Examine Your Situation

Are you in need of some extra cash?

Are you patient and willing to work more now to receive a higher payoff later?

Know What You’re Getting Into
Starting an affiliate marketing business is going to take time and effort.
You are going to have to conduct a lot of research.
You need to invest the money you make back into the business.
It may be three to five years before you start seeing “real” payouts.

Unless you invest a lot of money right away, you won’t make huge returns right away.
That means it will take time.
For a while, you will be working a lot more with little reward.

Expect setbacks and deal with them accordingly, don’t let them stop you!
