How can I make money with affiliate marketing? The other question may be CAN I make money with affiliate marketing? The answer is yes! I wondered the very same thing.
First off, my name is Aaron and my background consists of various business ventures that included a deli, video store, selling music memorabilia (To support my own collecting), and a few more things. You can read a bit more on my about me page on my site here.
Affiliate marketing is quite unique. It’s like having a business with an unlimited supply of products to sell. In fact, your biggest hurdle isn’t if you can do it or not it will be deciding what to offer. Like anything else in life, you need to learn the best way to be successful at this. You could do it all by yourself and make whatever mistakes you will inevitably make or you can follow a time tested path that WORKS. Also, you would need a place where you can find support and maybe people you can “brain storm” with and maybe get opinions on your ideas. That’s where Wealthy Affiliate comes in. The minute you go to the site you will notice all the people in the community. You can sign up and look at all the training available and really explore it until you feel comfortable.
Before Wealthy Affiliate I found a couple other places and watched a couple of other people show me all the thousands they were making. Only problem was often times they wanted hundreds of my dollars before I could even start doing anything with them. It was tempting but I really couldn’t afford it. It just didn’t feel right to be asked to shell out all that cash and I don’t even know what to expect.
Obviously, I’m here to praise Wealthy Affiliate and they deserve the praise. They offer what I believe to be the best platform for you to succeed in affiliate marketing. You will learn how to design a website in less than a minute. Yes, you can get a website up and running in less than a minute. You will be taught how to pick items to sell. You can even decide to promote the site itself or you can do both if you choose. The point is it is up to YOU. The resources available are second to none. I can ask a question and get it answered within minutes if not seconds. Live help via chat/message is available 24/7. There’s lessons on how to write reviews and blogs. Yes, I know I need more work hehe. Also, you can do this anywhere you can as long as you have access to the internet.
By the way you can do all of this for FREE. That is what drew me to try it. There are some limitations if you stay with the free membership of course. However, I was able to learn at my own pace and have all my questions asked anytime night or day. Of course, there are other tools and even more education if you choose to join on a paid subscription. You can pay monthly or you can choose a heavily discounted yearly amount. The amounts are best explained here.
Another benefit is that affiliate marketing doesn’t require you to make cold calls or handle returns. It really is a great way to work from home or even augment your current income. I really don’t think you can find a better place then Wealthy Affiliate.
Just remember, you do need to work at it. The more you work the more you will make. I’d really like to emphasize the training they offer. You follow the lessons they provide and follow the instructions or tasks they give you and soon you will see the rewards of affiliate marketing.
I will close this by inviting you to check Wealthy Affiliate for yourself. I really can’t do it justice here in this short post. I have really enjoyed it there. Everyone has been very helpful and encouraging. I think you might be surprised at what you can accomplish. Hope to see you there.
