Affiliate Marketing eBooks: Part II - Which One to Buy?

So you are ready to give affiliate marketing (or any type of money making program) a shot! So you type in a few good keywords into Google like "Make money from home" or "Get Rich Quick" and you get eBooks and programs being thrown at you at all directions! Again, I have read my share of internet eBooks (especially on this topic) and most are really quite similar. At this point, you need to step back and figure out what YOU need in a program:

1) Are you fairly internet savvy or did you just figure out how to turn on a computer yesterday?

2) Do you just want the details on what to do or do you want to know why you are doing it?

3) Are you looking for all the details up front, or would you prefer them in small doses?

4) Are you dedicated to making this work or are you looking for a quick way to make some money?

Believe it or not, but there is an eBook or program for any of the cases listed above. Some programs really walk you through it providing excellent examples and really defining the basics. Other eBooks throw everything at your up front and let you figure it out yourself. Both have their pluses and minuses, but it is the reader than needs to choose which is best for them. The best way to learn which eBook is right for you is to read reviews on products themselves. You will probably find that a few eBooks really stand out (TheRichJerk or AffiliateCashVault, for example). These are popular because they have been around awhile and have provided good results. This doesn't mean that newer eBooks are not better, just not as easy to find reviews. I still like the LifeEmpowered System a lot (for its ease of use and great support). BecomeHated is a newbie which is great for the technical savvy user looking for tons of information and fast! But whatever you choose, make sure it is right for you...
