  1. Hi Lex,

    We were hook on the idea of earning money online for a long time.  The idea that we can working from home or any place for that matter is always one of our goals.  We spent a lot of time to build our affiliate site, reading a lot of book, then we realize that we can not do this by our selves.  We need a system, proper training, and community that understand how to build our affiliate marketing business.

    That is where we found Wealthy Affiliate.  We decided to join, and experience it for our selves.  And that was the best decision that we ever made… we love it, we learn a lot, and most of all… it is showing a positive result…

    All the best,

    Kalle & Marie

    • Hi Kalle & Marie,

      Wealthy Affiliate is a good place to learn affiliate marketing.  Thanks for telling us your experience. 


  2. My decision to try an affiliate marketing is because I don’t have a degree and it is expensive to get one even with scholarships. Affiliate marketing thankfully requires no degree and no previous work experience. The only requirements are persistence and effort. I’m curious how you discovered affiliate marketing? I discovered it on accident when I was googling whether a certain email I received was a get rich quick scam, which is what. 

    • Hi Lex,

      Here is my story…

      One boring afternoon, I was on my computer looking for something interesting because I had nothing to do.  I came across one health product website and I was reading the “About Me” page.  The lady was talking about herself and mentioned about Wealthy Affiliate causally.  I didn’t read any review of Wealthy Affiliate at all. Since I had nothing to do, so I sign up and see what it is just for curiosity – also it was free.  I was hooked and I signed up to premium within a few days. 
      The rest are history and now 6 years later. I am still with Wealthy Affiliate. 

  3. Hello there, Thanks for sharing this awesome article I know it would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me.Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promoting it to people and thereafter get a piece of the profit  for each sale that you make.

    One of the reasons why like affiliate marketing is the the fact that it is really flexible and allow on to work anywhere at any time…i strongly recommend everyone to get into it as it is onne of the best soures of passive income

  4. Hello there! this is an amazing review you have got here, I am sure the information in this post will be of great help to anyone who come across it.  I totally agree with you on everything you have said here especially that ultimate question “Why learn Affiliate Marketing”, the answer to this question will determine your success in it.


  5. How true this is, whenever you invest in an education then then you are empowering yourself to change your world. Affiliate Marketing when properly executed offers so many advantages. In my opinion it is the best work from home business anyone can venture into. It by far surpasses any unrealistic get rich quick schemes that are up fro grabs these days. It is low cost and you get to chooses your own niche or interest. If only more training programs were like Wealthy Affiliate then everyone would be into it. I’m glad I’m a member. Thanks for sharing this information.

    • Thanks for leaving me a comment.  Affiliate marketing is a work from home business.  In fact, you can work from anywhere or on a beach as long as you have your computer with you. It is not a get rich quick scheme and need some work to succeed. 

  6. I completely agree with your assessment of affiliate marketing. I have found it to be a reliable way to break into website marketing. For me, the Wealthy Affiliate program is the way to go. I know there are others, too, but WA seems to have the strongest training with an incredible community support network.

    You mention learning and I think that is so necessary. Anyone can set up a basic website by following some simple online steps. But it takes more than just a website to truly make money, month after month. You have to understand the entire process. And WA does an excellent job of walking members through those steps.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas on affiliate marketing. I believe it is one of the best ways for many to earn from home.

    • Hi Diane,

      Seems to me you know a lot about affiliate marketing.  Yes, we have to learn all the tricks to be a good affiliate marketer.  Thanks for your comment.

  10. Hi,

    I happened to know that Wealthy Affiliate no longer provides free account for Indians. But you suggested to sign up for free. Please clarify us.


    • Hi sakthivel,

      Yes, Indians cannot join as free member. You can sign up and join as premium. It could be that Wealthy Affiliate had a lot of people joined before in India but never sign up to premium. Because of this bad experience, they don’t give free accounts to Indians.
      There are people who signed up on premium membership and they said they are getting value for their money.


    • Hi Prashanth,

      First thing you should do is to join Wealthy Affiliate first, click here. You don’t have to pay any money to join. Then you can take the free lessons. It will be a very good start for you as a beginner.


  11. Dear sir,
    I have been trying to affiliate in Amazon.For This I have already created a website in a specific niche. But After selling a product ,amazon has been banned my account twice because of may be their terms and conditions.

    I can’t courage to link again. Because I can’t identify my fault.

    Please suggest me what should I do now?

    • Hi Manik,

      For Amazon to ban you, you must have clicked on your own affiliate links. I am not sure if you can reactivate your account. If not, all you can do is to sign up with other vendors. Don’t be despaired, Amazon is not the only vendor. There are lots of other companies who offer good products and better commissions, like Aliexpress and ShareASale.


  12. Hello sir I am currently part of W.A I’m a premium member. I signed up 2 months ago and for the past month I have been stuck beyond belief struggling with building my website with WordPress I went to live chat and all I get is links to videos and some of the videos for building site seems outdated and there are so many people with blogs with different views on the same topic it’s overwhelming. I am at a cross roads as to what to do, cancel cut my losses with W.A or join another course out there or find some way to build my site and continue learning to be an affiliate marketer?? I thought I finaly found the method or program that would help me. I’m lost and don’t know what to do I want to stop working in landscaping out in all kinds of weather I’m 40 and want to start to create a passive income as I learn to implement I want to take care of my mom and wifes finances instead of my mom cleaning houses still at 66 and my wife quitting her job and move to an area we would rather live somewhere warmer instead of up state NY. Any advice would be helpfull.

