How To Make Money Using Affiliate Marketing

Do you have what it takes to become a full time affiliate marketer?

About nine out of every ten people who take a shot at affiliate marketing will never make a sale, and if they do make a sale the odds are they won't end up getting that money because you must meet a certain threshold before the affiliate network will release any payment.

Why are these facts so harsh? The biggest problem that I run across is that people don't know where to go and get the real training they need in order to succeed. 

One thing that I see way too often is people buy into the idea that you can work only a couple hours a day and build a massive empire by copy and pasting a few ads on Google. This misconception was created by misleading marketers who care about nothing but lining their pockets with your hard earned money. If you have ever bought into one of those "get rich quick" schemes that you can buy online then you probably already know what I'm talking about.

Can You Really Make Money With Affiliate Marketing?

Yes you really can make money with affiliate marketing if you know the proper techniques and take the appropriate action. This can actually be one of the most lucrative types of business in the world because of the low start up cost and high rewards.

There are businesses that you buy from in your every day life that have affiliate programs and you just never realized it. Large companies have been using affiliate marketing in their own business for years and you've just never heard about it, I mean why would somebody want to share the techniques that have been secretly making them millions of dollars per year.

How Can I Make Money Online As An Affiliate?

Well there are quite a few different things that are a factor, for starters you either need a computer or access to a computer with internet access. The next two things you need are the knowledge of proper techniques and the motivation to take action and repeat it. 

I found my way when joining the Wealthy Affiliate University and surrounding myself with like-minded marketers to motivate me day in and day out. They gave me the proper training that I needed along the useful tools to help me in my journey. It wasn't until joining there that I learned how to start making affiliate commissions on a regular basis and I actually got my first paycheck from an affiliate network.
