    Question Frustrated already with newbie forums
    I just joined ABW and have spent 30 minutes reading short and useless posts and threads on the newbie platform. Seems newbies get a few responses and then nothing... perhaps because they ask non specific questions.. So, can anyone tell me where to go to get threads of useful intelligence in beginning affiliate businesses? I have learned to target one niche intensely, deliver great value to my visitors in an effort to create lasting relationships, and not to expect meaningful monetization for a year or longer.. I have bought Ros Gardner's Super Affiliate Handbook's latest edition that I find helpful, and an informative video and manual series by easy kits by a man whose name is not readily available but very informative. Can I get additional help here on ABW, and if so what is the best route to take? Thank you, QUELME

    A whole 30 minutes and you haven't found the secrets?

    Perhaps ask specific questions.

    Perhaps read more...

    your mind right now?

    The search function is your friend.

    A forum is not like a 'How to' book neatly organized in chapters to be read sequentially. You will need to ask or search for specific questions. So be patient, search first, ask second, and don't be limited abw. Google your questions too. Many successful affiliates have their own blog that have great content too.

    In 30 minutes you may have elicited a few snippets from the posts, in 30 days you will be a whole lot wiser and in 30 months of asking and contributing you should be fairly well established in AM.

    Try sorting by views in the sub forums and read those with high numbers.

    The initial post just might have been meant for a name drop to
    the latest edition of that great super affiliate book.

    I wonder if Quelme will be back?

    I was around last night when Quelme wondered if "anyone [could] tell [him/her] where to go to get threads of useful intelligence in beginning affiliate businesses?"
    I asked what his major question was; I was trying to start a conversation.
    At the same time, Rematt & Gary were in the sub forum: they are very
    intelligent and welcoming to newbies and would have joined a conversation
    had Quelme really initiated one. I was wondering why Quelme didn't make
    another post in the sub forum? Could it be he wanted to highlight the intelligence of a book while somewhat slighting the forum?

    To me, just another affiliate who is frustrated they have spent money on books/videos and still can't find the step-by-step, hand holding, instant rewards/gratification to what they consider "work"...
