Learn How Affiliate Marketing Can Be The Start To a New Life.

Learn How Affiliate Marketing Can Be The Start To a New Life.

First I want to commend you for taking the time to learn about the many ways to make money online. It is true with today’s technology and the ease of the internet many people are making their living from home or while traveling. One of the easiest ways is with affiliate marketing. You can learn more about what affiliate marketing is by reading here.

Affiliate Marketing Isn’t The Same Now As Years Past

A few years back when I started looking for a way to earn online, affiliate marketing had a bad reputation it seemed. Any time I would mention affiliate marketing I had friends and family both laugh. If you have had my experience you might have heard things like: Why are you trying another online job? Only way to make money is with a J.O.B. (just over broke) and not giving you the support you needed to making your dreams and aspirations a reality. Those days thankfully are past. Affiliate marketing has a viable way to replace the 9 to 5 job and is now a reality for thousands!

Looking for a new life – a new change

Fast forwards a few years to the present and affiliate marketing has now become a growing industry all its own. A look at the numbers and you will be asking yourself why? Why didn’t I jump in earlier. Let’s take a quick look at some recent numbers. The digital advertising industry globally as a whole is worth over $ 192 Billion, yes that is billion. In 2017, it was estimated that google had 650,000 searches PER MINUTE!

Now a look at the affiliate marketing side of the advertising industry, which is basically becoming an industry onto itself. It is projected to increase annually by a total of 10.1% between 2015 and 2020, to an estimated US$6.8 billion industry. Some other reports have it increasing even more. You can view the whole article by clicking this link. 192 Billion Digital Advertising

Since the start of 2020 and the whole pandemic the whole affiliate marketing industry is now seeing those estimates triple industry wide. We are staying home, shopping online in record numbers. All this is leading to unheard of growth and also demand in the industry. More demand for customers looking for product reviews. More demand for quality recommendations. More demand for knowledge.

Living the dream starts with desire – passion – and a purpose

Once you have those three then it is time to jump in and start making that dream a reality. The good news is that it is easier than ever to start your own online business and requires very little capital if any. I will show you below how you can start your business for free.

The best way to get into affiliate marketing is with your own website. Once you can get an affiliate marketing website up and running you will be ready to enjoy some of the better things in life. Plus the feeling of being a business owner with your own brand, doing what you want when you want without worrying about how the bills are going to get paid. Affiliate marketing websites allow you to create a passive income that could be for life and longer. Wouldn’t it be a great legacy to pass on your own business to the kids or grandchildren. Not to mention the ease of mind knowing you do not have to go out and you can stay safe at home in the middle of this chaos, and still provide for your family.

To create a brand or service that will supply the demands of the economy the possibilities are endless.

So What Is The Affiliate Marketing Business Model

The basic principle of affiliate marketing is rather simple as you can see from the above diagrams.

  1. You find a great product or service that offers an affiliate program.
  2. You send potential customers to the website of that product or service using a special tracking link.
  3. If that potential customer ends up making a purchase, you receive a percentage commission on the sale!

Pretty straight forward and once you figure out the HOW to make it work, well you will probably never go back to a 9 to 5 job again. I know I never have to. So the question becomes how is the best way to learn affiliate marketing?

  1. You energized me anew and now thinking of trying affiliate marketing. I’ve been hearing good things about this kind of business on the Internet, but was hesitant to try because, I always got reminded of the scams I’ve invested in online in the past. Based on your explanation here, it looks like this is something different from those fly-by-night companies I’ve been a member of.

    If I join today, can you guarantee me you will always be there for me to guide me step by step? With that said amount required, can you at least give me a rough estimate of how many weeks or months will I reach the ROI (return on investments) level? Or, if I do it full time, how many months to take til I read the profit mode?

    • Yes Wealthy Affiliate is definitely different, they have been in business for 13 years now. They have never missed a payment on their own affiliate program, the owners themselves are in chat at least a few times a week. Plus always accessible by private message. Can I guarantee I will be there? You betcha with 3 websites to keep running and the training I am always doing to keep up with the latest know hows I will not be going any where soon! As far as how soon the roi really does depend on you and a few different factors. Your niche, your drive,how much time you can devote to your business.etc.

      I have seen members start making money after just their 2nd month in some have taken as long as a yr or more.Really depends on many factors. Myself I started in on the training right away, I already had a few ideas as to what kind of websites I wanted so I was able along with other outside life stuff to start making money within 3 months.

  2. As a fellow retiree, Cathy, I found your website inspirational.

    You’re quite right that affiliate marketing has matured over the past few years from something that sounded vaguely dishonest to something that is now totally legitimate.

    And they don’t come any better than Wealthy Affiliate.

    It has the best and most thorough training, along with a wonderfully knowledgeable, supportive and helpful community.

