Are There Any Legitimate Affiliate Marketing Jobs?
You may be looking for side jobs or really just any job in todays economy that doesn’t completely take up all of your time. But is there a job like this? Can you really find a job online in today’s market or are all of them scams? I’ll admit three years ago when I started looking for affilite marketing jobs I was thinking there are way too many scams for me to weed through. It was so overwhelming looking at all of the push button guru bottom feeder jobs that I thought, “Have I really sunk this low?”
I’m not lying either. After having to medically retire from work as an electrician I had to go on disability after a setback. It sucked because I had a steady working career of over 25 years as a military guy and as an electrician. But when the fat lady sings so to speak it was all over for me. Yep, I fell into a funk, a depression and found myself grasping at anything and nothing. I sought some help and they got me somewhat straightened out and then I decided that I didn’t want to sit and rot for the next 20-30 years on disability. Don’t get me wrong I appreciate the safety net but it really sucked having to be sidelined.
A few years ago I started looking into affiliate marketing. I’m sure you have probably heard of it by now. In fact everyone I know has and many of the people I have met along the way are finding a ton of success as marketers. But, what is it and is it legitimate? Yes, it is legit but it does take work. I’m not talking a couple months,more like a year or two to find any real success.
Can it be done from home?
Yes it can but you need patience and you need to learn how to write correctly for affiliate marketing purposes.
Am I making money?
Yes, I do make money monthly on commissions from people who sign up for the platform I learned affiliate marketing on. Message me and I will show you my stats for the day.
Is it fun?
Of course it is if you put your mind to it and don’t take it too seriously.

Are Affiliate Marketing Jobs Easy To Do?
Here is where I guess easy is a relative term. In the sense that affiliate marketing is easy physically…yes. Mentally, well not so much but it’s not that difficult if you put your mind to it. If you pick a niche that you can keep writing at and enjoy it then you can make some pretty good money. But you have to stick it out long term. If you can do that then you can succeed.
If you are serious about making either some side money or a full time income online there is one thing I think I should tell you about succeeding. And that is you must stay consistent with your blog writing and marketing techniques. It’s not hard but if you have other pressing needs and stray away from focusing on your website for long term, your site will fall in rankings. And the lower the rank the less traffic you will get.
It’s easy if you are motivated and want to keep pushing forward building your website. I mean it’s not a hard job. You have noone looking over your shoulders and realistically anyone can do it. It consist of writing and getting comments on your website. And of course promoting whatever it is you want to promote.
Some people have been very successful by working on websites like something as simple as “Boxing Shoes” This niche while fairly popular is not overly saturated by websites so an independant person like yourself could easily become an authority in the niche and people will trust you over time. And that’s when you can really start making a name for your brand and make some good comissions. I do say pick a niche that you will like writing about month after month. If you do that it won’t feel like work.
Tired Of The JOB?
If you are sick of not feeling your are getting what you’re worth, or just plain ol’ fed up with going to a J.O.B. you may want to consider working as an independant affiliate marketer. I won’t say it’s all fun and games but it is a way of earning an income without breaking your back. But first you have to learn and if you can read you can do it.
