So what is the best way to start an affiliate marketing business? The answer is pretty simple, join an affiliate marketing training program / platform. The main thing to do is not get suckered into one of these so called guru’s training programs because I guarantee you will spend a fortune and learn next to nothing.
The good news is that there are legitimate affiliate training programs out there if you know where to look. Lucky for you I know which are the legitimate programs and which are bogus.
Which program is best for you really depends on how you want to run your business, with affiliate marketing there is 3 different methods you can use
- Build A Website
- Email Marketing
- Run Paid Adverts
There are other ways but those 3 are by far the best methods, I have used all 3 methods myself and they all work well. I tend to stick with my website these days but everyone has their own personal preference.
I have already written reviews on the best affiliate training programs so I will give you an excerpt from each with a link to the reviews so you can read them in full. Some of the programs are free to join and others are paid but i have included the price of each program in the reviews.
