Affiliate Internet Marketing – Getting Organized

Its Time To Get Organized!

If you’ve decided to embark on the rewarding journey of becoming an affiliate marketer, you will probably feel a rush of excitement as various product and website ideas occupy your thoughts each day. Affiliate internet marketing

While this type of creative inspiration is invaluable, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by not only your own ideas but also by the vast amounts of information you’ll receive. To make the most of any affiliate internet marketing course, it is very important to balance out your formal education with practical application of new concepts learned. The best advice I can offer here is that a little bit of organization can definitely go a long way!

Getting organized with your affiliate internet marketing education may involve some or all of the following tasks:

  • Setting up a daily or weekly routine for both theory and practice
  • Attending webinars or catching up on recordings
  • Tracking your progress
  • Finding suitable affiliate products
  • Creating a schedule of marketing activities to implement
  • Managing various account login details, passwords and affiliate links
  • Business administration tasks

We will explore a few of these tasks in greater below.


Creating a Routine

When you’re starting out, it may be hard to know how much time to allocate to each of the tasks above. My advice would be to set up a work plan anyway and fine tune it as you go. One suggestion you could try is to allocate 50% of your available time to study/education and the other 50% to practical application. For example, if you have 90 minutes to spare each evening after work, you would allocate your time as follows:

– 45 minutes: study/education (eg. webinars, reading course notes, revising)

– 45 minutes: practical (eg. article writing, research, signing up for affiliate programs etc)


Tracking Your Progress

A good internet marketing course should start you off with a comprehensive guide for beginners and if you set up a consistent daily routine, you should be up and running in no time, right? Well, this sounds right in theory but it rarely happens that smoothly. There is a small element of “life” getting in the way which can disrupt your routine and throw you off course if you’re not prepared.

One of the practical ways around this is to keep a blog journal where you can record your progress and schedule future activities. I keep a blog journal where I make notes in four sections:Blog journal

  1. General notes: record activities completed and create to- do lists
  2. Hints & Tips: general tips and shortcuts
  3. Webinar notes: lecture-style notes from webinars you attend
  4. Future study: concepts that you will park for a future date


Managing Accounts & Passwords

Even the most organized internet marketer can become inundated with the number of accounts that you’ll acquire over time. A good way to manage a large number of login details and passwords is to set up an Account Register. This is simply a spreadsheet where you can store your various account details, passwords and related email addresses/websites. It’s also handy to upload this to Google Documents so that you can access it anywhere and if anything happens to your computer, your details won’t be lost.

By implementing some of the ideas mentioned above, you should be well on your way to becoming organized, allowing you to make steady progress on your affiliate internet marketing journey.
