One of the best things about online marketing is the ability to measure the effectiveness of your efforts. Unlike TV, newspaper or radio campaigns, you can literally track anything online – where the visitors came from, what they clicked on, what device they used to connect, what type of internet connection they used, what landing page or product converted them … you name it.
Do I have what it takes to succeed in affiliate marketing? That’s one of the questions I see people asking over and over. So, is there a specific set of skills that are required in order to make it?

What is Affiliate Marketing actually and how does it work?
Affiliate Marketing is one of the easiest ways of making money online, that’s why it is more and more popular every day. I know it can be hard to understand for people who are new to the internet business in general, so let me use an example from real life, that we all are familiar with.
My real name is Matej, matuloo is just a nickname I started to use many years ago when I registered on the first internet forum. That was back in the year 1998, that’s when I started to look for ways to make money on the internet. I discovered the world of affiliate marketing and the rest is history. If we do the math, I’m close to reaching 20 years of being an affiliate marketer. You can imagine I went through a lot things during that time, I had awesome years, I had not-so-awesome years and I had years that flat out sucked 🙂
