How to Learn Affiliate Marketing [for Free]

A short time ago, I joined an Affiliate Marketing program. A few days ago I built and published this, my first website. All of this came because a friend was kind enough to share an idea with me. The great thing is that I was able to get started and learn how to do this for Free.

Beginning

The first day that I joined I looked around and began familiarizing myself with the company and the Wealthy Affiliate website. I read through some different programs, checked out the Free membership and what I would receive. Included was the 5-course training programs for beginners named the Online Entrepreneur Certification training. I was eager to learn and was comprehending slowly, as this was all new to me even though I have been tinkering with computers and online activities for 20 years.

Starting again

So I set myself a schedule and did my best to follow it. Being currently retired and single I had literally no distractions. And even being retired I knew in order to do this I had to schedule my plan and then work my plan. I would get started after my coffee in the morning and time would fly by. I was beginning to find out about the Community at Wealthy Affiliate. I was meeting new people from all over the world and all walks of life. There will be more about the Wealthy Affiliate Community to come.

After finishing lesson 3, a member of the WA community mentioned the Boot Camp program to me. So I switched to it and went through Phase 1 and the tasks that accompany them.

One of the nice things is the conversations between other people that are part of this company. If you have a question, it is generally answered within just a few minutes.

Back to the first program

Upon finishing Phase 1 of the Boot Camp, I went back and started the Online Entrepreneur Certification training lessons again. The challenge I was having, in the beginning, was choosing my Niche, especially when I didn’t know what the word meant. Now it was all becoming clear to me. I was beginning to learn how to turn your passion into profit.

After a couple of days, I was able to weigh my choices and decide what I could build a site on with one that I was passionate about. What could I build a website on that answers the question does affiliate marketing make money? ANYTHING.

There are thousands of companies that have a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays a commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals because of a website that You or I am hosting.

Did I mention that I was able to do all of this For FREE?

Conclusion

The MMO(make money online) Industry is a huge industry and there is a myriad of ways that you can earn a substantial income. If you are looking for a part-time internet job, internet home jobs, supplementing your personal or retirement income, or wanting to change direction in a new career where you can control your time and your life, then I would highly recommend you take a closer look.  Do you have a particular passion and would like to learn how to turn your passion into profit?  The sky is the limit. And you can get started for FREE.

    • Thank you Max. I have had a lot of time to put more thought into it than I did at the beginning.

      Being in the WA Community and reading comments from scores of successful people every day and viewing other websites on Affiliate marketing help to come up with ideas on how to write my own content. But to get started you need to Get Started. Get started in the Boot Camp and catch up.

  5. The first thing I did when learning affiliate marketing is selecting the niche of interested, that also has a great deal of market potential. Think of what you like and consider whether many products or a large number of the public would be associated with it. A subject (or “niche” as affiliates call it) with a little research can be found. I’m not yet at the boot camp and can’t wait to start my training to generate more traffic and monetize my website.

    • Louis, you have definitely come to the right place. I had a 5 month setback because of hurricane Michael, but during that time with my smartphone I was able to check out other online businesses and found none that would even compare with what WA has to offer. 

      Plan your work and Work your Plan.

  9. Nice review. I’m already in the journey. The journey to financial freedom through wealthy affiliates which started few months ago. It feels good to be fully incharge of your life and your schedule. That’s why I am struggling my way out here to build a business of my own which will last forever.

  10. Hi there. Wow, thanks to you for inspiring me to start working on my first website once again. I’m still currently searching for the best niche for the website. I guess I’ll just have to go through the training like you did. Can you kindly give out tips on the best template for my website. Thanks

    • Alex, thank you for the comment. I would suggest that you get that website going again. Get the Site Health up first. Content, Content, Content. Niche? Whatever your Passion is.

      And as far as a template, I would say it is whatever appeals to you. There are a number of them to chose from. I think I have already changed mine 4 times. Keep searching until you find the right fit.

  11. This article is very interesting. i really like how you have written your journey about joining Wealthy Affiliate. It is difficult at first, but with the training provided you will become more confident about how to use WA to help you create your own income. I haven’t yet tried Boot camp but i am very curious to see what can be learnt from boot camp and might even give it a go!

    • Thank you for your comment. One thing about letting people you have never met knowing about your journey. You never know what their journey is unless you share something that touches them that they have experienced the same exact thing. 
      There is a lot more that I can add to my journey which will probably come forth as the site grows. Similar experiences often bring people together. 

      Plan your work and Work Your Plan.

  12. Lots of people look for ways to make money online.

    They all search and search and usually waste a bunch of money because of the things that people say about different methods.

    What most people don’t offer is exactly what you do.

    You told them your EXACT journey so far, and that will definitely be appreciated by anyone just starting out in the online world.

    Thanks for the good read and the honest truth.

    • Thank you Tyler. I was at one time one of those searching. I found WA and my prayers are that through me others can find it also. 

      Truth is the Most important thing in life.
