This very low cost course was created by Marian Krajcovic, a well known and respected creator of Internet Marketing training. Surprisingly, this is not a video course but a good old fashioned 50 page ebook you can read in one sitting and refer to again and again in the future. The material is aimed at those who are just getting started with online marketing and are not sure what they are getting into.
He starts out with a good explanation of affiliate marketing and adds a needed dose of reality by debunking the often repeated claims of making lots of money with practically no effort. He makes it clear that real work will be required to get started before you see any meaningful amounts of money.
Keep in mind that this is not one of those “here’s how this shortcut is done” training courses but it a good look at all of the factors you must consider when starting your business.
