Step By Step To Affiliate Marketing – A Beginner’s Guide

One of the best things about affiliate marketing (besides earning passive income), is you don’t need any experience or education! Although it doesn’t hurt to have some knowledge of website building or marketing strategies, you can learn all you need to know right here online!

Becoming an affiliate marketer is easy, and only takes a few simple steps. Creating a successful, online business will give you the freedom to live your life the way you want! After following this step by step to affiliate marketing, you’ll have everything you need to start earning your very own passive income online.

Affiliate marketing is your path to self-employment!

The Steps to Affiliate Marketing – Your Success Made Easy

Your success is just within reach, and all it takes is your best foot forward. Creating a successful online business is not as complicated as it may seem, and earning money is even less complicated. The process of earning money with affiliate marketing is incredibly simple:

Write a review  ->  Reader clicks affiliate link and buys a product  ->  Earn a commission!

The goal of affiliate marketing is to turn a website that you create, into a source of passive income. And with the extensive, and professional training provided at Wealthy Affiliate, you’ll know everything you need to know to create success through self-employment.

Becoming an affiliate marketer is as easy as following these 4 simple steps:

  1. Learn the basics to affiliate marketing
  2. Start Your Free Training
  3. Choose a niche, and create your website
  4. Build content

Not only can you get your business underway in a matter of minutes, but you can do it all without spending a single dime! 

Make Money Online – Without Selling Anything!

Affiliate marketing is reviewing not selling

Affiliate marketing takes no business experience or skills in sales, because you aren’t selling anything! Your job as an affiliate, is to publish and not sell. Publishing content is how you will get your cut of the billions of dollars spent online every year.

Although similar to a salesman, your income will come from commissions when people purchase products online. The difference between a salesman and you as an affiliate, is that you review products, while a salesman sells products. You will be much more successful if you provide people will accurate, and detailed information with which they can come to their own conclusion. 

When someone buys a product online, there are several steps they take before making the actual purchase. Most importantly, this includes reading reviews about those products to gain accurate, insightful information before spending their money. If they come across your review and find it both helpful, and trustworthy, you’ll have a great chance of converting visitors into commissions! 

Can I Make Enough to Become Self-Employed? YES!

Affiliate marketing has vast earning potential, with more than enough to become a full-time affiliate marketer. The benefit to a passive income, is that you earn money 24/7! You could be earning commissions while you sleep, and you WILL be if you’re persistent and don’t give up. It won’t happen overnight, but with some hard work you can make your dream of self-employment from home become a reality.

In an earlier article, I outline the immense earning potential of affiliate marketing. Suffice it to say that there are hundreds, if not thousands of people who have already become an affiliate, and worked their way to 6 and even 7 figure salaries. The majority of these success stories come from people with no prior experience in any form of marketing. So don’t feel intimidated or worried you won’t be able to succeed, because there’s plenty of training and community support to help you along every step of the way.

Passive Income = Freedom

Your Success is Closer Than You Think!

Traditionally, if you wanted to become a marketer of any kind you’d need an education in marketing. Education is not cheap, nor is it quick. After spending thousands of dollars, and at the very minimum a couple years studying, the best you’ll end up with is a decent job with heaps of student debt.

What if I told you that affiliate marketing requires:

  • No education
  • No experience
  • No start up costs
  • A computer

These are the requirements of affiliate marketing! All you need is a computer to start building your business. You could be earning money after just weeks of working as an affiliate marketer, which is no time at all. And you can do it from the comfort of your own home!

Lets put things in perspective.

Affiliate marketing is a better alternative to a formal education

A formal education:

  • Costs thousands of dollars
  • Takes years to complete
  • Results in heaps of student debt
  • Does not guarantee a job in today’s economy

An affiliate marketing education:

  • Costs nothing
  • Takes just a few lessons to complete
  • Earns you money while you learn
  • Guarantees you your very own business (or businesses!)

If you WANT to be successful, you WILL be successful with affiliate marketing.

      Hey Rob,

      Thanks for your personal review of Wealthy Affiliate. It’s truly an amazing, complete platform for building a successful website. I have loved my time with them, and don’t regret upgrading to premium.

      I would highly recommend first taking a look at what the free training has to offer before deciding to make the next step and become a premium member. You can get the first month for more than 50% off for the first week, so my recommendation would be to take the first week and get started, then make your own decision about upgrading.

      The benefits to going premium are seemingly never ending, and if you are interested in earning good money online, I highly recommend making the small investment. It only costs $50/month (which is far less than what it would cost to host your website outside of WA anyway). And for the quality, and quantity of training you get, it’s the cheapest education you will ever invest in. Plus, you can make money while you learn!

      So yes, I recommend people upgrade to premium, but not before taking the time to make their own decision about whether it’s right for them or not.

      All the best,

    Nice article! I am trying to get more into the affiliate side of online marketing and keep hitting road blocks. I am going to keep going after it though! This really seems like a great way to make additional income and potentially full time income. I do like there there is not the cost of education because going back to school is so expensive. Thanks for sharing!
