Earn Money With Affiliate Programs


Earn Money With Affiliate Programs

Several years ago I ended up online looking for some sort of work to tide me over. I had just lost my job in the security sector and I was pretty pissed off with the whole ‘nine to five’ gig.

I friend of mine mentioned that he had learned how to earn money with affiliate programs and he was doing quite well out of it. My ears pricked up instantly!

Unfortunately I’m the type of guy that likes to find things out for himself. My mate did point out a few ‘safe’ starting points for me but in typical fashion I chose to go my own way…

BIG mistake!

Like so many people before me – I fell for the bright lights offered up by the scam artists and I lost money.

I was not a happy bunny ( as they say! ).

The ( only ) good thing about losing money is that you learn fast – you make darn sure you don’t make the same stupid mistake again.

If you want to make real money online you are going to have to have some sort of ‘safe’ starting point.

You need some sort of training to get you prepared for the shock to the system it actually is. Nobody earns $$$$$ within the first few weeks of starting up – no matter what the dodgy ‘push button’ gurus say.

In the end I got lucky, I stumbled upon a community that taught me how to earn online the legit way and even provided me with the tools needed to succeed…

I signed up with the Wealthy Affiliate.

Earning Money With Affiliate Marketing

Ever since I signed up with the WA I have been earning money with affiliate marketing on a regular basis. There was no magic formula or cheap trick – they offered the training and I put in the hard work…

1) Choose An Interest

If you have a hobby or interest you are already halfway to paradise ( apologies for the cheesy song quote! ). There are millions of different ideas that you could potentially target online and the guys at the WA will help you find yours.

Say for example you were interested in golf or a similar sport. That is the starting idea for your website and you already know that you can talk about the subject all day long.

The initial tutorials at the Wealthy Affiliate will teach you current traffic techniques and how you can get an ton of relevant website customers.

You will be taken through the process step-by-step so that you can dominate the search engines and draw in 1000’s of visitors.

4) Earn Money With Affiliate Programs

Once you start to see traffic coming into your website you are then in the position to earn money with affiliate programs. These allow you to promote pretty much anything you can imagine.

There are no overheads, you do not need to create or own a product and you do not have to handle customer service. These affiliate programs are also FREE to sign up with and use.

You will learn how to send traffic from your website to these affiliate products and earn a commission. Some of these affiliate products pay a whopping 75% commission on every product sale you make!

How to Earn Money With Affiliate Marketing

  3. Hey Chris,

    I got to know about affiliate marketing through Amazon. I heard that some people make a great living simply by selling on Amazon so I went to check it out. Unfortunately, I don’t live in an Amazon-approved country so it was disappointing when I couldn’t sign up as an associate.

    But thanks to the resources in WA, I learn that there are plenty of other affiliate programs out there, you just need to know how to look for them and make sure that they belong to a good paying merchant. If you really spend the time learning this marketing system, you can build a successful online business from home.
