Affiliate Marketing is an acquired skill.
Do not be fooled by some system seller showing you screenshots of large deposits into their affiliate accounts. They promise to show you how to do the same thing for 47 bucks. Give me a break here folks, just think about that, if you had a method to earn large one day commissions, would you sell it? Not on your life.
Affiliate Marketing is a proven way to earn commissions, and often, recurring commissions that can run for several months or even several years.
Most first time affiliate marketers make the mistake of attempting to much with to little. Here at Internet Visions Defined we strongly advise on focusing on a few products that you can become an expert on. It is always good to start with products that you are very familiar with.
Keep in mind that you are the middleman in a chain of value, so you have to bring something credible to the table. This is done by creating content that appeals to your target niche.