    You can post any question you like, and it will normally be answered within a couple of minutes.

    This means that you’re never stuck and can always move forward as fast as you are able. There’s nothing worse than being held up for 24 hours while waiting on an essential piece of the puzzle. With members all over the world, WA always has an expert in your time zone.

    And I know of no other program that gives as much as WA to its free members. It’s truly a try before you buy.

    I would urge anyone reading Cathy’s article to give WA a try. She provides the links for you to do so and personal support.

    • Thank you so much for reading and commenting Phil . That was the first thing I noticed that made Wealthy Affiliate different from any other platform, you can really try it all and test drive everything for free first.

  3. I have to agree with you 100% regarding Affiliate Marketing.  I tried so many different business opportunities and gave up for a while.  In February, 2018 I was invited to try WA for a free week.  After that I became a premium member and I have not regretted it.  There is no better training and support anywhere.

    Wealthy Affiliate is the way to go.


    • Absolutely I have found a few other platforms like Wealthy Affiliate but none that offer as much and with Wealthy Affiliate once you are premium you do not have any upsells!!

  4. US $6.8 billion? That’s a lot of money that I would love to have my share. I also came across affiliate marketing while I was searching for ways to make money online. The concept was totally new to me because I was fond of easy and quick ways to make money which virtually made me broke – scams! My understanding now has made me realize that it’s an evergreen business that has a lot to offer. 

    However, I find dropshipping too to be interesting. Do you think affiliate marketing is better than dropshipping?

    • Hello thank you for stopping by and commenting. For your question on affiliate marketing versus drop-shipping. I have done both off and on for years. Like everything there are pro’s and con’s  While drop-shipping can be profitable it does require much more risk in my experience. The main one being that you are dependant on the drop shipper as a third party, what if they run out of stock and your not informed? You have to continuously keep up with stock and updating. Once your customer orders from you and you send the info to the drop shipper it you and the your customer are now at their mercy. Affiliate marketing also can be revolving at times but with much less risk involved. I personally find affiliate marketing better for long term passive income. Really depends I guess on you and what your passions are. I think both can be evergreen in their rite.

  5. Hi Cathie, This is an excellent article about Affiliate marketing basic rules and great review of The Wealthy Affiliate Program. I like the program very much and I’ve already joined this program as a premium member and also purchased a domain there. Very soon, I am going to follow you. Your article is great inspiration for me. Can you share a opinion about time needed to establish in this sector from your experience. Thanks for your helpful information.

    • From experience it took me about three months to start making money. The average I would say is to give it at least a year for many factors. Like how many articles you can post,time it takes to get through training etc. You said you were a premium member you can send me a private message in WA with any help needed  Cav1966 

  6. I am glad to know that I am getting into the field of affiliate marketing before it hits a super growth stage. I am curious if after 2020 affiliate marketing as a business is going to peak as high as 6.8 billion as far as money is concerned. 

    I don’t want to feel like the piece of the pie is only a small one. 

    • Personally and from many other reports I have read I believe it will go even higher. Mostly because our use of technology is ever growing. Just the United States and Canada alone are adding thousands of new internet users per day.

  7. I also share your views too. A few years back, I really didn’t believe in this affiliate marketing programs. I thought it wouldn’t be sustainable, but my shortsightedness has really cost me, because I’m now an affiliate marketer. 

    The affiliate marketing industry is huge because a lot of people are online. This days, virtually everyone comes online for one reason or the other. This means there is more traffic and more potential income.

    I absolutely agree that Wealthy Affiliate is the place to start out. Being able to create a website in less than a minute, and your on you way to becoming a super affiliate. It’s also good to note that Wealthy Affiliate has a vibrant community of successful affiliate marketers, and they’re always willing to help at all time.

    The potential to earn online will keep increasing, and I urge everyone reading this to take actionable steps today.

    • You couldn’t be more right. Like you a few years back I was just testing the waters out in affiliate marketing but I did not take it seriously nor did I look at it as a business. Boy I wish I had back then. I started affiliate marketing this time around with a different mindset knowing this was a business and I treated it like a business from the get go. Affiliate marketing is phenomenal!!! 

  8. The benefits of Wealthy Affiliate is enormous. There are tons of lessons to help you fully understand the wide scope of affiliate marketing. There are also awesome tools like jaaxy, site health, site feedback, site comments and domain registration. I have joined wealthy affiliate for some months now and I have never regretted my actions ever since then. This article should be an eye opener for newbies

    • Totally agree! Wealthy Affiliate has been the best decision I have made in a long time. 4 websites now and not planning on looking back anytime soon.

