Are You Taking The Right Path?79aa6f63a3c799a4a746d8ee4323f9e11538667284 cropped 1540225417 optimized - Online Affiliate Marketing Solutions. What Is The Best Route?

If you are looking into affiliate marketing and can’t seem to find the right path to take, believe me you’re not alone. In fact, there are litterally millions of people seeking a part and full time way of earning an income as an affiliate marketer that it can become confusing as to which road to take. And there are plenty of companies out there willing to take your money to show you the ropes. Finding the online affiliate marketing solutions that work can be difficult. 

But is any of that even worth it? 

Here’s what I found out. In my three years as an affiliate marketer I learned that to become successful you have to learn the right way the first time or you will be spinning your wheels and eventually end up giving up. There’s just way too much hype in the industry and not enough substance. Once you pay to learn on many of these platforms, you hear nothing but get a bunch of rehashed marketing tips that you could find anywhere online. 

Is this the right route to take?

No way! And I found out the hard way by writing for people who then used my articles for their affiliate websites. Why didn’t they just write the articles themselves? From one person I asked who I wrote for the simply said they didn’t have the time. I thought, yea but affiliate marketing is really just a lot of writing and promoting through their website. Not so this person said. They were more focused on going out and promoting their products offline and the website was just another vehicle to promote their stuff. 

I knew from the beginning when I started learning affiliate marketing that the key to success had to be by writing content and then getting higher up in the search engines. 

What did I do?

I joined a popular site called Wealthy Affiliate. Before you think it’s just another scam, here me out. I signed up for Wealthy Affiliate and began studying their lessons and watching the videos. Over time it started to make sense. You have to build a website in a niche and then write about whatever product or service you want. But it does take some time. And that’s the key to becoming successful in the arena. 

Do people make money fast in affiliate marketing? 

Some actually do if they choose a less competive niche. I have known people who made money in the first three months but they kept working on their websites and didn’t give up. The ones who quit generally quit within the first six months. 

Why Learn On Wealthy Affiliate?8f1eb85274e8dc856dc80abe7c4f547c1540225456 cropped optimized - Online Affiliate Marketing Solutions. What Is The Best Route?

Because it works, plain and simple. There are ten core lessons on the platform for niche marketers. Study those and implement what you learn and you will be successful. The courses are  easy and really a no brainer. I started in January of 2016 and now my website (this one) makes enough so I don’t have to go out and hustle a regular job. 

Am I getting rich?

No, but the possibilility is there. You just have to keep plugging away. The difference between my site and a niche site is I promote Wealthy Affiliate instead of going the route of selling other stuff. I believe in the platform and it’s worked well for me. But, I had to work at it. I had to write many blogs and to date this site has almost 400 posts on it. It’s taken on a life of it’s own too. 

How much is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate is $49.00 per month but that includes everything you need to build your website. That’s the hosting, the site builder, the domain ($13.00 per year) and then you also get the best keyword tool I have found, Jaaxy. You also have access to live chat help, 24/7 technical support and much much more. For the price it can’t be beat. 

Why choose this platform?

Honestly, I chose Wealthy Affiliate because I saw at the time I joined it had been online for 10 years. The reviews were good and looking at it myself I could tell it wasn’t some flim flam scam that just wanted your money. They didn’t say you would be successful either. They said if you work hard you can be successful. And so that’s what I did and now I feel I have found success through the training and constantly writing on my website. 

Is Affiliate Marketing For Everyone?

I would say it’s for anyone and not everyone. If you are motivated, can find time in a day to update your blog then yes, it can be for you. I remember back a few years I was first on the job, ready to get my feet dirty working as an electrician. I was motivated and worked full days. It was also back breaking work. Now, in my fifties I have to slow down a bit. Being retired at a relatively young age has it’s ups and downs. I need to stay busy. 

Anything takes time and effort.

And that’s what I have told myself as I have worked on this website for the past three years. Anything worthwhile is going to take work and a lot of it. 

Stop thinking get rich quick.

This is a must! To get anywhere in life you have to pace yourself, set goals and reach them slowly but surely. That’s the way you’re going to be successful. The same applies to affiliate marketing. You need to pick a goal and keep going little by little, like I did with this website. 

Affiliate marketing may be for you if you tell yourself positive things and keep going when others quit. That’s what will get you up in the morning and getting to writing on your website. And believe me, people are reading what you put out. This site gets read from all over the world much to my amazment. I have people who ask me questions and leave me comments and it really makes me feel good to know I may be helping someone with what I write. 

Bottom line is this. If you are serious about learning and earning as an affiliate marketer, you need to learn and apply. That’s it. Wealthy Affiliate has a very easy to follow step by step learning university that teaches you what you need to know. That’s all there really is to it. Learn from the best and success will follow. 

Leave me a comment or question and I’ll get back to you asap. 

Here’s to your success.

Complete E-Commerce Business Set-Up- Incl SEO & Marketing Websites. Deal Or No Deal?

Complete E Commerce Business Set Up Incl SEO & Marketingb2ad9d0453a4490aafdedee3f977bed4 cropped 1538667545 optimized - Complete E-Commerce Business Set-Up- Incl SEO & Marketing Websites. Deal Or No Deal?

What is this deal for small website owners? Is it a good deal or is it a complete bogus scam? Well, I checked this out and I have seen and reviewed another one of these done for you sites in the past but I wanted to give this one a look so here goes.

Now what is this complete E commerce business set up including the SEO and marketing? Exactly what it says it is I guess. Now, I haven’t tried this type of opportunity because I am pretty set on building my own website and not much into having someone else do it for me. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a decent deal.

Once I got to the homepage it basically shows you what you get for the basic package which includes everything you would expect in a made for you website. You get the website, the hosting and domain, marketing and logo and content. Here is where I got a little confused. I tried downloading a screenshot but it wouldn’t go which is why I wasn’t able to put it on this blog. But what I wanted and got confused by was the fact that the site comes with premade blogs (content) which is good but I wasn’t told how much content was included. (more…)

Skillshare.com: Learn Or Teach Affiliate Marketing Online

What Is Skillshare.com?47b41850e22685aa30da871a667c3c60 cropped - Skillshare.com: Learn Or Teach Affiliate Marketing Online

Skillshare is another one of those DIY types of sites where you bring your skills to the table and teach others what you know. The platform is an online learning classroom that basically allows you to offer online training to people for a set price. The basic price is $15.00 per month which really isn’t too much and would probably fit anyone’s budget.

But what do you get for your $15.00 per month? 

You get access to 23,000 classrooms to choose from. For the purpose of this blog I wanted to find out if Skillshare had a class on learning affiliate marketing. What I found on first look was a class which was only about 30 minutes which taught “How to be an affiliate marketer with no website.” Interesting. I think I have an idea of what that is. I would suspect that you would learn how to send out links in tweets and small posts on social media. In other words, spam a bunch of people. Not for me, but that doesn’t mean Skillshare isn’t a good choice for affiliate marketers. (more…)

Econsultancy: A Winning Affiliate Marketing Learning Platform.

What Is Econsultancy?

I recently decided to shop around for some of the better affiliate marketing learning programs and searched and found the top ten platforms for 2018. Econsultancy is one of those indepth platforms that teaches individuals and organizations all the aspects of affiliate marketing from learning to write effective content to marketing that content.

The website boast a wide array of different learning modules designed for those who would prefer to learn in a face to face setting or those who choose to learn at home.

The learning at home I liked because since the offline classes are located in Singapore and the UK and me being in the U.S. I think there will be a huge market for affiliate marketing if there isn’t already in the US. And to be honest I was pretty impressed initially with all that was offered.  (more…)