    • Hi Glenn,

      It seems to me that you are incapable of creating a working website all by yourself. My suggestion to you – don’t waste your time on affiliate marketing. You can definitely make money doing affiliate marketing, but it is not for everyone. People who told you that ANYONE can be successful in affiliate marketing is lying. It take certain attributes to be a good affiliate marketer.
      In you case, I would suggest you to look for other alternatives. I don’t know what kind of skills you have. Take to good look at your own situation and think hard on what you can do. Maybe you can start up a company and do what you are good at.

      I wish you good luck.

    • Hi Mahtabur,

      You should advertise and post your website on Social Media, such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. Or even run advertisement on these channels.

  13. Hi Mr. Wailer,

    Do you have a contact email ? I’d like to see if you’d be interested in trying a free product from Greatwebsiteplans.com, to review, see how you like it.

    Thank you!


  14. I am really interested in affiliate marketing. I tried to sign up for wealthy affiliate but they said they don’t have free membership for my country. I’m from India. So I looked up on google for free training and found your website. I really like your article and I’ve decided to go through with it. Thank You.

    • If you are serious are making money with affiliate marketing. You should sign up with Wealthy Affiliate like I did several years ago – the membership is not expensive and it is value for money. You will get a lot more information than with my website.
      I wish you all the best.

  15. Hello,
    I am interested in Affiliate Marketing and got your link in google search. I have read your article and very impressed. I want to continue learning with your site.


  16. Great insights about affiliate marketing. It is very hard to sell products along with competent marketers and your video is very helpful specially for new marketers. Thanks for sharing.

  17. This is a great website. Love your information. I’ve started a website on affiliate marketing – everything in one place for learning and keep up to date with authors, videos, articles with great tips, and some. Feel free to visit my site and get some good information and content. I’m all about helping people and learning. Thank you. My site is http://www.oneplaceaffiliatemarketing.com

    • Hi Susan,

      I have visited your site. The design is good, clean and nice. You have some good tips and materials for beginner affiliate marketer. But there are still ways to improve it. For example, use shorter paragraphs and it will be easier to read. The menu is a bit cluster and you can make it better.
      Good luck to your business.


  18. First to say thanks for sharing this great step by step training tutorials. Affiliated marketing is good way to make money online. I am just start my blog and make good commission. So it’s nice resource to make money fast. Your article is must helpful for newbie blogger like me.

    • Hi John,

      Thanks for the comment. It is good to know that I can help. I wish you all the best with your blog.

      Kind regards,

    • Hi Syed,

      I would suggest you join Wealthy Affiliate. It doesn’t cost you any money to join and try it out. Then you would know if it is suitable for you. Click here to join.
      It is better than learning affiliate marketing by yourself.

  19. When I read this story I was reminded of my journey to success as an affiliate marketer.
    When I first started, all I wanted was to set up a website to make extra income. However, I didn’t know the first thing about doing that or anything else related to internet marketing, for that matter.

    Over the years, I’ve learned from many different sources about how to build a website, draw traffic to it, find the best keywords, and write copy.

    Through much trial and error, I can say that I now make a full time income as an affiliate marketer.

    Even though I bought many of the popular courses and tried out what most of the well known “gurus” have to offer, I honestly have to say that what helped me out the most was a resource that many of you might not have heard of.
    If you’re interested, check out for yourself what I’m talking about:


    Hope it helps anyone reading this!

    • Hi Kevin,

      It is nice of you letting us know about the resources that you used. I am very happy to hear that you can make a full-time income doing affiliate marketing.
      Most of those gurus who promised too much and never deliver. They only want your money.
      For me, I want to help people learn how to do affiliate marketing the correct way. I want everyone to know there is no shortcut. If one wants to be successful, hard work is needed.
      Thanks for the comment.


  20. Thanks, You have Reach my knowledge with this great content.
    Getting involved in affiliate marketing is a great chance to make a lot of cash on the Internet, but one should not go into it blindly. Since an affiliate you must invest some time in research, this is absolutely necessary. Know very well what products you want to market, how much you can make on each sale and the come back rate of the product. If possible it? a good idea to buy or request a trial therefore you know the product inside and out.

    • A superb comment. Affiliate Marketing eBooks, you are absolutely correct in saying we need to research the product. Of course, it is best to try the product before you write a review on it. But some might not be able to get the product if it is too expensive or out of reach.
      I welcome you to give me more insightful comments; we could all learn something from you. I wish you luck in your business.

    • Hi Dalour,

      Thank you for nice comment. If you read some of my posts carefully, you will find instructions which teach you certain skills in affiliate marketing. You can buy a book on affiliate marketing and it will give you everything you need to know. The aim of my website is a guide to people who want to take up affiliate marketing, not a total solution as in a university course.
      I am glad you find my posts helpful.


