Get Your Affiliate Marketing Business Rolling  And Profitable

If you are here then you have at least heard about affiliate marketing, and are curious as to how to make money with affiliate marketing for beginners. Are there affiliate marketing training tutorials? If you have never been exposed to affiliate marketing and have maybe heard about it from your friends or others online, well yes you can make money with affiliate marketing. I’ll do my best to try and explain it. I have listed a very basic outline of how it works

  1. You have a passion or an interest
  2. You advertise for that same passion or interest with a website
  3. You leverage keywords and SEO tools to your advantage to get your site ranked
  4. Traffic comes to your site, you get commissions for stuff that you advertise that sells.
  5. There are many other ways to make money once your site is ranked

I also have a beginners guide to affiliate marketing for 2020 that could help you out. It goes into a bit more detail than this post does. So when you have a few minutes feel free to check it out.

 Let your passion be your guide

You have a passion that you want to share with the world? Do it. Most people that try affiliate marketing and fail, are unsuccessful for 2 reasons.

  1. They are not motivated enough to put in the effort to make it pay off.
  2. They do not have the right information to allow them to be successful

We live the in the instant gratification world and we expect things to happen immediately, well with affiliate marketing you need a bit of patience to go along with the correct information to get you going. If you want it bad enough and stay with it, you WILL make money with affiliate marketing.

Finding a way to attract the people that are interested in what you have to offer is a learned skill but very powerful once you put the passion you have for your chosen niche and the desire to succeed. You can really take a big step forward with your business



You advertise for that same passion or interest with a website:

Building a website sounds daunting, sure just build a website and boom your rich right? We all wish that was the case. If you try and code your way to a website you’re in for a long haul unless you’re a coding freak, which in that case you would probably already have done it. You need a platform or software that help you create what you want without too much hassle. Then you can start to see how the rest of the world lives that has a website or several that generate revenue.

We use the WordPress platform at wealthy affiliate, which is a website platform that makes things very easy to create. Many of today’s websites are created with something similar, which makes them easy to create and get online. the WordPress platform here at wealthy affiliate is partnered with Siterubix for the free website creation. If you decide affiliate marketing is for you, then you can get started anytime by creating a free website right here

    Love the article, starting out as a beginner can be daunting unless you have good training,and as you suggested in your recommended option I like that as well,as a wealthy affiliate member myself I am biased as i agree 100% with you, it is the best affiliate marketing tool out there for new online marketers.

    • Todd says:

      well we are both a bit biased then, because I surely am.. I am still blown away with everything that is here to learn. My business is growing fast , all because I followed the training and to top it all off, it is very affordable so it’s a win win. Glad you are enjoying it.

    Love your article on here. Getting started as a beginner it is nice to know there is information to help.
    I clicked your link to Wealthy Affiliate Review and I agree. WA training is the best online training I have ever experienced. In a wk I already built my website. And not just that, the level training, community networking and support is unbeatable! I am almost seeing myself as an online guru ?
    You have said it all and moreso, your site is easy to navigate and welcoming to visitors.

  4. Mike Haven says:

    Great article. making money online is tough sometimes for beginners, I also saw your recommended option and You are right about Wealthy Affiliate, it is by far the best training/community platform out there. I too, have searched the web for ways to make money at home. Affiliate marketing being one of the options I thought to be one of the better ways to do it. After hours of searching with no results other than scams and unrealistic money making tools and software I came across Wealthy Affiliate. I love the training, it is very informative. You are right about reasons you wont succeed;not putting the time in. You cant do it over night. You have to be passionate about your site and the the things you are promoting. My website,, has not brought any revenue but that’s fine but I do hope my content helps others going through a more common problem than you think. Great article you portray Wealthy Affiliate just as it is. Thanks.

  5. Furkan says:

    Hi I really liked the wealthy affiliate but just want to ask that how secure is their hosting system? I know that many web hosting platforms have many issues. And how is the communication with customer service (via ticket)?

    • Todd says:

      thanks for the comment. WA has a very secure web hosting system they monitor all websites 24 hours per day, offer full redundancy, daily snapshot backups, and if there is any suspicious activity they get to the bottom of it right away. Customer service response is fantastic. and very helpful if any issues pop up they also offer FREE SSL for your site which is un heard of anywhere else.. Just a few clicks and your site is secured.

  6. alham says:

    Hi thanks for sharing all this amazing information really found it interesting.

  7. Pat says:

    You represented WA very effectively. I have been working through the training for about six weeks now and I don’t think the training could be presented more clearly and effectively. I am really excited about getting my website finished so that i can start a new one.
    Best of luck in your endeavors.

  8. Jacob says:

    I think tour webpage is very visually appealing and is filled with dense content that seems to be credible. There is room to grow as it looks rather new but that’s with any new site out there. all in all its a great bit of framework, starting content, and images. Webpage navigation is welly put together and user friendly. keep on moving forward and tweaking the fine details and updating content to future inform the traffic visiting your webpage. Hope this is good feedback and till next time, good luck.