  9. Hi there, talking about affiliate marketing to make money online, many people then thought it’s a wasted effort and also a wasted time, but things are changing over time and people orientation about affiliate marketing are changing, wealthy affiliate is platform to help people become even more than affiliate marketers, I will encourage people joining through you to upgrade to premium membership on time so as to enjoy full membership benefits on the platform 

    • Thank you for commenting. Yes the landscape of affiliate marketing has a legitimate business model has definitely changed for the better over the years. Just recently the internet as we know it just turned 30 years ago! .Wow a lot of changes and affiliate marketing has grown up with it.

  10. Awesome Information. What an incredible blog post!I really love the way you outlined  the review on affilliate marketing and specifially wealthy affiliate that we call WA. I am already a premium member of this great and reliable platform I have been enjoying the benefits integrated in it; I cannot help but agree with everything that you had written.

    • So glad you like it. Thisis the best platform I have personally found and over the years I have tried out many. None had the knowledgeable training that you can get from Wealthy Affiliate plus as a member not only knowledge and know how but the hosting,domain name registration,websites and more.

  11. Nice article. This is actually the start to a new life for me too personally. And yes affiliate marketing is not what it used to be. Apart from what you have cited, there are now many tools that can be used to make affiliate marketing very easy and far more efficient than it ever was then. Judging from the stats you gave, we can see the effect of these tools in recent times financially. 

    • Yes and affiliate marketing projected over the next few years is going to skyrocket. It really is one of the best ways legitimately to make money online today

    • Thank you for stopping by and reading my article. I couldn’t agree more if you want to learn affiliate markting Wealthy Affiliate is the way to go hands down. This is their 14th year in business and still growing so they know a thing or two on what works.

  13. Hello Cathy 

    This is a wonderful article i must say you’re really an affiliate marketer because you have convinced me in your post that wealthy affiliate is one of the most reputable affiliate programme in the affiliate world and I am definitely going to give it a try and share along with friends to grow an online business empire , but do they just have yearly upgrade o we can also get monthly upgrade?

    • Wealthy Affiliate does have a monthly fee of $49 or the yearly fee if you want to save a little more. This year they also have a 6 month option that allows you to pay premium 6 months at a time

  14. Making money online seems to be the trend for many people these days, especially those who got fed up working for somebody else. I really wish I can also quit my 9-5 job because it really sucks having to report for work everyday and knowing that no matter how hard you work your butts off, you still get paid the same. Unless of course you get promoted which would mean you also get a raise.

    Becoming a successful affiliate marketer is absolutely life-changing and I am very much interested to learn all about it. I did sign up for several online programs in the past but I still found myself struggling to build a website so I put this dream on hold for a while.

    You mentioned that there are two kinds of membership at Wealthy Affiliate: starter and premium. I wonder if I can be successful in affiliate marketing without having to upgrade. Or I will be able to quit my job and start a new life while remaining a free member at WA.

    • Hello yes there is a starter membership and a premium. As a starter member you do get 2 free websites to build on and you can continue to build on those websites the whole time. It is beneficial to upgrade as you get soo much more training and know how on everything affiliate marketing and how to build websites in general affiliate and ecommerce.So I would highly recommend it plus you get hosting for up to 50 sites. Can you remain free and be successful a few members have but I think it would take a very long time.

  15. Thesfirst the same time as the first time in the future and the other is a great way to e y I want to say that your website has such meaningful information, that I hold dearly and I would like to not just make use of this information you have made available to me by this article you have put together, I will not just stop by taking reading this content alone, but I surely will always continue to visit this website, to get more useful information.

    The first thing I did was to be a part of the world and the other is a great way to get the best out of the way and I have to say that I am not a fan of the most important

  17. When I first started looking for good ways for me to learn how to make money from the internet, I didn’t ever think that I would be selling stuff for other people and making commissions from it. Thinking about it now I can say that’s I have also become successful at doing it and this is a big start to a really beautiful life for me. Great stuff.

    • I know the feeling. When I started online a few years back I knew I could make some commissions ,but it wasnt until I started taking this business seriously did I see that I could actually be doing this fulltime. Affiliate marketing is definitely the way to go. 

  18. I am impressed on how many Google searches are performed per minute. And I know this is a trend that will only continue to grow. I also know that we will all eventually work online one way or another as the years go by. So I believe that now is the right moment to start working online on our own business. I am excited about giving this platform a try.

    • That is wonderful to hear. Yes it was already getting popular with making money online but now with the pandemic people are realizing just what kind of freedom online marketing gives. Very viable and legitimate way to earn a living and than some.

  19. Hello, this is a very awesome piece and a very detailed one. I’m really happy I came across this as the information I’m getting from here is standard. Am really happy to be in this platform I am really learning allot I never knew about this before but reading about it now is an eye-opener this is nice to know and understand keep up
