    Lazy Newbies
    Why do these lazy newbies keep sending me emails about "Give me tips how to earn from CJ" I just received this email, and I have received atleast 40 emails about this before.
    Subject: Hello
    Message: On many forums i have read that You are the 1st who have good success in CJ publisher program i have start CJ last night, I want to know that tips and trick for this i make money very fast like through www.****.com (his own website name)
    This person mentioned "very fast", Such lazy newbie affiliates don't even know how to market a product and they want to make money very fast, i think its actually very difficult to make money fast from affiliate marketing.
    When I was newbie I never emailed a single affiliate marketer, instead I read 100s of discussions on ABW and other forums.

    Do you people receive such emails?

    Marrying it isn't bad while you're sitting around waiting to inherit it. ;-)

    Some "experienced" affiliates are pretty lazy too...

    When I was a newbie I found out about affiliate marketing one day and quit my job the next day... and started an affiliate network.

    I have to remember to keep telling myself that those emails are why the delete key was installed on my keyboard.

    I used to get emails from people asking me to teach them to make a web site. I had a polite, boilerplate refusal email which I sent in reply.

    Twice I've been asked by people I know to help them make a web site so they can get started with AM. I told them both that before I'd help them they had to learn HTML and figure out what they wanted to sell and why. I told them that by learning HTML on their own they'd be proving to me that it was worth my time to teach them AM. Never heard a peep from either of them about it again.

    Noobs don't see the work we put into our sites, they only see that we're successful at it. They think it's easy money.

    Oh it IS easy money! LOL - AFTER all the work has gone into it and we've attracted the visitors ... it all takes care of itself other than link changes, watching tracking & conversions like a hawk and generally going crazy wondering if we're gonna get paid. Still, I love the idea of making money while I sleep ... no greater reward for the work put in up front.
    Peace,

    I'm in my second year of Affiliate Marketing and still consider myself a newbie. I would never write to another member like that! I learn something everyday by reading this forum and researching. It is very hard sometimes to explain to people what I do, b/c it "sounds" much easier than it is, but that's only b/c I explain it to sound that way, so they understand. Does that make sense? LOL

    Nabeelk, you should make your own carlton sheets type of program for making $ at cj, and hold seminars for huge registration fees, and sell books & tapes & stuff.
