I saw this come up as a comparison yesterday. In my understanding this is the type of stuff that we get mistaken when first starting on the journey in affiliate marketing hoping to “get in where we fit in.” I definitely ran into some confusion early on when I heard about launch jacking and how some individuals were able to create 5-figure incomes in only a few day’s time because they were using Clickbank. Indeed I was naive and came to realize that it wasn’t the medium it was the greater strategy they had understood that allowed them to find success.
Where to Start
Disclaimer: There are no shortcuts. There is however a way that is better for you than it might be for me. There is a period of finding your niche, one that interests and captivates you preferably, enough that you will spend time searching for an opening that you can later exploit. One of the biggest advantages SEO Affiliate Domination has over Wealthy Affiliate is that it really speeds you up and introduces some big ideas in terms of opportunities and approaches to SEO and blogging that take Wealth Affiliate weeks of courses to get to. There are ways to position yourself strategically for just about any major US Holiday for instance. It’s these type of possibilities that really had me excited and willing to dig deep into the how-to once I understood the bigger picture.
The Bigger Picture
Realize that regardless of who you go with initially, it’s not going to really matter in the long-run. What does matter is that you just start. You will only slow yourself down trying to be perfect before you know what the best route really is. In just about everything we begin with the starter kit and need to upgrade as our preferences and skills adapt to our advantages and disadvantages. I for one absolutely love writing shorter articles and building stories that can be interchanged. This comes largely from one of my favorite blogs I encounter long ago where each article led to another and another and another as my tabs filled so did my desire to consume. At some point of following the blogger I finally bought his ebook and I was hooked. We all need some destination to aim at, I knew that my content could evoke the same feeling for you that I had back when I was first introduced.
There is a ton to learn, the comparisons alone are the mark of a novice and not that you can’t make them. It just doesn’t make sense to ask the question. We all know that saying there are no dumb questions. That’s not entirely true, sorry. There are intelligent questions that help beginners get to the root of what they want to know. There is knowledge to be gained before you can really get to the answers you need. But until you know, you don’t have any basis as which to ask good questions.
- Clickbank is for digital products – It’s a place to go and find items to promote.
- Wealthy Affiliate is an educator – They provide community and lessons that teach you the basics of getting started
- SEO Affiliate Domination is a course – They teach all about long-tail keywords and how to capture traffic in a way that allows you to pinpoint what is working and what’s not.
If you haven’t gotten started because you can’t decide, read this and get started finally.
If you don’t have any money right now, then I totally understand. This, like so many other games, is really about putting in time and effort first. Although I started with SEO Affiliate Domination, you could start with Wealthy Affiliate and scrounge up $19 for the first 30 days as a Premium Member. I’ve been there before so I know what it’s like to be financially inadequate. Never be ashamed of going broke trying to find a better way, just make a decision and get started. SEO Affiliate Domination is $500 but I was able to learn a ton and it still seems to be a faster pace course (quicker route to ROI) than Wealthy Affiliate.
