  1. James, what a great way article to simplify how to start blogging! I’m new to affiliate marketing and I’ve been starting to blog myself. This article would have been nice to come across when I first began my journey. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to reading your future posts.

    1. Hey Lauren, thanks for leave a great comment. Who would have known your experience. We all start our online journey not knowing what we don’t know, and all in different boats of knowledge. I bet it was not crowded onboard. It was only after I jumped overboard into the sea of knowledge that I picked up this wisdom 🙂 That said, consider joining my newsletter and feel free to continue the journey with me into the future. Just remember on this journey you must never stop learning.

  2. James, as usual, a really great blog. I wish I had these steps when I first started looking to start affiliate marketing. There’s so much rubbish out on the Internet it’s hard to find a good clear definitive list or at least 80% of what to do. Thank you for this. I shall be referring to it again and again, thank you so much, Atif

    1. Atif, just remember I’m in the Digital Information Business.
      I help people with information (the List Manifesto) does that.
      The List Manifesto is knowledge. It gives value to my audience
      which by the way come to me, “hint” but I gave it away for FREE.
      I could have put a price on it. But. . .

      When people see the value, they say this guy gives away so much value,
      I need to see what he offers for cash.

      Does that make sense?
