Book Description

This book won't make you rich quickly. Being an avid fishing fan, the author is a big believer in distributing fishing tackle and tips (knowledge), not the fish itself. Therefore, what this book will do is walk you through the key affiliate marketing notions, answering the most important questions, and equipping you with the information you need in order to chart your own road map for affiliate success. In a Q&A format the book answers a total of 60 questions, providing you with solid affiliate marketing knowledge.

"I wish this book had existed in early 1999 when I got started with affiliate marketing. In one word, its simply excellent! Easy-to-read and full of very practical advice, I'm pleased to report that it's the real deal and not hype."
-Mike Allen, Shopping-Bargains® Founder & Chief Executive Shopper, 2009 Affiliate of the Year (Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Awards)

"Geno Prussakov's new book, the Quick Start Guide to Affiliate Marketing answers the most important questions newcomers to the industry have about the topic in a well-organized, clear and concise fashion. Geno also includes a score of valuable tips based on his years of experience as an ethical and very successful marketer. I highly recommend this short, yet comprehensive guide to anyone who wants to start an affiliate business the 'right way'. Get it, print it out and use it as a reference guide for years to come."

If you're starting out in affiliate marketing, reading Prussakov's Quick Start Guide to Affiliate Marketing can help you avoid common problems that many other affiliates have learned the hard way."

It is not a get-rich-quick guide. There are no shortcuts in our business unless 1) you get incredibly lucky or 2) you fall in with a shady group of scammers. Neither are good for long-term success (and one may even get you in trouble). Working in the Affiliate Marketing industry is said to be more of a marathon than a sprint - and this guide will show beginners how to take those first steps.

Divided into three sections, the narrative begins by describing the basic ideas of what it means to work in the affiliate marketing industry. The second section adds enough in-depth information to actually begin and maintain ones own marketing website. The final section takes those ideas and embellishes them with more advanced tenets of the industry to take that "working site" and help the new affiliate marketer move it to the next level.

So, what are my credentials for offering this review? I have been working in affiliate marketing for well over a dozen years, attend major conferences and have been published in a major industry magazine. I wish a guide such as this had been available when I was getting started (late in the last millennium). I learned much of what Geno presents here by the old-fashioned method of trial and error, which, of course, takes a lot longer.

My intro to this review mentions "luck." It is well known that the harder one works the luckier they seem to be. With that cliche aside, I can say that this book is certainly worth the little it costs and the time it takes to read. You will gain an understanding about what it really takes to get started in the world of online marketing. Where you go from there is up to you...

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart. Simple. Quick Read. August 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love that the book is written in this "FAQ Style" or "Q&A Style".

The Answers to these 60 Questions are very succinct, helpful and to-the-point. This efficiency allows for a very quick read.

The 60 questions are organized in 3 main categories, "Basics", "Day to Day Operations" and "Advanced Topics".

As Geno writes in the introduction: if you simply spend time to read and understand 20 questions a day, you'll have a firm grasp on an overall understanding of Affiliate Marketing in just 3 days.

This is a great guide for beginners. Well done.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Straight Forward "What Is" Q&A To Affiliate Marketing February 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a simple "What Is" guide to affiliate marketing, Prussakov's "Quick Start Guide to Affiliate Marketing", is a good place to start. If you're looking for a "How To" guide, then look elsewhere. The author makes no promises of providing that type of content in this book, however I imagine someone starting out in affiliate marketing would be hungrier for more content about getting started rather than an educational overview of the subject. Well written, simple, and straight forward. "Quick Start Guide to Affiliate Marketing" isn't quite the fulfilling read you'll want it to be. It's more like taking your vitamins before breakfast.

In the space of 60 questions, Geno Prussakov provides a clear, experienced look at affiliate marketing. Every affiliate marketer should be asking these questions - but few do. It would take years of experience to find or learn the answers, but Geno's extensive experience shines as he explains.

This book is not a simple step-by-step guide to affiliate marketing, but is more of an overview of the entire process and industry. Packed with hard-to-find information that every successful affiliate marketer should know, it provides many valuable insights.

While some questions may seem basic at first glance, such as "What affiliate networks are available?" even experts can learn from the answers provided (in this case, a long list of global networks). Geno also explains many seldom-taught techniques that successful affiliates use on a daily basis, such as calculating future affiliate earnings from a specific network.

In my opinion, this book is an exceptional value. While I seldom provide product endorsements, in this case I have no hesitation recommending Geno's Quick Start Guide to Affiliate Marketing.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's Done it Again! August 17, 2013
By cammy
Format:Kindle Edition
Evgenii 'Geno' Prussakov has been clarifying basic issues surrounding the Affiliate Marketing Industry since before he wrote 'A Practical Guide to Affiliate Marketing: Quick Reference for Affiliate Managers & Merchants' that gave Merchants and Managers a better understanding of how all the parts work together, and how to more successfully manage an affiliate program.

This is a counterpart to that, giving affiliates a better and more honest understanding of their part in the equation. Forget the late night infomercials, and promises of easy riches. This book will show you everything that you need to know to start off right and work toward your goals - partly by setting realistic goals and expectations. Peppered with charts, information tables for real world reference and easy to read and understand chapters that give you a real look of how it all works for the Publisher or Affiliate. Information about the various networks, how to chart your course, how to decide on what programs are right for you, answers to all the common questions and many that might never occur to a new affiliate. In the competitive field of affiliate marketing that can make you feel like you're trying to navigate through a maze blindfolded, this book can be your headlights and GPS.

Geno's years in the industry and careful analysis of how things work in the industry makes this a starting affiliate's best choice to learn it right and avoid costly mistakes. I wish I'd had this book when I started in 2002.
