Affiliate Marketing – A Smart Way to Riches

That’s right!!  Affiliate marketing is a smart way to create smart passive income.  You can potentially create a $500 a month income or a 6 figure (or more) a year income.  Passive income.  Its totally up to you.

Have you ever heard the saying “It’s simple, but not easy”?  Well making money online is neither, it is NOT simple and it is NOT easy. It takes a lot of work.  As you can see, I am NOT trying to pull the wool over your eyes.

It takes a lot of discipline, concentration, dedication and persistence to build a successful online business and make a lot of money.  It’s also a lot of fun if you love what you’re doing.  How much effort money-1624021__180will you put into your online business to be successful?

Why is affiliate marketing a smart way to riches?

  • You are your own boss and can work from home or anywhere there is internet connection.

  • You refer other people products and earn a commission.  On your website you will put an affiliate link (this is a link that has your tracking ID in it pointing to another website to sell a product).  The great part is that when someone clicks on your link and buys a product – or some products – you get commission from the entire sale whether they buy today, tomorrow, next week or next month.

  • Its a great way to make passive income.  As little or as much as you want.  Yes, it takes work (a lot), especially in the beginning, but you’ll find its worth every effort.

  • You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get started.  As a matter of fact – there are actually sites where you can learn all you need to know about getting started with affiliate marketing absolutely free.  The site I recommend  is Wealthy Affiliate.  Check it out here.

  • And since the internet marketing industry is still growing by leaps and bounds – now is as good a time as any to get started with your online business.

These are just a few of the benefits you will find as you build your online business empire.  But the challenge is getting started.  The more time you put off getting started is the more time it will take to start making money online.  Check out the link below for – in my opinion – one of the BEST sites to learn everything you need to know about affiliate marketing.

So are you thinking that maybe you can do this? What is your take on affiliate marketing? What would be a great benefit to you?  I would love to have your comments.

  1. I would love to make some money in affiliate marketing. I really like the way you have presented it. Yes it is a challenge, but in time, I know it will work out.
    It would be a great benefit if I could really learn what I am doing. I really can’t wait until I get over the learning curve.
    I know if I keep studying and doing, I will get better and better.
    Thanks for this great post.

    • You are more than welcome, Cynthia. I agree that consistent studying helps us get better. We know that practice – and persistence – makes perfect. I’m glad you’re in the WA family. LaBarbara

  2. The way to get anywhere you want to go is by taking that first step. You have given valuable information on how to do that. I have taken that first step by joining Wealthy Affiliate and taking advantage of their free training. By day four in the training I had built my first website ever. There’s nothing to lose to start. Everything is free. Thanks for pointing people in the right direction.

    • Hello Jean

      To your success

  3. Hey good start to your site I like the concept. I wish you would be more in-depth with the information remember an inch wide and a mile deep is better then shallow and broad. Also the blue in your headings makes people think they are clickable assets I even tried to click on one.

    • Hi Rick
      Thanks for the input and suggestions. They are well taken to heart. I also like the idea of a clickable link in the heading! Awesome idea. Thanks again.

    It’s interesting because you keep hearing of people making money online using programs such as this where they are an affiliate. Truth be told, I didn’t realize how easy it was to get started and have a great community of people who are helping me out!

    Keep those content coming!

    Another thing, you may want to get rid of the blue header cause I thought that was a link and tried to click on it.
