What a great choice you are making when you choose to learn affiliate marketing today, to set yourself up for a future of financial freedom.
I’m excited for you and I look forward to working alongside you as your Mentor if you need me along the way.
The Key to a great business is this: You must be prepared to learn the ropes and use the tools provided to build a great site and even though you may be new to this as I was as well, if you do it right from the get-go, you will become a truly successful Affiliate Marketer so let’s get into this.
When I 1st started with Affiliate Marketing, I knew nothing about how to do anything that is needed and today I am successful and love how my life has changed in such a positive way so let’s do the same for you.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
You are going to learn about Affiliate Marketing today by doing what I suggest step by step.
Affiliate Marketing is a simple process and anyone who has a good work ethic can do this.
So, What is Affiliate Marketing?
“A marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays a commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals.
“Most of my earnings are from affiliate marketing, direct ad sales, and referrals to my no.1 training platform”
What this means is: You build a website, you add links, banners, and great content helping people learn about your chosen Niche and when someone visits your site and click on a link, they are then taken directly to the Company, you affiliate with and if they buy a product you recommend, you get paid.
These payments from a lot of different companies bring you income and this income can be quite substantial as you grow your site and learn how to do everything properly.
Choosing the right Training Platform
In order to become great at Affiliate Marketing, I highly recommend you join Wealthy Affiliate Training and go through the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course as this will give you everything you need to create and build an excellent business online.
You can join for FREE to take a look inside and you are also able to do the 1st 10 lessons of the Course for FREE however if you are serious about making a lot of money, do what all the Top Affiliates do and invest in yourself and your business and go premium. If you choose to do this you can choose whether to pay for a month every month or 6 months in advance or yearly and if you choose yearly, you will receive a big discount if you do it this way.
Wealthy Affiliate has over 1.9 million members and if you want to read my review of this platform, please click here.
Set up your Own Business in 15 minutes
1. Choose your Niche
When choosing a niche I always suggest to my clients, they write a list of all the things you enjoy, have knowledge about, or something you have always wanted to help people with.
Niche examples can be Fishing gear, Baby gear, CBD Products, Wellness, Fitness, Camping, Hiking, Biking, Skiing, Music, Gaming, Gardening, Cooking/Recipes, Travel, Personal Development, Natural Healing, Tattoos, Art….. The lists are endless.
When you have chosen your niche, always remember to make sure this niche can be monetized as you build your business.
Don’t limit yourself or your business growth.
2. Choose a Domain name
As a free member with Wealthy Affiliate, you get to have 2 free websites that are subdomains with Site Rubix, however again, if you are really serious about building a business you want the world to know about, I suggest you buy your own domain name with a .com or .net as these sites tend to do better with the search engines. that is not to say that if you build a free site, you won’t do extremely well. I have read some of the success posts from Wealthy Affiliate members with SiteRubix sites and they are making excellent money from these sites but they did go premium to get all the benefits offered to members.
You can create your 1st free website below.
When choosing your domain name for your business, try to keep it as short as possible, check your spelling 3 or 4 times as sometimes when people are excited they misspell their domain names and once it is purchased, you can’t change the name unless you buy a new name of course.
Also, try not to have hyphens like this if you can avoid it: buy – my – doggie- now . com.
Sometimes, you just have to but in my opinion, it looks more professional and easier to remember without hyphens in the name- Think about Google.com, nicke.com, Amazon.com, and all the others out there. Short and punchy to grab attention.
Inside WA, you can buy a domain name for around $13.99 per year and this is fully protected and hosted as part of your premium membership.
3. Choose a theme
Wealthy Affiliate uses WordPress and as a premium member you get to choose from over 3000 themes and as a free member, you get around 4 themes to choose from memory.
Above are just a few of the great themes to choose from and if you want some suggestions, just go to live chat inside Wealthy Affiliate and ask the members which ones they use and they will help you out.
My favorite theme is, Generate Press as it is smart and easy to use and change to suit my business needs.
Ok, you are nearly ready to rock n roll- you have chosen your theme, you have your business domain name so let’s go to the final and most exciting step.
All the steps are there for you inside the training so just relax and know you will be looked after and everything will come together for you so easily.
Ok, it’s time to create your 1st business website and all you do is click the create website button and within around 30 seconds, your website will be there for you to build onto and grow into a business site for you to be proud of.
You can do it!
It really is such an easy and fun process and I look forward to you sharing what you have chosen inside the platform when you do your 1st blog to share your excitement with other members.
The community inside WA is awesome and with over 1900 experts to help you along the way, you are not alone, even though you own your business.
A support team work 24/7, the technical support team are around 24/7 and so are loads of people all willing to make sure members are moving forward without any problems and if you make a mistake along the way (this is normal) the site support team will fix it and you will continue forward.

My 1st video is a little bit old now but I enjoyed putting together 🙂
Yes, it takes time to become proficient in Affiliate Marketing, just like it did when you 1st rode a bike. It takes time to become excellent at anything new you choose to do and the best way to become really awesome at it is to get started and learn everything step by step as you build.
Bonus: Inside WA, you can earn while you learn- Some members pay their membership from the money they are earning inside Wealthy Affiliate. Just saying 🙂
