I've been doing online marketing since 2008. But I didn't start out doing any affiliate anything--and affiliate marketing is not my main thing; it's what I'm slowly building to and have had very, very, moderate success. What I've had great success with is using internet marketing for my main (service) business.
Affiliate marketing is just a subset of internet marketing----keeping this in mind, I can personally vouch for what zoe.j.summers has warned you about. And, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has suffered from it.
Following every new shiny object will take away your focus from anything you market, whether it's something you love or something that you're just doing because you think it's what will bring you money even if you don't care for it.
