One thing awesome about affiliate marketing is that it is independent of age and i used to be a disbeliever as well till i got my own hands dirty so to speak ;)
I'm not a senior but sometimes feel like it :)
A tip from my 1yr experience doing this.
It will be tempting to promote "flash in the pan" products and there are a ton of them online that promise and don't deliver.
This is what i do.
I weed out these products since a lot of people will create a lot of hype on them and see what's not good about them.SCENARIO A: Promoting Crappy Products WITHOUT Promoting Them
If the product is totally full of cr** i siphon the traffic i.e., redirect it to something i believe in.
So for example if you find a product "Make Money In 5 Seconds" you can target BUYER keywords that people are looking for.
Examples for buyer keywords are PRODUCT NAME review, PRODUCT NAME reviews, PRODUCT NAME bonus, PRODUCT NAME discount, PRODUCT NAME scam.
You then them why you think the product is not worth their time in your review and recommend WHY before redirecting that traffic to something worth their while like affilorama ;)
Ofcourse you have to be honest about this and since there is a demand for such rubbish you're actually doing others a service to help them NOT waste their money. SCENARIO B: Promoting OK Products With Flaws
Sometimes you'll find a product that's "ok" and where you learn a thing or two but see weaknesses in the product.
For this you can create a bonus that patches up the product's weak points.
So if a product does not offer a forum or enough support (and you'll be surprised how many of them don't) you could offer skype or email support as a bonus for example.
Hope that helps a bit.
You can have a field day with scenario A. God knows the demand is there lol
