    Have you looked on Udemy? I believe they have a big sale going on now too.

    If you don't want to spend any money in the learning phase, you can find a lot of free resources on the internet, Youtube channels, and blogs.
    Otherwise, there is some quality program out there that provide quality product and quality courses to help you build a sustainable online business.

    Udemy if you want to pay, otherwise just watch youtube videos. There are tons of free videos on youtube describing affiliate marketing to beginners.

    Affiliate Marketing is such a broad term. What area do you want to focus on? Is it building a site from scratch creating content and getting ranked in the search engines? Is it paid traffic (Pay per click advertising) Find out what area you want to focus on and find training on it or find a mentor. It will cut down the learning curve.

    I totally agree,

    Affiliate marketing is a broad term.

    Do you want to build a list--learn how to put up your first blog--or learn how to market in sites like instagram.

    One place you may want to try is your local library--I know mine has a ton of books on facebook marketing--and youube marketing, and podcasting.

    Hope this Helps!

    You can literally search on Google or Youtube, "How to start an affiliate marketing business from scratch."

    The more free content you watch, you'll notice that people will tell you the similar, if not the same, basic things which are:

    Starting a website/Youtube channel
    Get traffic from either blog posts, videos, paid ads, etc.
    Promote affiliate products to your visitors/viewers
    Get them on your email list
    Send promotional emails

    It's a lot of upfront work in terms of building up your content and other assets and it'll pay off in the backend. Then again, that's how it's like with starting any kind of business.

    I think udemy is the best. There are so many courses you can find about affialiate marketing. And their price also not so high. So try it. I think you can be a better marketer.

    I agree with this. If you find "gurus" online, and you will, selling their affiliate marketing courses for 3 or 4 figures, don't bother. They teach you the same things you can find in a $10 Udemy course. but if it comes with some coaching benefit, then it might be worth it.

    The number one thing to know when it comes to affiliate marketing is as much as people say its easy it will take time. so be consistent and never stop but I would really recommend having a mentor to guide you and speed up that process. having a mentor is honestly the best way to learn and learn fast as a beginner when I started I was lost and over the years I've tried lots of programs and I can honestly proudly tell you that its because of my mentor that I got so far and earn 5k+ each month. Send me a message back and ill arrange to personally send you something that will benefit you greatly.

    You can just google it and start reading blogs to learn the basics.

    You can also go to Clickbank and look for affiliate products with high "gravity", then look at the "affiliate resources" of bestselling products.

    You can learn a lot about affiliate marketing and how to get sales there, because the vendors will provide you with effective tools and tips on how to sell their products for them.

    I've been promoting affiliate / CPA offers for over 19 years. However, I do things differently than most.

    I heavily promote PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers. This is because there is no credit card / purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher compared to offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get, or save money benefit to them, as they have overall worked the best. They also tend to have the greatest mass appeal (will be of interest to a large general audience), so the potential exists to produce high volume and they are fairly easy to cross-promote on the back-end.

    Some of the verticals (niches) I have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, loans, debt, credit, mortgage, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    The bulk of the PPL offers that I promote pay $15-$40 per lead, but I also promote offers that pay more and less. You don't want to get too caught up on what an offer pays because how well it converts is just as important. For example, if you have an offer that pays $9, but if it converts at 2X or more of a $20 offer, then it will perform about the same or possibly better. At the same time, if you have an offer that pays $90 and it converts poorly, it may not even be worth promoting.

    I have also done just as good with dating website sign-ups and pretty good with free trial + S/H offers. I also promote a very limited number of offers that are straight sales. For them, mass appeal is still the number one thing I look for and I also look for one of the following...

    1) The product is new and/or novel-unique and you can't purchase it locally or even something similar. I don't waste my time with it once something similar shows up in Walmart.

    2) The buyer can truly get what is being offered at a decent discount.

    3) Solves a house is on fire type problem.

    However, I mainly promote non-PPL offers on the backend.

    Bottom line, it's far easier to get someone fill out a short form than to get them to pull out their credit card and make a purchase. So why struggle with trying to sell this or that, when you can provide free information that users want/need and get paid well doing it.

    Something to think about.
