression of your affiliate career. I enjoyed that this author provided examples of free affiliate programs that you can join and goes in-depth with each of them, how to drive traffic to your brand, and how to settle on your niche. I was also satisfied when this author stated that being an affiliate isn’t really a get rich scheme (though you may be lucky enough to skyrocket this field). It’s a lot of work. This book is a great supplement for beginners.
