Learn Affiliate Marketing - How to Start an Online Business

Jul 11th 2010 at 4:53 AM

You are new to the world of Affiliate Marketing, and you have read and heard about how easy it is to make money online from doing this, but you are confused by all of the conflicting information so you don't know where to start. Believe me, I know exactly what you're going through and this is the reason why this article is especially written for you.

What you will get from reading this article is information about the building blocks of starting your own online business. In my opinion, the websites that I recommend that you join here are essential to your long term success. My first recommendation to you is an obvious one that you probably have already, which is your current bank account.

You will eventually want to change your current account to a full blown business account, but as you are just starting out you're bog standard everyday account will do you just fine. Three important points for you to remember here is.

1) You must have an online bank account

2) Check your bank account regularly

3) Transfer your profits to another account

Practically every major bank in the world has it's own website so signing up for an online account will be a breeze.It should be second nature for you by now to check your account at least twice a week, I can't stress enough to you how important it is that you do this, because PayPal which is another website that l recommend that you join has been known to freeze accounts of a suspicious nature.

This means that any profits that you make online can be held by PayPal for up to six months (at the time of me writing this article) I'm not 100% sure of this point but it does not matter, The important thing for you to remember is to never leave any money in a bank account that allows others to withdraw funds without your consent. You should ideally transfer all profits that you make online straight into an account where nobody can gain access, unless you allow them to do so.

Why You Need A Google Account

I wish that I had known about the free online products and services for helping people such as yourself that Google offers a whole lot sooner than I did, because it would have saved me a lot of unnecessary heartache,You can save yourself from this problem by signing up for your account as quickly as possible. Make sure that you choose a strong password for your Google account (a mixture of letters and numbers is your best option)

Once you have your account username and password set up, use it to sign up for Google's other services. Another thing that you should do is go to Robo and download their excellent security password saving software tool. I know that you can also store you're personal details on the Google or Firefox web browsers, but I strongly recommend that you don't do this, just one more final point about your usernames and passwords, try not to have to many different one's.

Danger Of Too Many Usernames And Passwords

What I have found out in doing Affiliate Marketing over the years is that having numerous user names and passwords is unnecessary and trouble some. You will find it a lot easier if you sign up to whatever product or services that you are interested in with the same detail's. Obviously use your own discretion when doing this, for instance I would not advise using the same password for your Twitter account and online bank account, because you can clearly see that your bank account has more importance.

There is plenty of information that you can access online about learning Affiliate Marketing, some of it good and a lot of it BAD. My final recommendation to you is all about getting the BEST information for you're needs. You can get it by simply signing up to I love this website because it has a very active help forum, and a great set of introductory Affiliate Marketing Lessons that will help you get started on the right track.
