Before we get started I think it’s important to recap the reasons why you should start affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is the fastest and easiest way to make a passive income each and every month. Whether you want to make a few hundred extra bucks part-time or build a million dollar online empire full-time this business model will allow you the opportunity to do it.

You get to work from the comfort and convenience of your own home or anywhere that you have an internet connection.

The affiliate marketing game is still a level playing field which means that a beginner can directly compete with, and often out-perform, large companies

It takes very little up-front money to start affiliate marketing which removes the most common barriers of entry associated with starting your own business (i.e brick and mortar costs)

The market has a very bright future. Internet marketing is expected to grow into $7 billion dollars per year in the next five years

LESSON # 1: Planning Your Strategy And Setting Up Proper Systems To Help You Make Money As Quickly As Possible:

What’s The Difference Between Goals and Systems?

If you’re a coach, your goal is to win a championship. Your system is what your team does at practice each day.

If you’re a writer, your goal is to write a book. Your system is the writing schedule that you follow each week.

If you’re a runner, your goal is to run a marathon. Your system is your training schedule for the month.

If you’re an entrepreneur, your goal is to build a million dollar business. Your system is your sales and marketing process.

Now for the really interesting question: If you completely ignored your goals and focused only on your system, would you still get results?*

The truth of the matter is that working on the internet is unlike any other job in the world. Working online exposes you to more distractions than any other line of work. You likely waste too much time on the internet now and that temptation and habit will always be a simple click away.

That’s why it’s imperative to implement systems. Systems will give you a road map of what you need to accomplish on a daily basis to keep you on track.

If you don’t have systems in place you’ll end up wasting valuable work time surfing the web instead. I see it happen all of the time. Internet marketing requires discipline to make sure you get your work done first each day before falling back into your site surfing routine. Separate your work time from your play time online.

The Clock Is Always Ticking:

Unless you’re already wealthy you probably have only a limited amount of time to figure affiliate marketing out before you run out of cash, resources, and patience.

The easiest way to shorten the learning curve and accelerate your rate of success is to set up your systems, work toward your daily target, set ruthless deadlines, work fast, and stay on track until you get there.

How To Use Systems And The Feedback Loop

A feedback loop monitors the systems you set up using feedback that can be either positive or negative.

A system is a set of distinct parts that act together to form a more complex thing. In this context it would be your daily plan to get your online business running and then profitable. The ultimate goal of your system is to make $XXXX (what you’re aiming for) amount of money per month as an affiliate marketer.

Feedback loops give you an idea of whether or not your plan is working or not. A positive feedback loop means that your plan is functioning well and on track. A negative feedback loop means that there are problems in your system that need to be corrected.

Please note: If this feedback loop information is confusing to you please don’t worry. I’ll tie it all together for you at the end of the week. I promise.
