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.


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?
