Regain Your Independence, Unleash Your Inner Boss, and Pursue Your Dreams,

Hey All!

Stupid money!

An amount of money (usually a lot) that can be disposed of without any consequences or downsides (not nervous etc. to spend it).

Also known as silly money or discretionary income.

Do you have it?

Probably not!


I’m going to tell you how you can get it!

Yeah, right…Here we go with another scam…sheesh!!! JUST STOP! I’ve heard it all before!

I know you have. That’s why I’m not going to throw a too-good-to-be-true pitch at you.

Instead, I am going to offer a business opportunity to you. A business offer in Affiliate Marketing!

What it isn’t:

  • A gimmick
  • Get rich quick
  • Hard to understand
  • Only for the lucky – this one is debatable because this might be the luckiest day of your life

What is it then?

  • Time-tested
  • Used by many to quit their 9-5
  • Accessible anywhere there is an internet connection
  • A way to make whatever income level you are willing to work for

Sound easy?

It’s not. Making real money requires real effort.

Is it hard work?

Not even close, but it takes time. Oh, wait!!! If you consider using your brain hard work, then it is hard work.

Who do I want on my team?

What is Wealthy Affiliate Marketing?

How Affiliate Marketing Works

There is no end to the information out there about affiliate marketing, but the problem is with so much information, there is going to be bad information, really good information, confusing information, and information that lies somewhere in between.

I have been working with a group of people running successful businesses within the affiliate marketing space since 2020, and during this time not a lot has changed, to be honest. The same “simple formula” that worked three years ago continues to work to this day. You have a product, and you have a customer. Your job as an affiliate marketer is to align these two things. That’s it! Here is a diagram outlining how affiliate marketing works:

How Affiliate Marketing Works

Now I am oversimplifying this a little, but I am doing this for a reason. I don’t want you to be scared of the word “affiliate marketing”, because you are just as capable of creating a full-time and very successful affiliate marketing business as I am. All you need is the right training, the right guidance, and the tools necessary to get you there.

The thing is, affiliate marketing at its core is very simple. There are a few terms that you will want to become familiar with.

Affiliate (YOU). You are the affiliate, which means that you can join companies like Etsy, eBay, Walmart, and Amazon (and 10,000’s others) and promote their products and services. When you join these companies’ Affiliate Programs, they will give you a special “affiliate link” that is exclusive to you, and allows you to track all the sales you generate.

Affiliate Program (a company like Amazon). Most companies have an affiliate program, 99% of all the brands in the world in fact can be promoted online and you, as an affiliate, can earn a commission. Amazon is one of the biggest affiliate programs in the world and will allow you to promote 100’s of MILLIONS of products, with a single account. Pretty awesome right?

Earning Affiliate Commissions. Affiliate programs will give you a kickback if you can send people to their website, and they end up buying something. Say you send someone to Amazon through your affiliate link, and they end up buying a refrigerator. Amazon will pay you a percentage of the total sale. Amazon offers around 3-6% commissions, so a transaction like this may yield you $50-100 (depending on the price of the fridge). Depending on the company and affiliate program, they will typically pay between 2% and 75% in commissions.

Unlimited Potential. As an affiliate marketer, your potential has no limit. The more people you can get buying through your affiliate links, the more money you make. Many affiliate marketers make several million dollars per year, and this can be a reality for anyone that is willing to put forth the effort to build an affiliate marketing business. But HOW do you build an affiliate marketing business? Like this…

The 4-Steps to Starting a Successful Affiliate Marketing Business

4 Steps to Creating a Business

So how can YOU create your own successful affiliate marketing start-up? There are actually only 4-steps to creating a successful affiliate marketing business, and if you can follow these and have access to the training, tools, and support necessary to run your business (which I will be helping you with), you are going to be off and running! So I am not only going to be giving you the exact steps, but helping you understand how you can accomplish these steps.

Step 1: Choose an Idea.

The first thing you are going to need to do before you start the build-out of any business is come up with an idea for your business. This is also called the “niche” stage of your business, where you get to choose the audience and the category of your business. This could be anything, from training a puppy to basketball sports betting to video games, etc. There are literally millions of potential directions that you can head with your business. This is the exciting part.

I tend to recommend that people choose a passion/interest as their niche. This way, you will truly love your business and when you love what you do, you never have to “work” a day in your life. The Internet and the affiliate marketing industry have afforded us all this very opportunity.

