    Starting First Affiliate/blog - Two Big Questions
    Hi, I'll try to be concise.

    Background
    I made a few designs for Zazzle and I realized I could make money selling other people's designs too. I've started a few blogs, so I decided to start a blog about t-shirts I like (not built yet). I've narrowed my niche. I plan on doing two or three posts a day, at least one focusing on a specific t-shirt or two. I'd like to be able to pick shirts from a variety of vendors if that's possible and smart and to show a picture of it on my blog. I'm open to having one or more separate Pages where people can go and look at other t-shirts.

    Question One
    Do I register for more than one network? Do I use both CJ and Shareasale?
    Do I also join affiliate programs directly through retailer?

    Question Two
    I want to sell 5 to 7 shirts a day at first. I plan on sharing my posts with Facebook and Twitter (no friends or followers for this yet) and maybe a few other social networks. I'll also be participating in a few forums and such.
    Will I meet my goal? What do I really need to do to meet this goal?

    Thanks for taking the time to read such a long post

    hey Katie,

    Do I register for more than one network? Do I use both CJ and Shareasale?
    The more networks you join, the more choices you have. If a merchant is own both networks, join only one. Don't join both.
    Do I also join affiliate programs directly through retailer?
    If you're talking about internal programs, yes you can join those, but ask around before you join, some internal programs can be shady.

    Will I meet my goal? What do I really need to do to meet this goal?
    Sounds ambitious for someone starting out. Nothing wrong with that though. You have to remember, you're competing with a gazillion other folks and it takes time.

    Good luck!
