Is affiliate marketing for beginners?

Yes, it is perfectly suitable for beginners. Affiliate marketing basics are easy to understand just by reading a bit online, like this FAQ, for instance, and trying and failing for a while.

If you are a beginner just starting out you could learn a lot by out my affiliate marketing guide for beginners, joining an affiliate marketing community like Wealthy Affiliate (sponsored link), or by purchasing a course like The Authority Site System from the reputable affiliate marketing gurus over at AuthorityHacker.

Maybe more important than knowing anything about affiliate marketing, in particular, is probably have knowledge about a specific topic that you could write content about on your website. Or at least being eager to research a topic thoroughly and spending time becoming an expert in the future.

Once you create content on a regular basis you will eventually start seeing free and targeted traffic coming from the search engines.

It doesn’t have to be any harder than that.