How to Choose Your Idea: Choose a niche or a passion. There are close to 5 BILLION people online now, so even the most obscure niches have vast audiences. If you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate, you have direct video classes walking you through the niche selection process along with direct help from the community (and myself) who can give you feedback on your niche. And with the new AI Niche Finder on the platform, picking a niche has never been easier.

Step 2: Build a Website.

Your website is the foundation of your business. Think of it like a shop within the offline world. If you have no “storefront”, you don’t have the ability to attract and help customers, or the ability to sell anything. Your website is in essence your storefront, where you are able to help your audience, communicate with your audience, and promote products/services to your audience.

If you don’t have a website, you don’t stand much hope of running an online business. It is the first and key necessity you need to create a long-term business.

How to Accomplish: You can build high-performing and profit-ready websites with ease, at Wealthy Affiliate. You can even get up and running with one for completely free, within the Starter account. Another perk to using the website platform over at Wealthy Affiliate is that their hosting (where your website lives) is high-speed and ranks better than other providers. This can give you a competitive advantage and can lead to a lot more opportunities as you build out your website.

Step 3: Get an Audience.

In the Internet world, your website is also the place where your “traffic” will arrive. Without people coming to your website, there is no way to make money. So it is important to understand how to attract traffic to your website.

Traffic can come in many forms, but one of the most sustainable and long-term traffic methods is search engine optimization. This means, getting ranked in search engines like Google, and as a result getting all sorts of FREE traffic to your website. Once you have traffic, you have opportunity.

So this is the next focus, once you have your website up and running. Building out your website in a way that leads to traffic.

How to Accomplish: You need proper “traffic” training, along with a website that is set up to rank well within search engines. These are both things that are provided within Wealthy Affiliate, you have access to elite SEO training, along with classes and access to experts that will personally help you with your traffic campaigns.

Plus, there are many other ways you can get traffic to your website as you build it out. Social media channels, YouTube and video blogging, podcasts, and paid traffic channels. These are all covered in detail within the training at Wealthy Affiliate.

Step 4: Make Money

Last but not least, the “make money” part of your business. This is where you earn money through affiliate programs. Basically, there are over 550 MILLION products/services that you can promote as an affiliate marketer, in exchange for a commission. You will be adding these special links on your website from companies like Amazon, Etsy, Nike, Apple, eBay, etc…and you will then earn a “kickback” if someone goes from your website to theirs and ends up buying something.

The affiliate marketing industry is growing at the fastest pace ever, and affiliates stand to earn $12 BILLION online this year…with this growing even more next year. You can get your chunk of this pie.

How to Accomplish: Finding affiliate programs can be an inefficient task at the best of times. You typically have to go through a bunch of Google searches, just to find what you are looking for. Within Wealthy Affiliate, you have instant access to an Affiliate Program search where you can search through 10,000+ affiliate programs, across some of the top affiliate networks online.

Not to mention, the training you will be getting on how to properly integrate affiliate promotions into your website to maximize conversions….along with some insight into the customer purchase life cycle, and critical information if you want to become a high-performing, and successful affiliate marketer online.

12/22/2023 – Wealthy Affiliate just opened up an addition to the platform called “HUBS.” Hubs is an AI-driven section of the WA platform that makes it easier than ever to build your online business. I just started working in the Hub, and it is an affiliate marketing dream come true.

Comparing the NEW Way (at Wealthy Affiliate) to the OLD Way

I’m going to draw a clear contrast between the old-school methods of launching an online business and our NEW, innovative approach here at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s important to understand just how much the landscape has shifted.

The typical 40-hour setup that used to be a barrier for many (most) is now radically reduced with WA. If you’ve ever found yourself burning the midnight oil trying to get your first website off the ground, you’re going to appreciate the next piece of information.

Here is a breakdown between the NEW and the OLD.

New Way vs. Old Way

The New WA (no pun intended) is 3 steps and 35 minutes to set up the foundation of your business and website. This includes your niche direction, your brand, your WordPress website + initial plugin set-up, the framework content pages, and your first keyword-rich page.

With the ‘Old Way,’ the way that other companies are still forcing you into is 17 steps, and takes close to 40 hours to learn and accomplish the same thing (not to mention a lot more money).

This changes the dynamic of WHO can start a business now. Hobbyists who previously might have been intimidated by the complexity of building an online business can now manage without needing to dedicate eight-hour days to get rolling.

People with nothing more than a dream can now create fully functional businesses faster than ever.
