    • HI Md,

      It helps to understand how it is supposed to work, by definition.Then you understand what the discussion is about. Yes, you need to know the basics, and use my #1 Affiliate Marketing Training to learn the details and in-depth knowledge of building a business. You are welcome, and thanks for leaving a comment.

  2. Wow, what an extensive lesson! I just started with fluffy assuming it last week and I can agree that this is by far the best community for making money online. Prior to me joining I spent a little cash on pay per click advertising and as you stated it didn’t work out. Since joining I have learned that it is much more time and cost effective to use SEO techniques to get organic traffic. Sure wish I found your website before spending 500 bucks on ads :-\

    • Hi Vince,

      Sorry to hear you spent that much on ads. That is the problem. Ads need to be highly targeted and they still may not pay off. SEO is free and works constantly for free as long as the article is ranking well. I hope you will stop back, thank you for the comment,

I am sure I now understand the creation of niche and how I can make more money out it. The Affiliate suggestions will also enable people who are interested to skip the part where they need to do another research on how to start with Affiliate marketing and what affiliate offering are better to use. I know it has saved me that time. It’s was a very helpful review.

  6. Affiliate marketing is really one of the best ways to make money online. For anyone just starting online, it is considered one of their best options in making money especially if they decide to create a blog. Of course there are other ways to make money online but affiliate marketing is really easy to start up.

    The only issue I have with it is that it can take sometime before you start getting consistent income when you are making use of a blog/content writing method. Using ads can be fast but it would cost some money and there might be a lot of loss and a small number of gains until one becomes really familiar with the process.

    • Hi Jay,

      Affiliate marketing is one of the few businesses that you can start with almost no money. you can’t do that any other way, because ads cost money, sometimes a lot of money, and there is no guarantee you wiil receive any sales, so why waste your money? If you chose a good niche and pick a product that is popular already, you chances for sales increase dramatically.yes, it does take time, but your time is the one asset you have when you are broke!

    • Hi Ajibola40,

      You are welcome. The online marketplace is full of traps and scams, and learning how they work from my #1 Affiliate Marketing Training, is your best defense against scams.This is not a get rich quick scheme. I had someone tell me I should quit and get into something else if I am not making tons of money. They just believe that an online website will make millions. It’s not going to do that! You can however, make a decent income with some hard work and persistence. 

      Thank you for the comment,

  9. Well thanks for detailing affiliate marketing. I’m a newbie in making money online and just recently heard about it. I’m still in the process of learning and have not yet built my website. Is it really necessary to have a website? Also I’m confused about the niche that I should pick. Do you have a general suggestion how can I pick a profitable niche? Thank you very much.

    • Hi Alblue,

      I am glad you enjoyed the depth of the article.You can do affiliate marketing without a website, but you can’t gain SEO rankings for a Facebook page. A niche is a difficult decision and you should spend a lot of time on it. It needs to be something you will enjoy working on daily. That is most important. Any hobbies you have or would like to research and learn more about is always a good choice. Good luck, and thanks for leaving a comment.


  10. This is a very insightful article and talks about the fundamentals of what affiliate marketing is to its core.

    I actually prefer the business model because of its potential and passivity. Compared to the other business models such as drop shipping or FBA, you have to fulfill the item and handle customer service.

    But with affiliate marketing, you create it; then you can have you earn a lot without ever having to maintain it as much. 

    Thank you for this.

    • Hi JD,

      Glad you found the article useful. I looked at Fulfillment By Amazon – FBA- and decided it was not for me. Yes you can make more money, but it also brings many more responsibilities, just a time consuming J>O>B. Affiliate Marketing lets me sleep better.

      Thanks for stopping and leaving a comment!.


  11. Hi , 

    There are people who don’t know what an Affiliate actually is . People are sometimes scared because of thinking they will end up in a scam or loss, which isn’t always true . The work is just to advertise the products of other companies. After advertising, they will give up a certain amount of money from their profits.

    Customers sometimes don’t understand there is no additional cost for them. Is it important to let them know in the advertising? . Affiliate marketing is very easy and simple, but I know it is a lot of work. 

    If they have any doubt that wealthy Affiliates is a scam, I’m writing this to clear the doubt of the people who think it’s a scam.It is not.

    Thanks for sharing this useful guide.
