Free Affiliate Marketing Training

When people get to the point where they would like to learn how to market on the Internet they already have a business they want to promote, or they just want to get on the internet to learn how to earn some money. Those who do not have a business soon learn about affiliate marketing and the gurus pounce on them to buy a get-rich-quick scheme that does not work. Some fall for these schemes but others have little or no money and want free affiliate marketing training.

It matters not whether you have a business or not. Either way you are in business.

Many of the rules that apply to a storefront business apply to an affiliate marketing business. You need to build a quality business that attracts customers and you need those customers to drop into your business more than once.

I know of a man who during the Great Depression went to the local newspaper and made a deal to gain a commission on all advertising that he sold. The newspaper always agreed despite the fact they had their own sales people. He went around town and talked to business owners. He told them that he would like to build up their customer base if the owner agreed to pay him a percentage of increased sales.

Owners usually agreed to do this. So he first talked to the customers of a business and asked what they liked and disliked about it. They would say, “He never has what I need.” “He always over charges.” The clerks are rude and unaccommodating.” “The store is always in clutter. You can’t walk down the aisles without tripping over something.”

So actions were taken to get things in order at the business. The owner was then told to run a full-page add saying that his customers could expect more, that stocks were increased, shopping was made easier, and that folks would be treated kindly. Our traveling friend then left instructions for the future and the business paid him for increased sales for a contracted period and the newspaper continued to pay him for advertising sold according to their contact.

So what has this to do with free affiliate marketing training. Nothing at all. I’m trying to convey the idea that if you become an affiliate marketer that you will be starting a business and if you take short cuts, not providing what your market wants, and not being able to find customers, you will fail as most affiliate marketers do. That is the reality of the situation.

You should not ask about where to get free affiliate marketing training but where can I get the best training? Who can help me to find a niche market, create my first website and teach me how to drive traffic to that site. You also will want to associate with active Internet marketers. So, as you seek training be willing to pay a reasonable fee just like you would for a college course, perhaps several hundred dollars for a years training which is much less than a regular college course.

The point is that you need special training from a community of active marketers to become an affiliate marketer or to bring your current business online effectively. Always thing of the best possible service and the best possible products. Don’t represent any company as an affiliate without making sure that the products and service are of the highest quality.

And, for goodness sake, stay away from the gurus and their get-rich-quick schemes. You’ll be glad you did and you will save a lot of money because these guys are very good at getting you with bate and switch programs. Don't be hasty. Think before you leap.

Good luck as you bone up for your new business online.
