Q: I am excited about launching my first affiliate site however am concerned about the costs involved in building my database. I understand that co-reg partners may assist in reducing the costs but am still worried that my outgoings will end up being more than my incomings during the first few months.
A: Start small. It’s not really rational to think affiliate marketing is different from any other business.
You can’t just jump in and have a big, successful business in affiliate marketing.
You have to be patient and put in time to learn and grow.
I would suggest against laying out a lot of money to get started, especially if you don’t have that money to lose, because you probably will lose it if you race into things without an understanding of how it all works.
Focus on building your site organically, and spend more time than money until the point where your time is worth more than your money.
Also, it’s essential that you test everything to determine what’s working the best. Otherwise, you could be wasting vital time and resources.
