In this day and age, affiliate marketing has become one of the ways in which people can make money. With the internet growing and the lack of affiliate marketers out there, it's a promising career path to anyone but, where to get started?

Hi, my name is Peter, an affiliate marketer and if you are reading this article, you either know what affiliate marketing is and are looking for a way to get started or want to find out what it is about. In either case there's a link further down in this article that will take you to a website where you can find out what it is and also where you can get started with it.

In this article, I'm going to talk about something that is very important for all affiliate marketers to know when starting out.

Although affiliate marketing is very simple in concept, it has many components to it and many details that one needs to know to be able to become a successful affiliate marketer. Without the right knowledge and training, the natural thing that happens is that you see yourself at a dead end, not making any money and in the end either you start over from scratch or you just quit.

Affiliate marketing in itself is not hard nor complicated, knowing the different components and knowing how to bring these different components together is key to bringing about a very successful business as an affiliate marketer.

As you are starting out as an affiliate marketer you have to know that in the beginning stage of your career, you can either get the knowledge right away in the beginning so that you can start building successful online businesses right at the beginning or you can start out now, learn somethings here and there and start building successful online businesses maybe 5 years from now. Now, there are books out there that you can buy that will teach you what affiliate marketing is all about, but as an affiliate marketer myself and this is something that any successful affiliate marketer will tell you is that you are going to need an educational system that will actually lead you by the hand step by step so that you bypass all the loop holes and mistakes that you can make as an affiliate marketer.

I'm a member of The Wealthy Affiliate University. Wealthy Affiliate is an all in one affiliate marketing training online school that is complete in itself. I picked Wealthy Affiliate because it's ranked #1 and also because as I was checking it out, I realized that the people in this program were putting together the best online training program possible.

I'm going to stress this one more time because it is very important, if you start out without guidance you will absolutely get stuck many times getting frustrated, not knowing what to do, wasting a whole lot of money.

I hope this article will help you, for it is the very thing that I would have needed to see in the beginning of my career. I was just lucky that I got introduced to Wealthy Affiliate right away when I got started.

If you join Wealthy Affiliate, here are some pointers you should know first.
