You can follow up from a variety of sources…

Launch Your Affiliate Offers
Once everything is setup for your new affiliate business, it’s launch time! Start letting traffic and leads run people through your funnels, follow up with those leads generated, and start growing your affiliate efforts.
We recommend that you only launch and start selling any affiliate offer, once you have successfully followed the above steps. It will take some time, but will be well worth the effort when your business launches successfully!

Should Everyone Become An Affiliate?
It depends on if you want to run your own business. Because while being an affiliate is easier then running other kinds of businesses, you still are a business owner in the end. This means you have to be comfortable setting up, managing, and scaling a business.
So, everyone & anyone should only become an affiliate if they want the responsibility & rewards of running a business.
