Do you feel a little overwhelmed by all that you need to learn?

Fear not! Affiliate marketing on the Internet isn't rocket science. You don't need an MBA or other degree to succeed in an online business.

If you know how to access the Web, as well as send and receive email, you've already mastered the two activities you'll perform most frequently.

It's also helpful if you have fundamental computer skills including a grasp of basic macros and file management.

Don't worry about knowing HTML (Hypertext Markup Language - the code to write web page) at this, or any other point in the process. Although I strongly recommend that you learn a little HTML later, it's not absolutely necessary for success.

At this point we are only dealing with the things that will help you maneuver around your computer more easily. Building a web site will come later.

• Computer Codes and Macros - A macro is a way to automate a task that you perform repeatedly or on a regular basis.

The following macros or computer codes are common across most Windows platforms and are worth memorizing for the time they can save during your daily tasks.

File Management - The easiest way to save time and keep your sanity is by being organized.

One webmaster I know bookmarks every 'great' site he sees, without organizing his bookmarks into categorized folders. I've waited 5 minutes and longer for him to find just one of those sites amongst the hundreds of others he has stored. None of those sites was worth the wait. The frustration I felt after enduring several of these delays may have colored my perception, however.

My friend wastes valuable time (time = life) every day looking for bookmarks, files and other records essential to his web business.

Do you want to spend you time (life) like that? Wouldn't you rather spend it making money? Or playing with your kids?

If so, learn to establish categories within your email program, bookmarks and file folders containing all documents relevant to your web business.

Some examples of categories are; Accounting, Merchant Partners, Correspondence, JV's and Newsletter.

Top-level categories are then broken down into more specific categories. I personally store all my web pages in folders named for their domains, i.e. Sage-Hearts.com, SuperAffiliateHandbook.com and NetProfitsToday.com. All files belonging to those domains are stored in their appropriate folder.
