Do you have any suggestions?

I figured out I will try influencer marketing and maybe Pinterest ads because my target audience is female but I don't know how good Pinterest is suited for cbd ads.
If so can you recommend me any specific website/webinar/book to learn about marketing on there?

Else I thought about SEO and affiliate marketing because once they are set up they are pretty passive but I struggle to find a good software which is gdpr conform concerning affiliate marketing.
So if you have any recommendations I would greatly appreciate them!

On the GDPR thing... it's more of an issue of collecting data/security, and if you do collect data just keeping it in the EU.

You don't need software to rank websites (This kind of stuff was more valuable pre-peguin(2012), and not sure how you are planning to use it for affiliate marketing(Maybe you are talking about email providers, but most mainstream ones do tout compliance.)... Or maybe things like press release software maybe, but that's been exploited. (The best places I have found things pre-exploitation is in mastermind groups.)

I know you asked about finding marketing material... However, as someone who has ranked lots of websites, moved millions or people, built fairly large email lists, and sold 10's of thousand of products. I believe you are missing a couple things...

I went up and down for a while because I needed to understand myself in order to be more effective.

Here is what I would ask and tell you....

Sooo... My first question is why? Why now? Are you feeling the pressure of life, and so it's causing you to try something?

I ask this because I was there once... no conviction, just trying to make a quick buck, and get on to the vacation with a new jet and a bunch of ladies.... a bunch! :)

At your age it's SUPER easy... "to overestimate what you can do in a year and underestimate what you can do in a decade" Put everything into your vision a decade from now... and you may well get your break a lot sooner.

People have a weird sense of believing in things if you do... So the moment you become fly by night... people can sense it.

Have conviction, provide value, be patient, and consistent over time.

"A year from now you will have wished you would have started today", and before you give up always realize most people give up right before they are about to succeed. Look up the three feet from gold story.

Here is a plan for you...

Instead of starting with a product then learning to market... start with who you are, and creating your skill set. Everything else will bleed through from there...

Once you know who your are.(Meyers Briggs Test) At the end of the day write down the things you did that day when you felt time flying by. This will give you insight on what gets you in flow. Now that you have a clue of what makes you tick. It's time to get good at something...

So lets say you become skilled in SEO(Rank Something)... Now you have something of value...

From your username I gather you are probably late teens/early 20's... So your actual skill is probably lacking due to inexperience.

Here is you hack...

Now that you have built a skill find an industry expert... Somebody with 20 years in an industry, create a product solving their problems, and then use their trust and authority to gain market traction. This will shave off years and propel you forward faster.

Hello Nick,

Thank you for taking the time to respond to my question.
I think you understood me a bit wrong. I am not looking for a software which ranks my website up. I'm looking for an affiliate software for shopify or any other shopsystem which is managing my affiliate for me like goaffpro for example.

Why am I doing it?

Certainly not because I want to party with a lot of girls in a jet because I reduced my alcohol consumption to literally zero. I do it because I have a dream. I want to help my parents to persure their dreams. We aren't poor but we have to save a lot my parents aren't rich at all and I have the fear that once they have to retire they will impoverish. I want to do it because I don't want my parents to have to buy a rusty 10 year old car which has to be repaired every 6 months because it's so old. I don't want my dad to work a construction job until he's retired because he lost his job due to the corona crisis. I don't want my children to miss out on anything just because my boss is not giving me a payraise or time off. These are my motivations and if you still think I'm not convicted I don't care I will pursue my plan even if everyone says my product is shit even if I it doesn't suceed I will work and be an enterpreneur until my family can live without thinking about the bills at the end of the month or when we can repair the air conditon in the car because it's breaking down all of the time.

Concerning the skillset thing I think you have a very good point but I just want to pursue my product, because it will sell. I provide value and my customers just have to realise that. Learning a skill is pretty useful and you are right probably a better idea but I have invested to much to quit now so I will learn my skills on the go.

Ahh ok... it was kind of vague so I wasn't sure.

As far as your conviction... that's on you amigo. I've dealt with enough people that results are what matters...

On your reasons though... Fantastic... You see it wasn't until I put reason's over goals that I began to perform. My reasons were somewhat similar to yours.

Just so you know... The only goal of commenting is to help add some light to your path, not insult.

If you believe in your product you should definitely pursue it...

However, you will have a major uphill path telling your customers to like something.

I provide value and my customers just have to realise that.

It is the wrong polarity. You want them to attract to you... They might not need your sand in the desert...

Learning a skill is pretty useful and you are right probably a better idea but I have invested to much to quit now so I will learn my skills on the go.

Nothing wrong with taking action and learning as you go... Just always weigh your opportunity cost. Skills have utility, and their is a lot of satisfaction with the right skills for creating leverage/impact.

Being valuable to already successful experts in a field was the main point of what I saying in the "Hack portion"... if you can add value to the right people... you can leverage their authority plus your skills to lift you up faster. This gets you passed the years of becoming an expert and gives you authority you wouldn't otherwise have to sell into their vertical...

I get that the cancer corellary (I'm not native english and I didn't find the word but I hope you know what I mean), but you also have to get the word out for your cure to cancer. If it's just sitting in your shelf and nobody knows about it it won't help anybody and no one will buy it.

And in fact I am kind of useful to an already sucessful person my mentor who is an enterpreneur himself and founded a company with me.

They market through Snapchat but never mind.
But f. E. If you have top notch cocaine/crack whatever and your trying to sell it you also have to get the mouth out nobody will ask you if they don't know you have it.

Then get out there, who uses these products? Athletes would be a good start.