  21. This sounds great, you’re right in that affiliate marketing is definitely not easy, but I love the way you break it down and talk about why it’s important to learn about it. It’s definitely the kind of thing that takes a certain person to teach/convey the important aspects of how to be successful at it, and it sounds like you know exactly how to do that! I love how informative this whole site is and it’s a great resource and tool for people out there looking to grow their small business, so I’ll definitely be sharing this!

    • Hi Hannah,

      It takes certain attributes to be a successful affiliate marketer, that is the reason why so many people have failed to make money in this business. I tell you a secret. As long as you don’t quit and keep learning, you will be successful one day. It takes few years to learn a degree course in university. Why would you think you can learn this business in few months?
      You need to think of affiliate marketing as a normal business. It takes hard work and dedication to build a successful business.
      I am glad that you like my website.


  22. Hello,

    I went through your website and I really like the information you gave.

    I am also interested in Internet Marketing.i.e Affiliate marketing business but;

    1. I don,t have any knowledge about website creation or website hosting
    2. I don,t know how to do SEO
    3. I am unaware of how to get content for the website and attract traffic for the website

    So, can I still earn money through affiliate marketing.

    Kindly revert,


    • Hi Sandeep,

      I would suggest you join Wealthy Affiliate and learn how to build websites. It is free to join. You will learn how to do SEO and all the other things that you need to know about making money online. After you joined, I can help you with your website.


  23. Hi, seems to be a great website.

    We have built an amazing affiliate stores specific to amazon. Would be interested to a private beta user for http://curateplus.com ?

    Its combination of social network and ecommerce. Perfect combination for sales.

    Thanks again for such a great article

    • Hi Raviraj,

      The packages offered on curateplus.com is too expensive – $990 for a starter package. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to join your program. The better alternative is to buy an already established website on Flippa. For the same amount, you can buy one which is already making money rather than starting from scratch.
      It is more important to learn all the basic about website building. If anyone is seriously considering affiliate marketing, I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate. http://goo.gl/u709eQ

  24. Excellent information! I do really like those 12 reasons to become an affiliate marketer. If it only was for the fact I wouldn’t be stuck in traffic every day, that would be a lifesaver on its own 🙂

    I checked out your lessons with great interest and although I’m doing a bit of affiliate work myself, I did still learn a couple of things. I think these lessons will be excellent for beginners!

    Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Jurgen,

      There are many benefits to being an affiliate marketer. It is great to be our own boss and don’t have to travel to work. I try to give value to my visitors and give them information on everything about affiliate marketing. Hopefully, they will be able to learn something with my website.

    • Thanks for visiting. You have a very good website, exceptional layout and a lot of interesting content and pictures. I recommend anyone who likes a good story to visit The Youth Magazine.

  25. I dug the article, I myself have also been looking for all the affiliate Marketing training I can find. I’ve used Clickbank and Affilorama. In my opinion affilorama so far has been the most detailed. They cover pretty much everything one would need to know. I look forward to checking out all your lesson plans, thanks for all your hard work.

    • Hi Joshua,
      Affilorama do offer some good training, but you have to pay for upgrades besides your normal premium membership fee. Then it will add up to be more expensive than other companies. Wealthy Affiliate only charges a membership fee and no more. Thanks for visiting.

  26. Hello. I am in the fitness industry as a group exercise instructor and personal trainer. I was wondering would it be possible to use affiliate marketing in conjunction with these services. What would be a good way to do that?

    • Hi Janaya,

      You can build a website to promote your business. Then within the website, you can affiliate products like training equipment, diet supplements and even medicine for people who hurt themselves when exercising.

  27. Still not sure? The good news is that you can try Affilorama Premium and AffiloTools for just $1 for an entire month. I personally recommend it, because it has saved me time, made me more efficient, and as a result of using the tools my website rankings are better than before. In addition to everything I have mentioned, there are tonnes of other great bonuses too. To find out more, head over to AffiloTools now and see them for yourself: ==> http://bit.ly/1XGUj6I

    • Hi Martin,

      I have tried Affilorama Premium, please read my post Affilorama Review to see my experience with Affilorama and how I rate them. I must say they do have some good lessons, but some lessons are out-of-date and no longer relevant.
      If I have to choose between Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate, I would choose Wealthy Affiliate. One of the main reason is their excellent support. Also, Wealthy Affiliate has no upsell and they give you all the lessons and training videos when you are premium. Please see my Wealthy Affiliate Review for details.
      $1 is a small price to pay, but there are lots of tools online which are free.
      In a lot of the Affilorama training videos, they spend too much time promoting themselves and their products than giving you training.

      Anyway, thanks for commenting. I wish you success in your business.

  33. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of
    spam feedback? If so how do you reduce it, any
    plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help
    is very much appreciated.

    • Hi Cathrine,

      I don’t know what software you use. I am using WordPress, and you can install a Akismet Plugin. It will protect you from spam, it keeps all the spam comments in the spam section. Then you can delete them manually or you can change the setting to delete them automatically.
      I choose to delete them manually, because sometimes it will put the wrong comment in the spam section.

      I hope this will help.
