Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you tired of working 60-hour weeks just to make a living? Or overachieving and working yourself to death to try to please your boss for that promotion you never get? Or maybe you would just like a more relaxed, work-at-your-own-time lifestyle. I have good news friends, I have been where you are and I can tell you self-employment is a perfect option for you.

How to Become Self-Employed

The number one reason people believe they can't become self-employed is because they don't believe they have any special skills or abilities that they have spent years mastering. While starting a business in something you have years of experience in (such as construction, store management, etc) is certainly an option, it is not the ONLY option. For those of you wondering how to become self-employed without those years of experience in a marketable field (those of you like me) the best way to make money is online. While there are certainly many different ways to make money online, I can only tell you about one way that I have personally tried and found successful. This is called affiliate marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing is a self-employed business in which the marketer (you) promotes different products online, and whenever someone buys a product they receive a commission from the company. Now I realize that some of you reading this article are probably thinking "I'm not a very good salesperson!" or "I'm not that great with computers" but hear me out. First I want to emphasize how big the Internet really is! Over 30% of the world uses the internet! That's over 2 BILLION PEOPLE! The internet is the largest marketplace in the world. People search for literally anything online, and you would probably have a hard time thinking of something you could promote the nobody would buy. I just want to make sure you understand how good your chances of success are if you really try to work at this. This being said, this is not a Get Rich Quick scheme. You will not be driving a Porsche of the lot in 2 months and suddenly be making six-figures a month. However, if you are willing to put for the work and time than you can be a successful, self-employed affiliate marketer.

How to Get Started With Affiliate Marketing

Now for those of you interested in what you've read so far, you probably have more questions right now than before you read the article. That is a good thing! There is a learning curve you will have to face in order to become a successful, self-employed affiliate marketer, but it can be done if you're not afraid to work at it.If you want to get started with affiliate marketing, than the best thing to do is to learn some more about different affilia marketing websites. The only one I have ever been a part of and can recommend is Wealthy Affiliate University. Wealthy Affiliate University helped get me started with my self-employment and has a great training program for beginners. If you are intesrest in becoming an self-employed affiliate marketer, than Wealthy Affiliate is difinitaly my number one recommendation for you.

Have a wonderful day
